Pros, Lovely reception and cleaning staff Great breakfast Spotlessly clean Great tooftop Well maintained building Negatives, The surrounding area, very run down Lack of privacy, if you are travelling alone its fine. With a partner or friend far less suitable. A family together, totally inconvenient and hard work, I emailed ahead and asked for a room with more privacy if possible. This was not accommodated, and we spent a week turning lights off and hiding / playing music / looking the other way.

I stayed at this hotel back in 2018. We arrived to the hotel from the airport. As we were walking in I noticed a man walking from the elevators. No more than 5 minutes passed since we had walked into the hotel and while waiting in line, inside the hotel, to check in I was pickpocketed. I managed to see the same man speed walking out of the hotel so I chased after him. He turned the corner of the building and was gone. How is it possible that this person was inside the hotel? Are hotel employees working with the pickpockets? Hotel didn’t care. Police didn’t care. While waiting in the lobby trying cancel all my cards an older couple walked in crying. They were pickpocketed while walking through the park next door. Their cash, ID’s and passports were all taken by pickpockets. This was back in 2018 so can’t even imagine how much worse it has gotten. Barcelona is infested with pickpockets. Would not recommend this hotel or staying around this ghetto neighborhood. Stay safe out there people.
