The location is perfect, about 10 minutes walk to the Gothic Quarter. All the alleyways around the hotel are charming, with small green spaces as well. The neighborhood is quiet. The room is clean, well equipped, the bathroom is huge. The only inconvenience is the random placement and lack of power sockets. The gym is adequate. I would recomend this hotel based on its location.

We really like this well priced hotel in Born. Staff are lovely. Clean, great breakfasts and super comfy beds. Quiet at night. Great area; busy & good selection of bars & restaurants without feeling too touristy.
