I was worried when saw the reviews but it depends what room you get, as often is the case! It’s annoying they don’t tell you in advance you have to check in at the hotel round the corner (chic Bonn) so you can go straight there. Staff at check in were nice. They gave me a room however that was right next to the front door and the common area even though i requested a quiet room. This was a tiny room (no26) like some of the pics where can’t fully open door as bed in the way but was expecting this. It wasn’t too tired or had broken things though as some reviews have mentioned. They’d changed me to room 20 which was perfect, furthest away from the entrance and way bigger, maybe a more expensive room if they offer that. Yes you can have people entering their rooms so the sound proofing isn’t great but we slept fine. The beds are firm but I like this. The AC works ok but you can’t turn lower than 19 which id have liked. The common area has tea, coffee and water which is great, plus they leave you juice and water in room. Overall, knowing Barca like Paris is expensive and you get small rooms, this was great once in the larger room.

Rooms are too small especially for 2 people with 2 luggages not able to move inside the room (at least the one we stayed). Reception is 2-3 mins far from the hotel entrance. You have to go there first then come back to the hotel place after check-in. Hotel's general use areas seems clean but not the rooms. Guy at the reception desk is nice guy. Hotel is a little bit expensive than the other accomodation options but it doesn't worth. At least not for us. Location is good. Close to metro and bus stations. Also you can reach to the city center with 20-25 mins on foot. They have cookies and coffee machines in general use areas which is fine.
