Stayed in 2 rooms at Margot House with my mom and teenage son over the winter holidays. The location is ideal. It’s in a great neighborhood and right off one of the metro/train stops. Our rooms looked out at one of the Gaudi designed buildings, across the street. Over our few days here we grew to appreciate leaving the bustle of the city to return to this small, peaceful hotel. The staff was very friendly and went out of their way to help us. The breakfasts were wonderful with a wide spread of choices. There is some noise transfer from the street but we didn’t find it kept us up at night. If you are noise sensitive, their inner rooms (less natural light though) would be a good option. They have a great family suite which they showed me where you could sleep up to 6 or 7 and have 3 adjoining spaces. The wood on the bathroom sinks and floors hasn’t worn well but the rest of the interior design is lovely, modern and tasteful. The bed was quite comfortable.

The Margot House had a very cool vibe. The hotel is modern and the room very good for our needs. The bed was great with good linens. We were given a bottle of wine and beer/coke upon arrival The bathroom was good looking but we felt somewhat concerned with safety due to concrete floors with narrow spaces and multiple levels. The location is right across from a Gaudi on the main boulevard, above a Macdonalds. This was walkable to everything we wanted to see. That being said bring earplugs because it did get noisy. The staff was very good and recommended and arranged everything we needed. We passed on the breakfast feeling the 25 euros was a bit steep for what was provided. We did go to the breakfast restaurant 4 blocks away which they recommended "Eat my Trip" which was amazing! The hotel is on the 2nd floor of a building and required being buzzed in every time so no real lobby. Clearly there are pros and cons for staying here.
