Not great - all the rooms are different sizes shapes and facilities yet the same price???
You cannot book a good room and the worst room is really bad.

Historical Traveler Reviews H10 Raco Del Pi Barcelona
Trawled the internet to find a last minute deal for Barcelona and ended up at the Raco Del Pi a bit by default.
The Taxi driver said he couldn't drop us off at the hotel door as it was a pedestrian street but the hotel is just a short 5 minute walk.
After our "welcome" cava drink we were given our room. Placed on the top floor with a small window and a sky light wasn't a problem for us given all the other pluses to this hotel.
It was really centrally located the cathedral just 2 streets away and the nightlife a short stroll. The staff were very helpful and friendly and the atmosphere relaxed. If you are looking for a central hotel which is very comfortable and reasonably priced I don't think you can do much better!!
Shame about the showers
Well situated but plenty of problem with the showers which were barely warm. If you were late using them expect them to be cool. Fine in summer but not so nice in a cool February. Despite letting staff know and it being 'fixed' the temperature did not alter at all. It spoilt the stay. The first night we were moved to another hotel as there had been a leak in 'our' room so I believe they do have a boiler/heating/water problem.
This hotel is superbly located - less than five minutes walk from La Rambla and a Metro stop, and just around the corner from the Cathedral.
From this hotel, it is easy to explore all the main sites of the city, and retains a lot of character amid the squares and charm of the gothic quarter. The hotel itself is simple and stylish and, whilst not luxurious, provides everything for the tourist looking for something far beyond the basic. Although the rooms are not the largest, they are well furnished with high standards of cleanliness, hygiene and comfort.
The hot and cold buffet breakfast provides a good choice, with a high level of care taken for the quality and presentation. The service offered in all areas was always prompt and polite. Overall - an excellent base to explore the city.
Fantastic location, fantastic staff
Went to Barcelona for a last minute Christmas break. The H10 Raco Del Pi is in the Gothic Quarter, without doubt the lovliest area of the city. It's a great hotel, lovely rooms (get one that faces the central courtyard if you can), quiet, and the desk staff are wonderful. They all speak perfect English, and are always happy to recommend (and book) restaurants etc. We were only there for 3 nights but felt like we could have stayed for weeks! (P.S. don't bother with Ramblas - it's good as a central point for getting your bearings, but far too touristy and expensive. Stick to the Gothic Quarter, explore the narrow streets and find all the beautiful little squares filled with friendly cafes, restaurants and quirky little shops!)
Good location and competent staff
On our arrival they gave us a small room on 4th floor. The day after we asked and obtained to move to a bigger room on the same floor. Seems like all the rooms on 4th floor have windows at the floor level.
There's a free internet access at the bar. The staff, especially Martin, was kind and competent.
Excellent hotel, central location, goods service, contemporary bedrooms and decent bathrooms. Good value for money.
By the end of our stay we loved this little hotel but we had some reservations initially. It is 2 blocks from the main road on a mainly pedestrian street. Our taxi driver would not or could not drive to the hotel and dropped us two blocks away. The area around the hotel in the Barri Gothic looked unsafe and unsavory. The very friendly and helpful staff assured us that is was safe. It turned out to be safe and a fantastic location of narrow winding streets with historic treasures around every corner. The hotel itself is small but architectually fasanating. We had two rooms, 1 was large 1 was smaller. They weren't the cleanest rooms we've had but were tolerable. A/C was fine when it got going. You need to leave the room key in a slot to work the electric which means you can't run the a/c when you're out of the room.
Included breakfast was good and sociable. For the price, thi was a great bargain. By the time we left, we felt like it was our home. Also, the staff had no problem having a taxi pick us up at the door. I would call ahead to make sure that your taxi can drop you at the door - we may have just had a bad taxi driver.

Had another great fast train ride at 79 euros its pretty good - class preferential.
Lovely way to see the country side.
My hotel is right in the old gothic area surrounded by small streets and historic buildings - also next to the main walking street - las ramblas.
My first room was the smallest in the hotel - small double bed against …
... he checked the bill to discover it was about 180 Euros..... Ugh.....
Why.... Try... being charged for a salad we didn't get ... and 22 arinchini balls instead of 2 !!!!
In the end the total cost was $71!!! But it did liven up Gazza's life up for a while. In the end the owner gave us all a complimentary Lemoncello liqueur and didn't charge us for the pizza....so it was all good in the end....
We walked home.... thinking, thanks Barcelona we enjoyed our quick ...
... Barcelona, she helped cheer me up and looked after me the last time I was here so I wanted to shout her a few drinks to say thank you. Turns out one of the other girls in the other van is friends with her and was texting her to met up as well. Yet again it's a small world! Lauren took us out on the town, we spent most of the time at a club that played funk music which was a bit different but good. A few of us went back to her place ...
... photos here even though we don't visit until tomorrow. Cocktail hour with the Curries follows and afterwards we head out for supper at an Italian pizza place. As we recount our tales of the day, Curries were unfortunately victims of a pickpocket. Thank goodness the thief did not steal a large amount of money but nonetheless not a great feeling for them. We become even more vigilant with our belongings, especially in public ...
... wine glasses 2 chopping boards,some silicon oven gloves, cutlery and cooking utensils I think we are almost done for kitchen stuff I just need a colander, sieve peeler and tin opener but these I can get from some cheapo shop later on. After having a good look round the streets on one side of the road I needed the ladies and having the buggy with me and no knowing the area I had to head back home, by this time Alfred was having his afternoon nap so perfect timing. ...
