    Nice quiet hotel just off Las Ramblas

    Spent one night here and found the hotel to be nice and clean. It is located just off Las Ramblas yet we found it to be very quiet. Rooms are a decent size and we had balconies in both rooms. Shower was excellent and staff was friendly.

    Nice decent hotel

    from

    My boyfriend and I stayed from Sep 14-17. The hotel is in a good location. We asked for a new room and we got a decent basic new room, it was clean and nice, we had no problems. I found the staff friendly and helpful, they showed us exactly where to go. What I liked was the all vegetarian restaurant "Organic" accross the street since we love vegetarian food.

    Wouldn't stay again

    from

    Location was good, but I hated the hotel. I asked for room in the new section, as suggested, but the got a small, loud room that had a small window into the elevator shaft. I asked to switch the next night and the room was slightly better, but still not good. Not worth the money.

    Good Location

    from

    We have stayed in this hotel from September 17-23 2003. We were very fortunate as we were allocated the "new" (going to be worn out pretty soon) rooms. The new rooms are bigger than the old ones.However, the hotel is not very well maintained and very clean (3/5 only). The floors and toilet were not mopped or even vacuum every day. You will need to request for it if you are going to stay there for many days. Anyway, the whole city is very dirty and lots of flies and dog **** around. Got to be careful where you step.The best thing about the hotel is the location. The Hotel is in La Ramblas and away from the noisy crowd. Some of the hotel is along the street and can be very noisy especially during the weekend.

    Don't go

    from

    We stayed at hotel principal for one night and it was a terrible night!

    The bathroom was dirty. the airco didn't work and the hotel was quite noisy, we could hear our neighbours fight! Positive: friendly staff, in the center of Barcelona I would reccomand: Hostal opera, just around the corner: cheap, fresh and friendly

    Good base

    from

    Stayed in a new room 27th April. Good size bedroom with nice bathroom. Bar and dining area basic. Excellent quiet location just of the Ramblas. Well worth considering

    Hotel Principal

    from

    An inexpensive, clean and very nice place to stay. Easy walking to museums, restaurants, Gothic Quarter, Gaudi and the Metro. On a quiet street. Breakfast buffet, while not elegant, was filling and friendly. Ask for the "new section" or a "quiet room" as the hotel also caters to school-age tour groups.

    Well Placed. February 15/03

    from

    Well placed to tour the city with buses and metro just a few hundred yards away or within easy walking distance to a lot of attractions. The Hotel is in a side street just off the Rambla, our room was very clean, comfortable and quiet of a night, the dining room was also clean and bright and gave you a good start to the day. Couple of tips: get the bus from the airport (3.45) to the top of the Rambla then 10 mins walk, ask for a 'New Room' when you book.

    Well...

    from

    We did have a few problems: the window was small, and looked into a disused and smelly lift-shaft; it was dirty in places; our shower didn't work; the bathroom didn't have a lock. It would be unfair not to write about its positive points: the small balcony was a pleasant addition; the seating area was pleasant; and there was a nice lady on reception a couple of times.

    Clean, Central and Cheap!

    from

    This hotel is excellent value for money. The rooms and bathrooms are clean and well equipped, and rooms at the back are quiet. You can walk to Rambla, Plau Gruelle and the Gothic Quatre. Location is very convenient. There are good Japanese and organic restaurants on the same street. Also offer free internet service which was extremely useful. Highly recommended.

    In Spain at last

    A travel blog entry by wendymoz on May 29, 2014

    The rain in Spain fell mainly on the plane!
    arrived in Barcelona to dull and damp, but now at 6pm lovely and sunny.
    Elwyn and Steve have arrived also from Dubai. Now off to try one of the tapas bars that abound near La Rambla. More food shops than I have ever seen in one area. Exploration of this diverse city starts tomorrow.

    ... The park was established in the mid 19th Century and for decades was the only green area of the city, making it a very popular place of locals. The fountain took 6 years to construct from 1882 – 1888. We continued our journey on the map and walked a far distance around the outside of the park and connecting zoo heading towards Richards recommended lunch spot – ...

    The New Me Already Beginning to Emerge

    Only three days into my New Me Tour, I am already feeling better and looking a little better! Part of it is, of course, being off by day and working at night, a lot comes from water, water, water flushing out all the bad, but of course, I am also eating fully organic--so no pesticides, no gmos, no processed articifical ingredient foods, no deep fried whatevers, etc. It is easier to do in Spain where GMOs ...

    Sunday, my last full day in Barcelona was a day for exploring the unexplored. With my friend to guide me, we went in search of all the sights I couldn't leave without having seen, and relished every second of it. First, the Picasso Museum. Next, the beach, and my first ...
