This hotel is very conveniently located within a 5-6 minute walk to the “Clot” Metro subway station in a very safe comfortable neighborhood. The hotel has been recently remodeled. Rooms are a bit small by American standards but adequate.
The breakfast came with our rooms and offered a great assortment of beverages, breads, meats (cold and hot) , fruits, bake goods and juices. You will not go away hungry.
The Metro provide very economical, safe, quick transportation. Purchase the 10 –ride pass at its only $1.05 euros per ride.
Do not buy ham or sausages to bring back to the USA. The vendors will tell you "no problems" but if you declare it at customs they will confiscate meats.
Note that Parc Guell and Sagrada Familia both issue time sensitive tickets, giving you a 30 minutes window to enter. We went and tickets were sold out for the day at Park Guell and for the next four days to Sagrada Familia. We were able to purchase a ticket on line for both venues from a ticketing agency for the 50% premium.
The hotel may be rated 3 stars by amenities but we received 5 star service. As first-time tourist to Barcelona we had a lot questions.More
