The Residence is 3-5 mins walk

The Residence is 3-5 mins walk to the subway station- Mundet. It takes 20 mins to downtown-Plaza Calalunya by Metro, quite convenient. The room is clean and very quiet. The location is safe for a girl like me traveling alone. Breakfast is very good, lots of choices. Strongly recommend this Residence if you have tight buget!

Nice location next to the olympic

Nice location next to the olympic velodrome where Chris Boardman won gold. Good breakfasts. We stayed in a superior twin room which had a TV but no drink making facilities, although vending machines were nearby. We slept well with no disturbances.

Nice hotel with reasonable price.

Nice hotel with reasonable price. Cleaning every 3 days. Free internet in ground floor (but slow). Breakfest OK. No special facilities - this is student hostel. Very quiet. Ten minutes to metro which go 15 minutes to the center.

Great to be able to park your

Great to be able to park your car right outside in a Hotel in Barcelona. Good location, close to public transportation. Breakfast was reasonable. At times though i didn't enjoy being surrounded by drunk and disorderly university students, it created a strange atmosphere.

This place was perfect for us

This place was perfect for us as we were in a car. It is in a nice area just outside the city but 5 mins walk from the Metro Station. There is ample free street parking and the rooms are exceptionally clean. It is mainly student accommodation and has that feel to it. The breakfasts are good and the staff are helpful.
