We spent 5 days at the hotel in what is a charming, laid-back part of Barcelona, about a 15 minute walk from Las Ramblas. I am a Premium Member of the Best Western chain and was not disappointed. The room had all the modern conveniences one would expect (safe, refrigerator, very attractive comfortable and modern furniture and it was well stocked with the usual toiletries). My favourite part of the room was that it had a huge window that opened for fresh air and even though we were on the street side, the traffic noise was not a nuisance on our upper floor. One slight discomfort...the toilet was located awkwardly in a corner facing a close wall and it required some agility to use it, even though I am of average height and weight.
The room was not available when we arrived, but the staff offered a professional greeting and stored our luggage for a few hours. The lobby is bright, welcoming and has complementary water and snacks and has a very good washroom. The price was reasonable for the time of year and the fact that it is close enough (about a 10 minute walk) to the metro. There are plenty of bars and restaurants in the area to choose from in the evening, so you do not have to wander far after a long day of sight-seeing. It is close enough to Sants train station for a short taxi ride though it is quite a walk (at least 30 minutes) on foot.
We did not avail ourselves of the breakfast. The price was high and there were many small authentic restaurants in the area which were cheaper and more interesting. There is a wonderful large fresh market about three blocks towards the station and a small grocery store right next door to the hotel.
This would perhaps not be a good option for someone with mobility issues who wanted to be close to the action, but it proved to be perfect for us who enjoy walking and soaking up the local not-so-touristy atmosphere. less
