If you want to stay in prison go there. The room has no AC, only a fan. So, if you are here in the summer, it's suffocating. I opened the window to get air, which is facing a (covered) courtyard!!! The people next window cook all the time smelly food, the next window people were watching TV and smoking all night, so you get smelly, smoky air into your room. It was HOT, the weather outside is cooler but no way to get here. There is only 1 shared bathroom for this floor, I've never seen a shared rooms share only 1 bathroom that has only 1 basin, 1 WC and 1 shower room all in one bathroom! Why don't they put at least a basin in each room, I guess 5 rooms share this facility! I don't recommend booking the shared rooms, unless you don't mind sleeping in a place where you can't breathe.
The staff was good, the receptionist was helpful and kind. The location is at the corner of Urgell station where you get metro/buses to Airport, Catalunya and elsewhere. There are many restaurants and cafes around the hotel, it's a walking distance to many attractions/areas of Barcelona. Only location is good about this hotel, everything else is terrible.
