Totally agree with the previous reviewer on the ear plugs part! Not having aircon was not an issue as the temperatures were around 20C at night, however this was still warm enough and we wanted to keep windows open for some fresh air. However, the busy and loud bar nearby, one night with live music made it impossible to sleep with the windows open until at least 1am. We had to shut the windows tight, in cooler months this would not be such a problem. Will also be okay if you stay out until late!
The location is fantastic - 5 min to Cathedral of Barcelona, 5 min walk to the Travel Bar (meeting point for the free walking tours), Museum of Picasso up the same Princesa St, 20-30 min walk to the beaches, plenty of nice shops in El Born (clothing, jewellery, etc). This could definitely make us return to this place again.
The facilities were simple, but clean. Nice spot for a short stay. We did not have breakfast as it was basic, but the price is still reasonable compare to the similar properties in the area, so you can enjoy your breakfast in one of the local coffee shops.
