You get what you pay, we all know that- but it this case for a cheap hostel we had a very comfortable stay. It was clean and tidy with friendly staff plus a little bit of free breakfast. I would go back and am happy to recommend as decent accommodation on a budget.
"FABULOUS hotel! Would stay again in a heartbeat!!"
I visited this hotel with a few friends and loved it! The location, across from the Boqueria Market, is unbeatable. The hotel is spotlessly clean. The rooms are small, but very modern, extremely clean and comfortable. The staff are amazing, extremely friendly and helpful. They helped us with our bags on the stairs, offered great recommendations and directions and were generally friendly and helpful whenever we needed assistance. I would recommend to anyone!
We stayed for seven nights in late October, in a standard room. It was so perfect we wondered if we had been given an upgrade. But no, just a lucky large one (209). We had two sets of French doors with little balconies looking down onto the side lane and up into the square where the school children play. With the doors closed, we heard no noise at night. There was a desk to work at, and a chair to lounge in. The room appointments were beautiful. The bathroom was spacious, with constant hot water and good pressure The bed linen was great, as were the pillows. We booked breakfast for the first morning, and it was so good we had it for the rest of our stay. We only dined once in the restaurant, and it too was excellent. The staff were always pleasant and very helpful, even at 5am when we had problems with an international business call. The location was perfect. We could walk almost everywhere. What more can we say? Hotel Neri was like a dream. We would love to return.
We had a fantastic time in Barcelona due in part to the location of this room! We stayed in the middle of the old city and everything you need for a relaxing holiday was within walking distance! Toni was very nice and chatty on arrival though we did have to wait for her as we arrived around an hour earlier than our checkin time, however she got there very quickly after I phoned. She drew us a map of the typical tourist locations and told us lots of info about the area, and the room and where to avoid going at night which felt like she was trying to scare us sometimes - both helpful and worrying! The room was cleaned everyday and bedding and towels replaced and even pots washed!. I did expect the room to be bigger from the pictures but it was more or less square. Small bathroom but we managed to utilise it just fine. Also, just a warning, if you were expecting a balcony to sit out on like us you will be disappointed as the chairs in the room just don't quite fit - we were also advised not to use the roof terrace as this is where the cleaner hangs washing etc. so that's off limits too despite being advertised. The kitchen had all of the necessary equipment to cook a meal for two though we only really used the fridge and kettle! We grew to like to room for what it was and that's mainly just a bed for the night. It seemed very safe at all times.
We needed a place for a few hours before a flight, so just quickly reserved based on location without checking reviews. Big mistake. Awful place, the bathroom is shared with eight rooms and has a tiny shower that you can't even fit into. Great Mexican place downstairs though........
This comfortable apartment is in a building of high ceilings, very characteristic of the classic constructions of Barcelona …More
