A little hideaway in the pungent fishermen's quarter of Barceloneta, this hotel is surprisingly clean and crisp. Rooms are small, with pale blue walls and bedding, and equipped with somewhat matchstick furnishings, but most have views over the Barcelona harbor. Five minutes from the beach and with an excellent restaurant and a generous, caring family at the helm, it's a budget winner.

Our room faced a narrow back street where all the kitchen vents aired, and in Spain frying starts early. Our window had scaffolding and we woke up every morning to the noise of stucco falling down. The floor wasn't terribly clean and the sheets had the texture of coarse paper. This is not a comfortable place, it's for guests who really cannot afford anything else.
