In a leafy square just off La Rambla, the Sant Agustí bills itself as the oldest billet in Barcelona—built in 1720 as a convent and reborn as a hotel in 1840. Rooms are small but pleasantly designed, with sunny blond wood, cream white bedspreads and hardwood floors; some rooms have the original beams and brickwork exposed. Avoid the rooms on the lower two floors: shell out just a little extra instead, for the top-floor loft, with a skylight and breakfast table.

This is a very reasonable and nice place to stay that's close enough to the Ramblas, but thank-God not right on it. That would be way too crowded and noisy. The staff were very pleasant and accomodating. Breakfast was decent. Room was not extravagant by any means, but clean, comfortable and everything worked. We'd stay there again for sure!

Stayed here in November last year. This had to be the smallest room I've ever stayed in. The decor was very 70's and needed an update. Double bed was tiny. The view consisted of a back yard. I did however notice some rooms seemed to be renovated, but they obviously hadn't gotten around to mine yet. The hotel was very noisy, we could here people tramping on the floor above us every morning. The toilet also was hard to flush and was also very noisey.
If you're looking for a hotel with a great location, you can't beat this, but I wouldn't stay here again.
