Modern and rather pretty with its spare black-and-white decor with pops of red, this pleasant and functional hotel, just a 7-minute walk from La Sagrada Familia, is a breath of fresh air in a neighborhood where most lodgings have grander pretensions. Rooms are compact, so don’t plan on spreading out, but they’re tidy and bright, and the staff is cheerful. Lacking a restaurant or even a cafeteria (there is a breakfast room), the hotel only gets two stars from the official rating agency. That’s okay—it guarantees a lower price for a quality lodging. You can rent a bike for 16€ per day.
