we stayed at the jazz hotel for christmas and new year, superb hotel, weve stayed at the 1898 before but we preferred the jazz for its location, 1 minute from the bus stops, one minute from the metro, fantastic. the rooms were excellent and not a lot of street noise considering how busy the road is. very helpful staff who spoke perfect english, compared to our awful spanish and couldnt do enough to help in any way. only point I would add would be the TV only has 1 english channel on it, (as far as we could see) not a major problem of course but very minor…. Weve already booked again for a spring break and are about to book for our summer in barcelona too. would recommend this hotel to anyone wanting a great stayu in barcelona.
