Positive Reviews

Location is key.

Close to Las Ramblas, Plaza Catalunya, the university and Metro links, guests found Pension 45 to be fantastically located, making it easy to explore all of Barcelona.

Basic, but clean and good value.

Those travelling on a budget may find good value here; as long as they keep in mind that the rooms and shared bathrooms are basic, but also clean and tidy.

Friendly staff help around the clock.

Although a few guests did not find the receptionists particularly welcoming, the majority of guests dismissed this, finding them to be nice and friendly sorts who were available 24 hours and ready to help whenever.

Negative Reviews

Noise and no A/C combination.

According to reviews, guests found Pension 45 Construction to suffer from noise from the streets outside, which when combined with the lack of air conditioning meant you could be rather hot at night (even with the fans provided) or you could try to sleep through the noise.

Entrance a little hard to find.

Guests said that the entrance can be a little bit hard to find, so make sure you take some good directions with you when you head to check in.

Beds not the best, basic digs.

A few of those who stayed said the beds were hard and uncomfortable and the hotel facilities overall were basic and possibly needing renovation, but for the price most did not mind, and others looking for luxury should look elsewhere.
