Positive Reviews

Clean, comfortable, basic accommodation.

Guests found Pension Solarium's rooms to be comfortable, clean, simple and of a decent size, and the shared bathrooms were likewise thought to be well-kept. People also appreciated having common areas to relax in, including a nice terrace, as enjoyed the quality Wi-Fi and the cheap prices.

Friendly staff, even if English not best.

You will find the staff members to be friendly and very willing to help, and even though their English is not the best, guests found they were able to get by.

Just off Las Ramblas.

Guests said the guesthouse is found down a side street, just off Las Ramblas, a few minutes from Drassanes Metro, Liceu Theatre, and the Boqueria Market, and within walking distance of the port and the beach.

Negative Reviews

No air conditioning, or can be cold.

The lack of air conditioning at Pension Solarium meant that some guests found the rooms hot and stuffy, and opening the windows did not help, due to the street noise this invited in. On the flip side, a few other guests said the rooms can be a little cold in cooler months.

Night-time noise.

Although some guests did not experience any such problems, the area can experience some night-time noise, so ensure to bring your earplugs, or ask for a quieter room if you are very noise sensitive.

Old building, no lift.

The building itself was thought to be in poor condition by some guests, and there is no lift, so be prepared for a fair number of steps to the third or fourth floor every time you come home.
