This student residence is located in Avenida Parallel at the corner with Blasco de Garay in the Poble Sec district. It is just a 10-minute walk to Las Ramblas and Barcelona's old town of Ciutat Vella. The Ciutat Vella takes in the Barri G˛tic area and the world-famous promenade of Las Ramblas. The former is the city's medieval core, a maze of atmospheric alleyways clustered around the splendid Gothic cathedral. Quirky specialist shops and atmospheric bars and eateries abound. The Museu Picasso and the Museu d'Hist˛ria de la Ciutat are particularly worth visiting.
All the rooms are equipped with a small private en suite bathroom, shelves, hangers, an individual safe box deposit (for rent) and WLAN Internet access. All rooms have been especially designed to encourage rest and relaxation, thanks to their modern dÚcor. Towels and bed linen are provided, but the room cleaning service is only available for stays of one week or more.
Guests can only pay by credit card. The residence accepts MasterCard and VISA.
From the airport take the bus in front of the terminal building and get off at Plaza Espanya. Take the metro line 3 in the direction of Canyelles and get off at Poble Sec.
