    Good location, clean, but noisy

    The hotel is in a really good location, and is relatively fresh and clean. However.. the walls are paper thin, so people coming back and forth the reception area which is located in the middle of all the rooms is very noisy. The reception area staff also leave at 9pm, returning the next day at 8am, so during this time you will often get groups gathering in the reception area making noise. 1 night we actually had a male knocking on all the doors at 2am as he’d lost his key. So I would say probably don’t expect a good night’s sleep here. The bathroom unfortunately also has a frosted glass swing door, as opposed to a proper one, so not a great deal of privacy. Overall it was ok.. basic, noisy but clean enough. Could definitely do with a full length mirror in the bedroom..or even just a mirror other than just the 1 in the bathroom! Also needs some hooks to hang stuff on, both in the bathroom and in the bedroom, as we had nowhere to hang towels, coats, bags, etc. (Apart from hooks located within the actual shower cubicle).

    Best Place to Stay

    Som Nit Born is a hostel with private rooms and private bathrooms. It was an “oh so pleasant” surprise. I didn’t know it was a hostel when the reservation was made, so I was somewhat apprehensive when I discovered it was a hostel. There were 3 of us in the room. It had 3 beds in a spacious room with a nice bathroom. Because it was private, they cleaned the rooms. It’s located in an entertainment district with lots of restaurants and shopping. The managers were nice and helpful. It’s a great place to stay and I I highly recommend it and would definitely stay again.

    Very enjoyable stay

    My daughter and I stayed for 2 nights. Som Nit Born exceeded our expectations. It’s quiet, clean, spacious, good air conditioning, small fridge in room, spacious bathroom with great shower. Staff are very friendly. The building is newly renovated, with elevator. I phoned on the day of arrival as our eta was after 9pm. It was no problem. I received clear instructions where to collect the key (hotel very nearby), which was efficient. Great location in trendy El Born, Picasso museum 7 min walk, good breakfast, brunch and tapas places around. Good value for money. I highly recommend and would stay there again.

    Amazing hotel with a central location

    Location was AMAZING, we were able to leave our bags at the apartment for the morning as we arrived too early for check in - the receptionist was very helpful. We had a lovely room with a balcony!! Offered to clean our rooms everyday. Overall hotel was all that we could want and more.
