I have just spent 5 days at Hostal Martina and have loved it here. I had a large room with original tiled floor and decorative plaster work ceiling, plus my own bathroom, plus a little balcony out the quieter side at the back of the building. Yes it was hot and no air con, but A fan was supplied, so... More

I really loved this! I have been staying in massive share bunkbed rooms for the past 2 months, so when I got to Barca I wanted to upgrade for a couple days to a private room... I can only attest to what I saw: the bedroom I had had beautiful stained glass windows, a balcony, quaint furniture, a super comfy... More

The owners are lovely, very helpful and welcoming. When we arrived we were shown on maps where we were, how to get back and how to get the main attractions - my friend speaks Catalan and Spanish so this was really helpful. We stayed in a double room which had one double bed and one single, we were asked if... More

We stayed at hostel martina for 4 nights in may. The room was large and clean but as others have said, very basic for the price paid. The bathroom was also very small. We stayed at the back of the hostel where we were told it would be quieter - however, it was very loud during the day and sounded... More

I stayed a few times in this place, seduced in the first place by its Modernist setting (I go to Barcelona for work once a month) and with no time to search for somewhere else. The place is basic but not too big and has two nice exterior rooms (the rest are interior, most of which have no outside window).... More

We visited Bcn for four days in May - three days it was pouring rain, one day sun shone. This really affected our experience about both city and the hostal. If it was a great sunny times, I believe this hostal would have been perfect. But as it was really cold and wet outside, unfortunately the hostal was chilly too.... More

Hostel martina is in a good location about 5 min walk to the arc del triomf and around 12 mins walk to plaza catalunya. It is in a block on the 1st floor which is accessible by an old lift or by the stairs. It is an old building with a catalonian style and the original ceramic floor tiles. The... More

This was a third world place. Arrived a summer afternoon with no chance to find anything else. A bare, bare room with a cheap, cheap bed. No furniture. The shower was laughable. You sat on the bed and thought of an urban gulag in the 1950. They also demanded cash in advance. There was no place to stay late that... More

My partner and I, plus another couple, booked two rooms at Hostal Martina. We were greeted by a friendly, fluent English speaking young woman, who gave us maps, pointed out places to visit etc. When we asked if there were tea or coffee making facilities we were told there were not. There is no lounge. For the entire 4 days... More

Staying in Eixample

Neighborhood Profile
Eixample
Passing through the glorious Plaça Catalunya, you enter the newer city district of Eixample, literally translated as “extension,” which immediately becomes recognizable by its more spacious streets and elegant atmosphere. The main artery of this sizable district, Passeig de Gracia, is lined with high-end international designer stores. Not to be outdone, the glitz and glamour of this zone is perhaps best exemplified by the comfortable and lavish five-star hotels that flank the divine and modernistic buildings from some of the world’s most recognized architects such as Gaudi and Montaner.
