The best part of this well located and moderately priced hostal (which seems to differ from a hotel in that it occupies a single floor of a commercial building) is unquestionably the staff. Alejandro, Cécile, y Jean are warm, welcoming, and helpful hosts who manage this small hostal. Only Jean is fluent in English (and French) but with the slightest... More

The so-called "hostal" is more of a small hotel. Once you navigate the entrance, you'll find yourself in a modern, well-sized room. Very comfortable, quiet and well situated in Barcelona. The staff were also very nice on arrival.

The hostal is in a fantastic location, the passeig de gracia metro stop is about a 2 min walk from the hotel, you are in the heart of stores, restaurants and many attractions. . Its more like a hotel than a hostal, its really clean, ac in the rooms, great host and nice rooms.

The location of the hotel is great. Walking distance to almost everything must-visit. Very close to 2-3 metro station. Very friendly staff. The neighboorhood is quiet and the rooms too. Totally recommended! The only thing that i did not like was the quality of the bed. The matress was very low quality.

This place is more like a hotel than a hostel! The staff were extremely friendly and welcoming and the room was immaculate. A cleaner would come in daily and replace towels and make the bed, something which we never expected but was lovely.

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.
