We (mother and 3 young boys, 13, 11 and 8) stayed here for 5 nights over the Easter period. We arrived later than expected due to flight delay, the manager greeted us well and processed us quickly. He spent time telling us about the area we were in and furnished us with maps and directions to important sites. Our room... More

Warm welcome, helpful staff, perfect location. This hostel exceeded my expectations regarding what is offered for such prices. The neighborhood is full of cafes, restaurants, shops, etc., and at the same time the location is perfect for walking to many sites Barcelona is famous for.

Our 5 night stay in Barcelona was made perfect by staying in this budget hotel (hostal in spanish). Great value for money, clean and the friendly staff clean your room everyday and give you fresh towels. There is heating and air con. We went in November 2014. Great time of year to go, not too cold but less tourists around.... More

On arrival the staff were very friendly and accommodating, check in went smooth and we were given a map and helpful information about how to travel around Barcelona. We stayed for 4 days in a triple room which was very clean (cleaned daily) and comfortable. Air con worked well and there is free coffee and tea in the hall way... More

The staff was nice and the rooms were clean and not too small. I would recommend this hotel as its not far away from La Rambla as well. After all, hence the name it's in the center!!!! Again, i recommend this!

I stayed at the Barcelona Center Inn with my daughter for a week - we loved our room and the decor with Spanish tiling.

Staff is very nice and helpful. The location is perfect - only 5 minutes away from Girona and Tetuan metro. We stayed in a family room of four. Very clean and definately I would recommend it to others.

We stayed at the Barcelona center inn for 3 nights. we arrived quite late at night but we were given such a warm welcome by the gentleman on reception. The room had a lot of charm with high ceilings and light fittings. The bathroom was lovely and had amazing tiles all of which added to the character of the property.... More

We stayed in a family room for four and greatly enjoyed our time here. The people at Reception immediately made us feel welcome and everyone there was always courteous and helpful. The high-ceilinged room and corridors seemed from a different age (part of the appeal, especially in Barcelona) yet were also clean and comfortable. The hotel is only ten minutes... 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.
