Perfect for young people, traveling alone or with friends, the rooms are small but everything is perfectly clean, very friendly hosts, located in the gothic center which is great to walk around, night and day, not too far from Barceloneta, but can be very noisy at night if you are thinking of having a good night sleep. Also tends to... More

There are some problems, initially when you get there the front of the building does not look very inviting and I had a room without a bathroom and the shared bathroom is right by the main reception area, but the place is very very clean, brilliant location for everything, the room I had was very bright and cosy and the...

I was initially a little worried about staying in a pension but decided to take a chance when I saw the great price and location of this particular property. The gamble paid off and I had a lovely stay at the Pension. The rooms are small and contain a bed, sink and little balcony but if like me you just... More

Very clean, in a fantastic location, staff are very friendly; couldn't have asked any more for the price. A really charming place that, unfortunately, probably will not exist in the future. Just take earplugs as street can be a bit noisy at times. Would definitely stay again.

I have visit this B&B or Hostel many times over the years. Why? Because they offer a great product. I personally have managed a Hostel for over 2 years and my white glove is clean. I love how Roger operates his business and i will return over and over again. To address some comments about noise. Noise is a problem,... More

A bit of noisy because of bar in the ground floor but I guess it's not,about Barcelona in general.Barcelona is never sleeping, so you'll never sleep to ;) Rooms are pretty cosy, but basic: sink, beds and a liitle table witha chairs. Very nice hosts with poor English but still ok. Heating in winter is from 10 p.m. till the... More

I had read some of the reviews prior to booking my stay at Pension Alamar and was drawn to the described simplicity of the pension - not to mention the price (92 euro for 4 evenings) and the central location. It is exactly as described, very basic but clean rooms (approximately 10) with a bed (I had a single room... More

Stayed July 2014. Excellent location in the Gothic quarter and Las Ramblas runs nearby. Rooms where clean and quiet, so you can get some good night sleep. We payed 42 EUR per night, since it was high season. Kitchen is available.

I felt a bit as if I stepped back in time staying at the Pension Alamar. The location, cleanliness, and price are phenomenal. It's just important to understand just how simple and old-fashioned the pension is.....I felt a bit as if I was back in college and staying in a basic dorm room with bathrooms way down the hall.

Staying in Barrio Gotico (Barri Gotic)

Neighborhood Profile
Barrio Gotico (Barri Gotic)
With its iconic, old-Europe streets and alleys, this picturesque neighborhood is the very heart of Barcelona. It blends historic artifacts from its days under Roman dominion up through the Spanish Civil War with a vibrant modern-day culture of artisan shops and authentic culinary experiences. Avid explorers will be thrilled to discover quaint terraces and plazas brought to life by the many small bars and local musicians lasting late into the night. Fashionistas will be drawn to Portal de L’Angel, which is lined with well-known brand names and smaller boutique stands.
