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. The... More

The Ramblas area of Barcelona is basically almost 24 hour noisy. So, first up, most choices in this area aren't going to guarantee an uninterrupted night for a light sleeper. Pension Alamar is a clean, secure hostel- style place that would suit friends and couples of the Rough Guide variety. You aren't going to want to sit around inside your... More

Just got back from Barcelona staying here. We paid €41 a night for a double room with a shared bathroom. After spending hours trawling through various websites for a cheap room, I stumbled upon Pension Alamar. The only way to book is to email them (as they don't have an online payment system), and from the outset Roger, the general... More

I am so pleased I stayed at Pension Alamar. The location in the Gothic Quarter was central to everything I needed. The rooms are very simple but impeccibly clean. The lady of the house works tirelessly all day to keep every part of the pension in order- you can tell the owners take a lot of pride in this place.... More

A nice & clean small room in the middle of Barcelona... Cheap, nice, confortable and very clean... I would definately come back for my next visit to Barcelona.. I would not recomand this place in the summer due to very hot and not A/C in the room... but perfect for the other seasons

Very clean and great location. Because of traffic location is a bit noisy but still tolerable. Old couple who are on receptcion in pension are always there, but don't speak english so that can be a problem if you need some basic informaton. Kitchen is really well equipped. Bathroom is renewed and very clean. Mostly satisfied.

Europe is getting way too expensive for my tastes but it can still be done on a budget but nowhere near as cheaply as in days gone by...the Euro is hurting everyone. Pension Alamar combines the cheapest rooms in the best location for those seeking something centrally located. It is in the Gothic area, near to La Rambla, metro, the... More

I've given it 5 stars, I could nitpick and grumble about this and that but............. I only paid 25 Euros per night 3 minutes walk from Las Ramblas! The communications were excellent, Roger replied quickly and accurately to my emails. I took the metro to Dressanes, walked 2 minutes north, turned right down Carrer Escudellers and 3 minutes later you... More

Small hostel in the middle of the Old Town. It was very very very clean (cleaning lady was very serious about it) Wear your earplugs to sleep at night, the street is very busy. The owners didn't speak English, but who cares! Had the time of my life! Beds are a little small though, so I advise to get 2... More

It was an individual room with a shared bathroom, and the rate was 25€/night, and it didn’t include breakfast, because they didn’t provide this service (but there is a kitchen which you are free to use). The reservation is made by email, and you have to pay the full amount of your stay when you do the check in. After... More
