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. 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

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.
