Pension 45 is situated just off the main street Las Ramblas and therefore, it is very convenient. The rooms are small and were very cold when we visited but an extra blanket was provided. It was quite noisy but this is to be expected when you are so close to the central area. The staff were polite, friendly and helpful.... More

Pension 45 is in the best location you will find in Barcelona. Had some early issues with staff being off hand/rude though to be fair the staff member did not have any English and me not having any Spanish did not help. This pension is spotless the rooms are small and basic but good value for money. The general ambience... More

My friends and I were dreaming to see Barcelona and we did get a chance of going there for 3 days. We ended at Plaza Catalunya and found Pension 45. It looks great from the outside and curiosity sake we checked it out. We saw smiley faces among the pension's staff and we felt like its good to stay here!... More

Just spend 3 nights in what can best be described as a broom closet with a shower. Some of my cotrevellers experienced cockroaches in their rooms, and the clerk was were either weird or grumpy. And we're talking 80€ per night. This is taken out of a bad movie, so surreal. They get one star for free and consistant wifi... More

The hotel is in an ideal location, 5 minutes walk from La Rambla and Placa de Catalunya. The rooms are average but comfortable and clean. Ideal base for a one or two nights stay as a group of friends. We specifically asked for 6 beds, when we arrived there were only 5, despite having asked. Although tbf the hotel staff... More

This Pension is in a great location! 5 minute walk to Place Catalunya, 3 minutes walk to La Ramblas. Other side of Las Ramblas is Gothic Quarter, so this is the best area to be in to tour Barcelona on foot or grab tours. Stores, bars, restaurants at your door. Pastry shop 2 doors down for breakfast or quick lunch.... More

The room was a bit disappointing. Painted in institutional colours it could have been a room in a hospital (though they tend to be more cheerful now) or some other public service building. It was cheap though and in a good situation. The shower was effective though we were treated to water pouring through pipes nearby whenever someone above washed... More

We wanted somewhere cheap but in a decent location and this place fitted the bill. It was very easy to get to as it is close to Plaça de Catalunya where the bus from the airport stops as well as the metro. It is also very close to the top of La Ramblas so you have loads of stuff close... More

Anyone who stays in a hotel like Pension 45 has absolutely no right to moan about dust, noise, rudeness or towel size! The hotel is located right next to la rambla. La rambla being the busiest, most popular street this side of spain - yes, you will get noise! The hotel is charming and clean, the reception staff are as... More

Pension 45 is centrally located at Placa Catalunya, from where you're able to walk to most places in the city centre - La Rambla is literally at your doorstep. A metro station is nearby too if you need to go somewhere further away. The rooms are clean and reasonably furnished. The staff is always helpful and speaks English. Just one... More
