Basic Room for 2 (11) but clean and fit for purpose - namely somewhere to sleep and shower. Ideally placed for Gothic Quarter and El Born - both have great buildings, bars, tapas venues. 20 mins walk to beach if you want to go there. 15 minutes walk from Placa Catalunya for the airport bus. 25 mins walk for Sagrida...

A simple Pension with basic furnishings. Very clean & safe. Great location- a 2 minute walk from The Cathedral & Gothic area. Jaume 1 Metro station is just across the road, and behind that the Born area with interesting shops, chuches and squares. Our room was at the front of the building with a small balcony overlooking the busy Via... More

Elmer and his wife may not speak a great deal of English, but they run a very tidy hostel in an amazing location. Jaume 1 metro is a minute away, the road opposite leads to the Born area and the Ramblas are accessible within 5 minutes. You can walk, get a bus or one-stop metro journey to the Barceloneta beach...

The central location on Via Laeitana was ideal - next to metro station, near La Rambla, the beach and Plaza Catalunya. The rooms were simple but comfortable room, one with a view over Via Laeitana, although there was a bit of street noise in the this one. Good wifi, friendly welcome and helpful staff (particularly when we got separated while... More

The hotel is located in the heart of the old city center, close to the main attractions of Barrio Gotico and Raval. The room was very clean. Unfortunately, the staff members do not speak english. The metro stop Jaume I is just outside the hotel. Thanks to this, every attraction of the city can be reached easily.
