4 of 5 stars Reviewed 3 days ago NEW

small room above noisy alley. Clean, well maintained, staff very courteous and helpful. Fair breakfast, really really central to old Barcelona. Good stores and bars around, 100 metres from Los ramblas. Wifi was out of action for first two days, server replaced and then quite fast.

The hotel is in a great part of town. Lot's to see and do within walking distance. The renovations are outstanding and everything is very clean. After staying in other hotels on my trip in Europe, the air conditioning here was a huge relief! It worked great. The room was the most functional of all my rooms during my trip.... More

Stayed here 3 years ago and it was just as impressive this time around. Nice clean hotel and a great location. Staff are very friendly and the 24 hour reception is very useful! Located near one of our favourite bars/restaurants My Way, which has the best passion fruit mojitos! Great trip

This hotel has a great location, just one block from La Rambla in Barri Gotic. Room was very clean, had good air conditioning, excellent shower and the bed was great. Breakfast was continental, not exciting but does the job.

So, being advertised at 2 star, I was somewhat dubious. This hotel is everything you need for a short stay in Barcelona. Rooms: comfortable, great bathroom, clean and free wifi. Staff: very very friendly and helpful. Food: breakfast was basic, but fresh and all you need to kick start your morning. Location: literally 10sec walk to La Rambla. Check in/out... More

I really enjoyed my stay at Hotel California, very friendly at the desk, comfortable rooms and beds, the best location! Just off La Rambla and free basic breakfast, just what I needed after three nights of camping! They store luggage too. I'd go back there, but I would choose a quiet room, as it was rather loud and I was... More

A small hotel in the center of La Rambla. Excellent service, hotel clean and shiny. Beautiful and comfortable rooms, showers and toilets brilliant. A good hotel to sleep well. Breakfast is nothing - no cheese or eggs, but in Barcelona there are many places to eat well. So you should not judge the hotel Accordingly, because the dining room is... More

Quaint hotel, ideally placed for City centre, a minute from the rambles. Larger than average rooms for city centre, friendly staff, clean rooms, decent continental breakfast. Good price for above low budget accommodation. Defiantly would recommend for couples

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.
