This place has a lot of pluses, particularly the location. The Eixample district isn't beautiful but very noisy, but it is also in the heart of the city, so when you stay here you can explore just about everything on foot. Also, most of the hostal's staff are very nice and accomodating and the hostal is clean. Overall, you'll find... More

A functional and clean hostal in a good location for visiting Barcelona. Not the most delicious breakfast we've ever had but overall very good value. No frills but we had everything we needed and nice staff to talk to. And a fabulous balcony!

Old building with an old elevator seems nice.The area was nice and looked pretty safe even at late hours. The room was a little bit small but it was clean and had an also private bathroom. We found poor breakfast between 9.30 and 10 o'clock. But nice staff nice hospitality. We were even able to leave the luggage there on... More

Me and my girlfriend spent some days there and it was a good experience. The location is very convenient, and the breakfast was very good (great coffee). We knew another couple during breakfast time because there is a big table to breakfast and is easy to know people. Rooms are ok, really clean.

The hostal is very well situated, walking distance to everything. We were allocated a tiny room overlooking the street, which had double glazing over part of the window only. The room was spartan and the bathroom totally inadequate - so small I had to twist my legs to avoid the wall when using the loo. Next day, we asked for... More

Good location but small room with tiny bathroom. No door to bathroom and noisy mincer toilet!! Rosa was very concerned about noise reports from other reviews so was always "sshh-sshh-sshh-ing" After 4 nights she was sshh-sshh-ing me to tears. Not relaxing and we would never stay there again. Colin

Me and my boyfriend stayed at San Remo for 9 nights and were extremly pleased with the stay. The hostal is located in the middle of Barcelona and it's walking distance to pretty much everything. The rooms are small and cosy, we had a room with balcony. The doors to the balcony are thick and you don't here much noise... More

Hostal San Remo is a small basic pensione located on edge of the Old City and about 5 minutes walk away from La Rambla. The proprietor is very welcoming and amenable, and kindly stayed up late on the night that I arrived in order to let me in after my flight was delayed. My scrupulously clean room had its own...

It's a really nice and cosy hotel. I even can't say "hostel", it's just too tiny, too clean and the owner (Rosa, we love you!) is too caring and attentive to her guests. And it's situated right in the centre, so you can walk almost anywhere without any problem (i can tell you, i travelled with my granny and it... More

Staying in Eixample

Neighborhood Profile
Passing through the glorious Plaça Catalunya, you enter the newer city district of Eixample, literally translated as “extension,” which immediately becomes recognizable by its more spacious streets and elegant atmosphere. The main artery of this sizable district, Passeig de Gracia, is lined with high-end international designer stores. Not to be outdone, the glitz and glamour of this zone is perhaps best exemplified by the comfortable and lavish five-star hotels that flank the divine and modernistic buildings from some of the world’s most recognized architects such as Gaudi and Montaner.
