It is a cheap place to stay in a center of Barcelona. Good location, nice personnel and clean rooms. The biggest problem is noise. First we received a room with a balcony to a street. The noise was unbearable to sleep at night. Closed windows did not help. Also, the room was so small and uncomfortable (no place to move... More

We arrived in Barcelona without any high expectations of our accommodation seeing as it was cheap and we hadn't stayed at a hostel before. However when we arrived we could not believe that this was where we had to stay, you could hear people at all hours around our room which wasn't too bad considering we weren't in our room... More

If you're young and not very tired this is the place to go. It's a cheap and VERY central hotel. The room I stood in was clean and very small (but that didn't bother me, since I was away all day). You are minutes away from Casa Batllo, La Pedrera and the Antoni Tapies Foundation. Close to metro stations Passeig... More

hostel in a good location, close to the nearby metro system and airport transfers. 10min taxi from train station. Basic rooms, sliding glass window in room which didn't lock was a problem, left us reluctant to leave anything behind in the room and safety & security is the one thing you expect. Noisy aswell

Plus - it's central, clean, staff very helpful, lots of hot water and fairly cheap. Minus.- My single room was very very very very small, only... More

To be honest I have booked this hotel sorting by price. So far it has been the cheapest single room close to Passeig de Gràcia. The hotel occupies part of a residential building with the disadvantages of a small entrance and an elevator that needs a key to function (you can ask it at the reception before carrying your luggage...

About a 10 minute walk from Placa Catalunya, good location for central attractions and just 2 blocks from Casa Batllo. Room was basic but had exactly what we needed considering we wanted to be out and about all day: comfortable enough bed, bathroom, fridge, TV (all Spanish channels), safe, balcony and air conditioning. Its also very clean and you get... 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.
