Nice accomodation and the hospitality is friendly. The location is good. The breakfast is for a couple of days ok (not rich - fresh squeezed orange juice, roll, butter, jam, coffee, milk), but not longer. You get daily fresh towels, but thee rooms are not fully cleaned daily.

Perfect location, clean, value for money! My only complaint was the temperature of the rooms...so hot that I noticed most rooms left their door open all night to let in cooler air from the a/c in the hallways.

I stayed here last year as a last minute city break for my birthday. Once we found the hostel (should have used a map!) the staff were extremely helpful, the hostel was clean and my friend and I were more than impressed with the facilities.

Very good location. Very clean. Very safe. Feels like you're at home and not a hotel. But the only bad thing is the shared bathrooms. But other than that it's all good. We definitely recommend this place and would book again of we ever come back to Barcelona!

Hostal Fontanella is quite close to Placa de Catalunya where the airport bus lets out, and is quite convenient walking distance to many of the sights of Barcelona. The hotel staff were very friendly, and are there 24 hours. There is free wi-fi, although it did not work well in our room. However, for several reasons, I did not sleep... More

I booked this hostal, as I was participating in the Telecom Congress, which is really paralyzing the city for one week. I was really positively impressed. Nice welcoming, easy booking and ... excellent position in the City of Barcelona!

Absolutely perfect location as you are in the heart of the city. 3 nights (long weekend) for under £200 for 2 people is excellent value for money. It's clean, safe and the owner as well as the employers are extremely friendly and helpful.

Staying in Barrio Gotico (Barri Gotic)

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.
