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!

We spent 5 nights at Fontanella and everything was perfect! It is in the very center of the city just a few minutes from Plaza Catalunya! This gives you the privilage to be on a walking distance to all of Paseo de Gracia's sightseeings and at the same time Barri Gothic is just one block away. Our room was facing... More

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.

Location is excellent, moments from the main square, shops, bars and sights. Cleanliness was excellent and the place felt very safe and secure, but was also very friendly. Whoever was on the reception desk was very accommodating and helpful! Thanks for a great stay!

Stayed here for the last night in Barcelona. The location is perfect, very close to the main shopping street, steps away from airport express, and walkable to everywhere in the old city center.

The location of this lodging could not have been better. It is an easy, secure walk to the airport express stop and to both of our scheduled tour start points, Montserrat and Figueres.

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.
