I spent a couple of nights at Hostal Goya during my recent trip to Barcelona. The hotel is centrally located, just round the corner from a metro station and about 1km (10 – 15 min walk) from the Plaça de Catalunya, the drop-off and pick-up point of the airport busses. From the outside, Hostal Goya looks like an old apartment... More

We were a little leery of this hotel that our traveling companions selected since it seemed a little more like a hostel than a hotel. But, it was a pleasant surprise. It was the most affordable hotel we stayed in for the entire month we were in Europe. Its location is convenient to subways and buses, and there are enough... More

Perfect central location, easy walk to sights, shops & restaurants. The room (&bathroom) was clean & bright with comfortable beds & plenty of stotage. The only downside was that we overlooked the road which was very noisy particularly on the Saturday night.

My partner and I spent a lovely week in Barcelona thanks to this exquisite, inexpensive and very hospitable hotel as our "base". The owners and staff are absolutely charming and helpful, the rooms are comfortable and cleaned every day (beds made, showers cleaned, etc.). Despite the location in the centre of the city we slept extremely well at nights throughout... More

The location of the hostel is perfect, easy access to everywhere, say, La Rambla, Museums, Shopping area, metro station. There is a starbucks coffee and another local fast food chain down the building. Reception is very friendly, and helpful, She gave us all... More

Having stayed here a few years ago and enjoyed the experience, so we decided to stay again. Wrong choice. We were put in an extremely dark room, with one window into the main centre air duct which we could not leave open. Not ok if you like a bit of natural light, or like to have an open window at...

Located near Plaza Catalunya, the hostal Goya was a perfect stay for someone looking at cozy and clean hotel at inexpensive price. The room is spacious, although there is no tv and fridge but you can use the facilities in the lobby. And the staffs are super helpful. The room is new and clean. Wifi is strong.

Stayed for four nights in July 2014. Very friendly and efficient booking and check in (the doorway isn't easy to find on the street though - see photo). The room was clean and quite spacious for the price in Barcelona - we paid a little more to have small sitting area. The front desk staff were always very helpful with... More

Excellent location, small but clean, nice rooms. It is a cluster of small rooms with a central eating area with a TV, sitting area, and computer shared in our case between about 6 rooms. The entrance from the street is off putting and after getting buzzed in by reception (which is manned 24x7), you have go up a flight of... 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.
