This was my second visit to Barcelona and I called Steve personally and got my rooms booked due the amazing experience I had during my last stay at Zoo rooms. I had booked this hotel for our stay the first time mainly based on the positive and amazing ratings on TripAdvisor During my second visit we landed on Steves birthday... More

I agree with every positive review about Zoo Rooms. I stayed there for 5 nights having visited Barcelona with a friend. The location is very convenient, being close to the main Gaudi sights, as well as plenty of fantastic tapas restaurants and bars. Gabriella and Steve are fantastic hosts- so helpful with recommending the best places to eat and drink.... More

This cute little hotel had everything we needed for our 6 day stay. It was a little hard to find at first, but the location is pretty central with lots of restaurants and bars around. There's a kitchen and lounge area for all the guests to use. And a huge peaceful terrace with hammocks and chairs to relax in after... More

Staying at Zoo Rooms, where Steve is the landlord, is excellent value for money. Located centrally in Barcelona Steve has several good input of where to nice restaurants, tapas bars, where to get the best brunch etc. You got to try this.

I have just spent three nights at Zoo Rooms and couldn't have asked for more. The place itself is located in the wonderful Eixample district, within walking distance from several touristic attractions and dozens of restaurants and bars. For those who prefer to explore by foot, it can't get any better than this. Our host Oris was wonderful and gave... More

We located Zoo Rooms after a short walk from the Passaig de Gracia metro station asking Carrer Mallorca. The entrance is understated to say the least, and we weren't entirely sure what to expect. However, as we 'buzzed' reception, we were greeted by Steve, who was clearly expecting us as he called me by my first name which is a... More

Situated in a non-descript building somewhere in the heart of the city, is Zoo Rooms, a great hotel with the MOST helpful manager - Oris - that we have ever seen. We checked in at 8:30am - early by any hotel standards, but Oris had a room set up for us and once we had put our bags down, she... More

For a few days in Barcelona, Zoo Rooms is an ideal choice. It's in a great location, only a 5 minute walk to the Metro, with several places to eat right outside the front door. The staff are friendly and helpful and take the time to suggest places to go and things to do, as well as suggesting places to... More

I stayed in the Zoo Rooms in January 2014 with my girlfriend and I must say that the experience was second to none. From the moment we arrived we were treated exceptionally, it was my first time in Barcelona and within 20 minutes our host had a map marked out with lots of attractions, cool bars and really nice restaurants...

Really enjoyed staying at Zoo Rooms. Steve the owner is as helpful as you could ever ask for. He gave us a city map as soon as we arrived, and marked loads of recommendations of bars/cafes/restaurants/tourist attractions. Loads of places you won't find in guide books as well. Our room (facing out onto the terrace), was clean, spacious and comfy.... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
ZOO ROOMS offers stylish and budget "chic & cheerful" accommodation to a new generation of culturally sophisticated visitors to Barcelona who want a certain level of independence mixed with top-quality service, style and comfort at an affordable price.Hotel? Hostel? - Oh?tel! Our rooms meet guidelines for hotel standards, but our prices are closer to a hostel. we are a unique boutique guesthouse, combining the quality you'd find in a fancy hotel with the personal services offered in a hostel - you can cook your own meal, mingle with other guests, chill out in the living room, drink on the terrace, and all at an affordable price.The location of our little city oasis, in the heart of the Eixample area, was carefully chosen so our guests would get a better city experience and level of comfort and relax that you just won't find staying in the old town. We are situated in a prestigious area of the city, next to the city's most hip restaurants, bars and just walking distance to the city's finest sights: There are bars and clubs just around the corner if you want to go out dancing, the best of the city's restaurants - with prices to suit all budgets - are all within easy walking distance. Gaudí's masterpieces La Pedrera and Casa Battló are also just a few blocks away.The area is safe at night to walk around in - you will not be harrassed by beer-sellers, thieves and drunkards like in the old town.Did we mention the TERRAZA? Our privileged guests will soon discover our large sunny terrace with hammocks and tables and lounge chairs where guests can really chill out and take a break from the hum-drum of the big city. We organise weekly BBQ's in the evenings during the summer months serving a wonderful array of the best Argentinean and Galician meats, fresh fish and grilled vegetarian options. ... more   less
