We stayed for 3 nights - The bed was good, the staff was very friendly and helpful, the room was clean and well kept. Great value for the money. The location was good and the little restaurant across the street has good hot breakfast. There is a small market next door that has many supplies.

My fiancée, her son and me spent an absolutely fantastic few days at the Martinval Hostal this April - once we found it! The Martinval is (theoretically) very easy to get to from the airport. You leave arrivals and get on the frequent Aerobus service (approx. 10 Euro open return ticket). 20/30 mins later you get dropped off at the... More

Loved our stay- even our 6 year old enjoyed it! Right near lovely market with perfect food for breakfast and packing a lunch for the day. Excellent staff with great recommendations. Good value and great location.

We enjoyed our stay at Hostal Martinval during our two nights in Barcelona. It is in a great location, within walking distance to La Sagrada Familia and many other attractions as well as public transport and some great restaurants. The room and bathroom were decently spacious. We did not have air condition so it was a bit warm at night,... More

This was such a cute hotel! It was clean and the staff were very friendly and spoke English. They had a place for us to store our luggage before we checked in and after we checked out, so we could tour the city without it. I loved the old elevator and old charm of our room. It was in a... More

The hotel is in a cool old building with an unique lift! Room was clean and tidy and really quite spacious for European standards. We had a room with the double bed and a single. Not very sound proof but thats only an issue if you have noisy people next door! Close to Sagrada Familia and there are plenty of... More

We stayed for two nights in one of the double rooms with a shared bath on the floor one level above the reception. I was very pleased with the shared bath - very large with double sinks and a nice walk-in shower (perhaps the largest shower I have seen in Europe!). We did not have to wait to use the... More

Great location, clean, comfy bed, helpful staff and very reasonable price. Would recommend unless your looking for something fancy, then keep looking. Restaurant recommendations were very good . We would certainly stay here again

We stayed here for three days on our trip to Barcelona. We were looking for a budget friendly place that was not exactly a hostal. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. The rooms were clean and very decent for the price. Unfortunately the hostal says they have airconditioning but really it is central air that does not transmit into... More

We stayed three nights on a short trip to Barcelona with my niece - we had a double room and she had a single room. Clean, comfortable, basic accommodation - nothing fancy, no frills, but more than adequate for what we required. For my niece's room, she initially had problems with her shower head spraying everywhere, plus the drain/plughole was... More
