The Hostal is in a good location, it is very clean, lovely staff. Twin and triple rooms are available. We had air con and WiFi, rooms are en-suite with the use of a communal fridge and lounge. The room at the front didn't really suffer from external noise, but you can hear everyone in reception, so the noise level depends... More

Excellent and helpful staff. Location is also excellent and the essential places in Barcelona are in a walking distance. But surely you get get a metro which is very close. Room was small and not so quiet but we weren´t looking for luxury, but just a good place to stay.

Brilliant! Me and my girlfriend stayed for four nights and the girl who worked there was so very helpful. She told us where to go, she told us the best way to get to places and she also booked our restaurant reservations for us. The hotel was nice (nice rooms and ensuite) and well located if you want to go... More

We stayed in Hostal Central Barcelona for 5 days.I love the modern style that decorated the rooms in a sytled classical building. The place is confortable and clean. Excelent location for exploring Barcelona easily. Wonderful staff. Frtiendly and kind people. If I would have to go back to visit BCN I would choose Barcelona Central Gardens. without hesitation.

Firstly, we didnt understand the concept of hostal and had booked this last minute, to get to the rooms u hav to take a small elevator which is an old style and doesnt take luggage. Once we had got to our rooms, it was terrible! The walls... More

We stayed in Hostal Central Barcelona for 3 nights, the bed and the room were comfortable, however, there was no television. But there was excellent Wi-Fi reception in the room. Only things we did not like were the breakfast and the shower. The shower curtain used in the hotel was fairly small, and because of that the whole floor of... More

Staying in Eixample

Neighborhood Profile
Eixample
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.
