I was really impressed with this hotel. My first impressions was the room was incredibly small but well-designed. The room me and my partner were staying was certainly smaller than the room my parents were staying in. So my tip would be to contact the hotel to ask for a slightly larger room, as room 406 would be too small... More

Dear Guest, Thank you very much for your review! Our guests opinions are highly important for us. They make all of us improve daily. Yes, our rooms are compact but they are very comfortable for having a short stay in the city. The central location, as you said, is amazing. Lovely views over Las Ramblas from almost all the rooms.... More

Well, stayed here a few days before a conference, to chill and check out Barcelona. Mare Nustrum is in a prime location, close to La Rambla and local places of interest. The Metro is also close for rapid transportation. Staff are very friendly, and breakfast fine (with an excellent view out onto the street). Rooms are basic but serviceable, and... More

Dear Guest, What a lovely review. I can feel you had a great stay in Barcelona, and also in Hostal Mare Nostrum! Almost all our rooms face Las Ramblas. Only some of them are indoors, but that's true, 95% of our guests come to the room only at night to sleep. The rest of the time they are rambling or... More

I've traveled around Spain a lot and do like to stay on la Ramblas .... Mare Nostrum was great and I'd surely stay there again. It was tiny BUT so well designed. There was a place for everything. Breakfast was fine... The workers were exceptional... I was having a problem with my next reservation and they bent over backwards to... More

Dear Guest, I'd like to thank you so much for writing some nice lines about Hostal Mare Nostrum on TripAdvisor! It's so kind of you to dedicate some minutes of your time to us! As you said, Hostal Mare Nostrum has double glass in all our windows, so noise stays out of the room. It's so pleasant to have those... More

Nothing much to say, great location(over the la rambla street!), fine breakfast, very clean rooms, friendly personnel. A little bit expensive but worth the price i think. Would definitely suggest this place and stay here if i visit Barcelona again.

Everytime I visit Barcelona, the only place to check in is Mare Nostrum. It is a modern hostal at the heart of Barcelona, you can reach every hot spot in a few minutes. The employees are friendly 24 h and really helpful, if someone needs an information about Barcelona - loooooove it! ??

This is more like a hotel than a hostel. We really enjoyed our 5 night stay - the hostel is clean, tidy, staff are friendly and it's so central you can walk everywhere.

Arrived at 11:30 PM and found there were 60 stairs before the lobby and lift. Very kind manager found me a room at Hotel Curious which is a sister hotel......What could have been a great problem for me was so quickly solved.....So while the amenities for this hotel needs to be changed know that their service and location are fabulous.
