I would thoroughly recommend this hotel - it's in a great location & is very reasonably priced in comparison to the other hotels (around 25% cheaper when we travelled). There have rooms overlooking La Rambla which can be a little loud in the late evening however if you're not a really light sleeper I'd recommend trying to get one of... More

Dear guest, Many thanks for such a nice review about Hostal Mare Nostrum! As you said, most of our rooms face Las Ramblas, but all our windows have double glass, so noice is almost imperceptible. We hope to see you soon again! Best regards, Artur Artigas Hostal Mare Nostrum Manager More

Just got back from Barcelona and couldn't have been happier with Mare Nostrum. The staff was nice, there was a breakfast included with the price and the location could not be beat. It was next to the Opera house right in the middle of town. It was a little small but was perfect for the two of us for three... More

Location is fantastic with a brilliant view of Las Ramblas from the breakfast room. Great choice for breakfast. Unbelieveable value for money.

Perfect location just on the main street of Las Ramblas, the most happening place in Barcelona. It is on the main metro stop called Liceu. It is the pocket friendly hostal considering its location.

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

Staying in La Rambla

Neighborhood Profile
La Rambla
Barcelona's most famous street was once a dry riverbed. Now, La Rambla is a 1200-meter boulevard, and a major draw for visitors. During the day, La Rambla fills with pedestrians, some of which stroll past impressive human statues and artists while others take a break to people-watch while enjoying a drink at one of the many terraces. Housed here is the iconic Boqueria Market that offers one of the most varied and appetizing selections of local produce and specialty meats and treats. While it’s important for tourists to keep an eye on their belongings at all times, this area is most safely explored in the daytime and is a must see for everyone who visits.
