GREAT location - RIGHT off The Ramblas. Small room with twin beds, but certainly adequate. Clean, free wi-fi, free breakfast, elevator, helpful front desk. What more could one ask for a very reasonably priced room for Barcelona. Confused by the Hostal designation in the name. Guess some of the rooms are set up with 3 or 4 twin beds that... More

This was a clean quiet little hostal just off la Ramblas. Great location. Good breakfast. Typical small european room, but very nicely updated. Front desk staff very friendly and helpful. Good value for money. Just across from Liceu metro station.

What a great place to stay! The staff were all friendly, helpful and wonderful. The woman who checked us in was the best, and remembered us and had our key waiting when we returned to our room each evening. Talk about service!

This hotel is wonderfully situated half way down Las Ramblas. We were going to the opera at the Liceu Theatre and were only 30 seconds away from the entrance to this. Staff were very helpful and sent a wealth of information beforehand including advice on getting from the airport. We took the Aerobus as suggested- very straightforward, easy to find,... More

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

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.
