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. Yes, the rooms are small but it has everything you need. Who comes to Barcelona to spend all their time in a hotel room? We were in... More

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.

I think that never again I have to spend time investigating the Barcelona hotel offer as I have now found the perfect place to stay! The location is absolutely excellent, the rooms are tiny but modern and spotless (great shower!), friendly staff, Wi-Fi worked well, breakfast is basic but adequate - all in all excellent value for money.

Halfway down Las Ramblas this hotel is perfectly positioned for investigating the whole city with the Metro outside the door and buses/taxis passing all day. The staff are faultless, so knowledgeable and helpful they couldn't do enough for us. I asked for a room with a balcony as we were celebrating hubby's 65th birthday, and we got one..overlooking Las Ramblas.... More
