Unlike many of the other hostels around Europe, the rooms here are comfortable, staff is helpful, and the location is great. They also have a thumbprint scanner for access to the building. How cool is that. However, the multitude of dolls that populate the building is somewhat unnerving.

Thanks for your review, and for your nice words about our staff, actually we have the finger print system, to make the entrance easier for our clients, so they have direct entrance, and in the same time for more security, controlling with our cameras all the movements. Thanks again and we hope to see you again Regards, Muhannad More

Me and my boyfriend stayed here for 4 nights in June and it was just perfect, the owners were so friendly and helpful and the place is just lovely, such beautiful rooms and furniture.

First off -- location. As you'll read throughout Trip Advisor reviews of ppl staying in Barcelona, the days are long with lots of walking, as it should be as Barcelona is magical from Park Guell to the Barceloneta beaches, and from Montjuic and the $1 tapas on Blai in Poble Sec to the Torre Agbar which glows right up til...

Quaint, great location and super service. Very helpful in booking tours etc. in Barcelona with insider info. They (Sergio) couldn't have been more helpful with planning and recommending restaurants and tours. Breakfast on the terrace was delightful, don't decline it. A hidden gem in Barcelona.

We used Trip Advisor's review system to find a central, quiet, affordable and smaller hotel in Barcelona. L'Antic Espai proved to be perfectly located and pleasantly surprised us from the moment we entered with its Victorian furnishings and decor. Sergio met us and was very welcoming and even walked one block away with us to help carry our bags from... More

I stayed in this hostal for 2 days on a business trip to Barcelona. The hotel is very central, about 10 minutes walk from Plaza Catalunya [where the direct bus from the airport arrives and departs from.] The hostal is on the first floor of a building, so count the street numbers and keep looking up for the gold L'Antic...

This hotel was recommended to us by friends who stayed there before. They warned us ahead of time that the room they had was pretty small, but the very central location made more than up for that. We were so happy to have taken our friends' advice. We really got a taste of the city, probably ate in the best... 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.
