This is a great base for exploring Barcelona, located in Plaza Riel and looks out onto La Rambla. I stayed here in April 2009 and have just got back from my second visit to this particular hotel. If you are expecting 'luxury' then this place is not for you, however if you're after an adequate base for exploring the sights... More

I've been very happy with my stay at the Villanueva, Barcelona. The people at the reception have been very kind and helpfull, the room was fine and clean and so was the shared bathroom. The location at Placa Reial is the best! I will be back :)

Marisa at the reception is jolly... More
