I stayed 3 nights in this pension. The last night when I had to leave fo take my bus to the airport I found out my DVD player has been stolen from the room. The staff was informed we had to leave at 3 in the morning so we hadn't got the time to go to the police! Besides this... More

On arrival we were treated by a lovely lady who explained that the window in the room we had booked (although there was no choice when booking this) didn't have a view at all. She advised for an extra €40 we could get a room at the front with a view of the square. She said she would show us... More

Pension Villanueva is everything you need for a simple stay in a fantastic location in Barcelona. Looking out onto a beautiful grande plaza with fountain and restaurants and then behind the hotel the famous La Rambla. The rooms are a decent size, heating works well, are clean with fresh linens. The small group of staff are extremely friendly and personable... More

I had been in Barcelona for a meeting and decided to extend my stay to see the sights, so I booked this accommodation as I was keeping to a budget. Baring in mind that I was moving from a business hotel, to a cheap and cheerful pension, my expectations were not high. Pension Villanueva was as I expected, very basic,... More

The service was very poor, I found long hair in my bed also when new linen were provided, the linen and furniture were very old, dirty and stinky (maybe the covers are not cleaned for several years). There were not carpets in the bathroom, there were not enough pillows, the shower systematically was flooded everytime I took a shower. There... More

We chose the double room with private bathroom. The room doesn't have much sunlight in and the cleaning engine on the Plaza Reial keeps running so gets quite noisy. However if we stayed in the superior double room with balcony then the drunk people on the plaza might get noisy too. Our room was relatively quiet. The only thing we... More

this was our fourth stay in Barcelona and we almost changed hotels last minute after reading such awful reviews on here. So glad we didn't. Found the pension right on the wonderful Plaza Reial. We were told on checking in that our balcony would overlook La Rambla instead as it had more sun, which was fantastic, sitting on the balcony... 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.
