“Very good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed 1 week ago

We spent a weekend at Hostal Centric, and would strongly recommend it. Excellent central location, professional service, clean and comfortable room, and fast Internet connection on the plus side. The only point not quite as good was the size of the room which was relatively small. It is firmly on the list of possible hotels for our next Barcelona stay.

The hotel is very modern, centrally located and close to many of Barcelona's amenities. Lots of restaurant (and affordable ones) around, a convenience store right next to it. The staff is really nice and helpful, the rooms are rather small but very clean and comfortable. We were at the back of the hotel and it was very silent.

Reception very welcoming , rooms very clean and modern , nice sheltered terrace to sit . Lots of cafes near by , not far from La Ramblas. Would definitely stay there again. Staff extremely helpful in guiding us to where to eat, they also have kettles, travel adapters if required

Stayed here with my family for several nights. The room was pretty spacious for three people, and the staff were very helpful. The design of the hotel was pretty basic, but comfortable. The location was also quite good.

This hotel although only a 2* I think only due to there not being a restaurant, this would be worthy of 4* the rooms are modern and clean, free WiFi and ensuite with tv and not far from the Metro, there are cafes and restaurants near by so not having a restaurant in the hotel is not a problem. The price was very good too. The staff were all very helpful telling us where to go and what's best to see and to be mindful of pickpockets in La Rambla. I would stay here again and recommend it to anyone.

My friends and I stayed here for an event I organised in Barcelona. For its location in Barcelona and the quality of rooms - you get really great value for money. We had doubles, twin and triple rooms and they were all great - clean, good size & great showers. Down in the lobby there is a living room where you can relax and an area where you can make free tea. They don't do breakfast but they do offer a deal at the nearby Café Moritz which is worth visiting at least once and checking out the toilets (you will see what I mean!). The location of the hotel is good - away from the crowds of Barcelona's touristy area but close to two metro stations and you can walk to the Gothic Quarter and Las Ramblas if you don't mind a bit of a stroll (if you don't like walking more than 10 minutes - take the metro). It is also conveniently located for the airport bus (less than 10 minutes walk). Alberto and Fiona went out of their way to make our stay extra special which was really appreciated. I have no problem in recommending this hotel to others.

My only bad point for this hotel is that they use those horrible foam mattresses.
So on that basis I would not go back.
Otherwise very well run, good staff and nice and clean.
The position is ideal, near enough for most things the city has to offer yet quiet enough to relax.
