The Hostal is in a fantastic location, in the middle of where the life is, near Passeig the Gracia, Placa De Catalunya, 5 minutes walk from Rambla. Perfect. The hostal itself is a hidden gem. Rooms are very well decorated, with antique stuff, you can see the attention to every detail. It is above all the standards you can think about, it is not the normal usual hotel, is much more. Like living in the past, difficult to explain, better to go there and experience. Stuff is very helpful and can speak English, is very fast in giving help and advices for food (outstanding hints) and shopping or whatever need you may have. Can only recomend the place. If I have to list some minor sides, I have to say that as I was travelling with two little daughters, especially one of 18 months, I was quite worried that could she break something at each step she was making, the corridor, the rooms, everything is stuffed with nice antique, old stuff (and fragile.....!), in addition there is not an elevator, so bringing up and down the push chair was not so effortless, by the way it is only one store and the stuff can easily help on that. Another minor detail regards the bed, I am 1,9 meter height, the bed was just right, in comparison with other hotels are a bit smaller, but all the other hotels have not for sure the charme, the appeal of Antic Espai. At the end would say wonderful place for couple, singles, friends, families but would not fully recomend for parents with small children (let's say below 2 years). Recomended. Standing Ovation. I will for sure come back in the future.
