I did not expect more from one of the cheapest pensions in Barcelona. Picked it for its excellent location, at the heart of Gracia, not far from Casa Milá and Sagrada Familia, well connected with a nearby subway station and many buses that pass by. The pension in itself was very old, placed on the third floor with a narrow... More

The location, cleanness, service and people was really good. Although the period that I was there has been summer, the fan was enough to help us with the hot weather. The toilets were so clean although they were shared by all the guests. The only problem in this property are the stairs for people with locomotion problems is not a... More

If you have mobility issues or claustrophobia this is NOT the place for you! The webpage says the hotel is on the second floor, but that is not entirely true. The second floor in Spanish is what English-speakers call the third floor, and there is an extra flight of stairs up to the ground floor. So, you're really on the... More

I arrived at Pension Norma completely coated in sweat (!) having hauled my suitcase up what seemed like 5 flights of stairs. A nice girl who spoke English greeted me on reception and showed me to my room, right next to reception, with no window. This was the initial shock as the room (although very clean and apparently with good... More

The room was very basic, but clean. There was a single bed, wash basin and wardrobe. There was a fan high up for when it was warmer.There was a chair, but it was not a comfy chair. I shared a bathroom and toilet. I was also right next to the reception desk and there was a window through to the... More

Pension is situated in the quarter García near the metro station Fontana. Good reach to city center and beach. The rooms are not big but is good. Pension is clear. There are ventilator but is a little hot and you can hear your neighbour. But for young couple perfect.

We really enjoyed our stay here. It has a nice location just a couple of blocks away from the metro. Its in a great shopping area with lots of restaurants. Our second day we found a super market a block away and a produce stand a few feet away. But this is no television, which was ok with me. There... More

Location is probably the only thing about this hotel worth mentioning. The rooms are small, and can get quite hot and stuffy during the summer. No elevator at all, so expect an uncomfortable walk up many flights of quickly-turning stairs. Staff are friendly, and the convenient location is close to the main street and is walkable to the rest of... More

My girlfriend and I just spent a week at Pension Norma. You really do get a lot for your money, Clean, comfortable rooms in a great location. If you're feeling energetic then large parts of the city are within walking distance (including many of the big tourist attractions ) If not, then the Metro station is only a few minutes... More

Staying in Gracia

Neighborhood Profile
Gracia literally stands out from the pack. It used to be an independent town until late into the 19th century. Though it’s just a short commute away from the center, a visit here feels like you’re in a whole different city. The bohemian vibe has drawn many international artists to this area, resulting in a wide selection of galleries, live music and artsy boutique stores. The nightlife is centered around the vibrant Gracia’s plaças, where young and old gather to enjoy a drink outside. Carrer de Verdi, its main street, offers affordable restaurants and a movie theater that screens new as well as classic films in their original language. However Gracia's greatest treasure lies just up the hill at Guell Park, where Antoni Gaudi's vibrant and revolutionary art sculptures stand atop unequaled views of Barcelona.
