I came to barcelona with my friend and my first impression of this pension was all right but after a few nights of stay we started to hate it. There were very noisy people next door and they were very dirty. They left hairs, wet towels on the ground in the bathroom witch was absolutely disgusting. And on top of... More

I stayed here just for 3 nights and got #14 room that has a big balcony viewing French railway station. The location is superb: right next to the nice park, Zoo, Gothic quarter and in 10-15 min walk to Barceloneta beach or Colomb. There is a shared bathroom that was always free so I had no troubles in using it.... More

We got a train from Barcelona airport and got off at Estacion Francia and the pension is literally across the road from the station . We arrived quite late at night , but it was no bother for the gentleman on the desk... More

We were very satisfied with our stay due to the extremely friendly and helpful staff. For example, they changed their internal schedule so that we could stay longer in our room and helped us out with commodities. The rooms are spacious, clean and the classic European architecture looks impressive. The classic construction also means that sound travels quite easily, but... More

Great location, very nice simple rooms and friendly and helpful staff. Myself and my two boys loved it.Very close to anything you might need beach, park,metro, supermarket. With the beautiful El Borne to explore just round the corner. Rooms airy and clean. We had a balcony at the front of the building and didn't find noise a problem. Would definitely... More

Fantastic value pension in a brilliant location. It was clean, very safe, quiet, and in such a lovely spot right near the Parc Ciutadella and Estacio Francia. The WiFi worked great and a bit of free toiletries were included. The lift is very small, but I didn't mind the stairs. I highly recommend Pension Ciudadela, I enjoyed my stay very... More

Simple accommodations, clean and run by nice people. It located across the street from the Estacion de Francia train station, thus very easy to get there from Sants train station or BCN airport. From the airport, take the train (it's called the R2 Nord) to the Passeig de Gracia (about 27 minutes), get off the train and from the same... More

We booked this hostel the morning before we arrived and were very pleased with the rate. Upon arrival we were greeted by a very friendly lady and were checked in in under a minute. We were dreading the sight of our room given the old state of the building but our room was beautiful and very well maintained and most... More

Staying in El Born / La Ribera

Neighborhood Profile
El Born / La Ribera
The labyrinth that is El Born becomes most apparent the moment you turn down one of its side streets. But this is one of the few labyrinths you might actually enjoy losing your way in. After all, there are few places that live and breathe such exciting energy regardless of the time of day. This neighborhood seamlessly transcends the old and new parts of the city, reflected in its vast array of restaurants ranging from fancy Michelin-star establishments to trendy fusion restaurants. Here you'll find historical and cultural attractions such as the popular Picasso Museum and the Gothic cathedral La Santa Maria del Mar, where you just might be able to catch a traditional Catalan wedding.
