Hostal Q is very easy to find, right next to the Urquinaona metro station. When we arrived we were greeted by Christina who was very helpful and friendly, giving us some travel tips to navigate our first time around Barcelona. The night staff however were less welcoming and didn't appear like they even wanted to be there. The rooms were... More

The receptionist downstairs was very friendly, fantastic in his knowledge of the best and worst of Barcelona and also helpful. The shuttle you can get booked to take you to the airport is 35 Euros for a maximum of 4 and was quite efficient. The location is great for exploring the Gaudi monuments in Eixample and also the grand heritage... More

We were booked into the apartment which is connected to Hostal Q and found it to be very good. The apartment is not attached to the main hotel, and is located about a 10 minute walk from the reception area, in the El Born district. We found the apartment with little fuss, and were very happy that there was an... More

The people ther were extremely helpful without having to ask them. Would go there again! It is not certainly a luxury hotel and it looks at very few parts slightly tired, otherwise... More

Great location! Walking distance to Catalunya, La Rambla, Port Vell... Staff were friendly and cheerful! Yes, the shower is part of the room, you'd feel train underground and a little noisy outside due to cars and people but we slept through it.

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.
