Loved Hostal Fontanella! Great location, great folks, clean and cute room. Would definitely return. I traveled on my own and not only felt safe, but protected because there was someone at the desk 24/7, who would only buzz up the customers, not random people. I felt great there.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Hostal Fontanella and feel the tremendous staff impacted our positive experience. Both women welcomed us warmly and assisted us in anyway possible. There are only 11 units in the Hostal, so the attention seemed individualized. We loved the homey feel and decor of the Hostal and enjoyed our private room, balcony, and sink with... More

I came here on holiday after finishing exams. The hotel is great with brilliant room service. The receptionist called maite ( I think that's how you spell it ) was great. She was kind and welcoming and we all enjoyed having conversations with her as we leave and enter the hotel. 10/10 for the hotel and especially maite

An older property. The Hostel is located on the 2nd floor. Room was very clean and tidy. Staff at reception were welcoming and spoke excellent English. Very good value for money. Only a short walk to the harbour, the cathedral and shops.

Great stay here, room was clean and well kept - they even service your room during the day. Hostal was quiet and reception ladies were extremely helpful. Location was very central and easy to walk to most places, I would recommend hiring a bike to see the whole city though.

Neighborhood Profile
Barrio Gotico (Barri Gotic)

Avid explorers will be thrilled to discover quaint terraces and plazas brought to life by the many small bars and local musicians lasting late into the night.
