I traveled solo in this destination city following a transatlantic cruise and found this "hotel" (an apartment home turned hotel in a very old solid building built in the 1700's?) than more than meet my expectations. The location was fantastic and walkable to everything. Restaurants / tapas across the street as well as an excellent burger/fries restaurant. My room had... More

Stayed here 4 nights at second floor with my wife, never going back. Filthy entranceway, filthy stairs, paper-thin walls, no staff in evenings or nights. Nice neighborhood with clean and friendly bakeries, restaurants and shops close by. Extremely overpriced dump. Barcelona is a wonderful city full of fantastic people and places. So either clean this place up, cut the price... More

The hotel is very central to everything and the staff are very helpful and knowledgeable about the area. Thanks to their help we managed to get the best type of metro ticket which enabled up to see many brilliant things. The hotel is very clean, tidy and homely. Having refreshments available all the time was fantastic after a full day... More

Just got back from a fabulous 2 night stay at the Cien! Our room (no.4) was modern, perfectly clean with beautifully fresh linen and the welcoming, exceptionally attentive and helpful staff made our stay all the more enjoyable. We loved the informality of breakfast as well as the option to help ourselves to fresh coffee, juice and cookies whenever we... More

Stayed here with my girlfriend for 2 nights. Friendly welcome. Modern look - bright & airy common area with a terrace for smokers. Bedroom was fantastic. On a quite street but only around the corner from all the action. We loved our stay and would happily stay here again. Anna and Aaron.

I had only one night in Barcelona, before flying back to the US from three weeks in France and Spain. I'd visited the city before, down in the Barri Gotic not far from the waterfront. I decided to find a different location for my all too brief stay, and found the Hostal Cien, wonderfully located very near the Passeig de... More

My mother and I stayed here for 4 nights and have no complaints. The room itself wasn't very spacious but it was enough for us. They don't have much of a selection for breakfast but the DIY pancakes are fun and taste good. Location-wise, the hotel is near Passeig de Gracia and a walkable distance from La Rambla. I was...

The hotel staff were so friendly and helpful. A very cozy hostel although we expected more at the front reception and the main door. Nevertheless the room served us well. The location is also brilliant. There's a small mini market opposite to get your essentials too. And it is so close to one of the hop on hop off stops.

Cien is very cosy place for a short stay, the receptionists all speaks good English and very attentive to any of your needs. You can also get discount when purchase bus tour on the small front desk. Nice walking distance to shopping street at Passeig de Gracia.

Staying in Eixample

Neighborhood Profile
Eixample
Passing through the glorious Plaça Catalunya, you enter the newer city district of Eixample, literally translated as “extension,” which immediately becomes recognizable by its more spacious streets and elegant atmosphere. The main artery of this sizable district, Passeig de Gracia, is lined with high-end international designer stores. Not to be outdone, the glitz and glamour of this zone is perhaps best exemplified by the comfortable and lavish five-star hotels that flank the divine and modernistic buildings from some of the world’s most recognized architects such as Gaudi and Montaner.
