Arrived in frantic Barcelona in the midst of Grand Prix fever and paid 90 euros per night for a 3 night stay. I can tell you that I was not at all impressed. Due to a flight delay we arrived after 6pm and had to collect the keys from a couple of blocks away. Not easy with 40kg of luggage.... More

I really liked our stay here but I would emphasize that its a budget hotel. Dont expect that you would get a luxurious treatment.

I'm not quite sure why Barcelona City Centre Hostal has acquired so many positive reviews as time spent there recently was not what I had expected following the glowing reviews by previous writers. The location is central and close to transport, and for Barcelona the price as discovered upon looking at numerous other hotels was reasonable, but certainly not a... More

We stayed for three nights at the Barcelona City Centre Hostal. It is in a perfect location, central to all the sights we wanted to see as well as the gay district. The staff was very helpful in providing directions and suggestions. Great accommodations, clean and everything we needed.

The Hostal is located on Balmes which is close to the hub from where you can get the metro and the hop-off, hop-on buses. Las Rambals is less than a 10-minute walk. The room we had was cosy enough and if you like to have breakfast before you set off for the day, you can get a good one at... More

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.
