We stayed at this hotel for one night after landing in Barcelona on a friday. We would normally have picked something a bit nicer, but for some reason the hotels for that one night were very expensive. This hotel was very well located right off the Ramblas and right beside the Liceu subway station. The rooms were quite small, but... More

We booked a triple room as it was the last one available. The room we had was very small at about 10 square metres with 3 single beds jammed in. The bathroom was so tiny that you have to have the 2 shower doors pushed into the shower in order to use the toilet. The basin was in the main... More

Dear Kylie D, Thank you very much! Comments like yours really make us all improve in what we do. However, we would like to kindly answer to them, as we don't agree in some of the points: Well, rooms are not very big, but they are not tiny! They have just the great size to make the guest feel good.... More

The location is brilliant - right in the middle of the city. But the hotel itself is very very basic. However, while travelling as a tourist by yourself, most people don't really spend much time in the hotel itself, so it is adequate. The room was very small, and breakfast was acceptable. There was never any staff there for breakfast.... More

No problems. Nice room. Good breakfast with fresh fruit, yogurt, bread, cheese, meat (if you are a meat eater), pastries, boiled eggs, coffee, tea, juice, etc. hotel staff will keep your luggage if you check out and still want to spend the day in Barcelona. They called a cab to take us to the airport.

The location is excelent. The rooms are tiny but very clean. Situaded in the ramblas jusr outside the Metro of Liceu. The rooms are completely insoronated. Breakfast is a little poor, but the location and the cleaness rewards.

First, remember this is a HOSTEL not a Hotel & SPA. Rooms are always more tight but if your goal is rather to explore the city than to enjoy hotel SPA facilities - this is great choice.

Fifth time to visiting Barcelona. Second time staying at this hotel - and will do so again in the near future. Rooms are small, but clean. Great views of Las Ramblas. Good breakfast. Staff members are friendly. Excellent location and opposite the Liceu Metro Station. Would recommend. Excellent value for money.

Located in the centrer of Las ramblas, you don't visit it for the view, but for it's convenience. It's a walking distance from all the center attractions and there is also a metro station that can get you anywhere you like.

Staying in La Rambla

Neighborhood Profile
La Rambla
Barcelona's most famous street was once a dry riverbed. Now, La Rambla is a 1200-meter boulevard, and a major draw for visitors. During the day, La Rambla fills with pedestrians, some of which stroll past impressive human statues and artists while others take a break to people-watch while enjoying a drink at one of the many terraces. Housed here is the iconic Boqueria Market that offers one of the most varied and appetizing selections of local produce and specialty meats and treats. While it’s important for tourists to keep an eye on their belongings at all times, this area is most safely explored in the daytime and is a must see for everyone who visits.
