“Plain and simple”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 24, 2012

I had a single room.The room is very basic, but sufficient. Bed (good quality) cupboard, table with a chair. Clean bathroom with basin and a bath with shower. The room is fitted with floorheating. There is an elivator and downstairs there is a commonroom with teli and wifi and one computer. Also available are 3 vending machines where you can by some softwdrinks, sweets and savouries, one with bottles of water and a coffeemachine.

There is one major disadvantage, the rooms are very noise because of the tiling in the rooms, which are easy to clean and maintain. but if you take that for granted you will have for the price you pay a wonderfull place to hit the sack in the centre of Barcelona, next to La Rambla and 5-6 minutes from the harbour and place the la Catalounya.

This hotel is just off las Ramblas in the heart of tourist Barcelona. It is very near Catalanya Square where the tour buses and the airport buses stop, Walk to the Metro. A few doors away from the most wonderful market one can imagine and walking distance to the port and shopping centres.. It is also just off the Gotic area ( old Barcelona) What could be better!.
The hotel is very basic but the rooms are clean with an en suite bathroom. There is no diningroom but many cafes nearby for excellent coffee. The price is fitting to what you receive and ideal for a lower budget.

after a business trip I have chnaged hotel to a more near by hotel in the center of BCN.
This hitel was perfect value for me and in the center. Super!! The metro was to be seen from the enterance ans I can advise all. It is not a luxury hotel but very clean and good beds. That's all you need for a stay as you are gone all day..
They have lockers for your bagage when chaking out and having a late light.
Very friendly staf and I felt safe aldough woman and on my own that weekend.
I have save their contact etails and it will certainly not be the last time I am there!! :)

I really liked Opera ramblas, I stayed there two times one in the last new year eve and another one last Aug. Hotel location was very excellent just in the middle of Ramblas, Staff were helpful, room were clean but u have to ask to change the bed sheets. There is no TV in the room but really you will not need it in Barelona :)

Room Tip: You can use the WIFI inside your room if you are in the 1st floor :)

I have stayed in this hostal on several occasions. The term hostal can be misleading to English speakers. It is not a hostal, but just a simple hotel.
It is clean, safe, quiet, very centrally located and handy for the Metro (Liceu station on Linea 3, the green line)
The hostal is just off the Ramblas, adjacent to the Opera House.
If arriving at the airport, take the bus to Placa Espanya where you take the metro to Licieu station. The hostal is a 1 to 2 minute walk away.
