Hostal Residencia Rembrandt
Ranked #612 of 732 Specialty Lodging in Barcelona
Reviewed August 15, 2011

We stayed in this hostel for one night with a total of 5 friends. It was one of the cheapest options in the city which was on a very central position. The rooms were very basic but that was expected for the price. We had a shared toilet and bathroom and also a shower in the middle of our room which we didn't found very useful because it delivers no privacy and it wets the room. Overall it was clean and comfortable so nothing to complain about that.

The only bad thing about the hostel was that about 6 hours after checking in the guy who checked us in knocked on our room and said that we paid with a fake 20 euro's. The fake 20 euros was a 'fake fake' which is immediately recognized as fake money as it was made very amateuristic with paper and glue. It was in no way possible that we paid with the fake 20 euros and we felt very insulted as we checked the money both when we paid it. Also we paid only with 20 euros notes so it would be very stupid to put only one fake between it. When we went 5 minutes later back to the reception, where the manager was, everything was ok and we didn't hear anything about the fake money and it seems the guy tried to scam us 20 euros.

The hostal is centrally located in a walking street. There is free wifi. Good value for the money. Note they charge extra to pay with Credit Card, have cash on hand and save 3 €

The room was small, but it had everything I needed. The bathroom was right beside the room though it wasn't in it. My room was cleaned everyday and they would change the sheets and the towels. The place was quiet even if the hotel is really close to La Rambla, which is perfect. I could go almost anywhere by walking. And, the staff was nice and calm. I would stay there again for sure!

We stayed here for 4 nights at the beginning of June. We were looking for somewhere cheap, and near La Ramblas and it was pretty much perfect for our purpose.
The owners were very friendly and welcoming, and I was surprised to find that our room had a shower and sink - we had expected to share a bathroom with other guests!
Everything was also very clean, and the location was great. Down a street off La Ramblas and about 5 minutes away from the metro.

The main complaint I'd make about the place was the noise. Not so much an issue with earplugs and shutting the windows, but the street cleaners come out at 1am and are still quite noisy! Also there is no ari con which would be an issue in the height of summer.
For a budget hotel though it was spot on

We really enjoyed our stay at the Hostal Rembrandt. A nice and friendly atmosphere, service minded staff. Our room was cleaned every day, we could borrow a hair dryer and got new fresh towels every day. The Hostel is right in the middle of the town, still in a rather quiet corner. We truly recommend Hostal Rembrandt to every Barcelona tourist!

Room Tip: The friendly atmosphere is great!

Stayed four nighst at this hostal and couldn't have asked for a better location. Facilities are basic but rooms are clean and tidy. Staff are helpful and efficient. Rooms are affected by the noise from the streets especially rubbish trucks but if you are only being there for a few days then the noise is well worth putting up with. Thanks to the staff we had a wonderful stay. From the ladies in Room #2.

Great staff, really helpful. The hostel is in possibly the best location I could imagine in the city, right at the heart of everything. It is very basic but clean. The place knows what it is. I would stay there again.
