“very good little hotel”
Reviewed December 2, 2012

we only spent one night in this hotel but next time our stay will be only there! Very nice and clean hotel, nice people and nice white new room with a little terrace. We would stay here absolutely again. And a very good price too.

We (2 couples in their early 50's) recently stayed at the Martinval Hostal in Barcelona for 3 nights 23-26 October 2012.
We booked online back in August which was very easy.
Perfectly centrally located for a visit to Barcelona.
The hostal is basic but all that you need for a few nights : friendly staff,good bed,very clean bedroom & bathroom,quiet with no street noise & there were complementary hot drinks in the small cantine.
All in all very good value for money.

The hostal does not have a restaurant which we thought was a bonus as in BCN there are more than enough places to eat & drink morning,noon & night.Those we experienced were very good,exceptional quality & reasonably priced.
We would definately stay in the Martinval again & recommend it to anyone looking for a basic,comfortable place to stay in the fantastic city of Barcelona.

My boyfriend and I have just returned from a 4 nights stay at Hostal Martinval. It was a fantastic base for exploring the city - a 5 minute walk to the Passieg de Gracia, Casa Battlo, the metro and busy shops and restaurants. There are plenty of local shops, bars and restaurants close by - we would recommend Frida's cocktails just next door! The hotel is on the first floor of a large building and we were provided with keys for the main doors. The room that we stayed in was basic but very clean with towels changed daily and a very comfortable bed. The only difficulty that I had was that there was no mirror in the bedroom, this made it very tricky for me to dry my hair but I managed with our short stay. We would highly recommend Hostal Martinval for a fabulous city break!

Staff were super friendly, everything was clean and new. They held our bags for us before we checked in and after we checked out. Room was smallish (budget room as others were full) but more than sufficient, shower nice, bathroom functional. We would stay here again. We hope being a new property that they keep on top of maintenance and cleaning as it would be nice to come back to the same standard.
Town also close, and close to pl Gracia, Diagonal and pl Catalunya... All walking distance

It wasn't my first time to Barcelona. I always find the accommodations there over priced for what you get, but finally I discovered this great place! Excellent price! Very modern new rooms. Nicely decorated and friendly staff! They all spoke English and gave me directions and recommendations for places to go out and eat. I also got a map of the city. It's a small hostal, but it's exactly what you need for a city trip: close to main attractions- paseo de gracia is just a minute's walk away, and a comfortable bed. I will go again for sure, I got a 5 star treatment in a small cosy hostal. Gracias!

Nice hostel. New and clean. Staff is always ready to help. Close to the centre and Sagrada as well. But hopefully the district is not crowded with tourists). near are different cafes, cheep supermarket and also market with tasty jamon and fresh bakery. But it may be loud in the streets, so room with patio view is the best choice. Thanks to Anastasia )
