“Very Fine Little Hotel.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 14, 2014

The Hostal Martinval , is an affordable hotel with charm and a great location. It is close to the metro and to trains headed north towards France. It is quiet enough to have a neighborhood feel while a quick walk from sights and La Rambla. The staff were very friendly and accommodating and our room had a cute terrace. I would definitely recommend this hostel to anyone visiting Barcelona.

WE stayed at Martinval for 4 nights. We arrived early and they helped us find a place to eat while we waited for the room to be cleaned. Our room had a balcony with a nice view of the neighborhood. The room was very clean, bathroom was roomy and had plenty of hot water. Not lavish but very nice, since we were only there to sleep. Very quiet, and the beds were comfortable. Metro stops are just two blocks away and we were in great position to walk to all the sites, especially Sagrada Familia Church and Casa Mila. Lots of little cafes/coffee shops close by. The staff at the desk were especially helpful when we inquired about touring sites. We will definitely stay there again.

The Hostal is in a reasonably good location and neighbourhood, and only a 8 - 10 minute walk from La Ramblas and 5 minutes to the metro. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly all speaking very good English and offering good advice on what to see, where to eat etc. Our room was simple, but clean and spacious, for the money it was good value. Just a note: If you do sleep in past 12 (because you have been out enjoying the great nightlife) your room will not get serviced.

My friend and I stayed there for 4 nights and it was very good. The stuff was polite and friendly. The room was very clean and lovely. It even had a small balcony. The bathroom was nice and comfortable. We never had any problems with hot water or something like that. Free WiFi sometimes wasn't very strong but it didn't ruin the main impresson of our visit to Mrtinval: it is very good hostel with great service.

The room is very clean, the receptionist is very friendly, but the door of the washroom was hardly to open. We stayed here for 3 nights, the second night we didn't have hot water when we came back to the hotel, but the receptionist fixed it quickly. We all loved this hotel.

We (female 45 and male 16) stayed for 43 nights on the 1st floor with small balcony facing the street. Noisy (traffic) but we were to tired so no problem. Free Wifi was sometimes weak in the room. It is simple but good. Very helpfull and friendly staff! Nice shower with good hot water. Location is very central and nearby big shopping street Paseig de Garcia and Ramblas de Catalunya and Placa de Catalunya (10 min walk) and to the metro stations. They give 10% discount for the touristic bus and if you want to see a lot of Barcelona you should do this! 3 routes in 1 day, you can get out wherever you like. Every 10 minutes there comes an other bus. Staff gave lot of good advices: metro, locations, restaurants. Best one for tapas is Cerveseria Catalana!! Very nice food and not expensive. Only you have to wait for about 30-40 minutes for a table, but worth it! Accrose the Hostal is a good simple little restaurant to have breakfast: Itaca. We had a great visit in Barcelona and a good nice stay in Hostel Martinval.
