There are a lot of stairs (4 floors to the reception) and you can feel the subway pass underneath. Not a place if you are claustrophobic as there are no windows in the room. Only one plug makes it difficult to charge a phone and a camera. Their website is in English and they have signs in English, but none...

I booked a single room for 3 nights (£88). If you are not to proud to use shared bathroom facilities and just need a crash pad then this is perfect, great value, clean and accessible 24/7. It's also away from the hustle and bustle of central BCN. Rooms are basic but you do get fresh towels and linen each day....

I did not expect more from one of the cheapest pensions in Barcelona. Picked it for its excellent location, at the heart of Gracia, not far from Casa Milá and Sagrada Familia, well connected with a nearby subway station and many buses that pass by. The pension in itself was very old, placed on the third floor with a narrow...

The location, cleanness, service and people was really good. Although the period that I was there has been summer, the fan was enough to help us with the hot weather. The toilets were so clean although they were shared by all the guests. The only problem in this property are the stairs for people with locomotion problems is not a...

If you have mobility issues or claustrophobia this is NOT the place for you! The webpage says the hotel is on the second floor, but that is not entirely true. The second floor in Spanish is what English-speakers call the third floor, and there is an extra flight of stairs up to the ground floor. So, you're really on the...

I arrived at Pension Norma completely coated in sweat (!) having hauled my suitcase up what seemed like 5 flights of stairs. A nice girl who spoke English greeted me on reception and showed me to my room, right next to reception, with no window. This was the initial shock as the room (although very clean and apparently with good...

The room was very basic, but clean. There was a single bed, wash basin and wardrobe. There was a fan high up for when it was warmer.There was a chair, but it was not a comfy chair. I shared a bathroom and toilet. I was also right next to the reception desk and there was a window through to the...

Staying in Gracia

Neighbourhood Profile
Gracia literally stands out from the pack. It used to be an independent town until late into the 19th century. Though it’s just a short commute away from the centre, a visit here feels like you’re in a whole different city. The bohemian vibe has drawn many international artists to this area, resulting in a wide selection of galleries, live music and artsy boutique stores. The nightlife is centered around the vibrant Gracia’s plaças, where young and old gather to enjoy a drink outside. Carrer de Verdi, its main street, offers affordable restaurants and a movie theatre that screens new as well as classic films in their original language. However Gracia's greatest treasure lies just up the hill at Guell Park, where Antoni Gaudi's vibrant and revolutionary art sculptures stand atop unequaled views of Barcelona.

“209 is the room next to reception. It is a pension, not a hotel. It is just a place to lay your head between sightseeing excursions.”

“Some room have window overlooking a street, some have just rooms overlooking a narrow corridor in old-style houses so or you want to have a lot of sunshine or noise coming from the street traffic.”
