Rooms needed soundproofing, could hear noise outside the room. Floors and blankets were dirty. Bathrooms a little small and smell, showers needed upgrade from the shower curtain to screens. However the reception staff was friendly and the entry and elevator was unique.

I passed few days in this Hotel. It was not a pleasant stay. My room was very small and noisy. I had a very bad night because of the noise. The TV of the guys from the reception and the bathroom next to my room. This "hotel" is more like a flat because except the reception you don't have a...

Location is excellent. Central to the hub of Barcelona. Pokey small rooms, but clean enough. Felt safe. The manager was very professional. Grand old building, but the venue is cramped. Suitable for single or couple.

Old, dusty room, thin walls let you hear the neighbors and smell their cigarettes. Wi-Fi didn't reach to room. Much better things are available for this price. Was able to cancel remainder of reservation and go somewhere else.

Mattresses and beds full of bugs, MANY MANY FAT BUGS! The sheets had hair and pubic hairs. Towels useless without absorption capacity. The bathrooms were disgusting and stinking, the plastic curtains of the showers had and indeterminated and unknown color and WERE VERY VERY FILTHY! The "Staff" (some kind of employees) were useless (blind eye and intentional misunderstandings). This Hostal...

The hostel is very close to many monuments and sightseeing places in Barcelona. The Metro station in right in front of the door. The place is a little bit hard to find because the are no big signs in front door. Personel should speak english in order to communicate with customers. We had some skin itches during our stay there,...

Its not that bad it was clean (with a dodgy shower), and the location was excellent about 5 minutes from Placa De Catalunuya, and apart from one miserable Chinese person the staff were good, it is hard to find, and should de better advertised, as the street numbers appear to be haphazard, easiest way to locate it is to find...

Staying in Eixample

Neighbourhood Profile
Passing through the glorious Plaça Catalunya, you enter the newer city district of Eixample, literally translated as “extension,” which immediately becomes recognisable by its more spacious streets and elegant atmosphere. The main artery of this sizable district, Passeig de Gracia, is lined with high-end international designer stores. Not to be outdone, the glitz and glamour of this zone is perhaps best exemplified by the comfortable and lavish five-star hotels that flank the divine and modernistic buildings from some of the world’s most recognised architects such as Gaudi and Montaner.
