Hotel is centrally located, with easy access to all the tourist sites, as well as excellent restaurants and shopping. The staff is exceptionally friendly and accommodating. Breakfast on the terrace is a real treat! The rooms are small and the shower is TINY, but adequate. Great fun, and like staying at your grandmother's house! It's very secure, as well. I...

At first, it was kind of creepy because of the little dolls, but I actually loved the place! It gives a very Spanish feel and it's perfect if you want something different from a typical hotel. The lady at the reception, however, could not speak English, but was still very accommodating and helpful. She would phone the owner (I assume),...

I stayed at Hostal L'Antic Espai as part of a European solotrip. The price for the location was unbeatable. I'm not sure what exactly was happening that particular weekend - maybe it was the Barcelona v Madrid soccer game - but the prices for other hotels near Barcelona's city center were hundreds of euros per night. L'Antic Espai isn't quite...

Trip didn't start well as we had to hurry to arrive to avoid the late-arrival charge, which we failed to do. However, that was not the hostal's fault, and their policy is clearly stated, and 20 euros between two isn't so bad, even though it was only a 2-night stay. The room was really nice. Clean, spacious, rather elegant, with...

Overall, I'd recommend this to any budget traveler except those with physical disabilities (a lot of somewhat narrow stairs, no elevator) or who want a modern style facility. If I were going again, I'd pick the same place. For most travelers, the positives will far, far outweigh the negatives. Location: Excellent, walking distance to most main attractions, very near Metro...

Staying in Eixample

Neighbourhood Profile
Eixample
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.
