I gave this place a 1, mainly because of privacy. I was traveling with my adult daughter. The room they gave us had a glass cubical shower right next to the beds. Even with privacy curtain down, you could see right through it. We had to argue for a different room. The second room was just a little better with... More

I had a very nice stay at HOstal Q. I came for a short and inexpensive mother / daughter shopping weekend. The hotel is very well located, we did not have to take the bus/ metro during our trip. We could arrive at the hotel at 1am without extra fees and still be warmly welcomed by the staff. The Wi-Fi... More

Excellent Location of the hotel. 2 min walk to placa de catalunya from where you get the tourist buses as well as the aerobus to airport very frequently.

Staying in El Born / La Ribera

Neighbourhood Profile
El Born / La Ribera
The labyrinth that is El Born becomes most apparent the moment you turn down one of its side streets. But this is one of the few labyrinths you might actually enjoy losing your way in. After all, there are few places that live and breathe such exciting energy regardless of the time of day. This neighbourhood seamlessly transcends the old and new parts of the city, reflected in its vast array of restaurants ranging from fancy Michelin-star establishments to trendy fusion restaurants. Here you'll find historical and cultural attractions such as the popular Picasso Museum and the Gothic cathedral La Santa Maria del Mar, where you just might be able to catch a traditional Catalan wedding.
