Mould, mould and more mould. So positives first as the list is short. The location was really good. Close to the bus drop off from the airport and only a 5 minute walk to Placa Catalunya. Tones of restaurants, shopping and attractions in the area. The staff seemed fairly knowledgable and were able to point us in the direction of...

This was my 5th trip to BCN and first time in this hostal (more like hotel!) and I was incredibly happy with it. The location is amazing and you're only 3 minutes walk away from the centre of BCN. The metro is right outside the front door and the buses are regular as well. The staff at the Hostal were...

Hostal Q is very easy to find, right next to the Urquinaona metro station. When we arrived we were greeted by Christina who was very helpful and friendly, giving us some travel tips to navigate our first time around Barcelona. The night staff however were less welcoming and didn't appear like they even wanted to be there. The rooms were...

The receptionist downstairs was very friendly, fantastic in his knowledge of the best and worst of Barcelona and also helpful. The shuttle you can get booked to take you to the airport is 35 Euros for a maximum of 4 and was quite efficient. The location is great for exploring the Gaudi monuments in Eixample and also the grand heritage...

We were booked into the apartment which is connected to Hostal Q and found it to be very good. The apartment is not attached to the main hotel, and is located about a 10 minute walk from the reception area, in the El Born district. We found the apartment with little fuss, and were very happy that there was an...

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.
