Reviewed 20 August 2016

The location is brilliant - right in the middle of the city. But the hotel itself is very very basic. However, while travelling as a tourist by yourself, most people don't really spend much time in the hotel itself, so it is adequate. The room was very small, and breakfast was acceptable. There was never any staff there for breakfast....

No problems. Nice room. Good breakfast with fresh fruit, yogurt, bread, cheese, meat (if you are a meat eater), pastries, boiled eggs, coffee, tea, juice, etc. hotel staff will keep your luggage if you check out and still want to spend the day in Barcelona. They called a cab to take us to the airport.

The location is excelent. The rooms are tiny but very clean. Situaded in the ramblas jusr outside the Metro of Liceu. The rooms are completely insoronated. Breakfast is a little poor, but the location and the cleaness rewards.

First, remember this is a HOSTEL not a Hotel & SPA. Rooms are always more tight but if your goal is rather to explore the city than to enjoy hotel SPA facilities - this is great choice. Hostel is very clean, rooms nice designed, good beds, good windows very well insulating from the noise outside, central air conditioning system working...

Fifth time to visiting Barcelona. Second time staying at this hotel - and will do so again in the near future. Rooms are small, but clean. Great views of Las Ramblas. Good breakfast. Staff members are friendly. Excellent location and opposite the Liceu Metro Station. Would recommend. Excellent value for money.

Located in the centrer of Las ramblas, you don't visit it for the view, but for it's convenience. It's a walking distance from all the center attractions and there is also a metro station that can get you anywhere you like.

We stayed in this hotel for 4 nights. The location was excellent the people in service there as well! The room though was very small but the woman in service was very kind to move us for the last 2 nights in a slightly bigger one which made a difference.

Staying in La Rambla

Neighbourhood Profile
La Rambla
Barcelona's most famous street was once a dry riverbed. Now, La Rambla is a 1200-metre boulevard, and a major draw for visitors. During the day, La Rambla fills with pedestrians, some of which stroll past impressive human statues and artists while others take a break to people-watch while enjoying a drink at one of the many terraces. Housed here is the iconic Boqueria Market that offers one of the most varied and appetising selections of local produce and specialty meats and treats. While it’s important for tourists to keep an eye on their belongings at all times, this area is most safely explored in the daytime and is a must see for everyone who visits.
