I have stayed at the Hostal Barcelona Centro three times now. It is in a great location, very close to Placa Catalunya (you can walk there from the Aerobus stop.) The rooms are very basic, but extremely clean. The best thing is the wonderful staff - Jean, Alejandro (I think) and the young woman who I don't know her name...

The location is very central, excellent and close to many attractions. One can easily reach by foot Casa Batllo, La Rambla, Plaza Catalunya and nearby attractions. The rooms are clean with a mini-fridge, A/C and an en suite bathroom. It is basic but good. I recommend it as a budget hotel. The downside to this hotel is that since it...

we've stayed here for our Barcelona trip - and the place is good, very helpful staff, good location.It might be tricky in summertime, as the street is noisy all the day and closing a window means necessity to use AC.

The best part of this well located and moderately priced hostal (which seems to differ from a hotel in that it occupies a single floor of a commercial building) is unquestionably the staff. Alejandro, Cécile, y Jean are warm, welcoming, and helpful hosts who manage this small hostal. Only Jean is fluent in English (and French) but with the slightest...

The so-called "hostal" is more of a small hotel. Once you navigate the entrance, you'll find yourself in a modern, well-sized room. Very comfortable, quiet and well situated in Barcelona. The staff were also very nice on arrival.

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.

“Our room 502 was on the side of the hotel that had some noisy late night patrons. This was in part because we kept our windows open at night at the air conditioning seemed to shut down after midnight. Yes it was surprisingly very warm the first part of Nov with temps around 24 during the day.”
