I am a Flight Attendant from Canada and see many, many, MANY hotels in my job. My friend and I traveled to Barcelona in August and wanted to stay in a place that captured a spanish style inn. This place went above and beyond expectations! I would not describe this as a hostal - but a friendly, cozy spanish inn!...

We had a 5 night stay in the hotel, and all the staff made us feel very welcome throughout our stay. We arrived early but our room was ready on arrival. A little on the small side, but perfectly big enough for the 3 of us and our needs. The room was spotlessly clean and so too was the bathroom...

The hostel is in a good position, few meters from the Tetuan metro station and 10-15 minutes walking time from Placa de Catalunya but it could be a much better choice if they change something. First of all I was asked to pay 10% more cause of the IVA, ok, it was written on the Hostelworld website (from which I...

I stayed at the Barcelona Center Inn for 3 nights in August 2012. We had a triple room, with AC (very important!), clean bathroom, and a great balcony. The staff were very welcoming, and really added to our stay. The location is good, only a short walk from the old town area and the metro. Free WiFi and maps. I...

Clean, comfortable rooms, excellent location, easy to find, free coffee/tea, almost all day, free wifi and a shared desktop computer in case you need one - but my favorite part was the staff. All of the staff members we met were extremely pleasant and helpful all around the clock. We were leaving Barcelona only later in the evening, so they...

The Barcelona Center Inn is a GREAT Hotel. The staff was extremely helpful in everything we needed. The cleaning staff did a lovely job tiding up the room everyday! I will definitely stay here the next time i come to Barcelona! It is very conveniently located to everything, including the metro, the Rambla, the Gothic district, and the sea front!...

Really liked the hotel and its location! The staff was friendly and ready to help! When we came they gave us the free map and even circled where we need or can go! The room was not very big, but with the balcony, very clean. We were surprised that they were cleaning the room and changing the towels every day!

The Hostel was in an excellent location but was a little bit difficult to find at first because we were not looking up at the first floor of buildings when we were searching for it. For a hostel the decor was nice and not very run down. The room was very clean and tidy and a reasonable size for 3...

The room we had was in the annexe building across the road. The room was very small with 2 poor quality single beds, but they were clean. The small en-suite was small but had everything you need. Our room had been fitted with additional double glazing to sound proof from the road side, which was very effective, but there was...

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.
