My friend and I stayed here for 3 nights and enjoyed it. We arrived at Barcelona airport and took the A1 bus to the city centre. We had to carry all our heavy luggage from Plaça de Catalunya to Pension Mari-Luz and then up the 3 flights of stairs due to no elevator. It was quite a tiring stretch walking...

Thank you very much for your feedback! We know the stairs are our biggest handicap and the spaces are reduced, that's why we set competitive prices. Thank you for letting us know about the shower head, we didn't realized it. We'll fix it right away. Hope you'll come back soon!

I have just returned from a 3 night stay on Barcelona and I cannot recommend Pension Mariluz enough. It is basic in terms of accommodation but Barcelona is the type of city where you will be out and about all day anyway. The staff were super friendly and helpful - going the extra mile. Everything was so clean and tidy....

First of all, as many people have mentioned there are a lot of stairs and that's the first thing you're gonna notice about your stay here. That said, we were fully aware of this before booking. We went with our baby and a pushchair and the stairs did become a chore, especially when the lights turn off after a few...

Dear Brad, Thank you for your comments. As we explained you, you can leave the baby stroller downstairs so you don't have to bring it up and down everytime. However, we are not responsible for any items left outside the hostel premises (which are just the flat 2º1ª), that's why we recommend to bring up the strollers at night and...

The location of this place is great! We were walking distance to La Rambla and so many great food and shopping locations. The metro was also so close it made getting around the city easy breezy. There were a lot of stairs to climb and no elevator, so at the end of a long day of walking, it wasn't my...

Dear Krista, Thank you so much for leaving your feedback! We're really glad that you enjoyed your stay with us. It's true that the first room (next to the reception) isn't specially quiet because of the front door but you shouldn't have any disturbance from the receptionist. We'll talk with the night staff right away to solve this problem. Thanks...

(Stayed with 3 friends) My only negative is: on the first night, I found my bedding wasn't clean. But this was quickly resolved by the receptionist who immediately provided me with new bedding and covers. I'm glad the negative is out of the way because other than this, I have to say our stay here was excellent. The staff were...

Dear guest, Thank you so much for your feedback! Sometimes, even if we wash the sheets with hot water and first quality products, some hard stains won't go off. We check this when making the beds but unfortunately that day we missed the sheet in your bed. We're deeply sorry about it! We're glad that you enjoyed your stay and...

We stayed in one of the private rooms in this hotel/hostel. The room was everything that we needed. It's smaller than you're use to (if you're from Canada/USA) but your stuff fits well.

Dear Baltzer, That was probably the most detailed comment I've ever seen. This kind of comments help us A LOT!

It's an old part of town, so expect to walk up a LOT of stairs with your bags, and don't expect sound proofing. However, the staff was very friendly and helpful; the location was wonderful for sightseeing, accessible by transit, and close to the port. The price is a huge selling point, and our room was perfectly charming. We only...

Thank you so much for your feedback! We know that the building has limitations but we like to think that the value of a historical building compensates them. Of course, the stairs are not suitable for all targets but as long as your're in good shape, we'd be really happy to welcome you. Please, come back whenever you want!

Dear Catherine, Thanks a lot for your feedback! We also provide earplugs from the reception (just asking for them) cause we know that sometimes, if you have a light sleep, noise can be a trouble in this kind of ancient buildings with a lot of echo. Sorry about that and hope the rest of your experience was positive! See you...

Neighbourhood Profile
Barrio Gotico (Barri Gotic)
