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 there initially for 15 minutes but this paid off as the location was lovely in the heart of Barrio Gótico. This was close to La Rambla and other great attractions in the city.
We were greeted by friendly staff who spoke good English. He gave us a map and suggested things to see and do in Barcelona. There were also useful flyers and brochures readily available for tourists to take.
We had a twin bedroom which was neat and tidy. It was a basic bedroom but it met all our needs. It had a little balcony just big enough for one person to look out into and enjoy the view below. The room also had a tiny sink which was useful too.
We had to use communal showers and toilets which were regularly cleaned. They looked modern and seemed recently renovated. The only downside was the shower head was broken in the main bathroom and didn't spray water out properly.
Overall, we enjoyed our stay in Pension Mari-Luz.
