We were given a room in an apartment which was entirely different than what was shown on photos, floors were dirty and the only toiletry provided was toilet paper. The place was extremely difficult to find, and was always dark. Room was dark and painted hot pink with red curtains with only ONE small table lamp. On the first day...

From the outside appeared ok but once inside the building a different story, No working lights on the staircase and the lift albeit very vintage and pleasing didn't operate properly therefore a hike up the darkened stairs with our cases ensued. Once we found where we needed to be we were immediately asked for money and passports from an old...

If you are planning to go to Barcelona and want an amazing location and budget, don't miss Turismo Urbano. The location is perfect near to main attractions in Barcelona also Juana the owner is a great guest!!

Wifi didn't work properly. Bathroom equipment leaked. Tile floor was very cold. Think about taking slippers. Baldachin was very dirty. It's impossible to open the window because of the noise outside. I recommend to find another hostal.

Although it is a great location and a great apartement. The people tending this place are a little strange and the way they run their business is too. I mean it's cheap, clean, but I felt unsafe from the moment I got in. They wanted to keep my passport, why? It's not like it's a real hotel, this is tended...

I'm not one to write reviews but I feel I must warn people of this so called hostel.

Turismo Urbano has a very good position, 5 minute walking to pas. de Gracia. Rooms are small but comfortable and the common restroom is very clean. Staff very very kind and she gave us a lot of advice for visiting the city. Red point: Payment only cash.

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.
