Very central, with very stylish decoration, spotless clean room and bathroom, staff very friendly and very good breakfast. The room I got is very small but I don't really care, as I'm here for just 2 nights. Thank you for making my staying in Barcelona so pleasant 😊

This hotel has a wonderful location right on Las Ramblas. The front desk people are kind and helpful and the complimentary breakfast was convenient and certainly met our needs. The room was very sparse and small with 3 twin beds.

Rooms small as advertised but ample for sleeping washing and heading back out rooms facing inwards are quieter. Although that cannot be said for other guests coming back early hours of the morning making noise and talking outside our room. Comfy beds, modern, hot shower every time and hair dryer in the room. Breakfast lovely continental buffet - toast, croissants,...

One of the best hostels I have ever been. Friendly helpful staff, speaking good English. Location cannot be beaten, in the centre of town, 10 m from Ramblas and 40 m from nearest subway station. Good breakfast, small rooms though. If there is anything to complain then it would be that it is a little noisy in the hotel. But...

My friend and I stayed at this hotel in late March. The location is ideal and you can walk out straight on to La Ramblas - you are also only a quick walk from the Gothic quarter and can easily walk to the beach. Added perks were the delicious breakfast, free wi-fi and the complimentary cave. The hotel itself was...

Just arrived back from 4 days staying in the Hostal Mare Nostrum, group of 6 adults. Really enjoyed the trip. Ideal central location on La Rambla. Hostal rooms are small but very clean, comfortable and secure. Breakfast excellent and available from 8 - 11 am. Staff extremely helpful and friendly. Would definitely stay again at Mare Nostrum.

Staying in La Rambla

Neighbourhood Profile
La Rambla
Barcelona's most famous street was once a dry riverbed. Now, La Rambla is a 1200-metre boulevard, and a major draw for visitors. During the day, La Rambla fills with pedestrians, some of which stroll past impressive human statues and artists while others take a break to people-watch while enjoying a drink at one of the many terraces. Housed here is the iconic Boqueria Market that offers one of the most varied and appetising selections of local produce and specialty meats and treats. While it’s important for tourists to keep an eye on their belongings at all times, this area is most safely explored in the daytime and is a must see for everyone who visits.
