    I stayed there last autumn. It is in the heart of the old quarter, the market is very close, also a lot of restaurants and bars around. Helpful owners and nice room. I also liked that the owners cooked a very nice paella for us.

    Also Known As
    Arthostal Hotel Barcelona
    ArtHostal Barcelona, Catalonia
    El Born / La Ribera
    The labyrinth that is El Born becomes most apparent
    the moment you turn down one of its side streets. But
    this is one of the few labyrinths you might actually
    enjoy losing your way in. After all, there are few
    places that live and breathe such exciting energy
    regardless of the time of day. This neighbourhood
    seamlessly transcends the old and new parts of the
    city, reflected in its vast array of restaurants
