“Cheap but poor”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 October 2011

I bboked this hostal looking for a cheap place, I did it other times in Barcelona but this time I wasn't lucky. I think this place is poor even for the cheap price you pay. Everything is minimalistic over there. The room is not particularely big, but beds are really small. We had a triple room with two double bed, but each of them was really two small for two ppl, so the two of us who slept there were definitely uncomfortable. The worst was the bathroom: the door didn't close, hehe! Plus it's really small and there ìs nothing to hang your stuff, such as towels and clothes. Walls are quite thing, you can hear your neighbors if they make noise. We had a window, but the view was on small interior pathio full of rubbish. There wifi for free, but if your room is far from the reception the signal is too weak and you have to go to the computer room. The good thing is that there is a computer you can use for free. I liked the position on Gracia, that area is fashinating for me with the Vincens House just around the corner and the Guell Park at a walking distance. To go to the center of BCN you have to catch the metro, green line, which offer very good connection with some important parts of the town such as Plaça de Catalunya, La Rambra and Plaça de Espanya.

This '2 star' pension is without doubt one of the worst places I have ever stayed in. The rooms are small, dingy-the decor is unspeakable, (cheap boudoir style) our window looked out onto a internal courtyard from which you could hear every single thing happening in any of the other rooms including flushing of toilets. The beds are crammed in, and the sheets made me itchy.
We stayed here 2 nights because it had been booked for us but it was overpriced (65 euros) and despite the fact that it's in a good location, there are many other hostels and hotels along the same road. For the same price, you could stay in a much more decent Do not go to this hostel unless you're having a seedy affair and want to book rooms by the hour!

The Pension Lesseps or Hostal Lesseps at the 239 Gran de Gracia in Barcelona is hardly a recommendable place except for maybe a one night stay when you cant find anything else.

The rooms are clean, but very noisy, and cold in the winter. No mats or rugs on the bare floors, not even in the bathroom, and just some hours of tepid heating at the end of the evening. One towel per person and no extras of any kind. The hotel neighbourhood is in for long term, noisy work.

On the other hand, they were not unkind and the hostal is well situated for visits to the Guell Park and the Gracia district.
