Catalunya to catch an airport express or to the Barcelona tourisme counter within 5 minutes. Staff are very friendly and helpful.

We spent a few nights in hostal Q before heading to a 4 star hotel outside barcelona (for a wedding). Hostal Q was so much better and more comfortable. The rooms are really nicely designed and decorated, and have double size walk-in showers and nice relaxing lighting. The staff are really friendly and in addition to the free wi-fi, there...

Great little hotel, very central to main bus stops and Renfe train stops. Aeroport bus goes from right outside airport terminal to 'Placa Catalonia' central bus stop which is literally 3mins walk from hotel. When you check in they do tell you about breakfast being served in kitchen each morning but just note that it's just tiny cakes in a...

The hostal is nice, clean and the rooms even if they are small they are really pretty. It s the perfect solution if you are travelling with a low budget (it costs something less than 40 euros fro a double!). A little breakfast is included. Even if a little noisy at night, it has a perfect location, you can reach...

Staying in El Born / La Ribera

Neighbourhood Profile
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 ranging from fancy Michelin-star establishments to trendy fusion restaurants. Here you'll find historical and cultural attractions such as the popular Picasso Museum and the Gothic cathedral La Santa Maria del Mar, where you just might be able to catch a traditional Catalan wedding.
