After a long day in Barcelona, Hostal Elkano is a great place to have a rest and gain energy for the following day. Quiet, cosy rooms, reasonable prices and kind staff. I'd recommend it to everyone. If I go to Barcelona again no doubt I'll...More
I was thinking which rate to choose, this hostal is a little bit better than 'good' but less than 'very good'. For sure - it is a very clean place, rooms are very small without a/c, wifi is free and works very well.
Location was fine ( 2metro stops from la rambla) plenty of cafe, bars and restaurants nearby. The room was cleaned daily( fresh towels etc ) the staff were friendly but spoke lvery little english. Overall good value for money

Beyond the four columns standing guard at the Plaça Espanya, beyond even the extravagant and colourful fountains guiding your way up the boulevard, stands the impressive and towering structure of the Palau Nacional, the national museum. At this very spot in front of the cascades of the central fountain, Freddie Mercury and Montserrat Caballe gave the performance of their lifetimes to welcome the 1992 Olympic Games to
this magnificent city. And true to its anticipation, the games transformed the city, reimagining the mountain of Montjuic with the development of an arena, stadium, and many other sporting facilities that are open to visitors year-round. Surrounding the adjacent side of the plaza are well-established hotels catering to business guests and a shopping mall transformed out of a historic bullfighting arena.
