Brilliant! Me and my girlfriend stayed for four nights and the girl who worked there was so very helpful. She told us where to go, she told us the best way to get to places and she also booked our restaurant reservations for us. The hotel was nice (nice rooms and ensuite) and well located if you want to go...

We stayed in Hostal Central Barcelona for 5 days.I love the modern style that decorated the rooms in a sytled classical building. The place is confortable and clean. Excelent location for exploring Barcelona easily. Wonderful staff. Frtiendly and kind people. If I would have to go back to visit BCN I would choose Barcelona Central Gardens. without hesitation.

We had booked a 4 night stay as our first time in Barcelona. Firstly, we didnt understand the concept of hostal and had booked this last minute, to get to the rooms u hav to take a small elevator which is an old style and doesnt take luggage. Once we had got to our rooms, it was terrible! The walls...

Only things we did not like were the breakfast and the shower. The shower curtain used in the hotel was fairly small, and because of that the whole floor of...

We stayed here for three nights arriving at midnight and leaving at 3am! The staff were lovely, really kind and helpful and the place itself was clean and tidy. It's a beautiful building handy for the metro and the main sights. It was so nice to have a little balcony on our room. Simple but clean. Would definitely stay here...

Horrible staff, they were truly awful and a very uncomfortable bed which should have been replaced years ago. The Italian male receptionist was incredibly rude all the time, he made the stay at this hostel very uncomfortable and undesirable.

We spent two nights in Barcelona. The Hostal is centrally located and you can reach many attractions by foot easily. The owner was very friendly and helpful. The price was good and the room was clean.

Staying in Eixample

Neighbourhood Profile
Passing through the glorious Plaça Catalunya, you enter the newer city district of Eixample, literally translated as “extension,” which immediately becomes recognisable by its more spacious streets and elegant atmosphere. The main artery of this sizable district, Passeig de Gracia, is lined with high-end international designer stores. Not to be outdone, the glitz and glamour of this zone is perhaps best exemplified by the comfortable and lavish five-star hotels that flank the divine and modernistic buildings from some of the world’s most recognised architects such as Gaudi and Montaner.
