“It feels like home there”
Reviewed 9 April 2011

It's a really nice and cosy hotel. I even can't say "hostel", it's just too tiny, too clean and the owner (Rosa, we love you!) is too caring and attentive to her guests. And it's situated right in the centre, so you can walk almost anywhere without any problem (i can tell you, i travelled with my granny and it was no problem for her too). And did i mention Minnie? It's a little Rosa's dog (or sheep hmm) that really likes cheese :) I hope i'll come again!

I stayed with my husband at the Hostal San Remo for 7 nights during our Christmas holidays and we were very satisfied!! First of all, the location of the hostal is very central, only 5 minutes from Placa Catalunya, which is the center in Barcelona and where the aerobus (the shuttle-bus from the airport) stops. Everything worth seeing in the center of this city is in walking range and, if you want, you have easy access to any means of public transport. Also, our land-lady, Seniora Rosa, although lacks the knowledge of English, is very discreet and kind, not to mention that she keeps everything spotlessly clean!!! The hostal is very quiet, we even whispered to each other!! Our room (number 7) might have seemed a little small, but we didn't change, even though Seniora Rosa offered us to move to another room with a larger bed. Generally speaking, I would stay in this hostal again without a second thought!! Thank you, Seniora Rosa and we loved Minnie!!!

There are 8 rooms at Hostal San Remo. I think the details are ,,,,

Room NO.1-4 : Twin bed room with private bathroom and balcony (48 euro per night)

Room NO.5-7: Single room with private bathroom and without balcony (38 euro per night)

* but i am not sure about room 6 and 7.

** breakfast is not included.

and there is one super teeny room, which is called "pequena", 25 euro per night with shared bathroom. Room "pequena" is super small with a small window. It is right next to the entrance, so it might bother you if you are a light sleeper. Besides, very old elevator is just in front of the room beyond thin wall. However, the bathroom you are going to have to share is big enough and very clean. As other rooms have attached bathrooms respectively, the person you have to share the bathroom with would be the owner of San Remo only. It is really good deal, i think.

I stayed 3 types of room here, after all. If you can afford to pay a bit more, I recommend you to book double rooms, I enjoyed the balcony and the view from there. Single room is not bad, but after I spent several nights in double room, I felt that the single room was too small with limited sunshine.

The closest METRO station is Urquinaona. There are many exits. The closest exit is "Bruc". From this exit, it is only 30 seconds to get to hostal san remo.

This wasn't our first choice, but at the end we were very happy that we choose this little hostal for our budget stay in Barcelona. You have to contact the hostal directly (you can do it through their web site) but the reservation is made without any hustle. Located just 5 minutes walk from Plaza Cataluna in an old building (transformed large flat like many out there), it is in great and well connected location. Its central location allows you to go everywhere by foot (we did that) which can be a great experience of discovering some less known, but nevertheless very charming and beautiful parts of Barcelona. Not to mention all sorts of nice cafes and restaurants. We are both vegetarians and we find couple of nice places not in the guidebooks plus interest selections in some regular restaurants as well. So you can enjoy a great food in Barcelona even if you are vegetarian. The rooms in the hostal are pretty basic, but sufficient and very clean. Bathroom is very small but also very clean, and that was the most important thing for us. Our room had a charming little balcony to the street, which was nice, and luckily there were not too much noise. There is also iMac in the lobby with free internet. The hostess of the place doesn't speak much English, but is extremely friendly and helpful so the communication is easy if both parties are willing. But the biggest attraction of the hostel is the adorable little dog Minnie. She just gives the place it special charm. If you are not really too keen on animals, don't worry - she never barks too late or too early, and she won't impose - Minnie will come for inspection of your room only upon your invitation :) This place just wouldn't be the same without her presence. And for our next visit in Barcelona this hostal will be definitely be our first choice.

Excellent location just a few blocks from Catalunya plaza and easy metro access. Elevator available and although very small fit 2 people and 2 small suitcases. Hotel staff does not speak english but very helpful if you can attempt to ask in Spanish. Manager was very sympathetic and extraordinarily helpful when friend was pickpocketed and had to call to cancel all credit cards Be sure to ask about payment arrangements prior to checkout as I ended up paying cash to get the rate quoted -- if you charge to a credit card they tack on a fee. Room very spacious, comfortable beds, and window access to look over street below. Bathroom was very small and had a slight odor but very clean. Odor only in bathroom and as long as you kept door closed was not noticable in room. Bath was a step up from room level. Shower tricky to use without getting water all over the floor. Computer offered to guests to check email and such.
