Great location, room adequate but poorly ventilated and despite what the ad on Booking.com implies, no air conditioning - some rooms apparemtly have it, but not the single with shared bathroom.

Well where do I start! This place was utterly appalling; from the terrible service to the lack of amenities, the whole experience left me angry and disgusted. As a hotel manager myself, I was shocked at the way we were treated as customers. Myself and my friends had been camping the nights previous to arriving in Barcelona and were very...

Up a shadowy staircase, past a door that says 'criminologie', the heart was beating. Was this the right place? But was it was as the 'Pension' sign appeared on a heavy brown painted door. The owner, a lovely girl, welcomed us and showed the room, which was colourful, clean and with a balcony overlooking the street, high enough on the...

Neighbourhood Profile
Barrio Gotico (Barri Gotic)
With its iconic, old-Europe streets and alleys, this picturesque neighbourhood is the very heart of Barcelona. It blends historic artifacts from its days under Roman dominion up through the Spanish Civil War with a vibrant modern-day culture of artisan shops and authentic culinary experiences. Avid explorers will be thrilled to discover quaint terraces and plazas brought to life by the many small bars and local musicians lasting late into the night. Fashionistas will be drawn to Portal de L’Angel, which is lined with well-known brand names and smaller boutique stands.
