The room was a bit disappointing. Painted in institutional colours it could have been a room in a hospital (though they tend to be more cheerful now) or some other public service building. It was cheap though and in a good situation. The shower was effective though we were treated to water pouring through pipes nearby whenever someone above washed...

We wanted somewhere cheap but in a decent location and this place fitted the bill. It was very easy to get to as it is close to Plaça de Catalunya where the bus from the airport stops as well as the metro. It is also very close to the top of La Ramblas so you have loads of stuff close...

Anyone who stays in a hotel like Pension 45 has absolutely no right to moan about dust, noise, rudeness or towel size! The hotel is located right next to la rambla. La rambla being the busiest, most popular street this side of spain - yes, you will get noise! The hotel is charming and clean, the reception staff are as...

Pension 45 is centrally located at Placa Catalunya, from where you're able to walk to most places in the city centre - La Rambla is literally at your doorstep. A metro station is nearby too if you need to go somewhere further away. The rooms are clean and reasonably furnished. The staff is always helpful and speaks English. Just one...

The really good things about this small pension in Barcelona were its great central location which meant you could pop back and leave things if you'd been shopping or needed a quick break. The bathrooms were spotlessly clean and the showers were really hot and flowed at full strength. The room at the front was quite noisy but we enjoyed...

Excellent location, very nice service, clean bathrooms, rooms simple but nice. The hostel is located in the center, two minutes from Las Ramblas, walking distance from all the major Barcelona attractions, I am recomending it to anyone! Great service.. the only weak element is that it's not the quietest in the world but you can still get some quality sleep...

Had to go up 1 flight of steps to hotel. Good security. Very close to La Rambla and therefore close to most attractions, Mario who runs hotel was very nice and helpful - eventually managed to get a good flow of hot water for shower after a couple of days. If you have a room at front there can be...

Thank you for all these interesting comments. Pension 45 is situated in one of the best places within Barcelona. We are next to some of the most emblematic places of the city such as Las Ramblas, Plaça Catalunya, the Cathedral, ...and ofcourse, these places are full of people engoying the city. For all these reasons and because we have read...

My friends and I booked this room because it was cheaper than hostels in Barcelona, being the New Year and everything. Normally I think hostels are MUCH cheaper, but for the 30th, 31st of December, this was the best deal we could find. Seriously: STAY IN A HOSTEL! Pension 45 was terrible. Dirty, creepy, in a bad neighborhod. Ok, the...

Staying in El Raval

Neighbourhood Profile
El Raval
Once a downtrodden corner of downtown Barcelona, this gritty area has seen a cultural resurgence boasting an excellent nightlife and one of the most multi ethnic spots in the entire city. A sense of humble authenticity protrudes from the many independent record stores, second hand shops, and student bars that seem to light up the streets day and night. The rocking epicenter, the MACBA Plaça, is a modern day forum for bohemian youth, abuzz with the sights and sounds of late-night gatherings and talented skateboarders showing off their latest tricks.
