Hostal Mare Nostrum, Barcelona, Spain
Excellent location on La Rambla + excellent staff
A small hotel with an excellent location halfway up La Rambla opposite the Miro mosaic. Front rooms were a little noisy despite the double glazing, but that's what you must expect if you choose a hotel on La Rambla where the festivities are still in full swing at 4am! Fortunately we had a quiet room at the back of the hotel. Staff were excellent with their help and suggestions. The hotel has an excellent breakfast room that overlooks La Rambla. The perfect spot if you want to be right in the thick of all the action.

Misleading photos
The photos on the website were very misleading, the triple room was significantly smaller than advertised, the lift was obscenely small and dodgy, the breakfast was well below average, the beds weren't very comfortable and the toilets were extremely cramped. Definitely the worst hotel I've stayed at for the price I payed, absolute rip off.

Friendly staff, small room
Hostel was fantastic value for where it is positioned. The staff were lovely and very welcoming. Breakfast was included and was delicious and generous. The room was quite pokey and didn’t really have a window so felt quite claustrophobic. It was quite noisy until after midnight. Overall, really pleased with the stay.
