On the train I noticed a girl hitting on all of the guys in my group, relentlessly throwing herself at all of them and looking like a fool. She kept going and grabbing onto their arms, whispering into their ears, and getting too close for comfort. Thinking this was the greatest ...

embarrassed of the notes they had been leaving us and spoke no English or Spanish.

We had a leisurely start to the day as it was Saturday and then went on the underground to Guell Park, which is a large park high up north of Barcelona, designed by Gaudi. It is a world heritage site. We had to walk up a hill then take 6 large external escalators up an almost vertical street to get there. We got some nice views of the ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hostal Goya Barcelona
Great affordable hotel
Decided to stay here after reading the reviews on Trip Advisor - was not disappointed. My boyfriend and I stayed in the Hotel part of Hostal Goya -Brilliant location and very clean and comfortable accommodation.
Great central location, good value for money and friendly, efficient and helpful staff. Perfect for a weekend break.
Hostal Goya - Perfect Little Gem in a Big City
I have been looking for some reasonably priced hotel in good location (i.e. near to Plaza de Catalunya, near the Metro and quiet) and I found this perfect little gem from the TripAdvisor website.
I booked through email about 3 months ago while many of the other similarly priced hotels in close proximity are already full. I was lucky to secure myself a twin room with a balcony (which turned out to be a big terrace, wow, what a bonus!), which means I can see the sunshine every morning!!
Although on the "quiet", if you can find anywhere which is really quiet in this city, side of town, it is so close to everything that I ended up walking everywhere instead of taking the metro! Plaza de Catalunya, Barri Gotics, La Ramblas and Airport Bus, Tourist Bus, theatres, Pass de Gracias etc, are all within 2-10 minutes walk from this hotel!
I stayed in the Principal Goya which is the renovated floor. My room (in fact it was room 105 as requested in my reservation, was just as it is presented in the hotel's website) was clean and simply decorated. It was big in European standard though the ensuite was on the small side with only a shower and no bath. However, I've seen the common bathroom in the hallway ~ they were big and very clean, with bath!! The only downside was that all single rooms were interior room which means they would be very dark. Therefore, though travelling alone, I had to pay more to stay in a twin room in order to get sunshine into my room!!
The common area was very cosy and comfy with free tea and coffee served all day. I've seen people sitting in the lounge at all hours of the day. You can even refill your water bottle here before you go out for the day!!
Mind you though, you might want to use the stairs (reception is on 2nd floor) instead of using its very antique elevator!!
Both the day and night receptionist spoke English and were willing to offer assistance if requested. All in all, I would stay here again when I visit Barcelona, and would recommend to anyone looking for budget accommodation in this City!
Fantastic little gem
We found this place from the tripadvisor website and all the postive reviews were right - the locatioin was unbeatable (we ended up walking everywhere from where we were), the staff friendly and the room simply but comfortably furnished (it was a bit small but they did tell us the room was going to be small). There is a very comfortable living room with free tea, coffee and hot chocolate which was a real bonus. Would highly recommend this to anybody going to Barcelona!
Great Location and big rooms
This was a wonderful place to stay. We only stayed for one night, but the location was ideal for exploring the city by foot. The only downfall was that we needed to check out early, 7am and no one was around to assist us that early. They said there would be, but none. We also needed a taxi, so we hoofed it out and found one quickly enough. All in all I would stay again.
Great place to stay - highly recommended
I came across this site and decided to use it to research accommodation in Barcelona before I went. I was looking for an inexpensive hotel fairly central that I could use as a base for my travels. I read a few reviews of this hotel and decided to book it. I'd emailed a few places but Hostal Goya were the only ones to email back. They seemed very friendly and eager to respond to all my queries.
Location: The hotel is situated near Playa de Catalunya. This is very central and within easy walking distance of the sights. I flew with Ryanair which gets into Girona airport about an hour away. The Ryanair bus drop off point is only ten minutes from the hotel and very easy to find.
Room: The room had been recently done up. It was nice and clean, airy and the bathroom was spotless. The beds were comfortable. My only criticism of the place and it's one that could be made of many hotels in the area is that the room was rather noisy but after a full days of sightseeing this didn't seem to matter too much. Being a hostal don't expect any breakfast but there are plenty of places nearby to get something to eat.
Cost: I'd spent a bit of time looking around for cheap accommodation but still wanted something secure, clean and central. The hotel didn't disappoint.
All in all I'd recommend this to anyone. If you are interested in staying here I'd advise you to get in early as it seems to be busy.
We went here for a short 4day stay at hostal goya all we can say was it was brilliant.The staff were very helpful.The room was spotless and the lounge was very relaxing to come in and have tea or coffee when you felt like it.The area was central to any place you wanted to go.Going out for a meal was great and cheap.Try Hotel Rita or ask goya manageress to tell you sister hotel as we had 3 course meal with sangeria 1litre for 2 people for 25 pounds and it was great.Last would like to thank all the staff.Without these reviews we would not have found it.Also very important buy handbook top 10 best things in Barcelonaits a great guide book.
Fabuloso Hostal Goya
We stayed at Hostal Goya for 11 nights in January on the renovated floor. It is in the perfect location, near the metro, and very easy to get to the airport. I felt very safe and comfortable there. The decor is very IKEA and the bed sheets and duvet were nice and comfortable. It is very quiet at night...no outside street noises. Because of availability we had to stay in a room without a bathroom for 6 nights and it was fine. The hall bathrooms and showers were very clean and safe.The staff speak English well and were very helpful. I had a great experience in Barcelona and at Hostal Goya.
Clean, quiet and perfect location
We stayed at Hostal Goya in late November, and would definitely recommend it. The hostal is split into two, with cheap rooms on the main second floor and a completely renovated set of rooms on the first floor, that are more expensive. We stayed in a double room on the renovated floor, which was ensuite. the website shows you these rooms, and it was almost as lovely as the pictures suggest. The classy wood flooring and spotlessness of the place made it very pleasant to stay, at a very good price. The only minor drawbacks we found were that it seems only the twin rooms let daylight in - which wasnt actually a problem being there at night mostly! However the lighting in the room could have been a little more sophisticated, to match the rest of the place. The ensuite was also very small, and only had a shower, but was very clean and the shower was powerful. Some of the twins have slightly bigger bathrooms and baths. We did use the communal bath for a nice soak one evening, which was fine. Being such a small place (9 rooms) there is very little noise from the other guests: we hardly saw anyone. The great thing though is definitely the location, it could not be better and is on a very nice street in a good safe area of town, bang in the middle of all the best streets and sights. Would also like to recommend a local restaurant - Hostal de Rita - a couple of blocks away, fantastic catalan food at LOW price (though be prepared to spend all evening there, service is veeery spanish!)
I stayed here for 5 nights recently, and was very impressed. For the low, low price, it is in a great location, in a pretty swish neighbourhood, but also close to the historical centre, metro station and waterfront. Clean, comfy and quiet rooms with shared bathrooms, and a cosy common room with tea & coffee, local tourism guides and a big TV. Highly recommended!
