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!

... talked. Ryan and Weston all made some French friends. It was good train ride! We found a taxi and headed to the Generator! Check in was a little difficult, but we figured it out! Our room is an 8 person private room again, just a little more cozy! Everyone was very hungry so we walked down the street to a little hole in the wall place and got empanadas! "Best food we have eaten so far," states Brooke! It's 2:15am now so we are off to bed! ...

There was one boy who is half Brazilian half Italian he was 13 months he was ok but Alfred bashed him on the head with a rattle so not sure how well that's going to work out. Not everyone was there though this week so fingers crossed there are some more his age next week. All in all we had a good day, it ...

Day #3: We went to the beach and did absolutely nothing else but eating food and beaching on day #3
DAY #4: I got up with Tom and Tyler pretty early and we went to Guel park which was pretty cool. We took the metro there and had to walk up probably the biggest hill ever t get into the park. We took ...
... Mar where one can, indeed rent a car in Barcelona cheaper than from the airport, I found the office closed. At least I was able to book a reservation online and get the important costs from the brochure posted at the desk for the super insurance to ascertain that the cheapest rental car would be picking up at this hotel rather than at the airport. So we will do that. The airport has some additional taxes to pay that the hotel does not require.

7am, up and go! On the advice from Dave, be at Sagrada Familia at 9am. I walked there... As I had time.... It took an hour. There was a queue ... The morning sessions were sold out, I had to buy a ticket for 2pm. So my advice is, book it online if you plan to go. It was worth it. Thank you ...
