Historical Traveler Reviews Opera Hostal Barcelona

Excellent for the price

from

Me and husband and our three children just came back from Barcelona and Hostal Opera. I found the hotel at this site, and it was grreeeaaat!

Everything that the other readers say: clean, quiet, nice and super well located, right in the middle of the Ramblas. They don't provide a cribb, so our two year-old son slept on a sleeping bag on the floor.

The room is spacious and the air conditioner and the shower work very well, so no problem even with all these children. We paid 85 euros per night and were absolutely pleased -- outside, the heat was 40 degrees.

Don't go without air conditioner.

My husband and I spent six days in Barcelona in June 2003. Having read positive reviews of the Hostal Opera on this website, we decided to stay there. We are so glad we did!

We arrived in Barcelona by train from Madrid and then took the Metro downtown. When we emerged from the Liceu Metro stop, we were thrilled to look up and see one of the Modernista buildings we had read about.

Many more were within easy walking distance.

The Hostal Opera was a very short walk from the Metro stop (perhaps 30 metres) down a lane called Carrer Sant Pau. We couldn't believe how close it was to La Rambla--the heart of Barcelona's tourist area.

The staff were helpful, the room was very clean--if spartan--and the air conditioning provided welcome relief from the heat outside. Despite our proximity to La Rambla, our room was quiet.

The Hostal Opera is university dorm-like. Our room was tiny, but we barely spent any time there, so it met our needs perfectly and was very affordable.

If you stay there, be sure to visit the Boqueria Market. We had breakfast there every day at the "Bar Boqueria."

Highly recommended

from

We decided on the Opera on the strength of the other reviews on this site, and we weren't disappointed. It's amazingly clean, easy to arrange a booking beforehand, and once you get there the staff are very helpful. The location really is perfect too, exactly halfway down the Ramblas (at the nice end of, it has to be said, a very dodgy street.)My only gripe, and it's a minor one, would be the thinness of the walls - we heard a tremendous racket whenever our neighbour had a shower (which she seemed to do at least two or three times a day). But having said that, we didn't hear any noise from outside. OK, so you could get a cheaper room than this in the city. But you'd be hard pushed to find anywhere even remotely near as good as the Opera for the same price. A big thumbs up!

A very nice hostal

from

I will come back here, because the price-quality is very good.Its very clean, a quit place, 20 m frm the ramblas, central in the city, friendly people in the hostal.

Very cheap, very clean, very central - what more could you ask for ?

from

Just came back from staying here for 2 nights. I originally found this place via this very website, so thought I would do my bit with a review. I would heartily recommend this hostal to any visitor to barcelona. It's cheap (55 euros for a double room per night), VERY clean, and the staff are charming and helpful.We had a double room which also contained a single bed and a tiny balcony which looked out onto the Carrer de Sant Pau. Very nice room, and certainly more than I expected for the price. It also had an air conditioning unit, though opening the balcony doors worked better !It's ideally located, right near the Liceu metro stop, and only a short work from all the fun and games Barcelona has to offer.You should telephone them to make a reservation. Don't worry if you don't speak Spanish - they'll have a go at whatever language you speak. Make sure you call the day before you arrive to confirm.In short - an ideal low-budget place to stay in the heart of the city.

Brilliant hostel

from

Stayed at the Opera in July 2001, very central, room was fantastic, very clean, very secure, value for money and I would recomend anyone to stay here!

Clean, Smart, Loved it!

from

Just came back from there 16/03/03 and have to say EXCELLENT value for money, friendly multilingual staff, rooms are fairly basic but very very clean, whole place has recently been refurbished so feels like new. Centrally located, an excellent deal, rooms facing street can be quite noisy...

Clean, friendly, secure - a good deal

from

Hostal Opera is a nice, clean and modern (marble entrace way, and sliding glass doors) place for tourists weary of seedy hostal in insecure places.

The staff is very accomodating (you don't even have to go to a tourist office). The rooms are plain and simple, but not expansive.

ANd you can get a private bedroom and nice bathroom for yourself for 50 euros. It also has a parking lot which is cheaper than public parking lots.

The location is great: right off Las Ramblas, and the metro system.

A great place for the $

from

I couldn't find much information about this hostel, but took a chance. Three of us stayed in one room at this and we were all very pleased with our visit. The location is wonderful! The room was very clean with tiled flooring, a private bath, and A/C. It is located on a side street off the Ramblas which made it very quiet at night and in the morning. The decor is "blah" and no bedside lamp annoying. But the staff was very kind and helpful. I would return again to be sure.

Try it, you'll like it!

from

I stayed at hostel Opera last summer (2001) and was incredibly impressed. Its location is central(10 metres from Las Ramblas) and secure. You enter the hostel through stylish glass doors passing two bay trees flanking the entrance.There is a smart security desk and the rooms are clean and spacious. The showers are powerful but most importantly, the air conditioning units keep the rooms deliciously cool-in fact, much better than a lot of the 3 star hotels we stayed in. A safe bet. Try it, you'll like it!

Barcelona and Nou Camp

Today has been a long day. Woke at 4am as the ship started to dock at Barcelona Port. We sort of dosed before getting up at 7am ready to depart at 9. After breakfast we said good bye to our Canadian friends and then it was off the boat and into the city by taxi. As expected, when we arrived out our apartment it wasn't ready which left us 4 hours before we could get in. So we grabbed a cab and went to Nou Camp, home of the Barcelona Football club. Nou Camp is one of the most ...

Yes, I am aware that I come from a city loaded with beaches, but how often can you say that you swam in the Mediterranean Sea? Saying our goodbyes to our newest acquaintance, we followed our noses toward the salty smell of the ocean its sandy beaches.

On the way to the beach, I couldn’t help but compare just how alike San Diego was to Barcelona. The geography, the weather, the language, the people, all of it. Before ...
