We arrived very early in the morning after leaving a cruise ship. Absolutely no problem storing luggage and the front desk person was very helpful, even at 7:30 am. We had two very clean and spacious rooms. I expected some noise from La Rambla activity, but we hardly heard anything. Lots of things within walking distance, from sights to restaurants. very good value for the money.

My husband and I stayed at Mare Nostrum for one night. The room was very small but modern and clean, and the location could not have been better. The "rainfall" shower was out of this world, much better than what we have found in four-star hotels!! The breakfast buffet was a nice plus and was served in a spacious room with large windows overlooking the Ramblas. Definitely recommended!

In spite of fact that this is really not a hotel but a hostel, I think it lives up to the standards of a 2 star hotel at the price. We where 4 persons, 2 adults and two kids (10 and 13) in a quad room with private bath. PERFECT location on the Rambla! Quite with the windows closed (air con worked!). 2 negative comments: Wifi was non-existing in the room and the breakfast was a joke. Still a small issue for us since we could use the wifi from the restaurant below us and you can get good breakfast anyway in the area!

We stayed in a triple room with 3 single beds as we had our 9-year-old with us. From the photo on the website we didn't know whether we would get a double and one single, or 3 singles. It was a small but quite adequate room with tiny wetroom ensuite but lots of hot water and a good shower. Beds were very comfortable. There were quite a few families staying here and we would recommend it if you are travelling with children, mainly because the location is so central and very handy for popping in during the day to freshen up or rest, if you are in the city, especially useful if you have younger children. Service was excellent and friendly, our room was kept very clean and breakfasts were good, with views from the breakfast room over the Ramblas. Although it can be a bit noisy with people coming and going during the evening, we didn't have any problems once we were asleep. All in all good value for money and we would stay here again.

The location is great, very easy access to most touristic places and shops and restaurants and underground. Our room had a balcony facing to La Rambla, but the window was good enough to keep all noise out. However thr room was too tiny and it was very strange that bathroom and toilet d,dn't have wall to seperate, just glass and if you go with a friend, could be a privacy problem. Breakfast was very weak. Stuffs at the reception were friendly and helpful.

perfect location on Ramblas, with little balcony overlooking.. Very short walk to both port & Plaza Catalunya. Central market less than 2 blocks. Street noisy, as expected for Ramblas, but windows blocked all noise, when closed, making for easy sleeping. Beds comfortable. AC worked fine. Staff very helpful and very adequate English. Breakfast plentiful- yogurt, ham ,cheese, toast,cereal,fruit, juice, packaged pastries.

The hostal is located in the barri gothic near all the interesting places to visit (Ramblas, metro Liceu, Catalunya place, port vell...). The staff is multilingual (english, french) and there is a free internet access on a computer available for the guests. This is definitely a very good place to stay for visiting Barcelona !

This hostal is in a perfect location right on The Ramblas and opposite a Metro station. The room was very small but I had a balcony and even though in a very busy area it was quiet at night. It had free internet access and breakfast was included. The staff spoke good English and for the price it was good value.

The linoleum floor was dirty. The room was too small to turn around in, the "bathroom" was a toilet in a telephone-stall sized space partitioned off. We left after the first night and found a lovely hotel close by for a mere 20 Euros more. I thought I understood the difference between a hostal and a hotel, but Mare Nostrum doesn't meet even minimum standards.

Horrible experiencia, hay 25 peldaños antes de llegar al ascensor.El valor cancelado fue superior en 30 euros mas en dos noches que estuvimos, en relación al pactado por internet.El baño de la pieza era un cubículo sanitario ya que la ducha estaba entre medio del wc y minilavamanos, escurriendo el agua al piso.Televisor malo y no lo arreglaron.Tuvimos que irnos encontrando un hotel 3 estrellas por un valor muy inferior también en las ramblas.Es un hostal de mala calidad,con precio de hotel.Además exigen pagar al ingreso.

E' una sistemazione che abbiamo trovato fantastica. Si tratta di un hostal, ma è molto ben curato, la colazione è inclusa nel prezzo e piuttosto varia. Si trova praticamente sulla rambla centrale, quindi nel cuore di Barcellona, ma nonostante questo dalla nostra camera, al 4° piano con ascensore, non si sentiva per niente il rumore della strada (sempre piena di gente ad ogni ora del giorno e della notte). Un pò meno silenziate le camere, i muri sono abbastanza sottili e si sentono chiaramente i rumori provenienti dalle camere attigue. Nonostante ciò non siamo mai state disturbate nelle ore notturne e abbiamo dormito benissimo. La fermata della metro è a pochi metri. Il personale è stato tutto molto gentile e disponibile. Tutto considerato, riteniamo proprio che sia la sistemazione ideale per chi vuole trascorrere un week-end o qualche giorno a Barcellona, tenuto conto anche dell'ottimo prezzo e dell'ottima collocazione nella città. La nostra camera era un pò piccola, non sappiamo se ve ne siano di più grandi. Se dovessimo tornare a Barcellona pernotteremo sicuramente qui ancora.

2 nights with kids (12,14). Excellent location, metro, restaurant a few steps. Balcon to 'Las Ramblas', fun to sit there watching the crowd. Easy to have a walk and get home even in the night. Be careful though to walk in the wrong direction in the hotel's street, the change might surprise you in a few minutes. Excellent place if you go for the city, not the hotel. Would stay there again.
