“Worth the money”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 November 2013

We have stayed here several times; it is what it is - a budget/1 star hotel (do not use the Hostal part unless you really are strapped for cash). It is the location that scores being right at the top of the Ramblas and so 3 minutes walk from the Aerobus stop on Pl de Catalunya and close to all the Barri Gotic stuff. The rooms are a little tired but we've always been satisfied; we always ask for a double ensuite at the side witha balcony overlooking Calle Santa Anna (avoid the front - too noisy due to the Ramblas - but that's where the family rooms are with larger balconies on which you can sit out and eat)

We were staying in Barcelona for one night en route elsewhere. On a strict budget, we wanted somewhere central, comfortable, and cost effective. This hotel was it. It is right on las ramblas and within easy walking distance of the old port, the Gothic area , and the Plaza Catalunya (so easy for airport transfers) and slap bang in the middle of some fabulous restaurants and bars.

The room was small, and basic, but had everything we needed - a comfortable bed, a good shower, wifi and a fabulous little balcony. The staff were really helpful, and when they found out that we were staying for the first night of our honeymoon they gave us a complimentary bottle of cava in our room. Fabulous.

The hotel shares a building with another hotel, so can be a bit confusing on arrival, but check in and check out were simple, and the whole experience was great. We wanted to stay here again on our way back through Barcelona a week later, but it was fully booked. Not surprising really.

Room Tip: Rooms round the back are quieter, but you sacrifice the view.

We were really disappointed with this 'hotel' I booked the room and saw the pictures of the hotel bedrooms/balconies etc but when we got there we went to the fourth floor reception and were taken out of the hotel through narrow corridors to what i am sure was a hostel room. It was clean but tiny with no room to move at all. The bathroom was from the 50s and the shower had drips coming out because the shower head was so old and rusted up, The window looked out onto a light well and there was building going on with scaffolding from top to bottom and on monday morning drilling by workmen standing right outside our window and so loud that we couldnt even talk! I complained but was assured we were in the hotel area as we had a bathroom even though ithe corridor had a sign that said hostel!! the receptionist was very polite and helpful but we felt ripped off!! Looking around local hoels it was no cheaper than other nicer hotels just off the rambas and with much nicer rooms so dont actualy stay on the road there are many much nicer ones in the streets off. Barcelona is fantastic but as it was a birthday treat we were disappointed and didnt go back to the room much!

We booked to stay in the Hotel Toledano but on arrival we were surprised to discover that the whole thing is actually a hostel. No lobby at street level, keys required to enter 'hotel', room off the general seating area and reception, no kettle or cups- so no possibility of making tea or coffee, no hairdryer, single beds with simple foam mattresses, aircon not the strongest, bathroom door didn't shut and bathroom very basic. Having said which: The location was excellent, the staff were extremely pleasant and helpful, the room was clean and airy and overlooked La Rambla, the towels were fluffy and white and changed when we requested and the price was reasonable. In short: As a hostel it deserves 5 stars but as a hotel it is worth 2. They get one extra star for niceness!

Great lads who liked a joke with us and made the stay fun.

Relaxed check out time despite being an hour late there was no charge or anything and it was fine to leave bags there until flight.

Room had a balcony looking out over Barcelona and for the location (on la Ramblas) it was a fantastic price.

Cheap, clean and quiet. Great location on Las Ramblas. The staff is super helpful (if sort of all-business). Hotel Toledano and Hostal R. Capitol seem to be two different names but the same hotel, under the same management, in the same building. Hotel Toledano seems the nicer of the two but it won't kill you to stay in the Hostal R. Capitol, as I did my second time around. Either of these places is a great choice if you're looking for budget lodging in a great location that is very near the Gothic Quarter and all sorts of other great stuff in Barcelona.
