“nice small hostal, very nice room and clean”
Reviewed 17 August 2013

I stay at hostal goya last week (August 2013). it was a very pleasant stay. the room was big enough for 3 of us. the room was clean as well as the bathroom. the shower was great too, strong water pressure from the shower.
As for the location, it's nicely located, city center, close to the main square Catalunya where you can find the aerobus to the airport. (it's just one block away).
very close to the big shopping mall where you can find supermarket on the basement.
If you want to go some other places like la sagrada familia or parc guel, just take a taxi, won't cost a lot.

the staff was very helpful, showed me all the must-visit places.

the only bad thing that I remembered was there are few stairs at the ground floor (on the way to the lift). it was a little bit annoying if you have some heavy luggage. Otherwise, everything just great!!

thanks hostal goya.

Helpful staff, especially with information about finding you way around Barcelona.

Within the range, the room was spacious and well kept by the staff, and the bathroom was very satisfactory.
Within easy reach of the metro and tourist and bus centres. Also close to shops, cafes and supermarket, and of course a great square. Good place to stay!

Room Tip: Try and get a room with a street view

We had a lovely stay, the accommodation was just right for our needs - we wanted to stay somewhere close to the centre so we could take advantage of everything Barcelona has to offer. We will certainly return for another stay.

I cannot speak more highly of hostal Goya. We stayed for 5 nights and the location was perfect for sight seeing. We checked in late at night and the receptionist showed us straight to our room and asked us to call back to him the next morning so he could give us a map. He was very welcoming and the room was beautiful. Very clean, lovely bathroom, very comfortable bed and life saving A/C!! The next morning a different receptionist showed us where we were on the map and gave us very thorough details on where to eat, drink and sight see. She was so helpful. For the five days we came and went from Goya and our room was immaculate each day we got back. I cannot recommend Goya enough, the only place to stay in Barcelona for us!

Stayed in hostal Goya for 2 days with my boyfriend in a double room with private bath. Considering this has the title hostal I assumed it would be like the ones I've previously stayed in before but it's a lot nicer and more private.

The room was TINY though; if you have a regular sized luggage it will not fit especially with 2 luggages open on the ground. Thankfully we both brought carry ons and it was still cramped for space.

The place is designed similar to Ikea or really simplistic styles which I liked and the bathroom was ok with a closed shower and all the necessities (ie hairdryer). Could still make the bathroom a little bigger though.

Overall, service wasn't bad, the staff gave us maps and directions to the places we needed to see. We were also able to book tours and taxi transfers with them, with no trouble.
The hostal is split into different floors sharing it with other local apartments. Our floor had a little lounge with tv, Internet, and free coffee.

I'm not sure if I would book here again now that I have a certain idea of the surroundings but this place I think may be quite competitive in terms of price compared to more expensive surrounding hotels.

A really good place to land, especially if you are looking for a central location and good value for money. The friendly hotel staff provide lots of information and recommendations. While basic, the rooms are clean and modern and there is a common area with couches, a TV, computer and tea/coffee making facilities. We had never been to Barcelona before, and staying at the Goya helped us ease into this exciting city with little effort.

I recently stayed two nights. Was booked in another B&B but they underwent renovations therefore the owner rebooked me here at Goya, I got the single room which size wise, it is very tiny and basic, but adequate and comfortable if you are not going to be in your room much. The single room came with a sink while the rooms on that floor share a common area (with a computer, some tea/coffee facilities, a tv and a couch) and a shared bathroom, which the cleanliness was appreciated. The most positive of my stay was the receptionist (pau? Forgot her name-she works nights). Upon my arrival, she showed me where we were on the map and pointed out a few attractions close-by and even made some dining recommendations. This was very handy for a newbie like me to Barcelona. Location wise its convenient as well, situated close to major road jntersections and very close to the main catalunya square (where aerobus from airport drops u) and to the famous La Rambla. I will certainly look to stay there again next time but see if they have bigger rooms.

Room Tip: Choose a room away from the common area and shared bathroom for less noise,
