We stayed at pension dali for 2 nights as part of a hen weekend. Was certainly not expecting much from a 2* hostel but was still disappointed. Will admit that sheets and towels were clean and good location. Room was small and cramped, floor in bathroom had a hole in the bottom which filled with water and overflowed, hairs in bath and dirty sink. Could not see anything from window due to thick green
meshing which made the room extremely dull. Friends had credit cards stolen from their room and we were informed from reception that the only other person with a key was the cleaner. Reception worn and tatty. Would not stay again.

Was really surprised when we were checking into this hotel as the price was reasonable considering you were 5 seconds from the Ramblars and we actually thought it was going to be horrible but alas, thankfully we were wrong.
The hotel receptionist was an English bloke and very helpful. The room was a good size as there was 3 of us and very clean and tidy. The room had a fan in the ceiling to keep the room cool and the shower pressure in the bathroom was great.
We thought it would be really noisy as you are so close to the main street but the only noise was from our neighbours knocking at the wrong door during the night.

All in all great location and good hotel for what you pay for. We did 6 weeks of travelling and got much worse for alot more money. Recommended.

  • Liked — Central locality, it was great and there were so many places to go and see, was one of the only places we walked everywhere.
  • Disliked — There are stairs to get to the reception then a lift from there, but with really heavy bags a lift is a must :)

Stayed there for 5 hours. Hours, not days. The room (for 4, supposed to be the best one they had, because it had its own bathroom...) was quite small and dirty. The air was unbreathable, the noise was disturbing, there were no outlets on the walls. I wonder how it got its two stars. There was a promiscous atmosphere at the hotel that made me think I don't want to leave anything in the room...
And on top of all that, when we left the guy at the desk tried to ask for more money...

IMHO this is a place to avoid... Barcelona has a good metro network, so you don't have to bee in the center in order to have fun ;)

  • Liked — Hated everything except for the location...
  • Disliked — It is a dirty place...

my boyfriend had booked this hotel and i read the reviews on here and i thought, oh no!!! but when we got there it was in a really really good location, clean and just what i wanted out of a hotel room in the city centre!
the thing i was most concerned about before going was the clenleness and i have to say that i could not fault it! i would definatly advise geting a room with its own bathroom!!
i would definatly go again!!

i stopped in pension dali on the 26th march 2007 for 3 nights, the reason for the visit was england v andorra football, and i also took the girlfriend, before we left we looked on this website and were both extremely worried about the hotel after reading some shockin reviews. Everybody is entitled to their opinion, of course, but for the price this hotel is the business. The location is absolutely fantastic and the staff were very helpful, the room was cleaned dailly, and we never felt let down by any aspect of the hotel. we booked early enough to get a fabulous room on the street with a balcony and a bathroom and it couldnt of been better for the price and location. i got woke up once by a bit of noise but that soon passed. barcelona is a fantastic city and is always buzzing, if i am to return i will definitely consider pension dali and my advise for you readers, is dont avoid after reading these bad reviews.

I and my bf have just returned from a week in Barcelona. We decided to stay at Pension Dali, mostly because of the price and the location of course. We didn't expect much from the hotel and that's why we didn't get disappointed.
We arrived 2 hours too early in hope to at least be able to leave the bags, but at our surprise we were given the key to the room immediately.
The room was pretty nice and the beds were comfortable. Actually the most important to me was the cleanness and although the hotel needed a renovation the room itself was clean and the sheets as well as the towels smelled good.
I haven't noticed any insects or anything disgusting, whatsoever, and that made me very happy!
One thing worth mentioning was the staff that was really friendly and helpful. We had a few nice conversations with them, especially with an Argentininian guy.
Anyways, I think I would recommend this hotel to ppl who are not very picky and travel to enjoy the environment and not the hotels.
I think I could come back here...
