I visited with a friend Barcelona for a couple of days. For a place to stay we were looking for a low cost accommodation close to some of the key spots (Placa Catalunya, Ramblas, Barrio Gotico) - Pension Luis is just that.
The Hotel is situated 3-4 walking minutes from the Ramblas in a small street. The actual Pension Luis is in one of the upper floors, not so easily found.
The rooms are really, really basic - no frills whatsoever (not really large bed, small storage place for clothes, simple towels and sheets - that's basically it).
It's overall very clean - except the shower curtain that really needs some changing. The price is absolutely in line with what Pension Luis has to offer, so you get what you pay for.
A real highlight, however, is the owner. Luis is a very friendly, relaxed guy who was absolutely great in making us welcome and was helpful all along the way (pre-arrival organisation, check out time, luggage storage etc.). Luis makes the difference between just a very cheap place to stay and a good home base for a fun trip to Barcelona.
So if you are looking for an affordable place to stay to then focus on (and have more money fo) all the great things to do in this amazing city, check out Pension Luis.
