Carrer dels Tallers, 27 933-018-135 www.hostalgrau.com
Hosteria Grau is right off the Ramblas and within quick walking distance from the Placa Catalunya metro station. We requested and booked a double room but instead got a two bedroom apartment complete with a living room and dining area, all for about 85 Euro per night. The room and the building were clean, comfortable and incredibly charming and the staff courteous. There’s a little bar right next door and the location is convenient to banks, restaurants and bars. I wouldn’t want to stay anywhere else in Barcelona.
