Room with 4 beds was small and cramped, but clean. Hotel staff were polite and accommodating. Hotel was chosen for convenience to metro for early morning departure. Convenient location but not a room to spend time in. Just for sleeping.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
really well located, in the heart of La Rambla. great for a few nights. if you carry heavy luggage, bare in mind you need to take a flight of stairs until you get to the reception, other than that it's fine.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Excellent Location !!!!!!"
The room was clean and is right along the busy street of La Rambla where the action is.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great location, awful breakfast!"
Small but clean rooms. bad breakfast!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Knappt något svängrum på rummet. Trångt i hela hotellet. Annars fräscht och bra läge.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Wir waren 4 Mädels in einem Zimmer. Allegmein nicht empfehlenswert mit 4 Mädels in einem Hotelzimmer (Duschen etc. geht zu lange). Das Zimmer war klein aber nicht dramatisch. Frühstück war gut, es gab Käse, Fleisch, Toast, Croissante u.vm. Unsere Zimmer wurden jedentag gesäubert. Immer super sauber gewesen. Das Bad ist in sehr gutem Zustand. Balkon […] eher Klein aber mit Sicht auf die Ramblas. Zusammenfassend ist das Hotel aufjedenfall empfehlenswert! Preis-Leistung TOP ! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Tolle Lage, sehr sauber!"
Der Aufenthalt war alles in allem gut. Die Lage des Hostels ist perfekt, mittem auf der La Rambla, alles wunderbar zu erreichen. Auch waren die Zimmer sehr sauber und das Personal sehr höflich und hilfsbereit. Auch das Frühstück war in Ordnung. Der einzige Kritikpunkt ist, dass wir ein so kleines Bad hatten (in der Ecke des Zimmers), dass nach dem Duschen […] alles überschwemmt war (der Duschkopf war in der Mitte, bzw. in der Ecke, links war ein kleines Waschbecken und rechts das WC) abgetrennt war das Bad nur durch eine Milchglasscheibe. D.h. wenn jemand aufs Klo muss mitten in der Nacht, ist die zweite Person danach auch hellwach. Das Bett war auch nicht sehr bequem. Man spürte die einzelnen Federn der Federkernmatratze. Aber für zwei Nächte war es ausreichend. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Dette er mitt andre opphold hos Mare Nostrum og er super fornøyd! Oppusset og renslig, kjempe hyggelige ansatte. 24timers åpen resepsjon. Vask og rene håndkler hver dag. Beliggenheten er optimal! Kjempe sentralt, undergrunn-stopp under ett minutt fra hostellet.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"kunde inte vara bättre"
Inte långt att gå från flygbussen till hotellet. Lätt att hitta.Personalen på hotellet var helt fantastiska.Väldigt hjälpfulla.Rent o snyggt. Nya handdukar var dag.Bäddade sängar var dag. Bra enkel frukost. Intressant utsikt från frukostrummet. Vi hade tur att få ett rum med liten balkong. Där kunde man se folklivet på Las Ramblas. Metro precis utanför […] hotellet. Skulle inte välja ett annat hotell om jag reser tillbaka. Rekommenderar mycket. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Hotellet har kanonläge vid La Ramblas. Bra ljudisolering på fönster. Rent o snyggt på rummet som för övrigt hade det nödvändigaste trots sin lilla storlek. Frukosten var inte det bästa men helt ok. Trevlig o serviceinriktad personal. Kan absolut boka rum där nästa gång.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"מלון קטן, מקסים ומעולה!"
מלון קטן הממוקם במיקום מנצח באמצע הלה ראמבלס. המלון משופץ יפה. זול ואיכותי. חדרים מאוד קטנים אמנם למי שמתכנן חופשה עם כל המשפחה זה לא המלון המומלץ אך אני מניח שיש להם חדרים גדולים יותר. החדר שלנו היה ממש בקומה הראשונה עם מרפסת קטנה הצופה לראמבלס. חדר אוכל המציע ארוחת בוקר נחמדה בסגנון בופה עם ויטרינה הפונה לרחוב. סה"כ מאוד מרוצה. תמורה מצויינת לכסף. […] מחיר משתלם בהחלט! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

This is more like a hotel than a hostel. We really enjoyed our 5 night stay - the hostel is clean, tidy, staff are friendly and it's so central you can walk everywhere. Yes, the rooms are small but it has everything you need. Who comes to Barcelona to spend all their time in a hotel room? We were in room 403 and had a balcony overlooking La Rambla which was great for people watching at night! La Rambla is very noisy but with the doors shut and air conditioning on we couldn't hear a thing and slept soundly. The staff at Mare Nostrum were very helpful and provided us with a map on arrival. They also printed out several tickets for us for free and with no hesitation. Breakfast was also good - a simple continental breakfast with lots of choice. A really good value place to stay. I'll stay again if (when!) I return to Barcelona.
"fantastic service but not wheelchair accessible"

Arrived at 11:30 PM and found there were 60 stairs before the lobby and lift. Very kind manager found me a room at Hotel Curious which is a sister hotel......What could have been a great problem for me was so quickly solved.....So while the amenities for this hotel needs to be changed know that their service and location are fabulous.
"A great place to stay in Barcelona"
06/26/14 HannaHs48800 Kotka, Finland
I think that never again I have to spend time investigating the Barcelona hotel offer as I have now found the perfect place to stay! The location is absolutely excellent, the rooms are tiny but modern and spotless (great shower!), friendly staff, Wi-Fi worked well, breakfast is basic but adequate - all in all excellent value for money.

Hotel Mare Nostrum was the best hostel we stayed in on our trip in Italy and Spain. It's rooms are a good size and have been recently updated. The location is perfect and the staff is wonderful. They helped us if we had any type of question. Our baggage was lost coming from Florence to Barcelona and they did everything they could to keep us updated and comfortable. I highly recommend you stay at the Mare Nostrum!
"Central position with super friendly, helpful staff"
06/12/14 Parx2012 Bulgaria (English)
Halfway down Las Ramblas this hotel is perfectly positioned for investigating the whole city with the Metro outside the door and buses/taxis passing all day. The staff are faultless, so knowledgeable and helpful they couldn't do enough for us. I asked for a room with a balcony as we were celebrating hubby's 65th birthday, and we got one..overlooking Las Ramblas. We enjoyed a glass of wine most evenings when we returned from one of the many restaurants surrounding the hotel!! The hotel is a 10 minute walk from the beach/marina where there are shops and restaurants too. Breakfast is continental but adequate. We would definitely stay here again if we re-visited Barcelona!

The mare nostrum is a perfect place to stay in Barcelona. Spotless clean rooms, clean towels, good shower and a balcony overlooking the ramblas, what more could you want? A leisurely 10 minute walk to either the Port Olympic or Placa da Catunya and a metro stop right outside the hostal means you can really explore the city with ease and explore it you must! We couldn't fit in everything we wanted to do in 4 days so were going to have to come back! When we do, we'll stay here again without a doubt. Highlight of our trip was the Boqeria Market, 5 minutes walk away. Lastly, staff were great, really helpful and also we didn't see any of the crime on the ramblas that is often spoken about (pickpockets) there are loads of police patrols which makes it feel really safe. Have fun!!
"Nicely located boutique hotel"
05/27/14 O A Seattle, Washington
First of all, this is not a hostel or at least it has normal hotel rooms as you would expect albeit in European hotel sizes (i.e. smaller than US standards). It didn't bother us though as we were just 2 and didn't need anything else than a be, a shower space and some place to put our clothes. It is conveniently located on La Ramblas which is the heart of Barcelona. It is also very close Barri Gotic which surrounds Barcino, the roman city center. It is extremely close to Metro line so you can go anywhere you like with Barcelona's nice metro system. Wi-fi speed was fast and signal strength was good. Breakfast was good as well. It wasn't too fancy but better than most of the European continental breakfasts I've ever had. Check-in/out process was fast. I have couple complaints as well though. Hotel's first floor is at the second floor of the building and there is no elevator to that floor so you have to climb up stairs with your luggages. Not a huge problem but an inconvenience if you have large luggages (we didn't have any). Also showers are too crammed up and its doors don't close properly so little puddle occurs after each shower. This is not a big problem either as you can wipe out the floor with feet towel still a bit hazardous situation. Finally some rooms overlook to the inner space inside the apartment so effectively they don't have any window which is a bit claustrophobic. On the other hand I'm not sure if I would prefer the ones that overlook to the street as they may get noise from the lively La Ramblas.
"location was amazing ."

"Great location w/ a balcony view!"
05/08/14 JBone614 Columbus, Ohio
We had a great stay at Hostal Mare Nostrum! The location was amazing! And we had a great balcony view of Las Ramblas. We drove into the city and they had a special parking garage we could get discounted parking at. It was about a mile away, but it did save us some money. The rest of the trip we walked or used public transit since there was a metro station very close by, which was convenient.
"Lovely hotel, brilliant location."

Me and a friend had an excellent stay here for two nights. Our room looked right into Las Ramblas and the room was clean and comfortable. Breakfast was also good and great for the price. Would stay here again. Staff were very friendly and helpful, we were given maps and all the information we needed.
