Barcelona City Urquinaona is our most charming place. Called before 'Residencia San Salvador', is a typical superb flat in a beautiful building of the begining of the XXth century, in the centre of Barcelona: a perfect place for independent travellers that look for a central but peacefully location. Is very recommendable for the travellers that come from Girona airport (Ryanair), as the bus station is just two streets away.
The City Urquinaona will allow you to live in a privileged location from which you will be able to make pleasant strolls to the most interesting places of Barcelona: Arc del Troimf and Ciutadella park, the gothic quarter, the Sagrada Familia, the monumental and shopping area of the Passeig de Gracia and Rambla de Catalunya, the Ramblas and Catalunya square... That is a hostel to feel Barcelona under your feet!
However, if you come for work or you don´t have enough time, you have to know that you are well-communicated: three 'metro' (underground) lines one step away, that bring you easily to all the city (direct line to 'Fira de Barcelona'). we are also two streets away from the train station 'Arc del Triomf' and from the bus station 'Estació del Nord', arrival station of the buses that come from Girona´s airport (Ryanair).
Take a coffe in our terrace and enjoy one of the most peaceful streets of the city centre. A simple and clean place to stay, thinked to relax after a day of visits or work.

in the morning and didnÃ¢ t come back until the early hours so it was of little consequence to use that there were no special facilities or that the room was so basic. 2009-05-07 - igougo.com

While it was all spotlessly clean it was a little shabby. 2009-05-07 - igougo.com
There was no staff member around when it came to checking out, we merely left the keys on the sideboard in the hallway. 2009-05-07 - igougo.com
The bathroom was spotless and the water was hot; the only snag was that there were no pegs on which to hang towels and clothing while using the shower. 2009-05-07 - igougo.com
On first glance our room did look like the minimalist, almost boutique style hotel we had seen pictured on the website. 2009-05-07 - igougo.com
