Lonely Planet review
A 2nd-floor, family-run hostal, the Girona is a basic but clean and friendly spot. The atmosphere is Catalan and somewhat frozen in time but is good value. Rooms range from poky singles with communal bathroom to airy doubles with balcony (beware of traffic noise in summer, when you’ll have to keep the windows open).
Our independent authors have visited Hostal Girona and selected this as one of our recommended guesthouses in Barcelona.

Description provided by property
Hostal Girona was designed by Idelfons Cerd in the 1860's at the hearth of the Eixample of Barcelona.
This building is located in a very priviledge area, as it is Girona Street, that belongs to the Quadrat d'Or. Its location is delimited by Aribau street and Paseo de Gracia in one side and Las Rondas and Avenida Diagonal on the other. Its recognition as a bourgeois neighbourhood coincided with the appearing of Barcelona's modernism.
There are three spaces, two of which have been refurbished and rooms made ensuite; it is worth spending an extra few euros on these .
Hostal Girona combines the spirit of this age with the facilities of a small and modern hotel which ambient denotes familiarity and comfort.
We hope that your visit to us!!
