|Main entrance to Hotel Benidorm|
The Hotel Benidorm Barcelona is in fact classed as a Hostal which is equivelent to a guest house. See our page on the differences between a hotel, hostal and pension. However for some reason many site visitors refer to it as Hotel Benidorm so for the purposes of this article I will call it hotel Benidorm!
It is a clean and basic hostal on Barcelona's most famous street - Las Ramblas Perfect for back-packers and those travelling on a budget.
The Hotel Benidorm Barcelona charges €2.00 to store your luggage. The doors are open 24 hours a day so you care free to come and go as you like and enjoy the fact that Barcelona never sleeps. There is a simple seating area in the lobby as well as a coffee/ water machine.
Hotel Benidorm doesn't have any business facilities.
The hotel has 45 rooms of varying sizes and capacities. The rooms have been recently renovated and come with a bathroom, TV, telephone, and heating. The hostal also provides towels.
Drassanes is the nearest metro stop which is 2 minutes away. Next to the hotel Benidorm is a pizza restaurant though being on Las Ramblas means that you have every sort of food at your finger tips. However if you rather buy your own food there is a Spar and several mini-markets just round the corner of Nou de Las Ramblas. Easy Internet café is a few blocks down from the hostal, next to a club called Fellini. I'm afraid you will have to get used to the noise staying at such a central hostal. For a cash machine cross Las Ramblas, and next door to it is a pharmacy. Plaça Catalunya is less than a 10 minute walk up Las Ramblas.
If you don't speak Spanish and you are unfamiliar with Barcelona booking a private airport transfer is a good option to consider. Once booked, you will have someone waiting to meet you at Barcelona airport to take you to your hotel. They will be holding a sign with your name on it. You need to book this service online before you leave by following the links below.
Via Taxi A taxi from the airport should take about 25 minutes and cost around €25.00 - €30.00 .
Via Train The RENFE train leaves the airport every half an hour and will take you to Passeig de Gràcia station, in about 25 minutes and costs €3.80 for a single ticket. You then have to take the green line metro from Passeig de Gràcia to Drassanes station and the Hostal is 3 minutes walk from the metro stop.
Via Bus The Aerobus will also take you from the Airport to Plaça de Catalunya and costs €5.90 . The journey time is around 30 minutes. From Catalunya you need to catch the Green line metro to Drassanes and the hostal is only 3 minutes walk from the metro stop.
The hotel Benidorm offer good accommodation, with en-suite bathrooms and a very central location. Remember this property is infact classes as a Hostal and is good for travellers, but being on the Ramblas not good for those wanting an early night!
