|Hotel Jardi Barcelona|
The Hotel Jardi Barcelona is a basic, no-frills hotel in the centre of town, great for backpackers and those who just want a bed to sleep on and aren't fussed about facilities.
The hotel was fully booked when I went, and looks over a pretty square.
The hotel Jardi is very basic and has just a small and simple dining area where you have your continental breakfast in the morning.
The hotel Jardi has no business facilities.
The big bonus of the hotel Jardi Barcelona is its location standing over a beautiful little Plaça with a large church opposite . There are several standards of room available. The interior rooms do not face out onto the square. The standard exterior rooms have a view out onto the square and a few have a small balcony. Then there are the superior exterior rooms which look over the square and have either their own little balcony or terrace.
|Area around Hotel Jardi Barcelona|
The hotel Jardi is located in a quiet little Plaça in the middle of the Gothic quarter. La Rambla is just a 5 minute walk away though you wouldn't really know it because the area is so quiet in comparison.

There is a cash machine right opposite the hotel and a couple of good tapas restaurants just across the square.
If you need a pharmacy then head onto Las Ramblas, where you will also find La Boqueria market which is without a doubt the best place to buy your food and snacks. Also in the Plaça, just below the hotel, there is an art market every Sunday. The collection of Catalan artists who display their work every week make a great way to idle away some time.
