|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 doors are open 24 hours a day so you are 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 de Catalunya is less than a 10 minute walk up Las Ramblas.
