Budget hotel, nice refurb with old Barcelona charmPosted Dec 2, 2013
Pros: Good price, good rooms, good staff, clean, central location.
Cons: Downstairs entrance hall needs a bit of redecoration. Wifi is slow if many users - fine at off-peak times. Overall, no major issues.
Location: Central location, quite near Passeig de Gracia.
I've stayed in the Martinval twice now because it really exceeded my expectations - great place. Large rooms with high ceilings and a real old Barcelona feel from the period building and elevator. There rooms themselves are big and seem to have been refitted and redecorated recently. Cheaper rooms face inward and only have windows to the central ventilation shaft. Better rooms face out and can have a small balcony. All beds clean and comfortable. TVs working; hairdryer provided; free bottled water - nice touches. Slept well, however an orange safety light is on at night - could annoy some people (but I didn't ask if you could switch it off). Staff were especially friendly and helpful. Location: excellent. Close to shops, restaurants and walking distance to the centre. Metro close too - 2 blocks. No breakfast provided but good cafes are everywhere in BCN. Overall, you get a very good deal for the price. A hidden gem.

Super cute hostel close to the city centre.Posted Aug 18, 2013
Cons: Would have been great to have a fridge in the room and be able to control air conditioning.
The hostel was very clean, with comfortable beds and nice clean bathroom. All major sights are in the vicinity. Good restaurants with delicious food nearby.

Not a Hotel its a Room Only no Kettle etcPosted Mar 6, 2013
Location: Close to metro and main areas.
The word Hotel should be removed from your website as this is a Hostal and i was caught out when booking up for 3 males at the cost of 390 euros for 3 nights we had a triple room 1 single and 1 double bed 1 cupboard with limited space to hang your clothes , No kettle but found out on our way home you could purchase a drink at the reception. The room is very basic ,clean towels changes each day but of very poor quality. The location is great easy access to the metro etc. As we were on a lads weekend away we survied with no problems but this would be a place i would not take my partner.

Very helpful staff, room was very clean!Posted Dec 19, 2012 on Hotels.com
The staff at Hostal Martinval was very welcoming and helpful in planning our next day of sightseeing! We only speak a little Spanish and the staff member spoke slower to help us understand. Then, he also asked if we preferred English and spoke very good English with us. There were maps available for 3 euros so we purchased one and he showed us the top sights to see during our limited timeframe. This was great because we didn't have much time to plan and he helped us plan out our entire next day! He was very nice and said he was there to help us. The room was very clean, yet basic and looked as if the rooms had been recently renovated. It is in an old building with an old fashioned elevator. I thought this was unique and charming, but it freaked out my husband (he took the stairs! :) Overall, this hostal was great value for our money. A supermarket is close by to get drinks/snacks, it is very close by the Renfe stop at Passeig de Gracia if you are coming/going to the airport, and it is also close to the Diagonal, Girona, and Passeig de Gracia metro stops to get to various other neighborhoods in Barcelona. Muchas Gracias!

Great location anPosted Oct 20, 2012
Cons: Basic room
Great location close to most important places in Barcelona and main metro lines. It is an old building recently restored (very nice). Very few furniture makes it a little uncomfortable. VERY basic rooms. Internet works poorly. Overall is good value for money.
