The hotel is in a convenient location. Nice staff.

Pros: The hotel is in a convenient location, in the Eixample district of Barcelona.
Cons: If the desk on the 1st floor isn't always manned, put up signage to direct guests where to go to check in.
Location: Trendy Avinguda Diagonal and many other interesting streets / locations / public transit stops are within walking distance.
The hotel is in a convenient location, in the Eixample district of Barcelona. The room was decent and clean, though there was no view to speak of. When I first arrived, I wondered if I was in the right place. On the 1st floor of this multi-storied building, I saw a desk which was not manned by anyone at the time. I was confused, but later told by another guest exiting the elevator that the Hostal El Ninot's reception desk was on the 2nd floor.

The staff was friendly, and very helpful. The room was clean and simple, and the bed very comfortable. The daily room service staff made sure we had clean towels for next day. Location is great with various cafes, restaurants, and convenience shops in the vicinity. It's close to Metro stops for going further afield, or connecting to rail services for going outside the city. We did a day trip to Sitges, and it was very easy from El Ninot. There are two "hostales" in the building, but be aware that the rest of the building is private apartments. If you have a room that opens to the inner part, you will hear domestic activity coming from the apartments (cooking, conversations, etc). It didn't bother us, but may be distracting for some. After a good day of sightseeing and a night out, it felt very nice to get back to a comfortable bed and clean room. I would definitely stay at El Ninot again.

We really enjoyed our stay at El Ninot. The location was good for getting around the city, the room was ideal for four of us, the kitchen area was really useful, and most of all the staff were so friendly and helpful, especially as we had a lot of questions for them! I would definitely stay here again next time we visit Barcelona.

Worth every penny! Value for money!

Was so pleased to stay at this hotel. Few minutes walk from bus stop. Short ride on the bus to the main city centre. Good cafes around to grab breakfast. Staff were very very friendly and helpful. They offered advice and directions for our two night stay in Barcelona. The room was like brand new. Very clean. Modern shower/bathroom. More like a 4 star and didn't even cost us that much. Comfy beds and pillows. Lovely decor of the room. Very spacious too.

Convenient Hotel

Posted Jul 17, 2014
The staff was super helpful and friendly, especially about answering questions about the city an ordering cab service. The hotel was comfortable and convenient. Very close to 24 hour supermarkets, coffee joints, restaurants, and public transportation. Also, very close to the major part of the city. I would totally come back again.

Based on pictures this place looks soo Ikea chic and cute for a Hostal. Our arrival experience was easy but then it went downhill after that. It was hard to sleep in our room as ventilation was lacking and the walls are super thin. We could hear EVERYTHING from all neighbors and the smell of neighbors smoke was very strong all day and night.Our shower curtain had mildew. I really wanted to like it; but it was a rough stay.

Friendly and Accommodating Staff

Posted Nov 2, 2013
Pros: Staff was very nice and accommodating. Location was great.
Cons: size of room and bathroom. no shower booth
Location: Location was good, near two metro station and Casa Mila and also good restaurants. Even close to city.
Me and my partner stayed for 3 nights, and staff was very friendly and accommodating. We went to restaurants that hotel staff recommended and it was fantastic. Hotel is surrounded with lots of good restaurants and located near two metro stations. 5 minutes walking to Casa Mila. The room was little tiny, not enough space to open our luggages, bathroom was also too small, no window in the room, but still think good value of money.
