A Room with a Loo: 4 budget hotels with great bathrooms in Barcelona
The WC, loo, bathroom, restroom, toilet or in Spanish, servicios. How important is the loo to you when you travel? Personally, it’s a pretty important feature and can make or break my hotel experience.
When looking for cheap hotels in Barcelona (and all over Europe) you will come across many hostals and pensions which offer shared bathrooms. Note that this will not be exactly like a youth hostel experience, in that you may only share the bathroom with one other room. The point is, if you want a private bathroom, you will pay more.
In effort to help all of you who want a pristine WC, we offer our Barcelona cheapo list of Best Bathrooms. Here goes:
Hello BCN Hostel
This is a backpacker style hostel in Poble Sec, but, its bathrooms are excellent and made for lots of traffic. No gross, hair-clogged showers here! And no waiting thanks to all the stalls, sink space and showers.
Well, Lleo’s busy location is not my favorite, as it can be a tad on the noisy side. The bathrooms are top-notch though, with lots of amenities.
On a fun and artsy street in the Born barri, this hotel scores points for being stylish, centrally located, and amenity-rich. Bathrooms are modern and some even have bathtubs!
This has been a long-time cheapo fave. We like the location, the cozy ambiance, and the loos! Grau will appeal to all ages and is an excellent value for your euro buck.
