The Hostal Excellence is a much more simple establishment than its name might suggest. It offers half a dozen completely up-to-date rooms with parquet floors and functional wooden furniture. Some rooms have an ensuite bathroom, while others share two bathrooms at the entrance to the hostel.
The location is one of the great advantages of this establishment. It is located in a very quiet, isolated street next to Plaça de Catalunya which is a superb starting point for exploring the whole of Barcelona's old quarter with the Gothic Quarter, Rambla and the Raval. Passeig de Gràcia is also close by.
