el Jardí

Pl. Sant Josep Oriol 1, Barcelona, Catalonia, 08002, Spain

Facing charming Plaça del Pi and Plaça Sant Josep Oriol, in a building that dates to 1860, this family-friendly little budget hotel couldn't be better situated for exploring La Rambla and the Barri Gòtic. Recently refurbished, rooms have simple pine furniture, green bedspreads set off by ochre red feature walls behind the beds, and bare-bones amenities; best billets have small private terraces overlooking the church square. The in-house breakfast (€6) is excellent, and the alfresco tables at Bar del Pi, downstairs, are ideal in summer. There are five floors—the higher, the quieter—and an elevator, though you have to navigate one flight of stairs from the street level to use it. The square in front can be noisy at night, but the soundproofing is equal to the challenge. Book online, but pay your bill in cash for a 10% discount.
