Hostal Aslyp 114 is a no-frills, value hotel, located between Plaza Francesc Macia and Sants train station. It's a little off the tourist track, but it's close to public transportation and several shops and restaurants. Occupying a floor in in older residential apartment building, it has a modern, cheery vibe, and it includes breakfast in its rates. The 11 guest rooms are well-maintained and cozy with flat-screen TVs and en-suite bathrooms. Wine is for sale in the lobby, and the hotel has a public computer and free Wi-Fi. Travelers could also consider Hostel Grau, a stylish eco-friendly hotel near Plaza Catalunya and La Rambla, which offers free coffee and cakes in the morning and a free wine hour, though rates can be higher.
The budget-friendly Hostal Aslyp 114 has a contemporary vibe and a dash of style that might not be obvious from the gray, drab apartment building in which it occupies a floor. The building's lobby is dark and cream-toned, and guests take the elevator or climb the stairs up to the hotel, which is bright, fresh, and modern thanks to light-wood laminate floors, white and gray walls, recessed lighting, and colorful furniture. A lovely nook here displays wine for sale. Although there's some limited seating in the reception area, public spaces are limited to the breakfast room, which has white tables, orange chairs, a few cozy armchairs, and a brightly lit fish tank. The hotel draws mainly budget-conscious couples and friends traveling together, although families have stayed here too.
A 12-minute walk north of Sants Station, with restaurants, shops and public transportation nearby
A 12-minute walk north of Sants Station, Hostal Aslyp 114 is in a busy area with restaurants and shops on the surrounding streets. The hotel is a bit off the tourist track near Les Corts, and it's not within walking distance of the major tourist sights. Major sights and areas require a metro ride to reach. Sagrada Familia is 12 minutes away by public transportation, and La Rambla and the Gothic Quarter are about a 20-minute metro ride away. The hotel isn't far from Camp Nou, a soccer stadium (17 minutes on public transportation). There's a bus stop within a two-minute walk of the hotel and the closest metro stop is about a 10-minute walk away. Barcelona El-Prat Airport is a 20-minute drive from the hotel.
Streamlined, contemporary rooms with flat-screen TVs, AC, and en-suite bathrooms
The Hostal Aslyp 114's 11 rooms are bright and tidy with streamlined furnishings and laminated wood floors giving a neat and airy look. Beds are white with single-color bed runners and gray pillows that are complemented by gray curtains. There’s not a ton of space, but each room has enough square footage for a bed, desk, and a small wardrobe to store clothes and valuables in safes. Small wall-mounted flat-screen TVs, air-conditioning, and free Wi-Fi round out the in-room amenities. However, a couple features are lacking such as coffee- and tea-making facilities. Bathrooms, in a fun mishmash of patterned black-gray-and-white floor tiles, have narrow shower stalls, toiletries, and hairdryers.
Freebies include a breakfast buffet, a coffee and tea station, and Wi-Fi
This hotel covers the essentials, and a bit more -- throwing in a breakfast buffet of cold meats, cheeses, pastries, fruit, coffee, and teas. There’s also a vending machine and wine for sale in the lobby, plus free coffee and tea throughout the day. Wi-Fi is free throughout the hotel, and there's a public computer available for guests' use. Public parking can be found nearby for a fee.
