Pensión Ciudadela in Barcelona
It is a clean, economic, family run hostel in the Gothic Quarter, in the center of Barcelona. Located in a classic building in the Born area, we are just one block away from Ciudadela Park, one of the city’s most important green areas, which houses the Barcelona’s Zoo; also, the beach is just down the road from here.

Our location is magnificent, 200 meters away you can find Santa María del Mar (a beautiful Catalan gothic church), the Picasso Museum, located in one of the famous palaces of Montcada street, and you can get to Barcelona’s Cathedral within a 15 minutes walk.

The Born area is one of the ancient historic quarters of Barcelona, full of culture. Its name means “tournament”, because here is where the medieval jousts took place. It is famous for housing the “Catedral del mar” (Sea Cathedral), as well as the recently renovated Born Market, today a trendy cultural center.

The Born combines tradition and modernity. Through narrow and winding medieval streets you can choose among a variety of good restaurants, ethnic food, simple terraces, “tapas” bars.... You will also find a wide offer for shopping, which goes from fashion artisans’ workshops to the best independent avant-garde designers. It´s a cool, cosmopolitan and lively neighborhood!

Near Pensión Ciudadela there is also the maritime area of “Port Vell” (the old deck), with elegant shops and several dinning and drinking options. Just crossing the beautiful “Rambla del mar” you can arrive to the Barcelona Aquárium.

Lastly, just five minutes away on foot from the hostel you will arrive to the fishing quarter of Barceloneta, famous for its nice and lively beaches, its “chiringuitos” (beach bars) and seafood restaurants.
