Live & Dream is a boutique style hotel situated in a quiet area with good access to Sants railway station. It is an ideal location being just a 10 minutes walk to the Plaza Espanya from where you can catch the Aerobus to Barcelona Airport at a cost of 5.90 euros. It is also just minutes from a metro station... More

Very clean, close to Sants railway station & in a street which allows a good nights rest. Very economic when considering its quite central location. We would have no doubt in recommending this to others visiting Barcelona .

The bed was comfortable (although I had a backache next day, but it might be because of a lot of walking in the city). Everything was quite nice. We were in the ground floor so sometimes it was a bit too noisy during the night when people where going out or in. We had a balcony but it was in... More

I searched any low price hotel with comfort, the site recommended me this one. I and my wife arrived at Franca station by night train from Paris. So we took the metro then walked about 5 minutes or so. This hotel is not in hotels & attractions-concentrated area. So it was very easy to see the local people doing -... More

Cozy hotel located close to Barcelona's main train station. It doesn't have big rooms but they are ok. Rooms in the main floor have a back terrace where you can enjoy a meal or a drink if there's good weather. Good choice for staying in Barcelona.

First of all I would like to say that this bed and breakfast would probably be a good place to stay under different conditions. However for me it was terrible. I paid 55 euros for my stay at live and dream because I needed a good night's sleep before catching a 7.5 hour train to Paris in the morning at... More

My boyfriend and I spent 7 wonderful nights at Live and Dream. The place was perfect when we got there and they changed our bed sheets and towels every 2 days. The staff is nice and helpful and they speak good English. The place might be hard to find at first but just get off at Placa de Saints and... More

I chose this guest house because it is located next to the Sants train station (about a 10 minutes walk away), the train being in my opinion the cheapest and easiest way to get to/from the airport in Barcelona. Another reason for this particular choice is that downtown hotels in Barcelona are rather expensive, this guest house, located slightly away... More
