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

How interesting to find a newly built hotel in central Barcelona. Might not be to everyone's taste if you want an authentic old hotel, but a great place for a short stay. Or third floor room was accessed easily with the lift, and was small but quite adequate. The bathroom was also smallish, but certainly bigger than some of the... More

Stayed 4 nights here. Very close to the Placa de Sants station - about 3-5 mins walk. I love that it is on a quiet and very local street full of local residential houses, but yet, the main road where the metro station is is just a few mins walk away. Location: I love it! The moment I arrived, I... More

We stayed 4 nights. The hotel is the only one in a residential area. There are a few nearby spots for breakfast and other meals but we didn't use them. Instead we bought supermarket food for breakfast. The hotel offers a breakfast for extra cost. For lunch and dinner meals we usually ate in old town Barcelona which is a... More

I suggest you to stay in this little Hotel in Barcelona because is simple, essential, very clean, close to the train from/for the airport, close to the subway station and very very cheap...! ;) Located in a small street really quiet and silent, so good to sleep well... ^_^

This hotel is very well situated, not far from the Barcelona main train station. We've got simply equipped tiny room (AC) without wardrobe, but clean and good enough for overnight stay. Breakfast was good, a buffet style with a selection of assorted pastries. Receptionist was very helpful with a Barcelona Tour, which we were looking for a very last moment.... More

Location was fantastic! We chose it initially due to the proximity to main train station. It was also near to the metro which 2 different lines passed through (super convenient). The area was quiet but extremely safe. The hotel was basic but it offered great service and the place was kept clean, neat and tidy. Felt great going back after... More
