We stayed at Casa Marcelo in July. How disappointing. Not only were the rooms tiny and we had no space to open our bags, but there is no air con - and this time of year it is 30+ degrees!! If you open the window you hear everything that is going on in about 10 other apartments as well invite... More

We recently stayed at Casa De Marcelo in June 2014 for 6 nights. It was our second time here! Where do we begin??? Marcelo and Olivier went above and beyond to ensure we enjoyed our stay with them and to help us make the most of our time in beautiful Barcelona. They run Casa de Marcelo with class and professionalism.... More

It was our first 4 day trip to Barcelona, although we were late for our check-in, Marcelo was waiting for us in front of the door with a great smile and very welcoming! He made us feel very comfortable in his house and recommended us some amazing local restaurants where food and service was outstanding. The apartment benefits from a... More

Casa de Marcelo was a wonderful find for the two nights we stayed prior to leaving on a cruise. After flying in to Barcelona we followed Marcelo's directions to get to the B&B. Two short train rides and a five minute walk from Estacio de Franca station brought us to the front door. We called ahead, rang the bell, and... More

Such a beautiful little gem with a fantastic location! When walking onto the gobble stone streets and into the old front door of the apartment building, you instantly feel like you are part of this beautiful neighborhood... not just another tourist. Marcelo was such a great host and our balcony room was cozy and relaxing. We enjoyed having a view... More

This small B&B is utterly charming, as its its host. We had a wonderfully comfortable room (shared bath, which was never a problem) in an ideal location. We walked almost everywhere that mattered, and found ourselves on the edge of the Gothic Quarter, conveniently close to a multitude of restaurants and shopping, as well as to Barcelona's spectacular city marina,...

We stayed at Marcelo's for six nights. We got there from the airport with local Renfe trains - traveling with those was very straightforward based on Marcelo's instructions. The hotel is located less than 5 minutes walk from Estacio de Franca. Olivier was at the B&B welcoming us, and thoroughly explained everything we needed to know. Meeting the hosts we... More

Marcelo is a good B&B located in El Born district. It is well located near some good restaurants, bars and boutiques. B&B is clean, very well maintained and the the breakfast was a good spread. The location is in walking distance from Picasso Museum and not too far from city bus tourist bus stop. Special mention to Marcello who made... More

We stayed at the Casa Marecelo for 4 nights in early June and highly recommend it. We had a room at the back with a private bathroom as we were travelling with our 4 year old and it was perfect. Marcelo and Olivier are wonderful hosts, meeting us at the car when we arrived and helping with luggage when we... More

I stayed here for three nights. The location of B&B is good, less than 8 minutes walking distance to Barcelona Estacio de Franca (Barcelona Franca Train Station) and Barceloneta station (Barcelona metro station), located in historical and pedestrian Borne district. The interior of premises is cosy and unique, an old Europe impression but modern facilities. Make sure you give either... More
