I'm not sure I can add much to the list of outstanding reviews suffice to say our high expectations were more than met. Marcelo and Olivier are so welcoming it was like staying with old friends. We had visited Barcelona several times previously but this was the first time we had stayed in El Born which is a delightful area... More

Olivier & Marcelo put a lot of care & thought into the guest experience at this B&B. From the moment I arrived the service & attention was so warm & generous, perfect introduction to Barcelona hospitality. The B&B is well cared for & includes many classy & sophisticated touches that we're so thoughtful & appreciated. The location cannot be bettered... More

We had a wonderful stay at Casa Marcelo. Marcelo and Olivier could not have been more gracious, kind hosts and the accommodations were ideal. The location is quite honestly the best place to be in Barcelona and the rooms we stayed in were very clean with comfortable beds. The shared bathroom was never a problem and the common areas were...

We enjoyed our stay. Marcelo and Olivier are great, and make you feel at home. The location is perfect. The down side is the rooms are not spacious and equiped, the shower isn't the best and the window is not to a nice street view.

Marcello and Olivier are perfect hosts in a lovely, central but quiet property. They were incredibly attentive to our needs, were always charming and offered more advice and help than we could reasonably expect; they even translated a Spanish document for us. They were determined we would have a successful and enjoyable trip. Every recommendation was good. We booked room... More

I cannot recommend this place highly enough. It is two minutes walk from the train station, and in the heart of the old part of the city with its narrow lanes. Marcello could not have helped us more- he was at hand to give personal recommendations and booked tickets for us. Rooms 3 and 4 are at the back along... More

This affordable B&B has charm, style and fantastic, helpful hosts in the form of Marcelo and Olivier. It's clean, quiet and has a fantastic location in the charming Born district - we particularly appreciated Olivier's restaurant recommendations. I'd have to say that the service went above and beyond - Marcelo really went out of his way to make us feel... More

It felt like we were part of the family and living at home. Marcelo and Olivier were helpful and friendly from the moment we contacted them through the whole stay. They greeted us when we arrived (be sure to call or text them to let them know you are on the train or in a taxi so they can be... More
