We spent the second portion of our honeymoon and chose Casa Marcelo because we wanted something charming close to the city and not cookie-cutter and far from everything like some of the beach hotels. Marcelo and Olivier were welcoming and spent time with us every day to listen to our questions and provide suggestions and advice based on what we... More

This is a great place to stay in Barcelona. It is perfectly situated in El Born - we chose the balcony room which had a beautiful view of the bustling district below. The room was stylishly decorated and immaculately clean. Marcelo and Olivier could not have been more helpful and made us feel very welcome indeed. I look forward to... More

It was our first visit to Spain and we could not have picked a better place to stay. It was like visiting family. We had a lovely room with our own bathroom. Very nice breakfast and kitchen open to us if we needed anything later. Marcelo and Oliver were so helpful with all our questions. We needed mani pedis, Oliver... More

Excellent. Centrally located, close to Metro stations and the shore. We had an interior-facing room, meaning our window did not look out onto the street but onto a small courtyard behind the building. While I could see an aesthetic advantage of a street-facing window, I think this option worked out well for us in shielding us from the nighttime noise... More

This place makes you feel like you are at home. The decoration, the ambiance-everything is done with a lot of passion and with a sense for hospitality. Marcelo and Olivier are very attentive and helpful and they are trying to make your stay as comfortable as possible. I reccomend this B&B to everyone who appreciates personal service, familiar ambiance, a... More

We cannot thank owners & staff at Casa Marcelo enough for really a perfect stay. Staying here really enhanced our trip to Barcelona. Our host Olivier was warm, welcoming & very professional. His knowledge & advice enabled us to have a great stay in Barcelona. Casa Marcelo offers excellent value for money. Lovingly & stylishly restored the historic apartment has... More

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
