Booked well in advance, and were definitely not disappointed. Great location, great cava! If we ever venture back to Barcelona, this will be our first choice. Thanks for your hospitality Marcelo and Olivier.

My wife and I had a great time staying at Casa Marcelo. The staff are friendly and helpful. The BnB was clean, comfortable, I a great location and safe. The breakfast provided is a great way to meet the other guests and enjoy some local fruits before enjoying Barcelona. I would definitely recommend staying at Casa Marcelo Barcelona.

We felt very lucky to have found Casa Marcelo on our first trip to Barcelona. It was perfectly positioned for wandering the old streets and we loved the way we could come back when we were tired and have use of the kitchen, fridge and balcony. This meant we could have a light and cheaper lunch. The bedroom was beautiful... More

Our family of four stayed at Casa Marcelo for three days and it was fantastic! The location is perfect for exploring old town Barcelona and the marina/beach area. And Marcelo and Olivier were excellent hosts. They made us feel right at home and were very helpful with recommendations on restaurants, information about the city and booking tickets for local activities.... More

Wonderful stay at Casa De Marcelo... Marcelo is an excellent, friendly and SUPER helpful host who went out of his way to help make our trip the best. The casa is well located in The Born area, and elegantly furnished. I thought sharing a bathroom would be weird, but it wasn't at all, and in fact I didn't even notice... More

What a special place!! Marcelo, Oliver, & their staff are so welcoming & helpful. We were a group of eight, & pretty much took over the place, had all we needed. The location is perfect for shopping, food, & the beach. Can't wait to visit again!! Thank you, Marcelo & Oliver

I can’t say enough to paint a perfect picture for this Bed & Breakfast. It has fantastic central location for beach, city and metro which are all in walking distance. Marcelo and his staff get 5 star.

Staying in El Born / La Ribera

Neighborhood Profile
El Born / La Ribera
The labyrinth that is El Born becomes most apparent the moment you turn down one of its side streets. But this is one of the few labyrinths you might actually enjoy losing your way in. After all, there are few places that live and breathe such exciting energy regardless of the time of day. This neighborhood seamlessly transcends the old and new parts of the city, reflected in its vast array of restaurants ranging from fancy Michelin-star establishments to trendy fusion restaurants. Here you'll find historical and cultural attractions such as the popular Picasso Museum and the Gothic cathedral La Santa Maria del Mar, where you just might be able to catch a traditional Catalan wedding.
