Nice apartment complex just behind Sagrada Familia. Very cosy, clean and comfortable. We stayed in a very small room for two but for 3 nights it was ok. There are kitchen and beautiful living room where you could spend the time and have breakfast etc. The wifi signal sometimes a little bit weak. All the rest is perfect!

It should be noted for travellers that the photos on the website are largely quite outdated and/or don't accurately reflect that this is a very run apartment. Cleanliness was certainly an issue. Couches were completely stained to the extent that I would not recommend that anyone sit on them. Unless you rent the bigger room, there is no natural light... More

Although I realize the price is great for a Guest House in a large city, I found this location to be quite a distance from everywhere I wanted to be. Yes, it is just a few feet away from the Sagrada Familia but that also means there are loads of tourists at the front door making it tricky to get... More

We wanted to stay in the B&B, but it was full so we opted for the Glory Facade because of the location (less than one block from two metro lines and literally 50 feet from Sagrada Familia) and the positive reviews. Excellent communication before we arrived, then Meri met us at the house, as arranged. She showed us around, offered... More

My wife and I stayed in the Sorolla Room of the Glory Facade Guest House from June 2 to June 6. Super easy to get there from the airport...buy a T-10 card at the airport train station, take the train to Sants Estacio, then hop on the L5 to Sagrada Familia. Super easy to get around the metro stations in... More

I've stayed at padilla guest house September 2011 and was glad to find that they now had another place, and it's just opposite Sagrada Familia! It's so well located! The time we visited was the mece festival and you could hear the musical playing from the church opposite when staying indoors. It's an apartment so if you have a bunch... More

The Glory Facade Guesthouse is the perfect place to stay in Barcelona if you are staying for a short or long time and are looking for a quiet, cheap apartment with good location. It is situated next to La Sagrada Familia, Metro, Tourist buses, Starbucks, souvenir shops, restaurants, bars, parks...and yet it is very peacful and quiet. It takes you... More

The location if this guesthouse is great, and we found it really easy to explore the city from here. The room was tiny but pretty good value. It did feel a but like staying in a students flat (very clean one) but I would stay here again, in one of the bigger rooms perhaps.

We stayed here for a week and felt very comfortable here. We stayed in the Soller room. The room is small, just large enough for the bed, really. It is a nicely decorated and furnished apartment. We enjoyed meeting the other guests, and didn't feel we were in each other's way at all. The apartment is in a good, safe... More

My friend and I stayed here for 2 nights at the end of our Mediterranean cruise. Kiku was great about responding quickly to all of my emails, and Meri met us at the apartment the morning of our arrival. We had the Picasso and Dali rooms and shared the bathroom in between the two. Both were very comfortable and clean.... More
