A fantastic boutique hotel, in the heart of Bacelona, near the Pedrera, between Paseo de Gracia and Rambla. All is very good: stilish rooms, continental breakfast, service, people. But the atmosfere is the best thing

The staff are really helpful and the breakfast is good. If you have any other room than the one we had, you will enjoy staying in this hotel. Unfortunately we could only get the service well room (Room 6, the Rosello Room). It should only be used for storage as it has no light and no air. The ventilator is... More

First of all I regret that your stay in our hotel has been so unpleasant. Our job is to make our guests happy and obviously you were not. Unfortunately, if we did not get any complaints from you during your stay at the hotel, is difficult to us help you now. Anyway I want to answer you, I do not... More

We stayed for 2 nights in a large room with beautiful terrace overlooking a pretty courtyard, perfect for eating breakfast in the morning sunshine. One of the most comfortable beds I've slept in and huge. The bed and breakfast is situated on a busy street near Casa Mila. But circa 1905 is an oasis of calm, so quiet. Staff were... More

I stayed at hotel for both business and pleasure. It was a lovely experience. Most notable are the people. They are warm, welcoming, helpful in every way without being intrusive. One has as much privacy or contact as desired. The breakfast was very good with fresh fruit, bread, pastries juice, cheese and strong,excellent coffee. I stayed in the Provenza room... More

We stayed at the hotel for two nights prior to going on a cruise and for a further stay of one night on our return. The hotel is in a very good location for sightseeing and restaurants. The people on reception were very welcoming and helpful. We were treated as individuals from the beginning. Bedroom with balcony was excellent. Interesting... More

Stayed 4 nights between Christmas and New Years. Location is terrific--easy walking to most of Barcelona highlights. We had Provenza Suite which is 2 Provenza rooms with a shared sitting room--very comfortable and spacious. Breakfast seemed a little lacklustre after our experience at Palacio Ramalhete in Lisbon but it was adequate. Staff were polite but not as helpful as I... More

Stayed here as the last of 3 places on a mini European tour for my 40th birthday. The location is brilliant and you can walk to nearly everywhere, but if you are going further afield there is an underground station just around the corner. My husband and I always stay in b&b's as we find them far more personal than... More

I would rate Circa 1905 as excellent based the service, location and overall value. Because this B&B only has nine rooms and a main desk with concierge on duty, you receive an unusual level of personal service if you want it. For me it was like staying on the concierge floor of the Ritz Carlton for which you would pay... More
