We loved this place! From the minute we booked this hotel we received the best customer service and constant communication. Roberto is amazing and once we got to the B&B he took the time to map out all of the sights, restaurants and bars to visit. This is so helpful especially when you get to a city like Barcelona and...

Ideal, Very nice area. Walking distance to major sightseeing and close to station which we needed to travel out for a day visiting our daughter. Relaxed, quirky, Home from home. Very nice and ample breakfast. Loved our room and the shower was great.

We had a great time in Barcelona! We booked the trip spontaneously and found through the good recessions in the Internet and on Trip Advisor this cute bed & breakfast "El Balcon del Born". When we arrived there we had a very warm welcome from Roberto. He explained us the city and made a plan for us with our interests... More

I've rarely stayed in a place in Europe where they try to make you feel so welcome! Pros : very good location in the heart of Born, 5 minutes from Barceloneta, 10 from Rambla or Catalunya. Welcoming, friendly and fun staff. Comfortable lodgings, good facilities, charming and with a certain something that gives an otherwise nice place a special vibe... More

We stayed in this B&B for the last 5 nights of our stay in Barcelona and it was great. One thing I want to say is that although we thought the shared bathroom was going to be an issue, it was not at all. They had two full bathrooms and one half bathroom available, and most of the time all... More

Enjoyed my two-night stay here - was lucky enough to come at a time when I didn't have to share the shared bathrooms with anyone. Stayed in a room in the apartment upstairs from the main apartment. It was just myself and a very quiet South Korean couple at the far end of the apartment (they had their own bathroom).... More

We stayed in El Balcon del Born in April with our family: My husband and my 1 year old son, my father and my sister. When we booked the rooms they recommended the most suitable rooms for our specific setup and when we arrived they reserved a bathroom for our two rooms. The welcome was very friendly and everybody was... More

We couldn't have asked for a better location, 10 - 15 minute walk to the beach, right in the centre to the El Born district and easily accessible to everywhere we needed to get to. The B&B was extremely friendly, being greeted on arrival and shown to our room and then given a map with some tips of nice places... More

This B&B is excellent. In the heart of Born, close to the beach, run by Anna, who was incredibly friendly and helpful (especially her recommendations). I Would very much recommend this B&B to anyone looking for an exciting Barcelona break. Forget boring hotels, this us way more fun and provides a small taste of what it might be like to... More

This is an old building with much character in a convenient position in the centre of the gothic quarter and close to the marina. It is situated in a pedestrian precinct, so no traffic noise. You can look down on the cafes below from the balconies, but the hubbub did not go on too late. Transport links are nearby. All... More
