This is a well located, simple, and clean guest house. The service staff were very welcome and helpful. Our first floor room was small but well kept. The room was well lit with a balcony and AC, though it did not have a proper closet or towel hooks in the bathroom. The mattress wasn't super supportive but couldn't call it... More

Stayed for 2 nights. Lovely small hotel, more like an an English B+B. We had room 1 which has a small balcony over the Main Street. Which meant it was noisy. Busy street with traffic. Glass shower in the bedroom. A bit strange- watching your partner showering from bed. Staff were very helpful, gave us a map and helped us... More

Charming little hotel with a really familiar atmosphere. The staff is really nice and helps you out if needed. I cannot confirm other critics saying that the staff was absent; the contrary is the case. The rooms are nice. Little, but nice. Everything was clean during all our stay. There is a good breakfast, which you can eben take in... More

Very friendly welcome at the hotel. The staff was helpful and charming. Our room was a special offer by booking, but in general it was quite okay. The room was small, but clean - but in Barcelona you just stay there for sleeping. Breakfast was also okay - you can choose from a buffet, what you want and have your... More

Everything was great. Big room, good bathroom, terrific breakfast, attentive staff, near station and Gaudi attractions. At night there are numerous restaurants within easy walking distance on Carrer de Consell de Cent.

Just got back from our stay in Barcelona and very very pleasently surprised by this lovely little guesthouse. Be prepared for attentive personalized service instead of the runn of the mill mass production style hotels that there are oh so many off! Its small with only 8 spacious rooms, very well designed, very comfortable beds, and very well located. We... More

Well after just getting back from here i must say that although on here they are listed as a hostel, on other sites they are saying they are a hotel. Well im sorry they are far from a hotel. All you get is a small room. Although we booked a superior room, i believe that means we had a balcony.... More

We loved this little hotel! The ambience is so friendly and all the staff is really kind and helpful, for everything you need. The room was clean and with very big shower. The location is perfect! The quarter is near to the center and full of little and good restaurants. Good breakfast in a beautiful living-room. We had 4 special... More

We stayed in Cien in Mar-2013. Location is super! just near the Square of Catalonia - this is the heart of the city. To almost all sightseeing we went by feet (except Guel park and Sagrada Familia). Our room was clean, not very specious, but it was more than ok for us, as we walked all days long. We had... More

We stayed at this venue on 2 separate occasions in September for a total of 3 nights. Can confirm that the property is very well located not far from la Rambla and about a 10 minute walk from placa Catalunya. Venue seems to be a converted multi floor Apartment(s). Management are very hospitable and went to extraordinary levels to provide... More

Staying in Eixample

Neighborhood Profile
Passing through the glorious Plaça Catalunya, you enter the newer city district of Eixample, literally translated as “extension,” which immediately becomes recognizable by its more spacious streets and elegant atmosphere. The main artery of this sizable district, Passeig de Gracia, is lined with high-end international designer stores. Not to be outdone, the glitz and glamour of this zone is perhaps best exemplified by the comfortable and lavish five-star hotels that flank the divine and modernistic buildings from some of the world’s most recognized architects such as Gaudi and Montaner.
