Maybe it's only on interior room's. Picasso room was small and could have been great. Except for the bathroom smell, the less than adequate breakfast and the air conditioning on the room. Smell : drainage. Air conditioning: Loud. Breakfast: bare minimum.

We found this little gem online for a cheap price. We got lucky with a beautiful big room with a great view overlooking Barcelona. While it was a little hard to find the first time it's easy enough to get in once you know how. All the staff are very friendly and understanding of working around your time in the... More

Clean, friendly, central location. Stayed here in 2012 (the Picasso room) and it was fantastic. The owner was lovely, we got a basic continental breakfast every morning and there was a lovely corner shop within throwing distance if we wanted to stock up on extras like drinks and things to nibble on. The guest house came complete with everything including... More

My girlfriend and I stayed in the guesthouse for 7 nights in the exterior room with balcony and a private bathroom. overall, we had a good experience, but there were many things that definitely made it harder for us to enjoy the place. we'll start with the positive: the location! a walking distance to many of the main attractions and...

Friendly welcome once we managed to locate the entrance! Good location though and felt safe at night. However, sadly the beds were very uncomfortable, bathrooms weren't great (more like large wet rooms with lots of stuff to get soaked), noisy outside, nowhere to put anything away if you were to stay more than a couple of nights. Breakfast was passable... More

Staff were helpful and English was very good. Lovely breakfast of continental meats and bread. Cakes and coffee available 24/7. Great location and near a metro. Lovely district and some fab pubs and restaurants nearby. The Sagradia Familia is within walking distance.

We have stayed at Ally's House 7 times now and have been very happy every time. We travel with groups of 8 to 10 17 and 18-year old students and each time we stay at Ally's, Graciela gives us a full apartment for the 10-12 of us (so the bathrooms are just for us and the sitting and dining area...

Ally's Guest House is not a terrible place to stay in, but the myriad of cons far outweigh the pros. The location is ideal: in a calmer and quieter area but still relatively centric, within walking distance of Sagrada Familia, Passeig de Gracia, Pl. Catalunya, etc. The nearest metro stop is a 2min walk away, and the neighborhood has a... More

Very hard to find on the street. The elevator is very inconvenient for big luggage. I confirmed our time of arrival twice and we were still treated like they weren't expecting us. Not very friendly during check-in, didn't give us the room we had booked. The rooms with street view balcony are okay, nice view, but the double bed was... More

The guest house is located in an old building close to the cities main attractions and the room was surprisingly quiet and warm. The owner was easy to talk to and... More

Staying in Eixample

Neighborhood Profile
Eixample
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.
