This must be one of the best kept secrets right in the heart of Barcelona. It is a very short walk from Plaza Catalunya in the streets of Gotic. Very personal, relaxed and friendly environment.. When checking in there was a great attention to detail to ensure we've got all we need to enjoy and make most of our stay.... More

The great reviews are true! This place is truly a gem. I booked the single room, with a bath ensuite, and it was perfect for me! Location was one of the most important factors for me since I was only to be in Barcelona for a couple of days. I also wanted a smaller, more personal property with charm and... More

All the reviews sum this place up quite well. However, enough cannot be said about its location. It truly is in the centre of everything, you really can't help but feel like a local staying there. Also, what's a big help, is that the A1 bus from the airport stops at Placa de Catalunya which is not even a ten... More

Good place. Very nice breakfast. Choose an ensuite room if possible, it's very convenient. Warm and receptive hosts. Rooms are decorated in a subtle way, has a good feel to it. Recommended stay in Barcelona.

This is a true guest house, not a cheap hotel. It occupies two floors of a traditional apartment building right in the middle of all attractions. The owners pay such attention to the details, fresh flowers in the rooms, candles and linen table clothes for breakfast, which is fresh and varied. Not for those wanting an American style hotel or...

This place is fine if you like a tiny, concrete room with a tiny window that opens into the middle of the building so you have a view of (and sound of) the water pipes. Very, very basic. The host, Nicolas, was nice. The breakfast was ok. I read TA reviews before booking this place and thought it would be... More

So much in the middle of town that we sometimes had to wait for an event to complete before going home. A true local apartment building, run by folk with principles - oh how cute - and with excellent taste. A few nights here and you adjust too the Catalan way; late to rise, a gentle start to the day,... More
