Small, quiet hotel on an upper storey of a Barcelona apartment block a short distance from Placa Catalunya and Passeig de Gracia. It has unusual, eclectic decor that gives it an unusual homely feel that's a welcome relief from the homogenized hotels you usually experience. It's great value for money given its location. Breakfast was good but you need to... More

Romanticist beware...you will not want to leave. This is what we dream of at night. A time warp experience. As in most hotels of this kind you will be hauling your luggage up the stairs by yourself but its a fair trade for the destination.

Visited this hotel in August and loved the vintage Spanish style. Immediately we were made to feel very welcome and both owners were very keen to make sure we had a wonderful stay. We upgraded our breakfast and ate on the terrace everyday. What a lovely start to any day spent exploring Barcelona- we opened our balcony door to find... More

I can't honestly say it is worth five stars, but this is a very nice, and extremely quiet hotel in the center of Barcelona. Just three blocks from Plaza Catalunya and one from Espai Metro stop. In a safe neighborhood walkable to Barri Gottic for us fifty year olds and can I repeat, very quiet. Antiques everywhere in the rooms... More

We stayed for 4 nights in August and loved this place. It is full of character and it is clear that it is a labour of love for the owners. The place is full of antique furniture and fittings and is a delight. We opted for the simple breakfast every day on the small terrace outside our room, which is... More

If you want to experience the real spirit of Barcelona this is the place to stay. Its more like a house from the early 1900s than a hotel and its also very centrally located being 5 minutes away from the plaza catalunya. The hospitality is also first class.

Good location a short walk from most of the main tourist spots, we found the location ideal. The room was clean and had french windows opening onto a terrace where we ate breakfast each day. The service was relaxed and very friendly and we felt very welcomed throughout our stay. We would definitely stay here again and will recommend to... More

Forget the boring "jelly mould" hotels - this place is crammed full of interesting stuff - it is just like staying at Grandma's. We stayed in 102 which had it's own private covered terrace which was at the front but we heard zero road noise with the doors closed - we had breakfast on the rear terrace as one of... More

We stayed here a year ago (I'm a bit delayed in writing my trip advisor reviews!). We only stayed one night because we were running out of time on our holiday, but should have stayed a few. This is a one of a kind type hotel, absolutely filled with lovely little knick-knacks and there is so much character in every... More
