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

This is a very nice hotel, located right in the heart or Barcelona. As had been mentioned in other posts, the owners and staff really go out of there way to ensure your stay is pleasant and enjoyable. They truly care. We opted for the breakfast and it was very good. Our party stayed in 2 room 107 and 102.... More

We chose this little cute boutique hotel to stay at during our first visit in Barcelona. I don't think we could have made a better choice. The hotel had a very unique character and style and it was certainly not the standard soulless accommodation that you will find in big chain hotels. The owners were very helpful and quick to... More

My wife and I stayed here for four nights in late May 2014 to celebrate our anniversary. The hotel is weird and quirky - but in a good way! It is stuffed full of antiques - furniture, paintings, objet d'art, even the coffee pots! It might not be to everyone's taste, especially if you're used to more modern hotels but... More

I picked this purely by chance off the Internet and what an amazing find. Very quirky with a complete overload of antiques everywhere. Very comfy room with sliding doors to an amazing shared patio complete with an abundance of lush greenery and pet birds. The staff were incredibly friendly and spoke very good English and couldn't help enough. Thoroughly recommended... More

This quirky little boutique hotel is full of personality and is marvelous and the hosts are charming and accommodating. It is situated in a great spot in the city (close to Gaudi sites, not far from the beach, good restaurants close by, Metro close) and is secured by finger print technology. You open the front door and the door of... More

If you like staying in boutique local accommodation, where the owner's personality, tastes and passions are part of the experience, then this is indeed a wonderful experience. I loved the attention to detail and little touches evident throughout my room and the hostal in general. I stayed in a single room facing on to the shared terrace and enjoyed a... More
