Stayed four days in early April during a weekender break to Barcelona. Hotel is easy to find and a short walk from the airport coach drop-off, so recommend using that service. The hotel itself is jam-packed with antiques and paintings with a feminine slant to them and some can be bought if you like the elaborate styles. The building and... More

First visit to Barcelona and already trying to plan a return! This hotel, as mentioned by others, is very easy to find. If you arrive at a good time, don't bother with a taxi from the airport, just catch the bus which is every 10 mins during the day, to placa Catalunya and then a 10 min walk up the... More

We discovered Hostal L' Antic Espai two years ago during our first visit to Barcelona. It is an oasis of charm with beautiful rooms and the most stylish and simple breakfasts set just off the main square and within walking distance of just about everything. This year we booked in for the whole of our visit. Sergio, our host of... More

Our first trip to Barcelona celebrating our wedding anniversary and we stumbled across this lovely hotel on Tripadvisor. So many antiques and a lovely building. Our room opened up onto a lovely terrace. Centrally located and the staff/owner were more than willing to help us with directions and dinner suggestions. We will be back!!!

We stayed here for two nights following a cruise. It is an upper floor of a very old building, centrally located. Very quaint, furnished with masses of antiques. Reminiscent of an old home with warrens of rooms now converted into small little suites each the equivalent of a North American master bedroom with a tiny en suite. It has the... More

We stayed here one day prior to a cruise and two days afterwards. We found our room, which opened onto the balcony, very acceptable. It is well maintained and they were very friendly, and even managed to mail our post cards for us.

We opted for this quaint boutique hotel filled with the owner Abel's prized collections of antiques. The place was well-maintained. Danny helped us check in with state of the art fingerprint reader that we didn't even have to carry the key for the building. One day, Abel offered to take us to an antique flea market. We went in his... More

Unusual and friendly hotel with ornate decor and very friendly hosts. Our room opened onto a terrace with pot plants and birds. Breakfast served in one of the reception rooms amongst ornate furniture and wonderful gaudy ornaments - in very Bohemian style/character. The hotel is unique and highly recommended. We had a wonderful stay, and it is also centrally located... More

Well what can I say, Elton John meets Liberace meets Versace! What a delight this little hotel is. FULL of splendour and interesting artefacts but best of all hosted by Danny, who could not do enough for you. My room, which was 106 was facing the terrace which had lush green plants, antique bird cages with little chirpy birds and... More
