We have stayed at the Barcelona three times in the last four years. Why? Based on our first two stays, we thought this was the best deal in Miami Beach. Now, after stay #3, we’re not so sure. The management has changed and appears to be not up to the job isn’t. The Good? Location! Price! Simple comfort! Around the... More

a great place to stay, low key, very basic, very well situated near the spanish street, and near the best French cafe A la Folie, not far from the beach and near the big mall street and all main hotels.

Barcelona Guest House is a great place to stay if you are on a budget and want to be in the heart of south beach. It is easy to get to from the airport as the shuttle bus lets you off just about 2 blocks away. The Guesthouse is right off of Espaniola Way but is off to the side... More

My husband and I staying at the Barcelona Guesthouse during one of Miami's busiest weeks, WMC. We had an amazing experience! The location is tucked away but not desolate to Miami's charm. Great food and shopping in walking distance. It was just far enough away from the hustle and bustle that we were able to have a relaxing weekend away.... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here over the past weekend for the Boat Show. The location of the hotel i believe was the best part, 2 blocks to pretty much everything, art dist., convention center, the beach..we walked up and down collins ave a lot which is 2 blocks east. It is gated and quiet which made me feel safe.... More

My rating is more like 2.5*. I went to Miami in late February, and found you couldn't even sneeze there for under $150 a night at that time. This place was about half that price and so I booked it with a bit of trepidation, knowing how accommodations can be in South Beach even at twice the price, but my... More

The guest house is located just a few minutes walking to the beach, so we had so much ease going to the beach every day we were there. Before we headed for Miami, I thought the place would be noisy because it is at the center of Miami Beach, but I was surprised when we arrived there, because it is... More

The room was ok, it felt pretty rundown and the bathroom in particular seemed dirty and in need of a major remodel. The room smelled like a recent guest had smoked in there, though smoking is not allowed. The location is great and I actually think it's great for the price... but I think next time I'll spend a bit... More

I really wanted to find something in between "average," which this place is not, and "Very Good." If I have one hand on a hot stove, and the other in the freezer, my temperature, on the whole, is "average." The room was large, clean, and basic with extras. Basic meaning some of the cabinetry was unfinished, extras meaning a very... More
