“Wonderful place with perfect location & hosts”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2013

First thing we liked about this b&b is the location. Very central, easy walk to plaza catalunya. Metro station 3-4 mins walk.
There are some very nice squares/'plazas' at 5 mins walking distance from the location. Carena pointed to some very nice local bars and tapas places around the corner. Hosts, Alex and Carena were wonderful. Gave us directions to many places/restaurants, suggested things to do. Carena even booked the online tickets for sagrada familia for us. Which saved us some time. They themselves travel a lot so they know what guests expect from a b&b. They also helped us to carry our bags down the stairs.
We took the cab from airport since we reached at night and it was around 30€, right in front of their door. While going back we took the train and reach airport in 50 mins.
The house itself is nice and clean. It is a 3 bedroom flat and guests live in each of the bedrooms. Nice big hall to relax and watch tv/read, with small balcony overlooking the street. One can use the kitchenware and tea/coffee machine throughout the day. Lot of travel guides to and other books to read. Since we stayed over Christmas, we were the only guests and it was very quiet.
Breakfast was fresh and good to start your day on a happy note.
All in all a very good experience., would stay there again and would definitely recommend.

I have been meaning to write this review for a long time. My friend and I stayed at this B and B around a year ago for 3 nights in Barcalona. We loved it. The neighbourhood was a lot of fun and it was nice to stay somewhere that felt a bit 'less touristy' than other places. The regular owners were away when we were there... there was a wonderful fellow named Roc who was our host. He met us upon arrival and graciously helped us with our luggage. He gave us all sorts of hints and tips about things to do and see. He even went out with us one night to show us a couple of his favourite spots! We had great conversations with him and the other guests from France around the breakfast table and in the common room... an incredible, multicultural experience. Loved it and would not hesitate to recommend.

This little gem is the best kept secret in the heart of Barcelona. Really well located, we were able to just walk everywhere from the metro, to the beach, to the nice restaurants and plazas in town. Alex and Carina were really nice hosts, showing us around and letting us know about the happenings in the city. We also enjoyed the daily yummy breakfast. We highly recommend Nisia for your upcoming stay in Barcelona! Cindy & Charles

We just returned from Barcelona, we had a really great stay in Nisia, the service is great, the location is very good, 20 minutes to walk to the center and the owners, Alex and Carina , are wonderful. They help us to find restaurants, events and atractions. The breakfast is delicious and the coffee is amazing!

Nisia B&B is the best place to stay expecially for a couple. Carina and Alex are superfriendly and they are always available to give every sort of advice.
The rooms are small but extremely clean, the room was cleaned more often than expected. As for the breakfast: it was well assorted and the coffe was prepared using the real Moka! And you can have tea and coffe any time you want during the day!
Carina and Alex are trusting and warm people and they truly deserve to have such a good reviews!
