Barca has friendly staff, good food, and decent accommodations --- rooms are a little rough, but beds weren't bad. View from the cafe is nice.
However, while we were checking out a room, ALL of our luggage was stolen out of our locked car trunk directly in front of the hotel around 6pm. A man told us he worked for the hotel and acted like he was helping us park our car. No valuables were in sight and everything was locked in the trunk. We were in the hotel for less than ten minutes. When we returned everything was gone, including the man who said he worked for the hotel. No signs of forced entry. This was a professional job. We dealt with the local police, etc... for three hours. They were little help. The owner of Barca helped us a lot, but we never recovered any of our stuff. Be very careful with your belongings here.
