Casa de Billy Barcelona
Ranked #36 of 308 Barcelona B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed May 30, 2013

We stayed 4 nights in mid May. Siri could not have been more welcoming & offered much helpful advice. Our double room with private bath just outside the bedroom door was just fine. Location was great, not in tourist central but a block and a half to the metro. Very handy as we had some rainy spells. Breakfast croissants were light as air & served in the very elegantly appointed dining room . Would absolutely recommend it.

Room Tip: If traffic noise is likely to bother you ask for a room that does not front onto the Gran Via.

I did not like the sense of being in someone's home and being forced to make polite conversation with the owner. I do not care for dogs, especially those that are disobedient and have to come up and sniff you all over. The location is fine and the house is clean, but it is just an apartment turned into a "bed and breakfast," meaning that you have to share bathrooms and hear the noise from neighbouring apartments. The guy who runs the place does a good job, but if you are one of those people that likes to shut the door and have their own space, I think that this place is not for you.

Spent eight nights here with my mother in early may 2013. We'd booked a double but when we arrived had been upgraded to the largest room on the fourth floor (except the corner room with an ensuite) because we were staying so long, which was fantastic! Siri and Joaquim were charming, kind, and full of intelligent discussion - while Gladys, our maid, was a godsend and made the room look pristine every day! We felt so spoiled and looked after and could barely face leaving. We miss the multigrain croissants still! And the roses on the breakfast table which are from their rooftop garden. :)

Thoughts: a) We booked a "shared bathroom" which made me a bit nervous before arriving - but the 4th floor actually has two shared bathrooms which were mostly free and always clean and well stocked, not a downside at all! b) Our room was directly facing onto Las Ramblas, and while the noise didn't bother me at all (I sleep like a rock) it did wake my mum up once or twice, it's a busy road with lots of traffic 24/7.

Overall, I cannot say enough good things about our time there, and we both hope to return soon!

Spent 2 nights here in early May. No complaints at all! The property is beautifully decorated, well furnished - the beds were great, hospitality excellent and the breakfast was nice - delicious croissants!

Though you might not be right smack in the Gothic quarter, the location is great as it takes u slightly out of the tourist centre - there are some great tapas places within reach like Quimet y Quimet as well as lolita tapas.

Would definetely recommend to everyone :)

Very friendly hosts, knowledgable and helpful. Comfortable beds, security good. Slightly out of centre, but close to two metro lines so easy access to other parts of city. Simple but tasty and excellent quality continental breakfast. I would happily stay again.

Room Tip: Rooms at rear are quieter, as on a main road, but up on 4th floor, so road noise will only trouble t...

I probably should not write this review, as it will make it harder for us to get a room next time we are in Barcelona... But Casa de Billy IS a great little B&B very centrally located in Barcelona. The rooms are spotless clean, the beds good, and the hospitality very friendly and personal.
We had the pleasure of Siri who knew a lot about sights, shops, restaurants, public transportation etc. etc. and he was an Expert in making you feel a home. I have seen people complaint about the breakfast. It is clearly stated in their material, that you get a CONTINENTAL breakfast - that does NOT include eggs, bacon, sausages, fried potatoes, steaks, cornflakes etc. etc. The breakfast consists of a (very nice) cop of coffee or tea, a wholemeal croissant and freshly sqeezed orange juice. Very simple, but very good quality.

Really there is nothing you can say against this place. Sweet atmosphere. Clean. Good internet for business travellers. Nice simple breakfast (love the croissants!!). Helpful staff (staff seems so impersonal here...). A little out of the city, but nice and quiet and only a short stroll up the road.
