Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed January 10, 2014

Where do I start? Stayed 7 nights in January and it was perfect. Great service from the host Siri, who is a great guy, very kind and helpful.I felt welcome and comfortable from the second I entered "the casa". Fantastic location, could not believe the high level of quality for the total cost. Recommend 100%!

We spent 4 nights here in August. We loved it. We stayed on the first floor with balcony and ensuite. Fantastic location, reasonably priced, but the other wonderful asset is Siri! His knowledge and tips of where to eat, which flamenco show was the best (without the tourist ripoff) was terrific. Sangria, sand, shops, sagrada familia and sun - we will come back and stay longer. The breakfast was great, and Siri also took care of laundry - very much appreciated after travelling for a couple of weeks. Thanks Casa Di Billy.

We stayed here for 5 days prior to taking our Transatlantic cruise back to US. This B & B is VERY conveniently located on a main street and walking distance to metro stop....just 2 short blocks. The gigantic whole grain croissant is very yummy and the coffee and juice hits the spot to get you going to start your day of sightseeing, eating Tapas and more sightseeing and more Tapas. We definitely will return here.... and Siri is very kind and helpful!!

We spent 7 nights at Casa de Billy and it was a very comfortable and pleasant stay! We were staying on the first floor as we had requested an ensuite room. The room was large and extremely clean, the bed comfortable and all necessities were provided.
Our host, Siri was lovely and he was helpful providing tips about the city and able to help out with every requests.
Casa de Billy is also very well located in a safe area at about 15 minutes walk to La Rambla, and close to 2 metro stations. From this point you can navigate easily every where. one other good point, It is only 3 blocks away from the aerobus pick up point that will take you to the airport.

One negative side: the breakfast. It is very basic with 1 croissant, orange juice and coffee. I would expect more from this accommodation as it is a high scale B&B.

Overall a very pleasant stay in the marvellous city of Barcelona!

Room Tip: First floor was super quiet. The room are spacious and a bit more expensive as you can get an ensuit...

We spent 6 nights here and every bit was awesome. Very handy location with regular busses running outside the door. Or a 20 minute walk to la Rambla . Very helpful and friendly hosts. Just a croissant for breakfast but it was a social occasion with the other guests. We didn't get an ensuite room but had access to 2 bathrooms so never an issue. Immaculately made rooms every day. Large choice of restaurants within 5 minutes. Reasonably priced for Barcelona. Only downside was paying by cash only.

We spent two nights in Barcelona's Casa de Billy at the end of a cruise and were very pleased. We were on the 5th floor of a very well kept 100 year old apartment building. We had a private bathroom and access to a spacious lounge, full kitchen and a terrace. The location was great, two blocks from plaza Espanya, where the Aerobus stops, and an easy walk to plaza Catalunya and las Ramblas. Joaquin was very accommodating and helpful. There are restaurants and small grocery stores right in the neighborhood. When ( not if ) we go back to Barcelona, we will definitely stay at Casa de Billy again.

If you're arriving by plane, the first stop for the Aerobus is Placa d'Espanya. From there, it's only 3 blocks to the apartment. Just remember that it's also the last stop back to the airport, so the bus gets busy for the return journey.
The apartment itself is in an apartment block on Gran Via which is a very busy street for traffic, both during the day and at night. As previous reviewers have said, the road noise is quite high. As you can't specify which room you want when booking it is worthwhile taking earplugs if you think the noise will keep you awake.
We were in the 'Standard' apartment on floor 1. The 'Superior' apartment is higher up.
Our bedroom was at the front, facing onto Gran Via. As stated during the booking process, an En Suite does not necessarily mean that your bathroom will be attached to your bedroom, though there are rooms that do have it. Ours was just across the corridor and was solely for our use. Bathrobes were supplied.
As we were there at the end of October, the AC units were not required, so I can't comment on these.
The bedroom at the rear of the apartment has it's own bathroom and has none of the traffic noise, but the bedroom door opens onto the dining room where guests eat their breakfast.
Breakfast is a simple affair, a croissant with butter and jam, tea or coffee and orange juice. This is also explained during the booking process.
You do have the free run of the kitchen though. You can take extra food in if you wish and there is a large refrigerator in the kitchen if you require it.
The whole place is kept very clean and tidy by Siri, who runs the apartment flawlessly. On our arrival he checked us in, showed us around and sat with us with a map pointing out the places to visit and the easiest ways to get there.
La Rambla is walkable in about 30 minutes, but the Metro is also a cheap and easy option. There are 2 Metro stations close by.
The apartment is far enough from the city centre to avoid the typical tourist restaurants with their below par food and increased prices. Use the free wifi in the apartment with your Tripadvisor app to search for restaurants.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Casa de Billy and would highly recommend it.
Hopefully this review explains things clearly, so you can make an informed decision for your booking.
The only thing stopping the 5 star rating for me is the road noise, but I guess that's something you'd have in most places when you have a front bedroom in such a busy city as Barcelona.
