Casa de Marcelo is far and away one of my favorite places I have stayed in all of Europe. Marcelo is a delight and he has a gift for hospitality. The location can't be beat. A 5 minute walk to the Port, 10 minutes to the Beach, 10 minutes to La Rambla. We walked everywhere and were able to see all of Barcelona.
The Casa itself is immaculately clean and beautifully decorated. Fluffy towels and big bathrobes make you feel as if you are in a 5 star hotel. Marcelo has a knack with flowers and the live orchids throughout the house are goregous. Tea lights are lit every evening and you feel as if you have entered an oasis.
We were able to use the kitchen to make a meal one evening and Marcelo was kind enough to show us where everything was.
The bathrooms are shared but there are plenty and they are kept so clean you don't seem to even notice that someone else may be using them.
Fresh fruit, juice, and toast with jam helps start your morning off on the right foot.
Marcelo is an excellent host and is quick to give information and tips. He has a heart of gold and one of the highlights of Barcelona for me was getting to know this incredible man.
You can not go wrong at Casa de Marcelo. Book now! Do it, you won't regret it!
Note: there are a couple of flights of stairs up to the Casa. It's completely worth the small climb.
