Bed and Beach Barcelona Guesthouse

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed September 25, 2012

Me and my partner stayed here for a week. This is an amazing place to stay. You share a bathroom and kitchen but there is only three rooms on the floor so it never feels crowded when you need to use either the bathroom or kitchen. The terrace is amazing to sit and relax after a long day site seeing and the beach is a 5 min walk. The host go out of their way to help with all the inside knowledge on Barcelona. Also the hire bikes for much cheaper than anywhere else in Barcelona. Don't let the location put you off a buss at the end of the street goes straight to the city. All up an amazing place to stay and don't hesitate booking it.

we stayed 3 nights in bed and beach.
and overall it was a very good experience.
the room was clean , with our own little kitchen.
the shower was excellent.
the area is very quiet ,so we had good nights sleep.

the only thing is that the location is about 15 minuets by bus from city center,
for us it wasn't a big deal as we like to walk a lot.

on the other side you are right around the beach , which is cool.

all in all this is a great place in very reasonable price.

Room Tip: if you don't go by taxi from the airport, choose to use the aerobus and then the 41 line that w...

Some information from the past is obsolete.
First of all - it is not bed and breakfast because this B&B does not serve any breakfast. You get a morning coffee, that's all.
Pluses:
- rooms are nice, we have got no. 1 with own bathroom
- rooms are clean and cleaned regular by 2 helpers (Philippines?)
- staff speaks English fluently and gives good tourist tips
- location is really good - 6 minutes from the nearest beach and many options to get the city by bus or metro (underground) - 10 routes tickets costs 9,5€ and is valid for all types of vehicles.
- car left on the street was ignored by criminals (we believe they are in Barcelona ;))
- price - 55€ per day in high season
- commonly used terrace
Minuses:
- odd request - do not use your shoes in the room and kitchen area
- 20€ caution returned on check-out - why?
- 'paper walls' - it is possible to hear what is going on in the whole house; fortunately, our mates were very quiet

Recommended place, friendly, clean and stylish.

Room Tip: Some rooms are without window and with shared bathroom. Some not ;)

Not the most inspiring place from the outside - a multi level building with no apparent signage on a quiet side street.

Despite the initial reservations we were given a warm welcome from Alfredo and Carolina plus some good advice on Barca.

Rooms are basic affairs but very clean. Hot showers are a hit and affair and linen and towels weren't changed during our four night stay.

This isn't The Hyatt by any stretch, but the location is great for the beach area, plus it offers a much cheaper alternative to the pricey hotels.

Great for travellers, not so for the high maintenance tourist.

We stayed six nights (in August) in two different rooms that had very effective air-conditioning which were both clean and cozy. The entire house was clean, comfortable, and decorated from Ikea. In addition, there is a rooftop terrace with great views that we used everyday. The staff (Alberto, Carolina, Patricia, and Maria) was extremely friendly and helpful. Their advice enhanced our visit and we enjoyed simply talking to them about their experiences and perspectives.

The house is a 5-minute walk from the beach and close to two bus lines, which bring you right into the city center or to the Barceloneta district or to sights like Sagrada Familia or Parc Güell. Also, the Metro stop is in walking distance, as is a "locals only" rambla with many restaurants and ice cream shops and the best horchata. The Bed and Beach’s neighborhood is safe and easy to navigate and because of its ideal location, facilitates combining the beach-vacation with the city-vacation. We highly recommend Barcelona Bed and Beach!

Room Tip: Try to book Room #1 on the second floor. It is a double occupancy room with its own bathroom and sm...

Stayed 4 nights in Barca recently in Bed and Beach . Staff were very helpful and friendly .
Room was clean and functional with good air conditioning . Nothing fancy - no television or frills .No window which personally didnt bother me - saw enough of barca during my time exploring . kitchen area also clean with fridge,microwave and storage area for each guest . the bathroom shower could have been a little more powerful but was still ok .
Very short walk to beach and also very close to shopping centre and cineplex and some cafes .
overall a very good experience and great value at a price which is very hard to find in barca .
hotels in barca are ridiculously overpriced and this is a welcome alternative .
the location on you first time to try and find may be a little confusing but once you get your bearings is fine . google maps on smartphone guided me initially !
so to sum up , if you want a reasonably priced ,safe ,clean place to stay in barca near beach ,this is the place for you

We stayed three nights in a really lovely room with air-conditioning on the third floor of the house - it was soooo nice: the whole place felt like being at friends' place - it was clean, comfortable, nicely decorated, the kitchen was fully equipped (we had our own storage space there - even in the fridge) and the staff was so friendly and helpful that it really felt like being with friends. (They allowed us to use our room until 7pm on the last day for free.) There's a nice terrace on the roof that one can use until 10pm. The beach is a 5-minute walk away, two bus lines, which bring you right into the city centre or to important sights like sagrada familia and parc güell, have their stops just around the corner, the Metro is nearby as well and in the neighbourhood there's a cute, down-to-earth and not-touristy "rambla" with nice restaurants and ice cream parlours.
It's a really great place to stay, as it makes it very easy to combine the beach-holiday with the city-trip-holiday, because of its' location and feel - and in the evening you come home to a quiet, clean and friendly place. We can only recommend this place!!

Room Tip: The room next to ours had no window (what seems to be common in Barcelona), so insist on a room with...
