“a good choice!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 10, 2013

We stayed at Bed and Beach last week for 3 nights and were really happy with it. It is not very obvious from the outside that it is a hotel, so we walked right past, however we had only got a few doors down when the owner stuck her head out the door to shout us back, she must have hear our loud wheely cases! She was very friendly and welcoming, explaining about the city and best way of getting around.
Our room was an ensuite, small but very clean and bright. we shared a kitchen with another 2 rooms, this was great as it meant we could buy food for breakfast and keep it in the fridge, saving a bit of money on eating out. The hotel was quiet, we only met one other couple, even though it was fully booked. This made for a nice and peaceful stay.
They have a roof terrace, which was a lovely place to sit and have a quiet drink at night, looking at the city at night.
We would definitely stay here again, it had the feel of an apartment rather than an impersonal hotel. It was close to the beach and we managed to walk back from the city centre.

Room Tip: Some of the rooms have a shared bathroom, however on our floor only 2 of the rooms shared the bathro...

Great place very close to the beach. The staff was super-friendly and helpful, which made the stay very enjoyable. The bus connection to the city centre was very good, and a taxi would cost you not more than 5-6 euros.

The rooftop terrace is great, and is a great place to enjoy your breakfast or a cold beer after a long day at the beach.

The room was equipped with comfortable beds and good A/C, and the common areas were nice and clean.

When I booked this guesthouse I didn't realise that I were to share bathroom facilities with other visitors, which made me a little apprehensive. I read in the reviews below that there are en suite rooms, but when I arrived the place was fully booked.

The lack of en suite bathroom was more than compensated for by the excellent friendly service offered by the hosts, the well equipped kitchen, the comfortable beds in the otherwise rather basic room and, last but not least, by the lovely rooftop terrace, which is fitted with a number of tables and benches (it doesn't have a light and becomes difficult to use/navigate when it gets dark). Packs of instant coffee are available for free in the kitchen and there is decent wifi internet access.

The one thing I would improve from my experience would be the lack of windows and any natural light in my room - I can see in the pictures here that the other rooms did have windows.

I would happily return to Bed and Beach Barcelona Guesthouse in the future.

We are so glad to have found this particular guesthouse on our travels through Spain. We had booked this online on the go and couldn't have been happier with our choice. The location was fabulous with the beach a 5 minute walk away, the bus stop at the end of the street and supermarket on the next corner. All the facilities of the marina only a 10 minute walk away. As well as the bed being really comfortable and having the little kitchen to prepare food the warm and helpful greeting from the host Alberto was much appreciated. A super clean and well run guesthouse. Thanks for a great stay.

The place lived up to the reviews - very clean and lovely people. Loved the friendly recommendations - the owner took plenty of time to chat with us and explain how to get around/what to see. We really appreciated how nice they were.

Liked the way they had decorated the place, appreciated having a fridge as it was so nice to make simple dinners. We would come back & stay again.

(Three month trip of Europe, this was in our top 10 accommodation picks! Thank you!)

I booked Bed and Beach because the reviews were wonderful and the location looked like it was right on the beach. The price almost seemed too good to be true . . . but we had no surprises upon check-in! We were a group of three, and we all really needed a break from reality and some quality beach time. We spent three full days (in May) sitting on the beach and then heading into town in the evenings for tapas and sangria. This location really is perfect for that sort of laid back holiday in Barcelona. The bus stop is right outside of the front door, and the nearest metro stop is about 10 minutes walk from the B&B. The owners of the place are very helpful to provide maps and travel information upon request. They even had a proper hairdryer in the room for me so that I didn't have to cram my own into a little backpack. There is also a large Info. center at the center of the city (the Catalunya metro/bus stop) that was very helpful.

The 4-person en suite we stayed in was very clean and tastefully decorated. While we didn't really use the roof-top terrace, we did check it out, and it was lovely! I will book this place again next time we visit Barcelona!

After a long day driving and being the first time we were in Barcelona, we were welcomed by Bed&Beach staff, Alberto. He explained how to go around in Barcelona, where to buy groceries or the best bakery around. He then showed us our room, which we fell in love with. It was bright and sunny and we loved the simple and natural decoration. We shared a bathroom and kitchen and everything was very clean during our stay. There was also a shared terrace for all the guesthouse and they even provided us with candles and blankets in case we wanted to stay there when it was getting dark and chilly (we stayed there in march)
After a couple of weeks of heavy traveling, we needed some rest and we couldn't have been happier.

Room Tip: Our room was facing the front facade, which was very sunny.
