“Very good place to stay....”
Reviewed February 21, 2013

The place is close to the metro station (5 min), there is a bus station right in front of the entrance.
At about 5 min away of walking you can take the one of the buses that makes the tour of the city.
Is is very clean and beautiful and the hostess was very polite and tell us usefull information about the city.
It is a place where you want to return .

We are not fussy travelers, we really only need a clean, inexpensive place to stay. Cassanova filled the bill perfectly! Our hostess was extremely helpful and accommodating, a good range of options for breakfast, basic, but nutritional and filling. Well located in the city (near the Metro), making getting around a breeze. We were there Oct 15th, 16th & 17th 2012, and would stay there again in a heartbeat.

Some B&B's make you feel like you're a guest of the family: they check in on you multiple times a day, they serve you breakfast, you share the bathroom with hosts ...

BBB Casanova Guest House is not one of those B&Bs. What you get is a private room with a lock, air-conditioning, and really clean shared spaces.

There are 5 rooms, for a total capacity of 9 guests. 4 rooms are arranged along the hallway to the shared bathrooms and kitchen, and the fifth leads directly off of the breakfast/living room. Each room is individually locked and has air-conditioning. The rooms are separated by french doors, however, which are not ideal for keeping out sound and light; I'm an extremely light sleeper and occasionally needed to use my earplugs to deal with folks wandering the hall.

The shared spaces are definitely the highlight for this B&B: the 2 shared bathrooms are pretty amazing when you consider that 9 people are sharing them; I wondered at times whether they were getting cleaned twice a day! And the living room has a cute sitting nook for watching the street or relaxing with a book. It's also, incidentally, where the wifi antenna is located; I didn't have any problems with getting signal from my room.

Breakfast is your standard self-serve "continental" breakfast: cereal/muesli, yogurt, juice, coffee, bread, etc. One highlight is that self-serve means it's available at 4 AM when if your appetite arrives with jetlag.

Booking and checkin was pretty easy; Annereik (spelling?) lives onsite, but I only saw her once, during checkin. She hung around for an extra hour when we got lost getting to the B&B, and still took the time to give us a map and an introduction to the city.

One last thing to note: its location. Although it *is* only 1 block away from Avinguda Diagonal, that's not really super helpful for seeing the city: what really matters is being close to the subway. Unfortunately, BBB Casanova Guest House is located about 6 minutes away from the closest stop (Hospital Clinic), which isn't on the most convenient subway line. To save yourself some transfers, you really want to walk to the next closest (Diagonal), which is more like a 15 minute walk away. Of course, by the time you walk out to the next stop, you're already in the midst of Gaudi buildings ...
