We stayed here 27th July for 2 nights (myself and 2 teenagers), the place is spotlessly clean. Our room was immaculate, beautiful bedding, spotless bathroom, they even provided toothbrushes, razors etc incase you had forgotten your own. Our room overlooked the beautiful terrace which is open until 10.00pm, where you are welcome to sit and chill out or even eat snacks you have bought for your supper. The hot drinks machine is open until 11pm another welcome extra.
Beatriz and two guys looked after us during our stay and were extremely helpful with locations of the sights and suggestions of where to eat in the area. The best hosts we have ever had anywhere.
Breakfast is very nice indeed, juice, hot drinks, 3 different breads, marg, jams, honey, 3 different pastries, ample fresh fruit. Perfect start to the day and they leave out the uneaten pastries(covered) incase you want these later in the day. We had them for supper on the terrace.
I cannot reccomend this accomodation enough. it was clean, comfortable, affordable and the staff were very helpful and welcoming. They also have someone on site 24hrs a day.

We really enjoyed our stay at the Blanc Guesthouse. We felt welcomed and looked after from the first exchange of emails. We arrived by plane, took the aerobus, then metro to Diagonal and then after a short walk we had arrived. The inside was simple and clean, quiet and cool away from the bustle of the city. We loved our room, beautifully decorated with a comfy bed and lovely ensuite. It was warm but the powerful ceiling fan did the job of keeping the room at a good temperature.

We loved the breakfast - the pastries were wonderful, different every day and more than enough to keep us going until lunch time and eating on the terrace was a joy in the morning. Having coffee available all day was great; maybe not the best coffee but welcomed anyway.

The location was ideal for us - all of Barcelona was easily accessible either by walking or a couple of stops on the metro, the prices being much more reasonable than London ones; but we felt were were far enough from the tourist areas to enjoy city life without the crowds.

The only downside of our stay was outside noise with the bins being collected and roads cleaned in the early hours. This did not spoil our stay as it what you expect with a central city location.

my mummy, 9 year old sister and i stayed at blanc guesthouse and really liked it. the staff (especially the two guys who seemed to be there more in the afternoons/weekend) were really welcoming, friendly and accomodating. the location, as others said is about 10/15 minute walk from the metro , but it is in a very nice area close to passeig de gràcia and rambla de catalunya. you can however, get buses from plaça de catalunya, barceloneta etc that stop 2/3 minute walk from the guesthouse. if i was staying with friends i would probably have liked to stay somewhere a bit more lively such as el born, but this is a perfect place to stay with young children as it is fairly quiet in the evenings. the amount of lovely places to eat is however reduced.

the room itself was lovely and smelt really really nice! everything was spotless and clean. the beds were very very comfy. yes, it might be a little bit noisy at night and early morning, especially if you sleep in the bedroom close to reception and the coffee machine, but it was a quiet stay overall. :)

the breakfast was adequate, nothing fancy (yes, no ham or cheese) but the pastries were delicious and to be honest there was enough variety to keep us hungry free until lunch time. i just wish they had nice bread (basic white loaf sliced bread that you buy in a pack in the supermarket, in spain, where they have lovely bread is really not acceptable) plus nice butter, rather than cheap margarine spread.

the big issue for me with this room, was the lack of air conditioning. in mid july it gets REALLY hot in the city, and really hot in the room. the room has a ceiling fan, which keeps the room cooler during the day, but this is really really noisy at night and we were unable to sleep with the fan on. i was however, also unable to sleep without waking up 10 times as it was far too hot overnight.

last but not least, the internet wireless service was excellent and we had no problem getting a signal.

overall, we were sad to leave and i would recommend this lovely guesthouse to all our friends.

I spent 4 nights at the Blanc Guesthouse in a room with a private bathroom. I became very sick and Beatrice, Gorgi and Jose took very good care of me. They are great hosts, eager to help you with anything you need.The location is great on a very trendy street, which comes alive at night.
The good: clean, great owners, nice patio to relax on, modern rooms, free Wifi, come and go as you please, great showers
The bad: no English television channels, uncomfortable beds, simple breakfast

I really liked my stay at Blanc Guesthouse. The room was very modern, with a very comfortable bed.
There was no air conditioning in the room but a very powerful fan and that was enough.
We had breakfast in the terrace where you can enjoy the sunshine and have coffee also during the day. Coffee is not great and it comes from a machine, and this was the low point for me.
Beatriz was very helpful, gave us some good tips to see the city and spoke excellent English.
We choose the room with the shared bathroom and I have to say this was clean and modern, so I was happy with the choice.
The B&B is located on a less touristy spot which makes it perfect as it is close to Passeig de Gracia (the fashion and elegant street) but at the same time you can still see the locals having a coffee and reading the newspaper in the cafes nearby the B&B.
I read in some reviews that people complained about the noise but I did not hear anything at all, the window was double-glazed.
Very good value for money and would come back there.

We were a couple stayed in Rm 6 with the private bath for 3 nights and 1 night in Rm11 w/o the bath. The rooms were cleaned. Breakfast was simple but enough! Staff was friendly. Right outside rm 6 is the coffee machine, so from time to time we could hear the machine running, esp in the morning, but good thing is. Location wise, it is not as central as we wanted, but there is bus station just less than 5min walk from the B&B, so we had no trouble getting around Barcelona.

Tip: If you are coming from BCN, don't even bother to take the metro (too many line change). We used Aerocity (the door to door shulttle service), and it only cost <40euro round trip for 2 people. But for our outbound, we had issue with the shuttle 'cuz they had a vehicle failure and they asked us to wait 30min for the next one. We decided to take the taxi instead, which cost about 25euro.

We were in a double room with private bath located in the front of the building and we were stunned by the soundproofing quality of the massive windows. The bathroom was clean and modern and the overall facility is very well kept and welcoming.

We've often been to BCN and rarely have we found a B&B or hotel with such a lovely private backside terrace. It is perfect to have your breakfast in the morning and make a plan for the day ahead.

Our hostess was great and tending to our every need. Breakfast was very complete : fresh fruits, yogurts, juices, croissants, danishes, bread,... There a big automatic coffee machine available all day long. You can get all sorts of coffee, hot chocolate, latte... Unfortunately for me, every coffee was a bit to sweet for my taste, even when I selected the plain black coffee. Don't let this stop you from going to Blanc Guesthouse, you'll find plenty of hardcore coffee shops around.

This part of Eixample is quiet and perfect if you want to wonder away from the crowds. Blanc Guesthouse is a great hub to explore the North side Avinguda Diagonal on foot. You'll find great restaurants and a lively neighborhood life.

Finally, pictures on the website are very accurate, the place is welcoming and spotless!

Room Tip: If you need a WIFI in your room, ask for a room in the back, the signal is much better.
