Booked to stay at circa 1905 for surprise 40th for my partner and wow what a good call that was! Has to be the best hotel I have ever stayed in. It was like living in your own Barcelona apartment, so well thought out, pure genious - the only thing that made it feel like staying in a 'normal' hotel were the other guests that joined you for breakfast! Perfect for a romantic, luxury break - loved, loved, loved it!!

I chose Circa 1905 for my partner's birthday and was not disappointed by the hotel. The staff could not have been more helpful to make our stay enjoyable and the hotel is full of character and in a convenient and good location.
If you are looking for accommodation that is individual, clean and comfortable I would recommend Circa 1905.

We loved everything about this elegant and sylish hotel/B&B. We had a room giving on to the shared terrace and interior garden which was very quiet. The rooms are elegantly furnished and are spotless. The staff were exceptionally helpful and friendly. We felt more like house guests than clients. The option to take our breakfast to our room and sit looking on to the terrace was much appreciated as were the tea and coffee making facilities, after a hard day's sight-seeing. The location is excellent and everything is within walking distance for the fit, otherwise the metro is on the doorstep and taxis are reasonable.

The location of the hotel is simply fantastic. Quiet street between Rambla de Catalunya with plenty of restaurants and bars and Passeig the Gracia. Metro station is just around the corner. Sagrada Familia and Placa de Catalunya are in walking distance.

The hotel has only couple rooms what makes it very nice and cozy. All arranged in style of bourgeois residence from the dawn of XX century. Our room had proper size, very high ceiling and side view to Casa Mila. The balcony door had additional shutters which isolated light and street noise. We could get very good sleep, especially that the bed was big and comfortable. The room was clean - tested! We have been running barefoot on the stone floor. :)

Bathroom with (rain) shower has a good, modern equipment from known manufacturers. The only small negative contrast were the walls. In the bathroom I would expect marble/tiles at least behind the sink and in the shower. Instead, the walls are covered only by water-proof paint. Looks kinda cheap.

Breakfast is served in the lobby arranged as romantic living room. Food was tasty. Cafe, tea and mineral water are available for guest around the clock.

The stuff was very friendly, not formal and ready for help (especially Mamen - thank you!).

Great stay! 100% recommendation!

Room Tip: Choose room with balcony. Cafe and Casa Mila view in the evening - priceless.

Cica 1905 was a great find for us! As owners of a Michelin recommended Boutique bed and breakfast in Glasgow Scotland we know how difficult it is to create the atmosphere and maintain the standards of this amazing place. Great location, spotless and lovely service. The signage is discrete revealing a hidden gem. We will recommend and return.

Hotel Circa 1905 is a small boutique hotel located in one of the best locations in Barcelona city just minutes away from the best shops, restaurants and transport links. We paid for a room with a balcony but were upgraded free of charge to a room with a terrace...a lovely gesture that you just wouldn't get at most hotels regardless of whether they were not particularly busy at this time of year. The room was a good size and for once the beds were extremely comfortable..!! Breakfast was included in the price and free Nespresso coffee, tea and water was available for you to help yourself. The staff were extremely pleasant and helpful. I think the hotel was great value for money and would recommend it for your trip to Barcelona.

Room Tip: Room 8. It was close to the dining area where you could place breakfast on a tray and return to eat...
