“I have travelled a lot, but definitively this is the best B&B I have ever been!!”
Reviewed September 24, 2011

The location is the best place in Barcelona.
You can go walking eveywhere:
To the beach,The cathedral,museo Picasso,Las Ramblas,Ciutadella park....in Born ,is full of very nice restaurants and small cafeterias,bars...
The House is like the photos,very nice and have a very good atmosphere,and very,very clean.
We enjoyed the breakfast very much because we felt like a family with Pablo and Anna.
They are both really nice and helpfull.
For me ,the perfect host.
I would highly recommend this B&B.
I come often to Barcelona but,from now that I know this place,I will always come back because,here I really felt relax,like at Home.

Stayed with Pablo and Anna for 2 nights and money can´t buy the warmth and great welcome we were given! Location is fab right in the heart of Born, with easy access to metros. There´s great tapas all round the area...and don´t worry if you don´t know where to go as Pablo will suggest some great little hidden gemms. I´d come back in a flash. We came for La Merce festival in September and this is perfect to enjoy the festival!
