Great bed&breakfest. The receptionist Rosa is very nice, thought she doesn't always understand what you ask her in english, so keep trying untill she does. The place is very clean and comfortable. There's wifi and a computer you can use.It's very close to a lot of the main attractions, and the metro station, thought we didn't use it that much because of the good location. The only big downside is that there are 2 bathrooms for 7 rooms, so a lot of the time you have to wait. All in all, great place for a great price.

I had a great stay with Graciela in her home - GH I. She was very warm, hospitable, and friendly, and provided lots of very helpful information in making my way around the area, tips on good tapas places. The location was excellent for sightseeing and for my business needs, which was a bit of a walk, but a pleasant one that I enjoyed given my days were spent sitting in meetings. Breakfasts were basic continental, and quite generous layout of breads, jams, cheeses, boiled eggs, cold cuts, yogurt, fruit, juices, teas, etc. Rooms cleaned regularly. The bathrooms were nice and clean, liquid bath soap provided. The shared bathrooms worked out fine - just have to think of it as staying at home with family.

The only issues were regarding the sounds that carry through walls and the charmingly old but creaky floorboards in the early and late hours. Some guests obviously didn't realize this, so didn't lighten their walk or lower their voices. Also, the room I had adjoined one of the bathrooms, from which one can hear every sound, but assume this would not be an issue for the other rooms.

A very pleasant B&B experience, and one I plan to return to when I return to Barcelona.

Room Tip: Avoid the middle room next to the bathroom in GH I if you are a light sleeper. I could hear every t...

If you don't mind sharing a bathroom this is a great place. Spotlessly clean. We had a huge room. I don't know if they were all that big. Ours was facing a busy street but they have a heavy wood window covering which you can close at night to block out noise. They have free use of a computer in the lobby. A nice breakfast. I would definitely stay there again.

Ally's Guest House 3- My friend and I stayed here for 2 nights. It's very near the Verdaguer Metro station so you can easily go anywhere. The host, Veronica, was very nice and helpful. Our room,Battlo, was lovely and has a balcony. The shared bathrooms were very clean. There's a lot to choose from for the breakfast. The guest house is only a few blocks away from La Sagrada Familia and La Pedrera. I can only think of good words and praises for Ally's Guest House. I would definitely recommend it.

Stayed here fro 2 nights in early October in a lovely twin room in Ally's guesthouse I. The room was fairly basic but comfortable and very clean. There was ample choice for breakfast and it was all tasty. The owner was really helpful and the location is very central is great for walking aound the city or for using public transport - very near a metro station. Had a great time and would definately recommend.

We stayed here two nights because it was a busy weekend in Barcelona and hotel rates were outrageous. We were in the small Calvet room in Ally's Guest House III. The woman who manages it is very nice and kept things very clean. The room was a bit spartan and the bed a little soft, but everything was adequate. The shared bathrooms were clean, but there was a bit of a line to use one of the showers the first morning I was there. Breakfast was basic - mostly some packaged pasteries, yogurt, meats and cheeses. It was a nice place and conveniently located and is a reasonable value.

Ally's guest house was a lovely place to stay; clean, friendly, safe and very well priced. The location is perfect for a city break as we were able to walk to all central locations easily. The owner is very kind and helpful - she gave us a map and helped us with public transport and where to go. Breakfast was plentiful with a good variety (perfect for the price). There are two shared bathrooms, both clean with goods showers. Beds comfortable and our room had a great view. I recommend Ally's with confidence and I would definitely stay there again. Enjoy-Barcelona is great place to visit xx
