“A must experience for every family or couple.”
Reviewed May 13, 2013

I stayed in this with my DH on last day of our Europe trip. It is a lovely old fashioned house of 1920.
Atmosphere and place: It is an old house and will fascinate you from its decor. The old fashioned wooden lifts, the light switches,grand furniture, the old shower on the terrace with view of Barcelona, the chandeliers etc . and its not at all crowded.The place will make u feel like u r a rich old king and queen for a day :)

Rooms: our room was neat and clean with the street view.Electricity points were less.The bathroom was shared but we just stayed for a day and may be a coincidence that it was always free when we needed it. In spite of being shared, it was kept neat and clean. Showers were powerful. no hair dryer though.
A relaxed evening at terrace or balcony with your dear ones is something to vouch for.

service and staff: all we just met was a kind caretaker who only knew Spanish. so English was a bit problem but sign language worked just well.

Breakfast: breakfast included veg, nonveg, vegan options. we are vegetarians and satisfied with the variety and taste.

Connectivity: The metro station is just walking distance from the place, so offers a broad time frame for a traveler to visit places. we returned late night and it was quite safe.

This place might have some little flaws but this is a lovely experience to have.Attached some photos as well. and will definitely recommend every family or couple to stay here. U'll cherish the memories of this place even when u are back home.

Room Tip: Choose the room which has a bathroom attached in it.

During booking friendly staff. Never saw anyone during my stay except housekeeping staff.
Breakfast was good.
Glad we choose a room with bathroom in stead of sharing the bathroom.
There was only one electricity point in the room, so I had to change the smart phones for charging in the middle of the night.
City-train station is nearby. You can use the metro tickets.
I have no complaints, but will not recommend this B&B.

Room Tip: Choose a room with bathroom in stead off sharing the bathroom.

A good and slightly quirky option for a stay in Barcelona. North of the city center but easy to access using the Metro it is the sixth floor of an apartment block. There is a wonderfully old fashioned lift if you don't fancy the 6 flights of stairs. Lots of beautiful dark wood and chandeliers it feels more like someones home than a hotel. Run by 2 very helpful house keepers who provide breakfast in an ornate dinning room or on the terrace overlooking the hills to the north. The Park Guell is a really interesting 20 minute walk away. Recommended.

One of the most original places i've stayed in. If you are interested in a home-like atmosphere with interesting decoration this is for you. The neighbourhood was also nice, a few km from the tourist attractions.

I stayed here in May for 7 days with my boyfriend (not consecutively as we visited sitges and cadacques too) but I loved it. Was it a 5 star hotel? no. but it felt like home, like what it would have been like if we lived in beautiful Barcelona. The maid, Susie (I hope the spelling is right) spoke absolutely no english but she was so pleasant we didn't mind. we just spoke to her with very broken spanish (right out of the dictionary!) and gestures. and we conversed pretty well- so I wouldn't worry unless you were the super impatient type. we stayed in every room I think, and the one upstairs (the red room) was gooooorgeous, looking out to the big balcony and the beautiful view.

The breakfast is limited (toast, cereal, eggs cooked to your liking and cold hams/salami) if you are used to hotel buffets, but as barcelona is such an amazing place to eat around in, I don't think it would be a problem. if it is warm, you can eat on the first floor (of casa con estilo, not the building obviously) balcony too, which is lovely! I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.

Room Tip: ask for the red room upstairs if it's available, it's beautiful!

Not well-marked on the street outside, you travel up a tight old world elevator to the 6th floor. This place is a quaint old world apartment with bulky ornate furniture and a huge chandelier in the breakfast room. If you get there before others, you can enjoy your food on the balcony, The food was basic but adequate, with coffee, juice, yogurt, some kind of cake, toast, and various hams and cheeses. They will fix you eggs if you ask. The lady we dealt with mostly spoke Spanish (as did my traveling partner) but this lady wasn't as educated or helpful as some have suggested here. Biggest problem was our air conditioner. If you leave your room in August, leave it on. It took 2 hours (and I do not exaggerate) to cool the room down at night (and we had no windows). Another issue was plugs for all the electronics stuff we modern travelers seem to need (camera, cell phones, and I have a sleep machine). There is ONE plug in the room. You can't even get to the nightstand lamp plugs. They were behind a wooden cover. It was exciting to see a computer with internet connection in a separate room. Unfortunately, it didn't work. Every day same story: "a technician is coming." We got back at midnight our first night and the key would not work despite two college-educated people trying to figure it out. It needs to be in a strange position. Ask before you leave. We stayed four days. They made the room up nicely each night but one day our iPhone cord got caught up in the maid's mop. We had to wake her again at midnight. She said she didn't know which room it went to. The shared bathroom wasn't much of an issue. Only had to wait shortly once. Bottom line: reasonable price, nice view, close to the underground train which takes you in 10 minutes to the action, nice non-hotel experience, but definitely 3 stars.

Enjoyed our stay here. We were two girls travelling together and everything was comfortable for us - some problems with the airconditioning though as it was very noisy and not overly effective either. Someone came in every day to tidy the room, and not just make the bed, but folded everything beautifully and saw to its upkeep when we were busy exploring Barcelona. Breakfast was ok, only hot food available were eggs, and bread was a little repetitive - choice of two cereals and orange juice out of a bottle. All in all, recommendable though - location was good and easy to get everywhere. Friendly staff, but good we spoke Spanish as I don't know if their English was top-notch. Computer for everyone's use. Stay here for a mid-range, no frills comfortable stay.
