“check what you have booked”
Reviewed September 9, 2013

Booked this guesthouse online, mainly due to the description saying it is a traditional spanish apartment and that all the rooms had access to the balcony/terrace....which they do but not from the actual rooms other than the top 2 most expensive rooms. When we were shown to our room the window looked out on to a wall approx 2 feet from the window. The maid/housekeepers looked very concerned however did not speak English, which yes I should speak Spanish, but this is an international hotel. I was put on the phone to the very terse owner who told me I hadn't booked a room with a balcony and none were available. In the night we put on the aircon- which was very loud and then later on bits of ice started dropping out of it. The following morning the aircon start spraying water across the room, and flooded the floor. I see this problem was reported by someone else on trip advisor so they must have been aware and not fixed it. on the second night me manage to get a room with a view which was lovely however was charged 36 euros for this when on hotels.com this would only have been another 16 euros. The rest of the apt was lovely and the breakfast nice, clean room etc. I would not however recommend the Guesthouse due to the poor way in which we were treated.

I love here so much!! Beautiful and specious sleeping room and dining room!!! Although the housekeeper cannot speak any English, but it doesn't really matter, she is so lovely and friendly, always smiling, makes me feel so welcome!!! Everything is so clean, no dust at all, nice breakfast and fresh egg served directly by request, wish I can stay here longer!!!

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!
