“GOOD VALUE FOR MONEY”
Reviewed May 15, 2010

We have spent one week at casa and have booked via internet.Casa con estilo is situated on the 6th floor in the block of flats on Carrer de Balmes, very close to the metro station el Putxtet of metro L7 line. There is small and very primitive elevator in the vestibule which takes you up; we got a buch of keys and could leave and come at any time.There are 2 terraces (the lower one takes you from the dining room, the other is one floor higher, where you can sunbathe, free use of internet in the corner and wireless internet access in the rooms;we stayed at Audrey room which is the only one with its own "en-suite" bathroom. The room is big enough for 2 (hotel doesn't offer any extra beds in it).On the other site I read that staff doesn't let any kids,but there were 2 families during our stay...Talking about the staff, nobody speaks a word english, prepare to use your own body language...there were 2 very friendly ladies, available for any wishes,unfortunatelly I could't use my knowledge of english, german and italian neither.
Breakfast was every morning the same; jam,butter,aprox.5-6 pieces of different cheese,orange juice,tea, coffie, milk, one sort of cake and bread,which was defrosted (first morning happend we got frosted bread, because the houselady didn't defrost enough) - in some forum I read about every mornig fresh bread...a big lie!
Neverthless, I would recommed the hotel to all Barcelona's visitors,who wish to stay out of city center, where you can become very easly a vicitm of the pickpocket,which happend to me as well, right after getting of the train from airport. If there are any questions about casa con estilo and sights of Barcelona,don't hasitate to contact me.

Have a nice stay in Barca and hasta luego!!

My wife and I had the best vacation ever! We stood here for 3 nights, and the breakfast was delicious! Recently-cooked bread, brownies and fruits, fruit juice and coffee (as many as we wanted, despite what some people say).
We really enjoyed our stay, it was just as described and the large terrace was great (specially at sunset).
We will definitely come back again!

I have never stayed in a hotel where you are only allowed one cup of coffee with a very mean breakfast - no cereal, no cooked breakfast, no cooked meats. No signing when you get here to say its on the sixth floor and no indication of when you arrive of what you need to do when you arrive. For the price we paid its rubbish!

We stayed at the Casa con Estilo in October this year. The description of it being a typical Spanish house is correct. The hotel is situated on the 6th floor. When we arrived the elevator was out of order, (not the first time this year). Our suuitcases where taken in the staff elevator, but we were expected to climb all 127 stairs everyday and evening of our stay. Definatley not reccomended for anyone less than fit. None of the staff spoke English. No water in the rooms. The Dining roon has one table which you share with other guests. There is a communial balcony, but there are no views as it has high hedges and is also very small. Breakfast is very basic. The hotel is on the main Balmes Rd which is noisy all night. It is close to the Trainline, about 100 yds. We did not find any entertainment in the area. The market square mentioned in the decription does not have a busy night life with resturants on every corner. Or not the market square within walking distant. Barcelona as usual is brilliant. But this hotel is just a bit far out of the centre. I am sure the staff were very friendly. But the language barrier was quite annoying.

  • Liked — the room was very nice
  • Disliked — the stairs and lack of english being spoken

Casa Con Estilo was the perfect place to stay for a short break in the city. situated in a quiet area, but so quick and easy to la ramblas, few minutes walk from metro, direct to the main station. very pleasant area. got a bit confused with where it was, (take a lift up to the 6th floor with the help of the porter) then knock on the door! the owner was very kind and helpful. room was very clean and tidy, great atmosphere! room was very spacious and comfortable.had breakfast included in the price and this was also very nice, served on the balcony. A definete must!!

Absolutley what we were looking for in a City break. The place was beyond what we expected. My girlfriend and I booked the apartment with the private balcony and it was well worth the extra money. Wonderful service from the Maid. Good location for walking around Barcelona...bear in mind it's not in La Ramblas which suited us just fine. Definitely recommending it to all my friends!

  • Liked — It was quiet and clean, and friendly in a good location
  • Disliked — The struggle with our bags from the underground station!
