“Such A Special Place”
Reviewed December 18, 2013

This hotel is not your standard chain hotel...and thank goodness! It is an old, well taken care of, building in the heart of the city...close to so many attractions and great food! Danny and Abel took such good care of us, showing us places to go, giving great directions, etc. They offer a morning breakfast which is great for your first day here until you get the lay of the land. Also helpful, ask them to make arrangements for someone to pick you up at the airport. For 50 Euro, it is so well worth not having to deal with the bus or a taxi.

The hotel itself is old and fascinating with all kinds of neat treasures to look at. They also have guide books laying around that you can borrow. Even though it's old, the hotel is really clean and well maintained. Definitely worth the price compared to other big hotels that are way more expensive than they need to be.

Room Tip: Ask for them to pick you up at the airport! Well worth 50 Euros

we stayed in this hotel after reading the comments here, and it couldnt be better, the location is great, we could walk almost everywhere, in the center of the city,
rooms with a special atmospher, antic furnture, modern bathroom with hairdrier, clean, our room had an access to the terrace, which is fantastic, plants, birds and a small fountain, nothing better to start your day having an excelente breakfast in this terrace.
internet is free, and there is a pc in the reception for the use of the clients, conceted with a printer, and also there was a small labtop if you want to take it to your room, dvds with a dvd driver in each room, there were lots of movies.
the guys there are so helpfull, they helpled us buying the entrance to sagrada familia, and other things, orgnizing your day, where to go, what to see, and where to eat, it was like having a personal guide in Barcelona.
I have read some bad comments talking about this hotel, I cant understand it, I didnt see anything of what they said.
thanks guys to make our stay that lovely, see you in our next trip to Barcelona

Beautiful hotel, excellent service, great location and price. It is located close to the city center, with plenty of possibilities within walking distance. The hotel personnel was very friendly and offered excellent service and advice on city’s attractions. The hotel cleanliness is impeccable and breakfast buffet was complete. I highly recommend this hotel.

Nothing to do with the rest , unique, romantic, with a touch of ellegance, it's really the place for those who wants to escape modern life of the cities, here the romantic and burlesque atmosphere together with the "savoir fair" of the staff make you feel welcome; happy and well informed. They know the right place to visit , the right restaurant to recomend, they're always Handy. If you look for a more personal service the Antic Espai is the right hotel for you.

Very friendly and helpful --centrally located therefore easily reached from the shuttle bus stop --They spent a long time on their computer pre booking us an entrance to the Sagrada which saved about an hours queue--We were out all day so only spent the night at the hotel which was very comfortable. Extremely good value.Barcelona

what an amazing place to stay, and a great price too! central location, and the staff member, Danny, was extremely friendly and very helpful with nothing being too much trouble! wouldn't hesitate in recommending it to others. Our room was very clean and well kept daily. A great nights sleep, but i would say it needed more draw space for clothes. The plug socket in the bathroom was a bit temperamental too.All in all though, i would gladly return for another stay.

Room Tip: room 103 is great for 2 friends sharing, and overlooking main street with balcony
