“Barcino - could not find better”
Reviewed April 26, 2009

Barcino 147 is a very nice and cozy Bed and Breakfast located in the city center and in the vicinity of all major places of interests in Barcelona. It is very easy to reach and is the splendid base a newcomer can have to set about exploring this magnificent place. The BB owner, Ferran, is very helpful and forthcoming in orienting his guests in the city and its surroundings, providing with useful tips regarding museums, city events, and best places for tapas and paella. The rooms are comfortable, spacious as well as elegantly and tastefully furnished, with a touch of an artist. The rooms are cleaned every day. That's perfectly enough and besides that, it would be odd to use the word 'service' in relation to Barcino, because why and how would you expect to be 'served' at your own home? That's exactly how we felt during our stay there - at home! We had wonderful time and strongly recommend this place. Muchas gracias, Ferran, e hasta luego! Спасибо!

Highly recommended. Great help from Ferran concerning food and getting around. Perfect location unless you are overly sensitive to city noise. We will surely return.

High quality B&B accommodation at a reasonable price. Situated in an unremarkable block of flats, but once you get into the apartment you will be impressed-tastefully furnished and well equipped. For breakfast you just help yourself to plentiful food and drink left in the kitchen. Ferran is very helpful with recommendations for things to see and places to eat.

We drove up to the place from the Costa Blanca and the satnav took us to the front door. Not being familiar with Barcelona we didn't appreciate that the place is on the main drag through town. Arriving on a Friday night in rush hour traffic is not an experience for the faint hearted. There is parking next door but at 40€ for24hours it ain't cheap! Farran has responded to earlier criticism and fitted locks to the individual bedroom doors, not that we felt that security was an issue. He offered us a choice of the two available rooms and my wife opted for the one with a view on to the main road which had lovely views, but being a vibrant city centre, wasn't particularly quiet. She says on second thoughts we should have opted for the smaller room at the back which had an en-suite facility.
Farran pointed us in the direction of some great Tapas bars and some cheaper car parking and left us to our own devices. Rooms were clean and well furnished.
We walked everywhere during the next evening and the following day. The apartment is fairly central and we didn't use public transport at all.
Breakfast is a serve yourself affair but he has a nice coffee machine and a variety of toast and jams which I enjoyed.

We stayed at Barcino 147 when it just opened up earlier this year. We were in Barcelona for the marathon in March. Being the two of the first guests when it opened up, it was great. The place is clean and completely new. Ferran's got great taste. I don't know how he was able to pull off buying the apartment and setting up a beautiful B and B in such great neighborhood. Ferran was also a great source of information as we were always asking questions about the places we visit. Without him, we couldn't have done so much in such short stay in Barcelona. Thanks Ferran. Can't wait to go back.

We just returned from eight great days in Barcelona and staying at Barcino 147 made it more than a memorable trip. The location is excellent and easy to get to all the Barcelona tourist sites. We walked around the B&B neighborhood late at night and never had a problem. We felt safe at all times. Our room, the Picasso Suite, was lovely and spacious. Our private bathroom in the suite was elegant. We were surprised and delighted that our room was cleaned daily which is something that we do not expect at B&Bs. There was a laptop computer in the kitchen that was available to all the guests. The best part of our stay was Ferran, the propritor of Barcino 147. He could not do enough for us. He gave us terrific restaurant and tapas bar tips, he called a cab for us when we left for the airport for an early morning flight and did many other things that are too numerous to mention. It truly was the best B&B experience we have had, and we have had many.

We were favourably impressed by the apartment at 349 D'Arago. Ferran was an excellent host and we thoroughly enjoyed our week in Barcelona. There were 3 double bedrooms and a single bed in the living room. Although the bed in the front room was on the road side the background noise of the traffic did not disturb too much. Very comfortable and excellent location. Within easy walking distance of Sagrada Familia. The metro is clean and gets you everywhere.
