Great, centrally located place! Rooms are generous in size (we stayed in one of the suites), comfortable and well designed. Bedding is comfortable, and there is a lot of space to store luggage and clothing. The large rooms are definitely a luxury compared to many European hotels / accoms...and especially for the price!

The location is a bit of a trick to find the first time, and the elevator is slow. We had an inside facing suite that was very private, although there was quite a bit of construction noise from the inside courtyard during our stay. The hallways can be a bit noisy in the morning with other guests - so don't plan on sleeping in.

Staff is congenial and welcoming, and provided great restaurant recommendations. There is not a full time reception, but we did not find this to be an issue.

We agree with the previous comments about the quality of the breakfast, however. It is fairly cheap / poor quality - some fresh juice and better quality products would have been appreciated. This is, after all, Barcelona - so much amazing food that is so readily available, would have been fantastic to start the day off a bit better.

Staying two nights: very nice rooms, very friendly personell, very good central location - but considering the price level the breakfast is a slap in your sleepy face: cheap industrial ham, chorizo and cheese, baguette, some mediocre marmelades and cereals, cheap yoghurts - thats it - not a good start for a long day. Which is a pity as everything else is great. Was so annoyed this morning that still not sure if I would repeat, i had better breakfasts in (youth) hostels..

We stayed at the 5 rooms on the recommendation of close friends who had stayed there last year. The location is unbeatable (5 mins walk from Plaza Catalunya), the rooms are comfortable and stylish and the common area and breakfast offer everything you need. I had read in another review that it was a disadvantage not having the reception staffed at all times but we had a positive experience. There is always someone there in the morning and the staff are so friendly and go out of their way to help. The restaurant recommendations were very good and they also took a lot of effort to help with the problems I had with online booking for Sagrada Familia and the taxi we arranged to return to the taxi. I highly recommend this hotel and will definitely return!

We would recommend the 5 Rooms to a friend in a heartbeat. We did a lot of research to find the right accommodations in Barcelona, which for us meant finding something that felt fresh and comfortably luxurious, which was positioned in a good location and would give us a reasonable price for our extended stay. We stayed at the 5 Rooms for our honeymoon of 10 days and 9 nights in Barcelona, which I suppose is probably longer than many of their guests. The Junior Suite on the 2nd floor was perfectly sized with a little extra space and a balcony that looked out onto a courtyard. Very quiet and private. The breakfast that was included for the price of our stay was also a little better than we expected. The friendly and accommodating nature of the staff was also a big plus. They made us feel welcome, helped us get oriented when we arrived, and provided several recommendations for restaurants, neighborhoods, etc. -- all without our having to ask. The only suggestions we would have are (1) to have a hotel safe in the closet of the guest rooms -- for peace of mind about valuables that need to be left in the room during the day; and (2) to make an automatic espresso machine available in the common area, or have other accommodations for coffee in the guest rooms.

Room Tip: Get The Junior Suite on the Second Floor!

After searching the huge range of overly expensive small roomed hotels and fading gems that seem to inhabit Barcelona I came across The 5 Rooms courtesy of concierge.com. Almost like an upmarket B&B this boutique hotel charms with warm and caring service, urbanely stylish rooms, relaxed breakfast room and very quiet rooms - in an excellent location. Reflecting the comments of other people, our bags missed our flight and we were advised wouldn't be delivered to the hotel until 10pm. The girls normally go home at 9pm but waited the extra hour so we could get our bags. If u r after something small, personal and a great reflecting of Barcelona this is a great choice. If you are an early riser like me a great little bar/cafe is across the road that opens at 7am!

"The 5 Rooms" (actually, there are 12) is a stylish and comfortable b&b. The furnishings are modern and chic, the bathrooms are outstanding, the location is excellent for both shopping and sightseeing, and Jessica, the owner-operator, is a charming and effervescent hostess. Highly recommended.

A charming small hotel in a perfect location. Helpful and friendly staff made our first trip to Barcelona very easy. Our only suggestion would be tea and coffee making capability in the room or common area. Would highly recommend 5rooms. We stayed in a Junior Suite.
