Barcelona Best Rooms
Ranked #283 of 310 Barcelona B&B and Inns
Reviewed July 18, 2013

Location is excellent: the center of old city. You need less than 5 minutes to go to Rambla (with metro station), port, Catalunia square. Appartments were clean (we took two bedroom appartments), kitchen had everything that we need. It's small, but large terrace has table that we used for our meals.
In general, our impression was very good and we recommend this guesthouse to others. But be prerared ;)
We found the street without problems, but there was no sign of guesthouse on the door (actually it's glass door with numbers 6,8,10 above it) - we had to ask for it at nearby cafe. And we had to wait for the keys almost two hours - landlord's phone had lost signal and we could not reach him by phone.

Room Tip: Select two bedroom appartments - it's excelent choice for family with kids. Take mobile phone wi...

We hadn't planned to stay here so for a very last minute booking I wasn't expecting a lot. It had clean rooms, provided towels, kitchenware, washing machine and was pretty spacious. There were 4 of us sharing the 2 rooms, with one huge bed and another not so much. However we got given the top floor, with a roof terrace (and loungers) and a private bathroom. It's in a great part of Barcelona where everything is walkable, 5 minutes from La Rambla and 20 minutes from the beach. It's not fancy but it has more than you would need to somewhere you hope to just lay your head in. I agree with comments about waiting on somebody to greet you, but after a call they'll eventually show up. It's Spain after all. And the only other bad point is the A/C isn't great.

I had read on-line reviews of the Barcelona Best Rooms where people had explained that they had to wait outside for the landlord to arrive, since no one was ever on staff there. I thought that this was due to some miscommunication with the landlord. I had e-mailed him with my arrival time, and he wrote back to confirm that he would be there. I called his cell phone as I was leaving the airport, but got no answer. I kept calling for the half hour drive into the apartment, but I didn't hear from him for an hour after we were scheduled to meet. Before he called me, I thought I was in the wrong place. The way the numbers on the street are strange, and the actual address was a building with boards on the windows. So I thought that I wasn't in the right place. It turned out that he had completely forgot about meeting me and was taking a nap. About a half hour later he showed up at the apartment, after I had waited in the wind.

I submitted a complaint about all this, and the landlord offered to compensate me 21 Euros. I sent him my bank information to convert to dollars over a month ago, but I haven't received any information about it. I am not holding my breath that I will get the money.

A few other things about the apartment...

They don't clean the rooms after you check-in, but there was woman cleaning the bathrooms and kitchen everyday. She was nice, and spoke English well. She probably would have cleaned them if asked, but just know that it won't happen on its own.

The furniture in the rooms was very rickety. My room was originally set up with just a bunk bed just on the top. Fortunately they had brought the mattress down to a cot. I think that bunk bed will be broken in a couple of months if people actually sleep on it. I don't weigh much, but it rocked back and forth when I got onto it.

I know Barcelona pretty well, and the location is great. The prices were OK, but if you book early enough you can get something much better for the same price.
