Ckriston, Gerente at Padilla Guest House, responded to this reviewResponded March 31, 2011

Dear friend,

First of all thank you very much for your review. It is always good to know our guests impressions and commentaries, they are always welcome!

Regarding your review, we are deeply sorry you didn’t find the kind of place you were expecting. Despite our place is cleaned daily and almost every day our managers are there to check the house, it has been worked always without innkeeper, allowing our guests to feel more comfortable without the permanent control of a supervisor.

Nowadays we have a 24h telephone number where you can reach us in case of emergency and as soon as we check our mails in the morning we try to answer it and solve it as fast as we can.

Again we are sorry for the misunderstood, as we are not an hostel, but a Guest House.

Thank you again for your visit and review!

Best Regards,

Bernat.

If you're looking for a place to stay in Barcelona that is near to all the sights but far enough from the all-night noise of the central area, then this place is perfect. The price is excellent: so much so that I was expecting something far more basic and I was in fact very pleasantly surprised. It's very clean and well thought out, with lots of food available for breakfast and a really nice kitchen with everything you'd need to make meals and enjoy drinks after a day's sightseeing. We had a lovely time at the Padilla and would not hesitate to return if we come back to the wonderful city that is Barcelona. Thank you!

The Guest House was clean, the rooms basic, comfortable and adequate. The owners are friendly and helpful and hold to high standards. The kitchen is well organized with different containers linked to the different rooms - so you can keep your food in the refrigerator or pantry and it avoids confusion between guests. There are two washrooms in the guest house and both were cleaned daily. My only criticism is the bathroom nearest to the kitchen has a horrible sewer smell to it but if you close the door - it does not impact the rest of the apartment. And this is out of the owner's control. Otherwise, a great kitchen with some spare ingredients to share like oil and salt which was much appreciated. As a solo traveller, it was also a great way to meet other travellers renting other rooms in the guest house and we often shared meals together. This just made my trip that much more fun, enriching and enjoyable. The rooms are very affordable and the Guest House is in an excellent location about three blocks from the Sagrada Familia. I would highly recommend the Padilla Guest House!

Very clean, big rooms and located very near to Sagrada Familia. You don't live with a family if that is what you are looking for, but as an affordable and more freestyle option to a hotel is a great option

Located in a large flat. Not fancy but tidy, appears to be cleaned daily (saw cleaning lady twice), nice neighborhood with lots of bars and restaurants, within walking distance of 2 Metro stops and the Sagrada Familia. Free self service coffee/tea and breakfast cereal/toast. Only real downside is no TV, but who goes to Barcelona to watch TV?

My husband and I stayed here in September, 2010 and really enjoyed it. The location is perfect - very close to the Sagrada Familia and many metro stops. The place is clean, comfortable, no frills. I believe they say they give you breakfast - do not count on this unless you like packaged muffins and crackers - we did not eat any of the "breakfast" items that were left for us. We did enjoy many chocolate croissants and Americanos at all of the many cafes that were very close to the Padilla. The shared bathrooms were not a problem - there was always one available and they were clean. All of the other guests were very nice and it was fun to meet them and find out where in the world they were from. There is no staff - someone will meet you, let you in, and give you lots of helpful information about getting around the city and they give great suggestions as to where to go. There is a phone number to call if you need anything - but we were fine the four days we stayed there without any staff. Please be aware of the pick pockets on the metro! My husband's wallet was stolen while we were getting on the train the last day of our stay. We thought we were being very cautious, but these guys are professionals and have your wallet and are off the train before you even know it's missing!
