“Great value for money, great location, basic.”
Reviewed February 10, 2012

I really wanted to find something in between "average," which this place is not, and "Very Good." If I have one hand on a hot stove, and the other in the freezer, my temperature, on the whole, is "average." The room was large, clean, and basic with extras. Basic meaning some of the cabinetry was unfinished, extras meaning a very useful kitchen set-up with dishes and cutlery! Friendly and accomodating staff. Incredible location. Strange smudges and drips on the back of the door, which I paranoidly think was dried blood. What the other reviewer says about free parking out by the golf course is TRUE!!!! Thanks for the tip!!!

The rooms are dirty, we found a cockroach in our room. The plates, the glass...everything was dirty. The air conditioner is very noisy. Location is great,right next to espanola way. But i will never go back to this place!

Barcelona Guest House is in a superb location right in the heart of South Beach, close to Ocean Drive and only 2 blocks or so from Paul patisserie on Lincoln Mall (beats Starbucks!!). It's a nice looking building with a small well kept garden. The Studio was spacious and comfortable, but housekeeping could have been better...it's a bit unnerving when you find long hairs on the sheets. This aside though, we had a good stay and got a really good weekly rate which included New Year's Eve. Daniel has moved on and the place is now run by a French lady, Jean, who was very nice and very apologetic when we met her on the last day and mentioned the hair incident.
Miami tip - for anyone with a car, it IS possible to get free parking in Miami Beach.....in the residential streets on the other side of the Golf Course, about a 20 minute walk from the hotel.

The Barcelona Guest House is in a perfect location in South Beach! Dan, the manager is very polite and nice! The bedroom I stayed was big, there was a mini chicken with oven, refrigerator, etc. The place is good, but not luxury! The bathroom is old, but everything works. There is no
Hotel service! Most of the time there's no staff there! They offered me beach towels too, it was nice!

I stayed here for a week in february, My friend wanted to join me and Dan the manager said it was no problem and upgraded me from a single to a large double for free. Ive travelled to Miami many times, yet Dan recommended many places to me that Id never been to before. His knowledge of Miami is invaluable - what he doesnt know aint worth knowing.
The location is perfect 2 blocks to Ocean Drive or 2 blocks to Lincoln Rd Mall and 2 blocks to Flamingo Park and seconds from Espanola Way, where you are spoilt for choice with fantastic international cuisine.
Also locally are fantastic cheap places to eat....
Playa Cafe for breakfast... Cuban cafe with huge cheap breakfasts on Washington Ave 2mins walk away.
Moshi Moshi for beautiful Bento Boxes for lunch and Hiros for fresh sushi, both on Washington and very reasonably priced.
oh and Art Deco supermarket, which also does cheap takeaway food as well as all groceries.
Rooms were great, large and airy with kitchen facilities, which would be useful if your on a budget, however i didnt cook once.
Theres a small outdoor courtyard to sit and smoke or relax in.
My only complaint is it can be noisy early in the morning with refuse trucks etc, but thats not the hotels fault, its just a fact of life.
For the money and location i would recommend this guest house 100 percent and Dan is the best manager/concierge ive ever met.
Thanks for a fantastic stay. I nwill be returning soon
