“simply fantastic”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 5, 2011

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

Stayed alone few days, just fine. Very simple but also very affordable :) Manager was nice, he helped if one had questions, borrowed un umbrella when it was raining etc. Room had a big bed, tv, fridge, ok bathroom with bathtube. Arrived early and that was no problem, he had left the key to a box for me, so very flexible. Enjoyed the best dinner at Joe Crabs.

The reason to stay here is the location, price, and cleanliness. The service is good, but the staff is simply one guy, Daniel. He's friendly. The rooms are mediocre, and it's less a hotel or guest house than some repurposed apartments.

But the price is right and the location is grande - in the heart of South Beach, one and a half blocks from the beach, and smack between South Beach's two pedestrian malls.

I decided to travel alone for the first time in my life and I went to Miami. I stayed at the Barcelona Guest House and I had a wonderful time there. Everything was perfect, near to the beach and to ocean drive, very close to Lincoln Road and only a block from the Espanola way, a beautiful street full of little restaurants and nice bars!!!
The guest house was very clean, the room was big, with wi fi every where, and the bed was very comfortable. Its manager, Daniel was always there to help me in everything I asked, he was very kind.
I' ll definitely come back! thank you a lot
