    Bathrooms, kitchen and dining room are quite basic. On a main road and I think there is a metro line underneath the building, so can be quite noisy

    Great space for a large group. Location very central

    Disappointing

    • Stayed 4 nights

    This B&B is more like a hostel and although the photos show quite grand rooms they are a bit misleading. The rooms have no real facilities, our double was actually a twin and the shared bathrooms leave a lot to be desired, not cleaned regularly and shared by an unknown number of other guests. The breakfast was very poor although the nice waitress seeing how disappointed we were with the accommodation offered to cook an omelette which was a nice touch. The location is good but overlooking a busy road and not for light sleepers especially when the trash carts start moving around so early.

    The local was good near the Gothic quarter and close to the Cathedral.

    They could have told me that I had to pick up the key at their office a couple of walking minutes away from the property. Would have made things a bit less complicated

    The room and facilities were clean and the location was just perfect. Friendly

    The location was excellent.
    • Leisure trip
    • Couple

    We booked last minute and didn't notice the details about having to collect (and drop off) keys from a different location which is very inconvenient. The hot water didn't work the first night but the next day I overheard someone saying that you might you need to check the water heater in the kitchen if this happens.... Our double room had a tiny window overlooking an intersection which was okay but it was difficult to sleep with cars accelerating at the lights intermittently throughout the night.

    The location was excellent.

    For 140 per night we thought this B&B was very disappointing. There was no welcoming when arriving at the location, we had two separate beds instead of a king size bed, we had to make our own breakfast in the morning (except for the first day) but sometimes the baquettes were already finished because other guests came first. The room was right next to busy road so very noisy and the bathrooms were not very clean and very small showers. No cleaning of room or changing towels during our stay of 4 nights. Be passionate about having a B&B or not run it at all. You can't let your guests make their own breakfast with very cheap, uninspiring products. Not for this price.

    The location was very good and the style of the decoration was nice (allthough furniture needs an update, closet in room was almost falling a part)

    The staff doesn't know how to answer the phone call from the foreign travelers. The address for the office stated on the website is incorrect and you will never get to the office at one shot.

    The check in for this B& B was not at this address. It was a few blocks over. No one answers the buzzer at the location. Thanks to the Cab driver who allowed us to use his phone to get direction to receive our key. No air circulation is the room. Could not open the window.

    Close to attractions. Large room but furniture was very dated.

    Great place, been there now for the second time. Very central, you can reach most places (Barri Gotic, Ramblas, El Born...) and even the beach by feet. Friendly personal but not much service, which is okay since you are out most of the time to explore the city. Very cute house, feels more like an apartment. Would go there for a third time!

    1. No reception available at the address; 2. Room is very basic inside; 3. no Toilet and shower in the room. They are for common use in the corridor; 4. Too much noise from the street; 5. No daily cleaning of the room and change of towels, unless you find a cleaning lady by chance and ask her; 6. You need to prepare breakfast yourself with the food already provided by A&B; 7. This is pure hostel!
