This is a gem of a find. It was recommended by friends who live in Barcelona and more than lived up to expectations. Sure, it might not have all the amenities of a five-star hotel, but what it does offer is a clean, pleasant atmosphere, a friendly and pleasant staff, and LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION. Just steps from the Picasso Museum and the winding streets of El Born, it is also within easy walking distance to the waterfront, a Metro station, and Cathedral Square, with Las Ramblas and Placa de Catalunya lying just beyond. As a frequent visitor to Barcelona, I wouldn’t stay anywhere else.
