positiv:Location was pretty good. Good access to Metro and Gracia area. Short walk to Sagrada Familia.Excellent nightlife and cafe/bar/restaurants in area. Room was nice. Building was lovely.
negative:
the staff were initially friendly, however, they did not have much time for us after the second day. requesting help or information regarding Barcelona didn't offer anything insightful and conversation was not something they were concerned with. Breakfast was mediocre at best. toast, cereal, cold coffee. the breakfast area was not comfortable. Noise was an issue. As the 7 rooms opened into a common/kitchen-living room area cleaning often woke us; as did traffic noise from the street. towel changes were not frequent enough and even on request we were refused, which was a little dissappointing.

While located in the centre of Barcelona, Casa Dover is a bit outside of the busy touristic area. And that's definitely an advantage! It is close to a metro station, so that way access to the entire city is easy. The Sagrada Familia is in walking distance (10-15 minutes).
The place is well maintained. The rooms are very clean. Breakfast is fine.
I would certainly consider staying here again !

We stayed at Casa Dover in March, and were very impressed by it. It is located on the first floor of an attractive old building, with a lift. Our room (no.2) was large, very comfortable, attractively decorated and very clean; we asked for a double bed and the two singles were made into a Kingsize+ bed which was really comfortable. There was a sofa, table, wardrobe with ample hanging and storage space, and very clean ensuite facilities. Rooms were cleaned daily. We had a balcony, overlooking a busy road, and above the restaurant owned by Casa Dover. Casa Dover is a cross between a small hotel and a large B&B! There are 7 ensuite rooms, a good buffet breakfast is served each morning from 9 - 11 (very civilised!) and guests are encouraged to use the microwave and/or help themselves to tea/coffee etc at any time of the day or night. The staff don't live on site but Christian, the manager, and his deputy were very helpful and always available by mobile if not in the building. The restaurant itself - more a bistro/wine bar - was a great place to relax and enjoy tapas, light meals etc. We were given a token for a complimentary drink - cava, wine or beer - when we arrived - and were impressed by the staff and the venue generally.

Casa Dover is in a very convenient place, within easy walking distance of a metro station.

The rooms on the front are at a busy road intersection so it can be noisy - but we didn't find that a problem at all. Probably light sleepers might request a room at the back of the building.

Room Tip: See above re requesting room at back of building if you are a very light sleeper. Our room was lar...

Extremely clean, furniture in great condition, nicely decorated, good location, close to Sagrada, Paseig del Gracia and metro. Very nice staff, good breakfast.
But.
The bathroom was built in the room (obviously added at some point), had a sliding door 30 cm away from the bed, it is impossible to be used in the night without waking up your companion. The room was also very dark, almost no natural light. In the morning people start to move around the common areas and it gets quite noisy after 9 am.

Room Tip: The rooms with street view are noisy from the cars and also from the breakfast area, but are larger...

I have travelled to Barcelona as a young couple in June 2011 and we chose Casa Dover over booking.com. It was one of the most amazing places we have chosen for accommodation: great location in Eixample district, very fashionably renovated apartment, transformed into a B&B. Our room was beautiful, big, furnished in warm colors and natural furniture and with a great shower. I highly recommend it for a city trip! It is a very good value for money.

It's not an hotel but an apartment converted into B&B: the flat is very nice with very comfortable and modernly furnished common area (Kitchen/breakfast and lounge).
Our room (room 2) was large, confortable with ample bathroom. Excellent beds.
Although Christian, the owner, does not live in the flat, he is present to welcome you and for breakfast and by phone whenever you need him. He's a very nice person and very helpful
The B&B is close to Verdeguar metro station in a nice area, the Segrada Familia and Casa Batllo are within walking distance .
Buffet breakfast is good and abundant. Coffee machine, water boiler, microwave, fridge and kitchen ware with fresh ground coffee, tea bags etc. freely available in the kitchen.
Excellent value for money.
The balcony of room number two faces the main road and is just over the Adonis bar, so if you're staying in this room (and I suppose this is valid also for the other rooms facing the road) expect some traffic noise and crowd noise from the bar below until early in the morning during weekends.
However the noise is not too bad with the window closed and we could have a good night sleep.
