what a wonderful place!!! thanks so much to roberto, pablo and tom who made my first barcelona experience amazing, starting from the very responsive, detailed room reservation and information, warm welcome greetings and well explained and prepared maps, tour and restaurants guides to delicious breakfast and coffee and many more.....
i felt really safe to travel by myself because the people at the guest house were just like my great friends who i could count on and felt so comfortable to ask them any questions.
the guest house is located at such a convenient location. i stayed at the guest house for about a week at room 2 with bathroom and balcony; it is really like a paradise! what a delight to just sit at the balcony to enjoy barcelona.. thanks very much!!!! i hope i will come back again to visit in the near future!!!
p.s. all rooms can be locked which are important to me since i am travelling by myself.
