Plaza Catalunya Guest House
Ranked #125 of 307 Barcelona B&B and Inns
Reviewed 4 July 2012

So much to say about this wonderful B&B. The owners David and Ana renovated the place with incredible taste and warmth. Two very special people that really does everything in their B&B with passion. In my opinion every bit of criticism on this board for this B&B is unjust. It's the cleanest, easiest and warmest place in the centre of Barcelona. I had family staying in ANBA, and for the price and the value we all agreed that Bcn AM B&B was the place to be. The insight of David and Ana into the local places to visit really helps if you are new to Barcelona. They take a great amount of care with their guests. In exchange for basic manners, respect and common sense, you will receive an over abundance of hospitality. David works tirelessly with Ana to ensure everything is taken care of. If I can remember the floors were preserved and they are 130 years old for example. So much character in this building. The main building entrance is currently being renovated which doesn't cause any problems with accessibility or any difficulty in finding the place. I would like to make one thing clear, that this place is VERY VERY easy to find, and they give great instructions on how to reach it. Again, if there are any complaints that it's hard to find, then this person likely does not know how to reach their own residence. Its that easy. Furthermore, I would like to only congratulate David and Ana for one of the best experiences they have provided me as a traveler and a newbie to Barcelona. Keep the great work going!

we stayed here for a night in the run up to Sonar music festival. We were so pleasantly surprised by the accomadation that we were disappointed we had not booked for a longer stay- the photos do not do it justice! Anna and David were very friendly and helpful and there property is modern with a tradition feel that has been decorated to impeccable taste..We stayed in a 4 star hotel the previous night and for a fraction of the price this place way outperformed the hotel..We would prefer BcnAM. To top it all off it's very reasonabley priced at €90 per room incl breakfast and it's situated at the top of Las Ramblas so location is perfect and the area is peaceful for a great night sleep or if you fancy a night out it takes less than 2 mins to be standing on Las Ramblas ...We go to Bacelona regularly so we will be booking Bcn AM B&B again..;-)

We stayed at the apartment Ana and David (the hosts) have. It is on Rambla Catalunya, about 12-15 min walk from Placa Catalunya.

1. Location - Right below the apartment are many of the finest restaurants in Barcelona. It is 1 block away from La Padrera, Passeig de Gracia and the Metro Station. If location is one your top criteria then dont blink, just pick this place.

2. Apartment - It is a one bedroom apartment. Spacious, comfortable, clean and well kept. The furniture is new and looks very good, better than the pictures Ana and David sent us. Quiet neighbors and no noise from the street. We stayed here with our 9 month old and she loved the place as well.

3. Hosts - Ana and David are just a wonderful couple. They were the perfect hosts. The day we arrived at the apartment they sat with us for over an hour. They explained to us everything about what to do, where to eat, how to reach etc. Their recommendations were the best part of our trip, the food places especially. Also they were always available on whatsapp, so we would just ask them any question while we were out and they would reply immediately.

This place is a gem. I am already recommending it to friends and family. Would definitely stay there again on my next visit.

Myself and my dad have just arrived back from Bcn AM we travel to Barcelona every year to watch the motogp so have found the areas that are best for us to to stay Im pleased to say that i will be back here next year and every year after, it is in the perfect location for our favrioute bars and within easy reach of the train station which we have to get each day.

The terrace was perfect for eating our breakfast on which we did every morning we were there i couldnt believe that we were in central Barcelona!

The breakfast has to have been the nicest we have had each morning the bread and meat were so nice I couldnt help myself but to go back for seconds.

I personally think the biggest problem with our room has to have been the beds, they were so comfortable that we struggled to get up on a morning.

David and Ana have an amazing place here and we cant wait to go back, they offered us ideas on where to eat and where to go and were on had via the phone for anything we might need which had to be a great advantage.

Also the free WIFI was very fast which was an added bonus as we could just skype home on an night.

I will say this again and will shoot myself in the foot as i wont be able to get booked in next year now but perfection has been achieved.

Fantastic b & b. you can't beat this location. Just outside of reach of the crazy tourist zone, it felt like we had a home in Barcelona for 3 days. The owners are kind and helpful. The apartment is remodeled and positively charming. Beds were comfy. I would recommend bringing your own toiletries, since this is not a proper hotel. Also, there are 3 bathrooms for 5 rooms (for max 9 people). I never had an issue, but some people are not comfortable with this situation.

Airport shuttle drops you off opposite of the street, which is a huge plus. No sign for b & b, but look for farmacia on corner the door is just past the burger kingmgeneral.

Price is fantastic, and I wouldn't even hesitate to come stay here another time!!!!!

The B&B is very well located next to Plaza Cataluyana. The owners are very nice, a couple of a French guy and a Spanish girl. The apartment is very cozy, well located and clean. Breakfast is excellent.
The only thing that was a little disappointing for us is that the bathroom is shared (or not, we did not understand it well), but you need to go out thru the living room to go to the bathroom and toilet. Despite this, we really enjoyed our stay.
So for those who don't mind, it is a great place to stay!

We stayed at the B&B and their nearby apartment, and it was quite wonderful. David and Anna are amazing hosts, and they really care about their guests. They are enthusiastic in sharing their favorite things about Barcelona, and their restaurant recommendations were great. The B&B has historic charm, and they have decorated it very nicely. The breakfast was also very good in quality and variety. There is one common dining table, and we enjoyed meeting fellow guests. The location is very central so you can walk to a lot of stuff, and it is easy to reach by metro, bus, or the Aerobus from the airport.

We also stayed in an apartment they own, and it is just a few blocks away from the B&B. It is near a lot of great restaurants, shopping, and Gaudi houses. We would love to live their permanently!
