Umma Barcelona Bed & Breakfast Boutique
Ranked #47 of 308 Barcelona B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 16 February 2014 via mobile

I wouldn't call this boutique by any stretch of the imagination but clean & relatively central it is. Our room was incredibly noisy with the traffic outside roaring past the window. The room was very large & bed comfortable.

Lady owner very helpful indeed. There is no natural light in the public areas which makes it ratter depressing & there is an odd smell as you come in like old fruit. It is not bad just not great.

The one delight is the old fashioned lift! It is a real gem!

Stayed: February 2014, travelled as a couple

First time in Barcelona and found Umma to be excellent value for a central city location.....would recommend it without hesitation! Owner and staff very helpful and friendly. The hotel was in an excellent situation close to the main facilities, attractions and public transport.....

A gem in Barcelona! Very new and clean rooms and Daiana works hard to make your trip easy by making calls, answering questions. She will make calls for you, get information, restaurant recommendations and all with a smile. She's almost always there to help. Access to the kitchen, free internet and breakfast are really great perks!

It is a bit of a walk to a metro stop, but there are plenty of buses and cabs on Avenida Diagonal right in front. Bottom line... great place to stay when in Barcelona!

Room Tip: The rooms in the front have balconies, which is very cool, except that the street can be loud throug...

This was our first trip to Barcelona but from before we arrived Daiana contacted us and made every effort to make us feel welcome by checking our estimated arrival times and making sure we had all the info and address details we requried. She even gave us advice on various methods of transport from the airport.
On arrival we were given a map and lots of helpful advice on the city, sights, ow to avoid queue's and travel and getting the most out of the metro. Daiana booked us tickets to some of the sights of Barcelona saving us hours in queuing time as we went straght to the front at Sagrada Familia and also helped us with restaurant bookings at a Flamenco show.
The room was spotless, and the bed enormous and very comfortable. We were lucky too as we had a balcony at the front of the property.
The access to the building and rooms is not with a key but to a personalised code which saves you worrying about having to carry a key around with you.
Breakfast is continental, and although it's great to have it included I actually would have gone without but not because there was anything wrong with it, just because there are so many delicious looking bakeries close by which smell devine as you walk by, I was too full each day to take advantage of the freshly baked goodies they had on offer.
The location is really good too as it's a 5 - 10 minute walk from a metro station so just away from the noisey Ramblas but close enought to get everywhere you want to go easily.
I think compared to some of the hotel pric es in the city this was very good value for money and I would stay again if I were to visit Barcelona as, as per the title of my review, we couldn't fault anything, We knew what we had booked and it therefore exceeded expectations.
Thankyou! :)

Room Tip: We had number 2 and this was at the front with a balcony but it is on a main road so obviously there...

I traveled to Barcelona for the first time in early August. I can't rave enough about this B&B. I spent a lot of time researching where to stay - looking for something afforable, modern, and in the right area. Save yourself a lot of time, and just book with Umma. Here is why.

1. Location. The location could not be better. You are a 10 minute walk from the metro, you are a 3 minute walk from wonderful restaurants, shops, history, and it's SAFE. We were 2 young women travelling alone and did not feel unsafe once - and we were walking home from dinners at 1am.
2. Cleanliness. The rooms and the B&B were so clean and well looked after.
3. Staff. Daiana was SO helpful. We had an issue with our bank cards and she took the time to help us make calls, offer advice and it felt like the 3 of us were together in this issue.
4. THE BREAKFAST!! Fresh - baked there - croissants, along with fresh fruit, juice, cereal, tea & coffee.
5. Value. It's such good value for your money. You can't beat this location!

I will be back to Barcelona, and I will be back to Umma. I would recommend this B&B to everyone with no hesitation.

Umma Bed & Breakfast Boutique is an ideal base for visiting Barcelona. Accommodation is very good and Daiana is an excellent host. Daiana made us feel very welcome and on our arrival suggested numerous places to visit. Thanks to Daiana we found an excellent Tapas Bar / Restaurant. During our stay we spent most nights walking back from the City Centre, even though it was quite late we always felt safe and at ease.

Barcelona is a beautiful city and we found the local people to be very helpful and friendly. Umma Boutique bed and breakfast was easy to find. We took a taxi from the airport with no problem. Umma is situated in a lovely area with plenty of places to eat and shop. It's located within walking distance of Casa Batillo and the start of Las Ramblas. We even walked to La Sagrada Familia ! which took us about 30 minutes. If you do not wish to walk too far it is in easy reach of the metro and bus stops including a convenient stop for the tourist sight seeing bus route.

We have travelled to Canada, America and other European Countries and class Barcelona and Umma Bed and Breakfast as a real find and we plan to return sometime in the future.

Home just yesterday, I stayed here with my husband and two sons, the moment we stepped foot into the building we felt comfortable. Diana is very attentive and helpful (my son commented on how nice she was with us). The building itself is simply beautiful, off set by clean, modern decor, a mixture of old and new that just works! The view of other great buildings is possible from the balcony. Being at Umma just added to our stay in Barcelona... I highly recommend it if architecture, style, price, a great shower, cleanliness, a good breakfast and location is important.

Room Tip: We booked the sightseeing bus tour (red one not blue) there is a stop so close to Umma, just around...
