Anita's Bed & Breakfast
Ranked #110 of 310 Barcelona B&B and Inns
Reviewed 27 March 2008

We loved the warm, friendly welcome we received at Anita's B&B along with the quiet neighborhood location and lofty view over Barcelona from our shared patio. Parc Guell is within a mile and Sagrada Familia is clearly in view with the Mediterranian beyond. The folks at Anita's go out of their way to help visitors find good restaurants and to negotiate Barcelona's public transportation system. The simple but hearty communal breakfasts served by Ariadna and her Mom feel like time spent visiting favorite relatives. The rooms are quite nice, though could do with some decoration, such as pictures on the walls, but still a great value with breakfast included and free internet access. Tip: Don't plan on renting a car during your stay at Anita's since there is no place to park. Even if you're in good shape, you'll grow weary of hiking up and down the steep hill between Anita's and the nearest Metro stop, but the good news is there is a convenient bario bus that stops every half hour just 1/2 block away and you'll get to meet friendly neighbors during each 10 minute ride to and from the Metro. Note: Barcelona's Metro system is quite safe and efficient and can take you anywhere in the city within approx. 25 minutes.

The B&B is located about 1/4 way up Mt Tibidabo (542m). Access to the B&B is via Bus 124 (a 5-min journey from Metro Station Penitents). Or a 15-min uphill walk from the same metro station. It is possible to walk if you are used to walking uphill and if you have no "load" (no heavy bags or luggage), and if the weather is pleasant. The last bus leaves Penitents metro at 9pm, and it runs infrequently, so we walked uphill most nights instead of waiting around for the next bus. Which we all looked upon as a pleasant stroll to end the day, albeit uphill.

The room we had on the same floor of the common room is big and spacious. The bathroom is clean and there is a bathtub. The room was cleaned everyday but the towels were not replaced everyday.

As it is an old neighbourhood, every night we could hear water dripping/flowing from the neighbour's pipes behind the wall of our room. However, we were told this problem would be fixed in the next weeks.

The breakdast consisted of very delicious crossiants, freshly-made toasted sandwiches, cereal, coffee, juice, cold milk. Our daughter had strawberry yoghurt bought especially for her, which I thought was a really nice touch.

The host Ariadna is genuinely friendly, accommodating, helpful, and sincere. She made our stay truely enjoyable and that is what matters most.

A nice B&B with clean rooms and standard breakfast (coffee, juice, cereal and a sandwich). Very friendly family. But be ready to climb up high in the hill to enjoy the promising view over the city. It is about 5-6 metro stations from the downtown, plus a 10-minute ride by a bus (which goes every 30-40 minutes until 21.00) or very sportive walking up to the hill within 15 minutes. On the 3d day your legs are aching and you may feel despaired especially if the bus drivers are on strike for a week. Gaudi park, Funiculair station are in the walking distance. 1 night stay is 80-90 euros per room.

Anitas can collect and return from the Airport, this worked perfectly.
Situated on Mount Tibidabo you have a wonderful view of Barcelona, from the balcony of your room.
The room was very spacious and comfortable. Breakfast set you up for the day, and our hosts were a mine of useful information.
A perfect place to unwind and relax after a hectic day sightseeing in Barcelona

This was my best bed and breakfast experience ever. Anna and Ariadna made us feel like family. Breakfast was wonderful and the room was perfect for us (mom, dad and a little kid). While the neighborhood was not central, it was a great way to stay in an area where people actually live. There were no other tourists around and it was quiet, plus the view from the terrace was spectacular.

This is the second time that I have stayed Anita's and it is still a fabulous place to stay. This really is the B&B that I compare all others to. The warm reception we received from the staff was excellent. We were welcomed at the airport and allowed to check in immediately. At breakfast the next morning, we were treated to the special Catalonian dishes in additional to the rest of breakfast of croissants, bread, and cereal. They are also very kid friendly and always has a special treat for my children. The room was very spacious and has a TV/ DVD combo with family DVDs to watch if you do not bring your own. I have recommended staying here to a number of friends and they have also had excellent stays.

Another great break at Anita's B+B. This is the fourth time we have stayed and never tire of the view of Barcelona from the balcony. The rooms are comfortable, beautifully decorated and breakfast is great. The pickup service from the Airport (Barca or Girona) is fantastic and saves the hassles of arranging taxis or transfer by bus. The service provided by Ariadna and Anna is second to none and we are always made to feel very welcome.
