I recently stayed at the BCN Fashion House for 7 nights, and had a lovely time! The rooms were clean, comfortable and equipped with a washbasin. The bathrooms were shared, but were cleaned everyday and kept immaculate. They also have a lovely sitting room, and an outdoor terrace/balcony area where you can chill out during both day and night. Although the Fashion House is a little bit difficult to find at first, once you get your bearings you can appreciate how fantastic the location is! You can reach Las Ramblas on foot within 10 minutes, then from there can get to Barceloneta (the beach) in another 15 minutes. The amazing La Sagrada Familia is also within walking distance, taking only 30 minutes at a leisurely stroll through beautiful tree-lined streets! The Urquinaona metro station is also located about 10 seconds walk away from the front door - excellent for if you wanted to travel a bit further away to go and see the many attractions which Barcelona has to offer (Such as Guell Park, which really is a must-see)! There are also several markets on that block, in addition to a number of cafes where you can have breakfast or lunch. They do provide a breakfast service too, which costs 6 euros each day or, if you have it everyday, it's 5 euros per day. Although I didn't actually eat breakfast here, it did look lovely!
The only thing that some people may find annoying are the showers (they are the type that you have to keep pressing at intervals to stay on), but everything else was so nice that this didn't really bother me at all!
If I return to Barcelona I would definitely stay at the Fashion House again!

I recently stayed 10 days at the BCN Fashion House and had a great time. The location is great, the Metro stop is right outside the door. But when we walked we are a good distance to many important tourist destinations. I had a suite with bath and the room was quite large. "Two beds connected" sounds funny but it does become a 'king' width, but not length. The staff was very helpful and we really enjoyed the terrace area outside as a meeting place for our group, or just a place to relax. We only had the breakfast at the House one time, because we were typically gone by 9am sightseeing, or preferred to pick up something from the nearby market and walk. But the day we had breakfast it was a lot of food and we turned it into a relaxing hour.

A couple of small knocks. With only one set of keys and a key necessary to run the electricity in the room (not every room, but our room) it was difficult to do something without your roommate going with you. Otherwise they are left in a powerless room.

The wifi signal is not bad, but it would hit capacity around 11pm and not ease up until the next morning. A couple of late nights not being able to sleep I could not get on the wifi in the middle of the nights.

I would recommend and I would stay again

That was my 3rd stay there over a couple of years, this time alone, though I stayed there with a friend, too. It's a nice neighbourhood, close to the underground station and 5-min-walk from the center. In fact it's a big flat with spacious rooms, high ceilings, nice living-room and patio ( good for smokers) Bathrooms are quite small, but clean and I never had to "queue up". Very good contact with the staff, both online and face to face. I do recommend Fashion House to solo travellers and friends (it's cheaper then)

I was there with my gf at late August for 8 nights and it was very good experience. Main pros are excellent location, fair price and friendly staff. Everybody there was speaking good English, even the cleaning was fine. We had nice room with balcony and used shared bathroom - there was no problem at all with that. It's quiet in there at night (Fashion House is situated in not so frequented street, which is cool, if you want to rest after all-day exploring of Barcelona). And the best thing, even in day, it is quiet. I think owners are doing the best to make everybody comfortable there. This is good choice for travellers of all ages, who wants quiet place, from where you can go to all important areas of Barcelona by foot (5-10 minute walk to Rambla, 15 minutes walk to La Barceloneta beach). You have also subway station near, groceries, caffe and shops nearby. By the way, there is lovely garden in Fashion House where you can rest, too. And air-condition in the room was also very good, we like that a lot.

Easy to reach from the airport via the blue 'airobus'.Get oft at Placa Catalunia and walk only 2 Blocks.

The welcome was warm and friendly. In contrary to many larger hotels the staff here was able to understand and speak more than a hand full englisch ! No misunderstandings.

There are rooms with a small kitchen and an 'inside balcony'.

The place is quiet. Good for a relaxing sleep.

There is a comfortable 'living room' with hot chocolate and coffe, as well as affordable, cold drinks and a quiet tarrace.

A litte mini-supermarket is around the block.

The Metro is only a few steps from the door. No need to change lines to get to the beach.

Hint: Buy a Metro ticket valid for the complete duration of your stay (apx. 7 Euro per day).

BCNFH has a perfect location, in between the most important quarters of Barcelona. Easy to walk and a very nearby subwaystation. The B&B is stylish decorated, but calling it a fashion house is largely overestimated. It's decorated in the mid nineties, but still nice. Breakfast is good enough, it;'s not included. When you decide to have breakfast at BCNFH during your whole stay, you get a discount of one euro pp per day. We had a large room at the front with a balcony and an airconditioned that worked well, in stead of two ohter guests who already have had two rooms with a broken airconditioning. The housekeeper was not really willing to repair it. He told them to write a complaint for the owner; we were there when he started to quarrel with them about it and he was not embarrassed that we could hear everything.
The price isn't worth the stay: you'll have to pay in advance and in this case: it is a risk! The showers are outdated; there's mould in the doors of the showers, the bathmats are greasy. The showers really need a fix up!! We made a deal to pay the day before we would leave and they agreed, after we were pointed out that their computerprogramm couldn't handle this, but they were willing to make an exeption.
They have rules for everything, written on printed notes in the B&B. When you need new towels, you have to pay for it, it says on a note in your room. For the price you pay, this should be included! So think twice when you decide to stay here!

Room Tip: Check if the airconditioning is working!!!

Dear Guests,
I would like to answer you that
"house rules" is the name for what you mentioned and are the basis of a good comunity of people sharing spaces and of a well organized structure who hosts many guests of all different cultures. As you said, always with a smile and flexible enough to make exceptions where possible.

I really liked this guesthouse. It was clean, relatively quiet, and it has a lovely garden with a hammock outside. The rooms and the house are well decorated. The wifi was good and they had AC units the room. My only complaint was that there was a light in the room that could not be turned off at night. I guess it was for emergencies? I found a way to cover it up because I couldn't sleep with it on.
