Gracious hosts and staff, excellent location, comfortable and spotlessly clean. Marcelo and Olivier made terrific restaurant recommendations, booked reservations and catered to their guests' needs. We truly enjoyed our stay and recommend the property.

Marcelo and Olivier are two very friendly and helpful individuals (evidence of this came when I had a little emergency). The B&B is very tastefully furnished, it is very clean and there is tremendous attention to detail. What the range on offer at breakfast time loses out on in terms of variety is certainly made up for in terms of...

We had a wonderful stay and the host has a wonderful 2nd floor flat. This location is in the heart of the Gothic Quarter of very old Barcelona and close to everything. The guests were equally lovely. Would return again with no problem!

Small casa in el Bonn. Owner Marcelo was there to greet us and give us tips on where to eat. The room was clean and comfortable, we stayed in room 4 which had a shared bathroom which was clean at all times. Breakfast was sufficient. We would stay here again. Thanks Marcelo.

My wife and I recently stayed for 5 nights at the Casa Marcelo Barcelona. We were very happy with the accommodations and the helpfulness of the hosts.

Casa Marcelo was perfect - great location for accessing all parts of the city including great restaurants and bars as well as public transport, very friendly hosts with an impressive vocabulary in any number of languages, and a beautiful setting. We will definitely be back! Thank you.

We stayed here for 3 nights and very much enjoyed our stay. The guest house is beautiful and ideally located for easy access to all parts of this vibrant city. Olivier, Marcelo and the rest of the staff provided us with a very warm welcome. Breakfast is lovely and a perfect time to mingle with the other guests.

Staying in El Born / La Ribera

Neighbourhood Profile
El Born / La Ribera
The labyrinth that is El Born becomes most apparent the moment you turn down one of its side streets. But this is one of the few labyrinths you might actually enjoy losing your way in. After all, there are few places that live and breathe such exciting energy regardless of the time of day. This neighbourhood seamlessly transcends the old and new parts of the city, reflected in its vast array of restaurants ranging from fancy Michelin-star establishments to trendy fusion restaurants. Here you'll find historical and cultural attractions such as the popular Picasso Museum and the Gothic cathedral La Santa Maria del Mar, where you just might be able to catch a traditional Catalan wedding.
