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.

Close to everything. This part of Barcelona is lively at night. Plus lots of restaurants and gelato shops are right near by. The metro worked well and we walked a lot. Oliver was a big help planning things to do and how to get around. Shared bathroom was not a big problem. We had room 3 which is in the...

A wonderful, peaceful place to stay in the old quarter near everything interesting!! Breakfast in the morning with the breeze coming in from the balcony is delicious and relaxing. Olivier helped me get my ticket to SantPau Hospital and had some great ideas on what to do in Barcelona. An easy walk from estacion franca - a perfect location!

We spent 2 nights at Casa Marcelo and were extremely impressed. The room was comfortable and there is a wonderful friendly and homey atmosphere in the place. Apart from the b&b itself which was lovely and very conveniently situated for all of the sights in Barcelona, what truly puts this hostel over the edge are the owners. Olivier looked after...

You'll need the earplugs! There is so much atmosphere from this room, however. The location is perfect in El Born. Sooooo many tapas bars, patisseries, gelaterias etc. Marcello is a gorgeous human! We stayed 6 nights and enjoyed ourselves very much.

Spent 2 nights here at the end of August, it is ideally situated and very comfortable. Olivier could not have been more helpful. He spent a lot of time with us on our arrival, sharing his local knowledge to ensure that we made the most of our limited time in respect of places to visit and eat. I would thoroughly...

Arriving at Casa Marcelo was no easy feat owing to the distinct lack of signage. After finally working out that the unmarked timber door was indeed where we were staying, we were promptly met by the owner himself, although after carrying our bags ourselves (my arm was wrapped in a bandage owing to a broken wrist) we started to realise...

Gorgeous, historic building on a lovely, car-less street in historic quarter, just across plaza from excellent tapas and within walking distance of major sights. Managers and staff were lovely and attentive. Breakfast was delicious. Thank you!

I stayed at Casa Marcelo for two days in May 2016. The location is excellent if you want to be located centrally in Barcelona. The Gothic Quarter is beautiful but of course very touristy. Good restaurants everywhere and lots of shops. My stay was in Room 1, which was well maintained and perfectly clean, but a little small and dark,...

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.
