    I love extended stays in B&B's when traveling - especially those like El Balcon - to get a flavor for local life. The reviews here do point out some of the shortfalls...no A/C, an older building in need of some minor repairs, limited space and...More

    We love El Balcon, first and foremost because of its location. Our visit to Barcelona was decided last minute, so we decided to go for El Balcon again, because we loved it so much the last time. The bosses of El Balcon havent change, and...More

    We choose this b &B because we had stayed there before and so enjoyed it. Especially the born area. We stayed in the same room, the shower had mold around it, the floor tiles were broken, it seemed very tired and dusty. Breakfast was just...More

    First off, this would be a five but that we were there in September in a heatwave and really felt the lack of AC. El Balcon del Born is definitely a five kind of place! All my correspondence with them before our trip was quick...More

    First things first... there is No A/C here, and if you're traveling in the warm months of Spain, it can really make a difference. There is quite a bit of noise from below since there are 2 patio restaurants right outside the windows. You might...More

    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
