          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

          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
