“Very Interesting, small hotel”
Reviewed 3 July 2012

We found this hotel on Trip Advisor and it was a delight. Small and absolutely stuffed with antiques and items collected by the owners. Service was excellent and we were given excellent information and advice by the staff.

Room Tip: Would not advise if traveling with small children. Too many beautiful things to break.

I booked this room for my daughter and her traveling companion based on the reviews here. I just called her a minute ago and she said; " Mom, this hotel is ridiculous!". I said: "What? What's wrong?." Se said "No. No it's great. The room is small but every inch has antiques and beautifu ornaments everywhere. I eel like I am in the 18th Century. Wait. Is that the right century?" She said how cool the shared terrace is and how fun it was going to be to have breakfast there. Thank you Sergio and Muhammed for the smooth booking!

While the antique objects and clutter were lost on me. What was appreciated was the personal service and interest shown by Sergio. His restaurant advice was spot on and he was helpful with ensuring we made the most of our time in Barcelona. Rooms are small by modern standards but everything was well maintained and very clean. The very opposite of your minimalistic,stark modern style corporate hotel. Continental breakfast. Good location. Excellent modern coffee shop just around the corner.

Room Tip: Ask for one facing the street for more natural light. Double glazing shuts out traffic noise nicely.

Stayed here for two nights in July 2011. The employees were very helpful, but that was about the only perk that I noticed. The entire place was cluttered with odd decorations, making it feel more like an antique store than a hotel. Our tour group originally booked us with Hotel Curious (or so we thought), but when we got there, we found that our tour group had failed to make the reservation. They switched us to Hostal L'Antic Espai, which was a disappointment. Hotel Curious was in a better location, and seemed very modern and clean.

The location of Hostal L'Antic Espai wasn't terrible (maybe a 20 minute walk to the beach), but there are better places to stay in Barcelona.

We want to clarify that our Boutique Hotel is just a classic place with classic and antic decoration. We have nothing odd in our decoration. It’s only made with peaces full of history from around the world. It’s another thing your taste. But believe me, 93% of customer’s satisfaction that means something. Do you have an idea?
It’s made for people who likes and love antics. Is not our fault if you choose a modern place, which you prefer for decoration and style but they had an overbooking. What is more important, a minimalism place which have not your booking register or a place where you can stay and you can trust??? I will prefer the second option…
Our hotel is a city hotel, five minute walking from the main square. If you want to be close to the beach, please select beach hotels.
Our hotel is, for sure, a very clean place and has better reputation than Hotel Curious.
Thanks and Regards,
Abel Estévez González.

This is overall an excellent hotel for the price. It is well located, just off the main square but far enough from the hordes of tourists on la Rambla. The hotel is full of character, lovely building, and interesting anique style furniture. The place is clean and one the whole the staff were very friendly. They let me leave my bag there for the day when I was leaving.

The main negative was I had a single room that was tiny and did not have a window; no hot water early in the morning and the TV did not work (not that it mattered). The breakfast is not worth paying for. However when you compare it to many other places it is great. However when you take into consideration the price, location and character then they are not big issues to be honest.

I hope to stay there again.

Room Tip: get one with a window!
