Very Different
The guest house was nice. Different from our usual choice. We were looking for a different experience and we certainly found it. A little more expensive than I expected but overall a very nice stay. Barcelona was beautiful and the experience part of the adventure.

Euro charm but BROKEN AIR in August.
El Born REVIEW: I paid about $40 more per night for The El Born Guest House due to the rarity of its advertised air conditioning. It is the traditional smaller European size room, on the edge of the historic old section of the city. I went in August with two of my adult daughters. The small wall-mounted air conditioning unit DID NOT WORK all four nights there. Barcelona is hot and muggy in the summer. The nights were insufferably hot for us. Night air just as hot outside as inside. We couldn’t sleep much until it cooled down outside at 4:30am. This made our day touring difficult as we were all tired from lack of sleep. The on-site manager seemed very sincere in his efforts to fix the air conditioning unit, but to no avail. The manager also said he would try to contact the owners, to see about compensating for suffering through not getting what we paid for. However, he did not secure any discount prior to our departure. If El Born does come through with some recompense, I will note that and offer some words of satisfaction in the face of this suffering. We did not go to a different hotel because for the first three days while we were out, the manager called my cell to tell me the problem had been fixed. Strangely, the manager told me that other guests were coming to stay in this sweltering room shortly after our departure. What is he telling them? Why would he want anyone to stay there?

3/5 Okay

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
The room with a twin bed was smaller than expected (about the size of a walk-in closet), but adequate for one. You have to maneuver to get out of the shower, as the bathroom was very cramped. Also, this room is located literally right behind the check-in counter and hotel front door, so you hear every guest enter/exiting/checking in, which affected my sleep. Other than that, all the basics needed for a single hotel room were covered. The check-in process can be confusing, as the door to the street is locked, so be sure you have the hotel phone number if the buzzer does not get you in. It also helps if you call the hotel and coordinate your arrival time prior, as I witnessed 2 guests sitting and waiting for the owner to arrive during my stay.

Very nice room, though a bit smaller than expected. Clean and comfortable. Great location and nice staff. Use of the kitchen and coffee in AM is a huge plus.
