      Historical Traveler Reviews Marina View B&B Barcelona

      Perfect location in vibrant and hip Barcelona

      from

      Our time in Barcelona was very special in large part due to the hospitality at MarinaView. Jose was an excellent host and went out of his way to make our stay a memorable one. The breakfasts served in our room were great, and the location was perfect. Everything was top-notch and I recommend a stay here to anyone looking for charm and impeccable service in an amazing city.

      Great Place

      from

      I stayed at Marina View this first week of July and it was perfect! I stayed in pier room and it was nice and comfortable. The breakfast every morning at the requested time was a perfect way to start the day and the best thing of all is the location, I cant imagine a better location in the city. This place is by far better than any other hotel I have stayed at around Europe and the U.S.

      Great place to stay!

      from

      This B&B is in a great location and Jose is an awesome host! He was extremely helpful, gave me a laptop to use and breakfast was great. I ended up having to leave a day early and he didn't charge me for the early departure. Just an overall great place to stay.

      Superb place to stay!

      from

      We booked two rooms. The Columbus room (very nice, beautiful furnished big room with a great view over the port) and a smaller room (Fishermens Room, also very well equiped but darker, with no nice view, but also cheaper) for our two children. The breakfast was served in our room and was always on time and very nice. The restaurant tips Jose (the owner) gave were better than the ones in our guidebook. He truely loves his job and so you feel very welcome. The weather wasn't to great when we stayed but we could use umbrella's that were available for the clients. The location is ideal: in the center of a beautiful city. We would advise it to all our friends!

      Best Ever Location between beach, city and old town

      from

      We stayed there for three nights fri-mon in March. We booked in to the Pier room as the larger one with the marina view was not available. So happy we booked at Marina View. Excellent comfortable beds, very nice furniture a top class bathroom and modern conveniences such as mini bar, tea making facilities, internet hair dryer etc. Fantastic tasty brekfast with teas juices, fruits and breads served every morning in our room!

      The appartment is easily found near the bottom of La Rambla and across from a big promenade along the marina.

      Our host Josť Maria was always close by to help with us with any directions or advice on the city. When I created an almighty mistake at the end of my trip, it was never a problem for Jose to sort it out for me afterwards and make sure I had best of memories from Marina View in BCN.

      Ignore any other venue, its Marina View or Nuthin!!

      You will return!!!!!!

      from

      What it is - it appears to be a seven room apartment on the fourth floor which has been altered to a a VERY high standard into five excellent en-suite rooms. The sixth room is Jose's office, the seventh is a kitchen where the excellent breakfasts are prepared.

      Location - could not be better. Just off the bottom of Las Ramblas and facing the marina. A view to die for. (And only a stroll from the Metro - Drassanes.) We were in our room less than one hour from the plane hitting the tarmac!

      The welcome - like an old friend. Jose is always there to help but never intrudes.

      The room - we booked Maremagnum but due to a cancellation Jose gave us a choice. We chose Columbus but believe me either room is perfect. Both face the Marina with uninterrupted views. The decor and furnishing is what you would like for your own home and are immaculate. The rooms facing the marina are not overlooked by anybody - we didn't close curtains at all but with the view you wouldn't want to!

      The breakfast - delivered when YOU want on a tea trolley to your room. Each morning we sat on the sofa in front of the balcony window and took in the view with the sun streaming through.

      Service - when you return to your room you will find it in a condition you can only dream of. Full marks to all the staff!

      Summary - I am always reluctant to recommend hotels etc to friends in case they are disappointed. Marina View is the exception. Read the reviews, believe them and prepare to be amazed. These rooms a really a find and deserve their praise. Jose is a true gentleman who obviously loves his work and his guests.

      Thank you, Jose, for a wonderful break in one of you fabulous rooms. You are Numero Uno! See you again soon!

      Great B&B in Barcelona - Marina View B&B

      from

      We stayed at the Marina View for 5 nites and it was simply fabulous. The innkeeper was charming and so helpful. The rooms were beautifully appointed and quiet. It's situation is excellent, right in front of the Barcelona port and floating shopping center, walking distance to all the sites in the old quarter. We were absolutely delighted and recommend it to one and all.

      A perfect home away from home

      from

      My husband, son, and I stayed at the Marina View for 10 nights. Barcelona is a fantastic city on its own, but our stay at the Marina View further enhanced the experience. Our room was immaculate and pretty, with a gorgeous view of the harbor that provided tranquility at the end of a busy day. The location of the Marina View is ideal, just a few blocks from the Ramblas and a metro station in one direction, the Barri Gotic in the other, and Barceloneta just across the street. Jose, the man who runs the B&B, is an ideal host, ever helpful and thoughtful of his guests' needs. Each morning he brought a delicious breakfast to our room, which we enjoyed in front of the beautiful view.

      All in all, we had the best time, and felt grateful to have lucked out and found the Marina View (on traveladvisor.com, by the way). It also got a nice review in Frommers, if you want to check that out.

      Highly recommend

      from

      We stayed at marina view b&b for five days and fours nights over new year's 06-07. It was a wonderful place. we stayed in two rooms and the rooms with the balcony view are by far the best overlooking the marina. rooms with balcony are larger than others. other rooms are smallish but typical of b&b's in europe. rooms were en suite which were hard to find in barcelona, so this was a find. safe provided in room which was a plus. the breakfast of a selection of breads was very good with juice and good strong coffee. rooms were clean and neat. internet access too. b&b was on a major street so convenient to all the major sites which were within short walking distance and very close to metro to hit farther spots. it was quiet too in the rooms. best of all was jose, the innkeeper, he was very accomodating and nice. he even provided cava and grapes to ring in the new year in accordance with tradition and his restaurant recommendations were very good. in short, this place was a find and we'd recommend it to anyone who likes b&b's.

      MarinaView B&B. What can I say? It has to be Barcelona's best.

      from

      MarinaView B&B is a real find. I doubt if even Barcelona's grandest hotels can beat its location. It's next door to the Ramblas and a step from the bus for a tour completely encircling this amazing city. (A surprise round every corner!)

      Best of all, as its name suggests, MarinaView has a breathtaking view of the Marina. I couldn't take my eyes off the ever-changing scene, particularly at night with the lights of the great liners reflected in the water.

      On arrival, you'll wonder if this is really a B&B. You'll be high up in an old apartment block. Picasso painted from a balcony nearby - but wait till you enter MarinaView itself. Here your surroundings are modern, stylish, spotlessly clean and with every convenience, including air conditioning and/or central heating. You can even have the use of a computer.

      Did I say the view was the best thing of all? I was forgetting the wonderfully welcoming host, Jose. It seems as if nothing is too much trouble for him to make you feel immediately at home.

      Every morning of my stay, I woke up to breakfast served in my room, with hot fresh croissants and rolls and excellent coffee. I have to say Marinaview is top notch and I heartily recommend it.

      Barcelona Day 2

      Our hotel offers 2 types of breakfast: continental for 6 Euros and buffet for 11 Euros. Since we know we will have another long day ahead, we chose the buffet and fueled up enough to last until dinner time. Barcelona tourist spots, like Madrid, are very rich in history. Taking photos are not enough to be able to appreciate its splendor. So we decided to take the free tour again by Sandesman (Thank you Sandesman!!!). We met up with ...

Sam had been here on his first visit to Barcelona 6 yrs ago and has pretty much raved about it every opportunity since. Unfortunately it was rainy and overcast today so not only were there no views it was wet and cold so any plans we had for walking through the mountains were quickly shelved. We ...

      Strolling along Las Rambles with the masses, it was so nice to slip off into the narrow little laneways of the Gothic Quarter. This area was filled to the brim with charm offering uber cool tapas bars, restaurants and quirky little shops. The architecture was captivating and we simply couldn’t get enough ...

      Sadly today we spent 7 hours traveling back to Assumption which was miserable. However I am very excited for Easter Mass at the Vatican with the Pope tomorrow!
