1st time in Barcelona
Staff was fantastic! The room was beautiful and quiet. The bed was extra comfy and it was located near all kinds of great stuff & places to eat. Would definitely recommend and would definitely stay again.

It was very loud. There is no reception to control the noise, only someone who is there for a few hours during the day. Very high ceilings so noise echos well and the night I stayed there I was woken up at least twice by loud people in the hallway. Also on it says check out is at 12, and at 10:50 we received a knock at the door saying check out is at 11. We were told it wasn’t a problem for us to stay until 12, since they “recently changed their policy”, but we managed to check out at about 11:10. Here’s the interesting part. I am an American girl, with latino heritage, but my friend did not speak spanish so I did not want to speak without her knowing what I was saying. Because I did not speak Spanish, the woman at check in/out, who seems to manage the place along with what appeared to be her mother, assumed that I (we) do not speak Spanish. The receptionist then began to ask her presumed mother if she should offer us a coffee because of our misunderstanding. The mother tells her “no, not if we’re going to throw them out of here”, and the daughter questioned this, thinking maybe she should still offer us coffee. They did not. This doesn’t make or break the service, but is more to say, never assume that someone doesn’t speak spanish in a spanish speaking country! Definitely left an impression on me

Awesome comfortable stay
Edward was an amazing host. The room was awesome, comfortable, the bed was just right, slept like an angel. It is close to shops, stores, the security of the place was also amazing. Just a wonderful trip... next time I'm in Barcelona I'll definitely stay at Principal BnC

Great location, helpful at desk. Everything new. Nicely done. Optional breakfast was good. Needed better signage. We looked all over for hotel and it was right in front of us! No place to put clothes when showering - need hooks and an additional place to put second suitcase. All in all would stay again.
