    The warm welcome, excellent communication, helpfulness, and follow-up provided by Roberto, Anna and Pablo kicked off our visit to Barcelona. Staying at El Balcon is like staying with friends.

    El Born / La Ribera
    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
