Sylvia’s Guest House

General Castaños 4 Principal, Barcelona, Spain, 08003

Overall Rating: 91

Guesthouse in the old fishermen district, walking distance from the Port Vell (old harbor), end of Ramblas, Park de la Ciutadella (Zoo) and Gothic Quarter. Exceptional restaurants all around. Great Tapas. You even can walk to the Barceloneta's beach (10 min).

We have 3 rooms. Room 01: is a great double room. It has one queen bed and a little balcony to the street. Room 02: is a double with a queen bed and a big wardrobe. Room 03: is a twin room, with two bunks that can be converted in two beds Note that we are not a Hotel or a Hostel, but a Guest House. Once you arrive to General Castaños street number 4, you will see an entrance to a normal building. Locate the intercom and press button saying 'Pral 2'. We recommend you that once you get out from the Metro exit at Barceloneta (Barceloneta stop of the L4, which is the yellow line), please call us and we will be picking you up from the Metro exit. That will be 2 minutes and you won't have any problem to get lost. For those purposes, it's very important that you will be sending us by email any change or update in your estimated time of arrival.
