Clean, comfortable, roomy, and quiet well describe my studio at this pleasant guest house, located in South Beach just three blocks from the beach on a quiet street, close to many restaurants. Although some of the furniture is a bit worn but completely serviceable, the overall ambience of the studio is quite relaxing with a view of the charming garden...

A year ago, we stayed at the Barcelona (visit #3) and did not have a good experience. Poor management had led to a decline in basic services. But what a difference a year makes. Management is back on track and several changes in housecleaning and trash removal have brought improvements. Ignore an earlier rant and check it out: outstanding location...

We have stayed at the Barcelona three times in the last four years. Why? Based on our first two stays, we thought this was the best deal in Miami Beach. Now, after stay #3, we’re not so sure. The management has changed and appears to be not up to the job isn’t. The Good? Location! Price! Simple comfort! Around the...

a great place to stay, low key, very basic, very well situated near the spanish street, and near the best French cafe A la Folie, not far from the beach and near the big mall street and all main hotels.

Barcelona Guest House is a great place to stay if you are on a budget and want to be in the heart of south beach. It is easy to get to from the airport as the shuttle bus lets you off just about 2 blocks away. The Guesthouse is right off of Espaniola Way but is off to the side...

My husband and I staying at the Barcelona Guesthouse during one of Miami's busiest weeks, WMC. We had an amazing experience! The location is tucked away but not desolate to Miami's charm. Great food and shopping in walking distance. It was just far enough away from the hustle and bustle that we were able to have a relaxing weekend away....

My rating is more like 2.5*. I went to Miami in late February, and found you couldn't even sneeze there for under $150 a night at that time. This place was about half that price and so I booked it with a bit of trepidation, knowing how accommodations can be in South Beach even at twice the price, but my...
