For me, Circa 1905 is everything that a Bed & Breakfast should be. It is conveniently located in the Eixample neighborhood of Barcelona, less than one block from La Ramble and less than one block from the Passeig de Gracia where many of the most famous Modernist homes are located. The B&B is also located within a short walk of the various neighborhoods that you'll want to visit including the Gothic neighborhood and el Born. There are also several bus stops and subway stations located within a short distance that can easily transport you to places such as the Sagrada Familia or the harbor. The property is a very large apartment that is located one flight up from street level in a beautiful Modernist building. The apartment has been sub-divided into several guest rooms that are beautifully decorated. My only quibble with our room was that the bathroom lacked for storage space. But, in the context of the overall experience, this was a minor point. The breakfasts at Circle 1905 were excellent and consisted of some outstanding fresh baked goods and a wonderful assortment of cheese, ham, fresh fruit and cereals. For me, the small selection of top quality products will always beat out a large selection of mediocre products. Lastly, the service provided by the staff at Circa 1905 was outstanding - friendly and helpful without being obtrusive. If you plan on visiting Barcelona, I highly recommend a stay at B&B Circa 1905.

After waiting for nearly two years to visit… (covid :-( )we finally arrived to be greeted by the lovely Javier (sp) who was so friendly and extremely helpful. In fact all the staff were lovely. Always replied to my many emails quickly!
Highly recommend requesting a room with a balcony… we had room 2 which had beautiful high ceilings and the biggest bed! I would bring ear plugs though due to street noise!
Breakfast was plentiful but most of all location was perfect!
I wouldn’t hesitate staying here again!
Thanks to all the staff xx

Circa 1905 was fantastic - in addition to the central location, great accommodations, and tasty breakfast pastries, they provided above and beyond service. We made a mistake and neglected to check out on our last day before heading to Montserrat (was an early morning departure and we weren’t thinking straight). The Circa 1905 notified us of our mistake and generously offered to pack our things for us without charging us for an extra night. Highly recommend!

Arrived from an Intl flt. from the US at 10:30am and check in is at 2pm. Unfortunately the occupants in our room wasn’t checking out ‘til 12pm. Fabiana , the woman checking us in , like a mother hen, made us so comfortable and even though breakfast just ended went out of her to get us breakfast . She made sure our room was available at 1pm. Great place in a great area. Definitely will recommend this place👍👍👍

This B&B was exactly what I was looking for for our trip. It’s nestled in downtown but has a great private feel. It’s a little tricky to find but that’s what creates the privacy. The room with the terrace is well worth it as it provide ample space for breakfast and a beautiful fresh air breeze through the room.

Our stay at Circa 1905 was an amazing experience. We were welcomed by a very kind receptionist who showed us around and gave us some tips on restaurants nearby. The room was beautiful and very clean, with a wonderful terrace overlooking a courtyard. The breakfast is also very well curated, with fresh fruits and both sweet and salty options. Overall a truly 10/10 stay, I wouldn't want to go anywhere else on my next trip to Barcelona!

Exquisite and extraordinary, this boutique hotel is called your 'home' by Javier the manager when you check in. And you could not find a finer home. With Gaudi's Casa Mila at one end at La Rambla's tapes bars at the other, it is in the heart of Barcelona's most refined parts. And that is it, Circa 1905 is all refinement, from the breakfast to the classically furnished rooms and the subtle mood music, you are instantly elevated into another realm of the best of human creativity and culture. It adds to the lustre of the full experience of Barcelona at its purest best.

Wow! What a lovely hotel. We had a balcony room looking over a courtyard-it was so nice to have breakfast on the balcony. The room was easy to make dark, it had sound proof windows, and the bed was sooo comfortable. Location is really good. It also smelt really lovely. Definitely, definitely recommend.

It was a decent bed and breakfast. Really big rooms and the location is superb. The place smelled kind of bad, and I wish the breakfast was better (we only ate it one time because we preferred going out as opposed to what was served here). It's a 4/5 from me - good location, good room, decent value, but nothing extraordinary

Exceptional place. The location is fantastic, everything right in your door step. Staff were very accommodating helping to support in anyway we needed. The style of the hotel is beautiful and a lot of care has gone into the design. A terrace with the room was brilliant, the space was large and immediately gave you the sense of being on holiday and relaxing. Make this a must stay!
