Personal experience

This is an exclusive service that we offer if you book your room through our website

The reason is very simple. We want to help you make your experience in Barcelona and our home the best that it can possibly be.

Shortly after booking your room you will receive a survey. In it we will ask you some questions to get to know a little about you and your interests. With this information we will put our efforts into finding special places, restaurants and activities that may be of interest to you. We do this because on the internet there is a lot of information, but nothing like locals using our sense of smell, and knowledge of Barcelona and our surroundings to give you the best advice in order to tailor a visit specifically for your needs. In the same survey you can ask us for all those services included in our section “Improve your stay” that may interest you, obtaining special discounts and preferential treatment.

You can also arrange, in advance, participation in the tours we have on offer in our “Genuine tours” section.
