Barcelona is lucky to be endowed with fantastic B&Bs. YÖK Casa + Cultura, located in a residential, early 20th century building in the El Borne neighborhood, is yet another proof of this.
Although it’s not easy to stumble on this unique place, finding it is definitely worth the effort. One can’t begin to enumerate all of its advantages and also there’s no way of not mentioning the owners, Petz and Mari, who are utterly devoted to their guests.
Staying in one of their three apartments you will feel as if you were in your best friend’s super elegant apartment. Two of them have 2 bedrooms. The third as many as four. They are designed in an “eco-friendly” spirit using organic and recycled materials. The original features of Catalan modernism have also been retained: high stucco ceilings; mosaic floors, wooden sliding balcony doors. All of them feature fully equipped kitchens and relaxing seating areas.
On the roof of the building there is a charming terrace from where you can see spectacular views of the enigmatic Barcelona, full of secrets.
