Interaction with Guests
For check in and check out, I try to work with you to arrange whats best for both of us. I work outside of the city but so far I have always arranged the times so it works for the guests. If I'm not available someone can help. There is no check out tme, necessarily... and you can leave your luggage in the apartment until you leave.
When you arrive, I'll give you a map and show the major sites and nearby secret haunts that are quite hidden. You can call me anytime during your stay.
The born is a beautiful, old, roman district in the heart of Barcelona. Popular with tourists, its not a crazy as the Gothic district. It has amazing restaurants and bars, 10 mins to the park, 15 minutes to the beach.
Public transport is not really necessary as you can walk to almost everywhere because we are in the centre. However, we are two minutes away from Arc de triompf, a train station which brings you directly to the airport, or 10 minutes from the airport bus stop. If you are driving, there is a large car park around the corner.
Please leave the apartment the way you found it

Great stay in Barcelona! We were made to feel very welcome. The apartment is in a good location, nice and spacious, with a balcony for the morning sun. Everything you need for a short stay. Håvard (Shane's flatmate) took care of our visit and was a great host, easy to contact, accommodating, and laid back. Would definitely recommend a stay here.
We had a great stay in the appartment. Shane was not there so Shanes friend Håvart took care of us and he was a great host, very friendly and very easy to contact. The appartment is spacious and bright and we had everything we needed. We were 4 adults and 2 children and the appartment was big enough for all of us. The area is very nice and the appartment is located on a quiet street.

We spent a 6 person family vacation in Barcelona with three generations present, and this apartment worked perfectly for our needs. First of all, the location is terrific - just off a major street, but relatively quiet. We could easily walk with both children under the age of 8 and grandparents in their 70s to several of Barcelona's best attractions, as well as minutes from the bus and metro lines.
This is our fourth time using airbnb, and this has been the best stocked kitchen we've ever had. We cooked several meals, and had plenty of pots, pans, plates, and silverware, etc. Two of the bedrooms are large and spacious, while the third is simply a mattress on the floor, but perfectly functional; I would say the pictures give an accurate description. Like any apartment in an old building, it has its quirks, but overall it either met or exceeded our expectations, and I would not hesitate to stay here again in the future.
It was very easy to arrange things with Shane, being able to fix freely together the hours of arrival was a plus as we were a group of 6 people not arriving at the same time. The flat is very nice with bedrooms of a good size. Very handy location in a semi pedestrian neighbourhood.

About the Host, Shane
Living in the heart of Barcelona in a sunny, stylish apartment, this is where I've decided to rest my head after a lot of travelling. I've lived in London, Dublin and Paris but I now call Barcelona home. I love to travel, meet new people and EAT. I love to cook and discover new food around the world.
