Sants is a neighborhood with a clear identity because of its historical origins. It was the main core of an independent village until 1897 when it became part of Barcelona, the former municipality of Sants included most of the actual neighborhood of Sants-Montjuïc district. By then, Sants had a population of 19,105 inhabitants, and the neighbourhood had a strong industrial character, home to some of the most important manufacturers of Spanish textiles, such as España Industrial and Vapor Vell.
In the spring of 1883, the municipalities of Sants and Barcelona decided by mutual agreement to merge the two respective municipalities. One year later, the central government annulled the merger due to technical issues. The process was again put in motion the following year. City hall sent a request for aggregation to the Diputació Provincial de Barcelona, but this request was not fulfilled for more than two years. In March 1889, the Civil Government asked the Deputation to solve the case,which ultimately reflected the interests of the city. A commission presided by Rius i Taulet traveled to Madrid to help move along the case. However, once more, the Deputation took no action.
The main artery of the neighborhood is Carrer de Sants, popularly known as Carretera de Sants, which unites Plaça Espanya with the neighbouring municipality of L'Hospitalet de Llobregat. It is one of the most commercial streets in Barcelona. Among the places that stand out in Sants are the Barcelona Sants railway station, the major railway station in Barcelona, and the Parc de l'España Industrial.

Estupenda casa, diseño y comodidad máximas. Tanto Samuel como Slavko fueron encantadores y estuvieron dispuestos a solucionar cualquier duda. Repetiremos sin duda, esta vez en verano, para poder aprovechar la piscina!!!
We made an last minute booking with Slavko, I'm so glad we stayed at their house.
Slavko is a great host, easy to communicate with.
From the first minute when we walked into the house, we immediately felt like home. Very nice decoration and settings, It's better than the suite we stayed in previous two nights in W hotel Barcelona.
We forgot one of cosmetic bag when we left for next location, Slavko offered to express it to us. I wanted to pay him for the shipping, he said: "Nope, yo are out guests and this is at least we can do for you".
Wow, what a experience. Slavko is our new friend in Barcelona.
It was our first experience with Airbnb and it was a great experience. The flat was very comfortable, decorated with very good taste, and very clean (beautiful bathroom and shower, well equipated kitchen, very nice patio in the middle of the flat, etc). I find it is a high standard.... and I am quite demanding ! As soon as we arrived, my family and I immediatly felt at home. Samuel and Slavsko were very sweet, thoughtful and discreet. They answered my numerous questions before, during and after our stay, and gave us a lot of precious informations which made our vacations still more pleasant. Last thing, the flat is situated in a very pleasant and lively district, very easy to reach from everywhere. In conclusion, when we go back to Barcelone, we will go nowhere else than in Samuel and Slavsko's house.
We had a lovely stay in Samuel & Slavko's beautiful apartment. The courtyard and rooftop terrace are super nice and even in February we had great use of them. Samuel & Slavko were very helpful and responsive. We could definitely see ourselves booking here again!
We had the best time – wonderful place! Friendly and kind host – made us feel very welcome.
Our trip at Svlasko and Samuel flat in Barcelona was really wonderful : the flat is so beautiful, very cosy, calm and very Well decorated ....
Svlasko was very kind and helped us to really enjoy our stay.... We felt so good There ...
Thank you so much to have made this week end in Barcelone so wonderful ...
See you soon in the swimming pool ;)
I am really terrible at writing reviews of places I stay for the most part they are all good and my time is precious so generally I think giving the hosts my money is enough.
I make an exception in this case because Slavko and Samuel where such good hosts and their place is really lovely. From where to eat or shop and even 4am wake ups to get airport cabs they were always helpful and charming. The place is warm , very tastefully decorated and perfect for 2 couples with so much room between rooms that you have complete privacy. I cannot say a bad thing about this place nor the host's. You really wont regret staying here my only problem was not seeing much of Barcelona because I was so comfortable at "home". Thanks so much S&S. X
You know Slavko how much i love your house.....i wish it was mine:)! Perfect place to come back after a busy day of touring and shopping around Barcelona!
Samuel and Slavko are great hosts: ready to welcome and available for guest's requests. The place is just amazing! Definitely my first choice anytime I'll visit Barcelona again.
Nothing else to say, just perfect. Five stars!!
We visited in late November 2013, the house is very spacious and clean. Everything you need is provided. The house is in a very quiet area and only a 5 minute walk to the metro. The Metro is excellent and arrive every 5 minutes. Weather wise bearing in mind the time of year,during the day it was 15-18 degrees. At night temperatures drop to 6-7 degrees. I would visit again in the future.
