The Space

Hi, I am an English guy who has been living in Barcelona for 14 years. I have been busily and successfully hosting in Airbnb for over three years now. Cleanliness and good host service are very important to me and part of my flats´ popularity.
Please feel free to also look at my other places if there is no availability here:

Duplex Loft: Central, Big, Light www.airbnb.com/rooms/1335139 by Plaza Catalunya
The location of this flat is excellent in the heart of the best part of the old town 300 metres from the cathedral, town hall and the Picasso museum. The immediate area is full of restaurants, cafes, bakeries, artisan shops and supermarkets.
It is in the Born area which is the most charming, popular and safest part of the old town. Transport is excellent as there is a metro stop and the main road through the old town 100 metres away.
The first floor, south-facing flat is very light and has an airy, spacious feel due to its 3 metre high ceilings, wooden beams and two pairs of huge doors to the 10 metre wrap-around balcony.
There is a table and chairs on the balcony to be able to enjoy drinks and meals outside (and maybe people watch) in the sun which you have until about 4pm. Bear in mind, sunny flats in the old town aren't that common due to the narrow streets.
There are various types of curtains, shutters and blinds to create the intimacy and ambiance you need depending where you are in the flat and the time of day.
The bed has a 180x200x18cm latex mattress with an antique 3m headboard. There is a 200x80cm firm sofa which can also serve as a comfortable single bed as all the cushions are removable.
There is a separated inside eating area and the kitchen is well equipped to be able to eat and drink at home. There is a Tassimo drinks machine, kettle, toaster, fridge- freezer, television and microwave-convection oven combination. There is also a travel cot available.

  • We had a great time staying at Peter's flat. It's a great central location in Barcelona. There are tons of restaurants and shops within walking distance and a metro stop 50 yards away. The flat itself was perfect and exactly as described. It's a compact studio apartment, but the balcony was amazing. We ate breakfast out there every day and had wine out there every evening. Peter was very helpful and quick to respond to any questions or concerns that we had, including making restaurant recommendations. We definitely recommend Peter and this flat.

  • Peter is very reliable, friendly and easygoing person. The apartment is small, actually a one-room-apartement, very well located in the mere center of the Old Town. We felt comfortable although it is very noisy during the whole night. But I (not my wife) slept very well thanks to my ear-plugs. The bed is really very good. The bathroom and the kitchen are small but ok. We enjoyed our stay very much and say thank you Peter for your hospitality. Ueli&Kathrin

  • Peters Wohnung ist nett eingerichtet und beinhaltet alles was man für einen angenehmen Aufenthalt braucht. Er stellt eine Kaffeemaschine samt Pads bereit, es gibt Tee und auch Gewürze sollte man die Küche benutzen. Wir haben sehr gerne auf dem Balkon gesessen und dem Treiben der Stadt zugeschaut. Es kann schon etwas lauter werden, vor allem Morgens wenn die Müllabfuhr vorbeifährt, oder die Geschäfte und Läden in der Straße die Rollläden öffnen, insgesamt hat es uns aber nicht wirklich gestört, dafür war die Lage und Authentizität zu gut. Peter hat immer schnell auf unsere Anfragen reagiert und sich nach unserem Wohlbefinden erkundigt. Wir hatten einen sehr schönen Urlaub in Barcelona und die Unterkunft hat auch dazu beigetragen.

  • Peter is a very reliable and friendly host. He always cares if you need anything. So if you want to make good airbnb experiences, Peter is a perfect choice. His apartment is very cozy and sunny and really well located in the center of Barcelona. We felt comfortable the moment we entered his apartment. The bathroom and the kitchen are quite small but sufficient. A really nice extra is, that the basic things for cooking are included. We really recommend a stay in Peters apartment. Thank you very much Peter.

  • It was my third time in Barcelona, but my first time staying at Peter's apt. in El Born, the most vibrant district Barca's. The flat is perfectly located next to Jaume station. One will find EVERYTHING nearby like designer shops, cafes, cava bars, sneaker and vintage stuff with a dash of culture! Beside the area, the flat has an exceptional appeal due to its high ceilings and the lovely balcony. The bed is more than comfortable and of high quality. Everything from the internet connection to linen worked out well. I am quite sure that this wont be the last time to come to Barcelona staying hopefully at Peter's!!!

  • This is a great place to stay in the heart of the old city. The flat was clean and comfortable and Peter was there to meet us on arrival. You can hear late night revellers and early morning street cleaning vehicles if you are a light sleeper, but that's exactly the experience you should expect (email hidden)ly exciting city like Barcelona. I wouldn't hesitate to stay there again. Thanks Peter.

  • What a great location! So many great restaurants and bars and a beautiful area to stay in. The place was solid, the bathroom a bit small, but manageable. Peter was very friendly and responsive so overall I would definitely recommend this place.

  • No conocimos a Peter pero en todo momento respondió con rapidez y nos escribió para saber si todo marchaba bien. El apartamento está bien, aunque en mi opinión considero que debería renovarse un poco. La ubicación es excelente, pero no es recomendable para personas que busquen tranquilidad. Por último considero que el apartamento tiene un tamaño adecuado para 2 y no 3 personas, además de que el sofá es bastante duro para ser cama.

  • Peter's apartment is clean, located in a nice area, has high ceilings, a very comfortable bed and a lovely balcony. The friendly housekeeper awaited us on arrival and showed us around the apartment. We had a great stay in Barcelona, Peter was flexible and made sure everything was ok. We definitely recommend; the price, location and state of the apartment are certainly worth it!
