About This Listing
Typical Barcelona apartment from the late nineteen century. The piano living room for my guests with a 6 meters long couch to relax after the long days in the street. There is two nice balconies to sit and take the air or enjoy a cigarette.

Interaction with Guests
I'm always pleased to help my guests to enjoy the city and make them feel at home.
Eixample Esquerre was designed in the mid nineteen century as the new residential area for the large Catalan bourgeoisie during industrialization time. Is a perfect mix between residential and office area.
Surrounded by some of the most beautiful avenues and the fascinating Art Nouveau buildings is an exquisite place to enjoy the real barcelona life.
Walking distance to the most of monuments, museums and the super crowded Historical Quarter.
10 minutes walking of the hotspot of GAYXAMPLE

Other Things to Note

Being respectfully with other guests preventing noises or loud speaking specially during the night and early mornings is the most important rule.
Kitchen able to be used only during normal hours.

Mario's flat is located in Eixample, just south of Avenida Diagonal. The location is easily within walking distance of many bars and restaurants, and it is about a 15 minute walk to the subway (although I'm sure you could find a bus stop nearer). We arrived in town very late and were able to pick the keys up from a nearby restaurant. The other guests were a pleasure to meet and were able to provide some good recommendations on places to visit and bars and clubs to enjoy. If passing through Barcelona again, I would definitely stay there again!
My experience at Casanova House was very pleasant. Mario's roommates were very helpful from the beginning until my last day. The apartment is centrally located to everything, the neighborhood is nice and feels safe. There are many great bars, cafes and restaurants walking distance from the property. I felt very comfortable during my stay. Communication went smoothly, the internet is good.
Mario was very accommodating, especially when we wanted to stay an extra night at his place because we fell in love with Barcelona. His flat is centrally located to many bars, restaurants, and shopping. The flat was clean and ready for us when we arrived. Highly recommend.
I had a great time staying at Mario's- the location was safe and pleasant, the house was quiet, comfortable and tidy. Mario was one of the friendliest people I've ever met, very charming and made you feel at home.
My sister and I spent a week in Barcelona and stayed at Mario's beautiful apartment. The apartment is very centrally located and has a sweet little balcony where you can have breakfast or drink a delicious wine. Our room was clean and we felt very comfortable after a long day in the city. Mario's flat is huge: he even has a living room for his guests. It also has a long corridor, patterned floor tiles, and antique decoration which make his apartment more unique and gorgeous. We met Mario at the last day we stay, he is so sweet, tried his best to make everyone happy!
Would definitely recommend this place!
Mario was a great host for us, although we didnt see eachother very often, he was very hospitable towards me and my friend. Whenever we needed something or had a question he was there!
The appartment itself was amazing as well, the images didnt lie!
We had a very nice stay in Barcelona, and we could recommand Mario to everybody!
