Art-Light-Balcony-View of Palace!

Apartment - Private room · Carrer de Floridablanca, Barcelona, Catalonia 08015, Spain

Our bright, clean, and spacious 4 bedroom apartment has one of the most spectacular views of the Palacio on Montjuic. The guest room comfortably fits two, has a private balcony, and is eclectically decorated with Mexican folk art.

The Space

Our large apartment is on the 7th floor of a classic Eixample building with decorative moulding and interesting tile floors. There are high ceilings and windows in every room. The living room and dining room have 2 balconies covered in jasmine and flowers which add to the charm of the place. The room available for rent is bright, clean, spacious, and private. It has double doors that open onto a private balcony with views of the palace on top of Montjuic. Smoking is allowed on the balcony. There is a double bed suitable for one or two guests. The room has been tastefully decorated with Mexican folk art that we collected on our travels there. We have a recently renovated kitchen and 1.5 modern bathrooms. During your stay, the 1/2 bathroom is for your use only. We are a 2 minute walk from Plaza Espanya, 3 different Metro lines, and a multitude of buses. You can get to all of the most sought after attractions within about 15 minutes from here (La Rambla, Sagrada Familia, Parc Guell, the beach). We are located at just steps away from Parc Montjuic, the MNAC museum, and all of the wonderful hikes and gardens there are to explore as well. Directly behind our building, you will find a pedestrian only, tree-lined street, Avenida Mistral, always bustling with Spaniards enjoying outdoor restaurants. Everything you need is within a 2 block radius- the post office, grocery stores, pharmacies, etc. You can be close to the excitement of the city yet be comfortably away from the touristy zones, which you will learn is a huge bonus because things are is calmer, cheaper, and of better quality. Come enjoy Barcelona from our wonderful home. If you happen to have dietary restrictions, we are very knowledgeable about gluten free options. Feel free to ask any questions! We are a 420 friendly household.

Interaction with Guests

Our apartment is designed in such a way that we can have as much or as little contact as the guest desires. Our bedroom is all the way to the back of the apartment and the guest room is in the front. We share a living room, but since we are artists, have an art studio room that we use frequently, leaving the shared spaces free.

The Neighborhood

We love how close our apartment is to Montjuic Park and how easy it is to get anywhere in the city from here. There are some really tasty restaurants and cafes within a few block radius. We are also positioned right by a pedestrian only street that is great for walking down.

Getting around

There are at least 15 different transit options within 1 or 2 blocks from our door (buses, metros, trains) that will get you anywhere in the city or down to the quaint beach towns as well. Sants Estacio, the medium and long distance train station is only 5 blocks from here, or 2 metro stops.

  • We enjoyed our time in Barcelona and Jamie & Cole are great hosts. Their dog, Pirata is a really nice and special dog too :) the location of the house is really good, not far from the Airport and the Metro is close to their home also.

  • Jamie and Cole's place was great! They were super helpful, and I would definitely stay here again.

    March 2014
  • The apartment was wonderful! Good location to most of the tourist attractions, a lot of nice cafes/ bars nearby. Also Jamie and Cole were very nice host, so did their lovely dog;D. I did enjoy my staying in Jamie and Cole's apartment!

    March 2014
  • Really cool place to stay:) Its a looong apartment. I never heard a peep!, my room was on the opposite end from Jamie and Cole's:) Really comfortable place, lots of cool Mexican decor, as well as their own art. Their pooch stole the show though;) I want to keep him!! Friendliest little piggy-dog EVER! Jamie and Cole were really kind, had fantastic advice for the area (COFFEE!!! Ask them where to get coffee and the Best carrot cake you'll ever have:) and made my stay there feel really comfortable:)

    March 2014
  • Jamie and Cole were welcoming hosts and the accommodation was exactly as shown in the pictures. The location was conveniently close to an airport bus transfer. I chose to walk everywhere in Barcelona and would only recommend that if you're up for some long days and tired feet on the way home. In the evening there were never issues with the shared space and the hosts were able to answer any questions I had. It was an overall good stay in an interesting city!

  • Extremely nice, great space, amazing view. Would recommend to all!

    March 2014
  • Jamie and Cole were very awesome. It was our first airbnb experience and they were very responsive and communicative. Their place was clean and tidy. Pirata, their dog, was very funny, sweet and harmless albeit a bit overwhelming for our 1 yr old son. I would recommend their place without hesitation and they were great hosts!! Voila.

  • We had a very nice stay at Jamie and Cole's place. They are welcoming and sweet, the flat is cute, and the area, if not central, is full of transports. The hosts respected completely our privacy, except the dog ;) Good adress to enjoy Barcelona.

    January 2014
  • Jamie and Cole were fantastic hosts! The room was comfortable and warm with their cute and friendly dogs. The space was really clean, artistically decorated and even equipped with a lovely balcony!
    The couple was really helpful for our travel plan and very friendly:)
    We strongly recommend this place especially if you are an art-lover:D

    January 2014
  • We had a lovely stay in the art-light-balcony-vieuw room! The hosts were very considered with the privacy and the comfort of their guests.We appriciated that very much. There is only one downside : the squeaky (email hidden) we did a lot of reading ( witch is nice too, i finished my book ;-) ) The location of the flat is super! You are on walking distance from almost everything and if you are sick of walking...trains, busses(aeroport) are 2 blocks away. Thanks to the lovely panoramic view it doesn't feel like being in the centre of town. We recommend the hosts and their room!

About
Cole and I are in our 30's, and are married. He is a musician and I am an artist. We both teach here in Barcelona. We love this city because it has a very relaxed vibe and there are amazing spaces to ride skateboards, roller skates, and bikes. There is always something culturally going on. We have been here for a year and a half so far, and have no plans on living anywhere else for a while. As hosts, we are welcoming and kind. We often cook at home and spend our evenings doing creative things. We have a French Bulldog named Pirata that will welcome you with a gusto.
