About this listing
Our bright, clean, and spacious 4 bedroom apartment has one of the most spectacular views of the MNAC Palacio on Montjuic. The large living and dining room have tall doors that open onto two balconies.The main bedroom also has a private balcony.
Our large apartment is on the 7th floor of a classic Eixample building with decorative moulding and interesting tile floors. This is the top floor of the building and is very quiet and restful. There are high ceilings and windows in every room which give it a lot of bright light. For sleeping, there are 4 bedrooms, two of which have double beds, and the other two have twin beds (although the room sizes are not small). The bedroom in the front has its own private balcony with a view of the MNAC Palace on Montjuic. The living room and dining room have 2 balconies also, that are covered in plants. Smoking is allowed on the balconies and ash trays are provided. We have a recently renovated kitchen and 1.5 modern bathrooms (.5 meaning that it only has a toilet and sink). 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 and we have a hand-made map with all of our local favorites for you! 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!
You will have access to the whole house, including the balconies in the front as well as the porch in the back.
Interaction with Guests
We will be there to meet you when you arrive. You will receive a guided tour of the apartment with all of our tips. It is a 100 year old building so there are some special tricks :) After that, you will be free to come and go as you please. We will be a phone call away.
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 strolling down.
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 expect that our house guests follow a few simple rules while they are in our home.
1. Having a big, loud party is not an option in our flat. The neighbours will not stand for it. Please respect the neighbours.
2. Smoking is allowed on the balconies only. Please don't smoke indoors.
Bel appartement spacieux et lumineux situé à 5 min à pieds de la place d Espagne et de son métro. En outre le parking fira barcelona est situé de l autre côté de la rue !! Idéal si vous venez en voiture. Quartier calme. L appartement possède un balcon ce qui n est pas négligeable et de splendides plantes grasses !
Accueil très chaleureux.
Jamie et Cole sont de très bons conseils pour les sorties, restaurants, etc...
L'appartement correspond aux photos, il est très propre.
The reservation was canceled 2 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
We had difficulty in finding this place because of the ongoing construction. Location is good to be near the bus stop but far from the tourist spots.
Room is clean. Wifi is good. Two toilets are available, one has no shower though.
Friendly hosts with a cute dog.
Does not allow luggage storage and early check-in.
First of all, we do allow early check in. Our check in time is 3pm, and we said you could check in at 12:00. You and your friends failed to check your email or communicate with us, and showed up at 9am. We had no room to store your bags because we had other guests in our house at that time. When there are no guests, of course we allow people to store their bags for a few hours. A few hours is the key, but you guys wanted to store your bags the day you were to check out from 7:30 am until your train left at 8:00pm in the evening. You did it without even asking if it was ok. You just left them here and we had no way of contacting you. We had to pack up them up, and ended up turning away another guest! One thing to consider is that most AirBnB hosts also live in their home. It is inconvenient for us to have the bags of 3 people in our living room all day. Any hotel in the area would store bags for a fee. It is very important to ask any questions up front and read the rules and regulations that each host writes about their apartment.
Thank you Jamie and Cole for welcoming us into your home and to Barcelona! Your place was easy to locate and comfortable. Your hospitality couldn't have been better!
About the Host, Jamie And Cole
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.
