EVERYTHING is for your private use without sharing with other guests or owner.

It has hot water, gas heating and air conditioning, which will make the stay even more enjoyable.

The apartment is not directly on the street, is in the patio, making it very quiet and peaceful.

The area of Gràcia is popular for artist and bohemian life. It has a wide diversity of people and a big concentration of international restaurants. Gracia itself creates a strange and funny mixture of people, interesting shops, terraces and more!

The apartment is very near to DOWNTOWN and enjoys a magnificent location, you can quickly reach all points of interest in the city. Is very well connected to METRO stop Diagonal (just a few minutes), many BUS stops, and the Paseo de Gracia TRAIN station.

Examples of walking distances:

Underground "Diagonal" - 7 minutes
Paseo de Gracia - 5 minutes
La Pedrera - 10 minutes
Sagrada Familia - 20 minutes
Plaza Catalunya/Ramblas - 25 minutes

If you arrive by plane, train or bus, you can quickly reach the apartment either on foot or by public transport.

High speed WIFI available.

Towels and sheets (no iron) included in the price.

If your desired stay is 7 days or more, ask first for a special offer (depending on season).

  • Alex is a great host, extremely helpful and very attentive. Even if I know barcelona very well, it's been nice to receive Alex's extra tips and suggestions about the area, restaurants, what to see and do. After our arrival at the airport, we had some problems with the luggage's delivery, and we arrived later than expected, so Alex had to wait a lot for receiving us in the flat, but he has been very comprehensive.
    We stayed in the flat 4 nights but I'd have loved to stay more! The flat is clean, nice and quiet; it's the perfect solution for a couple or a small family. We were traveling with our daughter and she was not even 4 months old at that time, but the flat was really comfortable for us and for her too. The location is amazing, I love the "barrio" of Gracia and its cosy streets. In few minutes you can reach all Barcelona's most important attractions, by foot, bus or metro. Cafes, restaurants, shops, markets.... everything is less than 1 minute walking distance from the flat.
    I will suggest Alex's flat to my friends and colleagues, and I will definitely return here in the future. My vote is 10!

  • Alex is a thoughtful and helpful host. Not only is the listing exactly as we expected, Alex even provided a child bed and high chair for our little one. The neighbourhood is perfect for a young family, with a lot of shops and places for our little one to play. We had a terrific experience.

  • Pasamos 4 noches en el piso de Alex y la verdad que estuvimos como en casa. Alex es encantador, muy atento y nos dio muchas recomendaciones de por dónde movernos, comer, lugares interesantes a conocer.
    El piso está muy limpio, la cama es muy cómoda (yo suelo dormir mal y descansé como un bebe), hay mucha luz, en la cocina hay de todo para poder sentirse como en casa.
    En definitiva, como somos unos enamorados de Barcelona volveremos y por supuesto nos iremos a casa de Alex :)
    Lo recomiendo al 100%

  • Our stay in Alex's apartment in the heart of Barcelona was exceptional. Alex was very prompt with communication before we arrived in Barcelona and greeted us at the apartment on the morning of our arrival. He was wonderful in sharing great places to eat, mapping out suggested areas to visit and was a wealth of information for our few days in this beautiful city.

    The fact that the apartment is wifi and free made life so much easier for us. I will call Alex a genius as he was able to rig a way for our electric converter to work in his apartment as his outlets were not conducive to our converter. I was a little worried about that since I had my own curling iron, ipad and iphone that all needed electricity. We left for the day and when we returned, Alex had managed to be creative enough to allow our converter to work in his electrical outlets. Bravo Alex!!!

    The apartment was fully stocked with everything anyone could need. The kitchen was supplied with every type of pot, pan, dishes, glasses. . .you name it, it was there. If you would choose to cook any type of meal, everything was available. The apartment was clean and worked out perfectly for the 3 of us. It would easily sleep 6 people if need be with a pull out in the living area. The beds were comfortable, linens clean, and he supplied each of us with our own towel sets for washing.

    The apartment is close to one of the most popular areas of Barcelona, Passieg de Gracia. . .amazing shops, restaurants, bakeries, transportation. The apartment is set off of a main street and in a residential area so there was a little bit of noise occasionally, but nothing that was out of the ordinary for a neighborhood with residents.

    I would highly recommend Alex's apartment. It has everything to make a vacation, whether long or short very comfortable. Thank you Alex for making our stay in Barcelona so wonderful.

  • The place is amazing and Alex is great and very responsive! I actually live in Barcelona nearby and got this place for my parents who were visiting for a week (my place is too small to host them). They absolutely loved everything about the apartment, from the amenities to the quiet to the great location. I definitely recommend it!

  • We've been in 3 differents apartments from airbnb and none of them were so nice as the Alex's apartment and reception so far. Her wife received us with a map of the city and the house area so we could understand where we were and the market, restaurants, etc. It made the difference. The apartment was very clean and the sheets and towels were smelling so good! I think we were lovely spoiled by them! Highly recommended!

  • This apartment was exactly what we hoped it would be. It has everything you need for a stay and some thoughtful touches (e.g. umbrella, shopping trolley). The area itself is great. Very quiet with a nice community feel to it but within an easy walk of many of the main sights. Alex met us on arrival and, although we were a bit late, still spent a lot of time with us going over information about the flat, the local area and Barcelona as a whole. We tried a couple of his recommended restaurants and they were excellent. Communication with him was good from the moment we made our booking. We would highly recommend this place. Another great Air BnB experience.

  • There is not much more that I can ad, it is a nice and clean apartment and the neighborhood is very nice (and safe!). Lots of bars, restaurants, nice little shops. There is a lovely enclosed market place nearby where you can buy too much nice and fresh food.... We had breakfast every morning in the sun on the balcony.
    The apartment has everything you need and Alex gave us a lot of useful information.

  • We spent a perfect week in Alex' appartment. Travelling with two small children, we didn't expect it to be fully equipped with baby bed, baby chair, ... thanks a lot; things made life much easier. The appartment is nice, charming, cozy, extremely well located, we loved it. Alex is a perfect host, gave us a lot of recommendations and was easy to communiyate with. We definitely recommend his place.
