About This Listing
You will be renting a gorgeous sunny dble room in the heart of Gracia. Although just a short walk from the centre, it's a different world. Popular with artists & a generally bohemian crowd. The streets are lined w/ boutiques & pretty cafe terraces.
The apartment is situated on a charming pedestrian street, 1 minute walk away from the metro with a direct line to Las Ramblas, Plaça Catalnuya and the Gotico in less than 10 minutes. It's close to an impressive fresh food market and the streets are lined with independent shops.
Every August Gracia is also home to Barcelona's most famous street festival.
Perfect for couples, small groups or independent travellers, this is the ideal base from which to explore Barcelona in style.
Gracia, although just one stop up from Passeig de Gracia, it feels like a whole different world.
Popular with artists and a generally bohemian crowd. The streets are lined with pretty cafe terraces and countless squares.
One of Gracia's best features is that there are not so many tourists here, so you can discover something a little bit new and diverse.
I take guest satisfaction very seriously. Whatever you need; from fresh sheets to restaurant recommendations or local insights, I'm on-hand to help however I can.
From Mar 1 - May 31, 2015 the minimum stay is 2 nights.
My wife and I stayed for 3 nights at Nacho's place, and it was great. Nacho and Rosa are wonderful hosts. We arrived from a cruise ship and attended the apartment at 8 am. There was other guests the but Nacho allowed us to leave our luggage with him until we checked in later. That way we were got to visit some sights in the meantime. Nacho and Rosa gave us advise on what to see and what restaurants to go to. Our room was nice and the apartment was good. The neighbourhood was very nice and had a great Spanish feel. It was close to the attractions but was not full of tourists. There are numerous bars and restaurants in the area. One thing to keep in mind, the neighborhood does not sleep! There is constant activity on the streets which means if you are light sleeper, you might have difficulty. I recommend this location if you are looking for and authentic feel in Barcelona. And Nacho is a wonderful host, as can be seen from previous posts.
Such a lovely place. Nacho was very inviting and we got lost the first day and said he would even meet us at the train. Our flight was delayed an hour and we were lost for an hour (because we listened to Google maps instead of nachos simple directions..big mistake on our part) so we were 2 hours late and he was so very nice about it. Even emailed us recommendations. Room is a bit smaller than we thought but having a private bathroom was awesome.
Needless to say we were very pleased at how accommodating nacho was, and this was our first airbnb experience and it was pleasurable.
Also! The location was superb. So so easy to get to places from there. Our friends had their own bnb somewhere else and they always ended up meeting us at ours since everything was there! 3
Geat location, v good organisation for pick up keys, clean apatment with everything you need in it!
We loved our 4-day stay at Nacho´s and Rosa´s apartment. The location is excellent and corresponded to our excpectations in every respect - the metro station is close (but not too close), there are lots of cafes and restaurants to choose from and the narrow streets are fairly quiet in the night-time. We have nothing but good things to say about the flat as well. The rooms were nice and clean. The same goes to the bathroom, bedsheets and towels. Also the balcony was very cosy, with flowers and plants everywhere. We wished we could have spent more time there, but with the short period we had in our hands, we were too busy running around the diverse Barcelona from the morning till the sunset and beyond :).
Nacho and Rosa are wonderful people, who respect your privacy and take their obligations as hosts seriously. Thank you.
Nacho and Rosa are great hosts. The apartment location is excellent, few steps to metro and amazing neighborhood. I highly recommend!
Das Zimmer war einfach und sauber. Das Bad war auch völlig okay und sauber. Die Gegend ist super, kleine Geschäfte, Bars und Restaurants. Ganz nah an der U-Bahn-Station Fontana, von wo aus man überall super hin kommt.
Nacho und Rosa als Gastgeber waren sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit. Wir haben uns sehr zu Hause gefühlt.
Nacho and Rosa were very welcoming, relaxed and friendly. They provided really good list of places to eat and drink around the city. The flat is very clean and comfortable, and the location is perfect - next to a metro on a pedestrian street, in a nice neighbourhood with shops/bars/restaurants, but the street is quiet at night. The bedroom itself is a little bit small but comfortable enough, and the lounge area is large if you want to chill out.
About the Host, Nacho
I've lived in Barcelona for 18 years and I really love this city. I've got a great understanding of what you need to make the most out of your time here and will be happy to recommend my favourite places.
Although I'm new to AirBnb I've travelled a lot through my work making documentaries and have made many friends along the way and I'm looking forward to meeting new people from all around the world.
I am currently renting either a double room or the entire apartment. It's a perfect place for couples or individual travellers in a great location to see Barcelona. I'll be happy to answer any questions, so please get in touch.
