The Space

I dont like staying in hotel rooms, no way to meet locals which is what I look for to get more of their culture. No way to learn more about the city and country I m visiting. No way to feel mentality of the locals. Therefore I also choose privates rooms to stay for my trips.

Before you visit Barcelona I suggest to read this two books, historic novels based on real facts. It may help you to understand better our city and get much more while walking through the different areas:
" The Cathedral of the Sea" by Idelfonso Falcones.
" Die toten Gassen von Barcelona" by Stefanie Kremser.
Enjoy it !!!

  • Our host was a wonderful person providing us with a list of numerous suggestions re sightseeing, restaurants, and anything else we were interested in. Overall, he made us feel at home and enhanced the whole city experience. The room itself is extremely spacious, clean to exceptional standards and part of a beautiful renovated flat in the old part of the city. The latter is a colourful neighbourhood filled with numerous restaurants, bars, and museums that felt more lively compared to the new city. In summary, I would highly recommend the above room and have been delighted to have met Kiko, a true local!

  • Kiko was a most welcoming host. I truly felt at home. He cooked dinner and invited me one evening, and then took me to a favorite tapas place where I could treat him for a change. His information on Barcelona was excellent and he was willing to share a lot of his knowledge. The room itself was wonderful and lived up to any expectations I might have had. I loved the neighborhood - Raval - which is still mostly in the old style of architecture (when they were redoing the city at various times, they always ran out of money when they got to this area. In the long run this is the best possible thing that could happen. The streets are narrow, mostly pedestrian only. every place on every story on the street has a small balcony (see photos) which is good for plants, getting some air, or discreetly drying some laundry.
    I could not ask (email hidden) than Kiko. I suggest that hosts say enough about themselves honestly so that guests have some basis on which to choose. I invariably have found excellent hosts, and it is usually because of what they say about themselves. That gives me a basis for a choice - whether it is for privacy, congeniality, knowledge, or just extra money for the rent - honestly knowing about the host helps immensely. I loved that Kiko is a native of Barcelona and is willing to share his knowledge with his guests. I also respect the boundaries and the separation of space he outlines. This was a terrific experience for me. Barcelona became more than just a home for the Gaudi work, which is reason enough to visit. But why not ask for and get more?

  • Kiko was an amazing host. I (email hidden) during one of my conference trips. It was nice to catch up with him at the end of a long day at the conference. He patiently marked the interesting parts of the town that were within walkable distance in a map. I had a great time visiting these spots.

    The house is located bang in the center of the city. There are loads of places within walkable distance (30mins). The subway stations are closeby. This is as convenient as one can expect.

    Both the bedroom and the bathroom were clean and beautiful. The house has a warm cozy feeling to it.

  • Kiko's apartment was everything I hoped it would be for my time in Barcelona. Clean, cosy and close to all the important places. Kiko himself was a very friendly and informative host, who helped me out with places to go and other useful information to make my stay in Barcelona as easy and enjoyable possible.
    Tnx Kiko

  • The room was great, and full of stylish decorative touches which I appreciated. Kiko (email hidden) whom I found to be very informative about Barcelona. The location of Kiko's apartment is also convenient, being within walking distance of the Gothic Quarter and Poble Sec.

  • Sehr zentrales und schönes Zimmer im lebendigsten Stadtteil von Barcelona el Raval. Perfekt um die Stadt zu erkunden. Viele gute Restaurants(innerhalb von 5 Minuten Gehdistanz gibt es zBsp. 5 vegetarische Restaurants), Boutiquen, schöne Innenhöfe und Metrostation gleich vor der Haustür.
    Kiko ist eine perfekter Gastgeber und hat mir viel über die Satdt und die Geschichte erzählen können. Sehr angenehm ich komme auf jeden Fall wieder.

    May 2014
  • Accueil fabuleux et chambre très cosy.
    Nous étions avec notre bébé de 6 mois et Kiko s'est démené pour qu'elle est tout son confort (lit...)
    L'appartement dans un immeuble ancien avec beaucoup de cachet, a été rénové avec beaucoup de goût.
    Pour ne rien gâcher, il est idéalement placé permettant de quasi tout visiter à pied.
    On a juste envie de revenir :-)
    Un grand merci à Kiko
