GREAT SUNNY AND NATURAL LIGHTED 30 m2 ROOM FOR 2 GUESTS WITH A QUEEN SIZE BED, 2 READING CHAIRS, 1 CHAISE LONGUE, CD PLAYER, HIGH SPEED WIFI, AC/CENTRAL HEATING. BATHROOM FOR YOUR PRIVATE USE.
I rather stay with locals while travelling to get more of their culture. No best way to learn more about the city and country I m visiting. No way to feel mentality of the locals.
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 !!!

Un accueil chaleureux de la part de Kiko, avec une intéressante discussion autour d'un (ou plusieurs) verre(s) de Cava. Kiko a pris le temps de nous parler de sa ville, des centres d'intérêts, des habitudes locales, ... La chambre est très vaste et confortable, décorée avec délicatesse et beaucoup de goût, et surtout l'appartement est extrêmement bien situé, à 5 mn à pied de la Rambla, et 10 minutes des centres d'intérêt majeurs. Pour les autres, le métro et les bus sont à deux pas, ainsi qu'un parking pour ceux effectuant le voyage en voiture. Seul petit bémol, pour ceux qui comme nous, habitant la campagne, supportent mal le bruit de la rue, des boules quies pourront être utiles. Enfin, pour la soirée du jour de l'an, nous avons trouvé dans la chambre une bouteille de bon vin, ainsi que deux coupes contenant chacune douze grains de raisin, à consommer lors des douze coups de minuit comme le veut la tradition catalane... super adresse donc, qui nous a fait découvrir Barcelone sous un angle très intéressant.
Thanks Kiko for the great hospitality!
We spent 3 days in your lovely apartment, we found it comfortable, bright, and closely situated to the 'Ramblas' scene (still not too close which was great to spent time among the locals as well).
Your advice as well as your willingness to share with us local tips really made the day for us.
All in all this was our first AirBnB experience and we loved every minute, we would definitely recommend staying at Kiko's premises
Kiko's home is great! It's our best experience during Airbnb! His house is charming, it was rebuilt which is designed by himself. Kiko is very patient and nice, he prepared everything we need and give us so many suggestions about Itinerary，restaurants... Of course the house is in a good location, it's near metro station, and we can walk to old town about 15 min. If you stay in Barcelona, no doubt you should leave with Kiko, not only for the room sapce, but also for his hospitable，humorous and attractive.
Staying with Kiko is the best! It's truly why Airbnb provides such an amazing way to meet the locals and stay in such creative places owned by such fascinating people!
The room really IS huge! So, there's way more than enough room for 1 or 2 people to spread out all their stuff. And you have your own nice bathroom to use. And the location is very central in bustling Barcelona. That means a very noisy street, which ALL streets in central Barcelona are (sound from all those people and especially the scooters travels up the very narrow canyons formed by the 5- and 6-story buildings). However, Kiko provides great ways of blocking out both the light and the noise if needed, so you'll sleep well!
And the BEST part is getting to know Kiko himself!! He is very excited to show you the best of Barcelona before you take off to explore, and he is always there (at least in my case) when you get home every night--and he's always super enthusiastic to hear about your day. He's like having an old friend in an amazing city!! I would *definitely* stay with him if (and hopefully when) I make a return trip to Barcelona!!
Wir haben uns bei Kiko rundum wohl gefühlt. Das Zimmer ist wunderschön, sehr sauber und die Wohnung einfach optimal zentral gelegen. Kiko war der perfekte Gastgeber und hat uns tolle Tipps und Ratschläge für Barcelona gegeben! Gerne kommen wir wieder.
Wir waren sehr traurig, dass wir so schnell wieder gehen mussten Kiko!
We found Kiko to be an excellent host. He spent a lot of time with us on arrival going through everything and was very helpful with regard to our travel arrangements in Barcelona. The room is as described, large and in an excellent area for exploring the city either on foot or by means of the public transport services all of which are in close proximity to the room. It is worth bearing in mind that the accommodation is on a busy road and therefore is very noisy at all times day and night. That said the city appears to be busy all the time and would be difficult to find somewhere quiet to stay.
The open top bus tour was a great experience well worth doing. The trip to the Sagrada Familia is a must on your list of places to visit and would strongly recommend booking on line as the ques are very long to buy tickets.
All in all a great place to visit, safe and friendly. Will go back to Barcelona next time for a little longer than the three days we spent there as we ran out of time and missed some things on our list.
Hello Sheelagh, Hope you are doing well and your trip back home was ok. Txs a lot for your nice review. Noise in the old city is almost unavoidable. Probalby living in the country side in a quiet place makes a big different than living in dowtown big citiies. You will be welcome anytime !!!
