About This Listing
Hello from sunny Barcelona!
Thanks for stopping by to take a look at our room. This double room lives in a lovely recently completely renovated old style Spanish house, with very high ceilings and a little balcony that faces a corner street (read: lots of light) in the quieter heart of the city, Eixample. We are walking distance from Plaza Espanya, Plaza Catalunya, Montjuic, Poble Sec, the trendy Raval neighborhood and you can even reach Las Ramblas and the Gotic neighbourhood from here by foot in 15 minutes at a leisurely pace.
The area is very safe, with plenty of bars and restaurants that all come equipped with lovely outdoor terraces to spend your evenings over wine and tapas in. We obviously have our favourites (like the free Andalucian tapas with every beer place two streets away) which we will be more than happy to tell you about. There's also super markets, both the organic and non-organic kinds, just steps away from the front door if you'd rather stay in and cook. There's two metro stations 5 minutes away from the house (Urgell and St Antoni) to get you to those slightly further away places such as Parc Guell or Barceloneta. We're also ideally located to get to and from the airport with the Aerobus stop being on the adjacent street to us.
The room comes equipped with a double bed, floor to ceiling windows overlooking a quiet street crossing with two very nice big trees outside the house to give you some privacy and green. There's a cupboard in the room that is empty and available to you. You also get exclusive use of a bathroom with shower. There's a brand new fan in the room to keep things cool and you will have full access to the kitchen when you need it. The building also comes equipped with an elevator.
The room also has an attached balcony where you could sit and enjoy your wine in the afternoon sun.

We are a couple in our 30's, our dog's a bit younger, that have very international backgrounds but have lived here for a number of years and would be happy to share our stories, advice and suggestions on the nicer touristy things to do, and the not so touristy things - and we will even share a few local secrets. We are also always just a phone call or text message away if you need anything.

Great experience! Me and my husband used Airbnb for the first time and we loved it. Ben and his girlfriend are very friendly and outgoing people. And they have an awesome dog! They gave us tips about the local area and the best places to eat. We had a lot of space and privacy and we felt very welcomed. I would definitely recommend the place and would go back there again.
Fantastic experience! Ben, Daniela, and their dog were excellent hosts. They provided invaluable tips in the city and a welcoming atmosphere. Like all their other positive reviews, we found the apartment really nice and clean. The location is tough to beat given how central it is and close (2 blocks) from the Aérobus stop (also a fantastic service in Barcelona!) When we come back to Barcelona, we'd stay with them again.
We had a wonderful time in Barcelona thanks to Ben. His flat is located at a great location, only a few blocks away from the bus station (aerobus). He was kind and had a flexible check out time, which was great for us since our flight is in the evening. His flat was very clean and simple. Overall we had a great experience.
We liked Ben and his flat. We'd arrived very late evening, but host waited and met us. Clean room, tall ceilings, balcony with view of cozy Barcelona crossroad (cafes, shops).
Convenient place: between Rambla and Monjuick. Bus station to airport (airbus) is on the next quarter (about 150 meters). From airport: in two quarters.
It is is very pleasure just to walk in area of Sant Antony.
I would like to back in this room again.
The first and the best!The place of Ben was great!It was our first time as airbnb users and both Ben and Dani were very discreet, polite, warm and helpful at the same time!the room and services were as described and their place is just so easy to find, and so close to the city center (actually,it is in the city center). After a fast inland trip,we returned to the room for one more night,where they had allowed us to leave our luggage for all the days we were away!We had the chance to share their very friendly company over wine, making us feel a bit locals and knowing them better :-) We highly recommend Ben's place and we ourselves would definitely choose it,if we travel to sunny Barcelona again!
We have spent 3 nights at Ben's place and however he wasn't at home, Daniela was a perfect host for us. The flat is very close to the Placa Catalunya and La Rambla so we could just go walking without spending on the metro. They give us towels (so more space in the bag for presents) also let us to use a heater, since the night was a bit cold. Also we could use the kitchen and had a small bathroom just for us. Also the Aerobus has a busstop just a few minutes from there. I would choose their place again!
