Welcome to my gorgeous City-Apartment in Pl.Cataluña, one of the most characteristic places of Barcelona!
The apartment is perfectly adapted for short-term-living, it contains all necessities and luxuries to satisfy your stay. Newly renovated, it keeps the delicate balance in between antique building structures, typical for Barcelona housing, and modern design comfort. By the choice of natural colors, I managed to create a space inviting to relax and feel home.

  • Great apartment in a good location, little guidebook was helpful too. Downside was that there was incredibly noisy works going on in the next building so had a fairly poor nights sleep but nothing that the host could have done to change that. Had some problems sending emails using the (website hidden) address so would recommend others send messages regarding arrival times etc via the app.

    Response from Nadia:

    The building works are during the day starting from 9am - 6pm, hopefully soon they will finish. At night it is not allowed to work making noise because the city hall is really strict about the rest of the citizens.
    It is important to get to know the arrival time in advance so the host can plan and organize to be there to welcome the guests. Leaving this detail for last minute, and calling once you are at the door of the apartment, never can be the more efficient solution for any of the parts.

  • Great apartment in such a wonderful location! We loved how we were easily able to walk to so many restaurants and local sites from this apartment. It was a little warm in Barcelona during our stay so having an air conditioner was wonderful! Very spacious and truly was our home away from home while in Barcelona!

  • This was our first international Airbnb and it couldn't have gone better. Nadia was great! She checked in with me about a month or so before our arrival and sent us an info packet with great places to eat and visit. On the day of our arrival, she met us outside the apartment and gave us a quick tour. It was very clean and well decorated, in a very central location and seemed quite safe :) I appreciated how laid back and friendly she was and she was always quick to reply to emails/texts.

  • Nadia's apt. is loacted very centrally. The house was clean and the living room and bedrooms were very comfortable. We enjoed our stay. Nadia communicated well with us and was flexible with the checkin time. We were able to leave our luggage before the checkin time that helped us a lot. There were couple of issues - the clother dryer did not work. the shower door did not close properly and some amenities in the bathroom were lacking. It is nice to have shower soap/gel, shampoo because travellers do not carry those items especially with the airline restrictions. We enjoyed our one day stay and the location could not be better.

  • L'appartement portais le titre "Best Location" et il le mérite! Je ne dirais pas que c'est le meilleur car je ne suis pas fin connaisseur de la ville mais :
    1) il est bien situé
    2) il est très accueillant, bien décoré, spacieux et au frais!
    3) Nadia la propriétaire est très sympathique

You much go!!

  • Nadia's apartment is so beautifully decorated and very comfortable to stay in. It's so close to everything you will need on your visit to Barcelona. Nadia was very helpful and settled us in well. We had a fantastic stay and managed to fit 6 of us in her apartment with it still being comfortable!
