This room is a large (26m2), luminous, high ceiling room, characterized by warm orange elements and modern leather furniture, creating a great atmosphere. The room consists of a sleeping area as well as a chill/sitting area and has air conditioning/central heating.
The sleeping area has a double bed with a BoConcept mattress, along with 2 night stands, a leather footstool and a designer armchair. A sofa bed with a chaise longue, an LED-lit mirror and ample storage space can be found in the seating area.
The kitchen is shared and may be used by all guests during the time of their stay to prepare breakfast/lunch. In case you would like to prepare dinner as well during your stay, please let me know.
The apartment has two bathrooms, one with shower and another one with bath tub. Please note that none of the rooms have a private bathroom attached to it, so both bathrooms are shared (and cleaned daily).
Interaction with Guests
I will be present at the moment guests check in, as I do not live at the apartment myself. In general, I stop by the apartment every day to check if everything's alright and to answer any question guests might have. If I am not around, you can always reach me on my cell phone or through Airbnb.
I have created a short guide with tips and tricks, which can be found in each room. But in case you have any specific question, please do not hesitate to contact me directly.
Why this room in this apartment?
Location, location and design furniture!!!
This spacious 165 sq meter (530 ft) Modernist apartment is located on the 4th floor (accessible by elevator) in the heart of Barcelona.
Everything that you would need for a great visit is right downstairs from your safe and comfortable ‘local home’.
You will experience endless shopping, dining, entertainment and culture within a 1 to 5 minute walk from the apartment building. Literally around the corner: famous shopping streets like Paseo de Gracia & Rambla de Catalunya, the 2 famous Gaudi houses (Casa Batlló & La Pedrera), many fabulous restaurants and trendy nightlife venues.
Definitely one of the advantages of this apartment, is its location: it's the perfect base to get to every point in Barcelona. The following - and most important - metro lines are in 5 min walking distance:
L1 (Red) Universitat/Plaza Catalunya
L2 (Purple) Universitat
L3 (Green) Paseig de Gracia
L4 (Yellow) Paseig de Gracia
Although you need to go up a couple of blocks, the L5 (Blue, Diagonal) is within a 10 min walk.
Train stations Paseig de Gracia and Plaza de Catalunya are closeby: 5-8 minute walk.
There are lots of bus stops near the apartment, including the Aerobus (from and to the airport) and the tourist bus stop (hop on hop off).
Other Things to Note

The check-in time is flexible, but check-ins before 12:00pm (noon) are depending on whether there are any guests checking out on the day of your arrival. Please note that check-ins after 20:00pm have a surcharge of 20 euros and those after 22:00pm have a surcharge of 40 euros, which is paid in cash upon arrival.
Check-out is at 11:00am but if you have an afternoon/early evening flight, you can leave your luggage in the apartment and come back later to pick it up. In case the entire apartment is rented out on your day of departure, it will not be possible to leave your luggage but I am able to provide you with alternatives. Just be sure to communicate this to me and do not leave your luggage somewhere else in the building unattended.
When leaving the apartment, please ensure you have switched off all the lights, air conditioning, fan or any other electrical appliances you do not need while you are away.
I do not charge a cleaning fee but as I always make sure to welcome you in a clean apartment, I expect guests to leave the apartment as clean as possible when they leave. This also means cleaning up after your selves in the kitchen and bathrooms and taking the trash outside.
Both linens and towels are provided to you and are included in the price. Please note that these are not beach towels, it is not allowed to bring them with you outside. If you plan on going to the beach, please be sure to bring your own towels.
Vincent was een geweldige gastheer. Hij gaf ons allerlei eetadresjes en ahndige tips. We communiceerden voornl. via AirBnb waarbij hij steeds razendsnel terug antwoordde. De ligging is zeer centraal gelegen en de buurt niet al te druk. Alle belangrijke faciliteiten zijn binnen makkelijke wandelafstand. Zeker een adresje dat ik zal aanraden bij vrienden en doe zo voort Vincent!
Barcelona on huippukaupunki ja Vincentin tarjoama majoitus epäilemättä parasta mitä kaupungissa on tarjolla!
Vuokraamamme huone on avara, valoisa, hyvin varusteltu ja todella hyvällä maulla sisustettu. Yhteiskäytössä olevat kylpyhuoneet ja keittiö ovat nekin huippukunnossa. Vähän kuin olisi asunut hotellissa, mutta kuitenkin kotona!
Asunnon keskeinen sijainti ja hyvät kulkuyhteydet tekevät siitä oivan tukikohdan kaupunkilomalle. Asunto on toisaalta kaiken keskellä, mutta silti sopivan rauhallisen kadun varrella. Kävelyetäisyydeltä löytyy lukuisia loistavia tapas-ravintoloita sekä ainakin pari paikkaa, joissa voit nauttia brunssista pitkän kaavan mukaan.
Vincent otti meidät vastaan ja oli paikalla, kun luovutimme huoneen. Laukut saimme jättää lähtöpäivänä asuntoon säilöön. Vincent antoi myös todella hyvät ja kattavat vinkit lähellä olevista ravintoloista, kaupungin tapahtumista ja nähtävyyksistä!
Tyylikäs asunto, loistava isäntä, cinco estrellas!
Vincent is a great host and provided us with several recommendations for things to do in Barcelona (restaurants, street festivals, ) and also places to avoid!!! The location is so central that we could walk everywhere, whether down to the beach or up to Gracia. The rooms are very well furnished and spacious.

I believe the most important thing you need to know about me is that I treat my guests the way I like to be treated: as friends, respecting privacy but always ready to help out!
I am a life-enjoying traveler and have visited over more than 43 countries (both budget and high-end). My favorite travel destinations are Cuba and Asia in general. I have been living in Barcelona for 13 years so I'm full of 'tips & tricks'.
I like art, dining, photography, martial arts, shopping and a good night out, all of which can be found close to our apartment.
I have been living in Spain (Madrid/Barcelona) for 14 years (ex-expat) and I really enjoy the Mediterranean lifestyle you can find in Barcelona.
Life motto (as requested by airbnb):
Flow with the Go
