lovely double room ☼ NEAR THE PORT!

Apartment - Private room · Carrer dels Abaixadors, Barcelona, Catalonia 08003, Spain

The Space

We have a beautiful, very Spanish apartment in the heart of Barcelona. If you want to feel more like a local than like a tourist, you came to the right place :)

In our apartment we have two rooms available for airbnb guests, besides the one described above, there is a second one a bit smaller and cheaper, described here: https://www.airbnb.pl/rooms/1307247
Please take a look which suits you better.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

APARTMENT

This is a spacious, just renewed, old-style apartment with typical high ceilings and very unique, vintage mosaic floor. It has big windows and three charming balconies where we grow plants.

2 out of 3 rooms are available for guests. You can freely use a common space which is a living room, well-equipped kitchen (tea/coffee provided) and a bathroom with shower.
A high speed Internet/WiFi and air-conditioning (although the place stays very cool even in the heat) are also at your disposal.

We can provide you with some maps, guides and personal advices (that we have a lot:)) so that you truly experience Barcelona's goodies. We'll give you the best recommendations about live music, jazz or flamenco jam sessions, local bars and salsa dance clubs. Good food is also on our spot.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

YOUR ROOM

This is a big room, very smart and cosy, with a little balcony overlooking a small pedestrian street and a peak of Santa Maria del Mar church :) You will have a double bed with a super comfortable mattress (important!). One part of the bed can be slid under another, so that you get more space daytime. It has stylish, dark furniture and a beautiful, jungle-print lamp. All the walls have been recently painted, so the room's clean and fresh.

Clean bed linens, duvets, pillows and towels are obviously provided.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

NEIGHBOURHOOD

The apartment is located in a beautiful BORN neighbourhood - probably the most adored one by the visitors. It has been known as a famous sailors' destination, locals used to say 'roda el mon i torna al Born' which means 'go around the world and return to the Born'. We personally think this is the museum of chocolate that brings people back in here ;)

The location is just perfect:
• all kinds of public transport are easily available- buses, nightbuses, subway stop (Jaume I), a bike rental just round the corner,.... You can even take a boat if you like- it's only 400 meters away from our gate ;)
• just a step far from an impressive gothic church, Santa Maria del Mar (you can literally see the peak from the window and hear the church bells in the flat)
• 2 minutes walking far from the old port (Port Vell) and a famous Barcelona's head sculpture of Joan Miró at Passeig de Colom
• 10 minutes walking from the famous Barceloneta beach, all full of chiringuitos (the bars just by the sea) with great great coctails
• 5 minutes walking from the green Parc de la Ciutadella with Cascada designed with help of young Gaudi
• 5 minutes walking from the Palau de la Música Catalana, a stunning concert hall, high point of Catalan Modernisme
• 5 minutes from La Rambla, Spain's most-known boulvard, linking Placa Catalunya with the Christopher Columbus monument
• one street far from another must seen neighbourhood - Barri Gótic

And now... just forget about a long sleep in this city!
• You will be amazed by the amount of the great local BARS in this zone. They are seriously everywhere- the very Spanish ones with traditional tapas (snacks), Brazilian, Argentinian ones,... and maaany others.
• For those who enjoy wild parties there's a bunch of clubs and after-hours bars.
• We also have a range of GOOD FOOD spots to recommend, including the small lunch places with great bocadillos (sandwiches) or the best! pizza slices and those offering real Spanish cuisine for a whole delicious dinner.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

★ Please mind that you will share a flat with us (or one of us) and probably someone else as we're offering two rooms, so we all need to be simply respectful (look at-> house rules).

★ At least one of us will be here during your stay, so we'll be always here to help you in case of any trouble.

★ If you already feel you will like our place, feel free to write a word about you in a message- it's always nice to know a thing about the guest before their arrival:)

Sending you saludos, abrazos & besos

  • Super accueil de Basia et Kryszka qui se mettent e' quatre pour vous recevoir et proposer des idées de sorties, du thé, café, l'accès à un casier du frigo etc...

    Attention la cabine de douche est très petite et ne peut absolument pas recevoir une personne de grande corpulence.

    Appartement très propre et accueillant.

    Idéalement situé en pleine centre ville, dans le super quartier El Born.

  • All the positive feedback you read about these two lovely hostesses is 100% true! This was my first time renting a private room - usually I opt for an entire apartment. But I'm actually happy I didn't! If you have any reservations about staying with someone else- these girls melt all that away. They have plenty of local suggestions and are very happy people to be around. : )

    My flight got switched around, and I ended up arriving around 1am - but that was no problem. They greeted me at the apartment and I immediately felt welcome. They even took me out to an awesome music club!

  • Two very friendly and hospitable sisters who make you feel at home right away. They are lovely people to stay with and I can't wait to come and visit Barcelona again! 5*

  • Basia & Kryszka have been super welcoming, happy and positive hosts, friendly and willing to help and give tips to better discover the city if requested.

    The flat is really nice and clean, Barcelona-style with the tiles on the ground.

    I would recommand to stay at their place for any stay in the city! ;)

  • The house is quite cozy and comfortable. The girls are very friendly and openand gave me priceless recommendations on places to visit and shows to see. The kitchen and bathroom are small but well equipped and very clean. The location is perfect. I only had to walk for about 5 minutes to reach the picasso museum which was one of my main goals during the trip. Also, Placa Reale which is a main location for night life was walking distance from the house as is las ramblas. The train station is a 5 minute walk away and although the house is on a pretty quiet street, there is a large busy avenue nearby which makes it easy to find taxis if needed. Also very close to many restaurants and LOTS of shopping.

  • Basia and Kryszka are really really friendly hosts!! Though we didnt got the chance to meet them in person, but they were so helpful in giving us suggestion and providing help when we had problems!

    The space was really artistic-designed and spirit-relaxing, especially if you are also a lover of Buana Vista Social Club :P

    Not to mention it is located (email hidden) where we could spent many days walking around:D

    We are certainly visit it again in the summer if we had chance:)

  • Basia & Kryszka are great hosts, very easy going and helpful. I had fantastic stay in their place and can fully recommend to everyone!

    The location is perfect and easily reachable.
    Both girls are very friendly and lots of fun!

    I will definitely stay at their place again next time I visit Barcelona :)

  • Loved it!!!! Great location (close walk to the beach) and cute apartment. Also very friendly :) would definitely recommend!

    October 2013
  • Kryszka and Basia were fantastic hosts! The location was very central to everything I wanted to see and I ended up walking most of the time as opposed to taking the bus or the metro (although Park Guell was a little too far to walk to). I would absolutely stay again if I end up back in Barcelona.

    October 2013
  • Basia was a great host - she was very welcoming and made us feel right at home. Her apartment is in a fantastic location in El Born and we really loved exploring the neighborhood. The room is smallish for two people but was fine for us and the shared living space & kitchen are well set up. A good budget option if you want to stay centrally and are happy to share accommodation with others.
