The apartment is located in Via Laietana street, just in the Gothic Quarter; the historical centre and the oldest part of the city of Barcelona . Some of the most interesting places of this neighbourhood of Barcelona are: the Cathedral, the Church of Santa Maria del Pi and the squares (the Plaza del Rei, the plaza Real,the plaza del Pi and La Plaza Sant Jaume which is close to the apartment. The Gothic Quarter is going down from Plaça Catalunya to the Ramblas, You will be surrounded by streets and squares full of stores, street-cafes, terraces, bars and restaurants.
The metro station “Jaume I” (yellow line) and few buses stop, with a direct bus ride to Barceloneta beach. Just three minutes walking from Plaza Cataluña, this apartment is perfectly located for the touristic areas along Las Ramblas, the shops of Paseo de Gracia, the bohemian Born, or the lively markets of La Boquería and Santa Catarina.
The apartment has 280m2, 5 single rooms, 2 bathrooms, living room, kitchen and a balcony. It has central heating, internet connection, lift and balcony with views.
The entire flat is equipped and furnished.
In the apartment, whose size allows an independent life, live also Albiol, artist and translator, who is often travelling, his father Lluis, a very cool man who lives in his own space and his wife.
We have a lot experience to host people from around the world. We are friendly and, of course, very honest.
The room was OK but it was not very easy to get into the apartment, since Roger did not inform the number of the apartment, only the house number on the street. There are no names in the buzzer downstairs so impossible to know which one to ring. This was despite me contacting him in advance to ask how to find the place (no answer to SMS, but later answered my email). Luckily I was able to find his number and make an international call to his mobile, and luckily he happened to answer the phone. I hope othes will be as lucky as I was!
Superbe accueil de la maman, du papa de Roger et de Albione son frère. Appartement ayant un vrai caractère, la chambre était très bien et très au calme. L'appartement est très bien situé, proche de tout. Un merci particulier à Albione qui m'a accompagnée et m'a fait découvrir des endroits intéressants dans Barcelone que je n'aurai pas vus sans sa compagnie.
L’appartement est très bien situé dans un quartier connu pour ses petites rues étroites et anciennes, ce qui crée une ambiance intime. L’hôte et sa famille, d’une grande gentillesse, étaient toujours prêts à faire de leur mieux pour m’accommoder.
Durante el poco tiempo que estuve, me sentí muy cómodo y bien. La familia es encantadora, alegre, atenta y sobre todo muy educada.
You cant ask for a better location: its right in the heart of Barcelona. Roger's mother, who hosted me, is an amazing woman and did everything in her power to make me feel welcome and at home. Truly a great host and a sweetheart!
The room I had was very basic: a bed, a desk/chair, a set of shelves and wifi. That's usually all I need when I travel, so it was more than enough. The room was facing an inner patio, which kept street noise to minimum, although you can still hear church bells far in the distance, which can be quite soothing. Bed was comfortable and linen was clean.
Bathroom is shared among all guests. Shower head kept falling down which was a minor annoyance. I am sure Roger will fix it for his future guests.
Two things I'd like to mention is that its quite an old apartment and I got the sense of it only once I got there. And despite paying a very affordable rate, it would have been nice if the floors and the room curtain had been a bit cleaner.
Roger's family were perfect, friendly hosts, made you feel at home during the whole stay.
Location could not be more central, charming room in a beautiful house full of character.
Roger and he's family are very welcoming and friendly.
Also Roger's flat is so nice location!
I could easily find his flat.
My room was so cosy, it made me feel like real my room.
There are lot of guide books and I could borrow one of them.
조금 이른 시간의 비행기였던지라 일찍 도착할꺼 같아 체크인과 체크아웃 시간 문의 했었는데 흔쾌히 승락해 주셨어요~
호스트분이 직접 사는 집은 아니고 가족분들이 사는 집인데 조용하고 좋았어요~
특히 위치가 정말 좋았어요!
까탈루냐광장에서 걸어서 10분쯤 되고 큰 길에있어서 찾기도 쉽고 대성당이랑도 5분도 채 안걸려요~
겨울철에 가서 그런건지 사진처럼 집이 밝은 느낌은 아니였지만 방도 넓직하고 괜찮았어요.
그리고 직접 사는 집이라 생활감이 있어 아주 깨끗한 느낌은 아니였으니 참고하세요.
