Location: It's in the vibrant and trendy "barrio" of Gracia, a really nice and quite neighbourhood, and very well situated and communicated by metro and bus or even walking to the centre (which I do often). The area is calm and nice, lot's of sweet cafes around and interesting and full of live squares surounded by terraces where you can have nice tapas. Quitely and nice hood, (everything you need is just around the corner), clean, cheap, nice...
It's really close to Sagrada Familia and Park Güell (10 min walk) and within 2-4 metro stops (30 min walk) of the city centre, old town, Ramblas, etc. There are 4 tube stations near the house (green line: fontana stop, diagonal stop, blue line: girona stop, diagonal stop, and yellow line: verdaguer stop, joanic stop)
About the flat: we have a nice and big living room with a big dinner table and sofa. No TV :).but we have free WIFI. A well equipped kitchen, very comfortable, with lots of books, old toys, loads of table games... The bathroom is quite interesting as it is divided in different areas. The shower the sink and the loo are in different "rooms" which is quite handy when you share a flat so you don't have to wait for having a shower! Most of all it is clean. There is a lady which comes when a guest has to arrive so the flat is ready and clean for your arrive.
About me: We are about 3 people including yourself, with my cat Lola and Rey. They are lovely and complement each other :D they play quite a lot, in fact lola wants to play all the time, she is really stubborn. We smoke at home but not like crazy and we respect each other. Me and Gabrielle my flatmate are easy going and really friendly. We are like a little family and we much enjoy the company of new people. We both speak well english, spanish, catalan and italian. I will do anything for your stay to be as nice as possible. I love to cook so if we find some time together at home I can cook some real and delicious spanish meal. I like traveling and meeting new people from all over the place, so I'm sure we will both enjoy the experience!
About the room: It is a big room with everything you need. It has been well organised so you have everything there. Shelves to put your clothes. It has a window and it is probably the sunniest room in the flat. It has a big double bed and really comfortable latex cushion. It is really comfortable and quite place. You are going to feel like at home.
** Clean towels and sheets are provided **
Rules?: There are not much rules. Respect the neighbours with the noise, respect the cats and my flatmate Gabrielle and Anna. And I guess to clean our own mess at the kitchen or whathever common area before leaving the flat.

Lovely place with Nice people ! The cats are very funny. You can really enjoy your stay with Isabel and Gabrielle.
I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Isabel's flat. I didn't meet Isabel but met her flamate - an Italian guy who was extremely friendly and nice.
The flat is perfect for those people who love cats. They are lovely, socially and crazy in a good way.
The flat is very close to the city centre and main attractions.
we love how laidback n quiet the apt is! we enjoyed our stay a lot! isa was away but was always easily reach via txt! her equally lovely roomies Anna and Gabrielle are absolutely beautiful people! their company and isa two little furry friends have added more colors to our trip in bcn!
Very nice people, the room is great and the cats are fun to live with.
I thoroughly enjoyed my stay in Isabel's apartment. Even though Isabel was traveling, she kept in constant communication with me and check-in went smoothly. Her flatmates are interesting, kind, and fun people. I hope to stay here again - highly recommended!
I stayed for 2 weeks at Isa's place and really enjoyed my time there. I didn't meet Isa personally as she was abroad at that time, but was in contact with her during my entire stay. She and her flatmates (2 cats and 2 humans) were very very nice, friendly and helpful. I really felt at home!
The area in which the apt is seated is really cute and offers in the surrounding streets everything you could think of: many tiny shops, nice bars, restaurants, yoga studios, etc.
I had a great time and can definitely recommend this place!! .. and these cats ... they are so cute and funny!
It was excellent! Barcelona is a beautiful city - Isa and roommates are fantastic! Everything was clean, nice, friendly... would not know what else to say :-)
We stayed in the flat for 3 nights in September and we had a really good time. The flat is nicely decorated and cute and so are the cats. Sadly we didn't meet Isabel, but the other people in the flat were (also) very nice and helpful. We would definitely recommend the flat, since it is also well located in the centre of the Gracia area.
I had a wonderfull time in Barcelona! Sadly I couldn´t meet Isa (she had to go to Israel for work) but that´s the only negative thing. Isa and I stayed in contakt the whole time via e-mail, she´s very caring and since I was travelling by myself I felt safe right away. Then there are her two (or sould I say four?) flatmates: Gabriel ans Anna, they gave me a warm welcome that it felt like coming home to a friends house. The other two flatmates are the cats Rei and Lola, very sweet, cuddly and soooo soft :-)
And of course Gracia is the best Barrio in Barcelona! Great atmosphere, nice little shops, restaurants, bars. Wonderfull placas! To make a long story short: I had an amazing time in Barcelona and Anna, Gabriel and all of their friends and the people I met by travelling alone made it perfect! I´ll definitley come back!
Isabel is a wonderful host that makes you feel at home right away. A warm and free spirit that understands how to make people feel comfortable when travelling to foreign lands. She has great company in her two cats, roomate Gabriel and various friends and travelers that drop by.
I would reccomend this flat for anyone looking to connect with local culture and neighborhood.
