Greetings. I’m an Irishman living in Barcelona and I am renting my apartment which has two double rooms, one with Ensuite. The apartment has two bathrooms in all. I have lived in the city for eight years, and as such, I am fairly clued up about do’s and dont’s in Barcelona and will be glad to share any advice that I can give and recommendations with regards to Eateries and Barcelona’s extensive night life.
The Apartment is located in Urquinaona very close to the Palau de la Musica and to Metro Line 1 (Red) and Line 4 (Yellow). There is a metro entrance/exit around 30 metres from the building. My apartment is located within walking distance of las Ramblas but is still very central enjoying proximity to Gaudi's Casa Battlo, the Padrera, the Picasso Museum and is around 5 minutes walk from Parc Ciutadella which houses Barcelona's Zoo.
Whether you stay at my place while in Barcelona or another location “Bona Sort i que vagi molt be.“
Truly a fabulous apartment! Great location; can walk everywhere and metro station very close. Quiet for sleeping and felt secure in area and a very secure building. The lift was great and worked fine. Very bright with lots of light. Beautiful little terrace and balcony. We loved the sunny sitting area for morning coffee and croissants and wine before dinner. Plenty of room; we had 4 people and never felt on top of each other. Beds very comfortable. Plenty of towels and hot water for showers; great water pressure. One large bathroom off bedroom and one smaller bath with small shower. Great to have the 2 showers for getting ready for the day. Great kitchen with everything you need if you want to cook; we hosted a dinner party with no problem. Also nice to have the clothes washer, iron, hair dryer there. Wi-Fi worked perfectly. Tomas is very accommodating; my flight was cancelled coming into Barcelona and changes had to be made for keys at last moment but no problem. I will definitely be booking Tomas's apartment for my next stay in Barcelona!
Very much as advertised: great location, comfortable and home-like feeling, good value.
Tomas is an excellent host: charming, flexible and available.
We really felt home in Tomas apartment. It is located in a very cool historical building near plaza Catalunya and Rambla street. Nice terace with nice view, Special thanks go to Johny, very helpful and friendly host. Thank you Tomas, very much for everiting, and we hope to come again!
A delightful bright apartment in a very central but quiet area. All amenities close by. We were three adults staying for ten days and there is enough space not to be on top of each other. We were able to walk to most places and for further afield there is an excellent metro at the end of the street. Parc Ciutadella is close if you feel like a morning jog! There is a good internet connection so you don't need heavy guide books and dictionaries! If you like cooking, the Boqueria market will delight and Tomas has some great pots for cooking. Tomas is a very helpful host and responds promptly to emails and messages. He sorted a problem we had with the fridge.
All in all, a great holiday and would be happy to return or recommend to friends.
Spacious apartment in a lovely building in a great location. Tomas was very responsive to all our emails and questions. He also gave us great dining and activity suggestions. The apartment was conveniently located near Las Ramblas as well as being accessible to some great restaurants and sights. Stayed there with two of our adult children and their spouses. We loved the sitting area for coffee in the morning, then wine and cheese in the afternoon. Great memories in beautiful Barcelona.
Great apartment, great building, great location. Close to everything in the old city, and just a short metro ride (station one block away) from the rest. Very clean and very nice place. Absolutely quiet at night, very comfy sleeping. We were absolutely thrilled with this place. Didn't get to meet Tomas as he was traveling, but his friend John was very helpful and friendly. Totally recommend.
Amazing apartment! 4 beautiful rooms with a very nice view from the big balcony, 2 bathrooms, lots of space, acoustic system, 2 double beds & 1 single; 2min walk to the city center, 15min to the beach (Barcelonetta) by metro (25 min walk); all what you need for comfortable living are here (washing machine, iron, air-conditioner, towels, beach towels and etc.).
All photos are true and Tomas is very friendly and nice guy!!! :)
Great Host! Great location! Great place! Most comfortable place we stayed during our travels through Europe. Very comfortable.
Great host, wonderful flat, amazing location!
The apartment is very well situated close to the metro station and it is just a five minutes walk to the Gotic destrict with the very good market St. Catarina (very good fish) and good restaurants. Despite of the cental location the apartement is very quiet.
We loved the place for its spacious rooms and its large windows giving a fresh taste to every morning wake up.
The kitchen is well featured to cook meals (remember the fish from the market...).
For us it was also convinient to stay in walking distance to the language school we attended.
The apartment is in the 3rd floor and with an ancient elevator which served its purpose at all times.
We are looking forward to booking the apartment again on a future visit to BCN.
This is the final rate, including any fees from the host and Airbnb.
