The room is quite modest, located in a modernist building in the neighbourhood of Sant Antoni in Barcelona, Eixample area.
There is a double bed (135 cm), wardrobe and desk with a chair, enough for a laptop.
The house is distributed in a typical way in the Eixample district at the end of the 18th century, early 19th. The room has a small window that overlooks the living room, which has a balcony to the street This allows to have privacy and rest assured.
The House has two rooms, one large living room, fully equipped kitchen and bathroom with shower. There is wi-fi, TV, DVD, home cinema.
I live alone, so you would only be with one me in the house. It is an old building, no lift, and the flat is in a third and a half floor.
The area is completely central, in a strategic point that allows you to be close to everything you need for a holiday in Barcelona: 10 minutes walk from Universidad Square and España Square, 15 from Cataluña Square; public transport to the Airport (Aerobus) 2 minutes. 3 metro lines close (Rocafort, L1; Sant Antoni L2 and L3 Poble Sec). Many options for buses, and close to Sants Estació.
The district of Eixample is well known, but Sant Antoni has become one of the most trendy areas in Barcelona, full of bars (Federal Cafe, Taranna), restaurants, Parlament street, cinema, gyms, even a bar with free tapas right in front of house.
Two lines of trees in the street help to make this house comfortable in a safe and really nice area in the city. You would be quite close to other areas as Poble Sec, Raval or the gay area in the Eixample district.

All round, it was a great experience staying at Francisco's place... Great apartment, great location and great host! From the beginning, Fran was very easy to communicate with, always quick and responsive to my e-mails and messages and he's very relaxed and laid back so I never felt any stress staying there. He also helped me a lot with things I wanted to do.
The apartment itself is really nice. It's kept very clean, it's comfortable and in a good location. You can easily walk to many tourist places and around the apartment are many shops, grocery stores and restaurants so you can get anything you need.
All in all: Five stars! Thanks Fran!
I had a great stay at Francisco's home . Location is just what I wanted if you want to be central but not on the hectic touristic part ... The area is really nice and Francisco indicated some nice places to go out to eat in the area that are just top fantastic , good food , good young cool and trendy atmosphere and away from tourists tours !! Fran's apartment is located in a nice building at 4th floor , and the effort to climb up the stairs is worth discovering a charming apartment , very well decorated and very clean .. Fran is just a nice person that let you feel at home at his his place , the guest room may have the inconvenient that is is has no outside windows but it is a nice size and decoration , well equipped with desk and place for your close .. He offered me a fan but even if it was hot on early September I did not need it ! Bath is also very convenient and clean !. I definitely enjoy my stay and highly recommend Fran's apartment !
I would like will share the impressions, I will be short - all described - is true! Convenient arrangement! In total at high level! Separately I would like to note Frank's hospitality! Remarkable and kind person! Always ready to help council and recommendations! It was very pleasant to live the house of such owner! Thanks bigger Frank!
I had a really nice stay in Franciscos flat. Francisco is a really helpful, polite and nice host. He helped me a lot what i can do in Barcelona and had a lot of useful information for me. Even before i arrived he answered every question i had very quickly.
The flat is in a really good area. Its possible to do much things by walking. And the metro stations und bus stations a very close.
The room is very nice and the whole flat very clean. There was everything i needed.
I can only recommend to book this room.
From the beginning it was like comming "home". I felt more like a roommate than like a guest.
Was really nice meeting Francisco and i hope to come back.
It was my 1st experience with AirBNB, and ... wow! What an experience it was! One of the best vacations ever, if not the best! Fran's apartment is really nice, well maintained, fully equipped with anything you can think of and very clean. I was very pleased by the fact that the apartment is really quiet even though it is located in a very good area in the heart of Barcelona. Is very close to Gran Via ( one of the busiest boulevards in Barcelona) it is very quiet so you can have a good night sleep. You`ve also got great connections with the airport and basically with any part of the city. Francesco was very kind and helpful (he gave me a lot of good tips on what to visit given the fact that we were in Barcelona for the 4th time).
Overall a great host, easygoing and open minded. I am definitely going to stay at his place again when I`m back in Barcelona and I strongly recommend it to anyone who's looking for a nice, friendly place to stay. It was like home!
Spanish: Fue mi primera experiencia con AirBNB, y ... wow! ¡Qué experiencia! Una de las mejores vacaciones de mi vida, si no el mejor! Apartamento de Fran es muy bonito, muy bien cuidado, totalmente equipado con todo lo necesario y muy limpio. Estoy muy satisfecho por el hecho de que el apartamento es muy tranquilo a pesar de que se encuentra en una muy buena zona en el corazón de Barcelona. Está muy cerca de la Gran Via, es muy tranquilo, así que puedes tener una buena noche de sueño. También tiene buenas conexiones con el aeropuerto y básicamente en cualquier parte de la ciudad.
Francesco era muy amable y servicial (me dio un montón de buenos consejos sobre qué visitar dado el hecho de que estuve en Barcelona por cuarta vez).
En general un gran anfitrión, tolerante y de mente abierta. Definitivamente voy a permanecer en su lugar de nuevo cuando estoy de vuelta en Barcelona y lo recomiendo encarecidamente a cualquiera que esté buscando un agradable y acogedor lugar para alojarse. Era como estar en casa!
Francisco is a great host. His flat is located in very good area, right in the city center and the airport connection buses are reached very easily just next street from the house. Fran is a kind guy and helpful with everything. He even baked me a welcome cake :) and helped me wash my cloths which was very kind. I would definitely recommend to stay with him to anyone. And one thing I found in him and that is a friend :) Thank you for wonderful stay Fran ;)
