Emma and I have been living in Barcelona for the last 6 years and we chose this location to live for the exact same reasons we listed above. It makes our life easier, so it will your stay.
The flat is fully furnished and the room has all that you may need, and we are open to special requests too, so just let us know if there is anything else that you may need during your stay and we will try our best to provide whatever that maybe for you. In the room you will find a 90X200 bed, a built-in wardrobe with 5 drawers, in case you may need more storage space you can use the other wardrobe allocated to you at the entrance and we have a storage room that you will be able to use and leave luggage and other stuff that you will not want to keep in your room. There is a console table in the room where you will find a laptop dedicated for your use only, with access to a 100 Mbps fiber-optic internet connection if you do not bring in your own, in which case we would remove the laptop so you have space for yours. There is a bed side table with a reading light on it and some shelves that puts the room together and you might find useful.
The room and the flat is tastefully decorated. The flat is on the 3rd floor, recently renovated, and has 2 bedrooms, an open plan American kitchen, a modern bathroom and gorgeous living room with a corner fire place with access to the main balcony where you can have your meals or morning coffee. The balcony oversees the PASSEIG DE SANT JOAN and since the flat is at same height as the trees of Passeig De Sant Joan, it gives you the sensation of being in a park and therefore it is very relaxing. Although the flat has been renovated the old example style has been kept while modernizing it, thus the flat has the high ceilings with moldings, mosaic floors in the bedrooms and the living room. The building has a lift and a doorman.
You will of course have access to all the appliances in the flat, and you will be provided with clean towels and sheets at your arrival.
Last but not least, you probably will have the best tourist guides you can get in the city as we love traveling and know all around Barcelona and Catalunya very well.
My girlfriend Emma is 25 and an interior architect and me Paolo am 31 and I am a Telecommunication Engineer. We have a 3rd family member, he is a British Short hair kitten called HUGO, he is only 2 years old and super friendly. We speak English at home all the time and are fluent Spanish speakers. We will find a way to communicate no matter if you can’t speak one these languages, thanks to our experience living abroad for the last 11 years.
A Single room with all that you need in a lovely, modern flat to share with us. We would love to host you.
You will have all you may need during your stay, at a ridiculously economically priced modern flat, located at one of the best zones of Barcelona.

We are looking forward hearing from you

Paolo and Emma have a great apartment, in a terrific location, near the metro and a 15 minute walk to the Gothic area. They made me feel very welcome and generously gave me lots of help including very clear directions to find my way. Communication was easy given their fluency in speaking English, and their cat Hugo was a real character with a lot of personality. I enjoyed my visit and our conversations. I felt very comfortable and had no problems. The apartment is super clean and spacious. The bedroom was not large but there was lots of hanging space and it was nice to have the windows open to get the breeze. I would be happy to return. Thanks Paolo and Emma.
Paolo et Emma sont un couple charmant. Paolo m'as accueilli le soir de mon arrivée dans la rue a bras ouvert m'étant un peu perdu dans l'adresse. j'ai apprécié l'appartement très propre et la déco très inn!
Tout le long du séjour ils ont été à l'écoute si j'avais besoin de quelque chose. Le lit de ma chambre était bon ; la pièce calme donnant sur une cour. Le quartier près de l'arc de triomphe est aérée, chic et pas loin de tout par le (website hidden) faut aimer les chats (ce qui est mon cas) car Hugo the cat est gentil et bien présent dans l'appartement.
Paolo avec son sourire chaleureux m'as accompagné jusqu'a mon départ avec courtoisie.
Je recommande . C'était ma première expérience airbnb.
I had such a wonderful experience staying with Paolo and Emma. They were both extremely welcoming and responsive to all of my questions and needs. I felt like I had two friends in BCN before I even arrived. Their apartment is very nice and clean and in a wonderful neighborhood. I easily walked everywhere I wanted to go and felt safe the entire time. I highly recommend staying with them if you're ever traveling alone in Barcelona!
Genuinely friendly, chatty, went out of their way to make me feel welcome. Paolo made me a cup of tea and offered advice on the area. Apt is lovely & great location! Highly recommend. Thanks!
Paolo and Emma (and Hugo) were wonderful hosts and a pleasure to spend time with. They had great suggestions for my time in Barcelona and made me feel very welcome. Their home is light, spacious and very conveniently located to the best sites in the city. I had a terrific time!
Great hosts! There were city maps and information provided in the room to ensure guests get to know Barcelona very well. The apartment was in a great location and was as described on the website.
Paolo and Emma made me feel extremely welcome when I arrived at their place. They provided me with maps and recommendations for local attractions and food. Their apartment is simple but stylishly finished and its in a great location only a 10min walk from the gothic quarter and all the major attractions. They also provided detailed information on how to get to their apartment from the airport using the aerobus which was very helpful. I would definitely recommend Paolo and Emma's place to any travellers looking for a place in the heart of Barcelona for a few days of sight seeing. Thanks Paolo and Emma you guys are great!!
