The apartment is located in a safe area, especially at night.
It's a very tourist area so it's well guarded by the police during the day. At night it's pretty quiet as the tourists are gone to other nightlife areas in Barcelona.
At 50 m you can find the "Sagrada Familia" metro station and several public buses and tour buses stops.
Other Things to Note
The apartment has the License Number for tourist housing rent (HUTB-009976), the Certificate of Habitability and the Energy Performance Certificate, issued by the official bodies. This ensures that it is in compliance with local and regional regulations
The law of the Government of Catalonia requires a Tourist Tax per person per and day to all travelers staying in a tourist establishment. However, tourists accommodated in our apartment don't have to be worry about this fee since it is included in the accommodation price.
Please, remember that you will stay in a building where other people are living their own homes. For us it is very important to respect the neighbours so we kindly ask you for responsibility and consideration about noise. Therefore the parties in the flat are not allowed.
We wouldn't like to charge any extra cost to our guests, so we ask for your cooperation and responsible use of the apartment.
If you will stay longer than five days, please water the plants.
Smoking is only allowed in the terrace.
According to the compliance with local regulations (Order IRP/418/2010, of 5 August), all lodging establishments are required to make a record of all the people and travellers who stay in the establishment.

That was realy a great experience for our familly to be in this flat in the center of Barcelone We appreciate a lot the welcome of Arturo who takes time to explain us plenty of things. The appartment is in a very good place next to Sagrada Famillia It was clean, practical, lovely and very comfortable (air conditioned, bed, beautiful bathroom...)
So thank you Arturo for all your good advices too and be sûre we will come back again
Arturo made us feel very welcome! He was gracious and welcoming even though he had been waiting for us for close to an hour. His home was beautiful and comfortable, and quite spacious. It was very clean, and had excellent air conditioning, which we really appreciated because there was a heat wave while we were there. Arturo gave us excellent tips on fabulous restaurants and even looked up a churro place at our request. He was attentive and very helpful. The apartment is very close to Sagrada Familia, as stated, and that made it easy to visit and to access services for tourists. We had a lovely stay!
Wow! Arturo is one of the best host!!! Waited for us, greated us with a bottle of wine and explained the appartment perfectly! Everything is well setted in the appartment. It is CLEAN, CLEAN, CLEAN!! I wanted to move.
Marvelous terrace. Took all the meals outside. In the middle of action, but peacefull, surprisingly silent at night.
So glad with our pick and very happy we have met Arturo.
Thank you for everything!!!
Julie and family.
We loved the apartment, and the neighborhood. We strongly recommend this apartment to families with kids. Arturo the owner was really helpfull and made our stay nice and comfortable.
We loved our stay at Arturo's place! Arturo was a perfect host, provided us with information about the area, was always quickly available for questions, and was very kind to our two small, tired, children when we got in. His food and sight seeing recommendations were always right on...we never had any regrets. The apartment is perfect, just as described. The location is awesome, an easy walk to fun cafes, bars, and attractions. We had such a good time. We were only in Barcelona for two days but want to return for two weeks. We would definitely stay at Arturo's apartment again.
We stayed at Arturo's apartment the last few nights of our two week Spanish adventure where we stayed at 5 airbnb places. Some Airbnb places we stayed were not so nice. This place was extremely nice, comfortable, and in a great location. Arturo was there expecting us when we arrived. He was a gentleman, very friendly and professional and went through the house, all the restaurants, how everything works...perfect. You can't ask for a better place. The pictures don't do it justice. On the top deck you have a very nice view to the La Sagrada Familia right up the street. Perfect location, perfect host, perfect apartment for our family of 6 (with 4 kids). And he had welcome drinks! What a host!
Our stay at this apartment was absolutely brilliant, the location is so close to La Sagrada Familia it is incredible and the streets felt so safe with many restaurants close by as well as supermarkets. The apartment itself is very well equipped and the wi-fi excellent, important for kids travelling with family's, we had our son with us and you could easily accommodate a few more children comfortably. The terrace is a lovely start to the day for breakfast and the kitchen is well equipped to make meals. The Metro is very close by and we made good use of that to get around Barcelona very easily as well as the hop on hop off bus tour up the road. We ate morning tea up the road so cheaply with a view of La Sagrada so not a bad way to start a big day, we enjoyed our stay very much and I would say definitely book, Arturo and Fatima are just lovely and accommodating.
