Directions from the Airport
The best way to me is by the blue Aerobus or train from the airport or if its very late the night bus N17 from terminal 2 this takes you to plaza catalunya where you need to take the road on the right by Corte ingles carrer de fontenella this will take you to metro L4 Urquinaona from there it is two stop to barceloneta and from that station turn right cross the road go down Juan de borbo and then take carrer Maquinesta and the sal is about the 5th turn on your right.
If coming by train there is a station at the airport this will take you to estacion de francia you will need to get off at passig de gracia wait on the same platform and then its the next train to estacion de francia which will take about 30 mins and then come out of the main exit from the station turn left and proceed about 200 metres to pta de palua turn left and follow this road past barceloneta metro station and on to Joan de Borbo and then take 3rd turning Maquinesta and De la Sal is about the 5th turning on your left.
My stay at Noel's place in Barcelona was great. He very friendly and knowledgeable about the area. The room was neat and perfect for someone who needs a place to crash. The beach is a couple of blocks away and there are markets and local places to eat and drink. Highly recommended.
Simple bedroom in a nice district close to the sea. Perfect for a few days in BCN.
Noel was an excellent host, helpful and uncomplicated.
This room was perfect for me. It provided exactly what I needed (a bed for a comfortable sleep and a coffee and a shower in the morning) without any unnecessary wasted space or luxury.
Noel was an excellent host, laid-back and friendly. His pet is a cute chinchilla that has its cage right outside the room.
The apartment is on the fourth floor and I was glad that I did not have a suitcase to carry up the narrow stairs.
The location was really convenient and I enjoyed the late-night walk along the nearby beach (even though I was surprised by the strength of the surf and got myself a bit drenched).
If you find yourself in Barcelona on your own and are looking for a good place to sleep, but don't want luxury there because you want to spend your time out and about rather than in your room, then this is the ideal place for you.
Excellent! First time using Airbnb and everything was great. Very good location, Noel was really helpful and an excellent host. Would happily stay there again when back in Barcelona.
Tiny room; excellent host!
Great apartment to spend a few nights in Barcelona. Close to Barcelona beach and I walked almost everywhere. Noel was an excellent host. We had lots of long conversations and he even gave me his old metro travel card to use in Barcelona! I enjoyed my cosy room and the chats with Noel and would recommend to anyone who plans to visit Barcelona for a few days.
Only good things to say about Noel (and his chinchilla). Price/value appropriate. This may be helpful: don't bring a big suitcase as the steps to the 4th floor are very narrow.
Everything was good. Noel's flat is just on the main spot of Barceloneta and it was easy to find. Easy communication with Noel. The room's tiny but it has everything you need to have a good sleep and rest. Bed was clean and comfy.
The place is amazingly located, walking distance from most of the touristic places in Barcelona, the beach, clubs, Gothic district, mall, museum, rentals, zoo, Rambla, etc.
Noel was very helpful when I arrived, the room had lots of tourist information, guides and maps and he explained me how to get around easily, where the nearest interest points were and how to stay safe.
The days I stayed Noel spent most of the time away, so I had most of the place for myself :P It turned out handy as I could leave my bag out of the bedroom since it is rather small.
I would totally recommend this place for any short stay in the city. Location is perfect.
Noel was helpful and friendly. The bed was comfortable and the shower was good, though small. Unfortunately Noel and I have different ideas about what quiet means. Barcelona is a young, vibrant city, and I guess the residents are used to the sound of people talking and moving around in the streets and within the building at night. Even Noel's chinchilla in a cage just outside the room seemed nocturnal! Apart from this, it's good value for money, and I like the area.
