The Space

A single room located in barceloneta, Use of a bathroom and living room, washing machine, cooking facilities and balcony. On the fourth floor next to the market in barceloneta. Some fantastic restaurants mins away. Normally able to supply two monthly updated local guides for whats on that month in the area also. Walking 5 mins from both the Beach and the metro,7 mins walk from Estació de França, 7 mins from the Cable car to montjuic, 10 mins walk from Maremagnum shopping centre, 10 mins walk from the main port,12 min walk to La Rambla, 15 mins from catalonia square and 15 mins by metro to sagrada familia, Plaza Espana 15 mins by direct bus, walking 5 mins to Bourne and Gothic, walking 10 mins to Port Olympic.

I also now have wifi in the flat rather than communal wifi that works with computers and Macs perfectly now.

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.

Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • Very good location. Metro,train station and busses are within 10-15 minutes walk distance. Easy to walk to the city center amd Rambla as well. Beach is in 5 minutes.
    Room is small but ok. Bathroom is tiny, but again for the money you pay -it is a great place! :-)
    Noel is a very nice person. Talkative if you want to chat, but with good sense and understanding if you want to be alone and not to communicate at all ,-)

  • I was thoroughly disappointed with this room. I was surprised at all the previous reviews, because that is what I based my decision to reserve the place on, and usually the reviews are a fair representation of the place.
    Yes, Noel is a nice person.
    The room and the apartment...not nice.
    First, the room does not have a real door and bed was uncomfortable and itchy.
    There is a chinchilla right outside the door, making noise all night long.
    The bathroom door does not close all the way, so you can see out in the living room while you are on the toilet.
    The bathroom is extremely small, as well as the apartment.
    The neighborhood is loud and noisy all night long...believe me, I could not sleep. Then cigarette smoke from a neighbor diffused through the window, and if you closed the window, the room was hot and stuffy and started to smell like the pet cage right outside your door.
    The apartment was not clean and was too tight.
    I reserved the apartment for two nights and left at 8am the following morning of the first night with a new reservation for another place in another neighborhood of Barcelona. Noel did not refund me back for the second night, which I thought was poor business practice. I did not care, however, because I just wanted to sleep.
    I would not recommend this to another female, and only for a male if you do not care about the conditions of the place you stay and are just looking for a cheap place. It has the ocean nearby, but thats about it. All other attractions are further away. The beach is very touristy and not too clean either.

  • The room is just perfect for me to do a solo travel in Barcelona.
    And you must ask Noel for information before making any decision about your schedule in the city, since he really is a friendly and helpful person.

  • Single Room 5 mina from the sea. Yep does exactly what it says on the tin. Noel was a very accommodating host and have me a lot of tips for the city. Short but good stay. And if you want to be near the beach the you can't get much closer!

  • Great location! The flat was clean and tidy ... really close to the beach and it is walking distance from El Barrio Gotico and other main attractions. Noel was very helpful and friendly!
    Definitely recommend to stay at Noel's.

  • Had a very nice stay at Noels flat and he is really nice. It is a small room but absolutely great location close to the beach and transport to the city.

  • Had a good visit at Barceloneta with Noel. He is in fact right by the sea and with many cool places to eat off the beaten track, as well as the touristy ones on the beach itself. Also a good supermarket across the street, along with the traditional covered Spanish neighborhood market along side the supermarket. While the bedroom itself is small, as can be easily seen in the photo, when one has to actually live in the space for several days on end ... then small becomes very small indeed. But all in all a good stay and Noel was cool.
