The Space

Bienvenidos, welcome, bienvenue in Barcelona !
KING SIZE SUITE private bedroom with own private 15m2 terrace, own private ensuite-bathroom and WiFi in BRAND NEWLY RENOVATED SPACIOUS 90m2 APARTMENT and panoramic 40m2 garden TERRACES.

You'll feel safe and at home here. Our neighbourhood is very secure and very centric in Barcelona. The apartment block has a security concierge and the apartment door has a tripple-security-lock with alarm.
You’ll get the peace and comfy rest you want in this apartment. It is very quiet as you can stay with all windows opened and no-traffic noise, whilst staying in the center of the city !
Hasta pronto! Enjoy your stay! A bientôt ! Philippe.

- The KING SIZE bedroom is like a little world apart and is very independent to the rest of the apartment. Peaceful, with delux/flat/soft/memory 200x200cm mattress in design teak woodwork bed (bedding is provided with clean duvet/comforter, bed sheets & bath towels), double large wardrobe, air-fan or heating. From the bedroom you’ll have direct access to your own private en-suite bathroom (hair drier available) and your own private 15m2 TERRACE with sitting/sunbathing area (views to Tibidabo hills & sunset).
I occupy the other bedroom in this two bedroom apartment. All communal areas are shared. Plenty of space for everyone !
- OUTDOOR - The 40m2 garden TERRACE is joined to the living room (with views to Montjuic green hills) where you can enjoy the Terrace lounge, dining area, bbq, sunbath on the sunbeds and if you want some shade you can cocktail-dine-siesta under the Terrace large awning (separate laundry with washing machine, drying lines, iron, ironing board.

The apartment location is very centric and in the middle of everywhere you’ll be going whilst visiting or working in Barcelona. You’ll be able to walk anywhere or access the metro just round the corner. The Convention Centers FIRA MONTJUIC is next door and FIRA GRAN VIA 10’min.

  • Staying with Philippe was just a delight, for me and 2 friends. He even made an exception on this, which was very cool and appreciated.

    It was my first Airbnb experience, and started already good from the first second. Philippe's appartment was very easy to find ! Just a 2 minute walk from the nearest Metro station (Poble Sec).

    Our welcome was very friendly and warm...there was an instant connection because Philippe is Belgian from origin.

    The appartment was fully cleaned and was MORE beautiful than the pictures.
    The terrace of our room we even didn't use. Philippe didn't bother using the biggest terrace with BBQ option. Also this was an extra option, we won't forget.
    Also the fully equipped kitchen was a delight to use.

    Even when the appartment was filled with visitors & friends, when it got crowdy - Philippe kept his cool. Always friendly and willing to help you out with question about nice places to go / public transportation / airport hours / good restaurants / ...

    My friends and I want to thank Philippe for this wonderful five days of absolute enjoyment ... trying his best to let us feel like home ( even when we asked something extra ! )

    Thanks for this first 5-star experience, Philippe !

  • We stayed 5 nights at Philippe. We had a good time. Everything was up to our expectation. Philippe is a great host, giving us all the information we needed. He is also a great chef. We had a fantastic healthy meal on the first day of our arrival. The apartment is located in a good location easy to reach the metro and airport bus. There are supermarket near by and a few good restaurants around. The room we stayed is nice with the terrace and good view and in a safe area.

  • Philippe went out of his way to be as helpful as possible. The apartment is fantastic, with two terraces giving wonderful views of Barcelona. The pictures do not do the place justice and I envy Philippe's sense of taste and decor.

  • Philippe merci beaucoup...Notre chambre était super bien, propre et bien exposé. Idéal pour visiter Barcelone à deux minutes du métro Poble Sec. Hôte très discret et très convivial. Nous avons passés un séjour merveilleux dans cette appartement avec ces deux terrasses fleuris avec gout.
    Merci encore philippe pour cette semaine de vacances qui sans toi n'aurait pas eu la même saveur...
    @ Bientôt en Normandie peut être....

  • Philippe is an amazing host. Had lots of interesting conversations on random topics and he was always very helpful with what to see and where to eat in Barcelona :)
    The apartment is beautiful. The private balcony is the perfect place to witness the sunset and gives a very nice view of Tibidabo. Everything was super clean and everything required was arranged for. Hope to have a longer visit next time!

  • Philippe is een geweldige gastheer en zeer correct. Hij heeft ons hartelijk ontvangen en heeft tips gegeven voor locale restaurant en een supermarkt. Daarna hadden wij alle vrijheid om gebruik te maken van zijn appartement. Deze is erg luxe met een comfortalbel bed, eigen badkamer en dakterras met formidabel uitzicht. Het appartement ligt op loopafstand van de fonteinnen van Montjuic en met metro is alles snel breikbaar. Alles gebeurt op basis van vertrouwen en we hebben erg veel privacy gehad. Kortom een geweldige ervaring en een aanrader voor iedereen.

  • My friend Sabine and I stayed in Philippes apartment for one week. We had a room with a huge (2x2m) and comfortable bed, bathroom ensuite and a 15 m2 terrace as our private area and could use the kitchen, the living room and the big terrace of this beautiful apartment together with Philippe who was a great host for us. Everything was clean and well organized. We both highly recommend to book the DELUX KING SUITE!!!

  • We loved staying with Philippe for 4 days in Barcelona. The flat was so convenient to the metro and we had no problems finding the place with Philippe's very detailed instructions. We enjoyed all of Philippe's restaurant suggestions and there is an amazing tapas restaurant right down stairs that we ate at twice! We stayed in the King suite and the bed was insanely comfortable and we slept soundly. No problems there! I never heard a thing! The flat is very beautifully decorated and the terraces are amazing. Ah! I could go on! I loved everything about our stay and I would like to visit Philippe again in the future for trips to Barcelona! xx

  • Bizar, but all the earlier reviews are true. Philippe and his apartment are great! the luxury of a hotel and the easy going of you're own home. True, the walls are thin. But it's a quiet neighborhood and philippe is minding his guests :) I can really recommend this place, it's fantastic!

  • Nous avons passé un très agréable séjour dans l'appartement, nous nous sentions comme chez nous, l'emplacement était idéal et le quartier très sympa, la cerise sur le gâteau étant les petits déjeuners sur la terrasse.

Hola, G’day, Bonjour and welcome! I am originally from Belgium, lived and worked in Toulouse, New Zealand and Sydney twelve years in the tourism industry and home decoration and now living this peaceful Terraces apartment with stunning views. I have passion for food, home styling, cultures and socialising. I chose to live in Barcelona for everything it offers: culture, great weather, great restaurants/bars, and a very interesting mix of people. In my travels I also use airbnb so I do understand your needs and what you’ll be looking for when staying in Barcelona ... a special experience with a comfortable accommodation in the centre of the city. This terraces apartment offers you all that. Hasta pronto, see you soon, à bientôt ! Philippe.
