Hi and welcome to my home,
I'm offering a PRIVATE DOUBLE ROOM in the old town, an unbeatable location for central Barcelona.
Be close to Catalunya square, La Rambla, Boqueria Market, Cathedral, Raval, Gothic & Sant Antoni quarters, great restaurants and bars, MACBA museum, Gaudi houses on Passeig de Gracia, Sagrada Familia only 4 stops on the purple line right on the square I live by (Plaça Universitat). Well connected to Parc Güell (bus 24 on the square straight to the Parc or green line (L3) metro also take you directly there.
Really in the heart of Barcelona, so everywhere is easily accessible.
Plenty of shops: food, clothes, books, technology, vintage shops, bike rental, bakery, supermarket, etc.
At this apartment you'll have:
- A private, large double room
- Large dining, living area
- iPod dock, CD & DVD player, TV with many channels in Spanish & English!
- Fully equipped, open plan kitchen with Nespresso, electric kettle, microwave, oven, cooking utensils, pans, etc.
- Washing machine (courtesy soap & softener)
- Free high speed WiFi
- Central Heating, radiators in every room and bathroom
- Air Conditioner during summer time
- Nice size bathroom with hot shower that doesn't run out!
- Clean linen and towels and duvet!
- Iron & ironing board
Plus all my tips about Barcelona (got plenty of maps and books too) and all my support during your stay.
Really EASY access from El Prat (Barcelona main airport), with the AEROBUS (airport shuttle) in 25-30 mins!. Get off at PLAZA UNIVERSITAT which is the third stop (first one is Plaza España, then Urgell). From there, only 3 mins walk. Aerobus cost 6€ or 10€ return.
Alternatively, I can arrange airport transfer for you for 30€ upon request.
You'll have your own keys and there are no restrictions regarding time to enter / leave the apartment (as long as you're not too noisy and respect the neighbours)
Note about the room:
I'd like to point out that part of the rooms' walls don't reach the ceiling, design that allows for some air from the air conditioning to reach the rooms. I'm very discreet (I live here alone) and people that stayed before had no problem (actually they loved the design) but I prefer to say this in advance. You can check the pictures out to see what I mean. I only moved to this flat 3 months ago and I'm planning to put windows there, but since it's been too hot I decided to wait until about October, for the air conditioning to reach both rooms.
Smoking is not allowed in the common areas or the room, only next to the balcony where there's a nice rocking chair and a table to have a drink too.
**NEW! Possibility of taking Yoga classes at home with an excellent teacher!**
I've been hosting travellers for over 2 years now, feel free to check the 5 star reviews on my other listings :)
Thanks for choosing my apartment!
I há da wonderful stay at Claudia's place! She was not there but had a friend staying there who took great care of me! Claudia gave me clear instructions and was communicative the whole time. The place was warm, clean and perfectly located to explore the city. Highly recommended!
Claudia (and her friend Sofie) made my short stay in Barcelona a real pleasure. The apartment is like shown in the pictures and her friend Sofie was so nice and welcomed me with a sweet surprise.
Overall a definite recommendation - the apartement is clean, really easy to find and in the heart of Barcelona.
Really nothing to complain about.
Claudia é una ragazza fantastica, unica nel suo genere!
L'ho capito fin da subito, dalle prime mail in cui mi ha descritto ogni minimo dettaglio per arrivare all'appartamento e mi rispondeva a qualsiasi domanda in modo preciso e veloce.
Sono arrivata a Barcellona da sola per incominciare la mia esperienza erasmus e lei mi ha accolta come una sorella, come una amica, non so cosa avrei fatto se lei non ci fosse stata! Mi ha fatto sentire a casa.
Per ogni mia domanda aveva una risposta, per ogni mio problema una soluzione.
E' una ragazza dolce e sempre pronta ad aiutare i suoi ospiti ai quali offre piú che la sola ospitalitá, come per esempio le cartine di Barcellona o tanti bigliettini di ristoranti o bar che lei consiglia.
L'appartamento poi é meraviglioso, pulito, ordinato e arredato benissimo.
Si puó trovare tutto quello di cui uno ha bisogno, sia per quanto riguarda la cucina, sia nelle camere da letto.
La posizione poi é eccezionale: vicinissimo a Plaza universitat, nel calle dels tallers una vietta molto caratteristica piena di baretti e negozi molto carini.
Da qui si puó visitare tutta Barcellona a piedi o in bici al massimo, senza prendere i mezzi pubblici.
E'stata la mia prima esperienza in airbnb e non poteva andare meglio!!
Non troverete una "host" migliore di Claudia!
Appartamento molco carino, pulito, in ordine e in una posizione ottima per visitare Barcellona. Sicuramente quando torneremo sceglieremo ancora questo appartamento!
The apartment is nice and clean and the position is perfect for visiting Barcelona. It's sure that if we come back again in Barcelona we'll chose again this apartment!
I will definately stay here again and recommend it to my friends!
I never met Claudia as she was away, but communication before and during my stay went smoothly and she seems like a lovely person. And the fact that she is vegetarian like me, was a huge plus.
The location of her apartment is perfect. Right by the airport bus stop, one of the main shopping streets, plaza catalunya and the beginning of Raval area. Yet the apartment was completely silent, which is rare for apartments in Barcelona city center. I would also consider calle Tallers a safe one, and the bars downstairs will keep the street lively late at night, so you won`t have to walk in an empty street unless you have been out partying late.
Everything in the apartment was clean and tidy, shower preassure was good, kitchen fully equipped, big bed and loads of sightseeing material such as brochures and guide books. She also has a water filter mug so you don`t have to run out and buy water all the time.
The decor is lovely and the total feel of the apartment is great. Good energy! I could move right in there myself :)
The bedroom has no window, but the air doesn`t get stuffed as there is a distance between the walls and the roof and one wall has been removed and faces an area that gets air from the french balcony, yet is secluded from the livingroom.
I would recommend this place to friends, single travelers or family. If you are looking for a sexy getaway with your lover, you may want to look elsewhere, as you don`t have any privacy as far as what sound goes ;)
Thank you for opening your lovely home to me, Claudia! Hope to meet you next time! And thank you for the bag of chips you left for me!
I loved every minute of my stay at Claudia's. Her home was comfortable, welcoming and clean. She is an excellent host in that she knows exactly how to treat out of towners. She's also become a really good friend! I'm so glad to have met her and I would highly recommend staying at Claudia's!
Staying with Claudia was like visiting a friend. It was totally uncomplicated. She is very helpful, known a lot of useful informatione about Valencia. Claudia is a wonderful young woman to talk to and we wish to see her again some day.
The room is warm and tidy, we could use the kitchen and had some wine with our host. Really, we felt very welcome. The flat is next to the old city, which is also very nice. Looking forard to next time!
Claudia's place is simply incredible for anyone looking for a well located flat, comfortable room and really well informed and fun host!! Simone and I were able to discover pretty much of all Barcelona in 4 days due to great location and of course the help of Claudia. We were also very fortunate to spend New Years Eve in this amazing city. We could never thank enough Claudia for being such a wonderful host!! Claudia - keep in contact and feel free to crash in our places whenever in São Paulo.
The apartment is ideally located, comfortable and Claudia was very gracious host and my son took a liking to her nephews :)
I highly recommend staying at Claudia's to friends and family.
I had a wonderful stay at Claudia's apartment. Claudia was a really kind host and she gave me lots of useful tips on Barcelona, particularly some great places to eat! The apartment itself was lovely, very clean and comfortable, and the location is perfect for exploring the city. Overall, I had a very much-recommended airbnb experience!
