We have a room in the hippest part of BCN for short stays. The room is quiet and has a view onto our balcony.
People who share our interests will get the most out of the stay: food, drink, markets, music and making the most of local businesses.
We have a single room with double bed in our lovely flat in the centre of Barcelona's hippest area, El Raval.
The flat has a great central location, from which you can visit a lot of cool places on foot (two minutes walk from MACBA or CCCB, five from las Ramblas, Pl. Catalunya, the main shopping areas and the Boqueria Market, local food shops, vintage shops, art galleries, and so on.
The building is also very well connected, with the 4 main metro lines (L1, L2, L3), bus stops, the bus stop to the airport and also a taxi stand just 3 mins away.
The room we are renting is a quiet single room with double bed and a window to our balcony, so it's pretty bright. You'll be sleeping in a brand new, comfy and enormous double bed.
The flat would be shared with me, a Catalan girl in her thirties, my boyfriend Mark, English, 32 and my three lovely and friendly cats.
We provide our guests with bedclothes, towels, keys, English tourist guides and top recommendations from a local who likes good and cheap restaurants, wine bars, local beers, cool places, cultural events, fashion, flea markets, hidden places to discover, etc.
We have lots of experience in hosting guests so we can also send you references or you can see the amazing reviews we have!
Please, feel free to ask me anything else you need to know, I'll try to get back to you!
Please, we are very flexible with check-in hours, but we are busy people and we also like enjoying what our lovely city offers. It will help A LOT if you could provide us your arrival time so we will be able to organise our day.

* The flat is on the top floor and there's no lift, I'm afraid.

Thanks a lot and welcome to Barcelona!
The flat is fully equipped and well decorated with renovated living room, kitchen, bathroom and lovely balcony. Our guests can feel free to use all the electrical appliances like the fridge/freezer, oven hobs, washing machine, wifi, toaster, hairdryer, air conditioning, fan, and TV/DVD.
The location of the flat is great for exploring central Barcelona - cut across past the MACBA ( Museum Art Contemporani de Barcelona) and you are in the Ramblas and el Gotic areas...head up north to find Passeig de Gracia and Gaudi's famous Casa's... Mark and Natalia were friendly and helpful, and Mark coped with my incoming flight delays with 'dont worry I'll wait up'... after which time I didn't see too much of my hosts, as I was busy exploring .... You need to be comfortable with cats - they are lovely and friendly - and Negro Jose has a passion for exploring bags!
I had a wonderful time staying with Natalia and Mark in December. Their apartment is very cute, spotlessly clean, the room is lovely and the cats made me feel very much at home. I feel they are an essential addition to the ambience of the place. Natalia and Mark were extremely welcoming and helpful with all my questions and while being very hospitable, very relaxed so I wasn't worried about being in the way. Mark even carried my very heavy suitcase up 3 or 4 flights of stairs (with a runaway cat in the other arm), and then down again when I left. I highly recommend their place. It's a fantastic part of town too, very close to everything. Thank you so much Mark and Natalia!
The quintessential Barcelona apartment! Great location, with a great balcony. Natalia and Mark were very nice hosts, and we loved all the cats.
Natalia and Mark are gracious hosts and their 3 cats are a delight. The apartment is brilliantly located in Barcelona, literally 2 minutes from the modern art museum MACBA, and surrounded by bars, cafés and fascinating little shops. After travelling alone for a while I really appreciated the experience of staying with Natalia and Mark. They are young vibrant people who know their city and are happy to share their knowledge. The accommodation is simple but extremely comfortable and excellent value. Thanks to both of you for welcoming me into your home.
We're really enjoyed our staying in Barcelona. Beautiful weather in November and clean and very well located our bnb!! Very easy and close to get to the Rambla street(the main street). Nathalia and Marc are friendly and very helpful. I was so happy to find Nathalia's place.
Those three cats are so lovely even for me who are not familiar with cats.
I'll recommend to my friends for the best staying in Barcelona. <33 Thanks!!
We really enjoyed our stay with Natalia and Marc! The flat is very well located, simple, clean, nice and cosy in an old flat full of charm.., Our hosts very easy going and the cats very friendly! We can really recommand this stay.....
We found Natalie the perfect hostess as she was very helpful providing local tips for english speaking tourists. A delightful top floor apartment, very safe and secure in a very good location close to the old section of the city. (You get used to the walk up 5 flights of stairs). The accommodation was as described.
All round very good.
Natalia & Mark was very helpful. House was very clean & has everything you need. Cats were lovely, especially the black one : ) All in all, I felt like at my own home with them.
We loved the stay. The location was right in the center. We loved the lovely three cats and enjoyed having dinner at the balcony. Natalia's boyfriend Mark was laid back and very helpful.
Natalia and Mark were wonderful hosts and went out of their way to make our stay perfect....helped us with great places to eat and drink, events going on during our stay and anything else we might need - even made reservations for us when our awful attempts at Spanish failed us!
Wonderful original apartment with 3 very friendly furry friends who also made us feel very welcome, great location too. They thought of everything, down to sharing their shampoo and toothpaste to help with our "light" hand luggage packing.
Really fantastic Barca experience, would recommend to everyone and will definitely be back! Thank you so much to the both of you, Amy and Matthew
