Cosy, Quiet and Central Room (A2)

Apartment - Private room · Carrer de Padilla, Barcelona, Catalonia 08025, Spain

Cosy room in a colourful, quiet and central apartment in Sagrada Familia neighborhood. Very well connected by public transportation and a short walk away from many major city attractions. Couple of smiling and polite hosts included! ;-)

The Space

The apartment is in a 1950's building that is in mint condition and we are in the process of renovating the apartment too. We are trying to maintain the original spirit with a twist: we love colour! And have I mentioned that you can see the Sagrada Familia from our living room? ; )

By the way, the apartment can hold up to five people in two rooms, this one being the two person room.
The bed is double size (135cm) and has got a mahogany head that has belonged to Jaume's family for more than one hundred years (it's a modernist antique). We painted the room and bought a new mattress in April 2013.

This room is ideal for short stays, either for one person or a couple with little luggage. If you have a lot of luggage or want a more spacious room you might want to check out room A1 (link below).

Guest Access

In our apartment you will enjoy a fully equipped kitchen, bathroom with shower, wi-fi connection and we also supply sheets and towels. You are also free to use the living room.

We’ll provide you with a set of keys (building and apartment’s) so you can be completely independent and come and go as you wish. The only limitation is that noise is to be kept to a minimum after 22h (we have thin walls and elderly neighbours and it is also a Barcelona city ordinance).

Interaction with Guests

We love talking about our different countries and customs. We think, it’s a beautiful way of learning about this wonderful world we live in. And since we love our city, giving advice about what to see and where to go is second nature to us. Depending on your tastes we will recommend you touristic places or the ones we locals enjoy. We live in the apartment too, so we'll be able to help you with anything else that you need.

The Neighborhood

In our neighborhood we have many different supermarkets and a lot of bakeries and restaurants (all kinds of cuisine, fast food included!). There’s also this little cafeteria right next door where you can have a very good Catalan lunch (Esther is such a good cook!) for an extremely reasonable price. And if you want to cook at home, we have a public market just around the corner and a fantastic fruits & vegetables shop where you can buy directly from the farmer (absolutely recommended !!!).

On top of that, right outside our building you have Sagrada Familia, Sant Pau Hospital, Encants Vells market, Passeig Sant Joan and Gràcia neighbourhood. If you like going for a walk, within 30min you can also reach Parc Güell, Parc de la Ciutadella, Passeig de Gràcia, the beach or even Barri Gòtic (that's the old town).

Getting around

About public transportation, you have 2 subway lines right here (we call them 'metro', by the way) and around 12 different bus lines. We recommend buying a T-10 card to use the public transportation system but you better check out the Barcelona Card just in case it suits you better.

We’re also very well connected to Sants Train Station and El Prat Airport. In case you come with your own car, there’s a couple of private garages around the building and also a low cost parking lot (perfect for longer stays) a little further away but directly connected by metro.

Other Things to Note

Any question left? Feel free to ask as many as you need. We look forward to meeting you!

And don't forget to take look at our Façebock (can’t mention it by name but you know what we mean, don’t you?). You can search us as ‘JoanPere Jaume’. Have a nice day!

  • El alojamiento ha cumplido perfectamente nuestras expectativas. La casa está en buen estado y tiene un tamaño apropiado. La situación de la cas es perfecta y tiene una buena orientación, lo que permite que la habitación sea silenciosa y que garantice el descanso, nada de ruidos. El vecindario es tranquilo y acogedor, muy cerca de la Sagrada Familia pero no demasiado para poder huir del bullicio.

    El mobiliario es bueno, adecuado a las necesidades de los viajeros, cómodo y préctico.

    Destacar la labor de los anfitriones, que son de gran ayuda y una gran fuente de conocimiento sobre Barcelona. Preguntarles a ellos es una de las mejores guías turísticas que existen.

    Una estancia perfecta.

  • J & J ovat erittäin miellyttäviä ja hauskoja isäntiä. Lisäetuna perhemajoituksessa omalta kannaltani oli mahdollisuus harjoitella espanjaa, joskin molemmat puhuvat loistavaa englantia! Neuvoja ja ohjeita sai niin paljon kuin halusi ja säännöt olivat loogiset ja selvät. Majoituin yksin toisessa vierashuoneessa, joten 140 cm sänky oli tosi riittävä ja huone tarpeeksi iso jopa isolle matkalaukulleni. Toisessa vierashuoneessa majoittui samanaikaisesti kaksi opiskelijatyttöä, joten kylpyhuonetta (jossa soi kiva musiikki) jakoi viisi oleskeluni aikana. Hintaan nähden OK ja lisäksi mitä suurimmassa määrin asennekysymys. Varaan jatkossakin mielelläni vastaavia huoneita kun haluan asua edullisesti. Korvatulpat olivat tarpeen öisin, sillä vaikka liikennettä ei kuule lainkaan, talon äänieristys ei ole parasta A-luokkaa. Täältä pääsi metrolla helposti kaikkialle ja lähikorttelit olivat viehättäviä. Vietin paljon aikaa kaupungilla, joten söin kaikki ateriani ulkona, vaikka keittiö olisi ollut kaikkien käytössä. SUOSITTELEN!

  • Pasé una excelente estancia con mi pareja en el apartamento de Jaume y Joan. La ubicación es excelente, a sólo unos pasos de la sagrada familia además la zona es muy tranquila y segura, hay todo tipo de servicios cerca como tiendas, banco, panadería, etc. La habitación es espaciosa y comoda. Jaume y Joan son muy buenos anfitriones, te dan tips de turista dependiendo del tiempo que tengas para visitar la ciudad. Altamente recomendable, volvería nuevamente.

  • Jaume y Joan Pere son como siempre maravillosos anfitriones, hicieron del todo para que me sintiera cómoda y no me faltara nada. Acogieron a mí y a mi padre y a sus amigos de la mejor manera posible.
    Siempre que vuelva a Barcelona, ¡volveré aquí!

  • Joan Pere & Jaume are a class act. If your Barcelona visit is motivated by interest in the history and culture of the city (and the broader Catalonia region), then this is your place. You will likely learn more from Jaume about Catalonia in a few days - about its rich heritage, accomplishments and the temperament of its people - than you will from any other source. And beyond a nice, secure place in the most desired part of the city (Sagrada Familia) both Joan Pere and Jaume offer great support, company, and conversation to enhance your visit.

  • I cannot speak highly enough of Jaume and Joan Pere. Great communication from the beginning, very well organised, was made to feel very welcome from the start.

    Two very friendly and well educated people with art and music in their soul. The apartment is situated in a very beautiful part of Eixample and both are able to offer you plenty of ideas and advice on what to see. The accommocation is as described, very cosy and comfortable with great attention to detail.

    Left feeling like saying goodbye to friends rather than hosts.

    If you are used to staying in souless hotels then seriously save yourself some money and go stay with these guys.

  • Le séjour a été vraiment agréable grâce à des hôtes hors normes!! Ils nous ont donné de supers conseils et connaissent vraiment la ville comme leur poche! Bavards et très sympathiques, nous vous recommandons leurs chambres avec enthousiasme!!!
    La chambre est d'ailleurs parfaite pour un couple souhaitant passer quelques jours à visiter la ville.
    L'appartement est très propre, avec parfois de la musique dans la cuisine et la salle de bain issue de leur impressionnante collection de cds. Un large choix de dvds était également disponible. Et donc après plusieurs jours à marcher de long en large dans la ville ce fut très appréciable de pouvoir profiter de leur grande télé confortablement depuis le canapé.
    Les cerises sur le gâteau furent les conseils de Jaume (sous peu ostéopathe) pour soulager les pieds et jambes fatigués ainsi que les conseils sur la préparation des fameuses Tapas (c'est vraiment très précis comme recette!)

    Merci encore à Jaume et Joan Pere pour leur accueil!

  • Joan Pere e Jaume são anfitriões realmente fantásticos! Nos deram dicas valiosas sobre a cidade e o bairro, o que tornou nossa estadia muito mais proveitosa. A dica da paella no restaurante ao lado do prédio valeu a viagem! Sem falar na gentileza de Jaume ao estar acordado às 6h num domingo para se assegurar de que não perderíamos o horário do trem. O apto é bem localizado e torna possível fazer tudo à pé. Também é bastante limpo e agradável. Maravilhoso!

    Joan Pere y Jaume son anfitriones estupendos! Nos han dado informaciones a cerca de la ciudad y del barrio que han hecho nuestros días ahí mucho más placenteros. La paella del restaurante al lado del piso vale cada céntimo! Ni hablar de lo amable que Jaume ha sido al despertarse las 6h de un domingo para asegurarse de que no perderíamos el tren. El piso está en una zona que permite caminar adonde quieras, además de ser bastante limpio y organizado. Maravilloso!

I was very pleased to meet them and will definetly stay with them again next time I will get back to Barcelona! Thank you Guapos - Besos :)
