About This Listing
2 minute walk from Plaza Catalunya. One bed studio apartment, all to yourself. I have been doing this since 2008, so you are in safe hands. Can sleep 3 people. No deposit. Checkin flexible, lets discuss!
The apartment is a designer jewel, newly renovated and furnished with 20thC modern classics by Le Corbusier, Eileen Gray, and Phillipe Starck. Contemporary works by American and European artists complement the decor. Distinctive structural ironwork by Barcelona craftsmen contrasts with the 19thC hand-painted, beamed ceiling. Carrer dels Tallers, a pedestrian street that crosses the northern most part of the Old City of Barcelona, begins at the famous Ramblas just below Plaza Catalunya and ends at the Plaza de la Universidad. Tallers has been described as the most characteristic street of the North Raval Barrio. Just around the corner is the sleek new Museum of Contemporary Art designed by Richard Meier. Galleries, boutiques, cafes and restaurants complement the many traditional shops and restaurants in the neighborhood. The area is becoming Barcelona's equivalent of New York's Soho, and was recently described by La Vanguardia as 'the emerging neighbourhood in Barcelona'.

Interaction with Guests
In some very rare circumstances, I myself may not be there to check you in. Generally this is if I am traveling for work. I will always be available by email and I am as hands-on or off as you want me to be.
Food is great. Both eating out and quality ingredients for cooking at home. I have a document with the places I love which I share with you once you arrive.
I suggest you get the aerobus when you get out of the terminal. Take this to the city and get off at the stop Plaza Universitad. From here you are a 5 minute walk to the apartment and in case you have problems finding the street when you get off the bus, ask for calle Tallers.
If you are coming by car, there is a large public car park on our street (calle tallers).
No rules as such, just a few things that I would appreciate.
Trash can be taken out to dumpsters in front of the building.
Late at night be respectful of neighbors etc.
Be conscious of security and always be be sure to lock terrace and apartment door.
Smoking on the terrace only please.
Conserve energy when possible, there's no need to heat an empty apartment, it heats up quickly.
Lovely apartment, easy access to the Ramblas and subways. This is one of the better apartments my girlfriend and I have stayed at with Airbnb.
Nous avons été très bien accueillis par Tom le frère de Eoin, qui parle très bien français. Très chaleureux, convivial, et disponible. Il nous a laissé une liste des endroits où manger et où aller pour vivre comme les barcelonnais. Il a été de bon conseil pour notre séjour. Eoin était également très sympathique et disponible par mail. L'appartement est très agréable, très bien situé près de la place de la catalogne et des ramblas comme des lignes de bus et métro pour visiter la ville et des gares . L'appartement est moderne et bien entretenu, la literie très confortable. Très bon séjour
Eoin's apartment was wonderful. We were met by his brother, Tom. He helped us with our luggage downstairs and showed us around the apartment and recommended restaurants for us to eat at. The apartment was very cleaned and our towels and such were laid out for us.
The apartment was perfect for me and my boyfriend. The AC was directed right towards the bed so we were very comfortable sleeping. It was very spacious. We had enough room to get ready in the mornings without bumping into each other. There is an iron so just in case your clothes are a little wrinkly from your suitcase, you can iron them! There is also a table where you can lay out your things or even eat there if you cook in the kitchen. There is a small wall of mirrors that I used to get ready in the morning to apply makeup and do my hair. It was very convenient!
The kitchen has pretty much everything. We didn't cook so that's pretty much all I can say.
The bathroom was small but it wasn't uncomfortable. We did run out of toilet paper the last day (we stayed for 5 days).
Lastly, the apartment was in the perfect area. We were right next to Las Ramblas. The Areobus stop is about 5 minutes away max so it was a short walk. It surprisingly wasn't noisy! There are some shops near the apartment however we didn't hear any loud noises. At night, it may seem a little sketchy however we didn't encounter anything weird or scary. Just beware of your surroundings.
I highly recommend Eoin's place!! It is clean, in a great location and very comfortable!
Eoin's brother, Tom, very graciously waited for us as flight was two hours late in arriving even though we were unable to text him about our delay. Although late for a meeting, he took the time to explain everything we needed to know about the apartment and the area. His list of recommendations was very helpful as this was our first time in Barcelona.
The listing was exactly as pictured and described - nothing more, nothing less.
We had a lovely stay at Eoin and Tom's airbnb. We could check in late at night and leave our luggage with our hosts for the last day before flying back which was very convenient.
The flat could not be more central, was very clean and the bed comfortable (would not have been better in a hotel). Tom (Eoin's brother) welcomed us and was very helpful and flexible for us.
We would definitely come back and recommend to anyone looking for a central location, you can easily explore both southern and northern sides by foot from there!
Thanks Tom & Eoin!
