HOW TO REACH THE APARTMENT
From the Barcelona airport "EL PRAT ..." you can take a taxi (approx. cost about 35 or 40 euros) or take a special bus called Aerobus (cost is 6 euros). If you take the Aerobus, go to the last stop in the city center of Barcelona called La Plaza de Catalunya. Here you will find the beginning of Fontanella street. Follow Fontanella street. Turn right on Via Layetana. Follow Via Layetana until you get to Carrer de Sant Pere Mes Alt. (you will also see signs for Palau de la Musica) At number 52 Carrer de Sant Pere Mes Alt turn right on Monec Street, Number 25 Monec Street is your arrival destination. The total time to walk from La Plaza de Catalunya to the apartment is less than 10 minutes.
From Girona airport you can just take a bus to Barcelona ending in the North Station , very close to home . You have to walk to Arc de Triomf , once you are in front of the arch, turn right and take Trafalgar Street ( opposite direction to cars ) to Calle Mendez Nuñez and turn left and end right find street Sant pere Mes Alt , you turn righ and find half MONEC street ( second left ) .
If you arrive by train , for example Sants station , you have to change the platform number 8 and take any train to Arc de Triomf.
Or other optión is take the metro, green line until Catalunya station in Catalunya Square and then follow my tips like if your arrival is in the Aerobus in Catalunya Square from the airport. ( buy the T 10 for 10 times, 1 ZONA, you can use together).
PLEASE CALL FROM THE AIRPORT OR PLACE OF ARRIVAL AFTER PICKING YOUR LUGGAGE SO THAT WE CAN DECIDE TOGETHER, THE TIME OF RECEPTION AT THE APARTMENT. ----------------------------------------------------------------

Raimundo was so helpful and very organized in getting us settled in his apt. He had a map to review with us...highlighting key things to see while helping us be oriented to the city. The apt was lovely, clean and well stocked. It was also a great location and we thought it was a good value for the price. The only challenge was being on the 5 th floor without an elevator in 88 degree weather. Otherwise it was great!
My partner and I had an amazing four nights staying at Raimundos apartment in Barcelona. It is in a perfect position and the flat it well equipped for a short stay. He was helpful and pointed out lots of places of interest. We would not hesitate to book again or recommend to friends.
Raimundo and the apartment were perfect! Raimundo accommodated our early arrival, provided us with fantastic advice and certainly made us very confident that he was there to assist us. The apartment was light filled, tastefully decorated and in the perfect position to explore the city. It had all the facilities you could need. We absolutely loved every minute of our time in Barcelona and meeting Raimundo and staying in his apartment certainly made our stay richer.
This is a beautiful, cozy flat in a fantastic neighbourhood. Raimundo is friendly, thoughtful, helpful, very thorough, and professional. Highly recommended.
Raimundo is an excellent host. Kind, friendly, funny, responsive and helpful. He was away for a few days and gave us a contact of a friend in case we needed to. The flat is nearby Palau de la Musica and close by main attraction areas. The room is comfortable with plenty of daylight and nicely decorated. Hairdryer, laundry, coffee makers, a few condiments and an iron are provided. Understand that the flat is on the 4th floor (5th floor US version) with no lift, climbing the stairs is a work out. This is our fifth flat in Spain and we are very happy with every one of them.
Dear Pattima, thank you so much for your review. Was a great experience. I remember you that I need to clarify you that the first door wasn't a real flat in the past, Was the place for introduce things for the shops downstairs and he don't have the same height of others floors. Will be great to have them to you two, again in my apartment. You two are always welcome. Thank you.
This flat is the most beautiful space in the most beautiful location. We absolutely loved every minute of staying here, and we were so disappointed we weren't staying in Barcelona longer. This flat is immaculate and has AC which was a huge plus... I hope Raimundo keeps this place on Airbnb for a long time because we are absolutely coming back and I would only stay here.
Raimundo (the host) was probably the nicest person I've ever met. He was so excited to have us as guests, and he was honored that we chose his place (he told us many times!). He stayed with us for almost an hour to explain the area, restaurant suggestions, etc. We ended going to all of his suggestions and they were AWESOME.
GREAT place, GREAT host, GREAT area... You must book with Raimundo if you're staying in Barcelona!
Dear Amanda and Nik, Thank you very much for your amazing review. It's one of the most beautifull that one person write me. Thank you again. You two are always welcome. I wish you all the best and to be lucky to have you again in my apartments. I wish for a long time. Regards.
We had an amazing stay in Barcelona at Raimundo's flat. It's beautiful and very central to everything you could want in Barcelona. The flat is spacious and bright. Raimundo was a very gracious and helpful host. He met us at the beginning and end of our trip and made sure we had everything we needed. He was very responsive and helpful when we had questions. I highly recommend this flat - great host, perfect location and lovely, warm place to stay!
