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).

Enjoyed a lovely stay and agree that Raimundo was very helpful and attentive. Location couldn't be better, yes there are a few stairs to climb but worth it!
Best AirBnB host ever! We arrived very late due to a flight change with the airlines that was out of our control. Raimundo was very accommodating and understanding of the situation. He meet us at the flat in the wee hours of the morning with a smile and a warm welcome. He took his time to share some insight into the city, showing us places and neighborhoods on the map and providing some super delicious restaurant recommendations. To top it all off, the flat is adorable, stylish, clean and comfortable. Raimundo helped to make our first visit ever to the lovely city of Barcelona a success. We will definitely be back to Barcelona again and if we're lucky we will stay here again. Thank you Raimundo!
I’ve been a AirBNB advocate for years, this experience topped them all! The apartment is perfect, stunning with all the amenities to feel at home. Location was right where we needed to feel part of Barcelona but easy access to all the tourist places we wanted to check out! The bed was comfy, shower strong and AC a godsend! The best part – Raimundo. By far the most engaging host to date. From helping me with my luggage, to providing great restaurant options to drawing us a map of all the must see locations. He made our trip perfect.
Raimundos apt in Barcelona was great. Nice and open and completely redone in an older building and neighborhood. Great surrounding areas being in el borne, close to las ramblas and plaza catalunya. Right by the arc de triumf train station which you must take a cercania train from there to sant pol de mar (raimundos recommendation.). What a beautiful ride on that train along most of the beaches and sant pol is picture perfect. He also recommended great restaurants in the area and all were great. I would definitely return.
My first time in Barcelona with my partner. Raimundo was absolutely fantastic! Gave us instant replies when booking the apartment and offered to arrange travel from the airport for us.
Met us outside the entrance the apartment and was an absolute delight to meet and was SO friendly. Showed us all we needed to know in the BEAUTIFUL apartment! Raimundo was so kind to sit down with us and show us a map of Barcelona and all the areas to visit and the best way to get there.
I could speak for ages and ages about Raimundo and how easy and pleasurable he made our stay. We got engaged whilst we were visiting and this was the perfect base for us to come and enjoy after long days of walking visiting the sites.
Don't hesitate or consider other places, this is an ideal apartment in a fantastic location near bars, restaurants, shops, metro station... Whilst keeping its charm and peace in the heart of a great city! THANK YOU RAIMUNDO!!!
I stayed 4 days at the apartment of Raimundo. The apartment is in a very nice street (just 5-10 minutes away from la rambla with feet) and quiet neighborhood! The apartment is exactly like the pictures here! Same beautiful!! Because our flight we checked-in a little earlier and Raimundo explained us evvverything we had to know about barcelona! He is a really really nice and heartly man and in case we could call him everytime we needed him. But everything was great with this very beautiful apartment, so we didn't had to call him. We had a wonderful time at barcelona and at this apartment and sure we're coming back soon! Again in Raimundo's apartment! I'm so happy about this vacations and also to meet you Raimundo! Big hug for you! Best wishes! And again, thank you so much! Luana
