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. ----------------------------------------------------------------

I really enjoyed my stay here. Raymond is beyond helpful and responsive to us and all our needs. He was really a great pleasure to work with. The apartment is exactly as depicted with all the comforts and amenities you would need for a comfortable stay. It is well located in a quiet area but close enough to walk to all the spots you want to see. The price is very reasonable the only bad part was walking up and down 5 flights of stairs with all the baby gear that we had and luggage we brought for our 2 week stay. If you don't have a lot of luggage - this place would be perfect for you.
Raimundo met us at the apartment and spent a lot of time acquainting us with both the apt. and the neighborhood. Since we had airline problems and were delayed twice, I especially appreciate his flexibility. He had already communicated with us regarding questions and activities. He was very quick to respond and gave sound advice.. He set up a taxi for our departure and communicated details to us. He also let us know we could contact him anytime.
The apartment was very nice andclean and comfortable. It's in a good neighborhood, and the building was very quiet.
This was my first airbnb rental, and I felt very comfortable working with Raimundo.
Raimundo and his beautiful apartment made our stay in Barcelona absolutely perfect! Raimundo is the most wonderful of hosts! He welcomed us at the apartment and showed us many different places on a map that he recommended. The apartment was the ideal base for our explorations of Barcelona and proved the pictures to be entirely accurate. It was very clean, welcoming, nicely decorated and had the best air conditioning we've had the pleasure to experience!
We would definitely recommend staying at Raimundo's apartment and can't wait to come back in the future.
A beautiful apartment! The best location. So close to everything! Raimundo was the kindest person. He sat down with us and showed us all the great things about Barcelona. We will definitely go back to Barcelona and stay in one of Raimundo's apartment.
Raimundo couldn't have been a more welcoming and thoughtful host. He is a genuinely nice man and was truly committed to making our stay as enjoyable as possible. He spent a good hour with us upon our arrival going over the amenities of the apartment and providing us a map with personalized directions for getting to various sights and locations throughout the city. He truly bent over backwards to make us feel welcome to this wonderful city. He also helped us set up a cab pickup to the airport, which left us one less thing to worry about on our last day. The property itself is very conveniently located in the El Born district, within walking distance of the beach, the Gothic quarter, the Ramblas, the Barcelona Cathedral and just a minute or two walk to a Metro station. The apartment was comfortable and thoughtfully appointed with modern touches.
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.
