Getting around

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

This was my first time booking with AirBnB and as a woman travelling alone with my 2 daughters naturally I was a little nervous about being greeted in an apartment by a man I did not know. However the minute we met Raimundo he immediately made me feel completely at ease and was a fabulous host. He spent time showing us the points of interest on a map and giving us tips of how to get there. Raimundo was very helpful and informative offering us recommendations for restaurants, supermarkets and fun activities to do with the kids. The apartment felt very safe, it was exactly as it looks on the pictures, and was immaculately clean. I will definitely return.

The flat is perfect. It is exactly as advertised and that means pretty darned great. It's located about 10 min from the Aerobus station at Plaça de Cataluyan (excuse any spelling errors) in a lovely winding street. I'll admit the walk-up can be a bit much with luggage but once you're there and settled it's a dream. And everything is so close fr

Not sure what I can say that hasn't already been said. Raimundo is an AMAZING host. The apartment was great and is in an EXCELLENT location. Sure you have to climb a few flights of stairs to get there but it's well worth it and expected in Europe. Plus it's a great way to burn some extra calories after eating all the FANTASTIC food Barcelona has to offer. The apartment was clean and exactly what we expected based on the pictures and the other reviews. The apartment has Wi-Fi which is more or less necessary when traveling to other countries. The shower has great water pressure, although at times it left my wife without hot water but that's mainly due to the fact that I would take such long showers before her. The french windows were a plus and the Nespresso Machine made me feel right at home. My wife and I would definitely stay at Raimundo's place again if we ever make it back to Barcelona which I hope we do. Cheers!

We loved everything about staying in Raimundo's romantic apartment in barri gothic. It was as advertised and more! The bed is heavenly. The neighborhood quiet and quaint, walkable, close to transit and anything we wanted to do. Raimundo is the perfect host. Friendly, welcoming and helpful. His recommendations proved to be most enchanting. We got around Barcelona quite well and felt at home in the charming apartment. The pictures are actual. It's small and cozy but absolutely comfortable, with a nice bathroom and shower, lots of natural light, two balconies, equipped with whatever we needed and Raimundo had also provided a few things for the morning to us us started. A bit of warning: 4 flights of stairs will keep you in shape! You'll love Barcelona and especially if you stay here as a guest of Raimundo.

Raimundos apartment is in the most perfect location in Barcelona, its in the heart of the Born district which makes you feel immediately like a local. The stairs are a welcome exercise, to eating and enjoying tapas on vacation, and the space is perfect for a couple on a long stay. The apartment itself is centrally located but very quiet at night and perfect for a good nights sleep. The bed is very comfortable, which is hard to find on AirBnB's and the kitchen was perfect for all our needs to cook in the nights and mornings we chose to. Raimundo was the ultimate host, making checkin a breeze and offering dozens of recommendations for local eats and things to do that other tour sites may not list, seeing the city as a local which me and my husband love. The bathroom had a slight smell at times, due to the sewer system in the neighborhood, but we shut the door and this seemed to take care of the problem, we told Raimundo and he is looking into it. The shower pressure is amazing and the light and space in both the living area and bathroom were perfect. The Wifi is very fast and we had everything we needed right outside our doors, for the perfect exploration of Barcelona.
