The Neighborhood

The Barceloneta area was virtually uninhabited until the mid eighteenth century. Due to its proximity to the sea, the fishermen were the first to settle in this part of town, but their conditions were really poor. In 1754 they began to build the first houses and the neighborhood was filled with fishermen and people related to port activity in the area.

Currently, the district still has that air of foreign people to the city that has always characterized it. But the environment has changed a lot, especially in summer. The beach is one of the liveliest of the city both day and night, when they open the bars and music bars installed in the same arena where you can go to dinner or a drink until the wee hours of the morning.

Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • This ground-floor apartment is located in one of those shady streets in the Barceloneta neighborhood. It is apparent that many visitors stayed there before us, it was a good place to stay for one night, but we wouldn't consider staying longer because of the noisiness, humidity and the immediate street orientation.

  • The check in process was great - and the host was always readily available and very quick with all communication - if you are looking for a place near the beach the location is great the apartment is clean and has everything you need including a washing machine - I would recommend the place my only concern was there was a damp smell as others have so mentioned

  • The place looks nicer in the pictures. I was surprised when I arrived and realized that the doorway opens right into the street. Although the location is nice, near the beach. The place had a musty smell and if you don't close all the windows you will hear every street noise and people will see into the bedroom as they walk by. You must empty the dehumidifiers as they run 24/7. Kristian was hard to get ahold of. We had to call airbnb because we could not reach him . His SMS only rule is a little stiff as someone visiting from outside of Europe it's hard to get an SMS message if you don't have a European phone.

  • The location is perfect, 2 min walking to beach and boardwalk. 10 min walking to old city. The flat was really super cozy and efficient, clean. The guy who helped us with the room, was super nice and helpful. The area was really quite and cute.
    We were totally happy with our choice of room.

  • Thank you Kristian for your great flat! My wife, daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed our short but excellent adventure in Barcelona. Location was perfect, walked along the beach, stopped a lot and drank sangria, ate tapas and weather was perfect.

    Also thank you for being very available for us and offering to accept my wife's delayed luggage.

    Enjoy the bottle of Merlot we left, my wife and I enjoy that Napa Valley winery.

    You are always welcome in Northern California to stay with us in the future.

    Thank you again!

  • Wir waren 5 Tage in Barcelona. Der Urlaub in dieser wundervollen Stadt hat uns sehr gut gefallen. Die Wohnung von Kristian ist sehr liebevoll eingerichtet und hat eine perfekte Lage. Zu Fuß sind es nur 2 Minuten zum Strand.
    Allerdings gibt es ein großes Problem. Im Schlafzimmer sind die Wände von Schimmel befallen. Deshalb haben wir im Wohnzimmer geschlafen. Der Geruch war sehr unangenehm. Kristian müsste versuchen dieses Problem zu lösen.

    We were 5 days in Barcelona. We have liked the vacation in this wonderful town very well. The flat of Kristian is furnished very affectionately and has a perfect situation. On foot these are only 2 minutes to the beach.
    Indeed, there is a big problem. In the bedroom the walls are struck by mould. Therefore, we have slept in the sitting room. The smell was very disagreeable. Kristian would have to try to solve this problem.

  • Joli appartement, très bien situé à 5 minutes de la plage et 15 minutes de la Rambla. Seuls défauts l'humidité dans l'appartement et le bruit la nuit comme l'appartement est situé au rez de chaussée.

    May 2014
  • Nous avons passé un merveilleux séjour ensoleillé dans un quartier typique et plein de charme!
    si je devais revenir à Barcelone, je louerais, sans aucun doute, un logement dans ce quartier que j'adore et proche de toutes les commodités!le bus et les supermachés tous proches, le metro à deux pas! c'est génial
    Le logement n'est pas très bien isolé mais on y a passé une belle semaine quand même, il est confortable!
    Merci Kristian, en espérant revenir bientôt !
    cordialement Lysiane
