This room is extremely bright and quiet, as it has sunshine all day long. You can enjoy the sunset directly from your window or on the large terrace directly next to the room. The room can easily accommodate 2 adults and a child as we have a spare bed available (as well as a travel cot for babies). (shampoo and shower gel are available)
The room is very large, and has its own bathroom with sink, shower and toilet.
We welcome families with kids and babies. We have plenty of toys, videos, games, to keep the little ones busy and are happy to lend you a baby trolley for those long walks through Barcelona. Also, we can offer you a yoga-mat for your practice up next to the pool.
The 19 EUR / 25 USD price is the super discounted price we apply to fill the gaps in our calendar. The rate appears by default on some views on airbnb when you do not indicate your required dates of booking. We make the rate available when we have 2 bookings with 1-2 gap days in between, and want to fill those days. So, when that happens, we basically give the room away for next to nothing, simply to collect some extra feedback and get better positioned on airbnb.
Please fill in your desired dates to get an accurate pricing for this room. Rates in Barcelona can vary enormously depending on the congresses held in the city and other important events in terms of lodging demand.
We're a multi-national family living in Catalonia since 8 years, loving every day of our life as Barcelonians.
We live in a very large apartment in the hills of Barcelona, near the famous Parc Guell, the Tibidabo Tramvia Blau, the child-friendly Science touch- Museum, and many other Barcelona attractions. The apartment had a huge terrace, and the building has a covered rooftop swimming pool and solarium which our kids absolutely love!
We live near two metro stations, only minutes away from Barcelona's bustling old town. The extraordinary Bar Mirabe (www-mirabe-com/en) is only a short walk away, and from there you can take the cable car to Barcelona's highest viewpoint, the Tibidabo peak. Kids will love the amusement park's attractions up there while parents can relax and admire the stunning views.
Our apartment has 2 guest rooms, which are conveniently separate from the family's rooms, assuring you maximum privacy and comfort. We have a lot of friends visiting us, so the rooms are not always available - please check the calendar before booking!
Please note all our apartment is strictly no smoking, including the apartment's terrace. Smoking is allowed on the rooftop terrace on the 6th floor, near the swimming pool.

I read all the reviews before booking. Very straight forward: great location, great hosts. You are staying in a lovely apartment. I stayed for 5 nights and Ilona always wanted to make my stay more enjoyable. She emailed me a list of places for lunch&dinner that I might enjoy. Room is good but Ilona and her family make it great.....
Nous avons passé un excellent séjour chez Alex et Ilona. Ilona a accomodé une arrivée tôt en journée et a coordonné un transport à coût très raisonnable pour un départ pour l'aéroport très tôt dimanche matin. Cela nous a grandement aidé. Ilona est très acceuillante, organisée et plaisante à cotoyer. Les enfants sont tout aussi accueillants et notre fils a beaucoup aimé jouer avec eux. L'appartement est tel que décrit et comme sur les photos. La chambre et le salon familial sont très spacieux. La salle de bain est petite mais réponds aux besoins. La terrasse est super! Tout près de Tibidabo, Musée des science, Park Guell. Métro et bus tout près. Nous retournerions sans hésiter! Une excellente expérience Airbnb.
As everyone mentioned below, Ilona and her kids were the perfect hosts. Ilona was very thoughtful, kind and vivacious. She really cared us, and we just felt very comfortable to stay there. l and and Her kids were also perfect! They were well-educated, kind, polite and even lovely! My husband and I brought our 5 year old daughter there, and she really liked them though she couldn't perfectly communicate with them because she was not able to speak in English. The room and other spaces were exactly like the pictures posted, and the location was also good. Many bus stops, subway stations and city tour bus stop were very near to the apartment, so we didn't have any difficulty in traveling the city. Ilona gave us several tips for tour and we could enjoy more fun during our stay. It was a really pleasant experience to stay in the apartment, and I strongly recommend Ilona's place!.
IIona is one of the best hosts I had on Airbnb. She's warm,welcoming and her stories are extraordinary. The house is very nice. And my bf and I loved terrace and the rooftop pool.
IIona,thank you for keeping me company when I was alone and thank you for sharing your stories. Hope to see u again, either in Barcelona or maybe even in China!
Our stay at the apartment was really lovely. Ilona and Alex are very kind and great hosts! We felt very welcome in the apartment! The only trouble we had was a leaking shower and it is a bit far from downtown.
My stay with Alex and Ilona was short but sweet!
Location is brilliant: five minutes walk to and from closest train station ( not even five mins), very close to fresh fruit supermarkets, banks, restaurants and local bars as well as stairs parks available for avid runners and fitness types- the views from puntxet park(5 mins away)are incredible!!!
Las ramblas -catalunya or city hub itself is a mere 4 stops away! Getting to and from all tourist hot spots is easy, practical, plus Ilona is super helpful- she assisted me to the city centre on my first day- explaining the train, train tickets, and any info requested, which was very kind! I also had the option for airport transfers which again was helpful!!
The room itself is big and spacious! My plane was delayed, and when I arrived the room was perfect as described, filled with sunshine, big and spacious and completely comfortable. During my stay I felt like I was staying in a private hotel let alone a singular room!! It was Perfect!
In the end I loved Barcelona best of all my travels so far, and accommodation was a big factor for me. I highly recommend staying here!
Ilona was very good to communicate with and provided excellent advice & information regarding getting to the apartment. During our stay Ilona went out of her way to assist us to have the very best experience in Barcelona.
The children were discreet and a pleasure to meet.
My 4-year-old daughter and I stayed with Ilona and Alex for four nights. Getting to the apartment from the airport by public transport was no problem, thanks to their instructions. The room was exactly as expected and the children gave us a very warm welcome (after my daughter lightly bumped heads with the youngest child - they were playing straight away - her new friend ran straight to the kitchen to get an ice-pack!). The kitchen has all the utensils you need, plus a welcome bottle of Cava, and there are plenty of small supermarkets five minutes' walk away. The nearby Metro station means it could barely be easier to reach anywhere in the city, and of course travelling by Metro is a great way to get to know Barcelona (especially with a child - people are particularly friendly). We strongly recommend visiting CosmoCaixa, the science centre near the apartment. It's great to be in a family environment but also have the space to relax at the end of (very) long days exploring the city. We definitely recommend staying with the Mandls, and my daughter has asked for a permanent move!
Nice place for folks who like being around children. Ilona, Alex and family are very international!
Had a great stay at Ilona and Alex's place in Barcelona. It is a short walk to the subway from where you can easily get to any place of interest in the city. We purchased tickets for the Hop on, Hop off city bus tour for our first day which was a great way to get acquainted with the city. The Sagrada de Familia was most impressive be in line by 8:30 (opens at 9:00) to avoid lines. You can also buy tickets on line to save time. Ilona was a great hostess and made us feel very comfortable during our stay and provided a fan on our request. We enjoyed the large desk and chairs in the bedroom as well. They also arranged for a friend of theirs (Sasha) to pick us up at the airport and drop us off when our visit was over, this saved us 30% on the cost of taxi's plus he knew exactly how to not only take us to their address but took us right up to their apartment. The price was pre-agreed so we didn't need to worry about being taken for a ride (so to speak). On the return trip he pick us up right at their door and dropped us off at the airport. Be sure to ask to see if this service is still available.
