We arranged this apartment as a spacious apartment (large dining room, large kitchen, large bathroom), so it is very comfortable!
It is in a quiet location, and very well located, 20 minute-walk from the city center and the olympic beaches. You can see the Sagrada Familia from the street (though is a 20-minute walk too!)
It is a spacious apartment (75m2 – 2 rooms) for 4 people (6 with the sofa-bed), refurbished kitchen with microwave and oven, big bathroom with bath, 2 sleeping rooms (used to be 4), heating in winter, washing/drying machine, typical Eixample balcony.
Official registry number is HUTB-001125.
Large living room with sofa-bed, stereo speakers to plug in your iPod or MP3, TV with DVD, wi-fi internet, lift. Food market and supermarket at 100m distance.
Very well connected: close to bus-station Estació del Nord and train station Arc de Triomf. Bull-fighting square Plaza de toros Monumental at 200meters. Near the city center and Born area.
Perfect to live every day a different experience in Barcelona and come back walking (specially at night, where its difficult to find taxis).

Akira was an amazing host and though it was a bit challenging finding each other at the airport given MWC (massive conference) was going on, he was very proactive in getting us on the right track. The apartments are as described and everything about our stay was as seamless as possible. Akira is a friendly, accommodating and considerate host who really seems to care about his tenants and making sure their stay is as easy as possible. He is incredibly approachable and easy to work with. I highly recommend staying at any of his properties, and would stay again in a heartbeat the next time I'm in Barcelona!
is exactly like pictures shows

The reservation was canceled 8 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
We had a fabulous time in Barcelona, the apartment was in a great location and Akira helped us with any queries. Would recommend to anyone.
Great place, lots of space, great location, and Akira was very helpful. Would definitely stay here again the next time I am back in Barcelona.
My family and I (total 6 people, aged from 30 to 67) have spent three nights here and had a comfortable stay.
The apartment is spacious with high ceilings so it did not feel too crowded. It has a large bathroom with good shower over bath. The kitchen is adequately equipped for this number of people. We loved our mornings with the balcony doors wide open :-) It can be pretty noisy even at night with the traffic passing by but this is well compensated by close proximity to Marina underground station, walking distance to Sagrada Familia and perfect connection to Girona airport from the bus station 5 mins away. For Barcelona airport bus, Placa Catalunya is either 20 walk or short bus ride away. There is a lift in the building so overall it was great for my elderly mum with a hip problem. The area seemed to be safe for walking even late at night.
Akira offered that he could be contacted via phonecall or email if there were any problems. I have given Akira feedback on cleanlines and hope that this can be easily improved in the future. I would recommed this apartment to anyone whose priority is space and reasonable distance to the city centre.
Had a great weekend in this apartment. We were a party of 3 and we stayed four days, and it was perfect for our short break. I would sincerely recommend this to other people thinking of travelling to Barcelona who perhaps don't want to share an apartment with someone else. The decor was simple and contemporary within a lovely old style block with large windows and wooden shutters. Great for a small family or couple. Transport links were superb with Marina Metro just on the corner and tram links as well, and Arc de Triomf just a little further away with rail links as well. But both the centre and the beach were easily walkable within 15-20 minutes. Akira provided an excellent information pack and made sure everything was ready for our arrival. The busy road outside may be a negative for some, but not a problem for me personally; afterall you are in a busy city that doesn't really go to sleep! There wasn't a lot of places to go and eat in the immediate vacinity but there are markets and supermarkets within easy reach of the apartment. I'd definitely use it again when I go back to Barcelona.
