TIPS FOR BARCELONA:
What to see:
I recommend taking the BUS TURISTIC which is the hop on – hop off bus. You can enjoy the ride around the city and see, from the outside most of the most important architecture of our beautiful city (Sagrada Familia, Park Guell, Palace, Montjuich, Pueblo Español..). This will give you a perfect glance of the entire city and it is absolutely the best way to have an birds eye of Barcelona.
Once you have seen (but not visited) all….we recommend you to ….
Enjoy the bike lanes!!! Cycling in the city is the best way to visits its places.…and go home with a fit body!!!
Cycling up all Paseo de Gracia and walk down all Rambla de Cataluña. Paseo de Gracia has beautiful Gaudi architecture, international shopping and sites. Rambla de Cataluña (with a pedestrian strolling area in the center of the street) will offer more local shopping, tapas places (Cerveceria Catalana) and little coffee shops.
Walk the Gothic. Walk down Las Ramblas and enter in the Boqueria market (best in the early morning hours…8am). Have tapas in Bar Cañete, take Ferran Street and cross Via Layetana to get Argentería street. Stop in front of the amazing Santa Maria del Mar church and enter into La Viña del Señor for a wine and cheese stop. Border the church through its right and end up in the El Borne neighborhood. Have fun through the one of a kind stores and then walk to the Picasso Museum. Walk then to the Santa Caterina Market and cross to The Cathedral to find Portaferrissa Street and end up in Plaza Cataluña.
Where to eat:
Easy price: Cervecería Catalana, Bar Cañete ((website hidden)), Lolita ((website hidden)), Cuines Santa Caterina, Bar Lobo, Fabrica Moritz, Quimet Quimet.
Medium Price Restaurants: Igueldo, Boca Grande, Tragaluz, Mordisco, Kilo, Passadis d’en Pep, Can Majo.
- RESPECT YOUR NEIGHBOURS, no load/night parties are allowed. If I receive complaints from any of the neighbors or the police, due to inappropriate behavior on your part, you will be expelled from the apartment is the time that is, losing the security and the right to terminate your stay in the apartment, and you do not return the amount of days that ye may be hosted from expulsion.
- All trash should be taken out (trash containers on the corner of the street block)
Alessandro jest bardzo miłym, pomocnym i kontaktowym gospodarzem :-)) Cierpliwie oprowadził po całym mieszkaniu, tłumacząc zasady użytkowania. Przygotował mapy Barcelony i zaznaczył miejsca głównych atrakcji. Mieszkanie w pełni wyposażone:) jest wszystko czego zapragniecie. 100% zgodność z opisem. Wszystko działa. Bardzo wygodne łóżka, można spać w hamaku:) Lodówka zawsze pełna :) Mieszkanie w bardzo dobrej lokalizacji, przy stacji metra "la monumental", 500 metrów do Sagrady Family, 1 km do Torre Agbar, 2 km do Casa Mila, 3 km do parku Guell, 2 km do plaży. W budynku zabytkowa winda, jak z filmu:) Dobry dojazd z lotniska dwoma środkami transportu. Z okna piękny widok na Barcelonę i wnętrze Plaza de toros, która jest tuż obok, udostępniona do zwiedzania. W nocy widać monflauery z Magic Fountain. Do dyspozycji gości są 4 rowery!!! Dla tych, którzy chcą inaczej zwiedzać Barcelonę. Polecam przejechać się nocą ulicą Diagonal i promenadą nadmorską lub do Torre Agbar następnie plac Tetuan, gdzie na ławce wypijecie wino patrząc na pomnik inspirowany stylem Gaudiego i latające nietoperze, następnie Arc de Triomf, który widać z pod pomnika:) Blisko do kilku piekarni i lidla. Obok mały sklep spożywczy, Tabacos (można kupić bilety) i bar z parasolami, gdzie smacznie zjecie i coś wypijecie. Szczerze polecamy:) Pozdrawiamy Cię Alessandro:-) i do zobaczenia
My family and I had a great stay over Alessandro flat. It was very clean, very spacious and had all we need to make our stay comfortable! Just like home away from home! Alessandro is a great host as well! The area could not better located, stone throw to the beach and fairly short walk to tourists attractions, Gotic, Born parts etc. I will be back next year for sure! Grazie Mille Alessandro
BEST BnB in Barcelona!!! What makes this place so special ... LOCATION & the kind & thoughtful HOST, Alessandro. He provides so many conveniences for his guests; baskets for your belongings, cozy bathrobes and WONDERFUL homemade breakfasts!!! Rooms are bright, nicely decorated & very clean. Even has a W&D if needed. Bikes are available for touring the city too if you have time.
There is a lift which is awesome since the apartment is on the 7th floor:)
Alessandro communicates with his guests in a timely fashion. His recommendations for places to see & dining experiences were very much appreciated.
In our opinion, Alessandro goes ABOVE & BEYOND for his guests & should be voted AirBnB HOST of the YEAR!!!
Alessandro and his apartment are AMAZING! We had a late check-in, but he was still so accommodating and welcoming. His apartment was trendy, clean, nice, and just awesome. We had an amazing trip to Barcelona largely because of Alessandro and his apartment. I would highly recommend anyone to stay here. The beds were very comfortable, wifi worked great, the bath robes were awesome, and the kitchen was fully equipped. The location was also a bonus because the metro stop was right outside and it was a quick walk to other places like La Sagrada Familia. This was the best airbnb experience, and it made our trip perfect. We are so thankful for Alessandro's hospitality and his kindness for welcoming us into his home. THANK YOU! And everyone stay here, I promise it will be a great experience!!
Alessandro's house always neat and tidy For each question was available to help us with all the courtesy that distinguishes The location of the house is perfect the only thing missing from the room in the beginning is a convector About breakfast would be good more variety (Greeks eat a large amount of breakfast) Alessandro be well hope in the future we can come back again
Alessandro is the perfect host, kind, friendly and very willing to help you.
The apartment is very well located and is kept to a very high standard with some great features and attention to detail.
The breakfasts were fantastic!
Staying with Alessandro is highly recommended.

About the Host, Alessandro
Im a laid back guy who likes to meet people from all around the world. I enjoy clubbing, art, music and playing sports of all kinds namely, swimm and snowboarding. Food is also a great passion of mine both eating and cooking :-) I have just bought a flat and happy to let some guests stay.
My mission: to see, experience and appreciate as much of the world as possible.
LIVE THE CITY AS A LOCAL DO... here some useful tips:
*Don't orden a beer, order a "CANYA" and you'll get a 25 cl glass of draught beer. When you make a toast, say "CHIN-CHIN" or "SALUT", salut is the top local toast!
* Locals will be thankful if you try to talk some spanish, but you will win their hearts if you do it in Catalan. Say "BON DIA" for goodmorning or "ADEU" for goodbye. Easy way to win their sympathy...if you chose it!!
* Natives love being outside, especially at night. Since smoking has been banned in bars, people tend to gather in front of bars and pubs. Watch your behavior at that time: yelling, singing, drinking alcohol, removing your shirt or pissing in the street can get you a juicy fine.
*Barcelona at night rocks from Monday to Sunday. The nightlife scene is so broad that even locals find it difficult to decide where to go. But locals have suffered several invasions of nightclubs, now they flee tourists and shouting Erasmus student. Remember: Las Ramblas is not only place to go out for a drink or dance!!!
*Spain is well know for his siesta and paella. Although some locals have taken both as a habit, neither, are typical in the region. Try "FIDEUA"!!!
*Here La Sangria is becoming an exclusive drink for teenagers and tourists. If you want to have a cool drink before eating, try the "VERMOUTH". If you want to celebrate, ask for "CAVA" (a catalan sparkling wine of Denominatio of Origin status).
