The Space

Hello and Welcome :)

Calendar is up to date, please use the book now button to calculate price

After hundreds of Airbnb guests have passed through our places, more than 500 nearly all POSITIVE REVIEWS we would like to imagine we are beginning to be experienced (website hidden) please ASK questions and find out all of our little advantages over other listings like for example FREE TOURS of our neighbourhood the beautiful Gothic quarter, easy transport to and from the airport, authentic apartments and last but not least GREAT VALUE accommodation in the SMACK BANG CENTRE of BARCELONA!!!!!

What we offer:

A 60 min WALKING TOUR in the Gothic quarter around the apartment for inside tips on Catalan traditions, Spanish culture, great restaurants, nice cafe's, funky bars, historical sites, Gaudi buildings and great things to see and do in Barcelona.

WiFi connection.

There is also clean towels, sheets and a fan (Barcelona is hot during
the summer!)

(toilet paper, soap, towels, tea, coffee and cereal in the kitchen)

There is a kitchen available for guest use if you don't want to eat out with access to fridge etc.

We have two cleaners, Mariom and Cathy who also host for us when we travel. They are great and know Barcelona very well, they come to clean every day for a few hours in the morning.

About the room:

The room is small - we would describe best as a room for two friends who need safe, quiet and good value place to stay in the centre of the Barcelona. It is a quiet room with easy access to the bathroom and kitchen. It has a window and receives natural light during the day. There are two single beds just like on the photo which stretch out wall to wall so if you are tall keep this in mind. There is free wireless internet in the apartment that requires a code that you can find in the apartment.

There are also two bathrooms, one with a shower and toilet and the other with just a toilet and wash basin. This authentic apartment is full of Catalan memories with old Spanish tiles in the kitchen and bathroom, wooden beams all along the apartment and typical Spanish shutters. It is a huge apartment (185m squared) with two bathrooms, one shower, kitchen, living room, washing machine, internet, two large rooms and two small rooms.

NOTE: We have moved apartment so we do not live in this apartment but we live a few minutes away and visit the house twice a day, we also try to organize more than 2 tours per week...

About the price:

There is a 15 euro charge per extra guest. There is no charge for children under 3 :)

We have a late check in fee, as we cannot come to give keys late at night so we arrange for Mariom to be there to make sure you will be looked after when you arrive!

About the location:

The apartment is located in the centre of Barcelona in the 1st District “ La Ciutat Vella”, it is in the heart of the Gothic quarter next to "Plaza Reial" with lanterns by Gaudi and a step away from The Famous pedestrian boulevard " The Ramblas" (The main street in Barcelona) with Gaudi's building "Palau Guell" 1 Min away. We are situated close to most of the well-known tourist attractions. The apartment is on "Escudellers street" famous for having its old restaurants and Catalan Tapas bars. There is also ‘’Plaza St. George Orwell’ (locally known as “Plaza Tripi"), all around the corner. The nearby streets contain many of the city's most emblematic buildings.

The narrow, winding streets create quite a labyrinth meaning it can take a while to get one's bearings! I recommend that you should always look up and around in case of missing some of the nicest sites. The Gothic quarter has plenty of peaceful squares (plazas) where you can relax and enjoy your surroundings. If we are around during your stay I will gladly take you on a tour of the neighbourhood so you can find your feet here!

Transport is easily accessible in this part of town (metro, taxi, bus). However this quarter is relatively small and most of the city’s attractions are a walk away distance. Our housekeeper also offers transport if you need it.

Getting to the apartment couldn’t be easier with the shuttle bus leaving the airport regularly to “Plaza Cataluña”. The apartment is roughly 12 minutes walk from Plaza Cataluña down the Ramblas. Or alternatively one stop on the metro to “Liceu” L3 (green line) leaving you a minute away. There is also a taxi stand 30 meters down the street plus 24h underground parking.

The other great thing is we can put you in touch with our friends who do great value transport to and from the airport whatever time you need – their prices range from 25 – 35 euro depending on the time of day/night and that price includes up to 4 people + 4 bags. REALLY GOOD VALUE!

  • Spent 4 days in the apartment which is in a great location right off La Rambla - really enjoyed my visit. The apartment is lovely, Flow and Anu are super friendly and great hosts and were really flexible with checkout, allowing me to enjoy my last day and leave bags at the apartment before I left. Highly recommended! Thanks!

  • Flo and Anu's place was very easy to find as it is extremely close to La Rambla. You will not be disappointed with the location! We were welcomed by an energetic and talkative Flo, who helped us get settled with whatever we needed and made sure we were comfortable before getting on with his day. The stay would have been very enjoyable had we not seen Anu or Flo, but they were always dropping by the house and talking with us and the other guests and made it a truly wonderful experience whenever we decided to spend some time inside. Will surely return for my next visit to Barcelona!
