Apartment - Private room · Carrer del Fonollar, Barcelona, Catalonia 08003, Spain

The Space

Hey guys! I rent out a beautiful double room in my place. The house is located in the center of Born, centric pedestrian and cool district with a lot of bars, restaurants and modern shops. 5 minutes walking from the cathedral, 5 from the Picasso museum, 5 from the church of Santa Maria del Mar , 10 from the ramblas and 10 from the beach. 50 meters from the door you have the nice Santa Caterina market, where you can buy fresh fruit and vegetables, tasty cheese, ham, meat, wine..... In the district you can rent bicycles to enjoy your holidays in a lovely way, or around the district you have 3 metro stations (max 5/8 min walking) Jaume I (yellow line), Liceu (green line), Arc de Trionf (red line). But being so centric, trust me you'll never need metro everything is under walking distance.
The house has 2 double rooms, leaving room, bathroom and kitchen;in the leaving room you have a little balcony with a special view to a pretty and characteristic square. 4th floor (no elevator), a lot of natural light, which is not so commune in Barcelona! the building is in an historical construction built during the XVIII century and you can really feel history and magic atmosphere.
Also you can use the amazing roof, which is shared with the others neighbors, you can have the best breakfast, lunch, dinner after dinner of your life! See the pictures! Sometimes I organize there nice BBQ with some friends, I'll be happy if you would join us :)
the house has been redecorate 2 years ago (parquet, wood beams ...) and is completely furnished
Towels, sheet, wifi and final cleaning are included in the price. When you arrive you can find a short doc made by me with a lot of tips about bars, restaurants, clubs and shops. So you can enjoy the city in the best and local way!

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Francesco was the best host we could have asked for! His apartment is in a fun, lively part of town with lots of shops, restaurants, bars, and teeny alleyways to explore. Francesco provided us with a map and a guidebook, as well as his own personal guide to his favorite spots all over the city--it was so helpful! I would recommend anyone to stay with him, especially those looking to see the fun, younger parts of town. If I ever return to Barcelona, a stay with him will be at the top of my list.

  • Francesco was a great host. His apartment is perfectly located in the Gothic Quarter, and he was super friendly, always available, and happy to chat and provide recommendations. Couldn't recommend staying here more.

  • I just spent a wonderful week at Francesco's place, he is a very nice and openmind person, and most of all he is very hospitable but not intrusive. His appartment is very clean and organised, with a lot of light in a central and pretty area. Thank you Francesco, you made me feel at home.

  • Staying in Francesco's place was a true pleasure. He is an extremly friendly, polite and educated person, who in addition to all his genuine qualities cares about nature, being example to all of us :)
    As for the appartment. it is, as one can expect, located right in the heart of the most vivid and vibrant area of the city.

    Would definitely recommend Francesco with all my heart!

  • Franceso is a fun and intelligent guy, polite and super down to earth, made our trip in Barcelona a very positive one! Before we even arrived he had given us tips on how to get around, things to look out for in the city and fantastic food recommendations! The apartment is convieniently located but not in the tacky tourist area. The room has everything you need. Francesco, no worries at all about the last night! We were tired but very glad you invited us to have drinks with your friends! We really felt the positive and laid back attitude of the locals! Ended the trip on a high :) thanks Francesco, hope to see you in our side of the world!

  • We had a great stay at Francescos stay. Right after we booked the room, Francesco sent us an email with directions to the place, as well as recommendations for eating out etc. When we arrived to the appartment we were welcomed by Francesco and had a nice chat. The appartment is like it is shown on AirBnb. The rooms might look a little bigger on the pictures- but it is really perfect for a weekend. Whenever we met at the airport, it was nice to chat with Francesco. We would absolutely stay there again and recommend his place! Oh- location is top and we had a wonderful breakfast at the roof terrace!

  • I had a great time at Francescos house. Very relaxing and cozy appartment. And very central in a beatiful litle plaza.

    Francesco was very friendly and generous (he actually gave me dinner and a beer!). And I got to meet some of his freinds too.

    So I had a very nice stay here.
