About this listing
Right in the city center. All distances are walkable (beach, museums,sites, shops, bars and restaurants). Get the true feeling of the old city from the our balcony. The nicest of locations in a very big apartment and the most comfortable room.
Double room, high ceiling and huge windows immersed in the old city center. A double bed, and long workshop desk in case you need to do some work. 2 wardrobes, night table with a lamp. Cozy, spacious and kind of cinematographic.
In a reformed and modern apartment with access to a very well equipped kitchen with everything you could think off or need, washing machine indeed. Two bathrooms (one small and other big) and a little Vietnamese table to enjoin breakfast or any other meal.
At the heart of El Born area, 1 minute walk from Santa María del Mar church, 1 minute walk from famous Picasso Museum, 2 minutes to The Cathedral, Barrio Gótico and the Ciudadela Park and surrounded by many Metro stations, bus stops and public bicycle spots. Most of the of Barcelona´s best bars and restaurants are just downstairs indeed.
10 minutes walk or less to the beach!!
Other Things to Note
Located in a 19th century building in very good condition as most of the incredible buildings and architecture that characterizes our beloved neighborhood.
Most importan rule is reading this, please.
Sharing the apartment with me and other fellow Airbnb guests, is very different of renting a hotel. Is a new thing we are all trying to adapt our self to this new set of circumstances. You knew in advance were you'd be going, otherwise you wouldn't be in one of my rooms. If something, sharing a room here is more like a roommate than hotel or family guests. Is quite hard for me, a single guy with huge apartment, to keep everything perfect with hotel standard all the time. Im not a Hotel, Motel a Hostal, im alone here and I have a life, other than my flat and Airbnb. So, I try to do maintenance all the time. I ask for a cleaning fee because that is a different job, very fiscal and hard, believe or not, and sometimes I need to ask people to help me with that money. It only covers the cleaning of your room after you left, it doesn't cover the maintenance of the place, the cleaning of the kitchen or the bathroom after you or your friends use it. As temporal roommate you could help by cleaning the kitchen and the bathroom after you used, and even give little care for the whole space while you are here. Don't hold your opinions about my place or your room or whatever circumstances you keep till the moment to review. I take those review very personally, after all I allowed you to be in my home, my space, my life. And because I try my best to keep everything in order and clean. Let me know what is it and I fix or repair it or whatever you tell me, help me out doing whatever you can for the place and, even more important, by telling me as sooner the better what you are not happy with. Is better that tha long faces and terrible reviews form both ends.
Check out must be coordinated at least the night before you departure.
Remember you can always reach me at my phone or Whats App, Telegram, Viber with the same phone number.
If you wish to contact me by email, I always prefer you use airbnb message board. It makes everything easier.
Towels and sheets are provided.
Very important too:
I live in an actual second floor but is called Primera that means first. Actual first floor is called in Spain Primera. So careful with this. Please don't knock on my neighbours doors if you are not sure is my door. My door number is 1-2, means first floor(but is a second) second door. It is an inter phone downstairs that you better ring before you come into the building. Remember 1-2.
Turn off the lights, heater, fan, when you leave the room. Save the planet.
Set the shower pressure no too hard, so you dont water the floor thus clean it up.
The room is to be left in the same condition as it was when initially checked in.
You will be responsible to maintain the standard of cleanliness and tidiness in the Room, Kitchen and the Bathroom.
Being respectful and friendly to others around you both in the apartment and neighbors.
You have full access to common spaces as kitchen, washing machine room and living room. As you do in your house clean them after use.
Alejandro hat uns sehr freundlich bei sich aufgenommen und auch während des Aufenthalts war er immer gut zu erreichen, wenn wir Fragen hatten. Die Unterkunft war genau so wie sie beschrieben war und auch auf den Bildern sichtbar ist. Auch die Nachbarschaft war sehr angenehm, auch wenn sie "typisch spanisch" etwas lauter am späten Abend war. Alles in Allem war es eine gute Erfahrung. Ein weiterer riesiger Pluspunkt des Zimmers ist sein Standort. Mittendrin in der Altstadt und im Touristengetümmel.
Alejandro did a very good job having everything prepared for our arrival. We came before the check in time, but were able to drop off our bags while he cleaned the place from the last guest. He was very knowledgable about events in the area. The place is located in a great neighborhood with lots of great food and in walking distance to most places. Overall, I would highly recommend this place.
Le point fort de cet appartement tout proche de la basilique Santa Maria del Mar est sa situation près des autres principaux sites historiques tout en pouvant se rendre à la plage à pied. Le mobilier de la chambre est basique et l'ambiance de l'appartement est un peu dans l'esprit du film "L'auberge espagnole" et du "Guide du routard" avec la possibilité de se faire à manger et d'avoir accès au réfrigérateur. La nuit la rue peut être bruyante mais c'est le charme d'être au centre ville.
Decisamente Disponibile e Ospitale Alejandro è l'hostes ideale.
la camera è accogliente ed è posta in un quartiere veramente centrale e caratteristico
Gospodarz był miły, polecał ciekawe miejsca w okolicy, rozmawiał o muzyce, kulturze. Idealna osoba do wynajmu. Mimo tego, że byliśmy kilka godzin wcześniej przed zameldowaniem, pokój już był dla nas gotowy.
