Interaction with Guests

Sant Antoni area,is in Nova esquerra del Eixample,very lively, also has and interesting Sunday market , selling all types of books and collectables.
Sant Antoni combines its relaxed residential feel with a central location and proximity to the city's most popular spots. Also is on the junction between El Raval, and Poble Sec
Also Plaça Espanya is only 10 minutes walk .
If you like cinema, just 5 minutes away, there is a cinema showing films in foreign languages.
Separated from many of Barcelona’s well-known sights and attractions by large roads and parks, Eixample’s “New Left” keeps to itself, quietly mixing office buildings and residential side streets. After nightfall, most of the locals head home or to a gathering spot elsewhere in l’Eixample. Visitors who take the time to venture to the New Left often stumble upon unexpectedly delightful sights, like the colorful Parc de Joan Miró.
Ideally located, with easy access to supermarkets, restaurants, bars, nightclubs, banks and Montjuic etc.2 underground station are within a few minutes, also plenty of buses, Plaça Espanya is a 10 minute walk, buses from airport stop there.
Also very convenient to get to the fair grounds of Fira Barcelona.

The room was very good and clean.
The room is not exactly in the middle of the city center, but rather close to it and very close to the metro station.
The room is quiet but there's a window giving onto the inner stairs of the building, you have to know it when it's very hot and you need to open the window. ;)
Julia is really kind, very helpfull if needed, but she leaves you do your own life if you prefers to do so.
Thank you Julia !
It helped to make this trip a success.
Julia is friendly, petite lady, and she helped me to carry my heavy luggage up to the stairs.
She speaks English very well.
The room is very small.There is a window looking to a staircase (the same in whole building). It was hot there but Julia supply me with a ventilator. The building is clean, descent neighborhood.
She gave me maps of Barcelona and many useful advices about transportation, beaches,stores.
If I will have a chance to be in Barcelona again I would to rent the room again.
As I had to leave Barcelona earlier than my plan, I could not stay at her place. But she was kind in her message :).
The room is exactly as shown in the pictures. Comfy bed, room just enough for a single person, and a good shower in the apartment. Room is beside the main stairwell of the building, so there would be a little noise, but no big deal to me. Had three good nights of sleep. Julia is a helpful host, but would gladly leave it to you if you have your own plans. Overall, an excellent stay at a good location and price.
I had a great experience staying at Julia's flat. Unfortunately I didn't get to know Julia all that much, but our communications and brief early morning or late evening meetings were friendly and chatty. Julia is extremely helpful and very welcoming (She also waited up for my late evening check-in...Thank you for that). The flat is as described in the website and it is very clean and cozy. Its location is excellent: very close to Poble Sec Station, within walking distance to tourist sites and trendy areas (i.e. Carrer de Blai is a nice pedestrian street with lots of local pubs). The room (small but with a comfortable bed!) is next to the stairwell but the building is rather quiet so you won't be bothered by either early birds or night owls. I'd definitely recommed this place to everybody. It is really good value for money too!
Unfortunately I never got a chance to speak with Julia after my initial check in. Which is a pity because she sounded interesting having traveled quite a bit. The room is fairly compact but enough for my needs. The window opened on to the stairwell but poised no problem since the building was really quiet. Good location close to the metro and within walking distance of many sights.
Stayed with Julia, had a lovely time. The room is ideal in the centre of Barcelona, great for seeing the sights. :)
