******More about the local area, Plaza de España.
One of the city's biggest squares, it is the junction of several major thoroughfares: Gran Via de les Corts Catalanes, Avinguda del Paral·lel, Carrer de la Creu Coberta and Carrer de Tarragona, and leads to the Palau Nacional through Avinguda de la Reina Maria Cristina, which houses one of Catalonia's finest museums, the Museu Nacional d'Art de Catalunya (MNAC). It was designed by Josep Amargós. The fountain at the centre of the square was designed by Josep Maria Jujol, a collaborator of Antoni Gaudí, while Miquel Blay designed the statues. The buildings were designed by Nicolau Maria Rubió i Tudurí.
Venetian Towers - they are 47 m (154 ft) tall and lead the way to the MNAC via Avinguda de la Reina Maria Cristina, an avenue commonly used to host trade fairs.
Fira de Barcelona
Parc de Joan Miró - previously known as Parc de l'Escorxador (Abbatoir Park), it is nowadays named after the Catalan painter Joan Miró, whose 22-metre-tall statue Dona i Ocell (Woman and Bird) can be seen in one of its corners.
Arenas de Barcelona, a bullring - It was built in 1900 in the Moorish Revival style and has been converted into a shopping center.

Bueno la Verdad estoy muy triste de ver como gente puede poner este tipo de cuartos en renta, creo que las fotos fueron tomadas hace muchos años y el cuarto esta deteriorándose.
Cuando llegamos pues lo primero fue que nos recibió la mama de la dueña del apartamento el problema es que no habla ni un poco de español ni ingles así que muy difícil para comunicarnos solo nos pidió el dinero por las llaves y ya es todo, percibimos que olía mucho a comida asiática, el cuarto si tenía tres camas pero la verdad ni ganas daban de dormir ahí, así que el primer día nos fuimos todo el día y cuando regresamos en la noche nos encontramos con la noticia que no había agua caliente en la ducha, yo con mi niño de 4 años pues imposible de bañarlo con agua caliente total que agua caliente nunca tuvimos. Yo le comente a la dueña por que haber pagado 170 € para no tener ni agua caliente la verdad no esta muy bien, después nosotros traíamos alguna comida para ponerlo en el refrigerador la verdad no nos dio ni ganas ponerlo todo en el refrigerador estaba sucio ni ganas daban de agarrar el refrigerador, la cocina súper fea mal entretenida muy sucia, el balcón parece mas basurero que otra cosa por que no puedes ni salir de tantas cosas que hay afuera.
Total que nuestra estancia fue muy desagradable, y no creo que soy la única por que estando ahí vimos otros que rentaban parece ser el cuarto de a lado y ellos ya tenían también un día antes que nosotros si agua caliente así que compartimos algunas palabras y ellos también coincidían con nuestra opinión que las fotos que ponen no tiene nada que ver con la realidad.
Yo no les recomiendo este lugar, lo único positivo que tiene es que esta muy bien deservido con transporte público y buses.
Mi familia y yo ya nos hemos ido a Canadá y es por eso que c esta aplicacion pero pues este cuarto la verdad no se los recomiendo al menos que la dueña haga una limpieza total....
Espero que este comentario les ayude para no sean desilusionados como nosotros.
I'm surprised and upset for reading this review, seems jonathan not happy all the time with us, the major reason is no hot water and caused all his complain, we tried our best to supplied a kettle with a waterbasin for basic cleaning work, it's summer time anyway. The last people used hot water were another 3 guests, but they didn't admit any damage, we were told the repairation has to make on Monday, the workers work 5 days per week. Jonathan mentioned the payment several times, I received only 143 Eur in final, Airbnb took 15-16%. It's an upper sunny flat which costs 220000 Eur in a great location, for 2 days weekend for 4 persons is reasonable price. This guest also complained how bad the condition we had, this is just too picky and not acceptable, there's human cleaning work plus clean bedding for welcome them, include our fridge, a service for human being, not luxury but reasonable enough. Many flats without a basement in Barcelona, not like in Germany or Switzerland( we have a home in Zurich too), some home stuff left in balcony, so what? It's not a hotel to show you a perfection, it's just a home. I'd been travelling a lot in luxury 4, 5 stars hotels also humble mountain inns, I was always polite to everyone and received the same, you can't blaim the hosts for unexpected cases all the time, please appreciate the positive parts as well. After read jonathan's long bla bla complain, I feel helpless, I think this kind of personality just difficult to deal with, but I'm still appreciate for nice communication before your arrival.
location is very good located and the mother of jen is very friendly.- The room is not really suitable for 5 persons, especially for one person there was only a sofa, which was too short - jen was not there and told me later via email that there would have been a possibility to put in another bed, which her mother obviously did not know.
I didn't actually get to stay at the apartment. After accepting my booking request Jen actually told me I was to stay at a different place because this one was full.
I didn't really have a choice in the matter.
As a disclaimer I booked this place to stay in Barcelona during the Mobile World Congress, when it is almost impossible to find lodging at the last minute, so I was happy to simply have a place to stay.
When I got there, nobody was present to give me the keys even though we had confirmed it the night before.
Beyond that Jen herself was really nice when I got to meet her and always responsive over the phone when these mishaps happened.
She's a nice host, but I can't say for this actual place, since I didn't get to stay there.
