Bienvenido a Barcelona!
This is an unique opportunity to spend the holydays in the heart of Barcelona, as my friends Daniel, a young doctor, and Alexandra, a human resources manager [like Toby from The Office – only sexier] are taking their five month old Chihuahua to see Paris. Their apartment is situated at Barcelona's very core, in Plaza Cataluña, at the beginning of Las Ramblas, in virtually the last residential building remaining, as the area is dedicated now only to five star hotels [Le Meridien, Royal, Montecarlo, Rivoli etc]. This is THE location to stay in if you are visiting Barcelona. Once here you will see that you are in the midst of the daily humdrum of Barcelona living, in the famous Plaza Catalunya which is both the city centre and Barcelona's number one attraction, making it withing walking distance to practicaly everything from transportation to bars, restaurants, shopping malls, museums and other tourist attractions.
Why you´ll really experience a lovely trip:
This two bedroom apartment is an amazing place, as it´s designed in a modern Catalan style offering a great view over Las Ramblas, a 1.2 kilometer-long tree-lined pedestrian mall between Barri Gòtic and El Raval, and the most popular street in Barcelona with both tourists and locals alike. The apartment has super huge bedrooms, twice the size of normal Barcelona bedrooms. It has two really cozy and comfortable king size beds for hosting up to 4 persons, a dining table with 4 chairs, and plenty of space to store your things. The rooms are styled to be comfortable, peaceful and romantic.
Getting to the apartment couldn’t be easier with the shuttle bus leaving the airport every 5 minutes to “Plaza Cataluña”- the final stop. The apartment is roughly 30 seconds walk from Plaza Cataluña down Las Ramblas towards the sea – and has a Carefour supermarket downstairs – you won't even have to stop and ask for directions.

Perfect location for a short visit. Everything is as it is described. Very good and prompt communication.
We spent 2 nights with my wife and found Andrei's apartment an ideal base for a 3 day city-trip in Barcelona. The flat was clean and well equipped. Even wanted to prolong our stay there but was no vacancy. Miky and Andrei are friendly, helpful and reliable.
Tip: Make sure that you take your phone with you to the elevator. We spent a funny few mins got stuck inside but help arrived very soon.
The perfect location! This apartment has everything you need for a visit to Barcelona. Andrei was fantastic, friendly and easy to communicate with. Even though our flight was over 2 hours late, Andrei was very flexible and made sure someone was there to greet us upon arrival. The apartment has all the basics you need. The bed was very comfy and the wifi access worked perfectly. There were several local maps, books and suggestions of things to do/places to see. It's proximity to the metro made it easy to get around the city and the supermarket next door was very convenient. If you are an extremely light sleeper, the late night fun on Las Ramblas might be a bit too noisy for some - but if you don't mind a bit of noise, it's certainly a great place to people watch at night. We found the restaurant around the corner called Bar Lobo a great spot to have dinner - great food & service! Thank you Andrei, we would definitely recommend this apartment!
It was an amazing stay at Andrei's apartment. The location is superb & the apartment itself was nice & comfy. Andrei is a perfect host, he even allowed us to stay after the regular check out time. We shall for sure be staying at his apartment on next visit.
This was already our second stay at Andrei's place and, as expected, it was very much pleasant and enjoyable again. Our arrival was very smooth, as well as the check-out, and Andrei helped to answer any questions we had.
Andrei is a great and suggested host. We would love to stay at his place again, when going to Barcelona next time.
We liked the appartoment Andrei , very affable and friendly hosts . The flat is in a good location , very convenient to get to all the attractions . Thanks for all !!!!!
The apartment is extremely convenient! Close to all transport links and within walking distance to the main tourist sights and shopping areas. Check in and out is easy and Andrei has been kind enough to leave some groceries for us.
Its a perfect place for 2-3 people.The location of the apartment is as good as anything can get.
Andrei was prompt and instructions were very well communicated.
We needed a car for some specific visits, and the nearest car rental we found was sixt (10 minute walk away from the port).
Avoid the restaurants ON the main street, they are avg quality and overpriced. The farmers market has some interesting food options which is a 2 minute walk on the right side if you walk towards the port. Also bar lobo a part of the famous tragaluz group is execellent(20 second walk from apartment, take right from le meridian).
Overall, an excellent host, apartment and experience. Will revisit soon.
Excellent location, close to transportation, shopping and Carefour (but can be noisy at night sometimes since very touristy). Good value for the money. TWO elevators in the building. No issue with the host. If you are in Barcelona to enjoy the city, this is a great place to just chill after a long day of fun!
This is a great apartment with great location.
This is the final rate, including any fees from the host and Airbnb.
