The Space

A double room in a serene apartment for rent in a historic building dating from the medieval period. On the doorstep you will find the Picasso museum, independent boutiques, art galleries, artists workshops, and this is the Borne area known for plenty of trendy bars and restaurants.
Every morning you will be served a delicious breakfast and when the weather permits this can be enjoyed on the private roofterrace, which you are also welcome to use throughout your stay, very well suited for a glass of wine after a day of sightseeing.
Several metro stations and bus stops are nearby, howewer most of the sights are within walking distance; the cathedral, Santa Maria del Mar, the beaches and Las Ramblas can be reached in less than 10 minutes.

  • Appartement super sympa, très propre avec une terrasse sur les toits, magnifique séjour, hôte charmant et en plus, il parle français. attention pas de grosses valises il faut monter les 3 étages avec un petit escalier bien raide ! mais c'est aussi le charme d'un immeuble ancien en plein centre de Barcelone.

  • We had some great days at Xaviers home in Barcelona. The apartment is very clean, Xavier a friendly and helpful host and we really enjoyed sitting on the nice terrace. We hope to come back! Thanks to Xavier.

  • Xavier - what can we say.... We fell in love with Barcelona due to our amazing host, apartment and city!
    Nothing like waking up to Xavier's breakfasts every morning he prepared for us.
    Exceptional host with a lot of insight from a "local's POV" for our first time visiting BCN.
    The best comment I will always remember from this trip was Xavier encouraging us to " get lost on the alleys of the city - could not have asked for better advise!
    Xavier - thank you for everything - we will be back!!!

  • This is a lovely apartment with a clean, simple room and a comfortable bed. The location is perfect, right in the middle of Born, my favourite part of Barcelona. As it's next door to the Picasso Museum it's very easy to give taxi directions in my incredibly broken Spanish. The rooftop terrace is beautiful too!

    Xavier's a great host too. Very kind and friendly. I'd certainly recommend this to anyone looking for a comfortable room in a great location. I'll be looking forward to staying there again when I'm next in Barcelona.

  • Le superbe appartement de Xavier est idéalement situé dans le quartier du Born à deux pas du Musée Picasso dans le cœur historique de la ville. Notre sympathique hôte était là pour nous accueillir dès notre arrivée et a été disponible tout au long de notre séjour.

  • Gorgeous room and apartment, looks like a boutique hotel! Great location, very near to the metro stop and just a few steps away from the Picasso museum. Room and shared bathroom was very clean. Xavier was a very lovely host and I only wish I had stayed longer.

  • We enjoyed staying with Xavier in his beautiful apartment in the old town of Barcelona very much. Xavier is an extremely pleasant and polite man and a very welcoming host. The facilities are excellent, location fantastic and the view from the roof garden is of the rustic tiled roof tops of the old town. Highly recommended
