About this listing
You can rest in a cozy and very comfortable private room. The room has heater, blankets, fresh linens and towels, night stand, dresser drawer, and clothes hangers.
The apartment is modern and practical, with air conditioning, high speed internet with Wi-Fi included, High Definition TV with cable, an equipped kitchen with a free assortment of teas/coffee/cocoa at your disposal so you can enjoy a coffee break or simple breakfast, 2 full bathrooms with a hair dryer, a washing machine available for longer-term stays (2 weeks plus), and a terrace to enjoy the spectacular weather of Barcelona throughout the year.
The apartment has several rooms which are separated from each other giving you total privacy in each space and it is only my boyfriend and I living there. You will have full access to the living room, terrace, kitchen, and bathrooms which are the common areas. I don’t have pets and I don’t smoke. There is no smoking allowed indoors, but guests can use the terrace if they need to.
My place is in the center of Barcelona and with easy access to all kinds of public transportation. The metro stop Urgell is right on the corner and with another line metro stop, Sant Antoni, 2 blocks down. From here you can walk to pretty much anywhere and there are a lot of things to do night and day around here.
You would find, shops, supermarkets, cafes, wine bars, galleries, cinemas, theaters, many restaurants for all tastes and pockets, and lots of outside terraces to enjoy Barcelona´s lifestyle right at your doorstep. The apartment is on the 7th floor (Ático) and the building has 2 elevators.
I can definitely give you tips about Barcelona and can try to make time to show you around if I have some free time. I love to travel and meeting people from all around the world. I’m outgoing, very friendly, and a great host! Welcome!

Maribel is a kindly person. The room and the apartment is very clean and i'm grateful for all the information she gave me.
Experiencia muy grata y agradable; repetiría sin ninguna duda. La habitación es tal y como se describe, cumple lo necesario para una visita a Barcelona disponiendo de todo lo necesario y en pleno centro de la ciudad (destacar también la tranquilidad y la limpieza). Los anfitriones se prestan a ayudarte para cualquier cosa que necesites; serviciales, detallistas, y amables. En resumen, no creo que se pueda pedir más.
Maribel was very nice to offer the help of getting to her apartment. The whole 3 days stay was smooth. The location is good, very close to the metro station, less than 3 mins walk. The room is just like what you see in the picture. I really like the balcony of the apartment, you can enjoy your private time (better if you are a smoker). Thank you, Maribel!
Maribel is a lovely, very flexibele host. She made me feel welcome even after arriving very very late after a flight delay.
The appartment is clean & comfortable & would be even better with a well functioning airco system;)) cause sleeping was a little hard with a heat wave happening!
But a mechanic will solve that. problem soon she promised!
La habitación es sencilla pero tiene todo lo necesario. Maribel muy agradable, aunque pasé la mayor parte del tiempo fuera de la casa. Lo mejor la situación de la casa, a unos diez o quince minutos andando de Plaza Cataluña.
The room and bathroom were very clean. The host was very nice and helpful. She gave detailed directions so I arriced at the apt without any difficulty.
I had a great stay at Maribel's place. Her flat is exactly as described and exactly as per the photos - clean and welcoming with everything from fresh towels, a hairdryer and wifi available. It's easy to find and about a 20-25 minute walk to anywhere you might want to go - I only really took the metro to the beach - and that's just to go a little further north. The metro stop Urgell is also just at the end of the road.
Maribel was very quick to respond before I came, she very kindly waited up for me when my flight was delayed and was very welcoming. She's very well organised for Airbnb guests with tea cupboards, maps and local information. There are a few others also staying there - sadly I had a very packed schedule and only briefly met them. She was also happy to let me leave my luggage the day I checked out and come back for it later, which was really handy.
The room I stayed in was perhaps the smallest available, but the perfect size for me - the bed was bigger than I expected and and very comfortable. It's quite warm - but you're in Spain, it's always warm.
It's also very quiet considering the central location. You can't hear any traffic or street noise so I slept soundly. I found the area absolutely fine. supermarket on the corner, restaurants nearby, but a little nondescript compared to other areas. It was also very quiet walking home in the evenings, but I felt relatively safe as a solo female.
I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Maribel's place if you're looking for an affordable spot for a good night's sleep, a cup of tea on the terrace and a relaxing spot to rest between sightseeing, amongst other friendly travellers.
