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, 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 me and my boyfriend 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!
Other Things to Note
There are currently two other rooms also available:
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.
Maribrl and her boyfriend Jorge have been my favorite hosts so far in all my air bnb journeys. They both go the extra mile to make you feel welcome in the apartment and city. Both of them were kind enough to take me to a neighborhood brunch spot which was one of the highlights during my stay in Barcelona. Even post-stay, they continued to be flexible, understanding, and accessible. As for the apartment itself, Maribel and Jorge go above and beyond to ensure that every inch of the enitre apartment is in pristine and clean, making it a positive experience for visitors. I felt very at home. Location wise, it was perfect- 5 minutes walk to city center but in a quiet and safe area which was important to me. I would 100% recommend And would stay here again! Thank you Maribel and Jorge!
Maribel has a pleasant apartment in a convenient area of Barcelona. She takes pride in keeping everything clean and the bedroom, although small, had everything one person requires. It does, however, get warm even with the window open and fan on. It is an easy walk into the heart of the city and as most of my time was spent out of the apartment I did not see a great deal of Maribel or George. I enjoyed my stay and would have liked to have seen them before leaving at 11 am to have thanked them personally.
Muy amable y buena anfitriona, y la habitación tal como se muestra en las fotografías, no muy grande pero más que suficiente. Y el baño siempre limpio. Lo mejor es la zona, a un paso del metro. Sin duda un piso muy aconsejable.
Maribel has been extremely kind and helpful on my stay there. She is very knowledgeable and I could ask her everything regarding where to eat, bus to airport and so forth. The location is amazing. You don't have to take the metro if you love to walk like me cos it's is right in the city center. I will definitely come back again.
