The Space

Welcome to Barcelona!

PRICE DEPENDING ON THE NUMBER OF NIGHTS, NUMBER OF GUESTS AND SEASON

RIGHT IN FRONT OF THE BEACH IN THE VILA OLIMPICA AREA! A CHARMING AIR OF BARCELONA! VERY CLEAN AND QUIET! VERY CLOSE TO THE BEACH, THE OLYMPIC PORT AND THE HISTORICAL CENTER

*OUR HAPPY GUESTS are mature and young couples, families with older and young children, groups of friends and solo travelers.

*WE OFFER OUR GUESTS this great apartment right in front of the beach area. A charming air of Barcelona! Very clean and quiet. Its location in Barcelona is ideal because it's very close to the "Playa Nova Icaria", the Port Olimpic and there are only a few minutes to the historical center.

*HAPPY NEIGHBOURHOOD

The 1992 Olympics brought about a big change in this area, before the seafront was made up of warehouses and docks, but now it has been transformed into one of Barcelona's most modern and architecturally ambitious districts.

The area has two beaches, Icaria and Bogatell, both of which are increasingly popular and house quite a few beachside bars and restaurants. The beaches are all well equipped with toilets, showers, first aid and changing rooms for the disabled. These beaches are quite popular for windsurfers and there is a sailing school if you want to prove your dexterity on the sea. If you want so sunbathe in peace then I recommend you walk up the beach away from the port, where there are far less people, although you may find yourself stumbling across a few nudists!

By night the area comes alive and people swarm to the huge strip of restaurants and well-known clubs such as Shoko and Baja Beach that look out onto the port, all under the watchful eye of a big golden fish designed by Frank Gehry for the 92 Olympics.

Bogatell is less modernized than the nearby Villa Olympica and still has remnants of old Barcelona, small Catalan cafés and narrow roads. If you want to escape from the crowds then this a good place to head and cool down after a long day at the beach.

Avenida Icaria which runs through Bogatell to the Olympic village is also where you will find the Vila complex which consists of restaurants, shopping, a supermarket and a 15 screen cinema that shows all the newest releases in their original language - great if you fancy watching a film in English.

The area is for the most part quite modern and enjoy the relative quiet of an out of town location, but also have the beach and the Olympic village for entertainment.

Both Bogatell and Ciutadella Villa Olympica have metro stops on the yellow line that will take you into the centre of Barcelona in 10-15 minutes. You could also walk to Las Ramblas in about half an hour if you feel energetic. Otherwise taxis are cheap and easy to get around the Olympic Village.

Other sights of interest are the Parc Ciutadella which is surprisingly tranquil most of the time and a lovely place for a picnic. In the park you will also find the Barcelona Zoo which is always a favorite with children and adults alike (be sure to catch the dolphin show).

Very close to playground. Very close to Parc de la Ciutadella. Very close to the Zoo. Very close to the beach. Very close to the Olympic Port. Restaurante Fresc Co (120 m). Restaurante Rincón del Jamón (140 m). Restaurante El Racó del Asador (140 m). Restaurante Pizzeria Il Corsaro Nero (140 m). Restaurante Anfiteatro (160 m). Café & Café Port Olímpic (181 m). Olimpic Cocktail Port Olímpic (181 m). Restaurant Miralport (185 m).

From Barcelona airport to Barcelona city you can take a normal taxi (+/- 30-35 euros). Max. cap. 4 people. Also, from Barcelona airport you can take the “Aerobus” until “Plaça Catalunya” and then the metro from “Catalunya” (red line) to “Ciutadella-Vila Olímpica” (yellow line). Then, you can walk to the apartment. Please take note that you have to change from the red to the yellow line at “Urquinaona”.

  • My group of friends stayed here for the Primavera Sound music festival in May. We enjoyed the apartment, it is much bigger then the pictures make it seem. It's in a quiet, safe block in a residential neighbourhood very close the the beach. It's about 45 minute walk to parc del forum for the festival, and half an hour walk into the centre of town. Barceloneta is close, which has good food and shops, and the local port offers great food (Salamancas) and snacks.

    The rooms are comfortable with plenty of storage and a well equipped kitchen. It is very clean and well furnished. It is quiet at night, with nice light during the day and temperature control through air conditioning.

    Our few complaints are small; the pillows on the beds were not very comfortable, one bed room had no door, just a flimsy curtain, and the bathroom had a glass door with no lock. This would ok for a family, but less so for friends on holiday.

    All in all a very good stay, and recommended. Very good communication and service on air b&b too.

  • Me and my friends very enjoyed our stay in the apartment. It was very clean, quiet and very well located - only few minutes walk from the beach and parties/restaurants area in Port Olimpic. Sara (who welcomed us and showed the apartment) was very nice. Would recommend staying here.
