I love to offer my guests all the information they need to make their days in the city and know what interests them.
I wait at the front door upon arrival by taxi from the airport. And we sat for a while to explain, on the plan of the city, where we are, how to move, where the shops of the area we are. And during your stay I am at your disposal for any need that comes their way.
I was born in Barcelona, I am an architect, a science journalist and musician active, and I think I am able to help them on their visit.
Other guests who have lived at home in the last three years have made a very positive feedback and I appreciate that offer future guests to read.
The quality of people, locals as always, a cult neighborhood. Some educated neighbors, elderly people living in the building for many years, makes polite and respectful. An architectural and urbanistic environment that reflects the best of this city. Education, security, culture and human quality are the hallmarks of our neighbors. All kinds of shops, restaurants and supermarkets.
Impressive variety of proximity and public transportation there just 50 meters from the front door. Metro lines L3 and L5 are next; with them you can interact with the entire Metro network.

Carlos made us feel welcome from the moment of the initial reservation request! He responded immediately, was easy to interact with, and accommodated our travel plans from the beginning. The neighborhood is fantastic - many shops, restaurants, and sites are close.
Carlos was a great host; he gave us a good briefing on Barcelona and useful information about the apartment, local shopping and other practical matters. We locked one of our bags in the apartment as we were leaving for the airport at 7 am. We called Carlos and he arrived on his scooter in 10 minutes to open the door for us!
The apartment was as described, a nice friendly atmosphere. It was a quiet apartment despite being located close to many restaurants and the metro, only 5-7 minutes into the centre. The apartment was well equipped, lots of spare bedding and towels. There are lots of good cafes for breakfast nearby, a great ham and cheese shop, a couple of basic supermarkets and an English bookshop 100 yards away. We really enjoyed our stay and can recommend Carlos’s apartment.
Our family (couple with 9 month old) stayed at Carlos apartment for a week.
Carlos was a great host, very helpful and showed great knowledge of city. We had good communication before arrival, met us and gave very good review of the place and neighborhood. Also took care of bed and chair for our child and our taxi to the airport.
The apartment is quite big, very sunny. All functions are in place, including electrical devices, good collection of music and library (it was in Spanish, so not sure how good it's :) ).
Place of building is superb. One minute walk from 2 metro station, couple of minutes walk from number of central streets, but still of the beaten track. There are coffeeshops and supermarkets around.
Be aware that this is historic building, so elevator is very small and there stairs at the entrance.
Couple of cons:
1) doors in the apartment are quite old and handles broken. Wasn't a big problem, but still a little bit of inconvenience.
2) WiFi is relatively week and doesn't cover well part of the apartment
Overall I would highly recommend this apartment and Carlos as owner.
Thank you Carlos for being such a great host!
Carlos is definitely one of the best hosts I have met on Airbnb. Communication was easy and prompt, he welcomed us to the flat, and was really helpful in providing all the information we needed to make us feel like we were at home. He also kindly arranged for a taxi to pick us up at the flat for the airport.
The flat is big and spacious and the winter terrace has an incredible amount of sunlight in the mornings. It was a treat.
The neighbourhood is really great. Incredibly close to Diagonal metro stop and has shops, restaurants, cafes and super markets all close by. It's also a really pleasant neighbourhood to just walk around. We had a great stay and would definitely recommend Carlos' place.
My wife and I are seasoned and sophisticated travelers. Carlos and his apartment were perfect for us. We liked it so much we stayed there twice!
The apartment is his home so it is very clean and charming and has everything you need. It is quiet, spacious, has an elevator and is ideally located 1 block from the Metro, 1 block from The Ramblas and walking distance to everything. And, what makes it even more special is Carlos. Musician, architect and man about town. He took extra time to suggest what to see and where to eat. And, he directed us to two small music clubs. The first to watch an authentic Flamenco performance, and the other to hear some awesome blues. Oh and did I mention the bottle of wine and other treats awaiting us on our arrival. You will love staying at this apartment.
We stayed at Carlos' appartment for one month with our 11 months old baby daughter. We had a very warm welcome, Carlos was very helpfull. He even arranged a bycicle for me to go to work, a piano for my husband and a baby bed and chair. The apartment is spacious and light and the location is ideal, very close to almost everything. We would certainly recommend staying here.
First trip to beautiful Barcelona (for sure not the last) and first Airbnb experience. Carlos is a very interesting man, he is of the city, and took time to share his knowledge of BCN. He also shared with us a fiery, passionate Flamenco show in a space only a local would know. His flat is spacious, in the very best location, very clean and is much like Carlos himself, layered and interesting. Will return to BCN, will stay at Carlos' flat and highly recommend it if you are coming to BCN.
