The room is bright and sunny and has a great private exterior balcony. There is a double bed (with all bed sheets and linen included), wardrobe, full-length mirror, chest of drawers, bedside table with lamp and a desk. Included in the price are towels and there is a hairdryer if you need.
The apartment is very bright and charming (typical Barcelona-style with ornate tiled flooring and high ceilings) in a centrally-located building which also has an elevator. There is also a nice living room with television, sofa and dining area. The apartment has a small bathroom with lavatory and a larger bathroom with a new shower.
The apartment is fully equipped with Wi-Fi Internet connection in the whole house, television in the living room, fully functioning kitchen with microwave, fridge-freezer, washing machine, toaster and all the kitchen utensils you will need to cook.
The location is perfect in a typical Barcelona neighborhood – in the heart of the city right next to Plaza España in the traditional neighborhood of Eixample. It is an ideal location for sight-seeing and for being in the center of the city. The area is relaxed and has a great selection of leisure activities, cheap restaurants, bars, theaters and tourist spots, for example, the Magic Fountain in Montjuic, La Fira (convention center), MNAC museum, Joan Miro park, Caixaforum, the Arenas shopping center, the Pueblo Español, etc. All these places are located within 5 minutes walking distance from the apartment. The Rambla is 15 minutes away by foot, and Sagrada Familia is 20 minutes away by metro from Sant Antoni (purple line).
Indeed the public transport available around the apartment is excellent. There are 4 metro stations within 5 minutes walk: Plaza España (green and red line), Rocafort (red line), Sant Antoni (purple line), Poble Sec (green line), as well as buses, night buses and trains to Montserrat.

Très bon séjour chez Hermann. Il nous a montré les bons plans sur Barcelone ! L'appartement était très propre et très bien placé. C'était ma première expérience sur Airbnb et je recommande vivement !
Nice room, really close to the fira. Nice quartier. Hermann was really kind about the arrival time. The place is little bit old but clean.
I've stayed here for 2 nights. The place was very clean, fast wifi and the flat is located in a very nice neighborhood. Hermann is a kind man who helps you out with maps and suggestions, he was also very flexible about the check out time.
Love the apartment - beautiful balcony with double doors inside the room, large shower, fully stocked kitchen. Host does not live in the apartment, so staying with other travelers gives it a bit of a mini upscale hostel feel. Very close to all sorts of fun stuff and transportation, the neighborhood Sant Antoni is really cool.
At first I was Anxious Because I was tired to traveling Paris. But thanks to his kindness was able to happy trip in Barcelona. If I were given the opportunity to travel to Barcelona again, I would choose again to his house :)
Great apartment in a great location. Close to the subway. Maybe a bit noisy in the neighborhood, but not a big deal. The apartment is quite old, so it might come off as a bit dirty, but as far as we saw, it was cleaned well. Hermann was an excelent host. He met us in the door when we arrived and he even let us stay a bit over check out time. He asked us during the stay if everything was ok. Me and my girlfriend had a great time in Barcelona, much thanks to Hermann.
Hermann is a very kind and helpful person. I absolutely enjoyed staying at his place and considering that both of us are big FCB fans, we are also good friends now :)
Plaza Espanya is a beautiful location to stay. The house is clean and tidy and has all the essentials you need for your vacation.

Hi! I have been living in Barcelona for more than 10 years. I love to travel and discover new cultures through food. I enjoy watching movies, jogging if I have time or relaxing on the beach, and I also enjoy cooking.
