The laying of the fist stone of what woud become the martime district of Barcelona took place in febraury, 3, 1753. Barcelona, and La Barceloneta offfers to its visitors many places to discover, with its social and cultural history.
Close to the old port, I offer this charming ground floor with double window, next to the market and the role of Barceloneta, historical and authentic Barcelona. It has a living room with kitchen, bedroom and bathroom, is fully equipped (TV, Internet, air-conditioning, washer/dryer machine, fridge, hairdryer, iron) and ready to live. At 2 minutes from the metro station "Barceloneta" (Line 4), well connected by bus which takes you to the 4 corners of Barcelona. It is located in the heart of the friendly atmosphere and vibrant neighborhood, or is the best known restaurants seafood and other specialties, as well as tapas bar. There are shops of all kinds. The Barceloneta beach is 200 meters and you reach the city center in 5 minutes along the quay of the old port.
Some places to eat typically in its streets: "Cervecería El Vaso de Oro", "PasaTapas", "Jaica","La bombeta", "cal chusco", "Villloro", "Can Ramonet", "la Cova Fumada", "Maians", El refugi del port", "L´almirall", "La mar salada", "Salamanca", "Hispano", "Rías de Vigo", "Can Costa" , "Can Maño" and the famous for its rumba and flamenco music "Bar Leo" in Sant Carles street, who offers others bars with good ambiance at night, or the bars for apperitifs and tapas specially at the midday situaded on the bars situaded on the street "Almirall Cervera". And we can´t forget the the many wineries "Bodegas" with their barrels where you can buy bulk wine still
This district special for his particular way of life, where already you can see the neighbours seating in his chair on the front door of their home , or the laundry drying on the sidewalks, or view the old fishermen playing card on the edge of the maritime promenade and making this district safe and secure because of the life of the neighbours outside.
That makes that I live in this district, and I´m present for anything you need .
if you do not bring your computer, you can rent a miniPC, depending on length of stay, to surf the Internet or watching your e-mails, depending on availability.
It´s ideally situated from the old city center, 5 minutes walking and well served in public transport:
Underground: Line 4 stop "La Barceloneta"
Bus: (phone number hidden)
Railway Station: Estación de Francia
Thank you ver much and see you soon,
Très bon séjour dans cet appartement, Jorge est un hôte prévenant et très sympathique ayant su nous conseiller de bonnes adresses dans le quartier.
L'appartement est tout à fait fonctionnel, propre et bien agencé. Il se situe dans un quartier super, très vivant. Il est à 5 min du métro et du marché (très pratique).
C'est une bonne adresse, n'hésitez pas à contacter Jorge pour votre séjour à Barcelone.
POSITIVE: the location is just great: near the beach, metro and bus stations, restaurants and markets. The bathroom has a big comfortable shower and a practical washing/drying machine. Towels were new and clean. There's a dvd player with usb port. There is the ADSL wifi connection working well and a lot of city maps. Jorge was perfectly on time at check in and left us free all the time. We had all his contacts for any need. He also answered quickly in the first contact phase, via mail.
AVERAGE: medium quality furniture (IKEA), small but functional (website hidden) is only in Spanish. Someone a bit fat wouldn't pass in the space between the bed and the wall, coz I could barely move myself and I'm not that big!
NEGATIVE: poor ventilation and smell of dump, as there are only 2 small windows. Even worse these windows are directly on the street so people walking on the pavement are 1m away from the bed and during the night is terribly noisy.
In the end not that bad but the value for money is not really good.
Jorge is a lovely host! Very helpful and friendly.
Great little apartment , well equipped with everything you could need. Location is perfect with easy access to beach, bars and shops. My partner and I stayed 4 nights and definately would stay there again. The host Jorge was very freindly and helpful.
Thanks again :-)
La experiencia en la casa de Jorge fue excelente, el trato de Jorge fue genial, tanto como la de su madre. El fue muy simpatico, y muy atento en todo (website hidden) ubicacion del piso es increible, a metros de la playa y del centro historico. Muy limpio, impecable y de buen gusto.
Très bon séjour dans l'appartement de Jorge. L'appartement est vraiment très bien équipé, il n'y a plus qu'à poser vos valises. Il est très bien situé, on peut faire pas mal de choses à pieds si on est motivés ou alors en métro. Dommage qu'on n'ai pas rencontré Jorge qui a l'air super gentil. Vraiment je vous conseille son appartement.
Jorge was great at communicating and providing directions.... It is very central and a nice experience living in the hustle and bustle of Barceloneta, an old fisher village within Barcelona. The apartment is nicely renovated and has all utilities perfectly arranged. I guess this place is for people who spend the most of the time on the town. You can perfectly cook as well but it is on ground level and all windows to street have single glass, which puts you in direct hearing of all street life. If you can deal with the noise I recommend the place, very convenient!
Appartement sympathique dans un quartier vivant. L'appartement est bien amménagé et a été refait récemment. Il est également très propre. Le marché couvert à deux pas est très sympa et la station de métro la plus proche à quelques minutes tout comme la plage. Seul inconvénient l'absence de double vitrage.
Jorge est très sympathique et vous donnera de bons conseils.
