This is a small room with a good bed that is a small double, it can sleep a couple if needs be.

The Space

This is a 3 bed apt ( I live here, other room is a large double that is also for rent on AirBnB) This is a small simple room for one (maybe two persons). The apt has air conditioning, Wi fi internet, new 42 inch plasma TV, washing machine, dishwasher and access via lift. The bathroom is shared.

Excellent area to live as it is central but without problems of the usual touristy areas, there lots of shops, restaurants, markets and metro/ bus stops. I am a photographer and have a small office in the apt, I have lived here for about 5 years. The apartment offers a great view to Montjuic Castle.

The apartment is located in Sant Antoni neighborhood, between Gran Via, Ronda de Sant Antoni, Ronda de San Pau and Paral-lel Avenue, great location, central and quiet. Public transportation to everywhere in Barcelona.

It is really close to the historical landmarks of Barcelona, also known as Ciutat Vella and other interesting areas of Barcelona, such as Plaza España, Raval, Poble Sec, Eixample Dret and Eixample Esquerre. Great location to business trips and vacation.

Guest Access

You have full access to all the usual communal areas like living room and kitchen and can therefore prepare food if you like.

Interaction with Guests

I live in the apt so I am usually available for advice or questions.

The Neighborhood

Great central location that does not suffer from being too touristy, lately a lot of new trendy places have opened in the area that offer a greater choice of local places to visit.

Getting around

There is plenty of public transport, but being very central you might find it is not that necessary.

  • The place is very nice and exactly as it seems in the pictures. Lee is a very kind and helpful host. I would definitely suggest the place to my friends.

  • Lee's apartment is quite enchanting. It combines the contemporary and the traditional in its style and function. Kitchen and bathroom are impeccable. Living room and balcony; inviting and beautiful.
    Located just a block from Mercat Sant Antoni, accesible to Ciutat Vella by foot, and to all means of public transportation. This is a winner.
    The room is small but quite comfortable, perfect for a short term stay.
    Lee is funny and sociable, always available for a chat, yet respectful of my need for privacy.
    I hope to return to this lovely and quaint environment.

  • Lee was great host, very easy to communicate, very flexible. He send me detailed instructions via email how co come from airport which was very easy since there is direct bus line(absolutely no need for taxi). The whole apartment was clean and has everything that is needed. Lee was very flexible with the check-out as well, my plane was departing late and I was able to stay in room whole day since there were no new guests arriving.

  • Lee (email hidden)ry friendly and knowledgeable about Barcelona. The room is simple, but definitely enough for someone who's spending a few days in Barcelona. The location is also awesome, and walking distance to many great places.

  • I stayed with Lee for a month in beautiful Barcelona.

    The apartment itself is amazing. It's large, with a lots of light and perfectly equipped. It is perfectly located near the center without being in the middle of tourist heaven.

    Lee was always nice, uncomplicated and helpful. I can only recommend this place.

  • A nice, bright, airy apartment in a convenient (yet peaceful) area of Barcelona. A true gentleman and an eloquent conversationalist, Lee is not (email hidden), he'll also keep you well entertained. I had the pleasure of staying with him for a few weeks, and it was a thoroughly pleasurable experience.
    Highly recommended!

  • Lee's place is very nice; clean, comfortable, and very well located in a gentrifying neighborhood that's a quick walk to the more touristy areas. Lee himself was very friendly and welcoming. He also had great tips on areas to go out and things to do! Highly recommended.

  • Lee is an excellent host who is both responsible and laid back at the same time and is open and eager to help explain anything about the city. Overall experience was good, but the neighbor is quite loud and it was difficult to sleep and sleep-in in the mornings. In fairness, Lee did speak to the neighbor and they became quiet. If you don't mind this small detail, everything else is perfect!

    July 2013
  • Location perfect, room perfect, price perfect. Lee is a very nice and helpful guy who knows the city. I will come back here!

About
I have travelled quite a lot and lived in several different countries, I spent nearly 5 years in Argentina and most of that time lived in the apt listed in Buenos Aires, when I first moved there it was a fairly quiet barrio but I knew it would become something much more popular, Palermo Viejo was back then very popular with foreigners so it was obvious the place to be was across the tracks. I now live in Barcelona and think the area I live in is perfect, as it is very central without the negative aspects of the overly tourist areas around La Rambla etc. Mercat de San Antoni has everything you need in terms of travel and amenities and you can stroll to the centre in 10 mins, or, in 15 mins you can walk in the other direction and find yourself close to Monjuic and the peace and greenery that it offers. I love going there to sit on the grass and read a book in the shade when it's very hot as not only is there plenty of grass and trees but you usually benefit from cool breezes as well.
