About this listing
A small room with a good twin bed. It can sleep a couple if needs be, but bear in mind it is quite small.
Please read description properly before emailing questions.
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 finer optic 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.
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.
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.
There is plenty of public transport, but being very central you might find it is not that necessary.
I don't really feel I need to set house rules, but apparently airbnb wants it, so just use common sense, it is a nonsmoking apt but there are balconies you can use if you want to smoke and I even have ashtrays!
If you want have a great time in Barcelona then you definitely need to stay at Lee's apartment. It is perfectly located. Close to the most travel
attractions, beach. We lived in a small room together, and that was pretty comfortable. The apartment is very clean and sunny. Lee is a wonderful host who always prompts, helps and makes your stay as comfortable as possible.
Lee was a great host. The place was very and the room although small was very comfortable. It did get hot at night but the fan helped alot. It is located very close to la ramblas and the metro. highly recommended
Lee was very nice and helped us a lot. Thanks for his tips and advices. The place is close to the city, the green spaces and the beach. U can take the bus and the metro or walk if u want.
Lee's place was great! The appartment is in a great location, less then 10min to la Rambla (the main street), but still far enogh from the center to avoid the touritsy buzz. The neigbourhood is packed with great tapas bars (Ramon just across the street-perfect catalonian food), seefood restaurants and supermarkets and only a few steps away from the metro station. The apartment has a nice and warm feel about it and is very simply but stylishly decorated. The only downside is that the bathroom and the kitchen could be cleaner.. But Lee was a great and helpful host! Thanks for making our stay in Barcelona great :)
Spędziliśmy w mieszkaniu Lee 8 nocy. Zdjęcia jak najbardziej odzwierciedlają stan faktyczny. Sam gospodarz jest miły i chętny do pomocy. Lokalizacja mieszkania jest w porządku, blisko stacja metra czy autobusu. Jednakże jeśli zależy ci na plaży to zdecydowanie warto korzystać z metra bądź autobusu, na pieszo jest dość daleko.
Ponadto bardzo elastycznie podchodzi do godzin zameldowania i wymeldowania - bardzo dziękujemy za miły pobyt :)
Lee is a nice and helpful host. He gave a lot of useful advice to us. The location of the flat is also good as it very close to metro station.

Big shout to the cleaner & highly recommended location

About the Host, Lee
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.
