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!
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.
