Interaction with Guests
Lo más destacable es precisamente la ubicación, está en el barrio de Sant Antoni tocando plaza España, una localización ideal por lo lo céntrica. La zona es muy tranquila a pesar de la gran oferta de ocio del barrio como restaurantes, bares de copas, teatro y puntos turísticos y de interés como la fuente mágica, la fira de Barcelona, los museos MNAC y Joan Miro, Caixaforum, el Poble Espanyol, Las Arenas. A todos estos sitios se puede ir andando en 5 minutos.
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.
How to arrive to the apartment from the airport:
From airport by bus: Take Aerobus from Barcelona El Prat airport to Plaza España, walk 5 minutes to the apartment!

Host was great at showing us the map and suggesting places to eat near by. Neighborhood can get loud at night but host was kind to give us ear buds.
Hermann nous a reçu chez lui le jour de notre arrivée. Il nous a fait visiter son chouette appartement situé dans un quartier calme mais vivant, proche du métro et l'Arena.
La chambre était confortable et le reste de l'appartement fonctionnel. Hermann nous a également conseillé quelques adresses et s'est assuré, tout au long du séjour que nous n’ayons besoin de rien.
Les autres personnes dans l'appartement étaient très agréables et nous avons fait de belles rencontres dans Barcelone.
Revenir? Pourquoi pas!
Hermann was a very kind and helpful host. He did everything for our commodity. The location is great, well connected. The apartment is very clean and cozy, although the green room could be a little noisy in the morning. I would recommend and repeat the experience at any time!
Hermann was very welcoming and flexible with my arrival. He was so filled with recommendations for the area when I got in and always had a suggestion for whatever we wanted to do.
The room was clean and colorful as described and we loved the little balconies where we could sit and watch the city. The living room was so beautiful and filled with light, as well as helpful maps, business cards for restaurants etc. Neighborhood was also a nice mix of convenience to the airport and older, family charm.
My only complaint would be we ran out of toilet paper since all the rooms were full of guests.
Miles de gracias Hermann por tu gestion y tu preocupacion a lo largo de nuestra estadia.
Todo lo que se ve en las fotos esta de acuerdo con la habitacion verde !
Hermann piensa en todo y dispone unos mapas y guias turisticas para ayudar con la preparacion de sus dias de paseo en Barcelona.
El departamento esta muy bien ubicado al lado de la plaza Espanya (y de la Fuente Mágica). Hay muchisimos locales cerca donde uno puede tapear, tomar desayuno, tomarse un refresco ... Pero eso tambien hace que la habitacion esta bastante ruidosa con el trafico de la calle. Por eso disponen de tapones para los viajeros ! Se agradece el ventilador que esta disponible para poder refrescar un poco el ambiente veraniego de Barcelona.
El baño lo compartimos con unos viajeros pero sin tener nunca ningun problema, al igual que la cocina.
Tambien, nos autorizo a dejar nuestras maletas en el departamento el último dia después del check out a las 12 y se junto a despedirnos cuando volvimos a buscarlas
En fin,lo pasamos como champions en Bcn !!! Gracias Hermann !!!
Hermann is awesome! He greeted us so well and took the time to show us a map with everything in the neighborhood, he was very helpful and had great recommendations. The apartment is fabulous, the rooms as well, you can use the big kitchen, living room, good location near plaza de España, many good bars and restaurants around, near the buses and metro stops. We had a really nice time in Barcelona mostly because we felt like home in Hermann's apartment. Muchas gracias Hermann! Hasta pronto!
Hermann was an excellent host. He provided great info on places to eat, drink, and visit in the areas around the apt. He seems to enjoy having people stay with him and has developed a great routine for making his guests feel at home.

About the Host, Hermann
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.
