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!
From airport by train: Take train from Barcelona El Prat airport to Sants Estacion, catch metro green line to Plaza España and walk 5 minutes to the apartment, or walk from Sants Estacion directly in 15 minutes or less.

Hermann's place was great! excellent location and very well connected by metro. Nice locality to enjoy Barcelona without having to tackle the touristic rush. Yet, 10 minutes away from the centre.
Hermann is a great guy as well. Very friendly and he helps you in whatever you want to know in and around the place.
All in all...a great recommendation from my side!
Hermann is a great host. Hands down. I really enjoyed staying at his place, so when I extended my trip, I stayed in his place longer! The neighborhood is clean, safe and nice. It is also not very far from the center (I walked to the center in under 10 minutes so many times). The house is clean, the room is nice and organized. Hermann is professional and helpful. If I needed anything he was always ready to help. I really appreciate his attentiveness. He really wants to make sure your stay is comfortable and accommodating. Besides this, he has excellent recommendations and tips on what to do/see and where to eat in Barcelona. Thank you so much Hermann. I will find a way to come back, one way or another. :-)
This flat was very comfortable and so beautiful.
I was stay for 6days.
When I arrived,
Hermann was information about flat and Barcelona for me with kindness.
I wish go to Barcerona and stay here, next time!
I'll recommend this flat to everyone!!
Hermann's flat was very comfortable, clean and conveniently located. It was easy to walk everywhere. He left us maps and suggestions for eateries and points of interest. I highly recommend staying here!
The flat was easy to find and really well located. We arrived earlier than expected but Hermann turned up on time to greet us, and gave us everything we needed to make the most of the place. The room was comfortable and tidy and the flat had everything we needed - a real bargain! Would definitely stay again when visiting BCN next time.
Hermann is a very friendly host. He gave us good advice on places to see, restaurants, mode of transport, etc. His house and the green room is very charming and sunny. It is a typical Barcelona house and the little balcony in the room is very cute. The location is absolutely excellent, in a nice neighbourhood and very very close to the metro and bus stations. We (my husband and I) had a great time here, for 4 nights.
However, the washrooms could use some more attention. It was clean when we arrived, but got messy progressively. The sheets in the room could have been a bit more cleaner too. And since Hermann was not home that weekend, it proved difficult to fix these things. So, cleanliness wise We would rate it as average.
But, we still recommend this house for its location, charm and Hermann's friendly attitude. I'm sure with a little bit more attention, the cleanliness can be fixed fully too.
Thanks Bhavna! Sorry about the mess. As you said the room and shared places are always clean when someone arrives, but keep this spaces clean depends and is the responsibility of every guest. Normally Airbnb guests are tidy and clean but few times some one forget this. Sorry.
My stay at Hermann's place was great and just what I was looking for during my one-night stay! I made the booking request 36hours prior to arrival and he responded immediately, even making it possible for me to check in early and check out late the next day. He rents out the two other rooms in his appartment, too, and is very professional about it, while at the same time pleasantly personal and welcoming. he showed me around his place and also pointed to sites i shouldn't miss in Barcelona. The room, bathroom and shared rooms were clean, fresh bed linen. The location is close to the metro in a housing area with families (playgrounds outside - one for kids and one for dogs ;-) ) where I felt safe walking home at night by myself (police station next to metro, too). Walk from the oldtown center is 15-20mins max. The bus from the airport stops near the metro (ca. 5euros) and the train station for national connections is two stops from his place, ATM next to gas station on main street and in shopping mall. Small restaurants and groceries where locals go are nearby. I would come again! Thank you, 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.
