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.

O Hermann foi excelente enquanto anfitrião, sempre disponível e simpático. A casa do Hermann, antiga mas asseada, está muito bem localizada perto da Praça de Espanha, Fonte Mágica, Museu d'Art da Catalúnia e estações de metro e autocarro. A casa transmite a verdadeira essência cosmopolita da cidade. Adorei tudo!
Such a pleasant experience! Wonderful location and the flat was just as described. We only saw Hermann a few times but he was very kind and helpful.
Hermann is great! We arrived to the apartment at 6, and he was there waiting for us. Before we arrived, he was very helpful in helping us get to the apartment, and was very friendly!
The room is just as the pictures describe. It is very open, and there is a nice breeze if you open the window.
The area is extremely safe, and quite convenient as well. We were about a 5 minute walk from Plaça Espanya and 7 minutes from the Montjuic fountains, and about a 25 minute walk from the Gothic Quarter and the Rambla.
When we got to the apartment, Hermann also showed us the best places to eat, and even walked us over to the only place that was open at 6:30 (we were very hungry after our flight)! He also pointed out the places we should go to and gave us some places that were a little further from his place.
We would definitely recommend staying with Hermann, and will return to his place if we're ever in Barcelona again!
Herman is a lovely host, he made me and my friend very welcome, talked us through his favourite local hangouts with the aid of a massively useful personalised map in the beautiful lounge, checked up with how we were getting along partway through our stay and let us know about the comings and goings of other airbnb'ers in the apartment so we weren't alarmed when new faces appeared.
Herman's description of the apartment was very accurate. It has gorgeous tall ceilings, lovely old fittings like a double bedroom door and floor to ceiling windows which are fine to have open overnight - we weren't bothered by mosquitos though my friend was glad she brought earplugs as it can be a little noisy on the street below but I slept through it no problem. The building has a very romantic feel about it with wrought iron staircase and a helpful (though not essential) lift. He also kindly supplied us with a couple of towels on request (we went Ryanair hand-luggage only...).
The neighbourhood is great, we (two young women) felt very safe walking around in the (late) evening, there are lots of little cafes and shops for food and breakfasts out, some great bars/eateries (see Herman's recommendations) and easy access either by foot or metro into town/to and from the airport. I'd definitely look into staying there again next time I'm in Barcelona!
We stayed here for two nights and i must say i was pleasantly surprised to see how accurate the description was. The room was very clean with a small balcony that made the room airy and bright. The whole apartment was immaculate and the toilet and the shower were separate, which made it very convenient for multiple people to use. The neighborhood was not in the city center but only a few minutes from the metro which was great.
Hermann greeted us upon our arrival and was very welcoming. He had a map that he showed us of the city and told us of some great places to visit as well as some good restaurant recommendations.
If you keep the balcony door open at night, it does get a little noisy at night. However, totally worth the fresh air!
i will stay with Hermann again whenever i visit next.
Hermann's place was great with perfect location and facilities. We arrived after 12am, but he was waiting for us and greeted nicely. He briefly went through the house and showed map, I guess he made a map around that place, which was very helpful! Hermann recommended few tapas places he goes and it was so so good that we went twice actually.
바르셀로나에 가신다면 이 장소 추천이요!!
물론 람블라스등 중심지가 더 편할수 있지만, 헤르만아저씨집은 다운타운에서 도보15분이면 되구요, 몬쥬익분수 5분 거리입니다, 아저씨가 추천해주는 로컬 타파스 집들도 너무 맛있어요! 까탈루냐 스타일의 정말 로컬들만 가는 맛집을 원하신다면 헤르만 아저씨네 집으로! ^^
Hermann ist ein sehr aufmerksamer und hilfsbereiter Gastgeber. Er kam jeden Tag in der Wohnung vorbei und hat sauber gemacht und sich erkundigt ob er uns behilflich sein kann.
Die Wohnung liegt sehr zentral und entspricht der Beschreibung und den Fotos. Die Gegend hat uns sehr gut gefallen, die Geschäft, Lokale und das Treiben auf der Straße ist sehr lebhaft.
Vielen Dank Hermann und herzliche Grüße, Anni und Horacio ;-)

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.
