Cosy and sunlight room in an old charming building, in the trendy centre neighbourhood (Born). Balcony views to amazing square. Great location close to the beach and old town sightseeing. Excellent connections
What make the room unique is the sunlight and a beautiful view from the balcony to the large square, because it is so difficult to find in the old town (as well than the tinny lift).
Another strong point is the great location, between the beach and trendiest centre area. You can get everything walking!! . I always recommend to the guest just get lost walking through the small Gothic streets and squares, or the beach.
The flat in the old charming building, with old ceiling and wood floor, is really cosy and warm.
The guest room is equipped with a “student bed”, two mattresses on top of each other (so comfortable in my opinion), one trunk, some hook on the wall and chairs, to drop your stuff. But in case you need more, it is no problem at all to use the wardrobe in the hall.
The square is safe and quite but the traffic. There are wide glass in the window so in my opinion it doesn't disturb.
You have full access to the apartment (living, (email hidden)c), including kitchen and all its stuff.
There is a tinny but really helpful elevator in the building!!
You have your own keys, so you have free access (just respect neighbours please)
In the apartment there are two rooms. The double one I rent, and an individual one where I stay.
I will be present when you arrive to know you and show you the room, the flat and the city.
I am usually out of the apartment all day long until dinner, but don't hesitate to ask for recommendations, talking,..etc, otherwise not problem to give you your space if you do prefer.
I like to go out and I have a really deep sleep, so it is really difficult to disturb me.
"Born" is one of the three old town areas. Is definitely the trendiest one, full of bar, restaurant and art galleries, markets,...etc. A lot of building have been renewed in the last years and it became kind of art quarter of the city (sometimes little bit snob in my opinion) . It has the old town atmosphere but at the same time a lot of contemporaneous events.
You have a train station just one minute walking, with connection to the airport.
As close than "Barceloneta" yellow line metro station to get any place of the city.
And an interesting tourist tour bus stop, just in front home...you can see it from your window of your room.
I give you clean towels and sheets, and I take care of the apartment excepting your room ( I keep out when there are guests)
You have full access to the kitchen and all its stuff in case you want cook.
Long hot showers are also possible
The apartment is in a second floor but there is a small lift.
For the coldest days there is a small electric heater.
good location, good view and kind. :)
We had a great time in Barcelona at Carles’ place! He was very helpful and friendly and made a great restaurant recommendation. The location of the flat is perfect. We walked all over: to museums, bars and restaurants – even Sagrada Familia and Park Güell, though they’re pretty far away. The beach is very close, too – but it’s not too crowded and not very touristy in January. The communication with Carles was really good and everything was uncomplicated. The guest room is sunny and has a balcony; The bed is a “student bed”, two matrasses on top of each other – no problem for us, but if you need a real bed, then not here : ) We definitely recommend the place and hope to come back!
When I went at Carles's place it was my first time in Barcelona. I couldn't have chosen a better place to stay. The flat is so centric, located in the heart of the Born (right behind Picasso Museum!) area and only 5 minutes to the beach! Carles was very nice to me, he helped me to find my way around Barcelona and also we shared some nice wine and chats togeter. I highly recomend Carles and his lovely bright flat!
One of my favorite airbnb experiences thus far! As soon as I got to the apartment I was in love! So much sunlight and a beautiful view from the balcony if Plaça de Palau! The location is amazing... So close to the metro, beach, el born, cafés, bars, EVERYTHING. Also clean and well equipped. Long hot showers are also possible which is an amazing thing!
Carles was a great host with great communication and a very easy check in/out! I would have stayed longer if the place wasn't already booked :)
I was at Carles place around Christmas time. The apartment is very well located right in a square of the Born area. You'll find all you need to visit around you in wolking distance. Carles is a very nice guy and also helpful with your needs.
I suggest Carles's apartment. He is very friendly and welcoming. The location very amazing, el born is very near, Near estacion de francia, near metro stop and Barceloneta beach is near too.
very good location!!!!
Carles is a very friendly and welcoming. Nice guy to talk to and exchange stories with. The house is very clean and comfortable and located in one of the best parts of the city. We will definitely be going back to visit Barcelona and would not hesitate to ask Carles to host us again. Highly recommended!
Carles es un excelente anfitrion, tanto por su buena predisposicion para recomendar sitios como por las condiciones del lugar. La habitacion es preciosa, muy luminosa y el apartamento tambien.
La ubicacion del apartamento es excelente! Altamente recomendable!
Lighty Room was great and I cant think of a better location. We came at great time for the festival Merce and Carles was right there to help point us in the right direction to enjoy the best parts of the festival. My girlfriend and I stayed there for a week and it really felt like home once we got settled. I highly recommend this place and Carles as a host.
It is nice apartment with good view on old public square. Caressing noise as sound background and old system traditional jalousies are making a stylish atmosphere.
