The space

A double room in a serene apartment (it is my home, where I am living myself) for rent in a historic building dating from the medieval period, located on the 3rd floor, and the stairs was the ones going to the watchtower in the original building dating from the 16th century. The bathroom is shared and always kept in prestine condition.
For breakfast you will find coffee, tea, bread, pastries, yoghurt and muesli etc, and this can be enjoyed on the roof terrace if the weather permits, which is also a nice place to have a glass of wine after a day of sightseeing or shopping.
On the doorstep you will find the Picasso museum, independent boutiques, art galleries, artists workshops, and this is the Borne area known for plenty of trendy bars and restaurants.
Several metro stations and bus stops are nearby, howewer most of the sights are within walking distance; the cathedral, Santa Maria del Mar, the beaches and Las Ramblas can be reached in less than 10 minutes.

Really cute room! Small but worked perfect for what we wanted and needed! It was a very comfortable bed and the little balcony was especially lovely! Very picturesque and a great location RIGHT by the Picasso museum so it was easy to find!

If I could only rave about one thing, I’d have to say that Xavier’s place has THE most comfortable bed - we almost didn’t want to leave it! But the Airbnb is in a great neighborhood (right next to the Picasso museum) with amazing roof views. I also want my future living room and …

This is such a great place - centrally located to some of the best restaurants and shopping in Barcelona. It's an adorable apartment with everything you need, and I really loved having a little balcony overlooking the street. Xavier was a perfect host, I hope to be back soon!

Xavier’s place was everything and more. The other reviews that mentioned the tight stairway weren’t lying but I would lift our oversized suitcase up it everyday to stay here. The house was stunning with mid century touches and the old architecture in the heart of old Barcelona. T…

Fantastic place located close to everywhere you want to see. We did not use public transport once while we were in Barcelona, just walked everywhere from the flat.

Xavier’s place was really lovely. We were very comfortable and felt at ease in his home, he allowed us to use his kitchen as if it were our own and the house itself was beautiful. He was super friendly, helpful and kind and obviously took pride in hosting.
