The Space

I am Olga from Barcelona; my girlfriend and I live in a beautiful apartment, large and sunny in the heart of Barcelona. But I enjoy being in a very quiet area in the neighbourhood of Sant Pere, near the Born.
I rent two bedrooms, for one or two people. I have two posts in Airbnb so you can see the best option for you.
This room is quite big, very nice and shinny. Has a balcony with very nice views, aso from the tower bell of the church.
We share the living room, kitchen, bathroom, and a storage room where you can leave bags or backpacks.
I will provide you your own space in the kitchen (fridge and kitchen cabinet) and bathroom for your stuff.
Also we have elevator so don't worry about carring up your luggage!
The flat is in a strategic area in front of the church of Sant Pere (the oldest in Barcelona), where there are several restaurants and bars, where you can sit on the terrace.

The area around us is quiet, and full of small neighbourhood shops, restaurants and bars with terraces.
At home the atmosphere is quiet, spacious and usually sunny.

Getting around

How to arrive:
To arrive home from Airport El Prat, the best option is taking the Aerobus to Plaça Catalunya (last stop). Once you get off the bus go on your right and take Fontanella (is the first on the left corner with comercial centre. You will cross Plaça Urquinaona, and from there take c/ Trafalgar (is quite long and with a curve) you keep on Trafalgar till my street LLuis el Piadós (right side)

From Girona Airport you just can take a Bus to Barcelona that sops in Estació del Nord, very close from home. You need to walk to Arc de Trionf, once you are in front of the arc, turn right and take Carrer Trafalgar (towards cars directions) till my street LLuis el Piados (second on your left side).

If you are arriving by train, for example to Sants Estació, you have to change platform to number 8 and take any train and stop in Arc de Trionf.

  • Olga was super wonderful, and so is her place! It looks just as charming and beautiful as it does in the photos. It's a couple minutes walk to the Arc de Triomf metro station - which is only a stop or two away from the 'hub' stations to switch to all other lines; it's a bus ride away from the airport; it's convenient and I felt safe walking home late at night. Olga has a lot of recommendations and info on places to visit / to eat in Barcelona. Although she was busy with work, she made sure another Airbnb guest and me were doing fine during our stay. She was always easy to reach via text or email. She's all around a lovely host!

  • Had a great stay with Olga. Truly a sunny (when it is not raining), spacious room in a very pleasant part of town, and just the right walking distance to the hub of the old city. Olga and Erika were great friendly hosts. I would come back to Barcelona and stay with Olga again.

    April 2014
  • Olga and her partner, Erika, were lovely people, friendly and helpful. The apartment was very easy to find vbased on Olga's directions, and only a short walk from the metro. The apartment was clean, pretty and centrally located to many sights. Nearby were many fruit stalls, bakeries and restaurants. For a convenient nightcap, you can go to the bar next door which has outdoor (email hidden)e neighborhood was very nice with the city's oldest church across the street.

  • The apartment is so neat and quiet and location is very convenience to get to the city center. You can either take the metro which is very close to the house or just walk to there; it around take you 10 mins. There is plenty of amenities around the apartment, including the pharmacy, restaurants, the bakery, the supermarket and groceries. Olga is a very freindly and nice girl, and it is my pleasure to have the chance to stay in her house for 6 days to visit Barcelona!

  • Olga's apartment is beautiful, clean, and the perfect place to stay in Barcelona. This was my first experience with Airbnb and I'm very happy that I chose Olga's apartment. It is located in a safe and convenient neighborhood, where it was easy to walk to many of the sights in Barcelona - La Rambla, La Boquerria, Barceloneta, Arc de Triomphe, Placa Catalunya, El Gotic, etc. It was also close to several metro stops, and the Aerobus stop was about a 10 minute walk, so it was super easy to get to and from the airport (BCN) for cheap. The internet was also very reliable, and Olga went out of her way to set out maps and other tourist information so that I had an extremely pleasant stay. I would love the opportunity to stay with her again.

    February 2014
  • My stay at Olga's house was a real pleasure, and really helpful. I was there for almost a week after Olga let me extend my stay, since I was still searching for an appartment.

    The location of the place was perfect, in a quiet and very cute, calm little street, but also 5 minutes away from the metro, and from principal streets with bus stops and cabs all the time.

    Also, Olga was very helpful, providing me with maps, restaurants names, general information on the city and various neighborhood. She was discreet and let me my space, but also available and friendly :)

    I strongly recommend staying at Olga's place !! The room has a lot of space and light, the flat is quiet and tidy, the people are friendly and the neighborhood is great !!

    Thanks again for everything Olga, and I hope I will see you soon :)

  • I've had great time at Olga's place. The flat is very nice, cosy and convinient. The view from my room was amazing! The location is also perfect. And the most important thing for me was that Olga is a very friendly and easy-going person. I'll stay at the same place when come to Barcelona again. Thank you!)

  • I stayed at the single room 10days. Olga's house was exactly like the photos and it's one of the cleanest house ever (in temporary case). Room is cosy and good to sleep. I slept well deeply always. Olga helped me when I was in difficult situation in Barcelona. She sincerely tried to help me anytime when I asked something. She is very rational person with right manner as well. Excellent!

About
I am Olga, a Spanish girl in my 30's. Very social, kind, pretty smiling, respectful and open minded. I like to receive people at home and being a great host but I work hard so I like to be relaxed and quiet at home. I wish that guests respect this and also my space. I live a healthy life, I love my dancing classes of Flamenco and Lindy Hop. I like having nice walks around the city and the sea, watching movies and going out for appetizers in nice places. I love discovering new restaurants with great food. But most of all, I love travelling and know other cultures!
