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.
Walking distances:
- 3 minutes from train and metro Arc de Triomf
- 5 minutes Ciutadella Park.
- 5 minutes from the bus station "Estacio del Nord" (Girona airport connection)
- 8 minutes from "Estacio de França"
- 5 minutes from the center of the Born
- 3 minutes walk to the Palau de la Música
- 6 minutes from Portal de l'Angel (main shopping street)
- 7 minutes from the Cathedral of Barcelona.
- 10 minutes from the Ramblas
- 15 minutes from the beach of Barceloneta

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.

I know many places to recommend to you and can help you with everything you need.

The Neighborhood

I love the atmosphere in my neighbourhood, local and speciality stores (organic food, vintage clothes, vinyl records, wineries, vintage decoration), the mix of cultures, the architectural style of the old city, good restaurants, terraces in summer, the cultural centres

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.

  • My experience with the host was great. She was friendly and hospitable. The room and the facilities were exactly as expected and the location or area was perfect. Very central and close to all the sites that I wanted to see and to all the major transport stops and routes.

  • I loved my time at Olga's place. Olga was a friendly and gracious hostess, ready with maps, advice, and suggestions. My room was clean (the entire apartment was impeccably clean) and the little balcony (email hidden) for people-watching. The neighborhood has everything one could ask for -- plazas, churches, parks, shops, and fabulous little restaurants. That does mean that there is a good bit of foot traffic in the area so be prepared for the sounds of people at night.

  • I had a wonderful stay at Olga and Erica's apartment! They provided me with a beautiful, well supplied room, lots of information, and a friendly, warm environment. The apartment is located in a great part of the city, it's nice and clean, full of character, and just all around great! Thanks for a great stay- can't beat airbnb!

  • My first airbandb experience was great! Olga's home is lovely, light and clean and located in a convenient part of Barcelona, a neighborhood with character. My view was of a church tower(but no bells) and a charming little plaza. Olga & Erica were incredibly helpful and accommodating, but allowed me my privacy. I enjoyed my short stay with them!

  • Amazing accommodations right in the old town of Barcelona. Olga's place is amazing. This single room is incredibly quaint and beautiful, equipped with its own balcony and plenty of privacy. Communal living room, bathroom, and kitchen with this rental is lovely as well. Olga is a wonderfully warm, enthusiastic, and helpful host. She answered all of my questions thoroughly before I arrived and was very accommodating and helpful with recommendations upon my arrival. Her home truly is a gem, and staying with her made my time in Barcelona so easy and lovely. HIGHLY RECOMMEND this house and host!

    Also, the place is very easy to find as per Olga's directions in her listing -- quick walk from the Placa de Catalunya Aerobus stop. The neighborhood is very charming as well with many restaurants and shops. Also within walking distance to most major tourist attractions. Even La Sagrada Familia, which is probably furthest away can truly be reached by foot (about a 25 minute walk).

    I would wholeheartedly recommend this stay to anyone going to Barcelona. And I have! :)

  • I must say I am 100% agree with all the reviews left my previous guests who stayed with Olga's residence.
    Olga's residence is very clean and dust free. I am really amaze with her residence decoration, very neat and details oriented.
    Her residence is walkable to all places of interest include Sagrada Familia, beaches, port, Casa Batlo and etc..
    She and her partner are very welcoming and absolutely lovely, lively, and indeed very helpful.
    I would not hesitate to recommend her residence to my friends, family and anyone.

  • I had a great stay at Olga's. The apartment was beautiful- exactly as pictured- super clean , and very comfortable. The location in the awesome el Born neighborhood was perfect- lots of fun restaurants, bars, cafés and shops. The beautiful park, La Ciutadella, is right around the corner, as is the Arc de Triomf metro station, making it very easy to explore the city. I can't recommend this place highly enough and would love to come back!

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 (email hidden) 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 (email hidden), 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!
