Interaction with Guests
We live here so we use to meet our guests at home. Some times we work a lot and maybe we don't see much our guest.
We are located in a strategic point of the city where we have everything we need nearby. We walk everywhere, and if we need, we have metro, train and busses just next to the corner.
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. We also have one of the buildings considered artistic heritage: the Palau de la Música, just 5 minutes walk.
Also, another highlight of the city is the Arc de Trionf. Reference point to get home.
Or the Parc de la Ciutadella, a beautiful park IXX century, great place to go for a walk, jogging, yoga, dance or swing tip-tap on the center stand or just breathe fresh air.
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.

From Jun 1 - Sep 30, 2015 the minimum stay is 4 nights.
I stayed at this place for 4 days straight from my international flight, and it was the best welcome! I was welcomed late at night with a big smile and hug, and settled in nicely. The apartment was very clean, very organised, exactly, if not better, as deceived. There was a desk full of tourist information, and I was allowed to take their lonely planet pocket guide wherever I went which was a massive help. The hosts are two of the loveliest people I've met, and it's a joy I got to stay with them. They were very open to giving advice and chatting about your day, but also allowed you your privacy and time out. The place is close to everything- arc de triomf is just around the corner, sagrada familia a 15 minute walk, the gothic quarter/la ribera/cathedral 5 minutes away, and la Rambla a 10 minute walk. The room I was in was lovely and clean and bright, and had a beautiful balcony. The neighbourhood was very nice as well. Cannot recommend and praise enough! Definitely the best start to my airbnb/Europe experience. Thanks for everything :)
Olga and Erika's apartment in Barcelona and the experience staying with them was wonderful! The room is bright, with high ceilings and french doors and a small balcony that overlooks a small piazza. The location is ideal and you can easily walk to many parts of the city. My hosts were especially warm and so helpful with ideas, directions and suggestions of restaurants. I highly recommend staying here if your travels bring you to Barcelona, not only for the clean and beautiful apartment in a great location, but also for the warm Spanish hospitality. Thank you Olga and Erika!
Staying at Olga's was such a pleasant experience. The room was exactly as described with a comfortable bed. The internet was fast and reliable and the neighborhood quickly became a favorite.
The hosts themselves were also great. Always available to answer my questions and or just chat with. I felt welcome right away and they didn't seem to mind that I was in the apartment a lot due to fact I had to work.
I will definitely look into staying here again when I return to Barcelona!
Once I arrived received a warm welcome from Olga and Erika and they gave me a quick tour at their house which was absolutely great. The room was perfect it had a nice little balcony that faces a small square with a few small bars.
Although I visited Barcelona for a design conference I took the opportunity in the morning and evening to explore the beautiful streets of El Born. This area is absolutely amazing to explore and find some great hidden coffee/breakfast/dinner spots outside of the regular tourist area’s.
I would definitely recommend to stay at this place with these 2 great hosts!
Olga and Erika thank you so much for everything :)
Olen todella tyytyväinen, että valitsin tämän paikan. Tunsin oloni kotoisaksi ja tervetulleeksi. Asunto ja sijainti olivat erinomaiset. Oikeastaan kokemus ylitti odotukseni. Kaikki asiat on matkailijaa varten ajateltu ja kaikki toimii hyvin. Nopea ja toimiva Wifi yhteys. Huone on tilava ja erittäin siisti. Yhteinen kylpyhuone hyvä ja siisti. Sänky ja patja ovat hyviä. Heti asunnon ulkopuolella on vanhan kaupungin tunnelma. Ikkunasta ja ulko-ovesta avautuu placa de Sant Pere. Kulmilla on eläväisiä kapeita katuja, paljon pieniä ravintoloita, kahviloita ja kauppoja. Pieni miinus jollekin voi olla ihmisten äänet kaduilta iltaisin. MInua se ei haitannut, koska halutessaan saa täydellisen hiljaisuuden korvatulppien avulla. Sijainnissa on hyvää myös se, että muutaman minuutin kävelyn päässä vanhankaupungin keskeiset kohteet, liikenneyhteydet, puistot jne. Majoittaja Olga oli mukava, ystävällinen ja lämmin ihminen. Menen mielellään uudestaan samaan paikkaan. Suosittelen. Terveisin, Timo
I am an elder, solo, "big girl" traveller and Olga and Erika's flat worked out well for me. Just around the corner from the buses, the metro, train and right at the Arc de Triomphe, one of the hop on/hop off bus tour stops.
Bed comfortable, great shower, space for groceries in pantry and refrig, loads of space in the single room for my two huge luggages, balcony view, Mediterranean air.
Olga and Erika answered every question I had and Olga was immediate answering all the questions I had via the airbnb website before I even left home.
If you have any anxieties at all about being older and slow moving and being a solo traveller, staying with Olga and Erika will take all those worries away. At their place, you are on your own time.
It was a pleasure meeting them.
I left some Barcelona adventures undone so hopefully I can come back and do them and stay here.
Olga y Erica son excelentes anfitrionas, me hicieron sentir como en casa. El departamento es precioso y en condiciones impecables. Está muy bien ubicado, en uno de los barrios más bonitos. Las chicas te ayudan con lo que necesites. Totalmente recomendado.
