"Sants" district is 15mis walk from Barcelona's centre, and one of the most lively and interesting areas of the city.
Located in the very famous Plaça España, is ideal for those who attend to international conventions in "Fira de Barcelona"
The brand new 'Arenas' Shopping complex - designed by the prestigious Hight Tech architect Richard Rogers over an old Bull Rings, offers everything you may need going from supermarkets, all kind of shops, restaurants, caffes, cinemas to a gym.
At Plaça España you can also find the The Magic Fountain, one of the last projects on the site of the 1929 Universal Exhibition, which included the cascades and smaller fountains which fill Avinguda de Maria Cristina and its dancing water show.
Just arround the corner ( i mean it literally) you´ll find The Caixa Forum, one of the main Modern Art Cultural Centers and The Olympic Stadium.
The Cataluya National Art Museum, The Mies Van der Rohe Pabillion and The Joan Miró fundation are also very close by. You can see some of them from the window.
A 15 minutes walk in the opposite direction and you're in the nerve centers of Barcelona: Plaça de Catalunya, leading on one side to the Ramblas and on the other to Passig the Gràcia Av.
At 3 blocks from the entrance, you´ll find the aerobus stop 'Plaza Espaya' and the Metro Lines 1 and 3 (red and green), from where you can easily connect to any area of the city.
The area is really safe and offers an excellent variety of shops, cafes & restaurants and it's out of the main tourist trap of Old Barcelona (better looking in picts than in real life) but only 20 mins away from the gothic quarter.
Places of interest:
-There's a large supermarket Mercadona and "Veritas Organic products" supermarket (in the Arenas shopping centre) very close by.
-A Bike rental store just arround the corner
For an extra 20 euros we offer transfer service from the airport.

Gabriela was quick to respond. The flat's location is really good as it is close to the Espanya metro station which brings you to other places in Barcelona quickly and easily. Also, it is very close to the Magic Fountain. Gabriela's husband, Miguel, received us and was friendly. He showed us around and gave us tips and advices on travelling in Barcelona. The flat is comfortable and very well-equipped. Other than the small issue of walking up 4 stories, I highly recommend the place because of its value, proximity and comfortability.
Gospodarz przyjął nas bardzo serdecznie. Był wyrozumiały. Nasz samolot się popsuł i na miejsce przyjechaliśmy z prawie 1,5h opóźnieniem.
Mieszkanie wygląda tak samo jak na zdjęciach. Okolica super!! Położne jest tuż obok Placu Espanya.
Dla osób będących pierwszy raz w Barcelonie mieszkanie jest idealne!
15 min Areobusem na lotnisko, 30 min spacerkiem na Camp Nou, 20 min spacerkiem na Plac Catalunya gdzie blisko jest na La Rambla i dalej na plażę. Z Placu Espanya mamy bezpośrednią linie metra do Parku Guell'a a stamtąd 15 min spacerem do Sagrada Famillia. No i obok mieszkania są znane i popularne fontanny oraz Park Olimpijski. :)
Świetny kontakt z gospodarzami.
First and foremost Gabriela is quick to respond to airbnb messages which make life easier. When I got dropped off at Plaza de Espanya near the house I had no idea where I was going so I called her husband (who Gabriela gave me the number for) and he talked me through the directions. He was very nice and showed me around the flat. Overall the flat was nice and what we expected. The negatives of the place are that it is up 4 floors (which gets tiring) and the shower is extra tiny. Besides that, the location is no doubt the best part. Plaza de Espanya is super close which had three metro lines and is close to the beautiful national museum.
Nous avons été accueilli chaleureusement par Miguel malgré notre arrivée un peu tardive et ils ont été très arrangeants pour le jour de notre départ, nous avons pu laisser nos valises dans l'appartement. L'appartement est propre et identique aux photos, situé proche de la place de Espanya et du métro. Il reste tout de même un peu loin du centre historique si vous souhaitez faire tout à pied. N'hésitez pas à aller voir le spectacle des fontaines jute à côté.
Je recommande ce logement!
Muchas gracias, la pasamos genial en Barcelona ! El piso ha sido perfecto (aunque el agua de la ducha salia un poco fria), muy bien ubicado y equipado con todo lo necesario. Miguel nos esperaba cuando llegamos, nos explico todo y fue muy amable.
Gracias otra vez, ha sido un placer alojarse en lo suyo !
Very sweet hosts, apartment exactly what promised! Fontains are just around the corner and surroundings are very peaceful!!! We had now problems at all! Thank You, Gabriela and Miguel
Cosy little flat close to the magic fountain and the Espana metro stop, which can take you to all the main areas. Gabriela's husband Miguel was a great host, providing a pick up service from the airport and quickly sorting out an issue we had with the hot water.
As mentioned in other reviews, the shower is quite small and there are quite a few steps to climb to the 4th floor. Luckily we didn't have big luggage so it wasn't a problem! The internet was quite slow but that might be the standard speed for the area.
Overall this is a recommended nice little place to stay in Barcelona!
