About this listing
an apartment with a lot of light near the sea and very well connected, it's about 20 minutes walking from the city center and 10 by metro. i have two little rooms with a single bed each.
come and stay with full access to the apartment! wi-fi, washing-machine, dryer, and fully equipped kitchen!. to use the washing-mashine plus dryer would be 3 euros each time.
metro and bus: "llacuna" metro stations (yellow line) it is just 3 blocks away of the apartment and with six stops you'll be in the CITY CENTER (10 min). red line, is also very close, about 5 minutes walking. with these two metro lines you can get to most places of barcelona. also, if you want to enjoy bus there are some just in front of the building that will also bring you to the center of the city.
about the area: in it's origin it was a residential area of St. Martin of Provençals that grew quickly in population and industry. in the late nineteenth century was the area with the highest industrial concentration of catalonia. today is a constantly changing area, located where you want the new technological district of Barcelona, 22 @, "cohabiting" with old factories and neighborhood life trying preserve the FAMILY ATMOSPHERE that it is lost in other popular districts of Barcelona.

David is very friendly and welcoming. The apartment is very nice in a well-furnished building. It is 5 minutes from one subway line and 10 minutes from another - about a 15-20 minute subway ride from the center. Also a 15 minute walk from the beach. Overall great location!
Also Arthur the cat is one of the friendliest cats I've ever met.
You couldn't ask for a better host. He was great! Helpedyou with anything you needed. It was my first time in Barcelona, and thanks to David, i was able to find my way around. Helped me with all my questions, as well as invited me out with him to take a walking tour through downtown Barcelona. His place is clean, and quiet. He even has a cute, and friendly cat which loves to play with everyone, as long as you play with it the way he likes lol All and all, it was an excelent place to stay, easy to get around, close to the trains. right wn the street from the beach.
My two-week stay at David's place was very enjoyable. The apartment is very nice and well located. Good restaurants, cafés and bars in the area, but still a bit from the center, so rather quiet and safe. 10-15 minutes walk to the beach. David was a good host and easy to talk with, and his cat Arthur is adorable! Would recommend.
I like the location because it's slightly out of tourists area so quite but close to the beach. David was friendly and nice so I feel comfortable while I was staying. It's a small room without air condition, I was a bit too warm while sleeping. Generally I liked it all.
David was a great host. He has this beautiful apartment steps away from the metro and the apartment was neat and tidy. He was very helpful in showing me the best places to walk, eat and get around. He was super chill.
