Before I begin with the description, I would like you all to know that the reviews until July 2013 are from my previous flat. The description and pictures have been updated to my current one. (a new, better location) :)
My flat is spacious, all renovated and cozy. It has one big bathroom, a living room with a nice street view, a modern kitchen that you can use any time (I provide free tea and snacks to have breakfast in the morning) and two bedrooms. I also have a washing machine for your use, but please, do not use it too early in the morning or too late at night due to respect for the neighbor's rest. I always have detergent and softener (no extra charge) This bedroom is divided in two parts. The first part is where the bed is, it has a double bed with a comfortable mattress, some hangers attached to the wall to hang your coat or clothes and a good space to place your suitcases and other belongings. The second part is across the hallway where you have a little couch and a small window. If you rent this room, this part is exclusively for your use. It is like a private little living room where you can chill or read a book, or have breakfast in the morning.Clean sheets and towels are provided to make your suitcase lighter. :)
This is a shared flat and it's ideal for travelers who want to meet other travelers exploring the city. I don't live in the flat, but I'm living in another flat two blocks away from this one and if you need me, I can be there in five minutes. I also welcome you personally to hand you the keys, explain everything about the flat, and give you useful recommendations to enjoy Barcelona to the fullest. If you have heavy luggage, I'm an expert in carrying it up the stairs and I'd love to give you a hand :)
Raval (my neighborhood) is one of the most central, popular and diverse neighborhoods in Barcelona. You can find all kinds of restaurants, from the typical Spanish tapas to exotic cuisines from the middle East, Asia and Africa. There are also many convenient stores to buy goodies, a big supermarket, fruit shops, barber shops, and small shops to by clothes or souvenirs .
La Rambla, Plaça Catalunya, MACBA, CCCB and other sights are all nearby. It is also very easy to reach Plaça Espanya, Parc Güell and all the Gaudi marvels.
Raval is also very well connected in terms of metro and buses. Plaza Catalunya and Las Ramblas are five minutes away and you can go anywhere from there since you have three metro lines and tons of buses.
I'm sure you will enjoy my house and my neighborhood, and I'll do my best to make your stay comfortable and unforgettable.
Two very important rules in my house. Please do not smoke inside the flat. There is a window in the livingroom where you can stick your head out a bit and smoke. Second rule is, please mind the neighbors rest. My building is very quiet and my neighbors are mostly elder people who can be easily annoyed by noise. Out of that, I'm a very relaxed about my flat. I'm aware that people come here to have fun and enjoy themselves.
Hugo was very nice. The place was great and a great location for touring Barcelona. Would recommend.
Hugo fue muy amable con nosotros, atento a nuestras necesidades. El departamento esta muy bien ubicado y equipado tendiendo todo lo que necesitas para la estadía.
Hugo was very welcoming and helpful and let us leave our luggage in the flat the next day untill we had to catch our flight.
The flat was fully equipt and very central.
However, the room was tiny, only suitable for a one night stop over, there was no space available to move in the room or on either side of the bed which felt a bit uncomfertable.
Hugo was a very welcome and communicative host. We didn't speak much, but everything was clear and we had a very comfortable stay. Everything is as described. ¡Gracias, Hugo!
Hugo ist ein toller Gastgeber, er kümmert sich super um seine "Schäfchen".
Das Apartment ist ideal gelegen für jemanden der nicht mitten im Tourismus Trubel sein will, aber alles läßt sich von hier aus leicht zu Fuß erreichen. Natürlich ist auch eine Metrostation (Liceu) in direkter Nähe (2min zu Fuß). In unmittelbarer Umgebung gibt es genügend kleine Supermärkte und Bäckereien um sich mit allem Nötigen zu vertretbaren Preisen zu versorgen.
Hugo was a great host. He made our stay very pleasant thanks to a warm welcome and some good advice about the city.
I can strongly recommand staying at his place!
Hugo ist sehr freundlich. Er hat uns in der Wohnung empfangen und alles erklärt, was es zu wissen gab. Für Fragen war er immer erreichbar. Das Zimmer liegt super nah an der Rambla, für einen Städtetrip also perfekt.

Hello! My name's Hugo. I'm a guy from Mexico living in Barcelona for the last six years. I am an English teacher during the winter and a bartender during the summer.
I love travelling and meeting new people from different countries. I like Airbnb because it gives me the opportunity to share my place with people who like travelling and experiencing new cultures.
I love sports, specially jumping rope, boxing and football.
I also like cooking and watching movies from different countries. Some of my favorite movies are:
Bicho de sete cabeças, Requiem for a dream, Little miss Sunshine, La ley de herodes, etc.
