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.
Good location,very easy to find and 2 min walk to La rambla and Boqueria. Hugo was really helpful giving me advice on how to exploring the city. Room is not very big and enough for a comfortable bed. It was very kind of Hugo to give me a late check-out
Hugo was very kind. He carried my heavy baggage. The location was perfect. It's very close to plaza catalunya. The house was very clean.
Hugo hat uns direkt in der gemütlichen Wohnung empfangen und uns direkt mit den wichtigsten Infos ausgestattet und sofort angeboten, dass wir ihn jederzeit erreichen können, wenn wir Fragen etc. haben. Die Lage ist super und Hugo ein sehr, sehr sympathischer Gastgeber!
Very nice place. Excellent location Hugo is a pretty cool person. However, the street was very noisy (it was Saturday night).
Hugo was a wonderful host. He made us feel very welcome and showed us around the city, truly going above and beyond. The room was comfortable and had the necessary amenities, but Hugo was what made the trip so extraordinary for us.
The situation in Barcelona is excellent, in the historic center and near the place to go to the airport.
Moreover, Hugo is welcoming and it's very gainful to live here.
The only critic is the great difference between the two bedrooms.
We have had the smallest, which is divided in two spaces and with a little window. This piece is cold.
However, with this price and the situation, it's not a real problem for a week-end.
We had a great time at Barcelona and Hugo's Appartement was a good point to start our trips. It was always clean and comfortable. I would recommend it to all travellers.

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.
