About This Listing
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.
From Mar 1 - May 31, 2015 the minimum stay is 1 night.
Hugo est un très bon hôte! Il a prit le temps de nous informer sur la ville dès notre arrivé :) L'appartement était très beau et très propre. Le ménage etait fait tous les jours environ et plusieurs commodités sont disponibles (laveuse, cuisinette et micro-onde). L'appartement est situé en plein centre-ville,ce qui nous permettait de nous rendre à la plupart des attraits à pied. Nous pouvions d'ailleurs nous rendre sur la fameuse rue "La Rambla" à pied aussi. Le wifi fonctionnait bien aussi. Nous recommandons cet endroit à tous.
Merci Hugo :)
Hugo was a lovely host! We almost got lost along the street, but he spotted us with his eagle eyes and saved us! :-) The house was nicely furnished and in a perfect location. We barely took the metro as we could walk everywhere!
Hugo was great host. The flat was in a nice location! Hugo was very very kind and helpful. I really want to travel to Barcelona again and then want stay again. Thank you Hugo; )
Hugo war ein sehr freundlicher und hilfsbereiter Gastgeber. Er hat regelmäßig nach dem Rechten gesehen und hat immer gefragt ob er etwas für uns tun kann.
Die Wohnung ist super zentral gelegen, sodass man von dort aus alles sehr gut erreichen und erkunden kann.
Gerade gegen Abend dann aber auch etwas lauter , uns hat es nicht gestört, da wir nicht so empfindlich sind was das angeht und konnten dennoch gut schlafen.
Die Wohnung ist in einem zufrieden stellenden Zustand, der Boden wurde wohl schon etwas länger nicht geputzt aber ansonsten was das Bad & alles andere sauber. Unser Bett war frisch bezogen und wir haben uns wohl gefühlt!
Wir bedanken uns bei Hugo für die nette Unterkunft :) THANK YOU !

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.

Bicho de sete cabeças, Requiem for a dream, Little miss Sunshine, La ley de herodes, etc.
