About This Listing
Welcome to my Art Design Loft!
You just happened to find something really special here so take some time and let this offer sink in for a second.
I offer you a complete loft with a capacity that winds up to 18 people (max) in plain Barcelona, right next to my art gallery. Did you ever try to find an appropiate accomodation for a big group? It is really hard to find suitable places and once you found something, it exceeds either your budget or is cut off from civilization. I got the solution for you and your group: my apartment!
Actually, you have several booking-options. You can either book the entire loft with 18 places to sleep or - if your group does not reach this number - just rent out a part of it. Whatever choice you make, I am flexible. But let me tell you some more about the place itself.
These 240m² will let you live a dream. 5 double bedrooms in the attic provide accomodation for 10 people. In 3 of those bedrooms there are another double sleeping couch, so there is place for another 6 people (though those couches are about 130 cm).
The 2 double sleeping couches in the spacious, but yet seperable living room allow another 4 persons to stay. In case you do not want to rent the entire loft, you simply seperate the attic from the basement so that you only would have to share the kitchen as each floor comes with a bathroom and an entrance to the seperable living room.
The living room is the heart of the loft. Imagine how laid back life could be relaxing in the living room, inviting your friends or having a big dinner.
Hitting the beach as well as the city is more than easy as you have every possible mean of transport close to the loft. The bus stop, as well as the Bicing and Navas metro station (L1), which goes directly from and to Plaça Catalunya- are located right in front of your door, just as the famous Sagrada Familia and Torre Agbar. If you plan to travel to Costa Brava you just hop on the train at Clot station which is only a stone's throw away.
Prices are easy:
You pay a fixed price for 8 people. If you are more persons, just add €45 per extra person (up to 18). The minimum price payable is set to 8 persons, but if you are a smaller group, don´t hesitate to ask my for availability.
That's it! Come and visit me here, you will not regret it.
I would like to ask you to show respect to my flat as if it was your own house. Let me know your arrival time as soon as you can so I can arrange for a smooth check-in. Once you left the airport give me a call or send me a message to confirm the time or communicate delays. Normally, you can check in from 17.00 pm, but if you arrive earlier, we will surely find a solution, at least for leaving your luggage.
Please respect the neighbours and don´t make noise after 23.00 o clock; and please switch off lights and aircon when leaving.
The keys will be handed over right at the apartment to make it easier for you.
Please note that I will have a person help with later check-ins (after 20.00 / 8pm). Here an additional fee of 20 EUR is to be paid in cash to the person doing the check-in. For arrivals after 24.00 /12pm the fee will be of 50 EUR.
Feel at home, but please keep in mind that there are neighbors around who deserve some sleep. To secure a peaceful living together, please keep the volume at a tolerable level, especially between 23pm and 8am. So if your night does not end at that time I would ask you to turn down the music or leave the flat and set off for the city. Should you get into trouble with the neighbors or the police because of noise nuisance we will only pay back half of the safety deposit. Ah, and I would really appreciate if you enjoy your smoke outside.
First of all, Elia is an amazing host. Due to the fact the apartment was needed for an art show he kindly arranged for a different place for us to stay. The place was amazing! Everything was so much better than we expected, and the service was great!
We really did love it there. I will definitely get in touch with Elia the next time I am going to Barcelona.
The apartment was spacious and it was very good size for 10 people. When we finally got to the place (taxi drivers had some difficulties to find the Place even if it's very well located close to Navas metro station) it was nice location with groceries and bars near By. Don't get worried when you arrive to the Place and it doesn't look very regular apartment from outside since it's loft apartment and built in former garage area? or something.
Downstairs there is an additional space which can't been seen on the photos. We enjoyed our stay but we had difficulties with booked and prepaid transport from the airport since they arrived at wrong time and we needed to take two taxis instead of prepaid transport. This service is external service and only booked through Elia but not his responsible so this was not his fault, just to avoid misunderstanding :) However, it was a bit uncomfortable moment but we got our money back and transfer to the airport was on time.
bonjour Elia, merci pour cette location, nous avons ete tres bien acceuilli, comme des amis et non comme des locataires, super loft nous etions comme a la maison, Elia a ete tres dispo pour nous, indication pour transport, visite...et merci pour le restau Napolitain (certes pas espagnole, mais on oublie pas nos origines)nous ne regretons pas le quartier tres calme, mais seulement a 2min du metro qui dessert le centre ville.Encore un grand merci a Elia et en esperant une autre location, merci
We travelled to Barcelona as a group of 16 girls on a hen party. We found it really hard to find accommodation which would allow us all to be together and literally cheered when we found this place! Elia was very helpful when I asked him questions and sent lots of additional information to help us plan our trip including transfers from the airport. When we arrived, the place was mostly clean and impressive. We were expecting the sofa beds to be raised but they were flat on the floor, not a big deal though! Elia popped in on us and helped us order dominos pizza before we hit the town. We only had one key on the first night which was logistically tricky for a large group but we were then given a second key to use. We found all of the neighbours to be really friendly and they helped us with various things. We collected all of our rubbish by the front door but weren't sure where it needed to be put to dispose of it. The house is a €10-€15 taxi away from La rambla and the beach club strip. We were fined €100 at the end of our stay for spillages on the downstairs sofas so be careful! We really enjoyed our trip and the house was perfect for what we needed!
It's was a pleasure spending time at Elia's art loft. He was welcoming and very helpful when asked about things to do in Barcelona! Airport transport was well organised and the apartment was in a good location with good transport links. Elia went above and beyond what would be expected from a host. He even invited my group to a local art exhibition. The art was beautiful. Any issues we had were dealt with promptly. I would definitely recommend Elia's art loft for big groups! I would love to go back again!
Fantastic short break for my 30th. Apartment was the perfect space to celebrate with friends and Elia made an excellent recommendation (and booking) for a restaurant which was a massive hit! We will definitely be back...
Amazing apartment!! Close to most things you need! Quiet area. What you see is what you get!
About the Host, Elia
I'm Elia and I moved from Rome to Barcelona in February 2012. Only a few months later I found a really wonderful place to work, live and host my friends!
You may be wondering what my work is...for me it is the best job in the world! I'm a sculptor! See you here! Cheers!
