Centrally located in Barcelona's Sta Caterina Barrio - this is my studio space and functions for art making , exhibiting and studio exchanges and comfortably sleeps 3 people : one double bed with latex mattress & 1 good folding single bed. Much of the mezzanine space is made with recycled materials found on the street.Upstairs there's a long desk area and chairs, bedroom and bathroom. Downstairs there's a small kitchen set up and L shaped seating area and the large space to project videos in or make things. Super central and about an 8 minute walk to Plaza Catalunya.
There is good, fast wifi & there is also an air con unit in the bedroom (you can see in profile photos) for any really steamy night. There is also a large ceiling fan.
There's no sharing the space with the owner - it's for your own exclusive use, but it's worth bearing in mind that it's a Berlin style 'shop front' space & as such leads out directly onto the narrow street outside (ground level) .There is no traffic noise , as the street is too narrow for cars to pass, but you will be aware at times of people passing by outside,talking etc..... especially if the front window is open. I personally don't think it's a problem, but I mention it, just in case you think it might be for you. There are secure metal and reinforced glass doors with double locks and also there is a motorised metal shutter that is controlled by a remote control so that you can always control the light that enters and also safely shut down the space whenever you want. There are no noisy bars immediately beside space...... but 100 meters away you have the very cool BarLaLola where they make great cocktails and have fantastic (totally non-touristy) Thursday night Flamenco sessions.
Mercat de Santa Caterina is around the corner, as are numerous excellent places to eat. 15 - 20 minute walk to the beach, 4 minutes to the Catherdral, 10 to Las Ramblas, 3 minutes to La Palau de la Musica - it's very centrally located & absolutely everything is close.....

Ездили на 3 дня. Гостеприимная встреча хозяйки квартиры- Софии- очень порадовала- обяснила что, где и как устроено. Очень приветливая. Квартирка-студия оснащена всем необходимым, за исключением телевизора, посудомоечной машины, штопора)))) хотя за 3 дня мы и не думали о ТВ. Квартира находится в самом центре-пешком мы дошли за 2 минуты до Готического квартала (!!!),площади Каталони, знаменитого дома Гауди, торговой улицы под названием Рамбла, метро рядом и местный рынок с кучей вкусных разностей!!! В целом все оочень понравилось: и сами аппартаменты и расположение и сам город. РЕКОМЕНДУЕМ!!!!!
we spent a nice weekend in dj&sofia´s place. the location is very central, right in the middle of Born, that is a good place to hang out, (lots of bars, pubs and any kind of restaurants, both traditional and fusion cuisine there around) and at the same time to get to all the touristic attractions. it was a positive experience, we would definitely repeat it.
DJ was a very great host. From the first contact he was very friedly and respectful. The place is also perfect for 2 persons. For everyone who wants to enjoy a great trip or who wants to get creative this loft this is the right place. I hope to visit this place again.
Апартаменты полностью соответствуют описанию и фотографиям. Внутри очень уютно, чисто и комфортно. На кухне есть все необходимое для приготовления пищи (посуда, соковыжималка, турка для кофе, сковородки и т.д.). В ванной – полотенца, мыло, гель для душа, а теперь еще и фен. Если Вы хотите арендовать велосипеды, их можно припарковать на первом этаже, это очень удобно и безопасно. По приезду нас встречала корзина с очень вкусными фруктами. И полный холодильник апельсинов для утреннего фреша.
Рядом располагаются магазины со всем необходимым. Утром особенно приятно позавтракать свежим, еще горячим, багетом со сливочным маслом или джемом. Время работы магазинов примерно до 22:00. На следующей улице располагаются магазины по продажи сотовых телефонов, если Вы, например, захотите приобрести местную сим-карту («Vodafone» с безлимитным интернетом стоит всего 15 евро).
До рынка Mercat de Santa Caterina буквально 3 мин, до главной улицы Барселоны La Rambla прогулочным шагом, через Museu Diocesa de Barcelona, примерно 15-20 мин. Советую воспользоваться приложением «Maps with me PRO», поставив метку на пересечении улиц Carrer de Sant Pere Mitja и Carrer de l'Argenter Вы всегда найдете путь «домой».
Дэвид, огромное спасибо за Ваше гостеприимство и отзывчивость! Вы прекрасный собеседник с отменным чувством юмора. Спасибо, что всегда были на связи и выручали при любых ситуациях.
Thank you for being so fast and easy to communicate with, it was a last minute decision of ours to go. But all was very ok. Clean apartment, very welcoming welcome etc. You are a great host and when we come back to Barca we might see you again, we would like to try your other place too ;-)
Everything was great, David and his son were very nice and gave us a lot of tips for restaurants and activities
The location is great and the nights are quiet. You can definitly rest and sleep at night in this apartment,
Great market 2 min away to buy very good catalan food. People are very nice.
It was easier for us to find hosts who speak english because our level in spanish isn't so great
I would recommand this apartment for your trip to Barcelona
Maybe next time we will choose Dave's other apartement which seems even better than this one ( but wasn't for our student budget ;) )
Thanks again to David and George. Keep in touch
Flore & Antoine
Great apartment in a great location! DJ and Sofia (and their son, George) were all extremely to work with and very accommodating. We loved the apartment and were able to walk pretty much everywhere in the city from there. I would highly recommend to anyone! Great wifi, hot water, comfortable beds
Our stay at DJ & Sophia's place was nice. The location is great, right in the middle of everything: Nice bars, coffee- and breakfast places etc. We found the studio (which is the bottom part of the house) a little empty. There was not a real nice place to sit, like a comfortable chair or something. Only some foldable camping chairs and foldable table. But the bedroom was nice and cozy and the bathroom was good and clean. There was a little bit of noise from the streets and upstairs neighbors. Pretty noisy until 22.00 or 23.00, but I guess that was only to be expected in that part of town. All in all a nice stay!
While the area is very central and convenient, and the host was absolutely wonderful and helpful (giving us lots of recommendations and telling us about the area). Everything looked just like the photos and the apartment was very cool. The first night we thought the bathroom smelled a little weird, but nothing unbearable so we just let it go. Everything else was fine: a little noise from people walking up the stairs in the building at night, but most noise was finished by midnight. Hopefully the bathroom will be fixed and it won't be an issue for anyone.
Great location close to Pricesa, super friendly host, cool flat with an artistic touch to it. The host provided a projector and speakers so that we could watch some old movies in the evening, which was fantastic. Borne is a bohemian area with lots of cool bars and restaurants. Definitely recommended!
