The Space

Charming and comfortable apartment in the center of the old city of Barcelona, just minutes from main attractions such as La Rambla, the open-air market La Boqueria, and museums.

Located on the first storey of a historic building (160 years), but recently renovated, the apartment is able to sleep four; a private room in the back of the house and a separate bedroom in the front of the apartment with the bed on an elevated platform with stairs - both double beds adorned with sheets and pillows. For the bathroom, hand and bath towels at your disposal. Additionally all of the essentials of a modern home; kitchen includes a ceramic stove, refrigerator, dish washer, oven, microwave, espresso machine, toaster and a water filtration system.

Heating within the apartment during the cooler months, and ceiling fans for the warmer time of year. The front room opens up to the street with a small balcony for people watching or the breeze of the Mediterranean.

Television and Wifi enabled.

The apartment is located just 5 minutes from the most visited area of Barcelona, however it is tucked away on a pedestrian alley known for its Vintage clothing shops. Very conveniently located to 3 metro lines (Liceu L3, Universitat L1 y Sant Antoni L2). Other points of interest include cultural centers such as CCCB, MACBA, Filmoteca de Catalunya, or historical monuments such as Gaudi's Palau Güell, Monumento a Colón and the famous market La Boqueria where Ferran Adrià and the city's other greatest chefs do their shopping.

Within close proximity to the flat are many hip pubs, tapas bars and restaurants.

Barceloneta is the closest beach, 25 minutes walking, or 10 by bike. You have beach towels on the apartment at your disposal.

Upon arrival we are happy to direct you to some of our favorite spots in the city, or assist in whatever other recommendations you may desire regarding your stay in Barcelona.

  • Very good place to stay. Everything we need was in the flat. I can very recommend Davids flat.

  • My husband and I went to Barcelona for our honeymoon and stayed at David's house for 3 nights. The house was exactly the same as the photos on the website. It was even bigger than I had expected. There are two separate rooms, and has 3 beds in total. Everything in the house was very cozy and neat.

    The house is close to the Metro Liceu (5 to 7 mins by walking), and it is also the walking distance to Gothic quarter.

    David was one of the kindest person I have ever met in Barcelona, Spain. He gave us two maps of Barcelona and reccommendation list for food.

    If I have a chance to visit Barcelona, I would love to stay at his house again.

  • What a fun experience! David was a very affable host and took the time to make sure we were set for our first stay in Barcelona. The apartment was perfect-beautifully decorated, clean and well-kept. We loved the location - a bakery, grocery store and small shops were only steps away and were able to walk to all the main attractions. As two sisters traveling with our two teenage daughters, we never felt unsafe. We highly recommend this apartment and would love to stay here again.

  • We spent a nice week-end at David s apartment. The location is excellent. Close to La Rambla and Metro. We lived at the beat of the barceloneans. The apartment was clean, good beds and David provided help when 3 of 4 of our suitcases were lost from Paris. Thanks again David for all your help! I am already planning another stay in your apartment next year. Gracias! June 2014

  • We spent 4 full days in David's apartment and we don't have a bad word to say. It was an amazing place and it was perfectly placed for all the sites. I would recommend this place to anyone and will definitely stay there again when we return to Barcelona.

  • David's apartment was amazing- more than we expected. We were 3 friends and each of us had a comfortable bed and a privet space.
    David was very helpful and invited us into his privet home
    The street is very close to the Rambla- in the middle between the port and the Plasa Cataluna.
    The only thing is- the neighbors were a little loud at night.
    I really recommend this place!

  • We loved David's apartment. It was in an excellent area central to lots of shopping and restaurants. The little balcony was adorable, there was lots of hot water for showers, the beds were comfy and it had everything you need for a wonderful stay in Barcelona including a lovely living room. My 16 year old daughter loved her bed up in the loft. David was very helpful and always responded quickly to our questions. I would not hesitate to stay here again!

  • We stayed for two weeks in March. This apartment was very comfortable for the two of us and very well appointed. The area that the apartment is in appears a little rough, but we enjoyed being so close to everything. Other than having no view, we would recommend this apartment to anyone. A bread shop 20 yards away, a breakfast place a couple of hundred yards away for good coffee and churros (les 6 portes) and a great restaurant 100 yards away (O"Toxo). We found this a great place to explore Barcelona and found David to be very approachable and helpful. The TV signal is useless in the evening, but having a TV meant that we could watch movies off my tablet if we wanted to. Lovely place.

  • The apartment was very clean and convenient and the location very central. Beds were comfortable and we slept very well despite the street sounds! Kitchen was well equipped for our breakfasts and Wi-Fi was functioning well. The host was helpful and gave good instructions how to arrive from the airport. Check-in/check-out was flexible. All in all, we had a very nice spring vacation in the beautiful city. Thanks David!

    March 2014
  • The apartment is at a very good location, just a few minutes from la Rambla and there are lots of good restaurants and bars nearby. The apartment itself is nice, clean, beds are comfortable and all the handling with David went very smooth.
    In short, we really loved our stay and I would go back there anytime! Highly recommendable!

About
Hi! My name is David and I was born in Barcelona 43 years ago. I like to travel and try to go out to see the world when I have vacations. I work as technical arquitect, specialized on building restoration. My office and home is in the Raval neighbourhood. I live with my partner Eli (she's on the profile picture with me). If someone wants to know places to eat, drink, shopping in Barcelona only have to ask me. I like my city and I like to transmit my enthusiasm to others.
