About This Listing
A room for rent in the center of the energetic Raval of Barcelona. 5 minutes walk to the Ramblas, La Boqueria Market, Macba Museum, the Gotic quarter and a few minutes more to the Born, Montjuic, the port and beaches of Barcelona.
The room comes with the exclusive use of one bathroom and obviously free use of the kitchen with dishwasher and the washing machine. There is also a roof terrace with fantastic views of Barcelona.
It is also possible to rent the two rooms if you are more people coming or just fancy having the whole apartment to yourself, please enquire about a discounted rate which we might be able to offer in some seasons.
There is also free wifi, flatscreen TV and music with 100's of CDs, plus a few films available, and an extensive list of books in several languages.
A pick-up service from the airport/train station can be arranged for a small fee, which always comes in handy if arriving at funny times, there is also parking less than 2 minutes walk - however this is not cheap.
Please contact us for availibility and more info.
We do not have house rules as such, however we expect people to use their common sense while here - we believe it is important that we all feel at ease with each other, and that our guests enjoy their stay in Barcelona. Remember as we rent out two rooms there might be other guests staying. If unsure always better to ask ;-)
Jesper was a nice guy and showed up on time to let us into the apartment. We stayed in the room with the ensuite bathroom, and it was great! Quiet and clean, and the apartment was pretty roomy. As a bookworm, I loved how many books were available in the living room.
The apartment does have wifi, but I was only able to get reception by the front door. The room with the ensuite is the furthest away from the front door, so I couldn't get any wifi reception in my room.
The apartment was convenient walking distance to some of the sights, as well as 2 different train stations for the sights further away. However, the neighborhood felt a bit unsafe in areas.
Wonderful location for the independent traveler with comfortable bed, sitting room, large bathroom, and efficient elevator. City and apartment complex noise into the night. Best for good sleepers when the windows are open! If unfamiliar with Spanish apartment numbering system, ask for more specific directions before coming or count on using your phone when close. Jesper was very welcoming and gave us a quick lowdown of how things worked. He lives in a different building and we didn't see him again though we could have called him with questions. Very clean apartment with kitchen facilities, coffee and a few basics. The second bedroom and bath are across the sitting room from where we stayed. The bedroom doors do not have locks but the other quests were very nice and we left passports in the room with no problem.
Jesper es un gran anfitrion! y su departamento no solo esta muy bien ubicado sino que es muy bonito.
Jesper se ocupo de buscarnos por el barrio ya que estabamos perdidos=).
Nos dio varios tips y nos dejo desayuno disponible para las mananas!.
Lo recomiendo y sin duda repetiria!!
I and my wife stayed in Jesper's place in Barcelona for 2 nights last week..
Very good location indeed, only 10-15 minutes walking from Plaza Catalunya, where the AeroBus from El Prat Airport stop. Very close to Liceu Metro Station, La Boqueria Market and lots of dining places.
Jesper is a very nice person and very helpful, we met him once, when he passed over the key, and explained everything about the house and the city. We can reach him by email easily, since my phone couldn't do roaming calls. That is quite easy to catch free wifi at Barcelona.
The apartment unit itself is marvelous, very clean..Jesper provides everything that we need. Although located at 3rd floor, but there's an elevator, so we didn't meet any trouble of carrying our heavy luggages..We also have access to the rooftop terrace that we can enjoy the skyline of Barcelona City while we had our breakfast.
Thanks a lot for the place and your warm welcome Jesper :)

Jesper was a great host. He was very friendly, helpful and available at his mobile phone at all times. The room and the private bathroom were modern and very clean. There was also a cosy living room (with a lot of interesting books) and a roof terras. The location is very central. We really enjoyed our stay and would definitely recommend it. Thanks a lot Jesper!!! (Christophe & Nina)
We had an amazing time staying at Jespers - he met us at the airport and drove us to the apartment.
Jesper is friendly, welcoming, and had lots of great tips on places to go/eat/see.
The apartment was exactly as shown in the photos on his profile; clean, tidy, and although we were sharing the place with another couple, very private.
Jesper made himself very available to us with his mobile number - even at 2am on the first morning when we were lost and couldn't find our way home!
Would definitely recommend both Jesper and his property 'The Way We Live'.
Jesper was a fantastic host. Even though we were a bit late arriving he was waiting for us on the street to bring us to the accomodation. The accomodation itself was perfect, comfortable and very well equipped. Jesper was always extremely prompt replying to emails and super helpful with advice. He gave us a recommendation for an excellent restauraunt nearby, La Bibliotheque, where we had a delicious meal for great value! Thanks Jesper! I would have no hesitations staying here again or recommending this place to friends.
