The Eixample area of Barcelona is home to most of Barcelona’s Modernist Architecture. The area abounds with colourful façades, quality restaurants and café-bars, shady terraces and designer clothes shops. This area is where you will find the city’s masterpieces La Pedrera, Casa Batlló. The Eixample is characterized by long straight streets, a strict grid pattern crossed by wide avenues, and square blocks with chamfered corners (named illes in Catalan, manzanas in Spanish). This was a visionary, pioneering design by Ildefons Cerdà, who considered traffic and transport along with sunlight and ventilation in coming up with his characteristic octagonal blocks, where the streets broaden at every intersection making for greater visibility, better ventilation and (today) some short-stay parking space.

  • Antonio's apartment is exactly like the pictures - the room is sunny and beautiful, and the private terrace with the sink is a major bonus. The bed was super comfortable and I loved waking up to the giant sunny windows. Despite the road itself being fairly busy, the room is off an inner, very quiet courtyard.

    The neighborhood is exactly what I was looking for - close enough to the hustle that I could hike in or take a short train ride, far enough away to have smaller shops and restaurants. I walked around or came home at all hours and the neighborhood felt completely safe to me as a solo traveler.

    I was running around like the mega-tourist I am, so I didn't actually get to speak to Antonio much, but he was very kind and accommodating the few times we ran into each other. If I find myself in Barcelona I will definitely make this my first choice!

  • Antonio was a great host. He was there to greet us even though we were very late getting in, and he gave us several late-night dinner recommendations. His flat is in a fantastic location, the bedroom is very private with its own sink and lounging area. The bed is large and comfortable. You must share a bathroom with Antonio but this was never a problem. Antonio was always available to answer questions, but we felt like we had our own space. Very happy with our stay in Barcelona!!

  • This room was one of our favourite rentals through Airbnb! It's perfect for 3 people; very spacious, clean, neat, and has its own terrace. The location is good, not directly in the city centre but still central to the main attractions (e.g. Guell Park, La sagrada familia, La rambla). Antonio is a great host, he's so friendly and welcoming! He provides cereal and tea for breakfast and there are also resources (maps, brochures, etc.) in the room for you to use.

  • Well, I was a nighmarish guest. First I was late, then I was noisy in the morning, noisy late in the evening, then late again, then my friends was feeling sick then I was late. Through it all, Antonio has never wavered from being the perfect host, smiling, patient, helping, always at the ready to sort us out and making it all real easy. What a cool airbnb host. Thanks a lot Antonio!
    And no, I did not do it on purpose, it's all Barcelona's fault. And I LOVE this city.

  • The room itself was very nice, large bright, and quiet, and the apartment is in an excellent location. However, you can't really control the brightness, since the curtains are all sheer. We arrived in Barcelona after a long flight and wanted to sleep a bit, but found it difficult with the light. Apparently the large doors to the terrace do close, but I was unalbe to move them easily, and didn't want to force them.

    We met Antonio at the check-in to get the keys, but he had to leave right away so we didn’t get a proper walk-through and we never saw him again until the night before we left.

    The door to the room is directly beside the kitchen, and the door has opaque glass panels and a sheer curtain, so it does not offer much privacy and we were often disturbed (by both light and noise) by the other people living there going to the kitchen late in the evenings. This was our biggest issue with this unit.

    The bathroom was okay, but the shower head was broken, so you had to hold it in your hand to shower. It's also the only bathroom for the entire unit, so it's being shared with numerous other people.

    Although breakfast was supposed to be included, we had no idea what food belonged to whom, since there were 3 other people living there.

    The pictures of the kitchen make it look much better than it was. We did not find it very clean, aside from being poorly constructed. The oven, in particular, was very bad – layers of baked food on the bottom. The grill was clearly not made for that oven. I wouldn’t plan on doing much cooking there.

    You pay for the location, and for a nice bedroom, but the light and noise from the kitchen were a significant factor in getting a good nights sleep for us.

    Response from Antonio:

    :( Clearly this review is meant to harm my reputation as a host.
    You, my future guests, please can read the other reviews and see that no one complained about me or this place.
    It saddens me that there are people like this, even lying.
    Maybe you (Margo) need to know that my only source of income now is Airbnb and reviews like this, can do much harm. Thanks

  • Antonio was a great host and we enjoyed our stay immensely. He has a very nice room in a convenient neighborhood. There is also a 24hr market just down the street which was nice to have. We love Barcelona and want to return in the future.

  • Big room, sunny and quiet, pefect for a stay for few days
    The flat is close to Passaje de Gracia, so that is easy to take the metro and easy to connect with the airport.

  • Staying at Antonio's was our first airbnb experience and it couldn't have been better! The apartment was centrally located in a quiet neighbourhood in the centre of Barcelona and on the inside it looked great. the room was spacious, clean and it even had ornaments on the ceiling. There was always free coffee, cornflakes and other cereals for us to use and if we needed Antonio for advice or help, we contacted him through whatsapp and he responded immediately. Thank you very much Antonio!

  • We've had a wonderful time at Antonio's place! The room is clean, comfy and really well located!
    Antonio was a great host, waiting for us at his place, giving us all the information we needed and helping me receiving my baggage lost during our flight (!!!).
    The place fits very well for 3 persons.
    Thank you again, Antonio!
