About this listing
Centrally located, beautiful views, comfortable home, and friendly atmosphere. Feel at home in our our house;)
Our centrally located, clean and comfortable Penthouse apartment can be your home away from home for your Barcelona visit. So easy to reach, only a 2 minute walk from Placa Espanya, (where you will find the great shopping area of “Las Arenas), which is a hub for buses and metro to any and everywhere! (Including the airport!)
You will sleep serenely and comfortably in your private room where the prevailing Sea-Breezes maintain a pleasant temperature, and in the morning wake to a complimentary breakfast (coffee or tea, croissant, fruit and yoghurt) while enjoying views of the magnificent Montjuic and the palatial structure of the Catalan Museum of Art. During warm weather, it is wonderful to have breakfast outside in our Terrace Garden.
The apartment consists of 3 bedrooms, one of which is yours, the other belongs to Sarah, Rodrigo, and Fernando (your hosts), a bathroom, complete kitchen, (at your disposal), and a large living room, (also at your disposal), which opens onto a 40M Sq. Terrace; a wonderful place for you to sit and relax or sun bathe; we encourage you to use and enjoy these communal areas as if they were your own.
Our apartment is located in a quiet, safe, family oriented neighborhood and offers supermarket (100 meters from apartment), and what must be the best delicatessen in all of Barcelona, directly out our front door, where you can buy traditional “jamon Iberico”, Spanish sausages and choose from a generous selection of decadent wines and cheeses.
You will be within walking distance to not only Montjuic, with the extensive Catalan Art Museum, and Placa Espanya, but also within walking distance are; Poble Espanyol, Museum of Miro, the Castle and most importantly we are only one block from the convention area, should you be in Barcelona for a trade show.

One word: AMAZING! Sarah and Ricardo are a amazing couple, so friendly and funny. Enjoyed their company so much! Their appartement is amazing, good location close to Montjuic. The terrace is the best place to be, spend nearly the most of the time of our stay out there on the terrace ;) Strongly, highly recommended. Oh yeah, I forgot, Barcelona is amazing as well.
Sarah and her friend were really nice. Sarah was very helpfull and the terrace was great!
My stay at >>Central Room with TERRACE was just as I hoped it to be. A student-like trio welcomed me with great authentic cordiality and hospitality. Sarah, Rodrigo and Fernando shared their apartment in an uncomparably easy going way with me. Sarah was the one who organized all the necessities: from communication, sms-guidance to the flat after arrival, wifi credentials/keys handover, recommendations (where what when to do, eat, see, buy) to a lovely handwritten goodbye message at the day of my departure, she was just a formidable "landlady" who made me feel safe and well cared about. Therefore, I felt very comfortable and like a "part-time flatmate" from the very beginning. I enjoyed spending my time and exchanging thoughts about the topics of (daily) life with all of them very much. The apartment -- as well as my room -- is simple, useful, and expresses a certain bohemian, artistic character. It provided everything I needed from the material point of view.
Thanks a lot once again, guys. See you next time when I'm going to visit BCN,
פולי ואני חרשנו את ברצלונה, התגוררנו אצל שרה ורודריגו במרכז העיר חמש דקות מפלזה איספניה ועדיין ברחוב שקט סימפטי מאד בחדר קצת קטן אבל בדירה עם מרפסת נפלאה. המארחים מקסימים לא מעיקים ועדיין עוזרים, ארוחת בוקר ספרדית אותה שידרגנו לישראלית... בקיצור מומלץ
I stayed with Rodrigo for the month of September 2013. He and Sarah are very welcoming and helpful and I had full use of my room, living room, kitchen and bath.
The apartment has a great location near placa Espanya, decent size double bed room, nice size and functional kitchen and decent bathroom. It has a very large and very nice terrace. I will stay there again during future trips and recommend it to all.
sarah wasnt at home when we came, but everthing was Perfect organized!
Great flat, perfect located, clean.... all in all Perfect!
we would recommend you the room for a Trip in Barcelona :-)!
sarah was very helpful via Email and we had a Great experience !
This is our first Airbnb experience and we enjoyed very much staying with Sarah and Rodrigo in their beautiful apartment.
It's ideal located very close to plaza espanya as well to mont juic with palau national and parc olympic.
The apartment is very comfortable and it's great pleasure sitting on the spacious terrace on the roof.
Sarah and Rodrigo are very friendly and uncomplicated hosts.
Rodrigo was always available to help with everything related to our stay. Although we didn't meet Sarah in person she helps us much via email getting in contact, finding the location after our arrival at Barcelona and provided us with well selected tips for sightseeing, bars and restaurants.
We really had the best time and recommend very highly. Thank you Sarah and Rodrigo!

About the Host, Sarah
There is very little that I don't love about this city. I came as a study abroad student and haven't looked back since.
It's impossible to start my day without a café con leche and a croissant. I am always on the lookout for a fabulous restaurant or bottle of wine. I love discovering hidden gems all over the city. Live concerts during the summer are a wonderful treat for me. Drooling, as I walk through this beautiful city is a common occurrence. I am never unimpressed by the beauty.
As your hosts (along with my partner Rodrigo) we will do our best to make sure you feel at home. We are easy going and are here to help you if you need it or simply let you be on your way if you like.
