It's the perfect base for exploring Catalonia and the rest of Spain!
Despite it being quiet, the moment you open the door, you are near it all!
Imagine the nicest people ever - and so these are your hosts! Inma and her husband are easygoing and responsive, they were extremely easy to communicate with, they dealt with our concerns promptly and kindly accommodated our odd checkout times.
Their flat is very well connected - just 5min walk from the metro, myriad of buses (including Airport bus) and there's a nightbus that stops right outside the door. It takes about 30min on foot to reach the centre if you prefer walking.
There's plenty of bakeries, fruit shops and supermarkets just around the corner, as well as Hostafrancs market full of fresh local produce.
About the room -
It's a cute two room shed at the back of the garden which gives you a lot more privacy than you'd be living inside the flat, and it's also very nice that you have your own shower. In the shed there's quite a lot of space and a big desk if you need to so some work. The bed is very comfy!
There were a few small minuses for us though:
it's quite dark inside as the garden is surrounded by neighbouring buildings and it gets a bit damp/stale if you don't air out (air condition) the shed.
Also going to the bathroom gets rather unpleasant if it starts raining, as it is in the main building and you have to cross the garden to reach it.
Nevertheless, we had a nice stay. It's very calm and quiet but you're never far away from all the action. I recommend this place if you want to feel like you went camping in the middle of the city!
A great host, a cool room and garden, a great town. Il's was a real pleasure to be at Inma's home. She's kind and cool ! Viva Barcelona and Inma !
I had a very comfortable and welcoming stay. Inma and Olivier are very nice and accommodating.
The room is clean, comfortable and private, and the exclusive shower and toilets are a great plus.
Overall an excellent first Airbnb experience!
Inma and her husband Olivier are the most hospitable nice people you'd likely to meet.
Multi lingual, educated, intelligent, engaging and with sense of humor. They open their house to the visitor making one feel at home from first moment. The location is superb – minutes from Pl. Espania - one of the most spectacular plazas in Barcelona. Groceries, organic market, at your door step, and the Metro or the bus connection to the airport, a 5 minute stroll away. We would highly recommend their place. Thanks again Inma for sharing and we look forward to seeing you again in the future.

Merveilleux séjour à Barcelone au cœur de la ville, avec des hôtes plus que charmants! Le jardin et la cabane sont un poumon dans la ville surtout par 35 degrés sous le soleil! Nous avons pu grâce à nos hôtes découvrir de jolis coins de Barcelone et visiter cette superbe ville. En bref, c'était super et je regrette déjà de ne plus y être :(
Un seul mot, parfait ! Nous avons passé trois jours fantastiques à Barcelone chez Inma et sa famille.
La cabane est conforme à la description et le lit est très confortable. C'est un havre de paix dans la ville. Les grands sites touristiques sont accessibles facilement et rapidement depuis le logement à pied ou en métro.
Inma et son mari sont des hôtes accueillants, chaleureux et respectueux, qui prennent le temps de discuter avec vous et qui n'hésites pas à vous aider si vous cherchez, par exemple, un supermarché proche. Nous n'oublierons pas l'ensaimada, un vrai régal ! Merci pour tout !
One word, perfect ! We spent three fantastic days in Barcelona with Inma and her family.
The wooden house was exactly as you can see it in the pictures and the double bed was very comfortable. A haven of peace in the city. You can easily and quickly get to all major tourist areas from the flat by foot or subway.
Inma and her husband were great hosts ! Welcoming, warm and respectful. They take time to chat with you and help you find for instance one supermarket nearby. We will remember the ensaimada, so delicious ! Thank you for everything !

The "cottage" of Inma in her garden is very cosy and comfortable, it's like a nest in the heart of Barcelona where you feel good to rest after a long and adventurous day in the city ! The garden and terrace are also great to hang out.
Inma and her family were very welcoming and helpful to give us some tips in the neighborhood.
We felt at home and we will for sure ask the cabin again when we'll be back in Barcelona !
I had a great time at Inma's place. Inma and her husband were great hosts and made me feel just like home from the very first minute. It was a real pleasure staying at her cozy efficiency which is fantastic for one person or a couple. The Air conditioning worked perfectly and it was very quiet as well. Next time when I'm back in town I will definitely stay at Inma's residence. Thank you for everything Inma!
We enjoyed our stay with Inma very much. She was very nice and helped us with everything we wanted to know. We liked our little home in the garden fittted with a (website hidden) was very cosy and quit. Bus and Metro were near the appartment as well as supermarket, shops and restaurants.
Great location and a very nice host! The wooden house was exactly as you see in the pictures. We loved the garden and fill like home!
Inma and her husband are wonderful - helpful and welcoming. We are very grateful for their help.
@Germans: Inma spricht sehr gut Deutsch. Die Räume und Garten strahlen eine sehr positive und gemütliche Atmosphäre aus.
