I made a five week "round trip" of Spain. I started in Barcelona, and went on to Madrid, Sevilla, Granada, Valencia and finished back in Barcelona. Ilaria & Gianluca made me feel like long lost family reunited. It was very special, almost like coming home. Illaria knew about my travels and about my food explorations. She offered, and I accepted to make a Paella for me on my return. It was the best Paella of the trip. Incredibly warm and giving people. I love this couple.
Thank you Ilaria and Gianluca for making me feel so welcome.......it is very special to stay with some real Barcelona.ites rather than in an impersonal hotel.
Warm & friendly people that I want to bring home with me. Staying with them took me back to my college days when everything was fresh and life was full of possibilities. I hope you love cats & dogs because they have two cats and a dog who all want to be your best friend, the cats know how to open your door so they might share your bed, so be aware. The pets are all user friendly and made me think of my own dog waiting for my return. A great unexpected perk is if Illaria prepares a meal for you. I loved her cooking! It made my stay even more enjoyable. Would I stay there again? Absolutely! I have already booked my second stay in Barcelona with them.
Ilaria and Gianluca are very nice hosts, were relaxed and friendly from the very begging. Communication with them is smooth and easy. Location is great. Apartment and room are absolutely as said in listing.
If you're looking for a single room, right in the centre of the city, simple but cozy and practical this is it!

About the Host, Ilaria And Gianluca
Hello everybody! we are an Italian couple living in Barcelona for almost 6 years! We are in our 30s and live with our beautiful dog named Pimpa and 2 adorable cats, Cheerios and Sophie. We live in an attic right in the centre of Barcelona and we love this beautiful city.
Gianluca works in the human resources field while Ilaria works in an Italian restaurant as a cooker.
In our little spare time (we work a lot!!!) if we stay at home we like to watch movies, listen to the music and cooking! If we go out we love to meet our friends for lunch, visiting museums or go to some concerts. We also love nature and whenever we can we take a break from the city and go camping.
If you're a vintage lover Calle Riera Baixa is the street for you. It offers a lot of vintage shops.. you can buy dresses, hats, bags, jewelry or you can just have a walk in this peculiar area
The best Bocadillos in Raval! Very authentic atmosphere and good value for money

This is the local food market of the district. Very authentic with a lot of variety of food. Next to it there is also the clothes market.
If you love contemporary art then MACBA is a must. You would spend hours in his emblematic building discovering old and news artists
If you fancy old or not so old movies in their original language you might Like Filmoteca de Catalunya. Every month they have a different program so you can choose what to watch
