Sunny flat in centre near beach

Apartment - Entire home/apt · Carrer Gombau, Barcelona, Catalonia 08003, Spain

The Space

This flat is comprised of a very large, 40m2 living/dining room with a breakfast galleria and a balcony. Full of sun all day long, it's quiet and light and perfect for meals and relaxing with a glass of wine in the afternoon. In addition to this space, there is a large open kitchen which is fully equipped, and a bathroom with bath and shower and an extra toilet.

There is a large quiet room with a king size bed, and a slightly smaller room with double bed. The flat would be ideal for two couples or a family.

This beautiful sunny apartment is situated 2 minutes from Barcelona's Cathedral. In a quiet area right in the historic centre of Barcelona, just 10 minutes walk to the city's beaches and a stone's throw from Barcelona's most historic monuments, museums and art galleries, the apartment is an ideal place from which to explore Barcelona.

The neighbourhood, El Born, is the best place to eat the fantastic local cuisine and explore boutique shopping, gourmet restaurants and charming pavement cafes.

Situated in a quiet, relaxed neighbourhood the flat is right next to one of Barcelona's most beautiful food markets - Mercat Santa Catarina, and 2 minutes from the closest metro stations.

If you're coming to visit our city for a couple of nights, or for a longer stay, I think you'll really enjoy the ambiance and location of my apartment. It's very sunny, clean and peaceful.

While visiting the apartment, I am happy to help you with anything you might need to know about the city. I'm an English guy living and working in Barcelona and I love the city. I always really enjoy showing people around and recommending hidden treasures I've discovered over the years. I also know what it's like to visit a city and enjoy the balance of a good host who's not over bearing! I believe that the beauty of airbnb is avoiding the generic hotel experience but still having the chance to discover the city on your own terms. For me that's an important balance and I'm happy to help people with their stay here as much or as little as they like.

You'll be welcomed with cold drinks, clean towels and a smile. See you soon!

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Location, location location. Adam's apt has it. Close by most attractions and nightlife .Large and comfortable space. Our only complaint is make sure Adam explains the hot water pilot light. It went out 3 times in 1 week and we were without hot water for 2 days.

  • A stay in Adam's apartment is a stay in the real Barcelona. The apartment is excellent, clean and spacious and has all you need to venture out in the city. We really enjoyed our stay and we hope to have the apartment for a next time.

  • We had a great time in Adams apartment! It is a lovely apartment, very cozy and close to many sightseeings. During our stay Adam was abroad, but everything was well organized. I will definitely recommend this apartment!

  • This very typical Spanish apartment is located very convenient to many tourist attractions and the tour bus stop. We very much enjoyed sitting out on the back balcony in the sunshine over coffee in the morning. The host was most helpful in allowing one member of our party to check in early. And when the water heater went out, he arrived to fix it within minutes of learning about the problem. The downside of our convenient location was hearing lots of street noise at night and daycare kids in the late afternoon.

  • What a great stay! Adam is a charming host with a very cool apartment in a fabulous location. The photos provided onsite don't do justice to the apartment itself. Lots of space and light, clean and cool with lovely pics on the walls, traditional tiled floors and high ceilings and vintage elements all around. Not forgetting the cute balcony, a great little sun trap. We were very comfortable and found it hard to leave the place. It was close to everything you would want to see in Barca from eating out, shopping, museums, parks, the zoo, the beach etc. My husband, myself and my two sons (7 and 10 years old) were warmly welcomed by Adam who gave us juice upon our arrival and made sure we had a working coffee machine AND had a bottle of cava chilling in the fridge! There is a really good wifi connection which meant our kids played games in the morning and we got some much needed lie ins, Bless you, Adam. I would not hesitate to recommend the apartment to friends and family and would definitely return. A perfect place for 4 people with a great vibe. The whole process of finding and staying in Adam's apartment was very easy and worth every penny.

  • Great from start to finish. Adam was a great and helpful correspondent. He was away in Japan but had a very nice friend check us in. Even supplied cava, fruit, milk and juice - very welcome after a long trip from Brazil. The location is perfect. 100 metres from the amazing Mercado Santa Catarina with it's wonderful restaurant. Within walking distance to the Ramblas and the beach. metro station very close by. Do not miss the wonderful lunch at El Atril nearby - top class fresh food at a low low price. Also the cocktails and fried calamares at Al Sur. The apartment itself is simple but comfortable and totally adequate to our needs. Good wifi. It has a lift which is not that common in the old city. Will we stay there next year? - absolutely yes!

  • Ich war mit 3 Freundinnen in der Zeit vom 22.-27.03. in Barcelona und die Zeit in Adam's Wohnung war einfach nur toll. Die Zimmer sind alle wunderschön und mit Bedacht und viel Geschmack eingerichtet. Es handelt sich zwar um einen Altbau und an der ein oder anderen Ecke sieht man das auch, aber das schränkt den Besuch überhaupt nicht ein. Die Lage ist top, Einkaufs- und Weggehmöglichkeiten sind alle fußläufig zu erreichen. Wir würden sein Apartment jederzeit wieder buchen!

I am from the UK but I have lived in different places adventuring and working and making things for quite a while now. I love living in Barcelona and welcoming people. I also like to travel and encounter people in new or familiar places to make life more interesting. I have a really great dog, but not all the time. I like making things, reading things, listening to things and also watching things.
