About this listing
Right in the city center. All distances walkable (beach, museums,sites, shops, bars and restaurants). Get the true feeling of the old city from the our balcony. Big apartment and the most comfortable of the rooms, recently painted and took care.
Double room, very private, with a lovely balcony immersed in the old city center, a dreamy scenery. A double bed, a couch to hang out, and long workshop desk in case you need to do some work. Cozy, spacious and kind of cinematographic.
Located at the heart of El Born area, 1 minute walk from Santa María del Mar church, 1 minute walk from famous Picasso Museum, 2 minutes to The Cathedrall, Barrio Gótico and the Ciudadela Park and surrounded by many Metro stations, bus stops and public bicycle spots. Most of the of Barcelona´s best bars and restaurants are just downstairs indeed.
10 minutes walk or less to the beach!!
In a reformed and modern apartment with access to a very well equipped kitchen with everything you could think off or need, washing machine indeed. Two bathrooms (one small and other big) and a little Vietnamese table to enjoin breakfast or any other meal.
Located in a 19th century building in very good condition as most of the incredible buildings and architecture that characterizes our beloved neighborhood.
An auxiliary bathroom is just next to your room.
20 Mg internet wireless connection.
Good vibes, flows and better scenery.
Most importan rule is reading this, please.
Sharing the apartment with me and other fellow Airbnb guests, is very different of renting a hotel. Is a new thing we are all trying to adapt our self to this new set of circumstances. You knew in advance were you'd be going, otherwise you wouldn't be in one of my rooms. If something, sharing a room here is more like a roommate than hotel or family guests. Is quite hard for me, a single guy with huge apartment, to keep everything perfect with hotel standard all the time. Im not a Hotel, Motel a Hostal, im alone here and I have a life, other than my flat and Airbnb. So, I try to do maintenance all the time. I ask for a cleaning fee because that is a different job, very fiscal and hard, believe or not, and sometimes I need to ask people to help me with that money. It only covers the cleaning of your room after you left, it doesn't cover the maintenance of the place, the cleaning of the kitchen or the bathroom after you or your friends use it. As temporal roommate you could help by cleaning the kitchen and the bathroom after you used, and even give little care for the whole space while you are here. Don't hold your opinions about my place or your room or whatever circumstances you keep till the moment to review. I take those review very personally, after all I allowed you to be in my home, my space, my life. And because I try my best to keep everything in order and clean. Let me know what is it and I fix or repair it or whatever you tell me, help me out doing whatever you can for the place and, even more important, by telling me as sooner the better what you are not happy with. Is better that tha long faces and terrible reviews form both ends.
Check out must be coordinated at least the night before you departure.
Remember you can always reach me at my phone or Whats App, Telegram, Viber with the same phone number.
If you wish to contact me by email, I always prefer you use airbnb message board. It makes everything easier.
Towels and sheets are provided.
Very important too:
I live in an actual second floor but is called Primera that means first. Actual first floor is called in Spain Primera. So careful with this. Please don't knock on my neighbours doors if you are not sure is my door. My door number is 1-2, means first floor(but is a second) second door. It is an inter phone downstairs that you better ring before you come into the building. Remember 1-2.
Turn off the lights, heater, fan, when you leave the room. Save the planet.
Set the shower pressure no too hard, so you dont water the floor thus clean it up.
The room is to be left in the same condition as it was when initially checked in.
You will be responsible to maintain the standard of cleanliness and tidiness in the Room, Kitchen and the Bathroom.
Being respectful and friendly to others around you both in the apartment and neighbors.
You have full access to common spaces as kitchen, washing machine room and living room. As you do in your house clean them after use.
Alejandro gave us a warm welcome in his house. He showed us around the house and explained some things about the neighbourhood, El Born. We felt very welcome and the appartment was always clean. The descriptions on Airbnb were very accurate and the room was cozy with its little balcony. Alejandro was open to questions whenever you needed information and he took his time to answer them. El Born is a beautifull neighbourhood with lots of restaurants and shops. Besides that it's very close to both the beach and the city centre. We had a great time in Barcelona and we would definitely go back to Alejandro's house next time.
The room is in an excellent location. The room is functional (however lacks air conditioning, wifi also does not work) and the apartment is well decorated and furnished. However, maybe this was just because I appeared shy, but whenever I asked for advice on restaurants etc no advice was given and I felt like he felt we were trouble. He also left us a message when we checked out criticising us because on the last night we forgot to do dishes ( we left at 6am the next morning so were preoccupied!) so to summarise, great location and a host who isn't all that friendly.
Very nice flat. Alejandro was very welcoming and despite that its a room in an appartment, we felt like it was a private appartment !
Thanks for the stay
What more could I possibly add?
Alejandro is the most welcoming host. He stayed in contact with us up until our arrival and was always happy to make himself available to us throughout our visit.
I would highly recommend staying here for the location alone; you will never run out of quality restaurants and charming bars to discover within the old winding streets of Born (be sure to check out 'Guzzo' for both your hunger and your thirst). The heart of the Gothic Quarter is also a mere 5 minute walk.
The apartment itself is splendid and has plenty of character. Alejandro is very attentive in keeping the apartment maintained for his guests.
All in all, a wonderful holiday made all the more memorable by a warm and humble host.
Thank you, Alejandro :)
Прекрасное расположение квартиры - одинаково близко как до пляжа, так и до основных достопримечательностей, рядом с метро. Ночью довольно тихо, т.к. окна выходят на маленькую улочку в стороне от основных гуляний туристов. В самой квартире уютно, хозяина Alejandro видели не часто, остальные соседи так же вели себя тихо, поэтому чувствовали себя свободно и комфортно. В квартире все просто, но достаточно чисто, мы часто обедали дома, т.к. квартира находится в центре и легко было зайти днем. В целом от проживания здесь только положительные впечатления, рекомендую.
Alejandro was very nice and welcomed us with open hands. He showed us our room, kitchen and toillets and explained some facts and provide some interesting informations about Barcelona. During our staying in the room we didnt see him quite often, so we really enjoy full privacy. Location is very good, lots of good bars and restaurants near. I recommend you to visit Barcelona and stay at Alejandros place.
Neighbourhood is excellent. We really felt at home. Alejandro is a nice host.
