The Space

Newly Painted!. 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.

  • This appartment is perfectly located in the center of the awesome El Born area, with the subway nearby and lots of nice small streets to wander around. The house is clean and if you don't mind sharing the kitchen and bathroom, this house is perfect!

  • Late arrival but accommodating host was there to meet us at a very late hour! Lovely room with a balcony and tons of space to spread out. Met some great other travellers as this place has several rooms, so it's a great way to meet people. Thanks for the great stay!

  • This apartment is located on a private non-drivable street in the heart of El Born a couple of blocks from the Cathedral. Very charming and perfectly located Alejandro is very nice and interesting. The room was immaculate and had a nice breeze. I would definitely stay here again.

  • Alejandro was super friendly and accommodating! When we arrived he did an awesome job of giving us a locals perspective on things to do and see. The apartment is perfect and in one of the coolest locations. It was probably my favorite place we stayed on my month long stay in Europe using AirBnB. If I'm lucky enough to see Barcelona again and Alejendro's place is still listed, I would love to stay again.

  • Quiet street in a great lively neighborhood. Very convenient metro access and a good location to both the city center and the beach.

  • We absolutely loved staying with Alejandro in this adorable room in the El Born district of Barcelona. It was in the middle of a tiny ally surrounded by Gothic architecture, lively plazas, tapas bars and evening paseos. If you want to experience real old Barcelona stay here. It is safe, clean, and feels like staying with an old friend. True, it isn't fancy and if you're the kind of person who likes to stay somewhere new with fancy amenities then you may prefer a hotel, but if you want a place where you can feel like part of the life of this amazing city, then stay here. We loved hearing the lively streets into the night, smelling the paella from the restaurant across the alley and waking up with the local bakeries all around us. Alejandro made us feel like we were temporarily home.

  • Alejandro was very helpful and we felt very comfortable at his appartment which was down a little laneway close to the cathedral, museums and cafes and transport.Wifi was also very useful. There are quite a few steep narrow steps getting to his floor but all ok if you are relatively fit. Could not have had a more authentic experience, so easy to image life back through the ages.

  • Would not recommend this not charming room. This place is dirty the floors and every thing in the kitchen were filthy. Some other tenant came in and cleaned some of the kitchen as they wanted to cook. Our sheets had several holes and the walls needed a clean. Absolutely disgraceful considering we where charged on booking an extra $45 for cleaning the room. He lives in the apartment and rents out 3 rooms surely he can spend some money and get the filth removed from the floors, tea towels, sink, etc. The laundry consists of a washing machine on a tiny balcony. The balcony and top of the machine is piled high with sheets and other stuff. Unbelievable sight. We took photos to try and depict how everything in the kitchen was layered with grime. A sight for sore eyes. We were stuck outside the station for an hour trying to contact Alejandro eventually he answered and said his phone was out of power. We had given him prior notice of our time of arrival. One great plus is the position. Alejandro must get the apartment cleaned, it is a health hazard to anyone who stays.

  • Great location, great host. Clean and comfortable. A bit noisy if the windows open. Voices of people walking below echo in the alley. Otherwise , highly recommend Alejandro's place

  • Alejandro's apartment was all as described an awesome location in the gothic quarter with main attractions all in walking distance. The room was spacious and clean and fronted a street with restaurant below. Alejandro provided basic tea/ coffee and condimonts that made eating in easy and any questions or needs were willingly attended too.
