About this listing
Welcome to my flat and welcome to the Eixample: the historical district constructed in the 19th and early 20th centuries and designed by the visionary, pioneering Ildefons Cerdà. We are still in the center but away from the crowded touristic area.
You can see the typical Eixample flat: the long corridor, the high roof with original decoration, the old tiles and the typical doors...
I am Italian and since I moved to the magic Barcelona I have been living in this hundred year old building flat in the Eixample district.
The old-fashion style of the flat, the high roofs, the typical long corridor, the bright double sitting room and the old decorated tiles on the floor will make you go back in time, to the year when Barcelona was hosting the International Exhibition on 1929.
The Eixample area is in the city centre but it is not in the touristic crowed area. You will be enjoying the lovely facades of the building, a wide choice of bars and restaurants with their terraces. From my flat you can have a nice and romantic walk towards Plaza Cataluña (25 minutes) passing through the Gaudi's houses (the Pedrera and the Batlló) and the elegant & fancy Paseo the Gracia.
The price of the room is per night (plus the 12% Airbnb commission). If you are in two, you will be sharing the amount.
As you can see from the photos the room is quite LITTLE: it's 200 cm long and 230 cm wide. There is a futon bed (200 cm long, 140 cm wide, and 30 cm deep).
Despite the little room you will be using ALL the apartment, kitchen included of course. You will have free mineral water and free tea/coffee/infusions at your disposal. You will have your own keys.
I rent just one room: it means that you will be my only guests.
It will be my pleasure to answer to any question.
Wherever you stay, have an amazing stay in Barcelona: you will fall in love with this magic city as I did, as I am still!

Interaction with Guests
In the morning (monday to friday) I go to work at 6.00 am (until 13.00) so when you wake up you will be the owners.
In my area you will find plenty of supermakets (even some 24 hours and a bio-market), fresh fruit shops, a bakery open also on Sunday and one of the best gelaterias in town.
Three metro stations are within reach:
- L5 "Hospital Clinic" in 5 minutes
- L6 & L7 "Provença" in 7 minutes
- L3 & L5 "Diagonal" in 10 minutes.
Plaza Cataluña and Ramblas are at one metro stop with L6 or L7 line, or two metro stops with L3 line.
At night 3 night bus lines reach my street: N3, N7 and N8 (5 stops from Plaza Cataluña). They run every 20 minutes.
I am not close to the beach: you can go to the beach with the bus 64 (in about 40 minutes)
The flat is no smoking: there is a balcony where it is possible to smoke.
This is the lounge area: the two sofas will be waiting for you after a lovely walking ride around the city
