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.

Please, read carefully here below, the paragraph I named "IMPORTANT".

The space

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.

------ IMPORTANT ---------------------------------------------------------------
* CHECKIN TIME: from 13.00 to 21.00 (I wake up at 5,30am and I cannot provide night checkins).
If your flight is landing in Barcelona betwenn 19.00 and 20.00 you may not make it (unless you take a taxi). If you land after 20.00 I will not be able to provide a checkin the same night.
If you land in Girona, you will make it only if you land before 18.00.

* As you can see from the photos THE ROOM IS 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).

* The flat is located in a central area, it means that we are not free of noises. If you are looking for a silent place, perhaps it could not fit to your expectations.

* Despite the little room you will be using ALL the apartment.
The KITCHEN is available from 7am to 22pm.

* You can bring water to your room but not food or other drinks.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

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.

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.

Roberto's place is impeccably done and class apart. His attention to detail is simply mind-blowing. Watching Roberto going about his daily life is like watching art. He is really warm, friendly and kind. He gave detailed maps, directions and recommendations which were really helpful and difficult to find anywhere else.

Roberto is a great host. Very friendly and nice... he offers u to use his while apartment, which made us feel like home. The very ONLY negative points are, that the room was even smaller then we tought :D and we could not sleep very well,cause it was very noisy. The noise was caused by the elevator at the floor and neighbours, who were leaving their apartments . But in spain it's comment, cause a lot of rooms are interior... But for a short city trip, I would go baxk to Robertos Apartement! Thank u Roberto!

A fantastic stay with Roberto! Roberto's place is really close to everywhere, you can easily get to the city center with metro (1 stop only!) and all the attractions. The place is very clean, and the room is cozy. We traveled with 2 big luggages but it wasn't a problem at all because Roberto let us put our luggages in the room next to our room, and there's a big shelf in the room that we could easily put our stuff on it. There's also 2 fans in the room, so it wasn't a problem at all to stay in the room during summer time! The bathroom is really really clean, and we also enjoyed using the kitchen as well as the living room! Roberto is a really welcoming host and well prepared to host travelers. He gave us clear instructions of how to get the the flat and the details of the neighborhood. When we arrived, he also gave us suggestions on where to go and recommendations of restaurants. We really enjoyed staying with Roberto and will definitely stay here again when we come to Barcelona next time!

We had a great stay in Roberto's apartment--the bed is comfortable, the location is perfect, and Roberto is a considerate and thorough host. While the room is small, he really does give full access to his huge apartment, and we had the place to ourselves quite a bit. Definitely recommend!

Roberto's place is great! He is super friendly and very accommodating, it's like staying with an old friend. (Who makes great tiramisu!) The room is as described in the post and it is small but you have access to the rest of the apartment which is really nice. The area is about 30min bus ride from the gothic quarter area but buses are frequent and convenient. The exiample area has tons of restaurants and bars so you don't have to travel far if you don't want to either.

Roberto's place is beyond words! You have to rent this room in his beautiful flat! The room is described small but honestly we had no problems with the size. Roberto has shelves in the room which was easy to organize our things. Also another room where we could store our large backpacks after we unpacked. It is walking distance to many places, we personally barely took the metro. But there is a metro near by if you prefer to use transit. The flat was perfect for our needs and Roberto made it feel like our own home. However the best part of renting this room from Roberto, is Roberto himself. He is an amazing host, beyond super host! He had everything organized, gave us details about the city, how to get to attractions, suggestions of restaurants and must see attractions, he even offered to do our laundry. He also helped us figure out our way to the airport the last day. We had a night where we just talked, and shared our thoughts. It's like staying with a friend. We actually wish we had more time to just sit around and talk with Roberto, but we were so busy doing things around the city. This flat is a special find and you don't need to look any further. Roberto is a gem. :)
