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.
Roberto is the best host I have ever met.
He was verrryyy kind and so nice.
He gave helps to us as much as he can.
I ll never forget my Barcelona trip in this Airbnb because of him.
There is no problem to get to this house because Roberto explained specifically.
If I have opportunity to go there, I will definitely choose it once more!
And finally, room was so clean and very beauriful. I will love his sense of decoration!!!
Staying at Roberto's flat has been our best AirB'n'B experience so far as he puts really big effort so his guests can feel like at home. It starts with receiving very detailed directions how to reach his flat, followed by a warm welcome, to his recommendations about Barcelona sights and places to eat which you can follow blindly. In general Roberto was really helpful and available throughout our stay and you can always ask him anything about Barcelona and nearby places. The flat is quite spacious and very clean and you can use almost all of it.
Roberto is a mind-blowing amazing host! The best host I have ever seen so far. Before arrival, he sent me detailed information and even map of recommended restaurants and bars in the neighbourhood. And the Bar & Restaurant Paris he recommended is soo great! Highly recommend that as well. His lovely place is clean and comfy. He gave us a tour around his house when we arrived. We can find everything we need in his house. Very convenient and we are feeling welcomed. He is very knowledgable about Barcelona. I will definitely stay at his place again if I visit Barcelona again in the future.
Staying with Roberto was a very positive experience. Not only is he a very personable man, he is knowledgable about Barcelona as a whole, sharing with you interesting information about things that may not be listed in tourist guidebooks. His personality oozes hospitality and respect. His neighborhood is good for exploring on foot. I would recommend him as a host to anyone that is planning a trip to Barcelona. Roberto, thank you for making my first trip to Barcelona a memorable event. Grazie Mille!!!!!!!!
Very helpful and organized.
Clean and cozy. Roberto makes you feel at home the moment you arrive at his place.
Easy access to every major attraction through public transportation.
You don't need to think for another place.
Roberto has been a very welcoming host. The apartment was clean, had everything you need, and is very well located. All in all, it has been a very pleasant and comfortable stay for me!
Roberto is an amazing host. His flat is beautiful, he is always on your side giving useful advices for visiting Barcelona. A friend that really care for you. Thanks to him we really had a good time there. The room itself is a little bit small, but thats not a problem because Roberto invites you to use the rest of the flat as well :-)
I am Italian, I live in Barcelona since 6 years and I feel really at home. I renovated and decorated the flat where I am living: I hope you will enjoy my creativity and vitality. I am a person with lot of energy and I love to help. I am glad you will come to Barcelona: you will fall in love as I did. :-) See you soon.
