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
Роберто очень добрый и дружелюбный хозяин.Он приготовил массу распечаток с нужной информацией, как добраться до основных достопримечательностей, о ресторанчиках и ближайших магазинах. Небольшая спальня компенсировалась столовой и гостиной. В день нашего отъезда новых гостей не было и Роберто не торопил нас с отъездом.
Дом расположен примерно в 15 минутах от площади Каталонии.Рядом станции метро разных линий. Все понравилось, большое спасибо.
Roberto is a great host. He prepared for me a very detailed description how to get to his place with all the tips regarding tickets, metro, and so on. I have received from him also lots of restaurant and places to go tips.
The room is small, but you may use the whole apartment, so it does not matters, especially if you spend the whole day on a sightseeing. The bathroom is nice, you get the fresh towels.
We did not have many occasions to see each other as I was all days out and Roberto leaves early for work. But I can say, he is a very friendly and helpful person.
The neighborhood is great, lots of bakeries and tapas bars.
I can truly recommend his place.
Roberto is such a charming and thoughtful host to us. He have prepared all information needed for a great trip stay in Barcelona, even the detail guidance to arrive his flat. His flat is cozy and well organized, and full of his creative decorations. We stay his flat as at home. It's a great experience for us.
Super accueil, Roberto est adorable, il nous a donné des conseils durant notre séjour à Barcelone et son appartement est simplement parfait ! Nous avons passé un excellent moment avec lui !
It was our first time in Barcelona and we regret so much that we decided to stay only 2 nights. The city has so many things to offer and so does Roberto. He provided us from the beginning with information about getting home from the train station, which is not complicated at all as the flat has a central position. We arrived quite late (8:30 pm) but he was happy to wait for us and to explain us all we need to know about the attractions, transportation and restaurants. He also gave us papers with all the information and a map.
As shown in the photos, the flat is full of life and revitalizing. It is a pleasure to leave in a place like that. I enjoyed so much Roberto's creativity. Overall, we were very happy with this choice and truly recommend the place. Barcelona is magic as well, you won't regret!
Première fois pour nous sur Airbnb et se fut une belle expérience et rencontre avec Roberto qui nous a accueilli très chaleureusement.
Grace a son organisation, ses conseils et son amour pour Barcelone nous avons passé un très bon séjour.
Nous retournons chez Roberto, ça c'est sur!
