The Space

Our apartment is centrally located in San Antoni/Eixample, a real Catalan neighbourhood, away from the tourist crowds where you'll be able to live and experience life like a local, but strategically located 10 mins walk to Las Ramblas and Placa Catalunya. The apartment is well communicated with metro Rocafort (L1) directly in front whilst metros , Urgell (L1) and San Antoni (L2) are a 5 mins walk. San Antoni is a cute and vibrant area but very safe and peaceful. The district was made famous by it's market, although currently being renovated it still exists along the streets of San Antoni. You'll also find San Antoni's local market, food stores around the corner for all your grocery needs and essentials. Whilst restaurants with great quality and cheap prices are abundant in the area (just ask us for more information when you arrive). The aerobus stop to/from the airport is around the corner and a 5 mins walk. The centre for Placa Catalunya and Las Ramblas, as well as Placa Espanya is about 10-15 mins depending on how quickly you walk. The Gaudi buildings, Parc Guell and Sagrada Famila are in walking distance if you have the time otherwise they are only a few stops away on the metro.

The room is a double for 2 people with a wardrobe and a desk, you will be provided with fresh towels, linen & Breakfast.

  • I booked a room at Aaron's two days before heading to Barcelona after my booking with another flat was changed last minute. I only had a very short stay, but Aaron was a great host, gave lots of useful info and even took me out to lunch! The flat was clean and comfy and has a lovely balcony for catching some sun.

    Response from Aaron:

    Thanks Nick, it was too short but a pleasure to meet you. Shame I didn't get to see you before you left, hope it won't be the last anyway. Take Care.

  • Great place that is centrally located, clean and quiet. Although Aaron was away when I stayed at his house, he gave a me tons of tips for Barcelona through email, which was much appreciated.

  • The flat is very well located: it is within walking distance of the main attractions. The room was simple and clean. Use of the kitchen was possible :)
    Aaron was always available on email. He gave me useful tips about the neighborhood and the city. Pity we did not meet each-other. I hope to meet him next time I return to BCN!!!

  • Wonderful stay. Aaron is a sweetheart and thinks of everything needed to help you have pleasant experience. Fellow guests were very nice as well. Quiet place made it easy to sleep and comfortable for hanging out. The lift to the 4th floor was a necessity. I recommend this very economical BNB.

  • Aaron apartment is located close to some of the main attractions of the city...Ramblas, Paseo de Gracia and other nice places are walk distance, the apartment is nice and clean, and Aaron took care of everything to make me feel welcome and as in home.I also enjoyed some of the many restaurants walking distance from his location.
    I was traveling alone and safety was important for me....Aaron place is very safe at any time of the day and night around, and also very peaceful inside.
    Thank you Aaron.

  • Aaron was a very friendly host, the location of the apartment is very good with nice bars and restaurants very close, especially if you are gay. The apartment has all the basic needs and is clean.

  • Aaron is a great host! The first evening, another guest, me and Aaron went out for dinner and it was delicious! He showed me everything important in Barcelona on a map: the location of the beach Mar Bella, La Sagrada Familia, Gaudi-buildings etc. The apartment is very clean and VERY central, right behind the university, few meters next to the famous Axel Hotel. You can walk to almost every gay bar and club within 10 min (that's what I liked the most, haha). I would definitely recommend Aaron's place to everyone! Thanks Aaron for the great time and see you soon!!

  • Aaron was an amazing host! He showed us the ropes with must see tourist and non tourist activities and gave us great dining recommendations. We wouldn't think twice to stay there again.
