The Space

Rent a small apartment with the charm of old Barcelona.
SUPER equipped and centrally located with all the means of transportation nearby.
Just 4 blocks from "Las Ramblas", "Plaza Catalunya", "Mediterranean", "Playa Barceloneta", "Shopping Maremagnum"; "Ciutadella Park."
The apartment has a double room,
A kitchen lounge with sofa bed
A small bathroom.
All linens and towells are provided plus endless tips on where to dine and what to avoid...
The building is a typical old barcelona, with narrow staircases. Is The 3st floor.
Internet adsl, wifi.
The terminal area is a major tourist spot in Barcelona.
There are many bars, tapas restaurants, a very handsome promenade and local shops.
The beach is about a 10 minute walk, which means you can enjoy a beach holiday and city break at the same time. In addition, the Born is quite near the Parque de la Ciutadella: a quiet place to relax and watch an afternoon hippies playing their bongos. Barcelona Zoo is also located in the Parque de la Ciutadella
Go with the old charm in a very exclusive neighborhood.

FROM THE AIRPORT: The easiest way to get to the apartment is simply to jump in a taxi outside the airport which will cost around 30€. If you're travelling along and want to save money there is a train link from the airport (T2) but trains only leave every hour or so (annoying if you just miss one) so it's easier and cheaper to jump on the blue AeroBus from the airport (7€ - leaves every 15 minutes) and then take a taxi from the final stop Plaça Cataluña (6€)

BY TRAIN: If you are arriving by train, the lovely Estación de Francia is just a one minute stroll from the apartment. This is also an excellent transport link to get to the beaches and some enjoyable day trips outside the city, for example, pretty Sitges, the Dali Museum in Figueras and the breathtaking monastery in Montserrat.

  • I don't found Simonetta, beacause she was out of Barcellona, but her friend Camilo.
    The Apartment is in a perfect position to reach the sea and the centre. It's perfect for tourist who want to discover the city.
    We spent a great holiday.

  • Simonetta was a good host, the apartment was just as we expected, but with the nice addition of some champagne chilling in the fridge :)

    The apartment is in the perfect location to explore a beautiful city!

  • The apartment was great! It was quite small, and up a LONG flight of narrow, steep stairs but the area cannot be beat! Simonetta was great and accommodating and I really cannot complain about anything. I would recommend this place to anyone with loads of luggage :-).

  • Thoroughly enjoyed our stay! Great location in the authentic Born area, within walking distance to the beach and the city centre. The apartment itself was small and cozy but provided everything needed for a city break. All in all the best review i can give is that i would happily stay there again!

  • Un appartement idéalement situé en plein centre ! Aucun soucis de bruits à signaler, ce qui est très appréciable quand on loge au coeur de la ville. Une hôte rapidement disponible par internet (WhatsApp) en cas de soucis. Une bouteille de Cava nous attendait gentiment dans le frigo à notre arrivée.

    En ce qui concerne l'appartement en soi, dans un mauvais état général : une fuite d'eau au pied des W.C obligeant à passer la serpillère dans les toilettes plusieurs fois par jour, papier peint se décollant, le support de fixation de la douche qui tombe. De plus, la salle de bain est minuscule. Plusieurs lattes du lit été cassées, lit peu confortable. L'appartement était propre dans l'ensemble, à part un évier sale à notre arrivée, et une vieille part de pizza dans le four ! Heureusement il y a tant de choses à faire en ville, que nous étions souvent dehors.

    Au final, à conseiller tout de même si vous cherchez un endroit bien placé et souhaitez profiter au maximum de la ville !

  • Check in was quite easy. Simona was not in Barcelona, but her friend was there at the appointed time to greet us and let us in. We were shown all the important factors and told how to check out. She showed us a map and pointed out some key sights. The apartment is well situated, and easy to get to from the main train station via metro.

    It was not too noisy- except that there is a church nearby (it is beautiful!) and the bell dings throughout the day/night. If that bothers you, be sure to bring ear plugs. There was contstruction at the building next door while we were there and they were very noisy during the day, but we were mostly gone, so this was not a problem.

    The apartment could have been a little cleaner- the carpet seemed to need vacumming, there were leftover food articles from previous tenants, and tons of bath products in the shower. But all in all, a great stay.

    The bottle of champagne was a nice touch- especially as it was my birthday the day we arrived!

    We had a bit of trouble with the washing machine, which broke while we were there, but Simona was very gracious and we were able to get that sorted.

    I would recommend the apartment- well situated, decorated, comfortable and sufficient!
