Spacious room in historic palace

Apartment - Private room · Carrer de Montcada, Barcelona, Catalonia 08003, Spain

The Space

We offer a light flooded double room with sofa or second bed in a historic XIV century noble palace with view to a Gothic courtyard in the heart of the vibrant Born district. The flat has a unique artistic bohemian flair.

Very centric but quiet, neighboring Picasso Museum in historical pedestrian area with numerous touristic sights in walking distance. 5 minutes to the Gothic Cathedral, the old port, the Ciutadella park, 15 minutes to the beach. Few minutes to all types of public transport - Metro, train, bus, Tourist Bus.

The entire flat is approximately 300 m2, my daughter and I live on one side - and the room you can see is on the other side, across the patio fromour bedroom. The room is big enough to use as a bed/living room, giving you more space and options than just a bedroom. There is no additional shared living room. The room has the window to the patio so nights are quiet despite top location! It is on the third floor without elevator. Shower, bathroom and sink are each separate, all shared with us and another flat mate (who is usually only here Monday - Friday evenings).

The kitchen can be used to make coffee or tea in the morning, breakfast dishes can be provided. If you have any specific needs please don't hesitate to ask, we are very flexible and communicative. WiFi, bedsheets and towels included. There is a terrace with a typical Barcelona-rooftop-view for smoking or having a beer to enjoy the view.

We are happy to give you tips beyond the things you find in the tourist guides and make your visit to Barcelona an unforgettable one!

If you would like to come with kids we can arrange accordingly and negotiate the additional price.

Please note i only do one check-in per party, later arrivals would have to be coordinated by you directly.

I work during the week and don't get home until approx. 3.30 p.m. so this makes check-in during the week a little difficult before then, but we can always look at the options. On weekends i am totally flexible. Please make sure you let me know approximately when you plan to arrive and you have a phone to call me when you're there - there is no doorbell!

Please write me on AirBNB directly, just to make sure your emails don't end up in my spam-filter!
Thanks for your help.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In

  • This room is beautiful with lots of light. the location is superb - right in the middle of the born quarter (central) [note airbnb location app marker is in the wrong street, it's actually next to the picasso museum]. the building is charming with a lovely central courtyard.

    Maggie is very friendly. The WiFi was hit & miss whilst we were there. Maggie's 3 year old daughter also has a tendency to shout "nutella" at 8am so if you're looking for a lie in, consider this. Overall a great stay though!

  • We had a wonderful time in Barcelona, all thanks to Maggie and Guillermo, who gave us good advise on where to go in Barcelona and especially where to eat :-)! Their place is really cool, just like on the pictures. The room is big and clean and we felt very comfortable there. Thanks for the great time.

Maggie and Guillermo and their daughter are welcoming and really helpful for any questions + the apartment is awesome and they have a real talent for decoration! + great place, right next to picasso museum and lots of bars, restaurants, and beach!

    Had a fantastic stay in this huge bedroom. Fantastic location in Barcelona. I was welcomed by Guillermo who is the perfect host. He will tell you the best places, town. Don't miss this place !

  • This was our first experience with airBnB!!! :) My husband and I spent 5 sunny december days in Maggies apartment, which is located in a small lane in the middle of the city. Everything important is near by. Maggie (who also speaks german!) and her boyfriend were very kind and open to answer our questions, e.g. about where to go in the city.. They're two easygoing people.
    The room was exactly as shown on the pictures, bright and spacious.. and calm in the night.
    Mucho gusto!!!

  • Maggie and her daughter were lovely hosts! It was amazing to get to stay in their very special and spacious home. The area is fantastic, walking distance to everywhere we wanted to be. It was really quiet and peaceful at night. We´d love to stay there again.

  • We had a fantastic stay at Maggie's ! The neighboorhood is really great, with many restaurants, bars and lovely places to see. The flat is in a very beautiful building, it is big and calm. Everything was clean (bathroom), the host was lovely. The only thing is that we could hear the people in the room next to ours (we could hear them snoring...). However I would definitely recommend this place to anyone ! (Especially for 2 people)

  • Meine kleine Tochter und ich verbrachten 5 wunderbare Tage bei Maggie und ihrer Tochter. Die Mädchen verstanden sich großartig und meine Kleine durfte sich auch außerhalb unseres Zimmers in der Wohnung frei bewegen. Sowohl das Zimmer als auch der Innenhof entsprachen genau meinen Vorstellungen, Maggie selbst übertraf sie sogar noch um Einiges. Atmosphäre und Flair sind kaum zu toppen, wir haben uns rundherum wohl gefühlt. Die Gastgeberin gab uns wunderbare Anregungen zu verschiedenen Aktivitäten und beantwortete gern unsere Fragen. Vielen lieben Dank und sehr gern wieder. Eike und Jelenka

  • Maggie was a great host, spoke english fluently and the rooms were just as they are shown on the pictures. The apartement is very artistic and spacious, and is located just beside the Del Mar cathedral in beautiful surroundings. The beach is also nearby. The room was located towards the backyard, so it was nice and quiet to kick back or sleep after long nights in this great city. I definitely recommend this place to stay for future travellers!
