The Space

We are offering a room with plenty of light and privacy directly in the center of the Ciudad Viejo. We are very close to the Barcelona Cathedral. The apartment is a 5 minute walk from Plaza Jaume Metro station, and Plaza Catalunya Metro station.

The popular neighborhoods of Born, Gotico and Raval are right outside, including shopping, eating, drinking, and dancing! The beach is a 10 minute walk, or if you are feeling lazy, there are plenty of buses nearby which will take you directly there.

Our apartment was recently renovated, and includes all new furniture and equipment. We have a small but fully furnished kitchen, a bathroom with a sink and a shower, a new washing machine and a full sized refrigerator. They are all available for you to use, and since we will be around, we can help you with anything you need!

The room we are renting has a new, comfortable couch which converts into a double-size bed. We will provide sheets, pillows, and towels. The room is a good size, well-lit and well-ventilated, with views to the street. It's a great perspective for watching tourists and locals peddling their wares.

A few friends of ours stayed here for a while, and they enjoyed it so much we got the idea to continue to share the room here on airbnb .

Make sure you check out the photos and the map, and please email us if you have any questions about renting and availability.

The two of us speak English, Spanish, Catalan, Italian, and Portuguese. Feel free to use whatever language you prefer!

  • Margarida is very nice. The location is great, close to everything, especially the beautiful cathedral. It is right out of your door step. Margarida takes good care of her place. A great experience.

  • Great location, right around the corner from the cathedral and close to everything in Barcelona! Loved it and made our stay in Barcelona perfect. They were very flexible with our check in/out which was nice and chatted with us about tips for Barcelona.
    Overall, a great experience!

  • We spent a week with Margarida and her friend. They were both very welcoming, kind and friendly. We had nice talks about Barcelona, city-trips, architecture and life in general !

    The flat is nicely decorated and it really feels like home.
    The flat is centrally-located (a few meters from the gothic cathedral of Barcelona), it's perfect location to walk around the different quarters of Barcelona (Bari el gotic, El Born, plaza Catalunya, etc.).
    As it's centrally located and as the bedroom overlooks a pedestrian street, there could be some noise during the night. We managed to sleep well during our week there and found it really funny, but if you are sensible to noise : you will need to put some earplugs !

    Thank you Margarida for your advices on the espadrillas ! All my friends love them, but Damien hasn't put his yellow espadrillas on yet.
    We hope to see both of you again one day :)

    PS : The bouquet is on our living room, looking great, haha !

  • I couldn't have had a better experience than I did with Margarida! She made us feel right at home and was extremely helpful. My girlfriend and I spent 2 weeks in Spain and the few days with Margarida were by far the best!

  • Margarida was a great host. She was very nice and helpful to us. She was really fun to hang out and chat with. She gave us really good tips and made our stay perfect. It was like visiting a friend. The house is super central and the room was decorated really nice. The apartment is very warm and feels like home. We are really glad to have met Margarida in Barcelona.

  • It was great to stay with Margarida. We felt very welcome at her place.
    The apartment is about 50 meters from the old cathedral, 15 minutes walking distance to the beach. What more do you want?!
    (Though it can get a little noisy in the night time, since you are right in the middle of it, but this was no problem for us.)
    if you want to go to Barcelona, this is the place.

  • Our stay at Margarida was wonderful and she helped us a great deal! Like the ad says, you definately are in the middle of it and close to everything you can think of!

    Not only we had the chance to meet a great host, but we also made a good friend! I definately recommend this place to stay!
