The Space

Note on availability: our calendar on airbnb is always up to date. If you see that the dates you desire are available, you can directly use "instant book".

This is a very private and quiet 1 bedroom apartment in the Gracia neighborhood, one of Barcelona's most vibrant areas. It is only minutes away from the marvelous Parc Güell, Gaudi's masterpiece of landscaping and architecture. This is not a room in a shared apartment, you get the full apartment to yourself! (shampoo and shower gel are available)

The apartment is within minutes of the Pl. Lesseps Line 3 metro station. The metro runs 24h on weekend nights, and on weekdays there are also night buses directly from Pl. Cataluña running every 20 min.

There is also a tourist bus stop nearby ("Barcelona Bus Turistic" - highly recommended if you only have 1-2 days to visit the city).
You are only 1 minute away from the Lesseps Market (fresh fruit, vegetables, groceries, etc...) and walking down Calle Verdi, you reach the famous restaurants, cafes, bars, etc.. area of the Gracia neighborhood.

The apartment is ideal for a couple or a couple+baby for a fantastic Barcelona stay. It has it's own bathroom (Bathtub, shower, toilet and sink), a kitchen corner as well as a lovely balcony overlooking the quiet inner courtyard. Fresh sheets and towels are of course provided for you stay, as well as a baby bed upon request (free of charge).

If you look for a quiet, private, and relaxing place to spend a few days in Barcelona, you found it! We look forward to welcoming you to this vibrant and exciting city!

Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.

  • We were really happy with the Apartment form Ilona and Alex, it was nice and quiet, close to the metro station and had plenty of food shops around. It was away from the main tourist area.
    The balcony was a great asset, even though it was small.
    we could walk to Park Guell and to la Sagrada Famila.
    thank you

  • Had a great experience staying here for a week with my boyfriend! The studio is very private, and had a well supplied kitchen; plates, silverware, glasses, coffee maker. The patio is pretty small but really cute. The neighborhood is nice and quite and super close to a metro stop and Park Güell. The water heater in the bathroom is small, so the hot water doesn't last forever, but gets plenty hot. There was also plenty of shampoo, conditioner, and a hair dryer in the bathroom, which was nice.
    llona and Alex were very prompt at getting back to me with questions and gave good instructions to find the apartment and check in and out.
    Really loved staying here for the week! It's the perfect little studio for a couple.

  • Die Unterkunft von Familie Mandl war für eine City-Tour vollkommen ausreichend. Eine kleine Küche mit allen Küchenutensilien war vorhanden. Der vereinbarte Abholservice vom Flughafen zur Wohnung machte den Aufenthalt entspannter und erfolgte reibungslos. Können wir nur empfehlen. :-)

  • Ilona and Alex were great hosts. Communication in advance of our arrival was easy, and the the fruit and bottle of water when we checked in was a nice surprise. We stayed for 3 days and the apartment was the perfect size for a couple, and we loved the little outdoor balcony. The price was very reasonable for having a whole apartment to ourselves. Gracia ended up being our favourite neighbourhood in Barcelona and it was great to be such a short walk to the metro station and to Parc Guell. We had an early flight out when we left and we really appreciated the option of the ride to the airport for a reasonable price. We would definitely stay there if we're ever in BCN again!

  • The apartment was great. Small but all the necessary is there, bathroom, kitchen, bed, everything clean and nice. We enjoyed our holidays in Barcelona a lot. The location was great, we enjoyed to be very close to Parc Güell. It's very easy to be in contact with Ilona and Alex.

  • Die Wohnung liegt in toller, zentraler Lage. U-Bahn Lesseps in unmittelbarer Nähe. Park Güell, Bars+Restaurants in Gracia- alles fußläufig erreichbar.
    Wir hatten ein Mehrtages-Pass für die Metro, so mussten wir uns keine Gedanken mehr machen.
    Die Unterkunft (1 Zimmer mit Kochzeile) ist klein- für 2 Personen ausreichend. Ein Zustellbett passt m.E. nicht rein. Die Wohnung ist größtenteils sauber, allerdings schon sehr abgelebt. Die Matratzen sind sehr durchgelegen und verursachten bei uns beiden Rückenschmerzen.
    Die Ausstattung ist mehr als ausreichend- Mikrowelle, 2 Kochplatten, Kühlschrank+Gefrierfach, Geschirr für 2 Personen, Handtücher, Fön.
    Warmwasser läuft über einen Boiler. Langwarmduscher haben also irgendwann vorübergehend nur noch laues Wasser.
    W-LAN ist sehr vorteilhaft, wenn man den nächsten Tag plant. Funktionierte auch reibungslos und schnell, bis auf den letzten Abend.
    Im TV laufen, wer es nutzen will, nur spanische und teilweise englische Sender.
    Haben auch den privaten Shuttle-Service vom und zum Flughafen genutzt. Spart Zeit und laut Angabe der Vermieter auch Geld zum Taxitarif.
    Alles in allem ein gelungener und zu empfehlender Aufenthalt.

We're a multi-national family living in Catalonia over 11 years, loving every day of our life as Barcelonians. We live in a very large apartment in the hills of Barcelona, near the famous Parc Guell, the Tibidabo Tramvia Blau, the child-friendly Science Museum, and many other Barcelona attractions. The apartment had a huge terrace, and the building has a rooftop swimming pool and solarium which our kids absolutely love! We live near two metro stations, only minutes away from Barcelona's bustling old town. The extraordinary Bar Mirabe (www-mirabe-com/en) is only a short walk away, and from there you can take the cable car to Barcelona's highest viewpoint, the Tibidabo peak. Kids will love the amusement park's attractions up there while parents can relax and admire the stunning views. Besides enjoying Barcelona, we love travelling, and spend a significant part of our time abroad, both for private trips and professional ones. Our apartment has 2 guest rooms, each with their own en-suite bathroom. The guest rooms are conveniently separated from the family's rooms, assuring you maximum privacy and comfort. We have a lot of friends visiting us, so the rooms are not always available - please check the calendar before booking!
