The bedroom is ok for 3.
But we can arrange another mattress for a fourth person.
the neighborhood is central but fortunately there's no much tourists.
its the most charming and residential "barrio" of barcelona.
lots of bars, cinema, day and nightlife.

you know, its the opposite of staying in a noisy and overcrownded area. ask your friends that stood near las ramblas, and you know what i'm talking. this is a very catalan kind of area.
there's a lot of squares where the famous tapa restaurants dispose their tables at the open air. locals come to gràcia to have some drinks with friends and also have some ethnical dinner, because there's a bunch of restaurants from all over the world. for instance, there is an ethiopian, lebanese and a brazilian in my own street; and some greek close by, also tibetan, thai, portuguese, vietnamese, catalan of course, japanese,...you name it.
well, i can help you with that. after all we can agree that
sometimes a local's advice is better than a cold guidebook.
i wish you enjoy your stay and that i can be useful in this amazing town.
if you're interested in meditation, you can join me, free of charge, every monday, wednesday and thursday at our buddhist center, 15 mins walking distance.
1 if you are not selfish ad consider the others nothing can be wrong.
3. three basic rules for the kitchen: keep it clean, keep it clean and keep it clean, please.
2. if you break a glass, a plate or anything: just replace it, no drama
4 and most important: enjoy your stay.
I felt very comfortable at Paulo's house! He is a very attentive host and knows how to make his guests feel at ease in his home. He had a lot of nice details like inviting me dinner, breakfast and other days a glass of wine. I also had the luck to meet some other interesting personalities staying at his place from which I learned and shared a lot, that was the most valuable experience for me. The neighborhood is great!!! Very well located and communicated. In the other side, if you value very much privacy and luxuries in life, this place is not for you. Is definitely a place for easygoing and relaxed people. Thank you for everything Paulo!!!!
Paulo is a great host. He is clearly committed to building/fostering community within his neighborhood, his guests, and the airbnb community itself. While I was primarily in Barcelona for work, he had great recommendations for enjoying the city and went out of his way to see that I was having a pleasant stay.
The house is great, too. It's wonderfully idiosyncratic and seems to draw a group of like-minded people: relaxed, friendly, respectful. If you're uber-private, you might rent the house out in its entirety rather than just a room, but I enjoyed the comraderie. Would definitely stay there again.
Paulo was an excellent host! Living at his flat was very much cozy & special - I felt immensely comfortable and at ease being his temporary roommate. He knows plenty about Barcelona and legitimately enjoys sharing his experience.
I was very happy with the location - in the heart of friendly, quirky Gracia and only a short walk from Metro subway stops. The neighborhood was quiet enough and the bed was comfy. Wifi was readily available and fast. The shower wasn't amazing - kinda weak water pressure and didn't get too hot - but did the job.
I had quite a bit of travel trauma preceding this Barcelona trip, and staying with Paulo showed me the flip side of how good traveling can be. Thanks!!
I was very happy with my choice to stay here at Paulo's flat. Not only is it in a great area, but the flat itself is quite nice. It is a fixer-upper that is quirky, charming, and comfortable. Paulo is a wonderful guy that I hope you get the chance to know. I stayed here for 3 weeks and it began to feel like home. This flat is for the traveller who wants to have a nice calm stay in a neighborhood that you can explore (but still easily get to all the tourist attractions). Don't come here if you are looking for luxury. Come here if you want to have a good time and an authentic experience in a local, fun, beautiful (website hidden)- Paulo has great music taste and if you're lucky maybe you will have the chance to hear him DJ.
Thanks for a great stay, Paulo!
The stay started with a perfect how-to-get-there guide given by Paulo. The nice flat is located in the heart of the beautiful district Gracia in Barcelona. The room was clean and calm. Immediately I had a good connection to the host. He also gave me some secret tips where to go in Barcelona! The next time there I would like to be a guest in his nice flat again!
