This is a very Big Apartment in RAVAL (Nord). A perfect place to stay for single travelers or group of friends, long o short time.

The apartment is lovely. There is only one little bathroom with toilet but always clean by the housekeeping service every day, a fully equipped kitchen where u can use the washing machine/dryer, a great table with four chairs and sofa in the living room and a balcony with a small area to have a drink, smoke or rest.
It is a place full of light, good vibes and an amazing company. I'll share it only with U and maybe other guests. No one else! :)

In the area you will find some fine art galleries, bookstores, museums, restaurants, bars & Supermarkets. It leads to the emblematic MACBA modern art museum (sitting on a nice open square beloved by skateboarders) and CCCB, as well as a beautifully rejuvenated Rambla del Raval, complete with palm trees, benches and Fernando Botero's playful statue The Cat... (for our money much nicer, and certainly much calmer than La Rambla proper!).

Excellent location, nice host, sunny and spacious room - the bathroom can be a little tricky but I was satisfied with my stay. Really nice book store right in front of the apartment.
Cool guy, nice place, friendly people :)
Un appartement très bien placé, à 2 pas de La Rambla, et idéal pour visiter et sortir. Assez spacieux, malgré l'unique salle de bain pour un logement de 15 personnes. Hôte très agréable et disponible pour donner des conseils et idées.
En revanche, la propreté laisse à désirer (vaisselle débordante dans la cuisine..)
Pixel and his brother Fernando were amazing hosts! I was traveling on my own and they were always willing to take me out on the town! Pixel knows all of the hot spots in the city and has amazing friends he's more than open to share company with.
The house had two other guests and we all became friends quickly. The building is located very close to La Ramblas and the metro so if you need to go anywhere in the city it's only a short walk away or a quick metro ride to wherever.
The area in where the building is located is centrally located in the city. The Raval is an up and coming neighborhood and if you're in too deep you're in the immigrant part of town. The area that the apt is located in is closer to the hipster area and is only a block from the Contemporary art museum. You can see skaters in front of the art museum showcasing their tricks.
There's also a great little restaurant two blocks away called Dostrece which is owned by a Los Angeles local, Abrams. Great spot to get a drink and international cuisine.
I would definitely recommend this place again. Great value. Great people. Comfortable room and great location!
Oh right outside of the building is graffiti art by a famous artist named Alice. It's a pretty fantastic piece!
Nous avons passé 2 nuits avec des amis dans cet appartement parfaitement situé dans Barcelone. Le métro est à quelques mètres, La Rambla également, des taxis partout autour si besoin. Nous avons eu affaire au frère de Guillermo celui ci étant en vacances et il s'est arrangé pour que tout se passe au mieux pour nous.
L'endroit est plutôt calme (nous avons pu dormir tard le matin sans être réveillé par le bruit) tout en étant très proche de l'activité de Barcelone.
Vraiment je recommande ! Si j'ai besoin d'un appartement pour un prochain séjour, je repartirais sans problème au même endroit !
The reservation was canceled the day before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Pixel is great host ,he is calm ,cool that you will never have problem with.Also he is an easy-going person The location of the house is great just 2 minutes to Las Ramblas and between liceu and Catalunya metro (email hidden)ere is good working wi-fi in his house.I recomend his place with out thinking.
Best location, friendly host!!!
Pixel is a really nice guy. The place is a good value and fun place to hang out. A bunch of us went to the beach and walked around the city together. It felt like staying with friends
Me and my friend had a very good stay at Guillermo's apartment. The flat is in the very heart of the city (5min walk to Plaza Catalunya). If you want to visit Barcelona or enjoy the city for a short stay, this is a good and cheap plan. Moreover you will appreciate Guillermo's friendly advice if you have any question about the city.
