About this listing
This flat is an atelier converted into a residence. its on the floor level with a lovely backyard which is my favorite place in the house.
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. 15 minutes walking to the wonders of gaudi, as to sagrada familia, la pedrera, or parc guell.
you know, its the opposite of staying in a noisy and overcrowded 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 break a glass, a plate or anything, just replace it. no drama.
2. for the kitchen there are 3 basic rules: keep it clean, keep it clean and keep it clean.
3. no parties. i never had problem with neighbours, and we should keep it this way.
Paulo, made us feel welcomed even before getting there. We really like the place, it has character, it's different and it is cozy. The flat had everything as announced.
I changed my travel plans and decided to stay longer in Barcelona. Even though he didn't have space and with such short notice, he helped me look for a place with a lovely friend of his. Extra thanks for that.
was an amazing apartment and just like no other! we loved it here so much!! in such an amazing area too. Paulo made our stay easy and comfortable, he was a fabulous host. would definitely want to stay here again! beautiful city and beautiful apartment
Paulo's Buddhist flat was very fun. It was funky and very adequate in terms of space and set up. The location was very cool. - in an old storefront in a residential neighbohood. Although my wife didn't completely appreciate some of the more more funky aspects of the place, my teenage kids loved it as soon as they walked in. Paulo was very helpful and we called him a couple of times to ask for advice on places to go, public transportation, etc. The back court yard was since do have and provided surprisingly nice fresh air, despite the lack of exterior windows in the flat. We were all surprised how quiet the flat was at night, despite it's location in a dense, busy area.
Great host! Kept us informed with everything that was going on, told us where to go and invited us to one of his dj nights. Really enjoyed our time at his flat, we watched films most nights with the projector installed in the outside lounge. Would really recommend you stay here you won't be disappointed :).
Paulo was the perfect host - informative, welcoming and gracious. He provided us with everything we needed, including a bottle of Cava on arrival and a fabulous breakfast. The flat itself is charming - a real home with a wonderful energy and very comfortable - also an excellent music collection! The area of Gracia is wonderful to walk around and Paulo gave us excellent tips on where to eat and drink.
Thankyou for a brilliant stay, I hope my bloody Mary recipe comes in handy!
paulo est super gentil et son appart était magnifique. Moi et mes amis avons passé un très bon séjour chez lui. Je vous recommande vivement son appart!
조용하고 좋은 동네에 위치한 너무 좋은 아파트에서 잘 머물다 갑니다. 아파트에 없는게 없고 빔 프로젝터까지 있어 바르셀로나 여행중 가장 좋았던 곳이 파울로네 집일 정도였어요.
nous avons été très bien reçu par Paulo, qui est à l'image de son appartement ouvert, simple et convivial...L'emplacement est idéal, dans ce quartier plein de bonnes surprise.
