Interaction with Guests
I always go to pick up the guests to the closest Aerobus or metro stop to show the way to the place, give the keys and give a brief talk about the city.
The "Eixample" neighborhood, where the apartment is, is very close to some of the main attractions of the city: "Paseo de Gracia" Avenue, with its emblematic Antonio Gaudi's modernist buildings ("Casa Batlló" and "La Pedrera") "Plaza Catalunya", Gothic Quarter, etc.
Near the apartment there are supermarkets, small food stores, restaurants, tapas bars, cinemas, theaters, libraries, health centers, pharmacies, and the department store "El Corte Inglés” in "Plaza Catalunya".
Its location is unique to enjoy of unforgettable days to discover the city of Barcelona.
The apartment is only 5 minutes walking to the closest metro station "Universitat" (red line, number 1 and 2), "Hospital Clinic" (blue line, number 5), 1 minute to stop buses and close to the "Aerobus" stop as well.
In front of the place, there is a paid parking but insead of car I recommend the public transport (metro, bus, regional train or tram) to move around the city.
The easiest way to get downtown from the Airport is take the "Aerobus" service that leave from Terminal 1 and Terminal 2.
Other Things to Note
Bed linen and towels are included.
I can offer you an oficial guide (price 30eur) to show you Sagrada Familia or another areas in Barcelona.
Smoking inside the apartment is totally forbidden.
The smoking area is on the balcony!
Antonio a été un hôte parfait, soucieux de notre bien être et très disponible. L'appartement est parfaitement situé et spacieux. Nous avons passé un merveilleux séjour
Antonio was a great host. Very friendly and being available if need be. His place was clean and matched the photos and comments left.the only negative minor point would be the lack of fan and air circulating in the apartment in case of hot weather. The lovely balcony overlooks a very noisy and busy street that makes it impossible to leave the windows open and made sleeping impossible. Be warned that there is no coffee machines... Which is too bad. The area has some nice coffee shops (website hidden) amenities are very basic in case you need to stay for a long stay in Barcelona and would like to save money on cooking. There is no washing machine either. WiFi could be better also but I am sure Antonio will work on it. All in all a pleasant stay.
This was my first time traveling with air bnb. Luckily enough, Antonio was a great host who introduced me to this fantastic website. He picked me up from the station and showed me all the amenities in the neighborhood. Additionally he showed us a lot of bars that weren't as well known that were truly great. The apartment was in great shape and it made our trip so much better!
Antonio was a great host, no complaints. He made sure we had our needs met and was friendly. The apartment was great location, but very noisy (from road and the neighbours).
Thank you Antonio for doing all you could for us, the apartment had all we needed.
We had a fantastic stay in Barcelona at Antonio's apartment. Antonio met us at the nearby Airport bus stop, and walked us to the apartment, pointing out local amenities on the way. The apartment was perfectly appointed and in the greatest neighbourhood for dining, shopping and with good train-line nearby. Antonio was quick to help with questions we had about the city. The best Air BnB experience we had in all of Europe.
Antonio nous avait préparé de la documentation sur Barcelone ,sur les sites à visiter,un plan du métro .
Avant notre départ de chez nous,par mail il nous avait indiqué comment rejoindre l'appartement à partir de la gare de Sants ou nous arriverions ,et il nous avait conseillé sur les meilleurs tarifs de metro pour nos déplacements pendant notre séjour. Nous avions avions aussi le nom et l'adresse de magasins d'alimentation dans le quartier.
Il s'est occupé de faire venir notre taxi a la fin du séjour.
We had a great stay at Antonio's apartment, he communicated very well with us, explained where everything was around the apartment and suggested sights to visit. The place was clean, conveniently located (very close to the city centre, but also to other neighbouroods like Gracia) and has everything you need to enjoy a couple of days in the city :).
