The apartment is located in a 1897's building in an area called "Eixample" ("Left Eixample").
Is in a third floor (without elevator) simple, very clean, bright and near the center of Barcelona.
It has a large balcony with nice view!
The location of the place is perfect, just 5 minutes walking to the center of Barcelona in an area called "Eixample" (Left Eixample).
It is an apartment ideal for 2/3 people.
It has one double room (facing the street) and a single room (facing a patio), one bathroom, fully equiped kitchen and balcony.
Guests could have acces to the whole apartment including the fully equiped kitchen with electrical stove, small refrigerator and microwave oven.
There is also free wifi.
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!
Great host, very communicative, answered any questions, minimal but great apartment for a short stay, good location in a safe area, fresh bedding and clean towels was a great touch!
Would definitely stay here again.
Antonio was very helpful and Nice With us he waited for us late at night , the appartenant was clean and Well located its close to every where Thanks Antonio
Antonio was a great host. He met us at the bus stop and showed us to the apartment before providing us with plenty of information about the city. The apartment itself was very small but perfectly comfortable for a short stay. It is also a 3 flight walkup so it is an ideal apartment for anyone planning on spending most of their time out.
This was everything you could possibly want from an AirBnb experience! Antonio met us at the bus stop, took us to the apartment and gave us lots of tips about what to check out in Barcelona. Antonio was an absolutely lovely guy who seemed genuinely happy to meet new guests and talk about his wonderful city. We had his contact details and he was kind enough to check on how we were getting on during our stay, and even popped by to make sure everything was okay before we left.
The apartment itself is lovely - cosy and well stocked, containing everything we needed for our 5 night stay in Barcelona. It's very well located, under a ten minute walk from Universitat station, easy to get to but far enough away from the crowds. A little traffic noise but it did not disturb us at all (and we are generally light sleepers).
We cannot fault the apartment nor Antonio, and would gladly stay there again when we return. For the price it was an absolute bargain!
Thanks very much Antonio for your kindness, hopefully see you again soon!
Very nice and communicative person with a sense of service - even proposed to help on taxis, etc... True care of the hosts !
Antonio picked us up at the metro-station. He is a nice guy, told us a bit about the area, where to eat en where to go. At the appartment he had a map for us, with the highlights for sightseeing.
The apartment is at a great location; between city centre and other interesting places. The apartment itself is minimally equipped, but enough if you stay a few days. There was wifi, working 80% of the time.
Overall I would recommend this place, to have a nice time in Barcelona!
Antonio is a great host, he picked us up at the metro station, helped us lifting our luggage to the 3rd floor, gave us useful information about where to eat and visit, is responsive to our needs, etc. The downside is the house per se which is small, 3rd floor without elevators, pretty hard for travelers with lots of stuff, building pretty old, little bit noisy near the street, but it's clean and well equipped.
