The Space

Just a few minutes from the beach, in the heart of the seaside neighbourhood of Barcelona, La Barceloneta, lies this bright and comfortable one bedroom apartment for up to 4 people. The apartment is completely renovated and it is fully equipped. One double bedroom with a large fitted wardrobe, a living/dinning room (double sofa bed) with modern kitchen and a bathroom. All the appliances -oven-microwave, fridge, washing-machine,etc- are brand new. The apartment also has air-conditioning and heating heat pump- HD TV and ADSL internet. Guests also can enjoy the sea breeze thanks to its two balconies and large windows.
The apartment is on the 4th floor, so bear in mind if you are carrying heavy luggage.
Minimum stay is 2 days. It shows 6 but it is wrong and the program is not changing, sorry.

La Barceloneta is located in the centre of Barcelona, an area that remained almost uninhabited until the seventeenth Century, when the first fishermen settled in its narrow streets. Currently, la Barceloneta still retains that village air, alien to the stressful city life. Here is where traditional bars and fresh food markets meet the best and most modern hotels and restaurants. The area enjoys pharmacies, bakeries and shops and is only 2 minutes from the market where you can buy fresh fruits, vegetables, fish, meats, etc.

Barceloneta beach, known as “The best urban beach”, is lively night and day, full of restaurants and bars on the sand. But La Barceloneta is not only the place to visit for those who love paella and fresh fish. La Barceloneta also attracts water sports enthusiasts, and its promenade invites skaters, joggers, bike-riders, always with the sea as background.
In La Barceloneta there is also the Catalan History Museum and in El Port Vell, the portion of land Barcelona stole to the sea, you will find not only trendy shops and restaurants but also de IMAX cinemas and the largest Aquarium in Europe, where you can walk amongst the sharks and your little ones will enjoy themselves in Explora, the interactive activities reproducing the marine ecosystem.
Barceloneta is the best starting point to get to know the city by foot or public transport. From Barceloneta you have an easy walk to the centre, Born, Cathedral or Las Ramblas. Plenty of buses stop in its central road, Paseig Joan de Borbó, and L4 (yellow) metro is also at the entrance of the neighbourhood. The Golondrinas, traditional boats, will take you for a tour around the Harbour whilst the Aerial Tramway to the mountain of Monjuic is an exciting ride to the Amusement Park and the Old Fortress.
Where the old meet the modern, a cosmopolitan neighbourhood that still smells of salt, that is La Barceloneta.

You can use bus or underground to get to know the city from Barceloneta or...you can ride a bike. You will find plenty of places to rent your bike nearby. One of them is yelp, but you can easily find different sites when you look for rent a bike in Barcelona. Remember, you will be in Barceloneta, so choose a place in the area, it always be easy for you to return it.

I would like to add that for a week (twice cleaning services) the cleaning was not done for the usual people. They were going on holidays and I was forced to used somebody else. I would like to mention it because the flat was always immaculated and for once I received not such a good reviews and it was coinciding with that change on cleaning people. I went back to the usual staff and I am sure you will be as happy as the other 21 guests staying at home!

  • This is a small but very fresh apartment centrally located in Barceloneta. A good thing is that there are two balconies. The people who take care of it are very friendly and flexible. We have had a very good time here!

  • It was our first experience staying in apartment and we were a bit worried. But this apartment had become our home for 9 days in September 2013 and we have never regretted our choice.

    PROS: The apartment is perfect for couple – small, but cozy. It is equipped with everything you can possibly need. Wonderful location – close to sea and tourist center, streets are full of nice bars and restaurants. Subway station is not far away, as well as local market. Apartment’s price is very reasonable. Theresa was very kind letting us check out almost at midnight.

    CONS: The apartment wasn’t cleaned very well, shower’s drain hole was full with hairs, someone’s nail was lying on the bathroom’s floor… Therefore right after checking in I had to pick up a mop and cleaning supplies :( So I suggest to pay more attention to the cleaning.

    Overall it was a nice experience. I would highly recommend this apartment!

  • Very nice apartment in a lovely area near from the Barceloneta beach. Clean and modern with two small balconies. The apartment is perfect for two people. Many restaurants and groceries near from the building. Matthew was really helpful and everything was so easy and flexible!

  • As this was our first every stay with Air BnB, both my partner and myself were a little nervous however our host Teresa and her caretaker Matthew made the experience very easy and comfortable. Upon arriving to Barcelona it was necessary for us to obtain a Sim Card for our phone to communicate with our caretaker via text msg. For those without global roaming like our selves, you can purchase an Orange Prepaid Sim card from terminal 2 of the Barcelona airport at the Tobacconist. Passport must be shown. We caught a taxi from the airport to the flat which cost approximately 25Euro and took 20 - 30mins. The flat is located in a working class area and close to the main city beach. It can be noisy at night time with local bars only a walk away. The flat is clean, recently renovated, with adequate facilities, air conditioning and large shower and bathroom area. Also contained for use is a washing machine along with two balconies to dry clothes on. Also included is WiFi. Flat is a short walk to Bon (10 mins) or to the Gothic Area of Barcelona and to Las Rambla (20 Mins). Metro station Barcelonetta is a 5 min walk linking you to the yellow line. Beware of pickpockets on the metro. There are also plenty of local markets and supermarkets nearby. The experience was fantastic as it was nice to feel part of this rich and vibrant community. Flat is located on the third floor and accessible via a narrow staircase, may be difficult with bulky or heavy luggage.

  • Perfect location for holidays between sandy seaside and points of interest in Barcelona. There is the safety district with good neighbors, cute taverns and wonderful market with fresh seafood and fruits. Apartment was very comfortable and had all that we need. We say thanks to Maite and Metthew for their hospitality!

  • The places is one minute from the best beach of Barcelona. Apartment is just perfect and modern. Communication was very easy, and the neighbor next door was here to help and provide great advices.

    So, considering the price, the location, and the kindness of the people you'll be dealing with, it's probably one if the best apartement on air bnb Barcelona.

    We rent for one week, and next time we'll return, we'll try to rent this same flat once more.

    :-) the five star rating is well deserved. Thanks again for everything !

  • What a great apartment and location! It gave us an authentic Barceloneta experience and being so close to the beach was a huge bonus in the July heat. The apartment was clean and bright with fresh, colourful decor. We enjoyed the views from the balconies into the narrow streets below. The area is lively and there are plenty of convenience stores,bakeries and restaurants nearby. The apartment had everything we needed and we appreciated the air conditioning! Be warned, there is a bit of a climb up to the third floor but the narrow winding staircase only added to our excitement. I would highly recommend this apartment and our host, Teresa, who made the whole transaction and experience run so smoothly

About
I am from Barcelona, in Barceloneta, but I lived away the last 20 years.- I adore my city but I left to study in England and then....I travelled for my studies over Latin America. Once I finished my PhD at Nottingham University in UK, I went to leave in Jamaica for 7 years with my then 6 months child. I was there lecturing at the University of West Indies. We came back to Spain a few months ago and now, we live in Mallorca I still enjoy traveling, as I did all my life, and I understand travelers very well. I speak different languages (inside and outside the house) and I have learned from different cultures which help me to integrate anywhere. So...I hope to be a good host!
