The Space

Welcome to Barcelona!!

This appartment is located in the very center of the city, 5 min. walk to plaza Universidad and Plaza Catalunya where you can find the airport Bus. The closest Metro station would be "Sant Antoni"(L3_Green) and "Universitat"(L3_Green, L1_Red) and there are many buses and bike rental shops in the area.

This cozy appartment has a bedroom (with a doble bed) and a living room with a doble sofa bed, so it acomodates up to four people, although it's more convenient for two, since the 3rd and 4th person would be sleeping in the living room. It has a small kitchen equipped with everything needed to cook and eat. It has a hall entrance with a wardrob to keep all your clothes tidy, a small patio (with a small table and two chairs) and a bathroom with shower, which is located out in the patio (old school). In the living there is a TV . The appartment is provided with linen for the bed and the sofa-bed and towels.

Fast speed Internet WI-FI 20Mb with no extra cost!

The location is great, being the street a small pedestrian street, only one min to the MACBA museum. The area is full of restaurants with nice terraces and bars. Supermarket and other facilities are also very close by. This bohemian part of the old center of Barcelona is well known for the art galeries and atéliers of upcoming artists. You can also walk to las Ramblas or Plaza Catalunya in only 5 or 10 min.

I hope you really enjoy your stay in both the appartment and the city, with all it has to offer!

==========================================

DIRECTIONS TO THE APARTMENT:
coming from/to the airport is really easy.

AIRPORT PICK UP:
Get a lift from the airport directly to the apartment for only 20€ (25€ after 8pm). I provide this service with my private car or with a friend of mine when I don't have the time. It's the easiest and fastest way to get to the apartment and when you are 2 oe 3 people it's almost the same price than taking the aerobus and the metro. Ask for availability!!

BUS:
The cheapest way is to take the bus, if you are one or two people (blue modern buses with AEROBUS written at the sides, costs 5,90€) that you will find in both T1 or T2 at the airport. That bus leaves you in Plaza Universitat (just ask the driver or check on the screen to know where to jump off the bus) and from there you only have to walk 5 min to the apartment. From the square, walk down the big street named "Ronda Sant Antoni" and after 100m take the first turn, that slights left towards a pedestrian street named "Joaquim Costa". Calle Tigre is the second street to your right, and number 15 is right there. Travel time from the airport to the apartment should be around 1h or 1h 15', depending how long you have to wait for the bus.

TAXI:
If you are several people, you might considering the possibility of taking a cab. That would drive you straight to the apartment in about 20 min and should cost beetween 35 and 40€. I remind you the address: Calle del Tigre, número 15.

  • My family and I stayed in Barcelona for four nights and we had a pleasant stay! Malin was quick to reply with our enquiries. The best part about the apartment was its location, very convenient to walk to the metro or even to La Ramblas area. Though the apartment was on the small side (there were four of us), it had everything we needed. Clean and good WiFi as well! Would recommend to those wishing for a convenient area and would not mind an apartment on the small side.

  • We fell in love with Barcelona!! And this location made it all the better. We walked to everything but the metro is right down the street if needed. Malin was very kind and helped us through our stay with questions we had and was quick to reply. I was thrilled about all the bakeries and restaurants nearby. It was nice that the area was not over ran by tourists but that we could walk to the sites whenever we wanted! Great WiFi too! We will be back soon!!

  • I was here for three nights with my girlfriend. It was great! Our flight arrived at midnight and it was no problem. Malin's husband picked us up and drove us straight to the front door:)

    The apartment is smaller than I thought from the pictures, but it's very very cozy:) We loved it:)

    We met both Malin and her husband. And their baby daughter. Lovely people:)

    The only advice I can give, is that if you are a large person you might have trouble in the shower. It's on the small side:)

  • Our hosts were fantastic. They helped organise us getting to the apartment and were always prompt at responded to queries whilst we were organising the trip. They gave helpful advice about where to go out in the local area too. The area around the department is a fabulous part of the city to stay in. There were lots of interesting bars and restaurants and easy walk from the apartment and it was also very central to major tourist attractions in the city. The description and photos of the apartment are accurate. The apartment itself was certainly cozy, as described, and was well kept and clean. It was also true that you could not hear noise from the street. However, because all of the windows in the apartment open into other parts of the apartment block (and not outside), there was a lot of noise from other apartments and from people entering and leaving the apartment block which could be heard and the limited ventilation did sometimes effect our ability to sleep well.

  • We've stayed in the appartment of Albert & Malin for one week. We've had a pleasant stay. The appartment was very clean and cosy. It was a little bit small but big enough for 3 adults on a city trip. When you walk out of the appartment you'll feel immidiatly in Barcelona with its characteristic alleys. As the name says, it is in de heart of the center. It takes only 5 minutes to walk to the nearest metro station or to the Ramblas. The communication with Albert & Malin was very good. When we asked something we received almost immidiatly an answer.
    Thanks Albert & Malin

  • L'accueil d'Albert a été très agréable! Chaleureux, ponctuel et fiable et prêt à rendre service.
    Les fenêtres de l'appartement ont la particularité de ne pas accéder directement vers l'extérieur mais l'une vers le hall d'entrée, et la deuxième dans une petite cour intérieur, il n'est donc pas très lumineux et plutôt petit.
    Dans le même temps, il est calme, bien aménagé, très propre, parfait pour un séjour peu coûteux , et où la majeure partie du temps est occupé par les visites de la ville.
    Il est très bien situé, tout le centre de la ville est facilement accessible à pied.
    Je garde l'adresse pour la prochaine fois et vous la recommande!

  • Fantastic location and even better hosts! And the pick up and drop off for a reasonable fee made our whole visit so easy! Funky, bohemian apartment in the center of everything. Has everything we needed and only a short flight up to the apt. A very compact euro apartment. Best for two, but we crammed in two kids on the sofa bed, and no problems. Will visit this apartment again! Thanks M and I!

  • We only met Albert who is very nice and helpful and replied very quickly via airbnb also while our stay. The apartment was clean. What the pictures do not tell you is that the windows in this appartment do not actually provide direct fresh air or daylight. The kitchen window faces into the stairwell of the building, the windows in the hall and living room face the little patio which is in a kind of back yard with really high walls and a glass roof on top. We were unlucky to have a few rainy days while our stay which led to a little puddle on the patio and in the bathroom which can be removed easily with the mob provided.

About
Hola! Malin and I met in Stockholm more than 10 years ago and we have been friends ever since. Now we both live in BCN and together with Immanuel (Malin's husband) we offer 7 very centric nice apartments in BCN city center at a very affordable price. We love to travel and we use Airbnb most of the times when we do. That's the reason we really make an effort to make sure you are having a comfortable, enjoyable stay in our apartments and in this vibrant city that has so much to offer. Starting by picking you up with our private car at the airport, to writting a little personalized mini-guide for each of the apartments with recomendations of where to eat or where to go, to anything you might need and we can help you with. I, personally, am the kind of person who likes to chat and be with friends. I shared appartment with many people since I left home to go to London and Stockholm, to study and work. I think that sharing your space is a very enrichment experience where you get to know other people, other way to look at things. You allways get to learn something new. Like food; now some of my favourite things are "köttbullar" (swedish meatballs) or Marmite on toast with butter. You can see it in my lisitings, there is one room in the big apartment I live in BCN with 2 other friends that is available for short stays. Malin, also loves socializing with people and has two other bedrooms available for you in her own home where she lives with her husband and her little baby girl. I long to meet you and advise you about how to make the best of my beautiful city, Barcelona, that will make you fall in love with it's arquitechture, night live and so much more. Malin and myself will do all we can for you to have a wonderful stay in our apartments. See you soon! Albert and Malin
