NEW & LIGHT 3 rooms old town CENTER

Apartment - Entire home/apt · Carrer de les Carretes, Barcelona, Catalonia 08001, Spain

The Space

The combination of old and new makes this appartment a good value place to stay in Barcelona. This recently renovated flat has many details of an old classic Barcelona style appartment with the facilities of a new one. The old wooden beams make a good contrast to a brand new open kitchen.

This appartment has 3 double bedrooms, each of them with a doble bed, a wardrobe and window with natural light. The brand new open kitchen is eqquiped with ceramic hob, oven, tea boiler, refrigerator, freezer and of course all the cutlery, crockery, pots and pans. The living room has a comfy sofa which fits 4 people and a table facing the 47" flat screen TV hanging on the wall. The bathroom has a shower and is provided with towels. The old tiles reinvented as wall-lights combine perfectly with the modern ceiling mounted lights. There is Sun all day long =)

The location is only 2 minutes walk to the subway station "Paralel" (L3, L2) and many local buses. Only 5 min walk leads you to Las Ramblas, the main leisure area in BCN.
The area is vibrant with many bars and cute restaurants, even though the appartment is very quiet..Please keep in mind that it is a 4th floor with no elevator, so not suitable if you can't deal with going up the stairs. Supermarkets, bakery and shops are right around the corner.

DIRECTIONS
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 take the subway (L2 purple Universitat) for two stops to the station Paralel. The apartent is 3 min walk from the tube station. 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 Carretes, número 53.

You will just love it. I'm sure!!!

  • Brilliant little apartment with everything you need whilst visiting beautiful Barcelona. Great location with loads of things to see near the apartment and not too far from more of the typical tourist spots (la ramblas etc.) as well. Clean, tidy and enough space for what we needed. Would most definitely stay here again. Also wi-fi worked just great, hot showers and comfy beds and a great living room to chill out in. Thanks guys

  • Great three days in easy Barcelona. Everything was central, and the weather out on a good show for us - especially Sunday. As always with Barca you have to factor in some losses with the pick-pockets - but nothing A & M can do about that!

  • Thanks for the pleasant stay and the uncomplicated and well functioning pick-up service.
    The apartment is centrally located so that most places of interest were accessible by food. Sure we come back one day.

  • Malin was a fantastic host. The apartment is luminous with a balcony and it was clean and ready when we got there. The place is close to las Ramblas through a very picturesque area. Great experience and highly recommended.

  • Our stay at Albert and Malin's flat in Barcelona was great. The rooms were big and spacios, an we had everything we needed. The location is great, nearby a subway station, and only 10 minutes walk to La Rambla. There is also a supermarket in the area, and some small pubs and cafe's. We recommend staying here!

    March 2014
  • Albert and Malin were great hosts and very easy to communicate with. We got in very late and left very early and they arranged a driver for us to the airport who was prompt and courteous. Their apt was in a fantastic neighborhood, walkable to many things and near to great restaurants, bars, and public transportation.

    Only downside to the place was it seemed much smaller than the pictures, but it was perfect for two of us. There are a lot of stairs, which is stated, so make sure you are in good climbing shape!

  • The apartment is very quiet and it's a good location to visit the old town. Supermarket, restaurants and the metro station are less than 5 minutes away. Albert and Malin are very friendly and helpful. Thanks again for this pleasant stay!

  • Albert and Malin have been very helpful and welcoming for our stay in barcelona. They organised for us to be picked up from the airport late at night and offered to take us back on our departure. The apartment itself is small,cosy and comfortable. It's located in the best spot, super easy to get anywhere. There is a slight smell that would come from the bathroom if we left the door open, that was easily solved by keeping the door shut! The only thing I found a bit inconvenient was that there was no wifi, because me being a young traveller can't seem to live with out my internet. In saying this ,Malin did explain to me that this is in the apartment description. Perfect place to stay for a short visit to barcelona, thanks guys!!

    Response from Albert & Malin:

    Thank you for your comment Kia! We have now contracted highspeed internet with WIFI for the apartment! It was a pleasure to have you as a guest, thank you for everything and welcome back anytime!

  • We stayed Albert & Malin apartment over New Years and had an absolute blast. Malin gave us a warm welcome along with maps and everything we would need for our stay. They had even made a booklet of their favourite restaurants which helped us quite a bit, as you can get caught in the tourists trap and pay too much for a meal near las ramblas.

    The location is great, it is minutes walk to las ramblas and train and bus stations.

    I absolutely loved barcelona and cannot wait to visit this city again and would stay at this apartment again.

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
