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.
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!!
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.
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!!!
NOTE: check in time 15:00, check out 12:00. Check ins after 20:00 will be charged 20€ extra. Check out in the afternoon/evening, when possible are charged with 20 € extra

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!
The flat is as good as shown on photos. Very clean and tidy. Close to metro station and shops. The host is very helpful and always response well to our queries.
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!
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!!
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.
This is the final rate, including any fees from the host and Airbnb.
