Número d'inscripció: HUTB(phone number hidden)
This 76-m2, recently renovated apartment has two large bedrooms, each one with a double bed, a wardrobe, a desk and lots of natural light. There is also a heating /air conditioning system in each room, plus a radiator in the bathroom.
The sitting room has a sofa-bed, a dinner table with six chairs and a led-TV with a USB connection. We also have a telephone with which you can make local calls for free and receive all kinds of calls. The kitchen is fully equipped with washing machine, dishwasher, microwave, oven, plus kettle, toaster and all kind of kitchenware.
There are three balconies, two of them with a view of the modernist Sant Antoni Market. The building has a lift. The wedge shape of this apartment gives it a lot of character, as there are not two parallel walls in the whole place.
Sant Antoni is a very central neighborhood, right on the edge of the old city, at a stone’s throw of everything worth visiting, and with the advantage of being quiet at night time. Las Ramblas is only 15 minutes away by foot and you can walk to Plaza de Espanya, with its trade fair, in only 10 minutes. There are also two metro stations nearby, Sant Antoni (Line 2) and Poble Sec (Line 3), both very convenient to visit other parts of the city like the Sagrada Familia and Camp Nou. And good bus lines will take you speedily right to the seafront and beaches, if you don’t care to walk. There are all sorts of shops (including health food ones) and supermarkets in the surrounding streets, together with the market stalls, so you won’t have to walk more than 150 meters to shop for fresh or packaged food. And certainly there is no lack of nice cafés, wine bars and restaurants in the vicinity.
Apart from the two double beds and the sofa-bed, I have a foldable single bed which can be placed in any of the rooms.
I have also a travel cot, a baby bath and a high chair for babies.
Families are most welcome. I can provide you with a number of of toys, games and kid books, in Spanish and English, for the children.
I can be totally flexible about arrival and departure times if there is no one else arriving or leaving the same day of your departure or arrival. For example, you can stay longer that 12 am if there is no one coming that day in the afternoon. Or you can leave your luggage with me if that is the case and your flight is not until later that day. Whatever the case, check with me and we'll find a solution.
Also, late night arrivals shouldn't be a problem.
No parties that disturb the neighbours. If you smoke, please do it on any of the balconies while enyoing the view.
Inaki met us at the apartment and was so helpful. He gave us directions around town, maps, and showed us the bus directions to the beach and which metro stations to use. The location was great for all our travels around Barcelona. The apartment was so spacious and comfortable. We would love to visit Spain again and would recommend this host. He also helped us order a Taxi for our early morning airport departure. Perfect...
Superbe appartement moderne, bien équipé et situé!! L'hôte a été très sympathique et nous a bien accueilli. Nous recommandons fortement cet appartement.
Iñaki was waiting for us when we arrived and was incredibly helpful, just as he had been since the time we had booked the apartment. He gave us lots of helpful information about getting around, restaurants, sights to see, etc.
Iñaki and Cathy's flat was the perfect place for me and friends' long weekend in Barcelona.
Clean, fresh and airy, the flat is spacious and ideal for two couples (as we were) sharing the space with a relaxing lounge and kitchen space dividing the two bedrooms. The location is perfect if you want to explore the city by foot - 10 minutes away from the Gothic part of town, 20/25 minutes from Barceloneta and the beach - or a 3 minute walk to the nearest Metro station.
Iñaki was brilliant in giving us full directions prior to our visit, and leaving guide books and helpful maps in the flat to aid our stay. A wonderfully recommended flat and host - I can't wait to return next year!
I stayed at Inaki and Cathy's place with my parents and we had a wonderful time. Inaki was there to meet us and also let us check in early too. He provided us with some really useful tips along with an Eyewitness guide that we found really handy. The apartment is really spacious, but homely at the same time. There were three of us, but it would be very comfortable for more people. There is a lovely lounge area and well equipped kitchen too. I would definitely recommend the apartment and would certainly stay here again. Thanks Inaki for your hospitality!
We were very pleased about Inakis Appartment me and my two friends visting Barcelona for two days. Everything is in awalking distance. Nice views from the windows. A kind and helpfull host what do you want more? Woud love to saty there once more!
Staying in such a lovely apartment was the icing on the cake for our trip to Barcelona! The apartment is spacious, clean, very nice design (exactly like in the pictures) and everything we needed was there. The location is very convenient, you can easily walk to the city centre and it was easy to get there from the airport as the bus stop is close by. We also really liked the neighbourhood, there are some nice little cafés and bars in the area. Inaki and Cathy are great hosts. They replied quickly to our questions before the trip and gave us some recommendations for restaurants when we arrived. I highly recommend this apartment and would definitely stay there again.
