About this listing

The space

HELLO!
My name is Gabriella, and I’ve got a newly renovated flat in central Barcelona for your holiday here!
I rent a double bedroom with en-suite bathroom and access and use to the whole flat.
The room measures 20 m2, it has a double sized bed, private bathroom with bath tub, wardrobe, heating and fan in summer, there is an exterior balcony to Gran Via and enjoys plenty of light.
In the bathroom, of course, hot water is available 24 hours a day.
I provide clean towels and bed lines.
The apartment is on the first floor (although really a second floor because of the "principal") and there’s also a lift.
The flat is very nice, spacious, bright and well kept. It has a totally equipped kitchen and you are welcome to prepare your own meals at home, a spacious and comfortable living room with a balcony above the street and a lot of natural light, one bathroom and two rooms besides the one that I rent. All the balconies are double glazed to protect from noise of the street.
I live with a cat (I specifics here because it has been the case that, even if indicated in the characteristics of the housing, some guests did not realize that there is cat at home and this of course, can be a problem for those who are allergic or do not like animals).

Wifi is available.

The place is comfortable and it is to be shared just with me and you are very welcome to enjoy and use all the common areas in the house.

LOCATION:
The location of flat is very central, in the Example area, in the city center, just one block to Plaza Cataluña and really close to any interesting places within walking distance.
It is really a strategic accommodation because the area is surrounded by metro and bus services, but the central location gives the possibility to have access to any interesting places on foot. And most of the other districts of interest (El Born, Barrio Gótico, Barceloneta, El Raval) and major sights of Barcelona such as Passeig de Gracia, Plaza Cataluña, the works of Gaudi, Las Ramblas, Sagrada Familia, park of Montjuic, Picasso Museum and Barceloneta beach are located within a short walking distance from the flat (approx. 10-20 minutes).
-5 minutes walk to Plaza Cataluña and to the Ramblas.
-one block to Passeg de Gracia where you can visit casa Battlo (10 minutes walking) and La Pedrera (15 minutes walking)
-10 minutes walking to the Palau de la Musica.
-from here you can easily reach the most characteristic districts of the city, The Gotic or the Born district. There’s also easy access to public transportation to get to the Park Guell, to the beach or to the Montjuic, if you don’t want to go on foot.
It is a privileged position to reach the airport because in Cataluña Square there is the airport bus stop, even the night line, to and from the airport.
The nearest underground stations are: Passeo de Gracia (one block) L4 yellow and L2 purple line and Cataluña L3 green and L1 red line.
And if at night you miss the last underground train, there are plenty of night bus stops close by which cover mostly all city bus routes.
Furthermore, if at the end of a day spent to discover the architectural and cultural city you are tired, you can enjoy a relaxing and rejuvenating Ayurvedic massage or just to recharge your energy with one session of reflexology. I am an ayurvedic masseuse and, depending on my working appointments, will be available for a massage after a day of sightseeing.
So if you want to stay in a beautiful, comfortable, central place this is the better solution for you.


Check-In time is 12noon and Check-Out at 10 am., but timetable is flexible if there aren’t guests immediately before/after you, and we can make arrangements and, you are welcome to leave your luggage before Check-In and/or after Check-Out.
Inviting non-guests into the apartment is not permitted, for your safety and mine.
Please keep in mind that there are neighbors around and to secure a peaceful living together, please keep the volume at a tolerable level, especially between 11pm-7am.
Please, no smoking in the flat. Smoking is allowed outside on the balcony.

Arriving by plane, you can take the airport bus which goes straight from the terminal(T1 or T2) to Plaza Cataluña. From there you can either walk two blocks or take a taxi if you like it comfortable.
Or if you prefer, and if it’s possible, we can make arrangements to come and meet you in Plaza Cataluña.

I’m an Italian girl, I speak English, Spanish and Italian and I’ll be happy to help you in anything you need, included touristic information.
I would like to make your experience in Barcelona pleasant. I can help you to arrange your stay here both for the places to visit such as restaurants, transports, museums etc.
I’ll be very happy to make your stay in my home and in Barcelona memorable for you.
If You have any question, please don’t hesitate to ask. I'll reply as soon as possible.
Please feel free to contact me if you want to know more about the apartment or myself and anything else you need to know. I'll be pleased to answer you!
I hope to hear from you!

Gabriella's flat is in a great location and we had a very comfortable stay - she made things very easy for us!

Gabriella's place is exactly as described-centrally located( 1 block from the main shopping street and a huge Zara store), comfortable 1930's style building with high ceilings and floor to ceiling windows, even the elevator. What was not described was how helpful and responsive Gabriella is. She was such a delight to work with! I would love to stay with her if I get the opportunity to be in Barcelona again.

This place is five-stars in terms of location and accessibility. From Sagrada Familia to Barri Gothic and La Rambla - everything was walking distance. There are supermarkets and cafes and pharmacies within one block. Mango and other outlets are two blocks away. The bedroom had a wide double bed, cupboard for my clothes, a huge private bathroom with bathtub (and toiletries) and a private balcony overlooking Gran Via. The shared space was nicely decorated and the kitchen was well equipped. There was also a washing machine (that I did not need to use). The apartment is only one floor up and has an elevator - but you still have to pull your luggage up (and down) a set of stairs at the entryway of the building (and there is no ramp) - which was not too bad. Gabriella has a very friendly cat who will take his cue from you and be extra cuddly or aloof. In my case it was the former and I was happy to offer my lap for him to nap while I was at home. Gabriella is a wonderful host and she made sure my check-in and stay was comfortable. She gave me the key two days in advance and helped me carry my bags out the day I was leaving and even saw me into the taxi. She is really the sweetest. I would definitely recommend this place and would not think of staying anywhere else next time I am in Barcelona.

Gabriella goes out of her way to help and make her guests comfortable and welcomed. Her flat is super well located and lovely. Had a lot of privacy when i wanted but also lovely chats with her. Etrusco, her cat, is the cutest thing ever!

The room was very adequate for a lone traveller like myself. The best thing was the location, which was very central and minutes walking distance to bars, restaurants and shops. Gabrielle was a very welcoming and easy going host. I would highly recommend a stay here.

まずロケーションが最高!空港からのバスが泊まるカタルーニャ広場から徒歩で行けて、美味しいレストランもガウディ建築も徒歩圏内。そして嬉しかったのが清潔なバスタブがあったこと。お湯をためて入りフライトの疲れもとれました。猫もかわいく、ガブリエラさんもとても親切で、次にバルセロナに行く際はまた泊まりたいです!
