The Studio is fantastice.
Its like a cute mini house/loft for two people.
With its own and seperate house door it is very private, very cosy, yet modern and also practical.
A perfect little nest and get away for two people who like to spend some quality time together.
It has all the amenities you could possibly need and think of:
where to start...lets see.. cause there is a lot to point out, despite of its rather cosy size :).
*There is a huge beautiful “all in white” Bathroom, with marble floors and a big white bath tub.(hairdryer, adapter, full set of towels/ floormat too)
*The kitchen is new, in bright colors and American Open Style , equally totally equipped with a new 4 pieces vitroceramic hotplate and a big supply of all kitchentools and tableware.
You can cook really nice meals in there in case you like staying in sometimes to
enjoy the delights of fresh mediterranean food you buy at "Mercat Nou" (recently fully renovated and rather impressive market a few streets away) or at Lidl (best and most economic supermarket at 5 mns)..or at one of the many fruit&veg shops (incredibly cheap) at the next corner.
*You will appreciate a good and quiet sleep in the generous and comfortable High Bed (King Size) , the ceiling is abt 4 meters high.
Duvet, bed linnen, pillows..the bed is freshly made up upon arrival.
You can jump inside for a little nap right away if you are jet lagged or simply in the mood ;)
The apartment can host up to 2 people and is perfect for couples.
*We are situated in a quiet, friendly and non-touristic , very authentic neighbourhood which was just modernized and redone entirely.
The entire zone is basically pedestrian área, no annoying traffic noise..or full streets.
It is very peaceful, authentic, familiar and definately safe.
Neighbours know neighbours here..shop owners are still the same then 6 years ago...that makes the área much more personal..with a real touch of living between the locals, very different to what you would get if allocated in the very city centre.
* Transport: we are next to the most central Metro line in Barcelona, “la Linea Roja” and The metro station is literally 2 minutes walking distance from our door. (doesnt produce any noise at all).
It will take you to Plaza Espanya in 5 minutes and to Plaza Catalunya in 10 minutes, no changes at all
(T10 ticket costs 10.30 € and is valid for 10 journeys in all public transports within BCN city - even until Casteldefels Playa or Sitges (South) or Badalona (North)..towards direction costa Brava.
*Our neighborhood has a great infrastructure, there are various veg and fruit shops around, the closest supermarket is directly on the next corner (30 seconds), the next LIDL supermarket only a 5 minutes walk equally. There is a nice little square just next to the house with typical spanish cafes and Bars and also a playground for children.
*Parking : Below the "plaza" is a big and spacious surveilled 3 floors parking house offering a fantastic deal..unique in BCN:
a special "Viajeros" rate at 7 €uros per day
( in the city centre 22 € or more)
*There is also of course free WLAN Access (50 megas), a Plasma TV (with language options-we have digital tv here) where you can connect your laptop to.
We also share a washing machine AND dryer on the corridor, which makes it very comfortable to wash and dry clothes, towels and more.
*I am living with my two little and really sweet and cuddly cats Snopy and Nata in the apartment just next door, which is the last one at the end of the corridor.
I will be more than happy to assist you in any possible matter, give you tips for nice places, restaurants and bars, secluded beaches, or nice ways for walks through Barcelona.

Its quiet, a bit pittoresque and very familiar.
Authentic and yet very normal neighbourhood.
People who own places or shops here have been here for years, people know eachother. It is a pleasant contrast to the anonymous city center attitude sometimes,
very safe, and quiet at night !!

My friend and I stayed here for a 4 night stay in Barcelona. We are two young ladies and felt very safe in the neighbourhood and loved the place.
It had everything as described and Nadine was very helpful and prompt in responding.
Nadine made us feel very welcome even prior to our arrival, checking in with our arrival time and directing us to a super little tapa bar just down the road to meet her. Also we had a late train on our day of check out and Nadine was great about letting us stay so we didn't have to walk the streets of Barcelona killing time before the departure!!
The apartment is described very accurately, being clean and tidy with kitchen amenities and good wifi and it was really nice to have some fresh fruit on arrival too.
The neighbourhood felt safe and with 2 metro lines close by made it really easy to get around Barcelona.
Thank you Nadine for your hospitality and it was lovely to meet you :)
Nadine is a lovely, friendly lady. She gave us many information brochures. House is very close to the Metro. It is quite and safe place.
The only thing about studio, it has no windows to the open air, windows are opening to the corridor. Otherwise price is really good for Barcelona...
We stayed in Nadine's loft for 4 days during our holidays in Barcelona. We've had already been in Barcelona before but we felt we still had a lot to explore in the city! The loft was very cozy and comfortable: it had everything we needed to enjoy our stay and was clean and organised when we arrived. Nadine was very nice, helpful and hospitable! The apartment is really close to the Santa Eulalia Metro station (a 4-minutes-walk) which helped us to visit every place in Barcelona and coming back home quickly and without spending a lot of money. Thank you for having us Nadine!
Unsere Zeit in Barcelona war sooo toll! Bei Nadine haben wir uns wohl gefühlt. Sie ist eine super Gastgeberin mit Leib und Seele. Die Bleibe ist perfekt für einen City Trip. Vielen lieben Dank! :-)
Sehr nettes Studio mit einer sehr guten Anbindung an das öffentliche Verkehrssystem. Nadine ist freundlich und hilfsbereit - dafür VIELEN DANK !!!!! Barcelona und diese Unterkunft werden wir gerne weiterempfehlen.
I stayed in BCN for christmas holiday. Nadine welcomed us with her two adorable cats. She is very nice and easy going for everything :)
The room was exactly same as pictures. It was little bit humid for me somehow but it didn't bother us at all! There was everything that we needed. Towels, hair dryer, cooking tools, cutlery, microwave, electronic pot and etc.. And high speed wifi :D Comfortable bed and extremly comfortable couch!
Oh, and I really liked bathroom. It's clean and bright ;)
I would like to stay here again when I visit BCN!!!
