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.

Offering a special "viajeros" Price of only 7 €uros per day !!!!!!
Interaction with Guests

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 !!

Studio très propre et confortable, il est situé à cinq minutes d'une station de métro, bien équipé, idéal pour deux personnes, connexion Internet super rapide. L'appartement n'est pas situé au centre de Barcelone (6-7 stations de métro du centre mais 2 stations de la gare centrale). Par contre, le quartier est très calme, très sécuritaire et on y trouve de tout (restos, pâtisseries, boucheries, etc.).
Nadine est une hôtesse avenante qui s'assure que nous sommes confortables et que nous manquons de rien, la communication est super facile.
Bref, nous avons adoré notre séjour...
Nadine war sehr sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit.sie hatte immer ein offenes Ohr für uns und erkundigte sich jeden abend nach uns. Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt. Sie ist eine tolle Person. Barcelona selber war der Wahnsinn und wir empfehlen das jedem weiter. Die Wohnung lag sehr zentral zu einer u-bahn Station von dort aus kam man schnell Überfall hin. Es war echt toll.
Ein herzliches Willkommen durch Nadine, viele tolle Tips erhalten. Sehr gute Lage. Schnell im Zentrum mit der U-Bahn und am Flughafen mit dem Aerobus. Gute Einkaufsmöglichkeiten in der Nachbarschaft (Supermarkt, Bäcker, Spätis usw.). Das Appartment ist ebenerdig mit leider wenig Tageslicht. Die Ausstattung ist gut, wenn auch teilweise etwas verwohnt. Ziemlich steile Treppe zum Hochbett. Die Sauberkeit könnte verbessert werden. Gutes W-Lan, guter Digital TV (leider nur spanische Sender gefunden) und DVD.
Nadine welcomed us and encouraged us to call her if we needed anything. The studio was located in a quiet area, and close to two Metro stations, so very handy for exploring the city. The district felt safe, and was quiet at night. We did have a concern about accessing the sleeping area (mezzanine) via a fixed set of steps, and without windows to the outside, a little stuffy for us personally. I could not describe the studio as modern, and it is undoubtedly basic, however, probably good value for money in Barcelona.
나딘은 정~말 쿨한 호스트였어요. 체크인시 집에대한 설명과함께 바르셀로나에서 저에게 필요한 많은 자료를 챙겨주고, 더필요한게 있으면 언제든 얘기하라고 말해주었죠.
집은 사진에서 보는 그대로이구요.. 다만 생각지 못했던 점이 하나있다면, 집이 복도끝에 위치하고있어서 창문이 있어도 해가 비치지않습니다. 낮인지 밤인지 구분이 안가요.. 그리고 주방은, 특히 커피포트는 있긴하지만 사용할수 없을정도로 낡고 위생적이지 못했어요
그외에는 지내는동안 전혀 불편함이 없었답니다!
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 :)
