About this listing
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 !!!!!!

Its quiet, a bit pittoresque and very familiar.
Authentic and yet very normal neighbourhood.

very safe, and quiet at night !!

Appartement très agréable, un magnifique séjour! Nous regrettons de ne pas avoir pu rencontrer Nadine qui était en vacances, mais nous garderons de très bons souvenirs de ce séjour.
Finding the apartment wasn't hard at all.. We got the aero bus from the airport and got off at the first stop at the big round about.
We could have caught a bus from there, but thought it would be easier to just walk, which took us about 25 minutes.
Once we got to the apartment Barbara (Nadine's mum) met us and showed us the room. She was so lovely. Unfortunately we didn't meet Nadine and actually didn't see either of them again after this as they had gone on holiday, which left us with a few questions in regards to the room with no one there - like using the washing machine and that. Although we figured it out. We also loved the fact the apartment came with a washing machine and dryer!
The room it's self was really cute and well layed out. It had everything you needed, clean towels, plates, fridge, kettle.. It was also super clean and tidy. Although.. It was SO HOT. I ended up sleeping on the couch and drenching myself in water, there is only two windows and they open out to a small enclosed walk way between apartments and didn't let in any fresh or cool air. We got no sleep over the 3 nights and just layed with wet towels over us. I don't mean to sound negative as we both really feel the heat - but for us it was very uncomfortable.
The location of the apartment was ok, we didn't use the buses or trains which are located on the same street of the apartment which I'm sure go straight to the main attractions, as we both love walking. So we walked everywhere and to get near any restaurants / shops it was a minimum 20 min walk.. Although Barbara did tell us about a little restaurant down the end of the street on the right of the apartment. We went there and the owner Suzanna was AMAZING.. Very well priced and she just kept bringing us out traditional tapas, it was a great experience and I would definitely recommend it!
Nadine est très accueillante et l'appartement correspond parfaitement aux photos et très propre. Il est très bien situé, près du métro et dans un quartier tranquille. Et pour la voiture, il y a un parking à 7€/jour juste à côté de l'appartement , c'est top.
Nous recommandons complètement !!
The room wasn't quite ready when we arrived but we were able to leave or bags and find some lunch close by. The room itself was everything we needed, it just got a bit hot. The drain in the bathroom sink was leaking which was a little inconvenient as we couldn't use it. Other than that, decent sized and clean apartment in a good location, close to public transport and places to eat.
Nadine was a great host, and her loft was very cute, functional and very well located, minutes away from a subway station! The apartment is also located to the cheapest secure parking in Barcelona! We would love to stay there again!
un peu de confusion au moment de notre arrivée, mais l'appartement répondait parfaitement à notre attente. Juste le lavabo de la salle de bain qui n'était pas utilisable suite à une rupture de la canalisation. Notre hôtesse a été charmante. Le quartier est situé près du métro, ce qui facilite vraiment les déplacements vers les sites principaux de Barcelone. Petits restos sympa à 5 mn de l'appartement et supérette au coin de la rue!
Nadine powitała nas niesamowicie i była bardzo pomocna podczas naszego przyjazdu. Mieszkanie było bardzo czyste i świetnie przygotowane, w dodatku położone jest w świetnej, bezpiecznej okolicy blisko wielu sklepów i stacji metra. Wystrój jest bardzo komfortowy, a mieszkanie zawiera wszystko co potrzebne, z klimatyzacją włącznie. Polecam osobom, które cenią sobie świetną atmosferę, czystość i prywatność.
