About this listing
A sunny flat in a very quiet street, in the heart of the old city. This spacious, sunny, cosy flat is a real home for you to make yourself comfortable after a day around the city, in a hip neighbourhood full of bars, shops, galleries and restaurants.
Quick note: I had to create a new listing to make the price lower (!) so to see the reviews for this house, check the reviews below listed for "other properties" :)
A fun, large, bright apartment in an ideal location - central but quiet - filled with personality, great design, retro furniture and an arty vibe, for people who want to experience the real Barcelona.
This flat is comprised of a very large, 40m2 living/dining room with a breakfast galleria and a balcony. Full of sun all day long, it's quiet and light and perfect for meals and relaxing with a glass of wine in the afternoon. In addition to this space, there is a large open kitchen which is fully equipped, and a bathroom with bath and shower and an extra toilet.
There is a large quiet room with a king size bed, and a slightly smaller room with double bed. The flat would be ideal for two couples or a family.
This beautiful sunny apartment is situated 2 minutes from Barcelona's Cathedral. In a quiet area right in the historic centre of Barcelona, just 10 minutes walk to the city's beaches and a stone's throw from Barcelona's most historic monuments, museums and art galleries, the apartment is an ideal place from which to explore Barcelona.
The neighbourhood, El Born, is the best place to eat the fantastic local cuisine and explore boutique shopping, gourmet restaurants and charming pavement cafes.
Situated in a quiet, relaxed neighbourhood the flat is right next to one of Barcelona's most beautiful food markets - Mercat Santa Catarina, and 2 minutes from the closest metro stations.
If you're coming to visit our city for a couple of nights, or for a longer stay, I think you'll really enjoy the ambiance and location of my apartment. It's very sunny, clean and peaceful.
While visiting the apartment, I am happy to help you with anything you might need to know about the city. I'm an English guy living and working in Barcelona and I love the city. I always really enjoy showing people around and recommending hidden treasures I've discovered over the years. I also know what it's like to visit a city and enjoy the balance of a good host who's not over bearing! I believe that the beauty of airbnb is avoiding the generic hotel experience but still having the chance to discover the city on your own terms. For me that's an important balance and I'm happy to help people with their stay here as much or as little as they like.
You'll be welcomed with cold drinks, clean towels and a smile. See you soon!
Rules are simply the basics:
Be respectful and reasonably clean, and try to bear in mind that we sleep well because the neighbourhood is fairly quiet. We try to keep the music level doen late at night and not make too much noise at unsociable hours.
Smoking is allowed, but ideally on the balcony or with the windows open.
