Welcome to the old town of BCN, walking distance to Ramblas or the port and the city beach.
This is a great apartment with a lot of personality, that has been recently renovated in an classic old Barcelonian style building, The renovation has been done with a delightful taste, preserving the original doors, brick walls or ceilings and renewing the whole bathroom and kitchen. There are 3 big doble bedrooms, 2 of them with a light open window or balcony and one with a widow to the interior of the building. It's fully furnished and it has a fuly equiped kitchen where you have everything needed to cook a meal for 6 people. It also has a new big bathroom with a walk in shower. There is a balcony where you can sit and enjoy the sun from 11-12 to 16 during the winter and longer in summer time. There's aircon in the living room that also works as a heater for winter time.
The building is nice, clean and quiet and here's an elevator.
The location is only 2 minutes walk to the subway station "Paralel" (L3, L2) and many local buses. Only 5 min walk leads you to Las Ramblas, the main leisure area in BCN.
The area is vibrant with many bars and cute restaurants, even though the appartment is very quiet, since the balcony is in front of a private open space.. Supermarkets, bakery and shops are just downstairs.
Coming from/to the airport is really easy.
AIRPORT PICK UP:
Get a lift from the airport directly to the apartment for only 20€ (25€ after 8pm). I provide this service with my private car or with a friend of mine when I don't have the time. It's the easiest and fastest way to get to the apartment and when you are 2 oe 3 people it's almost the same price than taking the aerobus and the metro. Ask for availability!!
The cheapest way is to take the bus, if you are one or two people (blue modern buses with AEROBUS written at the sides, costs 5,90€) that you will find in both T1 or T2 at the airport. That bus leaves you in Plaza Universitat (just ask the driver or check on the screen to know where to jump off the bus) and from there you only have to take the subway (L2 purple Universitat) for two stops to the station Paralel. The apartent is 3 min walk from the tube station. Travel time from the airport to the apartment should be around 1h or 1h 15', depending how long you have to wait for the bus.
If you are several people, you might considering the possibility of taking a cab. That would drive you straight to the apartment in about 20 min and should cost beetween 35 and 40€. I remind you the address: Calle Carretes, número 56.
You will just love it. I'm sure!!!
NOTE: check in time 15:00, check out 11:00. Check ins after 20:00 will be charged 20€ extra. Check out in the afternoon/evening, when possible are charged with 20 € extra

Had a wonderfull week in Barcelona and appartment was a great place to rest after a long and emotional day\evening. Great location to travel on foot, even though you may use subway station couple minutes away as well. Hosts were very helpfull and recommendations we've received concerning restaraunts and places to see were incredible! Thank you, everything was as it supposed to be!
Albert and Malin's apartment was fantastic! Great location and size, well decorated and equipped. They were very helpful with our questions and quick to reply. Really good that they offer a pick up service to and from the airport. We also really appreciated their recommendations in terms of restaurants in the area. Would love to stay there again!
Un grand merci à Malin, Manuel et Albert pour leur très bon accueil et vraie sympathie. Notre séjour dans cet appartement était très agréable, simple, bien décoré et très propre. Idéal pour 3-4 jours, chambres et lits confortables, on s'y sent bien tout de suite, on peut aussi y cuisiner facilement, j'adore la salle de bains avec la douche italienne, tadelak, (et la clef porte serviettes très jolie). L'appartement
donne sur une cour calme et lumineuse, avec petite terrasse ( très bien pour les fumeurs). Très bien situé, au centre de Barcelone, à 3 min du métro Para-Lel et tous les bus. proche du centre Quartier Gothic et pas très lojn de la plage de Barceloneta. Nous avons aussi beaucoup apprécié que Manuel très sympa vienne nous chercher à l'Aéroport ce qui nous a fait gagner du temps. Malin nous a bien conseillé aussi sur le choix du restau au coin de la rue que nous recommandons CERA 23 ( très bon. Nous pouvons aussi faire les courses facilement juste en bas chez Dia ou boulangerie dans la rue.
Merci pour ce très bon séjour àn Barcelone.
A big thank you to Malin , Manuel and Albert for their very warm welcome and genuine sympathy. Our stay in this apartment was very nice , simple, well decorated and very clean. Ideal for 3-4 days , rooms and beds comfortable , it feels good right now, it can also be easily cook , I love the bathroom with Italian shower, tadelak (and the key towel very pretty ) . The apartment
overlooks a quiet courtyard with terrace ( great for smokers). Conveniently located in central Barcelona , popular neighborhood, 3 minutes from the Para- Lel metro and all buses . Gothic Quarter near the center and not very long the Barceloneta beach. We also enjoyed very nice Manuel picked up at the airport which saves us time . Malin has also advised us on the choice of the restaurant at the corner of the street we recommend CERA 23 ( very good. We can also make shopping easy just down Dia or bakery down the street. Thanks for a lovely stay at heart of Barcelona.
Good beds, nice atmosphere and all equipment you need for staying even longer periods. Wifi!!
Nice flexible hosts and good location.
Totally worth it :)
El piso está muy bien ubicado, es exactamente igual a las fotos. Recomiendo de todas maneras la estancia donde Albert y Malin, sin duda una muy buena experiencia.
Albert was very quick to reply and very helpful both before and during my stay. He provides an option for pick up from the airport and drop off which I found super nice & handy and affordable especially for my departure which was a bit early. I didn't have a chance to meet Albert but Albert had arranged for someone to meet me there. Immanuel was there at the airport on my arrival and was super nice and helpful. He even left me his umbrella to use for my stay, not to mention there to pick me up early on a Saturday morning- thank you Immanuel!
The apartment was just as the pictures show, clean with plenty of room in the bedrooms and large bathroom and shower area. I was travelling on my own and I found the area that the apartment was in a bit sketchy but that was only at night. If I had been travelling with a friend or friends it would have been fine.
Albert had left some great suggestions for places to go and places to eat with a map to find them and everything. They were super helpful and the restaurants I tried were very good - thank you Albert & Malin Mj!
Alberts apartment is beautifully remodeled, and is located in a great place to explore some of the best areas in Barcelona by foot. We enjoyed it the first time and came back once more when returning to the city. Albert is very helpful, and the option to be picked up at the airport is very nice when traveling with young children as we were. Noise travels easily in the apartments and you can hear your neighbors, but this wasn't a problem for us as we expected some noise being in the city. Gracias Albert!
Awesome customer service. Best we have experienced in 30+ years of traveling throughout Europe. Setting was amenable, washer on site was a plus, and information regarding local shopping for our stay provided an easy transition to "living" in Barcelona. Excellent location with easy access to metro, local services (fruit and vegetable market, bakery, mobile sim provider, and Dia Market) and local restaurants that made us feel welcome and part of the community. Albert, Malin, and Malin's husband, Immanuel, are courteous hosts and go out of their way to support their guests. Good example: We came in two shifts and Albert contacted us regarding our plans for picking up our daughter at the airport versus assuming we'd figure it out. We would definitely return as their guests, if the opportunity presents itself.
Un appartement très sympa, un quartier vivant, tous commerces à 2 pas, un accueil parfait, une très très bonne situation dans Barcelone... Bref une semaine idéale (même pour notre fille de 3 ans)
I stayed here with my boyfriend for 5 days. We loved the apartment its beautifully renovated and has everything you need. The location is perfect literally in the main centre with the Ramblas a 5 minute if that walk. Albert picked us up from the airport and made sure we had everything we needed for our stay.
I will definitely be recommending this apartment to anyone I know visiting Barcelona.
