About this listing
Modernista Rooms in downtown Eixample, just a block from Passeig de Gracia and Gaudís Casa Batlló. This is a great base for exploring the city on foot. If you want a cool urban room in an impressively designed Barcelona apartment, look no further!
Hello, this bedroom is part of a huge apartment with three private Airbnb rooms. A fourth bedroom is inhabited by a friend of mine who takes care of the place in the mornings.
Urban and chic, the double bedroom boasts light and comfortable space with an original Barcelona tag on the wall. It is street facing on the 3rd floor with a little balcony overlooking one of Barcelona´s most exclusive and central avenues.
This is a friendly and international apartment welcoming singles, couples (gay-friendly included), friends or business travellers who want a perfect and central base for getting around town.

The apartment is lovely, very clean and has interesting design. The location is very convenient to shopping, walking and going out. I found very good bars close me. Zara responded quickly and kept in contact with me. Cris and Alex helped me very much!!! Thanks!!! Really good neighborhood- hello everybody!:) amazing apartment! Loved it!
This is a great apartment, a lovely room, a friendly atmosphere, and in a terrific location. For convenience and centrality, it doesn't get much better than this for Barcelona. The room is also spacious and comfortable, and exactly like the photos (down to the towels waiting on the bed). The balcony lets in lots of fresh air, and even though it was early August, I was not too hot (note: there was a small table fan next to the bed, which also helps). The room was a bit noisy due to the street below, but it was a Friday night, a major party weekend, and I went to bed "early" (midnight) because I had a flight the next morning. Regardless, the room comes with a bowl full of earplugs just in case, so I slept fine. The overall apartment was very clean and has great amenities, and both Alex and Zarita were very nice and friendly. Although I was only there a day, would have happily stayed for much longer.
The room made us feel like home. There were kitchen, living room and everything we needed in Barcelona. Also the location is very good!
Wir haben wunderbare Tage in der Wohnung von Zarita verbracht, schon bei Ankunft waren wir begeistert, herrlich kreativ und originell eingerichtet, wir wurden herzlich empfangen und es war alles da, was das Herz begehrt, die Wohnung liegt super zentral in einer wunderschönen Gegend mit netten Cafés und Fussnähe zu den Ramblas, Gothicviertel, Raval..., halt mittendrin, perfekt, wir freuen uns schon auf eine neue Gelegenheit nach Barcelona zu kommen!!!
Wonderful place in Barcelona! I never got the chance to meet Zara as she was not available.
We were checked in by Alex, who was lovely and was very helpful. The room was beautiful and everything you need was provided.
It is a perfect area to say in Barcelona as everything is either in walking distances or a short taxi away. It is also nice for solo travels as there are other travels staying that you can meet up with.
Had a wonderful time and would come back!
We never met Zara, but she was in constant contact via email with us and always responded almost immediately!
Alex greeted us when we arrived and showed us around the beautiful aprartment. He was friendly and helpful and even allowed us to through in a couple of items with his own laundry. I had a few early morning chats with him, which is what I most treasure with a bnb: home-like comfort and conversation. he was super flexible in allowing us to leave our bags and pick them up whenever on our last day.
The room is exactly as desribed. The bed was quite comfortable. We had lots of space and a lovely view of the street for people watching. Because the street (any city street) can be noisy, the host included a fan for white noise and earplugs for our use (we did not need them). There was also a list of restaurants in the room with locations and descriptions to help get you started. The tapas place across the street is reasonably priced and delicious! If you did not do much research ahead of time, use one of the many resources in the common area near the kitchen. Wifi also worked best in the kitchen.
Everything else about the apartment was wonderful. There were croissants, coffee and tea, help yourself style, for breakfast. Two full bathrooms, sharing was never an issue, a sunroom and dining area for relaxing. Everything was clean and in great working order.
The location of the apartment is excellent. Two blocks from La Rambla, two blocks from Passeig de Gracia and a metro stop. I recommend walking everywhere because you can see and experience so much more that way. But, if you need the metro, you can easily navigate home.
Everything about this space, Alex, the room, the location, were excellent. Lots of small considerations made for guests.
I was not sure about my time of arrival, which was difficult to manage for Zara, but she finally managed to get me the key and let me in. When I came in the room was not ready, but her friend managed to make the bed. However, the room and the bathroom were not cleaned.
I always ask guests for their flight/arrival information after booking to be able to plan the check-ins in advance. Unfortunately Maarten could not give me a specific arrival time until the same afternoon and actually arrived an hour early. These last minute arrangements meant that the check-in was not as well-coordinated as usual. A bit of a one-off situation which highlights the importance of telling hosts your arrival information in advance, as we have to plan work and personal schedules around check-ins.
