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.
*There are 3 bedrooms available to rent on Airbnb. For group bookings please see the Arty listing (https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/901580) and the Elegant listing ((website hidden)).*

Alex was very warm and welcoming upon our arrival. Graffiti room was great, nice balcony doors, room was large enough to fit two people comfortably. Bed was comfortable. Excellent location. Elevator in building was great. List of some great recommendations on restaurants/grocery stores/etc. in room. Only downside was the wifi. Wifi only worked in the room about 10% of the time due to low signal but worked great in the common area and bathrooms. Overall had a great stay!
The location is really very nice. It is convinent for sight seeing. Besides, restaurant across the street is also wonderful for tapas.
We missed a connecting flight and ended up needing a place to stay in Barcelona unexpectedly. We messaged Zarita with a request to book for the same day and she responded within minutes. The apartment is in a perfect location to walk to all the major sights, just far enough away from the tourist masses and beautifully decorated.
The neighbourhood of this property is perfect for sightseeing. Most of the major tourist spots are at walking distance. There is also a really nice tapas restaurant just across the street and we're grateful to Alex for the recommendation.
The room is as pictured (including a tall mirror, which was cool). The floor could've been given a wipe, but other than that, cosy. The bathrooms (two of them, convenient) are a little tight, but OK. There's tea and some small snacks for breakfast, and the fridge is cleverly labeled giving each room a shelf.
I'm sorry we only had a weekend there, so I couldn't take advantage of the bright reading room (I call it that, because I wish I had the time to read there a little) beyond the dining room.
The only problem with such a central spot is the noise. If you didn't know that yet, Spanish people are loud!! And apparently they party all night long because there were people yelling under out balcony every single night until 6 am (I think earplugs were provided). That was the major downside of the Graffitti Room - it's just above the street so there's a lot of traffic and noise. I don't know if the room that's at the other end of the apartment is better, but I'm guessing noise probably comes with most (if not all) central locations in BCN.
All in all, we had a good stay. Funky old elevator in the building, too. There were maps and books about the city and the country. Would be a great place to stay with a bunch of friends.
da ich auf der Durchreise wart verbrachte ich nur ein nacht
im graffiti room.
alles war gut organisiert. wurde von alex empfangen und sah dann
niemand mehr. ( apartment ist im 3.Stock und hat altehrwürdigen Lift)
die unterkunft ist vom plaza cataluna gut zu fuss erreichbar und das
zeitgenoessisch gestylte apartment haelt absolut was es verspricht.
sogar eine gourmet kueche mit allem drum und dran.
absolut empfehlenswert. werde bei einer nächsten gelegenheit gerne
Zarita hat unsere Ankunft zeitlich perfekt geplant, wir konnten direkt vom Flughafen anreisen und wurden sehr freundlich empfangen. Die Wegbeschreibung ist ebenfalls einwandfrei. Das Zimmer ist toll und wie im Inserat beschrieben. Dadurch dass die Wohnung durch das ganze Haus geht, kann man super lüften wenn es zu heiß ist. In der Nacht konnten wir die Türen zum kleinen Balkon leider nicht offen lassen, da die Straße doch etwas laut ist, aber es war trotzdem nicht unangenehm. Bei der tollen Lage der Wohnung kann man das aber in Kauf nehmen (oder das Zimmer wählen, das nicht an der Straße liegt). Zur Not wären auch Ohrstöpsel bereit gelegen, die wir dann doch nicht gebraucht haben. Die gemeinsamen Bereiche der Wohnung sind sehr geräumig und schön eingerichtet. Die Kochutensilien und die Duschen waren leider nicht mehr im besten Zustand. Alles in allem hat uns unser Aufenthalt sehr gut gefallen und wir würden diese Unterkunft jederzeit weiterempfehlen!
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!
