The Space

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.
Arty and modern, the double bedroom boasts light and comfortable space with a splashy wall feature and some quirky detail. It is street facing on the 3rd floor with a little balcony overlooking one of Barcelona´s most exclusive and central avenues.

You have access to a huge lounge and kitchen. There are two shower rooms with WC, dining room, and a large sunroom at the back.

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. And we will be throwing the occasional sushi dinner party for those of you who like sushi.

Your setting here is right beside Rambla de Catalunya, Passeig de Gracia and a 4-minute walk to Plaza Catalunya, with shops and bars in your surround. Nearest metro Passeig de Gracia or Plaza Catalunya, with direct links via train or bus to and from the airport. Two of Gaudís landmark buildings are blocks away and the Modernism Museum is around the corner.

  • Great location. Comfortable space. No lock on bedroom door or safe in the room.

  • It's our first time using airbnb and we liked it. The charming apartment is more than a 100 yrs old and had fascinating interior. Note : there is no aircon so could get pretty hot at night. We asked for a fan and response time was super fast. I like it that we got to meet a couple from groningen a mother n son from seoul and a outgoing babe from hamburg. It was terribly noisy at night and bothered my husband, I am sound asleep due to the hectic adventure in the day. I thought the bed was too small for the 2 of us. It is a queen sized bed.

    I have to mention the doors. It is so ancient, u need skills to open the door. But not to worry, practice makes prefect.

    I had to do a special mention on our last night there , Alex invited us to watch football and made a mean pizza with a friend. I had a good time listening to 5 spokened languages at one time!

  • Great apartment and room. The apartment is near the metro station "Passeig de Gràcia" with less than 5 minutes walking distance. It is located in quite a safe area for travelers. Highly recommended.

  • The place was nice. The bathrooms could have been cleanier but I attribute that to the other guests staying there not being respectful of others. The room looked out on a main-ish street to lots of noise but nothing that the complimentary ear buds wont fix - I slept well. Great location. Zara was helpful in recommending places to eat and visit. Would stay again!

    May 2014
  • Zara is a nice person to talk with. She knows the area and give good suggestion for good restaurant and not to expensive.
    Her place is in the centre of Barcelona. Really ideal to go around.

    May 2014
  • The room is clean and spacious as in the picture. The location is perfect as well since it is located in a nice and safe neighborhood, not too far from some major sights either. Alex checked us in and he is very friendly and share some nice bar nearby.

    The only little setback is that - we can actually hear the noise from the street during late night even we close the window. For a light sleeper like me, I felt the overall experience is influenced by this point. If I visited Barcelona again, I would love to stay here again but prob in another room

  • Very central and well decorated apartment. Very spacious rooms. One can visit almost everything that's worth to see in Barcelona at walking distance. Plus there are lots of restaurants and bars also at walking distance, without mentioning all the nice shops. Warm welcome and service from Zara and Alex. In short, nice place to stay!

    April 2014
