About this listing
Modernista Rooms in downtown Eixample, just a block from Passeig de Gracia and Gaudís Casa Batlló. Easy to explore the city on foot. If you want a quiet, light and very spacious 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.
Elegant and quiet, the double bedroom boasts light and comfortable space with an eclectic array of frames and furnishings. It opens onto a sunroom at the back of the apartment, here in the heart of beautiful Eixample.
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.

We spent three nights in this shared apartment, which was very centrally located. The room was large and well furnished. Though we did not take advantage of it, the kitchen/lounge was clean and nice. We were also offered a space in the refrigerator if we needed it. We were disappointed to find out just before arrival that there was no longer air conditioning in the unit, a major reason we booked the apartment (We were not directly told, but learned through re-checking details the day before arrival). When I asked Zara about the a/c she responded quickly and also provided a very small tabletop fan for use. Please also note that you are not able to lock your bedroom when leaving during the day. Overall, we enjoyed the location and the aesthetic of the apartment. We were disappointed in the change of amenity without prior notification.
We were having problems with the AC unit in the apartment so could no longer offer it as an amenity on the listing. Regarding locking doors, since this is a shared apartment we work on a trust-based system where people respect and do not enter each other's private space. We have not had any issues with this whatsoever.
The whole experience was great.
The check-in happened perfectly.
The building is situated in a really central place.
The room was really nice.
The common spaces were really awesome.
There has benn no problem at all.
Thank you for everything.
If you are looking for a reliable, safe and clean place to stay in Barcelona, this is an amazing appartment. The location was fabulous, and I was able to come and go as I so pleased. Alex even hung my laundry for me one day! I would highly recommend this room.
We had a great stay in Barcelona! The location was great, and the room was private. The shared kitchen space was well-kept and we cooked several meals while in Barcelona. Zara's local restaurant recommendations were also great, and we had positive experiences at several of them. Alex, who lives in the apartment, was also very helpful with laundry and other things we needed. Overall, we definitely recommend this airbnb to someone staying in Barcelona!
The location of the room is convenient, Casa Batllo and Casa Mila are really close to the house. The description of the transport is helpful. The room is spacious and bright. There are many restaurants and stores in the neighborhood. I did not meet Zara, her friend who take care of the apartment, in my opinion, was not very welcoming, he did not introduce himself, I did not even know what is his name. When we checked in, he just showed us the fridge, toilet and our room, I think introduce the scenic spots and map might be useful. He told us do not take the shower after 11pm, restaurants in Barcelona close not very early, this rule is not very easy for us, I have to move my shower time to the next morning, which is not very comfortable when I came back from the hot weather and went to bed without take a shower. This rule is not stated in the description on Airbnb.
In the house rules the "no late night noise" part had previously been disrespected by other guests when using the bathrooms. We have since resolved the issue and it is fine to take a shower as late or as early as guests require. Alex is always available to answer questions about the area and there are a stack of maps and guide books for use. I think there was a small communication problem here which I hope to improve.
