I have a bright, clean double room for rent, with a comfy double bed, wardrobe and incredible views of Barcelona.
The room is within a bright, clean and comfortable penthouse (atíco) apartment with three bedrooms (only one occupied, by me) one bathroom with large shower, living room and independent kitchen. All rooms have excellent views of Barcelona. The apartment is very quiet although it's in the centre of town.
The apartment has high velocity, fibre optic internet, therefore 24 hour Wi-fi access is also available.
The apartment also has an 80m2 terrace, which guests are welcome to use - offering views of the sea, mountains and the heart of Barcelona.
The apartment is five minutes walk from metro rail train stations and other forms of transport, a short walk to Plaza Cataluña and 15 minutes walk to Barceloneta beach.
While in the heart of the Born (Gothic) area, you will be close to a myriad of wonderful bars and restaurants, plus many of Barcelona's main tourist attractions...
All amenities mentioned.
Historic architecture, winding narrow pedestrian streets lined with Gothic buildings, cool bars and amazing restaurants
The Aerobus goes directly from El Prat airport and is around 5.90€, one-way. The closest bus stop to the apartment is Playa Catalunya, which is also the final destination of the Aerobus route. It should take no longer than 45 minutes to get to Plaza Catalunya from the airport; from there it's around 5-10 minutes walk to the apartment.
A taxi should be no more than 30€ (30 min journey) from the airport to the apartment door.
There is a train service directly from the airport at 2.15€, one-way (40-50 min journey). With this you will have to change lines at Sants Estacio – L3/4/5 & R3/4/7 or Passeig de Gracia – L2/3/4 and either continue on the RENFE (over ground) to Arc de Triomf – L1 & R3/4/7, which is 8-10 minutes walk away or on the Metro (underground) to Jaume 1 - L4 or Urquinaona – L1/4 which are both just over 5 minutes walk away from the apartment.
There are a variety of car parks within two minutes of the apartment.
Various bus services including tour bus lines very close to the apartment.
Fortunately the apartment is in a quiet area for Barcelona. As this is a residential building, please be aware of the neighbours and keep music and noise levels low after 10pm (according to local laws), especially on the terrace.
Abena is awesome. She makes you feel at home, and her place is exactly as described.
La ubicaciòn muy buena, en pleno centro de Barcelona. Todo muy limpio y organizado.
La atenciòn con Abena perfecta.
Abena was really chilled and really welcoming - we felt really relaxed coming and going as we pleased and had a good night's sleep each night. We couldn't manage to get the shower to go hot but I would stay with Abena again on the assumption that we just caught the shower at a bad time on our most recent visit. Thanks for being so welcoming Abena.
Great place to stay in Barcelona. Nice apartment, the terrace is amazing. The area is ideal; walking distance to everything, great food and bars nearby, safe at all hours. Abena was the ideal host, friendly and with invaluable local knowledge.
We had a fantastic time at Abena's in Barcelona. It is in the perfect location for seeing the best of the city - we walked everywhere. The neighbourhood is gorgeous with lots of fantastic restaurants and cafes right outside. We particularly loved the terrace - great views and beautiful sunsets! We will be back for sure :)
Really had a nice stay @ Abenas!
Such an easy and helpful Host!
Would stay there again at any time!!
Abenas apartment is perfect for a short visit to Barcelona - it is clean, well equipped and cosy. Although my room was not ready until later in the day Abena made sure I felt at home and was very friendly. I would definitely stay here again :)
