About this listing
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's flat was a fantastic place to stay. It was well-located, next to a fantastic market and close to the beach. She was a great host and, as an added bonus, her terrace is absolutely incredible.
Very Nice apartment and a beautiful view! Abena was very helpfull if we needed anything
We were very delayed in getting to the apartment due to train delays but we were greeted with a warm welcome. Abena was very relaxed and we had a lovely clean room with an incredible view over Barcelona. Great central location and with an amazing view- would recommend!
Abena is a wonderful and friendly host! She helped us out and let us drop off our bags when we arrived early. Nice room, cute apartment, AMAZING terrace. No AC, though, so be prepared for that if you like to sleep in an icebox (there IS a fan, however)!
Mesmerising view from terrace.
Abby was very easy to chat to and added a lot to our holiday experience. Any problems, we felt comfortable mentioning them to her. We would love to come again!
Great experience overall. The balcony gives you awesome view of the city! Very central location, walking distance to many attractions. Helpful host.
