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, made both Dawn and I very welcome from the moment we walked through the door. The apartment is serviced by lifts and has a fantastic view of Barcelona from the spacious varanda. The bed was extremely comfortable and the room was very clean.
An home from home this apartment was centrally placed near the Gothic Cathredral and attractions were within walking distance. If looking to see attractions try booking online as discounts are often given and some major attractions have timeslots for entrance into them.
Thans Abena for a pleasant stay. Next time we come we will bring some Yorkshire teabags with us.

Abena has been incredible with us: our flight was delayed and she waited for us till late at night! The communication was easy since the beginning and on arrival our room was just like in the picture and perfectly clean. Her apartment is located just close the" Barrio Gotico" few steps from the cathedral and has panoramic views of Barcelona that include a terrific terrace with at the background the Sagrada Familia. Having breakfast outdoor was amazing! Would definitely stay here again.
L'appartement est très sympa et propre avec une magnifique vue sur tout Barcelone. Abena est une hôtesse agréable. Le seul souci étant de ne pas pouvoir profiter pleinement des espaces communs (salon et terrasse), Abena étant prof d'anglais a domicile. Je recommande mais peut être pas pour une semaine complète.
Abena was fantastic. The place is clean and inviting. I was at the end of a cruise vacation and I had limited access to Internet. Yet, she was accommodating and helped me with directions to her address. I was exhausted after my cruise. It was a great place to decompress and catch up since there was internet available. It was also in close proximity to an Orange wireless store to top up my SIM card. The taxi que is also close by so getting to the airport after my stay was a breeze. I would recommend Abena's pad if you are ever in Barcelona. It's a great location!
This was my first experience with AirBNB. Thank you Abena, for making my stay in Barcelona a pleasant one.
Abena was very welcoming and helpful during our stay. Her place has a great view of the city and is close to mass transit and Ciutadella Park.
