About this listing
My flat is spacious, all renovated and cozy. It has one big bathroom, a living room with a nice street view, a modern kitchen that you can use any time (I provide free tea and snacks to have breakfast in the morning) and two bedrooms. The bedroom is very spacious with a double bed, a comfortable chair where you can relax or read a book and a small balcony that you can use to smoke (if you are a smoker) or just to take fresh air. Clean sheets and towels are provided to make your suitcase lighter. :)
I also have a washing machine for your use, but please, do not use it too early in the morning or too late at night due to respect for the neighbor's rest. I always have detergent and softener.
I welcome you personally to hand you the keys, explain everything about the flat, and give you useful recommendations to enjoy Barcelona to the fullest. If you have heavy luggage, I'm an expert in carrying it up the stairs and I'd love to give you a hand :)
Raval (my neighborhood) is one of the most central, popular and diverse neighborhoods in Barcelona. You can find all kinds of restaurants, from the typical Spanish tapas to exotic cuisines from the middle East, Asia and Africa. There are also many convenient stores to buy goodies, a big supermarket, fruit shops, barber shops, and small shops to by clothes or souvenirs.
La Rambla, Plaça Catalunya, MACBA, CCCB and other sights are all nearby. It is also very easy to reach Plaça Espanya, Parc Güell and all the Gaudi marvels.
Raval is also very well connected in terms of metro and buses. Plaza Catalunya and Las Ramblas are five minutes away and you can go anywhere from there since you have three metro lines and tons of buses.
I'm sure you will enjoy my house and my neighborhood, and I'll do my best to make your stay comfortable and unforgettable.
Two very important rules in my house. Please do not smoke inside the flat. There is a window in the livingroom where you can stick your head out a bit and smoke. Second rule is, please mind the neighbors rest. My building is very quiet and my neighbors are mostly elder people who can be easily annoyed by noise. Out of that, I'm a very relaxed about my flat. I'm aware that people come here to have fun and enjoy themselves.
Hugo was lovely. Very helpful and gave us some good recommendations around the local area. The room and apartment was exactly as described, spacious and the location was perfect, just 5 minutes away from the markets, metros and all the tourist attractions, shopping etc. It was a bit noisy at night but in a central location that can't be helped! There was also a washing machine in the apartment which was very useful! We were also on the 4th floor so it was a good workout coming to and from. Thanks Hugo, we would definitely stay again!
We had a nice time in Hugo's place. Home is at 5th floor and unfortunately there is no lift so if you have heavy luggages pls be careful. Except this, house is like in the pictures. Yes bathroom gives water a bit but Hugo comes home and check it regularly i saw that he cleans the water when he comes home and the other things. He rapidly answer our questions. House is seriously at the heart of Raval and Ramblas!! Perfect perfect perfect location.. Gracias Hugo. (konum çok güzel tek sıkıntı ev 5.katta ve asansör yok bde duş sıkıntı biraz ama Hugo temizliyor eve geldikçe)
Hugo was very welcoming when we arrived, he helped us with our bags and showed us around the appartment. We didn't see too much of him, but he was always quick to respond to messages. The location couldn't have been any better (especially considering how little Hugo charges) and the furnishings in the appartment were great. There's no doubt that we'll stop there again in the future if we visit Barcelona again. Thanks very much, Hugo!
Hugo, my host, was very hospitable and nice. The listing description was accurate. Very nice and pleasent apartment, and clean as well. The neighborhood was ok, maby a little noisy during the night. The best of all was the nearness of main street La Rambla. Location is really great!
Location was great and it was beautiful to walked around during nights and really safe area.
Cafe, grocery and restaurant was near also there were various transportations near hour house. But, this apartment didn't have elevator and it had lots of stairs so if you have heavy luggages it maybe not easy to bring these to house.
The rooms looked exactly like the pictures in website!
And me and my friend spend good times by this house.
I really recommend this house.
Brilliant location an apartment, amazingly cheap for what we had as well! 5 minutes walk from La Rambla and the other people staying there left the day after we arrived so we had the apartment to ourselves! Never met the host as he was away but he left recommendations on his guidebook. Wonderful stay in a wonderful city!
