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.
This is a shared flat and it's ideal for travelers who want to meet other travelers exploring the city. I don't live in the flat, but I'm living in another flat two blocks away from this one and if you need me, I can be there in five minutes. I also 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.
We stayed at Hugo's place for 3 days, the location is perfect, you are a few blocks away from La Rambla and in walking distance from several touristic attractions. The neighborhood is a typical downtown neighborhood, you can find a lot of restaurants and its not noisy at all at night, good place to sleep and rest. The place is nice, comfortable bed, very clean and Hugo is the best host you can find. I really recommend this place to enjoy Barcelona. Thanks a lot Hugo!
The flat was perfect ! I felt at home. I would like to live there as it's very spacious and comfortable.
Hugo is very helpful, he takes good care of his guest and of his flat! Every day he came to clean, to put the trash out and to provide toilet paper, ...
The flat is very well situated, few minutes from la rambla.
I highly recommend Hugo's flat!
Thanks for everything!
Hugo's flat is a great place to stay. The room indeed was spacious and very comfortable. I was pleasantly surprised by the iron & hair dryer - very thoughtful of him.
The location of the flat is very convenient and close to everything - the metro station was 5mins away, there were many small grocery stores in the area (a larger one 7mins away as well), coffee shops. I wasn't expecting the neighborhood to be as quiet as it was in the night given how busy it seemed to be during the day. Despite the few bars in the area, we had no problem sleeping in the nights.
Hugo was very nice & helpful. Simply a great host. Would definitely keep his place in mind for future trips to Barcelona (which is a must).
We spent three nights at Hugo`s place and it was a great experience. First of all, Hugo is so friendly, communicative, caring and helpful. He takes good care of his apartment to make you feel comfortable. The flat is very well situated, within walking distance to basically most of the places you may want to see, las Ramblas, Placa Catalunya, sea, harbour. All in all, nothing to complain about but a lot to recommend! Good luck, Hugo!
ESP: Pasamos tres noches en el apartamento y fue una experiencia estupenda. Primero, Hugo es extremadamente amable, atento, amistoso y comunicativo. Lo cuidará todo para que te sientas como en casa y disfrutes de tus vacaciones. El piso está muy bien ubicado, se puede llegar andando a casi todos los lugares que posiblemente quieras vistiar, las Ramblas, plaza Cataluña, mar, puerto. En resumen, sin duda recomendamos. Saludos!
It’s was my first time I used airbnb and I was so happy I stayed in Hugo’s place. It is situated in the heart of the center of Barcelona, just a walk distance from La Rambla and Placa Catalunya; the metro station is very close to it and nearby you can find various shops/restaurants/bars and everything you need. As well it’s a very clear and nice apartment, you just feel like at home. Hugo is a great host - he made my experience even more pleasant! He’s an amazing person and is always there when you need something. I highly recommend Hugo’s place!!! Thanks for everything, Hugo :)
Me and my girlfriend were satisfied with apartment. There was everything that we needed. Everything was like its writen in description.
Hugo was friendly and helped us with information about local shops and other objects.
Thank you Hugo!
Hugo is super nice, his apartment super cute and our stay awesome. I was surprised but Hugo cleans each day and he welcomes you as if you were part of his family.
I would def' recommend it to my friends and family and would love to come back.
Hugo, my husband was so thirsty, he drunk all the Orange juice ;(..;So, the new one in the fridge is for you and the other guy jajajaja; so sorry ;).
Last but not least; I love his neighborhood, Raval. Very close to la Ramba and cheap restaurants, cheap bakeries....
We have spent several days in January in Hugo's apartment in Barcelona. It was really great to stay there, because it's in the centere of the city, near Rambla. Also apartment is really clean and has everything for comfortable stay. Hugo is really kind and responsible host, so we highly recommend him for everyone!
We were contacted by Hugo about a month after our original booking asking if we'd mind changing to one of his other units. As he said that it was bigger and still in the same general location, we were fine with it. When we finally arrived in Barcelona, we got a little lost trying to find the exact location of the unit so we called him on our phone via (website hidden) and he picked up immediately and let us in.
The room was quite spacious and the unit is well-located, just a few minutes walk to the infamous Las Ramblas and the metro station. In the neighborhood are lots of local eateries and markets. (There is a Carrefour market located about 5-10 minutes walk from the unit. Since we prepared a couple meals at home, this came in incredibly handy.) Hugo gave us lots of information about the El Raval neighborhood as well as several tips on safety and suggested a few restaurants to us as well. (Definitely check out his recommendations for the mussel restaurant and the paella place! Both were great!)
He came by to clean and tidy up the apartment daily which was nice. Also, there was an issue with the heater in our room, but he was quick to come by and replace it with a working one while we were out. There was also tea available in addition to a washing machine. One of the benefits of this room in the unit was that it had its own private balcony which has its own drying racks outside, not accessible by the other room in the unit.
Just a word of warning though, the unit is located on the 4th floor of the building, so if stairs are not your cup of tea, you may want to reconsider. Personally, I didn't find it that bad, nor did my wife who has knee problems, but just a heads-up.
Also, the unit in located in an alleyway and one night there was quite a ruckus outside which echoed up into our room. I'm not sure if the boisterous noises were due to a football victory or due to the holidays, but be aware that noises in the alleyway may come up into the room.
All in all, the stay at Hugo's was wonderful and I would definitely recommend it to others!
Hugo was very good in communicating with me. Nice n clean spacious room. Recommended if you are looking for a cheap place to stay.
