I would like to invite you to stay at my place in Barcelona.
The room is not just a room since you will have a living room next to it that you could enjoy privately. I will be sharing the flat with you, but since my studio (where I work) is in the opposite side of the apartment you will have all the privacy you might need.
The apartment is located in a very centric area, in the Eixample, a traditional Barcelona neighbourhood.
The place has plenty of light and since it's in the sixth floor the views are not bad at all (don't worry, there's an elevator)
I do have a cat "Mons", but is very easy going and I don't think it will bother you at all, actually spends most of the time with me in the studio watching how I work (he is funny that way).
The kitchen is not big, but is clean and has everything you might need to make any sort of meal. You are welcome to help yourself to the fridge in the morning for breakfast.
We will share as well a changing room, where you can leave your clothes, luggage and all the stuff you might bring with you.
I don't smoke myself, but the apartment is smokers friendly so you don't have to worry about that.
The place is perfect for young couples or single travellers, and on the bright side, since I've been living in Barcelona for ages, you would have a free city guide in the flat.
The neighbourhood is great. You have buses and subway all around the place, and you can be in Ramblas in no more than ten minutes.
Next to us you have mont Montjuic, which has amazing views of the city and some of the most beautiful parks.
Go with out saying that you'll have bars, shops and all sort of little business in the surrounding area.
Oh! The area is very safe, is not like Barcelona is a dangerous place at all, but, well you know, the most turistic areas have a tendency to attract some pickpockets, well you won't have any of that in this neighbourhood.
And......well, I think that's all.
I would like you to think of my place not as a double room, but like a tiny apartment where you will have all the privacy and comfort you could wish for.
Hope hearing form you soon.
Hugs and kisses,
We were at Gemma in the middle of August. Apartment is very comfortable, clean and light. It wasn`t hot inside. The bed is big and comfortable. Gemma is good and nice person. In airport we lost our luggage. and Gemma helped us to get it. Thanks, Gemma!!!
Also she haves very nice cat Mons.
We like to live with Gemma :)
We really enjoyed our days at Gemma's place. Gemma was very nice and helpful. The apartment was clean and the extra living room just great. The only minus: you hear the traffic in the night. I would recommend the place: we really felt at home!
The flat is wonderful - spacious, nice designed, very comfy. We used both the bedroom and the livingroom with nice balconies and beautiful arched doors. Gemma even let me use her nice home office as I brought a lot of work along. The building is situated near Placa d'Espanya with its famous Las Arenas and the fabulous mount Montjuic is near and it will take about 10-15 minutes to get to Placa Catalunia walking.
Gemma is nice and very easy going person doing her best for guests feel home and have their privacy and comfort.
My highest recommendation!
I have just spent three days in Barcelona for work and I am glad I decided to stay here. When I arrived I was told I had both the bedroom and the lounge so it was more like staying in a private studio than a room share. The apartment is just a 10 min walk from the centre of town and is very close to the metro. The rooms are very bright and comfortable and the host Gemma was always very helpful if I needed some advice about the city, how to get around, or the best places to go etc…
Overall I thoroughly recommend staying here and will be returning the next time I am in Barcelona.
Gemma is very nice and the flat is really good. It was a spacious room with an own saloon. Everything was very clean and the bed was just comfi!!! Monts, the housecat is really adorable!
It was a very enjoyable homestay. I´m sure that we gonna stay there again.
Die Zimmer waren sehr süß eingerichtet. Wir hatten ein Schlaf- und ein Wohnzimmer. Altbau, hohe Decken und einen kleinen Balkon mit einem tollen Blick übers Viertel.
Gemma war zudem eine sehr liebe Gastgeberin.
Defintiv zu 100% empfehelnswert!
