You know who you are, someone who wants something off the beaten path, but wants a luxury bed; you want to be in the middle of everything, but be on a safe street. As a well traveled person in my early 40's, I´m offering something that I would want. That being food, architecture, history, art, and culture without having to compromise creature comforts.
Small hotel rooms? Forget that. This room is as large as a studio apartment and has a private balcony over looking the street. You'll have room to sleep on the over-sized memory foam bed, and a private "living-room" sized area with a 32" television and DVD / Blu Ray.
If there are more than two of you staying the sofa turns into another double bed and the room is easily big enough for four people.
The bathroom is shared if there are other guests here, but it is large with a full bath and shower. There is the option of a private bathroom available for a small extra charge. Please ask me about this when making your enquiry if you are interested in this option.
Staying here means you only have to walk up one flight of stairs and the room is on the far side of the flat so it can feel like you have a whole studio to yourselves. You are ensured complete privacy if you want some alone time or indulge in the Spanish tradition of siesta.
The apartment was recently refurbished and everything is brand new. You also have access to a gourmet, American-style, open kitchen that you can use for breakfast (please ask me if you want to use it for more serious cooking, such as dinner) off this main salon is my 60 sqm private garden terrace decorated with sofas, table, chairs and a few fruit trees (can be used up until 10pm) it's amazing to see the stars with a glass of cava.

I am very centrally located in the Ciutat Vella (old town) and within walking distance of Las Ramblas, La Boqueria market, Plaça Catalunya, Plaça Espanya, Sants Estacio, shops, bars, restaurants, museums and metro stops.
The area is perfect for foodies, within a 10 minute walk of the famous Tickets Restaurant, and on this street Restaurant Cera 23, which is #2 on TripAdvisor restaurants, and NeverMore with a former El Bulli chef who teaches cooking classes every Tuesday. Being based in the old city means you are only a few minutes walk from everywhere.
Hope to meet you soon!
Private Balcony and Private terrace (up until 10pm) TV with bluray player, WiFi, Kitchen and option of private bathroom.
As little or as much as you want
My wife and I stayed with David for 2 days while we were in Barcelona. David's place is in a perfect location in the middle of Barcelona. It is within walking distance of everything you want to see, or just a 10 minute walk to a Metro. The outside of the building does not give this apartment justice, but once you get inside, it feels very comfortable. David gave fantastic advice about restaurants, and also lets you use his great kitchen if you'd like to cook while staying there. He sat down with us right when we arrived with a map of Barcelona and gave us a lot of help on where to go, where to eat, and what to see. Overall, a great experience, and would gladly stay with David again!
We had a great time in Barcelona, thanks to David's warm welcoming + recommendations, and the great location of the flat which allowed us to do almost everything by foot.
The room itself is very spacious, as well as the bathroom. Everything was super clean and tidy. David's been a little bit around but we always felt like we were pretty much at home.
The street can be a little noisy at night, but it honestly didn't bother us after such days of constant walking.
Location and comfort are the most important for us when we're travelling and David's flat offers both.
We would definitely come back there!
Bonne expérience globale chez David Martin où nous sommes restés trois nuits. La Carrer Cerra n'est pas la plus chic de Barcelone en plus d'être bruyante, et l'immeuble est vétuste. Mais l'appartement est rénové et bien situé, près du centre. La chambre est spacieuse, fonctionnelle, avec une bonne literie. Pour un supplément de 10€/nuit, nous avions un usage privé de la salle de bain la porte à côté. Avec les enfants, il était confortable de pouvoir utiliser la cuisine bien équipée de David pour nos repas (à partager néanmoins avec l'autre chambre). Accueil sobre et agréable de David qui s'est montré disponible pour nos questions.
Heel leuk en proper appartement op 5 min. wandelen van de Ramblas en dicht bij San Antoni metro. David was heel vriendelijk en steeds bereid om onze vragen te beantwoorden. Klein (maar super) terrasje aan de straatkant en big terras aan achterkant. Ook veel lekkere restaurantjes in de buurt. Een aanrader dus !
David is a splendid host and his apartment is located in a buzzing and exciting area. Lot's of bars and restaurants around. We had an incredible stay!
We had a great stay. David is a very friendly and helpful host! The location is very central, only 5 minutes from la Rambla and close to very good restaurants which David is happy to recommend to you. The apartement is very nice with a big kitchen and a big terrace. We can highly recommend David's apartement for a stay in Barcelona!
Great little apartment in a great area! The room was lovely and exactly what we wanted, everything was really clean and comfortable. David's a fab host and will definitely visit again in the future!
We stayed with David just before returning home to Melbourne. The room is a great size, apartment in a great location with everything we needed. We enjoyed being able to use the terrace and were appreciative of getting two nights of good rest before the long flight home! Thanks for hosting us David, we will return if we are back in Barcelona again!
David's apartment is very nice and clean and the location is just great. Walking distance to La Rambla and the old city of Barcelona. Big plus: the terrasse. David is a great host. Very helpful and friendly. I'll definitely come back.
Realmente un gran departamento y full equipo. Super comodo para para un grupo, y realmente muy cerca de todo en pleno Raval, lugar que adoro.
Hospitalidad y atencion excelente!!
