The space

IMPORTANT: please read this FULL description.

>> How many people live in the flat?
It’s me +3 SINGLE rooms rented short term. Max. of 4 people in the flat.
>> How many people do I have to share the bathroom with?
Only 1!
>> How long it takes to reach your place from Barcelona airport?
About 1 and a half hours.
>> How do I go from the airport to your place?
I’ll send you the detailed directions once you have booked the room. It’ll be impossible for you to get lost :)
>> What should I expect from the apartment?
The apartment is always clean and tidy. Some guests told me that it has a positive energy that made them relax and feel comfortable.
>> Is the apartment noisy?
Consider that we leave in the city center, in a typical Spanish building with “patio de luces”, where you might hear the neighbors but not traffic noise. If you are sensitive to noise, I recommend to bring earplugs, although you won’t probably need them.

Guest access

>> Do I have access to the kitchen?
Yes, you have a special place in the fridge and in the cupboard to store your own food.
>> Can I use the stove and cook?
No. You have for your use in the kitchen our microwave, toaster, orange juicer and hotpot, but not the burners on the stove (sorry but I had a bad experience with some guests in the past).
>> Can I use the washing machine?
The washing machine is very old and doesn’t work well, but there is a self-service laundromat just 2 streets from home. I’ll send you more info once you have booked the room.
>> Does the internet connection work well enough to allow me to work without problems?
Yes! The internet connection works perfectly in your room. Many guests worked from home and never had any issue.

Interaction with guests

I’ll welcome you in person on the day of your arrival and I will show you the flat and give you all the information you might need during your stay. If you need any information about the city, let me help you. You’ll find many maps and guides in the room and I’ll also send you a link to a map that I have created on (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) maps where you’ll find many pins in the neighbourhood: restaurants, cafes, shops, supermarket, useful interest points and much more.

I work a lot recently but I’m often at home. In case you don’t see me around, you can always reach me by (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) or through this platform. Please, don’t hesitate to contact me if you need anything.

This was a great place for me to stay while in Barcelona! I was close enough to the metro so I could easily jump to other parts of the city. The room was very nice and I felt safe there. Claudia is absolutely wonderful and helpful!

I was looking for a peaceful, clean, relaxing place to spend some time over the holidays and I found it at Claudia's. She was friendly and helpful. She had many great tips on great places to visit in the area. The location is very close to the Sagrada Familia and an easy metro ride to the busier areas of Barcelona. There are two other AirBnb rooms but having two separate bathrooms in the flat, it worked out just fine. She graciously provided space in the refrigerator and a cupboard shelf to store some snacks or leftovers. The Zen room was comfortable and roomy. I never had to use the heater because the temperature stayed temperate (even though it was cold outside). There is a window that can be opened if it felt stuffy. I would definitely stay here again, as I enjoyed both the space and getting to know the hostess!

Claudia has a nice apartment and she was a great host. She was always willing to make suggestions for where to eat or what sites to see and she had awesome advice. My room was clean and there was never any noise. A peaceful place near Sagrada Familia!

Nací en una isla y quería ver lo que había fuera de ella. Así es como empecé mis experiencias de viaje y de conocimiento de otros países, culturas e idiomas. Sé lo que significa llegar a una ciudad y sentirte completamente perdida, y sé lo bonito que es cuando alguien, que ni siquiera conoces, te abre su casa y te ayuda con simples consejos que mejorarán tu estancia. He vivido en 7 ciudades de 5 países, he tenido amigos de amigos, amigos de conocidos o simplemente conocidos que me han acogido en ciudades que no eran mías y ahora ha llegado mi momento de manifestar la gratitud que siempre he tenido por cada instante. Me encanta conocer a gente nueva, así como me gusta poder ayudar cuando alguien lo necesita y compartir momento enriquecedores.

¡Espero poderte conocer pronto!
I was born on an island and I wanted to see what was outside. That’s how I started my experiences traveling and learning about other countries, cultures and languages. I know how it feels when arriving in a new city you feel totally lost and I know how beautiful it is when someone that you don’t even know, opens their home to you and helps you with some simple advice, making your stay much better. I have lived in 7 different cities in 5 different countries. I have had friends of friends, friends of acquaintances, and even acquaintances, take me in their city and made me feel welcome. Now it is my turn to manifest my gratitude for each of those experiences. I love to meet new people, to help and to share enriching moments.

I hope I'll meet you in person soon!
