About This Listing
I have a beautiful large room with a double bed to rent in THE very best central area of Barcelona called El Born which you may also know as Gotico, 2 minutes from the famous Picasso Museum and the awesome church of Santa Maria del Mar, 5 minutes to THE Cathedral and the UNESCO listed Palau de la Musica, 10 minutes to the Beach, 2 minutes from the Metro (Jaume I), 5 minutes from sunny Ciutadella Park and close to many many restaurants and bars. I promise you won't starve here! Perfect location for exploring Barcelona by foot or by transport.
The flat is lovely and has two rooms, I am letting the largest one with a double bed and very comfortable for a couple, two persons or one. The flat has an open lounge and kitchen, very clean and luminous. It has a fully equipped kitchen, a walk in shower room, two balconies and wifi. We also have a communal roof terrace which you are more than welcome to use. It's indeed a very nice place to experience a home in Barcelona!
Thank you for reading and I look forward to hearing from you soon :-)
No smoking is allowed inside the flat. No parties, unreasonable noise, use of drugs or abuse of alcohol allowed in this flat which is in a residential area where people have to work the next day including myself!
I also provide clean towels and bedsheets. Laundry can be done at 4 euros per load.
Please leave your room and the flat reasonably clean when you depart. Also, please note, I don't provide breakfast but you can use the kitchen facilities to prepare your own if you wish to do so. When you do though, please leave the kitchen clean so that I can use it too. Please the same goes for the the bathroom and toilets. Thank you.
Have a wonderful stay in beautiful Barcelona :-)
From the moment I walked into the apartment Dalila made me feel welcome and it was easy to feel at home instantly particularly with the messages we had sent back and forth before the trip. Dalila was always able to offer advice on where to go, what to see and one off events to attend.
The room and apartment are clean, tidy and exactly as the photos show and the bed is comfortable. The bedroom is quiet as the window faces into the courtyard rather than outward facing.
The apartment is perfectly located for visiting the Gothic quarter, La Ramblas and Barceloneta for the beach by foot and has good access to the public transport network, the tourist bus tours and very close to cycle hire shops. I would recommend walking to the apartment from the Aerobus stop at Place de Catalunya to get your bearings and I found the free map on the aerobus most useful of the ones available.
I would gladly stay here again and hope to do so at a different time of year to experience Barcelona's cultural calendar. Thank you Dalila for being such a great host by making my stay so varied and an experience I will remember.
Dalila was an amazing hostess. Friendly, helpful and available for anything we needed. She really made us feel at home. The apartment is great. Clean and located in a great neighborhood that is walking distance to the beach and many sights in Barcelona. There are many small restaurants, bars, shops and plazas all around the apartment, giving an authentic "local" feel to your stay.
Dalila is a lovely welcoming lady and made me feel at home instantly.
The room is as described, and location of this flat is superb.
I would recommend it to anyone visiting Barcelona.
Dalila and her flat were wonderful. It's located very centrally, close to the metro, steps from the Picasso Museum (though not too close as to avoid crowds) and right in the heart of the charming and trendy El Born neighborhood. Amazing tapas bars and coffee shops nearby, as well as great shopping. Dalila is a wonderful host, who actually took us out two night to get a great sense of Barcelona's nightlife. She warm and welcoming and always up for a good time. The room itself is simple, clean and comfortable. Everything you could need for a few days in Barcelona. I would recommend this listing to anyone.
El lugar es un poco extraño al llegar, como edificio antiguo sin ascensores por lo que subir maletas 3 pisos incomoda la pieza pequeña pero limpia un poco de bulla de trasnoche pero el resto muy bien dalila habla perfecto español lo que ayuda
Gracias para las palabras. Me parece qye todo es escrito y transparente en la descripcion del piso en Airbnb especialmente lo de las escaleras como los pisos de la Ciutat Vella son casi todos asi es importante leer y entender las implicaciones antes de hacer una reserva y no depues. Muchas gracias.
Dalila was a wonderful host. She immediately made me feel welcome, waiting for me patiently when my flight was delayed, and was very helpful in exploring ideas with me about things to do and places to see, giving me directions, etc. She's a thoughtful, considerate host, and the bedroom allowed me plenty of privacy. Her lovely apartment is beautifully situated; I walked everywhere, didn't take a taxi or bus or metro anywhere, it was easy to get around (the Google Maps app on my iPhone was a blessing). Oh, those Indian head massages Dalila offers for 25 euros? Wow, super worthwhile. The stress of the week just faded away. Loved Barcelona, and staying at Dalila's was a lovely part of the experience. Highly recommended!
Dalila was amazing! We were in Barcelona researching neighborhoods for our upcoming move. Dalila offered a friendly ear and had excellent advise about schools, neighborhoods and life in Barcelona. Her flat is super clean and the location can not be beat. We had a lovely time. Thank you for everything Dalila, looking forward to seeing you this Fall!
Thank you so much Suzanne for your kind words. I have to say I enjoyed having you both in my flat. Your love for Barcelona and your plan are quite inspiring, your discretion and the respect you showed are much appreciated. Please stay in touch when you get to Barcelona, I would love to meet your children. All the best for now xoxo
