The Space

Perfect Holiday Sublet located in Eixample - St Antoni, within walking distance to the heart of Barcelona (old town) with all of its shops, bars and restaurants. It is also very close to Pl. Espanya / Montjuic with the Magic Fountain, Museums and Olympic installations. And finally just next to the gay neighborhood.

The flat is in a modern building, situated on the first floor, accessible by elevator, and includes a lovely terrace where you can have your breakfast or just hang out. You are also welcome to use the living room and the fully-equipped kitchen.

The double bedroom is furnished with a double bed (150x190), along with night tables and a built-in closet. In winter there is central heating (not so common in Barcelona) and in summer there is a fan. There is of course FREE wifi.

Upon arrival, we are more than happy to provide information and directions and answer any questions. We are both international travellers ourselves.

If you prefer public transit instead of walking, there are several bus lines that pass directly on our street as well as several metro stops within blocks. The closest metro stops are Rocafort (Line 1), Urgell (Line 1), and Poble Sec (Line 3). You can easily get to anywhere in the city.

  • David (email hidden)e apartment is used exclusively for rental to guests, so although we didn't see each other much, David was helpful and there to greet me upon my arrival. The kitchen was clean and well-equipped and the bathroom as well.

    I love the area of Sant-Antoni. It's a nice middle-class residential area, and the apartment is a short walk to the metro station, and surrounded by many great coffee shops, restos, and some shopping. Personally, I'd prefer it to staying close to La Rambla.

  • Location of old town could not be better. Our room was quiet, had aircon, and a small balcony which brought in a lovely breeze. The bathroom was right next to the bedroom which was great.
    The apartment is in a very safe area and is easy walking distance to Sant Antoni metro station (about 5 minutes) if you want to use it, but my husband and I had a wonderful time walking everywhere around Ciutat Vella, Born and Barceloneta. Easy and fast metro ride to La Sagrada Familia. Fabulous restaurants and bars around, I recommend Veggie Garden if you like cheap vegan food (we went there every day), and Elisabets for cheap and simple tapas. There is a supermarket, grocer and laundromat on the street; very handy.
    The room itself is quite small but there is a cupboard where you can stow your bags out of the way. There is another room in the apartment so the bathroom and kitchen are shared obviously with whoever else is staying there at the time. Cons: we stayed for 6 nights; the apartment was only cleaned once during that time. When you are sharing a kitchen/bathroom with other guests, it would be great if these facilities were cleaned more regularly. Our milk also went missing on the last day, but that is not the host's fault; it was just annoying. This room was definitely our most pricey airbnb room experience, but it was a last minute booking, and the convenience of the location and the comfort made it worthwhile.

  • It was great to stay at David's flat. The location with good and every thing clean and relaxed. David was attentive to the fact that the bus stops in a different location going back to the airport than coming from it. This was great to know in advance. I can warmly recommend a stay this nice and quiet location.

  • Pasé unos días muy agradables en Barcelona en la casa de David. La casa estaba muy bien equipada, con todo muy limpio y muy nuevo. El baño, la cocina, el salón, la habitación... todo perfecto. Además la casa está muy céntrica, a unos 7-10 minutos de Plaza Cataluña.

    Y con David muy bien también, muy hospitalario y dando consejos sobre Barcelona. Recomenable!

  • David (email hidden), he was very responsive and met me at midnight for my check in!

    The neighborhood is fantastic, right in the heart of the city center, steps away from a ton of cute cafés and shops and a slew of the famous sights, including plaza catalunya which is a central hub to get you anywhere!

    The apartment is also very easily accessible via the aerobus from the airport and is close to multiple train lines. The space was also very clean and open. Overall a great stay!

    We thought the location was awesome being close to small supermarket downstairs right next door. 5 minute walk to a great bakery around the corner and 10minutes to Las Ramblas. No problem with wifi. Fabulous places to eat,,,must stop at the Attic. Within 10-15 minutes from apartment. The best calamari, salmon and tuna..fabulous stay,,,,we met some wonderful people from France and Australia. Loved Barcelona!!
