The Space

Welcome to Barcelona! You have thousands of Airbnb listings here. So why choose us?

*Location. We are in the VERY center of the Gotico (1 min walk to Plaza del Pi or Boqueria Market on a safe, "secret" pedestrian street, super-quiet at night), and just a few minutes' walk from Plaza Catalunya.

*Apartment. We offer you our cozy, comfortable, clean Modernista apartment and offer a private bedroom with your own bathroom(!) for 1-2 guests, to share the flat with us and our dog, Danko.

*Service. We offer personalized, authentic, 5**** SuperHost service: polite, friendly, knowledgeable hosts. We are not an agency, it's just you and us in the flat.

*Breakfast is included in the price!! :) Tadaaki offers you a fresh, different market breakfast every day with ingredients from the neighboring Boqueria+Santa Caterina markets.

Read on for details, and thanks for considering us! :)
OUR APARTMENT: "Modernista" (Catalan Art Nouveau): original tile floors, high wood-beam ceilings in a 95m2 apt with 5 balconies, all looking down on the street life below. Your guestroom is cozy, incredibly quiet for being in the center of BCN, and has a queen-sized bed, antique wardrobe, and private bathroom w/shower, on one end of the apartment, giving you lots of privacy, + we provide towels & linen, and most bathroom amenities (hair dryer, shampoo, etc etc--just ask!). But we encourage you to use the rest of the apartment as well, for eating, reading, relaxing... And of course we have "insider recommendations" for you upon arrival, for places to visit, eat, and drink. Excellent wifi is free with your own computer/device.

OUR NEIGHBORHOOD: more central is impossible, yet it's quiet at night. 1-min walk to Santa Maria del Pi; and 2 min across the Ramblas to the famous Boqueria market. Super-easy transport: from the main Plaza Catalunya Aerobus stop, it's an easy 8-min downhill walk to our apt. You can walk everywhere from here you want to go.

SUPER-HOSTS: With thousands of offerings in BCN, service really does make the difference. We are a couple, private owners; we are not an agency, this isn't our job, so you will never be a number to us or wondering what time we will show up with your key. You get as much privacy as you want, but we are often home to provide tips and info, chat about living in BCN, solve problems, share wine...

Our apartment is not set up for young children, but we are both gay-and straight-friendly :) Our most popular "host" at home is Danko, our German Shorthaired Pointer. Rescued from a pound in Jerez 5 years ago, he neither barks nor bites, is super-affectionate if you are so inclined, and allergy-free. (Guests confirm that he is the world's sweetest dog.)

Feel free to ask questions, and enjoy your stay!

Saludos Ron+Tdk

We've offered a 20% discount for that time, and you would have the full, 2-bedroom apartment (and be responsible for watering our plants too!). Send us a message w/your proposal.
