In my free time I train in Krav Maga, do weightlifting, read sci-fi, and write software.
I enjoy traveling and trying new cuisines.

Abraao was a very helpful and welcoming host with great communication. He sent us emails with detailed directions to his place and other useful information and went our of his way to help us with some problems. Although, sparse, the apartment was spacious, clean and in a great location that was close to dining the Metro, shopping and La Rambles.
Abraao is a great host, he was always ready to help us, showed us all the directions we wanted to go, introduced us the famous sightseeing places , and good restaurants. His place is next to the city hall, very convenient for us to visit the old town. We had wonderful time there.
He can speak English fluently, which is very convenient for Dick to chat with him. He is very friendly, polite to us, even cooked his country style food for our breakfast. He made us feel like at home.
I will highly recommended his place to visitors.
Agree with almost all of the reviews here that the location of Abe's apartment is great! It's in the heart of the Barri Gotic, just a 3 minute walk to Pl Jaume and about 5 minute walk to the Metro. The day we arrived was Good Friday, and we were able to watch the procession on the way to Barcelona Cathedral right on the terrace.
Abe offered help to look for details on the things we wanted to check out even before we arrived. The apartment is on the 2nd floor and has no lift but Abe helped us with our luggages. He let us borrow his Top 10 Barcelona guide book and left fruits, milk and juices for us in the fridge.
I'm sure this is the first time that it has happened (as Abe graciously gave us a partial refund) but on our first night, there was no power in whole apartment so we got cold. Power wasn't up until 8am. We're a group of 5 friends who stayed in the apartment and the hot water was not enough for all of us to shower. This is not a problem if the weather was a lot warmer and if there were less people staying. This forced me and one of my friends to move out and check in to a nearby hotel since I can't take cold showers.
Abe is an incredible host with a beautiful apartment in a really excellent neighborhood. We were traveling by car with our dog and Abe thoughtfully bought food for her that was ready upon our arrival, then he graciously took us out to show us a few bars in El Born. We could not have asked for a better experience, or a better introduction to Barcelona for my parents on their first visit to Spain. The apartment is in the Gothic Quarter and is remarkably easy to find (a feat for those tiny serpentine streets) and quiet despite its central location, and is wonderfully spacious and clean and well appointed. And Abe! The best! Já tenho saudades...
Fantastic location in the heart of Barcelona. Abraao is a very kind and helpful host, who gave us helpful hints. We appreciated very much The sparkling wine, the coffee and the fruits. We will definitely will come back.
Abe is a very reliable guest. He even welcomed us with some Cava bottles for our New years eve (thanks again!!) The apartment is located in the center, where is worth to spend some days as real inhabitant of the city. If you are planning a trip to barcelona, I strongly reccomend it!
Nice apartment, abe was very friendly, gave us a tour of the apartment and gave us some helpful tips for restaurants etc.
He was also very flexible for check in/out hours.
i would definitely recommend it, location is perfect.
Very comfortable, clean, convenient with a friendly and helpful host.
We stayed at Abe's apartment from 7-9 October. Abe had sent us directions to his apartment well before our arrival and was easily reachable on phone. The apartment is very convenient for 3-4 people. Abe was kind enough to show us around in the apartment, helped us get information about restaurants, sensation white (event) and inform us about how to get to the famous landmarks. He's a good communicator and a warm person.
Getting to the apartment, the location is FANTASTIC. I have been to Barcelona before and my biggest worry was safety of luggage (as this was our last leg and we did shop a bit in Europe). The apartment is a 30 second walk from Las Ramblas and is absolutely safe. Taxis are cheap in Barcelona but if one would like to take the metro, the station is a minute away by foot. Tha apartment is not fancy but serves the purpose of leaving your luggage safe and getting a good night's sleep. The balcony attached to the room is a great place for pre drinks and smoking and offers a great view of the hustle and bustle. My friends who had never been to Barca before have thanked me multiple times for choosing such a great apartment, literally on Las Ramblas, and such a warm, friendly host.
Thanks again Abe, your place is highly recommended. Will stay here next time I'm in Barca as well.

Abraao spent a weekeend with his friends in our apartment in Berlin. The communication between us before and during his stay was great. He is a very nice and friendly person. And they left a very tidy and clean apartment behind! I reccomend him to other hosts!
Abraao and his wife are very good guests, the contact was very good and the appartment was clean. Thank you for the chorizo, it was very good!
Very nice and friendly guests. They stayed a few days at my place in Brussels and everything went fine. Recommended!
Fully recommend, really nice guests, without any problem. :-)
AAA+ guest, all the best
Abraão and Pili were an absolute pleasure to host. They are the epitomy of fantastic guests and really represent what AirBnb is all about. We had a fantastic experience hosting them. They are intelligent, witty and very friendly. Without hesitation, we would recommend as guests to all hosters around the world.
Abraao and Pili are wonderful guests. We liked them immediately,we had nice conversations, they are very helpful it was very nice to see them play with our dog. We are happy to have met them and had them as guests in our house. Always welcome again.

Abraão and Pili are very friendly. My mother loved receiving them and she misses them. She hopes to see them again one day in Spain to drink sangria. :)
J’étais dans cet agréable appartement l’été dernier et je suis très satisfaisant de mon séjour. L’appartement se trouve en plein Barcelone et par conséquence proche de beaucoup de jolis sites. Effectivement, il se situe à 5-10 mn du métro et notamment du port de Barcelone que je peux marcher pendant 15 mn pour y aller. L’intérieur est propre, clair et spacieux, les fenêtres s’ouvrent sur deux rues qui m’ont permis de vivre une ambiance culturelle de la ville, les propriétaires sont sympas et ils m’ont donné des conseils utiles sur la culture et où sortir…. Bref, J’ai bien passé mon séjour qui dure pendant une semaine dans cet appart et je vous le recommande fortement.
The apartment is new and spacious inside. I really enjoyed the neighborhood, it's close to everything: metros, convenient stores, shopping, restaurants, sightseeing places. The neighborhood is also safe, there's a big government building right close by. The location is very central. I loved my stay there and would recommend anybody to try it.
I stayed here twice over the past two years, last time this May. The place is unbelievable - it's enormous, in the center of Barcelona. This is a perfect spot to explore the city from. Next 2 metro lines as well as a big taxi stand. La Ramblas is a 2 minute walk. There are a ton of shops and tapas bars next it. Two huge balconies from which can watch the frequent parades. In the summer, it's breathy even when it's hot out. I agree with the title, at this spot you feel like a king.
