Barcelona, Spain

Cosy place near the centre

Apartment 2 1 1
About Our Home
Our home is a cosy apartment near the heart of the city. You can walk to the main area in about 20 minutes. Very near metro and buses from/to airport. Lots of sightseeing and shopping within walking distance. The perfect place to discover the beautiful city of Barcelona. The flat has got a sunny, beautiful living room facing the main street, a big, fully-equipped kitchen (no dishwasher) and a quiet bedroom at the back. A small laundry room as well. Everything is in good condition. The block is a typical modernist catalan building, dating the 1900. We have a very friendly and beautiful cat pretty used to having traveller owners.
Special Considerations
No plants, but we do have a cat which needs food refillment every now and then.
All kind: from the best exotic oriental to one of the best typical Spanish tapas bar.
10 minute walk to the most exciting bars in the city. Gay area, mostly.
All kind of supermarkets and late-opening small shops all around. Shopping centre in old bullfighting ring 10 minute-walk.
10 minute-walk from MACBA, 15 to Miro's and MNAC
Busy street, bike friendly roads and mostly: safe and local.
We are in between the famous Gothic area (Ramblas) and Plaza España.
Special Events
Events happening in BCN (Parades, marathons, car shows) can be comfortably seen from huge windows. They all pass our door.

  About Us

  1. We are a relaxed, respectful couple in our middle 30s. No children.
  2. Carlos works as a freelance in design (3D, after effects, etc), I am the head of studies in a secondary school. Yes, I do work with teenagers, maybe that's why we have no children...
  3. We love travelling and meeting people. Not really party lovers, more... urban day-explorers.
