This a very nice, cozy and luminous flat in the heart of Barcelona´s Ciutat Vella, in the Raval district. It is in walking distance from Plaza Cataluña, Plaza Universidad and Sant Antoni market, which means that it has excellent connections with various metro, train and suburban rail lines, as well as buses and the aerobus (the bus that connects the air port with the city´s centre.). It is also 15 minutes walking distance from the port and less than half an hour walking distance from the actual beach.
The neighbourhood is hip, lively and multicultural, with plenty of restaurants, bars, galleries and smart shops, but it is not packed with tourists like other districts of the centre. There is almost no traffic as most of the streets that surround the flat are pedestrian ways. Important museums and cultural heritages such as MACBA, CCCB, Maritime Museum, Gaudi´s Palau Guell, Palau de la Vireina, La Boqueria and the gothic Hospital de Santa Creu are all located in the neighbourhood while other points of interest such as Picasso Museum, the Cathedral, the Church of Santa Maria del Mar, the Gothic Quarter, MNAC, Gaudi´s Casa Batlló and Ciutadella park are located within walking distance.
The flat is 55 square meters. It can accommodate up to 4 persons since there is a double bed in the bedroom and a sofa couch in the living room. There is a fully equipped kitchen with a washing machine, a stove and an oven . A special thing about this particular flat are the relaxing views of the rooftops and the Tibidabo mountains from the windows.
The flat is decorated with love and has a bohemian, artistic aura without losing its welcoming, informal feeling. This a a place where anyone can feel at home while experiencing the pulse of the vibrant Barcelona´s centre. Now my little corner of the world can be yours as well. Let´s share it.

As a host, I will answer all your inquiries, even if we do not meet personally (I tend to travel a lot). I will give you directions, insider´s tips and assistance about the flat, the city and your visit. i have a big network of friends that can be proven useful as well. I have been living in Barcelona for 9 years so I know the city pretty much.
Important: The flat is on the 5th floor and there is no lift, something that is very common in buildings of European historical city centres. It has great views because of its heights, and a sense of airiness which is rare to find in an old crammed neighbourhood like El Raval. Most people do not have issues with this fact but it is good to know it if you have mobility problems or you are of a certain age....Read more
