Single room with a big and comfortable bed, in a bright and sunny apartment in the trendy Vila de Gràcia. Great location, just a minute walking distance from Joanic metro station and only 3 metro stops from downtown (Plaça Catalunya)

The space

Build in 1885, the apartment has a nice and charming feel, high beamed ceilings, traditional hydraulic tiles on the floor and old wooden balcony and window doors.

The room is interior and has no window, but there’s a pane above the door that allows light to enter. The bed is 110 x 190 cm. There is a closet, drawers and hangers for leave your clothes and suitcases orderly. Bed linens, towels, toilet paper and hairdryer are provided.

Other things to note

I am very flexible. You can arrive late at night and leave early in the morning. If anything is overlapping the checkin/out time would be noon but it should always be possible to leave the bags in the apartment.

Great location, minutes walk from the metro. Xavier is very easy going and has a nice apartment which was really clean and tidy. I had the internal room which was fine, there's a fan if you're missing the window and I left my door open whilst out. Felt very safe and comfortable. There's plenty of air flowing through the apartment and Xavier kept the balcony doors open. Really clean and tidy and very quiet at night.

Xavier's flat is situated perfectly for sightseeing or simply chilling out in Barcelona. There are numerous cafes and bars within a minute or two walking, and it is very close to Joanic Metro station. I was arriving early and Xavier got his mother to let me into the flat and give me keys. The flat is quite basic, but clean and comfortable. I was in the internal room, which felt a bit airless at times, but with the door open and a small fan (which is in the room) placed at the door it was fine. Xavier also has a bigger room for rent which has it's own door onto a small balcony, and this is probably a better option if available. If you have any issue with cigarette smoke then this may not be the property for you. Xavier would make sure that he smoked at his balcony window, but the aroma was around, so if you have asthma then this may not be the best choice. I stayed here for 5 nights and it was great spot for a base. You have the use of the full flat, and everything you need is there. The WiFi is good. Xavier is a nice guy and is happy to help if you need anything.

Xavier was a welcoming host, the flat is in a handy location for the metro (3 mins walk) also easy to walk to the city centre. I would recommend this place.

Great Location - Beautiful Apartment coupled with a SuPer Host. Although arriving late my host gave me enough detailed information, and was always kept informed and super helpful. The apartment really embodies the authenticity of the area and it's architecture. Great transport links literally a stone throw away from the apartment. Basically I'll be returning this summer ! Hoping I find my place back there))

Beautiful big place overlooking both a lovely square and, on the other side, a lovely street that leads to the path up the side of the mountain to the university.

Xavier’s place is nice and clean, and contact with him has been super easy and kind. The room is small but perfect for a short stay in Barcelona, and within walking distance to many bars, shops and city must-sees.

I’m a friendly 36 year old boy born in Barcelona. I’m graphic designer and I like photography, cycling, music, cinema, art and culture in general. I’m working as freelance and finishing/updating my studies after a long time. I love the nature, the beach, the forest, traveling and camping.

I live alone at my apartment. One of my favorites things from Airbnb is that I tend to loose my shyness practicing my english while meeting new people. It will be a pleasure to provide you any kind of information about the city, good places to eat and visit...
