The space

Feel like a local staying at a typical Barcelona Apartment right in the downtown. Just in front of “La cathedral del Mar”, a fantastic and famous church in Borne Neighborhood, full of nice squares with restaurants or bars to have some tapas, wine or coffee. Is a bohemian and trendy area with many uniques stores. You can enjoy to stay in one of the oldest buildings of Barcelona and to have a great time in the city. This is a perfect well located flat, even the locals will want it!
We have subway and busses very near, but if you want to walk (that is the best way to live the city) you can find in 2 minutes the Basilic of Santa María del Mar, Picasso Museum, Estación de Francia, and 5 minutes the Ciutadella Park, the Zoo, Arc of triumph, Gothic area, the Cathedral of Barcelona, and in just 15 minutes you will be enjoying a lovely walk at the port, Plaza Catalunya, Las Ramblas, The Boquería Market and the Beach. Other perfect way to know the city is renting a bike and ride it all around, and guess what?… We have a bike rental just down stairs!
The apartment has a lot of light, and is very comfortable and clean. We have 1 double private room for rent (the apartment has 2 more rooms, but me and my friend we live there) and there is a full bathroom and kitchen for shared with us. wifi available. Also you will find Coffee, sugar and basic cooking ingredients.
The apartment is on a 2nd floor by stairs, no elevator, so make sure to pack light (no need to bring hair dryer or iron).
We are offering a big double comfortable room with a balcony. It has a double bed and 1 single sofa-bed. For 3 or less is perfect.
Also has a nightstand, closet, mirror, and heater. This is a perfect room to rest and also if you need it, work while you are in the city. We provide to you towels and bed linen.
BCN has a lot of night life, and this is the downtown!, maybe the nights coudl be a little noisy!
Feel free to ask anything you need, we will love to help you:)

I was well received by Paula's partner. He explained me the house rules, gave me tips about getting around and about and places of interest to visit in Barcelona with a local map. Location of the flat is in the heart of the city centre in close vicinity of the historic church of Del Marr. Beach is around 20-25 minutes walking distance and commuting to various parts of the city by metro is within 10 minutes walk. There are many resturants, pubs and night clubs around the busy square beneath the flat which makes the place a bit noisy late in the night and in the early morning church bells wake you up. Large room is reasonable but coud do better by upgrading of the furniture and sound proofing of the flat. There is no lift in the building and the flat is on the second floor which could be a problem with elderly people and people with arthritis. Over all reasonble for few nights stay but could be better with slight improvements in interior decoration and sound proofing.

Response from María:
Hello, thanks a lot for all your recommendations, i really appreciate them and you can count that we will take care to improve in all we can... but i think that you had some unnecessary surprises, and that is because you didn't read well my announcement or even my messages before you book the room. I'm very careful telling everyone how is going to be the apartment and what it supposes, that is why in my detail description says that this is a sharing apartment with other guests but you will have a private room; i mention too that as we are at downtown, nights can very a little noise... and also i say that this building doesn't have elevator and is a second floor!... and to be sure, when my guest send the request i answer with some details about the apartment and remember the conditions... so, that is why i can see that you didn't read it well... and i'm very sorry that it wasn't what you expected. Thanks a lot for your other advices (decorations and sound). This is the only way that i can improve my place. Take care and say hi to the family. best regards! Paula

The room was comfortable and clean with a very big bathroom. Perfect location, close to the beach and we didnt take metro even once because it's located at a walking distance to everything: La Rambla, Gothic Quarter and the city central Catalunya. Paula was a great host, very friendly and helpful. Highly recommended.

Hi, I'm Paula Cifuentes. I'm from Colombia but i live in Barcelona from the last 10 years. I'm 34, i'm professional in musical theater, and i love to travel. I'm very responsable and serious with my things. I love to know people, cultures and share with them, so i think a very nice way to do it is living with and like a local in the citys where i go, thats why i love to rent my place to travelers also and offer them a real, nice and comfort stay in Barcelona
