**VINTAGE LOFT** 35m2 with living room , separate bedroom, bathroom, balcony, fridge, etc. in Barcelona CITY CENTER! (Eixample, METRO URGELL) 10min walking to Pl. Catalunya, Rambla, Raval, Gotic, Born, etc. Built in 1906 all renovated, gorgeous vintage ceilings with floral cornices and wooden beams. Lovely balcony with street views. Private space inside my home (see explanatory image)*. We both have privacy, but for anything you need, I live with you guys across the hall :)
The building is dated since 1906, but the apartment has been renovated recently, combining the best of both ages: vaulted ceilings & wooden beams (bóveda catalana) integrated in warm and comfortable materials as parquet and porcelanic as well as all new brand installations.
Pros and Cons:
- People usually like the balcony, the vintage ceilings, the comfortable materials. They value the cozy environment, having everything they need and privacy, but also having me right there in case they need anything. The attention, the local suggestions and tips, being able to leave the suitcases... I hope I will make you feel homely too! :)
- Although the bathroom might be a bit tight, people usually find it fully functional, having privacy and avoiding to share.
The space includes:
- Private balcony.
- Living & Dining room with sofa bed (125x190cm).
- Queen size bed (140x190cm) and bedroom.
- Private bathroom.
- Kitchen utilities.
- Playground cot for babies.
Wifi, lift, heating (gas)... ask if you have any questions!

If you arrive to Barcelona airport it will take you 30-45min to arrive home. For example, if you land at 1am aprox. you probably will be between 1.30-2am. It's not a matter of 5min late, but if I wait for you and you are very late after that time, it might cost a little extra. Kindly let me know if something went wrong on your trip. Thanks for understanding that a breaking sleep is really an extra effort.
> CHECK IN: Depending on the time of your arrival, I might not have ready the apartment until 1-2pm depending on the previous reservation, but in any case you will be able to leave your luggages and have the keys.
> CHECK OUT: Regarding your check out, I also would like to ask if you can have everything ready to leave by 11.30-12pm, so I can clean the room for the next reservation. As well, you will be able to leave your luggages and have the keys in order to profit your last day in Barcelona :)
> THE APARTMENT: The space you are renting is an independent and isolated area inside my house. You will be able to come and go as you please and you won’t be sharing it with other people.
> CLEANING: You will find the space tidy & clean before your arrival, you won't have to clean it before you leave but will be appreciate if you could kindly leave it in good conditions.
> TRUSTWORTHY. I am not a real estate agent, I am a regular person sharing my own apartment. I believe we all can enjoy this Airbnb sharing experience, reason why I trust you coming home.
> MIN 2 PEOPLE. You can rent it as a single or double room, but the price will double room only.
> SMOKE. Due to the elaborated restoration work of the ceilings, (as well as the stink of it), it's not allowed to smoke inside the apartment, but you are welcome to do it in the balcony only, if you occasionally require it.
> PASSPORT OR ID. I will ask to make a copy of your ID on your arrival.
I am Virginia, I am from Barcelona and I’ve been living overseas for a long time although right now I’m settle in Barcelona!!. I love traveling as well as practicing foreign languages, reason why I enjoy very much Airbnb community, either for traveling myself or hosting. In my opinion, it’s really much better than a hotel, not only because the collaborative economy, but also because it’s always nicer to see the place you are visiting from a local point of view. I am a very easy going and respectful person. I’ve had a lot of great experiences traveling around and lodging people while I was sharing in my previous apartment. This is actually the reason why I decided to do my own profile. I hope you’d love to meet me, either in my place or yours! :))))
- I speak Spanish and Catalan as mother tongue and English and a little bit of French as foreign languages -.
Soy Virginia y soy de Barcelona. He vivido mucho tiempo en el extranjero aunque ahora me he establecido en Barcelona!! Me encanta viajar y también practicar idiomas, razón por la cual disfruto mucho de la comunidad de Airbnb, no solo para viajar yo misma sino también para alojar a gente. Realmente pienso que es mucho mejor que un hotel, no solo por el principio de economía colaborativa, sino también porque siempre es mejor conocer las cosas desde la perspectiva autóctona. Soy una persona flexible y muy respetuosa. He tenido la suerte de tener muchas y buenas experiencias con Airbnb cuando compartía piso en mi anterior apartamento. Esta es la razón por la que he decidido crear mi propio perfil. Espero que tengáis ganas de conocerme! Ya sea en mi casa o en la vuestra! :)))))
- Hablo Castellano y Catalán como lenguas maternas y también Inglés y un poquito de Francés -.
