The apartment is situated in a traditional Catalan block in a busy district. Barrio, El Clot has an authentic atmosphere and is really well connected to all amenities as well as café bars. It's 5-10 mins walk from 3 different metro lines.

The space

This very comfortable double room is one of 3 bedrooms in our apartment. It is an old building simply decorated in the Modernist style with high ceilings and motif styling on the ceramic floors. This, and many others like it in the barrio, were built around the start of the twentieth century (1903-6). Many such buildings exist in this area giving it a very authentic residential feel as well as being an interesting place to visit. We have a separate shower from the WC and a small but fully functional kitchen. WiFi too.

The area is buzzing with local life and there are many café/bistro bars, most of which are very good, feeding the people of the area. They are always busy meaning that every day in the near by streets you will hear a lot of lively chatter which could be about something profound or nothing much at all. Its is very Catalan here with Spanish as a second language but many very helpful traders try out their English (and possibly other languages too) to assist customers. The night life for anyone who like to stay out till the small hours is mainly in the centre. This area is very residential closing relatively early and weekends are not much later either. Ideal for anyone who likes to get up in the a.m. for excursions, visits or a nice breakfast outdoors.

The room has a real, large, comfortable double bed and is fully equipped with things you might need for a short stay. These include, a clothes rail, a bedside table for books/maps/water/glasses etc, a heater in winter months, hanging hooks for coats, a window which opens and a key to lock it when you're out. It also has sockets for charging devices, a reading lamp and some original art on the walls.

Guest access

We have a covered balcony which is extremely bright and sunny. It has a wall of windows to sit at and enjoy the tranquillity of a very large courtyard space to the rear of the building.
Access is through the main entrance to the building and we are on the second floor. Unfortunately, there is no lift but its an easy ascent. The apartment has only one door in the stairwell which is very secure. It has a double lock and a buzzer system that opens the main door downstairs.

Interaction with guests

We are here a lot of the time in between our commitments of work and studying. It is always a pleasure to help people especially here, pointing them in the direction of places we enjoy ourselves. There are so many interesting things to do here we don't know them all but we will be more than happy to help in any way we can. If you need help, we will do our best to explain, translate, direct, guide or figure out what you might need. If you are self sufficient or know the city well, you might inform us of a few more things we don't know. Or, if privacy is what you need, you are free to come and go as you please which we will fully respect.
We provide space in the fridge for your everyday snacks or drinks - yours only. Coffee, uht milk and tea are supplied and we will all share the rest of the kitchen. We will respect your supplies and we ask that you do the same for us. Any smoking is strictly at the windows to the rear of the apartment. However, non smokers will also have full respect too. This is a mutual way of sharing and respect for others is the best way for it to work. The building is full of many kinds of people including some older people and neighbours with small children. This must be respected at all times keeping noise to a minimum, especially later at night. We are NOT a party house and our guest agreement will reflect this when you read it.
We would like people to enjoy staying here as long as they know and respect the circumstances. It is our home as well and good relationships with our neighbours are important to us.

There is a large dining table in the living area and guests are welcome to use it for eating breakfast or having a coffee before heading out for the day. Or, on your return for a nightcap. We also have a smaller, 2 person sized, table at the balcony area which is a lovely place to sit and enjoy the sunlight. I and/or my partner Geraldine, will often be around in the morning but not usually for long. Sometimes we could share a coffee and a chat and some other days, not.

Other things to note

We supply -
fresh towels, sheets, pillow cases, bed covers, clothes hangers, an iron, a hair dryer, electricity, gas water, a large comfy bed and we'll will assist you if we can with any other needs!

The place is very neat and is easily accessible through the bus and metro. It is very close to Sagrada familia. Davy was extremely friendly and helped us out with directions and tips to explore the city. We also had a fun time chatting with the hosts and other guests. Would definitely recommend!

I travelled to Barcelona with my girlfriend and we stayed in Davy and Geraldines home. Before we arrived they gave us helpful information about public transport. When we arrived they gave us a lovely welcome with a little snack. They friendly allowed us to use all their things in the kitchen, living room and bathroom. There is an awesome small balcony where we had wonderful breakfast. We also had some really nice conversations with Davy and Geraldine by enjoying a glass of wine. Furthermore they gave us special advice about things to do in Barcelona. To sum up we totally enjoyed our stay in their charming home and highly recommend to stay there. Thank you both so much for everything. You made our visit so fantastic. Sláinte Pascal & Lisa

We are two girls and stayed 8 days at Davy's and Geraldine's apartment and for "airbnb newcomers" we were positive surprised. The apartment was nice, clean and comfortable and lovely arranged -just like our room we had for ourselves. We were allowed to feel free, so we could e.g. use all stuff of the kitchen or sit on the balcony. The area around the apartment was filled with nice places like restaurants or little stores for getting some croissants for breakfast or vegetables and fruits. You can reach the metro station in 8 minutes and there's a nice walk to the beach (30-40 minutes), too. All in all Davy and Geraldine tried everything for making us feel like home. If there was anything we needed they helped us. Besides they gave us tips, like what we need to see in Barcelona. And if you want, this couple is always available for a nice conversation. ;) There's nothing more to say except: thanks Davy and Geraldine for sharing your home with us and making our vacation in Barcelona so special!

I recommand strongly the trip in Davissss & Géraldine appartement, they are very friendly and take a lot of attention to your confort. You can find all commodities in the flat, private room with all, like an hostel ( water & glasses, Barcelona informations), without Forget the kitchen and bathroom sharing with them. And if you are open To share with them for example during an apéritif they are aware to do that With you

We are two girls and we stayed at Davy and Geraldine for one week. It was our first time using airbnb so we were a little bit „scared“ and didn´t know what to expect but Davy and Geraldine were amazingly kind, they were like friends to us! We were able to use the whole apartment including the kitchen, everything was clean and nice. Metro station is only few minutes of walking and there are lots of little shops with grocery or fruit. Davy and Geraldine were also very helpful and always gave us good advices about the city. So for conclusion I think you would hardly find a better airbnb accommodation in the centre of Barcelona than this one. Again, thank you Davy and Geraldine for everything, we had amazing time staying at your place! Jana and Amy

Davy And This Is Geraldine User Profile

I have been living in Barcelona since September 2015 where I work and practice Art. I studied sculpture making techniques at one of the many art schools here in Between finishing a Fine Art Degree in Belfast. I also teach art making techniques along with my partner, Geraldine. I am interested in music which I love, the outdoors, cinema, travel, food, arts, culture and history. We have visited much of the south in Andalucía and having spent a lot of time in Sevilla, this is our first time living in Cataluña. Barcelona is a very open and friendly City, full of life everywhere with endless interesting things to do. Travelling is always a great experience with fascinating local ways of life, different foods, language, sights, sounds and smells. We love getting lost somewhere and discovering things off the beaten track. These could be simple things like a drink in a locals bar, enjoying an unexpected view of a place, taking in the language or relaxing in a square or a nice corner café.
