I can offer a double room in a shared apartment, if you want to stay in this special neighborhood called Gracia.
The apartment is on the second floor of an historial and important building from the XIX century. It has the flavour of the old Barcelona. The apartment, inside, is cosy and sweet.
The apartment is perfect for copules, or independent travellers, this is the ideal base from which to explore Barcelona in style.
Little important details:
In the apartment there is elevator, internet wifi, hair dresser , iron and ironing board, bed linen and towels, toaster...
The apartment is fully equipped with all you need to spend short or long periods. The kitchen is fitted with all the usual utensils, crockery and spices. You have an excellent "Llibertat Food Market" just in front of the street where you can buy fresh vegetables, fruit and meat if you want to prepare special dishes. There is a washing machine, a fridge with freezer, and microwave.
The apartment is located in Gracia center.
This location has the best of these three areas of Barcelona. From Gracia area it has the charming, the quite and bohemian way of life with many restaurants, bars, small shops,...and from the Eixample and Sarrià areas (Diagonal and Passeig the Gracia) has the smart boutiques, the Gaudí amazing modernist houses "La Pedrera", "Casa Batlló" and "Casa Ametller". It is only a few meters from Diagonal Avenue and Passeig de Gracia.
Apart from this, the apartment is 15 minutes walking to the old city center (Plaza Catalunya and Gothic area).

HOW TO GET THERE:
There are three possibilities:
A) The easiest way to arrive, but not the cheapest, is taking a taxi at the airport (it costs about 30 euros).
B) Take a train from the airport (Terminal 2) to Passeig the Gràcia. The train leaves every 30 minutes and it costs 3'60 euros per person.
From Passeig de Gràcia you can walk 15' minutes up along to Gran de Gracia. if you are not with big luggage it is a nice walk, you can enjoy one of the best streets of the city.
