There are rooms to rent in this 1st floor-apartment in North Barcelona. This is an interior property that minimises outside noise, and there are lots of windows throughout to let in fresh air.
This is a property that feels like home - not least because it has a live-in landlord!

There is plenty of storage space for your food and drink in the kitchen, which also has a washing machine, electric stove and oven. All of the bedrooms are fully furnished and have independent keys for security. Finally, bedroom 3 leads to a utility room with storage space, a second washing machine and clotheslines for drying your clothes.

The living here is easy. Relaxing. A different pace to the rest of Barcelona.
Come and see.
What can I do here?
Explore the old town of Horta. It used to be a village and still feels that way. You won’t find many tourists here.
Can Mariner is a library in a 17th-century farmhouse. It specializes in theatre, local knowledge, and workshops.
Plaça d'Eivissa is a tiny plaza with bars and all the rest.
Louise Se Va is here. It’s a bar with a young crowd. The friendly staff serve beer, burgers, and salads at low prices. The music rocks.
All in all, it’s bueno, bonito y barato.
L'Eivissenca is also on Plaça d'Eivissa. It sells yummy ice cream. It also sells granizados de pomada (gin with crushed ice and lemonade). Naughty.
Contemplate the Catalan modernist architecture of the former Sant Pau hospital.
Recreate scenes from Labyrinth at Parc del Laberint. Sandstone steps and pillars, a leafy green maze – it’s all rather refined. You can look out over the city from one of the many viewpoints too. €2.50 entrance.
Come the night, go to neighbouring Gràcia or the Eixample. Your adventure is waiting.
One of Horta-Guinardó’s best-loved vantage points is the Búnquers del Carmel. These are abandoned anti-aircraft bunkers used during the Spanish Civil War. Historic.
