We are Lilja and Desh, a couple from Iceland and Nepal living in an apartment in the center of Barcelona, in the El Born district adjacent to the Gothic Quarter. We have a spare bedroom with a single bed, a desk and a wardrobe at your disposal and we love to host visitors and show them around the city! The apartment has a large living room, a dining room and a large terrace with plenty of space for lounging (we have a sun lounger), dining and hanging out amongst our plants. We also have two adorable dogs, so dog lovers are especially welcomed!

About the Area

Our apartment is located in the center of Barcelona, in the trendy El Born neighborhood, right across the street from the Santa Caterina market and very close to the Cathedral. The beach is only a 20 min walk away and landmarks like Ciutadella Park and Arc de Triomf are just a 10-minute walk away. Everything is close by, a lot of shopping streets around with all the services you could think of. Grocery store is located in the same street. The Urquinaona metro stop is a 5-minute walk from us and so is a bus stop with multiple buses running all day and night.

How do I book?

Contact the host to check their availability and ask them any questions you have about staying with them. Once the host confirms they’re available for your dates, you can complete your booking.

When do I pay?

Once a host confirms they're available, you can go ahead and pay the 15% booking fee (maximum of 199 $£€ for longer term bookings) and a 25% deposit using a choice of payments: Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Maestro, Laser, JCB & PayPal. The deposit is collected in advance on behalf of the host to protect against no show or late cancellations (within 7 days of arrival). You then pay your host the balance due on arrival. The 25% deposit payment is made to the host 2 business days after your scheduled arrival date. This deposit payment will only be refunded if you cancel the booking at least 7 full days prior to arrival.

When can I share my contact details?

Host and Guest email address, phone number and home address will be exchanged in a confirmation email sent to both immediately after a booking is completed. It's against our policy for Guests and Hosts to exchange direct contact details via our messaging system.
