Great simple clean and affordable in the heart of the Barcelona´s Las Ramblas.
More about the area:-
La Rambla can be considered a series of shorter streets, each differently named, hence the plural form Les Rambles (Spanish: Las Ramblas). From the Plaça de Catalunya toward the harbour, the street is successively the Rambla de Canaletes, the Rambla dels Estudis, the Rambla de Sant Josep, the Rambla dels Caputxins, and the Rambla de Santa Monica. Construction of the Maremàgnum in the early 1990s resulted in a continuation of La Rambla on a wooden walkway into the harbour: the Rambla de Mar.
Spanish poet Federico García Lorca once said that La Rambla was 'the only street in the world which I wish would never end'.
The name rambla refers to an intermittent water flow in both Catalan and Spanish, and is derived from the Arabic 'ramla' which means 'sandy riverbed'. The name of the city of Ramla, now in Israel, shares the same origin.

Plaça de Espanya
One of the city's biggest squares, it is the junction of several major thoroughfares: Gran Via de les Corts Catalanes, Avinguda del Paral·lel, Carrer de la Creu Coberta and Carrer de Tarragona, and leads to the Palau Nacional through Avinguda de la Reina Maria Cristina, which houses one of Catalonia's finest museums, the Museu Nacional d'Art de Catalunya (MNAC). It was designed by Josep Amargós. The fountain at the centre of the square was designed by Josep Maria Jujol, a collaborator of Antoni Gaudí, while Miquel Blay designed the statues. The buildings were designed by Nicolau Maria Rubió i Tudurí.
Venetian Towers - they are 47 m (154 ft) tall and lead the way to the MNAC via Avinguda de la Reina Maria Cristina, an avenue commonly used to host trade fairs.
Fira de Barcelona
Parc de Joan Miró - previously known as Parc de l'Escorxador (Abbatoir Park), it is nowadays named after the Catalan painter Joan Miró, whose 22-metre-tall statue Dona i Ocell (Woman and Bird) can be seen in one of its corners.
Arenas de Barcelona, a bullring - It was built in 1900 in the Moorish Revival style and has been converted into a shopping center.
We had a really nice time in Elenas room which was really close to the city center. Elena is a great host, she even picked me up from the metro station and sent a lot of information in advance! The place is really clean and we even had a tiny fridge in the room! Thank you
Excellent location, everything is close, nice host who helps and tells everything you need to know. A little bit noisy for someone who likes peace, but the room and bathroom were very clean. I recomand this place!
Good location in the center, very clean, a little bit too small for 2 persons but perfect for people who want to visit Barcelona's monuments. Elena a very kind person, a "doctor" in recomanding best traditional restaurants.
Wimdu services -excelent !
Amazing place to enjoy Barcelona! As it is close to Las Ramblas and not far from the beach, you are sure to never get bored. Moreover, Elena welcomes you well and gives you any advice that you want :)
Elena was lovely and only too happy to recommend lovely local resturants and tapa's places. The room and bathroon was clean and tidy - which is always nice.
However it was very noisey with outside noise and the room was extremely small.
It's a small and clean room close to the center and to metro. Hosts were really nice and kind even though there were few misunderstandings. Thank you!
Lo mejor ha sido la situación de la habitación, ya que está a cinco minutos de Las Ramblas, y del Puerto Olímpico, pero en cuanto a la habitación en sí mismo, hay que hacer notar que es muy pequeña, tanto que sólo cabe una cama, y prácticamente la maleta no tienes sitio dónde dejarla, también hay una terraza justo debajo de la ventana, motivo por el cual se oía bastante ruido por las noches, en cuanto a Helena, realmente no llegué a conocerla, pero sí a su pareja Jordi, que fué muy agradable, simpático y colaborador, con mucha información de qué hacer en Barcelona, con todo tipo folletos informativos.
