Very charming all renovated 60m2 penthouse with 30m2 terrace, with one bedroom, one bathroom, a large living space (entrance + living room + kitchen). Good for your heart since it’s a 5th floor without lift (sorry about it, often like that in old Barcelona buildings…).

The kitchen has a refrigerator, a grill/microwave oven, a gas coock-top and a dish-washer.

In the room you’ll find towels, bed sheets, etc, an iron, and a hairdryer. There’s a laundry disposer in the terrace. In the kitchen there’s a Nespresso coffee machine and an electric kettle. In the living room you’ll find a Bose sound system for iPhones/iPods, WiFi connectivity and a flat TV.

The flat is at the very center of the city :
- 10 minutes walk from Las Ramblas, Liceu, La Boqueria, Palau Guell (Gaudi House) Plaça Reial, Columbus monument…
- 15 minutes walk from Plaça Catalunya, Maremagnum, Plaça Sant Jaume, Gothic district…
- At 150 meters from the gay bars of Raval District, at less than 15 minutes from Eixample gay district (most of the bars, Metro Disco)
- 10 minutes from all underground lines which will allow you to go easily to every other part of the city (beaches, Gaudi monuments…)

We spent a weekend in January at Thomas's place. His mom came to meet us, and gave us such a warm welcome. Beautiful place. Really wonderful way of creating new friendships. Can hardly wait for the next opportunity to visit Barcelona again.
Thanks, Thomas. Your apartment and hospitality, with supplying us with information about things to do in Barcelona, was just wonderful.

Mauro and I stayed at David&Thomas lovely penthouse in Raval District in Barcelona. It was my first experience with HATW and I was so lucky. Conversation was easy with David from the first contacyt in april till the arrival. We chat a lot before arriving. Unfortunatly we didn't meet David&Thom as they work in Paris. They even gave me options to come earlier than the date agreed in order to meet them in Barcelona. David's parents came to the apartment to bring us the keys and it worked very well. The apartment is perfect, very nice clean style decoration, with everything you need, everything brand new, shower is a plus. They sent me a complete guide of what to do in Barcelona, and they were easily reachable by phone during the entire stay. I tried to follow the guide, but I would need many more days to go through everything they wrote. My words would never describe such a good experience I had.
I am so happy to have exchanged home with them. And I am looking forward to meet them in Rio.
I am very glad to have met them at HATW.
Thanks david and Thom

If you want to see Barcelona, there is hardly any place more original or more convenient than that of David and Thomas. We stayed in their cute rooftop flat for 10 days around Easter 2017, and we loved it: smartly furnished, great look (in particular the floor) and great terrace. When you step out of the house, you are in the heart of Raval, close to the tourist spots without being touristy, and with a lot of good bars and restaurants in walking distance. And David and Thomas are great hosts and guests alike - everything was impeccably prepared, and they left our place (twice in two years) tiptop. Five stars from Clemens and Tobias.
