Hello there Jack! Thank you for staying with us! It would be awesome indeed, if we could have an outdoor area, but in the center of Barcelona is pretty much impossible! Luckily we have daily outdoors activities! :) See you soon!

international designer stores. Not to be outdone, the

Not sure if they have smaller rooms. About 45 minute metro ride to airport. 5 minute walk to arc de triomphe station.

They have a Bar, where you can buy drinks - opens at night. But you can buy your own stuff. Inside the train station are many shops. I haven't seen a coffee machine. So I guess not.
