Attic flat in Paseo de Gracia

This super-central flat not only has the location, it's got some seriously lush views, too. Taking breakfast and gazing out across all the gorgeous nineteenth-century architecture around here should be one very special start to anyone's day. And inside? A super-clean, modern, one bedroom flat with space for four guests.

Renovated, vintage apartment in Eixample

Just two minutes from Sagrada Familia and with a bus going to the beach stopping right outside the door, this bright and breezy, wonderfully rustic apartment is a great spot for exploring Barcelona. Plus it sleeps four (in two bedrooms), so works out nice and cheap.

Casa del Pi private room

You don't get many better locations than this awesome double bedroom right in the middle of the gothic quarter. It's part of a B&B housed in a gorgeous, listed nineteenth-century building (loads of high, ornate ceilings and palatial doorways) with Las Ramblas right around the corner and street performers entertaining on the street below. Grab a seat on your private balcony and enjoy.

A beautiful yacht in Port Olimpic

Of course you don't have to stay on land. And sure, Airbnb enables you to book massive superyachts (scroll down, big spender) but here's a cheaper way top spend your nights bobbing on the waves.  Parked up in port of Olimpic Barcelona, this very smart little yacht has three rooms, two bathrooms, a living room and plenty of space to lounge up top. And if you want to go for a sail? Your host can sort that out for you, too.

An art nouveau architects' flat

This spacious two-bed flat in Plaza Lesseps, in the trendy area of Gracia, is definitely one for design fans. It's housed within a belter of an art nouveau building (dating back to 1906) and the apartment itself has a great look – think distressed walls next to ornate original features, buffed wooden floors and modernist furniture.

Industrial-style apartment

The key to this cute little apartment is price. It's able to comfortably host six guests (via two bedrooms, four beds and a sofa bed) and it looks the part, too. It's recently been renovated and is tricked out with exposed brickwork, wooden beams and loads of natural light. And it's just ten minutes from downtown Barcelona, too.

Design loft close to the beach

This stylish loft apartment is close to Polblenou – a part of town with loads of very trendy cafés and high-quality tapas bars. And the flat itself? It's a modern, open-plan and design-led loft with a cute little terrace to soak up a little sun. It's away from the more touristy areas, but transport is good.

Hotel apartment close to Sagrada Familia

Fancy an Airbnb stay but also quite like the comfort of a hotel? This stunning three-bed apartment could be for you – you'll have access to a gym and spa, plus there's a daily cleaning service, too. And who doesn't like fresh linen? And then there's that terrace – just look at it.

Luxury villa in Guinardo

Fancy something just a little bit luxurious? This huge neoclassical villa pretty much defines the term – it's got a swimming pool, Jacuzzi and eighteenth-century Chinese vases for heaven's sake. And sure, it's expensive, but it can house 16, so you can really make it work.

A luxury four-bed yacht

Because who's never wanted to spend a few nights on a luxury yacht? This very swanky-looking boat can host eight across its four bedrooms, plus there's a hot tub and a great location moored at Port Olímpic, meaning the Gothic Quarter and El Poblenou are close by.
