I am pleased to offer you my newly refurbished 1870's apartment, which is ideal for couples, families and friends that are looking for beautiful, spacious and high-quality accommodation that is within walking distance of Barcelona's major attractions.
CENTRAL LOCATION: The apartment is perfectly located for easy access to the city's main tourist destinations, from Gaudi's famous modernist buildings, to the trendy medieval neighborhoods of El Born & Gothic (South). Within a 15-minute walk you can be in Plaza Catalunya, Las Ramblas and Passeig de Gracia (West), La Sagrada Famila (North), Parc Ciutadella, El Born or on the beach in Barceloneta (Eest). If you don't want to walk, the metro and buses stop within a block of the apartment. There are restaurants, cafes and grocery stores only a few steps away - so you will never go hungry!
EXPERIENCE BARCELONA'S FAMOUS MODERNIST ARCHITECTURE: My apartment is on the top-floor of a prestigious Eixample corner building, so it has lots of sunshine and an amazing view. It also has a marble staircase and a beautiful antique wooden elevator with passenger seats to effortlessly take you to the fifth floor.
STYLISH, UNIQUE, COMFORTABLE ACCOMMODATION: I recently refurbished the apartment in a way that highlights the classic grandeur of the building and the colorful floor tiles for which Barcelona is world-renowned. Throughout the flat you will see unique pieces of furniture and decorations combined with new high-quality furnishings to give you a sense of the original style in a contemporary setting. The apartment is big (150 sqm), it has high ceilings and a large living room and dining area that seats up to 8-9 people (the picture only shows 6 chairs but there are an additional two store in the master bedroom).
FOUR SPACIOUS BEDROOMS: The four double bedrooms range in size from 12 to 16 sqm. Two of the bedrooms have adjoining doors that can be closed and therefore are suitable as separate rooms or perfect for parents with smaller children who want easy access. All beds have extra wide queen-size Somma comfort mattresses (160 x 200 cm / 63 x 80 inches). The bed in one of the bedrooms is set up as two singles but can also function as a double. Every room has full-length double doors leading onto the balconies, big wardrobes and closets and a unique and fun decorative style.
Air mattress can be made available for a 9th person.
TWO LARGE BATHROOMS: There are two bathrooms, one with shower and bath, and one with a standing shower. One bathroom can be closed off and function as an ensuite to one of the bedrooms.
FULLY EQUIPPED KITCHEN: that includes a dishwasher and a washing machine and all the necessary utensils etc for up to 8 people.
- High speed wireless internet
- 39 inch SMART TV
- Full bedding, towels and beach towels
- Washing machine
- Fully equipped kitchen with range of appliances
- Iron and ironing board
- Coffee and teas
- Cot and high chair for young children if requested in advance
- Toilet paper and liquid soap provided
A 50 Euro cleaning fee will be charged separately upon check-in.
Check-in time 2pm and check out 10.30 but luggage can be stored and timing can be flexible depending on other bookings.
I look forward to giving you a warm welcome to Barcelona and you can be sure of a fantastic stay with lots of hints and tips to all this beautiful city has to offer!

"Perfect place to stay in Barcelona"
Nine of us stayed in this charming, exceptionally clean, and roomy apartment. We would come back here in a heartbeat and two nights were not enough! The photos accurately portray all of the rooms, and the beds were very comfortable (great nights of sleep). Even though the building is on a busy road, the bedrooms were soundproof with the windows closed. Another plus was the air conditioning worked beautifully. As for the location, it was perfect for us. The metro was nearby if needed and there were restaurants within walking distance (Charles recommended the best restaurants - loved La Flauta). Usually the downside to renting an apartment vs. a hotel is you lose the benefit of front desk staff helping you navigate the city. Not an issue here. The owner, Charles, was amazing. While we didn't get the chance to personally meet him as he was out of town at the time, he was exceptionally responsive with emails, helping us with whatever questions we had. He even arranged transportation for us from the airport to the apartment and then from the apartment to the cruise port. The service he used was reasonable and so wonderful. He left a booklet for us in the apartment with suggestions on restaurants and what to see along with a city map. We felt like locals with our new found knowledge and Barcelona was that much more wonderful because of it. We were wanting for nothing other than more time here and we would definitely stay here again should we be so lucky to get the chance to return to Barcelona.

"Spacious 4 BR apartment convenient to Metro in Eixample."
We enjoyed our stay in the beautiful and spacious 4 BR apartment on Grand Via. The Metro stop was 1/2 block away and Passeig de Gracia was a 8-10 minute walk. The area was quiet at night and felt safe after dark. The landlord gave us a list of helpful hints and restaurant suggestions.

Stayed with 5 friends to celebrate my 40th birthday.the apartment was absolutely gorgeous, with lots of beautiful furniture. Gorgeous balconies on which to enjoy some afternoon sunshine after a morning sightseeing. Fabulous location, walking distance to many great attractions. Charles was very helpful, recommending restaurants (fabulous Salamanca for paella), booking taxis and allowing us to store luggage. Lovely attention to detail leaving postcards ready stamped! Would definitely stay here again and would recommend it!

"A magnificent find!"
This was an absolute gem of a find! The building was stunning with a very traditional lift to take 4 up at a time to an amazing apartment. Every room was as nice as the next one, we had the Penelope suite, next to the yellow bathroom, a great view, all had balconies and views. Wardrobes, hangers, bedside lamps, hairdryers, lovely bedding, comfy beds, BIG fluffy towels, all home comforts. A great communal area for us to sit around in. A well equipped kitchen, if you wanted to cook, but we ate out, except for breakfast. The idea of us all being together was a great one, much better than booking hotel rooms and having to meet in the reception at a set time, I don't think any of us would have no qualms in booking this apartment again. Perfect location - I'm ready to book again !! I would certainly recommend these apartments to other groups of friends. Charles was more than helpful and very knowledgeable on the area and places to visit, he recommended a lovely restaurant for our Saturday night out, Sensi, great tapas. Till the next time!!

This flat was fairly new, but it had great reviews. I am an frequent Tripadvisor user and trust people's review on here. This one deserves the highest rating.
The flat is situated in a beautiful and quiet part of Barcelona.The building itself is beautiful and the antique elevator ride quite the experience bringing you up the last floor (only two big apartments per floor. We stepped into this massive spacious flat with the beautiful classic Eixample floor tiles. There were four of us, but the flat would be great for four couples or more as the bedrooms are very big. The flat sits on the corner of the building so there is a beautiful view of the neighborhood. Each room is tastefully decorated with old and modern furniture. Really beautiful. It feels like you have stepped into a high-end boutique hotel but with a very personal touch. The location is amazing as well! It is literally just next to everywhere. A 15-minute walk took us to the marina, Las Ramblas, Sagrada Familia, Plaza Catalunya and Passeig de Gracia. For longer trips, the metro is right there, a 3min walk away. The host was really nice, efficient and accurate in accommodating us and guiding us in the days we spent in Barcelona. As we only spent a few days there, his suggestions optimized our time and improving our choices. His suggestions for restaurants were spot on. VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
