Make your visit to Barcelona memorable staying in this fantastic, large, modernist (art nouveau) style apartment with a great patio, walking distance to many tourist attractions and a 13 min pleasant walk to Barcelona´s center!
This beautifully classical place, in the modernism style, is on the first floor of a traditional 19th century building in the Eixample district, very centrally located in an area with great selection of restaurants and bars, close to public transportation and with many stores and supermarkets nearby.
If your group consists of 6 or more people, why stay in a small apartment with insufficient showers, toilets and rooms and no air conditioning in all rooms (a basic need for Barcelona from June to September)? For just a bit more this apartment offers you 4 bedrooms, three toilets, two showers and AC throughout to make your stay comfortable and pleasant!!
It is an 6 min walk to Pl. Universitat (red metro line running north-south), 7 min to Passeig de Gracia, the upscale shopping artery of the city (yellow and green metro lines running east-west) or Hospital Clinic (blue metro line) metro stations. Many buses stop 1-2 mins walk from the apartment.
The apartment is 110 m2 plus 40 m2 for the patio (1185 sq ft+430 sq ft), with very high ceilings with original plaster crown molding (two of them polychrome), and beautiful floors with original caustic tiles. It has been just restored, faithfully following the original floor plan and style, but with an up to date reinterpretation.
The apartment has a bright sun room, a large dining room connected to a large living room, a total of 4 bedrooms, all with air conditioning: two of the bedrooms face the street but double windows with double glass block a lot of the street noise, the other two bedrooms are to the inside and are quiet. All bedrooms have plenty of closet space. It has a total of four double beds all of which can be converted into twin beds, so up to 8 people can sleep without having to share a bed. It also has a fully equipped kitchen. It is not a modern or very big one but has all you might need to cook plus dishwasher, microwave, Nespresso coffee maker, electric kettle, toaster and large refrigerator. There are two full bathrooms (one with shower and one with bathtub) and one half bathroom. There is a washer and a dryer, 3 TVs with either cable or satellite international channels (one TV in each of the two big rooms, and one in the living room) and WiFi.
And the most amazing and unique, the large patio to chill out in the evenings or have memorable dinners. I provide you with blankets and there are space heaters, so even if it´s a bit chilly you can sit outside under the canopy.
The building has elevator and intercom.
We provide you with two pre-paid local cell phones so you can communicate with each other if you break up into groups, 100% cotton white ironed linens, towels, beach towels, table cloths, ironing equipment, slippers/flip-flops (on request), 3 hair dryers, 2 hair irons, shampoo, conditioner, soap, body lotion and assorted toiletries. Also, complimentary Nespresso capsules, tea bags and ground coffee, plus basics for cooking like oil, vinegar, salt and spices…
Check in and check out are flexible, except in cases in which there is a group coming/leaving the same day (doesn't happen often), in which case check out is before 10 am and check in is after 3 pm, although you can leave your bags in the apartment.
The whole apartment fits a maximum of 8 people.
Please be reminded that this is an apartment within a residential building. It is VERY important not to disturb the neighbors, so no parties or loud music are allowed at any time, but specially in the patio. Talking in the patio should be limited to near whisper after 11 pm. Also, you can invite over, during the day, one or two guests that you know from before your trip to Barcelona, no more, and occasionally, but under no circumstance there should be overnight guests or anybody who you just met...

She was in the appartemet to greet the first person arriving, giving hints and tips where to go,. where the next market was, how to get into the city. Advised on various restaurants for our celebration of a birthday of two people, thought about prices and recomanded also expensive as well as reasonable priced restaurants. Her mum had prepared a light lunch for the arrival, She was ever so thoughtful. One did feel at home and not in a rented app. It was just great
