Other Barcelona Properties apartment description
For an extremely unique, penthouse-style look, the spacious and extravagant Palau Catalunya apartment, in its most central Barcelona setting, definitely fits the bill.
Marble wall art, a sunken jacuzzi, pristine art deco furnishings and a smooth colour palette are set off by the very exclusive, panoramic views of Plaza Catalunya and the city centre.
It has been fitted to the highest standard. And the broad windows with balcony offer both sunshine and a tantalising impression of Barcelona, in this brilliant, luxury apartment.

ReviewsWrite a review
What's to like about this apartment : My wife and I spent 10 nights in this apartment. The place was clean, fashionably decorated and full of beautiful art pieces. Apartment faces Placa de Catalunya, one of Barcelona's major plazas, and offers stunning views of the city, the mountains, etc. through the floor-to-ceiling windows. We enjoyed having our coffee and pastries in the morning looking out at the plaza. It's on the 9th floor so you can see vistas from Montjuic (west) to Passeig de Gracia (east). The location is at the epicenter of Barcelona--the Ramblas and Av Portal de l'Angel (high-end retail fashion stores) are a half block away. The waterfront is a 30 minute enjoyable walk. Born, El Raval, Eixample, and the Barri Gotic (old town) sections are just steps from your front door. The Metro and buses were just outside the front door when some place we wanted to experience, e.g., Sagrada Familia or Estadi Olimpic, was farther than we wanted to walk that day. We purposely did not stay at a hotel; we wanted to "live" in the city as much as possible. This apartment gave us the opportunity to really see and enjoy Barcelona the way it should be experienced. It exceeded our expectations. What's not to like : Not much. The toilet didn't have a toilet seat. This didn't bother my wife or me - just thought it was curious. You must pay by cash - no credit card, no PayPal. You can pay by wire. I looked into this method of payment and decided hassle and expense wasn't worth it, so I got euros through a local bank. There is some noise from the street. But to me the noise was part of the experience I expected from the location of the apartment, i.e., it's at the center of what's-happening, like a hotel room on Times Square in New York City(which I've experienced a couple times). I considered the noise as not distracting (didn't keep us from going to sleep!), almost like "white noise". What's really great about this apartment : The photos on the sight do not/can not convey the beauty of this apartment and the panoramic views it offers. The art in the place is museum quality. The jacuzzi is big enough for two, so at the end of a day of exploring, it and a glass of wine was just perfect. Already mentioned the location, but really there is not a more ideal location to "experience" Barcelona. And, last but certainly not least, was Francisco, our landlord and neighbor. He was our best friend in Barcelona! Muchas Gracias, Francisco.
