Overview

About the property

Apartment, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

Studio apartment only two minutes from Plaza Catalunya in the heart of Barcelona. The apartment is located in the famous Rambla de Catalunya, one of the most famous streets in Barcelona where you will find the beautiful 'Casa Batlló' and the 'Pedrera' of the famous architect Antonio Gaudí, lined with shops, restaurants and café´s. This quiet and cosy apartment is located on the penthouse floor of a 19th century classic building with a concierge. The studio apartment has a small fully equipped kitchen with a two ring hob, fridge, washing machine and cutlery, pots and pans. The bedroom/living room has a double bed, satellite t-v and free internet via WIFI. The studio opens to a very large sun terrace with table, deck chairs and umbrella.

Barcelona’s extensive Eixample district brings together a large number of modernista buildings of great architectural value. However, it is the central part which showcases most of the buildings designed in this style. Known as the Quadrat d’Or (Golden Square), it is the place where Barcelona’s moneyed classes came to live in the flats designed by the leading architects of the day, such as Gaudí. You will find something to suit every taste in this area, design and fashion shops, relaxing parks and a range of bars and cafes to have your morning coffee in. There are also a good number of restaurants, bars and discos for those looking for some nightlife Barcelona is so famous for.

It can be difficult to resist the temptation to stop and try out some the local pastries & coffees, drinks & tapas or have dinner in some of the most fashionable restaurants in Barcelona.

Towards the bottom of L´Eixample it meets with Plaza Catalunya and the beginning of the Gothic Quarter.

About Philippe Bareilles

Hello, I am born in 1954, I speak english, spanish and french. I was before in the movie business and studied production at NYU in 1980-1983, and since 2005 I dedicate myself to tourism. It is much quieter!

Philippe Bareilles purchased this apartment in 1995

Why Philippe Bareilles chose Dreta de l'Eixample

This property and VRBO Listing #404805 are both the best location Barcelona can offer: the best place in the world. Sea, mountains and countryside in few minutes drive.

What makes this apartment unique

This penthouse is right in the center heart of the city and has a huge deck and it is very calm and quiet.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Je m'étais promis de vous faire une très bonne critique à mon retour de voyage, Je suis un peu catastrophé car apparemment VRBO me dit que j'ai trop attendu pour ajouter un commentaire sur le site. Croyez bien que je le regrette.



Pour votre gouverne sachez que mon épouse et moi avons adoré notre (trop) court séjour chez vous. Nous avons été très bien accueilli et nous avons adoré votre appartement. Nous l'avons trouvé très confortable, nous avons apprécié le confort du lit de même que la salle de bain et surtout la terrasse, idéale pour relaxer après une journée de visite. De plus sa situation fait en sorte que nous n'étions absolument pas dérangé par le bruit ambiant.



Comme tant d'autres avant nous, nous sommes tombé en amour avec Barcelone et trois jours n'est définitivement pas suffisant pour découvrir la ville pleinement. Il y a plein d'endroits que je n'ai pas vu par manque de temps. Nous prévoyons déjà y retourner pour au moins une semaine et lorsque ce sera le cas, soyez assurés que votre appartement sera notre premier choix.

Great location! Perfect for two people.

  • 5 of 5

We had a few days in Barcelona and we really enjoyed our stay at the apartment. It was a perfect size for two people and had everything we needed. There are some stairs involved (not bad - just and fyi - the elevator doesn't go all the way to the top so just one more level of stairs), and the shower and the toilet is built up on a raised platform. Not a problem, but if someone has mobility problems, this may not be for them. The bed was comfortable, the ac was cold, and it was walking distance from everything we wanted. Checking in went without a hitch - Phillippe sent clear instructions and we had no problems. We would stay there again (and hopefully we will!)

Location! Quiet! Clean! The perfect place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

We so enjoyed our stay at the Penthouse. The location couldn't be better, and the apartment is perfectly suited to two people. Comfortable bed, small kitchen, laundry, clean bathroom. You will be right in the middle of the action but won't hear it. The views from the terrace are spectacular. It is centrally located so you can easily reach areas of Barcelona by foot. We'll return for sure!

Great location, very secure and clean and comfortable.

  • 4 of 5

The Accommodation was in a great location, very quiet at night. It was very secure. The studio was clean and comfortable meeting all our needs for a 4 night stay in Barcelona. The host was great to deal with. It was also closed to great cafes and bars.

Lovely studio in the middle of Barcelona

  • 5 of 5

This place was awesome. The location was excellent for seeing many of the Barcelona sights on foot and close to the Metro, too. Phillipe was very responsive for questions that came up. I'd certainly recommend this place for any person or couple spending time in Barcelona.
