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.

I have also another condo at the same address: VRBO Listing #404805

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 Barcelona

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

Philippe's Penthouse was, in short, INCREDIBLE. Located a few blocks north of Las Ramblas, it was very convenient to explore the nightlife and tourist spots of Barcelona. The apartment itself was impeccably clean and so very comfortable. Philippe was an amazing host- he left several tour guides and even compiled his own (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) maps of spots around the apartment to explore. He also left a very large bottle of water for us when we checked in, which was very appreciated. We didn't use the kitchen at all, but during our tour at check-in, I saw that there was just about every basic amenity there for anyone to use. Philippe had Arejeanne help us with check-in and she was so nice and thorough in showing and explaining the apartment and protocols. I cannot speak more highly of this apartment and Philippe!

Great Location

  • 5 of 5

In a perfect location and big enough for two people without feeling cramped, this apartment has everything you need for a stay in this beautiful and vibrant city. The terrace is amazing and gets the sun for most of the day. The bed was very comfortable and we slept really well.

We would definitely stay here again when we return to Barcelona.

Perfect location and great apartment

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is located perfectly on Rambla Catalunya in a lovely part of the Eixample district. The building is very secure and very nice inside. The apartment is definitely snug, but has all that you need to enjoy your stay. The terrace is huge and is just marvelous--a true highlight of the property. The owner is very gracious and provides all the info you could need, including a comprehensive map of all amenities in the area. We loved it!

Great unit for your stay in Barcelona

  • 5 of 5

Loved our 10 day stay at this apartment in Barcelona! The apartment is clean, perfect safe location, communication was spot on from the moment of booking, and until departure. We so enjoyed the patio in the morning for breakfast as well as in the evening which is such a plus. The location is close to restaurants, the metro, and pretty much everything. There are plenty of guide books for you to use in the apartment which is helpful as well. Just loved our stay here, and when we plan to return to Barcelona, I would definitely stay here again.

Great Apartment-Wonderful Location

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I recently stayed in Barcelona for a week following a ten day cruise. Never knowing if we would have this opportunity again we made our reservation with Philippe for this apartment.

This was a wonderful apartment in one of Barcelona's prime locations in my opinion. We were close to the Metro, trains, cabs etc and it was easy to make our way around the City-- beside our own walking tours. You are able to walk to many of Barcelona's attractions from here.

This apartment is well furnished and markets are close by. The air conditioning was great for the hot days. There is a small refrigerator, washer, umbrellas, European electrical adapters etc.--- and all the comforts of home. There is also a huge deck we were able to relax on after a long day of city hikes.

Could not have asked for more and would love to return someday.
