The area surrounding the apartment:
The Gaudí apartment is situated right in the centre of Barcelona, literally minutes' walk from the main Square or Plaça called Plaça Catalunya, the famous Las Ramblas, the old town or Gothic Quarter and Borne. The area itself which surrounds the apartment is a body of interconnecting narrow cobble stoned streets where you can wander around aimlessly for hours imagining how it was back in medieval times. The closest point of interest to the apartment is the Palau de la Música which is possibly the most dazzling work of modernist architecture present in Barcelona. This is located a mere 50 meters from the apartment building. Other areas of interest within walking distance from the apartment are the famous Las Ramblas, the Liceu opera house, the Barcelona City Hall on Plaça Jaume, the grandiose Gothic Cathedral which is one block from the apartment as well as the remains of the old Roman Walls coupled with many more treats from Barcelona's ancient and medieval past.
The Gaudí apartment is located on the second floor of the building (as this is an old building, it is actually three and a half flights up as there is an entresuelo and principal level)and NO ELEVATOR, like most other buildings in the Old Town of Barcelona. The entrance hall along with the rest of the apartment has the turn of the century tile flooring typical of era. The living room is a large and spacious area where the combination of soft tones and unique furniture, blending the old with the new, allows you to sit back and relax while enjoying the use of TV and DVD; for the convenience of the guest there is also ADSL. There is a large comfortable pullout sofa bed which is used to accommodate parties of more than two persons staying in the apartment, as well as another comfortable sofa to sit back in and relax...
From the living room of the apartment you are led into the large one bedroom where you will find ample wardrobe space and a large modern double bed. Shutter blinds located directly outside the large windows can be pulled down at night time to completely blackout light from outside making your holiday sleep-in a reality. These blinds are also located in the living room so the guests on the pullout sofa can benefit in the mornings also. A newly installed air conditioning unit is easily operated via remote control.
The kitchen in the apartment is modern and fully equipped for your convenience and is open plan style, so guests are not "cut off" from the rest of the group while preparing a meal... Appliances like blender, juicer, coffee maker and toaster give the guest a feeling of home. Pots and pans, plates and cutlery are all ready for use upon arrival. The bathroom has a rustic look and caters to all your needs along with a hairdryer. Bed linens and clean towels are all provided.
