About the property

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

License HUTB-009936

Cute and fully refurbished studio at only 10 minutes walking to Plaza Cataluña or to the Ramblas, with great views of Sant Antoni market in the Eixample quarter . The studio is situated on the first floor (principal) of a building without elevator. Since the apartment faces the XIX century market the open views let the sun get through the balcony window in the morning and a pleasant light during the day.

The apartment has recently been refurbished, with high quality and modern but warm materials like microconcret and wooden floors. Fully equipped: full kitchen, dining area for two or four, washing machine, dryer, and a modern and comfortable bath-room. All details have been carefully chosen.

Sant Antoni neighborhood is a typical area where you can experience the real Barcelona life with a lot of places to eat “tapas” (especially at the new Ferran Adrià’s bar, only four blocks away), to have a good dinner or to drink a wonderful Spanish wine. This is not a tourist area (yet) prices are not crazy, the bakeries offer real bread and the hidden tapas bar are not fashioned or tricky. They have been here always. It's one of our local treasures.

We encourage guests to experience Ferran Adrià food performances. Try to make your own tapas in the small but well equipped kitchen. There is a temporary market just one block away, while St. Antoni market is being refurbished. There you can get all kind of fresh food or delicatessen items in the shops around the apartment. You'll get an extensive list of amazing places near it.

Furthermore, the location allows you to walk almost everywhere. Reach easily the city center from Plaça Catalunya and visit all the Gaudi's musts. Walk through the Raval and get to the Ramblas and Boqueria market. Walk through the theater district, Paral·lel, to the harbour and the marina promenade. Or walk up Montjuïc in a whole day of awesome museums and gardens.

Keywords: Studio, one room, one modern bathroom, close to the city center, safe neighborhood.

About Mar Mellado / Xavier Vegué

I'm from Barcelona and I love this city. I have always lived here.

One of my favorite hobbies is photography. I have a group of friends with the same interest and we usually go with our cameras to take pictures of our city; we discover every time new places unseen or despite we repeat places or neighborhoods we always find a new look of them.

Mar Mellado / Xavier Vegué purchased this studio in 2010

Why Mar Mellado / Xavier Vegué chose Barcelona

I am a Barcelonian, I like this city very much and this part of the Eixample, the Sant Antoni neighborhood, is special because is a very local place just at 10 minutes walking from the center. The best tapas bar's are located in it, some of them at 2 or 4 blocks from the apartment. It's a very alive neighborhood with good restaurants, special and nice bars and wine shops where you'll enjoy as if you were a true Barcelonian. The ancient market, fromt the XIX Century is a nice architectonical piece just at a glance.

What makes this studio unique

Is a new and comfortable place, carefully refurbished. It is quiet, nice and has all the amenities you could need.

The neighborhood is full of interesting places to visit like the sunday old books market, restaurants, typical bars, tapas bars, theaters... The old city is only at 10 minuts by foot where there are the most interesting monuments and museums.

You can be a 'barcelonian' for some days spending time at the studio. It is located in a not 'turisty' place but at only few minutes walking for everything you can see in this city. I love the place and I'm sure our guests will enjoy it!

The absolutely best apartment location for a visit to Barcelona

  • 5 of 5

This is a very well-designed studio apartment with lots of thoughtful amenities to make it comfortable. We loved staying here and will definitely return the next time we're in Barcelona. There are plenty of restaurants within two blocks of the place, and you are in a quiet upper middle class neighborhood, an easy walk to many of the points of interest. There are crowds of visitors exploring Barcelona's Gothic Quarter, for example, so it's great to walk down, see the sights, and return to some tranquility, a meal and a bottle of wine. There are wine shops in the area, and a green grocer on virtually every other corner. And blessedly, there's a washer & dryer in the apartment. For a couple spending a week, this was just ideal.

We enjoyed the week in Barcelona and found our hosts most helpful with transportation advise and suggestions. You do have to be careful with the elevated bed.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this apartment.

It is situated in a quiet neighborhood with every amenity close at hand. The apartment is very secure, outfitted with everything a visitor needs, and the owner is very organized regarding recommendations for nearby restaurants, must see sights, etc.

Would recommend unequivocally.

One caveat: the very comfortable double bed is situated on a platform 10" or so above the rest of the apartment floor. Unless you take careful note of this, a nighttime trip to the bathroom can turn into an unexpected adventure into space walking.

Pleasant Stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed three nights in the apartment and couldn't have asked for a much better experience. The apartment was clean and had all of the amenities we could have wanted and made us feel safe and at home. Mar was very accommodating when we arrived late due to some airport troubles and even kept checking up on us to see if the airline had found our lost luggage. She also provided us with plenty of local tips for sight-seeing and eating which was much appreciated. The neighbourhood was also clean and the location was great, just a few minutes' walk to a handful of markets, plenty of good restaurants and a metro station. Would gladly stay again!

Comfortable stay

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed for four nights in Mar's studio apartment. Communication with Mar was great, she was prompt and very helpful. She also provided a very detailed outline of things to do , where to eat in Barcelona which was appreciated. The pictures of the apartment are accurate. We somehow got lost and turned the wrong way coming in from the airport bus, but found our way ok. The airport bus is extremely conveniently located. Mar's brother met us at the apartment and was friendly and very helpful not only about Barcelona, but also about our trip afterwards up the Costa Brava. The apartment is very well situated to walk almost everywhere and the metro also is close. The apartment was extremely comfortable, clean ,and quiet and we felt very safe there. The bed was very comfortable. There was a big grocery store close by and several smaller corner stores and lots of places to eat out if you wanted. Our only sadness was that the market still is under construction. We certainly would recommend the apartment.

loved this apartment!!

  • 5 of 5

We were so delighted with our stay in Mar's apartment in Barcelona. Everything was perfect, immaculate, comfortable and local. Mar met us with lots of information (much appreciated) and suggestions on restaurants, transportation and Barcelona in general. All of her suggestions were right on!! This apartment is on a lovely street across from the Sant Antoni market with lots of local shops and restaurants within easy walking distance. Our stay in Barcelona was enhanced by this apartment which was as oasis to return to after busy days!! We highly recommend this apartment to won't be disappointed!
