A wonderful apartment in a very central and very safe location! Only 15 minutes on foot to Plaza Catalunya and Las Ramblas and in the middle of the Eixample neighbourhood. This one-bedroom apartment is situated on the top floor of a building dating back to the turn of the 20th century -Modernista style - and has got an elevator.
It has been furnished with both very modern furniture (Italian design) and antiques. It has wooden parquet-flooring and the walls are covered with art.
The penthouse has got a recently refurbished, very modern and comfortable bathroom with walk-in shower and a washing machine, a small kitchen with all amenities (except a microwave), a large living room on two levels with a sofa, that turns into a small bed, a bedroom with a good quality, comfortable queen-size bed and a built-in wardrobe, and, last but not least, a lovely private terrace full of Mediterranean plants.
The terrace is a perfect sunny breakfast spot or could be used for a slow dinner complete with evening breeze. The apartment has a high-speed wifi connection.
This 55-square-meter penthouse is very quiet although it is very centrally located (15 minutes stroll to Plaza Catalunya and Las Ramblas, 10 minutes walk to Paseo de Gracia and Gaudi's houses, one minute to the covered Ninot food market, 10 minutes walk to the neighbourhood of Gracia..). It situated away from the street, so it is very quiet, yet due to its position on the fifth floor it has lots of light coming into it as well, which is a rarity in Barcelona.
Immediately outside the apartment are many little family-owned shops like a bakery, delicatessen, butcher, greengrocer, fishmonger, nail studio, etc. Nearby is a big food market and there are also many supermarkets in the vicinity.
The neighbourhood has got a wonderful village feeling to it; you will be living where the Catalans live. Close by are also some great restaurants where you will find mostly local people and where prices are still reasonable.
This penthouse is used by the owner when in the city and therefore very homely. There are bookshelves full of books, mostly in English, but also in Dutch, Italian, and Spanish. There are Persian carpets, contemporary art and other accessories that you will not find in a standard rental apartment. It has got air conditioning, heating, TV, video, DVD, stereo, and CD player with lots of CDs.
Great value for money. Only available to 1-2 responsible adults. Not apt for party people or small children.
The minimum stay is 31 nights.

I bought this unique apartment in 2001 for my own use and have been renting it out on an on-off basis since 2007. I have been working in tourism for the past 20 years and speak English, French, German, Spanish, Italian, Dutch and little Russian and Portuguese. I have quite a nomadic lifestyle, but can count on my wonderful property managers for any emergencies that may arise.

This penthouse is very centrally located, yet away from the tourist playgrounds. It has a lovely private terrace and is very calm and quiet.
When I am staying in the apartment I enjoy on getting up to make a strong coffee and having it on the terrace in my pyamas.. relaxing, looking at the plants, their flowers.. Later I prepare breakfast and have it on the terrace as well, going over my e-mail using the fast WIFI connection. If I would leave the building I will have all necessary shops on my left and right, various bakeries, the greengrocer, a cafe, the flower shop, the fish monger, the butcher, the market where they have a wonderful selection of olives, cured hams, Spanish cheeses and other interesting stuff.. In the evening I might cook a meal for friends and either have it on the terrace or inside, using the dining table where they'll admire all the contemporary art hanging on the walls. Or I might meet friends in one of the many typical non-touristy restaurants in this great neighbourhood.
Loved staying here. Reminded me of living on the lower east side of Manhattan many years ago, a rooftop apartment on 2nd Avenue. The proximity to see the wonders of Barcelona made me happy.. happy. Regards
We really enjoyed the apartment and its location suited us to a tee. It was always nice to come home to a welcoming flat with a lovely terrace. Great location for shops, markets and walking distance to all the sites. We will most certainly be back.
We loved this apartment! You won't find a better location to see Barcelona! . Minutes from the supermarket, subway and Passeig de Gracia make it a really nice way to see such a beautiful city. The apartment is quiet and convenient to access and enjoy by itself. Everything one needs to be comfortable away from home is provided. Lana, the manager, is very helpful and efficient and that made our stay that much better. For the money, you won't find a better place to stay in Barcelona!
After a day of touring busy Barcelona, what a relief to relax in this immaculate, quiet apartment with a lovely terrace. The original art on the walls adds to the personal feel of the place. The apartment is very well appointed and, though the kitchen is small, you'll find everything you need in terms of kitchenware. This is a pleasant, non-tourist neighborhood with plenty of good restaurants and shops. Placa de Catalunia and Barri Gotic are a safe 20-minute walk and the Metro is just a few block away.
We love this appartment. Quiet at night, with a great terrace perfect place to relax after a busy day in Barcelona. We will come back!
I stayed here for a week and loved every minute of it. The location was ideal, and the apartment felt like I could have lived there. The host and her associates, Martin and Rod did everything possible to make me feel welcome. There were guide books, a bulletin board covered with previous visitor's recommendations for dining, shopping, and sightseeing, and a large collection of books in multiple languages. The apartment was charming, and definitely made my visit to Barcelona a terrific experience. Do not hesitate! This place is a jewel!
Great location. Clean and comfortable. Lovely terrace. Extraordinary value. We could walk to anything we wanted to see. Or any place to eat. There's a cork board in the kitchen with a useful map and recommended restaurant business cards. We definitely recommend this place.
