More reasons to choose Bailèn 41:

Immerse yourself in Barcelona, in a neighborhood that remains the epicenter of Modernista architecture from the late 1880s through early 1900s: Gaudí, Domènech, Sagnier.

Nest in a building with all the flourish and fancy of Catalan art in tile, iron, wood, stone, and glass work. Bailèn 41 enjoys designation as architecturally significant.

Extend your art and architecture experience inside Bailèn 41 with furnishings selected to reflect the heritage of Barcelona and Catalan design and craftsmanship, from your very first step into the entrance on modernista-style floor tiles. Custom-made bed tables feature 'rescued' floor tiles, the marble-top café table affords a romantic view of interior gardens, and artwork on the walls provides a sample of what is awaiting you at Barcelona museums.

This is the perfect place to start and end those busy days of exploring Barcelona. With its interior location in the building, the apartment is shielded from street noises yet enjoys expansive views from the glassed-in galeria.

Sleep soundly and wake to bird songs from the manzana. Step out of the building and a short walk in any direction brings you to treasured destinations: Palau de la Música Catalana, Mercat de la Concepció, l'Arc de Triomf, Parc de la Ciutadella, Plaça Catalunya, Las Ramblas. Our blog contains suggested 'Walking Tours' to many of these sites. The blog is linked on our Facebook page: "Barcelona Apartment for Rent"

On your return, enjoy the high-speed fiber optic internet access to share photos of your adventures with distant friends, make a gourmet dinner in the fully equipped kitchen, or sip a glass of wine in the galeria before heading back out to one of the many cafes and restaurants that abound in the neighborhood.

Bailèn 41 offers those special touches that make the difference between a short-term rental and a real vacation home.

In the bedroom, sleep on 100% cotton sheets and your choice of feather or foam pillows . . . or both! The large commodious wardrobe allows you to arrange your belongings for easy access; no need to live out of your suitcase! Just store it away in the separate luggage storage room, out of sight, out of mind, and out of your traffic pattern.

As our valued guest, you receive personalized attention from the owner-operators. We answer all your pre-stay questions promptly and thoroughly: everything from the best way to obtain euros to what upcoming special events might be of interest. We personally greet you on arrival at the apartment (not some central office miles away) and orient you to your vacation home away from home. We also personally check you out when you depart. And, of course, we are available during your stay for questions or assistance, including arranging for taxi pick-up.

Please note that, while ample, Bailèn 41 purposefully limits the number of guests to two per stay. Exceptions are made only for nonwalking infants.

Bailèn 41 is licensed for tourist rentals by the city of Barcelona and the province of Catalunya (license #HUTB-009952) and managed directly by the owners. IMPORTANT NOTE: Barcelona is cracking down on 'illegal' tourist apartments, i.e., those not registered with the city. Some visitors are arriving to find their vacation rental shut down by the police. Make sure your Barcelona rental is 'legal'; check for that HUTB number.

About Linda Fernandez

Linda and Kurt, the owner-operators of Bailèn 41, moved permanently to Barcelona in 2013 after trying out various places in Latin America, including Buenos Aires, Argentina, and San Miguel de Allende, Mexico, where we also owned and managed short-term rentals.

wonderful and well located barcelona apartment

  • 5 of 5

we just spent an outstanding week in barcelona. we researched ahead of time and were not sorry we did so as the bailen 41 apartment was just excellent. it was impeccably maintained, everything worked perfectly and the apartment was very comfortable. the window wall opening to the inner courtyard kept the apartment bright and provided excellent breeze. linda, the apartment manager, was rapidly responsive and extremely helpful with our pre-arrival questions. she met us personally on arrival, reviewed how everything worked, and best of all left us with initial food and beverage supply which after a long trip we were happy to have available.

the apartment location was perfect for our needs. the metro was just next door (and extremely useful) during our trip. most of the interesting areas are walkable from the apartment and there are great places nearby for all meals. while the location is central, the apartment is very quiet.

in addition, the guest information provided and the bailen 41 website and blog provided excellent additional useful information. in summary, we would do it again tomorrow and would heartily recommend both bailen 41 and barcelona.

Comfortable apartment in great location!

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is well-situated in the city; you can walk to almost anywhere, and the Metro is right around the corner for those places that are a little farther afield. The apartment is well-stocked, with a kitchen that has everything you could possibly need. The bed is very comfortable, and the closet arrangement for clothing is nicer and larger than many typical European apartments. The bathroom was recently renovated and it is very modern. Linda left us lots of tourist books and materials to help us organize our stay. She and her assistant were immediately responsive when we had questions, or needed help with something. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here; we couldn't have asked for more.

Best Place To Stay In Barcelona!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from an amazing week in this incredible city. It started with our wonderful host Linda. Her apartment is located in the best area and is just lovely and comfortable. It was stocked with such nice treats, so even though we were a bit tired from our long travel from the States...we felt immediately at home. Linda gave us great tips for places we did not know about in our research, and are so glad we saw them. Will definitely come back to this beautiful city and this amazing apartment! Chris O.

Amazing apartment, great location, gracious host

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Bailèn 41! Linda has created a beautiful space, with everything you need, and close to the centre of all the action! The week we stayed was extremely hot and we were grateful to have such a great place to return to, both in the evening and throughout the day. I was with my daughter and it was perfect. I would recommend this apartment to a couple or single for a safe, comfortable place to call home.

EXCELLENT! The perfect vacation rental, modern amenities, centrally located to all Barcelona sites.

  • 5 of 5

Everything about our visit was wonderful! We could easily walk the city and see as much as possible as well as attend all our conference activities, shop at the many convenient markets, and visit the concert venues, museums and restaurants.

Linda's apartment is the perfect home away from home. Modern, clean, bright, air conditioned, comfortable bed and well-appointed bath room and full kitchen. We lacked for nothing! The convenience allowed us the chance to have breakfast, make lunch, and go out for dinner. It was perfect!

Thanks so much Linda for your generous hospitality, and for such a beautiful spot from which to explore Barcelona. We enjoyed it immensely!

Spectacular apartment in very convenient location

  • 5 of 5

Things to love about this apartment:

1. Linda, your host. She's exceedingly considerate, friendly and helpful, and has been renting apartments for a long time. Trust her.

2. The building - very pretty entrance, stairs, etc. You really feel like you're living like a local.

3. The apartment itself is very well set up, with everything you need to get up and running. Laundry drying rack? Check! Olive oil for a bit of frying? Check!

4. The newly renovated bathroom is great! Spacious and (again) well appointed.

5. The location is fantastic. Close enough to the Plaza Catalunya that you can walk there, but far enough that you don't feel like you're constantly overrun with tourists. Metro at Plaza Tetuan is a short block away and the bus stops are even closer, but we ended up walking to most places. The Picasso museum, Barceloneta, Sagrada Familia, the "block of discord", the Palace of Catalan Music.... nothing was more than 15 minutes away.

6. Linda gave us great recommendations and useful tips for a safe, fun, pleasant stay.

Every one of the 5 stars well earned!
