BARCELONA'S BEST: Conveniently Located Right Near Everything Wonderful

Barcelona Tourist Rental License #HUTB-009952

Enjoy Barcelona from the heart of L'Eixample Dreta - the city's best neighborhood - in Bailèn 41, a spacious, comfortably furnished, and well-equipped apartment perfect for discriminating travelers.

Immerse yourself in Barcelona, in a neighborhood that remains the epicenter of Modernista architecture from the late 1880s through early 1900s: Gaudí, Domènech, Sagnier. Check out our blog (link below) for leisurely walking tours.

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.

Here are more details:

The 70-square-meter (753 square feet!) apartment is located in an 1896 Modernista building renovated in 2008. The result is an ideal fusion of the original and enchanting architectural features with modern conveniences: elevator, central air and heat, wifi and cable TV, dishwasher, washer and dryer, more!

The bathroom was completely remodeled and amplified in December 2016, providing double sinks with plenty of storage and huge walk-in shower with multi-function shower head.

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, including complimentary l'Occitane toiletries (or equivalents) in the bathroom. With our welcome package of fresh fruit and bread, Spanish ham & cheese, coffee, tea, milk, sugar, and bottle of wine, you can settle in and relax instead of rushing out to the store. The pantry is stocked with all the critical essentials - olive oil, vinegar, basic spices, etc. - and there are ample supplies of paper and cleaning products for both kitchen and bath. Free wifi and cable TV. You even have your own shopping cart to use for trips to the market.

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: In August 2014, Barcelona began 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.

When we travel, we like to stay in apartments because of the flexibility, convenience, and value-added they provide. We're sensitive to those special touches that make the difference between a short-term rental and a real vacation home, especially those involving cleanliness and order. We are focused on ensuring that your stay in Barcelona is worry-free. We personally greet you upon arrival and check you out on departure. And we are readily available for questions. We also offer concierge services for securing tickets, making reservations, etc. Please feel free to contact us with questions or for further information.

Linda Fernandez purchased this apartment in 2014

Why Linda Fernandez chose Barcelona

Bailèn 41 is located in the best neighborhood in Barcelona: it is close to everything you want to see and do yet at a comfortable remove from the noise and hubbub of the main tourist routes. Plus it's located only 2 blocks from our own residence; we really believe this is the best area from which to enjoy Barcelona!

What makes this apartment unique

Bailèn 41 is permitted for tourist rentals by the city of Barcelona and the province of Catalunya (license #HUTB-009952) All tourist apartments in Barcelona are required by law to register and include their license numbers in all advertising.

Lovely, conveniently situated, very comfortable apartment

  • 5 of 5

We loved this apartment--a very comfortable, roomy, wonderfully situated place in a quiet neighborhood of Barcelona. The owner was extraordinarily efficient and responsive in our communications. Bathrooms was well stocked with toiletries and the kitchen (to our surprise) had lots of goodies when we arrived.

The Barcelona subway is just a few minutes walk from the apartment providing a convenient respite from our tourist trips in the city. Highly recommended.

Outstanding Barcelona rental!

  • 5 of 5

We had an excellent visit. The apartment is beautiful, spacious, and clean, and the location is wonderful. It's in a great neighborhood - not touristy yet walking distance to everything, including many fantastic restaurants. We highly recommend it to individuals or couples visiting Barcelona. The contact for the rental, Linda Fernandez, was extremely helpful. From the time we made the initial reservation, to our unexpectedly late arrival (after midnight), to the easy check-out, she ensured that everything went smoothly. We would happily return to 41 Bailen.

This was an excellent choice for us.

  • 5 of 5

Our first time in Barcelona and we were favored with a great apartment, a great host, Linda Fernandez and a great location. Near a subway stop, good restaurants and close to the ever enriching Born and Gottic districts. Can't wait to go back and will definitely stay with Linda again at Baillin 41. Thank you, Linda. It was terrific

Beautiful, comfortable haven in the heart of Barcelona

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we arrived at Balien 41, we felt welcomed. Linda is a true hostess and the apartment is beautiful and perfectly kept. Our welcome basket of bread, cheese, ham, cava and a few other goodies was so lovely and welcome after a long travel day. The vast array of guide and art books was also helpful to orient ourselves to this new city. The photos of the apartment truly don't do it justice. A highlight was the galleria (often called a sunroom in the US), which let in so much light and breeze and offered a lovely view of neighboring gardens; it's where we spent most of our time! The apartment felt quite spacious for two people and had all the amenities we needed, including a fast washer and separate clothes dryer if needed. The apartment is tastefully decorated and furnished in a festive but modern Spanish style. We loved the art and posters about Catalan artists and musicians that were all around the space, it felt very in situ. The location was excellent, we walked virtually everywhere, but felt away from the hustle and bustle on a quiet side street. The elevator was easy to access for luggage and would make this apartment an easy fit for just about any kind of traveler. We'd highly recommend this space and are already beginning to plot our next visit to beautiful Barcelona and this wonderfully welcoming space.

The Best "Away from Home" Nest

  • 5 of 5

Linda, Bailen 41 & Barcelona are all premier! The previous glowing reviews are very much correct... Linda's warm welcome. A beautifully furnished apartment. Absolutely super location. Barcelona is a great walking city. You may put a lot of miles on your shoes but from Bailen 41 you can conveniently walk to everything in the city. Then after a long day come home to the peace & quiet of your nest. Groceries, bakeries, fruit markets & cafes (our close by favorites Vivant & Teruel) are within a few blocks. Finding that just right place to stay is a huge part of a trip. Bailen 41 will not disappoint!

No Unwelcome Rhinos

  • 5 of 5

Bailen 41 is a premium apartment in a choice area of Barcelona, one of the most desirable cities in Europe to visit! The owners, Linda and Kurt, are justifiably proud of their property, and maintain it in as-new condition. Many other reviews have commented on the amenities of the apartment and its surroundings, but there is one feature of the apartment that we found particularly impressive, and that was the security of the unit. The entrance to the apartment is off a small vestibule shared with the next-door neighbour, and the apartment door is a good 2 inches thick with a lock that throws 4 dead bolts into the doorframe. Very reassuring! However, the door between the vestibule and the hallway is truly massive! It is a full 3 inches of solid wood, and the lock throws 5 dead bolts into the doorframe, as well as 1 above and 1 below the door. Nothing is getting through that door unless invited! Indeed, in a flight of fantasy, if a grumpy rhino in the hallway tried to push his way through it he would get a seriously bent horn! So if you want to feel totally secure while living in a strange city I think that you can't do better than residing at Bailen 41! Indeed, we've already booked to come back next year!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much Cary for that 5-star review and for focusing on the previously unremarked but truly remarkable feature of the rhino-proof doors! Such doors are one of the distinctive attributes of these old apartments; they just don't make rhino-proof doors anymore! We look forward to seeing you back next year:)
