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. Check out our blog and Facebook page - linked under the "Owner Info" tab - for suggested 'Walking Tours' to some of these site.
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.
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.

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!
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.
"A thoroughly enjoyable experience. Quiet location close to it all, well equipped, and tastefully decorated. Highly recommend for anyone who wants to explore the heart of Barcelona."
Being met on arrival by our hostess and her assistant was welcoming, reassuring and enlightening. By the time they left us, we understood how everything in the apartment worked.....a big positive when it comes to European appliances and electrical system. The welcome basket of goodies was a wonderful treat. The apartment itself lived up to the photos on VRBO. It was clean, spacious, modern and comfortable for two. It's location was five star too. We could walk everywhere and a wonderful map helped us plan our route to the marvelous sights in Barcelona. The many restaurants nearby gave us more choices than time allowed. Eating in was also a pleasure because the kitchen was so well equipped. Our hostess kept in touch regularly and was available for guidance and suggestions. Her "Blue Bible" - a book of information, contained a wealth of information not only about the apartment but also about Barcelona. Thank you for a fabulous stay!
We had a wonderful time, beautiful apartment and in a great location! Wonderful hosts!
Three weeks traveling in Europe and the spot light beams on Bailèn 41, our home away from home. We were warmly welcomed into the spacious and fully- equipped apartment by Chief Concierge Linda.
The five-star apartment had all that we needed to feel comfortable, was tastefully decorated with artwork reflecting the major attractions and gems of Barcelona.
The entry was welcoming and we had ample space to store our luggage after unpacking.
The large kitchen was well-equipped and stocked with every item needed. There was no need to run out and find coffee, fresh bread, fruits or food for the morning, it was all there! The refrigerator offered us a delightful surprise - cava, Spanish olives, cheese and tapas for our afternoon snack. The bathroom was stocked with L'Occitane products and all you need for emergencies.
The apartment had a washer and dryer, an iron and ironing board and all required supplies. Internet access was easy and reliable. The living area was comfortable and the balcony was bright and cheery with a lovely and tranquil view.
When it was time for rest, we found the bed comfortable with a good selection of pillows to meet our sleeping needs. For being located in an urban area, our apartment was very quiet at night. The neighborhood was just what we wanted, convenient to small shops and numerous restaurants and bodegas and walking distance to major attractions; La Rambla, Sagrada Familia, Gotica quarter, El Born district, etc. The metro, bus and train stations were all nearby.
Finally, our friends Linda and husband Kurt, could not have been more helpful. They are experts in navigating through Barcelona and extremely knowledgeable about Spain. This knowledge base was quite helpful when it came time for us to venture out on our own. Bailèn 41 is an exquisite apartment! Thank you Linda and Kurt. We will return!
Bailèn 41 is a beautifully kept apartment in the very center of all you want in Barcelona! Great walking or subway / train connections to everything in and outside the city, yet you are still part of a living neighborhood you can call home with its local cafe bars and restaurants. The apartment is spacious comfortable and decorated with lots of nice fun little extras. My favorite part is the large sunroom openiing away from the Main Street which keeps everything ever so peaceful and quiet!
Linda is your very capable hostess and has wonderful suggestion for sights as well as her endless ability to go above and beyond to help out as needed. Travelers or longer term guests are in good hands here. We have stayed in many apartments worldwide and this is one of the best.
Staying at Bailen 41 is a 5 star experience. The location, the apartment itself, and the manager are all top quality. We stayed 5 nights in September and would return again without hesitation.
This was our first visit to Barcelona & staying at Bailen 41 really made this trip so special. From the start, communicating with Linda was friendly, easy & fast. I don’t think she sleeps:) Linda answered all our questions & helped us with other travel needs - suggesting a Madrid hotel, train tickets to Barcelona & more. She eliminated so much stress in our planning. When we met Linda at the apartment, she provided a warm greeting, clear & thorough orientation to the apartment, plus a terrific welcome basket. We have rented numerous apartments through VRBO both in the U.S. and Europe, & Bailen 41 is definitely one of the best!
The apartment is centrally-located in a lovely residential area, combining old world charm with modern design. The apartment is very quiet (thick walls, double-paned windows), convenient to neighborhood shops & restaurants, & walking to most all tourist sites. In addition to the major sites, we just walked through the neighborhood & admired the gorgeous architecture. The few times we took a taxi (Parc Guell, Monjuic), the fares were very reasonable. The apartment itself is wonderful! It is spacious, bright, comfortable, extremely clean with every detail so well considered. The artwork that Linda selected was wondeful - so tasteful and reflective of Barcelona, complementing the modern decor. The kitchen is well equipped if you like to cook. However, we frequently brought in delicious prepared foods from the Mercat Concepcio nearby & excellent, inexpensive wine from the little shop down the street. Having a clothes washer was very handy for our 12-day stay. The Spanish clothes dryer was a cultural curiosity & it just works differently. But the best way to go is like the locals- hang dry your clothing in the sunny galleria. The windows from the galleria (perfect spot for coffee or a glass of wine) face onto the patios of the neighboring apartments & provide excellent venting of fresh air throughout the entire apartment. But if there’s a need, the AC works well too. Water pressure & the amount of water for the shower are excellent for 2 people. The bed was firm & comfortable with many types of pillows to choose from. Lots of closet and luggage storage space. Again, every detail was well considered.
We won’t hesitate to recommend this wonderful apartment to our friends!
Within walking distance of all the major modernista buildings: Sagrada Familia, Casa Batlló and its neighbors on the Manzana de la Discordia, Palau de la Musica Catalana, La Pedrera (Casa Milà), and lots more! Four blocks from Cuitat Vella, six blocks to Parc de la Cuitadella. Location, location, location!
