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.

About the owner: 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.
