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.

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.

Not enough stars....

  • 5 of 5

All of Barcelona at your doorstep! This apartment delivers style and comfort aplenty with the added benefit of being in a perfect location. All of the most wonderful things to see and do are within walking distance and there is a metro stop on the corner for anything farther afield. This was our second stay (the first for 3 months in 2016) and we were so happy to be back in our Barcelona home. Especially with the newly re-done bathroom which includes a huge shower, great lighting and lots of storage. The brightest star of this property is your concierge, Linda. She knows everything about the city and can assist with obtaining tickets to events or suggest day trips, if you have time. As I said in my last review, come to Barcelona for as long as you can, and when you do, stay here. You won't regret either.

Can't wait to return to this perfect property

  • 5 of 5

Everything about this apartment is perfect, especially the welcome we received on our arrival. The fridge was thoughtfully stocked with a lovely assortment of food and beverages. The apartment itself is spacious and well laid out. All of the amenities are modern. The temperature controls were just updated so we were able to keep very comfortably cool which is especially important to us at night. The location of this property is ideal. We were able to walk to the Gothic Quarter and to the downtown areas and to the Port easily -- nothing seemed to be more than 25 minutes away. There are restaurants and grocery stores everywhere in the neighborhood. Honestly, I cannot think of a single negative thing to nitpick. This is a definite "come back" apartment! Thank you to Linda for such a wonderful stay in Barcelona :)

The best apartment in Barcelona

  • 5 of 5

We are lucky to have travelled a lot in the last few years and have rented a lot of apartments, many of them lovely. But this is the best experience we have had. It is not just that the apartment is beautifully decorated, pristinely clean and in a great location that makes this 5 star - that could also describe other apartments we have rented. What makes it so special is Linda’s desire to make staying in her apartment a wonderful experience for her guests. It begins with the amount of information she provides that ensures your stay in Barcelona runs smoothly - guide books, pamphlets and her own notes. Next, when she leaves, you realise how incredibly generous she has been in provisioning the apartment - there is wine, cheese, bread, fruit, small bottles of water that you can refill and take on your day trips ... And that is not an incomplete list. Suffice to say we did not shop for anything other than ‘top ups’. She provides L’Occitane products for you to use in the bathroom(!) which Scenic provide on their very expensive cruises. And just small things - a clothes drying rack, a night light in the bathroom, LOTS of coat hangers. And best, I always knew that if I needed her help she would be there. So if you are in the position I was in several months ago and you are wondering where you can stay in Barcelona and are reading this review - book Linda’s apartment now!

Lovely Barcelona apartment in a great location.

  • 5 of 5

We recently spent 6 days at Bailen 41 & couldn't have been happier with the apartment. It's spacious, well equipped and in a great location. On top of that, Linda is one of the most efficient and thoughtful owner/mangers you are likely to meet.

Most days we walked to whatever we wanted to see, but the L4 Metro is close by & it takes you thru the 'Old Town' down to the beach. The area around the apartment is well populated with small bars and restaurants or, if you prefer to eat in, a good selection of markets, bakeries, butcher shops etc. The neighborhood is quiet & relaxed, maybe too quiet for some, but we were definitely at ease during our evening walks.

The kitchen is unusually well equipped & Linda keeps a stock of essentials so a dinner at home is straight forward. The furnishings and bed were all comfortable, the air conditioning effective, the WIFI reliable and, my wife's pet peeve, there were good lights for reading at night.

Linda is a very gracious hostess and has tweaked the amenities of the apartment so that the little things just all seem to be there. She helped us with tickets, suggested things to do & even dropped off a piece of cake on my birthday.

All in all, Bailen 41 worked out really well for us & we'd be perfectly happy to return.

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.
