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. Bailèn 41also guarantees check-in on arrival at the apartment instead of waiting for some arbitrary check-in time. Our guests - principally from Canada, USA, and Australia - really enjoy this amenity!
Linda Fernandez purchased this Apartment in 2014
Why Linda Fernandez chose Dreta de l'Eixample
Bailèn 41 is located in the best neighborhood in Barcelona: 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 know this is the best area from which to enjoy Barcelona!

Bliss in Barcelona
Our stay in Barcelona was delightful! The city itself is filled with energy, sites and excellent dining experiences. All of this was enhanced by Linda's glorious apartment that was perfectly located for what we wanted to do and see. When we arrived, we were travel weary and were planning to go out for a late lunch. On the counter was a loaf of bread, cheese and ham in the refrigerator as well as other lovely snacks and drinks to help revive us from travel fatigue. Linda's helpful suggestions of places to see, restaurants and eateries was greatly appreciated. She even met us at an early morning hour, arranged a taxi for us to the airport and send us off in her warm, friendly way. It made us feel as though she was a friend we've known forever.
We rented bicycles to access the Barceloneta area which was a delightful ride. The metro is a short walk away, taxis and buses are plentiful.
We could not have been happier with our stay. The apartment is beautiful decorated and appointed with everything one would want or need for a memorable stay. It is also very quiet and allowed for complete relaxation after long hours of touring. Thank you, Linda, for your generous hospitality!! Ruth and Steve
Bailèn 41 is perfect
The location of this well appointed flat is perfect for walking to all the sites, as well as very convenient to markets and cafes. Linda has outfitted the unit with high quality furnishings and linens. She met us at the unit and did a great job of orienting us for our stay, as well as providing starter food, coffee, etc. Highly recommend Bailèn 41!
Thank you for that just perfect review and for being perfect guests! Hope to see you again in Barcelona!
Barcelona Beauty: Boutique Apartment with Style, Space, Location, Amenities
As professional travel writers, we (theHoworths) tour the world and when we are not being hosted by luxury hotels and resorts, we use furnished apartments as our base. Writing about lifestyle for the UHNI, we have become expert at seeking out good service and value for money. So it was more than just good luck that led us to this wonderful apartment in central Barcelona. When it comes to apartments that are run as a business, the temptation for most owners is to fill it with just enough cheap equipment from a well know Swedish store so as to make it function. Bailen 41 proves to be the exception where the owner has decided to take service and equipment to a new level of excellence. Stay here for a day or a month and there is very little extra you could ask for. The owner has anticipated every need and catered for it. The level of service she provides is exemplary and should become the standard of all owners who rent out their apartments. From a fridge full of essential foodstuffs to a cupboard full of staple dry goods, you feel right at home the moment you first step in the door. The owner greets you at the front door taking time and effort to welcome you and explain the workings of the accommodation. Add to that she is hugley knowledgeable when it comes to the local area and if asked, ventures forth a complete itinerary so that you can enjoy your stay in the city. Well situated for most activities when it comes to city breaks, the location was, for us, a little further from where we needed to be than we would have liked. That said, let us assure you that the instant we get another commission from a magazine editor to write about Barcelona we will be booking this apartment again. It is well worth the extra walk to the show we needed to cover and the fact that the owner goes that extra mile to make sure everything is perfect is well worth the extra shoe leather.
Thank you so much for those glowing comments! At Bailèn 41, we do focus on providing our clients with the very best. And we have the very best guests, too! We look forward to seeing you here again in Barcelona.
Modern amenities, close to everything, look no further
The apartment and gracious host lived up to their reputation. I don’t think I can add much more than what is in the other reviews. We had a wonderful time in Barcelona and the apartment was more than accommodating for our needs. The staples provided were great to get us through a day or two after long travels. We had to shift our travel dates a bit and Linda was very accommodating of this. Look no further, this is where you want to stay!
Linda, thank you for helping make our first trip to Barcelona a wonderful experience!
Our goal is ensuring that every one of our guests has a wonderful experience in Barcelona, regardless of whether it's the first or a repeat visit. So glad you enjoyed your stay and hope to see you back again for perhaps an even longer visit! Thank you for being wonderful guests!
Excellent value, location & design.
Linda's apartment is fabulous! It's very spacious and has all you could possibly need to settle into life in Barcelona. It's honestly the most thoroughly stocked place I've stayed...Linda has thought of everything! The house is furnished with quality items from feather pillows
to shampoo & shower gel. Linda has a keen eye for design & color and the space reflects her good taste and a fun Spanish warmth.
The neighborhood is fantastic & away from the crowds but has excellent restaurants close by & grocery stores as well. It's also nice and quiet at night so it's easy to get a great sleep and recharge for your next adventure. If it''s available don't hesitate to book Bailen 41. We're already planning our next visit. Thank you Linda! You were absolutely lovely & we're so thankful we found you.
Much love & appreciation, Marisa & Rob
We love our guests! Thank you for that fabulous review and for choosing Bailèn 41 for your plunge into Barcelona. We do very much hope to see you again as returning guests and friends:)
Bailen 41 - THE place to stay!
This was our second stay at Bailen 41 and once again, it was wonderful! We love the spacious and clean apartment, with its large windows that open to courtyards filled with flowering plants, songbirds, gulls, and the open sky. It's especially nice on sunny days when the warmth of the sun is felt inside.
We also love the location because we feel part of the neighborhood as soon as we step out onto the street. We enjoyed walking to the Arc de Triomf, Placa de Tetuan, the Mercat between Carrer de Valencia and Carrer D'Arago, and St. Joan on Saint Jordi's Day. The sidewalks were filled with happy children and their parents, browsing the many children's books and taking advantage of a beautiful sunny day.
Thank you, Linda, for all that you do to make this a perfect place to stay and to enjoy being part of the city scape.
Thank you for those perfect, wonderful words and for staying again at Bailèn 41. We do hope you will come yet again; you are perfect guests!
