About the property

3 Bedrooms 3 Bathrooms Sleeps Up To 8 People

The apartment is located at the core of Barcelona. Just crossing the Trafalgar Street you will be at the Born Quarter (the nicest and trendiest area of the Old Town). The most important sightseeing’s of Barcelona are steps away.

This nice apartment its just one minute on foot to the famous Palau de la Musica Catalana (Art Nouveau Catalan music Palace) and the central Plaza Catalunya. Just 2 minutes on foot to the Cathedral and the Santa Caterina Organic market where you can get fresh groceries or to the Paseo de Gracia where the Gaudi houses are located (Casa Batllo and Pedrera). Five minutes on foot to Santa Maria del Mar, Picasso Museum or Las Ramblas (where you can find the Boqueria Market the Liceo opera house and Palau Guell). Just 7 minutes to the Old Harbor of Barcelona.

The apartment has 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms with a nice living room. However it can be configured as a 2 bedroom 3 bathroom (in that configuration each bedroom will have its own private lounge area with sofa and TV).

A very sensitive architect has refurbished this luxury apartment to the highest quality. Its solid wood floors, the amazing design bathrooms, the restored antique XIX century furniture, exposed beams and brick walls. We have refurbished this apartment as the most luxury senior suite of a five star Hotel. Nothing has been left apart. We kept the nice architectonical features such as high ceilings, exposed wood beams and stonewalls this makes this apartment very special. It has a full kitchen with a central island and a table that seats 6 to 8 people. We can organize a chef to cook your meals on request. If you are cooking at the flat you will find all the utensils and appliances to cook as a chef.

Each of the 3 three bedroom has its own design bathroom with wide and big showers and nice washing hands basin cabinets. There are details such as the magnetic glass that we install at one of the showers (by pressing a button you can change the glass from transparent to opaque). We took care of the quality and comfort at this apartment. All beds have memory foam mattresses and high quality bed linens (made of Percale cotton). We offer Chortex premium quality Towels from England.

Two bedrooms have queen size beds and the other bedroom has a very high quality memory foam sofa bed (queen size). There is additional sleeping space at the memory foam sofa bed at the living room.

The flat has an outdoor balcony with a table and chairs to seat outside.

The flat sits on the third floor of an Art Nouveau building with an elevator serving the apartment.

This apartment will make the difference on your stay in Barcelona. I transformed one sentence I once red at The Raffles Hotel in Singapore: “While at Vintage apartment, why not visit Barcelona?”


* Complementary bottle of Spanish wine and fruit

* Very powerful Air conditioning and heating

* High quality Chortex Peremium towels and Percale cotton linens provided (Zara Home and Calvin Kelin)

* Design Furniture in each room

* Soundproof double glass windows. Maximum noise isolation

* TV, DVD and Wi-Fi

* Fully equipped kitchen and laundry

We hope you can be comfortable in our flat.

great place great location

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. From the moment we arrived until the day we left all was wonderful. There were 3 adults and 2 children and we had plenty of room. Beds comfortable, showers great and location the best. The apartment is located within easy walking distance to all sights. Miguel and Eddie were great. I highly suggest the Foodie tour with Regina, she is delightful and extremely knowledgeable on all aspects of food and history of the city. Hooks are needed in the bathrooms for towels and a good coffee maker but other then that excellent stay!

Great location

  • 4 of 5

This flat is in a great location in the heart of Barcelona. We were a group of 4 (2 couples) and It's a great layout for 2 couples as the layout has 2 master suites. It would be tight for any more than 4 people. The Wifi was good, the building was secure. Eddie met us on arrival and was very personal and helpful, walking us through the layout and features and leaving us with his phone number for any problems, which we did not have. My biggest complaint is with the lack of any towel racks in the second bathroom off the blue room, which my husband and I used. There are no towel racks for drying towels after a shower. Our 2 towels never dried properly without a towel rack, becoming mildewed by midweek. It was annoying and could easily be solved with towel racks! I hope that Manuel will add 2 towel racks.

Owner's Response: Thanks a lot for your nice comment. We work hard to improve with the comments of our guest. We have bought 2 towel racks at the flat so there is no issue drying the towels. Regarding the size of the flat we offer a 3 bedroom apartment. The flat is perfect for 6 people though it can be occupied up to 8 adults. The 3 bedrooms are big and the living and dinning area seats 6 people. The flat location can't be more central. Less than 5 min on foot to the major sightseeing's of Barcelona. Plus its a fully licensed apartment. We really look forward to seeing you again in Barcelona. Thanks again for choosing us

We arrived in Barcelona early in the morning after at 10 day Med Cruise. We were able to meet Eddie at the apartment who was waiting for us when we arrive. As we had a lot of luggage (6 people for a 17 day vacation), we had to send our luggage up a little at a time. The elevator was very small, but we are pretty used to European lifts. It was actually pretty funny and we always love these types of adventures. The apartment is just a short walk from the Gothic quarter, which is our preferred placed to stay in Barcelona. The Apartment is very tastefully decorated and we had everything we needed. We purchased food at a nearby convenience store. We didn't cook, but we could have as pots, pans and dishware was available. We made coffee with the coffee provided and it was delicious. We have stayed in an apartment owned by Miguel and his son in the past, actually just a few blocks away and we will probably stay again in an apartment owned by this family because of the ease of communication and hospitality and professionalism. I am hoping to return to Barcelona some day as it really is one of my favorite European Cities.

Great apartment

  • 5 of 5

We returned from a stay in your apartment recently. It was more than we expected. I don't think we could have had a more convenient location for sightseeing and shopping. Everything was much closer than we thought. The apartment was very tastefully appointed and spotless. Miquel was there to meet us upon our arrival and helped explain the workings of everything in the apartment. I was especially happy to see a washing machine. We were coming from a three day stay in New York and a 12 night East Med cruise. I would sit and study the apartment walls and woodwork and just try to imagine some of the history behind it. I have told by friends that Barcelona is a beautiful city, now I can agree with them. If I'm fortunate to return to Barcelona, I will plan my trip around the availability of this apartment so I can stay there again. Miguel, I want to thank you again for the informative walking tour that you provided for us. You definately know your history of the city. Your english is excellent, by the way.

The best in Barcelona

  • 5 of 5

The position, the appointments, the entertainment, personal touches, personal service and absolute professional presentation!! Tour buses, taxi, metro, fresh feast market (Mercat de Santa Caterina), amazing restaurants.....all within a 2 minute walk from the doorstep of this beautiful apartment. Many of the "absolute must see" sites of Barcelona are within walking distance. The position of this apartment couldn't be more perfect. The interior is completely renovated to the highest standard with incredible historic elements. After a full day of blister paced touring, the private balcony was heaven! Meeting Miguel was a pleasure (the owner Miguel's father), he was charming and informative. He took much time in making sure we were acquainted with the functions of the apartment and gave a great history lesson upon arrival (he was waiting as we crossed the street to the apartment and greeted us with no delay). We took the "old town + art nouveau" tour with Miguel. We highly recommend this tour as Miguel is completely versed in the history of Barcelona and will take you back to Roman times and then fast forward you through history to present day art and architecture. Miguel and his family made us fall in love with the culture, the people and the history of this community. The apartment is well appointed and well furnished. It was lovely to walk into such elegance and style after a long journey and feel all the comforts of home . The rooms were spacious. So lovely, so comfortable and Miguel at our fingertips via text or phone, should we need assistance. Response time for all communications was within seconds, again, very comforting. A professional family operation without a doubt. We have travelled extensively renting apartments in France, Italy, northern and southern Spain and for sure Miguel and his family rank right up in the top for service! Our Barcelona apartment was for sure the highlight of our Spanish adventure. We will return again and without hesitation rent from Miguel and his family. With much thanks and gratitude to Miguel and your lovely wife, until we meet again in your beautiful city. Hasta luego, to our friends, Much love

Close to attractions but some things were not correct for the price

  • 3 of 5

The positive points were closeness to many of the tourist sites, available public transportation and the size of the accommodations. It was also an attractive apartment. The negatives were 1) street noise (including a woman signing outside on the street at 02:00, and a person above us stomping on the floor late at night), 2) there were more bedrooms than the rest of the accommodations supported (e.g. kitchen and sitting room were small and minimally equipped), 3) one shower door did not close nor did it drain properly so 3 baths turned into 2 baths and 4) the sewer was not properly vented so lots of noise erupted in the kitchen drain when flushing one toilet or taking a shower. . A couple minor points were that a very small, cheap coffee maker was provided but a reasonable coffee maker was not available since we did not ask of it in advance (we were expected to pay for a decent coffee maker). The same for a taxi to meet us at the airport - we had to ask for that well in advance. I asked 24 hrs prior to our arrival if the owner could arrange for a taxi to meet us and was told no since we did not do so long before. I expected a bit more in terms of furnishings and attitude for the price. We would not go back at the price we paid.

Owner's Response: First thanks for your review. The flat is located at the center of Barcelona less than 5 min on foot to the major sightseeing’s of Barcelona. We refurbished the flat 2 years ago and we used the highest quality materials. We installed top quality soundproof windows. We are located at a real 5th floor. However Barcelona is a very vibrant city and sometimes-exterior noise can happen. We cannot do anything if a woman decides to sing at outside however its not the normal thing since the quarter is very quiet. Regarding the size of the kitchen, as its possible to see on the pictures, is huge. It’s the most important area of the apartment. We often do wine tastings with our guest or they hire our chef at home. We provide with 6 chairs and a table that seats 6 people. The kitchen has a center island and its equipped with the highest quality appliances. As for the coffee machine let me be accurate. We offer complimentary coffee and a regular coffee machine that works perfectly. What we offer as an extra option is a Nespresso machine with Nespresso coffee pellets. We also offer complementary fruit basket and a very nice bottle of Spanish wine. Regarding the showers we didn’t get any notice about the shower door. I just informed our maintenance team to check it and fix it ASAP. We truly apologize for that. Regarding the sewer there is no problem with it. For the master bedroom WC and shower we use a pump system. The machine of the pump system is located at the kitchen (perfectly covered by a very nice furniture). The noise that you heard was due to the pump not due to the sewer. As for the taxi I got the email at 1am (a few hours before your arrival) at that time I could not do anything to book the ca. We always get in contact a few weeks in advance to check for transportation and extra things needed such as pre stoking, tours and day trips. We didn’t receive any email or answer to our email. You should understand that at that time in the middle of the night the day I cant organize everything. We work with a serious taxi company and I call directly the owner and organize the pick-ups for our guest. We offer a top quality apartment. We dont have short cuts. All furniture, appliances, mattresses, pillows, bed cloths, towels, windows, solid wood floors are of the highest quality. We offer a top accommodation at a very reasonable price in the center of Barcelona just few steps to the major sightseeing’s. We hope to see you next time in Barcelona
