PASSEIG DE GRACIA - THE MOST EXCLUSIVE AVENUE IN THE HEART OF THE CITY.

THE ABSOLUTE BEST LOCATION POSSIBLE IN BARCELONA.

A wonderful, spacious, open plan Studio loft with 24 hour wifi connection if you bring your laptop. The absolute best location possible. You cannot be more centrally located. Passeig de Gracia is the most upmarket avenue of Barcelona with the best shops and Gaudi buildings = Casa Batllo and La pedrera are in the same avenue. Being on the corner of Plaza Catalunya, puts you in the heart of the city with the best public transport connections, the airport shuttle bus and of course, most things of interest within walking distance.

This is a wonderful gem in every way: Excellent large Studio Loft with oodles of character within an extremely elegant turn of the century modernista building, AND, with the best location possible - PASSEIG DE GRACIA/PASEO DE GRACIA.

Just look at a map and you can see immediately that an apartment on PASSEIG DE GRACIA, seconds from the famous LAS RAMBLAS is a real find! This is THE address in Barclona. The Studio Loft is part of a beautiful grand building as one would expect from the location, PASSEIG DE GRACIA - THE ADDRESS IN BARCELONA.

You enter into a wonderful marble hall with elaborate wrought iron work, stained glass and an extremely elegant staircase. You can see immediately that this is a very fine building indeed. There are two glass lifts/elevators up to the fifth floor where the spacious, very high ceilinged, Studio Loft is located in the 'Mansard' - excellent views.

As you enter you immediately notice the space of this very stylish Studio Loft with enormously high wooden cathedral style ceilings - I could easily add another floor but like the feel and character of this home as it is.

The bathroom is also spacious and is all white, marble and clean with bathtub, shower, bidet etc etc.

The kitchen area has all that is needed for a very comfortable stay - naturally all crockery, cutlery etc is provided.

Here you will find an oven, burners, toaster,coffee makers, electric kettle, microwave, fridge, washing machine etc etc. the living area is very comfortable and cosy and naturally fully furnished with armchair, sofas, bookshelves, TV, music centre, cupboard space, dining table and chairs. The sleeping area has a Queen size bed and ample wardrobe space.

Naturally it is fully air conditioned and heated. What more can I say??This is truly an exceptional property in the absolute best position possible in town!! I consider this to be of very good value.

Just seconds from Plaza Catalunya and therefore a two minute walk to the famous Las Ramblas and the Gothic Quarter. PASSEIG DE GRACIA of course has the famous Gaudi buildings, Casa Batllo and La Pedrera PLUS all the best shops in town!! All within literally minutes of the Studio. The Location could not be bettered.

To cover some basics - Yes, all linen, towels, cutlery, crockery etc are provided. .PLEASE BRING YOUR OWN FACE CLOTHS AS EUROPEANS GENERALLY NEVER USE THEM. PLEASE NEVER USE HAND AND SHOWER TOWELS TO REMOVE MAKE UP.

The supermarket is located just a minute away and is open till 1000pm nightly (except Sundays). I shall be pleased to answer any questions you may have regarding your stay in this lovely mediterranean city and happy to welcome you to this super Studio Loft.

AVAILABLE ONLY FOR 1 OR 2 RESPONSIBLE ADULTS OR A RESPONSIBLE FAMILY. This is not a party place!

PLEASE DO RESPECT THE PROPERTY AND DO NOT USE THE TOWELS FOR SHOE AND MAKE UP CLEANING.

About The Owner

Hello, I am Derek, a freelance European Tour Director and a Londoner.

The Owner purchased this apartment in 1998

Why The Owner chose Barcelona

This is an easy question! I chose to live on Passeig de Gracia as it is 'THE' address in Barcelona. Passeig de Gracia is the most elegant and most central avenue of the city. Having lived for two years on Passeig de Gracia, loving every minute of the sheer ease of living within walking distance of everything and being in the heart of such a wonderful city, I decided to buy another apartment, this lovely studio loft in 1998. My original home on Passeig de Gracia is listing 11323 which is also on VRBO. This studio had everything I wanted: The right location, a beautiful period building, unusual ceiling features and a magnificent view of the city.

What makes this apartment unique

I often stay at this flat when in Barcelona. This is in the middle of everything - a perfect location. Diagonally opposite is Barcelona's main department store with an extremely well stocked supermarket with wet fish counter, butcher , greengrocer and fruiterer - all the best products opposite my studio loft. Arrival and departure is also fantastically easy, I feel spoilt! The Airbus to the airport departs and arrives just outside El Corte Ingles, the above mentioned department store - in other words, opposite the flat.

The new Apple store is just next door.

When staying here, I very rarely use transport of any kind as I can walk everywhere. In the summer months, the beach is just a 10 minute(if that) metro ride away.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Derek,



We enjoyed our stay in Barcelona, especially in your loft. It had everything we needed. We would recommend this rental to anyone thinking of renting in Barcelona. The location couldn't have been better.

Martin was extremely helpful.

Bright and roomy in the real heart of Barcelona

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed at this studio apt for 3 nights and it was fantastic. Even though it's a studio, the ceilings are high and it makes the room feel so roomy and open. Communications with the owner were all excellent, and he welcomed us with some flowers and a bottle of wine, which was really a nice touch. The bed was large and so comfortable. The apartment has a small but totally functional kitchenette, including washer and a nice bathroom.

The location is in the central part of Barcelona, Plaza Catalunya, and you can't ask for a better place to go walking and experience Barcelona. You have Las Ramblas, The Boqueria and several Gaudi buildings within several blocks, just to name a few.

We would highly recommend this to friends and family.

Excellent place to stay in Barcelona. Highly recommend.

  • 5 of 5

It was our first time in Barcelona and I cannot imagine a better place to stay. The location is absolutely central to everything, the building is elegant (it was being repainted while we were there so will look even better when that is completed), and the king bed was very comfortable. Everything we'd hoped for and more.

Great spot!!

  • 5 of 5

Can't beat the location, close to all public transportation including the metro and aerobus so very convenient to get to and from the airport. Building is nice, all amenities included. Washing machine was a huge plus, especially when trying to pack light. Very easy check in and check out. Was told the room would be ready by noon but it was ready early so we checked in around 11am. Bed was comfy, apartment was clean and no problems. Everything was great! Would definitely stay again if I'm ever back in Barcelona! Thank you Derek for letting us stay at your great place!

Charming Apartment Perfectly Located

  • 5 of 5

You won’t find a better location. The apartment is steps away from the Plaça de Catalunya Aerobus airport shuttle stop, and the metro is close and easy to use. A large supermarket in the basement of El Corte Inglés department store is just across the street. (Don’t miss going to the top of El Corte Inglés for fabulous views and a nice food court.) Catch a Gothic Quarter tour from Free Walking Tours Barcelona that starts right from Plaça de Catalunya.

The apartment is spacious for a studio with one of the most comfortable beds we’ve ever slept on. Derek provided good communication throughout the rental process and check in was easy. We would most definitely stay here again if we return to Barcelona.

Great central spot in Barcelona!

  • 5 of 5

This place was wonderful and equipped with all the essentials and then some. We were greeted by nice gentleman who showed us the basics of how things worked. (Although limited English, we got the gist.) it was very nice and super comfortable. They even left us a wonderful bottle of Spanish wine as a welcome. We would definitely return!
