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 Dreta de l'Eixample

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.

The heart of Barcelona

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have just had four days in Derek's great apartment which is in the heart of Barcelona. Just up from Pl. Catalunya, with many access points to the excellent metro, old town, restaurants and all the great sites, this is located in a superb position. It's easy to reach on the airport bus and the friendly Hercles was there to meet us. The apartment is not big but had everything we needed including a super comfortable bed. Towels are huge and very nice too. There were lots of guidebooks for us to consult, and the kitchen included coffee maker and coffee. Thanks for a great stay Derek and Hercles.

Just spectacular - the apartment is gorgeous, the location couldn't be better, and Derek and Hercles were easy to deal with and always reachable. I couldn't have asked for better, and will certainly stay here again in future.

Lovely apartment in Barcelona

  • 5 of 5

A lovely apartment in the most convenient of locations in Barcelona! My spouse and I were able to use it as an enjoyable base to explore everything and every site that the spectacular city of Barcelona has to offer. Even the views from the apartment with its large windows were beautiful too, both in the morning and in the evening. A nice breeze came through at night.
