Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday apartment in Barceloneta - Maquinista
3 bedrooms. Capacity: 4 persons
This cozy apartment is full of bright, nautural light, and has five exterior balconies all with views to the street! Each of the three bedrooms has its own private balcony, as well as balconies from the living room and kitchen. Maquinista will leave you feeling warm and just like home!
This apartment was completely renovated in October 2012 with a modern and stylish decoration. Unlike many apartments, Maquinista doesn't contain cheap, uncomfortable furniture. Sit down for a nice meal at the crafted wooden kitchen table or relax comfortably after a long day on the beach in the leather sofa in front of an HD flat-screen television.
The apartment is located in the center of the traditional district of La Barceloneta, is very close to the beach (just a 5 minutes walk) and is also near the marina, Maremagnum shopping center, and classic Barcelona street market.
This apartment is also just a 10 minute walk from the antique Gothic district, allowing you to enjoy both the warm beach and the ecentric center of Barcelona.
La Barceloneta, an old fisherman town, today is known by its tight narrow streets, local culture and traditional bars and the variety of restaurants specializing in seafood.You will be able to enjoy a walk or ride in a bicycle, surrounded by bars and restaurants. However, don't worry, due to many local residents the neighborhood is quite quiet at night and with double enforced glass windows, noise is never a problem!
Machinista is also well connected with the public transportation (metro station “Barceloneta” and various bus stops).
The distribution of rooms is as follows:
One double room with a double bed and
two single rooms with one single bed each. Linens and towels are also included.
There is a living room/dining room with sofa, and HD flat screen TV (LED). The doors are mixed with painted glass and wood frame.

The apartment is 55 square meters in total.
The cleaning fee is 45€

Laura Pajares Claudet purchased this apartment in 2006
Why Laura Pajares Claudet chose Barceloneta
I bought this apartment because of it's great location in an area that is (with good reason) in great demand by visitors to Barcelona, and is near the beach yet also closely connected to the city center.
What makes this apartment unique
The apartment benefits from its great location and connection to both the beach and city center. Maquinista is also unique in the quality of it's furniture. Many apartments for tourists nowadays contain cheap, plastic furniture and an uncomfortable couch. I am proud to have invested more to have true quality furniture and comfort that I would be glad to have in my own home!
