Overview

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday apartment in Sant Marti

2 bedrooms - Sleeps 3 - Elevators 2 - AC/Heat - Terrace View Park

For value, comfort and access to the sights of Barcelona, this is the place, where you can experience the real Barcelona lifestyle.

NOTE. Almost all of these descriptions come from guest comments. My English is not good enough to express all of these wonderful thoughts....

It is a gorgeous apartment in the absolute BEST location of Barcelona, on the tree-lined avenue PASSEIG PUJADES, a pleasant, quiet and SAFE residential neighborhood.

The pleasure of sitting out on the sunny terrace enjoying the breeze, having a leisurely breakfast or an evening wine, will be one of your lovely memories here.You can dash around the city all day and into the wee hours and return here to a cozy environment. It is so nice to come home from a day of sightseeing to this “oasis”.

It is truly an amazing location and is within walking distance of nearly al the sites, but you can escape the crowds of the Old City with just a short walk.For those who prefer to travel by tram or bus, they are located around the corner. In addition, the train and subway station ARC DE TRIOMF is a 5 minutes away.

The APARTMENT is immaculately CLEAN, well-equipped and is exactly as shown in the photos. It is on the third floor in a SECURE building with 2 elevators and a Concierge.

There are 2 fully stocked grocery stores, restaurants, terrace-cafes, and a pharmacy, on your door step.

DOUBLE BEDROOM with two European twin beds (3” wider than US twin and 6’7” long) are almost like a double bed and as long as a king size bed and very comfortable.

SINGLE BEDROOM and a fold-up bed can be extra placed if requested.

LIVING/DININGROOM: TV, Satellite, Books (in English). It has a big MAP of Barcelona on the wall with all the sites shown and how to get to them

KITCHEN: Microwave, Fridge, Coffeemaker, Toaster, washing machine. Iron & board

BATHROOM. with shower, hair dryer, LINEN and TOWELS provided

You´ll see I have a reputation for service and assitance beyond expectation.I WILL MEET YOU ON ARRIVAL. Guests are further reassured that I AM ON HAND all time for any help, that would make your stay even more enjoyable.

Reading the REVIEWS made by previous guests might also help you decide and fin out more from a traveler`s perspective.

GUEST REVIEWS:

PERFECT PREPARATION FOR OUR CRUISE

Dolores' apartment was the perfect accommodation for our family as we took three days in Barcelona prior to our Mediterranean cruise. We found the place to be very clean and comfortable, which allowed us to quickly recover from our "red-eye" flight from the US. Dolores is the perfect host, welcoming and briefing us on all the essentials for local shops and dining, as well as how to navigate the excellent public transit system. She gave us great advice and direction to see the many wonderful features of Barcelona. We were very happy with the location, several public transit options within a block, and the Parc Ciutadella just across the street. Breakfast on the terrace was a delight..

AMAZING APARTMENT and WONDERFUL LOCATION

The apartment was exactly as shown in the photos, well laid out and very clean.

At first I thought having single beds would be too small but they are almost like a double bed and as long as a king size bed and very comfortable.

We enjoyed the coffee and cakes that Dolores left us upon our arrival out on the lovely balcony overlooking the park across the street. There is a fully stocked grocery store around the corner which helped as.

Dolores was very helpful and not only had a ton of brochures but also a map on the wall with all the sites shown and how to get to them, she also suggested a few places to dine which we went to and found them all excellent, no disappointments at all.

The apartment and location was perfect and I'd highly recommend staying there while in Barcelona .Bren (Ontario, Canada)

DOLORES APARTMENT IS A JEWEL IN BARCELONA

Thank you so much for the use of your wonderful apartment and specially for making it so much like a home away from home.

The coffee, milk, and muffins were also so very much appreciated the morning we woke up!We sat on the balcony and played cards every evening before dinner.

We enjoyed watching the green birds that looked a little like parrots and we think we heard the elephant from the zoo once. While walking down Wellington Street one evening,we saw the lion up behind the fence and it roared at us! It was such a sight! Judy and family - Danville, CA - US

LOVELY APARTMENT and TERRIFIC TOURIST INFORMATION

For value, comfort, and access to the sights and sounds of Barcelona, this is the place. Everything you need is here in the apartment. Its central location, opposite a large park, allows for a leisurely walk for relaxation and / or desired services.

But, its strength is its host-Dolores. She is genuinely friendly and committed to seeing that your stay is an enjoyable one. Her numerous suggestions as to what to see and do, and her walking and driving tours, will get you to the "real" Barcelona.BC, Canada

About Dolores Perez

I am Dolores, the owner of the apartment . I was born in Barcelona and I have been living just round the corner from this apartment for 45 years.

I am retired, so I have time to manage the apartment by myself. I take care of my guests personally. I am on hand for any help! I WILL MEET YOU ON ARRIVAL.

Why Dolores Perez chose Sant Marti

I live here because I believe it is one of the best places to stay in Barcelona, close to everything.

The crowds and the noise of the city fade when you are in the apartment, yet you are able to enjoy your breakfast and cocktails on the terrace, gazing at the activities below....joggers, bikers, people enjoying their coffee, it is a fascinating scene.

What makes this apartment unique

I LET MY GUESTS speak:

Barcelona GEM

This was my third stay in Barcelona and each time I have rented this apartment from Dolores. She is gracious and helpful and will give guidance, if desired, about the attractions, neighborhoods and restaurants of Barcelona.

The apartment is very clean and well appointed with a great kitchen for cooking meals with the food that you purchase in the near by Santa Catarina Market or from the almost nearby Boqueria Market.

The balcony overlooks the beautiful Parc de la Ciutadella and you are short stroll from the old city, but removed from the hustle and bustle. In short, a perfect location.

Metro and bus lines are nearby that connect to all parts of the city and region. It is easy to make day trips to Sitges and Tarragona for example. I highly recommend Dolores and her apartment.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We enjoyed Christmas here in Barcelona. So pretty,magical,relaxed, and even had our favourite Christmas movie "Mujercitas". We loved visiting Santa Maria del Mar Church for midnight services, and the "Magic Fountaine" on Christmas night.

Thank you Dolores, for orienting us so well. This was our first trip to Barcelona and we would all love to return!.



P.S. We "Seattle" folks loved seeing the sun, the beautiful balcony, + living roomto enjoy it.

Amazing Rental - Great Location

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was perfect for our stay and the location was unbeatable. Dolores is an amazing hostess. Her friend was there to greet us when we arrived and both she and Dolores made sure we knew they were available to help with anything we needed during our stay, which was a very comforting feelings as we set out to explore a new, foreign city. Unfortunately, we left a bag in a taxi and while we tried to contact the lost and found desk to retrieve the bag it wasn't found during our stay. However, the bag was later returned to Dolores, after we left, and Dolores amazingly contacted me and really went out of her way to send the bag and its contents (first she sent the passport in the bag to our rental in Lisbon and assured it arrived before we left to go home, and then she mailed the entire bag back to the USA) back to us. She could've easily discarded the bag when it was returned to her but really went above and beyond to help us and save our trip. We would definitely stay here again during our next trip to Barcelona.

So Sad to Leave. This amazing Location location

  • 5 of 5

Dolores provided excellent communication during booking, providing many helpful tips, brochures and restaurant suggestions prior to our arrival. Upon arrival at the appointed time 9:00 am Dolores greeted my wife and I for our 8 night stay with a bottle of champaign to celebrate my wife's birthday. The suite was exactly as shown in the photos.

The apartment was spotless and the coffee and tea provided was a nice touch.

The 2nd floor suite is actually on the 3rd floor and has 2 elevators. There are direct views overlooking the park from the wonderful terrace ( 4.8 x 10 feet approx ). We sat there every morning with our coffee and every night with a glass of wine.

Wifi was amazing and since we were still working it was appreciated.

A fantastic grocery - bakery- deli-pharmacy store is less than a minute walk.

In addition we were only a 10 minute walk to old town where there is an endless supply of

Restaurants and tapas bars in fact all the site seeing was within walking distance

Dolores's favorite restaurant quickly became one of ours. Restaurant Ciudadela offering menus of the day 12 euros for 3 course meal

And our two favorite taps bars were ( tapeo del born ) and ( Santaugustina ) both very creative menus and none touristy, we love to sit at the bar and meet the locals and fellow travellers.

We would definitely stay there again and highly recommend it to anyone.

For years we have provided vacation rentals in Playa Flamingo Costa Rica and this was our first opportunity to to be a guest in a vacation rental, a truly wonderful experience. Thank you Dolores

Great spot with balcony overlooking Ciutadella Park

  • 5 of 5

This perfectly situated 2nd floor(third counting the ground floor) apartment comes with a gracious host/tour guide-Dolores. She greets you upon arrival and offers to show you around, if you so prefer. There is no pressure, just an offer of company to some of her favorite spots within walking distance of this great location in a great city. These and other must-see destinations are marked and displayed in photos on a big wall map hanging in the apartment. So what can be an intimidating city is made instantly familiar and comfortable by Dolores, who lives right around the corner. The bustle of a busy city and the greenery of its biggest park are right outside your door or available on the spacious balcony, where we spent the beginning of each beautiful day. We had been provided with a welcome tray of cookies, coffee and bottled water-and we consumed it all. And again, just around the corner is a huge supermarket where we could get everything else we needed. The neighborhood is loaded with eateries and shops and the Gothic quarter is a 5 minute walk away, where Dolores seems to know every winding street. Tram stops are on the corner and subway stops also a 5 minute walk away. We walked to the waterfront, La Rambla, Sagrada Familia, etc., but you don't have to with transport being so close. One night Dolores went out with us for Tapas and Flamenco, both incredible places she knew and recommended. It was wonderful to hear her speaking Catalan and bargaining for us throughout the evening. All in all a unique and memorable vacation, thanks in large part to the combination of a great apartment and hostess. The pride she takes in her city and region/country is well deserved, and her friendly help and attention make you feel like its your city too.

Ideal location and Ideal Host

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in Barcelona was wonderful, and much of that was thanks to Dolores. Her flat was comfortable and in an ideal location. She went the extra mile by giving us a wonderful walking tour on the first day, helping us get oriented and a feel for her great city. She truly cares for her city and wants to make sure her guests have a fabulous stay. She is a first class host.

Sisters Birthday Celebration

  • 5 of 5

Barcelona was on my sisters bucket list, so I researched a spot in the city that would be close to the action yet serene enough on the days to relax. Dolores went above and beyond with accommodations, recommendations and hospitality. She gave us a warm welcome, checked in occasionally & provided maps with detailed info to all attractions. The apartment is clean, comfortable & in walking distance to all in a central location. Barcelona is one of the friendliest, helpful, clean and reasonable priced cities we have been to thus far. The 3 of us were sad to leave.... all in all... A perfect spot. We highly recommend choosing this apartment. ~ We would stay again in a heart beat! Thank you Dolores... for everything!
