Overview

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday apartment in Ciutat Vella - SweetHomeBarcelona

A 2-bed flats a few blocks away from Paseo de Gràcia, Plaça Catalunya and Rambla

This luxury apartments are perfectly located in an upmarket street in the heart of the Eixample district, the Quadrat d'Or (The Golden Square) of central Barcelona a few blocks away from exclusive areas such as Passeig de Gràcia, the Rambla and Plaça Catalunya. The apartments dates from around the year 1900 and have original 'Escofet' tiled floors and period features. We have worked carefully with designers and specialists to retain the original features whilst bringing the apartments into the 21st century by including stylish modern kitchens, bathrooms, comfortable living room with sofas, satellite television, DVD and CD player, dining area with table and chairs and period balcony looking over great period architecture.

The flats have hot/air conditioning. They are within comfortable walking distance of most top popular tourist sites such as Gaudi modernist architecture, designer shopping streets and the city 'Barceloneta beach'.

In our opinion this is one of the best areas for visiting Barcelona because of its central location and historical heritage. The apartments are peaceful at night and at weekends. There are great cafes, bars and restaurants close by which we can recommend and we have personally tried. The closest metro stations (Urquinaona and Tetuan) are only 2 minutes walk from the flat.

More Details

Details for holiday apartment Flat 1B - SHB, 2 Bedrooms, Sleeps 4, 1 Bathroom

Both apartments are equally nice and both very quiet! Apartment 1B has a small balcony overlooking the street. The view from the blacony in 1A is of the inside of the manzana (block). The master bedroom in 1A has an en suite bathroom with bath and shower. There is also a shower room adjacent to the second bedroom, but it is not en-suite. Both apartments are very comfortable for up to four guests with two double bedrooms (beds are doubles not twins) and I am sure that you would appreciate the combinations of period features with tasteful modern design. There is a detailed description of the apartments in the website: SweetHomeBarcelona.com

Our stay in Barcelona was made very comfortable staying at this cozy flat. Located in a central, yet quiet residential area, made exploring a beautiful city easy. The owners were very helpful and pleasant, making our visit extra special. The apartment has all modern conveniences. It was clean and well maintained and to our delight, stocked with some complimentary morning essentials. There are wonderful local resturaunts, and sightseeing, all located within walking distance from the apartment. We would definately consider staying here again. Thanks for the memories. K & D

A beautiful apartment in a great location for exploring Barcelona

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this apartment with our family of 4. It was in a great location within walking distance from many sites and yet in a quiet, safe neighborhood. The apartment is several floors up in a beautiful building with an elevator. The apartment while cozy was was appointed with everything we needed. There was wifi, a washing machine/dryer (all in one which I've never seen in the US), AC and a stocked kitchen. In addition to the two full sized beds there was a roll away cot that could be used. Our family of 4 was quite comfortable.

Isabel the owner met us at the apartment to get us settled. She provided details about the apartment and the area. Also provided was a booklet with all the information about the apartment and recommendations for dining and sites.

We highly recommend this apartment and would definitely stay here if/when we return to Barcelona.

Beautiful and wonderful location

  • 5 of 5

The property was wonderful, up to date with beautiful character of the original all the way down to the beautiful tile floors. Isabel was so kind to wait for us, an information booklet about using the TV and Internet and local sites and restaurants were all provided to make our stay wonderful. Barcelona is a beautiful city and the apartment lets you have a glimpse of living with some of the locals. Everything one could need or want is in walking distance along with all the sights.

Sweet Home Barcelona is sweet indeed!

  • 5 of 5

The first thing that is great about the apartment is its owner Isabel! She is really wonderful, caring and available at any time you like.

As far as the apartment goes it offers great luxury; comfortable beds, spacious living area, kitchen etc. The apartment is really clean and chic (I personally loved the floor tiles, we stayed in apartment 1-B).

The apartment has anything you might want and so much more!

The perfect place to stay in Barcelona

  • 5 of 5

My family and I have stayed in this apartment twice, and wouldn't hesitate to stay again the next time we visit Barcelona. I guess that should be enough of a review, in many ways...

However, the apartment is just perfect. Firstly, its position is ideal - far enough away from the crowds of las Ramblas and the old town, yet close enough to walk to the Boqueria, Barceloneta, and the many Gaudi buildings of Eixample.

The apartment is beautifully furnished and very well equipped. It really feels like a home from home.

Isabel is the perfect host and really goes out of her way to make you feel welcome and comfortable.

Of all the places we've stayed on our travels, this remains one of our absolute favourites. We really can't recommend it highly enough...

Above and beyond outstanding

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was the best rental experience I've ever had. I have rented apartments over the years in Italy and Paris, but this was my first visit to Barcelona. I was traveling with my husband and teenaged daughter, and booked apt.1B. without any prior knowledge of the city. This rental could not be lovelier! It had a great location, a few blocks from the main shopping and restaurant area, but also had wonderful cafes right on the street it was in.The apartment was beautifully decorated, immaculately clean, and whilst compact, was spacious enough for three people not to feel cramped. The welcome from Isobel,(who is charming,b.t.w.) included wine, chocolates and fresh flowers! an absolutely lovely touch. We felt like we were in a 5 star hotel. The apartment has air-conditioning, much appreciated in the summer heat, English language t.v. channels and shelves of English books. The bathroom had a very good shower, and the kitchen had everything we needed to make ourselves feel right at home.I also liked that the building was in a very safe neighbourhood, with secure doors and locks. Barcelona is a fantastic city for a holiday, and if I ever get a chance to return, I would definitely re-book this apartment.

You would be staying right in the heart of Barcelona in a building occupied by Catalan residents. These apartments are in a very safe area in the heart of the Eixample district, the Quadrat d'Or (The Golden Square) of central Barcelona just a few blocks from areas such as Passeig de Gràcia, Rambla de Catalunya and Plaça Catalunya. The entire area surrounding the apartment building is full of beautiful modernist buildings influenced by the modernist architects, chief among whom was Antoni Gaudí. The apartment is peaceful at night and at weekends.

As well as exploring the city itself, you can make day trips to the beautiful Catalan countryside, the city of Girona and the Costa Brava. Portaventura for the kids is only an hour's drive away.

Barcelona offers beautiful parks, stylish shopping; a top-class aquarium, zoo and a funfair at the top of Tibidabo mountain. When it comes to eating out, there is an abundance of great restaurants from simple tapas to Michelin-starred restaurants.
