This extremely comfortable apartment combines all of the modern conveniences with a unique design and a fabulous 45-square meter private terrace. The apartment sleeps 6: 2 bedrooms, each with a queen-size bed, and a large fold-out sofa bed in the living room (with a mattress that rolls over the top for extra comfort). The flat also has 2 complete bathrooms, (one with a shower and the other with a romantic bathtub), overhead track lighting, a classic brick and wood, rolling ceiling and a fireplace! The living room, dining room and kitchen are all filled with light.
The beautiful private terrace contains a table with four chairs and a barbecue. There are also reclining chairs for relaxing & sunbathing and an outdoor shower if you need to cool off! A quiet and elegant apartment in the city center, this is a perfect home away from home in Barcelona.
Born and raised in San Francisco, I have been living in Barcelona for the last 15 years, where I work as a writer for a small jazz record label. My wife Floriana is an architect from Italy. We have a four-year old daughter Luna who is our pride and joy. Despite coming from different places, Barcelona has really become home for us.
Eric Mills purchased this apartment in 2013
I've only owned this apartment for a short time. I knew that I wanted to get a place near the Arco de Triunfo, as I've fallen in love with the openness of the street Paseo San Juan and its proximity to so many of my favorite places. I had been searching in this area until I finally found this fabulous apartment!
The flat is both modern and minimalist, yet warm and cozy. The huge terrace, tastefully designed rooms and high beautiful ceilings all combine to make this an extremely delightful and relaxing place for a romantic or family-oriented get away.
This flat was heaven in Barcelona! Our family of 4 stayed here for two weeks and had the best time. The terrace was key! It's clean, modern design was simple yet comfortable. The location of the flat is perfect for walking and hiking all over Barcelona. The owner and manager of the property are very helpful with tips on where to go and what to see as well. Highly highly recommended!
We loved everything about this flat. Super comfortable. Outdoor space is awesome. Location was perfect. Eric was a fantastic host. Met us on the street and showed us around. He provided excellent suggestions for great food and sightseeing. We can't wait to come back. Highly recommend!!!
The owner Eric insisted that we damaged the toilet and withheld most of our deposit as a result. Since we had no problems with the toilets and had done nothing to them, this came as a complete surprise. He said the cistern had been found opened without unscrewing it, which we did not do. No one inspected the apartment before we left. If you are considering renting this apartment, I would urge you to insist on an inspection prior to your leaving with a return of your deposit at that time.
The apartment is very dark with the only light coming from the windows in the kitchen. The lights on the walls in the living/dining room were not working, which the owner knew and did not repair despite our request. The lights in the other rooms were too dim. The owner also knew that the awning's motor on the patio was broken, but that did not concern us. It is difficult to get in and out of the shower, and there was no floor mat. The second bedroom is small with its wardrobe in the hall. The photos on the website made the apartment look more elegant than it is.
Noise from the apartment above is a big problem with footsteps, running, phones ringing, and talking. There was also a very loud party next door that went on quite late.
On the plus side, the apartment is large and nicely located. The terrace is nice, although it was too hot for us to use it.
Because of our negative experience with the owner and the amount of noise, we cannot recommend this apartment.
We really enjoyed Eric's flat located in a great neighborhood. We enjoyed being able to walk to the beach and the main attraction. The flat was close enough to pull our luggage and use the Aerobus to the airport to catch our flight home After travelling for a month it was so nice to have a clothes washer and dryer and a nice big patio to read, relax, and enjoy our home cooked meals.
We visited the apartment for a long citytrip weekend. Lovely 2 bedroom apartment on a great spot on walking distance from all must-sees of Barcelona. Also the manager Cinzia was of great help with good suggestions for dining and brunches.
Lovely roomy property in a very central location.. Well stocked kitchen with a fabulous American style fridge freezer. The terrace was a real bonus which we used for both dining and relaxing. An excellent choice!
This apartment is located only 3 blocks away from the Arco de Triunfo and Barcelona's beautiful Ciutadella Park (with the zoo) and only a 10-minute walk to the charming Born neighborhood in the Gothic quarter, and the very center of the city at Plaza de Cataluña and Las Ramblas. It is also close to two different metro stops, Barcelona's primary bus station and walking distance from the Sagrada Familia and Hospital San Pau, as well as Gaudi's lovely buildings on Paseo de Gracia: La Pedrera and the Casa Batlló.
In addition, there are numerous outstanding restaurants within a short walking distance (I will provide you with a list). Quiet yet centrally located, the area is perfect for a relaxing and exciting get-away!

As this is a legally rented apartment I am also obliged to charge a tourist tax of €0.75 per night (for a maximum of 7 nights) for each person over 17 years old. The money is then paid to the city's tax authorities.
