More reasons to choose Bailèn 41:

Immerse yourself in Barcelona, in a neighborhood that remains the epicenter of Modernista architecture from the late 1880s through early 1900s: Gaudí, Domènech, Sagnier.

Nest in a building with all the flourish and fancy of Catalan art in tile, iron, wood, stone, and glass work. Bailèn 41 enjoys designation as architecturally significant.

Extend your art and architecture experience inside Bailèn 41 with furnishings selected to reflect the heritage of Barcelona and Catalan design and craftsmanship, from your very first step into the entrance on modernista-style floor tiles. Custom-made bed tables feature 'rescued' floor tiles, the marble-top café table affords a romantic view of interior gardens, and artwork on the walls provides a sample of what is awaiting you at Barcelona museums.

This is the perfect place to start and end those busy days of exploring Barcelona. With its interior location in the building, the apartment is shielded from street noises yet enjoys expansive views from the glassed-in galeria.

Sleep soundly and wake to bird songs from the manzana. Step out of the building and a short walk in any direction brings you to treasured destinations: Palau de la Música Catalana, Mercat de la Concepció, l'Arc de Triomf, Parc de la Ciutadella, Plaça Catalunya, Las Ramblas. Our blog contains suggested 'Walking Tours' to many of these sites. The blog is linked on our Facebook page: "Barcelona Apartment for Rent"

On your return, enjoy the high-speed fiber optic internet access to share photos of your adventures with distant friends, make a gourmet dinner in the fully equipped kitchen, or sip a glass of wine in the galeria before heading back out to one of the many cafes and restaurants that abound in the neighborhood.

Bailèn 41 offers those special touches that make the difference between a short-term rental and a real vacation home.

In the bedroom, sleep on 100% cotton sheets and your choice of feather or foam pillows . . . or both! The large commodious wardrobe allows you to arrange your belongings for easy access; no need to live out of your suitcase! Just store it away in the separate luggage storage room, out of sight, out of mind, and out of your traffic pattern.

Bailèn 41 also features a newly created "back office" with large desk and even more storage shelves and drawers, allowing you to keep and charge all your electronics in one convenient place.

As our valued guest, you receive personalized attention from the owner-operators. We answer all your pre-stay questions promptly and thoroughly: everything from the best way to obtain euros to what upcoming special events might be of interest. We personally greet you on arrival at the apartment (not some central office miles away) and orient you to your vacation home away from home. We also personally check you out when you depart. And, of course, we are available during your stay for questions or assistance, including arranging for taxi pick-up.

Please note that, while ample, Bailèn 41 purposefully limits the number of guests to two per stay. Exceptions are made only for nonwalking infants.

Bailèn 41 is licensed for tourist rentals by the city of Barcelona and the province of Catalunya (license #HUTB-009952) and managed directly by the owners. IMPORTANT NOTE: Barcelona is cracking down on 'illegal' tourist apartments, i.e., those not registered with the city. Some visitors are arriving to find their vacation rental shut down by the police. Make sure your Barcelona rental is 'legal'; check for that HUTB number.

About Linda Fernandez

Linda and Kurt, the owner-operators of Bailèn 41, moved permanently to Barcelona in 2013 after trying out various places in Latin America, including Buenos Aires, Argentina, and San Miguel de Allende, Mexico, where we also owned and managed short-term rentals.

When we travel, we like to stay in apartments because of the flexibility, convenience, and value-added they provide. We're sensitive to those special touches that make the difference between a short-term rental and a real vacation home, especially those involving cleanliness and order. We are focused on ensuring that your stay in Barcelona is worry-free. We personally greet you upon arrival and check you out on departure. And we are readily available for questions. We also offer concierge services for securing tickets, making reservations, etc.

Bailèn 41also guarantees check-in on arrival at the apartment instead of waiting for some arbitrary check-in time. Our guests - principally from Canada, USA, and Australia - really enjoy this amenity!

Wonderful place, great location!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this place! Linda greeted us with open arms, and tons of great information. She was lovely, and the place was just as great! You have every single thing you could desire there. The location was perfect,. You can easily walk anywhere. The view from the condo was so cute, and the large windows were amazing. The bed was super comfortable, even with any pillow you could desire. I am definitely bringing my husband back to visit soon! This is a great place for friends, a couple, or someone traveling alone. Very safe building, very clean!

An absolute gem, and the best hosts ever. We loved it!!

  • 5 of 5

There’s not enough space here to truly convey what a wonderful experience it was staying at Bailèn 41. The apartment is so beautifully decorated, comfortable, immaculately clean, and extremely well-appointed, it became a place we loved waking up to and coming home to at the end of each long sightseeing day.

Natural light floods the apartment from the huge gallery windows, the windows open tall and wide to let in ample fresh air, and the apartment itself is airy and spacious with a beautiful view of neighbors’ patios and plants and laundry hung out to dry in the Barcelona sun and breeze.

The location is fantastic and everything you could possibly want is provided, from a well-stocked kitchen and bath to numerous Barcelona guide books and maps, even money belts in case you forgot one.

But what really makes Bailèn 41 truly amazing are the hosts. The apartment is wonderful because of what they put into it. Linda gives a lot of thought into providing her guests with what she would want from a vacation rental.

On our evening arrival there was coffee in the cupboard, milk in the fridge, and fresh breakfast items so we wouldn’t have to worry about our first morning meal. Linda shared with us a wealth of knowledge about all things Barcelona. And when the taxis went on strike and blocked roads just before we were to leave, Linda reached out to us to inform us about transportation issues, planned an alternate route to the airport, and even personally escorted us through the metro to the Aerobus at Plaça d'España!

If I could give this review 10 stars I would. Bailèn 41 is a gem of an apartment, and we cannot imagine there exists in the world kinder, more thoughtful hosts than Linda and Kurt. If Bailèn 41 is available on your vacation dates, consider yourself extremely fortunate. We hope we have the good fortune to one day return.

Beautiful Vacation Stay

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is incredibly clean, fully equipped, and such a spacious place to stay for a nice vacation away. Linda and Kurt are more than accommodating and made sure we had everything we needed. It was nice to have supplies to make our own morning coffee and cook some of our meals in the kitchen and have all the right utensils/appliances/etc. to do it.

Will absolutely be staying here again :)

Loved my stay!!!

  • 5 of 5

The place was immaculately clean and spacious with all the amenities I needed in a central location. The host was gracious and responsive It was quite a bit larger larger than I needed but I will definitely stay there next time I visit Barcelona.

Thanks Linda!

More than just an apartment

  • 5 of 5

My experience staying at Bailèn 41 was so wonderful that it’s hard for me to put it into words. It’s not only beautiful, quite and located in a great part of town. From the moment I entered the apartment I felt so welcomed. The place is decorated with such good taste and it’s fully equipped with anything you might need and more. The amount of love that Linda and Kurt have put into every detail is really heart-warming. I hope I will have the chance to stay there again soon.
