PASSEIG DE GRACIA - THE MOST EXCLUSIVE AVENUE IN THE HEART OF THE CITY.

THE ABSOLUTE BEST LOCATION POSSIBLE IN BARCELONA.

A wonderful, spacious, open plan Studio loft with 24 hour wifi connection if you bring your laptop. The absolute best location possible. You cannot be more centrally located. Passeig de Gracia is the most upmarket avenue of Barcelona with the best shops and Gaudi buildings = Casa Batllo and La pedrera are in the same avenue. Being on the corner of Plaza Catalunya, puts you in the heart of the city with the best public transport connections, the airport shuttle bus and of course, most things of interest within walking distance.

This is a wonderful gem in every way: Excellent large Studio Loft with oodles of character within an extremely elegant turn of the century modernista building, AND, with the best location possible - PASSEIG DE GRACIA/PASEO DE GRACIA.

Just look at a map and you can see immediately that an apartment on PASSEIG DE GRACIA, seconds from the famous LAS RAMBLAS is a real find! This is THE address in Barclona. The Studio Loft is part of a beautiful grand building as one would expect from the location, PASSEIG DE GRACIA - THE ADDRESS IN BARCELONA.

You enter into a wonderful marble hall with elaborate wrought iron work, stained glass and an extremely elegant staircase. You can see immediately that this is a very fine building indeed. There are two glass lifts/elevators up to the fifth floor where the spacious, very high ceilinged, Studio Loft is located in the 'Mansard' - excellent views.

As you enter you immediately notice the space of this very stylish Studio Loft with enormously high wooden cathedral style ceilings - I could easily add another floor but like the feel and character of this home as it is.

The bathroom is also spacious and is all white, marble and clean with bathtub, shower, bidet etc etc.

The kitchen area has all that is needed for a very comfortable stay - naturally all crockery, cutlery etc is provided.

Here you will find an oven, burners, toaster,coffee makers, electric kettle, microwave, fridge, washing machine etc etc. the living area is very comfortable and cosy and naturally fully furnished with armchair, sofas, bookshelves, TV, music centre, cupboard space, dining table and chairs. The sleeping area has a Queen size bed and ample wardrobe space.

Naturally it is fully air conditioned and heated. What more can I say??This is truly an exceptional property in the absolute best position possible in town!! I consider this to be of very good value.

Just seconds from Plaza Catalunya and therefore a two minute walk to the famous Las Ramblas and the Gothic Quarter. PASSEIG DE GRACIA of course has the famous Gaudi buildings, Casa Batllo and La Pedrera PLUS all the best shops in town!! All within literally minutes of the Studio. The Location could not be bettered.

To cover some basics - Yes, all linen, towels, cutlery, crockery etc are provided. .PLEASE BRING YOUR OWN FACE CLOTHS AS EUROPEANS GENERALLY NEVER USE THEM. PLEASE NEVER USE HAND AND SHOWER TOWELS TO REMOVE MAKE UP.

The supermarket is located just a minute away and is open till 1000pm nightly (except Sundays). I shall be pleased to answer any questions you may have regarding your stay in this lovely mediterranean city and happy to welcome you to this super Studio Loft.

AVAILABLE ONLY FOR 1 OR 2 RESPONSIBLE ADULTS OR A RESPONSIBLE FAMILY. This is not a party place!

PLEASE DO RESPECT THE PROPERTY AND DO NOT USE THE TOWELS FOR SHOE AND MAKE UP CLEANING.

About The Owner

Hello, I am Derek, a freelance European Tour Director and a Londoner.

The Owner purchased this apartment in 1998

Why The Owner chose Dreta de l'Eixample

This is an easy question! I chose to live on Passeig de Gracia as it is 'THE' address in Barcelona. Passeig de Gracia is the most elegant and most central avenue of the city. Having lived for two years on Passeig de Gracia, loving every minute of the sheer ease of living within walking distance of everything and being in the heart of such a wonderful city, I decided to buy another apartment, this lovely studio loft in 1998. My original home on Passeig de Gracia is listing 11323 which is also on VRBO. This studio had everything I wanted: The right location, a beautiful period building, unusual ceiling features and a magnificent view of the city.

What makes this apartment unique

I often stay at this flat when in Barcelona. This is in the middle of everything - a perfect location. Diagonally opposite is Barcelona's main department store with an extremely well stocked supermarket with wet fish counter, butcher , greengrocer and fruiterer - all the best products opposite my studio loft. Arrival and departure is also fantastically easy, I feel spoilt! The Airbus to the airport departs and arrives just outside El Corte Ingles, the above mentioned department store - in other words, opposite the flat.

The new Apple store is just next door.

When staying here, I very rarely use transport of any kind as I can walk everywhere. In the summer months, the beach is just a 10 minute(if that) metro ride away.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Derek,



We enjoyed our stay in Barcelona, especially in your loft. It had everything we needed. We would recommend this rental to anyone thinking of renting in Barcelona. The location couldn't have been better.

Martin was extremely helpful.

Charming with view and location to die for!!!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in Barcelona and could not have picked a better apartment. The location was superb! Take Aerobus shuttle from the airport and it dropped us just about at the front door in the heart of the city near the BEST shops and restaurants! Derek our owner was kind, courteous and always easy to reach. The apartment is homey and charming and arriving to fresh flowers, wine glasses and a fresh bottle of spanish wine was appreciated. We felt safe had a quiet well stocked apartment and a TV with English options when we needed a little down time! We would stay here again and again! We cooked, we could freshen up our laundry and walk right to the middle of everything. Doorman was so nice and building was very secure and it seemed like we had a private elevator as it was always quick and available! Enjoy!

Fabulous stay

  • 5 of 5

Everything about the apartment was as described, and it definitely lived up to all expectations. Meeting Martin who gave me the keys was one of the highlights....he was fabulous! Gave me many recommendations and spent time with me as I got acquainted with the area.

The apartment has everything you need for a city stay, a well equipped kitchen area and plenty of bedding supplies. I would highly recommend this property.

The loft is cozy, well appointed - perfect for two adults. The kitchen is well equipped, tv has options for selecting languages, washing machine & dishwasher a bonus. We will absolutely return!

Three Terrific C's and an H

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful place to stay to enjoy Barcelona! The 3 C's are Charm, Comfort and Convenience--and the H is Hercles! My husband and I spent 4 days in this lovely apartment. It's charming because the apartment's decor is pretty and contemporary amidst a building and area replete with history and tradition. Look out the window and smile at the funky waterworks tower as you gaze past the moderniste roofline across the street! It's comfortable for a host of reasons, not the least of which is the huge comfy bed! The apartment is roomy, and there are all the little touches that lend comfort away from home--plenty of guidebooks and books to read, an eclectic cd collection, an adaptor to charge my 120V camera battery (which I forgot to pack), fluffy big bath towels, kitchen extras, wonderful sofas to collapse on after a long day...and on and on. And it's convenient--how could it not be located just steps from the Plaza de Catalunya. Walking to so many places of interest is easy, fun, and if not, there are buses or taxis in the plaza. We recommend a long, leisurely stroll in Ciutadella Park where on a Sunday afternoon we saw street entertainers from tap dancers to a marionette frog piano player to a man rolling in a hula hoop contraption and much more--so fun!! Catch a taco at a nearby cafe. Finally, there is Hercles, the apartment manager, who is a gem. We had phone trouble, and Hercles was so accommodating. Though his English is limited, it is just fine, and his friendliness and helpfulness are first-rate. Barcelona is lucky to have Derek's Studio Loft and Hercles as unofficial representatives of such a delightful city! Many thanks--Jennifer and Tim
