CITY CENTRE AND BEACH SIDE WITH AIRCON!

Barceloneta Apartment Rental Photos and Description

1 bedroom, 1 bathroom, sleeps 2 (or 3-4 with kids on sofa bed)

Beautiful, little apartment in typical Barceloneta 1900 building 100m from the beach and sea and with a view of the beach/sea from the balcony. (Lateral view)

Air-conditioned, fully restored apartment with modern bathroom, kitchen, etc, redecorated and bathroom changed in 2009.

The balcony is large enough to sit out on and take breakfast in the sunshine, with a lateral view to the beach, just one block away.

This property offers the amazing combination of being in a city centre with all the facilities and attractions on hand -and also just a minute's walk (if that) from the sea and a long, sandy beach. You are surrounded by great seafood restaurants in an area that is safe and quiet at night. If you want late bars and discos they are just 15 minutes walk away.

Other sites: Picasso Museum and city park, El Born, zoo, marina 5 minute's walk.

Ramblas and Barri-Gotic: 15 minutes walk.

Friendly Service: Cameron the owner will meet you and help you settle in at whatever time of the day or night you arrive.

City info and a 5 minute guide to local amenities are also provided.

The apartment is professionally serviced and all towels and linen are of a good quality, laundered, ironed and regularly replaced.

Extra services: If you wish the following can be provided at an extra charge:

Spanish lessons and Spanish conversation - by arrangement 15€ per hour, minimum 6 hours over the holiday.

Daily servicing - 10€ extra just for cleaning, 20€ with laundry and towel change.

Home cooked meals - on request in advance

Payment: Normally in cash on arrival but can also be by bank transfer to a Spanish or UK bank and soon by credit card.

Comments from Owner Guestbook

I have so many glowing write-ups from previous guests but it seems disingenuous to include them here - take a look at the visitors book when you arrive or I have kept some e-mails which I can send on with the guests permission.
This is one of two apartments that I have on holiday-rentals and one of eleven in Barcelona. It is my full time job to look after the apartments and I employ two cleaners a handy man and a second in command for when I am away or can't meet you due to being at another apartment. Many guests return and all recommend their friends. Discounts are offered to repeat customers.

Close to the beach

  • 4 of 5
My husband and I and our two small children (aged 5 and 11 months) enjoyed our stay in Barcelona. The flat was roomy enough and they even had a little pack and play set up for our baby in the bedroom. Our 5 year old slept on the sofa (which wasn't as clean as I would have liked and I'm not sure the sofa cover was washed and I know the pillows weren't), but he seemed okay with the sofa.
This flat is only a few blocks from the beach and close enough to walk to the Ramblas (which was did multiple times). The beach is gorgeous. There is a small grocery store nearby, which was convenient. (Restaurants in Barcelona were so much $$. Having a kitchen in the flat was great!) There is a metro stop nearby, which was easy to use. The neighborhood got a little noisy at night due to the game between FCB and Real Madrid, but our kids slept through it. We also LOVED having a washer to wash our clothes. Perfect for our traveling family.
I'd stay here again and I'd recommend it to a friend. (But I'd tell them to maybe wash the blankets themselves before they use them.)

Located in Barceloneta one of the city centre's most charming and authentic 'barrios'. The area was built in the late 1800s as Barcelona's fishing port and was the first area to be built outside the medieval city walls.

Although the fishing port and boats are now hidden by piazzas, yachts and sand, the area still boasts many great (Barcelona's best) seafood restaurants and tapas bars - especially alongside the marina front.

Barceloneta is full of Spanish and Catalan charm and idiosyncrasies, washing drapes over the balconies and old ladies chat from their windows to their neighbours across the street.

Barceloneta is very much part of the old city centre 'Ciutat Vella' and is nestled between the beach and El Born, the most upmarket old city centre district which is a 10 minute walk away for many classy restaurants and bars.

Walking to the Ramblas is a 15 minute stroll across the harbour front - or take the cable car. The medieval city is also a 10- 15 minute walk.

Other Activities: Just about everything as you are both by the beach and in the city centre

    ALSO:
    The apartment can sleep 2 further children on the sofa bed (1.5x1.4m) or one further adult. But really we feel that the apartment is small for so many people. Also we have removed the door to the bedroom for easier access so there is not so much privacy for 3 or 4 people.
