About Ana Hernanz

I was born in Ibiza and went to Barcelona to study translation and interpreting. I immediately fell in love with the city: its architecture, the beach, the whole myriad of cafes and nice little squares at barrio gótico... and Gaudi all over the place. Although I now work and live most of the time in Berlin, I still feel Barcelona as my home. My apartment there and its terrace are one of my favorite spots on earth.

Ana Hernanz purchased this apartment in 2005

Why Ana Hernanz chose L'Antiga Esquerra de l'Eixample

The apartment is perfectly located to explore the city from there and still not feel overwhelmed by its quick pace and noisy streets when you are at home. It is an attic, located on the sixth floor in a quiet street, so you can quietly have breakfast or dinner on the terrace. At night, you look directly on the beautiful Tibidabo church, all lit up. During the day, you are just eight blocks away from Paseo de Gracia or Rambla Catalunya (Barcelona's high streets and Gaudi's most famous buildings) and it takes only 15 minutes to walk to the Ramblas. By tube it is two stops: just 5 minutes.

The apartment is full of light and sun. I enjoy every single day I spend there.

What makes this apartment unique

I like having a cup of tea or a glas of wine lying on the sofa on the terrace, looking at the seagulls fly by, watching the roofs and the changing sunlight as the day comes to an end. I the morning you can watch the sunrise from bed. The terrace is my absolutely favorite spot in the apartment and the reason why I bought it, together with its central location.

A lovely stay in Barcelona in February

  • 4 of 5

The description on Home Away was very accurate. The apartment was in a great area. We were pleasantly surprised to find there was an elevator in the building! The apt had a very comfortable bed, the kitchen was quite well equipped although having more than one wine glass would have been nice. We made fresh orange juice with the juicer for the first time. No toaster but found you can toast bread with the oven set to broil and works just fine. Very nice having a washing machine. There was no dryer but there was a line outside the kitchen window where you could hang the clothes. The apt was within 3 blocks of the subway (Urgell) which we used a number of times. It was also about 3 blocks away from the Airport bus stop. There was a great deli 2 doors down where we bought our dinner a few times. There were a couple of grocery stores very close with anything you need. The weather was a bit cool at times to sit out on the terrace but when the sun was out it was a wonderful place to sit and enjoy a glass of wine. Ana answered our emails promptly and we received our damage deposit as soon as we left the apartment. She also had great tips on places to see while we were in Barcelona. In particular Parc del Laberint d'Horta. I would definitely recommend this apartment.

Perfect Apartment, Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

Loved our time here while we visited Barcelona. The apartment had everything we needed and we were so comfortable. It was located in a quiet, local neighborhood that was central to everything. Ana was so easy to work with and she was the perfect host. I can't recommend this apartment enough.

Fantastic Apartment! Wonderful owner!

  • 5 of 5

This is a fantastic apartment. We rented it for 7 weeks this summer and loved living there. We will rent it again. It was even better than the description and pictures. The terrace is amazing. We ate many meals out there. If we weren't at Mar Bella Beach we were on the terrace. This rental is perfectly located, close to everything. The Metro is a short walk away. Markets, bakeries, butchers (try Nigra Sum on the same block), restaurants (try Flouta), and cafes all within a block or three. We can't say enough good things about this rental, and we always felt safe coming home late at night. We have already recommended to several friends. If you're down in the Gothic area stop by "Ziryab" and "La Cucine Mandarosso". Both are tiny local restauant favorites. In Raval try La Reina del Raval. We got great haircuts at Manolo's in the Gothic. And, of course, there is always a day at the Tibidado amusement park which can be seen at the top of the mountain from the terrace. For the adventurous - go to the "Parc del Labrerint d'Horta. It's a centuries old labyrinth hedge garden. We hope to be back in Barcelona soon. B+H

What a lovely apartment & what a graceful landlady

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Ana for this loverly apartment: everything went very well! The apartment is situated perfectly next to the underground trainstation Urgell and so you can get into the city in some minutes. Even a walk to the Ramblas is worth to enjoy. We found everything in a proper condition and the first morning coffee on the terrace is a dream.

We highly recommend this apartment.

Wonderful apartment

  • 5 of 5

What a great apartment! The terrace is the perfect place for breakfast, homemade tapas, dinner, relaxing. If you like to buy local food at the market and cook it at the apartment, this is the place to do it. The apartment is very clean and nice, it is in a good neighborhood. The walk into the heart of old town Barcelona is a pleasant walk and takes about 15 minutes. The metro station is convenient and gets you there in less time. The owner is helpful and responsive to questions. She provided us with very good advice about beaches and food. Our arrival and departure was taken care of with professionalism and went very smoothly. I highly recommend this apartment.
