L'Antiga Esquerra de l'Eixample Apartment Rental Photos and Description
Apartment, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-3)
A wonderful apartment in a very central and very safe location! Only 10 minutes on foot to Plaza Catalunya and Las Ramblas and in the middle of the Eixample neighbourhood. This one-bedroom apartment is situated on the top floor of a building dating back to the turn of the 20th century -Modernista style - and has got an elevator.
It has been furnished with both very modern furniture (Italian design) and antiques. It has got a brand-new parquet-flooring and the walls are covered with art.
The penthouse has got a recently refurbished, very modern and comfortable bathroom with shower and a washing machine, a kitchen with all amenities, a large living room on two levels with a sofa-bed, a bedroom with a good quality, comfortable queen-size bed and a built-in wardrobe, and, last but not least, a lovely private terrace full of Mediterranean plants (think bougainvillea, hibiscus, olive trees,...).
The terrace is a perfect sunny breakfast spot or could be used for a slow dinner complete with evening breeze. THE APARTMENT HAS A WIFI CONNECTION (bring your own laptop/device).
This 55-square-meter penthouse is very quiet although it is very centrally located (ten minutes to Plaza Catalunya and Las Ramblas, ten minutes to Paseo de Gracia and Gaudi's houses, one minute to the covered Ninot food market, ten minutes to the neighbourhood of Gracia..) as it is situated away from the street. It has lots of light coming into it as well, which is a rarity in Barcelona.
Immediately outside the apartment are many little family-owned shops like a bakery, delicatessen, butcher, greengrocer, fishmonger, high-speed internet cafe, nail studio, etc. Nearby is a big food market and there are also many supermarkets in the vicinity.
The neighbourhood has got a wonderful village feeling to it; you will be living where the real Barcelonians live. Close by are also some great restaurants where you will find mostly local people and where prices are still reasonable.
This penthouse is used by the owner when in the city and therefore very homely. There are bookshelves full of books, mostly in English, but also in Dutch, Italian, and Spanish. There are Persian carpets and other accessories that you will not find in a standard rental apartment. It has got air conditioning, heating, TV, video, DVD, stereo, and CD player with lots of CDs.
Great value for money. Only available to 1-2 responsible adults or a small responsible family. Not apt for party-people or small children.
Special rates for stays over 2 weeks.

Guestbook comments from the owner
Loved staying here. Reminded me of living on the lower east side of Manhattan many years ago, a rooftop apartment on 2nd Avenue. The proximity to see the wonders of Barcelona made me happy.. happy. Regards
I bought this unique apartment in 2001 and have been renting it out since 2007. I have been working in tourism for the past 20 years and speak English, French, German, Spanish, Italian, Dutch and little Russian and Portuguese. I have quite a nomadic lifestyle, but can count on my wonderful property managers for any emergencies that may arise.
This penthouse is very centrally located, yet away from the tourist playgrounds. It has a lovely private terrace and is very calm and quiet.
When I am staying in the apartment I enjoy on getting up to make a strong coffee and having it on the terrace in my pyamas.. relaxing, looking at the plants, their flowers.. Later I prepare breakfast and have it on the terrace as well, going over my e-mail using the fast WIFI connection. If I would leave the building I will have all necessary shops on my left and right, various bakeries, the greengrocer, a cafe, the flower shop, the fish monger, the butcher, the market where they have a wonderful selection of olives, cured hams, Spanish cheeses and other interesting stuff.. In the evening I might cook a meal for friends and either have it on the terrace or inside, using the dining table where they'll admire all the contemporary art hanging on the walls. Or I might meet friends in one of the many typical non-touristy restaurants in this great neighbourhood.
