Centro - Plaza Catalunya Apartment Rental Photos and Description

A designer Jewel, 1 minute walk from the Ramblas

The apartment is a designer jewel, furnished with 20thC modern classics by Le Corbusier, Eileen Gray, and Phillipe Starck. Contemporary works by American and European artists complement the decor. Distinctive structural ironwork by Barcelona craftsmen contrasts with the 19thC hand-painted, beamed ceiling. Carrer dels Tallers, a pedestrian street that crosses the northern most part of the Old City of Barcelona, begins at the famous Ramblas just below Plaza Catalunya and ends at the Plaza de la Universidad. Tallers has been described as the most characteristic street of the North Raval Barrio. Just around the corner is the sleek new Museum of Contemporary Art designed by Richard Meier. Galleries, boutiques, cafes and restaurants complement the many traditional shops and restaurants in the neighborhood. The area is becoming Barcelona's equivalent of New York's Soho, and was recently described by La Vanguardia as 'the emerging neighbourhood in Barcelona'.

Guestbook comments from the manager
I was very impressed with the apartment, couldn't fault one thing. I would definitely recommend this apartment to friends and family and I would use your website to book again. The greeter was lovely, facilities were perfect, location was brill, got more than we expected with appliances, bedding and towels. The coffee and tea in the presses I particularly thought was a lovely touch.

PERFEKTE UNTERKUNFT FÜR DEN STÄDTETRIP

  • 5 of 5
Wir können die Wohnung nur empfehlen. Sie ist perfekt gelegen in einer Seitenstraße der Ramblas.
Wir haben zu dritt 6 Nächte dort verbracht und würden immer wieder kommen.
Nach der Ankunft am Flughafen sind wir mit dem Aerobus zum Placa Catalunya gefahren. Von dort aus sind es nur wenige Minuten zu Fuß zum Appartement. Der Vermieter war auch am späten Ostersonntag sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit und versorgte uns mit tollen Tipps. Die Wohnung war perfekt sauber und gut ausgestattet. Die Betten waren bei Ankunft frisch bezogen und wir bekamen ausreichen Handtücher.
Geht man aus der Haustüre, so kommt man nach wenigen entweder in das rege treiben der Ramblas oder, was wir persönlich charmanter fanden in das lebhafte Uni-Viertel mit vielen tollen Cafés, Bars und Restaurants. Alle Mahlzeiten haben wir unterwegs eingenommen. Besonders das Frühstück ist äußerst charmant in den süßen Cafés.
Durch die Nähe zum placa catalunya ist man auch sofort mitten im u-bahnnetz der stadt. Alle Sehenswürdigkeiten sind so prima zu erreichen.
Kurzum, es war die perfekte Unterkunft und ein toller Urlaub in Barcelona.
Liebe Grüße an Joan & Eoin

ESCAPE FROM ENGLAND

  • 5 of 5
A very clean, cosy studio apartment that was very central to the main road La Rambla. Transport links to everywhere was convenient as there are two metro stations close by.

BRILLIANT BOLT HOLE IN BARCELONA!

  • 5 of 5
This studio apartment is a jewel hidden right in the centre of Barcelona's crown. Having never been to this city before, we wanted somewhere relatively central and this was the perfect spot. Just a few steps from las Ramblas and Placa Catalunya, my husband and I found it ideal. The studio was secure, spotlessly clean, had modern facilities and the outlook over the street gave us an insight into the true Barcelonian lifestyle. Cafes and bread shops are close to hand and the Carrefour on Las Ramblas meant we could easily buy supplies and not have to carry them too far. Mind you, the 53 steps to the studio (yes I counted) will test the faint hearted, aged or infirm, although not as many as the towersof Sagrad Familia!
We had an amazing time exploring, the metro was simple and relatively cheap, the open top tourists buses are a great way to rest your legs whilst still seeing all the main sights and the return to the studio, listening to the sounds of the city going slowly to sleep, was a fantastic end to the days. If the bustle of real life gets too much the windows will block out the noise but we prefered to experience the raw energy of the city.
Highlight? Too many to mention but I especially liked the Banjo Busker below the balcony. We also went for Tapa and Flamenco at Poblo Espanyol - not to be missed!
A fantastic visit; thank you for helping to make it so.

VERY CONVENIENT

  • 3 of 5
We enjoyed our stay very much and the owners, who live in the region are very helpful. The location is very convenient to everything and in an interesting old area of narrow streets and lanes and there are lots of good cafes to be found. For vegetarians, the Cafe Teresa Carles is just around the corner in C de Jovellanos and there is a good choice of vegetarian fare for lunch across the other side of the Ramblas at Naturista in Carrer de Santa Anna.

The studio apartment is very small/compact and the balcony is tiny, but it's good to put a couple of chairs on it and enjoy a glass or two of vino, while watching the world go by below. The stairs are a bit challenging in this quite old traditional building, but shouldn't be a problem if you are moderately fit.

There is a university nearby and the area has quite a buzz and attracts a lot of young people, so there is quite a lot of street noise until late in evenings. But it helps being quite high up, and you can close the windows and shutters to reduce the level significantly.

Overall, the studio apartment proved convenient and good value for money.

ROMANTIC HIDEAWAY!

  • 5 of 5
Fantastic location for a romantic city break. Only metres away from all the action of La Ramblas but quiet and full of character. Plenty of places in the vicinity to eat and drink without the 'tourist feel'. Lethal cocktails at the Whiskeria..made the stairs up to the apartment a challenge!!

Apartment well furnished and ideal for watching the world go by from the balcony with a glass of cava. Eoin, Joan's son, was great at check in, and gave lots of useful pointers on local sights and socialising. We can't wait to go back...soon!

PERFECT PLACE IN THE HISTORIC CENTRE OF BARCELONA

  • 5 of 5
I booked this apartment when visiting my daughter who is studying in Barcelona. It was was brilliant.
The location is perfect: a few steps from La Rambla (but without the La Rambla noise), in a pedestrianised street full of quaint shops and bars. The street is well lit at night and it felt completely safe walking there after dark. It is just a few minutes walk to Placa Catalunya where the terminal for the airport shuttle bus is, and there are plenty of shops, bars and restaurants nearby - plus you can easily walk to the beach and many places of interest, such as Boqueria Market or Gaudi houses for example.
The apartment itself is clean, spacious, well equipped and maintained, and also very comfortable and pretty.
The booking and payment process was easy and hassle free, the owner responded to all my queries immediately and was very flexible when it came to late check out.
You can book this apartment with confidence - you will not be disappointed!
