This spacious apartment (90 square meters), carefully and warmly decorated has all the necessary amenities to make easy both a short stay as a longer.

It's a flat with two double rooms, two large bathrooms (one with a very comfortable shower, the other with bathtub). It's wide kitchen is fully equipped (dishwasher, oven, microwave, a gas stove with 5 burners, and big fridge with freezer).

The 30 sq.m dining and living room offers you all the comfort you can wait after a day walking round the city. It's kitchen, opened to the dining room, makes easy to have breakfast or supper at the apartment.

I'm from Barcelona, I was born here and I live here. I love my city, its cultural offer, its gastronomic offer, the cinemas, the theaters, the restaurants, the tapas bar... I enjoy walking kilometers with my dog and discovering new cute shops, good restaurants, interesting groceries. Then, I can offer this information to my guests.

Mar Mellado / Xavier Vegué purchased this apartment in 1995

This used to be our home, me and my family lived here for years.

We moved few time ago and we want to share our place with foreign people who want to visit Barcelona, enjoy it and benefit of the hug offer it has. It's a nice place, warmly painted and with all our original paintings and art pieces, which provides a very cool and warm atmosphere.

The apartment is located between Sagrada Familia and Sant Pau Hospital. Both of them are Modernism masterpieces. The metro is at only one block and directs you to the center in few minutes, but the best option is walk the Eixample streets where every corner hides a surprise. The Av. Gaudí, the street that runs from Sant Pau Hospital to Sagrada Familia, is a very nice pedestrian promenade plenty of good restaurants and stores.

We were so glad that this home was our choice after reviewing many listings/possibilities online prior to our trip. Mar provided excellent pre-travel information via email. Xavier collected us at the airport with charm and good cheer (and a big sign!). The location of the apartment was ideal for us (husband, wife, daughter, mother/MIL---age span 24-80+). The metro is 1/2 block away and easy to negotiate. Grocery and bakery just around the corner. Sagrada Familia easily within walking distance.

As for the lodging, it was splendid! Spotlessly clean. Kitchen is amazingly well-appointed. Bedrooms are nicely removed from living/kitchen/dining areas. Two bathrooms, laundry facilities, THREE coffee brewing choices!

Restaurants within walking distance that we visited: Sibar (very good), Firo Tast (excellent). We would return to this lovely home without hesitation, and would feel very comfortable recommending it to others. Many thanks, Mar and Xavier!

Comfortable, well-located apartment in Barcelona

My husband, 2-year-old daughter, and I just returned from our 8-day stay in Barcelona at this lovely apartment owned by Mar and Xavier. We were very pleased to discover that it looked even better in person than in the photos. Everything was incredibly clean and spacious. We were greeted by a very cheery and friendly Xavier who showed us all of the conveniences- everything you could possibly need, including a market cart and cooking supplies- spices, olive oil, etc. We ended up spending a couple of meals in, especially breakfasts, which is a great way to be leisurely (especially with a toddler) and more cost-effective. There is also a full entertainment setup, including a large number of DVDs that come in English-language version. The wi-fi was great, though sometimes unreliable.

The apartment is located on the 2nd floor, which is really more like the 3rd floor (because of the planta baja), so you are elevated off the road. While the intersection can be a bit noisy, the bedrooms are located towards the back of the building, so there isn't any road noise at night- just your typical apartment-living sounds. The bedrooms have no exterior windows, so you get a total blackout effect, which can be good and/or disorienting for jet lag.

The metro is just one block away, and there's elevator access throughout which is very helpful when navigating a stroller. Av. Gaudi is also just about 4 blocks away, so we were able to visit a more touristy area, without going too far and minus the noisy bustle of the downtown area. We enjoyed shopping at all the surrounding jamonerias, fruterias, etc. We also took advantage of the little playgrounds located around Sagrada Familia- again, a must for getting out a toddler's pent-up energy.

We would highly recommend this place to others and hope we might have the opportunity to stay again in the future. Thank you, Mar and Xavier, for everything!

Relaxing home away from home....

My husband and I just returned from a wonderful week in beautiful Barcelona, made all the more perfect by our stay in Mar and Xavier's clean, comfortable apartment. Everything was exactly as advertised, and even more than the spotless, well maintained accomodations (with very comfortable bed, a very important point with our middle aged backs!) was the open and welcoming attitude of these lovely owners. No question was too small for Mar to answer, and Xavier even drove us back to the airport (for a nominal fee, less than a cab) at the end of our stay. As VRBO owners ourselves, we appreciate the attention to detail this couple gave to the instruction booklet for the apartment, and helpful hints for nearby restaurants. The metro was just one block away, and though it was a bit away from the tourist hub of the city, we welcomed the quiet of the neighborhood, after a long day of touring. Barcelona is a vibrant, charming city filled with gorgeous Art Nouveau architecture, and our holiday stay was made all the better by this comfortable apartment. Thank you again, Mar and Xavier, for making our week such a successful experience!

Ideal apartment, charming hosts

We had a wonderful time in Barcelona celebrating my 77th birthday, and the accommodation really added to the overall happy occasion.
Mar was very efficient during the booking process and answered all our queries, however trivial, promptly and helpfully. Whilst we were there she sent us an email to let us know that the clocks were going back an hour that night. We were met by Xavier, who showed us round and made us feel really welcome-nothing was too much trouble for him, even to showing us how the dvd worked.
The apartment itself was one of the best equipped and decorated we have used-and we have been self-catering in Europe for 30 years. It was a real home-from-home, even down to the shopping basket on wheels for the trip to the very local supermarket! the bed was very comfortable, and the two bathrooms modern, clean with hot water at all times.
We used the bus all the time for sightseeing-it's possible to get all round the city from the nearby bus stop-we went to the centre, to Montjuic(wonderful museum of medieval art), the beach, El Born, the football stadium and El Pedrera.
The experience was rounded off when Xavier arranged transport to the airport at a much cheaper cost than the taxi in-we shall definitely go back.

This apartment is truly a "Home Away from Home". The apartment was everything we hoped it would be.
The apartment is clean comfortable and well maintained. The kitchen is spacious and has everything we could possible need for cooking our meals.
The apartment is located in a safe neighborhood, we walked at night and felt safe.
Javier and Mar, the owners, were excellent hosts, they helped us with detailed information for all the nearby attractions, restaurants, shops, supermarket, Metro, etc., also helped us plan Day Trips and so much more. They made our stay very enjoyable.

We stayed for two weeks and the morning of our departure Javier was there to help us with our luggage and gave directions to the taxi driver to our destination.
Javier and Mar, thank you for making our stay in Barcelona a memorable one.

We do recommend this property to anyone vacationing in Barcelona.

Example is famous for being home to the majority of Barcelona's art nouveau masterpieces, and a high-class residential and shopping area.

The right side of the Example is the older and therefore has more of the impressive architecture.

Example is a safe and residential part of the city but there is also a vibrant nightlife and a thriving café culture. Example is a beautiful 'barrio' to wander round, take in the glorious architecture and people-watch from one of the many terrace cafes.

The right area of the Eixample was the first and is full of fabulous modernist works such as Gaudi's Casa Batllo, Casa Amatller (Puig i Cadafalch) and Lleó Morera by Domenech i Muntaner well known as the Block of Discord .....

The main example of mass creativity of Gaudi is the Sagrada Familia, still under construction and probably will remain for a long period of time ... is full of symbolism and meaning. This stunning creation never disappoints, as visitors to Barcelona are dazzled by its beauty again and again ...

Another building that also deserves mention is the Hospital de Sant Pau, which is being refurbished and recovered for the citizenship, and is probably the most complex example of modernist architecture ...

The Eixample dreta is full of museums such as the Fundació Antoni Tapies, the Egyptian Museum of Barcelona and the Fundació Francisco Goddia; You can't be disappointed with the neighborhood offer.
