PASSEIG DE GRACIA -LAST MINUTE OFFER 99 E PN

Centro - Plaza Catalunya Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartment, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

PASSEIG DE GRACIA - THE MOST EXCLUSIVE AVENUE IN THE HEART OF THE CITY.

THE ABSOLUTE BEST LOCATION POSSIBLE IN BARCELONA.

A wonderful, spacious, open plan Studio loft with 24 hour wifi connection if you bring your laptop. The absolute best location possible. You cannot be more centrally located. Passeig de Gracia is the most upmarket avenue of Barcelona with the best shops and Gaudi buildings = Casa Batllo and La pedrera are in the same avenue. Being on the corner of Plaza Catalunya, puts you in the heart of the city with the best public transport connections, the airport shuttle bus and of course, most things of interest within walking distance.

This is a wonderful gem in every way: Excellent large Studio Loft with oodles of character within an extremely elegant turn of the century modernista building, AND, with the best location possible - PASSEIG DE GRACIA/PASEO DE GRACIA.

Just look at a map and you can see immediately that an apartment on PASSEIG DE GRACIA, seconds from the famous LAS RAMBLAS is a real find! This is THE address in Barclona. The Studio Loft is part of a beautiful grand building as one would expect from the location, PASSEIG DE GRACIA - THE ADDRESS IN BARCELONA.

You enter into a wonderful marble hall with elaborate wrought iron work, stained glass and an extremely elegant staircase. You can see immediately that this is a very fine building indeed. There are two glass lifts/elevators up to the fifth floor where the spacious, very high ceilinged, Studio Loft is located in the 'Mansard' - excellent views.

As you enter you immediately notice the space of this very stylish Studio Loft with enormously high wooden cathedral style ceilings - I could easily add another floor but like the feel and character of this home as it is.

The bathroom is also spacious and is all white, marble and clean with bathtub, shower, bidet etc etc.

The kitchen area has all that is needed for a very comfortable stay - naturally all crockery, cutlery etc is provided.

Here you will find an oven, burners, toaster,coffee makers, electric kettle, microwave, fridge, washing machine etc etc. the living area is very comfortable and cosy and naturally fully furnished with armchair, sofas, bookshelves, TV, music centre, cupboard space, dining table and chairs. The sleeping area has a Queen size bed and ample wardrobe space.

Naturally it is fully air conditioned and heated. What more can I say??This is truly an exceptional property in the absolute best position possible in town!! I consider this to be of very good value.

Just seconds from Plaza Catalunya and therefore a two minute walk to the famous Las Ramblas and the Gothic Quarter. PASSEIG DE GRACIA of course has the famous Gaudi buildings, Casa Batllo and La Pedrera PLUS all the best shops in town!! All within literally minutes of the Studio. The Location could not be bettered.

To cover some basics - Yes, all linen, towels, cutlery, crockery etc are provided. .

The supermarket is located just a minute away and is open till 1000pm nightly (except Sundays). I shall be pleased to answer any questions you may have regarding your stay in this lovely mediterranean city and happy to welcome you to this super Studio Loft.

AVAILABLE ONLY FOR 1 OR 2 RESPONSIBLE ADULTS OR A RESPONSIBLE FAMILY. This is not a party place!

Guestbook comments from the owner
Hello Derek,

Just wanted to say we did very much enjoy your apartment. It is in the perfect location and a very beautiful place. Thank you for the warm welcome of wine, flowers and snacks, too. Every morning we played some of your Spanish guitar CD's and having the travel and library books available was very helpful and homey. (I partially read a Paul Theroux book you have and will go to my public library to check it out when I get home.)

Thanks for your part in our great memories of Barcelona!

Sincerely,

Brenda & Gerry

Hello, I am Derek, a freelance European Tour Director and a Londoner.

The Owner purchased this apartment in 1998

This is an easy question! I chose to live on Passeig de Gracia as it is 'THE' address in Barcelona. Passeig de Gracia is the most elegant and most central avenue of the city. Having lived for two years on Passeig de Gracia, loving every minute of the sheer ease of living within walking distance of everything and being in the heart of such a wonderful city, I decided to buy another apartment, this lovely studio loft in 1998. My original home on Passeig de Gracia is listing 11323 which is also on VRBO. This studio had everything I wanted: The right location, a beautiful period building, unusual ceiling features and a magnificent view of the city.

I often stay at this flat when in Barcelona. This is in the middle of everything - a perfect location. Diagonally opposite is Barcelona's main department store with an extremely well stocked supermarket with wet fish counter, butcher , greengrocer and fruiterer - all the best products opposite my studio loft. Arrival and departure is also fantastically easy, I feel spoilt! The Airbus to the airport departs and arrives just outside El Corte Ingles, the above mentioned department store - in other words, opposite the flat.

The new Apple store is just next door.

When staying here, I very rarely use transport of any kind as I can walk everywhere. In the summer months, the beach is just a 10 minute(if that) metro ride away.

ESPECTACULAR!

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I just returned home after spending 4 nights in this spectacular studio apartment perfectly located on Paseo De Gracia in Eixample; hands down, the nicest neighbourhood in Barcelona. The apartment, for a studio, is spacious and tastefully decorated. It is on the top floor of a beautiful building with two elevators. There is a concierge in the building. The location is both far away and close enough to the busy tourist areas. It is a stone's throw from Placa Catalunya which is the final stop of the Aerobus service from the airport. For 5.90 Euros you are dropped off steps away from the apartment. Derek was prompt and responsive to all of our communications and Lana was there to greet us and to give us the lay of the land. We were also greeted with a bottle of wine, a bottle of water, milk, cookies, olives, and great coffee. Well done Derek y muchas gracias!

PERFECT LOCATION FOR ALL ACTIVITIES

  • 4 of 5
We have been visiting Barcelona every year for at least 25 years and used to vary where we stayed each time - until we discovered Derek's apartment about 6 years ago.Its greatest asset as far as we are concerned is its perfect location for the city's attractions and restaurants and the easy access to the beach directly by bus in barely 15 minutes. The vibrant Passeig de Gracia is a pleasure to walk in and ideal for shopping. The apartment lives entirely up to its description and we are perfectly satisfied with its convenience and comforts. We intend to carry on staying there every future year indefinitely!!

DESTINATION BARCELONA - THE PLACE TO BE

  • 5 of 5
We had the pleasure of recently spending 9 days in Derek's comfortable, very well-appointed apartment on the 5th floor of an elegant building on the Passeig de Gracia in the heart of Barcelona. The location could not be better for easy access to everything Barcelona has to offer, whether by foot or by public transport (including the great bus service to/from the airport). Through our correspondence we found Derek to be a very responsive, professional host, and his local representative in Barcelona, Lana, to be friendly and helpful. If there was one downside to our stay it was being disturbed in the small hours every morning by the garbage collection and street-cleaning vehicles. However, being in the centre of the city we understand that these disturbances are probably inevitable.

EXCELLENT!

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I recently spent three nights here. We highly recommend it! It is a very comfortable apartment in a perfect location. In addition, all transactions were handled in a very professional and efficient manner. We left a lot unseen in Barcelona and if we are lucky enough to return for more fun we will certainly check on the availability of this space.

We totally loved our visit to Barcelona over Christmas and your lovely flat. We were very comfortable there and loved the location. It made it really easy to get around to the areas we wanted to spend time in. I also appreciated that the building felt very secure. Thanks for sharing your lovely place with us!
