PENTHOUSE WITH TERRASSE IN CENTRAL EXCLUSIVE RAMBLA CATALUNYA

Centro - Plaza Catalunya Apartment Rental Photos and Description

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

Studio apartment only two minutes from Plaza Catalunya in the heart of Barcelona. The apartment is located in the famous Rambla de Catalunya, one of the most famous streets in Barcelona where you will find the beautiful 'Casa Batlló' and the 'Pedrera' of the famous architect Antonio Gaudí, lined with shops, restaurants and café´s. This quiet and cosy apartment is located on the penthouse floor of a 19th century classic building with a concierge. The studio apartment has a small fully equipped kitchen with a two ring hob, fridge, washing machine and cutlery, pots and pans. The bedroom/living room has a double bed, cable t-v and free internet via WIFI. The studio opens to a very large sun terrace with table, deck chairs and umbrella.

Barcelona’s extensive Eixample district brings together a large number of modernista buildings of great architectural value. However, it is the central part which showcases most of the buildings designed in this style. Known as the Quadrat d’Or (Golden Square), it is the place where Barcelona’s moneyed classes came to live in the flats designed by the leading architects of the day, such as Gaudí. You will find something to suit every taste in this area, design and fashion shops, relaxing parks and a range of bars and cafes to have your morning coffee in. There are also a good number of restaurants, bars and discos for those looking for some nightlife Barcelona is so famous for. The majority of these are around the streets, Londres, Paris and Muntaner. It can be difficult to resist the temptation to stop and try out some the local pastries & coffees, drinks & tapas or have dinner in some of the most fashionable restaurants in Barcelona. Towards the bottom of L´Eixample it meets with Plaza Catalunya and the beginning of the Gothic Quarter.

I have also another condo at the same address: www.vrbo.com/404805

Hello, I am born in 1954, I speak english, spanish and french. I was before in the movie business and studied production at NYU in 1980-1983, and since 2005 I dedicate myself to tourism. It is much quieter!

This property and www.vrbo.com/404805 are both the best location Barcelona can offer: the best place in the world. Sea, mountains and countryside in few minutes drive.

This penthouse is right in the center heart of the city and has a huge deck and it is very calm and quiet.

It is officially registered at Generalitat Turisme under: HUTB 003300

COZY AND QUIET

  • 5 of 5
Lovely place in a great location. The apartment is small, but it is a model of efficiency and offers everything that a couple may need. It is clean, quiet and very comfortable for a relaxing time. We loved all the restaurants below and the bakery across the street. Would definitely rent again!

FANTASTIC TERRACE AND GREAT LOCATION!

  • 5 of 5
Perfect location a couple blocks from Placa Catalunya on the quiet side of the plaza. Apartment was well laid out and modern. The best part was the huge terrace with the beautiful view. Bed was comfortable and the room was very quiet. Bathroom was a good size. Apartment was within walking distance of many restaurants, shops and metro. Also 5 minute walk from the airport bus stop. Internet worked well. Had a very enjoyable time and would stay here again.

PERFECT SPOT TO STAY

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in this apartment for 8 days. it was clean, nice to have the penthouse terrace for views, coffee, etc. No better location could be imagined. It is just away from the Placa de Catalunya, on the leafy Ramblya de Catalunya. Kitchen is well-furnished and the bedroom part of the studio was very nice. Ample closet and drawer space. I highly recommend this apartment!

GREAT LOCATION - NICE APARTMENT

  • 5 of 5
We very much enjoyed our stay here. A word about size: the photos make the property look slightly larger than it is...but it was plenty of room for the two of us and the photos of the private terrace make the terrace much smaller than it actually is...the terrace is huge! The unit was well-appointed, we were given a comprehensive orientation by a member of the staff and truly enjoyed being so close to the action of the Ramblas.

Please note: Although there is an elevator, getting to the unit requires walking up a short flight of stairs in the lobby and a longer set of stairs to get to the top level where the unit is. I am 70 years old and this posed no problem at all. Older folks and those with disabilities will want to factor this in.

To sum up: great location, really bright and comfortable space and close to the action of the Ramblas and it's very quiet at night.

GREAT CENTER CITY LOCATION, GOOD VALUE AND NICE AMENITIES!

  • 4 of 5
We spent a week in the flat for our first trip to Barcelona. We selected it based on previous reviews on this site, and were not disappointed. it was accurately represented. By most American standards, it is small, but well laid out, and has all the amenities needed to make your stay comfortable: closet space, nice bathroom, comfortable bed, sitting area, and kitchenette.

It is in a GREAT location, and the information provided by the owner regarding the property was very helpful. We walked to everything (granted, we like to walk), and did not the feel for ANY need for additional transportation. It's a 5 minute walk from the airport bus drop-off, and surrounded by restaurants, cafes, markets, and all types of shopping.

The kitchenette was very handy for morning coffee and evening snacks, especially the delicious cheeses and Spanish wines available so cheaply. Washer allowed us to pack a bit lighter, also handy.

Being at the 'penthouse' level, the flat is very quiet, with no street noise evident. Being winter time, we could not take full advantage of the wonderful rooftop terrace, but it is very large and would make a great place to enjoy the fresh air.

Our only hiccup was a mixup on our arrival time, which was quickly resolved by the owner, and caused us only a half hour delay. The lesson learned is to re-check the expected arrival times/dates before the day of arrival.

Probably typical of Europe, there are some high doorway thresholds to step over, steps, etc, so those with disabilities would not navigate with ease.

The true test is "would you stay there again?" and the answer is definitely YES !!
