Overview

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

About Philippe Bareilles

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!

Why Philippe Bareilles chose Centro - Plaza Catalunya

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.

What makes this apartment unique

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

Central Barcelona with a view.

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I stayed in this rooftop apartment for 4 days to start our tour through Spain. It was exactly as described in the website, centrally located on one of the main streets in Barcelona, but just far enough off the busy Ramblas to be quiet at night. Getting there from the airport was extremely easy, just take the Aerobus to Placa de Catalunya ($5.8 Euros) and walk two and a half blocks (5 minutes) up Rambla de Catalunya to get there. The Casa Batllo is literally around the corner as is access to multiple metro stops. Philippe was very accommodating to our schedule and made the reservation easy. The apartment is small but just fine for two people. The roof top deck is very large and gives a great view of the street scape below. The bed was just okay, sort of a futon style mattress, so we ended up with a few kinks in our backs but certainly passable. The apartment had a small kitchenette and a washing machine. The drying rack was a bit small but was easy to use located just out of the bathroom window. The WiFi was very reliable but the elevator sometimes had a problem. On check out it was down for repair so we had to carry our luggage down 5 flights of stairs. On another day someone didn't fully close the door so it got hung up on the 4th floor and couldn't be used until we climbed the four flights and closed the doors properly. In the end, we highly recommend this apartment for your stay in Barcelona.

Great location and rooftop view

  • 5 of 5
Just right for a stay for two. Location couldn't be better - only a few blocks from Plaza CatLunya and the Ramblas, but very quiet. Old style elevator takes you almost to the top, but there is one small flight of stairs to climb. Washing machine and small kitchen make this a much better choice than a hotel.

Fabulous Location

  • 4 of 5
We spent a week at Philippe's apartment. The apt. is exactly as pictured. It is small but very well layed out. There is lots of storage for luggage and clothing. The apt. was very clean. We enjoyed sitting on the large terrace with our coffee in the morning. The location can't be beat. Take the elevator downstairs and you are right on the Ramblas. There is a bakery directly across the street where you can purchase your morning pastries. The large grocery store in the bottom of El Cortes Ingles is a short walk away. Around the corner there are a couple of small grocery stores where you can buy wine, water etc. There are a multitude of restaurants, cafe's and bars wthin walking distance.
While we had no issues with the bathroom it should be noted that there is a step up to the shower and toilet. The shower is quite small and would be a challenge for a large person. The lift does take you up to the Attico level but there are stairs to climb to the apt. Once again not a problem for us but may be a challenge with people with mobility issues.
Philiipe is an excellent host. He responds to questions almost immediately. I would recommend this property to a couple who want to explore Barcelona.

Penthouse 5 min from Pl. Catalunya, centre Barcelona

  • 5 of 5
We (47 and 43) stayed here for 8 days. It's a small but good apartment which incl. a small but complete kitchen and even a washing maschine (which we didn`t use). A nice old elevator is in the building and so only a few last stairs to go to reach the roof where the apartment is. Matrasses were absolutely OK (I had no back problems though I`ve a back injury, but it`s of course not a boxspring matras..). No noice heard in the apartment in the night.

It`s a very good location to visit Barcelona, 5 minutes walk from Pl. Catalunya which is the centre of Barcelona and which also has an areobus stop to and from the airport. Just in front of the building a nice 24 hrs bakery, 50 meters around the corner a small supermarket.

Life in Barcelona is outside (the time we wre here: end of Sept. is perfect), the terrace is huge and have great chairs to lay down. It's only for you! Perfect to e.g. have breakfast, have a first coffee in the morning, rest in the afternoon, sun bathing or drink a glas of beer/ wine late evening when you come back and want to enjoy the evening before sleeping.
For food (also breakfast -), you can choose simply one of the restaurants (in all price classes) direct in the neighbourhood or e.g. you walk 10 minutes to a restaurant in the Gothik area (beautiful small ancient streets in the heart of the centre).
Small remark: regularly cleaning of the apartment is not offered/included, but you can request Philippe to arrange it and for a small amount more this is possible. But that's really the only point I have.
We enjoyed staying there and with no doubt I recommend it and therefor give it 5 stars. A next time I`ll try to book this apartment again as I like this much more than a hotel. By the way it`s even much cheaper if you compare it to the same quality (4*) level of hotels offered in Barcelona.

Penthouse with Terrace on Rambla Catalunya

  • 5 of 5
This apartment was practically perfect for us - and the flaw lay with ME, and not with the apartment. The apartment was exactly as advertised, right down to the contents of the cupboards. The terrace overlooks La Rambla Catalunya, and is diagonally across from the back side of the "block of discord". Restaurants, coffee places and shops abound within EASY walking distance.
The owner is in a word - TERRIFIC. This is the kind of landlord one can only wish one always has. Apparently, the air conditioner failed on the day we arrived. Not only was he extremely apologetic but also energetic in seeking mitigations and solutions for the situation (which was finally resolved by the purchase of a new A/C unit) and also 'made it right' with us for our inconvenience.

The only "downside" of this apartment is for the mobility impaired (which I am) - there are 4 short flights of less than standard height steps from the top of the elevator to the apartment terrace. Luggage has to go up these steps also - fortunately there was help from the apartment manager on the way up. For the trip down, it helps to have a strong and inventive spouse. Also, the toilet and shower are a big step up from the bathroom. That being said - I'd much rather do the steps than not stay here. We're booking again for next year.
