Wide and comfortable apartment for 2-3 persons, quite newly, well communicated

It is a bright and comfortable apartment newly renovated, ideal for couples as well as people who visit the city on business. It is equipped with everything necessary to satisfy the comfort of its occupants for short or even longer stays of several weeks.

Located in Sants, an endearing neighborhood, with restaurants, supermarkets and all kinds of shops in the surrounding area. It is near the well-known and animated 'Carretera de Sants' and 'Las Arenas' Mall, a place where one can find fashionable shops, Gastronomy, Leisure and Culture.

Thanks to its privileged location it is conveniently situated with both the Airport and the rest of the city and its surroundings, inasmuch as Sants Main Train Station and three lines of the underground (Metro) are within a radius of less than 200 meters.

You will also be able to enjoy an agreeable walk on Montjuich Mountain, which is only a 5 minute walk (in addition there are mechanical stairs). On it you will find the following points of interest:

Plaza de España - Fuentes Mágicas - National Museum of Art of Catalonia - National Palace (with its magnificent view of the city) - Pueblo Español - Miro Foundation - Caixa Forum - La Fira de Barcelona and the Exhibition and Congress Halls - Ethnological Museum –the German Pavilion of the Universal Exhibition designed by Mies van der Rohe (1929) - Olympic stadium - Palau Sant Jordi - Montjuich Castle providing beautiful views of the Port and of the Mediterranean Sea.

Comfortable apartment, great location, gracious hosts

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at the apartment inMay 2016. It was perfect for the two of us. The apartment has everything you would need for your stay (even a washing machine and dryer) which most places don't have. The hosts left us a basket of goodies as a welcome gift - fruit, milk, juice, cookies, etc - such a nice touch! The location is fabulous (close to three metro stations, the nearest being a two minute walk away). The Sants station is a 5-minute walk away. We had two great meals at Zarautz, literally next door to the apartment. It is in a quiet neighborhood.

Just a note for people with mobility issues: there is a narrow flight of stairs to get up to the apartment.

Would not hesitate to stay here again if our travels brought us to Barcelona! Thank you Constantino, Maria and Paula.

Awesome experience!!

  • 5 of 5

Constantino and his daughter were amazing! They were very helpful by providing suggestions on things to do in Barcelona, places to eat, and generally how to get around the city. The apartment is small but quite comfortable and was perfect for my husband and I. The apartment has everything you need and more. The location was excellent as it was close to three subway stops and the main train station. Thanks for sharing your apartment with us! We will definitely stay here again if we make it back to Barcelona again!

Wonderful apartment in Barcelona!!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed here back in February 2014. The apartment was wonderful and Constantino and his family were great. The location was close to several sights and you could catch the subway at 3 different locations. It was quiet and very safe. Little grocery store a block away and a bigger store about 3 blocks away. Constantino shared lots of information including a place to rent bikes only a couple blocks from the place. We did rent the bikes and rode all over Barcelona. Great way to see the City. Can't say enough about the kindness shown by Paula who met us our first night there. Thanks you. The hosts were wonderful and if we get a chance to go back we will see if the apartment is available. Looking for a great place to stay in a great neighborhood and wonderful hosts then look no further! Thanks Constantino and family!!!

Wonderful stay in Barcelona

  • 5 of 5

Last week in March, we spent a week in Barcelona. The weather was comfortable, the city was beautiful, and the apartment we stayed was well suited for us - convenient (the location was ideal), right size for two, clean and artistically arranged.

The owners are a father-daughter team. The father is an artist. The apartment interior and furnitures were nicely arranged with many innovative ways to best use limited space, reminiscent of IKEA. We don't mean the apartment is small; it's just right for two people if you don't hate each other.

The apartment is just a few minutes walk from the central train station, and metro stations to other parts of the city. Barcelona is actually small enough so that you can even walk from one part of it to another - an alternative for treadmill exercise at home and taking taxi on the street. We found a lot of useful local information on the coffee table, in addition to complimentary fruits and cookies. The owners also told us the best way to use local transportation, which was to get a ticket for 10 or 20 rides.

There is a small cafe on the same street for breakfast, and a few grocers nearby to get fresh fruits. The streets were quiet in the night and morning, so we would wake up naturally and walked to the balcony to experience the spring breeze and watch people walking on the street below.

If we will ever go back to Barcelona, we will stay in this place again.

Perfect stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week in Barcelona! This apartment was off the beaten path enough that we felt more like we lived in Barcelona than like we were in the middle of a tourist trap, which is our preference. Some of the major sight-seeing areas were a decent walk from the apartment, but we did the walk across the city multiple times. The metro stops were super convenient when we just wanted to get somewhere quickly. Upon our arrival, Paula greeted us so warmly and got us acquainted with the surroundings. She helped us get in touch with the airport to locate missing luggage as well. They have a great assortment of maps, as well as a really well-stocked kitchen. They had a bottle of champagne waiting for us when we arrived, as we were on our honeymoon--so thoughtful! We were impressed with the apartment, and felt well taken care of by the owners. We slept well, and were very comfortable. We would most definitely stay here again if we were lucky enough to return to Barcelona!

Great location, cozy apartment!

  • 5 of 5

My parents and I stayed in the apartment for a week in Oct.

The owners were very helpful and made everything quite easy.

The apartment was newly renovated and very clean. Everything was in great condition and we didn't have any issues.

The apartment is quite central which was quite helpful to get everywhere very quickly.

Definitely recommend for 2-3 people.

In one of the most ancient and endearing neighborhoods of the city. To less than 5 minutes walking of the central station of Sants or of the Plaza de España and Montjuic's Mountain. Also to 5 minutes of the new mall 'Las arenas'. Very well communicated with 3 lines of underground and diverse lines of buses, besides all the lines of train both of surroundings and of crossed length and high speed. Very near two of the biggest green spaces of Barcelona: El Parque de la España Industrial and the park Joan Miro.
