About the property

Licence number: HUTB-001628

A lovely studio apartment in the vibrant Plaza Real which is considered one of the best known squares in Barcelona and a popular tourist attraction.

Only steps away from Las Ramblas and a gentle stroll to the Port, it is ideally situated for sightseeing. There are many outdoor restaurants and bars in the plaza where you can enjoy some Catalan cuisine.

The apartment:

Stylish and elegantly decorated studio apartment, ideal for a couple, a small group of friends or family (please note, the elevator stops between 2 floors, so you will have to go up or down one short flight of stairs). The open-plan loft style creates a relaxing ambiance where you can plan excursions or simply sit back and relax after a day visiting all of the treasures of Barcelona.

There are two comfortable sofas, one of which converts into a double bed for the 3rd and 4th guest. The dining table and matching chairs can easily accommodate everyone for a home cooked meal made with freshly bought produce from the nearby Boqueria market.

The double bed is set apart from the main living area providing a little more privacy. Wardrobe facilities are available to store your belongings.

The small but fully equipped kitchen provides everything that you might need to make your stay comfortable.

The bathroom comes complete with washbasin, mirror and a quirky design where the toilet and shower share the same space.

If you want to be in the heart of Barcelona, with everything on your doorstep, then this is the apartment for you.Not allowed: Parties, Animals/Pets

This apartment is all about the location!!

  • 4 of 5

Directly on Plaça Reial less than 100 meters from La Rambla. This is a comfortable well appointed apartment. It could stand a little updating but it was very clean and nice.

The good: Location Location Location. It has Air conditioning (see the Bad) I found it to be comfortable and spacious the balconies open to a small street off the Plaça Reial you get nice morning sun.

Linda who met us was very helpful and if you don't have a car (not really needed in Barcelona) have her meet you at the airport so she can show you the area and where the markets are. She offers car service to and from the airport.

The Bad: It is right on Plaça Reial! They truly do party all night here! I had to close the shutters and turn on the AC so we could sleep. Once you shut the apartment it was fine. Be sure you understand the price before committing your money. It is not very clear on the website.

Would I stay here again? If I was in the mood for lot's of night life and the tourist side of Barcelona, then Yes without a doubt.

Sehr zentral gelegen...aber auch Laut!!

  • 3 of 5

Die Wohnung liegt im 3. OG eine Hauses direkt an der Placa Reial. Auch wenn die Fenster zu einer kleinen Seitenstraße führen ist der Lärm vom Treiben auf dem Platz ständig präsent.

Der Platz ist bis in die frühen Morgenstunden belebt. Nachts geöffnete Fenster sind daher kaum bis gar nicht möglich. Zum Glück gibt es eine gut funktionierende und recht leise Klimaanlage. Die Wohnung als solches ist gut geschnitten. Das Bad wurde umgebaut. Die Toilette und Dusche sind nunmehr separat. Das sehr kleine Fenster im Bad ermöglicht leider keinen vernünftigen Luftaustausch. Das Bett war für unsere Vorstellung leider zu klein und zu hart. Nur eine dünne Bettdecke bei 2 Personen ist leider auch zu wenig. Gerade jetzt im Sommer wäre auch ein 2. Handtuch pro Person sehr schön gewesen. Insgesamt sollte der Eigentümer hier einmal ein wenig Geld in die Hand nehmen um kleinere Reparaturen durchzuführen. (Lose angebrachte Handtuchhalter, leicht lose WC Sitz etc) Insgesamt mach die Wohnung einen soliden, aber doch renovierungsbedürftigen Zustand.

Barcelona ist eine Super Tolle Stadt...wir kommen bestimmt wieder....würden uns aber dann doch für eine etwas ruhigere Wohnung entscheiden.
