About the property

bedrooms 2 - Sleeps 3 - Elevators 2 - AC/Heat - washing machine - WIFI

For value, comfort and access to the sights , this is the place, where you can experience the real Barcelona lifestyle. NOTE: all of these descriptions come from guest comments. My English is not good enough to express all of these wonderful thoughts....

It is a gorgeous apartment in the absolute BEST location of Barcelona, on the tree-lined avenue PASSEIG PUJADES, a pleasant, quiet and SAFE residential neighborhood.

Everything that you need is nearby. There are 2 fully stocked grocery stores, restaurants, terrace-cafes, laundry and a pharmacy, on your door step.

It is truly an amazing location and is within walking distance of nearly all the sites, but you can escape the crowds of the OLD CITY with just a short walk.

You can dash around the city all day and into the wee hours of the night and return here to a cozy environment. It is so nice to come home from a day of crowded sightseeing to this “oasis”.

Along the way to the traditional FOOD MARKET “Santa Caterina” - an excellent place to go for gourmet shopping- you can stop in one of the terrace cafes and in few minutes you get in the medieval neighborhood EL BORN.

The BEACHES and LA RAMBLA is a 15 min. walk

The APARTMENT is immaculately CLEAN, well-equipped and is exactly as shown in the photos.

DOUBLE BEDROOM with two European twin beds (3” wider than US twin and 6’7” long) are almost like a double bed and as long as a king size bed and very comfortable. Baby cot on request.

SINGLE BEDROOM and a fold-up bed can be extra placed if requested.

LIVING/DININGROOM: TV Satellite, CD, WiFi internet connection, Books (in English). It has a big MAP of Barcelona on the wall with all the sites shown.

KITCHEN: Refrigerator, freezer, electric cooker, microwave, coffee maker, toaster, juicer, kettle, washing machine, ironing equipment.

BATHROOM. with shower, hair dryer, TOWELS provided

You´ll see I have a reputation for service and assitance beyond expectation.I WILL MEET YOU ON ARRIVAL

Guests are further reassured that I AM ON HAND all time for any help, that would make your stay even more enjoyable.

Reading the REVIEWS made by previous guests might also help you decide and find out more from a traveler`s perspective.



Dolores' apartment was the perfect accommodation for our family as we took three days in Barcelona prior to our Mediterranean cruise. We found the place to be very clean and comfortable, which allowed us to quickly recover from our "red-eye" flight from the US. Dolores is the perfect host, welcoming and briefing us on all the essentials for local shops and dining, as well as how to navigate the excellent public transit system. She gave us great advice and direction to see the many wonderful features of Barcelona. We were very happy with the location, several public transit options within a block, and the Parc Ciutadella just across the street. Breakfast on the terrace was a delight..

The apartment was exactly as shown in the photos, well laid out and very clean.

At first I thought having single beds would be too small but they are almost like a double bed and as long as a king size bed and very comfortable.

We enjoyed the coffee and cakes that Dolores left us upon our arrival out on the lovely balcony overlooking the park across the street. There is a fully stocked grocery store around the corner which helped as.

Dolores was very helpful and not only had a ton of brochures but also a map on the wall with all the sites shown and how to get to them, she also suggested a few places to dine which we went to and found them all excellent, no disappointments at all.

The apartment and location was perfect and I'd highly recommend staying there while in Barcelona .Bren (Ontario, Canada)


Thank you so much for the use of your wonderful apartment and specially for making it so much like a home away from home.

The coffee, milk, and muffins were also so very much appreciated the morning we woke up!We sat on the balcony and played cards every evening before dinner.

We enjoyed watching the green birds that looked a little like parrots and we think we heard the elephant from the zoo once. While walking down Wellington Street one evening,we saw the lion up behind the fence and it roared at us! It was such a sight! Judy and family - Danville, CA - US


For value, comfort, and access to the sights and sounds of Barcelona, this is the place. Everything you need is here in the apartment. Its central location, opposite a large park, allows for a leisurely walk for relaxation and / or desired services.

But, its strength is its host-Dolores. She is genuinely friendly and committed to seeing that your stay is an enjoyable one. Her numerous suggestions as to what to see and do, and her walking and driving tours, will get you to the "real" Barcelona.BC, Canada

About Dolores Perez

I am Dolores, the owner of the apartment . I was born in Barcelona and I have been living just round the corner from this apartment for 40 years.

I am retired, so I have time to manage the apartment by myself. I take care of my guests personally. I am on hand for any help! I WILL MEET YOU ON ARRIVAL.

Why Dolores Perez chose Sant Marti

I live here because I believe it is one of the best places to stay in Barcelona, close to everything.

The crowds and the noise of the city fade when you are in the apartment, yet you are able to enjoy your breakfast and cocktails on the terrace, gazing at the activities below....joggers, bikers, people enjoying their coffee, it is a fascinating scene.

What makes this apartment unique


Barcelona GEM

This was my third stay in Barcelona and each time I have rented this apartment from Dolores. She is gracious and helpful and will give guidance, if desired, about the attractions, neighborhoods and restaurants of Barcelona.

The apartment is very clean and well appointed with a great kitchen for cooking meals with the food that you purchase in the near by Santa Catarina Market or from the almost nearby Boqueria Market.

The balcony overlooks the beautiful Parc de la Ciutadella and you are short stroll from the old city, but removed from the hustle and bustle. In short, a perfect location.

Metro and bus lines are nearby that connect to all parts of the city and region. It is easy to make day trips to Sitges and Tarragona for example. I highly recommend Dolores and her apartment.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We enjoyed Christmas here in Barcelona. So pretty,magical,relaxed, and even had our favourite Christmas movie "Mujercitas". We loved visiting Santa Maria del Mar Church for midnight services, and the "Magic Fountaine" on Christmas night.

Thank you Dolores, for orienting us so well. This was our first trip to Barcelona and we would all love to return!.

P.S. We "Seattle" folks loved seeing the sun, the beautiful balcony, + living roomto enjoy it.

Barcelona's best lodge

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is perfect for a visit to the beautiful city of Barcelona! Dolores couldn't be a more gracious host and we loved the apartment and the location of the apartment. The apartment is clean, well equipped and in a perfect location. The neighborhood feels very safe and there is easy access to all the sights! Thank you Dolores - I hope I can return for another visit soon! Susan

Amazing stay in Barcelona

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is a real gem. The location is perfect, quiet, yet close enough to walk to many of the wonderful sights Barcelona has to offer. The neighborhood is safe especially for someone traveling alone. This immaculate apartment has two bedrooms, a fully equipped kitchen, wifi, a/c, clothes washer, heat (rarely needed in Barcelona!) and bathroom with shower. Everything you could possibly need is here. You are right across from the park on a main street with a bus stop just steps away. There is a grocery store and pharmacy around the corner. There are restaurants close by but the best part of this apartment is Dolores. She is a wealth of information about the city of Barcelona and will suggest sights and restaurants that will make this trip your most memorable!

Amazing place

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in this lovely place four weeks. I missed nothing in the apartment. A nice balcony with a nice view to the Ciutadella park. I enjoyed the short walks to the Born district.

Dolores showed me a lot interesting places in this aerea.

Hopefully I will come back soon to her apartment.

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had the good fortune to stay here twice, the first time for six nights and then after a week of traveling through Galicia and Asturias, another three nights before we returned to the U.S. This is an amazing apartment, conveniently located to the bus stop, the metro, Parc Cuidadella, a grocery store and several local eateries. The apartment is very spacious, quiet and comfortable with the lift just steps away from the front door. The balcony is a definite plus. We enjoyed coffee and croissants (from the grocery store) every morning listening to the morning sounds of Barcelona. What a treat! Dolores is an amazing hostess and tour guide. She gave us great information and suggestions for enjoying her city and we are very thankful that we took her up on her recommendations. Have pencil and paper ready! We would definitely return to this apartment in Barcelona in the future. Thank you, Dolores, for a great stay in your apartment.

Thank you so much Dolores!

  • 5 of 5

We found this apartment on VRBO after looking at what seemed like an endless number of possible places to stay. At the end of the day the reviews and the balcony picture sold us on this apartment. As it turns out the most awesome part of our stay was Dolores - who took it upon herself to be our personal Barcelona expert and tour guide. Thank you Dolores! We loved Barcelona and getting a chance to get to know you. The apartment is comfortable and is perfectly located so close to many attractions and public transportation (I would avoid having a car in Barcelona personally). We would definitely stay here again!

wonderufl apartment right by the Parc Ciutadella

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed this apt. which was clean and handy to many sites we wanted to see. A lovely balcony overlooks Passeig Pujades and gives a constant view of city life. Delores was so friendly and magnificent in greeting us and giving us many ideas of things to see and how to get around. We did not have a car and used the bus system but mostly just walked to sites and restaurants. A very homey feel. The balcony is a real plus! Quite quiet even though in a busy area.
