Cute and fully refurbished studio at only 10 minutes walking to Plaza Cataluña or to the Ramblas, with great views of Sant Antoni market in the Eixample quarter . The studio is situated on the first floor (principal) of a building without elevator. Since the apartment faces the XIX century market the open views let the sun get through the balcony window in the morning and a pleasant light during the day.
The apartment has recently been refurbished, with high quality and modern but warm materials like microconcret and wooden floors. Fully equipped: full kitchen, dining area for two or four, washing machine, dryer, and a modern and comfortable bath-room. All details have been carefully chosen.
Sant Antoni neighborhood is a typical area where you can experience the real Barcelona life with a lot of places to eat “tapas” (especially at the new Ferran Adrià’s bar, only four blocks away), to have a good dinner or to drink a wonderful Spanish wine. This is not a tourist area (yet) prices are not crazy, the bakeries offer real bread and the hidden tapas bar are not fashioned or tricky. They have been here always. It's one of our local treasures.
We encourage guests to experience Ferran Adrià food performances. Try to make your own tapas in the small but well equipped kitchen. There is a temporary market just one block away, while St. Antoni market is being refurbished. There you can get all kind of fresh food or delicatessen items in the shops around the apartment. You'll get an extensive list of amazing places near it.
Furthermore, the location allows you to walk almost everywhere. Reach easily the city center from Plaça Catalunya and visit all the Gaudi's musts. Walk through the Raval and get to the Ramblas and Boqueria market. Walk through the theater district, Paral·lel, to the harbour and the marina promenade. Or walk up Montjuïc in a whole day of awesome museums and gardens.
Keywords: Studio, one room, one modern bathroom, close to the city center, safe neighborhood.

About Mar Mellado
I'm from Barcelona and I love this city. I have always lived here. One of my favorite hobbies is photography. I have a group of friends with the same interest and we usually go with our cameras to take pictures of our city; we discover every time new places unseen or despite we repeat places or neighborhoods we always find a new look of them.
Mar Mellado purchased this Studio in 2010
Why Mar Mellado chose Sant Antoni
I am a Barcelonian, I like this city very much and this part of the Eixample, the Sant Antoni neighborhood, is special because is a very local place just at 10 minutes walking from the center. The best tapas bar's are located in it, some of them at 2 or 4 blocks from the apartment. It's a very alive neighborhood with good restaurants, special and nice bars and wine shops where you'll enjoy as if you were a true Barcelonian. The ancient market, fromt the XIX Century is a nice architectonical piece just at a glance.
What makes this Studio unique
Is a new and comfortable place, carefully refurbished. It is quiet, nice and has all the amenities you could need. The neighborhood is full of interesting places to visit like the sunday old books market, restaurants, typical bars, tapas bars, theaters... The old city is only at 10 minuts by foot where there are the most interesting monuments and museums. You can be a 'barcelonian' for some days spending time at the studio. It is located in a not 'turisty' place but at only few minutes walking for everything you can see in this city. I love the place and I'm sure our guests will enjoy it!

A perfect pied a terre in Barcelona
This rating is based on the quality of the accommodations and the ease of dealing with the owners. As other reviews have noted, these are some stellar owner/managers to deal with. The neighborhood is less touristy than many (for now), with plenty of shopping and eating options. What was unpleasant during my stay, but completely out of the hands of the owners, was the closed streets, noise and filth of the construction of the Sant Antoni market. But that will be done by June 1, and its opening will make this place even more lovely!!
Excellent location. Very tastefully decorated.
We love the neighborhoods and the city for the short time were there.

Hi Loretta & Attila,
You can spend some more time here, you'll be very welcome!!!!
All the best
Clean, cozy and convenient!
This was a perfect, cozy studio apartment for my son and I. It was in a great location, very clean, and the bed was extremely comfortable! We took the airport bus to the 2nd stop and walked 3 blocks to the apartment! The metro is close by, as are many delicious bakeries and restaurants! Mar was a wonderful hostess and left us some treats! She has put together a book full of suggestions for her guests. There is a washer and dryer as well!

At the moment there is construction going on outside the apartment from 8am-8pm, but it didn’t disturb our stay! I was impressed with how much work they completed every day!
Thanks to you Maureen!!
My pleasure hosting you and your son!
A perfect place to stay in Barcelona!
Mar's apartment is the perfect place to stay in Barcelona. It is well located for the metro, and the neighborhood is full of places to have tapas and bakeries. We loved the small balcony overlooking the street and comfortable, clean apartment. Mar was essential help in locating our lost baggage and following up to be sure we received it. We would definitely stay there again and highly recommend her apartment! Nancy Tyler, Texas
Lovely apartment in a vibrant, convenient neighborhood. Close to the subway and airport bus. Great restaurants, bakeries, cafes and markets are all at your fingertips, yet the apartment is a quiet oasis after a busy day exploring this extraordinary city. A perfect space for two and we really appreciated the booklet provided with recommendations for the area. Much more of a local neighborhood than some of the touristic areas of town. We would definitely stay here again.
Wonderful and Comfortable stay in Barcelona
We enjoyed a lovely stay at this apartment and would highly recommend it to travellers to Barcelona. The owner was very organized and prepared us very well to feel comfortable and informed about how to use all of the amenities in the apartment and about the local area. We found the apartment to be a lovely oasis to return to at the end of a busy day of sightseeing. The apartment was nicely situated for those who wish to walk or take the Metro to explore the city. The bed is comfortable, the availability of closets helped us get settled and the space was ideal for us as a couple. We really appreciated the convenience of having access to a washer and dryer in the apartment, which both worked very well. The apartment was clean and secure. Again, we would definitely recommend this apartment to other travellers coming to visit Barcelona and will stay again on our next trip.
Our sincere thanks to our great host.
