About Ana Hernanz

I was born in Ibiza and went to Barcelona to study translation and interpreting. I immediately fell in love with the city: its architecture, the beach, the whole myriad of cafes and nice little squares at barrio gótico... and Gaudi all over the place. Although I now work and live most of the time in Berlin, I still feel Barcelona as my home. My apartment there and its terrace are one of my favorite spots on earth.

Ana Hernanz purchased this apartment in 2005

Why Ana Hernanz chose Eixample

The apartment is perfectly located to explore the city from there and still not feel overwhelmed by its quick pace and noisy streets when you are at home. It is an attic, located on the sixth floor in a quiet street, so you can quietly have breakfast or dinner on the terrace. At night, you look directly on the beautiful Tibidabo church, all lit up. During the day, you are just eight blocks away from Paseo de Gracia or Rambla Catalunya (Barcelona's high streets and Gaudi's most famous buildings) and it takes only 15 minutes to walk to the Ramblas. By tube it is two stops: just 5 minutes.

The apartment is full of light and sun. I enjoy every single day I spend there.

What makes this apartment unique

I like having a cup of tea or a glas of wine lying on the sofa on the terrace, looking at the seagulls fly by, watching the roofs and the changing sunlight as the day comes to an end. I the morning you can watch the sunrise from bed. The terrace is my absolutely favorite spot in the apartment and the reason why I bought it, together with its central location.

Artful home in Barcelona

  • 5 of 5

We could live in this apartment permanently! The bed was the most comfortable of all the apartments we stayed in, the kitchen was well stocked with all the tools needed for cooking, and the bathroom had plenty of shelf space for all our toiletries. The views out the front and back of the apartment were amazing. Food shopping is very close, and the airport bus is a short walk. Ana and Lee made sure we had all we needed for our stay. We would come back to this apartment on a return trip to Barcelona.

Lovely Apartment in Barcelona!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed five nights and thoroughly enjoyed the apartment. We were met immediately on arrival by Lee. He gave us orientation and tips for our stay. The apartment is lovely - spacious, updated, super clean, all necessities, and beautiful outdoor terrace. We ate out on the terrace a few times and loved it. The apartment is located in a residential area off the main tourist track, which for us was perfect. Lots of restaurants and tabernas in the area. Plus supermarket close by. Subway easy reach. Walking distance to las ramblas area, maybe 20 minutes. Overall, would highly recommend this apartment. Had a great stay!

Great 1 bedroom Apartment; nearby many tourist attractions; safe neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for four nights. In a non-tourist neighborhood but within walking distance to many tourist attractions and beaches. Very close to the subway. Close to grocery stores as well which is nice for preparing breakfast and having coffee on the terrace. The terrace off of the bedroom was our favourite part of the apartment. Beautiful view, nice and cozy. Would recommend this to a couple or even a couple of friends. We were provided with a list of tourist spots and Ana's favourite local spots-which included restaurants, parks, and beaches. This list helped us so much and everywhere Ana recommended was great!

Excellent apartment

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here with my sister for four nights and we really enjoyed our stay. Ana was very pleasant and efficient to deal with and my security deposit was returned promptly within a day of leaving. The apartment was clean and light, air conditioning worked well and everything that might be needed during our stay was there. The balcony was gorgeous to sit out and relax on and caught the sun for the morning and early afternoon. The are felt safe and there are loads of nearby cafes to choose from. I would definitely recommend this apartment!

If you are looking for a place in a quiet neighborhood yet walks away from main attractions..

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough kind words about this flat and also about its owner Ana. I had sooo many questions and concerns before even paying her and she was so friendly and cordial. Such a huge help since it was our first time to Spain. We will definitely be back to this wonderful and amazing city and will no doubt stay here. We don't tend to like super touristy spots so her place was in the perfect location.. although you can definitely have a nice brisk walk anywhere in the city..
