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 L'Esquerra de l'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.

Lovely in BCN

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Ana's lovely flat for a week at the end of May and loved it. Sparkling clean, super comfy bed, terrace is just the right size for two with a sun umbrella & good seating. Airport bus is about 2 blocks away, very convenient. Residential area with several bars & restaurants literally on/around the corner, grocery across the street. WiFi is blazing fast, plenty of hot water in the chic bathroom from the rainshower fixture, lots of windows for cool breezes and air conditioning too. It's on the top floor and yes there is a lift! Maybe about 10 steps to get up to the lift. Very nice to have a washing machine in the flat.

Ana is very professional, quick to communicate, answered all our questions. Truly a home away from home - highly recommended for single or couple. Thank you Ana!

Stunning attic apartment with rooftop patio in Eixample

  • 5 of 5

This 1-bedroom apartment was in the attic of 6-floor building (with elevator!) on charming side street in Eixample district. Apartment was compact & clean with all necessities for cooking in or for short walks to local cafes, tapas bars & restaurants. We loved having a washing machine, clothesline & dishwasher but the highlight was a rooftop patio off the bedroom - the perfect place to have morning coffee or a pre-dinner plate of Iberian ham, cheese & olives to go with your favourite new Catalan wine!

Metro stations & bus stops are 5-10 minutes away on foot for quick access to all areas of city. If you prefer to walk & soak in the beautiful architecture & shaded boulevards, it is only 15 minutes to reach Plaza Catalunya & the fun chaos that is Las Ramblas.

Would highly recommend this location for your stay in Barcelona!

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!
