About the property

Located In Uptown Barcelona Yet Only 4 Metro Stops From The Centre!

Located in uptown Barcelona yet only 4 metro stops from the centre, this brand new apartment comes with 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and a terrace with views over the entire city and all the way to the sea!

I fell in love with this apartment because of the views. The moment you enter the door you're blessed with an incredible panorama of Barcelona, all the way to the sea. A lot of detail has been put in the remodelling: hydraulic floors, Agatha Ruiz de la Prada tiles, expensive showers, highest quality amenities in the kitchen.... If you like your holiday home to be clean, modern, comfortable and chic then this is it!


The living/dining room is open plan with the kitchen and has access to the terrace through large sliding glass doors, bathing it in light. The floors are hand-painted ceramic tiles, reminiscent of the typical geometric floor tiles found in the high-end houses in the Eix­ample district of Barcelona.

The large shelf with B&W pictures of Barcelona holds books, DVDs, the 42 inch TV and home cinema sound system. The sound system comes with a lead to plug your phones, Ipads or Ipods so you can play your own music. Change the source and listen to the radio. A desk for your computer is cleverly built into the shelf.

The sitting area has two sofas, a rocking chair, tables, lamps and magazines in various languages. The glass dining table can seat 6 people – dress it with a table cloth or different types of table sets.

There’s a super fast fibre optics internet WIFi connection and free telephone to local lines.


It is fully furnished with toaster, fridge/freezer, microwave/grill, dishwasher, washing machine, boiler, coffee machine.

I leave you all the basics like olive oil, vinegar, sugar, salt, pepper, coffee, napkins, toilet paper and of course a bottle of wine to enjoy on the terrace!


There's one master bedroom with a large double bed, air-conditioning, dressing table, 2 large cupboards and incredible views. Adjacent to it is a twin bedroom and the beds can be put together if you wish. These two bedrooms share a bathroom with shower.

Near the entrance of the apartment is another small double bedroom with an en-suite bathroom. The bathroom comes with a tub and rain shower.

Although the apartment was clean, and as described, although the apartment is renovated, it is in an old building. The next time I visit Barcelona I'd look for an apartment in a more convenient neighborhood...Yes, the bus stopped in front, but it's 15 stops to city Center. The metro station was located 1/4 ml. away, down a difficult 1000 ft., 30 degree sloping path (hard walk uphill). In addition, the area is very "blue collar", doesn't have any decent places to eat, and I found the locals to not be very friendly to tourists. I chose this place based on the fact that it was in a "safe" area (which it was), but after visiting many of the central areas of Barcelona, although more crowded, I also found them to be "safe" (never felt threatened), and all of them had a large police presence... these areas are also where all the sights, restaurants and culture are... I'd rather leave an apartment and walk a few blocks to be in the center of things, than spend an hour (round trip) to do so. Nothing really wrong with this place, this is just my view.

Perfect place to stay in Barcelona

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was very clean and well maintained. It contained all the amenities we needed like wifi, washer/dryer, microwave/oven combo, coffee maker, tv & home cinema surround sound and plenty of DVD’s to choose from. The owner, Vanessa, met us upon arrival and was extremely nice and helpful providing lots of tips on the use of the apartment as well as recommendations on places to visit. She gave us a bottle of wine and fresh fruit to enjoy. She also included a binder with instructions for all appliances, local restaurants, etc. There were 3 - 4 markets within a 1-2 minute walk for anything you needed and a fresh produce market right next door with delicious organic fruits and vegetables to choose from. The apartment is within walking distance to a metro stop and is in a quiet and safe neighborhood. But most of all the view is simply amazing all day and all night!!! The last morning we were there we woke up to a beautiful sunrise peeking beyond our spectacular view. We saw many gorgeous parts of Barcelona but wouldn’t have traded our view and close proximity to the city for any other area.

Great apartment with perfect view!

  • 5 of 5

This is a very nice and newly renovated apartment. Spacious, clean and very well designed. All amenities you need are there. The view from the balcony is great. My previous stays in Barcelona has usually been downtown and then having a view of a dirty alley. This is something completely different. We had a very good time there and enjoyed it a lot. I´ll be happy to come back! Mathias:-)
