Description

Flat 1A - SHB

Both apartments are equally nice and both very quiet! Apartment 1B has a small balcony overlooking the street. The view from the blacony in 1A is of the inside of the manzana (block). The master bedroom in 1A has an en suite bathroom with bath and shower. There is also a shower room adjacent to the second bedroom, but it is not en-suite. Both apartments are very comfortable for up to four guests with two double bedrooms (beds are doubles not twins) and I am sure that you would appreciate the combinations of period features with tasteful modern design. There is a detailed description of the apartments in the website: SweetHomeBarcelona.com


About the property

SweetHomeBarcelona

This luxury apartments are perfectly located in an upmarket street in the heart of the Eixample district, the Quadrat d'Or (The Golden Square) of central Barcelona a few blocks away from exclusive areas such as Passeig de Gràcia, the Rambla and Plaça Catalunya. The apartments dates from around the year 1900 and have original 'Escofet' tiled floors and period features. We have worked carefully with designers and specialists to retain the original features whilst bringing the apartments into the 21st century by including stylish modern kitchens, bathrooms, comfortable living room with sofas, satellite television, DVD and CD player, dining area with table and chairs and period balcony looking over great period architecture.

The flats have hot/air conditioning. They are within comfortable walking distance of most top popular tourist sites such as Gaudi modernist architecture, designer shopping streets and the city 'Barceloneta beach'.

In our opinion this is one of the best areas for visiting Barcelona because of its central location and historical heritage. The apartments are peaceful at night and at weekends. There are great cafes, bars and restaurants close by which we can recommend and we have personally tried. The closest metro stations (Urquinaona and Tetuan) are only 2 minutes walk from the flat.

Upscale and Convenient

  • 5 of 5

We looked for an apartment for our 10 day stay in Barcelona that was both convenient to many of the attractions we were interested in and that offered a more upscale ambiance. Flat 1A is a 2 bedroom/2 bathroom accommodation with a galley kitchen and a balcony facing adjoining courtyards. The flooring is original tile and lends to the European feel. Isabel, the owner, provides very complete instructions on the many appliances and shares good suggestions for places of interest that are mostly within a 10-20 minute walk. Local transportation is available, but we found taxis to be most efficient for short rides from one part of the city to another—no prior planning needed. The city is very cosmopolitan—the architecture is world class with so many examples of Gaudi’s work, good food, good wine and friendly people. Markets for groceries and many cafes are all very close by.

We also rented a car for side trips to the Costa Brava and Montserrat. The EuRopcar office is 2 blocks away. Torre de Mar is a beautiful seaside town with a medieval village enclosed by walls and towers and a sandy cove surrounded by steep cliffs. Another adventure took us to the monastery, church and mountains of Montserrat. The Catholic mass on Sunday was a truly spiritual experience with the world famous boys choir and the massive organ accompaniment. You can park below and enjoy the cable car (Aeri) ride up and back. There are also two funiculars at the site to different chapels and many hiking trails to explore the unique geographic features. It was reminiscent of Zion and Bryce Canyons in the western US and only about an hour drive from the city. Keep in mind if renting a car, there is a parking garage nearby (Aumasa) on C/Ausias Marc, but mind the hours of operation and beware they close early when full. Another choice would be the garage on C/Bailen 71 (about 2.5-3 blocks away).

Put this trip on your bucket list and our best regards to Isabel.

Wonderful flat in Great Area

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay with Sweet Home Barcelona. Isabel is a marvelous hostess and made our stay very enjoyable. The flat is in a great location; reasonable walking distance to virtually everything you want to see in the city, and convenient to several metro stations. The flat is well equipped with a large refrigerator (by European standards) and excellent kitchen appliances. It was great to having a clothes washer and a clothes line. It allows you to pack lighter. Grocery stores and restaurants are very convenient. The second bedroom is small but livable. I would recommend this apartment to anyone wishing to spend time in Barcelona.

We had a fantastic stay in Barcelona!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was perfect. Isabel met us at the apartment and introduced us to all the amenities. She was also very accommodating with our early arrival time and made sure to stay in constant contact. The apartment was very clean and beautiful. The photos are very actuate. We also loved the modern kitchen and bathrooms. Everything worked perfectly. The large doors in the balcony allowed us a fantastic view which we utilized every night while sipping drinks. It was a lovely stay. Thank you Isabel!

You would be staying right in the heart of Barcelona in a building occupied by Catalan residents. These apartments are in a very safe area in the heart of the Eixample district, the Quadrat d'Or (The Golden Square) of central Barcelona just a few blocks from areas such as Passeig de Gràcia, Rambla de Catalunya and Plaça Catalunya. The entire area surrounding the apartment building is full of beautiful modernist buildings influenced by the modernist architects, chief among whom was Antoni Gaudí. The apartment is peaceful at night and at weekends.

As well as exploring the city itself, you can make day trips to the beautiful Catalan countryside, the city of Girona and the Costa Brava. Portaventura for the kids is only an hour's drive away.

Barcelona offers beautiful parks, stylish shopping; a top-class aquarium, zoo and a funfair at the top of Tibidabo mountain. When it comes to eating out, there is an abundance of great restaurants from simple tapas to Michelin-starred restaurants.
