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
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.
We have carefully restored and modernised two beautiful rental flats, Flat1A & Flat1B, right in the heart of Barcelona, Spain.

Clean, lovely apartment. Markets are nearby to fill the refrigerator and pantry with necessities. Isabel is there for all of your questions about the neighborhood. Felt very safe and homey in this apartment. Would highly recommend it!
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!
First off, Isabel is fantastic. She knows how to operate her home away from home right. The apt is lovely, clean and everything works. Love it!
Isabel makes your Barcelona stay an incredible experience. Her apartment is in a great location with all of the extras you hope for in an apartment, plus some juice and milk already in the refrigerator. Great location with good eating opportunities on the surrounding blocks. The apartment has unique, original tile flooring that has been lovingly restored. The second bedroom is quite small but very functional. The view to the interior courtyard is straight out of Rear Window. Rent with confidence from Isabel. She is wonderful in working through any problems you might have.
When you come to Barcelona, rent this apartment. The owner Isabel is very prompt in replying to your email questions. She was there when we arrived after our cruise, when we could only give her a rough estimate of our arrival time.
We shared apartment 1A with another couple and it worked perfectly for us. We were able to have breakfast before departing for the day. Setting on the balcony having a glass of wine is a perfect prior to going out to dinner. Great restaurant choices with Isabel's recommendations were a real help. If you need a grocery store there is one right around the corner.
The location could not have been better. Short walks to major points for Hop On/Off buses gave us the flexibility to see the city and sights on our own schedule. Definitely get the 2 day pass, too much to see and do in one day. We rented the apartment for 3 days and needed another week in Barcelona.
Miss the city and this great apartment.
We shared this apartment with another couple and stayed for 4 nights. We were the lucky ones who (after tossing a coin) got the larger bedroom with en suite bathroom, but our friends were happy nevertheless and said their bed was very comfortable.
The apartment has gorgeous original tiled floors and lovely high ceilings. The decor and furniture is stylish and modern, and has been cleverly designed so that clutter can be hidden from view. We all loved it!
Location-wise, it couldn't be better: Central, but also quiet at night, and it certainly felt very safe. Plenty of shops and restaurants nearby.
Isabel, the owner, is lovely! She was waiting for us when we arrived and was so warm and welcoming; She honestly felt like a real friend after just a few minutes. She has gone to great lengths to help guests by providing all the information you could possibly want in a file - from appliance instructions to places to eat and things to see/do in Barcelona.
We have no hesitation at all in recommending this apartment. I'm missing it now we are home again!
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.
