Overview

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 balcony 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.

Wonderful stay in Barcelona!

  • 5 of 5

We, 2 middle aged Canadian couples stayed in the 2 bedroom 2 bathroom apartment in September. The master bedroom and bathroom are large and lovely. The other bedroom and bathroom are quite a bit smaller but comfortable and had everything that was necessary. Beds were very comfy. Kitchen was very modern, with everything in it you could possibly need. The outdoor area off the living room and bedroom was fabulous. Enjoying a cup of coffee or glass of wine there was a great way to start the day or have a little relaxing time. It was very warm in September so the air conditioning was a wonderful option to have.

We appreciated having wifi available in order to keep in touch with family at home.

The location is perfect and within walking distance to most tourist sites. The neighborhood is lovely and we always felt very safe.

Isabel was wonderful to communicate with. Always easy to reach and quick to respond. We were met at the apartment by an associate of Isabel’s when we arrived and Isabel was there to see us off at the end of our stay.

This apartment was perfect…very clean, comfortable and convenient to everything. We would highly recommend this apartment and we would love to stay here again should we return to Barcelona in the future.

Thank you Isabel……we had a most wonderful vacation in Barcelona!

Perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

I just returned from beautiful Barcelona, and wanted to write a review for this lovely apartment. It is within walking distance of almost any place you would want to go, and there are many restaurants and cafes in the neighborhood, with a wonderful grocery store just around the corner.

The apartment itself is very comfortable and has everything you need for your stay. Isabel kindly stocked the fridge with drinks before we got there which was a nice surprise. The view is out onto a courtyard surrounded by other apartments, so you don't get any noise from the street.

I can highly recommend this apartment for anyone going to Barcelona. You won't be disappointed!

Beautiful flat with the best location in lovely Barcelona!

  • 5 of 5

We've rented in several cities through VRBO and this was our favourite yet! Right from the start, Isabel was very punctual responding to our original inquiry. Even before we arrived she sent us a list of several restaurants, sites, etc.that were a great help when planning our trip. She was waiting for us when we arrived. The flat is absolutely beautiful with plenty of room for my husband, myself and our two teenaged boys! She even left us a welcome of a few necessities, juice, milk, cava! Very much appreciated on a warm August day. The air-conditioning was also a pleasure. The location was absolutely perfect. We walked almost everywhere... most sites are within walking distance! FYI... the night event with music and drinks on the rooftop of the Casa Batllo was magical! Thank you Isabel for sharing your lovely flat... it truly felt like our home away from home! All the best... we are already planning another visit and wouldn't hesitate to stay again!!

Extraordinary Hospitality!

  • 5 of 5

Isabel and Mike are superb hosts and the apartment is beautiful, well- located and decorated with unique features. Isabel could not have been a better host - sorting every detail out and attending to our sometimes taxing needs. I really cannot thank her, and Michael, enough for all they did. I highly recommend this beautiful apartment for a group of 2-4 people.

Lovely modern downtown apartment

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is central and most places of interest are within a few minutes walk. It has been professionally designed and renovated with the exception of the original tiled floor that has been lovingly restored. It is suitable for 2 couples but the master bedroom with its ensuite is more spacious and luxurious than the smaller bedroom with double bed and small separate bathroom with shower. Isabel is truly welcoming and helpful. Her list of bars and restaurants allowed us to discover fine dining and colourful local tapas bars. Would definitely come here 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.
