Overview

About the property

Apartment, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

Studio apartment only two minutes from Plaza Catalunya in the heart of Barcelona. The apartment is located in the famous Rambla de Catalunya, one of the most famous streets in Barcelona where you will find the beautiful 'Casa Batlló' and the 'Pedrera' of the famous architect Antonio Gaudí, lined with shops, restaurants and café´s. This quiet and cosy apartment is located on the penthouse floor of a 19th century classic building with a concierge. The studio apartment has a small fully equipped kitchen with a two ring hob, fridge, washing machine and cutlery, pots and pans. The bedroom/living room has a double bed, satellite t-v and free internet via WIFI. The studio opens to a very large sun terrace with table, deck chairs and umbrella.

Barcelona’s extensive Eixample district brings together a large number of modernista buildings of great architectural value. However, it is the central part which showcases most of the buildings designed in this style. Known as the Quadrat d’Or (Golden Square), it is the place where Barcelona’s moneyed classes came to live in the flats designed by the leading architects of the day, such as Gaudí. You will find something to suit every taste in this area, design and fashion shops, relaxing parks and a range of bars and cafes to have your morning coffee in. There are also a good number of restaurants, bars and discos for those looking for some nightlife Barcelona is so famous for.

It can be difficult to resist the temptation to stop and try out some the local pastries & coffees, drinks & tapas or have dinner in some of the most fashionable restaurants in Barcelona.

Towards the bottom of L´Eixample it meets with Plaza Catalunya and the beginning of the Gothic Quarter.

I have also another condo at the same address: VRBO Listing #404805

About Philippe Bareilles

Hello, I am born in 1954, I speak english, spanish and french. I was before in the movie business and studied production at NYU in 1980-1983, and since 2005 I dedicate myself to tourism. It is much quieter!

Philippe Bareilles purchased this apartment in 1995

Why Philippe Bareilles chose Eixample

This property and VRBO Listing #404805 are both the best location Barcelona can offer: the best place in the world. Sea, mountains and countryside in few minutes drive.

What makes this apartment unique

This penthouse is right in the center heart of the city and has a huge deck and it is very calm and quiet.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Philippe's Penthouse was, in short, INCREDIBLE. Located a few blocks north of Las Ramblas, it was very convenient to explore the nightlife and tourist spots of Barcelona. The apartment itself was impeccably clean and so very comfortable. Philippe was an amazing host- he left several tour guides and even compiled his own (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) maps of spots around the apartment to explore. He also left a very large bottle of water for us when we checked in, which was very appreciated. We didn't use the kitchen at all, but during our tour at check-in, I saw that there was just about every basic amenity there for anyone to use. Philippe had Arejeanne help us with check-in and she was so nice and thorough in showing and explaining the apartment and protocols. I cannot speak more highly of this apartment and Philippe!

Great location, very secure and clean and comfortable.

  • 4 of 5

The Accommodation was in a great location, very quiet at night. It was very secure. The studio was clean and comfortable meeting all our needs for a 4 night stay in Barcelona. The host was great to deal with. It was also closed to great cafes and bars.

Lovely studio in the middle of Barcelona

  • 5 of 5

This place was awesome. The location was excellent for seeing many of the Barcelona sights on foot and close to the Metro, too. Phillipe was very responsive for questions that came up. I'd certainly recommend this place for any person or couple spending time in Barcelona.

Superior location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 18 nights here in Barcelona. Being central to all the major sights allowed us to walk everywhere! If you are taking your time to see the city, this is the central location from which to do it.

The terrace gave us a welcome break and a place to relax when we needed it. We could watch the city unfold below us on Placa Catalunya, specially for Barcelona's special events such as Sant Jordi Day and Hat Parade Day.

The apartment was compact, clean and comfortable. Sant Caterina market provided us with the produce to cook up a storm in a modest kitchen.

Philippe was both friendly and accomodating and let's hope he has been able to fix the hole in his roof. haha.

Highly recommend.

Great location, great value

  • 4 of 5

This was a great flat. Clean and comfortable. Close enough to everything, but quiet at night to get restful sleep. The patio was really nice to lounge and enjoy a glass of wine. The antique elevator was kind of annoying because one must close the door or it gets stuck at the current floor. I was guilty of this a few times and Philippe came in and reminded us. But he was pleasant about it. If I owned the building I would strongly consider putting a 5 second delay contact alarm on the door. Aside from the elevator this flat was excellent and I would highly recommend it.

Good Stay

  • 3 of 5

This is a good place to stay but it has some short comings. its at the northern side of most of what you'll want to see, but not inconvenient. It is very convenient to several Gaudi buildings. the room is a decent size but from the bed you cannot see outside. It has a huge balcony with a nice view. Kept meaning to use it but we were too busy,

Great little apartment in very convenient location.

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was great. Very conveniently located within walking distance of everything and very close to Metro stops. We arrived very early in the morning and Philippe and Arjeanne were very sweet to let us in early. Arjeanne was still cleaning so we just rested on the terrace. Eternally grateful for letting us in early! Our only complaint is that on our last day there the elevator was under maintenance and so we had to walk up 6 flights. Not so bad on the last day and we made sure we only had to do the up trip once, but the following morning when we had to leave with our luggage...now that was a work out. Not sure that Philippe could do anything about this as I think it may have been a routine maintenance thing. Overall, we are very pleased with the apartment and our trip to Barcelona.
