Overview

Eixample Apartment Rental Photos and Description

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!

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.

It is officially registered at Generalitat Turisme under: HUTB-003300-15

Location, location, LOCATION!!!

We marveled at the wonderful location of the apartment...right ON the Rambla!! We had never visited Barcelona before, and this apartment couldn't have been in a better location! What a Beautiful city Barcelona is!!!

The apartment was very clean and well appointed! It is compact, but for two of us...who chose to sightsee each day...it worked out perfectly!! There is an issue of carrying your luggage up one flight of stairs upon arrival and departure, but that was clearly explained in the property writeup.

Philippe's assistant met us upon our arrival and explained details about the apartment...and answered questions about Barcelona. That was a VERY nice touch!!

We would definitely recommend this apartment to friends and relatives looking for a convenient comfortable place to stay when visiting Barcelona!!

Ideal location in an amazing city

  • 5 of 5

The space is small but efficient and I highly recommend it.

Also check out Faborit restaurant, one block over, for great salads, juices, and hot chocolate.

A perfect place for us in Barcelona

  • 5 of 5

Every single word that Phillipe uses to describe his VRBO property is true...and the combined effect is that the sum is greater than its parts. This penthouse was immaculate, centrally located and outfitted with every detail in consideration for the traveler, right down to the umbrellas that we never needed! His agent was prompt, gracious and helpful in greeting us and other features in the building, elevator, lighting, and security (four keys!) made the visit hassle-free.

We had a huge terrasse overlooking la Ramblas de Catalunya, where we enjoyed a coffee in the morning...and glass of wine in the evening...stars at night.

We are so grateful to Phillipe for sharing this penthouse on VRBO and hope someday to return.

Wonderful location and cute, private little place.

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here for three days prior to our cruise.Very convenient location. We could walk to many of the places we wanted to see. Markets were close by. Spent our downtime out on the open terrace. Private, quiet and great place for morning coffee and evening cava. Has all the amenities and bed was comfortable. Would like to come back and stay here longer. Kim & Jim
