About this listing
Make your visit to Barcelona memorable staying in this fantastic, luxurious, wonderfully restored, tastefully decorated with objects from Asia, modernist (art nouveau) style apartment, walking distance to many tourist attractions and a 17 min pleasant walk to Barcelona´s center!
This beautifully classical place, in the modernism style, is on the first floor of a traditional 19th century building in the Eixample district, next to a lovely and basically pedestrian street, centrally located in an area with great selection of restaurants and bars, close to public transportation and with stores and supermarkets nearby.
If your group consists of up to 6 people, why stay in a small apartment with insufficient showers, toilets and rooms and no air conditioning in all rooms (a basic need for Barcelona from June to September)? For just a bit more this apartment offers you 3 bedrooms, two full bathrooms and AC throughout to make your stay comfortable and pleasant, among lovely arquitectural details!!
It is an 15 min walk to Pl. Universitat (red metro line running north-south), 6 min to Passeig de Gracia, the upscale shopping artery of the city (green metro line running east-west) or Hospital Clinic (blue metro line) metro stations. Many buses stop 1-2 mins walk from the apartment.
The apartment is 100 m2 plus (1185 sq ft), with very high ceilings with charming original plaster crown molding, and beautiful floors with original hydraulic tiles in a patchwork pattern. It has been just restored, faithfully following the original floor plan and style, but with an up to date reinterpretation.
The apartment has a dining room/living room and a total of 3 double bedrooms, (one of them connected to one of the bedrooms but with an independent entrance through the bathroom) with air conditioning. Two of the bedrooms face the street but double glass block a lot of the street noise and the street is mostly pedestrian, the other bedroom faces the inside of the block and is quiet. It has a total of three double beds all of which can be converted into twin beds, so up to 6 people can sleep without having to share a bed. It also has a fully equipped kitchen that is lovely, modern and big but with classical charm and it has all you might need to cook plus dishwasher, microwave, etc. There are two full bathrooms (one with shower and one with bathtub). There is a washer and one TV.
I provide you with basics for cooking like oil, vinegar, salt and spices, 100% cotton white ironed linens, towels, beach towels, table cloths, ironing equipment, 2 hair dryers, 1 hair iron, shampoo, conditioner, soap, body lotion and assorted toiletries.
Check in and check out are flexible, except in cases in which there is a group coming/leaving the same day (doesn't happen often), in which case check out is before 10 am and check in is after 3 pm, although you can leave your bags in the apartment.
The whole apartment fits a maximum of 6 people.
Note that children/babies of any age also count as one person.
Please be reminded that this is an apartment within a residential building. It is VERY important not to disturb the neighbors, so no parties or loud music are allowed at any time. Also, you can invite over, during the day, one or two guests that you know from before your trip to Barcelona, no more, and occasionally, but under no circumstance there should be overnight guests or anybody who you just met...

It was great to stay at Julia's place. Beautiful old appartment with lots of original details. Reception by Julia and Juan was absolutely heartwarming, with cava and tortilla. She gave us lots of nice touristic tips too. Lovely and very handy located close to metro and city center, still in a nice and quote area with lots of restaurants. Sure we will be back soon. Thanks for everything, Julia!
We (family with 3 teenagers) had a wonderful time in Barcelona. The apartment is great ! Looking good, very clean, neighborhood is quiet and very nice area with lots of small restaurants and bars, you can easily find a place to eat or drink (very good) Spanish coffee. Is is also convenient located near shops and the Metro. Julia is very helpful and very nice, she reacts very quickly on questions and knows a lot of helpful things about Barcelona (as restaurants etc.)
Spend 4 nights in Julia's apartment and had a fantastic time. The flat is lovely and full of character. Exactly as the pictures show it. The flat was very clean and had everything you need such as soap, shampoo, washing powder etc. Julia and her mum where very helpful

Also we tried some pretty awesome tapa restaurants nearby which Julia suggested. We had a wonderful stay in this beautiful apartment
