Description

The Space

Located on the border of the old town, right in the centre of Barcelona. The grittiness and the realness of the streets contrasts and compliments the contemporary design of the apartment. This area is one of the best kept secrets as it has not been overly cleansed of it's past. There are many hidden places to discover in a very multi-cultural community. It is only two blocks to the new part of town called Eixample - but far enough from it's traffic and cars! The apartment is near big supermarkets, fruit/veg markets, public transport and the tourist attractions.

The area is safe and only 10 minute walk to the Ramblas and the Boqueria Market, 10 minute walk to Carrer Blai and groovy Parliament (tapas street), 10 minute walk to Barrio Adria, 15 minute walk to Gaixample, 25 minute walk to the beaches. There are loads of restaurants, bars, cafes and vegetarian options within minutes. All of the convenience without the fight with the other tourists!

TRANSPORT: 5 mins to Metro Parallel / Funicular to Montjuic, 8 mins to Metro Sant Antoni, 12 mins to Metro Liceu, 12 mins to the Aerobus (stop Urgell), 5 mins to Bus 64 to beach, 15 mins by taxi to airport (29-32€)

PARKING: parking is available at around 10€ per day, pre-booked with ParClic booking agents.

THE BUILDING AND AREA: The west-facing apartment is a little building on top of the roof (atico). It is very private, and overlooks the rolling hills of Tibidabo, and you can even see the Sagrada Familia in the far distance. The apartment is newly refurbished in a building built in 1803, and has a new elevator. The area has been re-urbanised and the streets have been made pedestrian, but good planning has retained a lot of local eccentricities and character. It has a village feel, right in the middle of the city.

LIVING AREA: 300Mb wi-fi, air conditioning, central heating, Comfy sofa, HDTV / MP3 speakers / USB chargers / DVD movie library of Spanish, English and adult films, satellite news channels, local TV, extendible table for four. (note: new smaller HDTV installed, not the TV in the photos. The apartment has been refreshed since the photos, and there is new artwork reflecting Barcelona street life!)

KITCHEN AREA: oven, hob, extractor fan, fridge, freezer, microwave, citrus juicer, dishwasher, toaster, kettle, cooking and crockery. Nespresso machine, filter coffee machine, and Italian cafetiere for caffeine addicts.

We have an honour bar (tasty treats, drinks, extra Nespresso capsules, and emergency essentials available at a reasonable price).

Everyone gets a complimentary welcome breakfast pack: (water, juice, milk, coffee, tea, yoghurt).

SMALL TERRACE: triple patio doors. table for two, washing machine, clothes air drier, remote control blackout/privacy window blind, accordion security gates.

SLEEPING AREA: orthopedic double bed (135cm x 190cm), storage above and below, bed linen, two foam and four feather pillows, feather and polyester duvets/comforters.

BATHROOM: thermostatic shower, constant hot water, electric hair drier, 2 sets of towels, (plus 2 beach and 2 gym towels), hypoallergenic - shower gel, shampoo + hand wash.

ENTRY AREA: Triple lock security door, entry phone from street, fire extinguisher, smoke detector, emergency flashlight, full length mirror and full length hanging space. steam iron, ironing board. Local area information, maps and games.

OCCUPANCY: The apartment is for 2 people sleeping in the bed (the sofa is not a sofa bed, and is not suggested for sleeping).

RECAP: Think of it as a nice boutique hotel room with a kitchen and outside space!

The flat is quiet with new sound insulation and double pane windows! Minimal traffic as this is a pedestrian area. It can be noisier on weekends, but it is quite muffled. The entire city is loud and late. Viva España!

Please Note:

There is one flight of stairs that are a bit steeper and narrower than normal. Saying that, we have never had anyone have a problem with them.

There may be a late check-in charge of 30€ for flights arriving after 10pm (22h), please discuss your flights before booking. Super early guaranteed check-in and super late check-out may be available.

LGBT owned. Dry sense of humour guaranteed. We are Superhosts - our reviews confirm this.

Note about Pricing:

Our default price stated is for: last minute availability, cancellations, the low season of November, December and January. Our peak price is 105 per night plus cleaning charge, plus Airbnb commission. Some of our pricing is managed by Airbnb's new automated pricing system, which uses their supply and demand metrics, like hotels and airlines. The best way to lock-in a price is to enquire, and we will then pre-approve your booking. This will hold the price (but not the reservation) for 24 hours. Reservations are on a first-booked basis. Prices can change daily, and without notice.

The Panoramic Atico is self-contained and has all of the comforts you would want. It is completely private. There is an lift, and one flight of stairs to the apartment.

We provide a thorough and personal check-in. We are then available if you have any questions or problems. We allow guests their privacy, the apartment is self-contained.

We love the neighbourhood for its location, and the fact that it is fairly free of the zillions of tourists. The area is multi-cultural - alternative - creative and yet traditional in it's roots. It is a very tolerant and liberal neighbourhood - always buzzing with activity. The area is safe, as it has more of a village feel due to the fact that many of the neighbours were born where they live.

We also love that the guide books and online guides still say that the area is dodgy - this is a nice filter to keep away the tourists that invade the rest of the centre of Barcelona.

You can walk to most places, but there are three metro stations (Parallel, Sant Antoni, Liceu) and the Monjuic Funicular within minutes. The Aerobus stop is a 12 minute walk. The Ramblas is 10 minutes away.

BEFORE completing your booking, we suggest that your travel plans are confirmed.

The Neighborhood

We love the neighbourhood for its location, and the fact that it is fairly free of the zillions of tourists. The area is multi-cultural - alternative - creative and yet traditional in it's roots. It is a very tolerant and liberal neighbourhood - always buzzing with activity. The area is safe, as it has more of a village feel due to the fact that many of the neighbours were born where they live.

It is gritty, but that is what it makes it feel like the real Barcelona of yesteryear - today! Please understand that this contrast is the beauty of staying in the centre - and - everything is near!

If you don't want to experience this real street life, then please do not book. We prefer people that stay who appreciate this ironic contrast that we have created. We are in the middle of the most 'IN' areas of Barcelona - Raval, Barrio Adria, Sant Antonio, Parliament, Poble Sec. If you are looking for the clinically clean and homogenous, please book somewhere in Eixample.

(We do not mean to be rude, but we get the odd guest that books quickly based on the photo of the apartment, without considering the complete package. We prefer to host adventurous people who want a bit of luxe with their immersion into the local neighbourhoods!)

We also love that the guide books and online guides still say that the area is dodgy - this is a nice filter to keep away the tourists that invade the rest of the centre of Barcelona.
