The Space

Attic with excellent central location just 30 meters from the Sagrada Familia, one of the most popular tourist attractions of Barcelona.
Due to the proximity to the Sagrada Familia and the fact that it is the most visited monument in Barcelona and Spain, the area is full of restaurants and bars with terraces, supermarkets, all kinds of stores, etc
The beaches are easily reached by metro. However, you can get them in easy 25 min walk if you prefer.
The physical center of Barcelona (Plaza Catalunya) and its main shopping street (Paseo de Gracia) are located at just 3 metro stops away.
The attic has 3 bedrooms, 1 with a double bed, one with 2 single beds and one with bunk beds. The first 2 rooms have views of the Sagrada Familia.
The kitchen is fully equipped.
The living room has an extendable table suitable for 6 people. It opens onto a large terrace with outdoor furniture with cushioned chairs and a big awning. Also, at a higher level, there is a huge solarium.
The building has two facades so all the rooms are very bright all day long.

The Neighborhood

The apartment is located in a safe area, especially at night.
It's a very tourist area so it's well guarded by the police during the day. At night it's pretty quiet as the tourists are gone to other nightlife areas in Barcelona.

Getting around

At 50 m you can find the "Sagrada Familia" metro station and several public buses and tour buses stops.

Other Things to Note

The apartment has the Certificate of Habitability and the Energy Performance Certificate, issued by the official bodies. This ensures that it is in compliance with local and regional regulations

  • Fantastic place! Fantastic host! Fantastic location! Extremely easy to find from his address and (website hidden) maps. We are a family of 5 (3 small children) and Arturo's place easily accommodated us. His apartment has a great layout. The rooms are of good size and the bathroom, kitchen are also very nice. The whole apartment was very clean, you can tell quickly that Arturo takes great pride in his place. The best feature is the terrace. We ate many meals out there and enjoyed the city at night from up there. The location is unbeatable. You are truly 90 seconds from a metro stop and just essentially one exchange away from most anything you want to see in Barca. If you have children, we can't say enough good things about the location. There is a park right in front of LaSagrada, which is one block from the apartment. A grocery store 1 block over and plenty of places to grab dinner or snacks. The best part of this is actually Arturo. Although we never met him ( we were met by his friend) he checked in with us often via text to make sure everything was well. He is a very thoughtful person who has a terrific rental. You will love this place!

  • Excellent apartment in great location just a few hundred metres from Sagrada Familia and metro line. Loads of restaurants in the immediate area, but apartment very well equiped for self catering. Loved all the little extras left by Arturo. Great apartment & great host.

  • We met Arturo and Fatima at the front of the apartment with big smiles. From the start, we could tell we would have a great experience and we were not disappointed. The apartment is located 1/2 block from the Sagrada Familia in a nice neighborhood. Its on the top floor of a quiet building. There is a lift, and it made transporting the luggage very easy. The apartment is well represented in the photographs, and it was extremely comfortable for myself and my wife, 3 kids and mother-in-law for our stay. Arturo showed us the particulars of the apartment, left us some welcoming refreshments in the refrigerator, and plenty of maps and brochures to make our way around town. We were able to wash a few loads of clothes (we were already on day 14 of our European vacation) and leave them to dry while we visited the sites.

    Also, Arturo was completely accessible via email during our stay for recommendations. Clearly an added bonus.

    All in all, I totally reccomend this place for those who wish to be in a great location in a comfortable family apartment, Cheers to you, Arturo, and congratulations once again....

  • Even though our stay was a short one (4 days), it was apparent even several months out before our trip to Spain that Arturo was a very caring host. We can absolutely vouch that he is as genuine and friendly as they come and a fantastic ambassador for Barcelona/Spain in general. We were lucky to experience such kindness and friendship during our stay, which made it all the more enjoyable. As for the apartment, we were really happy with it too. The balcony area was a great spot for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The bedrooms were perfect for our needs. The bathroom super clean and modern. And the kitchen, fully equipped. There were also lots of small nice touches throughout the apartment that showed the degree to which Arturo thinks carefully about his guests. All in all, we would absolutely recommend Arturo to you as a fantastic host, and you won't be disappointed with your stay near the incredible Sagrada Familia.

  • We would not hesitate to recommend this 'Cozy Attic' to anyone visiting Barcelona. Arturo & Fatima were very welcoming when we arrived! The apartment was very clean and well equipped. Plus, you really can't beat the location.
    We were a family of 4 (3 & 6 yr old) on a 3 week road trip in Europe. I suppose the only hiccup was with no parking being available. However, that was easily sorted - we left the car in a parkade about 2 blocks away for the duration. Certainly didn't need the car while we were there and we were able to get a reduced rate.
    Just wish we could have stayed longer!

  • Unser Aufenthalt in Arturos "Cozy Atttic" war traumhaft schön! Die Wohnung ist sehr gemütlich und sauber, geschmackvoll und unheimlich praktisch eingerichtet. Es ist einfach alles da, was man braucht - bis hin zum tragbaren Sonnenschirm für den Strand. Absolutes Highlight ist die Dachterrasse, auf der es sich herrlich frühstücken und den Abendhimmel genießen lässt! Wir haben uns zu fünft (zwei Erwachsene und DREI Kinder :)) sehr wohl gefühlt und werden definitiv wiederkommen. Arturo ist ein unheimlich netter und hilfsbereiter Gastgeber, der jederzeit gut erreichbar ist. (Er hat für uns noch spät in der Nacht ein Taxi zum Flughafen am nächsten Morgen organisiert, nachdem wir es stundenlang vergeblich versucht und aufgegeben hatten.) Absolut empfehlenswert!!!

  • I highly recommend Arturo's apartment to anyone staying in Barcelona. It was a wonderfully central location and was clean and quiet - a great base to explore the beautiful city of Barcelona! Arturo was the BEST host, he sent my friends and I some links to sightseeing information and tours in this amazing city and kept us updated as our arrival date approached.

    He and his lovely partner were on hand to greet us after out long flight from Australia and he provided full instructions about this spacious apartment (five of us stayed quite comfortably for four days) and how to get the most out of our stay in Barcelona. Arturo also provided recommendations for his favourite restaurants and our stay couldn't have been more special, particularly as I hadn't seen my friends from England for 12 years. A wonderful apartment and a host that goes the extra mile to ensure that your stay in Barcelona is memorable - what more could we have asked for. Thank you Arturo!

  • We had a great time in Arturo’s apartment, it was perfect!
    To take breakfast in the morning on the terrace – such a good start in the morning. For us it’s for sure, when we will be in Barcelona again - only in Arturo’s flat. Thank you Arturo we really enjoyed it. Best regards from the girls.

  • Très bon séjour à Barcelone. Très bel Appartement, très propre, bien situé, agréable terrasse, bien desservi par le métro et bus. Merci pour le très bon accueil d'arthuro, nous avons fort apprécié la sangria fraîche qui nous attendait après les quelques péripéties pour trouver l'appartement (très simple à trouver mais je n'avais pris que le bon de réservation sur lequel ne figure pas l'adresse....). Adresse à recommander, en tous les cas, si on revient à Barcelone, c'est promis, on vient te voir Arthuro!

  • Absolutely perfect stay. The apartment is really big and has everything you could possibly need and more. Very clean, pretty decorated, a fully equipped kitchen.... The terrace is phantastic - you even have a view on the Sagrada Familia from where you can start Touristic Bus Tours to make your life easy. Arturo was taking care perfectly and was so kind and supportive. He even provided welcome water and beer :-) You could not wish for more. I would always come back and can 1000% recommend this place!
