About This Listing
Cozy and sunny attic for 4 to 6 people. It has 3 double rooms and a big terrace. Central location, very close to Sagrada Familia Cathedral and metro and bus stations.
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.
Air conditioning in 2 areas
Electrical awning with remote control in the terrace.
Crockery, cutlery and all necessary cooking utensils
Coffee machine (Dolce Gusto)
Electric toothbrush Oral B (just need to bring the replacement brush heads)
Towels and linens
First aid kit
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.
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 License Number for tourist housing rent (HUTB-009976), 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
The law of the Government of Catalonia requires a Tourist Tax per person per and day to all travelers staying in a tourist establishment. However, tourists accommodated in our apartment don't have to be worry about this fee since it is included in the accommodation price.
Please, remember that you will stay in a building where other people are living their own homes. For us it is very important to respect the neighbours so we kindly ask you for responsibility and consideration about noise. Therefore the parties in the flat are not allowed.
We wouldn't like to charge any extra cost to our guests, so we ask for your cooperation and responsible use of the apartment.
If you will stay longer than five days, please water the plants.
Smoking is only allowed in the terrace.
According to the compliance with local regulations (Order IRP/418/2010, of 5 August), all lodging establishments are required to make a record of all the people and travellers who stay in the establishment. We therefore kindly ask to send us a scanned copy of the identity document (Passport, ID, etc) of every people who will be accommodated at the apartment before your arrival.
Hope you have a great time in Barcelona!
What a fabulous apartment, even better than the photos! Arturo and Fatima were simply lovely and made us feel quite at home.
The location is stellar, close to metro stations and groceries. We really enjoyed the deck. The beds were wonderful and we did not hear any street noise in the bedrooms. Highly recommend!
We highly recommend this flat. It was extremely convenient, literally 2 minutes walk from the Sagrada Familia and the Metro station. The flat was extremely clean and quite spacious. Everything we needed was there. It was very quiet at night. We could open the windows and let the breeze in when we sleep. The patio was a gem in the mornings and evenings. We would come back without hesitation.
Arturo was a great host, most helpful and informative. Flat is great and location couldn't be better, very close to Sagrada Familia. We had a great stay.
Kia ora Arturo.
There is a good reason Arturo has such wonderful feedback, the apartment has everything you could require, the terrace is an exceptional way to kick back, relax and soak up the atmosphere. It is close to the metro which will get you anywhere. Arturo was not available to meet us due to work commitments but he made sure his friend Olec was there to greet us and show us through the apartment. We are looking forward to our return in August.
Arturo hat uns persönlich im Appartement begrüsst aber schon im Vorfeld hat er uns per E-Mail mit vielen wertvollen Informationen versorgt. Bei ihm hatte man das Gefühl, dass er mit Leib und Seele Gastgeber ist. Das Appartement war genial gelegen, die Nähe zu Sagrada Familia wo es einen Taxi-Stand hat, die Metro-Station ist und die Touristenbusse abfahren. Das Appartement haben wir in vollen Zügen genossen, besonders die Terrasse. Man hatte das Gefühl niemand ausser wir wohnen dort, von den Mitbewohnern hat man gar nichts gehört. Wir würden wieder bei Arturo absteigen.
Arturo met me at the apartment at the agreed upon time, and was very welcoming. He took his time to show me around the apartment, explain how things work, where to find good restaurants, etc. The welcome drinks in the fridge were a nice touch.
The apartment is extremely well situated. It has easy access to the metro lines, and is very central, but the neighbourhood gets nice and quiet at night time, so you can still have a comfortable (and long) sleep.
We traveled with a baby and a 3-year old and Arturo was kind enough to leave us a baby cot. The 3-year old had his pick of the bunk beds, needless to say, he was very happy!
The apartment has all the amenities and equipment that one could want, and everything is in perfect condition. All the cooking equipment was in tip-top order and there were plenty of pots and pans, plates, cups, utensils, etc.
The balcony is a rare treasure, and we enjoyed comfortable evenings on it while the kids were asleep.
I highly recommend staying at Arturo's excellent apartment, and will definitely stay here myself again during my next visit to Barcelona.
Wir sind immer noch ganz begeistert von den 5 Tagen in Barcelona: tolle Stadt, tolles Klima und vorallem die perfekte Unterkunft für unsere Bedürfnisse. Sehr gepflegtes, großzügiges Appartement mit einer spitzen Außenterrasse, die das Urlaubsfeeling perfekt gemacht hat. Arturo hat uns schon im Vorfeld mit wichtigen Infos versorgt, hat uns im Appartement herzlich begrüßt, uns alles erklärt und weitere Tipps gegeben. Wir haben uns sehr gut aufgehoben gefühlt und hätten uns jederzeit bei Arturo melden können, falls Fragen, Probleme, etc. aufgekommen wären.
Super Vermieter, super Appartement + Lage, super Stadt.. jederzeit wieder :)
