Bright quiet apt CENTER like local

Apartment - Entire home/apt · Carrer de Rocafort, Barcelona, Catalonia 08015, Spain

Stay at a typical Barcelona neighbourhood and be close to the tourist area. Feel like a local with walking distance from a lot of must see places!

The Space

It's a 4th floor with lift/ELEVATOR, all exterior, making it very fresh and bright. The LIVING ROOM is spacious, with parquet flooring. It has 2 sofas, one of them is a "relax" sofa, where you can lie-down, stretch your legs comfortably and watch a movie or listen to music. Ideal after a long day's walk: chill out and watch a film in the projector. We have a large variety of films for you to enjoy! Or you can plug-in your own computer/disk.

There are 2 bedrooms and they're double sized with double beds. They have parquet flooring, wardrobes with shelves and rod hangers and bedside tables with lamps.
They're next to 2 beautiful balconies. One is accessed through the living room next door and it leads to a very large space at the heart of the block, thereby avoiding the annoying street noises.
The other one leads directly to a smaller, quiet balcony.

The KITCHEN is extremely spacious and fully equipped: fridge-freezer, oven, microwave, coffee maker, toaster, blender...
It's fresh thanks to its window. It has a table for breakfast comfortably. We love offering courtesy tea (wide variety), coffee, spices and more! There's a separate LAUNDRY ROOM.

The BATHROOM is bright, with shower cubicle and bidet.

Thanks to the large windows everywhere there's a lovely breeze, even in the hot summer months. Additionally, there's a fan provided and AC in the living room.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

    highly recommend to all traveler

  • Virtually everything about our experience in this apartment was great. Claudia responded to all communication quickly and informatively. We were on our honeymoon and she left us a nice note, some flowers, and a bottle of champagne. The apartment looks just like all the pictures and is well-located within easy walking distance to most sights and to public transit. It is clean and well-supplied. As other reviewers have said, the bathroom is small by American standards, but it is perfectly functional (there's an occasional weird odor, but the bathroom is very clean and there's a window, so that's not a big issue). We would highly recommend this apartment to Barcelona visitors.

  • We spend a nice long week end at Claudia's place, which is exactly as advertized : extremely quiet (which is very important in the buzy city), with a nice living room, a videoprojector (didn't used it but love the idea) and a big kitchen area.
    The situation is really good, 1 block 1/2 from the subway stop that connects greatly to everywhere in a few stops, and 20-40 mn walking to the historic center.
    And Sofi who welcomed us was very nice !

    March 2014

  • We recently stayed in this apartment and found it to be very comfortable and very well equipped , a real home from home! It was easily reached by public transport from the airport and a warm welcome was waiting for us. Claudia was an excellent host and was on hand to offer advice on making the most of our stay.We only had 3 nights here and fully intend to return and explore more of this beautiful City.

  • Claudia and her apartment were perfect for our Barcelona stay! Claudia welcomed us to her apartment and sat with us to fill us in on the best places to eat and visit during our stay. The apartment was perfect and a great place to relax in between sight seeing. It was nice and quiet and easy to get around from!
