About this listing
Quaint and cozy penthouse apartment on the fifth floor (with elevator until the fourth) very close to La Sagrada Familia and The Sant Pau Hospital, in the center of Barcelona. Nice and safty neighborhood with very good transport connections.
It's a small but very cute and confortable attic. In the main space you can fine the couch (wich is the third bed) and the diningroom and kitchen together, it has two windows overlooking the terrace. There is also one spacious doble bedroom with a desk near the window. The bathroom is very complete.
We have wifi, washing machine, cofee machine. You can use all the space, including the shared terrace where you can have a fantastic view of the street Avinguda Gaudí, with the Hospital de Sant Pau in one side, and La Sagrada Família in the other.
I like to relate with my guests. I'm willing to explain the secrets of this wonderful city (at least, the ones that I know), even I would like to join them to go visiting Barcelona if they want to.
The main street is Avinguda Gaudí. It's a pedestrian streed with lots of shops and restaurats around. It's very quiet and nice.
There is a big SUPERMARKET called Caprabo, it closes at 21.00h and it's not oppened on sundays. But if you want to buy something later, there's little supermarkets that closes at 23.00h.
You also can fine all kind of bars and RESTAURANTS (spanish, italian, exotic..).
If you look for SHOPPING, maybe this is not the best neighborhood. There's some small familiar shops, but there's no brand shops.
If you want to GO FOR A WALK you have some nice parks around.
You also have a CINEMA a few streets from the apartment.
The METRO is two minutes walking from the apartment. It's Hospital de Sant Pau/Dos de Maig Station (L5), but Sagrada Familia Station (L2) and Guinardó Station (L3) are very close too.
Infront of the apartment there's a BUS STOP that can bring you to any part of the city.
Maybe you prefere to take a TAXI. You will find them infront of the apartment too.
Pep is the perfect host!!
He explained where can we go to eat, buy some foods and even the special flamenco show~!!!
We had a great time in Barcelona especially it was a festival days :)
Thank you so much Pep!!!
This apartment was lovely. We were greeted by Pep who gave us a quick briefing of the place. It's on the fifth floor but there's a lift. It was exactly how we imagined it, the photos are very accurate. On the first day, the oven wasn't working but Pep came over straightaway and fixed which was very efficient. It's less than a five minute walk to the Metro station so it's very easy to get around. The roof terrace was our favourite. It's shared by the whole apartment building but I don't think anyone else uses it so it was like our own little private place! We had breakfast up there many times and you have a wonderful view of the hospital as well as Sagrada Familia at the other end. Everything was wonderful, we had a great time here and Pep was very helpful if we ever needed anything. I would definitely recommend this place. It's a perfect cosy little apartment for two although the sofa in the living room/kitchen could easily be a bed - it was so comfy! And there was also a spare mattress to use. Everything was clean and in good condition - there were plenty of guide books and maps to look at too. The area is very quiet and peaceful which is nice compared to the loud city centre. There are plenty of restaurants to go to. We recommend BelleBuon and Hollyburg but there are many places to eat on the walk to Sagrada Familia. We really enjoyed our time here and want to go back already!
The apartment was the perfect location. We able to walk everywhere. The 92 bus one block from the apartment brought us right to Park Guell. The apartment was clean and organized.
The apartment was comfortable and well equipped, the view at top floor balcony is really great. Just like description of Pep's website, you can see the Sagrada Familia at top floor. Thank you Pep~~ :)
Very nice apartment, hosts were very thorough in making it clean and was very close to great sites in the city. Amazing view from rooftop!
Clara and Pep's apartment was perfect for my stay in Barcelona. The location is great and close to sites as well as subway stations so you could get anywhere really easily. The road it's on has tons of restaurants so it's easy to find a place to eat near by, and the area felt really safe, even walking alone at night. The apartment was really cute and had air-conditioning which was great. I didn't meet Pep but Clara was really friendly and accommodating checking me in. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone thinking of going to Barcelona.
Listing was perfect for my stay. Lovely terrace and great location. Clara was very accommodating.
