Glorious flat in the very heartbeat of Barcelona in a modernistic building of the renowned pedestrian street Portal de l'Angel. Stunning design with a just a sip of Balinese touch and a completely equipped kitchen/bathroom.
I m p o r t a n t n o t e : last years cancellations occurred due to restructuring works in our building, which have been completed at the time. This to mention that there are no risks of cancellations this year. :)
You will be renting a brand-new, huge 3 bedroom flat with 2 private bathrooms in one of the most impressive modernistic buildings.
Strategically located in the very pulsing center of Barcelona, my flat is at one minute from Placa Catalunya (you can see it from the balcony), at few minutes walking distance from Passeig de Gracia, Born area, Museo Picasso and the beautiful Parc de la Ciutadella, close to the beach and metro and surrounded by pretty cafe terraces.
Perfect for couples, small groups or independent travelers, Portal de l'Angel is the ideal, strategic base from which to explore Barcelona, according to Fodor's.
We are experienced airbnb hosts and take guest satisfaction very seriously. Whatever you need; from fresh sheets to restaurant recommendations or local insights, we're on-hand to help however we can.
• A bright, contemporary lounge with a comfortable sofa and a large day-bed (perfect for a well earned siesta after an epic day of tourism) as well as a coffee table right next to it (can't get more "siesta-lazy" than this). Large set of double doors open out to balconies overlooking Portal de l'Angel and Placa Catalunya. Just throw them open and let the glorious sunshine in (the apartment is full of light from dawn until sunset)! There is a big crystal dining table which six seats (great for long dinners with good wine).
• High Speed Internet: secure WiFi signal 24/7
• Kitchen: A clean and bright, fully fitted kitchen with all utensils, crockery and spices - just in case you get the urge to experiment with fresh ingredients from the excellent Santa Catarina food market at just a few steps away.
• Kiddies: For guests traveling with children, we are happy to provide information on stuff to do with kids of different ages in Barcelona and recommend a good babysitter.
Note: For more detailed information please just click Amenities above.
All bedrooms are large, bright, clean double rooms fully heated in the winter, with double beds and comfy tempur mattresses. The master bedroom has it's own private en suite bathroom. There is also a second bathroom with a shower and bathtub, WC and large sink. There are always fresh white sheets on the beds and a big pile of clean white towels in the bathrooms.
Literally just around the corner is Placa del la Catedral, the amplest and liveliest square of the Gothic District, the scene for the display of the main events of Barcelona such as La Mercé and the weekly Antique Market as also meeting-point for most locals for a lazy afternoon. Spread around with sunny cafe terraces, street artists and historical sights, this spot in front of the beautiful 14th century Santa Eulalia Gothic church is where all the magic happens! The apartment is also just a few minutes walk from the beach, the Picasso Museum and the lovely Parc de la Ciutadella as well as most of the city's famous historical buildings and museums (see map). Some of Barcelona's nicest cafe's and tastiest restaurants are all close-by. There are also two metro stations just a few minutes walk away, the nearest of which is Placa Catalunya.
FROM THE AIRPORT: The easiest way to get to the apartment is simply to jump in a taxi outside the airport which will cost around 30€. The cheaper version is to jump on the blue AeroBus from the airport (7€ - leaves every 15 minutes) until the the final stop Plaça Cataluña. From here, we're at just 2 mins walk down Portal de l'Angel.
BY TRAIN: If you are arriving by train, the lovely Estación de Francia is around 5 mins of stroll from the apartment. This is also an excellent transport link to get to the beaches and some enjoyable day trips outside the city, for example, pretty Sitges, the Dali Museum in Figueras and the breathtaking monastery in Montserrat.

Just came back after a great experience of BCN life... Everything went well and smooth.
The appartment is perfectly located near the Cathedral in Barrio Gothic... It's in the middle of all the nice neighborhoods and all on walking distance.
Nice and clean bathroom and beds were fine.
Roberta gave us some great tips to have dinner and where to go out ;)
Thanks for the experience and fun and we will see you next year for sure.
Adióssss a todos.
More than excellent location. You will not need even to take any mean of transportation. Every place is within a walking distance from the apartment. Roberta made us to make early check in for free. Great stay. Roberta was very helpful. She acts as a tour guide to make you enjoy Barcelona to the max. Roberts relied any inquiry on spot maximum by 2 hours. She serves breakfast.
Roberta's apartment was large, beautiful, chic and located in a great area in Barcelona..a main area where there are a lot of things to do and located 5 minutes away from the food market! It was amazing for 3 guests as we each had our own room but we hardly spent any time in the apartment. Had a great experience with Roberta as she kept in touch with us through out the trip to make sure we had things to do, knew where to go, etc. She was very sweet and helpful! I would definitely come back here to when I visit Barcelona again!I would recommend this place to anyone looking for a place to stay in Barcelona.
Location: excellent! Just steps from Catalunya, Rambla, Santa Caterina Market, Catedral. The apartment is very easy reachable by AeroBus from the airport - a minute walk from their stop at Catalunya. Metro station, Bokeria market - an easy walk, so in short - very-very central.
Surroundings: pedestrian street, shops (1 small food supermarket and shoes and clothes: lots of), restaurants and cafes - uncountable in the area (Gothic and Born - steps, Raval and Gracia - a short walk, a decent tapas bar and Pans fastfood just downstairs, buildings are historic, no traffic, icecream - tasty).
At the entrance - a bank where you can print the tickets for Sagrada Familia bought online to avoid queues.
As for online - wifi signal lets watch stream video.
The beaches can be reached both by walk or metro, or taxi (from nearby Via Laetana to Nova Icaria - just 6 euros).
The apartment: 3! separate!! bedrooms!!! Very simple: each accomodates a double bed and wardrobe, but cosy. A separate WC and a separate bathroom with a shower and wc - no queues:) A separate kitchen with a washing machine and a (again separate!!!) living room with a small balcony overlooking nice surroundings. In the corridor thers's a dryer for the clothes. A hairdryer and an ironing board with an iron are provided.
To take into account: the apartment is located on the 3rd floor of an old building with marble but quite steep stairway but WITHOUT an elevator - mind this if this may be of importance for you. And no TV set - as for us - it was very good to have a break from TV watching.
Roberta is very friendly, welcoming and ask her to recommend you a place to have a drink, to eat or to go out - you'll be surely pleased following her recommendation. Check-in and check-out sharp and punctual, without wating. So, try to book her apartment and lucky you'll be to get it!
