About this listing
There is always a good reason to come to Barcelona. If the apartment is booked just click under my photo: find out more about the host. then click see the whole profile. on the left you will be able to see all our 10 flats!!!
If 007 were to stay in a flat in el Born, it would be here! This penthouse studio is an incredible example of creative living, offering comfort, form and function in equal measure. For all it's conceptual antics, Le Petit Penthouse has been featured internationally in magazines and on local television.
The compact interior with it's clickable cabinetry and pop-up fixtures contrasts splendidly with an expansive roof-top deck with a lounge to lay down.
We gonna guide you through the flat on how things work. So dont worry about that!
THE FLAT COMES WITH:
air condition, 2 terasses, a crazy amazing outdoor bathtub for 2 people with a view to Sagrada Familia and the rest of Barcelona.
washing machine and dryer, and a very sexy rainforest shower in the center of the flat...
best views! Pretty overwhelming. The flat was selected for 2 Book releases: "NEW BEST APARTMENTS" and "ROOFTOPS"
NO elevator on the 6th floor. It´s a total of 100 stairs!!! But think of your leg and butt shaping! People do stepaerobic in gyms. You can get that here for free! AAAaaand: believe us: the view is worth every single step...
The bed disappears under the elevated balcony. So be aware that you have to push it in and out. ACCCTIOOON!
The building was constructed in 1794. But that flat was completely redone in 2010. So the building and the flat offers quite a contrast!
Best for Modern couples..
Take in the old city from high above it's medieval rooftops, or loose yourself in the maze of streets below where you'll find a bounty of local boutiques, galleries, bars and cafes with plenty of transit options, museums, markets and the Mediterranean just a short walk away.

Hello and welcome to my home!
I am thrilled you picked my place out of all the hotel and apartment choices Barcelona
is offering. My team and I will do the best to make it a wonderful stay.
1. THE BEST IS NEVER TO OPEN THE DOOR NOR ANSWERING IF SOMEONE IS BUZZING
2. YOURE ON HOLIDAYS: PLEASE RESPECT THAT NOT THE WHOLE BUILDING IS. No noise
after 11 p.m.
4. ENJOY YOUR STAY and HAVE FUN
Nous avons passé une petite semaine chez Titi. L'appartement est superbe et la terrasse est le clou du spectacle! Une vue à couper le souffle! Titi nous a accueilli très chaleureusement.
Cependant il faut apporter quelques observations à cet appart.
Cet appart n'est accessible qu'aux grands sportifs car situé au 7e étage ss ascenseur et les marches sont très hautes. D'autre part il n'y a pas d'ombre sur la terrasse et sur le balcon ce qui limite leur utilisation la journée. Il n'y a pas ou très peu de prise électrique dans l'appartement. Le wifi était quasi inexistant quand on y était malgré les efforts de Titi pour y remédier. Enfin il y a très peu de lumière sur la terrasse pour pouvoir profiter d'un apéro ou d'un diner la nuit tombée. Nous avons du acheter une lampe.
Malgré ces points le séjour fut réussi!
This review should not reflect the very friendly service that Titi provided during our stay. She was very nice and very helpful and definitely tried to make sure I stay was nice.
I took quite some time researching the perfect place. The location of the apartment is indeed perfect and we did not mind the 104 steps.
What surprised us though was the following...
- lots of dust on the furniture upon arrival
- shower drainage problem (we mentioned to Hazel, but he said this was due to the house being old; interesting is that the sink drainage was absolutely fine.
- the cushions of the sun bed on terrace were covered with black stains
- shower head was covered with calk
- calk stained dishes
- water heater moldy
- dust, dust, dust
The list could go on. In addition, for people that may not be interested in an active nightlife, be aware that the neighborhood can be quite noisy.
Overall my feeling is that the price we paid vs what we got, did just not match. I Know cleanliness can be a minor attribute, but it really made a difference for us. The terrace was one of the main reasons I booked this place and I sat up there once. It just looked so dirty, very uninviting.
My recommendation to the team there is that they need to make sure they keep this apartment in better shape. It has absolute all the things to make it amazing, but the cost, needs to makes the expectations be high.
The apartment was nice, with a unique 360 city view and apartment layout. Good location, central to everything, with good bars and shopping within a 5~10 minute walk. The Wifi worked very well. Lots of tight narrow stairs so travel light (not recommended for older people). The main negative was the water which we were surprised was not mentioned in other reviews - the water pressure was extremely low and drainage was very slow (i.e. shower takes over an hour to drain per person, and it was near impossible to wash hair etc....) which made showering, using the bath on the rooftop, and general water usage painfully inconvenient. Otherwise the apartment was generally good. The service was very good - Titi waited for us after we had problems navigating to the apartment, and was helpful with local information.
Had a lovely couple of days at Petite Lego. Taxi was arranged for us to and from the airport. Check in was simple and quick and host kept in contact with us throughout our stay. Location was great - within easy walking distance of all major sites and bus route. Lovely roof top terrace made it a great place to relax in the sun after a day's site seeing. Would definitely recommend it.
The rooftop studio is unique!
Great views of the entire city landscape.
Hanzel and Titi were informative and available via either email, whatsapp etc.
There are a lot of stairs, we travelled fairly light, so carrying luggage wasn't too bad.
There area is great, short walk (10 mins) to the famous La Ramblas.
Great food (tapas bars) options nearby and streets are lit up brightly at night, so you feel safe walking.
The rooftop is a good place to chill, if you're not by the beach!
One of the most incredible Air Bnb apartments you are likely to find. In an ideal location for bars/food/tourism/fun in Barcelona. Outstanding host, made us feel very at home and provided everything we needed & more. Great use of space and what must be the best rooftop view in Barcelona! A++++
We loved our stay here so much. The apartment is so clever but the view from the roof is what made this apartment so special. You have to walk up a lot of stairs so be prepared but it is worth it. You can literally see everything, all the main tourist attractions just from your roof! Very relaxing to lay on the sofa on the roof with that amazing view.
The area is nice as well, lots of nice restaurants and bars. It is also only a few minutes away from parc de la ciutadella, which is a beautiful relaxing park in the centre of Barcelona. One of my favourite places in the city!
Titi was very welcoming and provides lots of information.
We would 100% recommend staying here and we hope to come back!
