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..

The flat is tiny but the people who stayed say it is a lifetime experience! And yes, we agree!
Great place. Titi (who welcomed us) was a very caring host. The little penthouse had an amazing view which makes up for a long climb of stairs :)
A great little apartment that offers an absolute unique concept. A tiny room with a great terrasse and rooftop. Perfect for couple looking for a nest for the weekend! But be prepared for the climb in the tiny staircase typical of the building in this area.
The location is great, and Titi was perfect to welcome us, and always helpful. I strongly recommend.
Very cool apartment with amazing 360 roof terrace. The apartment is very compact, but practical in every way. When the weather is good, you'll be spending most of the time on the roof terrace, for sure. It's located in a quiet street, and being on the top floor, you're above the city noise. Metro and taxies are just near by. Small grocery shop across the street. We liked the place very much, and would love to stay there again next time !
All the best V & G !
Nice place! dont worry about the stairs, anyone who stays in old europe knows you get used to it after a couple days! The place was very interesting in set up with 2 really nice terraces. Unfortunatly I was staying there at the wrong time of the year and the cold winds and rain made the top terrace unusable. There were only 2 problems.
There was not nearly enough hot water in the tank to fill the outdoor bathtub (only fills 5 - 10 cm) so its more of a summer tub. Also the clothesline was next to impossible to locate. Only finding it on the last day! ITS THERE, you just have to be creative with your looking :) Up near the washing machine on the top terrace there is a small rectangular device on the wall.. when I asked my girlfriend what it was she looked at it and said "a light i think".. then when she touched it, it pulled away from the wall and the clothesline we had been looking for all week unveiled itself in all its glory! Too bad we had to have our clothes laying out all over the terraces during sunny episodes and hanging from every edge and corner within the flat when the sun disappeared. Even when I contacted the host it was as though she had no idea where the line was located as it was explained to me it was in the box the seat cushions were in.. obviously i did not find it there!
All in all 4/5 a couple small problems but the view made the place worth considering again in the future.. maybe in the summer ;)
The penthouse was as described and it definitely was a hike to get up with large luggage.... But the view was amazing!
Just wish we were there in the summer so we could have used the outside space more.
titi the host has great, she met us at the flat and even recruited a neighbor in the building to help with our bags.
Overall, a great experience!
This apartment was AMAZING!!!! The view of the balcony was beautiful. The designed of the apartment was AMAZING!! Located in a trendy neighborhood of el Born, everything was so close to us. This apartment is really special and worth every step. Our stay truly felt like a vacation and I would recommend it to anyone. Thanks to Hanzel and Titi were great and easy to contact. Titi in particular was super helpful in giving us information about the city, the flat and even helped book a taxi for our departure. LOVED our stay!
-Stayed in Nov. 2013
This was one of the most unique experience we ever had. Award winning design apartment with a roof top hot tub and outdoor bed you can enjoy the roof top view in Barcelona. It is very conveniently located. Titi was super nice and very helpful.Thanks for everything, Titi!
This definitely was a highlight of our trip.
What a place to end our 2-week vacation in Spain!
What a stay! We loved this apartment and the position it is located in. Close to El Born and the Gottic lane ways and fabulous restaurants. You won't be disappointed. This apartment really sealed the deal for us with our trip. You don't often get a penthouse with balcony and rooftop to yourselves. We would sunbake each morning and have our breakfast up there as well as some antipasto at night in the bath there. With 360 degree views of Barcelona it is hard to leave the apartment. Yes there are 106 steps but seriously most of a Europe has stairs. We found we climbed them once a day as we would make the mist of being out and about. The AirBNB description of the place is perfect and Hanzel and Titi will make you feel welcome. They were also very accommodating and patient with us as we were unsure of our exact time of arrival. They worked in with us the whole time. Seriously no need to look for another apartment as this one is the one you will love. We would stay here again in a heartbeat.
Hanzel's place was nothing short of incredible. We were greeted by Titi, the property manager, who is super sweet and helpful. She provided tons of info about the neighborhood and city and was extremely responsive whenever we needed something or had questions. The photos don't do the space justice...the views from the rooftop are spectacular, and the interior is more spacious than it seems. Everything about this listing, from the well planned and appointed decor to the outdoor garden tub to the rainfall shower, was wonderful. We even grew to love climbing the 100+ stairs many times daily :-) Last but not least, the location is awesome, on a quiet street with a lot of restaurants and shops but only a few minutes walking distance to the heart of El Born. We'll definitely be staying again!
The flat was great !!!I really enjoyed it , the views of Barcelona where amazing from the terrace which has a outdoor bath . This flat is definitely for one person or a couple being that the shower is all glass and in the main room. Besides 100 steps stairs I had to clime every day this flat was great and I recommend it.
