The Space

In November 2014 we were featured on the international architecture and design blog- design trawler. To view the post and pictures type into your search engine " design trawler grand hotel barcelona".

We were lucky to find the apartment completely un- renovated with everything just as it was built in the c19th. Our mission was to keep the soul and retain as much as possible.
We have collected the furniture and objects from the shops and markets of Barcelona and the decor is constantly being added to- each piece with a story- we will write some of these out for you soon!

Guest Access

The whole apartment is for rent- 80sqm with two double bedrooms, bathroom and with over half given over to the kitchen, dining and living space. Very light and airy, the apartment takes up the entire floor, with terraces to every room. The dining and living room looks south, a suntrap in the low mid winter sun but shaded in high summer- it's our favourite spot to forget the TV and look into the world in the large courtyard (think 'Rear Window').

Interaction with Guests

I rent the apartment when I am away, so unless we meet on my way in or out, you will meet one of my friends who will make sure you have all you need.
If you want to know or do something in particular, please call or email either before or during your stay.

The Neighborhood

Raval is our favourite barrio- right in the heart of the old city-Cuitat Vella- but still full of locals and independent shops, cafés, galleries, bars and restaurants as well as some of the main sites- Gaudi's Palau Guell, MACBA, the Liceu Opera House and of course the Boqueria market- where the neighbourhood still goes to shop (enter from the Raval side avoiding the tourist Rambla entrance).
We are always discovering new places, and want you to discover yours- but if you want a list of our current favourites just let me know!

Getting Around

The apartment is three minutes from the L3 Liceu metro stop on Las Ramblas, taking you in a couple of stops to the Sants railway station, Park Guell, Gracia and Paseo de Gracia- but you will walking to most places- beach, shopping, eating etc.
The bus from the airport- more frequent, faster and cheaper than the train- takes to Placa Catalunya in the centre- fifteen minutes walk down Las Ramblas or on tube stop- to our home.
Cycle hire is cheap and fun, with cycle lines everywhere.
Buses nip through the old city, connecting out to the beaches and new city.

Other Things to Note

The Flat is on the third floor.
Please note that for late check-in, from 11pm, there is an extra charge of 25 euros, and 45 euros after midnight
