The apartment is in a new building, completed in 1997 and has a lift. It has a spacious living-dining room with kitchen, beautiful solid parquet oak floor, one nice-sized bedroom, and bathroom all in white Italian marble.

The most salient feature of the apartment are the two very large double glazed French windows, one in the living/dining room, the other in the bedroom, which open to the branches of the elegant "plataneros" (maple trees) which line both sides of the street.
And this is why I call the apartment "PLATANEROS"

Irene was a great hostess. After booking with her last minute due to some scarily bad reviews I read on the place we were originally supposed to stay, Irene was happy to step up and be our host in Barcelona. The flat was very clean and well maintained in a central
location close to the metro, las ramblas and Placa Espanya. Her communication was excellent and she was waiting for us when we got in. She advised us of places to eat close to the apt and we easily made friends with one of the tapas owners downstairs. The only downside was no wifi, but she said this will be fixed by October. (A pay as you go sim with 1gb of data was 15 euros, no biggie) We loved our time in Barcelona and would happily stay here again. Thanks, Irene!
We have stayed in Irene's flat for 5 days from 10 July; the flat was very clean and pleasant, well located for public transport and turist attractions, marina is 10 min walk away, you could get to Barceloneta beach by bus D20 in 15 min (30-40 min walk). Everything one need on holidays was there, coffee maker was a bonus; there are some restaurants around the flat, although we mostly ate closer to tourist areas. Irene is very hospitable. Recommended!
We spent a wonderful time in Irene's appartment. We were there for 4 days. Irene was very flexible with arrival and departure time, thanks a lot to her ! The appartment is very nice and clean, 10 min walk to Las Ramblas, 3 min from the nearest metro station. We recommend ! Thank you Irene !

My boyfriend and I spent a weekend in Barcelona and were very impressed with Irene's flat in Parallel. It was nicely decorated, very clean and well furnished with everything we needed (including a guide-book to Barcelona!). Irene seems very friendly too and was flexible about our awkward arrival and departure times. We highly recommend this flat to anyone visiting Barcelona.
Our big family just had a great time at Barcelona! It was pleasure staying in this place.

I booked Irene's apartment for family members and they had a wonderful time. The apartment is perfect, very bright, cheerful, impeccably clean and pristine. Lovely glass windows in both the living room and bedroom that bathe the apartment in light, with lovely trees just on the outside. Lovely bathroom, all in marble. And Irene was absolutely lovely to them. Most impressed!
