Situated in one of the best areas in Barcelona, 10 minutes walk to Las Ramblas and also a short walk to the historic centre, museums, restaurants, shops and markets, and night life of Barcelona. Excellent comunications with public transport, only one minutes walk to Parallel metro station, on metro lines 2 and 3, Fira Barcelona (Plaça d' Espagna) only10 minutes walking or ideal for World Mobbile Congres and also great bus connections, including airport bus. The neighbourhood is residential and pleasant, with lots of shops, supermarkets, restaurants and terraces, and very close to the artistic Raval and Parallel neighbourhoods.
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 apartment is nicely furnished with characteristic wooden furniture, including two wooden chests and has a large flat-screen TV, The kitchen area, in grey stone and white ceramic tiles has a three ring electric hob, with overhead extractor, microwave/oven, washing machine, fridge, electric coffee maker, toaster, oven-microwave.
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"
Apartment is available for 2 people,with one bed in the room is spacious and confortable and always very clean.

Nous tenons à remercier Irène pour son chaleureux accueil. Les commentaires élogieux à son égard qui m'avaient incité à choisir son appartement étaient tous conformes à la réalité. L'appartement était très propre, le café pour la machine espresso offert. La situation de l'appartement idéale, dans une rue calme et pourtant à 15 minutes du centre historique, de la Ramblas et de la mer. Je recommande chaleureusement, l'appartement et l'hôtesse pour tout celui qui lira ce commentaire. Encore merci à Irène pour ce séjour dans sa magnifique ville de Barcelone.
El departamento de Irene es muy agradable, impecable y bien situado en la ciudad.
Es ideal para una pareja.
Bel appartement très bien équipé et propre. Le wifi fonctionne très bien. Merci à Irène pour sa gentillesse et sa disponibilité horaire très souple lors de notre arrivée et de notre départ hors des horaires habituels.
We arrived a little late, but Irene was very flexible. The appartment lived up to our expectations entirely. The location in Barcelona is ideal and within walking distance of most of the major attractions. The building is a recent construction and well finished.
We would certainly consider staying with Irene again on our next visit to Barcelona.
Irene was a lovely host who warmly welcomed me into her quaint apartment. The close Metro station made it easily accessible to any destination in Barcelona you wished to see.
Apart from there being a slight distuption in the mornings from the glass pickup trucks on the saturday, the apartment held all the amenities that were needed for a comfortable stay; Even though we did not spend much time in the apartment it was a lovely, clean and comfortable place to return to after a long day of sight seeing.
Very nice flat located near the central area of Barcelona. Was 3 minutes from the subway. Wonderful hostess.
Nice flat in a good location, very clean and comfortable, Irene was very helpful. Would use again!

I am from the North of Spain, in the Atlantic coast , but I am living in Barcelona for the last 30 years. I also was living for 2 years in London and 6 in Madrid and for 2 months in Paris. Before I worked in a travel agency during many years and the last 3 years I rent my flat. I visited several countires in Europe, and another continents . But I love see people happy and I really wish when you visit my apartment feel like that and enjoy and discover this lovely Barcelona with centuries of history, the beautiful architecture and the sweet mediterranean life.
I really like to meet people from another countries and cultures and share oppinions with them and Airbnb gives me the opportunity of it.
I hope see you soon to spend a lovely time in this town
