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.

Irene was most welcoming and provided good advice on use of her apartment and on places to experience tapas away from the tourist bars. Her apartment was as described and bed was very comfortable. Irene even arranged a 5am taxi for us. Thank you very much Irene - we would stay with you again if back in your lovely city.
It was as the pictures show and Irene was a wonderful host. She showed us everything there is to know about the apartment and was very accommodating. I would love to stay here again if I come to Barcelona. We really appreciated the complimentary espresso!
Irene's place is great!!! Clean, comfortable, great location, good area with local restaurants. It was only a 10 minute walk to the old town. Throughout Irene's communication was great and she offered us an amazing experience for a trip. Highly recommended!!
Irene Varela kann man nur als kompetente und sehr freundliche Gastgeberin bezeichnen, die für uns als Gäste viele gute Tipps parat hatte. Bei Problemen hätte man sich auch telefonisch an sie wenden können, aber die gab es nicht. Das Apartment entsprach unsren Erwartungen vollkommen und konnte sowohl in Ausstattung (gutes Bett, Induktionsherd, sauberes, elegantes Bad, W-Lan) als auch vor allem durch die Superlage überzeugen. Alle wesentlichen zentralen Punkte Barcelonas (Rambla, Altstadt, Hafen, Strand, Restaurants) waren fußläufig zu erreichen. Das Haus war sicher, sauber und vergleichsweise ruhig gelegen. Wir würden diesesApartment zu jeder Zeit wieder gerne buchen und können es es nur weiter empfeheln.

Nous avons mon amie et moi très apprécié cet appartement idealement placé dans le centre de Barcelone. A quelques minutes à pieds des Remblas et à 2 min d une station de métro.
Irène est très accueillante et toujours prête à faire de son mieux pour satisfaire ses locataires.
Si nous devons retourner à Barcelone, nous retournerons sans hésiter chez Irène.

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
