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"

This was an excellent apartment. Irene was most welcoming, and the neighborhood was great. The apartment was impeccably clean.
I stayed at Irene`s place 4 night. The apartment is nicely furnished and it is clean. All details are considered with years of experience. I enjoyed staying at this good quality apartment.. I would like to note the sofa at the living room pics is replaced with two nice chairs (dont make plans basing on presence of a sofa). Overall, I liked my experience and I would definitely consider to stay here again.
Irene provided a clean and spacious environment situated very conveniently for transport, bars and clubs. She was very thorough with safety advice and her apartment is very safe and secure.

Irene's apartment was a wonderful base to explore Barcelona. With only a ten minute walk to la rambla and explore the markets it was great. The apartment was spacious clean and tidy and Irene had a comprehensive manual to help with all appliances in the apartment. In a secure building and great location, we only wish we could have been there longer so will definitely be coming back again soon! Thanks Irene for your warm welcome to our first trip to Barcelona.

About the Host, Irene
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
