The space

A stone's throw from Plaza Cataluña and Paseo de Gracia, you can take a stroll around the old part of town or simply go shopping to Barcelona's hip and fashionable Ensanche quarter.
The location is superbly placed for public transport either by bus or tube, also with a train station in Plaza de Cataluña. Nestled on a shopping area, it makes an ideal base for the business or leisure traveller as it is close to the tourist spots, but still a quite and safe place, strategically located between the Borne and Gothic quarters to enjoy the most popular city walks.
The apartment is set in a new building, creating a functional and comfortable place. Once we step inside, the feeling of calmness and the brightness of natural light are both the undisputed protagonists of this place. The small entrance hall leads straight into a fully equipped kitchen with an extending dining table.
The large living room has floor to ceiling windows with great views of picturesque ‘patios’, interesting buildings and all the natural light you can imagine. This room has a comfy sofa, a 24” TV and a single trundle bed. Draw the thick curtains to keep the sunlight out if you need a relaxing atmosphere.
The bedroom has two single beds that can be placed together to form a double and is fitted with ample wardrobes. It also features a spacious ensuite bathroom in marble.
Located in a convenient central position, in the southern part of the Ensanche quarter, where a perfect geometric grid features some of the best-known Catalan Art-Nouveau buildings. It is also only 50 meters away from Plaza Urquinaona and 200 meters from Plaza Cataluña.
The elegant boulevards of the Ensanche contain numerous shops, high-end designer boutiques and shopping malls, especially along the fashionable Paseo de Gracia, one of the liveliest and most famous streets in Barcelona, where you will find a great selection of bars, restaurants and cafes.
Heading towards the seafront on the right, you can visit the Barcelona’s Cathedral, several museums and old traditional markets or simply take a wander around losing yourself in the maze of these streets. However, walking to the left you will reach the bohemian Borne quarter, the imposing church of Santa María del Mar, amazing shops all around and streets all lined with beautiful old buildings.

We had a fabulous time staying in Virginia's apartment. We were there for 5 days with our toddler, and she was so accommodating of our requests for an early check-in and late check-out time -- this was a huge help with a little one who needed to take naps in the middle of the day…

Virginia’s place is wonderful. Exactly as described. The washing machine was a HUGE plus! The location is very central to great restaurants, La Rambla, the Gaudi houses (one of his first works as an architect, is viewable from the window). Speaking of the windows-they open wide …

(1) Virginia is an amazing host. She is warm and welcome and her restaurant recommendations are the best. Skip the tourist traps and eat where the locals eat with her recommendations. Or go to the grocery store one block down and cook in the apartment with provided cookware. …
