About this listing
Centric attic at the Barcelona’s Eixample. It’s 10 min walking to the emblematic Ramblas, 15min walking from the Catalunya Sq and the same distance to Spain Sq (Fira de Barcelona- Fair). Or 3 min by metro to Paseo de Gracia or 8 min to Sagrada Familia.
The magnificient terrace is designed to enjoy, there are two areas, chill out and table to eat outdoors. Barcelona’s weather is warm and you will enjoy almost all year. But if it gets cold, you have living room, with an open kitchen where you can keep a conversation while cooking what you get in the fresh marked just downstairs.
The apartment is in a 1900 building, has 2 double rooms, both with double bed, very sunny and with views, as the rest of the attic.
The apartment is full equipped, from air conditioning and heating to dishwasher, microwave or Nespresso Coffe machine. And special details like Wi-Fi, DVD player or a Hi-Fi system where you can plug your iphone to listen music inside or in the terrace. All to make you feel comfortable!
It is placed in one of the most interesting areas in town, the famous chef Ferran Adrià and brother Albert recently opened the Tickets restaurant and attracted a lot of other chefs to the district. Cool spaces live together with the most traditional Barcelona.
The Sant Antoni Market supplies fresh food the working days and on Sundays, people from Barcelona come to immerse to the magic old book fair. Then, the “vermut” aperitif is the perfect celebration for a special day.
The aerobus stop (Urgell) is at 3 streets. And 3 metro stations at 3 min (L1, L2 & L3). But the apartment is close from everywhere and you will walk everywhere.

The apartment was very nice and modern. It was in a perfect location, around a 30 minute walk to the beach or to the main attractions. The terrace was great for evening drinks and is sunny for most of the day. Mires answered our questions quickly and was helpful. We would definitely return to this apartment if we came to Barcelona again.
Although Mires wasn't available she arranged for someone to be present for our check-in at a time that suited us for which we're very grateful. The apartment was in a perfect location to access everything we wanted to in Barcelona and was also a really nice, relaxing place to come back to/start off the day. The facilities were great and the terrace was really special. We'll be back!
Mires was so friendly and the place was fantastic. She has done this a while so she knows how to treat guests. We felt very comfortable and it is a great area. Safe and great restaurants nearby. Especially the one across the street called "Bar Granja". Family owned, fabulous service and food - I think under appreciated. Go there and get the jimon sandwich with a glass of red wine to die for. I appreciated that Mires showed us how to use washer. The place was very clean and quiet. And of course the terrace!!!
Wir hatten eine prima Woche in Barcelona - und daran hatte auch das Apartment von Mires großen Anteil:
es liegt super in einem sehr interessanten Viertel, das alles bietet, was man braucht - es ist sehr zentral, so dass wir uns ganz Vieles "erlaufen" konnten.
Und der Obst- & Gemüseladen nebenan hat tatsächlich (fast) immer geöffnet ;-)
Das Apartment selbst ist funktional eingerichtet, die Schlafzimmer sind klein, aber in Ordnung. Die Küchenausstattung ist ein bisschen dürftig, die Terasse dagegen ist fantastisch (wenn es dort auch andere, etwas weniger ansprechede Möbel hat).
Mires ist nett, kümmert sich bei Bedarf und ist als Vermieterin unkompliziert.
Kurz: das Apartment bietet eine prima Voraussetzung, sich eine tolle Stadt anzusehen und sie aus der Nähe zu erleben.
We stayed in this apartment for 4 nights and was very happy with our stay. Arriving early in Barcelona it was nice to be able to drop our bags off before check in time, Mires' sister met us there and was very welcoming. The appartment met all our expectations, with a high standard and very "fresh". Comfortable beds and lovely shower. The sant antoni market is under construction work which is a shame, but the apartment has a great location with short walking distance to everything central. Loved the balcony, where we enjoyed breakfasts with fresh bread from the bakery three doors down the street, and nice quiet evenings after a day of sightseeing and shopping. We would gladly come back to this apartment.
A tip for other visitors from scandinavia is that the cooker works opposite way, so 1 is highest and 6 is lowest when turning on the hob, good to know if you wanna boil eggs in less than an hour ;)
Mires was a fantastic host and the apartment was perfect for our weekend in Barcelona. When we arrived Mires was very helpful in recommending places to go/things to see etc. The apartment is in a great location, so close to everything but quiet in the evenings should you wish to escape the hustle and bustle. The roof terrace is an added bonus, we enjoyed sitting out there in the evenings and having breakfast in the mornings. There are several bars near the apartment serving the most delicious tapas, if you stay there I highly recommend a walk around the surrounding streets trying out all the different tapas. We will definitely book it again. Thank you Mires for letting us stay!
We had a wonderful week at Mires' apartment. Mires was there to greet us when we arrived. It was great to be able to coordinate so we were able to come directly from the airport. The apartment is in a great location--close to several Metro stops, a huge market, wine stores, super markets, bakeries, and a little vegetable shop next door that always seemed open! We dropped our stuff and dashed off to the bustling Saturday market scene. What a great way to meet Barcelona. The apartment was perfectly fine. Simple and tidy. The terrace was the highlight. We had most of our meals on the terrace. The furniture was a little different than the pictures, but it was fine.
About the Host, Mires
I am happy beeing in Barcelona. I just regret not to be from abroad to discover again my city. I'd love to discover Barcelona again, always...
I'm also from Paris and Lisbon, where I lived. And I feel that I have a life to live in NYC and in Rio de Janeiro.
I enjoy spending time with friends with wines and good food. Isn't great to walk to the beach at noon? or the sunny days?
Soy feliz de estar en Barcelona.
Bueno, quizás lamento no ser extranjera para descubrir de nuevo a mi ciudad. Me encantaría descubrirla otra vez, siempre.
También me siento de Paris y Lisboa, donde he vivido trozos de mi vida. Y tengo una vida pendiente en Nueva York y otra en Rio de Janeiro.
¿No es maravilloso pasear por la tarde en la playa? ¿Y los días soleados?
