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.
We are waiting for you in Barcelona!

Had a great time at the apartment! Mires was a great hostess, apartment was exactly as described. Perfect size for our stay and we loved the deck, spent almost every night out there. Views were fantastic. Her sister welcomed us and gave us the tour when we arrived. She provided a nice list of places to visit and the distances and gave us a list of restaurants as well. When we noticed an issue with water on the bathroom floor the first day, I reported it to Mires and she sent someone to fix it came over more than once to make sure that it was ok. Felt very safe in the neighborhood and the building. Very close to many attractions either walking or via the subway. The Mercat de Sant Antoni is right across the street and it provided excellent choices for food to bring back to the apartment. Also many different small grocery, bread and pastry shops very close by. We tried several of the neighborhood restaurants and they were all good. Loved the tapas at the large bar on the corner by the Mercat. Overall, a great experience and an excellent location. Would absolutely stay here again!
Ein schöner 4-tägiger Aufenthalt in Barcelona, nicht zuletzt wegen der Wohnung von Mires, in einem ruhigem Haus, im 5. Stock mit Aufzug. Die Einrichtung ist ordentlich, die Küche für längere Aufenthalte etwas unvollständig ausgestattet. Direkt vor der Haustür Markt, Geschäfte und Gastronomie. Die Gastgeberin empfahl uns ein kleines Restaurant "Bar Ramon" direkt um die Ecke, tolle Atmosphäre, gutes Essen, wir waren 2 x da.
Die Lage erlaubt es, fast alle Sehenswürdigkeiten zu Fuß zu erreichen.
Super Unterkunft - sehr zu empfehlen!
Die Übergabe verlief sehr speditiv, freundlich und zuverlässig.
Die Wohnung liegt zentral und ist trotzdem sehr ruhig. Der Balkon ist super schön. Alles war sauber und zwecksmässig eingerichtet.
Great place - highly recommendable!
Very uncomplicated, fast and friendly check-in.
The apt is located close to sights such as the Ramblas but still quiet. The balcony is awesome!
Very clean an well furnished apartment
Appartement très agréable. Les photos sont fidèles à la réalité. On y dort bien. La terrasse est vraiment géniale !
L'accueil a été très sympathique. Je conseille cet appartement sans problème. Tout peut se faire à pied. Il y a un parking à proximité si on vient en voiture. Le métro est à côté.
Mires is an excellent host, greeting us with two sets of keys, and providing everything you ever need in the apartment, so you don't have to spend your precious fair or tourist days buying. We even have found two bottles of wine: a red one in the kitchen cabinet and a white one in the refrigerator, as recommended. She also generously approved 4 hour extension of our stay, since our flight was in late afternoon, while next guests were coming tomorrow. The location of this apartment is close to perfection, at walking distance (15-30 min) to many attractions in Barcelona (Fira de Barcelona, Magic Fountain, Cable car and gardens of Montjuic, Botanic garden, Palau Güell, La Rambla, Barcelona Cathedral, Rambla de Mar, Casa Batlló, Casa Milà), while for the others (Sagrada Familia, Hospital de la Santa Creu i Sant Pau, Park Güell, Ciutadella Park, Barceloneta beach) one can either walk, as we did, or use nearby metro stations (L1 Urgell, L2 Sant Antoni or L3 Poble Sec). Two bedrooms are so quiet that you can't imagine that you are in the city center. Like everybody else, we felt in love with views from the spacious terrace, both in the morning and at night. Three air conditioning units and three electric radiators are of a real help, if you need them. The airport is also 15 minutes away, so you can hardly miss your flight, while paying almost a minimum taxi fare. Of course, 6 days are insufficient for visiting everything interesting in Barcelona, so we will definitely come in the near future, and of course, book the same apartment, well in advance, since it quickly becomes fully booked during high season.
A lovely apartment. Both bedrooms were of a good size, with lots of space for clothes. Both indoor and outdoor seating areas are very comfortable, and it is a very secure building (with a lift). There was a very unpleasant smell in the bathroom however, and there seemed to be a leak, either from the toilet or the shower, which was only satisfactory. Also, in the kitchen, the kettle was not working. But apart from that, we had a lovely stay in this apartment - it's fit for purpose. It was very nice to enjoy the views from the balcony with drinks and food purchased from the shops / bakery less than 100 yards away from the front door to the apartment - a very nice neighbourhood with a large market and lots of little tapas bars. As long as the bathroom is fixed... I would thoroughly recommend to anyone and everyone!
Great apartment, exactly like it's shown in the pictures. The neighbourhood is lovely and central, the rooftop terrace is sunny and very nice for both breakfast, midday and evenings (there is contruction work on the San Antoni market just across the road atm, but in the middle of a city like Barcelona you will probably not find many quiet outdoor spaces anyways, so it didn't bother us). The bedrooms are quiet and nice, and the apt. was clean and well equipped. We were met by Mires' sister who was very welcoming though we arrived a bit earlier than scheduled, and she told us everything we needed to know about the apartment and the area. The only thing we didn't quite like was that we were asked for a photo of our passports, which feels a bit unsecure considering personal data, and we have never had to do that before when using Airbnb accomodation. But all in all we loved it here, and will definately recommend it to others!
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?
