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!

La principal norma es que disfrutéis.
Todo esta pensado para que os sintáis bien, como en vuestra casa, por eso esperamos que tratéis todo con la misma delicadeza que lo haríais en vuestra casa.
No está permitido fumar ni en casa ni en la terraza. Tampoco se aceptan barbacoas.
Nunca hemos tenido problemas con los vecinos y apreciamos mantener una buena relación con ellos. Evitar la música alta u otras cosas q puedan molestar.
This was an excellent experience in a wonderful part of Barcelona. Close to metro, food and shops.
The apartment is delightful, everything you need. A the cherry on top is the terace.
Lovely and brief welcome.
Nice place, friendly host. This apartment is well located - we loved the neighborhood! It is right next door to a local market that is not overrun by tourists and has yummy food. The highlight of the apartment is the terrace, which unfortunately we didn't use that much because it was raining during our visit. Mires and her sister were very friendly. The apartment is well furnished with kitchen appliances.
Mires and her Sister are great hosts, the appartment was clean and as outlined on the pictures. The terrace is truely amazing and the furniture invites to relax and enjoy the view. The Location is perfect to discover Barcelona and I can recommend to stay at Mires' house.
We had an amazing week in Mires' apartment which is ideally located and features great interiors with an absolutely stunning balcony/roof terrasse! The apartment was clean and quiet, there are many shops located nearby as well as a metro station. Placa Catalunya is only 10-15 mins walking distance.
Absolutely positively 100% recommend this place!!!
Thanks Mires to accept my stay. It has been a dream to have such an apartment and specially such terrace at the heart of Barcelona, we had all dinners in there, great views!! And fresh outside shower!. We had no problem at all, everything worked, very clean and new and the rooms and apartment was exactly like the pictures. It was a dreaming experience. I really hope have the chance to rent it again very soon again!
CAN NOT RECCOMEND!
First,the good things...
The appartment is in a great ,quiet location. Close to transport, supermarket. .AND A GREAT TERRACE!
UNFORTUNATELY THE APPARTMENT (IN MY OPINION )WAS NOT CLEAN,UNHYGENIC.
THE FURTNITURE ON TERRACE HAVE BEEN REPLACED WITH FURTNITURE THAT IN MY OPINION WHERE LESSER QUALITY.THERE WAS DUST AND HAIR AROUND THE PLACE, THE INSIDE OF FRIDGE WAS STICKY WITH MARMALADE, AND NOT SURE WHAT ELSE. .FINGER PRINTS ON glass door to balcony. .the main bedroom seemed ok. Second bedroom , the bedframe was instable,and the mattress old and uncomfortable.the host of the appartment was 6hours outside of Barcelona. Her sister gave us the keys. She was helpful, that was all good.we contacted airbnb about the hygiene and the bed. The host called us back,saying she is sorry. She sent somebody over to clean again, and the bedframe was fixed. The second cleaning was done while we were out and about. When we came back, it was still dirty (hair at same spots, sticky fridge. ..)the bedframe was stable, but it didn't change the fact the mattress was old and uncomfortable . under the bed was used tissues, condoms, dust and underwear...after many talks to airbnb we got a compensation of 200 euros. .it wasn't about the money for me, i rather would have had a great home. .
I am extremley surprised to read now what you found under the bed, and I found very souspicious that you just mention it on this review and you never told me, we spoke several times on the telephone. Why did you ever mentioned this? or neither you reported this to airbnb? Very suspicious...
This review is completely unffair, you told as the apartment was not clean enough, and we asked the cleaning team to pass again on saturday at 21h. (less than 2h from the complain)
My sister checked the apartment before you arrived and it was clean.
You also complained about the bed, I made someone go to fix it in less than 30 minutes. I asked them, they were 2, if they found the apartment clean enough, and they said: definetely yes, shinning!
I was also speaking with airbnb, this was the first time facing a guest complain and I did not knew how I was supposed to react.... I had the right to ask to leave the apartment, and I probably this is what I should did.
Are doing all this to have a discount?
Why are you on this mood?
This is completely (website hidden):Regarding the outdoors furniture, we replace it every year, it is exposed all the time to sun, rain. The current outdoors furniture is three times more expensive than the previous one.
Wir waren eine Woche in Mires Wohnung, alles hat gepasst. Wenn wir fragen hatten konnten wir sie sofort kontaktieren (Das war uns sehr wichtig) sie war immer sehr nett zu uns. Die Schlafzimmer waren gemutlich, wir haben gut im Bett schlafen können, auch war der Platz im Zimmer ausreichend. Ein Highlight waren die Klimaanlagen und die Geschirrspülmaschine. Küche, Bad und Wohnzimmer waren sauber und beinhalten die notwendigsten Utensilien. Also als Gesamtergebniss würde ich sagen dass es an nichts gefehlt hat. Die Terrasse war auch sehr toll, wir haben sie jeden Abend beim cocktails trinken genossen. Dein Atico ist zum weiterempfehlen! ;)
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?
