Apartment in the center of Barcelona mixing historical elements such an intact roman arch with modern design, for up to 5 people, in the Born District, next to the beach, nightlife, history, museums, shopping. Free Wifi. Towels and linen included.

The Space

LIVING EXPERIENCE

Spectacular duplex loft suitable for 6 people, located in the charming Barrio del Born, in a unique corner of the city. It is very spacious and bright. It has a unique design, is very cozy and has all the comforts from home: air conditioning, heating, full kitchen, plasma TV, DVD, stereo ..., and with full integration of new technologies: high-speed Internet, Wi Fi, Apple TV and the video game console Nintendo Wii + Wii Sports for leisure or for children.

Because of its exceptional location, it is very suitable for families with children or couples, for fine cuisine lovers, art and history lovers, for night adventurers, students, or as a base camp for business.

It is an alternative with advantages over a traditional hotel.

AN APARTMENT WITH CHARM AND HISTORY

The apartment has been renovated and furnished in a contemporary and modern style by a famous architect. It was published in prestigious national and international decoration magazines. The eighteenth-century building is a marvel, full of history but completely restored and updated, keeping historical elements and combining them with cutting edge elements.

On the top floor is the reception hall, created in a glass capsule, which gives light and visual access to the entire apartment. Then is the lounge area where we have a 3-seater sofa, a table and a cabinet support for TV 42 ', DVD and Nintendo Wii console. This sofa is also a comfortable sofa bed for 2 people. Across the room, we go to another room separated by glass that leads to the dining room. The dining room has a white table and 6 design chairs. Also, this area is widely used for working as an office, since it is situated on a higher altitude so you can observe the entire apartment.

Also on the top floor there is a master suite bedroom with double bed. It has a shower and a bathtub. All integrated in the same room, they create a piece of exquisite design.

The entire top floor has a spectacular panoramic view, as the rooms are divided by large crystals anchored from floor to ceiling. You can make this stay private by using the blinds.

From the top floor we go down some comfortable design steel stairs, that lead us to another space - an office room opened to the kitchen. The kitchen, even though small, is fully equipped with all appliances and is very functional. This room gives us access to a spectacular bathroom which has kept original architectural elements of the Roman era: a fabulous Romanesque arch which is a marvel of history in this apartment. This magnificent arch is integrated in the bathroom. On the other side of the room, you have a room with two single beds and a very large dresser/ wardrobe, with plenty of space for several suitcases and all clothing.

The house has many wardrobes and other items.

Ideal for one or more couples, for a young family, or a group of up to 6 friends.

TECHNOLOGY

The apartment is equipped with the latest technology to make your stay more rewarding and intense: high-speed ADSL, Wi-Fi, Apple TV and an Apple Wireless Keyboard to enjoy the best contents and movies without leaving the apartment, or hear your music and watch your pictures on the TV directly from your iPhone or iPad.

GOING OUT

The apartment is located in the center of Barcelona. In the famous and glamorous Born district, in the Gothic Quarter, where today there are currently workshops and art exhibitions, fashion designers establishments, specialty shops, graphic design studios and great terraces and restaurants offering a variety of dining options.

The apartment is on the route of modernism, so it gives the area an aura of romanticism. Right next door is the Palau de la Música, a gem of modernist architecture, designed by Domenech and Muntaner, a follower of Antonio Gaudí, the famous architect of the Sagrada Familia. Also, next door is the Mercat de Santa Caterina, a meeting place for the locals to shop for Spanish delicatessen like the great Iberian ham, or enjoying the terraces while admiring the modernist architecture.

A few meters away is the majestic Cathedral of Barcelona, ​​hiding in the surrounding streets, - the medieval part of the city filled with palaces and ancient streets, with quaint antique shops, small bookstores, romantic fine restaurants, and bars, where from the terraces you can hear the ringing of the bells. It's like traveling to another century.

After a few minutes walk we find the busiest shopping street of Barcelona, ​​Portal de l'Angel, where large fashion brands compete with the selected long-lasting boutiques popping between the beautiful facades of the nineteenth century. If you follow the street to the Plaza Catalunya, you see the beginning of Paseo de Gracia and Las Ramblas, the latter (email hidden)ly promenade which houses the wonderful Boqueria market, kiosks with flowers, curiosities and living statues throughout your journey to the port, where the big shopping center "Maremagnum" with cinemas, restaurants, cafes, clothing stores, footwear stores, toys, perfume and other products is. Behind it are the Aquarium of Barcelona ​​and the "IMAX."

But if what you like is the beach, walking from the apartment and passing near the Estacion de Francia, the "Zoo" of Barcelona and the charming Ciudadela Park, you come to the Barceloneta beach, a beautiful urban beach where you can sunbathe or swim in the warm waters of the Mediterranean during the day or enjoy the best fashionable bars and clubs at night. Just in few meters you will come to the Olympic Port, where you meet people of all nationalities.

Also, if you like football and want to see FC Barcelona in their natural habitat, the Nou Camp, if you want to watch live the best players in the world, Messi, Piqué, Valdés, Xavi, Iniesta, Villa, Puyol and Fabregas , the legendary "dream team" that Pep Guardiola created you can access within minutes by subway from the apartment.

The apartment is really well connected with all types of public transport such as subways, buses, tourist bus and has a public car park just next door.

Not far away by car is the Ronda Litoral, the highway going from one end of Barcelona to another.

BARCELONA

Barcelona, ​​capital of the Mediterranean, in the region of Catalonia, northeast of Spain.

You can also visit a few hours by boat the Italian island of Sardinia.

FOR WHOM?

For its capacity, the apartment is suitable for families, groups of friends, for Erasmus student, ESADE, EADA, IESE, IE, ESERP Esic, Icade, Deusto, German School, French School, British School, and others, who need temporary accommodation. It can house several colleagues from the same university.

  • Great location and beautiful apartment. Beds could be a bit more comfy and AC needs to kick in to heat up place. Would stay there again.
    A lot of glass so you give up some privacy for design.

  • Our family of four (2 sons in their 20's) had a great stay here, with enough space to have privacy and also hang out together. The location is terrific, within easy walking distance to bars, restaurants, and neighborhoods to explore. Close to public transit and taxis. Easy communication with host, who provided informative guide to the city, with helpful suggestions.

  • Un vacanza perfetta, viaggiando con mia moglie e le nostre due bambine ho scelto questo appartamento ben ubicato comodo per raggiungere qualsiasi punto di Barcellona. L'appartamento ci è piaciuto fin dall'inizio, piccolo ma moderno e dotato di ogni confort, compreso della consolle Nintendo wii molto apprezzata dalle mie bimbe.
    Il proprietario è molto gentile e disponibile e le risposte alle nostre domande arrivavano quasi in tempo reale.
    Ringrazio il proprietario per averci supportarto tutto il periodo, lo consiglio a tutti anche per famiglie, la zona è sicura anche la sera.

  • A beautiful apartment in a perfect location. Very close to the sights, as well as a great and friendly bakery, other shops and restaurants. As a family we enjoyed the privacy of having one bedroom upstairs and one downstairs, plus two full baths -- and WiFi! It was a pleasure working with Roberto -- all in all an excellent experience. Highly recommended!

  • Fantástico! La primera vez en Barcelona… pero seguro no la última. Muy lindo. El lugar increíble. Muy céntrico. Tiendas y restaurantes al lado, y el mercado. Muy tranquilo. El departamento tiene todo como para estar en casa. Cómodo, espacioso, limpio. Sorprendente lo de la muralla histórica dentro del apartamento. El agua caliente de la ducha no funcionaba muy bien al principio, y nos cambiaron la caldera inmediatamente por una nueva! Todo perfecto!!! Gracias Roberto por tu hospitalidad y rapidez… , y a David que nos explicó muy bien sobre la ciudad.

    Hola Jorge, gracias por tu reseña tan positiva. Nos alegramos que hayas disfutando tanto en nuestro apartamento y en la Ciudad. Sí, lo de la muralla romana intacta dentro del apartamento es algo único que tenemos el privilegio de tener. Sentimos lo del incidente con el agua caliente, pero que bueno que pudimos solventarlo rápido. Para nosotros una experiencia positiva de todos nuestros huéspedes es nuestra mayor prioridad. Le daremos tus recuerdos a David!!. Hasta la próxima.

  • Very well located duplex, in the heart of Barcelona. An easy walk to all the important monuments. A lot of Gaudi buildings around. The apartment is very nice and cool, we loved the modern design mixed with the historic well kept elements. Quiet and comfortable. Very well equipped, the Apple TV was very handy. Roberto is very friendly and was always available. Everything worked perfectly. We will definitely go back again.

    Hello Andrew, thank you for your very positive review. We are very happy when our guests have a great time, enjoy our apartment and the city. You were the first to stay in our apartment after some little renovations we made and we are happy you could feel and appreciate them. We hope to have you back soon.

    January 2014
  • L'appartement est très bien situé, et charmant, fonctionnel, très design. La rue peu passante fait que le calme est présent. Ce lieu est idéal pour un couple, l'open Space offrant peu d'intimité... La climatisation reste un peu bruyante la nuit.. Et attention à l'utilisation du ballon d'eau chaude... Nous remercions David pour son check-in plein de bonne humeur... Et Roberto, disponible par téléphone pour sa réactivité sans faille...

    Response from The Punset Family:

    Hello Laurent, thanks for your positive review, we are glad you had a good time. We will let David know you were happy with his check in. The boiler apparently has comed to his last days so we will change it, the technician was there but it can not be fixed. And the noise you heard was from the fan of the extractor we are working on that too. Thanks for letting us know.

  • This flat has been well designed to maximise the space available on ground and basement floors. It is intriguing with a quirky layout (eg clear glass partition and see through blinds between main bedroom and main living area - not ideal for those sharing with anyone they are not pretty good friends with!) The flat is great for family of 4 but less ideal for 2 couples and definitely would be a squash for 6. The decore is now a little tired and would benefit from a coat of paint and new floor covering. The furniture in the living areas is not of the same high quality as the design which is a pity. The kitchen is well appointed with machines but the crockery/cutlery etc reminded me of student days - limited mix and match. The location is great with everything we wanted to see within easy walking distance. Fantastic market around the corner. In conclusion, with a redec and some better furniture, this would merit the highest of accolades, as it stands it provides a reasonable base for a short stay.

    Response from The Punset Family:

    Hello Christina, thanks for your review, it is always very important for
    us our guests feedback. We are very glad you liked the design and the
    location. Since your review we have changed the sofa bed from the living
    room, gave the apartment a coat of paint, varnished all the wooden decks,
    painted the stairs, fixed the floor, and we bought new crockery/ cutlery.
    We are very sorry you did not found the apartment at its best, but it is
    very difficult to catch up. We would have to paint the apartment every time
    a short reservation leaves, since guests are not very careful with the
    apartments. The same with the furniture, as you can see on the photos of
    the design magazine we appear on, (which we posted on our pictures on
    Airbnb) they are all from very high quality, but all of them got broken and
    nobody assumed they did. So it was not easy for us to replace a very
    expensive chair or element so often. I hope you understand. And again
    thanks for your feedback, and we are glad you had a great time.

    January 2014
  • Great apartment in perfect location. The apartment is exactly as described, and Roberto was very responsive throughout our stay. I would stay here again on my next trip.

Our apartments are really special and are full of soul. Suitable for all those who want to enjoy their holidays, feel at home on a business trip, or take advantage of everything the city has to offer due to their exceptional location (something that students thank us a lot for). These are apartments with all the amenities, isolated from noise while being in the very center of the city. Equipped with all the necessities: from WIFI connection, essential for taking advantage of the city and planning the day before leaving home, to a wine-opener to uncork Spanish wine and savor it slowly after a long day. . . Our way of being brings us closer to the people. We accompany them throughout the whole process, from the moment of booking until the check out. We give them advice according to their preferences and enrich their stay so they can make the most out of the city and, of course, the apartment. We keep them updated from our weblogs on all the news, events, and dates not to be missed. We have open channels in social networks for consultation and suggestions, and they can benefit from the experience of others who have already enjoyed our services before. Our apartments are a more human and personal alternative to hotels. The direct and constant attention, as well as a new home in the city makes us your best option. Have a good trip and we hope to see you soon!!!
