As every seasoned traveler knows, the key to tasting the true spirit of a city is to skip the crowded, over-priced hotels and opt for a local alternative. Finding these allusive gems can sometimes be difficult, but there’s good news for tourists heading to Barcelona this summer. Whether seeking a romantic get-away or planning a family vacation, our gorgeous Modernist Terrace II is a completely refurnished and luxurious penthouse located in the heart of Barcelona.
The apartment is located in a building cataloged as an esthetic and historic emblem of Barcelona. Its neighborhood has even been coined the “Golden Neighborhood,” since the 18th century Catalan aristocracy built their residences using the modernista style in this very district!
Though our apartment is near all the tourist attractions right in downtown Barcelona, the building itself is very quiet and comfortable. The windows are constructed with double glass to obstruct noise and keep the apartment warm. Its street is very active and joyful during the day but extremely quiet at night since the building has only nine apartments consisting of residences and commercial offices; one could even sleep with the windows open at night without being disturbed! All the tenants know each other, and the building even has a concierge during office hours. In addition, there are no neighbors adjacent to the apartment and the floor below is an office, so the quiet comfort of the Modernist Terrace II is a real treat for those who want to rest after a long day of exploring the city.
The Modernist Terrace II has 2 double bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a relaxing massage chair, a fully equipped kitchen, a stylish dining area suitable for up to six people, a big living room with large glass windows (where the gorgeous sunlight enters every day!), and, of course, a beautiful and scenic terrace with chairs to lounge and sunbathe.
Our apartment is just a short walk to the best Barcelona has to offer – Plaza Catalunya, las Ramblas, Portal d'Angel, the Gothic Quarter, el Bourne, and la Boqueria market. This luxurious accommodation offers those who like to travel in style a tranquil reprieve from the hustle and bustle of the city without missing out on any of the action.
Old-world style meets modern life in this completely renovated apartment, with the perfectly preserved 18th century façade of the building.

We had an enjoyable stay in wonderful Barcelona and really enjoyed the comfort and character of this flat. The turtles living on the deck were an a special treat for the kids, who enjoyed feeding them. For anyone with turtlefobia, they tend to spend the day hiding unless you coax them out with vegetables.
The flat has great character and was very comfortable and quiet. It was nice to hang out on the deck at night and enjoy wine and tapas. Short walk to La Rambla and easy to flag a taxi outside if needed. Directly across the street from a grocery store.
Arian was an excellent host and a great conversationalist. He was waiting for us when we arrived and we enjoyed a coffee together before we left. The kids have since asked how was doing on a few occassions since we left, so he left a positive impression on them as well.
Thanks to Arian for the hospitality!
The reservation was canceled the day before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Wir wurden von Arian sehr freundlich empfangen, eine Flasche Wein, Soft Drinks,Kaffee und ein Obstkorb standen zur Begrüßung bereit.
Das Appartement liegt in einem wunderschönen Haus mit einem beeindruckenden Treppenhaus,in einer ruhigen Seitenstraße. Man kann auch in der Nacht gut mit offenen Fenster schlafen.Die Gegend ist sehr sauber und sicher, Metrostation 1 min.zu Fuß entfernt, auch sonst sehr zentral gelegen, so das man auch wirklich alles sehr gut erreichen kann.
Das Appartement selbst ist sehr orginel, allerdings gibt es einige Punkte die man wissen sollte und die in der Beschreibung nicht so deutlich wurden.
Das Appartement hat wie beschrieben 2 Schlafzimmer, wobei das eine Schlafzimmer als Durchgangszimmer zur Küche dient,. Das bedeutet,wenn sich morgens schon jemand früher wach wird und einen Kaffee trinken möchte ist es etwas schwierig .Außerdem hat das Schlafzimmer auch kein eigenes Fenster, Frischluft kommt nur über Bad, Küche oder Wohnzimmer.Hat aber eine air condition.
Das zweite Bad hat keine eigene Steckdose, auch ist der Lichtschalter sehr hoch angebracht , so daß man mind. 1,65 cm. sein muß um ihn zu erreichen.Auch fehlen Haken um die Handtücher aufzuhängen.
Die Terrasse ist sehr schön und wir teilten sie uns mit mind. 6 Schildkröten.Diese wurden von uns gefüttert(Arian stellte das Futter zur Verfügung)und mit Wasser versorgt.Ist vielleicht auch nicht jedermanns Sache, v.a. da die Schildkröten auch mal ihr Geschäft auf der Terrasse hinterlassen(ist aber sehr wenig). Nichts desto trotz ist es sicher keine artgerechte Haltung!
Insgesamt aber wirklich ein orginelles, schönes Appartement mit toller Terrasse, allerdings etwas in die Jahre gekommen, einige Renovierungsarbeiten sind nötig.
Da wir an einem Sonntag an-und abgereist sind kam noch ein Zuschlag von jeweils 25 Euro dazu. Bei dem doch recht hohen Grundpreis des Appartements , fanden wir das etwas überzogen.
Beim Check-out kam es auch zu einigen Unklarheiten.
Wir sollten um 11:00 das Appartement (website hidden) kam aber keiner um uns den Schlüssel abzunehmen. Einfach den Schlüssel im Appartement lassen war aber nicht so einfach, da man die Appartementtür nur mit dem Schlüssel zusperren konnten. Also mussten wir die Wohnungstür offen lassen als wir gingen. Eine besser Absprache wäre schön gewesen.
Wir haben einige wunderbare Tage in Arians Wohnung in Barcelona verbracht. Er ist ein sehr angenehmer, aufmerksamer Gastgeber. Alles hat perfekt funktioniert. Ich kenne Barcelona bereits seit vielen Jahren, es ist sehr schwer eine zentrumsnahe, ruhige Wohnung mit Terrasse zu finden. Genau das haben wir nun entdeckt.
Sehr zu empfehlen!
The apartment is just as lovely as in the pictures, although we didn't actually get to stay there until the third night of our visit. Right before we arrived, Arian informed us that we would be moved to another of his apartments because he was allowing the previous guests to check out late and doing some repair work. The other apartment was fine, but not what we would have chosen. We also had a disagreement about what refund we would receive--the other apartment was significantly cheaper, although Arian appeared to be unaware of that and initially offered a "discount" that was more than the listed rate of the apartment we were staying in. That was ultimately resolved, but was very frustrating. Arian's apartments are lovely, and he is himself extremely friendly, but for the price I would have expected more professionalism.
We enjoyed our stay at this well-located apartment. Arian is very nice and helpful. The flat is in a museum-quality Barcelona Modernisme building with an amazing lift, entrance and stairway. The flat itself is a contemporary build on the top floor, and is decorated in a funky style. My favorite thing about the flat is the way the main bedroom with glass walls leads on to the terrace which is wonderful. The second bedroom is not as exciting as the one on the terrace, so you might fight over who gets the best bedroom if you are sharing! It is quite expensive, but if you love a great piece of modernisme, a bedroom on a terrace and the company of some excellent turtles, it's worth it
