The Space

I am pleased to offer you my newly refurbished 1870’s apartment, which is ideal for couples, families and friends that are looking for beautiful, spacious and high-quality accommodation that is within walking distance of Barcelona's major attractions.

CENTRAL LOCATION: The apartment is perfectly located for easy access to the city's main tourist destinations, from Gaudi's famous modernist buildings, to the trendy medieval neighborhoods of El Born & Gothic (South). Within a 15-minute walk you can be in Plaza Catalunya, Las Ramblas and Passeig de Gracia (West), La Sagrada Famila (North), Parc Ciutadella, El Born or on the beach in Barceloneta (East). If you don't want to walk, the metro and buses stop within a block of the apartment. There are restaurants, cafes and grocery stores only a few steps away - so you will never go hungry!

EXPERIENCE BARCELONA'S FAMOUS MODERNIST ARCHITECTURE: My apartment is on the top-floor of a prestigious Eixample corner building, so it has lots of sunshine and an amazing view. It also has a marble staircase and a beautiful antique wooden elevator with passenger seats to effortlessly take you to the fifth floor.

STYLISH, UNIQUE, COMFORTABLE ACCOMMODATION: I recently refurbished the apartment in a way that highlights the classic grandeur of the building and the colorful floor tiles for which Barcelona is world-renowned. Throughout the flat you will see unique pieces of furniture and decorations combined with new high-quality furnishings to give you a sense of the original style in a contemporary setting. The apartment is big (150 sqm), it has high ceilings and a large living room and dining area that seats up to 10 people (nearly 30 sqm).

FOUR SPACIOUS BEDROOMS: The four double bedrooms range in size from 12 to 16 sqm. Two of the bedrooms have adjoining doors that can be closed and therefore are suitable as separate rooms or perfect for parents with smaller children who want easy access. All beds have extra wide queen-size Somma confort mattresses (160 x 200 cm / 63 x 80 inches). There are three double beds and two single beds (can be pushed together as a double. Every room has full-length double doors leading onto the balconies, big wardrobes and closets and a unique and fun decorative style.

TWO LARGE BATHROOMS: There are two bathrooms, one with shower and bath, and one with a standing shower. One bathroom can be closed off and function as an ensuite to one of the bedrooms.

FULLY EQUIPPED KITCHEN: that includes a dishwasher and a washing machine and all the necessary utensils etc for up to 8 people.

  • Perfect Stay.
    Charles is very welcoming and very helpful.
    The apartment is just great. Very well located, pretty large for a family of 6, very clean.
    A little noisy but not a problem.
    Wonderful week-end, we are recommending Charles' apartment to anyone who's looking for a comfortable stay in Barcelona.

  • Great place to stay!! Super close to everything, yet quiet also. We came to Barcelona to visit our daughter who is studying here. The apartment was perfect and more then comfortable for the 5 of us to stay together. Charles was terrific, he arranged pick ups to and from the airport and gave excellent suggestions of where to go, eat, etc...
    Would definitely stay here again! Thank you Charles!

  • Although not meeting him in person, our host Charles kept an eye on us; supported us in every aspect. The photos of the apartment exactly tells what to expect. Very happy for having stayed there. We tried some of the venues in Charles's notes that he has left for us and very satisfied with them all.
    Knowing that there's always someone that you can get in touch makes the life easier. We highly recommend this lovely apartment and any other place hosted by Charles!

  • Fantastic location and great host. The apartment is spacious, clean and very well equipped. Charles was a great host and very accommodating. Would highly recommend.

  • My family and I had a great stay at Charle's place in Barcelona. We were seven adults and one infant, but had plenty of space and were very comfortable with all the amenities. In additional to the great interior, the location was within walking distance of all the major sights in town.

    Charles was very responsive and helpful with everything from obtaining a baby cot/crib to restaurant recommendations. We would definitely stay again on future visits.

  • My parents and my sister accompanied me for a three night stay in Barcelona, and Charles' place was one of the best parts of the trip. The space itself is roomy, clean, attractive, and nicely located roughly equidistant from most places you would want to see. Charles was very attentive and prompt, and met my family at the door. Couldn't have asked for more: as recommended as they come.

  • Beautiful old apartment with funky antique furniture and balconies overlooking the street. Very spacious with four huge bedrooms and a great central living room. Good neighbourhood and only 50 metres to Tetuan metro station - easy to get to all major attractions. Our host was away but passed keys on through the housekeeper so we were able to check in as soon as we arrived in Barcelona. We had a very pleasant stay.

    December 2013
  • When we arrived at the apartment we were looked after by Steffan as Charles was away. The apartment is as described and in a great location. The beds are really comfy and the place was clean with fresh flowers, fruit and plenty of clean towels provided.
    On our last night my daughter (24) had food poisoning and was very sick for 6/7 hours throughout the night and early morning. We were scheduled to leave the apartment at 10.30am but our flights were not until early evening. We had planned a day of activities before our departure but my daughter was too exhausted & unwell to do anything very much at all. Charles arranged for her to stay in his own guest room in his apartment, we were so grateful. His kindness and generosity went above and beyond the call of duty and Steffan took great care of us. It meant the rest of the party were able to continue with their plans knowing she was able to rest and sleep in comfort until departing for the airport. I'd highly recommend Charles and/or Steffan to take care of you and you're sure to have a wonderful stay in this lovely apartment in beautiful Barcelona.
