Quaint top floor flat with large terrace one block from Paseo de Gracia and Casa Batlló in the very centre of Barcelona. One block from metro station Paseo de Gracia (the airport line) and 4 blocks from Plaza Catalunya and minutes walking from all shops and supermarkets.
The building is a typical Eixample building with a porter who works mornings and afternoons Mondays to Fridays. She sits by the main door and keeps an eye on who enters and leaves the building during working hours. The area is highly sought after, the building is on the same block as the Mandarin Oriental hotel. There is a cafe/restaurant at the street level of the building and you can walk to the major tourist areas within minutes. The beach is an approx 20-25 minute walk although there are city buses that pass in front of the building that go there as well. There are many bars, cafes, restaurants, tapas bars nearby. The area is one of the safest at night.
The terrace has a lot of plants, views of the Sagrada familia and a Weber gas BBQ. The flat has an electric water heater. It is not a large heater and it is necessary to wait for it to reheat before a second shower can be taken.
If you wish to book, please ensure you have posted a photo of yourself to your Airbnb profile. If your account has no previous feedback, please send a description about yourself. Available to people aged 26 and older.
This flat is perfectly located in the centre of Barcelona. We only stayed three days in this beautiful city, but took as much time as possible to enjoy the broad, awesome sun-terrace. John is very helpful, gave us a lot of recommendations and is also very quick in answering requests and questions.
all in all this is a place to stay!!!
John's house is perfectly located in the centre of Barcelona. John's bed is big and very comfortable, the shower is excellent, although with two people you have to hurry a little to not run out of hot water. Last but not least, John's communication is quick, friendly and helpful. The only point of attention for us would be that the apartment can get a bit cold. We were in the apartment at the end of December, John has heaters everywhere though, so not a problem, but some people might find this a little uncomfortable. Would recommend this apartment to anyone!!
Localizacion excelente de este atico que corresponde exactamente a la descripción. Agradable terraza, fácil acceso à Internet, perfecto para una pareja.
John es flexible y fiable, respetuoso de sus huéspedes. Eficaz cuando se trata de responder a cualquier pregunta. Una buena y agradable estadía que probablement se repetirá.
Our stay was a couple nights prior to a cruise. We have visited Barcelona previously and are familiar with the area. This apartment is located in the heart of city center amidst restaurants, shopping, hotels, and banks. It is an active night life area. This apartment is on the top (4th) floor and the patio overlooks the city. A beautiful view. The primary Barcelona sites can be viewed at night from the patio. John was an excellent host The building is quiet and the street becomes quiet at night. We will stay there again on our next visit to Barcelona.
The flat was very well situated with a nice terrace. We enjoyed to stay at this flat. John was very kind, and very helpful. He gave us many recommendations for restaurants that we tried and were not disappointed.
A place to stay !
Séjour magnifique au coeur de la capitale. Barcelone est une ville vivante, festive, ouverte. L'appartement est vraiment à une rue du passeig de garcia qui est très touristique. De nombreux commerces sont à proximité. Un appartement très convenable pour les vacances à 2 ou 3 avec une terrasse phénoménale. John est un hôte, très disponible et sérieux.
I would like to thank John for the great wellcome,lovely and homy place,John is very considerate and helpful host,we enjoyed staying in his apartment and we definitely will come back:)
Highly recommend... We didn't meet John on our stay, but he was very helpful before we arrived with details on where we should go and answered any emails we sent during our stay pretty much instantly. The apartment was lovely. The roof terrace is incredible and we spent most afternoons bbq-ing our purchases from the nearby food markets. The apartment is brilliantly situated and close to all the attractions, we never had to get a metro for anything. Next Barcelona trip John will be the first person I contact.
I did not get to meet John or stay in his flight due to my flight being cancelled but my niece had an amazing time in Johns beautiful flat and he was very helpful and easy going.
Definitely a great place to stay!!
The Apartment is in a fantastic area of Barcelona, easily accessible from the airport, and within walking distance to many tourist destinations. John proved to be a fantastic host, and provided us with some great tips for eating out, and things to do around the city. Apartment was very comfortable, clean and homely- with a fantastic roof terrace!
Highly Recommended- If I visit Barcelona again I will be sure to enquire about the availability of this accommodation.
