The Space

This is a really lovely 2 bedroom apartment, bright and airy, in a quiet residential part just two blocks outside of the Old City boundary. Alongside he Parc Ciutadella which used to guard Old Barcelona from attacks by sea!
Perfect for families or for working holidays, but with wonderfully easy access to the centre of Barcelona, the Old City, Port and the beaches of central Barcelona.

Situated in a classic old building typical in Barcelona, with an elevator, the apartment is well equipped and distributed.
Both bedrooms are furnished with twin single beds, bedsides and storage units and the spacious living room with double sofa bed, it can host up to 6 guests comfortably.
There is a separate dining area, great kitchen and complete bathroom with a shower.
Lively colours and fresh ambience, the apartment is air-conditioned, and equipped with flat screen TV and Wireless Internet.
Great Value.

The location is just amazing!
As the name indicates, you are centrally located and surrounded by parks. You have the Park del Nord, lovely calm grassed land spotted with shade trees. 2 minutes away you are in the central park of Barcelona the Ciutadella, more lively, this park is a favourite for group picnics, sunbathing and people watching.

You also have a beautiful walk along the park walls to the Beach, in just 10 minutes you reach the water :-)
The Ciutadella Park provides you a beautiful walk in the direction of the Old City and El Born (5 mins), continue to La Rambla (10 mins) and the Gothic centre are just 10-15 minutes walk away.

The Metro station is very near, as well the new Tram via which can take you the the flea market Encants, this location is also ideal for departing with bicycles, as it is surrounded by bicycle lanes!!

For all of you who arrive from Girona with ryanair and other low cost companies, the bus station in Estacion Nord is just 2 minutes walk from the apartment.

  • The flat was just as described if not nicer, very modern with all the necessary amenities provided. Clean linen, towels, basics in the kitchen, coffee maker (upon request) were all as described.

    The kettle wasn't working when we arrived but we quickly got a replacement by the landlord with no hassle. I stayed with 3 friends during the busy Sonar period but never had any problems, and with a secure entrance door that leads into the apartment hallway, we felt very safe and secure in the flat.

    The only thing we thought was a bit funny was the window from the main bedroom into the kitchen hallway. We had 3 females and 1 male staying and we had to ask him to not use the kitchen whilst we were getting changed! But it added all the more to the banter and fun in the flat and we thought it added a very unique touch.

    The location is great, within 15 minutes walking distance from the beach (near Bogatell) and about 20 minutes walk to La Barceloneta. Transport links are great, with 2 metro stations within 5 minute walk. There is a relatively main road just as you walk down towards the park, where cabs are easy to hail and there is a cashpoint just on the other side of the street. With a mercadona and a vegetable/fruit shop just at the foot of the apartment entrance, it was always easy to get anything we needed during the day.There was also a little petrol station on the main road that was open 24 hours in case of emergencies!

    Angela and Asaf were very quick at responding and answered every question or request I had.The entire booking and check in process was handled very professionally. The gentleman that came to greet us gave us all the information we needed about the flat upon arrival.

    I can't recommend this flat as well as the hosts more and will definitely see if the flat is available when I next visit Barcelona. Thank you so much for making us feel so welcome in a very clean flat we called home for 8 days!

  • Great apartment in a quiet neighbourhood; quite close to the barcelona center, with a 5min walk from Arc de Triomf and 15-20min walk from Placa Catalalunya. We practically visited Barcelona on foot without problem, and anyway the metro and rodalies is just 5min away from the apt. The Ciutadella park is also 5min next door, very practical to lay after a long day of sightseeing! Also, there are 2 supermarkets right around the corner.
    The apt in itself is spacious enough for 6 people (but the table is for 4 person and there are 2 more chairs ; we were 5 and it was just OK), and when we arrived most of the kitchen stuff were new. The only downside was the 1 toilet/bathroom without lock and hot water that can be sometimes a bit capricious. Other than that everything was clean and new!
    We had a small trouble with the keys to the apt on the first day (the keys to the front door were the wrong ones) and the cleaning ladies were 30min late on the last day because of the bus, but other than that the hosts were sympathetic and quick to respond (the key problem was solved in 10min)!
    We found it was a great place to stay for a first visit to Barcelona!

About
I grew up in Sydney, Australia and moved to London at 24, gave it a good 10 years and now I've found Barcelona and Asaf. To me, Barcelona is the love child of these two very different cities: Its the perfect combination of the good weather, relaxed and active lifestyle of Sydney and the bustling, centre-of-the-world ness of London. Asaf and I love to show visitors what Barcelona is for us: The creativity, architecture and music. The beach, cycling, BBQs with friends, wonderful food and amazing weather. It's a great place to call home for a little while. In my spare time I crochet and I have a little Etsy shop called Churchill Handmade. My creations are all from natural fibres like wools, hemp, bamboo and organic cotton because I think we all need a bit more nature in our lives.
