Feel at home in this shiny apartment in the centre of Barcelona.
Just a 10 minute walk from Plaza Catalunya, this place is ideal for 2-3 people who want to make the most of their stay in the city. Within a few minutes' walk you can reach the most important sights in Paseig de Gracia (with Gaudi's buildings), Plaza de Espanya (where you can see the Poble Espanyol and the International fair), and the MACBA museum. It is located near the market of St Antoni, right above the historical centre (Barrio Gótico and Raval) and near Las Ramblas.
It is a fairly quiet place, because it is located at the top floor of a modernist building, but in the middle of a lively area, with bars and restaurants. You have a pleasant view from both sides, towards Tibidabo hill from the salon and beautiful modernist buildings from the bedroom.
It is very easy to reach 3 different metro lines and the airport bus (within 2 blocks of distance). There's also plenty of buses around (for example, the one that goes to Park Guell).
The place has one bedroom with a double bed and a sofa bed in the living room, a fully equipped kitchen (with all utensils and basic ingredients to cook your own meals, if you wish) and a recently renovated bathroom with a bathtub.
There is also WiFi connection, a table with four seats, an extra sofa and an extra matress.
Due to the fact that both sides are exterior, there is usually a pleasant breeze, so the flat doesn't get too hot. However, there is also a big fan, in case you need to make the place cooler.
I can make you a special price if you're interested in renting it for a substantial period of time.

Great location for a stay in Barcelona! I visited for a conference and it was very easy to get taxis right on the street and the subway a block away. Cris's place was quiet, safe, and clean.
Cris's place is very well situated near Barcelona's old town and various metro stations. She provided food and drink for us, and communicated superbly. All in all, a really good place from which to explore Barcelona. My girlfriend didn't like that there were only 8 minutes of warm shower water, but I figure that's normal in Barcelona this time of year. I'd recommend this place for sure!
Fantastic stay at Cris place...she was very welcoming and provided good information about the local area...the apartment was ideally located and we could walk to the beach, central town and to the Gaudi sights...the apartment was breezy, simple, clean and user friendly...we would recommend this place to rest your head when in Barcelona...thanks Cris xx
Christina's apartment is in a great location if you're searching for a place near the city, but not with the noise of the city. It's cosy, clean and Christina is a lovely person!\
If I go back to Barcelona, I would love to stay in this apartment again.
Thank you so much for everything Christina!
I made very last minute travel arrangements, and booked my Flights without confirmed accommodation, I needed accommodation the following night!! Cris replied to my request and we exchanged a few emails and the apartment was booked the same night! Cris gave me great instructions from the airport to the apartment, various alternatives (train, bus, taxi etc.. including estimated costs which helped a lot) and waited for me to arrive to show me around. The apartment was as described, lovely and bright, bigger than I thought, from the photos, with a nicely separated bedroom, kitchen, bathroom and living room. The apartment if sharing would be great as the bedroom and living room are at opposite ends of the corridor. Cris left me contact numbers if i needed anything or had any problems and alternatives numbers if I couldn't get through to her ( I didn't need to call). The apartment is brilliantly situated very close to two metro lines, which are reliable and frequent, and walking distance to so many major attractions, Les Rambles a 15 min walk, and local shops including supermarkets on the doorstep. I loved the apartments location, I travelled around as a single female traveller without problems. The apartment is on the 4th floor, but it has an elevator (although this was out for a day during my stay) not really a problem. Being so high up my even a benefit from the lack of mosquitos, I didn't get one bite during my stay :-) normally I get eaten alive!! There is no TV or radio, but this was not a problem for me, as I'm a book reader. . I've lived in Rome, so was actually surprised at the great water pressure in the apartment, no problem at all with the shower or sinks. Towels and extra bedding were supplied and Cris left a hairdryer at my request. I would definitely stay in the apartment again, and hope its available when I next travel to Barcelona.
Cris' apartment was lovely, very light, clean and spacious, with arty touches and comfortable beds. The location was great- very central, and Cris was very helpful.
Piso muy bien ubicado en zona centrica pero tranquila y segura. Lo unico es que es algo caluroso.
