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 “Modernist Top Floor” on Ausias Marc street offers you the entire top floor of a historic building in the “Golden Neighborhood” of Barcelona, which includes an enormous terrace just for you and your travel party!
These amazing properties display a modernist style characteristic of 18th century Barcelona and consist of 2 completely refurnished luxury apartments linked by a breathtaking terrace, located in the heart of Barcelona. They consist of 3 double bedrooms, a loft with 2 Japanese beds, 4 bathrooms (2 en suite), 2 fully equipped kitchens, stylish dining areas suitable for up to nine people, 2 large living rooms with large glass windows (where the gorgeous sunlight enters every day!), and, of course, a beautiful and scenic terrace.
Our apartments are 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.

Arian's place was everything we had hoped for. It housed the 6 of us comfortably (including kids of 12,10, and 4). The location was great. We were close to the train, which we took quite a bit to easily get around the city, and we could walk to a ton of shops and restaurants, but the apartment was quiet at night. The supermarket across the street is really handy, too. The building is beautiful, and the unit has great rooms, tv's, and outdoor space (which is unique, as are the turtles). Arian was responsive while were there in helping us get set up with transportation or getting us situated, or even getting beach towels. Staying in the apartment compared to a hotel, seemed to add to our trip. Great neighborhood, could spread out and relax in the living room or deck when you needed to, and didn't have to eat every meal out.
We had a great stay - Arian was very hospitable and the apartment was perfect for our needs. And we will definitely be back soon!
We had a wonderful stay in this beautiful apartment. The location is great - a nice quiet area, but still very central, close to everything, and a park nearby. There is a well-stocked supermarket just across the street.
The apartment itself is really stylish, has everything you might need. The terrace is very big and has space for eating, playing or just catching some sun. My kids were overjoyed to discover the turtles living there.
Arian is an amazing host, he was always super-friendly, very good with children (my kids loved him). He was always very quick to answer to any inquiries or questions, offer suggestions about interesting activities, and help us out in any way he could. We forgot a few things when leaving and he did everything he could to get them back to us. We really appreciated his hospitality and we hope to get to stay with him again!
One thing to keep in mind! This is an old house, with a very small, very old-school elevator. We have a big stroller, which was difficult to fit (had to take it apart). This wasn't a big issue for us, but it's best to know beforehand.
Arian's AirBnB is easily one of the nicest places I have ever stayed. It was immaculately clean and had every amenity you could ask for, including towels, fully equipped kitchen (with wine and espresso machines), amazing outdoor terrace, large smart HDTV, fast wifi, etc. Arian is also an amazing host and makes you feel right at home from the second you walk in, offering insider tips on places to go and things to do in Barcelona. The location is great, top of the building so there is no noise but also a quick walk to many different restaurants and bars. Sufficient to say I will definitely stay at this AirBnB next time I am in Barcelona and would highly encourage anyone reading this to do the same!
What an amazing heaven for our weekend i Barcelona! Arians penthouse apartment was a sanctuary close to the sky and far away from the street below. It felt like our own private silent place in the middle of Barcelona. The beds were supercomfy and the apartment has lots of great sofas and places to sit, chill and enjoy each other. Arian was super helpful and easy to communicate with, showing us around the building and also some of the places nearby. A short walk to the Ramblas. All in all, really hope we get the chance to spend another weekend here at some point. Until then all the best!
Apartments like this is a reason to never stay in hotels - it has character, space and comfort that no hotel can offer - no matter what your budget is. And Arian is a great host! I will definitely come back to Barcelona just to stay here :)
Honestly unbelievable. Probably the nicest place I have ever stayed in my life. Arian is a great guy, easy to work with, and has a lot of cool stuff to say about the apartment. The design of the place (furnitue, lighting, everything) is truly amazing. I can't endorse this place enough. If you are considering staying here you absolutely should.
Fantastic host and a truly fantastic apartment / experience, very recommended.
Arian was fantastic and was a very welcoming host.
The apartment was amazing and we will definitely be back in touch with Arian next time we are on Barcelona
We absolutely loved our stay in Barcelona in Arian's apartment! He is a wonderful welcoming host, has wealth of information about the city and recommendations. Arian was very detailed and attentive to all our questions before and during our stay! Very personable host! we were 3 couples of friends so we rented both apartments and it worked out great because we could spend time together when we wanted to but there was privacy too! Will definitely come back to Barcelona and to Arian's place!!!
