In the picturesque architectural home of the Eixample district lays our apartment named “Arco", due to the many arches around and also inside our home.
Arco is a colorful, bright and spacious apartment up on the 4th floor (the house avails of an elevator!) and its floors are created by the historical art of Barcelona’s encaustic cement tiles.
Nearby are the famous Plaza España and the beautiful hill Montjuich (10-15 min walk). Next to the Plaza España lies the newly opened shopping mall "las Arenas".
The harbor and the sea are not right in front of your doorstep but they're not far! Take a scooter we can arrange for you or the bus number 41 just in front of the apartment on Calle Rocafort and it will take you to the Barceloneta beach in 20 minutes.
Do not forget: you feel the sea air close by, specially on the terrace rooftop where you can sight not only the famous Tibidabo hills, but also the Mont Juic and a glimpse of the sea. You live amongst old vibes of the city! And of course the Metro (red line, also on Calle Rocafort corner Gan Via) will take you everywhere in no time.
Arco is located just a few minutes from the Feria de Barcelona, which hosts many exhibitions and fairs; the Magic Fountain of Montjuic, and its sound and light shows; the National Museum of Catalan Art, the magnificent palace built for the International Exposition in 1929.
Shops, Supermarkets, restaurants, all around the block. Mostly open all day. Hip night clubs and the famous "gayxampe" is just 2 blocks away (very cool and not only for gays!).
Inside our home:
This stylish apartment has a big living room with a sofa (bed / 160x200) and a dining area for 4-6 people. There's access to the balcony from the living room that also takes you to one of the two bedrooms: "Africa" and "Apple". Both entirely different in their designs.
"Africa" warms you with its brownie cream colors and it's large bed (160x190) - and room. "Apple" on the other hand is a sweetheart bedroom, smaller but cozy where its colors freshens your mind. French bed-size (150x200)
The kitchen is equipped with a fridge (in hallway), microwave, ceramic hotplates, Nespresso coffee machine (without the pads)..
The bathroom is complete with shower/hairdryer/towels.
There's a 10MB optical fibre Internet connection (WIFI and cable) in the whole apartment and an iPhone/iPad Audio Station. If you need to use the washing machine/dryer please let us know.
There is air-conditioning!
Guests have access to the community terrace where you will, in 99% of the cases enjoy 100% privacy. There are 4-5 sun chairs waiting for you to rest and enjoy the Mediterranean winds and sun.
You will love it.

Very nice appartment which looked like the photos,
Typical spanish appartment house with high ceiling and lift.
Heating worked perfect which was necessary in Jan. WiFi was fast and the kitchen was equiqed with every thing you need for a short or longer stay. Microwave, modern oven, Nespresso machine, fruits press for fresh orange juice every morning. Washing machine and dryer worked perfect. The linen and towels are new and clean.
Carrer Arrago is very central. Bakery next to the flat, supermarket and fresh fuit shops around the corner, Metro is just 5 minutes walk which brings you to Pl Catalunya or Espana.
The roof terrasse is to the backside of the house and gives you quite and relaxing times.
I was very pleased to stay there. Recommended for short and longer stay.
We spent the entire September in Christian's appartment. Our stay was perfect. Communication with Christian was easy. Everytime we contacted him, he responded within 2 hours. The appartment was super neat and clean and sunny. The pics on Airbnb are one to one what you get. The Eixample area is very nice. Supermarket, Ecological Foodmarket, Lidl are close by. And so are nice restaurants and the Joan Miro park. The old town is 15 min by foot or 2 subway stations (which puts it in perfect distance to be away from the main tourist streams, but close enough to experience the city). The roof terrase is spectacular, we used it a lot and had a wonderful view over the fireworks at the Merce holiday. Thank you Christian for making our stay such a success.
We stayed 8 nights over there! The apartment has very nice location. Miriam and Oscar were very helpful about everything!
Very nice location!
My brother stayed in Cristian's apartment tor 5 days during christmas. The apartment was great. And Christian's friend (who was the one handing us the key) was very helpful, and always on time. I can definitely recommend renting this flat.
