In the lively neigboorhoud of example, just between plaza espana and plaza cataluña, you can rent a single room with private terrace and bathroom. Situated in my authentic (with a modern twist), very sunny and spacious penthouse (200m2).
Situated on Comte d'Urgell with Gran Via.
You have metrostop at 30m (red line 1) and several bicing stations.
The 'barrio' Sant Antoni i It is both very catalan (and just not that touristic), as upcoming with nice bars and restaurants around calle Parlemento and Rocafort.
The apartment is on the 8th floor in a building with lift and doorman.
The cosy room is for one person and has its own spacious terrace (directly accessed from the room).
You have your own small hallway before entering the room.
The private batroom with shower, toilet and sink is for your use only.
The big, well equipped kitchen with its utensils and laundry room are at your convenience.
They are shared (with 1 or 2 persons).
The apartment is very well communicated with metro (50m to metrostop urgell, red line 1) and buses. Most of the interesting sites are at walking distance.
The distribution of the house provides a very private 'litte apartment' within the apartment.
if requiered there is an aditional single bedroom. euro 30,00/night.
note; One of my earlier guests mentioned that, him being tall, the shower seemed rather small.
In case you have any doubts towards the shower, please mention this in your inquiry. I can check if the other bathroom is available during your stay.
Lovely Lady! Apartment is spacious, but room and bathroom are nothing for tall people. I did not fit into the shower and my legs reached well over the edge of the bed. Nonetheless, the room is recommendable, especially at this price.
hello bernhard, i am really sorry to hear you didnt fit well into the bed and shower.
i regret i wasnt more percipient and that you did not mention this inconvenience to me during your stay.
because the length of the bed i could have adapted easily at your length as it has 2 matresses.
about the shower; thanks, i will make a note in the advertisment that for tall people the shower isnt that big.
Marie Louise is a phenomenal hostess, and a delight to have on one's side in Barcelona! To say she went beyond the call of duty doesn't really cover it- I happened to be in Barcelona on some of its coldest days ever, and Marie Louise not only got a heater for my room, she installed one in the wall of the guest bathroom to keep me comfortable! She also installed extra hanging space when she saw the suits etc I had with me to hang. She is a bright, resourceful, poised and warm hostess, and even invited me to one of her own dinner parties at one point in my visit.
The Internet connection and elevator worked well (both important for me) and all else was as expected too. The balcony off the guest room I used would be quite special in warmer weather, I can note, also.
Her place and neighborhood are a great base for a Barcelona visit.
