The flat is at the top of a 1940 building with great views of Barcelona, extremely sunny, fully equipped and with a terrace at the same level.
It's a design made 30 squared meters flat, in one space, equipped with conditioned air, washing machine and dryer, dishwasher, kitchen, microwave, nespreso, kettle, toaster, others..., and a bath.
There's an elevator in the building which arrives to the level down mine, there's only a few steps to arrive at home!.
Located at just 50 mts of the underground station of Paral.lel, in the old centre of the city, near here there are heaps of possibilities to enjoy Barcelona.
The location gives a great advantage to the flat, so it's on a main street (see the picture), Paral.lel Av., so, you don't need to feel unsafe walking by narrow streets if you don't want.
Catalonian Place and the shopping streets are at 20 minutes walking.
The neighbourhood is full of activity with more than 3 theatres near, bars, night clubs, at 15 minutes to 25 minutes to the most important museums in Barcelona, MACBA, MNAC, Picasso Museum, Palau Güell (Gaudi's building), and to the Rambla and the port. Also, you can take the funicular just at the same Paral.lel Station to rise the Montjuïch Castle.
It's a comfortable apartment for two persons, that could be used exceptionally for 4 persons, because there is a sofa convertible in double bed.
The apartment's most exceptional interest is the great views of almost all Barcelona, it's one of the highest buildings in this street, and it's on the top!! almost 360' views!! With huge windows, and don't forget: the terrace!!
In the description, there is a check-in after 16.00. Please write me for another options.
The cleaning fee is not a cleaning service during your stay in the flat. It's only the cleaning needs when you left the apartment. There is not cleaning service available while you are using the flat.

We did enjoy our stay in Sandra&Lluises apartment very much. The apartment is small but enough room for 2 people, it is clean and comfortable. The views are magnificent. Sandra was very helpful with check in and out. She did explain everything clearly. We will definitely come back.
Nuestra estadía estuvo excelente. Sandra se porto muy bien y fue muy paciente con nosotros porque llegamos un poco tarde al encuentro. El departamento tiene lo necesario. Es limpio . Sales de ahí y esta la estación del metro. Y caminando desde el llegas a los lugares más turísticos. Tiene un balcón buenísimo. Hasta lavadora y secadora. Vale la pena!
We absolutely loved our trip in Barca and the apartment and the location topped it off. The place surrounding the apartment has plenty of beautiful bars and very good restaurants nearby and it's not too busy!
The boiler can be a bit tricky but we were in a rush to see the football so didn't concentrate when Sandra's friend showed us. Sandra came round the next day and showed us how to work it fine.
The fridge can also be a little cold and sometimes freeze things unexpectedly!!
These are minor things in what is a great place in a fabulous location and would 100% stay again.
Contact with Sandra and Lluis was quick and responsive they couldn't have done more to help with a couple of things at the start of our trip.
Thank you so much!! We had one of our best ever holidays!
Sandra a été d'un excellent accueil. Nous avons échangé par mail avant notre arrivée, puis elle nous a tout expliqué en anglais à notre arrivée dans son appartement.
Sandra and Lluis’s apartment is a conveniently-located, comfortable and spacious apartment for 2 people. It is very well planned with a lot of storage space, and has everything you need: linens, towels, shampoo, toilet paper, a fully equipped kitchen with a refrigerator, dishwasher, microwave, toaster, and all necessary kitchenware. It’s also very clean.
The apartment is full of light during the daytime from its two parallel windows, one of which leads to an open balcony (equipped with a table and four chairs), with beautiful views of most of Barcelona.
Apart from the double bed, there is a sofa, a long desk with two chairs and a large dining table in the kitchen with another two chairs.
The Wi-Fi worked perfectly. There’s great hot water in the shower. There’s even a washing machine combined with a dryer.
Sandra met us for the check-in. She is very nice. She explained in great detail everything we needed to know about the apartment. I must also say that communication with Sandra and Lluis prior to our stay was very good.
Note that in order to reach the apartment after entering the building, you need to go up 8 floors in a small (but safe and efficient) elevator, and then there are a few steps to the apartment (it’s on the 9th floor).
The apartment has many shops, restaurants and supermarkets close-by, and it is located in a safe, central area, adjacent to the metro station. It’s a 10-15 minute walk to the Rambla.
In short, the apartment is highly recommended for couples visiting Barcelona.
We stayed at Sandra's apartment for four nights. Sandra could not meet us in person while checking in since we got a bit late on the day but she had her friend Alexis help us with the check-in.
The apartment is extremely charming and offers stunning views of Barcelona (you can see Sagrada Familia, the old cathedral, the Columbus monument, Montjuic as well as views of the Mediterranean Sea from the flat). The location is excellent ;2-3 min walk to the nearest metro station (las ramblas is approx 15 mins if you choose to walk, you'll get there sooner by metro though), plenty of eating options and supermarkets in the neighbourhood. The flat has all the amenities as described on Airbnb- all appliances that you might need in the kitchen, washing machine and dryer, air conditioning and heating etc.
The building is a bit old and has a very small elevator (very difficult for 2 people with bags to fit in). We took some time getting used to the door locks (it gets a bit jammed).
But all in all its a fabulous place to stay if you're travelling to Barcelona.
