About This Listing
Bright and spacious (130 m2) apartment in the center of Barcelona with additional furnished terrace of 40 m2. The apartment also comes with a jacuzzi, a nice feature for those on a romantic break. The apartment has two double rooms and one single room. One of the double rooms has ensuite with Jacuzzi. There are two bathrooms in all. The kitchen is fully equipped with washing machine and tumble drier. The apartment also has air con / central heating, wifi and the building has an elevator and wheelchair access.
The apartment is situated in a beautiful and quiet tree lined street very close to placa Universidad which itself is only a few minutes walk to placa Catalunya. There is a metro station a stones throw from the building and the airport bus stops right across the road from the apartment which is handy for those taking the Aerobus.
Due to its central location, the apartment is within walking distance of many of Barcelonas more popular attractions.
There is a large and well stocked fruit and vegetable shop right below the apartment and a large supermarket across the road. For those that like the market experience Sant Antoni market is just a short walk from the apartment building and the barrio is serviced by numerous quaint cafes and some very good restaurants.
I hope you enjoy your stay as much as I enjoy living here.
Hasta luego !!
Just that guests will treat my apartment as if it were their own and that my neighbors were their own also.Please note this is not a place for stag nights or hen nights. Thank you.
If you want a first class, five star experience, stay in John Lukes apartment. The apartment itself is beautifully laid out and tastefully decorated without going overboard. John has a wonderful selection of books to peruse and plenty of helpful maps, guides etc to help you out in Barcelona with a home that is close to everything. When you are not going out or just coming home after your day, this home is the perfect welcome. What sets this place apart is the huge terrace which is bathed in sunshine, to relax on over a glass of wine while reading a book or listening to music. John himself is very welcoming and laid back with very few do's and don'ts. Unfortunately on our first night our music was loud enough to bring a neighbour to the door so the few requests John lays out are consideration and respect for his buildings other tenants. I cannot recommend this beautiful home too highly. It is a must for any visitors to this wonderful city.
We were a group of four friends and John's apartment was great for us. The location is excellent and the highlight for us was the incredible roof terrace and living room. It was as it looks in the pictures (if anything the terrace and living room are nicer). John was very accommodating when our flight was delayed and met us in person to show us around and explain everything. I can recommend.
This apartment is so big, so bright and airy, and so convenient to every thing. A super market right across the street made picnics on the terrace at night easy and fun. John was the most accommodating of hosts, couldn't have asked for more...and he's so much cuter than this pix....
Thanx John...should we ever return to Barcelona...you will be our first stop!!
Very welcoming, communicative and generous host. We spent all of our time on the terrace, which is really a super space. The french windows from the sitting room open up almost fully to the terrace, improving that space even further. Kitchen is well equipped, the jacuzzi is a nice plus, the two double bedrooms have their own covered terrace with great views. The single bedroom is a bit dark, as it only has a window on an internal light well, but it is spacious. I feel the location of the flat is perfect: great supermarket just opposite and the stop of the aerobus is so so handy. San Antoni has some really cool cafes/restaurants in it, it is very close to the Reval, where there are a ton of bars, and also close to the Barrio Gotico, but not packed with tourists as the latter is. All in all, a great experience, thank you John.
We had a great stay in John's fabulous apartment. It is so close to the old town and La Rambla. The huge sunny deck is a perfect spot for a quiet drink or a meal.
John made us feel very welcome. He was following up via email about our arrival and was there to greet us. SHowed us the apartment and how to use everything, explained the neighborhood and restaurants, trains, taxis etc. John was always available on hand to respond to our queries via email or phone calls or even come to the apartment as needed. Extremely helpful and nice.
