Fantastic, bright, quiet & huge 5 bedroom design apartment with private
GARDEN (!). A heaven, in the best area of Barcelona (Eixample). Very close to Plaza Catalunya (where Airport bu stop), Las Ramblas and Paseo de Gracia. Fully renovated in 2014.
Fantastic, quiet and huge, very bright five bedroom design apartment is less than 15 minutes walk from Plaza Catalunya (and to the Aerobus (airport bus) and has got a huge, private, calm garden (very unique in Barcelona), and a chimney for the (short) winters.
The flat is in the best area of Barcelona (Eixample) next to the Modernist Museum, right at Rambla de Catalunya (much nicer than and not to mix up with Las Ramblas, though Las Ramblas are a very short walk away). Is is very quiet, given that it finds itself in the buzzling center of Barcelona, and on Rambla de Catalunya (not to mix up with Las Ramblas). This street is one of Barcelona´s finest, and invites for a stroll around all day long (you will feel very special Barcelona vives there). Already the entry of the place will disclose you that the rich upper class lived in this place (and still does in other apartments of this house).
There are plenty of great restaurants in this same street (the famous cervecería catalana is 5 minutes away, the tapas place Ciudad Comdal (belong to the same group), just opposite..... and there are tons of restaurants in the near neighbourhood. You will love the food offered by the restaurants close to my apartment!
Completely renovated in January 2014, this magnificent apartment is on the 2. floor of a building (with Elevator!).
Seating for up to 12 people (max), better 10:
- Three bedrooms with a double bed.
- One bedroom with 2 single beds.
- One bedroom with one single bed and a sleeping couch.
- A double sleeping couch in the living room.
All the bedrooms have storing space, either cupboards, wardrobes or shelves.
- 1 complete bathroom with bathtub/shower, sink and toilet.
- 1 toilet
- 1 additional shower.
The place has a great GARDEN with a fountain and amazing palm trees and nice plants (with a lot of privacy). It's really and EDEN in the middle of Barcelona.
The kitchen is equipped with all necessary appliances (including a microwave, water heater, and a nespresso machine). The apartment is exterior, quiet, bright, modern and fully furnished.
A huge sattelite and wireless Internet TV (Smart TV) is available, such as a whiteboard for people who want to do a seminar or trainings. A beamer can be provided on request, too.
This apartment has the best possible location for exploring Barcelona as it is located in the exact center of the city and at the gates to the neighborhoods of Eixample, Gothic and Born.... more centric is not possible!... I will provide you with some personal tips, also beyond the typical tourist track...you will love it!
Rambla Catalunya which is around the corner has a lot to offer, nice shops and restaurants and it´s pretty authentic and local as well. You have Plaza Catalunya and the Ramblas around the corner.
My apartment is pretty quiet since it is on the top and thus far away from the noisy streets and heading towards the typical Eixample patio.
Public transport is very close by, the airport bus is in walking distance less than 15 minutes away.
You will have a fantastic time in my place, I am sure!!!

Other things to note
TOURIST TAX & HOME ADDRESS
Since 2012, local Catalan administrations orders that every tourist aged 17 and over are required to pay a small fee to stay in a hotel or rent an apartment in any area of Cataluña. This tax only applies to the first seven nights of their stay.
Tax is 2,25 € + VAT for apartments in Barcelona, which is 2,50 € per person, per night.
The hosts are responsible of collecting this payment upon arrival during check in, so please make sure to have this money prepared for your check in.
Regarding your home address: because are obliged to issue invoices per each reservation, we kindly ask you for your home address as this mandatory information to prepare the invoice.
Licence number: HUTB-010924 dash 14
Also Tourist licence number to be found in the photos of this listing.
This is a residential building. Neighbors are cool but deserve to sleep and rest. Since there are also old people living at the apartment, please don't forget to close all ELEVATOR doors please.
Important note: Because I have a touristic licence for my apartment, I require that all my guests after they confirm a booking with me, send me a scan of their passport. This is because according to the law in Catalunya, we as hosts are obliged to forward this information to the National State Police (Mossos D'Escuadra). Please note that all legal and registered touristic establishments such as hotels, hostels, bed & breakfast, etc, have to do the same as well. Thank you for your understanding.

I would like to ask you to show respect to my flat as if it was your own house. Let me know your arrival time as soon as you can so I can arrange for a smooth check-in. Once you left the airport give me a call or send me a message to confirm the time or communicate delays. Normally, you can CHECK-IN from 17.00 pm, but if you arrive earlier, we will surely find a solution depending on availability of the cleaning women and other groups, at least for leaving your luggage befor that after 11.00 (should not be a problem).
The same true is for later CHECK-OUT: I will try to adapt to your needs as much as I can. Please respect the neighbours and don´t make noise after 21.00 o clock; always close the elevator door when using it and please switch off lights and heating or fans when leaving.
The keys will be handed over right at the apartment to make it easier for you. Please note that I will have a person help with LATER CHECK-INS (after 20.00 / 8pm). Here an additional fee of 20 EUR is to be paid in cash to the person doing the check-in. For arrivals after 12pm the fee will be of 50 EUR.
Feel at home, but please keep in mind that there are neighbors around who deserve some sleep. To secure a peaceful living together, please keep the volume at a tolerable level, especially between 21pm and 8am. So if your night does not end at that time I would ask you to turn down the music or leave the flat and set off for the city. Should you get into trouble with the neighbors or the police because of noise nuisance we will only pay back half of the safety deposit.
Enjoy your stay in this nice place, and in one of the most beautiful cities in the world. I am sure you will love your stay. Thanks! :)

Viajar es una de las pasiones de mi vida. Me fascina conocer nuevas culturas y nuevos lugares lo más exóticos posibles. Sin embargo mi conexión con Barcelona está por encima de cualquier otro destino que pueda conocer. Barcelona es una ciudad con magia que cuanto más la conoces más te enamora y siempre tiene algo nuevo con lo cual sorprenderte.
