About the property

Right on Passeig de Gracia only a few meters from Plaza de Catalunya

The Paseo de Gracia B apartment is a 90sqm high quality rental and one of five properties we manage in this exclusive building.

It is located right on this gorgeous and the city's wealthiest avenue. Here on Passeig de Gracia is where all the famous designer brands have their stores. Plaça de Catalunya (the main square in Barcelona and center core of the city) as well as the Gothic quarter and Las Ramblas are only a stone throw away from the apartment. Famous sights such as Gaudi’s La Pedrera (Casa Mila) or Casa Battló are just a few meters up the street. The location is as central as it is exclusive.

The building itself counts as one of the most beautiful ones in this area. It has been constructed in the year 1890. Next to other features, the beautiful marble entrance has been conserved and maintained and captivates every visitor.

The living room of this apartment is spacious, faces Passeig de Gracia and even has a balcony from where the visitor can overview the avenue down to Placa de Catalunya. Further on the living room is equipped with two comfortable sofas, a big flat-screen TV and a DVD player. One of the two sofas converts in one easy movement into a comfortable double bed. Also in the living room there is a desk with chair which comes in handy in case some work needs to be done.

The two bedrooms are situated on both opposite ends of the apartment.

The master suite has a queen-sized canopy bed and a large cupboard. The guests have access to the balcony with views of the Paseo de Gracia. The ensuite bathroom, with a jacuzzi-style tub and shower also comes with double sinks, WC and bidet.

The second bedroom offers a twin-sized trundle bed (see pictures) and a spacious cupboard. The bedroom can be used as a single room or, when pulling out the second bed as a twin room. Right next to this bedroom is the second bathroom which is accessible from the long hallway.

Next to the living room is the dining area with space for up to 6 persons. The kitchen which one accesses from the long hallway next to the dining area is fully equipped with everything one would require to prepare and enjoy a meal in the apartment. Further on at the guest’s disposal are fridge, freezer, oven, stove, washer, dryer, dish washer, toaster, coffee maker, kettle as well as an iron and an iron board.

In general:

The apartment and the area are safe. The building has a doorman as well as security cameras in the entrance area. The entrance door of the building, as well as the apartment door are equipped with security locks. There is also a safty box installed in the apartment.

The Area surrounding the Apartment;

The guest staying at the Passeig de Gracia B apartment will be assured easy access to this lively Mediterranean city and will find that this apartment is a great spot from which to map out daily jaunts and from which to explore all that this fantastic city has to offer.

Most of Barcelona’s famous spots of interest such as Gaudi’s La Pedrera, the Picasso museum, the Cathedral, Las Ramblas with the well known Boqueria fresh food market, the old town with the gothic quarter and El Borne as well as the harbour are reachable within a few minutes walking (no transportation needed). If public transportation is needed for example to visit Gaudi’s park Guell or Sagrada Familia (the symbol of the city), there would be a metro station literally right in front of the building’s entrance with access to 3 lines (L2, L3 and L4). The L4 (yellow line) would bring guests also to the beaches Barceloneta, Port Olimpic/ Ciutadella, and Poble Nou. The line L3 (green line) would bring the guest for example to Barca’s impressive football stadium CAMP NOU. The underground metro in Barcelona is cheap and fast. There would also be the option to take a taxi which in Barcelona is also cheaper than in most western European cities. Taxis are circulating in this area 24h. There is a taxi stop right at the next street corner (15 meters from the apartment). To get to the beach by taxi from the apartment would take about 10 minutes (depending on the traffic) and would not cost more than 7,- Euros.

During the check-in procedure our guests will receive detailed explanations about everything that is useful and important to know when visiting this great city. We have a selection of restaurant and tapas bar recommendations prepared and will advise where to find the next grocery store, about shop opening hours, etc.. Please feel free to ask questions already when inquiring about the apartment.

Wonderful apartment in a superb location

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is better then the description and the pictures. It is truly a nice place to stay. The location is just perfect for visiting Barcelona. Proximity to restaurants, grocery stores, shopping and the Metro could not be better. Marcel is a superb host and communicates with his guests very well. The check-in is very comprehensive and he provides lots of detail for you to become very acquainted with the apartment and area. We rent several times every year in Spain and this was our best experience over the last nine years. We will return. Enjoy your stay.

Excellent Barcelona abode in the most perfect location

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for five days and couldn't have been more thrilled with our time there. The apartment was comfortable, clean, modern, sophisticated, and truly everything we were looking for. The location was truly ideal, on Passeig de Gràcia, steps away from the Metro, a taxi stand, and incredible restaurants, shops, and bars. Marcel was easy to work with and made the entire experience a breeze. We look forward to returning and staying here again!

Great Place...Great Location

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in Barcelona started with a fantastic introduction to the apartment and to the city, by Marcel. Our flight was delayed and Marcel worked with us on the arriving time. The information he provided was valuable. The apartment was perfect for two couples, and the location could not have been better. We had everything we needed in the apartment for our stay. It is well furnished and comfortable and the lift was a plus. Street noise is almost non-existent. Pastries and coffee at the bakery next door were a fantastic way to start the day. If you need it, the Metro stop is handy. I would definitely recommend this apartment.

A brilliant find

  • 5 of 5

A lovely apartment beautifully finished and very well equipped. It is in a perfect location. We walked everywhere and saw everything we wanted. Marcel was outstanding. He gave an excellent introduction to both the apartment and to Barcelona. Thanks to his guidance we made very good use of our time in the city. I would not hesitate to recommend the apartment.

Lovely apartment in superb location

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely time and really adored Barcelona and now understand why our daughter, Georgie, likes it so much.

The apartment was wonderful and so well placed for the local sights and many thanks for letting us leave our luggage until later. We went down to Barceloneta on Saturday and had a lovely walk along the beaches to Olympic and had a long lunch in one of the restaurants there before walking slowly back to the apartment.

Thanks for everything.

This lovely stylish apartment is located in the heart of Barcelona; on the city's most elegant commercial boulevard, Passeig de Gracia and only a few meters from Plaza de Catalunya (the city's main square).

This area is as exclusive as it is central.

The guest staying at the Passeig de Gracia B apartment will be assured easy access to this lively Mediterranean city and will find that this apartment is a great spot from which to map out daily jaunts and from which to explore all that this fantastic city has to offer...

Most of Barcelona’s famous spots of interest such as Gaudi’s La Pedrera (Casa Mila), Casa Battló, the Picasso museum, the Cathedral, Las Ramblas with the well known Boqueria fresh food market, the old town in general with the Gothic quarter and El Borne as well as the harbor….all are reachable within a few minutes walking (no transportation needed).

But, if you would like to visit sights which are not located in the city center such as Sagrada Familia (Gaudi’s master piece and symbol of the city), Gaudi’s park Guell, the Tibidabo, Montjuic with the Miró museum and the Olimpic stadium, Plaza España with the magic fountains, etc. there would be a metro station literally right in front of the building’s entrance with access to 3 lines (L2, L3 and L4). The L4 (yellow line) would bring guests also to the beaches Barceloneta, Port Olimpic/ Ciutadella, Marbella and Poble Nou. The line L3 (green line) would bring the guest for example to Barca’s impressive football stadium CAMP NOU. The underground metro in Barcelona is cheap, clean and fast.
