Stay in a private double room in our lovely apartment with a lift and an amazing roof terrace. Near to Sant Antoni Market, the Boqueria, Las Ramblas, Monjuic, Marina & Beach. You’ll love the comfort, the terrace garden, the views, and the vibrant and friendly neighborhood. Good for couples or solo travellers. Central heating throughout apartment & Aircon in the bedroom.
Our place is a duplex penthouse apartment with a large and peaceful private terrace garden that you are very welcome to use for chilling out. There is a lift / elevator in the building, so you don't have to climb up and down 5 floors :-) which is a rare bonus in the old town center.
We are a couple and this is our home, and we usually rent out the private comfortable double bedroom to guests, and you are welcome to share the rest of the apartment with us (bathroom, living room, kitchen and terrace garden).
The location is excellent, 3 minutes walk from Sant Antoni market, 8 minutes from Las Ramblas, 7 minutes from the Boqueria market, and 10 minutes from Monjuic mountain.
You are welcome to use all the facilities of the apartment (bathroom, living room, kitchen for breakfast, tea and coffee, and the rooftop terrace). We have high speed WiFi signal throughout the apartment and rooftop terrace. We also have central heating throughout the apartment and airconditioning (cooling and heating) in the main guest bedroom. Raval is the most vibrant and exciting district of Barcelona and we have a superb range of cafes, bars, restaurants, live music venues, theaters and art house cinemas within 5 minutes walk, whilst the apartment itself remains a haven of tranquility and relaxation.
You are welcome to use all the facilities in the apartment, including the high speed wifi/internet. We have a comfortable and clean bathroom with bath and shower, hair dryer etc. You are welcome to use the kitchen to prepare breakfast (tea and coffee, eggs and bacon provided) in the morning, and for tea, coffee and snacks at anytime of day. You can use the fridge and freezer, the clothes washing machine and drying rack. You can chill out in the living room (sofa, table and chairs), and of course hang out on the amazing rooftop terrace. If you need any help using any of the facilities, please don't hesitate to ask.
If you plan to use the kitchen and dining area for preparing your own lunch and dinner on a frequent basis, please let me know in advance, as I am often entertaining local friends for dinner. Use of the kitchen at breakfast time and for tea and coffee (and quick snacks) at anytime of day is fine.
We enjoy greeting guests and offering them a refreshing drink and snacks on our private rooftop terrace, learning about their trip and offering ideas and advice for what to do in Barcelona.
You will be provided with a set of keys, clean bed linen and towels, as well as free use of shampoos and shower gels etc. The bedroom has both air conditioning and heating.
