This is a lovely apartment situated on the third floor, at the front, in a traditional 1930’s apartment block. It has recently been refurbished to a nice standard.
It was originally a typical Barcelona style three bedroom family apartment but when it was refurbished a wall was removed to combine the lounge and main bedroom into one large lounge dining area, which has a table that seats six and a double sofa bed that sleeps two along with a PC station and flat screen TV.

— What's nearby? —
This apartment is located in central Barcelona only 200m from the famous Sagrada Familia.
There are four supermarkets and all normal shops within a 100m radius as well as several secure public car parks. There are also plenty of bars and restaurants very close by and it only takes three or four minutes to get the 'Sagrada Familia' metro station where you have direct access to the L2 (purple) and L5 (blue lines).
Street side parking is free in August but I can provide access to parking at less then ten Euros per day all year round but this is a metro ride away.
So, if you are looking for a modern apartment, with a very stylish decoration, centrally located and very well communicated, this is the apartment for you.

House rulesThere are not any hard-and-fast house rules but please try to respect the following:
Please treat the property as you would your own so it remains in a good state for future guests.
The apartment is in a residential block where local working people live so late night noise (after 22:00 and 08:00 before ) in the apartment and public areas must be avoided.
Guests must not hang anything from the balcony because local by-laws in Barcelona do not permit that and doing so can result in a visit from the Guardia Civil and possibly a fine.
Please take care not to leave the key in lock on the inside of the front door because even if you have the other set of keys with you you will not be able to unlock the door from the outside. The only solution will be to call a locksmith, which will incur very high costs.
No smoking in the apartment but the balcony is perfectly suited for those who do wish to smoke. Tourist Licence Number : HUTB-001723

la casa estaba bien ubicada, pero los muebles eran muy viejos(necesitarían un cambio sobre todo algunos colchones) , solamente tenía sábana bajera, que no me pareció correcto, pues los edredones se notaba que estaban usados y no se lavan cada vez que entra un inquilino,los cojines y almohadas estaban regular, estaban sucios y viejos.
nos dijeron que no habría problema a la hora de marcharnos , pues no tenían a nadie alojado al día siguiente y sin embargo a las 11:00 de la mañana tuvimos que sacar las maletas, porque habían quedado con la señora de la limpieza.Otra cosa que no me gusto es que cuando fuimos a recoger las maletas habían entrado a la casa, sin saber nosotros nada, pues estaba la bolsa con la ropa de cambio del serv. de limpieza.
Overall the apartment was good. It had the promised accommodations except for the coffee. The location was great and the neighborhood was easy to get around and felt safe. There was a grocery store right around the corner, we were a block away from a nice bakery and very close to a big metro stop (Monumental) that connected us across the city to all of the places we went. The bedding was warm and comfortable except the bedding for the cot didn’t have a comforter and had just a thin blanket. In the fourth floor apartment the living room was nice but the glass table was fragile and wobbly. The other seating arrangements were as promised.
Unfortunately, we were disappointed on arrival because the pictures made everything look cleaner and bigger than it really was. The bedrooms were tight and there was no room to put a cot. The first floor was actually the second floor which made the walk to the “fourth” floor long, which was hard because there was no a light in the small staircase. The elevator was nice, but only one or two people could go up at a time. We recommend this to comfortably fit six to seven people per apartment, but you can squeeze up to nine using the couch.
Overall we feel these apartments were a good fit for our group and an affordable, convenient place to stay in the city.

Very good location and two very spacious flats in a quite residential area that can accommodate large groups. The host met us to explain everything in detail, and we had a lovely stay in general.
Apartamento muy amplio y bien situado. Nick es un gran anfitrión, nos dejó las llaves el primer día y no tuvimos que preocuparnos de nada más. El domingo a pesar de que el check out fuera a las 11 nos dio la libertad de dejar las maletas en el apartamento hasta las 2. Muy recomendable.
We had two great apartments in the same building. Both apartments was clean and tidy everything we needed was there, both hosts are very helpful and friendly.
Nick was fantastic we were affected by the French strike, he did everything to help us and provide us accomadations and it's not easy for 16 people!
Very accommodating, uncomplicated Schlüsselüber- and delivery, excellent location (metro and bus just around the corner), quiet area, condition of the apartment is fine
Sehr entgegenkommend, unkomplizierte Schlüsselüber- und abgabe, sehr gute Lage (U-Bahn sowie Bus direkt um die Ecke), ruhige Gegend, Zustand der Wohnung ist in Ordnung
