Your Barcelona Apartment
Welcome to your fabulous, funky & modern Chillax Barcelona Apartment in the heart of Barcelona, Spain. The apartment has been completely refurbished to a high standard and is available for holiday rentals, staycations or even workcations.
It is in a residential building dating back to ca. 1890 so there is a very nice contrast between the building and the apartment as well as inside the apartment where you still will find the original tiles in the bedroom and both bathrooms as well as some original doors.
It’s also well worth mentioning that the apartment is ‘interior’. That means it is not facing the streets. So you don’t hear any noise from the cars or Barcelona’s ‘famous’ rubbish collection at night at all. Though the apartment is facing a very small communal park also called ‘La Isla’ where sometimes the locals have a little chat about the latest soap opera on television or take out their dogs during the day. The park is closed at night.
In theory the apartment can sleep up to 5 people according to the tourism license but for true comfort I offer the apartment to up to 2 guests only. Really a quirky fun place for one guest, couples, lovers or single business travellers (there is a desk and chair too).
There are also two bathrooms (shower, basin, toilet) one being part of the master bedroom. The open-plan kitchen is equipped with all you may be looking for including fridge, freezer, dishwasher, oven, microwave, coffee machine, water kettle and toaster. The washing machine, a tumble dryer, the iron and the ironing board are in a separate small storage room. There is a clothes rail rack with about 15 hangers but not a traditional wardrobe.
Most recently I renewed the windows with double-glazing and even electrical blinds/shutters. There is also a new wall mounted air conditioning/heating system with two units. The system does have a ‘plasma purification option’ completely removing microscopic contaminants from the intake air to supply clean and fresh air.
There are a total of three televisions, one DVD player and superfast ‘fibra optica’ Wifi. There is no cable or satellite television or entertainment such as Netflix.
Chillax Barcelona Apartment is very centrally located in Sant Antoni in the district of Eixample. Just a short walk to nearby Plaza Universitat, Plaza Catalunya, Rambla de Catalunya, Paseig de Gracia, Diagonal and a favourite with many visitors ‘Las Ramblas’ or ‘La Boqueria’. The neighbourhoods of El Raval, El Barri Gotic and El Born are also within easy walking distance.
There are several transport options such as the metro stations Universitat, Urgell or Sant Antoni and numerous bus options taking you directly to many of the lovely beaches that Barcelona has to offer as well as Plaza Espana, Parc Guell or La Sagrada Familia. Only minutes away are the Aerobus stops of Urgell and Plaza Universitat coming from the airport El Prat or the bus stop Carrer de Sepulveda taking you to the airport El Prat. From the train stations Paseig de Gracia or Estacion de Sants are numerous trains if you fancy a visit to beautiful Sitges or Girona as well as other destinations.
And then of course there is also a fabulous choice of cafes, restaurants, bars or clubs for those wanting to explore Barcelona’s infamous nightlife. Other shops including supermarkets are there in abundance too as well as the recently reopened Sant Antoni Market.
