Right by the beach and Villa Olimpica, a modern and striking area of Barcelona, by the beach and within easy access to Old Town Barcelona

This three bedroom apartment is extremely convenient as the visitor is close to the beach and yet within reasonable walking distance to the Old Town Barcelona, Gothic Quarters, El Borne and the famous Las Ramblas.

The Area surrounding the Apartment:

During the games of '92, the Villa Olimpica had to accommodate thousands of athletes and spectators, architects from all over the world were called in and designed modern and stylish buildings. Some of the main features are the towers at 142 meters high, the Arts Hotel in the Villa Olímpica is surrounded by a steel frame, so it seems like it is in scaffolding. Another feature of this great area is the golden sculpture ‘Pez y Esfera’, designed by Frank Gehry, representing a headless fish, quite a sight!!.

A great feature of the area is being able to reach the beach in about 2 mins from the front door of the building....

The village also has a beautiful promenade which is full of sculptures and really nice for leisurely strolls at any time of the day but more so in the evening, this is a very lively neighborhood with lots of trendy restaurants and bars and the atmosphere is alive and palpable!!

Close by this lovely apartment you will find the Villa's shopping centre, which houses the 15 screen Icaria cinema (all movies are shown in original version!) as well as many restuarants, shops, supermarket and pretty much anything you may need.

The apartment:

This lovely 3 bedroom-2 bathroom apartment was recently refurbished and has a warm and modern feel to it. The large floor to ceiling windows ensure that the Mediterranean sunlight floods the apartment and the wooden floors throughout give the place a comfortable feel.
The living-dining area is open plan, running into the fully equipped and modern kitchen. This makes the living room area large enough for 6 guests to share while watching a DVD, cooking and having dinner. The typical Spanish tapas bar downstairs also offers room service so no need to cook if you prefer not to.

There is one double bedroom and 2 twins, one bathroom has a bathtub and the other one a shower cabin.
Fresh linen and towels (even beach towels) are provided for use on arrival. The Pioneer Stereo System has 2 large speakers. It is connected to the DVD player to watch movies and you can also connect your iPod or computer to it (free wifi too).The Waters I apartment has also a room service for your comfort.

This apartment is the perfect choice for combining a beach and city break.

Well situated in a nice old building. If some of the points could be addressed then I would go back there again.
One toilet stopped working and there was a leak in the bathroom from the flat above. This was reported but not seen to. We only received 2 sets of keys on the second day and requested a kettle which was given but also leaked. The apartment was not well equipped - few glasses, no bowls and no washing up bowl which would cost very little to address. In the third bedroom there was nowhere to hang clothes.

location was great, 10mins walk to beach and the bus tour runs along this route so was really handy to see the rest of the city. The tapas bar below was fantastic after a long day of sightseeing and much more reasonably priced than the majority of the restaurants! We also have to say a big thank you to Sergio who looked after us during our stay, he is a hero! My brother forgot his passport in the apartment and so one phone call later and Sergio was on his way to the rescue! legend :)
