A stylish, quiet and luxurious apartment in the heart of Barcelona's Ciutat Vella.

This stylishly designed apartment is on Via Laietana; it has lots of natural light as both bedrooms and the living room are exterior. This recently refurbished building in the very heart of Barcelona's Ciutat Vella, has a fully renovated elevator to take you from the large and spacious entrance to the fourth floor where the apartment is located. With bars, clubs and hundreds of restaurants right on the doorstep of the apartment, you do not need to go far to enjoy all that the old town of Barcelona has to offer. A holiday stay at this convenient accommodation will make your adventures around Barcelona easy to plan.

The area surrounding the apartment:

The Carmelo I apartment is located right in the middle of Barcelona city, making it accessible to all areas of interest in Barcelona such as the Gothic Quarter, Las Ramblas, El Borne and Plaça Catalunya. A short walk from the apartment you will find the superb food and produce market called La Boqueria on Las Ramblas, an absolute must for any visitor to Barcelona. The apartment offers a quiet reprive from the bustling and very busy Las Ramblas but close enough for guests to walk to where the action is - two to three minutes on foot.

Walk out the front door of the apartment building and walk across the street and you will find yourself in the heart of the very trendy El Borne area, one of Barcelona's oldest neighbourhoods. El Borne is made up of an intricate maze of plaças and squares all interconnected by narrow, medieval streets where you will find lots of trendy boutiques and great bars, cafes and restaurants. Another option for the visitor staying at this great Barcelona apartment is to visit the Gothic quarter situated right in the heart of the old town. This is the area that fell within the medieval walls and, until 150 years ago, made up the entire city of Barcelona. The area is a body of interconnecting narrow, cobble stoned streets where you can potter around for hours and explore the shops and restaurants.

As you can see, should you choose to stay at the Carmelo I apartment during your visit to Barcelona, you will literaly find yourself in the heart of Barceona's Ciutat Vella.

The apartment:

This lovely apartment is one of several we can offer in the building. The photographs are a selection of the various units. The apartments may vary slightly in the layout or décor but the features are the same. Your specific apartment will be allocated on arrival.

The Carmelo I apartment has been completely renovated and modernized to achieve the quality and high standard necessary to make this a luxury apartment for our visitor to Barcelona. You can see this from the moment you step into the tastefully, classically styled foyer, as well as the perfectly preserved façade of the building. Even the elevator has been refurbished to retain its turn of the century origin (thankfully with up to the minute machinery). The master bedroom has a double bed while the second bedroom contains two single beds. The decor of each bedroom has been kept tasteful and uncomplicated and there are large wardrobes in both bedrooms so that all visitors will have plenty of room for their belongings.

The living room area of the apartment encompasses the comfortable and stylish sofa and coffee table; this area is great for chilling out and relaxing after a hard day's shopping or sightseeing! It is here that sunlight pours into the apartment from floor to ceiling though the large windows creating a lovely relaxed ambience. The extremely modern and stylish sofa dominates the room and lends just the correct touch of warmth and colour. Between the modern and fully equipped kitchen and the living rooom you will find the dining room, with a dining table and chairs for up to six people.

The bathroom contains the bath, shower, sink and toilet, while a second bathroom has a shower, sink and toilet units. The main bathroom is en suite to the bedroom containing the queen sized bed.

The kitchen is fully equipped with state of the art appliances such as the vitro ceramic cooker, the oven which also doubles as a microwave, washing machine and dryer and fridge freezer, all of which are top of the line. You will also find all of the comforts of home such as toaster, juicer etc, to make your visit to Barcelona easy and stress free. Bed linens, bathroom paper and clean towels are all provided.
