The apartment is in a completely renovated building containing 4 almost identical apartments. The building was renovated in 2004 and the end result is 4 lovely 1 bedroom apartments suitable for vacacion or business rentals. The feel is of a cool and bright space where it is easy to relax and take it easy.
The area surrounding the apartment:
The apartment is situated right in the centre of Barcelona, literally minutes' walk from the main Square or Plaça called Plaça Catalunya, the famous Las Ramblas, the old town or Gothic Quarter and Borne. The area itself which surrounds the apartment is a body of interconnecting narrow cobble stoned streets where you can wander around aimlessly for hours imagining how it was back in medieval times. The closest point of interest to the apartment is the Palau de la Música which is possibly the most dazzling work of modernist architecture present in Barcelona. This is located a mere 50 meters from the apartment building. Other areas of interest within walking distance from the apartment are the famous Las Ramblas, the Liceu opera house, the Barcelona City Hall on Plaça Jaume, the grandiose Gothic Cathedral which is one block from the apartment as well as the remains of the old Roman Walls coupled with many more treats from Barcelona's ancient and medieval past.
This lovely 1 bedroom apartment is on the 1st floor of a recently renovated building with elevator and can accommodate up to 4 guests.
The open plan living-dining-kitchen area is bright and has large windows which allow lots of sunlight to stream in. The sofa converts into a double bed for the third and fourth guests. There is a TV with satellite channels and a DVD player. The dining table and 4 chairs can comfortably seat all of the guests should you choose to eat in instead of choosing from one of the many fantastic restaurants which surround you. The kitchen comes equipped with dishwasher, microwave, fridge, combination washer/dryer, pots and pans, kettle, toaster, etc...
The bedroom has a double bed and a lovely antique wardrobe. There is also access to a very small balcony where you can stand and watch the world go by below. In the hallway leading to the bedroom there is wardrobe space where the third and fourth guests can store their belongings.
The bathroom comes complete with bath/shower, toilet and washbasin. Fresh towels are provided for guests on arrival.
The apartment has air-conditioning (hot and cold) throughout to make your stay enjoyable whatever the season and there is wireless internet for the business traveller or for catching up with family back home.
Guests from this building will have the use of a communal roof terrace during the summer months.
Whatever the reason for your stay in Barcelona, the Tosca apartment will make it an enjoyable one.

El Born is one of the trendiest neighbourhoods in Barcelona and has become even more so over the last few years, combining a perfect balance between historical treasures, culture and “coolness”; an area very much sought after by the locals as well as the visitors. This area also boasts some of the highest property prices in the city …. This wonderful neighbourhood is full of many great bars, cafes, restaurants and is especially great for one of a kind boutiques as well as other, very well known clothing brands, such as Custo. The Born area is in such a great location, close to the Old Port and the beach, it’s surrounded by all the other cool and interesting places in Barcelona such as Barrio Gotico, Barceloneta, Old Port and Via Laietana. The Park Ciutadella is also a quick 5 minute walk from this area, perfect for a long stroll after a lovely lunch in one of the many terraces the Born has to offer.
A main feature of this great area is the wonderful basilica Santa Maria del Mar, right in front of this magnificent landmark, Barcelona’s guests can enjoy tapas and wine and watch the world go by…Other spots not to miss include Paseo del Born which is full of great bars and makes this area a lively night spot; not far from here is the Picasso museum….. The Born also has it’s own market, Santa Catarina with it’s funky, bright coloured roof. And finally not to be forgotten is the fantastic Palau de la Musica, which is possibly the most dazzling work of modernist architecture present in Barcelona….

Great location and well equipped, especially the kitchen. We saved alot of money preparing meals instead of eating out. The staff is very friendly and helpful. We were able to walk or take the metro everywhere we needed to go. This was a much better experience than staying in a hotel, for a lower cost.
Kim, United States 15 June 2010
We were so pleased with how clean the apartment was and was in good condition. It was also well equipped with everything we needed. There was plenty of room and we totally enjoyed staying there. We found this apartment through Slowtrav.com. The comments from others that have rented this apartment were exact, and the pictures of the apartment, it's location and it's accommodations were exact. We had no surprises. We had a wonderful stay and we will certainly book with Friendly Rentals again. Thank you so much! Susan & Bob from USA

There was nothing we did not like. Those helping us were friendly and offered to help us anyway they could. We did have difficulties with the internet the first day we arrived, but someone came and fixed it right away. We have only positive comments and recomendations for this apartment and this agency. Thanks for your quality service. We really appreciate it. Susan & Bob USA
