Show the property description
Wonderful and very tastefully decorated one bedroom apartment in the heart of the Eixample area, .

This one bedroom apartment really is quite spectacular; it has been recently refurbished and offers a quieter reprieve to the hustle and bustle of the Ciutat Vella. Still conveniently located not far from Las Ramblas and Paseo de Gracia it is a great choice for your visit to Barcelona.

The area surrounding the apartment:

The Manhattan apartment is situated in the heart of Barcelona's Eixample district, the birthplace of the Modernism movement where Antoni Gaudí is considered the leader. When looking to experience Barcelona's world renowned reputation for leading 19th century architecture, this area is king. There are many "must see" attractions in this area, especially the Gaudí sites - the impressive and famous Sagrada Familia, the two famous Gaudí houses La Pedrera and Casa Batlló in the Manzana de la Discordia and the sprawling Hospital de la Santa Creu in Sant Pau - all within walking distance.

The apartment:

The photos above of this superb one bedroom apartment really speak for themselves; the Ceesepe apartment is an absolute must for the visitor who is looking for quality, outstanding decor and a slightly quieter choice of apartment yet still central.

The Manhattan apartment is extremely stylish it its decor, maintaining a modern, sharp and up to the minute look while still making the guest feel welcome and comfortable.

Most of the aparmtent's walls feature exposed brick which has been painted white in most areas but has been kept to its natural look in the bedroom. This room is particularily bright as it has a very large window which allows the visitor to basque in lots of natural light. If, however, the visitor wished to slumber away in the comfortable king size bed there are heavy curtains that make sleep-ins a reality... the sidetables and reading lights of the bedroom are also very modern and unusual, as well as the POP ART used to decorate and add colour to the bedroom. A feature to be found throughout the apartment is the great use of POP ART and other modern paintings, which add great colour to each area of the apartment!

The high standard and decor of the apartment has been maintained throughout, as can clearly be seen from the photos above. The living/dining area of the apartment is fabulous; the clever use of contrasting colours such as black and white, in combination with the warm caramel tones of the sofa make this area extremely inviting and a pleasant area to spend some time chilling out (the sofa is a double pull out sofa bed, perfect for the 3rd and 4th guests to sleep in); or listening to some music on the state of the art music system or catching a movie on the DVD or having some fun with the MP3 - the tall standing black shelving unit gives it a feel of being seperate from the dining area. Here the guests can use the funky topped table and four chairs to enjoy whatever meal they decide to prepare in the kitchen.

The kitchen is wonderful, tucked behind the black shelf unit it feels seperate from the rest of the apartment but not isolated. The contrast of black and white make it a very "good looking" kitchen, it is very modern and uncomplicated; it comes with all the mod cons to make your visit a hassle free one.

The bathroom does not disappoint. Perhaps one of the nicest features of the apartment is the glass bricked wall used to seperate this room from the rest of the apartment; it creates an interesting look and feel. Once inside the bathroom the guest will love it! Only the best italian design from the sink to the shower and throughout the bathroom, it will thrill any guest!

The Manhattan apartment is a true delight for any visitor to Barcelona. Not only does the apartment boast a tranquil feel and has plenty of natural light, it is still within walking distance of all the sights Barcelona has to offer!

This Manhattan apartment is one of two apartments in this building; its sister apartment is the Lorca studio. So it could be perfect for a family gathering or a group of friends looking to spend a quiet and quality filled break in Barcelona.

Please note that this apartment is on the first floor, but is a real third floor as there are "principal" and "entresuelo" levels. The building has an elevator.

For quality, super style and comfort the Manhattan apartment is a great choice for your visit to Barcelona!

The location of this apartment is perfect! It's close to all the key tourist stuff, but quiet enough to let you escape and experience the beauty and pace of real life in Barcelona. The king bed is very comfortable. Kitchen is well stocked. Washer works well (clothes line drying--FYI). There are numerous wonderful shops, cafes, and restaurants on every corner in this classy neighborhood. Buy amazing espresso and baguettes right across the street. A large market for groceries is 2 blocks away. The owner of this property (Raimundo) was so helpful, he let us check in early, and he clearly takes pride in making this apartment a gem. I would definitely stay again!

Great apartment & design. Raimundo is a very nice host and very helpful. Nice location, close to metro stop, grocery stores and restaurants. You can walk to La Sagrada Familia from the apartment. Raimundo called a taxi to take us to the airport but the taxi's meter starts from the time it arrives at your doorstep, so be ready! To airport about 27 euros + 5 euros for waiting taxi.

The apartment was exactly as described, maybe a little smaller than the photos showed, but tastefully and thoughtfully 'Ikea' equipped. We wanted to take the bed home as it was so very comfortable !! Location great and very peaceful at night. Just a short walk from some of Gaudi's greatest work. Delightful owner who answered all our questions and made us feel very welcome to Barcelona and for whom nothing was too much trouble. We would thoroughly recommend Manhattan.

1. Sehr netter Vermieter, der sich sehr viel Zeit beinm ein und auschecken genommen hat. Es wurden uns alles genau erläutern und uns ganz viele Tipps zum erkundigen von Barcelona gegeben. Zusätzlich noch Infos bei der Abreise, wie man einfach und sehr günstig zum Flughafen kommt. 2. Sehr schönes, modernes und sauberes Appartment. Auch in der kälteren Jahreszeit gut, da eine dicke Bettdecke vorhanden ist und nicht eine dünne, wie dies in Spanien üblich. 3. Appartment ist sehr gut ausgestattet 4. Gegend und Lage ist wirklich sehr gut. Man findet immer ein nettes Lokal in der Nähe und die Metro und viele Sehenswürdigkeiten sind nur wenige Minuten entfernt.

Apartment was wonderful. The location was a short walk from all kinds of shops and train stops, yet the street was quiet and not at all hectic. Raimundo was extremely helpful getting us settled in the apartment, giving us good advice on where to eat and how to get around. This was our second Friendly Rentals experience and again, it was outstanding.
