A stylish apartment in the heart of Barcelona's Ciutat Vella.

This stylishly designed apartment is in a prime central location on Via Laietana: it is on the penthouse floor of the building and is all exterior with plenty of natural light. The recently refurbished building in the very heart of Barcelona's Ciutat Vella has a fully renovated elevator to take you from the large and spacioius entrance to the top floor. 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 Matisse 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 it is a mere two to three minutes' walk to where the action is.

Walk out the front door of the apartment building and across the street and you will find yourself in the heart of the very trendy El Borne area, one of Barcelona's oldest neighbourhoods. It is an intricate maze of plaças and squares all interconnected by narrow, medieval streets. Here you will find lots of trendy boutiques and great bars, cafés and restaurants. Another option for the visitor staying at this fantastic 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 that up 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 exploring the shops and restaurants.

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

The apartment:

The Matisse 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 facade of the building. Even the elevator has been refurbished to retain its turn of the century origin (thankfully with up to the minute machinery). This penthouse apartment is perfect for four to seven people and caters to their every need. The master bedroom has a queen size bed and an ensuite bathroom which has a large bath, while the second bedroom contains two single beds and the third bedroom has a single bed. The decor of each bedroom has been kept tasteful and uncomplicated and there is plenty of wardrobe space so that all visitors will have room for their belongings.

The living room of the apartment is good for relaxing and resting after a long day out and about sightseeing, or after a day at the beach. The sofa converts into a sofa bed for the other guests. The lovely caramel coloured hardwood floor throughout the apartment gives the apartment just the right amount of warmth.

The ensuite bathroom to the master bedroom contains the bath, shower, sink and toilet, while a completely seperate second bathroom has a wonderfully spacious walk in shower as well as sink unit. 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, fridge/freezer and dishwasher, all of which are top of the line. You will also find all of the comforts of home - such as a coffee maker, toaster and juicer - to make your visit to Barcelona easy and stress free. Bed linen, bathroom paper and clean towels are all provided.

This apartment is essential when considering a top of the line, luxury holiday in Barcelona with perfect location.

Please note that the utility bills of the apartment are included in the rent with a limit of 200€/month. If the limit is exceeded, Friendly Rentals will charge the difference from the damage deposit.

The location is amazing. Check-in process was very friendly and accommodating, also very helpful and informative. The apartment is nicely and simply furnished - very clean and comfortable. Water and heat worked well. Balcony is a nice touch - great views. Building is very quiet and private. I was very pleased with my choice.
Ironing board was broken and unusable - which was the only appliance I really tried to use. It would have been nice to have had a little sample basket of essentials in the apartment - like a sponge and dishwashing liquid, dishwasher detergent, laundry detergent etc. Not much to dislike, really

Appartement is goed bevallen en voor locatie willen wij terugkomen. wel een paar puntjes die aandacht kunnen krijgen voor de volgende gasten: 1)in beide slaapkamers aan de straatzijde sloten de deuren/ramen aan de bovenkant niet goed af; gevolg lawaai en kou door de gleuf. 2) Strijkplank klapt niet goed in/uit elkaar. 3) Handdoekrail in en-suite badkamer werd niet warm. 4) In de woonkamer ontbrak een of twee gordijnpanelen. 5) Onderdelen van dweil ontbraken zodat niet gedweild kon worden. 5) Er ontbraken glazen/borden die volgens omschrijving aanwezig waren voor 8 personen; ik hoop niet dat wij de rekening krijgen voor ontbreekende keukengerei aangezien er ter plaatse geen check-in was!

Highly convenient and very high standard of furnishing for a rental apartment. Good living space with ample possibility of privacy when used by four or five people. Although the apartment was not ready at time due to problems caused by previous guests(?!) we very much appreciated the way you solved this problem. It was impeccably clean on arrival and we thank you for your really friendly way to accommodate us with our luggage. We really enjoyed our stay and hope to come back to Barcelona.
