39 Steps

Live like a true (very stylish) Barcelonian. 39 Steps is only 30 paces from the posh end of the famous Ramblas. Turn left, cross La Ramblas and you're into beautiful Barri Gotic, Barcelona's medieval heart. And a mere ten minute stroll from the Med.  Turn right out of the door and and you're in the funky El Raval area. 


£125 per night Sun-Thu and £155 per night on Fri and Sat.  Minimum stay of two nights. SPECIAL OFFER: Stay four nights and get your last night free using BARCA4 in the rate code box when you  book.

The apartment faces on to Carrer Bon Success - packed with bakeries, cafes, bars and restaurants. 39 Steps is close to MACBA, the Museum of Modern Art.

We prime the apartment with all the basics and some lovely extras - tea/ground coffee/toiletries/oranges and a complimentary bottle of Cava. Collapse. Recuperate. Explore.

This one-bedroom serviced apartment lies on the second floor of an old building (1788 to be precise). Historical features, such as the tiny Juliet balcony, provide the perfect foil for a gorgeous modern interior. The living room's French windows look out over Carrer Bon Success: world class people-watching. The galley kitchen and bathroom are sleek and modern. There's a simple, relaxing double bedroom at the quiet rear of the building.

Things that guests love about 39 Steps

  • The beautiful, timeworn marble stairs
  • Gorgeous modern interior in a historic building
  • Feeling like a local
  • It's perfectly located
  • Air conditioning and heating from one unit
  • Funky, walk-in shower

Things that they might not

  • A Louis Vuittton steamer trunk would be nigh on impossible to get up the narrow staircase
  • There's no oven, just a hob, microwave, toaster, kettle and espresso maker - but who wants to cook with all those lovely restaurants nearby?
  • The TV can only be used to watch DVDs
