The simply sweet

Because I seek a compact spot in a great location

Will I like it here?

We think so.

This minimalist studio is all about the essentials. Keep it simple; life happens outside your door around here.

Really? Tell me more...

You will love this functional space. The combined living and sleeping area is cute with a dark feature wall, a double bed and a huge wardrobe. The shared kitchen is equipped and there is a small, standing balcony off the sleeping area. Easy living.

We think this apartment is ideal for someone who is always on-the-go. The famous Mercat de la Boqueria is nearby, and the waterfront is within a 15-minute walk too. You're right in amongst the action here.

Your top 3 reasons to rent here:

  • The crisp, modern decor. Simple but effective.
  • The sunny, shared terrace, of course.
  • Snap at selfie at nearby El Gat de Botero.

But you need to know this...

  • The kitchen is shared with another studio, but you have a half-sized refrigerator to yourself.
  • The terrace is shared with other tenants in the building.
