Eixample apartment description

For value, comfort and access to the sights of Barcelona, this is the place.

Relax with a glass of wine on the inviting terrace faces Ciutadella Parc (Central Park of Barcelona).

If you have spent the day experiencing the excitement of Barcelona—including its unique hustle and bustle, noise and traffic— by now you are eager to retreat to a quiet location in a very SAFE residential neighborhood.
You can dash around the city all day and into the wee hours of the night and return here to a welcoming environment.

This secure, concierge building sits on a broad, tree- lined avenue 'Passeig Pujades' where you can experience the real Barcelona lifestyle.

There are fully stocked grocery stores, restaurants, terrace-cafes. All other conveniences, cleaners, pharmacy, a dentist and a doctor around the corner. All within one block!

In the morning you must stroll to the remodeled Santa Caterina market. Not only is it historic—the city’s first covered market in 1848—but well-stocked, too, and only three blocks away.

The bus stop is 2 doors up from the apartment and the metro stop: “Arc de Triomf” is literally around the corner.

The apartment is on the third floor (2 elevators), comfortably furnished and immaculately clean.

It has two bedrooms, the double bedroom with two European twin beds (3” wider than US twin and 6’7” long) and the single bedroom with one.

In the kitchen you’ll find everything you need for cooking.

The photos are recent and accurate, showing the fresh and well-maintained interior.

All costs are included (water, electricity, and end-of-stay cleaning).

Also be sure to read the comments from previous guests below. You’ll see I have a reputation for service and assistance beyond expectation.

GUESTS COMMENTS :
Guest: Don L. (Palo Alto - CA - US)

We will heartily recommend Dolores and her apartment to all our friends!
Located overlooking the Ciutadella Park and only three blocks from Barcelona's old city it was the ideal location.
The crowds and the noise of the city faded when we were in the apartment yet we were able to enjoy our breakfast and cocktails on the balcony; gazing at the activities below...joggers, bikers, strollers, people enjoying their café; it was a fascinating scene!

The apartment itself was well appointed with the luxury of a second bedroom which gave our daughter (a student in the area) the option of spending the night with us.
We can't overemphasize Dolores' vast knowledge of Barcelona as well as Spain. Not only did she guide us to the fabulous sites of the city but she also assisted us in planning a trip to Costa Brava (after helping us evaluate that vs. a trip to Madrid or Granada).

Unfortunately, while visiting Barcelona we experienced an emergency medical problem...however; Dolores assisted us in finding immediate medical treatment. Her translating talents helped immensely!

The apartment was exactly as shown in the photos, well laid out and very clean.
At first I thought having single beds would be too small but they are almost like a double bed and as long as a king size bed and very comfortable.

We enjoyed the coffee and cakes that Dolores left us upon our arrival out on the lovely balcony overlooking the park across the street. There is a fully stocked grocery store around the corner which helped as.

Dolores was very helpful and not only had a ton of brochures but also a map on the wall with all the sites shown and how to get to them, she also suggested a few places to dine which we went to and found them all excellent, no disappointments at all.
The apartment and location was perfect and I'd highly recommend staying there while in Barcelona.

Thank you so much for the use of your wonderful apartment and specially for making it so much like a home away from home.
The coffee, milk, and muffins were also so very much appreciated the morning we woke up!We sat on the balcony and played cards every evening before dinner.

We enjoyed watching the green birds that looked a little like parrots and we think we heard the elephant from the zoo once. While walking down Wellington Street one evening,we saw the lion up behind the fence and it roared at us!
It was such a sight! The location was just perfect.

                      Brooke & Greg (Shorewood, WI)

                      I have been dreaming of coming to Barcelona for several years and chose it for the place to spend a “BIG BIRTHDAY” it was a great decision. Spain is a jewel of Europe, Catalonia is a jewel of Spain, and Barcelona is a jewel of Catalonia. And this apartment is a jewel in Barcelona.

                      Of course, Dolores is at the heart of this, has created a home-away-from –home. We can dash around the city all day and return here to a quiet, safe and welcoming environment. And Dolores has been so helpful, showing us hospitality, and sharing her sincere love of Barcelona. This will always be a special time and place in my heart.

                       

                      Owner info

                      About the owner: It will be my pleasure to WELCOME YOU PERSONALLY with the best of Barcelona hospitality! Guests are further reassured that I am on hand all time for any help. Dolores! Reading the various comments made by past guests, might also help you to decide and find out more from a traveler’s perspective.

                      Why the Owner Chose Eixample:
                      Because I I live just round the corner for 40 years and I find is one of the best places to stay in Barcelona, close to everything,: The GOTHIC area,the Picasso Museum, the Palau de la Musica are just a stone's throw away from the apartment. CIUTADELLA PARC faces the apartment, has a peaceful atmosphere and is the perfect place both to relax and jog. It houses the Barcelona ZOO, and a waterfall. BEACHES, LA RAMBLA, at 15 min. walking distance.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
                      I LET MY GUESTS speak: Kathy (New York City) My husband, 8-year-old son and I just returned from 7 nights in Dolores' apartment. It was fabulous. It's clean, well-equipped, with a wonderful balcony overlooking a beautiful park. The bus stops right outside and the tram and metro are just mere blocks away to take you to all over the city. It was so nice to come home from a day of crowded sightseeing to this oasis. The neighborhood is safe and lovely, situatued between 2 cafes and filled with locals, not tourists. Some nights we ate dinner on the terrace with delicious local specialties purchased at the supermarket right around the corner, and we went to the park every night to enjoy the peace and quiet--it's also a great place to run every morning. It was also nice to know that Dolores was right around the corner if we had any questions or concerns. And she leaves so much information about Barcelona in the apartment, you never feel lost. I hope to have the chance to recommend this apartment to anyone I know visiting Barcelona. It was a treat to stay here.
