About the property

Apartment, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

Description of the apartment -

Bright two bedroom and 2 bathroom apartment with very high ceilings, two open balconies and one enclosed balcony, on 2nd floor, with elevator. This apartment still has the 100+ years old mosaic floors (a different design in every room) and the original woodwork on the doors and windows. The apartment sleeps 4 people on one Queen size and one double bed. The ideal occupancy would be 4 people.

Description of location -

In the historic Eixample, built 1850-1910 during the golden age of the city, when the emigrants to the Americas where returning and investing their earnings back in the city. The beautiful buildings, most of them recently restored, reflect an age of plenty.

The apartment can be reached by taxi from the airport. It is close to the Verdaguer metro station, which sits on two metro lines. There are plenty of bus lines and also the taxi lane runs in front of the building.

Nearby services -

· There are small grocers at a very short distance and the neighborhood market just 200m away.

Noise levels -

· The apartment has double glazing and extra doors in the master bedroom. There will still be some traffic noise. The second bedroom is very quiet.

Great Location in Classic Bldg.

  • 4 of 5


• Great location.

• There is an elevator for the initial lugging of luggage up to the second floor.

• The apartment has been renovated with a new kitchen and bathrooms.

• There is an old world feel to the apartment,.

• A major plus, is the kitchen has a washer and dryer.

• The heat,hot water and water pressure were excellent.

• Great WIFI internet connection.

• The service was very good and responsive.


• The 2 B/R, 2/Bath has quirky floor plan.

• TVs didn’t have any English speaking stations. It would have been nice to have at least CNN or BBC World.

• The old world charm can also be read as dark. Fortunately, the windows are large and let in a lot of light.

• There is a paucity of dresser space in the MBR.

• The master bathroom has a tub/shower combo that is a bit awkward.

Beautiful building and very good location

  • 4 of 5

All arrangements were done very professionally. When arrived, a designated person came to the apartment shortly after we were in. She went over all issues and concerns carefully and was very responsive to our inquiries. The building is very nice and the apartment as well. The furniture is in good condition and all other amenities are accommodating. The reason I took a point away is just because when sleeping on the mattress in master bedroom one would sink into the mattress rather deep. Maybe this issue has been already noted and addressed but if not, I would suggest the owner/management to take my suggestion/comment to hear and replace the mattress.

My wife, my two daughters loved the apartment's location and the easy access to a lovely fresh market just down minutes away - nearby there are a number of very good restaurants for any occasion. Excellent location: La Rambla in walking distance (15 minutes)... So, we loved our stay in this apartment and would certainly stay here again if we should plan to return to Barcelona.

Never rent a hotel room again! Perfect for snoring couple - plus each gets own bathroom!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the Principito! Clean, comfortable, beautiful apartment - just as pictured - high ceilings, lots of windows, amazing tile floors, the architectural details really added to the ambiance. Totally modern kitchen and baths. (Could've used a shower curtain around tub, non-slip mat in shower, and a couple extra sets of towels, but washer/dryer saved the day.) Easy walk to Sagrada Familia, cafes, markets, with close-by bus, subway, and taxi stops to take you everywhere else. Prompt and courteous communications with owner and greeter. Would definitely stay here again should we be lucky enough to ever return to beautiful Barcelona! Thank you!

Perfect apartment!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our one-week stay in this apartment! Charming old-world feel, very spacious and well maintained. The tall ceiling is our #1 favorite feature, it makes the rooms seem so grand! Our #2 favorite feature is the large windows/doors that open to the balcony, with view of the gorgeous Sant Francesc cathedral across the street. Nicely furnished, good lighting (although the bathrooms could use more light above the sink) and excellent air condition system. The beds are comfortable, we slept like babies! 1 Large bathroom (love the huge bathtub!) and another small en-suite bathroom with plenty of plush towels. Kitchen has modern appliances, including flat-top stove, microwave, and dishwasher. We also liked the washer and dryer in the kitchen. Extremely convenient location, we walked to some nice restaurants in the neighborhood, one large fruit/vegetable market, a supermarket and bakery, etc. The famous Passeig de Gracia shopping district and Gaudi’s Casa Batllo are only 5 blocks away. Subway is also nearby, where we took the train to go to the beach and visit the Aquarium. Even though it is facing a busy intersection, the apartment is quiet at night, especially with all the windows closed. Wi-Fi connection went down once and management fixed it quickly. Kind, friendly staff. Many thanks to the wonderful manager Marielle for all her assistance. Highly recommend this apartment. Tip: Don’t forget to take the elevator to the roof-top terrace, the view is spectacular!

Simply wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

Cannot say enough nice things about our stay in Principito. Our group consisted of four women, my best friend, my two daughters (22 & 24) and myself. The level of customer service was evident right from the start. Quick replies to emails, great instructions with multiple transportation options to arrive at the apartment, multiple pay options, etc. Greeted at the apartment by Negre Apartments staff who made themselves readily available even when quite late the first night we forgot the code to re-enter the apartment and had to call them for assistance!

Lovely decor, very clean, comfortable, excellent air conditioning, nice balcony and rooftop terrace with a nice view of the Sagrada Familia and the Torre Agbar..... Less than a mile from Las Ramblas, Sagrada Familia, the beautiful Hospital de Sant Pau, the Catedral, museums, shopping, you name it while still maintaining a neighborhood feel! Easy access to bus and subway transport, and we never waited more than a few minutes on those rare occasions that we felt the need to hail a cab. Slightly further away but still within walking distance to the beach, the zoo, the Ciutadella Park, and all of the interesting and charming features of some of the neighborhoods like Gothic, Sants, Eixample, etc.

I would not change a thing if I had it to do over again. This lovely apartment was the perfect refuge to begin and end our days in Barcelona. Hoping to be back soon!

There are several cafes, markets, bakeries, bars and restaurants nearby. The lovely Salesians chrurch across the street adds to the charm as the tolling bells mark the hour.

Great location

  • 5 of 5

We definitely recommend this apartment. We were 2 retired couples and this apartment was perfect. Two full sized bedrooms, although the second one was on the small side, as well as two full bathrooms. Would be perfect for a family as well.

We arrived earlier than we had expected and the apartment was not ready. We were allowed to lock our luggage in a secure area which left us free to visit this beautiful city. When the apartment was read, we received a phone call to let us know. Katia, the greeter, met us there and gave us a complete rundown of the area. The apartment was as pictured - very charming with beautiful tiled floors and high ceilings, retaining the old world charm but still providing all of the modern amenities.

There was a small balcony overlooking the neighborhood as well as a shared rooftop terrace.Great place to enjoy a glass of wine after a long day of sightseeing. The apartment is conveniently located, very close to the Sagrada Familia and a short taxi ride to other attractions.

There was a small coffee shop across the street, La Crema, for morning cappuccino and a croissant as well as sandwiches and snacks.

If we ever return to Barcelona, and I hope we do, I would definitely stay here.
