About Jose Antonio Rodriguez

Hello I am Jose Antonio, a 55 years old man, working as an economist of profession in a non profit organization (OXFAM) and managing my owns appartments.

Jose Antonio Rodriguez purchased this apartment in 1997

Why Jose Antonio Rodriguez chose Barcelona

I bought this apartment in 1997, and it was my own home during 8 years. Because family was increasing i need to change to another apartment bigger, but in the same area that was the area that i like to live. I filled a bit nostalgic to leave the appartment as a my own home.

Since them i have been renting the apartment for tourist and professional reasons. As the experience has been so good for clients and for me. Later i decided to by four additonal appartments in the same building and for the same reasons.

The property was centrally located and had everything necessary for a comfortable stay.

  • 4 of 5

Jose was an excellent host. He met us at the property after a late arrival and gave us a detailed orientation to both the apartment and Barcelona in general, including transit, local markets, restaurants and tourist attractions. I can't say enough about the hospitality. The air conditioning was a blessing given the late July-early August heat. The apartment was very quiet at night and was well-suited for our family of three.

Safe and Quiet, Good Location

  • 4 of 5

The apartment is in a residential neighborhood close to Sagrada Familia.

The A/C broke while we were staying, but Jose came over within 15 minutes of our call and installed a portable A/C the next day.

It is within walking distance of both the Gothic Quarter and Sagrada Familia.

Excellent Apartment

  • 5 of 5

Jose was very helpful from initial email correspondence through to meeting us on our first day, showing us around the apartment and explaining the Metro, sites to see, local shops and lots of useful information about Barcelona which added to the enjoyment of our trip. The apartment is in a safe, central, residential location within easy reach of local shops, restaurants, Metro, Sagrada Familia, Catalyuna and just 5 stops from the beach. It's well equipped for a comfortable stay and Jose is available by phone should any advice be needed. Thoroughly recommended.

Amazing experience, thanks Jose!

  • 5 of 5

Jose was an excellent host throughout our time in Barcelona from waiting for us on arrival, giving us a tour of the apartment so that we could settle in straightaway, providing hints and tips including maps and other useful information so that we could make the most of our stay, and finally, storing our luggage for us after we checked-out so that we could go kill some time before our flight. The apartment itself was excellent for a family of four, with all modern conveniences and with a lift up to the 5th floor where we stayed. The kids loved it, they had a bed each to themselves with a separate room for us parents therefore it worked great for everyone. The location was right next to a wide choice cafes, shops, and restaurants (the Mian is about 10 minutes walk & excellent if you love Chinese food); two metro stations are about 15 minutes away and the main Barcelona sights, La Sagrada Familia, the Gaudi buildings, La Ramblas, Ciutadella park, to name a few, are all within walking distance. We had a car for a couple of days to make

some day trips; street parking is available between 8pm and 8am which worked for us otherwise there's an underground parking garage right next to the apartment. In conclusion, the apartment comes highly recommended and you'll have all the help you need with Jose as host.

A Review

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in the apt. It had 2 adequate bedrooms, and we had our adult daughter come stay with us. Convenient to 2 subway lines and varied buses, as well as large supermarkets and small stores. The apt. was very clean and good, hot water in shower. The living room was a good size for 3 people, but overhead lighting was insufficient for reading. The washing machine and dishwasher worked well. We could have used additional full-size coffee cups and glasses for morning and evening use. Jose Antonio Rodriguez was an excellent host. He fully explained all the apt. functions, left detailed info about the transportation availability, and most important, he made two separate calls to arrange for taxis to take first our daughter to the airport, and the next day, for a taxi to take us to the airport. We would be happy to stay here on a future trip to Barcelona.
