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 Eixample

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.

Loved this cute flat!

  • 5 of 5

This cute little flat is perfectly placed for all things Barcelona! Close to all of the main tourist attractions (Sigrada Familia, Casa Batllo, Gothic Quarter, Beaches, Las Ramblas) as well as transportation we were very pleased with Jose's flat for our vacation. Jose is an excellent host who greeted us and provided excellent suggestions for dining, shopping as well as how to get to Camp Nou and the train station. We would love to visit Barcelona again and Jose's flat would be exactly where we would stay.

Very nice, quiet property; owner is exceptional

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect place for our stay in Barcelona. It is in an exceptionally quiet area, but very close to shopping and important sights like the Sagrada Familia. Pictures of the listing are accurate, and it is VERY clean and well-maintained. The kitchen had everything we needed for our family of 3 and simple meals during our stay.

We arrived so very tired and the owner went out of his way to help us get safely to the apartment, settle in, and he oriented us to the apartment and to the surroundings. He gave us a map and careful directions to help us find groceries and a wonderful tapas bar nearby.

We spent the week seeing everything in Barcelona, and we were close to bus and metro routes. The proximity was great.

A final note - my daughter travels with us, and she is in a power wheelchair. It is a little challenging to find accommodations in European countries for wheelchairs! This apartment was excellent - the elevator to the apartment is large enough, and most doors were wide enough. There was room to maneuver the wheelchair. Shower has a wand. The only difficulty is the width of the bathroom door, but we were able to overcome that with a manual transfer chair.

We would stay here again in a heartbeat. The city was wonderful, and the apartment felt like home. Jose Antonio cared for us like family.

Owner's Response: Hello Melanie and family. Great to hear that you enjoyed your stay both at the apartment and at the city. I hope also that you have had a good stay also during your cruise after Barcelona. It was nice to have you, your husband and daugther at my apartment. Yes you are right apartment is not completely adapted to a power wheelchair however as you say as this is a modern buidling and apartment, you can manage with it. Hope you had a good return to your city and hope to see you again. Thanks again for your stay.

We really liked the location of José's condo. It was a good comfortable space to stay.

  • 5 of 5

We had a really wonderful time staying at José's condo. It was quite comfortable and it was a few minutes from La Sagrada Familia. It was an easy walk (20-25 mins) to Plaza Catalunya and only an 8-10

Euros cab ride to the beaches. There were many restaurants just outside the condo and the a lot of cafes and grocery stores within a 2 block radius of the the condo.

We would definitely comeback and stay at any of José's properties.

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.
