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 Dreta de l'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.

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

This lovely apartment overlooks a rather good sized park and as it is on the 5th floor, it is filled with indirect light.

Walking distance to many of Barcelona's museums, parks, etc.

A warm and attentive welcome!

Nice apartment, and excellent Host!

  • 5 of 5

Jose was attentive to all our needs, and always went above and beyond to ensure our stay was the best possible. Very good communications. He fixed a possible problem with the door lock immediately, and even delivered the new keys to us at a restaurant. Very accommodating. He gave us good advice, and helped with transportation (taxis). The location of the apartment was good, near metro stations, and many of the tourist sights in Barcelona. Very safe neighborhood and property. The apartment was clean and everything worked fine. The biggest drawback is the design of the apartment complex allows for noise to transmit easily, especially with the widows open. Not a problem with the windows closed. The playground is noisy all day, not at night, but also kinda cute to watch the kids at play. Be prepared for small bedrooms, we had 5 people, and fit fine, but the bedrooms are tight. The beds were fine. Kitchen had all the basics, and was fine for our needs, we ate out most of the time. Thanks Jose!

Owner's Response: Dear David and family. Thansk again for your stay. Great that you are all safe at home. Yes you are right apartment is a little tight for 5 adults people. As is setlle on the site, it is 60m2, then is good for small stays, for longer stay is better for maximun 3 adults. At the back the play ground is actively. I know that there is some noise (kids playind..../not with windows close), however this is very well valorated for all my guest to see local life and enjoy. Hope to see you again, and thanks again for your 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.
