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.

Wonderful stay at an ideal location

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four had a wonderful stay at this apartment. The host was extremely helpful. He communicated with me beforehand, answering all of my questions thoroughly and promptly. He was waiting for us outside the apartment when we arrived and took time to provide us with maps and information on the area. We enjoyed staying in this quiet residential neighborhood with train stations and restaurants nearby. I highly recommend this apartment.

A well presented, perfectly located apartment, with an extremely helpful owner

  • 5 of 5

Having never been to Barcelona we settled on this apartment as it was located just on the edge of the main central areas all within 10 mins walk and next to three different subway stations. The apartment was in a nice enough block, and itself well presented with all amenities and most importantly very clean. The location in our view was the best thing, simply because it's in a mainly residential area 10 mins walk from the tourist areas and main sights. The subway is 2 blocks and so easy to use to get to the beach in 10 minutes, and the nou camp was easily accessible by walking to Verdagauer station. There are also a number of restaurants and bars in the vicinity.

Jose was a very accommodating host, and showed flexibility by meeting us at 0100 after a late flight in, which we appreciated. He gave us the run down of where to go and suggested places to eat nearby for brunch and dinner.

We were there for a long weekend and for a family of four the accommodation was just right making our stay really enjoyable. I would definitely rent again next time we return.

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.
