Property type apartment

About the property

Apartment, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

Description of the apartment -

· Beautiful 2 bedroom apartment with a glass-enclosed balcony on the 5th floor of an 100-year-old Art Nouveau building, renovated outside and inside. The floors are still the original colorful mosaic, and the ceilings are 9 feet high. There is an elevator, air conditioning, central heating, and a full kitchen with granite countertop, pots & pans, dishes, etc. One full bathroom with toilet, sink, and half-tub with shower. The living room has a dining table and chairs, a sofa, a 21-inch TV, DVDs, etc. You can see the tips of La Sagrada Familia from the enclosed balcony.

The apartment fits one to four although an occupancy of three-maximum four would be the ideal for the size.

In case your dates are not available in this apartment, we have seven other 2 bedroom apartments in the same building. Please see our other VRBO ads or our website.

Description of location -

· The apartment is located in the beautiful Eixample, halfway between Gaudi's La Pedrera (also known as Casa Milà) on the Passeig de Gracia, and Gaudi's La Sagrada Familia, just a ten-minute walk from either one. Casa Amatller and Casa Batlló are at the same short distance as well. The Eixample district has the most beautiful Art Nouveau architecture in the city dating from the last half of the XIX century.

There are many cafes, restaurants, tapas bars, and shops in the neighborhood also. The 115-year-old Market of La Concepció, where you can do your grocery shopping in a traditional setting, is just 200 meters from the apartment. This market has fresh meat, fruits & vegetables, cheeses, etc. as well as a florist and a grocery store with a good selection of local wines.

The Eixample is recommended as a convenient location to see all the different sights around the city, but not as crowded as the Old City. You can get a taste of real local life.

Transportation -

· There is a bus stop on the corner right by the apartment that will take you to almost all the places of interest in the city, if you don't feel like walking. The city buses are nice and modern, and run often. The apartment is also less than 5 minutes walking from the metro station of Verdaguer, on both the yellow and blue lines. The upscale shopping street, Passeig de Gracia, is just 1 stop away, though you can easily walk there from the apartment. Plaza Catalunya (the very center of the city and also walkable) and the start of Las Ramblas is just a 6 minute metro ride away, and the beaches are just a 10 minute ride. There is also a parking garage close to the apartment, although renting a car in Barcelona is not recommended.

About the management -

· We are a family company and we manage our own holiday apartments or furnished homes in three cities: 25 in Barcelona (Spain), 6 in Istanbul (Turkey) and 2 in Dallas (Texas, US)

Guestbook comments from the owner

Staying at the Valencia A apartments was one of the highlights of our trip to Spain. The apartment exceeded our expectations and I have told my friends and family this will be the place I choose to stay anytime I come to Barcelona. The location was great, the apartment was spacious and I loved having a balcony and rooftop terrace. I want to thank you for all your help with booking and answering my questions. We had an amazing trip and I think having a place to call home for the week greatly contributed to a memorable trip. Hope to make it back to Barcelona soon! Eric, New York, NY

Very nice

  • 4 of 5

This was one of the 2 apartments we rented , everything in order clean nice spaces and air conditioning working the beds are not very comfortable, this along with better pillows would be a huge plus, the downfall is that all of these apartments have no internet so if your lucky you may be able to send a message but don't count on it !!!! I did realize a bit to late that just next door there's a little crepes place with great cappuccinos best juices and they have Internet, had I know earlier it would have helped , great location envenena though we had some problems I would recommend these apartments

The location was great; the furnishings in lv room could use more comfortable siofa and TV with BBC

  • 4 of 5

We liked the location; beds were comfortable and liked all the pillows. However, the lv room furnishings could be updated with more comfortable sofa, and TV with BBC or Fox News for foreigners. We did not use the kitchen... although it was complete for cooking. The bath room is VERY small/ only enough space for one person and no place to place personal items. However, we would probably return... value for price OK.

Loved Barcelona!

  • 4 of 5

The apartment was very conveniently located. It was within walking distance to Sagrada Familia and Gaudi's buildings. It was close to the metro and buses. The apartment was nice and it was quiet at night and in a safe neighborhood. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Barcelona.

Canadians in Barcelona

  • 3 of 5

Spacious enough for the 3 of us. Close to all metro and bus lines. Never met a Greeter or any representative the whole time, so nice all the codes worked. Little misleading on the need to be so careful of the flooring, when the whole apartment is aged and in need of a little TLC. Overall happy with our choice.

Great Location

  • 4 of 5

The apart just as described, cliean, wifi, etc.. heads up though no, toiletries provided so be sure to stop by the little shopping mart down the street to purchase soap, toilet paper (one roll provided) and other essentials.

The apt. is in a great location literally a few steps away from La Sagrada Familia, walking distance from the Metro. Our greeter Katia was very helpful and nice, she provided local maps and guidence on how to get around Barcelona using the metro, she pointed out areas to avoid as well as "must see" sights. Safety is extremely important for 2 girls traveling alone, we felt safe in this apartment and neighborhood. Would definately book with Negre apartment rentals again.

Owner's Response: For the bathroom, besides towels, we provide 2 rolls of toilet paper per bathroom (perhaps not this time!) and liquid hand soap. We do not provide tooth brushes or shampoo.
