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 buy four additonal appartments in the same building and for the same reasons.

Right now i own and manage 5 properties in this building.

Un excellent séjour!

  • 5 of 5

Avant notre arrivée, les contacts par le net avec José furent rapides et efficaces.

À notre arrivée, il a pris le temps de nous informer de tous les éléments pertinents de l'appartement de des activités à effectuer. Il a mis tout en oeuvre pour que notre séjour soit des plus agréables.

L'appartement était propre et conforme aux images sur le net. C'est un quartier calme et sécuritaire. Presque tout peut se faire à pied.

Un des membres de notre groupe était en fauteuil roulant. L'appartement est bien adapté. D'ailleurs la ville de Barcelone est la plus accessible que nous ayons visitée à ce jour.

Nous recommandons chaleureusement cet appartement

Great Property, Great Host

  • 5 of 5

Jose met us at the property and gave us lots of helpful information about the city. He also called us a cab for our departure which was very helpful.

The property is nice and modern with all of the amenities one would expect. The location is great and you can get anywhere in the city in short order via the nearby metro station. I would definitely consider staying here again if I was back in Barcelona.

Good apartment

  • 4 of 5

This was a nice little apartment in a quiet part of town. It was a fair walk to the park and beach which are the best Barcelona attractions for young kids, but the longer walk probably meant a quieter/safer place. It was safe and family friendly.

Jose was a very great host and accommodated everything we needed even on very short notice (such as a highchair). The apartment itself is small but clean and everything worked.

All in all a good start for a good price.

Comfy, clean and bright!

  • 5 of 5

Had a nice 5 night stay here. Jose was fantastic, even meeting us much earlier than our time stated and walked us through everything, giving us great tips on transportation, things to see as well as restaurants and grocery stores close by.

Both of the beds were extremely comfy, something that's hard to come by in Europe!

Everything that was needed was there, except for paper towels/napkins.

Jose even arranged for a taxi to pick us up for the airport at 2 in the morning on our departure day! We would definitely stay again.

Wonderful rental

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is exactly as described and pictured. It is bright and fully equipped for all a traveler's needs. Comfortable and very clean. WiFi is fast and reliable. Quiet. Located in a real local neighborhood away from the tourist hordes - yet well connected for either on-foot or public transportation anywhere in the city. The owner, Jose, is honest and forthright. He met us both coming and going on time. His integrity never flagged. Highly recommended.

Very neat and clean

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed being close to the city center and the walk was only 15 minutes. Jose met us at the entrance to the apartment and hailed a cab for us at departure. Jose was a very gracious introduction to Barselona We had difficulty running the washing machine but I would stay here again.

Owner's Response: Hello Cecelia and friends. Thanks again for your stay at my apartment and for your words. I hope you are having a great time "en el camino". Yes i can imagine that putting a program of 3 hours at washing machine is really a bit desesparating, when you had programs of 30 and 20 minutes. Now you know better how works washing machines at Spain. :) . Hope to see you again. Take care.

LOCATION: Comments from the guests:

Michael (Oregon) said.........The apartment is very central and almost everything is within a 15 to 20 minute walk; including La Rambla & the old quarter, Sagrada Familia, Placa Catalunya & the Beach.........

Reg said.......Jose's apartment was perfect for us in Barcelona. It was close to the metro, Sagrada Familia (awesome day and night), and Las Ramblas. We originally planned on renting in the Gothic quarter but actually preferred the ability to have a quiet evening (and SLEEP) that the Eixample provides. The great beaches are a short metro ride away, as is the rest of Barcelona..........
