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

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

Week-long Barcelona Experience!

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is ideally located just north of the Old Town "Gothic Quarter" with all its shops and restaurants and is within walking distance of THREE metro stops allowing easy access to the entire rest of city. I personally walked to the Sagrada Familia within 10 minutes. Wow! Getting to the apartment from the airport is as simple as one Aerobus line and a 10-15 minute stroll from Placa Catalunya stop.

The neighborhood is quiet and has parks and play areas for children right next door. A few blocks away are many, many restaurants and outdoor cafes including great spots for tapas! The heavy noise insulating windows block out any noise from the street level. The kitchen is fully furnished with any needed utensils, pots, pans, refrigerator and microwave. There is even a washing machine which is great for longer stays.

Most importantly, Jose stayed in contact with me answering questions before my stay and met me right outside the apartment when I arrived to discuss local attractions, the location of the metro stops, and local must-see restaurants. I consider his level of professionalism and care well above average. A great rental! Thank you!

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..........
