Overview

About the property

Apartment, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-6)

Description of the apartment -

· Beautiful and bright 2 bedroom apartment on the top (6th) floor of an 100-year-old modernist building, renovated outside and inside. The ceilings are still the originals, with artistic moldings. There is an elevator, air conditioning, central heating, and a full kitchen with granite countertop, pots & pans, dishes, etc. One full bathroom with shower, toilet, sink. The living room has a dining table and chairs, a sofa, a 21-inch TV, DVDs, etc. The apartment fits up to 4, an occupancy of 3-4 would be the ideal for the size.

The building's roof terrace is just upstairs from the apartment, with tables and chairs, plenty of sunshine, and views to Sagrada Familia. Please note it is a shared terrace.

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. Almost all buildings in the area are at least 100 years old. 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, produce, and cheeses, similar to the more famous Boqueria market, but less crowded and does not have some of the more exotic things.

The Eixample is recommended as a convenient location to see the different sight 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. One stop away is the upscale shopping street, Passeig de Gracia, though you can easily walk there from the apartment. Three stops away is Plaza Catalunya (the very center of the city and also walkable) and the start of Las Ramblas, and the beaches are just five stops away. Four stops away you have the Old Cathedral and the Picasso Museum. 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 small family company. Lauren is from Dallas, TX and Fernando is from Barcelona, Spain. We currently run 16 holiday apartments in Barcelona, 6 in Istanbul, Turkey, and 2 furnished homes in Dallas. We apply our same high standards in every country.

Great location

  • 2 of 5

We all felt this place was in need of a good cleaning and TLC. Ants everywhere in the kitchen. Light bulbs were scarce in the fixtures.Get some new towels. Never meet hosts at all for the 3 days we spent there. Wifi absolutely useless, never got it to work. Had to stand outside of Creperie next door to use devices.

Super location. Barcelona is amazing.

Comfortable and well located

  • 4 of 5

Nice clean apartment near shops, restaurants, markets and subway. We ended up sleeping in the second bedroom. The main bedroom is on the street and can be noisy. The bathroom and kitchen are small but sufficient. Location is about a 15 to 20 minute walk to the Rambla. Large shared terrace on roof. Wifi was a bit spotty but mostly fine.

Character rich building, neighborhood. Total lack of attention from landlord.

  • 3 of 5

Greeter WAS NOT AVAILABLE TO MEET US AS WE WERE TOLD. When finally contacted, he told us it was his day off and he would come the next day. HE DID NOT.

Great neighborhood, though quite noisy for sleeping in front bedroom. Best to close shutters against noise. Everything steps away! Apt well appointed, charming touches. Woodwork, etc outstanding.

Empty trash bin in kitchen reeked of cigarette butts, kitchen drain smelled awful on entry. Could rarely get hot water in shower and would suddenly turn ice cold! Definite plumbing issues. Wi-fi was supposedly a strong signal, but downloading anything took quite a while.

Overall, plusses and minuses equaled about a "wash", I'd say.

Fabulous location, beautiful & comfy apartment in Barcelona!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four just spent three wonderful days in beautiful Barcelona. The BCN apartment was beautiful and very comfortable. Considering the heat of Barcelona in August, we were especially grateful for the air conditioners! The apartment was in a great location, quiet yet close to wonderful restaurants and the Sagrada Familia and other sights. Lauren and Fernando were responsive to all our requests for information and made our stay even better. We highly recommend this apartment and location!
