Grande Valencia 1 - Barcelona Beautiful Old World Charm

  • 5 of 5

What a fantastic property just 3 blocks from the Sagrada de familia and maybe a 20 minute walk to the Gothic Quarter. We were a group of 6 and had so much room to sleep, eat, and enjoy each others company. The property owners were very helpful at check in, and were able to help us with all our questions. Taxis in Barcelona are very affordable with 4 of us splitting 10 euros or less for most trips.

Also, the people who run the Negre apartments live right there and know the best restaurants, including our new favorite A' Gianni a little Italian pizza place just a few doors away. We would highly recommend this property to our closest friends.

The Grand Apartment Calle Valencia, Barcelona

  • 5 of 5

The Grand Apartment in Barcelona is very spacious, clean, characteristic, quiet, and well-located. We are a family of 6, and had two extra bedrooms that we did not use. We stayed 8 nights. You can easily walk to La Sagrada Familia (10 minutes), and even to Las Ramblas (30 min), the beaches (40 min), and the gothic district (20 min). Regardless of where you go, there are beautiful buildings, great pedestrian walkways, and pleasant breezes. Taxi's are plentiful, and cost 4 to 7 euros to most anywhere. The city tour bus is well recommended. Marcela is a wonderful host, and is very helpful. You will definitely enjoy your stay in this wonderful apartment, and beautiful city.
