About the property

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

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 apartment still has the original ceilings with artistic moldings, mosaic floors (a different design in every room), and original woodwork on the doors and windows. 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 bed with an additional 175cm pull-out bed, a 21-inch TV, DVDs, etc. The apartment fits up to 6 although an occupancy of 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 (for 8 different bus lines) 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.

Extras - cellphone, computer rental, daily maid service, grocery and food services

Great stay & lovely apartment

  • 5 of 5

Really enjoyed our time here. The apartment is perfect for a city stay: in the heart of it all and close to many of the most popular attractions. Beds are comfy and the roof terrace is lovely. Prompt communications from lovely hosts too. Totally recommended for an authentic stay in Barcelona.

A nice place to stay

  • 4 of 5

The furnishings are simple but quite adequate. Although on the fourth floor, there is some traffic noise. The lighting isn't sufficient for reading at night. But overall, I would recommend it. Convenient to La Sagrada Familia and to the metro system.

Great location. Smaller than expected.

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our week's stay. We had some initial bumps (electronic locks, wifi), but they were solved quickly. The bathroom is very small by US standards, but not by European, or historical urban standards. It's larger than a cruise ship bathroom, but tight. We were glad we took the owner's suggestion to bring house shoes for comfort on the mosaic floors. The AC units worked well. The location is great, near a number of bus and subway lines. Armed with Google Maps, we could easily return on the bus from almost anywhere in the city, and usually without transfers.

Great apartment and a great location.

  • 4 of 5

Great apartment in a great neighborhood. Staff was very helpful with advice and great to deal with. We had no problems checking in and meeting up with Eduardo (Apartment rep). Apartment was as pictured and we loved the rooftop terrace. Bath and Kitchen are Euro and small but met all our needs. WE WILL stay here again!!! I highly recommend the Negre Apartment for your home base in Barcelona!!

Perfect Apartment

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was perfect for a family of 4. It was very clean and was in a perfect location. We walked or took the train everywhere. The train was very close, only two blocks. There were small grocery stores across the street and a couple of blocks away where we bought cheese, bread, meat and wine for a small dinner on the patio upstairs or for an appetizer before enjoying the fabulous food at the many restaurants close by. I've already recommended this apartment to two friends who also stayed here and loved it.

Perfect location to get around town and not be in the craziness of the tourist

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was exactly how it was represented in pictures. At first, we thought it was small but when actually staying and living in the flat is was quite comfortable. Clean, beds comfortable, GREAT views from upper terrace. Quite building. Close to everything yet away from the busy tourist crowds. Neighborhood made you feel like a local and not a tourist. Danone morning on the Ave. Diagonal. As I said was very wonderfully located. Owners representative, Marika could not have been more helpful. Dropped luggage and went for lunch while apartment was being cleaned. Would HIGHLY recommend any of the flats that this group have. We will stay here again upon our return to barcelona.
