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 2011

Why Jose Antonio Rodriguez chose Barcelona

I bought this apartment in 2011, and i have another apartment that 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 by two additonal appartments in the same building and for the same reasons. And now in 2011 i have bought this one as i dont have enough space for the inquiries, and i like very much the location and the apartment. Right now i own and manage 5 properties in this building.

Great apartment in Barcelona!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I and a friend stayed here recently. It was perfect for us. Plenty big for the 3 of us (would be tight for more -- unless it was a family with smaller kids). The apartment is clean and safe with large windows overlooking the school yard playground, so happy sounds of kids playing during the day on weekdays. The location was excellent. An easy walk to metro stations, yet we felt like we were experiencing more of the "real" Barcelona instead of staying near the tourist sites, shops and streets in the center of town. Those were all easy to get to though. And this is quick walk to the Familia Sagrada.

Jose was WONDERFUL -- easy to communicate with, and he lined up very early morning taxis for us for trips back to the airport.

I'd recommend this place to my friends for sure!

Jose is just a perfect host! His 2 bedroom apartment is prefectly located in the heart of Barcelona. Everything is just steps away.

Apartment has everything you need to be comfortable during your stay.

Just exceptional!

A second home in Barcelona

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in this apartment three years in a row. Although we have stayed many other places in Barcelona previously, there are many reasons we keep coming back to this place:

1. The location is unbeatable. Within reasonable walking distance from many major attractions, two metro stations and several bus-stops within three blocks. If you - like us - prefer walking, this is a perfect home base. Passeig de Gràcia is a 15 minute walk away. So is El Born and Barri Gòtic. Parc de la Ciutadella another 15 minutes. La Sagrada Familia 10 minutes. 30-40 minutes to the beaches or the Aquarium. Also, there's restaurants, dry cleaning, fruit vendors, a butcher's, several supermarkets etc. on the same block or the next one, and even an indoor market with cheese, fish, meats etc. two blocks away that's open a few days a week. I could go on, but you get the picture.

2. The apartment itself is just what we need - although certain fixtures and some of the interior is showing its age, the floor plan is well thought out and perfect as a base for exploring for a family of four. Not huge, but functional. And it's got a good dishwasher, a fantastic washing machine, wifi that works properly and a reasonably large TV with lots of digital channels plus HDMI contacts that we could plug our own media units into. Plus a sound system and DVD player that we haven't really tried. There's no balcony, but we prefer relaxing inside in the pleasant A/C after a long day of exploring in hot and humid weather anyway.

3. And this may be the most important bit: Jose. This is about more than just "great customer service": Jose is a professional, yet genuinely caring, wonderful host. Always punctual, he always delivers, keeps his promises, and goes to great lengths to help us when problems arise, as they inevitably do when travelling with small children.

Such as on our last day, when there was a taxi strike, and we had no way of getting to the aiport with our six pieces of luggage not counting the strollers our kids were in. Public transport was out of the picture. Jose - after exhausting all other possibilities, drove my wife, two kids plus most of the luggage in his own car. The car was full, so I took the metro, while Jose waited at the airport with the rest of the family. And most amazing: This was Jose's own suggestion. We didn't ask him to do it, and yet he went that far just to help us out.

This is why we've been coming back again and again, and why we're always hoping to return.

Owner's Response: Hello Lars, Camilla, Constance and Walter (all the family). It was great again to have you for the third time almost a month at the apartment. For me its nice also to see how your kids are growing (when they are small in three years they change completely). THANKS AGAIN FOR YOUR STAY and the confidence to choose my apartment for your summer holidays. You have done a very detailed description of the apartment that will help also to other guest to know what they are going to find at the during their stay. It was a pity that i couldnt know a little before that there was taxi strike, they i could manage another solution for your way to the aerport. Then at this point it was the only way it comes to my mind to help you to go to the aerport. I think that staying 3 times at the apartment i tried to help to my guest as best as i know. Hope you have a good end of summer and also automn and winter. Jose.

The apartment was exactly as it appeared on the website!

  • 5 of 5

This apartment, although located in a somewhat residential area, was conveniently located close to public transit and good restaurants! Easily walkable to the Sagrada Familia, Arch de Triumph and Gran Via. Our host, Jose, was great and quickly familiarized us with the Barcelona area, which was a huge help! We had a wonderful stay!

Excelente opción para hospedarse en Barcelona

  • 5 of 5

Es la segunda vez que nos alojamos en este apartamento en nuestra visita a Barcelona. Lo elegimos porque satisface nuestras expectativas de conocer la ciudad caminando( está cerca de lugares muy atractivos,( Paseo de Gracia y Sagrada Familia, Arco del Triunfo, Palacio de la música)y, si el lugar que queremos visitar está alejado, sólo a tres cuadras está el metro. Es muy cómodo, tiene supermercados muy cerca, lugares para comer o tomar cafe con bocadillos dulces o salados.... Está perfectamente equipado y la atención de Antonio es excelente: profesional y cordial a la vez. está pendiente del huésped en todo momento.

Será que no habrá dos sin tres? Si volvemos a Barcelona elegiremos estos apartamentos.YA LO RECOMENDAMOS. Matrimonio de Argentina

A lovely stay in Barcelona

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is in a great part of town out of the strictly tourist areas. It is small but clean, comfortable, and fully equipped. Located about 4 blocks from a Metro stop, it is close to little cafes and grocery stores. It is right next to an elementary school and we enjoyed watching the children coming and going, playing soccer and roller skating. Jose was a great help getting us started. He gave us a street map and a Metro map and pointed out where things were. When it was time to leave he hailed a cab to get us back to the railroad station.

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..........
