Why Raul Duran chose L'Esquerra de l'Eixample
The location of the apartment is fantastic to visit and enjoy Barcelona, and after that, you can have a comforting rest with your children or your partner because it´s incredibly quiet.
What makes this Apartment unique
It is a quiet sunny place in the city center. It´s very well communicated and you can walk to the main sights in town. There are a lot of a good restaurants, markets and supermarkets if you prefer to cook at home. Barcelona Fair is close to the apartment. It takes only 15 minutes to the airport by taxi or airport bus, and 5 minutes to Sants station where you can take the High-Speed Train (AVE) and go to Madrid in two and a half hours. Other important thing is that we live in the same building, so we can help you on anything that you need quickly, so very personalized attention.

Excellent Host, Property and Location!
I would highly recommend this property!! It was very clean, very comfortable and had all the supplies you’d need, along with extra treats from the hosts. Our host, Raül, was fantastic! He drove us to and from the airport and gave us a tour and overview of the city, along with other information we’d need for our stay. His restaurant recommendations were great. The location of the property was perfect too! Easy access to many sites and quiet. Definitely 5+++ stars!
Great host and location
Flying all the way from the West Coast of the US to Barcelona with a 4 year old, having Raul, the owner offer to pick us up was tremendous. Not only did he pick us up, but gave up a quick tour of the area, provided maps, tips, help printing tickets for events, etc. He was for sure one of the nicest person we have met. And the appartment was great. Walking distance to the Montjuic fountain, train station, restaurants (try Persa, amazing Persian restaurant near by), groceries, metro, etc. He also had some wine, beer, juice, coffee, fruit basket, waiting for us making the start of our European trip a great one. Thanks for everything Raul!
My husband and I stayed in this beautiful apartment for one week in May. The owners , Carmen and Raul ,could not have been more hospitable. Raul gave us a brief tour of nearby attractions when we arrived and we were greeted with a fruit basket and a bottle of wine in the apartment. The roof terrace is a wonderful bonus for tapas and wine in the evening. The owners have sought of everything one might need in the apartment and are always available for assistance if necessary. The location of the apartment is ideal, close to the tourist attractions, to public transportation, to the supermercado and a bakery across the street. Since it is in the back of the building it is very quiet. We liked our stay so much that we are sure we will return. This apartment and Carmen and Raul win our vote for best VRBO experience in many years.
Amazing hosts Raul and Carmen
From the moment we set foot in Barcelona everything was amazing. Raul and Carmen thank you both for making our time in Barcelona so special. Wish all hosts were as thoughtful and kind as you both! We would love to stay again in your apartment when we next visit Barcelona.
Wonderful neighbourhood location
Raul and Carmen are the very best hosts, Raul took us on a mini tour of the city and drove us to the airport when we left and we felt the we could have asked them any questions about the city. Raul speaks very good english. the apartment was spotless and is charming and the welcome gift of fruit, wine and fridge essentials was very welcoming. Beds are comfortable and the apartment is very quiet at night. I would definitely recommend these gracious hosts and would also stay again . . . . .patricia
Great apartment and host
Raul and this Barcelona apartment are all you could ask for. He was a terrific host - he picked us up at the airport in his car, then gave us a brief tour and orientation to Barcelona on the way to the apartment. The apartment building is on a busy street, but the apartment is on the top floor and faces the back, overlooking an open square with other buildings. This means no traffic noise at all. There was a full kitchen, small but complete and stocked with basic staples plus milk, juice, butter, etc. in the frig. Raul and Carmen also left us a huge fruit basket that lasted our entire stay. The apartment was very clean, light and plenty roomy for the two of us. There is a semi-private terrace with the washer and room for a drying rack. Raul provided information and directions for sights in Barcelona and nearby restaurants. "The Crown Marine" less than a block away was excellent and an Indian restaurant "Thali" was just as near in the opposite direction and also very good. A final touch was Raul's insistence on giving us a lift to the train station for our departure. A wonderful experience in all.
Skating,jogging,library. The apartment is near the Barcelona's Fair. Breathtaking views of the harbor from the cable car.
