About Owner/Property Manager

We are a NYC family. I used to come to Barcelona to shoot TV commercials and loved it, now I just visit for fun with the family. I plan to spend 6 months a year in Europe and use it as a base.

Owner/Property Manager purchased this apartment in 2012

Why Owner/Property Manager chose Barcelona

We wanted something that felt like it was part of Barcelona, not just a mod apartment you could find anywhere. There's some beautiful detail, and it's in one of the best areas. It's great for families because we get a nice big master and the kids have their own rooms.

What makes this apartment unique

It is very sunny. The stores and restaurants in the surrounding blocks are first-rate. You can walk to the historic districts but you are not surrounded by tourists, so it feels more like a neighborhood you live in.

An absolute gem in the heart of Barcelona

  • 5 of 5

My wife and three kids (ages 11, 13, and 15) spent five nights at this spectacular apartment in Barcelona at the end of June. It is located on a quiet, tree-lined street in an upscale residential neighborhood. It is walking distance to all the sights (10 - 20 min.), and a Metro station is nearby (5 - 10 min).

The apartment has beautiful original detail and mosaic tile, yet has modern (but small) kitchen and bathrooms (only one full bath, though). A really small building elevator is good for transporting luggage. David, Lisbeth, and Graciela made the process of booking, checking, and checking out incredibly easy and were gracious throughout. When we unexpectedly arrived late at night due to flight delays, Graciela met us at the apartment and gave us a warm and thorough introduction to the apartment and the city.

We enjoyed everything about our stay, would do it again, and highly recommend it!

Amazing experience

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed at Mr Silver's place for 5 nights this summer. Everything was incredibly clean, spacious and comfortable for 6 adults and a 1 year old. Graciela and team were incredibly responsive and accessible throughout our stay.

Location: The apartment is centrally located with plenty of stuff to do within walking distance. Plenty of cabs were available at the corner if we weren't up for walking. The street is quiet at night and feels safe. We enjoyed a lot of the nearby restaurants and bars which were recommended in their extensive welcome guide.

Extras: Knowing we had a small child with us, they helped us rent a crib and put some baby supplies in the apartment which helped make our stay comfortable. Everything was very enjoyable and we would definitely return!

Great apartment, centrally located, safe area.

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at this apartment while in Barcelona! There was plenty of room for our family of four (two children, 9 & 4 years old) and a travel nanny. The apartment has such great character, as it is in an older building. It was clean, cool, quiet, and had all the necessities needed for a great stay.

We shopped at the Mercat Ninot which is close by and made breakfast with the fresh ingredients every morning before heading out to explore. There is wonderful upscale clothing blocks away and restaurants and bars everywhere. We just loved exploring and finding new places to try! One of our favorites was a cozy wine bar named Cellarer. The two owners of the wine bar are very knowledgable about Spanish wines, friendly and welcoming. The small bites they serve are fantastic!

Graciela, who met us upon arrival, was warm and welcoming and answered all of our questions. She was very helpful, even reserving a taxi for the five of us to get to the train station on the morning we left.

The apartment has a wonderful folder filled with maps and suggestions for food, sights and anything you need to know about the apartment. It was appreciated and helpful.

We would definitely stay at this apartment again if we visit Barcelona!

Gorgeous apartment near excellent restaurants

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 stayed at this apartment for 4 days and loved it. The original details of the tiled floors and moldings in the ceilings were gorgeous. The living room is bright and sunny, and the bedrooms can turn into cool, dark caves -- perfect for staying on "Spanish time!" Our Spanish friends who came to the apartment considered it to be huge.

Graciela, the property manager, met us at the apartment, showed us around, and gave us all the necessary instructions. The laundry machine had just broken with the previous tenants, but they had a new one up and running for us within 36 hours of our arrival. The owners have a comprehensive folder with information about all the services nearby -- very helpful. And the apartment is particularly well-located for great restaurants within 2-3 blocks. It is a bit of a hike on foot from the apartment to the Gothic/Born/Raval districts and even from the Plaza Cataluna with young children. But taxis are easy to find. We would definitely return to this apartment and appreciated the professionalism of the owners and operators. Muchas Gracias!

Beautiful Apartment in Premier Neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I rented this apartment for the month of March and we couldn't have been happier with it. The owner, his assistant and the property manager Graciella were helpful, prompt and entirely professional; they responded to communications within hours and with detailed information on day trips, local services like dry cleaning and bike rental, and any other questions we had.

The apartment is located in what many consider the most beautiful neighborhood in Barcelona, surrounded by restaurants of every style and price range, including some of the best in the city. Rambla Catalunya, with dozens of sidewalk cafes, is four or five blocks away and we were able to walk to many of the Gaudi attractions from the apartment. There is also a large neighborhood market on the next block if you plan on having meals in; we became regular customers at the cheese, olive and empanada stalls.

The apartment itself is beautifully traditional with its classic tile floors, stained glass and french windows opening to the street and is nicely furnished with comfortable contemporary furniture. We appreciated that unlike many holiday rentals, this apartment was well stocked with basic amenities when we arrived. Two of the bedrooms are small (and one lacks a window) but both were nicely decorated and well lit. The master bedroom is quite large, with an attached dressing area. Storage there, which was particularly important for our long stay, was excellent and more than ample for the two of us to unpack a months' worth of clothing.

Even though there is some street noise in the living room, which is not surprising because Barcelona is a large, busy city, the bedrooms are located away from the street and are very quiet.

We simply loved this place and wouldn't hesitate to stay here again. In fact, I hope we can!
