Overview

About the property

Apartment with 2 bedrooms & 2 bathrooms, ideal for families. Interior and bright

The important things happen in the heart. And it is precisely in the heart of Barcelona where this spectacular 85m2 apartment with a capacity for up to 6 people, which is fully renovated, tastefully decorated and designed for the whole family, is situated. The apartment has 2 double bedrooms, two fully equipped bathrooms and a lounge with a comfortable sofa bed for two people. The quietness, the central location and the brightness of the apartment is what our guests value most.

It’s just a few metres from Plaça Catalunya, so if you head down the road you come to the start of the city’s hallmark Ramblas. And if you go in the opposite direction, you will find the spectacular Passeig de Gràcia featuring Catalan modernist gems such as La Pedrera and the city’s chicest shops. Plus you can get to almost everywhere else by a pleasant stroll.

You’ll be hard pressed to find an apartment with a better location and better connections: metro, buses and taxis practically on your doorstep.

Things like this can only be felt in the heart, in the heart of Barcelona.

This apartment is only for families or people over 30 years.

Why Sara Vila chose Dreta de l'Eixample

Magnificent apartment with 85m2 of floor space, with two bedrooms and two bathrooms, located in the city centre, just off Las Ramblas and the Plaça Catalunya. It is spacious, comfortable and modern, and furnished in impeccable taste. The building is very secure and has a door opening system and lift, as well as all the comforts you need to feel at home in Barcelona!

What makes this apartment unique

For us, the best of this apartment is the peace and quiet that comes of staying in the interior courtyard of a typical Eixample building, it is not facing the street and is very bright.

Guestbook comments from the owner

In the heart of Barcelona and very convenience.

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is a crossed the street from the Coliseums. It is exactly like the picture shown on the website, fully equipped with all amenities including iron and cloth pin. There is plenty of closet space, 4 people can live here very comfortably. It is very convenience and walking distance to all major sight seeing locations. There are plenty of restaurants around the area if decided to eat out. The kitchen has enough utensil, plates and cups if you want to eat at home. I would definitely stay here again if visiting Barcelona again. The customer service is very attentive and quick to resolve issues if you need help.

Clean and convenient!

  • 5 of 5

We had a four year old and grandparents visiting Spain together. The apartment was clean and looked the same as the photos. The BCN staff was helpful to address our needs such as calling the airport for us on the delayed luggage. The location was perfect! We walked to Casa Batlló, La Rambla, La Sagrada Familia, and many amazing restaurants. The location is definitely for people who want to explore Barcelona!

I am not a fan

  • 2 of 5

The location of this apartment is perfect - around the corner from The Ramblas - in between a lot of top attractions - and a 30 minute walk to the Mediterranean. But downtown Barcelona has its drawbacks - from our experience the worst of which is a sewage system that doesn't always function well.

From what I finally learned after two days of a sewage smell in the master bedroom (the second night it was awful) someone had not closed the valve in the shower correctly and the sewage gas was coming up instead of venting down. But you could also periodically smell sewage coming from the airshaft and outside in the hallway. I don't know why it took two days to figure that out but it was way long enough to sour me on this apartment.

The service people who help you are nice and well meaning but not really organized so they are not the best source for local places to go. We asked for a dinner recommendation one night and were sent to a restaurant that was supposed to treat us well because the employee knew the owner and they had forgotten to include its name. When we checked every restaurant in the building no one had a record of a reservation for us.

They do refresh the apartment halfway through a week's stay which was nice. Once the sewage smell was gone the apartment was quite pleasant.

The layout is kind of strange - we needed the sofa bed and so the living room was pretty much unavailable while people were sleeping and with their stuff everywhere. The front of the apartment has a small table with chairs but we did not eat in much as It wasn't very conducive to sharing anything but a takeout meal.

In America or in a hotel they would have comped us for a few nights or offered some sort of giveback or extra for the sewage. My request to be moved to another apartment was ignored. Even though it was clear the fault was theirs they tried to laugh it off as "downtown Barcelona."

You can do better.

Owner's Response: Dear Aimee, We are sorry to see that the apartment did not live up to your expectations. We tried to do all what was in our hand to make you comfortable and tried to fix the sewage issue as soon as we could. Indeed we offered you extra items and a bottle of wine for the inconveniences. We are very sorry that we did not tell you the name of the restaurant we have booked for you, it was an unusual mistake from us that will not take place again. Likewise, you can always call us to confirm or ask for help in case you have a concern or inquiry. We appreciate your feedback that will help us to improve the apartment and our service for future travelers. Regards, Juncal Guest Relations

LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION!

  • 5 of 5

2 couples stayed here for 3 nights. Place is pretty spacious, however one bedroom is definitely A LOT smaller than the other, bathrooms are small but overall the the place is clean and efficient. The location cannot be beat, we've stayed in Barna multiple times over the last year and this is by far the best location of all the rentals we have stayed at... doesn't get better than this.

Great experience in Barcelona

  • 4 of 5

The apartment was in a great location and overall, the stay there was a very good experience for us. No complaints about cleanliness or anything. We would use EnjoyBCN again, and would also recommend it to friends.

We recommend Citrus restaurant a few blocks away; we went there twice and had great meals both times.

I will mention only a few minor problems, but only for informational purposes.

- the wifi was not accessible from the master bedroom, probably because the router was at the other end of the apartment. This was quite inconvenient if we wanted to use wifi in the bedroom. Instead, we had to go to the living room to use wifi.

- the sink drain in the master bathroom was stuck, so water did not drain easily from the sink. We could not figure out how to raise the drain plug.

- we had a lot of trouble unlocking the door to the apartment, every day. Even though two very nice employees of EnjoyBCN came to the apartment and showed us how, my wife and her sister still had problems. This may be more our fault, not understanding how the unlocking works on such doors. But it was a constant problem. I don't know what you could to change things; it was probably more our inability to understand the workings of the lock than anything else.

- taking out the trash the last day - the directions to trash containers on the street did not work - we couldn't find the containers from the map in the apartment, for trash, recycling, etc. We finally just put everything in a container we found down the street.

The apartment is in a truly unsurpassable location: 450 meters from Plaça Catalunya and Las Ramblas and 500 meters from the prestigious Passeig de Gràcia, where the best shops and the finest buildings in the city are to be found. Highlights among them include the famous Casa Milà, popularly known as La Pedrera, designed by Antoni Gaudí, the architect behind the marvellous Sagrada Família.

Just opposite the apartment building is a metro station on various lines, as well as bus stops and taxis. You are just a few minutes away from our city’s fantastic beaches!
