Information about the Neighborhood and Barcelona
The apartment is located in a super central Barcelona: 10 minutes from Ramblas 10 minutes from Plaza Catalunya 10 minutes walk to the sea arrownd the apartment area is full of cafes and bars to eat for a very good price ... We are conveniently located in the city. Near all major subway lines, most tourist attractions and the center point of different dining options, shopping malls, etc.. From where you are, you can walk around and dive into the city, from the most traditional of Barcelona - the capital of Catalunya, to the immigrant Barcelona, the tourist Barcelona, and the modern and avant-garde Barcelona conceived by Joan Miró and Ferran Adria. Nearby, we have the barrio of Sants, a traditional neighborhood with many local people, shops and typical Catalonian and Spanish restaurants. Another traditional neighborhood is Nova Ezquerra d'Eixample, up from Tarragona Street. Plaça Espanya has developed a lot in recent years, with the recovery of the Parc Joan Miró, with Fira Barcelona - Montjuic hosting some of the most importante business fairs, and the newest shopping mall: Las Arenas de Barcelona. An old bullfight arena where has been transformed into a modern shopping and entertainment center, but had its original external architecture fully preserved. An amazing job. Tourism There are many City Guides available, with countless things to do - it can be a bit overwhelming. That’s why we offer you some of our suggestions of what we think are the most important and interesting places to visit. Tourist attractions: How to get there: Some of the attractions are a walking distance from the flat. If not, you can take the Metro or the Bus Turistic. Metro: We’re very close to the Line 3 (green) and Line 1 (red). The green line takes you to most tourist attractions. If you’re thinking of using the Metro to go around, the best option is to buy a T10 ticket. With it you can use 10 trips in the Metro or Bus (or a combination of both). Bus Turistic: it’s a good and practical option to get to know the whole city in a short period of time. You can catch the bus from any point. There is stop in Plaça Spain, and also an Information Point. There are tickets for 1, 2 or 3 days, and you can hop on and off whenever you want. The bus offers audio guides in several languages. Earphones are provided. There are two routes. One of them goes to the mountain and the other to the beach. They cross each other in two stops, and you can change line whenever you want. Most visited places: •Casa Milá (La Pedrera): It's a must-see tourist attraction. It’s located on Passeig de Gracia and inside you’ll find a museum of the architect Antoni Gaudí. The house, like so many other famous buildings in Barcelona was built by the architect, and represents the perfectionism of his style. The roof of the building is a authentic garden of outdoor sculptures. Calle Provença 261-265 x Passeig Gràcia M: Diagonal- L3 y L5 •Sagrada Familia: El Templo Expiatorio de la Sagrada Familia is Gaudi's masterpiece and the greatest exponent of Catalan modernist architecture. The Basilica is the most visited monument in Spain. Its beauty and size will cause, at first sight, an impressive and exciting impact. Calle Mallorca 401 M: Sagrada Familia L2 y L5 •Park Güell: is a public park with gardens and architectural elements, located in upper Barcelona, from where you have a very nice view of the city. •Again, we have a symbol of Gaudí's artistic fulfillment, and an important part of the beauty of Barcelona. •Calle D’Olot 5 M: Lesseps – L3 •Las Ramblas / Barrio Gótico / el Born: Knowing and walking down Las Ramblas and its surroundings is a must. Las Ramblas is a pedestrian street with shops and street artists, and small alleys that have a multitude of stores, bars, restaurants, cathedrals, museums, etc.. It starts just by Plaça Catalunya which is the main city square. It’s always busy, day and night. Plaça Catalunya – Ramblas - Born M: Catalunya / Liceu – Drassanes - L3 / Jaume – L4 •Fuentes Mágicas de Montjuic: plase don’t miss this spectacle of water and lights. It’s just by our flat! Go to the base of the National Art Museum of Catalunya, in Plaza Spain and check the water fountain. At first it will be only illuminated by the colorful lights, but wait until the show begins. It’s really beautiful. Fun fact: this attraction was built in 1922!

Parc de Montjuic s/n M: Parallel – L3 •Teatro Museo Dalí – Figueres: In the ruins of the building of the former Municipal Theatre, built in the nineteenth century, and destroyed at the end of the Civil War, Salvador Dalí decided to create his very impressive museum, which contains the broadest range of works that illustrate his care(phone number hidden)). Note the Mae West Room, the Wind Palace Room, which was designed expressly for the Theatre-Museum. The Dali Museum is a must see as a whole, and everything in it was designed by the artist in order to give visitors a real experience of getting inside his captivating and unique world. The Museum is located in the town of Figueres, about 1 hour from Barcelona. The train leaves Sants Station (walking distance) (take Barcelona-Portbou RENFE line, to Figueres station).

Sitges Cercanías RENFE (Rodalíes) – Sants Estació: línea R2 – - salen trenes a todos los minutos: (phone number hidden)) (Estación: Sitges) EATING: Our recommendations are generally of restaurants serving seafood, which are the most traditional and appreciated meals in Spain. The jamón is also another "flagship food" of the country, and you can ask as a tapa, in most bars and restaurants. The “tapas”, which are little portions, are also very traditional. Some suggestions are: jamón serrano, manchego cheese, queso manchego, queso curado, croquetas, tortilla, and the very famous pan con tomate (typical of Catalunya, but you can already find in other parts of Spain). Possibly, the best known typical Spain dish is the Paella, and we’ll give you some good options. Spanish cuisine is very diverse, and in Barcelona you will find dishes from all parts of the country, specially the Mediterranean style. In many restaurants a good option is to ask for grilled seafood, or Cod. Cod with tomato is very good, and the llauna Cod is the most typical of Barcelona. Enjoy! Restaurants: Good Paellas and Seafood: ENVALIRA: It is a small restaurant in the neighborhood of Gràcia, where you’ll find a good paella, at a great price. Another option is the black rice dish. Plaça del Sol, 13 Tel: (phone number hidden) Metro: Fontana – L3 BOTAFUMEIRO: Also in Gràcia, but differently from the first, is one of the most well known fish and seafood restaurants in Barcelona. The price follows its popularity, but the quality of the food is fantastic. The portions are quite large, thereby better take a friend and make sure you’re hungry! To get an idea, the average price per person is about 60 €. Carrer Gran de Gràcia, 81 Tel: (phone number hidden) Metro: Fontana – L3 CAL PINXO On a sunny day, nothing better than sitting on the terrace to enjoy good food in front of the Mediterranean Sea. In Barceloneta Beach, the Cal Pinxo Restaurant, serves a lovely paella and several other dishes, such as steamed mussels that are delicious! Carrer Baluart,124 Tel: (phone number hidden) Metro: Barceloneta– L4 LA PARADETA MARISQUERÍA: Forget the decor, comfort, waiter service, and so on, because it’s a very simple place.

Pablo was very helpful and gracious when we first got there and though we had to wait a couple hours before being able to move in because the apartment was being cleaned, we found that the apartment was very clean. The pictures are a good representation of the apartment, which only appears slightly smaller than the images convey (understandably given the angle of the photographs). Be careful of noise though, as the neighbors are very sensitive to disturbances. Overall a wonderful experience.
We stayed here with a group of 9 people ( 7adults and 2 children) and had a nice time. The location was good and the apartment wasnt too noisey as it faces a quiet street. We had a few minor issues but we received a quick response from the hosts.
Jordina was very helpful prior to the trip and during our stay, as was her husband Pablo.
Whilst the flat is lovely we did have quite a few issues, the issues did not dampen our spirits as we were staying for a friends hen and wanted to make the most of our weekend, I however do not think that others would have been as easy going as we were.
Unfortunately the flat was not that clean when we arrived, I had to put all the cutlery and crockery that we were to use through the dishwasher the day that we got there. The drawers and cupboards were filthy.
The bathrooms were not that clean and whilst it says shampoo, soap etc is provided - it was measly remnants of past visitors.
Jordina knew how many of us would be staying and whilst I understand we are to provide some of our own amenities, it was written in the listing that certain things would be provided. Our main thing was toilet paper. For 8 girls staying in the flat over a course of 4 days we were provided with just one full toilet paper, and another half of one.
The air conditioning unit is only in the living room and is not all that effective, leaving the other rooms to get very hot at night
One of the beds, the non en-suite from the living room had the creakiest bed, so 2 of us barely slept during our time.
We were very quiet (not your usual hen party), and were out each night, we came back one day to a very threatening letter from one of the neighbours advising us that we were loud and that they would call the police on us. This was very upsetting as we had not even made that much noise, in fact we worked out that we were not in at the time they were complaining about. I imagine that previous visitors have been loud and neighbours were fed up.
I mentioned our issues to Jordina who kindly tried to resolve the issues, but unfortunately it was too late. She offered to reimburse for the toilet paper but we had to leave for the airport before they even arrived at the flat to meet with us. I told her that we had to leave and did not hear anything back at all. The effort to reimburse or even a gesture of goodwill had to be brought up by me.
Whilst the flat is lovely, I think it needs some updating and some TLC. I would hesitate to recommend this flat until it is given some attention. Jordina and Pablo and their daughter were very sweet and I am sure that they will pay attention to the flat.
La descripción del piso era correcta y el barrio muy agradable
Es un lugar estupendo para pasar unos días en Barcelona
Los propietarios muy muy amables
Muchísimas gracias por todo!
The apartment location is great. There are lots of restaurants very close, a very nice shopping mall located in the arena about 3 blocks away and the Magic Fountain was a short walk. We did have a little communication glitch, but all worked out. There were six people in our party, and everyone was very comfortable.
Cool! Perfec location, nice, clear, silent, like my flat at home.
Nous avons passé une semaine formidable à Barcelone (5 amies). Le mari de Jordina a été présent pour l'accueil dans la journée . Le logement était propre et prêt pour nous à notre arrivée. Le quartier juste à côté de la Plaça d'Espanya est facile d'accès depuis l'aéroport et très convenient pour prendre le metro (10-15 min vers le centre et la mer). Le quartier est tranquille. La description du logement et les photos correspondent à la réalité. Je reviendrai sûrement dans cet appartement!

Pablo, mi marido, se encarga de hacer los check-in y check-out.
Ambos nos entregamos plenamente a gestionar nuestro piso, queremos que la gente venga a Barcelona y se sienta como en casa. Siempre nos tendréis a vuestra disposición para cualquier duda o problema.
Necesitamos la vida cosmopolita, pero al mismo tiempo nos encanta disfrutar de la tranquilidad, y siempre cerca del mar, de su profundidad azul y su aroma salino.
La literatura, el silencio, la música, pasear, soñar, el arte... son algunos de nuestros gustos y aficiones.
Yo siempre he soñado con tener un pequeño hotel, algún espacio donde plasmar mi gusto por los pequeños detalles, y cuidar de la gente y sus necesidades. Cuando viajo me gusta recibir eso de mis anfitriones, y ahora sueño con ser yo la anfitriona.
Bienvenidos a nuestra/vuestra casa...
