The Eixample neighbourhood is a residential area built in the late 19th century, filled with modernist and elegant buildings. Nowadays, it is a welcoming area where people gather around to enjoy drinks in one of the many outdoor cafes, and where you can find all kinds of restaurants, services and stores. We will be able to provide recommendations for restaurants, bars or activities such as theatres, cinemas or parks. It is a central area from which you can discover the city on foot if you wish!
This will be your home not a hotel, make yourselves comfortable and relax :-)
Just a couple of obvious things:
- Please no pets & no smoking in the house! (€250 fine)
- Please respect the neighbours and keep noise down to a minimum.
- Please no drugs on the premises
- Please insure that the front door is closed behind you.
- Be very careful of pickpockets on the streets of Barcelona!
This was out first airbnb experience and Damien and his team made it very easy for us with good communication and offers of help before we arrived. Maria met us at the apartment and showed us how things worked. When we had an issue with the blind in the bedroom she dealt with it speedily and it was fixed the next day.
The apartment is as it looks in the pictures and it was clean. We didn't use the balcony as we were there over Christmas while visiting family. Although the weather was cold the flat was warm and comfortable. The main bedroom is spacious and the bed was comfortable although there is some noise from water flow from the apartment above. The kitchen was smaller than we expected but as we only ever had breakfast in the apartment that wasn't an issue.
The area itself was in a great location: central Barcelona, Gracia, the Sagrada Familia, and even Parc Guell are all within easy walking distance. The Metro is a short walk. There are several good supermarkets, a bakery, bars and tapas bars around the block. We often walked back late at night and the neighbourhood was quiet and felt safe.
Damien and his Team are great, so quick in responding to any email / contact made and really attentive. Maria met us late on a friday evening and was super kind and forth coming with info about Barcelona.
The apartment is lovely - very clean and bigger then it looks in the pictures. I would highly recommend the flat for your stay - a bit of a stroll in to central Barcelona - but well worth it to have the peace and quiet - nice cafe's and a great bakery just round the corner.
Wish we could have stayed there longer :).
I was met by Karolina (my memory, her name), and she was very upbeat, personable- however, I could have used the info of where to put the garbage as in outside on the street, a grey container. I requested more garbage bags, dish soap, and they arrived the next day. Every email was answered by Damien almost immediately, very RESPONSIVE. The sliding door was broken, not able to lock, and it was repaired in about 3 days. That said, chilled champagne in fridge was wonderful- the apartment is very clean, lit with light, white furnishings, cheerful. They might add two sunflowers (under 3 eruos at wonderful market around the corner), for example, to the dining table, and refresh the 'potpourri' in a dish, coffee table, once a month (kinda sad), water plants as it implies care- I watered them while there. The kitchen had everything to prepare a meal, which my niece and I did happily- and the 2 bedrooms perfect for us. The apartment is VERY COMFORTABLE and I would return as well as recommend to friends, family, students. You can walk to Carrera Gracia, a series of great shops and cafes on every street, benches to sit on under old, beautiful trees everywhere we walked...the placas/plazas with fountains, little restaurants/cafes there...the fresh vege/fruit stands are stunning, and the MARKETS marvelous. As they are in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico, where I live most of the year...I felt right at home, Spanish, Catalan in my ears. And go to Las Ramblas at night for the most wonderful tapas, wish I remembered the name/street, off of a placa, Basilica Santa Maria where we heard masterful guitar...there, you might find it. To Barcelonetta for grilled LOBSTER, Spain's Esmeralda vino... the restaurant at the top of the museum Montjuic, the rainbow fountain at night...and the restaurants at the top of the shopping mall across from it after rainbow fountain, truly a marvelous show. If you stay here you'll be very comfortable, at home, and able to wander to all the beauty Barcelona has to offer (Gaudi is present everywhere). The one challenge you might have is the 'big shower' as in the water switches from hot/warm to cold suddenly...the trick is to not mess with temperature too much once you find it, and only add hot slowly. The 'small shower' runs all over the floor- we just used the big one. All the at home quirks...go to the marvelous market around the street when you arrive, it's all there, enjoy.
We had a wonderful stay in Barcelona. This property is in a great location. Carolina met us at the apt. and was very helpful during our entire stay.
We will always fondly remember 116 Bruc, Barcelona, as our home away from home during the 10 days we spent there in September, 2014. We were greeted by Karolina and she showed us around the apartment and gave us information about the area. We loved the apartment and we loved the great L'Eixample neighborhood the apartment was located in. While the hustle and bustle of the Plaza Catalunia and the Las Ramblas was close by, it was great to just walk a few blocks away and have it be our quiet 'hood'. It was easy to find great local restaurants for eat and drink and plenty of grocery stores to stock up on food for the apartment. The architecture in the neighborhood was mind blowing. We very much enjoyed our stay at the apartment and are glad we didn't stay in a hotel close to the tourist areas. We would definitely stay there again. Good job, guys! Richie and Randi
We had a wonderful time in Barcelona and felt completely at home in the apartment from as soon as we arrived. Carolina, who met us on arrival, was bright, friendly and very helpful. The apartment itself is very comfortable and its position is excellent with a big market just round the corner as well as a fresh bakery and a spar right across the road for any bits and bobs. It is also five mins walk from the metro, which was very handy. This was my first Airbnb experience and it was excellent. I would highly recommend this apartment and city!
Karolina was so welcoming and allowed us to store bags at the apartment and take the keys before checkin. We had an all day event to attend so her accommodating out schedule was super nice. She also maintained great communication prior to the booking and though out the stay. Very professional and just what you need to make you feel at ease when booking an apartment international. Great size and amazing location that is super quiet but close to everything. Great TV channel selection and large balcony that was nice for sitting. Super clean apartment!! Shower temperature would turn hot to cold in seconds which was a bit of an issue, stovetop range doesn't generate much heat, and there was an air conditioning unit I stalked but did not help for the 2nd bedroom.

Having traveled and lived all over the world I appreciate the simple pleasures and the benefits of staying in a home rather than a hotel. I started off with sharing my spare rooms through Airbnb and now with the help of my little team we have a dozen private luxury apartments, however we strive to maintain the family feel and love to share the best of Barcelona with you.
My assistants Karolina and Maria, the cleaning team and I are here to help.
Feel free to grab a drink from the fridge and I encourage you to buy some amazing ingredients at the market and utilize the kitchen.
