Apartment located in Gracia´s neighbourhood. Located in a quiet street very well connected near Sagrada Familia and 15 minutes from Paseo de Gracia. Enjoy your stay in a cozy apartment where you will find whatever your need in a very good situation.
I rent my apartment located in the cool Gracia´s neighbourhood.
HOW IS THE FLAT?
The flat has 2 different rooms: one double bedded and a very small room with bunkbed. In the living room there is a sofa bed for 1 person. There is also a balcony with flowers from where you can see the quiet street :)
There is a lot of space where to storage your things. I leave also in the rooms, candels and lamps to make you feel more comfortable and find a cozy place and good atmosphere.
I will provide clean towels, sheets and a fan
WERE WE ARE?
The flat is located 15 minutes walking from PASEO DE GRACIA, and just 10 minutes walking from SAGRADA FAMILIA (GAUDI´S MOST IMPORTANT TEMPLE).
Really well connected with the old city (just 4 metro stops until JaumeI with the yellow line)
The flat is located in the known GRACIA neighbourhood, is full of squares, narrow streets, and full of incredible restaurants and bars, but FULL OF LOCALS (not like the old part of the city). That´s your area, if you really want to stay in one of the most cool areas without crowded touristy restaurant´s and places.
This is a good place for all kind of traveller´s: couples on a romantic break, people looking for an authentic stay or for families wanting to stay in a safe area.
HOW TO ARRIVE?
The flat is very easy to reach! The nearest metro stop is Verdaguer (here you have line 4 and 5, yellow and blue line).
Near the flat there are also few bus stop that connect you everywhere!!
If you are coming from the airport, you can take the train from the airport until Sants Station (main station). From there take the blue line (L5) until Verdaguer (nerest metro stop).

Though we never met her, Sonia was most helpful and always available. We were happy with the location, though a bit out of the center of most of the tourist attractions we enjoyed that we were able to walk around and it was quiet at night and during siesta. The apartment is on the cutest little street and lots of space (we were two) there was a small problem with the smell of the place and it got worse as the days went on.
Overall we were very happy and truly appreciate Sonia and her warm hospitality. She informed us of festivals and events going on around the city - definitely went above and beyond.
p.s. we were so in love with the sagrada familia and its literally a few minute walk away - we went by each day just to catch a glimpse.
So some of the fittings may be a little dated, the point is that this apartment is very spacious (for 2), has a great location close to transport into the city and is amongst supermarkets and great little eateries. The neighborhood is very safe at all hours and is also a short walk from La Sagrada Familia, a must see when in Barcelona.
Another highlight was the day-bed. It almost convinced me not to leave the apartment each day! Sonia, too, was fantastic and very responsive to any queries that we had.
A fantastic eatery a walkable distance from the apartment is El Rincon Del Vino (opposite Hotel Hesperia Carlit) - english menu, lots of locals and cheap prices. Like a local pub and we thought the food was better than the much lauded Jai-Ca in Barceloneta.
Some things to note, though included the fact that the walls were quite thin and you could hear noise from the neighbors and the street. Also, the washing machine can be a bit tricky to work out at first - it might be worthwhile to get a lesson from Sonia to save time :) No aircon might make things uncomfortable in the height of summer, but the apartment has cross ventilation which does help. Overall, quite a nice stay in Barcelona
Appartement très bien situé, quartier calme à l'écart des flux massifs de touristes, mais à moins de 10 minutes à pied du métro Joannic et de la Sagrada (website hidden)ès fonctionnel pour nous 5 (2 adultes et 3 enfants).
Nous étions en voiture et le parking est gratuit du 1er au 31 août dans une bonne partie de Barcelone dont les rues à proximité de l'appartement de Sonia... un vrai plus ! (+ d'infos : (website hidden))
C'est un ami de Sonia, Pablo qui nous a agréablement accueilli (nous n'avons eu le plaisir de rencontrer Sonia).
Les petits moins : impossible de faire fonctionner la machine à laver et la literie de la chambre principale n'est pas très confortable.
We stayed at Sonia's lovely apartment for two nights after a long journey. Even though we arrived early in the morning she was kind enough to let us check-in much earlier than the typical time & was very helpful. THe location is superb too on a quiet street but a close walking distance to many sights & the neighbourhood around the apartment is really nice as well. THe kids loved the "telephone booth" fridge!:)
The host canceled my reservation 34 days before arrival.
