About This Listing
Apartment completely renovated (2012), located on Passeig de Gràcia (Eixample Esquerra), listed building built in the late nineteenth century.
Located in the historic and commercial center of Barcelona. A 100 mts. Batllo House and 200 meters. La Pedrera (Casa Mila). Very well connected with the city of Barcelona and exterior, near the Metro Passeig de Gracia (L2, L3 and L4), and stop Diagonal (L3 and L5), and about 600 mts. to Plaça Catalunya and Las Ramblas.
The apartment has a classic style characterized by wide spaces delineated by columns and features glass doors and large windows that provide natural light.
The dining room and living room are separated by a great atmosphere cutting two Greek columns. It has 6 bedrooms for a total of 12 people, with 3 bathrooms (spa, bath and shower).
The large designer kitchen, fully equipped with a central island, gives modern twist to the classic construction.
Paseo de Gracia is a wide boulevard in the Eixampe district of Barcelona. It runs from Plaça Catalunya to Avinguda Diagonal just before the suburb of Gràcia starts. The boulevard boasts over 150 protected buildings, including some of the city's greatest modernist architecture masterpieces. In fact there is one area known as ‘Quarat de Or’ (Golden Square Mile) which is full of magnificent buildings decorated with neo-Gothic details and stained-glass work revealing the best of modernisme. It is a real open-air museum of modernism, which would amaze you for sure.
This famous Street is one of themajor places for shopping in Barcelona. It is full of the most exclusive brands.
SEE YOU SOON IN BARCELONA!!
Respetar la tranquilitad de los vecinos, de las 22 h hasta las 9 h no hacer ruídos excesivos.
No se permiten hacer fiestas, ni alojar a más gente de la que se nos comunica.
Por las noches y el fin de semana hay que cerrar con llave la puerta de la portería.
Amazing, just amazing. Place is perfect for large groups. Really central, huge, clean, stylish. The only thing missing is a rooftop terrace (would be a 12 on a 0 to 10 scale). Miguel is a star. Very friendly, more than helpful and a great guy. You can't do anything wrong with this place.
Unbeatable location on Passeig Gracia in the heart of this wonderful city. Apartment is situated 25 mins from the airport in a taxi which cost us 35 euros (5 euros for luggage and airport taxes). Apartment is situated a pleasant two minute walk from Casa Mila and Casa Batllo and a 10 min walk to Plaza Catalunya/La Ramblas.
Taxi journey to Sagrada Familia cost 6 euros (20 min walk), Park Guell (8 euros), Barceloneta Beach (8 euros) and Plaza Espanya (8 euros). Fantastic central location!
Apartment access is via an elevator and the apartment is situated on the 4th floor.
The bedrooms and kitchen area are as nice as seen in the photos. The bedroom at the front has a balcony which overlooks Passeig Gracia and no road noise can be heard once the balcony doors are closed. Each bedroom has a air conditioning unit which worked fine. Each room is also fitted with a wall mounted TV but didn't need to use it
Miguel is a fantastic host. Very quick with his email replies. Extremely nice person and accommodating - he provided us with a early check in and late check out without any extra charges. He moved our luggage to a nearby apartment on day of our checkout due to a existing reservation and came back to the apartment to check us out.
Would have no hesitation returning back to this apartment for a future stay
The apartment was very good. We had nine guests, stayed for eight days and we found the accommodations very comfortable and acceptable. I would stay there again.
It is in an excellent location. Sixth floor, nice old elevator access, accessible balcony overlooking Passeig de Gracia. The doorman who worked day hours in the foyer of the building was very helpful and congenial.
Perfect location for aficionados of Antoni Gaudi because it is located two blocks from La Pedrera, in one direction, and two blocks from Casa Batllo in the other. A direct view of La Pedrera from the balcony.
No noise at night in the front of the apartment, but occasionally, some ground level noise rising up to the back of the apartment in the wee hours of the morning. Never had to test climate control in the apartment because outdoor temps were perfect.
About 8 blocks to La Rambla. A very nice, pleasant and safe walk to get there and to the Gothic town. Very close to excellent shopping, fine food and a little shop for snack food, beer wine, bread and other essentials.
Miguel was excellent. He timely communicated with us before the trip to help us get our bearings before we arrived. He helped us figure out the best way to get to the apartment from the airport. He checked us in early on Sunday morning when we arrived and pointed out the landscape in the neighborhood - convenience shops etc. all of which made us very comfortable in our neighborhood.
The apartment could use some additional conveniences like hand towels, towels, kitchen towels and the like. Only had bathroom towels, but not enough. Also, would be helpful to have instructions on how to operate coffee machine and washer and dryer.
The wifi was disappointing. It was mostly operational in the kitchen, but as you move farther away from it in the apartment (bedrooms, living room, etc., it was very unreliable, and in half of the apartment, unavailable.
All in all, a great stay.
Thing was ok, we where met in a nice way, and got response when we asked.
Wonderful apartment in a great neighbourhood. Lots of space and all the amneties you need. Miguel was very helpful and we will definately return again.
