About This Listing
The apartment is located in a 1897's building in an area called "Eixample" ("Left Eixample").
Is in a third floor (without elevator) simple, very clean, bright and near the center of Barcelona.
It has a large balcony with nice view!
The location of the place is perfect, just 5 minutes walking to the center of Barcelona in an area called "Eixample" (Left Eixample).
It is an apartment ideal for 2/3 people.
It has one double room (facing the street) and a single room (facing a patio), one bathroom, fully equiped kitchen and balcony.
Guests could have acces to the whole apartment including the fully equiped kitchen with electrical stove, small refrigerator and microwave oven.
There is also free wifi.
Interaction with Guests
I always go to pick up the guests to the closest Aerobus or metro stop to show the way to the place, give the keys and give a brief talk about the city.
The "Eixample" neighborhood, where the apartment is, is very close to some of the main attractions of the city: "Paseo de Gracia" Avenue, with its emblematic Antonio Gaudi's modernist buildings ("Casa Batlló" and "La Pedrera") "Plaza Catalunya", Gothic Quarter, etc.
Near the apartment there are supermarkets, small food stores, restaurants, tapas bars, cinemas, theaters, libraries, health centers, pharmacies, and the department store "El Corte Inglés” in "Plaza Catalunya".
Its location is unique to enjoy of unforgettable days to discover the city of Barcelona.
The apartment is only 5 minutes walking to the closest metro station "Universitat" (red line, number 1 and 2), "Hospital Clinic" (blue line, number 5), 1 minute to stop buses and close to the "Aerobus" stop as well.
In front of the place, there is a paid parking but insead of car I recommend the public transport (metro, bus, regional train or tram) to move around the city.
The easiest way to get downtown from the Airport is take the "Aerobus" service that leave from Terminal 1 and Terminal 2.
Other Things to Note
Bed linen and towels are included.
I can offer you an oficial guide (price 30eur) to show you Sagrada Familia or another areas in Barcelona.
Smoking inside the apartment is totally forbidden.
The smoking area is on the balcony!
We were immediately made to feel warmly welcome as the very friendly Antonio met us at the Universitat bus top and he spent a lot of time describing the area, suggestings visits to match our interests, recommending restaurants and giving many practical tips. The apartment was as described, very suitable for us and just a few minutes walk from the nearest Metro station and the nearest sights. At the end of our stay, Antonio kindly escorted us to the AirBus stop to make sure our journey home began without problems.
We would have no hesitation in recommending Antonio's place to friends and family travelling to Barcelona.
Antonio met us where the airport shuttle bus dropped us at one of the main metro stations and walked us to the apartment, about 15 minutes.
He stayed a long time explaining things and suggesting places to see and how to get there. Lots of pamphlets and maps. Very helpful. Especially the suggestion to get the t10 ticket at the metro that gets you 10 journeys on bus or train for 9e. Any number of people can use the same ticket. 2 of us did 5 trips. Just pass the ticket back to next person thru the barrier once you've gone through. Its 2.80e per single trip so great saving.
The apartment is on the 3rd floor, no lift, which is its biggest downfall, although Antonio lugged 1 case up for us. Its fairly basic but had 2 bedrooms and a small kitchen, all you want for a short stay. Supermarket nearby and butcher just up on next corner with deli and takeaway salads.
Its about 10-15 mins walk to the nearest station which is a bit of a pain.
25 mins walk to las ramblas, 20 mins walk to la pedrera(Gaudi house) but can take a bus (H10 or no. 20) from round the corner and its 2 stops. 40 mins walk to sagrada familia (Gaudi church). The thing is, the tourist stuff is spread out, so you need to use public transport.
Antonio kept in touch via text which made us feel looked after.
Antonio was a very nice host. He explained the way to the busstation near the apartment very well and picked up us personally from there to bring us to his apartment. Antonio gave us many tipps for our stay in Barcelona. Several times he asked to help us. The apartment was clean and cosy.
Great host, very communicative, answered any questions, minimal but great apartment for a short stay, good location in a safe area, fresh bedding and clean towels was a great touch!
Would definitely stay here again.
Antonio was very helpful and Nice With us he waited for us late at night , the appartenant was clean and Well located its close to every where Thanks Antonio
Antonio was a great host. He met us at the bus stop and showed us to the apartment before providing us with plenty of information about the city. The apartment itself was very small but perfectly comfortable for a short stay. It is also a 3 flight walkup so it is an ideal apartment for anyone planning on spending most of their time out.
