I am living in Amsterdam and Barcelona. But I just moved in in this apartment in Barcelona. It is not competly finished yet. There is no tv yet Don't know if I am going to get one because it is nice and quiet this way. Downside is that the toilet is a bit small for somebody from Holland(1 meter 85).
There is no airconditioning. There are good working fans in every room, but the building keeps cool very well.
* WiFi (free and fast)
* Linen and towels provided.

I choose it because it is an old style apartment. If you are looking for a modern apartment you should not go for this one.
The building is in turn in a quiet and pleasant residential neighborhood, with excellent opportunities’ for catering, entertainment and access to landmarks near the city of Barcelona.
Nice apartment perfect for tourists wishing to discover the charm of the Catalan capital.

You are 30 minutes walking from the beach. There are busses (and metro) nearby which go to the beach..
The Eixample area of Barcelona was built on the nineteenth century. It is the birthplace of the Artistic Modernist movement of Antoni Gaudi which is its main reference.
In this area are the impressive Sagrada Familia, the two famous Gaudí housesLa Pedrera and the Manzana de la Discordia, the Hospital de la Santa Creu i Sant Pau.
A large part of the appeal of the Eixample is the mythical avenue Passeig de Gracia, one of the most famous avenues in Spain due to its importance for shopping, business and a great showcase of outstanding works of modernist architecture is compared to the Champs Elysees in Paris or Fifth avenue in New York.
This area is full of great modernist works, such as Gaudi's Casa Batlló, Casa de Puig i Cadafalch Amatller and Lleo Morera by Domènech i Muntaner well known as the Manzana de la Discordia.
Also in this area you can find the University of Barcelona, which is an elegant building with beautiful gardens and House Gofverichs Boada House built by one of Gaudi's collaborators in early 1900. Two markets in this area normally frequented by local people are Ninot and the Mercat de Sant Antoni.
In addition, this area has many museums such as the Fundació Antoni Tàpies,Barcelona Egyptian Museum, the foundation Francisco Godia.

My friend and I had a 5 night stay at the apartment in mid May. Communication was great and Alexander provided lots of useful information to help us plan our trip. Key pick up / drop off arrangements were easy. The Aerobus drop off / pick up stops and the Metro are a block or so away (a couple of minutes walk) and Las Ramblas is also within walking distance (15-20 minutes) so a well positioned apartment. The neighbourhood is safe and has many great restaurants, coffee shops and supermarkets close by. We particularly enjoyed a drink on the roof top bar of the Villa Emilia Hotel which is a block away. The Apartment was clean and comfortable. Overall, a great stay and we would recommend this apartment for a short visit to Barcelona.
The apartment was extremely spacious and beautiful - just like the photos, and my friends and I enjoyed our stay. The only down point was upon arrival, as the location to pick up the keys was lost in an early email, which lead to a frustrating 15 mins. After that was sorted, it was nothing but smooth sailing, and I would recommend the place to anyone.
Die Wohnung ist sehr geschmackvoll eingerichtet und gut ausgestattet. Unmittelbare Nähe zum Flughafenbus und zur Metro, Innenstadt zu Fuß erreichbar. Die gesamte Kommunikation hat sehr gut geklappt, auch die Schlüsselübergabe hat problemlos funktioniert. Wir kommen gerne wieder!
Bonne location, bien décoré. Le métro est proche et on peut aussi profiter de quelques bons restaurants. Toutefois,à l'apartement, le plancher est sale. Il aurait besoin d'un bon lavage et aussi un balayage minutieux. Proche de la table, je me suis rentré des petits morceaux de verres sous le pied...Ayoye!!!!! Mon mari n'a pas apprécié l'étroitesse de salle de la toilette ( elle est séparée de la salle de douche ) Aussi, pas de garde-robe seulement quelques tablettes. Présentement, il y a de la construction derrière l'immeuble. A partir de 7:30hrs AM, la grue arrive!!!!!!
