L'Antiga Esquerra de l'Eixample Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Unique Designer Apartment close to Rambla de Catalunia and Paseo de Gracia

The apartment is situated in a residential building of modernist style built around 1904 by the architect Maurici Augé Robert who was also author to other elegant buildings and houses of similar style built in the Eixample and one of the candidates for the construction of the Columbus monument for the preparation of the Expo 1888. The apartment itself has a unique style of high quality, decorated with design furniture. Guests enjoy a living room with sofa and dining table and two balconies facing the street. There is a lot of natural light coming through two big windows. The bedroom comes with two single beds pulled together, with the possibility to make it double upon request, the kitchen is fully equipped as well as the bathroom which comes with fresh towels ready to be used upon arrival. Building and area are safe, there is a doorman in the building. Due to the apartments location it is a perfect base for exploring the city as main attractions like Placa Catalunia, Las Ramblas (Gothic quarter), La Pedrera, etc. are reachable within a few minutes walking

This lovely stylish apartment is located in the heart of Barcelona; close to Gaudí's La Pedrera, the visitor to Barcelona will find themselves in the heart of the city, experiencing true life in Barcelona....

The building is characterized by a rich stone ornamentation such as the Salomonic columns and the busts carved into the lintels, specially the one dominating the front door.

The owner of the apartment has taken care of the decoration himself, as owner of a high end furniture and decoration business that also through the close relationship between his family and Salvador Dalí, has collaborated in the furnishing of well known buildings such as the Teatre-Museu Dalí in Figueres, the Casa-Museu Salvador Dalí in Portlligat and the Casa-Museu Castell Gala Dalí in Púbol.

This wonderful and exclusive apartment is located right by the city's most elegant commercial boulevard, “Passeig de Gracia”.

The guest staying at the Casa Verdu apartment will be assured easy access to this lively Mediterranean city and will find that this apartment is a great spot from which to map out daily jaunts and from which to explore all that this fantastic city has to offer...

Located on the corner with Rambla de Catalunia, this apartment offers the guest the best of both worlds; close enough to Plaza Cataluña and La Ramblas that the guest can make their way down to enjoy such wonderful experiences as La Boqueria market, El Born or the Gothic Quarter, and as you walk out of the apartment building the guest can enjoy the huge shopping Mecca of Paseo de Gracia

AMAZING LOCATION & A SUPER LOVELY APARTMENT !!!

Amazing location & a super lovely apartment !!!
  • 5 of 5
Thank you Marcel! It was an absolute pleasure to deal with you and we fell in love with the apartment. From the first email, to our arrival & the orientation you provided, and arranging a taxi to the airport on the last day...you were an email or phone call away. I so appreciated your level of service, professionalism, timeliness and good nature. When we travel, we stay in apartments as opposed to hotels and I have to say that this has been my best find yet...and I've scoped out many apartments in many locations! I had been dreaming of my trip to Barcelona for many months and our stay could not have been more perfect. It will remain a very special memory. For those reading this, we were 4 adults in our mid 50's staying here for a 10 night stay. The apartment was spotless and exactly as the pictures – the black & white décor, exquisite furnishings & building facade provided much character. All the beds (even the two in the dining room that dropped down) were very comfy – 12” mattresses on all beds! First day in, we immediately felt at home and didn't want to leave. Located a few blocks from much of Gaudi's work too...perfect location. We walked to Sagrada Familia, the beach, the Cathedral in the Gothic area, etc...apt was close enough to the main touristy sites, restaurant and plenty of shopping and yet resided on the cuff of quieter streets. PERFECT! Huge grocery store 7 minute walk away, and bakery and small store around the corner. We cooked-up a few meals and enjoyed a few dinners indoors, it was lovely. Plenty of taxis at your door-steps. A/C worked very well, it was nice to come back to a very cool apartment as the weather was quite hot in July. Wifi/Internet perfect! Shower water pressure, amazing! On Day 2 the coffee maker stopped working, Marcel replaced the unit within hours...that's service!!!

For those looking for a great apartment, look no further, you won't be disappointed with this find...this is the place to stay! Safe neighborhood too. I would not hesitate to recommend this place and when we return to Barcelona we would definitely stay here again, definitely! Thank you for everything Marcel, be well...Linda & Murray

GREAT APARTMENT, EXCELLENT LOCATION. WOULD BE IMPROVED BY A FEW EXTRA AMENITIES.

  • 4 of 5
Marcel was very kind to us and as a couple we were very comfortable in this small, fashionable apartment right in the heart of all the Modernist architectural wonders. Virtually everything interesting in Barcelona was within walking distance or at least an easy, quick bus/metro/walk away. This being said, the only toiletries/amenities in the apartment were salt, pepper, pump soap at the bathroom sink and toilet paper. There were no shower products (not even bar soap), only one waste basket in the entire apartment and no tissues or basic kitchen products (like olive oil, vinegar and coffee). There were only two wash cloths for the four nights we stayed and I could have used at least three more of those as well. We did not expect luxury, but given that we had traveled a long distance and I arrived with a terrible head cold, the lack of these simple things was a definite inconvenience.

As mentioned in a previous review, the two twin beds pushed together do not exactly make a proper king bed as the "crack" inbetween the beds does not accommodate much repositioning or snuggling. I would actually have preferred a smaller "double" or "queen" bed to this arrangement but given that I was sick anyhow we made the best of it.

I would stay here again but be sure next time to check a bag with all the "extras" that would bring a more basic level of comfort. I do thank Marcel for his attention and hospitality.

THE PERFECT CITY BREAK APARTMENT

  • 5 of 5
This stunning apartment is just perfect for a city break to Barcelona. The location is excellent and in walking distance of all the main attractions. It is decorated beautifully to the highest quality and has everything you could need. The service you receive from Marcel through the booking process is excellent and then he met us at the apartment to give us the keys and show us how everything works. Marcel will also give recommendations and has maps available to show where the nearest amenities are. We had the most wonderful 3-night break and this apartment definitely topped it off. I would recommend this to anyone. A 5-star stay.

PERFECT LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
We would recommend this apartment for a great time in Barcelona. The location is just right - an easy walk to most of the tourist sites, while very quiet.

The apartment is exactly as it is pictured on the site, clean, well maintained, with friendly, helpful service.

BEAUTIFUL, CLASSY, COZY

  • 5 of 5
Superb apartment, stands out of the average because of its history and also the decor. We really really loved it!
Marcel was organizing everything even the pick up taxi to the airport in our last day, and everything was just great.
This was our first time in Barcelona and we just fell in love with the city.
I would love to come back, see if there is any luck next year :)

The apartment is located at the edge between the old town (Raval, Gothic quarter, Las Ramblas and El Borne) and the Eixample with Placa Catalunia (the main square) and Paseo de Gracia just around the corner. It is situated in a typical Eixample building at the corner with Rambla de Catalunia.

Eixample, which translates as 'extension' in recognition of its status as the newer part of the city, is a large area north of Placa Catalunya spreading left and right of Passeig de Gracia.

Nowadays Eixample is famous for being home to the majority of Barcelona's art nouveau masterpieces, and a high-class residential and shopping area.

Passeig de Gracia is the heart of Eixample and the line that cuts the area into two from 'Eixample left' and 'Eixample right'.

Here you will find most of Barcelona's international designer shops such as Chanel and MaxMara. Also along this road are La Pedrera and Casa Batllo, two of Gaudi's characteristically dreamlike buildings. There are many interesting art galleries in the area and if art appeals then be sure to have a look in Fundacion Antoni Tapies which is just off Passeig de Gracia and has a permanent collection of this Catalan artist's work.

Eixample is a safe and residential part of the city but there is also a vibrant night-life and a thriving café culture. Eixample is a beautiful barrio to wander round, take in the glorious architecture and people-watch from one of the many terrace cafés.

It is in Eixample that you will find some of the best, and most expensive, restaurants in town. This combined with some internationally known bars such as Dry Martini makes the area a very pleasant place to spend an evening.

Transport to and from the area is good. Eixample is serviced by several metro stops, as well as the FGC train. However the area is very central and most other parts of the city are within walking distance.
