Overview

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 district of Barcelona and one of the candidates for the construction of the Columbus monument for the preparation of the Expo 1888. 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 apartment itself is as unique as the building. 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.

Our guests in this apartment enjoy a spacious living room with a white sofa, 2 classy arm chairs and a glass dining table with 6 chairs, a flat screen TV and DVD player. From the living room there is access to two balconies from where one can overview the street down to the corner of Rambla de Catalunya. There is a lot of natural light coming through two big windows. The bedroom (formerly equipped with 2 single beds pushed together) now contains a double bed (180cm wide) with a mattress of highest quality. In front of the bed, in the white cupboard there is the second TV for guests who enjoy watching TV from the bed.

The kitchen is fully equipped with everything one would require to prepare and enjoy a meal in the apartment. Further on at the guest’s disposal are fridge, freezer, oven, stove, washer, dryer, dish washer, toaster, coffee maker, kettle as well as an iron and an iron board. The bathroom in this apartment offers a sink, WC and a spacious walk in shower.

The building’s community is quiet and friendly.

In general:

The apartment and the area are safe. During the day there is a doorman in the building. In order to get into the apartment one would have to pass 3 solid doors (building door, staircase door and apartment door) all equipped with security locks.

Located on the corner with Rambla de Catalunya, this apartment offers the guest the best of both worlds; close enough to Plaza Cataluña, Las Ramblas, La Boqueria market, El Born or the Gothic Quarter which all can be reached within 10 minutes walking down beautiful Rambla de Catalunya. On the other hand famous sights such as La Pedrera and Casa Battló are just a stone through from the apartment. Also Sagrada Familia, the symbol of Barcelona can be reached walking within about 15 minutes. Paseo de Gracia; the second street from the apartment is Barcelona's wealthiest avenue. Here is where all the famous designer brands have their stores.

There is cute little bakery right next door and the area itself is filled with quality tapas restaurants. During the check-in procedure our guests will receive detailed explanations about everything that is useful and important to know when visiting this great city. We have a selection of restaurant and tapas bar recommendations prepared and will advise where to find the next grocery store, about shop opening hours, etc.. Please feel free to ask questions already when inquiring about the apartment.

Please feel free to also visit our other apartment published on this website which are located basically around the corner all in one building right on Passeig de Gracia:

Paseo de Gracia B: lisiting 1614842 (2 bedrooms/ 2 bathrooms/ max. 6 pers.)

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

Owner's Response: Hi Linda, Thank you for your “wow”- review. It is a very beautiful reward for me and Andrea getting this kind of reaction from our guests. It feels really good to know that you feel we handled our part well in order to make this trip to Barcelona a memorable experience for you. Again, thank you for being such wonderful tenants. I certainly hope you and Murray will be back soon. Kind regards, Marcel

An amazing week in Barcelona

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is just as nice as it appears on the photos. It is stylish and comfortable and ideal for 2 people and could accommodate 4.

Everything worked perfectly during our stay. The building is not only a beautiful example of Modernista architecture, but also very secure and very well located on a tree-lined busy street a few meters from the Ramblas and the Paseo de Gracia. In spite of being on the street side with two big beautiful French doors and two small lovely balconies, this apartment was remarkably quiet and we slept like babies. You can walk almost anywhere (to the Ramblas, to Plaza Cataluña, to the Barrio Gótico, to the Sagrada Familia, to the Avenida Diagonal and Gracia neighborhood, etc.) from the apartment if you don't mind walking anywhere from 10 to 45 minutes. Walking in this city is a feast to the eye (and the palate) since it gives you a good opportunity to stop here and there to taste the incredible "montaditos", the delicious pastries, good coffee, sparkling cava and so much more! I would recommend following the restaurant recommendations on their carefully done notebook for guests. We enjoyed enormously the bakery next door (which is new and not in the notebook) with buttery croissants, great bread, freshly pressed orange juice every morning; The Basque restaurant, "Taktika Berri" (169 Career Valencia); "La Ciutat Condal" on Las Ramblas has the best tapas! But I digress...Metro stations are very close by, and taxis are reasonable ($4-8) and so much fun as you can engage the driver in conversation about soccer, politics, the economy, food, you name it, and learn more about the people of this great city!

When I arrived on Sunday morning, Marcel greeted us and showed us the apartment, and spent an hour explaining what to do, see and eat in town. He was not in a hurry, and answered all questions. He took notes about some questions I had and promised to enquire and email back the answers -which he did the following day in great detail and with all sorts of useful links.

This kind of attention to detail is what sets apart the experience of renting this particular apartment. You know you are in good hands. Marcel and Andrea are professionals, but also these people love and know their city and it shows. I would highly recommend this apartment and this managing company. I have been renting apartments all over Europe for a long time, and it is rare to find this type of commitment to excellence! Bravo!

Amazing Apartment in Amazing Location

  • 5 of 5

Everything in this apartment is great, from furniture, cleanliness, security, comfort, glam, location, and customer service. Perfect location away from the tourists but still within walking distance to many sites and tons of great restaurants around. Two metro stations within few blocks. Very quiet at night even though it is located just half a block from the big street. Very safe neighborhood. Communication with Marcel was very prompt, professional, and pleasure. All the pictures posted here are exactly as they are in the apartment. Yes, it's that beautiful and nice. I love this apartment! When I go back to Barcelona, I will book this apartment in a heartbeat, and would recommend to anybody considering a trip to Barcelona to stay here.

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.

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.
