Overview

Dreta de l'Eixample Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Sleeps 1-6 in central comfort

Spacious, modern apartment in central Barcelona with air conditioning/heating throughout, parquet floors, marble worktops and contemporary furnishings. A maximum of six people can live comfortably in the three bedrooms (double room, twin room and further bedroom with bunk bed). There are two bathrooms , a spacious lounge-dining-room, a kitchen with dining area and a balcony large enough to sit all six people. Appliances include wide screen TV with BBC satellite TV, DVD, dishwasher, washing machine, oven, hob, microwave, kettle, toaster, hair dryer, iron and ironing board. There is also a cot and a high chair.

Your host Cameron speaks English, French, Spanish or Catalan.

From the apartment you can walk to much of the city in about 15 minutes including the Sagrada Familia, Pg de Gracia and El Born. Your neighbours are typical Barcelona middle-class couples and families. The building and neighbourhood, are central and quiet as well as safe. Third floor with lift.

Sights walkable within 15 minutes: Sagrada Familia, Passeig de Gracia (La Padrera, Casa Battlo) Barri Gotic (Ramblas) El Born.

The main tourist attractions are walk able with the exception of the attractions of Montjuic which are easily reached on the same metro line (purple) with a stop two blocks from the apartment or Bus 55 also 2 blocks away.

Access from airports: This apartment is particularly handy for arrivals from Girona Airport as the apartment is just five blocks from the Estacio del Nord where the coaches from Girona Airport will drop you.

From Barcelona Airport the apartment is a 25 minute taxi ride straight down Gran Via.

Business guests: The apartment is located near to all the major business areas and exactly between the two main conference centres of Barcelona Forum and Barcelona Fira - both 5-10 minutes in a taxi.

Ideal location to see Barcelona

  • 4 of 5
4.5 stars
Spacious apartment ideal for 5 (max 6) people, and is true to description given by the owner. The double bedroom is the nicest, there is also a smaller twin bedded room, plus another bedroom with bunk beds.
Ideal location, not too far out from the centre, Sagrada Familia cathedral is about 10 minutes away by foot.
Well equipped kitchen with washing machine, full oven & hob, microwave & large fridge/freezer.
There are two bathrooms, but would recommend showering in the large one only (as the shower in the smaller one flooded the place!).

Would recommend this apartment as an ideal base to see Barcelona.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your review. Will see what we can do about the second shower, I think the curtain is too short so it should be easy enough to change and solve the problem!
Fair reviews really help people to make a holiday choice and this one seems to me to be just that.

Great location, good amenities, poor cleanliness.

  • 3 of 5
The area is wonderful. The apartment is truly convenient to so much of the city. Third floor over the main level. Small lift, works well. Common area/lobby is clean and simple. Easy to find. Safe entrance.

Great space. Open. Warm. Comfortable. We opened the windows and the breeze through the apartment was wonderful. Main room is a good size. Simple decorations. Open. Lots of windows facing the street, great light, opens onto balcony.

The balcony is inviting and just the right size for breakfast for a tight family of five or romantic cocktails for two.

The furniture is very dirty. The larger couch is comfortable BUT needs badly to be cleaned. We have used blankets over it to sit on. the smaller couch is dark enough not to show the same stains the other one but we've used a blanket nonetheless. The decorative pillows are nasty.

The dinner table is between the kitchen and main room. Good size. Good flow to the room. Little hutch works well.

The bedrooms are ample in size and have enough closet/shelf/drawer space. Master (queen-sized bed) and the double room (2 x twin beds) open onto the balcony. The bunk bed room also has room for a crib (provided). Bunk bed room has the least light of all the rooms.

All of the beds are dusty and need a serious cleaning. Nearly all of the pillows are dusty, lumpy, nasty. Bring your own.

The kitchen is compact and easily usable. Very good appliances - Bosch fridge; Balay oven, microwave, gas and dishwasher. Washing machine in kitchen. Small breakfast table in the kitchen.

Pans are old and battered. Pots are OK. wooden utensils are OK. tea kettle is disgusting. Do not use it without scouring it. Needs to be replaced.

Bathrooms are efficient, clean. One is a bit tight but completely usable. Shower heads are nasty. Usable but nasty. Need to be replaced.

Bottom line:
• Owner (Cameron / Boxer Apartments) is easy to work with.
• Location is great.
• Amenities are average to above average.
• Cleanliness is poor, major room for improvement.

Owner's Response: On arrival the family didn't just drop bags as requested but moved in and so the last hour of the cleaning was cancelled. The basic cleaning had been finished but an hour extra would have covered the things they mention so it seems a little unfair to complain about it. We will look at the shower heads but one is brand new from two weeks ago. The kettle is regularly cleaned with vinegar and I've checked, was not so scaled as mentioned but Barcelona does have very hard water. It seems unnecessary to mention this... The cushions are lovely in fabrics that match the modernist facades opposite...

Pillows are a constant drama with people wanting different sorts but each person has two pillows of two different sorts and they were replaced this January and are replaced yearly.

We are confident that the accommodation is great for the price, is properly cleaned and has reasonable facilities. It is true the sofa is worn but it is not dirty.

Otherwise the review is fair but sometimes people should understand the difference between 5 people staying in an apartment at 160 euros per night or the equivalent in a hotel for 5 people of at least 300 euros per night, probably more like 400 euros.

The apartment is located in the modernist area of Barcelona, the Example or extension to the old city built from about 1900 onwards. The apartment is on the edge of the historic city centre and has a lovely view of modernist buildings across the road. The Example is built on a grid pattern with wide Parisian style, tree lined avenues. It is a professional area for living and working and also contains many of the city's tourist highlights including works by Gaudi and other modernist architects all of which are within easy walking distance. You can also walk in 10 minutes to the City Park, El Born and Passeig de Gracia. The Ramblas is about a 15 minute walk or one stop on the metro. For your convenience there is a bakery and a small supermarket just under the apartment and many restaurants nearby. At night the area is quiet.

Other Activities: City centre location in a city near the beach and the mountains
