Description of the apartment -
· Beautiful 2 bedroom apartment with a glass-enclosed balcony on the 5th floor of an 100-year-old Art Nouveau building, renovated outside and inside. The floors are still the original colorful mosaic, and the ceilings are 9 feet high. There is an elevator, air conditioning, central heating, and a full kitchen with granite countertop, pots & pans, dishes, etc. One full bathroom with toilet, sink, and half-tub with shower. The living room has a dining table and chairs, a sofa, a 21-inch TV, DVDs, etc. You can see the tips of La Sagrada Familia from the enclosed balcony.
The apartment fits one to five although an occupancy of four would be the ideal for the size.
In case your dates are not available in this apartment, we have a few other 2 bedroom apartments in the same building. Please see our other VRBO ads or our website.
Description of location -
· The apartment is located in the beautiful Eixample, halfway between Gaudi's La Pedrera (also known as Casa Milà) on the Passeig de Gracia, and Gaudi's La Sagrada Familia, just a ten-minute walk from either one. Casa Amatller and Casa Batlló are at the same short distance as well. The Eixample district has the most beautiful Art Nouveau architecture in the city dating from the last half of the XIX century.
There are many cafes, restaurants, tapas bars, and shops in the neighborhood also. The 115-year-old Market of La Concepció, where you can do your grocery shopping in a traditional setting, is just 200 meters from the apartment. This market has fresh meat, fruits & vegetables, cheeses, etc. as well as a florist and a grocery store with a good selection of local wines.
The Eixample is recommended as a convenient location to see all the different sights around the city, but not as crowded as the Old City. You can get a taste of real local life.
· There is a bus stop on the corner right by the apartment that will take you to almost all the places of interest in the city, if you don't feel like walking. The city buses are nice and modern, and run often. The apartment is also less than 5 minutes walking from the metro station of Verdaguer, on both the yellow and blue lines. The upscale shopping street, Passeig de Gracia, is just 1 stop away, though you can easily walk there from the apartment. Plaza Catalunya (the very center of the city and also walkable) and the start of Las Ramblas is just a 6 minute metro ride away, and the beaches are just a 10 minute ride. There is also a parking garage close to the apartment, although renting a car in Barcelona is not recommended.

Extras - cellphone, computer rental, daily maid service, grocery and food services
Staying at the Valencia A apartments was one of the highlights of our trip to Spain. The apartment exceeded our expectations and I have told my friends and family this will be the place I choose to stay anytime I come to Barcelona. The location was great, the apartment was spacious and I loved having a balcony and rooftop terrace. I want to thank you for all your help with booking and answering my questions. We had an amazing trip and I think having a place to call home for the week greatly contributed to a memorable trip. Hope to make it back to Barcelona soon! Eric, New York, NY
The apart just as described, cliean, wifi, etc.. heads up though no, toiletries provided so be sure to stop by the little shopping mart down the street to purchase soap, toilet paper (one roll provided) and other essentials.
The apt. is in a great location literally a few steps away from La Sagrada Familia, walking distance from the Metro. Our greeter Katia was very helpful and nice, she provided local maps and guidence on how to get around Barcelona using the metro, she pointed out areas to avoid as well as "must see" sights. Safety is extremely important for 2 girls traveling alone, we felt safe in this apartment and neighborhood. Would definately book with Negre apartment rentals again.
My husband and mother and I stayed here for three nights in November 2012. The apartment was clean and on a relatively quiet street, close to the metro. The pictures posted on the website are accurate; however, there is a reason there is no picture of the bathroom. It was tiny. We are all small people but you can be standing at the sink and touch the shower wall and the toilet at the same time. It was functional, but if this is something that matters to you a lot, this is probably not your best option. The rest of the apartment was spacious enough for the amount of time we spent there. The management was very nice; met us at the apartment when we arrived and gave us information on the apartment and the city. When we had a maintenance issue, they were extremely quick to fix it and let us know. They were easy to correspond with by email before arrival as well. If we visit Barcelona again, I would definitely stay at a BCN Apartment, but I would probably try out one of their other apartment units.
I stayed here with my three kids at the end of July for a week and we LOVED the apartment. The owners are so helpful in advance with communications and the manager who checked us in answered every question we had before we even asked it. They had available all the information we needed to get around the city easily. The apartment itself was clean and well equipped, just beautiful. We all loved it. It had a charming balcony off one of the bedrooms, and the only problem we experienced was that we had an absolute downpour one day and the rain was so intense, it leaked into the apartment through the closed balcony doors! Luckily we had plenty of towels....All part of the adventure! Just a terrific stay and I would not hesitate to recommend their apartments and would certainly stay in any of them if/when we go back to Barcelona.
We stayed here for 3 nights in late December 2010. The apartment was charming and comfortable. We also thought that the location was perfect. It was very close to the metro and buses and within easy walking distance to La Sagrada Familia, Passeig de Gracia, etc. The manager, Marcela, was gracious and helpful. Our communication for arrangements was easy. They even provided helpful hints for parking, dining out, etc. We hope to return to the magical city of Barcelona again someday and stay here again.
We stayed in this apartment in June 2008 with our 3 kids. It is a great location and has all of the comforts of home. The manager of the unit is very helpful and friendly and it was great to have internet access to keep in touch with our family at home. Charming Barcelona apartment!
We stayed here for 3 nights in May. The apartment was charming and comfortable - exactly as described. The location was perfect - close to metro and buses and within easy walking distance to La Sagrada Familia and Passeig de Gracia. Booking and subsequent communication couldn't have been easier. We were very comfortable here and look forward to coming back for a much longer stay.
bars, cafes, restaurants (local cuisine, paella, chinese, creperie and natural fruit juices, all within 100 meters), beach, kids playground
