Overview

La Nova Esquerra de l'Eixample Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartment, 3 Bedrooms + Library, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

You have found a gem, the photos cannot do our apartment justice due to the lovely high ceilings and beautiful modernista details from 1912.

This beautiful 3 bedroom apartment in the Eixample (Aye-shahm-pla) district of Barcelona is located right above the Rocafort metro entrance on the Gran Via. It is an easy 7 block walk from here to the heart of the city and only 5 short blocks from the Placa Espanya and Montjuic, home of the Olympic stadium and beautiful hiking trails.

Some of the trendiest restaurants are only a few blocks away. There is an elevator, washer/dryer, and, both supermarkets and fresh markets nearby. The modern kitchen is fully equipped.

Traveling with kids? There are parks all around us including the Miro Park where the playground has a little coffee bar so you can enjoy a cup of coffee or a beer while the kids play. Restaurants are very child friendly and people are often out until late at night without a second thought! Be sure to head to Tibidabu and have fun in this theme park that overlooks the city!

No kids? No problem! Nightlife abounds in this town! There is Flamenco, great local food, clubs are close, taxis frequent and this peaceful haven to return to at the end of your night. Unlike other cities, life in Barcelona is on the streets, the art is viewed from the doorstep and the wine flows freely!

Why so inexpensive? It costs so much just to get to Europe! I would rather people travel and see the world than gouge my guests so in the spirit of encouraging people to find out how wonderful this city is I keep the price low. The apartment is beautiful and quite a bargain!

About The Owner

I am a Denver photographer and my husband and I brought our family to Barcelona for two years. At the end of our time there I couldn't bear to leave so we bought an apartment. My heart is still there and I return frequently. We love traveling and enjoy skiing, scuba diving and hiking. Our children are no longer under foot so we are traveling and seeing our friends worldwide.

The Owner purchased this apartment in 2003

Why The Owner chose La Nova Esquerra de l'Eixample

Ahh, Barcelona. A city where the art is on the streets rather than locked up in museums! Come and fall in love with the modernista architecture, the life in the cafe's, the sea nearby, and the overall graciousness of this lively city! The clubs are a full, the festivals often dangerous and very exciting, and the food is always fresh! Our place is the perfect launching pad and refuge. As some of our guests say, out in the morning and back in the evening to have a lovely dinner with food purchased at the local markets, priceless!

What makes this apartment unique

Living where you can walk or take very fast public transportation is a huge plus in this city. It is built on a human scale rather than for cars which makes it very accessible as well as a nightmare for traffic! By and large, It is a safe place as long as you are not on the Ramblas~think Paris or Rome and keep your jewelry discrete. I frequently see elderly people on the street at 12:30 walking home without fear. With so much to do, anytime of year is fun to be in Barcelona!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had the time of our lives and can’t wait to go back. We didn’t have near enough time in Barcelona, other than to get a flavor of the city and know that we must return. Susanna was amazing, fun and so informative. She helped up pick out all the fresh foods for our dinner that night. She really is a gem. Thank you so much for hooking us up with her. The apt was beyond our expectations and we were all just giddy school girls again. I think the most fun part was us girls in the kitchen drinking wine and preparing our meal with everything that we purchased at the marketplace that day. I absolutely love the kitchen.

Best Vacation Ever

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have traveled quite a bit in Europe (he is born and raised in Norway) and this was one of our best vacations ever thanks to Bella Barcelona. You just can't beat this apt. or Barcelona! The apartment is so perfectly located for everything. We like to walk, so we walked everywhere from the apt., but the metro is right there too. And so many great restaurants! We were really overwhelmed with the apartment. Connie adds some extra nice touches and it is the first time we thought the apt. was better than the photos. I can't wait to go back, in fact we've already booked it again!

Bella Barcelona is the best!

  • 5 of 5

We booked a stay at the Bella Barcelona this past August, for myself, my husband and our three children, based on the wonderful reviews. The apartment was perfect and I returned from the holiday telling all of our family and friends we had found the place you need to stay if you ever have the chance to go to Barcelona. Connie was so helpful through the booking process and trip planning. The photos do not fully do justice to the size and beauty of the apartment. It is such an amazing value compared to staying in a hotel. The apartment was very clean and stocked with everything you could want and more. On top of what you might expect Connie provided coffee pods, laundry detergent, books, adapters, a printer, kitchen staples, lots of extra linens, on and on... The master bedroom has a very comfortable king size bed, and a beautiful newly renovated bathroom. Our boys enjoyed having their own beds in the room they shared, and our daughter was very happy in her own room. It was nice to have the second bathroom near their rooms. We liked the full kitchen for making quite a few meals in, the washer/dryer was much appreciated so we could pack lighter, and the air conditioning worked well. The living room/dining area was really comfortable and we also liked curling up with a book in the library on the opposite end of the apartment. The historic apartment building was quiet and very secure. Our kids just loved the small old fashioned elevator which worked well for getting up to the apartment, though often we just walked up the few flights of stairs. We loved the location, so close to the metro which will take you to all the sights. We were able to spend time at the beaches, make it to an FC Barcelona match at Camp Nou, take a daytrip to Montserrat, tour Sagrada Familia, and Parc Guell with ease. As well Montjuic, Las Arenas shopping, good restaurants, the playground at Joan Miro park, and a wonderful gelateria are an easy walk from the front door. Though there are many tourists around this is also an area where Catalan families live, so I felt we had a more authentic local experience staying here. We have stayed at many vacation rentals and I just wish they were all as amazing as this one. Thanks for the wonderful stay and I hope we have the opportunity to return to the Bella Barcelona soon!

Fantastisk bra sted sentralt i Barcelona

  • 5 of 5

Vi bodde her gjennom jula 2014 og hadde en fantastisk tid i leiligheten. Leiligheten var ren og pen, og så ut til å være godt vedlikeholdt. Den store fordelen var muligheten for å lage mat i et velutstyrt kjøkken. Spesielt greit var dette på 1. juledag da det meste var stengt i Barcelona. Leiligheten føltes ellers mye større enn bildene gav inntrykk av i annonsen. Vi anbefaler på det høyeste å bo i denne leiligheten.

We love Bella Barcelona

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at Bella Barcelona! It felt like staying with a friend, as it was well equipped and very comfortable. The metro is just outside the door, but it is not a far walk to many sights if you prefer. We made breakfast and a couple of dinners in the kitchen and had no troubles finding what we needed. The nespresso machine was a nice bonus. The washer and dryer worked well, and allowed us to pack lighter. We even found beach towels and a volleyball for the beach! The teenager and 21 yr old "kids" liked having their own rooms. Wireless was great to have and we were able to print our boarding passes for our flight to save time at the airport. Stepped out the door at 7 am and hailed a taxi in less than a minute for the ~15 minute ride to the airport (we did have the speediest driver ever!). Thank you Sid and Connie for a great time!

Fabulous stay at Bella Barcelona

  • 5 of 5

My family (includes 2 teenagers) absolutely loved our recent 4-night stay in "Bella Barcelona" on the Gran Via. It is a spacious and bright apartment in an excellent location, right next to a central metro station, and includes every amenity you would want (washer/dryer, 2 full bathrooms, air conditioning and fans, wireless, kitchen supplies etc.). It feels like "home" from the moment you walk in, and we enjoyed cooking and relaxing as much as we did exploring the wonders of Barcelona. Connie is incredibly helpful and sent us a list of things to do in advance, offered great suggestions and answered questions; there are maps and brochures for guests, and a book full of restaurant recommendations. We have a vegetarian in the family and really enjoyed a place called "Copacetic" right nearby; "Sesamo" was another favorite about a 20 minute walk away. I can't imagine a nicer place to stay in Barcelona and we also felt like it was a great value.
