BELLA BARCELONA, MODERNISTA APARTMENT ON THE GRAN VIA.

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

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

Family who booked July had to cancel! Lucky guests will get a chance to late book our place this year!!

This beautiful 3 bedroom apartment in the Eixample 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!

Guestbook comments from the owner
Connie, Our trip to Barcelona was wonderful! We loved everything we saw. It is such a neat city. Your apartment was perfect! It had everything we could have possibly needed and was in perfect location. We just hopped on the Metro or walked wherever we needed to go. Thank you so much for renting it to us! We will certainly recommend it to any of our friends who plan a trip to Barcelona.

I am a Denver photographer and my husband and I brought our family to Barcelona for two years. My heart is still there and I return frequently. We love traveling but now that college is on the scene the family travel time is limited to the holidays.

The Owner purchased this apartment in 2003

Ahh, Barcelona. A city where the art is on the streets rather than locked up in museums! I fell in love with the modernista architecture, the life in the cafe's, the sea nearby, and the overall graciousness of the place. The clubs are a riot, the festivals often dangerous and very exciting, and the food is always fresh!

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!

PERFECT PLACE FOR A FAMILY TO STAY

  • 5 of 5
Bella Barcelona was a perfect place for us to stay during our trip to Barcelona. It had everything we could possibly need (and more!) and the location was perfect. We were able to walk to many of the interesting sites, and the Metro was very close when we needed it. The owner has a book with many good recommendations of places to eat, visit, and shop. The apartment was much bigger than it looked in the pictures. It was very clean. We would recommend this apartment to our friends and relatives.

GRAND PARENTS AND GRAND-DAUGHTERS

We cannot say enough about the wonderful apartment we rented from a very personable Connie.
Practically everything you could ask for in an apartment was there when you needed it. The property was as it was described and it felt like home instead of a foreign place to stay. Our grand daughters were ecstatic about their own bedrooms and the roominess of the place. Unfortunately my husband contracted a bug the morning of our arrival and was sick for a few days of our stay and I had to venture out on my own with two 15 year old girls, which I found was easy to do because of the convenience of the Metro to the apartment. And our gracious hostess, who learned from her housekeepers, that my husband was sick sent email asking about him. I was impressed at her thoughtfulness.
We would recommend it and stay there again if we returned to Barcelona.

Best apartment we've stayed in
  • 5 of 5
My husband and I have rented apartments in many European cities, but Bella Barcelona was the best.
Personal welcoming attention from Connie, the owner; comfortably furnished in a homelike manner; quiet; provided with amenities for the comfort of the traveler; close to metro station; groceries and bakery within walking distance.

I recommend this apartment highly.

BELLA BARCELONA IS BELLA!

  • 5 of 5
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Bella Barcelona - it was just as described and pictured - no surprises. Barcelona is a great city and we spent ours days walking it from one end to the other. We would arrive back at Bella Barcelona exhausted and it was then that we truly appreciated feeling at home in Bella Barcelona. We would throw open the windows in the living room, pour the wine, bring out the bread and cheese and melt into the comfortable sofas until we could rally for a nighttime stroll or dinner in the neighborhood. The apartment is spacious - bigger than it appears in the pictures, the beds are super comfortable, kitchen is well stocked and it is very clean and well maintained. The location is very convenient - walking distance to all sites (if you're walkers - metro is also convenient) and plenty of stores, bars, restaurants in the vicinity. Best of all - Connie made it so easy! The hassle free rental arrangements and reasonable cost, printed directions for the taxi from the airport and keys in hand before leaving the US - could not have been easier. Thanks Connie!

LOOK NO FURTHER - YOU'VE FOUND THE PERFECT APARTMENT

We had a great time in Barcelona, and what made it perfect was renting this condo. This was our 6th rental with VRBO and by far the best! Working with Connie could not have been easier, we had the keys a couple of weeks ahead of time and when entered it was like arriving at a second home that someone else has been keeping fresh and clean.

Even better is the location, the metro is right at the corner and we only had to wait 3 minutes at the most at any given time. Across the street on the left is a little bakery with delicious croissants and a pastry shop across the street to the right. Around the corner they have a great fruit store and gourmet butcher and a block or two past that is a market and wine store.

We cooked a number of our meals at the condo and there was plenty of cookware and utensils with a good selection of herbs in the cupboard. The rest of the condo was perfectly decorated by someone with a keen eye that put in a lot of time and effort. Make sure to check out the master bed room shower. I will be sure to keep it in mind if when we redo our bathroom in the near future.

Great place, would stay again.

EXCELLENT IN EVERY WAY

  • 5 of 5
This apartment is a winner on all fronts; excellent location, superb size, easy and welcoming host and wonderfully equipped for all the comforts a guest could want. We particularly enjoyed the informational notes placed throughout the apartment explaining how everything worked. We had a lovely stay and highly recommend this apartment. We hope to be lucky enough to return someday.
