In the heart of emblematic Gracia's neighborhood 1 and 2-bedroom apartments. In the heart of Gracia. Great location
A perfect "home"! We arrived after more than 24 hours of traveling and were so glad that we had taken advantage of the offer to have a taxi waiting for us. The fellow was kind, spoke English and was willing to wait while we filed “missing baggage” forms! We were met by an apartment managers who explained how everything worked, made certain we had maps and a basic understanding of where stores/subway/etc. were located, and reassured us that our airlines could contact their office when our luggage was found.
We found the apartment to be absolutely immaculate. The large windows in both the living area and bedroom provided wonderful light during the day and the privacy screens gave us the ability to close off the world at night. The mattresses were firm but comfortable. Good closet space too.
The bathroom was large with plenty of space to put our “stuff” – and we rank the shower has one of the best we’ve encountered! We like to cook, and the kitchen more then met all of our needs. Full size refrigerator, smooth glass top stove, microwave-oven combination (state of the art), adequate pots and pans, and a dishwasher with complimentary detergent pods as well a liquid detergent and hand washing soap.
We enjoy purchasing local foods to prepare for dinner and were so pleased to discover two huge indoor markets within easy walking distance. Both markets had many diverse vendors selling fruits, vegetables, fish, meats, cheese, and more. There were also plenty of individual shops selling eggs, pastries, breads, pasta – even “bring your own bottle” wine store with local wines!
We also appreciated the fact that the subway was an easy three block walk. Having used subway systems in Montreal, New York City, and Berlin (just to name a few), we feel that Barcelona’s subway system is one of the best. Clean, user friendly, with frequent trains that arrived on time, the subway got us to all parts of Barcelona – even to the train station where we took a one day trip to Gerona.
The best part about this apartment is that it is in the Garcia Neighborhood. The area has many lovely green spaces, fountains, plazas and churches. We loved walking the area in the evening as families and friends gathered to play, to eat gelato, or simply to talk. There is a strong sense of community here and we were delighted to be a part of it for a short week.
The building is located in the heart of Gracia, an area where tradition and modernity contrasts as in few other places of the city. The number of cultural centers, restaurants, bars and terraces is tremendous. The Mercat de la Llibertat gives you an idea of the daily life of the Mediterranean city and the many ice cream parlors in the neighborhood are charming for 'kids' and seniors. In commercial areas such as the Carrer d'Asturies or Gran de Gracia, you will find everything you need for your stay, such as supermarkets, bakeries and other businesses. From the apartments can reach the famous Parque Güell by Antoni Gaudí within a 15 minutes walk. From the Fontana metro station at a 3 minute distance you will arrive to Plaça de Catalunya and the Ramblas in just a few minutes. The line 39 bus transports you to the beach. At a distance of 10 minutes walk you will get to the luxurious Passeig de Gracia, Barcelona's equivalent of 5th Avenue or the Champs Elysees.
