Why Raul Duran chose Barcelona City

The location of the apartment is fantastic to visit and enjoy Barcelona, and after that, you can have a comforting rest with your children or your partner because it´s incredibly quiet.

What makes this apartment unique

It is a quiet sunny place in the city center. It´s very well communicated and you can walk to the main sights in town. There are a lot of a good restaurants, markets and supermarkets if you prefer to cook at home.

Barcelona Fair is close to the apartment.

It takes only 15 minutes to the airport by taxi or airport bus, and 5 minutes to Sants station where you can take the High-Speed Train (AVE) and go to Madrid in two and a half hours.

Other important thing is that we live in the same building, so we can help you on anything that you need quickly, so very personalized attention.

Perfect rental experience

  • 5 of 5

I cannot imagine a more ideal rental experience!

Raul was the most extraordinary host you could imagine. He was very responsive and helpful prior to our arrival. He picked us up at the airport, gave us a driving tour of the area, had a beautiful fruit & wine welcome basket waiting for us at the apartment, and took his time making sure we were settled and recommending places in the area for us to visit. On top of all of this he made sure he had a car seat for transporting our young daughter from the airport, had a stroller ready for her to use, and there was a beautifully wrapped package with a doll waiting for her at the apartment. He had stocked the kitchen with far more than the basics of salt, pepper, and coffee. He also had milk, juice, butter, jam, coke, and some beer! I could go on about the many ways he took care of us!

The property itself was wonderful! The beds were comfortable, the shower was fantastic with great water pressure and plenty of hot water, the kitchen is small but efficient, and everything was clean.

To top it all off it's ideally situated with very easy access to the Metro for visiting all of the sights of Barcelona. It was so nice to have a quiet neighborhood to come home to after a long day of sightseeing. All of the restaurants we tried in the area were delicious and much more reasonably priced by not being in the heart of the tourist areas. (My husband highly recommends the chocolate croissants at the bakery across the street!)

I can't recommend this property highly enough!

Perfect apartment and location with the most incredible hosts!

  • 5 of 5

My daughter and I spent 2 weeks at this wonderful apartment and can't imagine a more perfect location or more amazingly gracious and attentive hosts than Raul and Carmen. Raul not only responded quickly and helpfully to any questions prior to our arrival, but picked us up at the airport (and drove us for return flight!) gave us a tour of the area and helped us with bus and metro information to navigate the city. The apartment is very close to bus stops, metro, a delicious bakery, market and many restaurants! Raul and Carmen assisted us also with purchasing and printing tickets to attractions, a cooking class, restaurant suggestions and even helped in purchasing a suitcase online when my daughters was destroyed by the airline. They were so attentive and helpful it's hard to express our gratitude and appreciation for all they did for us. We arrived the day before the attack on Barcelona..a terrible event. We were unaware of the event until we received a text from Raul asking where we were and notifying us of it. We were a bit anxious about this event, and what it may mean.. but they were wonderful in keeping us aware of issues (transportation changes, security concerns etc) because of our inability to understand news broadcasts and the like. The tragic event stalled much of the activity that day, but the amazing people of Barcelona refused to let it control them..the day after all transport and activity resumed as normal.

We both loved Barcelona, our time exploring the city, enjoying the amazing architecture, the wonderful seafood..but all will be forever linked with our new and wonderful friends Raul and Carmen. Thank you for all you did for us! We hope to see you again❤️Marjorie and Brook from Wisconsin USA

Above and Beyond!

  • 5 of 5

We knew our stay in Barcelona would be a great experience well before we arrived. Raul and Carmen reached out to us months before our stay, offering to pick us up at the airport. Although we didn't need the ride, offers continued coming in to help in any way needed.

Upon arrival, Raul took time showing us around the apartment, which we found very clean and well-equipped. Additionally, little extras, like assortments of teas, biscuits, butter, jellies, beverages, toiletries, laundry and dishwashing supplies, were everywhere. Books for reading, tourism brochures, and maps were also present. The "icing on the cake" was a large basket of fresh fruit with a bottle of Spanish wine.

Thank you, Raul and Carmen, for a wonderful week!

Fabulous Stay In Barcelona

  • 5 of 5

Our first trip to Spain and we fell in love with Barcelona. Raul is a jewel. He picked us up from the train station, took us on a tour of the city, provided us with detailed maps with bus stops and suggestions of where to go and what to see.

The apartment was just perfect for the four of us. There was a fabulous fruit/wine basket waiting for us plus a refrigerator stocked with beer, juice, cold drinks, water and other amenities. The rooftop terrace was especially nice....a great place to relax after a day of enjoying Barcelona.

I would stay here again in a heartbeat.

Felt at home immediately

  • 5 of 5

Raul greeted us at the train station like a long lost cousin. He seemed as excited as we four adults as he drove us around Barcelona pointing out not-to-be missed sights and acclimating us to his Eixample neighborhood. Waiting for us in the charming apartment were a huge fruit basket with wine, well stocked fridge and cupboards. He spent time with us indicating on maps the best neighborhood markets, restaurants and metro/bus stops to take us to each of our main destinations. All of his recommendations were super. Raul and Carmen have done everything to make their guests comfortable. Comfy beds, lots of tour books and maps, fully equipped kitchen. Sitting on the 5th floor terrace with our coffee in the mornings we enjoyed the aromas from the little bakery across the street. Needless to say, we were frequent visitors there as well as at the nearby market. Hopping the metro based on his advice we felt like natives, quickly getting around town. Returning home in the evenings we were glad to leave the crowds of the Gothic Quarter as we ambled along "our" neighborhood streets picking up fruit, bread, cheese and wine from the local shops. We enjoyed sunsets and stars in the evenings on the terrace feeling like real Catalans. We were even able to use the clothes washer and hang the laundry on the terrace. Saying goodbye to Raul at the airport after our week in Barcelona was hard. He made our visit so very special (and easy) and we made a new dear friend.
