Why Gonzalo Casino Rubio chose Gracia

The apartment was formerly a painter workshop, an ideal place for its spacious rooms, its tranquillity and privileged light both mornings and afternoons. Hence its name: Atelier Joanic.

What makes this apartment unique

Quite (a Zen touch say some guests), bright and very well located apartment. With the metro (line 4) just below the property and the possibility of walking to the city center and to major tourist attractions (Parc Guell, Sagrada Familia, Gaudi Pedrera). And very spacious: more than 70 square meters.

Lovely apartment.

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is spacious, sunny, and you will want to stay in instead of sightseeing. They must have an amazing cleaning lady, because the apartment was immaculate and organized. The comforters are nice and fluffy. The metro station is conveniently located outside the building. We walked to Sagrada Familia and Park Guell. Gonzalo emailed me recommendations prior to arrival. Then he helped book a taxi to the airport because he's such a nice guy. The neighborhood is quiet. You will love it here.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for your sympathy and your kind comment. I will tell the cleaning lady that you found the apartment "immaculate and organized". I love that you say "you will want to stay in instead of sightseeing", but walking around Barcelona is worth!

Wonderful stay here

  • 5 of 5

Our family- two of us and one five year old- had a wonderful stay here. Gonzalo was kind and thoughtful. The apartment was immaculate and relaxing. It was the perfect place to come back to after a day of sightseeing. The area couldn't have been better- peaceful, well located near metro, walking distance to lots of things with great restaurants and shops. Thank you for a great stay!

Perfect place to stay when visiting Barcelona!

  • 5 of 5

Great location from which to visit the sites - so conveniently located with the Metro just steps from the door. Nice neighborhood with everything you could need. Spacious, well equipped apartment. Gonzalo was an excellent host and easy to communicate with. We spent a week here and loved it! Highly recommended.

Great location, fantastic apartment

  • 5 of 5

Our 6 days in Barcelona were fabulous. The location of Gonzalo's apt was perfect. We kept the rental car in the car park across the street and accessed the metro just steps from his front door. There were several markets and restaurants close by. It was an easy 15 minute walk to Familia Sagrada and the Hop on Hop off bus. His apartment was very cozy with a well equipped kitchen and clothes washer. Both rooms were quite large and the balcony afforded a lovely view of the city. It is a very secure building with a small but good elevator. We would definitely stay here again.

Perfect Location, Roomy Apartment and Great Owner

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four (with two teen boys) stayed in this apartment for 3 nights in April. The place is exactly the same as shown in the pictures, spacious, simply artistic, clean and of everything we needed. The balcony has a pleasant view of the street. The subway stop is in front of the building which we used a lot. The apartment is on the top floor of the building but the small elevator is fine to move luggages up and down. The neighbor's noise of a college student's party on Friday night was obvious but it stopped after 1am so we were fine. The owner is super nice. Our booking online was easy, and the response was on time and clear. The daughter met us in the apartment and provided lots of tips such as which bakery or restaurant to go and where to visit. She also helped us call the cab (as we didn't have a workable phone in Spain) the morning we were leaving. We enjoyed our visit in Barcelona very much thanks to her and this place. I would recommend this place to my friends.

Lots of Light, Perfect Location!

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of four (with a 7 and 9 year old), and this was our first trip to Barcelona. The host was wonderful and communication was perfect! He met us early to check in and gave us detailed instructions on everything, along with tips for places to eat. The apartment is bright and airy and the kitchen is well equipped. For the week we were there, it felt like home. I loved the location because the Metro is right downstairs. You can get anywhere in Barcelona in about 20 minutes from that Metro station. The parking is also right down the street, so we were able to leave our car for the week (since this was just one stop on our trip). We took it out one day for a trip to Tossa de Mar and went back in with no extra fees. The apartment is walking distance from Sagrada Familia and the neighborhood has great restaurants and bakeries. Try Ugarit, right across from the park, it is excellent! Also within walking distance is a Mercado, with fresh fruits, meats, etc. There is a supermarket a block from the apartment as well. Though the apartment only has a small bathroom and the one bedroom, the pull out couch in the living room was very, very comfortable and the layout of the apartment makes it very roomy - we did not feel crowded at all. Additionally, there is a small balcony outside the master bedroom. I would highly recommend this apartment to anyone visiting Barcelona for the first time!
