Why Frédéric chose El Camp de l'Arpa del Clot

The living room has a sofa-bed so up to 6 guests can stay at a time. There is also a self-catering kitchen with all the dishware you might need as well as an oven-microwave, coffee machine, toaster, etc. The apartment also has a washer and dryer. and will also have access to a high speed Wi-Fi internet connection and satellite television. The sunny terrace has a table and chairs so you can make your own breakfast, or perhaps dinner, and enjoy eating outside on one of Barcelona’ warm summer nights.
What makes this Apartment unique
The apartment is located in a quieter area of the city and most of the people on the street are locals who live in the neighborhood. Nearby you can easily reach 2 of Barcelona’s UNESCO World Heritage Sites, the Sagrada Familia Cathedral and the Sant Pau Hospital modernist building complex, which has a restaurant with a terrace where you can go during the summer and winter months to have breakfast, lunch or dinner. The Sagrada familia area is a peaceful and safe neighborhood and it has plenty of shops, restaurants, bars with outdoor terraces, etc. There are also two metro lines nearby and more than 10 buses that you can catch to visit other areas of Barcelona. In the same building as the Barcelona apartment rental you will find our office which is open from 9:00 am to 6:00 pm every day of the week so we can help you or give you advice on anything you might need to know during your stay in our city.

Ideal apartment for us, a mature couple spending a week exploring Barcelona. Bright, spacious apartment with every facility we needed, large sunny terrace with shade when required. Spacious quiet bedroom at the rear with a small terrace. Was everything we looked for in a holiday apartment.
Wonderful gem in Barcelona
There are many positive things to say about our stay. Bernardo was there when we arrive and gave us the tour. The directions from the airport to the apartment were super accurate - we didn't get even a tiny bit lost. Bernardo was super helpful in identifying restaurants and giving us a sense of the neighborhood. And the apartment was PERFECT! It was very clean and sunny as advertised. There are two balcony/decks -one off the kitchen and one off the back bedroom. The kitchen had all the basics including a coffee machine. And there was a washer/dryer.
My daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The apartment is perfectly located - you can walk, catch a bus or the metro or a cab. All very easily. We would definitely go back and in fact I have recommended it to my Mom who is traveling to Barcelona in the fall.
Beautiful sunny apartment in a convenient location!
Recently returned from a 6 day stay in Barcelona and couldn't agree more with the other reviews that were left on this apartment. Everything was super convenient when it came to checking in and the owners were very friendly and helpful during our stay. They were even gracious enough to call us a cab to the airport on our final day.
The apartment is in more a quiet neighborhood, so if you are looking for lively nightlife this may not be the best location, however, don't that that deter you - the location is super close the metro and within walking distance to a lot of Barcelona's great attractions! There is a tiny grocery store across the street to purchase any food/water/items you may need to make you feel more at home. The apartment was super clean as well, and the beds/linens comfortable.
The bedroom with the twin beds was a little small - but since the most time we spent in there was sleeping we did not mind at all. The only reason I did not give 5 stars is that the walls are VERY thin. If you are a light sleeper make sure to bring earplugs or noise cancelling headphones. We heard EVERYTHING going on above us - from people walking, to talking loudly and everything in between.
Other than that minor thing - everything else about the apartment was great! Also I have stayed in VRBO's before that have provided things like shampoo, sugar etc. This apartment did not have that, but as mentioned there is a grocery store super close if any items are needed. Also a major plus was the elevator! It is my understanding that not many buildings have this feature!
Overall, we had a fantastic stay here and would definitely recommend to anyone as well as possibly staying here again myself!
Thank you for your review and your rating. We very much appreciate your opinion and will take into considerations all of your remarks, but we would like to point out a few things for future readers to know. The apartment is on the Attic floor and there is only one apartment per floor, so no immediate neighbors next to it. There is a smaller apartment above it, which is actually a studio for vacation rentals (2 guests only). After reading your comment, I assume that the guests above you were louder than usual and we apologise for this inconvenience. Parties and loud noises are forbidden after 10pm in the building and I could have intervened if you would have mentioned this to us during your stay. Another thing to note is that your apartment did have shower gel and shampoo (all-in-one), since we put one in each bathroom. Finally, we are currently providing basic condiments and sugar to all our guests and we thank you for helping us improve our service. Kind regards.
Great balconies, comfortable space, clean and bright!
We enjoyed our visit to Barcelona and this apartment was very well located to catch subways, buses and to eat some fantastic bakery items. He had a very very nice visit thank you!
The apartment is lovely!
It’s close to the metro but we walked to most places. The apartment is well furnished, spacious, comfortable. The air conditioner in the living room did not work very well, the air conditioner in the bedroom was excellent. The owner was very helpful. I would stay again.
Thank you very much for reviewing your stay with us. I am really sorry that the A/C in the living room didn’t work properly while you were here and would simply like to let you and all readers know that we regularly schedule maintenance for all our devices. Both A/Cs in the apartment are currently working properly and we are very reactive to any malfunction, so we always encourage our guests to contact us or pass by our office (located in the same building) if there is any problem or if they need any kind of assistance. Best regards.
Beautiful apartment convenient location
Really nice top floor apartment with sunny balcony and convenient location a few minutes walk to the Sagrada Familia and also the old hospital which was fascinating. Frédéric the manager was extremely helpful, everything was great.
Located in the EIXAMPLE neighborhood, just a 10-minute walk from the famous church of the SAGRADA FAMILIA, the modernist masterpiece by Gaudi and the most visited monument in Barcelona, and close to the HOSPITAL SANT PAU, a complex of modernist buildings. Both monuments were declared UNESCO World Heritage Sites. At the church of the Sagrada Familia you will find the TOURIST BUS stop, which will take you to see the major tourist attractions of the city. It is a safe and bustling area with restaurants, café terraces and small shops. At night it becomes a pleasant family neighborhood perfect for taking time to relax.
The public transportation in the area is excellent with numerous bus stops and 2 metro lines. The metro line nº5 (Station `Sant Pau I Dos de Maig`) is only a 2-minute walk away. You can reach the Passeig de Gracia (one of the main shopping streets that leads to downtown) in just 10 minutes. On the metro line nº2 (Station `Encants`), only a 5-minute walk away, you can go directly to Plaza Catalunya (main square in downtown Barcelona) and the Ramblas (main street downtown in the Gothic Quarter) in 12-15 minutes. These excellent public transportation options, that are easily accessible from the apartment, allow you to reach the main points of interest of the city of Barcelona in just a few minutes.
