Why Karen Olsen chose El Raval

The apartment is located at few steps to Rambla Catalunya and Passeig de Gracia in Eixample quarter / City center.

Passeig de Gràcia is part of the 5 km shopping line and is an important road in Barcelona.

Here you will find most of Barcelona's international designer shops such as Chanel, Gucci, Valentino or Hermes. Also along this road are La Pedrera and Casa Batlló, two of Gaudí's characteristically dreamlike buildings.

Eixample is a safe and residential part of the city but there is also a vibrant nightlife and a thriving café culture. Eixample is a beautiful ba

What makes this apartment unique

perfect weekend, thank you

I couldn't imagine a better location for visiting the city with friends! With the metro one block away, a short walk to La Rambla or Passeig de Gracia, the city is right at your doorstep in this apartment! The staff were very flexible with check-in and check-out since there were no reservations immediately before and after us, and we really appreciated this! We loved the original floor tiles and feel of the place and there are lots of restaurants and markets right on the block. I would highly recommend this apartment.

This is the best place that I have ever stayed at. Our group really liked the design of the place. If you want to feel special while in Barcelona then this is the right place. We spent way more time in our apartment than usual because it was such a nice place to be in. The host provided lot of useful info. Only thing is I wish is that we could have stayed longer. Thanks!!
