Overview

Eixample Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Catalan style, close to metro, Espana Square, Pueblo Español, Trade Fair

Fully restored in a modern style, the apartment offers a quality stay to any guests on a business trip or families and friends vacationing together. Versatile in style, the Arenas apartment is ideal to discover the best that Barcelona has to offer as you will quickly find yourself in the heart of the city, engulfed by the magic of Las Ramblas with its street performers, the Ciutat Vella district or the bohemian feel of El Borne.

The apartment has 4 bedrooms: two of them with two individual beds (making four beds in total), one bedroom with a double bed, and one bedroom especially designed for the smaller members of the family with two single bunk beds, for a maximum occupancy of 8 guests.

The open-plan kitchen and sitting room are ideal to relax and disconnect after a long day of sightseeing. The kitchen is modern and has all complements needed to ensure an enjoyable and stress free stay, such as vitro ceramic cooker, oven, fridge and freezer.

The Arenas apartment has two stylish bathrooms, both of them equipped with shower units, wc and washing basin. Fresh towels are provided on arrival.

The Arenas has a lovely balcony that opens up to views of Parc de la Dona i Ocell. The original exposed beams and the typically Mediterranean style windows have been carefully restored in order to maintain its original feel and design.

Its exquisite combination of modern comfort and traditional flavour will ensure an unforgettable Barcelona experience!

It is just 4 metro stops from the city center (Las Ramblas). Also close to the apartment is the convention center of Fira de Montjuich and Pla��a d’Espanya. From here you are just at the feet of the Montjuich Mountain where various sightseeing attractions are located, like Poble Espanyol, the Olympic stadium, the Amusement Park, the National Museum of Catalunya where on weekend nights the guest can watch the famous fountains work.

Terrific Experience

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was exactly as described and perfect for a large group visiting Barcelona. Major train stations were very close (Sants and Plaça d'Espanya) and smaller stop (Tarragona) was right around the corner. Very conveniently located to anything in BCN.

The owner was incredibly helpful in finding local restaurants and shopping. There is a grocery and bakery one half block away, but for groceries, we found the Hipermercat near Sants station cheaper and with more variety.

The streets outside this apartment are quiet and no one in our party felt unsafe.

Staying In Barcelona in Sept 2012

  • 3 of 5

We chose this accommodation because it was recommended by a friend. We spent 4 days here, before we got on the Princess Ruby. Small kitchen and living room which was perfect for us. We were with one other couple. There were 4 bedrooms, one with a balcony. Used the washer and driver. Internet was great. 2 bathrooms with hair blowers (awesome for us girls). Very quiet and quiet. Great price vs booking a hotel room without all these extras. . Close to the metro which we road daily. 10 passes. We bought the senior hop on hop off tour bus for 22E. Just down the street from our apt was an old arena which was converted into a 5 floor shopping centre. (less than 5 minutes to walk) How cool is that. And great restaurants too. Then just up the street from the arena, was the magic fountain, with a wonderful light display which apparently was not working when we were there. But is suppose to be fantastic. Took the metro to La Rambla, which we loved. We would definitely book this place again. Dikieson, Sherwood Park, AB, Canada.

Nice Flat

  • 4 of 5

We were 2 couples with 4 children (3,6,7 and 10 years old) and we spent 5 days in Barcelona. We found this flat easy to access (close to Placa Espanya), easy for food (a small supermarket is at 20 m from the flat). The nearest Metro is Tarragona (100 m from the flat). The owner is very nice and helpful / just one thing maybe to mention : the flat doesn't have a lot of windows so you will always need to use the lights even if it's sunny outside / the rest is ideal !!! Thanks Cesar for your welcome !

Great Home Base

  • 5 of 5

This was our first experience with renting an apartment, rather than staying at a hotel. We had a very positive experience and will definitely try it again. Actually we have already booked a private villa in Grand Cayman for next March!

Thank you to Cesar for the great location! We were far enough away from the noisey tourist area but just a short subway ride away to take advantage of most tourist attractions that Barcelona had to offer.

There was a handy neighbourhood grocery store and the most delicious bakery around the corner. We sure missed the pastries when we arrived home.

The apartment was beautiful and quite comfortable for the 4 adults that were there. There was definitley room to accomodate more than 4. It was very handy to have 2 bathrooms, it made getting ready to leave the apartment so much easier.

We did not actually try any of the neighbourhood restaurants but there were 2-3 place right on the same block as the apartment.

The apartment enjoys the perfect location for your vacation in Barcelona.

It is just 4 metro stops away from the city center (Las Ramblas). Close to the apartment is the convention centre of Fira de Montjuich and Plaça d’Espanya. From here you are just minutes away from Montjuich mountain, where various sightseeing attractions are located, like Poble Espanyol, the Olympic stadium, the Amusement Park, the National Museum of Catalunya where, on weekend nights, you can enjoy the Magic Fountain show.

The nearest metro station is 'Tarragona', which is only 50 meters away from the apartment.

The metro will take you downtown in a matter of minutes so you can explore the Gothic Quarter, Las Ramblas, El Borne, Passeig de Gracia, Catalunya Square, the harbour and so on. Surroundings are very vital, but safe and clean, just beside a big and nice park. Not noisy at all, which makes a great difference if compared to the turistic centre of the city. The street is very quiet.
