Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday apartment in L'Antiga Esquerra de l'Eixample

2 Bedrooms sleeps up-to-6

This spacious, bright, two bedroom apartment is situated in central Barcelona, just a short walk from Placa de Catalunya and Las Ramblas.

It is an ideal situation (for short or long stays) to see all the wonderful attractions that Barcelona has to offer.

The apartment is located in a splendid Modernist building on c/ Muntaner in L’Eixample district. The building includes marble entrance hall, elevator and roof terrace. It is beside Passeig de Gracia which is the main designer shopping street in the city. Restaurants, shops, boulangerie, supermarket and cafes are available right outside your door.

This 1st floor apartment retains all the original period features including high-corniced ceilings, wooden floor and traditional shuttered windows. Yet it is also fitted out with modern furniture, satellite TV, radio, CD, DVD (incl. DVD collection), washing machine, dishwasher, heating, air-conditioning etc.

The Eixample area is the main shopping district in Barcelona centring around the boulevards of Passig de Gracia and Rambla be Catalunya, which lead onto Placa de Catalunya. This area features all the best restaurants, cafes, museums, galleries and shops.

Because it is located at the lower end of c/ Muntaner it is almost the perfect location for visiting Barcelona. It is right in the middle of the upmarket shopping and restaurant area yet still very close to the heart of La Ramblas and Gothic Quarter with its narrow streets, great atmosphere and exuberant nightlife.

It has parking nearby and the local metro station at Passeig de Gracia is a central hub station for the entire city.

There are a number of excellent city beaches available and, of course, the Costa Brava beaches such as Sitges (30 mins) are located all along the coast.

Great location, lovely apartment

  • 4 out of 5
  • Review Submitted: 05-Nov-2012
  • Date of Stay: Oct 2012
I really liked this apartment!

I stayed here with my Mother, Aunt and teenage daughter for a week long stay in Barcelona at the end of October. The property was clean and tidy on arrival, it had more than enough linen and towels and the kitchen was well stocked with utensils and the like.

The apartment boasts 'Freesat' for British telly and has a great collection of DVD's both of which were perfect for crashing in front of after a full day of sightseeing and chilling before taking to the comfy beds.

The apartment is in a great location, it's central without being right on top of the main tourist area - just a 5-8 minute walk to Universitat Metro station with a direct line to the Sagrada Familia and just 10-15 minute walk to Placa Catalunya and the top of La Rambla. Yes, it can be a little noisy from road noise in the sitting room and front bedroom but, it is a city centre!

There is a bakery downstairs for fresh bread (and pastries!) and a bomboneria across the road for those with a sweet tooth.

The owner, Shane, answered my many emails very quickly and was friendly to deal with and I would definately recommend this apartment to friends and family. I hope to stay here on my next visit to Barcelona

Great Holiday - Fab apartment

  • Review Submitted: 21-Aug-2012

We had a fantastic stay in Barcelona in Aug and really enjoyed staying in this pretty apartment.

It was in a great position, with good-sized rooms, very light and airy and the living room had air-conditioning- essential in the hot weather we had. The kitchen was well fitted out and the bathroom was large and and the whole place was comfortable and had a lot of character with some really nice architectural details and plenty of space for us and our teenage son. TV and access to British Freeview channels was a bonus with plenty of dvd's also provided.

The location is great - in an attractive city centre neighbourhood, with good transport links especially to the metro and not too far from the main tourist attractions of the city centre- especially the Ramblas.

Plenty of cafe bars, restuarants and shops right outside and lining the roads around the apartment with some local supermarkets close by.

The only real issue we had was possibly the amount of noise late of an evening and early morning. Talk about the city that never sleeps!

Communication with the renter/owner was very good. Everything specified on the site by him was there on arrival. The flat was lovely and clean. we had plenty of towels, bedding etc with clear contact info and spare keys. We would definitely recommend this flat to friends and family for a great stay in a great part of the city.

Great Location

  • Review Submitted: 11-Nov-2011

We had an excellent visit to beautiful Barcelona in Oct and really enjoyed staying in this lovely apartment.

We found it to be superbly positioned, with good-sized and airy rooms and all the accessories required for a perfect stay. The kitchen is very well fitted out, the bathroom spacious and the whole place is bright and cheery. The lounge is very comfortable, as are the bedrooms. It accommodated the five of us with no problem.

Its location is perfect - in an attractive city centre neighbourhood, yet only a few minutes walk to public transport and the tourist sights. It was clean and well presented on our arrival.

The apartment has plenty of great restaurants, shops and tapa bars right outside the front door. It is very close (but not too close!) to the Ramblas.

The widescreen TV, satellite channels and large selection of DVDs was an added bonus.

We had a fabulous stay and loved the place.

great for a city centre location

  • 4 out of 5
  • Review Submitted: 11-Oct-2011
  • Date of Stay: Oct 2011
Myself and two friends stayed for 4 nights for conference. The apartment was clean and well-equipped. The decor is probably a little dated but in good condition. The double bed in the back bedroom was quite uncomfortable (for me- I have a bad back), but the sofa bed and singles were fine. There was a lot of traffic noise pretty much all night in the front bedroom, but this is because it is in the heart of the city. It was a great location for getting about and there was plenty of bars, shops etc on our doorstep. There was an issue with the toilet flush, but the owner got this sorted really quickly. I would recommend this for a friends holiday/mini break as its great for going out. I wouldn't probably recommend for small children as it is so urban.

The apartment building is located at the junction between Muntaner and Consell de Cent, close to the University and Passig de Gracia. It is adjacent to La Ramblas (7 min walk), the port, Gothic quarter, art galleries and beaches.

It is the best location in the city because it is beside most of the attractions as well as the best shops and restaurants.

It is very close to the busy Ramblas but not too close (as the Ramblas can be very lively at night.).
