The apartment is located on Avinguda Diagonal 405, between Balmes and Rambla de Catalunya, just a few minutes away from Passeig de Gracia - where some of the most emblematic Modernist architectural works, such as Gaudi's Casa Milà (“La Pedrera”) and Casa Batlló, can be found.

It provides a perfect base to visit and explore the city, ideally connected with buses stopping right in front of the building (including Barcelona City Tours buses) and an underground station (Metro Diagonal) a 5-minute walk away.

The apartment is part of a listed building named “Casa Eduardo Puig” (after the Spanish tycoon that build it for him and his family in the beginning of the 20th century; Mr Puig occupied the first floor, and his children the remaining five floors). The apartment we are offering is located on the 4rth floor, overlooking the neighbourhood; we also have a 65m2, one-bedroom apartment on the first floor of same building available for rental.

There is a concierge in the building Monday to Friday from 09:00 to 14:00 and from 16:00 to 20:00, who can collect any deliveries while you are away.

As Good as it Gets

  • 5 of 5

We still have another night but I am sure nothing will change my mind. Just a great apartment!

Location just far enough away from the tourist area to be relaxing and yet an easy walk to many of the High Spots in Barcelona. Metro is close of some of the further attraction as are buses.

Eduardo arranged pick up at airport and excellent car and driver at a reasonable price.

WiFi is super fast and the apartment is sticked with the essentials like Toilet paper and soap etc.

Apartment was very clean and the bathrooms were excellent for water pressure and ease of controls.

A separate washer and dryer is great for leaving with all clean clothes as we go to Lisbon.

Eduardo is a Joy to deal with, just a super nice guy but don't lose his keys. (inside joke)

Do not hesitate . This apartment is as good as the photos and description!!

Great apartment. Just as advertised.

  • 5 of 5

My husband, myself and 3 adult children just returned from a wonderful week in Barcelona. This is a lovely, clean apartment, in a great area. It is convenient to the metro, and has easy access to tourist sights. The sofas in the living area are large, and create plenty of seating. Beds are comfortable; and the kitchen has pans and appliances to make you feel at home. The greatest attribute however is Ed. He met us at the door, and gave us a little introduction to the city and sights. He was extremely helpful throughout the experience. I highly recommend this property.

Excellent

  • 5 of 5

A lovely apartment, centrally located in Barcelona within easy walking distance of much of the city and its sights and attractions.

The apartment is clean, well furnished and has all amenities, as well as shops, cafes restaurants etc close by.

The proprietor is very friendly and helpful, giving us great advice and recommendations on places to visit, best way to get there, location of shops and the best way to get to the major attractions.

Would recommend this apartment and location to anyone visiting the city.

There was a deposit for breakages etc, which we agreed by mutual convenience to arrange by Paypal and which was promptly returned. This saved us dipping into our holiday fund.

Gute , zentrale und sichere Lage

  • 4 of 5

Wir 4 verbrachten eine tolle Woche in Barcelona. Die Wohnung liegt optimal, um viele Sehenswürdigkeiten der Stadt zu Fuß zu erkunden. Die Wohnung ist sauber, gut ausgestattet und entspricht den Bilder, alles verlief problemlos, Ed ist freundlich und hilfsbereit. Besonders schön ist der verglaste Essbereich und die Terrasse. Das dritte Zimmer ist klein (ohne Schrank) und wurde von uns als Kofferzimmer benutzt.Hilfreich hätten wir in den Schlafzimmern noch einen Stuhl als Ablagemöglichkeit gefunden. Absolut empfehlenswert ist die deutschsprachige Führung in der Sagrada Familia, die man schon von Deutschland aus buchen kann.

Wir können die Wohnung sehr empfehlen und denken gerne an unseren Aufenthalt zurück.

Great, centrally located and quiet

  • 5 of 5

Ed was a pleasure to work with. He met us at the apt. very late on our arrival night and took the time to explain everything, including recommendations for local eateries. The apt. was comfortable, with plenty of room and a wonderful terrace where we sipped wine every night. Nice, older building that was incredible quiet. In the 3 days we were there, we only saw one other resident. It is safe, with a doorman at the front (he could use some people skills, however). I would definitely recommend this apt., and wouldn't hesitate to stay there again.

Comfortable, spotless and great location!

  • 5 of 5

Listing description very accurate. The apartment was spotless and extremely comfortable, especially the beds! Eduardo is a very gracious and helpful friendly man. I recommend this apartment to anyone traveling to Barcelona! Rick Steves' pocket Barcelona was one of the books we purchased and that truly helped us get to see everything we possibly could in 3 days. Definitely plan out your visit before you arrive. Check out the attractions beforehand on the internet and take their recommendations as far as buying tickets in advance. Enjoy! What a beautiful country! Kitty from NH
