About Fernando

I am from Barcelona. I love Barcelona, it is the ideal city to live or to visit it. It has a nice, warm and sunny weather, nice people, very good restaurants, it is safe, easy to move around by public transport, many cultural events,...

I love to travel, know about new cultures, meet new people and discover new places.

I like also to host people from all over the world, help them as much as I can to provide them a nice stay in Barcelona.

I know many places in Barcelona that I use to recommend to my clients :)

I manage my own apartments rental agency in Barcelona (ApartEasy) since 2005.

What makes this apartment unique

Location next to Passeig de Gracia

Guestbook comments from the manager

We stayed at an apartment on Eixample in Barcelona near Passeig de Gracia street. The location was great and was right in the middle of the city. We were close to the Diagonal station, line 3 and line 5 of the metro. Ideally located, the apartment is very quiet.The apartment was clean and tidy and well laid out. The staff from Apart Easy is very available and friendly! Stay like that do not change! Great experience, great memories, the people of Barcelona are pleasant and smiling!

Misrepresented

  • 1 out of 5
The apartment is misrepresented. The picture of the balcony shows a view of the street, but that is a different apartment. The actual balcony is in the back adjacent to other balconies in the building behind about 10 feet away. The view is of the various laundry and housecleaning materials and junk the various neighborhoods have stored on their balconies. This ugly view becomes quite tiresome after a few days and can also get very noisy.
The web page also shows a famous Gaudi structure "next to the apartment," although it is 10-15 minutes walk away.
The management company Aparteasy is in the building but unhelpful. They said that the switch from the apartment pictured on the web site was a "mistake," since they don't rent that apartment. They refused to remedy other problems, including a dirty shower, dirty stove top, and inadequate kitchen equipment. They could not or would not explain how to work the washing machine.
The management had offered an airport transfer service, but simply did not show up. This proved fortunate, since taxi service was less expensive.
The TV and Internet are inadequate. The majority of TV channels are in Catalan plus a scattering of mostly minor Spanish channels. There are only 2 international channels, Discovery and Disney. The Wi-Fi is too slow and intermittent for streaming video.
Gracia is a terrific area, but there are lots of apartments for rent there.
You should keep looking.

Owner's Response: Dear David,

First of all, thank you for writing your review.

Regarding the first point, the issue about the pictures, we are very sorry if you have felt mislead. The picture of the street where the apartment is located is totally real but as you say it is not the view from the apartment but shows which street and building is the apartment located.

About the other problems in the apartment you mention we don’t remember to have refused to remedy them. If there were something we could make in that moment to make the property more comfortable we are pretty sure we did our best. The apartment is very nice and correct, but we can understand that not everybody have the same requirements. The TV in Spain works with a system called “TDT” and the TV in the apartment has all the channels that this system allows (some are in Catalan, but most of them are in Spanish). Please notice that in the description of the apartment there is nothing written about having international channels. Concerning the Wifi, thank you for informing about this problem; we are going to make sure to solve it as soon as possible.

The distance from the apartment to the Casa Milà or “La Pedrera” is 5 minutes walking (this is a Google Maps information).

And, eventually, we would like to explain ourselves about the transfer service. During those days our driver had a problem with his car and this is why he could not pick you up in the apartment. If these kind of things happen we always call our clients for let them know. This might have been a last moment problem and we must have not had the enough time to inform you. And about the price usually this private service is more expensive than taxi because it is private service, quicker, avoid uncertainty about price and route and can take up to 7 people with their bags.

We truly apologize if you did not feel good in the apartment, but we have had very nice reviews from other guests and we do not exactly understand your negative comments, specially one month after your stay, so if your experience was that bad we would have appreciated to hear from you before in order to improve our service for the immediate future. Our goal is to improve day by day, so we appreciate very much your review and we are considering it very seriously.

Best regards.

Very nice place near Passeig de Gracia

  • 5 out of 5
Very good place, well located at the extremity of Passeig de Gracia. The metro station Diagonal is 200m far so it is very simple to move into Barcelone from this place, or even on foot. It is a small apartment (perfect for a couple) but fully equipped and very clean.
The agency in charge of the rental has an office at the bottom of the building, so it is very convenient for the check-in and check-out, particularly if you arrive late or if you leave early. And the people dealing with us (during booking process and checking-in/out) are always available and very kind, helping us to make everything easier. I really recommend it

Nice Apartment in Barcelona

  • 4 out of 5
We spent a really good time in this apartment in Barcelona. The apartment is situated in a nice and calme area of the town, near to the next underground station and not too far from the center of Barcelona.

Great Location

  • 3 out of 5
If you stay in Barcelona for one-two days, a hotel probably would be a better solution. For a longer stay, if you are on a budget and not planning to stay in the room most of the time, you might like this small, cute apartment on a nice quiet street which is within walking distance to the famous Gaudi La Pedrera and Casa Batlló buildings, Barcelona Tourist Bus stop, Flamenco show, metro station, etc. The place is clean, has a fully equipped kitchen and the management is right in the building, if you need anything. We really enjoyed the relaxing evening walks around the neighborhood where there are plenty of restaurants and bars with music and outside seating.

We would recommend this apartment, but not for more then two people though.

Budget property but good location

  • 3 out of 5
Our family of three visited amazing city of Barcelona NY 2010. We found the appartment as described but not perfectly clean and with one living creature (mouse). Luis as real toreador demolished it. In short word budget apparment for economy stay. Recommendation to the owner to renew airheating (noizy) and buy some extra kitchen staff (plates, glasses, cups etc.)
Location is really perfect. 100 % local environment. Nice supermarkert round the corner. Magic Passage de Graice 3 min walk. Orange trees on the street. Perfect.

Cosy, quite and perfect location!

  • 5 out of 5
Me and my hsuband spend one week in this apartment last October and we were very happy.
The apartment is like photos and the location is perfect. It is just one minute to Paseigs Gracia, boutiques, Gaudí buildings La Pedrera,.. also there are a lot of restaurants, bars, terraces, groceries around the apartment, perfect location.
When we were there the elevator was in reparation but that wasn't very bad for us.
We recommend this place.
Thank you Luis for your hospitality!
