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 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.

Wow, just Wow!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in Barcelona was excellent and it was make better by Ed's place. Everything was as describes, or better than we expected. The location was perfect for us as we enjoyed walking most places. The transit was close by as was the Hop on Hop off bus. I stopped just around the corner.

Ed was very informative about where to go and how to get there.

Would definitely consider staying at Ed's place again if there were more than the two of us again. Lots of room for 4 and doable for more as there were 3 bedrooms.

Thanks again Ed, for making our vacation stay at your rental memorable, in a good way.

Nice apartment, well located and convenient to the metro. Good for families as well as couples. One bedroom rather small but still functional.

Barcelona city apartment

  • 5 of 5

This apartment in the heart of Barcelona worked out great for us, a party of four adults. The owner Eduardo was extremely responsive during the booking process. He booked our taxi from the airport (and return), met us promptly when we arrived and was very helpful in orienting us to the city sights and the local neighborhood. The apartment was very spacious, clean and comfortable for 4 adults. We had only one minor glitch (broker coffee maker), which Eduardo addressed quickly the next morning. The apartment is centrally located and we found it easy to access all parts of the city (we mostly walked everywhere). Overall, we would highly recommended Eduardo's property if you are thinking of visiting this lovely city.

City Haven

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was perfect for us. It was very clean and was in a very safe convenient area. Eduardo arranged for a taxi to and from the airport which made travel less stressful. There were 2 elevators, one of which was an old fashioned one with lots of character. I highly recommend this apartment!

Stunning apartment, great location, Ed was a fabulous host.

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was absolutely stunning, 3 large bedrooms, all with beautiful comfy beds, a huge living area and lovely balcony. The apartment and kitchen was kitted out with everything you could possibly need and was a short walk to the metro. Ed met us on arrival at the apartment and showed us round, plus took the time to go through a local map with us and show us areas of interest. There are lovely restaurants, bars, bakers and shops close by. I would definitely stay here again and highly recommend this apartment to anyone looking for a lovely place to stay during their visit.
