A stylish, quiet and luxurious apartment in the heart of Barcelona.
This stylishly designed Barcelona apartment is extremely quiet for its central location on Paseo de Gracia, as it is to the back of the building with no other constructions to obstruct the light coming through the large windows. This refurbished building, in the very heart of Barcelona's city center, has two fully renovated elevators to take you from the large and spacious entrance to the second floor where the apartment is located. With the best shops in Barcelona, bars, clubs and hundreds of restaurants right on the doorstep of the apartment, you do not need to go far to enjoy all that the old town of Barcelona has to offer. A holiday stay at this convenient accommodation will make your adventures around Barcelona easy to plan.
The area surrounding the apartment:
The Monet II apartment is located right in the middle of Barcelona city only 50 yards from Plaça Catalunya and 100 from Las Ramblas, making it accessible to all areas of interest in Barcelona such as the Gothic Quarter and the very trendy El Borne. A short walk from the apartment you will find the superb food and produce market called La Boqueria on Las Ramblas, an absolute must for any visitor to Barcelona. The apartment offers a quiet reprive from the bustling and very busy Las Ramblas but is close enough for guests to walk two, three minutes to where the action is.
Walk out the front door of the apartment building and you have a shopping experience just waiting to happen all around you. Paseo de Gracia alone will keep you busy for hours. Walk to Portal d'Angel about one minute from your front door and continue down to Portaferrisa where there are more stores for you to explore. A short five minute walk will take you into El Borne, one of Barcelona's oldest neighbourhoods, an intricate maze of plaças and squares all interconnected by narrow, medieval streets where you will find lots of trendy boutiques and great bars, cafés and restaurants. Another option for the visitor staying at this great Barcelona apartment is to visit the Gothic quarter situated right in the heart of the old town, about a five minutes' walk from your front door. This is the area that fell within the medieval walls and, until 150 years ago, made up the entire city of Barcelona. The area is a body of interconnecting narrow and cobble stoned streets where you can potter around for hours and explore the shops and restaurants. Las Ramblas is another must for the visitor in Barcelona where the famous 'La Boqueria' market is, a two minuts' stroll to Las Ramblas from your front door, where you will be amused and entertained by all the street acts as you make your way down to the market.
As you can see, should you choose to stay at the Monet II apartment during your visit to Barcelona, you will literaly find yourself in the heart of Barcelona's Ciutat Vella.

The only good thing I can say about this property is that the location was great.
Washer/dryer did not work and directions in the apartment for were a different model. Electrical switches were a guessing game as to which one worked for which appliance/light/shade. The design of the downstairs shower is inefficient and leads to flooding. Beds were terribly uncomfortable and no extra bed linens were available.
Friendly Rentals did the best they could to try to rectify the situations but overall we were disappointed with the entire experience.
The location was perfect for walking everywhere and there was the convenience of the Metro station 20 metres from the front door. We loved the space in the apartment, the cleanliness, the check-in service and the bed. How could they make it perfect? Just fix the little leak in the shower basin and we would rate it a 5 star.
