Un peu défraîchi...

  • 3 of 5

Le logement est très bien situé, sur une rue passante mais agréable. On s'y trouve à distance de marche de tout ce qu'un touriste veut voir, à Barcelone. Un marché à quelques pas. Des restaurants tout autour.

Plusieurs pièces, très bien éclairées. Une description qui est en tous points conforme à celle qui figure sur le site. Il faut passer par la 4e chambre pour se rendre dans la chambre principale, ce qui peut être un inconvénient pour certains.

Très propre à notre arrivée. Une cuisine assez bien équipée. De vieilles serviettes, en nombre limité (on nous en a rapporté lorsque nous l'avons demandé). Pas de couvertures.

Mais surtout, le tout est un peu défraîchi. Les salles de bain ont vieilli. La peinture a besoin d'être refaite. Les divans et les tapis sont tachés.

Great location but low quality rental and service

  • 3 of 5

As an American family living in Europe with 2 small children and a 3rd on the way, we often stay in VRBO’s when we travel. I was a bit skeptical about this rental because I could not find many reviews. While this rental had some pros, it had many more cons. Unfortunately, we would not stay in this unit again.


This unit was actually a 4 bedroom, not a 3 as advertised which worked out well for the 2 families staying.

Spacious-nice living/eating area with extra sitting space.

Great location

Lift in the building

Washer and dryer in unit


Overall, it did not seem very clean. There was a huge brown stain on the wall as you enter the hallway. Not pleasant to a client.

They make a point to tell you about the noise violation yet every night we heard people talking, walking, dogs barking etc. We could easily oblige as we have small children but you are warned to not make noise between 10pm-8am yet others do.

Don’t expect good internet. You needed to try a new connection in each room you were in.

Bathrooms: We realize this is an older building but things just need to be upgraded.

Hot water runs out quickly.

We what’s-ap'd the owners and e-mailed on the second day there to come and fix the shower wand. The attachment that holds it to the wall was broken so you were left with a shower wand you had to hold in order to rinse yourself. Not easy for a 7+ month pregnant lady. They did not respond until day 5 and never fixed the issue.

Some shelves would be helpful to put your toothbrush/hair brush etc.

Add a trash can to the smaller bathroom!


Just outdated and cheap supplies/appliances etc. When you turned the faucet on the water would come splashing out all over the place and make a loud noise.

The dishwasher top rack was broken and would fall so we could not place any dishes on it.

Overall just not satisfied with this rental.

Grande Valencia 1 - Barcelona Beautiful Old World Charm

  • 5 of 5

What a fantastic property just 3 blocks from the Sagrada de familia and maybe a 20 minute walk to the Gothic Quarter. We were a group of 6 and had so much room to sleep, eat, and enjoy each others company. The property owners were very helpful at check in, and were able to help us with all our questions. Taxis in Barcelona are very affordable with 4 of us splitting 10 euros or less for most trips.

Also, the people who run the Negre apartments live right there and know the best restaurants, including our new favorite A' Gianni a little Italian pizza place just a few doors away. We would highly recommend this property to our closest friends.

The Grand Apartment Calle Valencia, Barcelona

  • 5 of 5

The Grand Apartment in Barcelona is very spacious, clean, characteristic, quiet, and well-located. We are a family of 6, and had two extra bedrooms that we did not use. We stayed 8 nights. You can easily walk to La Sagrada Familia (10 minutes), and even to Las Ramblas (30 min), the beaches (40 min), and the gothic district (20 min). Regardless of where you go, there are beautiful buildings, great pedestrian walkways, and pleasant breezes. Taxi's are plentiful, and cost 4 to 7 euros to most anywhere. The city tour bus is well recommended. Marcela is a wonderful host, and is very helpful. You will definitely enjoy your stay in this wonderful apartment, and beautiful city.
