About Fidel Peral Pelaez

My wife is from Granada, South of Spain, I am from Asturias, North of Spain. We live in Barcelona a very nice city located about the same distance from both places. We have two children. My wife is a teacher and I am an air traffic controller. I like cycling on the countryside. We love traveling around the world.

Fidel Peral Pelaez purchased this apartment in 2010

Why Fidel Peral Pelaez chose L'Esquerra de l'Eixample

It was my first house in Barcelona where I was very happy, I started to know Barcelona from there. I think it's a really good apartment from where my customers can go easily to the main city sites due to it's adequate central location.

What makes this apartment unique

It is a quiet place in the middle of Barcelona. It's very well communicated and you can walk to the main places. It's very close to the Barcelona's fair. There's a quality restaurant crossing the street, but there are many more recommended restaurants around. If you like cooking there's the Ninot market and specials shops like Jamonísimo near by. It takes only 15 minutes to the airport by a taxi or an airport bus.

Clean, safe and convenient

  • 4 of 5

Although we were only at this place for three days, the apartment is exactly as described. This charming flat is centrally located in a residential neighborhood that is always within a 10 minute walk to an adventure no matter which direction you head out. The rooftop deck space more than makes up for the cozy living spaces inside. It wasn't an issue since we came to Barcelona to explore the city not to stay inside an apartment rental. To that end, this place will meet most of your expectations. I would highly recommend staying here especially since Fidel is a pleasant person to deal with . The only reason I'm giving it 4 stars is because it was lacking the creature comforts that I come to expect when renting places, where I want to feel at home after long travels or being out in the streets all day. Some more decor, linens on the beds as opposed to being stored away and comfortable pillows will improve the hospitality for this otherwise wonderful rental.

Convenient location and good value!

  • 4 of 5

My two children and I stayed here for three nights during our stay in Barcelona. The apartment was located in convenient location - in Eixample. The neighbourhood itself is a more working class area and not overly touristy. However, it is located 3 blocks from the metro which can get you to more central locations very quickly. The apartment was clean and very functional and the air conditioning unit was a big help given how hot Barcelona was in August. The owners were very helpful and even left us a bottle of wine as a welcome gift! The owners also left a great list of recommendations for restaurants and other things you might need. We highly recommend the Pizza place - Gioconda - just outside the apartment. We enjoyed a couple of meals there - good food and very reasonable price. I would also agree that the apartment was quiet at night. The rooftop patio is a nice extra treat. So, while the apartment is not big on "character", it was clean, safe, comfortable, and good value for us! We would stay here again and recommend it for others as well.

Convenient, clean apartment

  • 4 of 5

The air conditioning was a welcome relief from the muggy August temperatures. Place was exactly as advertised. Nice bathroom. Easy to get around Barcelona from here. Would have preferred written check-in instructions in advance of arrival, but overall a pleasant stay.

We had a wonderful stay.

  • 4 of 5

When we arrived in Barcelona, it was already dark and I didn't have an idea of where we really were situated in town. Fidel met us at the door with keys and info on the apt. It was really clean, and in the morning we were able to see where we were. I liked being in a part of town that was more local than touristy. SInce we live outside NYC, it was easy for us to navigate around by metro. Fidel made a list of nice restaurants around the apt which we did go to. Happily. The area was very safe and it seemed really easy to walk to many of the places we wanted to go. Twice to the Palace of Art , to some of Gaudi's homes, to shopping and wide boulevards. (You will need a cab to the Park Guell)

The apt itself had all we needed. Top floor had a terrace we used more than once. We were four, two adults and two teens. I do wish I had had another bathroom ( hence one less star but that is just my preference, not a criticism of the apt) but the one there was spacious. The AC worked well. I liked the "Rear Window" aspect of the apt. From your windows, You could see all across the four sides of the large interior plaza and see families living life in Barcelona apts.

The apt's street is busy but the apt has no front facing windows so it it VERY quiet! The apt looks just as it does in the pictures. I would say it's about 400 square feet.

The second bedroom has a bunkbed with a double on top. This room does not have a window to the outside but is lit by a window to the airway. My daughter was fine. My son slept on the couch and was comfortable.

I loved Barcelona. You walk a lot. We did so much in four days it was wonderful. I love taking part of vrbo apts because you get to see how people really live in town. Plus, with four people, you can't get enough room in a hotel in Europe. They don't do the two king size bed thing and that means booking two rooms. With an apt like this, you get public space and a kitchen, terrace, as well. I would definitely recommend this apt.

It was also clear that Fidel would have provided info or attention to anything else you needed.

Oh, a taxi stop was nearly across the street. That helped in the morning on the way to the airport. (24 euros)
