Why Bea and Stephen Garforth chose Dreta de l'Eixample

We fell in love with this apartment because it is in a most beautiful palatial modernist house in L'Eixample, a district with some superb classically designed buildings constructed in the late 19th Century, yet within walking distance of the old city & many sites in central Barcelona. The apartment is spacious light and quiet a great place to come home to after a busy day in Barcelona.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a fantastic time in Barcelona and loved the flat We also appreciate all the great suggestions in the book. Also Rachel was great. Very helpful! Your suggestions were great and we ate at Aqua twice and at a few of the other recommendations too! There is so much to do and see in Barcelona, I am sure we will come back again. We will certainly recommend your lovely flat as we really enjoyed it. The book full of suggestions was very useful.

The only suggestion I could think of that might help people, concerns Barcelona's layout of the underground. A more explicit indication in your book of the underground system might be useful.

The apartment was well appointed, and we loved the way it was decorated. Also so nice to open up the windows and look out onto the courtyard! It was great to be able to print out boarding passes from the printer (much appreciated) and the bottle of wine was a welcome gesture! In all, we could think of nothing that we would want changed. The area was great and so convenient.

Thank you so much for everything. We have some fond memories of our time in Barcelona and would love to return. We will certainly highly recommend your flat to others and appreciate all you did to make our stay so great.

Simply Wonderfull!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this place! Location was our prime reason for the booking but the apartment itself might be the reason for a return stay. It was large, well equipped and very quiet - even being on an active street. Easy stroll to Old Town. Property manager checked us in - showed us everything in detail - answered all our questions (in English - big bonus) - best first impression of our trip. Just felt like a real home - wonderful art, cozy sitting area, lending book nook, French doors to the courtyard. You will not be disappointed should you be lucky enough to book this unit.

Owner's Response: Micheal Thank you so much for your wonderful review. Bea an I and the crew at Sant Pere are so pleased you enjoyed your stay in Barcelona. Catalonia has been in the news recently, with the political situation and media hype. We can assure our guests it has not spoilt anyone's stay in Barcelona, in fact, it is not very noticeable on the streets. Barcelona is still and always will be a happy and welcoming city. With thanks Bea & Steve

Spacious apartment in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We were very pleased with our choice. The apartment was well maintained and very comfortable for a family of 4. Great location with the Gothic quarter a short walk away. We loved Barcelona with all that it has to offer and will definitely return ... we’d very happily book this apartment again (a great find)!

Wonderful, well-equipped apartment

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was beautiful, and the owners had stocked coffee, shampoo, toilet paper, all kinds of useful things! Huge grocery store hidden in the building made everything very convenient. Quieter area than the old city, just a few minutes walk away. The managers were easy to get a hold of. Highly recommend!

Fantastic, comfortable, quiet apart. close to all

  • 5 of 5

We had no idea of what to expect, but this apartment has it all! Fantastic location, close to everything (especially the old quarter, Le Born), spotlessly clean, beautifully furnished, and unusually quiet for a center city apartment. The beds were incredibly comfortable, and the bathrooms and kitchen top drawer and new. Easy WiFi that worked in entire building, lovely linens and towels, and great water pressure. There is a huge bank of floor to ceiling windows along one side of the apartment that lets you look out on a fabulous and large back courtyard that backs onto an entire city block. Loads of light, excellent support from owners, and a really comprehensive hand-book of clear instructions with recommended restaurants, things to do, places of interest, etc. Taxi stand 1 block away and bus stop right outside building made getting anywhere a breeze (if you choose not to walk). Amazing city and an even more amazing apartment...we had a wonderful time and the apartment was central to our enjoyment of Barcelona. Don't even think of staying anywhere else! 6 out of 5 stars.

Wonderful apartment in convenient location!

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was a great home base for a family of 5 discovering Barcelona for a week. The proximity to a supermarket, shops, bakeries, and an organic grocery store was a big plus. We appreciated the great communication with the owners and manager from the get go, then the convenience of Diona and Juan arranging our taxi to and from the airport, and easy check-in with Juan. We will return again, because there is so much to see in Barcelona, one week was not enough. Beautiful, comfortable apartment and great stay.

Excellent apartment in great central location. Highly recommended.

  • 5 of 5

Owners and staff are very helpful and pleasant. Apartment is atractively furnished and well equipped with everything you probably need. Grocery store is on ground floor of building and small market is at the other end of block. Many restaurants within a few blocks in any direction. We look forward to returning soon.
