The apartment in the center of BarcelonaHad the most amazing time in this apartment. Our host tatyana was amazing, very helpful. The apartment was clean and exactly how it was shown in the pictures. On top of this, the price was very reasonable considering the highly sought after location of la ramblas. For a group of young travellers we could not have been more happy.
DIAGONALGLORIASThe Diagonial Glorias apartment was perfect for our family (2 adults, sons 18 and 13 years). There was enough room for everyone, the apartment was pretty new and well equipped; especially the elevator, airconditioning, washing machine, drier and wifi were highly appreciated by us. The house was very quiet, only some noise came up from the street in the morning from the garbage trucks, but we slept well. We loved the view in the evenings, as we were wondering the Torre Agbar in blue colour. The neighbourhood was peaceful and quiet, still the shops, Glorias Mall and restaurants were just aroung the corner. It took only 20 minutes to walk to the beach.
FLORIDABLANCAWe loved everything about it- the flat was lovely, having breakfast on the balcony was one of our favourite things to do. The area was great, 20-25 mim walk to the beach or the centre but also great transport links would get you there in 10 mins. We stayed for 7 nights and found that the best, and cheapest food was round our area. Bar Ramon is a must. Miguel was great, he even booked a table for. Us one night as our spanish is dreadful...
BOLERO BCNMahtava sijainti! Kävelymatka rannalle ja monille nähtävyyksille. Turvallisen tuntuinen alue, vaikka käsilaukkuni varastettiinkin vastapäisessä Boga ravintolassa illallisen aikaan. Avulias yhdyshenkilö, wifi toimi. Pyykinpesukone oli tarpeen vaikka laitteita ei voinut käyttääkään montaa samanaikaisesti.
PEPEThe position was good - close to transport and things to see and do.
QUIET ROOMThe room is not very big but the bed is very comfortable so you can rest perfectly after sightseeing in Barcelona. Wonferful idea for a swing in the middle of the living room. The kitchen is fully equipped so that you can cook whatever you want And the lady who lives there is very kind and gives wonderful advices for everything, even how to cook fish :) It is perfect that you can drink purified water in the kitchen. The atmosphere in the flat is very relaxing.
When we talk about complete tourist destinations, Barcelona would be top of that list. The Catalan capital is pure beauty, not only thanks to its excellent weather all year long but also to its architecture, beaches, streets, squares… Renting apartments in Barcelona is a perfect way to discover the city as you would be doing so just like the locals do.[See more]
The best of Barcelona
If there is one name that is synonymous to Barcelona that is the one of the modernist architect Antoni Gaudí, a visionary and a genius that changed the appearance of Barcelona and its buildings, with landmarks such as the Sagrada Familia, Parc Güell, Casa Batlló or Casa Milà, better known as La Pedrera. The two last ones are located on the famous Passeig de Gràcia avenue, an avenue escorted by trees and modernist buildings on either side, not only by Gaudí but also by other architects of his time, definitely a must-see. Passeig de Gràcia ends where the most famous avenue in Barcelona starts; the Ramblas, where you can also find the world-famous market of La Boquería. Gastronomy is a huge part of Barcelona thanks to its great Mediterranean cuisine and tapas restaurants that you can find all over the city.
The best districts in Barcelona
The Ramblas is located in the old town, a district divided into three parts: Raval, Gothic Quarter and Born. Raval stands out for its cosy cafes and bars as well as for its famous contemporary art museum MACBA; the Gothic Quarter for its old medieval streets and the city’s Cathedral whilst Born is famous for being Barcelona’s bohemian corner, one of the best places to find cheap apartments in Barcelona where you can also visit the Picasso Museum. Also, the district of Gràcia in the northern part of the city is also a place to enjoy the true essence of the city outside of the tourist hustle, also the location of the famous Gràcia Festival in the summer.
When to come to Barcelona
Barcelona is great to visit all year long but it stands out especially in spring and autumn, when there are less tourists and the weather is milder. Although rain appears spontaneously, it’s still the best time to visit..
Getting in and around Barcelona
You can fly directly to Barcelona-El Prat airport, just a few miles away from the city, or to the nearby Girona and Reus airports, where low-cost airlines fly. The city has a fantastic public transport network, one of the best in Europe, cheap and efficient, with metros, buses and taxis as well as an excellent tourist bus that will take you to all the important landmarks.
