Modern apartment in the bohemian Gracia
|Address||Rabassa, 08024 Barcelona, Spain|
|Response time||A few hours|
Gràcia was an independent town until the late 19th century and even now the community is small and tight and they still mainten their identity in their traditions and lifestyle.
The apartment is positioned on the 1st. floor of a residential building, a few stairs from the door.
This modern apartment, is bright and quiet, designed in white, has one double-bedroom with a comfortable bed of 1,50 x 1,90 mts and another with two single beds of 0,90 x 2,00 mts.
The bathroom has a shower and the kitchen is fully equiped in a separately space: oven, microwave, dishwasher, fridge, toaster, coffe maker and kettle. Also has washing machine, iron and table.
The living-dining room has a sofa where you can relax, watch TV or listen music.
We provide bed linen, towels and hand soap. We provide baby cot on request.
This apartment is equipped with everything you might need for a fabulous stay in Barcelona and has air conditioning, free wifi and TV.
The building is next to La Virreina square which is filled with great bars with terraces where you can have a drink or coffe and share a chat in a quiet atmosphere.
A 5 minutes walking you’ll find Verdi Street, full of restaurants, tapas bars, local shops and the well known Verdi Cinema in original language. Cine Verdi shows an discerning mix of movies from around the world, and leans towards towards the arthouse and avant-garde, making it a big favourite with film freaks.
The famous party “Fiesta Mayor de Gràcia” is held for 5 days in August. The locals compete in streets decoration. The people work very hard during the year to offer this spectacular attraction. At night the festival comes alive with drinks stalls and stages of live music of every variety.
Gràcia is totally self-sufficient, there are good amenities of every sort, great bars, cosy cafes, a real Mediterranean lifestyle.The buildings, streets and squares are in much smaller scale than those in the centre of town there is some striking art nouveau architecture to be seen.
The area is perfect for those who want a different tourist experience, although because central Barcelona is so easily accessible from Gràcia it is suitable for everyone. One of the best features of Gràcia is that there are not so many tourists so you feel like you've discovered something a bit new and diverse.
Fontana (Green line) and Joanic (Yelow line) are the metro stops, and from there you can get into the centre of the city, Plaça Catalunya in less than 10 minutes by subway.

Reviews of this property
I will say that the apartment was nice and in a great location for Catalonia, however, we started having issues with the host during the check in. They increased the tourist tax but never communicated that with me. I was unwilling to pay extra money when the amount on the website still had the agreed amount of tourist tax listed. The threat of taking the extra money out of my 150 euro deposit was a huge negative impact on my vacation. I should not have to fight for what was agreed upon in writing during my vacation.
Wimdu support sided with me and helped me right away!
El apartamento está situado en un inmueble antiguo de una pequeña calle del barrio de Gracia, en un segundo piso sin ascensor. La escalera es muy estrecha y yendo con maletas apenas permite cruzarse con alguien que baja. Está relativamente bien situado, a menos de 10 minutos de la parada de metro de Joanic, pero más lejos de las paradas de Fontana o Lesseps y de la calle Mayor de Gracia. En un radio de pocos minutos tiene cafeterías, restaurantes, supermercados, panaderías y todo lo necesario.
El apartamento no da la sensación de "recién estrenado" y las fotos de internet lo enseñan mejor de lo que es en realidad. Tiene una habitación con cama de matrimonio, bastante cómoda, y otra con dos camas muy pequeña. La cocina tiene todo lo necesario. El baño es algo pequeño y oscuro, y tampoco da la sensación de "recién estranado". El wifi funcionaba bien. Estaba limpio y las sábanas y toallas estaban bien.
Es un inconveniente que por entrar más tarde de las 8 te cobren 30 euros adicionales (nuestro avión llegaba a las 8 al Prat y tuvimos que mandar a otra persona a recojer la llave).
El reintegro de la fianza lo hicieron al día siguiente de lo que decían, tras varios correos.
It is a beautiful apartment, very clean and tidy! walking distance from Parc Guell and the metro station. Two really nice restaurants and a small square are around the corner. (best cappuccino ever). Romina is very helpful and guest friendly. I recommend this apartment to everyone who does not want to stay on the Ramblas!
Thanks again Romina!
Great little flat away from the hustle and bustle of the city centre, but close to a lively square and with two metro lines within 10 minutes' walk.
It's worth noting that the proprietor does ask for a security deposit which isn't mentioned in the description, but there was no hassle getting it back at the end of the stay.
Very clean and quiet apartment in a charming Gegend.Lediglich how well all the apartments in Barcelona, very noisy.
Ramona is very accurate, reliable and helpful.
Sehr saubere und ruhige Wohnung in charmanter Gegend.Lediglich, wie wohl alle Wohnungen in Barcelona, sehr hellhörig.
Ramona ist ist sehr sorgfältig, zuverlässig und hilfsbereit.
Lovely apartment in a very special area of Barcelona, Gracia! If you do not want to stay in the chaos of the Ramblas, but in a neighborhood full of cafes, restaurants style bohemian Gracia then choose !!! And also 'an almost entirely pedestrian area and a step away from the Parc Guell! But thanks to the subway that serves very well the city 'in 2 stops you will be in Catalunya square !!! The apartment and 'brand new! Clean and with a minimal taste perfect! The spaces are well distributed, and 'airy, quiet and bright! Romina and 'very nice and helpful! The bathroom and shower are a bit 'old and the shower has the problem of being difficult to regulate ... or hot or cold. But overall and 'was a great stay!
Delizioso appartamento in una zona particolarissima di Barcellona, Gracia! Se non desiderate stare nel caos delle Ramblas , ma in un quartiere pieno di localini, ristoranti in stile bohemiene allora scegliete Gracia!!! Inoltre e' una zona quasi unicamente pedonale e ad un passo dal parc Guell! Ma grazie alla metropolitana che serve benissimo la citta' in 2 fermate sarete in piazza Catalunia!!! L'appartamento e' nuovissimo! Pulitissimo e con un gusto minimal perfetto! Gli spazi sono ben distribuiti, e' arioso, silenzioso e luminosissimo! Romina e' molto carina e disponibile! Il bagno e la doccia sono un po' piccini e la doccia ha il problema di essere difficile da regolare...o bollente o fredda. Ma nel complesso e' stato un ottimo soggiorno!
We were very satisfied with the apartment. It was nice, clean, and had everything what we needeed. It was near to 2 metro stations, too. The neighbours were sometimes loud (they repaired sth. etc), this was the only negative thing.
Romina was very nice and helped us a lot. I can only recommend her and the apartment.
