About Gloria Bes

Originally from Barcelona, have been living in the UK for many years now. Have a couple of properties in Spain which I rent out in order to finance building work for a new residence near Barcelona, where I am hoping to spend more time in the future. Have three children and eventually hope they will also spend time there.

Why Gloria Bes chose Gracia

Inherited from my mother.

What makes this apartment unique

Fantastic location in the centre of the city. Easy access to all areas of the city. Being an attic, is quiet and it is very comfortable as I have recently spent a small fortune in the complete high standard refurbishment.

Just a quick email to say how much we enjoyed our stay in your

is a beautiful city. The apartment was very comfortable and convenient

with everything we needed. Many thanks and we hope to visit again.

Very minimal

Very clean minimal apartment,Could use a coffee machine, and a little more hot water. You have to be very fast in the shower! and I mean VERY FAST!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. There is a coffee maker in the apartment, I am surprised you did not find it. I think I will add another coffee maker to give more choices. The hot water tank is constantly on and enough for a normal shower, it heats up quickly again. The water pressure in the shower is very strong, perhaps I should fit an adjustable pressure shower-head, I think that would help. I am happy that it suits most people and it is an all round great apartment for a comfortable stay in central Barcelona.

Brilliant for short getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a really lovely time staying in in this flat for a week. Gloria met us on arrival and she was incredibly friendly and polite, helped us to settle in and showed us how all the appliances worked. For a young couple on a short holiday this was a perfect flat right next to the metro station but still in a quiet and safe area. The flat was very clean and tidy with nice modern furnishings and good air conditioning. Would definitely recommend for couples looking for affordable accommodation.

Compact apartment. Vey quiet as overlooks courtyard. Very clean. Good communication from Gloria.

  • 5 of 5

Gloria had given us directions to the apartment, which we found with no problem. The apartment was very clean and furnished to a high standard. It is (as advertised) small, but space used very well and absolutely fine for 2/3 people. Very close to shops/cafes/restaurants. Very close to nearest underground station- but we used very little as such a pleasure to walk around to see the sights. Many of the sights of Barcelona in walking distance. The apartment being on the top floor was very quiet as the small balcony overlooks a courtyard. Highly recommended.

Super séjour !

  • 5 of 5

Accueil et séjour très agréable. L'appartement est confortable, propre et bien équipé. Idéal pour un couple et pour découvrir Barcelone. La proximité du métro est très pratique. Situé au dernier étage (5ème, avec ascenseur) et coté cour, il est lumineux et l'on entend pas la circulation. Tous les commerces sont situé à proximité, et pour les plus gourmands, le marché de la Libertad, à 5 min à pied environ, propose de superbes étals de produits frais. Gloria est charmante et très accueillante et toujours disponible pour vous renseigner.

Location

From the Owner

Inherited from my mother.

Activity and Interests

Special interest holidays:

Close to Fontana metro station. Exciting Gaudi's 'Parque Güell' is a short bus ride away, or uphill walk of about 1 mile. From the metro station you can travel to all areas of Barcelona to suit your Barcelona viewing itinerary. Must see the fountain in Montjuïc, open late on weekends. Enquire at the Tourist office or online for opening times.

Coast/Beach:

Barcelona has several beaches, reached from the apartment via Fontana metro station, only a few stops away, also on foot, probably about 3+ miles. A must is Villa Olímpica, with its many restaurants, bars and shops. Absolutely gorgeous at night with its great atmosphere.

Travel:

Nearby there is Montserrat, an unusual grey impressive mountain range. There is a monastery, restaurant, etc.

Closer, there is the hill of Tibidabo. An exciting hill with an amusement park, a beautiful church, fantastic views of Barcelona etc. Metro to Av. Tibidabo, then the famous Blue Tram to the Funicular which will take you to the top of the hill.

Another must is the famous Montjûic hill, see below.

Distances:

Barcelona airport is only a 26 minutes ride from Passeig de Gracia station (2 stops from Fontana metro station). One every 30 minutes.

Further Details:

Another hill to visit is Montjüïc with its magic fountain, which opens evenings over the weekend, a must see. On the right-hand side of the palace you will find the 'Poble Espanyol', with replicas of streets and building from all over Spain. There is a teleferic to travel to the top, where there is an old castle, restaurant, discotheque etc. Take the metro to Plaça Espanya straight from Fontana.
