Why Karen Olsen chose El Raval

The apartment is located at few steps to Rambla Catalunya and Passeig de Gracia in Eixample quarter / City center.

Passeig de Gràcia is part of the 5 km shopping line and is an important road in Barcelona.

Here you will find most of Barcelona's international designer shops such as Chanel, Gucci, Valentino or Hermes. Also along this road are La Pedrera and Casa Batlló, two of Gaudí's characteristically dreamlike buildings.

Eixample is a safe and residential part of the city but there is also a vibrant nightlife and a thriving café culture. Eixample is a beautiful ba

What makes this apartment unique

excellent

  • 5 of 5

This is an excellent apartment located at the center - walking distance to the major attractions. With high ceilings the rooms are very spacious. The living room is well air-conditioned.

The host was very efficient in terms of communication, apartment hand-over and any questions we had leading up to the stay. Would definitely stay in this apartment again. Thank you.

I would highly recommend staying here!

  • 5 of 5

Our host was super nice and accommodating. The apartment is AMAZING, very spacious with a lot of original charm while still being updated and modern. The beds are comfortable and the kitchen is nicely stocked with dishes etc.. to accommodate a large group. The location couldn't have been better, the neighborhood is perfect for walking around, exploring the city, shopping and eating. It was convenient to catch a cab outside and easy to get anywhere in the city. I would highly recommend staying here!

charming!

  • 5 of 5

Valerie's flat is absolutely beautiful and charming. The layout is great, and very good for a big family. We were in 7 and slept comfortably in the flat. The location of the apartment is very central and easy to get to great restaurants, La Boqueria, La Sagrada Familia and other Gaudi sites. We were able to walk to a lot of different locations. The WiFi was very stable and a good speed which is great for me, since I worked while I was visiting Barcelona with my family. I would highly recommend it!

great stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay in Barcelona! This unit was centrally located near many restaurants and public transportation, in a very nice neighborhood. We enjoyed the unit itself; it had everything we needed and was comfortable. All in all, a great time!
