Eixample apartment for 3 adults

Hi I am looking for a 2br apartment for 3 adults in Eixample. It will be for 8 days in Jan 2011. I am looking for a safe area but close to restaurants. We like something quite nice decor wise.

Any help is appreciated- thanks:)

If you search this forum you can find many threads about good rental agents, which would be the place to start.

Perhaps if you mentioned what the prob was with the booking sites mentioned folks could help more?? Was price the issue? Was decor the issue?? Perhaps you are looking for something that does not exist?

No the prices were fine- we are happy to spend up to 1400 Euros for 8 nights.

We need the internet - which most had.

Yes a lot of them the decor was an issue (sorry I'm an Interior Designer so a bit fussy).

With a lot there was only 1 sofa for 2 people in the living room. We are travelling with our 17 year old son in January- so need seating for 3 adults.

1 bathroom is fine.

I am also looking at staying in Eixample. I saw some lovely properties in other areas but not here,

Any ideas of apartments or agencies I should try would be great- thanks:)

1 extra thing- we need 2 bedrooms. Many of the apartments had 1 bedroom and a sofa bed. I would rather pay the extra for a separate 2nd bedroom.

Thanks:)

Julesh, hope this works out for you. Here are 2 ideas. The first one is Vacation Rentals By Owner (VRBO). I've rented apartments listed on this website in Mexico City and Paris, but not Barcelona. There might be some nice apts. that suit you but you still need to read the reviews carefully and make sure that you are dealing with an honest landlord.

The second idea is linked below. It's a beautiful apartment hotel on Passeig de Gracia, diagonally across from Gaudi's Casa Mila (aka La Pedrera). I considered renting it myself when we visited but we didn't need that much space so we ended up at 2 nice hotels. SUITES AVENUE BARCELONA is operated by Derby Hotels and the bldg is designed by Japanese architect Toyo Ito. Another TA member, SmokinActuary, stayed there recently. You can send him a private message or perhaps, he'll chime in with his comments about the place.
