The Passeig de Gràcia apartments are seven apartments all located in the same building, owned by the same person. Manel has four "suite apartments" that are basically identical, as well as three other slightly different apartments, the Passeig de Gràcia Residence, the Passeig de Gràcia Terrace, and the Passeig de Gràcia Penthouse.
The four suite apartments (11, 14, 24, and 34) are all 1-bedroom, 1-bathroom apartments that can sleep up to 4 people. In each, the bedroom has a queen-sized bed, and in the living room there is a queen-sized fold-out sofabed. They are beautifully renovated with parquet flooring and brand-new bathrooms and kitchens -- so they both ARE and LOOK sparkling clean! The furniture and decorations are identical or very similar in all four of the apartments, with modern furniture and a tasteful 'minimalist' style.
The suites are equipped with pretty much all the modern amenities you could think of to make your stay comfortable: air-conditioning, WiFi, double-glazed windows (so it stays quiet inside), flatscreen TV with DVD player, CD player, mini-safe, iron, hair dryer, and washer/dryer. Even the kitchen is decked out with everything you could need to make basic meals, like microwave, toaster, electric kettle, American coffee machine, and a dishwasher. For families traveling with small children, the owner also offers the use of a crib and a highchair for free (upon request).
Suite 11 is located on the 2nd floor of the building (with a modern elevator). The building, which is rather small, has Manel's seven "Passeig de Gràcia" vacation apartments, as well as a few other apartments which are still residential. Manel's office, where he works all day handling reservations and managing the apartments, is on the first floor of the building, which has a beautiful, fairy tale-like Modernist façade.
It's located right on the Passeig de Gràcia, one of Barcelona's most important streets, close to Gaudí's famous Casa Milà (locally called 'La Pedrera', which means 'the stone quarry'), a UNESCO World Heritage site -- a trip up to walk around the maze-like rooftop and see the 'stone warriors' up close is a must (it will remind you of an MC Escher painting)! It's also close to the metro (just 2 blocks from the Diagonal stop), making it very easy to get around the rest of the city from there.
