Where to Rent a Flat in Barcelona

If you haven’t already been to the breathtakingly beautiful city of Barcelona, then consider this a call to action! As the largest city on the Mediterranean coast, Barcelona has both centuries of history that date back even to the Medieval Ages, as well as the qualities of an exotic beach destination you find all around this ocean. It is one of the largest European metropolises and is caught between the Serra de Collserola mountain range and the turquoise waters of the sea. Between cultural attractions like Montserrat, the Picasso Museum, and exploring the waters and mountains that surround this urban haven, Barcelona is one of the most ideal locations for a vacation, whether for a romantic getaway or a family retreat.

One of the things that makes this city so great to visit is the numerous opportunities to rent a flat in Barcelona at an affordable price for as long or as short a time as you’re looking for.

Don’t let ash clouds keep you away from Barcelona

Icelandic volcanoes and the Authorities contrive to keep thousands upon thousands of travelers away from family, work commitments or holidaymaking

Many of our great clients have been adversely affected by the ongoing shutdown of European airspace as they have been forced to cancel trips to Barcelona. I’d like to offer our empathy to all of you, for it is a situation which could make every one of us feel frustrated and powerless, when all plans go to nought.
Our response to these circumstances is clear and straightforward – we want to make sure that you won’t be kept away from Barcelona for long.

  • We will temporarily modify our policy stated in our terms and conditions articles 2.1.1 and 2.2.2 and shall NOT be claiming any cancellation fees from our affected clients who cannot travel to Barcelona.
  • Whims of the Icelandic gods permitting, our affected clients can make another booking for the SAME apartment (or an equivalent apartment in the same complex) for check in until 31 December 2010 and apply prepayment made as credit for the new booking.

See you all soon

Moreover, we have NOT raised our prices, unlike many other businesses in many industries which have taken advantage of the unfortunate circumstances travellers have found themselves in.
When you decide to travel our way again, we’ll glad to welcome you back!
Of course, as usual, I’m at your disposal should you want to make any inquiries about your bookings and I look forward to your feedback.

mwc a world of anecdotes

Como sabéis, Barcelona es sede todos los febreros del más importante congreso mundial de telefonía móvil el MWC y nos llegan gentes de todo el mundo, de los lugares más insospechados…

MWC en la Fira de Barcelona

Llegan a una ciudad de la vieja Europa, mediterránea y llena de historia.  Recuerdo la perplejidad de un cliente que alquiló su apartamento en el Barrio Gótico.  El apartamento era una monada, totalmente reformado y decorado con muy buen gusto.  Nuestro amigo venía de oriente próximo, con sus desiertos, sus rascacielos último modelo, sus islas con forma de palmera… y claro, métete en lo que es el Barrio Gótico de Barcelona.  Pues un laberinto de calles estrechas, adoquinadas, mucha fachada de piedra y sol sólo en los pisos más altos.

Su reacción fue “explosiva” y había que convencerle en 30 segundos de que no se puede despreciar lo que no se conoce, pero ¿cómo explicarle a un saudí el concepto de gótico?.   No se me ocurrió otra cosa que repetirle muchas veces, con los ojos muy abiertos y moviendo mucho las manos a modo de ¡¡¡¿estoy poseída?!!!, las palabras “historia” “cultura” “herencia” y una vez más “gótico, gótico, gótico”.  Y funcionó.

X marks the Spot

One of my favorite games as a child was to discover buried treasure. Of course, you needed a gang of like-minded ‘mates a couple of spades… and a treasure map! Before you knew knew it, we’d dug up half the garden and half the lovely old lady nextdoor’s garden too. The time we got really lucky, we dug up a couple of worms, and kept them to go “fishing” the next day.
Flash back to reality… now that we are all grown up, the romance of the treasure hunt remains entrenched in our hearts. So what better way to pay tribute to our childhood memories than by creating a treasure map of our own?

So we at bizFlats did just that, we created a map with all our properties on it so you can quickly find an apartment in your favorite area of Barcelona. It’s still in beta, so if you see anything strange happenning, be assured we’ll work to sort it out. Have a look at the map below

Pinpoint your exact requirements

You can add and remove the apartments in any area of Barcelona. Likewise, you can add and remove the types of apartments most suitable to your requirements. Then click on a property’s icon on the map itself to get the vital statistics and a picture in the nifty little bubble.

Atop the map you can see a list of apartments too, which is especially useful when you seek out multiple apartments for a big group, all in one location.

Toggle to your heart’s content

Now you can see your chosen apartments either on a list – the traditional way – or on the map. When you include the dates of arrival and departure you’ll get the prices too. So just click the tabs at the top and toggle back and forth as much as you like. Soon, we’ll add a synchronization so if you make a change to the list, you’ll update the map and vice versa.

The treasure of a lovely stay in Barcelona is right here waiting for you to find it.

Do you have suggestions on how to make the map tool even better? Is there a particularly useful tool you have found on another website that you’d like to share? Tell us in the comments below
