What We Liked
- All of the rooms are extremely comfortable; they are decorated tastefully and have tables, sofas, and wardrobes. Tenants can hang out and relax all in the comfort of their own rooms!
- The sofas turn in to beds, so tenants can host visiting friends.
- Every room is luminous- including interior rooms- eliminating the need to turn on lights during the day.
- We loved the subtle mix of modern and traditional aspects of this apartment: the tiles in the bathroom have an old-fashioned design while the rest of the amenities are completely new.
- The kitchen is big and has a lot of space to store all of your food. The landlord is going to buy a new microwave.
Things to keep in mind
- There is only 1 bathroom for 5 rooms, but it is big and brand new.
- There is no living room, but every bedroom has an area furnished with a sofa; in short, every bedroom has its own living room!
The Bailen metro station (line 5) is a 5-minute walk from the apartment. The Valencia Joaquin Sorolla Renfe station is a 12-minute walk.
Your central, stylish and chic home
L'Eixample is Valencia's most exciting area. It's stunning. And it's divided into 3 smaller districts:
- Gran Via (expensive)
- El Pla del Remei (luxurious. Full of nightlife and shopping)
- Russafa (trendy)
Walk round any corner and you'll find something worth seeing. The old and the new stand side by side. Valencian traditions have a strong presence here.
What will you uncover in L'Eixample?
What can I do here?
Gaze up at the Art Nouveau architecture.
Stroll in the sun down wide boulevards.
Browse the stores on Carrer Colón – Valencia's most exclusive shopping street.
Enjoy the chic bars, restaurants and nightclubs of Russafa (Spanish: Ruzafa). It's Valencia's trendiest barrio.
Why not try out one of the many burger bars? The Black Turtle is known for its interesting variations on the theme. Pancake burger, anybody?
Just around the corner from is Ubik. It's a bookshop and café in one. It has attentive staff and vegetarian options. Some consider it the heart and soul of Russafa.
This area really comes to life during the Las Fallas festival in March. The street lights and illuminations in Russafa are magical. (Think Christmas multiplied by ten.)
Eixample is Valencian for 'extension'. This neighbourhood grew from the old city in the late 1800s, swallowing up the former village of Russafa. Expansionist!
