Included services

  • University flat cleaning service

    So you can make the most of your time, you can enjoy cleaning service once or twice a week (depending on the size of your apartment). You are only required to clean cooking utensils after use and take out the garbage daily to maintain order and harmony among all students.
  • General apartment maintenance

    What happens if the washing machine breaks down or there is a water leak? You just have to contact us and we will send a technician to fix it, no worries. We handle small or large incidents that inevitably happen in the day.
  • Utilities: (electricity, water, gas, heat)

    The high electricity rates in Spain is a very important point to keep in mind when looking for accommodation, otherwise you can take surprises when you get the bill, especially in the coldest months of the year. So although we encourage responsible consumption at Barcelona design flats we include in the price all your bills up to € 65 per month (Zona B limited to 45 euros), so you forget to pay unexpected charges..

    High speed and at all points of the house, because we know how important it is for you to be connected 24/7.

    Forgot your keys? A power failure in the apartment? Upon arrival we will provide a mobile phone number available 24 hours to resolve any incidents outside office hours.

c/ Balmes, 166

Located in the Eixample district, next to Av. Diagonal. It is located in the commercial center of Barcelona. From this student apartment building you can easily walk to all points of interest in the city. It is located a few meters from Paseo de Gracia and Avenida Diagonal, where the largest commercial activity of the city is located.

Two minutes from the UPF and with quick access to the University Zone.

If you look at a map of Barcelona you will see a regular grid area that covers the entire center of Barcelona, above Ciutat Vella, and from the Plaza de Les Glories to Plaza España. That is the Eixample, characteristic for its square apples with large interior patios, designed by the architect Cerdà.

It is the place where you should definitely live if one of the things that has most fallen in love with Barcelona is its modernist architecture. The central axis is the Passeig de Gracia, where several of the most impressive buildings of the city are concentrated: the Casa Batlló and the Casa Milà are two of the most visited buildings by tourists from all over the world. This walk divides the Eixample into "Eixample izquierda" and "Eixample right" where the Sagrada Familia is located. Most of our university apartments are in the Eixample of Barcelona.
