Apartments Barcelona is a local holiday apartment rental agency founded by Eduardo Navarrete in 2003, over a decade ago, with the vision to inspire better travel experience in Barcelona connecting people to right apartments.
It all started when Eduardo realized that while traveling he’d like to have more private space rather than most hotel rooms offered. Neither was he keen to renounce the comfort and amenities he’d used to in his own place.
He traveled a lot for business and vacation purposes and had to deal with most of the issues any traveler would face in the unknown city.
The idea to provide every guest with the right solution which works best for him has become the motto of the founded company.
Eduardo started from renting the apartment of his friend who lived abroad and used to make an excel of availability which he’d update after receiving every booking.
Not long after, Lina joined the team and it became clear that in order to grow we’d need the website and the proper management system. The first version of the website was launched in 2007, however, it was quite simple and had upon request only listings in order to coordinate the availability with the landlords and, again, the excel sheet=).
This changed within a couple of years in 2010 when introducing the online bookings shifted the apartment rental market and it became the next big thing. We saw the potential of it and were one of the first agencies to implement the online reservation system on the website.
In 2011, Mikhail has joined our team to manage the marketing questions and Apartments Barcelona launched the new website with an online booking in order to stay up to date with the new market tendencies.
In late 2013, Alicia reinforced our team when we were to renovate our Ramblas Boqueria building and not long after took over Casa Dover apartments.
We also added the possibility to rent our apartments by months(long-term rentals) with no agency fee charged unlike most of the agencies in Barcelona.
In 2014, Jesus Gascon, who’s great at numbers and not only, joined up to help to manage study abroad and long-term inquiries.
In 2016, we have added Rocafort Eixample apartments to our portfolio and had to restructure our Customer Service Department. David successfully took over it and is managing post-booking Customer Happiness and all related issues.
In 2017, we’ve migrated Apartments Barcelona Blog to the new platform with the clean and fresh look, and the idea to deliver latest city hacks and tips from locals to our community and guests.
Now, we have a solid team of professionals and looking forward with enthusiasm to what comes next for us and our company.
