About Jordi Garcia i Serra
I am the father of two beautiful girls aged 2 and 4 years. Married to a doctor who does not stop exercising even at home, where there are 3 babies to attend (she says). My favourite sports are mountain biking, skiing and sailing. I studied economics and my redemption is to teach that matter to dozens of college students each year. As an employee, I worked for family and multinational companies, created an airline and a platform of services (Alumni). I like to launch projects whatever the schedule or the magnitude of the challenge. Now I'm involved in helping start-ups (entrepreneurship) that will create wealth and jobs (I hope so!). Have travelled around Europe and the landscape that I liked most was that of Norway. It's a shame that the country is so expensive! When I stayed in USA I loved Chicago as a city and the Death Valley as a landscape. I like to be clear and direct in my relationships. I love careful people, and I like to care about the places I stay.
Jordi Garcia i Serra purchased this Apartment in 2003
Why Jordi Garcia i Serra chose Les Corts
This house used to be the home of my wife during 2 years. Then she met me and I joined her at this place for 3 years more. After that we decided to have children and we decided to take advantage of the real state downpricing and we moved 3 blocks away.

Barcelona great place to stay.
We stayed at Jordi's apartment Berlin 89 from 20 October till 24 October, 2018 We found the apartment just the right size and utilized the two bedrooms, kitchen was well stocked and there were two small markets across the street, which met our needs for food.
This apartment is close to the Barcelona underground which transported us to most of the places we wanted to see, or private tour operators.
Highlights were to many to discuss in this forum.
Jordi's team arranged transportation for us to go the Barcelona Airport at 6 am on our day of check out. We found all of his team very helpful and would like very much to return in the future.
This was certaninly a "5" star say. Thank you Jordi and his team.
My husband and I enjoyed our stay at Jordi’s apartment. We were very comfortable and the apartment had everything we needed. I would highly recommend Jordi’s place for your stay in Barcelona.
Cozy apartment. Great hospitality from Jordi.
We lived our stay. Jordi was very helpful with suggestions and directions. House was sufficiently stocked. Easy to get cabs and train station is nearby. The L3 green line Sants station is close enough if you are dragging suitcases. The main Sants station is a little further away and ge walk to the apartment is uphill. It is not far. So on a regular basis it is just fine but if you have luggage, get on the L3 line and get off at Sants.
Thanks for your stay and your lovely words. We are also happy you stopped at our cute apartment on your Barcelona trip.
We absolutely love this apartment! It’s spacious for 4 adults to move freely & convenient location.
Jordi and Malvina are fantastic! The apartment is so clean and has everything we need for the stay. Close to Metro is a huge plus, since it’s in residential area so it’s quiet in the evening. Supermarkets and restaurants in the neighbourhood also makes it easier if in need of certain supplies. The apartment is equipped with air conditioner which makes a big difference as it’s very hot in the summer. Overall, we were very happy with the experience and definitely will come back again!
Perfect, safe location, very convenient
our Stay with Jordi's apartment was very happy.
It was very convenient to main train station, metro, public buses, grocery stores, clean, very well furnished with utensils, furniture.
Jordi and Malvina both were very helpful, responsive, always there to help/gives suggestions.
Everything work perfect from the beginning to the end.
This apartment was centrally located to the Metro. Loved the fact that we had a personal greet upon arriving, to whom provided us with knowledge of the area, maps and general guidance to make our stay stress free. The apartment is well equipped and suited our needs perfectly.
There are full of thinks you can do in Barcelona around the apartment. But let me show them as a local: FOR EAT: Basc Country restaurant: Zarautz. Open from 8:30 till 23:30. It’s very typical from the North of Spain and also one of our preferred restaurants in the zone. I use to go with friends to eat “tapas” and drink some “Txacoli”. Below you can find the directions from your apartment. Japanese Take away. SUSHI OISHI. Open 11h-16h and 19h-23h. One of the best in Barcelona! They do the sushi at the moment and the soup it’s delicious! When we have friends at home, or in Friday, when we are tired and don’t want to cook, we just call for a 76 XXL menu and that’s awesome!! You can call to +34 931 413 313 and after 20-30 minutes they will be at your apartment with everything. Restaurant Raco d’en Cesc. Probably the most celebrated restaurant in Barcelona where Football players, stars, ministers and the king of Spain are common guests. If you want to go, I recommend to make a reservation to avoid not having a table. They have reserved saloons to host families with children or babies. Below you can find the directions from your apartment. FOR SHOPPING: Shopping Mall Las Arenas. And old spectacular Bullring now converted in 12 Cinemas, 34 Restaurants, 90 Stores. With a great view of Barcelona and the Montjuic Fountains Show (each night at 21h): When we want to impress some friend we go with him to Las Arenas, and put him in the centre of the bullring and look up. That’s impressive! Below the directions in google maps. Shopping Street Carrer de Sants. This is the most vibrant street in Barcelona (after the Rambla) with a shop every meter. It's said this is the longest shopping street in Europe with more than 2.1 km... We use to go almost every week to buy anything. You will not buy everything! Find the direction form your apartment below. FOR CHILDREN: Miniatur Barcelona. It’s a place called Scopic where they have a miniature of Barcelona in a place with 5,000 square meters! Also they have a little train where children can get on. (The only problem is that the train is working now but the Barcelona miniature opens in July… sorry). Tibidabo. The amusement park where the children of Barcelona go every generation from 1902! It’s in the mountain, a bit far away from centre but also it has spectacular views from Barcelona. Here is one public transport combination to reach it. The trip will last one our to get there https. OUTSIDE BARCELONA: Montserrat. An especial mountain that legends says it was a virgin found in the cave with children in their arms. (I growth there!). Every year 3 million of tourists visits the church. It’s a visit of full day. This is the normal way to visit Montserrat. There are other famous places like The Ramblas, Gaudi Sagrada Familia Church and Catalonia Square, but guides are full of these places. I preferred to show you some different places, that local use and are also interesting. Feel free to comment anything if you visit these places, I’m always happy to change my recommendations. It’s very important for me to have your opinion.
Additional information about rental rates

So the guests must respect this and go the pubs or bars especially indicated for parties. PARKING is not free. It costs 12/€ day. PETS: We like our guests feel at home, and to be treated as if they were to live there forever. Accept pets, however we expect them not to leave "footprint" of their passage. SMOKE: Nor do we intend to impose on anyone who does not smoke, though we expect the environment are the following guests is "airy". AFTER BOOKING: When you confirm your booking I will send you a guide about near neighborhood and tips for the apartment comfortability. Also, in order to give you a better and personalized service, I will ask you some information through a form, about arrival transportation, scheduled time and contact data in order to meet you and give you the keys. With this information we avoid major delays in giving you the keys.
