Wonderful stay in Barcelona

  • 5 of 5
Last week in March, we spent a week in Barcelona. The weather was comfortable, the city was beautiful, and the apartment we stayed was well suited for us - convenient (the location was ideal), right size for two, clean and artistically arranged.

The owners are a father-daughter team. The father is an artist. The apartment interior and furnitures were nicely arranged with many innovative ways to best use limited space, reminiscent of IKEA. We don't mean the apartment is small; it's just right for two people if you don't hate each other.

The apartment is just a few minutes walk from the central train station, and metro stations to other parts of the city. Barcelona is actually small enough so that you can even walk from one part of it to another - an alternative for treadmill exercise at home and taking taxi on the street. We found a lot of useful local information on the coffee table, in addition to complimentary fruits and cookies. The owners also told us the best way to use local transportation, which was to get a ticket for 10 or 20 rides.

There is a small cafe on the same street for breakfast, and a few grocers nearby to get fresh fruits. The streets were quiet in the night and morning, so we would wake up naturally and walked to the balcony to experience the spring breeze and watch people walking on the street below.

If we will ever go back to Barcelona, we will stay in this place again.

Perfect stay

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful week in Barcelona! This apartment was off the beaten path enough that we felt more like we lived in Barcelona than like we were in the middle of a tourist trap, which is our preference. Some of the major sight-seeing areas were a decent walk from the apartment, but we did the walk across the city multiple times. The metro stops were super convenient when we just wanted to get somewhere quickly. Upon our arrival, Paula greeted us so warmly and got us acquainted with the surroundings. She helped us get in touch with the airport to locate missing luggage as well. They have a great assortment of maps, as well as a really well-stocked kitchen. They had a bottle of champagne waiting for us when we arrived, as we were on our honeymoon--so thoughtful! We were impressed with the apartment, and felt well taken care of by the owners. We slept well, and were very comfortable. We would most definitely stay here again if we were lucky enough to return to Barcelona!

Great location, cozy apartment!

  • 5 of 5
My parents and I stayed in the apartment for a week in Oct.
The owners were very helpful and made everything quite easy.
The apartment was newly renovated and very clean. Everything was in great condition and we didn't have any issues.
The apartment is quite central which was quite helpful to get everywhere very quickly.
Definitely recommend for 2-3 people.

Great place. We enjoyed every day for two weeks

  • 5 of 5
VERY well equipped with new equipment and furnishings, such as air conditioner, space heater in bathroom, several styles of coffee makers, clothes washer AND dryers full range with oven, good hot water heater, great lighting everywhere, wide assortment of cooking tools and utensils, etc.

Close to several modes of mass transit (3 metro lines, train, busses) and walking distance to several points of interest, e.g. national Museum of Catalonia, Arena, the traditional market at Hostafrancs with great seafood and cheese selections as well as the expected vegetables and charcuteries.

Very hospitable hosts met us at the airport in the later evening and had supplied the kitchen with a good starting inventory (juices, milk, fruit, tea, oil, tea, coffee, etc.)

We were very impressed that they have really thought through the needs and the comforts of guests such that we never found ourselves feeling any lack. In nearly three months of travel, this is the best overall hospitality we have received.

Wonderful owners, newly renovated apartment

  • 5 of 5
The unit was spacious, clean, and newly renovated. There was a limit to how much electricity could be used at once though, and we found that when the hot water tank was heating more hot water after we had showered, we were not able to run the washer, dryer, or stove without blowing the breaker and having the electricity turn off in the whole unit. We solved this by turning off the breaker to the boiler when we needed to run another major appliance. This is a personal gripe though, since we were not used to the electrical consumption limits in Europe. The unit was fully stocked with toilet paper, maps, dish soap, laundry soap, oil, fruit, tea, milk, water, and everything that you needed to make a meal. It was quiet, the bed was comfortable, the WiFi was fast, and there was plenty of hot water. The TV played our .mp4 and .avi movie files off of our USB stick. The air conditioning worked well and was very important after a hot afternoon of sightseeing. Constantino was quick to respond to our questions both before and throughout our stay. We were within walking distance to a grocery store (one block away) which was huge and had everything you could need for very reasonable prices. It was an hour’s walk to most major sites, but the L5 metro line was just a couple of minutes away and that took us everywhere we needed to go. The only other things that would have possibly been nice to have would be beach towels, a beach umbrella, and a strainer for pasta.

Owner's Response: First of all we want to thank you for your comment.
Regarding the problems with electricity, we inform you that it was a malfunction caused by poor general installation of the building. We have already solved it and hopefully it will not appear after the repair we did. Anyway, we apologize for the inconvenience you had and thank you in advance for your understanding.
Sincerely

In one of the most ancient and endearing neighborhoods of the city. To less than 5 minutes walking of the central station of Sants or of the Plaza de España and Montjuic's Mountain. Also to 5 minutes of the new mall 'Las arenas'. Very well communicated with 3 lines of underground and diverse lines of buses, besides all the lines of train both of surroundings and of crossed length and high speed. Very near two of the biggest green spaces of Barcelona: El Parque de la España Industrial and the park Joan Miro.
