Barcelona is such a great city! We both visited Barcelona before we met and had an instant love affair with the city and its people. We wanted to buy an apartment which we could use to explore Barcelona and experience the sights, sounds and aromas that make Barcelona such a great place to visit. There is no place so emblematic than Barcelona's Gothic Quarter and we chose an apartment that gives us the comfort of home within walking distance to all the sights in the historic part of the city.
We love strolling over to the famous Ramblas and visiting the incredible La Boqueria market which recently celebrated its 150th anniversary - unique in all of Europe. Some of our favorite restaurants are just minutes away by foot or taxi. We love walking along the boardwalk on the Barceloneta beach at sunset.
Perfect apartment for our family of 6 with three generations! The 2 granddaughters (13 and 11) squeezed in to the 3rd bedroom with the cot! Location is perfect for jogs along the port and beach, sightseeing, metro stops, and markets. Supper of soup (Veritas market!), pizza around the corner, small supermarket a few steps away. Main meal a la española in the middle of the day. A bit noisy at night with local tavernas. Loved coming back "home" to relax and with excellent internet, check on business and home. Rachel was easily reachable and always helpful!
The apartment is perfect! Well located - metro stops, museums, Las Ramblas, restaurants. You couldn't ask for a better location. The apartment is charming - there were five of us (our college-aged kids) and it suited us well. We shopped at the wonderful market and had breakfast in along with afternoon tapas and wine! One evening it was raining so we even made dinner in - the kitchen is complete with whatever you will need. Having soap, shampoo, conditioner, hair dryers, etc is a very nice touch - some places we have stayed did not provide and it was nice to not worry about packing all that. The reservation process was easy, the staff helpful, and the list of recommended restaurants appreciated! Check in and check out were flawless. We would definitely stay here again. Thanks for helping make this a terrific vacation.
This is the second time I've rented this apartment and both experiences have been excellent. The apartment is located in the Gothic Quarter, within easy walking distance of many excellent sites, restaurants, museums, and bars. The living room is spacious and offers a small balcony over Calle Merce - the cobblestone street in front of the apartment building. The kitchen and bathrooms are modern and the two large bedrooms are comfortably apart from each other. Check-in/checkout was quick and easy and the person doing that job was personable and knowledgeable. Fast Internet access is greatly appreciated. Hopefully, there will be a third chance to stay here. Barcelona is a great city and this apartment is perfect for persons looking to enjoy all the city has to offer.
They arranged a taxi from the airport for us and met us at the apartment. The location is great! The apartment is very nice, clean, plenty of room, comfortable bedrooms and modern bathrooms. We would highly recommend it. For two couples, it was perfect!
Spacious apartment! Spotless, very well decorated and in the best location of the city!
The customer service, communication and attention to detail were amazing from the beginning. We had an excellent stay and enjoyed all the amenities!
We would definitely stay there again!
The apartment was beautiful and in the best location for exploring Barcelona! All the "extras" in the apartment - from coffee and tea in the kitchen to supplies in the bathrooms - were much appreciated and made our stay really feel like home. We appreciated the personal recommendations for restaurants and markets and enjoyed both cooking after shopping at La Boqueria and dining out close to the apartment. This was the perfect way for our family to enjoy all the sites of Barcelona and come "home" to a comfortable, well appointed apartment at the end of the day.
