A WONDERFUL LOCATION AND VIEW.

  • 4 of 5
The location of this apartment is the best for enjoying Barcelona. You can walk to many locations and the metro is right there. The "4 Gats Restaurant" is about 4 blocks away and a must for lunch or dinner (Be sure to make a reservation for either). Also there is a taxi location right out the front door. Cab rides around the city are very reasonably priced. The terrace overlooking the plaza is wonderful. You get the full feel of the city from the terrace. The place was clean and well furnished. The beds were comfortable and all the towels and linens were clean. There is an instruction folder for appliances, phone, internet, etc. available but it needs to be updated to match the unit's appliances (although you can figure them out without it). Also there should be instructions for the TV service. Even the agent had trouble figuring it out. But who watches TV in Barcelona ! After trying it the first night we never even thought of turning it on again.
In conclusion.... a clean, modern apartment in a great location with a great city view.

NOT PERFECT, BUT WHAT A LOCATION!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here in summer '09, so it is hard to comment on how the apartment is currently managed, and even when we were there it wasn't perfect--the new washer/dryer wasn't hooked up correctly and it took days to get fixed, and the porch furniture is not in great shape. We did not have any problems with cleanliness, and for the most part everything worked. We have rented quite a few places through VRBO, so I suppose we have gotten used to things not going as smoothly as it would in a hotel, but accept that that is the price for other benefits and a little adventure.
And this place has very special benefits. First of all, the location is unbeatable--perched high above Plaza de Catalunya, with an unbelievable view of it and the incredible energy of the city. Second, it is close to some of the best parts of Barcelona--an easy walk to Las Ramblas and all of its excitement, and very close to the wonderful sites and history of the Barri Gotic. And close to the Eixample, and some of Gaudi's wonderful buildings. The list goes on. And despite its imperfections, it is definitely a stylish apartment--just look at the pictures.world.
So, despite some small problems, we had a wonderful time exploring Barcelona, coming back to it after and exhausting but exhilarating day in the city, enjoying a glass of wine as we watched dusk settle on the city, and got ready for another wonderful late Spanish supper. If you have a little tolerance for things not being perfect, and mostly want to experience a great city in the most special way possible, rent this apartment!

VERY DIRTY AND ALOT OF THE APPLIANCES DID NOT WORK. BE WARY.

  • 1 of 5
Booked into this apartment on the 15th April, 2011 for three nights. What a shocking place. Downstairs bathroom was not clean and oozed a very bad smell into the bedroom area. Great lumps of hair were in the toilet and the towels were old and could have been mistaken for rags had seen better days. The TV's in the two bedrooms did not work and the agents knew this saying they had been broken for a long time.. Upstairs one of the lightbulbs in the kitchen was fused and the elements on the stove did not work. The basin in the main bathroom refused to drain after my husband I washed & shaved & remained like that until we left on the morning of the 18th April 2011. This was despite a call to the Agent on the first morning to have this problem fixed. We were assured that it would be & to await a call from the repairman in the early afternoon. We waited all afternoon for that call which did not eventuate. A wasted afternoon for us who were eager to see the sights of Barcelona.This meant we had to wash & shave in the kitchen. Nobody answered the emergency numbers on the Agents business card, the concierge could not talk English & even when we bought him up to the apartment to show him what was wrong nothing was done. We continued to try the emergency number through the weekend but without success. God forbid if a pipe had burst.
The agent came to see us on the last day to return our bond (what a joke, they should have paid us) and was not at all interested. Our advice is to book into a reputable hotel and steer clear of this mickey mouse outfit.

Owner's Response: First of all, it is very important that to note this apartment has never had a bad review in all the 8 years I have been renting it. The client paid for exactly what was advertised, which is a luxury duplex apartment in the heart of Barcelona. Nowhere on the website does it mention the 2 bedroom TVs, because we do not advertise amenities that I cannot guarantee. However the big screen TV in the living room, which is advertised, functions perfectly. As for the linens, if they were not up to the client's standards I would have replaced them. However they did not request this. The bathroom was cleaned to my standards which are quite high. Again, I was not aware because they did not let me know. As for the bathroom sink having a drainage problem, they brought this to my attention and I sent a plumber directly to the apartment who determined that the drainage problem was minimal.

Also I wish to make it perfectly clear that I did answer their emergency phone calls and I can attest to this because on many occasions they were needlessly rude over the phone. I have highly acclaimed customer service and I work very hard to ensure the best quality of service and I do not deserve to be treated in such a manner. Also, concerning the English language level - I can speak English quite well. I cannot be responsible for the concierge's English level as he doesn't work for me.

Concerning the payment, I returned the security deposit as is required by contract. I then received a fax from my bank stating they wanted a full refund. I am sorry for their discomfort, but for a minor drainage problem and 2 TVs that do not work - which are not stated on the website as amenities in the apartment for this reason - and a small light bulb being out does not warrant a full refund or even a partial refund. And it certainly does not warrant the rude treatment or this mean-spirited review on VRBO. I am a serious property owner, not a "mickey mouse outfit" and I have a long list of very satisfied customers to prove it.
