Dear Mr,

Thanks for your mail. The apartment is available these dates. The apartment includes linen (sheets, towels, etc) and and free internet Wi-Fi to be connected with your family and friends at all time. Its biggest treasure is the terrace with incredible views of the city all over the sea, and an easy access to Barcelona’s old town.

This bright apartment is located within walking distance of Gracia’ narrow streets and lively plazas, multicultural restaurants and typical Catalans bars links to the city beaches, theBorn district and Passeig de Gràcia.

This wide flat (90 m2) features a modern home design allowing you to feel both stylish and comfortable. Three bedrooms, two bathrooms, bright living-room with a dining area and a fully equipped kitchen…Want more? Ok, an amazing balcony-terrace for you to enjoy your morning coffee or meals contempling the whole skyline of the city and the bright Mediterranean sea... It also offers its guests all the comfort and convenience of home away-from-home, from a fully equipped kitchen to all the amenities such as TV, Internet Wi-Fi to be connected with your family and friends at all time. And air conditioning, washing-machine and ironing equipment.

This vacation rental apartment, accommodating up to 6 people, is the ultimate spot for families or couples enjoying a city break with a sunny terrace in Barcelona.

Getting around will be also quick and easy: the metro station of Alfons X (L4) takes you to the old town , las Ramblas and the beaches of Barcelona as well as to the Maremagnum and Port Vell.

APARTMENT’S NEIGHBOURHOOD:

You are in Gracia, an area known for its hilly landscape and abundance of green areas and beautiful parks that make it one of the most attractive spots for people who like to spend their holidays in peace and quiet, yet close to the old city.

Staying in this incredible penthouse, you should absolutely pay a visit to one of Gaudi's famous masterpieces - Park Güell. This incredible modernist garden is the most famous sight for local people. It offers some of the most spectacular views of Barcelona with stunning architecture, creativity and is a true escape from the hustle and bustle of the city. The area is well-known for its adorable plazas (squares) always full of life and its bohemian arty atmosphere. To feel the spirit of this district, nothing is better than having a beer in one of its many terraces, among locals.

Another symbol of Barcelona, also designed by Gaudí, la Sagrada Familia. You can just admire this incredible cathedral from the apartment’ terrace; this view never gets old. Once you’ve explored the neighbourhood, fall into one of the many tapas bars and cafés on Avenida de Gaudi, which leads to another World Heritage site, the Hospital de Sant Pau.

Nice view, big space, horrible management

  • 3 of 5
My husband and I stayed here for almost three weeks in March and we found a lot of pluses as well as a lot of minuses. The location is excellent if you plan to travel by metro but it's expensive to take a taxi to and from most of the places you probably want to go to. There are many food stores in the area but hardly any restaurants and the few we saw looked unappealing. The view is really terrific, the Sagrada Famila and the sea are beautiful on sunny days. The unit is extremely spacious, sunny, (mostly) clean, and comfortable in many ways: the balcony is nice in warm weather and it's quiet at night if the windows are all closed. The wi-fi is very fast altho it requires a 21 letter and number password containing 1,I,l,0,O uppercase letters and numbers.

BUT the the management company is awful. Their excuse is that they've "been very busy" but if I were the owner I'd fire them immediately although it's possible the owner simply doesn't care. The heat didn't worked properly when we got here, it went off after a few minutes, an hour, or a few hours. I badgered them for 9 days before they finally sent a repairman and he messed around with it but didn't solve the problem. We've had other big issues with management too, including a huge snafu with our booking which resulted in a major hassle for us.

The owner clearly spent a lot of money renovating the place but unfortunately, he had no imagination and it's completely devoid of charm. Moreover, it hasn't been kept up; many things need to be repaired or replaced. And basics like matches to light the stove, toilet paper, working lightbulbs, and wastebaskets were not included. Also, there were zero instructions about how to run some appliances we'd never seen before. And no tourist info or maps either.

However, the space is definitely suitable for groups altho most of the 5 beds are pretty uncomfortable. The two in the smallest bedroom are only suitable for children.

We've rented apartments in several countries and this is the first less-than-enthusiastic review I've ever submitted. Would we stay here again? Probably not. But for us, the great view and the spaciousness compensated for most (but not all) of the flaws although if there'd been any chance of actually getting it, I'd ask for a partial refund. Bottom line? If you decide to rent this place, make sure the heat works if it's cold! And make sure you bring your own dishtowel and cutting board.

Très agréable séjour

  • 5 of 5
L'appartement est très bien situé : entre la Sagrada et le parc Guell à 10-15 minutes à pieds, entouré de petits commerces très pratiques. De plus, la ligne de métro 4 en haut de la rue dessert le centre et les plages en 10-15 minutes. L'appartement bénéficie d'une grande terrasse très agréable avec une vue panoramique. La salle de bain et la cuisine sont normale mais largement suffisantes pour un séjour-vacances. La climatisation est appréciable. Ferran est très arrangeant et très sympathique. Pour résumer, nous recommandons vivement cette location. Aud et Bruno.

Fantastic stay!

  • 5 of 5
This apartment in Barcelona was simply fantastic. The view from the balcony is exquisite and very relaxing, looking over the whole city. The landlord is kind, generous and very helpful in many ways (giving tips and informations about the city and even for daytrips around in the area). The location is perfect (walking distance from many attractions (Gracia and Parc Güell) if you feel like walking, and the subway station within a 1 minute walk). It was clean, spacious and very well furnished (furniture and dishes). I had a superb opportunity to live for a little over a week in this beautiful apartment. I have been traveling quite often in the last years, and this apartment is certainly one of the best I have rented. Thank you for everything!

ABSOLUTELY RECOMMENDABLE!!

  • 5 of 5
This apartment is the dream of everyone who love panoramic views, the whole city is at your feet night and day and we spent lots of time just watching the city below the sea and the moon. The rest of the apartment has just everything you need, sheets, blankets and towels are provided and the flat is completely equiped for 6 people. Besides is very well comunicated with the city center and there are supermarkets and shops just at the building's entrance. Absolutely recommendable!
