You have to stay here; no place like it!

It's very hard to capture how great it is to stay at this property. I read review after review about the property and all I saw was raving reviews about Raul and Carmen and I kept thinking "They can't be THAT good". Well, they are, and better. I was traveling with my wife and 6 year old son and it was perfect. First, the apartment is immaculate, in a very safe area and very easy to stay at. It is well equipped and truly feels like home. But, Raul and Carmen are the real story. Just a sampling of what Raul did for us:

1. He picked us up at the train station, brought a car seat for my son just in case, gave us a tour of the city in his car, helped us up with our luggage, gave us maps, information and directions for the city, pointed out the best stores, restaurants, shopping and sites and then insisted that we call him if we needed ANYTHING. My wife and I are both professionals who travel for work at 4 and 5 star business hotels. I've stayed in some of the best hotels in the world and Raul has most concierges beat.

2. Raul had a present waiting for my son at the house. It was gift wrapped and everything. There was also a gift basket for us waiting on the kitchen table.

3. When we arrived, I had an outstanding balance with Raul. He told me to "pay when it's easy for you". He was so considerate and trusting and said .

4. My 6 year old managed to close the door behind us and lock us out of the apartment for a couple of hours (completely our fault) on a day where Raul told us ahead of time that he'd be unavailable for a few hours. He called me immediately after he was available and when we came to get another key - HE apologized to ME for not being available immediately even though he told us he'd be unavailable for a few hours.

5. On the last day, we had an early train. Raul insisted that he'd given us a ride to the train station. He not only came to get us early and took us to the train station, but he brought croissants for us (two different kinds) because he said that the bakeries around the apartment were closed and he wanted us to have nice pastries for breakfast.

6. After all this (my family was blown away at this point), Raul walked us into the train station, helped us with our luggage and WAITED until we got into the boarding area to make sure everything was ok.

We would go back to Barcelona just for this perfect place and Raul and Carmen.

Barcelona Christmas!!

  • 5 of 5
Even before we arrived in Barcelona we had a very favorable opinion of our hosts, as Raul had offered to pick us up at the airport, and had given us some tips on things to do and see in Barcelona specific to the Holiday season. Raul did meet us at the airport and gave us a brief orientation driving tour of Barcelona on our way to the apartment. He and Carmen welcomed us to their rental apartment with a hospitality basket of fruit, candy, and wine, and made sure we were settled comfortably in, checking to see if there was anything more we might need. The apartment itself is centrally located with easy walking and metro access to all parts of the city center. It is light and airy with a view of rooftops and a courtyard and a stunning view of the sunrise every morning. Although it might be a little tight for 5 guests, it is absolutely ideal for 3. If one chose to, you could comfortably cook every meal right there, but who would want to? Barcelona has some of the finest food and eateries anywhere, and Carmen and Raul are more than happy to suggest great neighborhood spots. Raul and Carmen are perfect emissaries for a delightful and historic city, and perfect hosts to welcome guests to a great vacation rental apartment. Muchas Gracias!!!

Beautiful city, great location, terrific apartment

  • 5 of 5
Raul was a great landlord, always asking if there was anything we needed. The apartment is well furnished, very bright and sunny. Location is in the middle of Barcelona, near public transportation. No need for a car, we went all over either walking or taking transit. The apt has internet access. Raul picked us up and dropped us off at the airport, a great convenience! Raul speaks excellent English, which was a real help.

Great apartment and lovely, warm welcoming owners!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I have stayed at many rental apartments all over the world. Never have we experienced the warm welcome and personal touches provided by Raul and Carmen. The apartment was outfitted perfectly. Raul and Carmen have though of everything to make their rental property feel like home. The beautiful terrace was an added bonus for enjoying a glass of wine and a home cooked dinner after a long day of sightseeing. The location could not be better. The Metro is steps away and easy to use. The Sagrada Familia is within walking distance. The neighbourhood is quiet and safe and has everything you might need, groceries, banks, pharmacy, hairdresser, bakery and 10 good restaurants near by. But, what makes this property special are the owners, Raul and Carmen. Before our stay, Raul answered email questions the same day! He picked us up and dropped us off at the airport and cruise ship terminal. We were welcomed with a fruit basket and grocery starter kit including wine! Raul provided detailed maps and instructions for getting to the various sights we wanted to see. Raul booked our on-line sightseeing and printed confirmations for all the hard to get into sights. Our stay in Barcelona was memorable because of these beautiful people and their lovely apartment. I would not hesitate to recommend this property. We hope to see you again Raul and Carmen! Fondly, John and Linda

The apartment exceeded our expectations! It was super clean and very comfortable . Raul was very pleasant and we appreciated all the attention he personally gave us . We were so grateful that he picked us at the airport on our late flight from Granada . He also dropped us off early in the am for our flight home. We felt very safe at this apartment. it's closed to plaza España, metro stations ,restaurants . Thank you for helping us book online the visit to Sagrada Familia and hop on and off busses. I will recommend this rental to anyone that wants to stay in Barcelona.

Very accommodating hosts

  • 5 of 5
We recently stayed at Raul and Carmen’s lovely apartment and felt most welcomed by their warmth and hospitality. They went out of their way to see that we had all that was needed (photocopies for instance), and Raul gave us very detailed maps of the neighborhood which made finding our way around much easier than using larger maps. The apartment is located near the metro, which can get you to Barri Gotic and Las Ramblas in 5 minutes. It is also just down the street from a handy grocery store and some tapa bars and restaurants. We would definitely recommend this great apartment to all our friends and family as Raul and Carmen are most accommodating and very exceptional “landlords.” They made our visit to Barcelona even more special.
