Great Apartment in Barcelona

  • 5 of 5
This apartment was beautifully restored and had all the modern amenities. As the four of us stayed for six nights, having two separate bathrooms was a big plus. The apartment was clean and well maintained just as it was represented in the listing photos.

As far as location the apartment couldn't have been more centrally located to all of the main sites: museums, churches, shopping, restaurants, sea shore. Nearly everything that we wanted to see was within easy walking distance.

One of the best features of the apartment was our host, Victor, who was readily available via email, text or phone for any questions that we had. Victor provided us with restaurant recommendations, arranged for taxis, and provided entertainment suggestions. He is extremely friendly and helpful.

We would definitely recommend this apartment to anyone who wants to have a great experience in "old" Barcelona.

Absolutely delightful time...perfect for 4 of us

  • 5 of 5
This place is truly wonderful--up high, overlooking a charming walking street, nearby wonderful restaurants, the Born area, a huge delightful market, everything you might need on hand, including large refrigerator, dishwasher, 2 bathrooms, and a washing machine with clothespins (on the deck!). Having stayed in other high-end VRBO places in Paris and Rome recently, I can say without a doubt that this is the best apartment we've ever had. The owner-Victor-is an absolute gem, having had to deal with our daughter's lost luggage (Air France, what can I say?) in an expert and timely way (thanks Victor!), and even replacing our feather pillows immediately with excellent new fiber ones the next day after we inquired about it (due to allergies). I cannot say anything better about this place--it fit the four of us adults nicely, and the layout even allows for some privacy, which is yet an extra bonus. The remodeled place has a distinctly "Born" area feel to it, which reflects the architecture and culture of the surrounding area. Barcelona beaches, museums, and wonderful sights are just steps away. And, the place is amazingly quiet at night. I can't wait to go back.

Enjoyed the condo during Christmas 2013

  • 4 of 5
The condo was nice and very centrally located. Victor and Miguel were very helpful with information. The only cons I would point out are 1) stairs - we were on the 3rd floor and the stairs were steep so I was a bit out of breath going up them every day. Might be something you want to think about if you do have trouble with that. 2) smoke from cigarettes from street bothered me though it didn't bother my husband or 2 kids. 3) needed more television options. They was maybe 8 basics channels. Also, they did have a DVD player but it would not play our American DVDs. 4) better wi-fi - they did have it but the signal wasn't always good. These were just things that we noticed and thought might be important to others however, our total experience was very GOOD. Victor reserved some wonderful restaurants for us and he and his dad were full of good information about the area. He also took us to the airport for a reasonable fee. Lots to do. Nice Condo!

Owner's Response: Thanks Maureen for your nice comment. We are glad that you like our unit and your experience was so good :)) The flat is very centrally located just a few steps to the main sightseeings of Barcelona. The apartment is located on a SECOND floor (Though the apartment level is called first there is a level below called principal. ITS NOT ON A THIRD FLOOR). The building is part of the Old town and it dates 350 Years ago. Most of the flats at the Old town have no elevator. However the building has a much better than the average stairs at the Old town.
The flat is located at a very nice pedestrian street. There is no smoke from cars I believe the smoke from cigarettes its difficult to get to the second floor plus the people smoking do not do it just below the flat but moving while walking o the street. However we understand that some people that is more sensitive to smoke.
We offer ONLY HIGH SPEED INTERNET. The connexion is fast and the TV is connected to internet which means that through internet TV its possible to get English channels and other language channels. The wifi is powerful enough to download or stream any program. There is another connection available from the flat below. If this connection is set on the laptop due to the distance of the router its slower but the connection at the apartment is Real high speed.
The DVD is standard European. Due to the Copyright DVD builders do not offer the possibility to play DVDs from another region. We are sorry but we are not able to do anything about that. I will make sure to leave some DVDs as this might be the best option.
Again thanks for choosing us to stay in Barcelona. I apology for not being able to show up due to the family emergency that I had.
Best regards

VERY central

  • 5 of 5
Property as listed: clean, modern, well maintained and VERY central.
An excellent location for walking to all the major tourist sites, we even walked to La Sagrada Familia and Guell Park.
Payment transactions were easy and all email correspondence were clear and informative.
The co owner, Victor, was pleasant and helpful with excellent English.
He provided a personal airport pick up and arranged airport returns with a local company which proved reliable.
I thoroughly enjoyed my vacation and would definitely stay in this property again.
