BEAUTIFUL BARCELONA

  • 5 of 5
This is the most beautiful apartment we have ever stayed at. Right in the city centre with everything we needed on our doorstep. The apartment itself is beautifully furnished and really well looked after. Our meeter and greeter George was fantastic and showed us around and answered all our questions. He also showed us up to the roof terrace where we sipped cocktails as the sun went down. Truly a wonderful place to be, spacious and light with a feeling of luxury. We can't thank you enough! We loved it and the price was great too!

FABULOUS APARTMENT NEAR PICASSO MUSEUM

  • 5 of 5
In April 2012 5 of us stayed in this apartment which was extremely well located in the Ribeira district near the Picasso museum. The apartment was comfortable and only a very short walk to Jaume station. Sadly it was too cold to use the rooftop terrace as that would be delightful in warm weather. The apartment is located upstairs with no lift, which might be an issue for some, but not for us.

FOR THOSE THAT LIKE TO BE WHERE THE ACTION IS

  • 5 of 5
Location location location! Great place to stay. Loved the apartment and the area. So much to do. I felt very safe and the apartment was clean and as pictured.
Claire and Jordi were very professional and wonderful to work with. My husband and I are hoping to come back and stay a few more days in the future...
My daughter is studying abroad in Barcelona and this was a great place for our family to stay. Great restaurants and and places in every nook and cranny. This area is so bohemian and artsy. Love it!!!!

TOP-RATE MANAGEMENT AND APARTMENT !

  • 5 of 5
I am so happy my first impressions of the managers here made me decide to stay with them. Every dealing with Claire was fast and professional, not chatty, just everything I needed to know. She also offered advice on area and also sent me photos of the street when I had asked about area. I had originally booked a dif apartment with them but it was changed near arrival date, after discussing it of course, and was happy to find everything as promised.

Claire also arranged a wonderful driver service from airport which was so appreciated that evening!

This was my second trip to Barcelona and this apartment is FANTASTIC! Fantastic location, facilities, very safe, and very well kept. The only bad thing is now I am spoiled and only want to stay here :)

The apartment was very clean, HUGE, the kitchen is so well organized and stocked, comfy furniture and the most comfy bed yet after 6 weeks of Spain and France!

There is a secure safe, and the building is very quiet. I enjoyed the roof top patio a few times ... a nice bonus ! You hear a chorus of old church bells from this place.

One thing I must add for people on thier first visit to Barcelona though ~ dont expect the polished walls and streets of your modern home. I had been sent an email by another Canadian couple who had rented in the original apt building (dif agency just same building) and warned me to stay away. They sent photos of garbage in the street, rough hallways, and urine on the street. Well, I feel bad they first didnt book with someone as reliable as Claire & George. These buildings are old and often the entrances are a bit worn but wonderful apartments inside.Second, these apartments are in residential areas...locals put thier garbage out in bags and is picked up by morning. Third, it is the drunken tourist urinating in what looks like an alley. You will find that anywhere there are these idiots. The area is old, but kept very clean...dont be put off if you arrive at night and things looks a bit rough. This is normal and by morning, everything is clean and tidy.

This apartment is right around the corner from the Picasso museum and the Modern Art Museum !! The metro is literally a minute away and fantastic food and supplies so close. Less than 10 minutes to La Boqueria and chocolate street.

I am a middle aged solo female traveller and felt 100% safe and comfy here. I felt spoiled really. Fantastic apartment !! Fantastic management !

FAB APARTMENT IN AN UNBEATABLE LOCATION!

  • 5 of 5
Fab apartment with good sized rooms. Very clean and tidy. Excellent location within walking distance of many attractions, shops and restaurants. The street was a bit noisy at night but wasn't really a problem. Couldn't get up to the roof terrace as the door wouldn't open but we didn't spend long enough at the apartment to need this anyway. Would recommend to anyone looking for a good sized and well located apartment perfect for a group of tourists!

GREAT APARTMENT

  • 5 of 5
The apartment is perfectly situated within walking distance of many of the attractions you might want to visit, as well as shops, bars and restaurants. It is well furnished with 3 bedrooms and a large living/dining room area, with access to a lovely roof terrace. It is also very well air conditioned so it never feels too hot even when it's scorching outside. Highly recommended

The apartment is situated on the first floor in a beautiful old building tucked down one of the many narrow streets in the heart of the fashionable El Born. METRO: JAUME I is one minute walk. Surrounded by the best restaurants and bars in Barcelona and many unique boutiques and galleries, the area is ten minutes walk to the Port and the beach and ten minutes walk to the popular Ramblas and shopping. The Picasso & Textile museums are in the adjacent street. Small, intimate, friendly and funky, 'Born' has been has been transformed almost overnight into the stylish, in-vogue heart of the city with its soul set in the wide open, tree-lined Passeig del Born. At one end of the Passeig is an impressive metal and glass structure, the former Mercat del Born covered market, while at the other end is one of the most important Gothic churches in all Catalonia, The Santa Maria del Mar, if you get lucky you may just catch a wedding there.

Other Activities: Fine dining on your doorsteep.
