Excellent apartment just as advertised

  • 5 of 5

Everything about this rental was entirely satisfactory. The advance arrangements and payment were smooth. We were greeted as planned by Pedro who gave us a complete introduction to the apartment. Pedro and his wife live across the hall so were always available. The apartment is just as shown in the pictures online and has a magnificent view over the city. It's location is ideal - on a main thoroughfare, on the metro line and within walking distance of the Rambla in one direction and Barcelona Sants train station in the other. We used the metro to visit the Sagrada Familia and Guell Park. The apartment itself is well equipped. Even though it is on a main and very busy street the apartment, being on the ninth floor, is quiet. So, I happily recommend this apartment and would certainly rent it again.

As others have said: great apartment, excellent location

  • 5 of 5

I don't spend a lot of space repeating what others have said about the many positive aspects of this apartment; it's all true. The clothes washer worked well and the large drying rack made it easy to dry clothes in the spacious living/dining room or on the large, airy balcony when the weather was clear and dry (which is was the entire week of our visit). The little dressing room/closet between the bedroom and bathroom has plenty of space for clothes, although another rod for hangers would be nice.

The location, as noted, could hardly be better with a Metro stop and the end of the block at an Aerobús stop (half-hour ride to the airport) just a block away. The street, Gran Via de les Corts Catalanes, is one of the longest, widest, and busiest in town, but with the windows closed the apartment was pleasantly quiet. We found it best to leave the place open to catch the breeze during the day and then close it up at night and use the small but efficient air conditioner at night to make sleeping easier (our experience was that nights were much humid than days).

The Internet connection could be excruciatingly slow later in the evening but was OK most of the time.

Marta was a gracious hostess and very helpful. When we return to Barcelona, this is definitely our first choice.

Schöne Wohnung mit toller Aussicht

  • 5 of 5

Wir wurden sehr freundlich von Marta empfangen und durften am Abreisetag sogar unser Gepäck noch in der Wohnung stehen lassen. Die Wohnung hatte alles, was man eventuell für einen Urlaub brauchen könnte, war sauber, das Bett bequem und vom Balkon aus hatten wir einen schönen Blick über die Stadt.

In der Nähe gibt es zahlreiche Cafes, Läden und Restaurants.

Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt.

Perfection!

  • 5 of 5

Marta & Pedro (& their adorable son) were very helpful and friendly. Every bit of information they provided was extremely helpful and accurate. They were right across the hall and offered their assistance for anything we needed. 1 of our children is only 1 and they provided a stroller (an extra of theirs) so that we didn't have to travel with one and we were able to get around Barcelona much better. They were not bothersome but it was nice to know they were close to us. The apartment was enough room for our family of 2 adults and 2 kids, under age 4.The terrace was more spacious than we expected and gave way to the view that is advertised. What isn't stated is that the windows, around the apartment, also allow you to see the beautiful view. The apartment was wonderful and we would certainly stay there again. The apartment is in the city which made us pretty central to many things that we were able to walk to.

The metro (subway) is right on the corner, of the apartment, and was a very fast and easy way to get around. Definitely get the 10 trip pass and share with your traveling companions. Or you can get passes with more trips, depending on your needs. The Magic Fountain of Montjuic is a fun attraction, whether you have kids or not. Our personal favorite place, for coffee, was Quin Cafe. It is right on the corner, by the metro stop. We loved their service and cafe con leche.

Everywhere we went we had a wonderful time and the people were always friendly. Just be prepared to pay more for a soda than a beer lol. Also, they take their time, so if you sit down to eat, don't expect to have someone checking on you every few minutes.We recommend seeing the Cathedral of Barcelona. You can get inside for free, and there are no words for how beautiful it is. There's not enough space to say all the wonderful things about the apartment, the city, the country, or the people. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay!

Wonderful place in great neigbourhood

  • 5 of 5

We just spent 10 nights in this lovely appartment that is exactly as it looks in the photos -- very clean, bright, and well equipped. Marta and Pedro and their beautiful little boy live across the hallway. They are helpful, charming and discreet -- wonderful hosts. The neighbourhood is great -- full of bakeries, cafés, and tapas bars frequented by the locals. The airport bus stops right across the boulevard and the metro is only steps from the door. Still, it is easy to walk to the tourist areas in 20-30 minutes.

Tips:

Use the BCN coupon books for discounts such as half-price-second-ticket to the night tour of the Pedrera (worth 15 €).

Buy the 10 ride metro ticket for only 9€95 that can be shared i.e. Less than one euro per trip on the metro and bus (valid for 75 mins.). One person uses it and goes through the turnstile then passes it to the other person to use! Chic!

Favourite Tapas place called Bilbao on the square in front of the Cathedral: 1€70 for any of the pnxtos.

Try to get to the Jazz Si club just 800 m away near the Saint Antoni market. Fabulous flamenco night in a jampacked room which is part of a music school. Check it out on TripAdvisor. One of our best nights in BCN.

Only one caveat re the apt. IF you are noise sensitive: the old elevator is absolutely charming with its wooden doors and glass, BUT it can be noisy. Being on the 9th floor is great, having an elevator is a bonus, but it comes with some noise.

Great home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed a week in this great apartment. The location is just perfect for metro,buses and tourist spots. We've been telling all our friends and family about it. It's very spacious,clean and modern, has everything you would need (even a latte machine for those coffee lovers!). Loved the terrace views though in November was a bit too cold to sit outside. Marta and Pedro are absolutely gracious and helpful. Always available but never intruding. Would definitely recommend this place.
