Nice, clean condo
The condo is very clean, close to La Sagrada Familia, about 15 min walk. La Pedrera house about 20 min. It is in a quiet neighborhood. If you like to shop, then it is little farther from major shopping areas, unless you don't mind to walk about 25 min to La Rambla. The owner's and management very accomodating and responsive to all our questions and requests.
Property manager was very good. She arranged a taxi for us for our trip to the airport!
Review of Negre
It is very close to La Sagrada Familia but a 30 min walk to the top of La Rambla. The French doors are lovely but be aware it was too noisey to have them open, at any time. There was only one bed pillow each and poor quality. It was very roomy for 2.
Perfect location to Explore Barcelona
The communication and arrival instructions were so very easy! The apartment has a great elevator to carry luggage and yourself up if you do not feel like walking stairs. Building and surround area is clean and centrally located. We felt very safe walking everywhere. Great food places on left side of Joan Arc walking down to the Arc de Triumph! Also, FatTire Tours (bicycle) are great!you can get an e-bike for additional 10 Euro on tour. Apartment was comfortable and clean. Apartment is minimal and looked larger in the pictures . The beds were ok but the main bedroom large bed is actually two single beds that slide apart when sleeping on them. It only came with a large blanket which was too small when beds pulled apart. I would offer additional towels as only 1 per person was provided and could use an extra. Also, a fan would have been very nice to have as we could not get A/C to work. Thank you again.
The property is located in a central
Location and all tourist attractions are a short cab ride away. Nice natural light and decent decor. Although street is noisy the 4th floor makes it less so, the balcony has glass windows that can be closed to reduce noise.
We stayed for 4 days, and we thought they could have provided more basic stuff like toilet paper- we had to buy some on the last day, also some shampoo and bath soap would have been nice. There is a washer dryer but no dishwasher so we had to hand wash everything. The instructions also asked us to wash all dishes and take trash to the other side of the road on the last day so allow some time for that. I thought that the bed was just ok, the sheets could have been nicer. The apartment was fairly clean but we still found a couple of items left by the previous people.
There is a nice rooftop terrace that will be great in the summer evenings. There is an elevator in the building so we did not have to lug up our bags up 4 floors.
Overall, we enjoyed our stay and would not hesitate to recommend this apartment for 2-3 people. Apartment can fit 4-5 people but there is only one bathroom and it is really tiny, barely any place to stand in there so be aware.
Quaint, close to everything
I loved my stay at this apartment in Barcelona. It's a close walk to attractions like La Sagrada Familia, Gothic Quarter, and Arc de Triomf. It's also close to bus lines and easy to get a cab to anywhere in the city. There are also great restaurants and bars nearby.
The apartment was clean and comfortable. I enjoyed the enclosed balcony since it's still pretty cool in the evenings. I'm a woman who visited Barcelona alone and the apartment and building were very safe and secure. The tub was very small and some instructions on how to use the washing machine/dryer would have been helpful, but overall I thoroughly enjoyed my stay and will book again on my next visit to Barcelona.
