Thanks for a comfortable stay. The apartment was great, central & well equipped. Thankfully the heating worked as it was cold and rainy. Thanks to the greeter for helping with any problem we had. We highly recommend it!!

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in Barcelona was enhanced by our stay in this comfy apartment. Lauren and Fernando were amazing every step of the way. Great communication before and after our stay. There was a heat wave in Barcelona during our stay and the icy cold air conditioning was a pleasure. The location is tops, near all major attractions and restaurants, yet quiet and calm at night. Thank you Lauren and Fernando for allowing us to enjoy your apartment.

Great Location & Comfortable Beds

  • 4 of 5

I very much enjoyed this location. It is surrounded by great restaurants, cafes & shopping. It is easy walking distance to most popular tourist sights & the metro. Or you can get a taxis right outside the door that will take you anywhere. But yet I felt like I was in a nice little neighborhood. If the city noise is too much a night just close all the wooded shutters.

The beds are comfortable and the apartment had everything we needed.

The owners and greeter were quick to respond to my inquiries.

I would have given it 5 stars but it needs a fresh paint job.

Wonderful location, perfect size

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Barcelona for five days with our two young kids, and this apartment was just right for us. It was a great location, walkable to many things and very close to the Verdaguer metro stop. The second bedroom with twin beds worked well for the kids, and we loved having a washer/dryer in the apartment and an elevator in the building (to give our tired legs a break after long days of walking around the city). Lauren and Fernando were very helpful in providing us all necessary information before we arrived, and the greeter, Eduardo, was also very nice and even helped us to store our luggage on our last day since our flight was not leaving until several hours after checkout time. Great experience over all!

Great Location

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this lovely apt. It was a short walk 8-10 min walk to the Sagrada Familia (which is exceptional) and the Passieg de Gracia. Be sure to make arrangements to tour the basilica prior to arriving in Barcelona. It tended to be noisy outside the apt on some of the evenings that we were there but this is not anything that the owners would be able to change. The location far out weighs the draw backs. We were often so tired from sightseeing during the day that we slept fairly well despite the noise. There were some written instructions in the home but additional notes on how to use the washer/heat/AC would have been appreciated. The maps were appreciated and there were several tour books on Barcelona that were able to use. Overall it was a positive experience.

Fabulous Apartment!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 2 nights in Sept 2012. Love this place! Cozy, clearn, comfortable. We slept in the front bedroom facing the street and slept just fine. It wasn't as noisy as described in other posts. We thought the kitchen, bath, extra bedroom were all very accommodating. The highlight for us was the rooftop deck. Oh my, just beautiful! As noted in other posts, yes, you need to be courteous to others in building, but that doesn't get in the way of enjoying a great city from the rooftop.

We rented bikes while in Barcelona and found it the best way to get around. We rented fold up bikes so we could fold and store in apartment for the night. The location of this apartment is in walking distance to most areas. We wanted to lap swim in the Olympic Pool and took a bus back (the 55) that dropped us right near the apartment.

I would highly recommend this apartment!!

Excellent accomodation - exactly as pictured and described

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in this apartment for a week at the end of August/early September 2012. I was visiting Barcelona for the first time with my husband and three year old son. From the very start, Lauren and her team were very easy to deal with - prompt communication over email, information and recommendations as needed. Payment was a breeze and there were no hassles with security deposits etc. The apartment is exactly as pictured but those of you are not familiar with the magic of the wide-angle lens, please be aware that certain spaces are smaller than you think looking at the pictures. In this case, the bathroom is pretty tight, particularly in trying to bathe a toddler. Every other room was perfectly sized for us. The building itself is lovely on the outside as well as inside. I loved the mosaic floors throughout the apartment. The balcony is as lovely as it looks and I was glad we chose to stay in an apartment facing the street. The downside, of course, is the street noise, which didnt bother us in the day but I found it impossible to sleep in the master bedroom after giving it a solid try on the first night. We improvised and huddled up in the second bedroom after that - not ideal but better than staying up all night. Sheets, towels etc provided were adequate even if a little tired looking through wear. My biggest disappointment was the kitchen ware. While I really enjoyed having a full kitchen for the duration of our stay, the pots and pans provided definitely left something to be desired. I did dislike how old and 'used' they looked. The terrace is lovely and actually bigger than it appears in the pictures. There is an issue with noise in this whole building though, so if you have three year old running around on the terrace, chances are the residents on the floor below are not going to be very happy. The location of the apartment worked well for us. My son loved playing in the little park near the metro station. Plus, we really felt like locals living in Barcelona.

All in all, we enjoyed our stay here and liked out experience working with Negre Apartments. I would recommend this apartment and will not hesitate to stay here again.
