Barcelona vacation

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Chelo's apartment on our recent visit to Barcelona, it is perfectly located to walk to most every attraction you can think of. The apartment is very well maintained and out fitted with everything you may need during your stay. Chelo was a great host and was there to answer any question we had. We really enjoyed our stay in this little gem...

Wonderful find

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Chelo's apartment for 5 nights. Loved every.minute of it. Chelo. Met us the first day and gave us the rundown of shops, metros etc. when we needed advice of mailing parcels , storing our luggage and getting a taxi to the airport she was very responsive and helpful. Her apartment is new, clean, fully equipped and very homey.it has an air conditioner and an elevator! I would definitely stay there again and will recommend it to my friends visiting g Barcelona.

Great location for everything!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, daughter, and I stayed here for 4 days. The apartment was very centrally located and close to a metro stop. It was a nice, quiet neighborhood with a supermarket and good restaurants nearby. The apartment itself was very comfortable with A/C and good internet and a lift! It came well-equipped with everything you could need.

Chelo was wonderful! All responses came very quickly from her and she even arranged for a cab to take us to the airport at 4:30am at the end of our stay! It was our first time using VRBO, but it won't be the last!

I would highly recommend staying here at Chelo's place!

Owner's Response: Thank you L. for your nice comment. I am glad to know you enjoyed your stay in Barcelona. You discovered the Eixample neighbourhood and the most important spots in city centre very closed by to the apartment. It was very useful for you as a base to discover the city. I tried to help you before and during your stay. Best wishes, Chelo.

Modern, quiet and good location.

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is in very good condition and has a nicely stocked kitchen. The windows have electric metal shades on the outside so it stays dark in the bedrooms when they are down. We slept really well here. Chelo, the owner, is very professional, responsive and friendly. The building is very quiet. La Sagrada Familia is beautiful and within walking distance. The Barcelona subway is very easy to use and the trains are very frequent. We are a family of 4 (2 teens) and the apartment worked very well for us.

Wonderful place to stay in Barcelona

  • 5 of 5

This is our first trip to Barcelona with two teenagers.

The apartment is at the perfect location for us, near to the Ciutedalla park where we could continue our daily jog, and within walking distance to El Born and the different key areas. It is close to the metro station and grocery store, so it is located at the nice and safe area. It is pretty quiet while close enough to the main area in Barcelona.

The apartment itself is in a modern building and equipped with all the equipment that will make your stay comfortable: internet, washing machine and A/C. There are four of us, and there are 2 beds, a queen and two twins so it was the perfect size for our family. The apartment is spacious and well maintained.

Chelo herself is a very gracious host, she was waiting for us when we got there and gave us a detail information about the surrounding area and where to go.

This is the place where we definitely going to come back when we are coming back to Barcelona.

Wonderful place, wonder proprietor

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to Barcelona and our first VRBO. We were going on a cruise, which isn't exactly immersing yourself in a culture, and wanted something more intimate for our pre-cruise stay. This property filled the bill.

Chelo was exceptionally responsive, and i can't overstate how helpful she was in terms of providing us information as to how to get from the airport to the property, and ideas as to the nature of the neighborhood. She was fantastic.

When you stay in a hotel, you are generally either isolated at a resort, or far too into the thick of things. You are not in the real world. This property is in a nice, quiet neighborhood. There was a grocery store around the corner so we could get a few supplies, a pharmacy two doors away, and breakfast and tapas places within a 2 minute walk in any direction. It is a genuine living, breathing neighborhood as opposed to a Potemkin's village of facades and kitsch. The metro station is a couple minute walk, Sagrada Famila about 20 minutes, Las Ramblas about the same. We never bothered with cabs or the metro. As we were going on a cruise, the more walking the better.

The apartment isn't huge, but it's enormous compared the tiny rooms typical to hotels on Las Ramblas. We had friends in a hotel room so small you had to shuffle sideways on each side of the bed or climb in from the bottom. Not for us. The beds were comfy, the kitchen well equipped, and it had a great shower with plenty of hot water. All the weird little things you might need (cork screw, wine glasses, etc) are provided. It was exceptionally clean, and it is obvious that Chelo takes pride in it. We stayed with another couple, and we had plenty of space. One caveat, it would work better for a family of four vice two couples; a single bathroom can be tricky for even the best of friends.

The ONLY thing I would recommend is adding another chair to the living room. The couch was nice, but a little more seating would be welcome.

So...great place, nice location, amazing proprietor, and a price equal or lower than a tiny hotel room. You will be very happy.
