Best host! Great location! Wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

Raul was an exceptional host! He was great with communication leading up to our visit. Picked us up at the airport. Gave us a brief tour of Barcelona on the way back to the apartment. Shared many recommendations with us for nearby restaurants and attractions. Answered all of our emailed questions without hesitation. The apartment was clean and well appointed in a lovely residential neighborhood. We couldn't have asked for a better stay. Thank you for everything, Raul!

Everything about this property and the owner totally exceeded our expectations!

  • 5 of 5

Five stars aren't enough for this one!

The apartment is amazing, clean and well stocked with all the essentials. The private roof deck is an awesome extra!

That's just where it starts though! I've stayed at a bunch of places around the world, but the owners of this place really go above and beyond! They coordinated everything with us before we got to Barcelona and even helped us pick the best train from Marseille, where we were staying before. When we arrived, Raul was nice enough to pick us up at the train station, give us a driving tour of the city and take us to the apartment! He then gave us a detailed explanation of the city describing where everything is and how to get there. He even drew the best restaurants and sites on the map to make it easier to remember and find.

I can't say enough about how great this experience was! Thank you Raul and Carmen! Hope to see you again soon!

The property was extremely well maintained, clean and the hospitality the best.

  • 5 of 5

We highly recommend staying at this location. Raul & Carmen paid close attention to detail to ensure our stay in Barcelona & in the apartment was memorable. We have the fondest memories & new best friends. They provided detailed maps, recommendations for restaurants, activities & ensured we made it safely from the train to the apt and then to the cruise ship. This is a AAA, 10

Star experience...thank you so much for far exceeding our expectations.

Over the top Hospitality!

  • 5 of 5

As others have pointed out Raul and Carmen's apartment is in a great, quiet location with a coffee shop, 2 restaurants, a pharmacy, a pizza parlor, a food store, bus stops and a bakery all less than 2 blocks walking distance. Their apartment is equipped with EVERYTHING you would need and more! Their cleaner does a spotless job. The hospitality from Raul is like none other; I have never been picked up at the airport and driven to the cruise terminal, or given the time that Raul will spend with you to explain how to get to your desired tourist stops from anyone other VRBO host. He is there to accommodate your every need as his guest. What more can I and all his other reviewers say? Do not hesitate booking with him! Thank you Raul!

Wonderful Apartment & Hosts

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week in Barcelona this November & had a wonderful time. The city is very interesting & very safe. We visited just after the independence vote, however this did not affect our stay & we never felt uncomfortable walking in Barcelona.

The apartment is exceptionally clean, quiet, comfortable and well equipped (especially for cooking). Our hosts Raul & Carmen are very kind people who want to make the stay memorable. Raul picked us up from the train station & gave us a tour of the city (which really helped orientate us) before bringing us to the apartment. The apartment is very well located for seeing all the sites & Raul gives lots of information on transportation options, things to see & local authentic places to eat. Overall this was the best VRBO we stayed at and the kindest & most helpful hosts you will ever meet. Highly Recommend. Thanks Raul & Carmen
