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

What a great pleasure it was, to stay in this apartment.It's more than you expect from renting. Really everything was there. Also a nice roofterras! We found a great fruitbasket with a lot of fresh fruits and a nice bottle of wine on the table. All the necessaries for making a breakfast in the fridge!The host is so nice and make you feel at home. Raul will give you any information you want.

He even picked us up from the airport and on the day we were leaving, he was able to bring us to the airport. What else do you want...

We will recommend this apartment to anyone wo wants to have a great time in Barcelona!

Great location and wonderful host!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have rented many VRBO rentals in recent years. Raul went above and beyond in the service he provides to guests. He picked us up at the airport. He came back the next day and gave us valuable information to make our stay easier and more enjoyable. The location of the apartment is great. It is in a very safe neighborhood and close to everything, including great cafes, grocery stores and metro stops. We would highly recommend renting this property.

Clean, organized & great location

  • 5 of 5

Raul was a great host. He picked us up at the airport and even waited a very long time for us to get our luggage since the entire plane's baggage was not on the plane.

The apartment had a large fruit basket that lasted us for our 5 nights, the fridge had essentials (milk, juice, butter, jam, beer, water, etc.) which was helpful when you first arrive. The location was great for walking, buses, and sightseeing venues. The apartment is quiet and the roof top patio was

a nice place to hang out.

Our suggestion would be for the microwave to have instructions on a card in English for those of us who do not speak Spanish. Also a plasticized card by the telephone with contact information of Raul & Carmen just in case the business card goes missing.

We would definitely recommend Raul & Carmen's apartment. They go above and beyond what is expected. It was a wonderful stay.

Fantastic Stay

  • 5 of 5

Spent 9/11 through 9/14 having a wonderful time in Barcelona, the people, the restaurants and the sites. However, the most fantastic experience of all was renting Raul's and Carmen's great apartment. Their apartment was perfect in every respect. Immaculately clean, great location, every appliance and utensil provided including receiving a beautiful food basket and a couple of beers in the fridge. Also, having a rooftop terrace is such an added bonus compared to any hotel room.

Where in the world, will the rentor pick you up at the airport and take you to the cruise port. Just a side light, be careful hanging any clothes on the clothesline, we lost two towels. Thanks Raul and Carmen for making our stay fantastic!
