Fantastic place!!

  • 5 of 5

This is a great apartment in a convenient location in Barcelona! My husband and I were there for 3 nights. We walked everywhere. However, there's good transportation near the apartment if needed. Raul is amazing! The best host ever! Everything we read about him and more. He picked us up at the airport and drove us around the city for a quick tour! When we got to the apartment we had a welcome fruit/wine basket waiting for us! He gave us maps, sites and restaurant suggestions. Raul is so genuinely nice! It made me feel so much better to have him as a contact in a city that we had never been before. I recommend this place to anyone who wants a nice apartment with a great host in Barcelona!

Best Ever!

  • 5 of 5

We have rented numerous times from VRBO and have had many spectacular experiences. However, this property stands apart for the extraordinary hospitality of its owners and hosts, Raul and Carmen Duran. The apartment is in a great location in a relatively quiet area of the Eixample, with some good neighborhood restaurants and very easy access to the Metro, the Barcelona Sants train station, and the museums of Montjuïc. The apartment is nicely appointed with a small but modern and well-equipped kitchen, a queen bed in the main bedroom, and a twin bed with trundle in a smaller second bedroom, most appropriate for 1 person but able to hold 2 in a pinch. The best part of the apartment is the large terrace, a lovely place for cocktails, meals, or just soaking up the sounds of the city.

Upon arrival, Raul picked us up at the airport and gave us a helpful tour of the city on our way to the apartment, stopping near the top of Montjuïc for a beautiful vista. In the apartment, a lovely fruit basket and several other groceries were already waiting for us, and Raul took the time to explain many aspects of the city, including the best ways to access the Metro, good restaurants, and sites to see. Raul and Carmen are simply lovely. They are kind and engaging and feel like old friends within minutes of meeting them.

While this is not the most luxurious apartment out there, it is very comfortable and very reasonably priced. The location can't be beat (especially if you don't want to be right in the middle of the noise and bustle, yet still want to still be close to all the sites) and the thoughtful hospitality of the hosts makes for a really special and memorable experience. We will definitely be back and will recommend this location to all of our friends. Thank you, Raul and Carmen, for helping us make such wonderful travel memories!

The only place we stay when in Barcelona!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 3 weeks in March and it was

our 3rd stay in 2 years. It is the only place we consider staying when in Barcelona for more than 1 night. Raul and Carmen are outstanding hosts who provide excellent hospitality. There is a welcome basket with wine and lots of extras like starter coffee, drinks, juice etc in the refrigerator/kitchen. The apt is in an excellent location with easy access to aerobus, bus and metro lines. The grocery store is 1 1/2 blocks away. Raul takes us to and from the airport if his work schedule permits. If it is your first time he takes you on a tour to orient you to the city. He even printed our boarding passes. We had relatives with us this time so we even used the trundle bed in the 2nd BR and it was very comfortable. The bathroom was upgraded since our last visit and a shower unit with glass doors replaced the tub/shower unit. It was a nice upgrade for us with the rain shower head and hand held option too. There is an elevator in the bldg and you have access to the roof terrace. Excellent options for restaurants right on the street including a bakery across the street. An ATM on the same block for easy access to euros. You can read all the other 5 star reviews and feel comfortable you have found a great location and host! We tell everyone we know about this apt when they are coming to BCN. Roger and I enjoy the friendship we have with Raul & Carmen. We travel full time and rent apts around the world. It is like coming home each time we come back to Barcelona! We are sure you will feel the same!

Great apartment with a wonderful owner.,

  • 5 of 5

The location of the apartment is very good, 5 min walk to Placa Espanya, 15 min with the bus to Sagrada Familia or Placa Catalunya, or you can walk to two blocks to metro station. The neighborhood is safe and has plenty of restaurants, bars, bakeries, etc, Also very close to the apartment it is supermarket. The apartment itself it is on the last floor of the building(has elevator) and it facing the courtyard which makes it very quiet during the night. The bathroom is modern and the kitchen has all you need to cook meals if you want to.

The owner Raul, was very responsive to all our questions regarding the apartment. He also drove us from airport to the apartment free of charge. In the apartment was waiting for us a fruit basket with a bottle of wine as a welcome gift and the fridge has a few basic items so you can relax a few hours without going to supermarket. He gave us a wealth of information about the city highlights and how to get there about the neighborhood restaurants and general information to make the most of our time in the Barcelona.

Thank You Raul for all your help.

The Place to stay in Barcelona!

  • 5 of 5

Can't say enough about this wonderful property and the more than helpful hosts! The apartment was very clean, comfortable and in a great location. It matched it's description and more. The nieghborhood is within walking distance to many of Barcelona's must see sights and easy access to others by Metro or bus close by. Our hosts Raul and Carmen set the standard for super hosts! Raul picked us up at the train station and proceeded to give us a brief driving tour of the city. When we arrived at the apartment Raul took the time to explain the workings of the apartment, transportation and direction for local sights and restaurants. To our delight there was a basket of fruit and bottle of wine along with other basic needs like coffee, tea, condiments, juice and milk to get us started. We don't think you can find a better rental in Barcelona for the price. Would defiantly stay again and highly recommend Raul and Carmen's place to anyone visiting Barcelona. Thank You Raul (El Rey) and Carmen for a most wonderful stay! Hope to see you again, Kevin and Theresa!

Raul's place

  • 5 of 5

It is a pleasure to write a review for Raul's place

It was perfect, from the moment we arrived at the airport, Raul was there to pick us up, showed us the city, Montjuic and olímpico city, gran via and more. Arriving at his place, the apartment was super clean, very cozy, spacious, beautiful bath and kitchen.

We were presented with a wonderful fruit and wine basket, water, milk and crackers, coffee, tea and other items. Very thoughtful. We travel a lot and only stay at places like this, but not even once we had such amazing experience with our landlords. Raul goes beyond what's is expected to make sure his guests are completely satisfied.

Raul took his time and gave us 2 maps and mark down all the places we should go, the location of his unit was the best part, close to the metro, Las ramblas, las arenas, and much more.

We did a lot walk from there.

I strongly suggest booking his place.

I would definitely go back to his place on my next trip to Barcelona.

I can keep on writing but it will never be enough to express my satisfaction.

I wish there would be more Raul's and Carmen around.

Lilian and Marcos
