Great location, wonderful apartment and thoughtful owners

  • 5 of 5

My children and I lived in Raul and Carmen's apartment for three weeks. I say lived because we really felt at home. From the moment we arrived Raul and Carmen were attentive and caring. They do not overlook any detail: from airport pick-up to a well equipped kitchen to comfortable linens. Every thing was perfect. Raul answers questions quickly and resolves problems in a timely and gracious manner. The sunny apartment is located in a residential neighbourhood with grocery shops and all necessary amenities. It is within a 30 minute walking distance of all major attractions in Barcelona, shorter if you use the excellent public transit system. Barcelona is a clean, safe and friendly city: we walked everywhere. I would return to this apartment tomorrow and definitely recommend it to anyone visiting Barcelona.

Lovely apartment in Barcelona

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough good things about staying in Raul's lovely apartment in Barcelona. Raul picked us up at the train station and took us around for a tour of the city. The apartment was decorated for Christmas with a small Christmas tree and decorations throughout. He gave us a fruit basket with wine, cookies and candy as well as stocking the refrigerator with beer, soft drinks, milk and juice. It was beyond our expectations and his hospitality made us feel so welcome. It was well situated to the metro and bus lines, but often we walked to places like the Gothic Quarter. He even drove us back to the train station when we left. He is a very kind and thoughtful person and I hope to keep in touch with him. It was perfect !!!!

Great apartment, exceptional owners

  • 5 of 5

I arrived to Barcelona expecting a great holidays and the apartment was the grace note to have an incredible vacation. It was not only about the perfect location, the good quality of the equipment at home or the facilities the owners gave us; it was the hospitality, attention and the constant help Raul and his family brought us too. The apartment is prepared in detail and is close from the most beautiful and famous places of Barcelona, the neighbourhood is quiet and there are a lot of supermarkets, shops and restaurants to enjoy the city without the need to go very far if you want to enjoy close home some days.

I'm already thinking about my next visit to Barcelona and it would be great to stay in this apartment again.

I absolutely recomend this house to have the best experience in Barcelona.

Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

Raul and Carmen

This property is a real find...location is perfect...the apartment is spotless and the owners go beyond to help make their home our home.

Great communications with Raul via emails and by the time you arrive in Barcelona you are made to feel like family.

The welcome basket and his tour of the city sets a tone for a wonderful vacation. This rental apartment is very quiet even though it is located on a busy street. An added attraction to this top floor secure building with an elevator also has an access to a beautiful terrace on the roof where we enjoyed some wine and cocktails.

I would return here in a heartbeat for the above reasons and for this couple's genuine interest in making their clients welcome.

I have stayed in many rentals all over the world but this rental is by far superior to any others I've stayed. I guarantee you stay will be restful and joy filled. Job well done. I certainly will share this gem with family and friends.

This apartment and its hosts deserve 6 stars!!!!

  • 5 of 5

All of the previous reviews do not exaggerate the warm and gracious hospitality that we too received from Carmen and Raul in Barcelona. Not only is the apartment well located in a lovely part of the city, Raul was able to retrieve us from the airport with 2 friends from the US and deliver us right to the apartment after a brief tour of the city en route. The apartment is extremely well appointed and a welcome basket with wine and a fridge with all the essentials made jet lag a brief inconvenience! After orienting us to the city with maps, directions, and lots of encouragement, we were able to spend the most delightful time in Barcelona, comfortable on the subway, bus, and walking to and from the local shoppes, bakeries and grocery store. Raul was very available to answer questions about different venues and the best times to go, the local cuisine and customs, along with a wonderful introduction to the history of Catalonia. We left Barcelona feeling refreshed (great sleeping!) and feeling that we had learned not only a lot about Barcelona and its art, architecture and role in history, but feeling renewed about the nurturing value of international friendships - a gift from our hosts Carmen and Raul.

It was great.

  • 5 of 5

Raul could not have been more helpful. He provided transportation from and to the train station, a beautiful fruit/wine basket, great maps and pointers, and anything else that we needed. His living in the same building as the rental is a plus. The apartment is great, well-stocked, and very convenient. We enthusiastically recommend it.
