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.

Charming, convenient apartment - home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We cannot say enough about Raul and Carmen's apartment in Barcelona. If you truly want to feel like you're living in the city, this is the place to stay. The apartment is spacious and convenient to everything - you can walk practically everywhere, even to Sagrada Familia - but what makes the experience special are the owners. Raul picks up his guests at the airport, and there is a slew of small but memorable touches - a fruit basket (since we were there for New Year's, ours included traditional grapes for our family); maps; directions; and tips. There is a supermarket nearby and several good restaurants. Raul is always available via chat and was very helpful during our entire stay. The fact that he and his family live in the building is a big plus. At the end, we felt like we were part of the neighborhood. We highly recommend this accommodation to anyone spending time in Barcelona!

Home owners were very helpful. Gave us a tour of Barcelona after meeting us at the Cruise ship. There was a fruit basket and well equipped kitchen. Several good local restaurants with in steps of the apartment. Good location, we walked to museum and the Gothic quarters.

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 !!!!
