The location of the apartment is fantastic to visit and enjoy Barcelona, and after that, you can have a comforting rest with your children or your partner because it´s incredibly quiet.

What makes this apartment unique

It is a quiet sunny place in the city center. It´s very well communicated and you can walk to the main sights in town. There are a lot of a good restaurants, markets and supermarkets if you prefer to cook at home.

Barcelona Fair is close to the apartment.

It takes only 15 minutes to the airport by taxi or airport bus, and 5 minutes to Sants station where you can take the High-Speed Train (AVE) and go to Madrid in two and a half hours.

We now feel like we have family in Barcelona

  • 5 of 5

I simply cannot say enough wonderful things about Raul and his apartment in Barcelona! Raul picked us up from the airport, greeting us as soon as we had our bags. He gave us an instant sense of security and comfort! We were incredibly jet lagged, as our two children immediately fell asleep in his car. While they slept, he drove us to many attractions and sights! Following our mini tour, we arrived at his super comfortable, well located apartment. He gave us maps and suggestions on how to navigate the city. Additionally, the apartment was well stocked with dishes, utensils, etc. An extravagant basket of delicious fruit, milk, juice toast, butters and jams were all available! We had breakfasts with these items, enjoying the lovely terrace. There was even a bottle of wine to greet us!

We were spoiled by Raul. He made dinner reservations for us, drove us places when he was available, and even helped me find a purse I had left behind at a shop!

We honestly feel like we have a relative in Barcelona! Our family had a wonderful stay.

Our stay in Barcelona was amazing! Raul was the perfect host and the apartment was just righ for us.

  • 5 of 5

Raul was a gracious and generous host. From picking us up from the airport and dropping us at the port when we left. A mini tour on our arrival to get our bearings and time spent going through maps and recommendations. He printed off tickets for us and even had a gorgeous gift basket of fruit to welcome us.

Would highly recommend. Raul is awesome.

Fantastic apartment in Barcelona

  • 5 of 5

Owner Paul Duran picked us up at the airport, drove us on a mini-tour of the Barcelona then spent a least 90 minutes with us in the apartment showing us the best way to travel to points of interest. He provided detailed maps with bus stops and routes clearly indicated. The apartment itself was clean and well-decorated. All the dishes and utensils we could possibly need were provided. In our four days there, we could barely finish the huge fruit basket that he provided upon our arrival. After our stay, he took us back to the airport. Great apartment! Fabulous host!

This apartment offers the comforts of Home Away from Home, thanks to the Owners Raul & Carmen

  • 5 of 5

Choosing accommodation for our holiday was like "picking a needle in a haystack" as the expression goes. Well we hit the Jackpot!! I can say the apartment was spacious, spotless, bright, well equipped with most everything you would need and in the most excellent location.

The rooftop terrace a bonus space to still enjoy the outdoors after a busy day as a tourist. Oh and the elevator / lift was a lifesaver after a day on our feet.

Now I will tell you the difference between this and other accommodation is Raul. Prior to even leaving on our trip he made us well informed on sights to see, dining options, transit options and gave us the peace of mind that we had made a good choice. Raul spent endless amounts of his personal time to ensure our stay in Barcelona got off to a good start and he did not drop the ball, going out of his way from start to finish of our stay. Thank you Carmen and family and a very warm appreciative Thank you to Raul for being YOU and giving us a wonderful experience with VRBO !!

Great apartment in Barcelona

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful 6 night stay at Raul and Carmen's apartment in the Eixample district of Barcelona. It started with Raul picking us up at the airport and then giving us a driving tour around the city. When we arrived at the apartment there was a basket of fruit, some provisions in the fridge and a bottle of wine waiting for us....amazing! The next morning Raul spent another hour with us going over the main attractions in the city. The apartment itself was spotlessly clean and had all the amenities we needed for a comfortable stay. The bonus was the roof top terrace which we used frequently to watch the sunset. The location is in a residential district, about 20 minutes walk to Placa de Catalunya and the Ramblas. It is also close to a couple of Metro stops and bus routes. There are lots of good, reasonably priced restaurants in the neighbourhood (Raul gave us some good recommendations). Overall I would say that this is one of the best apartments I have ever stayed in.

Comfortable apartment - great location - exemplary owner!

  • 5 of 5

Raul Duran and his wife Carmen are the owners of this apartment - live in the same building - and go to extraordinary lengths to make their guests feel welcome, comfortable and thoroughly oriented to the many attractions of Barcelona generally and the beautiful, historic Eixample neighborhood where the apartment is located in particular. The apartment should work well for single travelers, couples, two or three friends, or families of 3 or 4. The extra touches included Raul meeting us at the train station; taking us on an informative tour by car of several Barcelona landmarks and beautiful vistas; a basket of fruit, bottle of wine and refrigerator stocked with beer, water, juice, butter and other amenities; coffee and a single-serve maker - all awaiting us at the apartment; Raul's excellent suggestions for and directions to restaurants, bakeries, groceries, atms, and the like in the neighborhood; Raul's mapping of bus and metro routes to major attractions - and recommendations for places of interest. The apartment is in walking distance of many points of interest - and many of the restaurants Raul recommends - his recommendations were 6 for 6 right on with us - are within a block or two of the apartment. I heartily recommend Raul and Carmen's apartment - and commend them unreservedly for taking care of their business and guests with such generosity, courtesy and kindness.
