Great apartment for a great price

  • 4 of 5

Amanda and her mom were very helpful with check-in & check-out. The location is right in El Raval which can be a little sketchy at night but the apartment is in walking distance to all attractions you would want to see in Barcelona. Overall would stay here again.

Charming apartment in ideal location

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at this charming apartment in the heart of El Raval. The apartment itself was just as advertised, and the owner was very responsive, making the logistics of our stay easy. The location was ideal, in a neighborhood that was itself lively and fascinating while also within easy walking distance of La Rambla and the Boqueria Mercado (7-10 minutes), the Gothic Quarter (10 minutes), Plaça Catalunya and shopping (10-15 minutes), Sant Antoni (7-10 minutes), Poble Sec (10-15 minutes), and the port (15 minutes). And close to multiple metro lines for those few destinations too far to walk to. Definitely recommended.

Nice place

  • 5 of 5

"We liked staying there. The flat was cosy and nice.We felt like at home. There was a room without a window which was cool enough if u like to sleep without being bothered by sunlight. The flat is at the center: u can reach las Ramblas within 5 minutes which was really cool! But it will take more than 15 minutes to reach the beach!!!!! The surroundings were cosmopolitan which frightened us at the beginning, but people there turned out to be nice. Some guys even sold us some food after they have closed the shop. There r a lot of grocery shops nearby where u can buy rather cheap food.

The hostess was really great: she explained everything to us and tried to help and answer all our questions. Thank u a lot!!!"

"It is a nice flat and when we arrived, Rosa - a very friendly person - was waiting for us, to give us the key. The metro wasn´t far away and in the evening we could reach a lot of places by walking. And even though the flat is in the centre, it is quiet. So, if we go to Barcelona again, we would like to stay there once again."
