Great location

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I recently stayed in this studio. The location couldn't have been more perfect. Just blocks from one of the main squares where you can easily get main buses and trains - as well as great walking to all the sights in the old quarter. The studio is very quiet and in a safe area - we walked everywhere and enjoyed the incredible restaurants, cafes etc - all within walking distances.

The hosts were very pleasant in arranging our visit - had someone meet us to let us in and had us call to make sure everything went well.

We would definitely stay here again.

Owner's Response: Dear A. C.: Thanks a lot for your very kind comments. We work hard to provide the best possible service to our guests. However...there is still a lot to do, as apartment require a dynamic management and continuous investment. We want to improve a few things in our accommodations (we will let you know, as soon as everything is ready). However...there is one thing we cannot improve: the perfect location of our apartments (as mentioned in many of the comments left by guests). We do know that our apartments are small treasures just in the heart of Barcelona, but in a very quite and safe place. Thanks again and kindest regards. EyA

Plaza Catalunya

  • 4 of 5

We stayed in Barcelona for 5 days and were happy with our stay. The apartment is well located and both public transport and the stores can be reached very quickly. It is also handy for an airport transfer as the shuttle stops only 200m from the place.

We had a great weather for the whole week and went every day to the the beach (Barcelonetta). It is a bit further away, but on a good day it is possible to walk there through the narrow streets of the old city centre.

The apartment is renovated, well equipped and clean. We cooked our dinner several times. The nights were rather hot, but we got some good sleep nevertheless. Since we were exhausted from the day we went to bed early and could still hear people walking on the floor, but it was not bad. Otherwise the area was quiet in the night.

Last but not least, Elena and Alex were very helpful and adapted to our arrival and departure times. All in all we had a very nice holiday and would recommend it to everyone.

Owner's Response: We appreciate all comments coming from our guests, so thanks a lot. Please feel free to let us know what could have we done to reach a 5/5 testimonial, as this is our goal in all cases. Any detailed information on how to improve our accommodation service is always greatly appreciated. We hope that our early check-in option as well as the easy check-out were convenient, and that the information provided regarding our national holiday in Catalonia (Sep. 11th) was also useful. Thanks again and we hope we can accommodate you again in our place in the near future.

Owner's Response: It is a pleasure to accommodate guests like you. The booking process was easy going with her. The new payment platform worked perfectly. The studio was left in perfect condition, clean and well ordered (we really appreciate it). Your stay happened without a hitch. We are planning some new refurbishing at the studio and we hope we can even improve our accommodation service. Thanks a lot, and we hope to see you soon in Barcelona

Thank You for great vacat...

  • 5 of 5

Thank You for great vacation! Location is just perfect - center of city life! Almost everything what You might need is prepared in the appartment (I was missing only iron). The only thing a bit not comfortable for me was the conditioner above the bed. If to switch it on during night might be to cold, or stale air if it is off. If I ever come back to Barcelona, I will stay here for sure.

Bel monolocale a due passi dalla Rambla

  • 5 of 5

Io e il mio ragazzo abbiamo soggiornato in questo monolocale dal 3 al 10 luglio 2016. Confortevole e della grandezza giusta per una coppia. Il proprietario ci ha accolti benissimo e addirittura ci ha anche prelevati dall'aeroporto quando siamo arrivati. Il nostro volo è arrivato con 5 ore di ritardo purtroppo (VUELING mai più!!) quindi siamo arrivati molto oltre l'orario del check-in.

L'appartamento è ben situato e si trova a pochissimi passi dalla rambla. E' fornito di tutto ciò che serve per brevi soggiorni e pulitissimo.

Lo consiglio a tutti!

Owner's Response: Dear Francesca. Thanks a lot for your kind comments. We have fully refurbished the studio (we have even fitted a washing machine) so now it is even better, and a great place to spend a longer period. Actually, we are renting it for longer stays (more than 31 nights). It was also a pleasure to have you in our place. Warm regards from Barcelona. EyA

- The Cathedral (2 minutes)

- Gothic and Romanic routes (1-2 minutes)

- Born Quarter and Sta. Maria del Mar temple (5-7 minutes)

- Beach (15 minutes / 2 underground stops).
