Modern but with beautiful old features

  • 5 of 5

Great property, it is so beautiful wonderful area with a small square and lots of little stores, close to Gaudi's buildings. Queen bed is not plush but it is adequate.

Not a good place on cold weather days

  • 3 of 5

Very well located, very nice loft, but not properly furnished for cold days. The heater did not work properly, and oil heaters are not healthy.

Alejandro was very kind, and bought us extra comforters and another heater, but we already caught the cold.

They have an excellent taxi service to pick up us at the airport, for a reasonable price. They help bringing up the luggage to the 3rd floor, as there is no elevator.

The trash truck is very noisy at midnight every night.

Beautiful apartment. Great location.

  • 4 of 5

Overall, we really loved staying at the apartment in Barcelona. It is so beautifully designed, and the location couldn't be better: just 2 blocks off the main shopping drag (and near several awesome Guadi buildings), and also near a convenient metro stop. You can easily walk down to Las Ramblas and the old city. We went in November and it took two days for the apartment to actually warm up, so we were pretty uncomfortable until the heater did its job. The communication with Alejandro was excellent, but the gentleman who met as at the apartment (Michael) was not particularly helpful. We asked about a grocery store, and he told as about one 10 blocks away, but failed to mention the excellent one that was just around the corner. We also arranged to check out at 11:30 a.m. with him, but the cleaning lady showed up at 11:00, never having heard anything from him about the later time. Rather awkward. Another issue was the lack of helpful information in the apartment. Most apartments I have rented through HomeAway have guidebooks, maps, metro info, etc. to help strangers get their bearings and enjoy their stay a bit more. Other than an old (2009) Rick Steves book, there was no helpful information to be had. I am also used to a few more things provided in the apartment, like paper towels, some seasonings other than salt and pepper, some olive oil, etc. These are all things that I don't feel one should have to buy for a four-day stay. Also, if you rent this beautiful apartment, be aware it is on the fourth floor, with no elevator.

Great flat in a great location

  • 4 of 5

Apartment looks even better in person than in the photos, it has windows on two sides and lets in plenty of light and fresh air. Several of the windows are 9 feet tall and get a great cross-breeze after sunset. The original stone walls are unbelievable and coordinate nicely with the modern furniture and kitchen. Kitchen has most of what you'd need to cook for yourself if you'd like, even a dish washer.

The location is really quite perfect, several bars and restaurants nearby, some just around the corner from the apartment, yet you are a block or two away from the larger squares minimizing traffic noise and riff-raff. The streets the apartment faces are cleaner and nicer than most we saw in the center city.

The Metro is really only a few minutes walk, and even without the Metro it is no problem to walk to most of the major sites of the city.

Apartment is on the 3rd floor (or, 4th floor if you're from the US), with stairs and no elevator, so be prepared for a hike, especially with your luggage.

Over three days we saw two cockroaches in the apartment, two of the hugest cockroaches I've ever seen in my life. We killed them both and are not squeamish folks, but for the less hearty, be aware.

Awesome loft!

  • 5 of 5

I wholeheartedly recommend this loft. I come once a year to Barcelona for a few days and I always stay there – it feels like my home in Barcelona! It is beautifully and cleverly furnished. Everything thought so as to make you feel comfortable and relaxed. You've got everything, from wifi, to hairdryer, washing machine, wine glasses etc It is very well situated in the Gracia area so very close to great restaurants and shops. In addition, the owner is extremely helpful should you need any assistance during your stay. I will definitively come back next year!

Center of BCN, safety area, near metro station

  • 5 of 5

Location is perfect, just around 30 EUROS from the international airport to the apartment. Just about 5 mins by walk to Diagonal metro station. However, since there is no door in front of the shower place (just separate with a middle body height glasses), floor may getting wet. Everything and facilities are perfect! and the owner is really nice, we stay for a week and the feeling like home.
