We choose this apartment to be our second home in Barcelona and with the arrival of Internet we begin to rent it for short periods.

What makes this apartment unique

For us is very important the light and the situation in Barcelona (quiet and safe neighbourhood, near the old town, very well communicated (even we are been very lucky to have the High Speed railway Station just 10 minute walking) and with all facilities at a walking distance

Armando Vizcaino, rented the apartment for 5 nights, leaving on July 1st.

  • 4 of 5

The apartment's kitchen was recently refurbished and looked fantastic. The location was excellent. We were six, two grandparents, daughter with husband and two grand children. The apartment's living space was very good but the bedrooms were small but manageable. We will rent it again. The owner received us on the first day and he was the type of person that I will do business with again.

Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5

I and a friend spent five comfortable days in the Alcaide apartment. Although our flight from Paris to Barcelona

was delayed due to labor union disputes, Natasha waited for us at the apartment and took us on a tour. The

Place was very clean with sunlight streaming into the living fact, the description of the apartment was

accurate. Communication with Señor Alcaide was prompt.

We especially liked the amount of space: two remodeled bathrooms and kitchen with three bedrooms. We were

able to wash and dry our clothes and use an American sized refrigerator that actually kept our food cold. The

apartment is located in a residential area within walking distance of las Arenas mall at Placa Espanya with

access to the subway, public buses and the airport bus. While walking to the mall one could stop in the Joan

Miro park and take pictures of the sculpture. The bus 27 stops directly across from the apartment building.

On the day of our arrival the elevator broke down. Natasha called Mr. Alcaide who spoke to the management.

Happily the elevator was back in working order by the time my friend and I had unpacked and decided to explore

the neighborhood. One surprise was the flat screen TV and the ability to change from Spanish to English if the

American programs were dubbed. We, two Americans, like very firm mattresses but two of the beds were too soft,

But Natasha explained that people prefer soft beds in Spain. Regardless, we had a great time and will recommend

the apartment to others. Thank you, Señor Alcaide.

Cute and convenient

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here at this little gem with my mother, aunt, and grandmother, and we all had an amazing time. It was quiet, comfortable, safe, and easy to get to all the attractions by metro. Two of the metro stations are a short walk of about 7 minutes. Also plaza de españa is not too far--about 15 minutes by foot. We greatly enjoyed our stay and would recommend it to anyone. We were able to see all the major attractions in three days. Thanks so much, Javier!

Our amazing Barcelona Tour

  • 5 of 5

We had a home stay for the first time in Barcelona.What we experienced is if you are a group you should rent an apartment.This apartments is so close to everywhere that we needn't even take a public transport to the city center.We cooked at home mostly.There is a big supermarket where you can find a lot of things at reasonable prices.

There are three rooms but two rooms are really double.One of the rooms can be used as single despite two seperate beds.

Shortly it is in a safe and lively area.We enjoyed our holiday....

Spacious, clean apartment in Barcelona

  • 4 of 5

This was a wonderful apartment and the six of us enjoyed our stay in Barcelona. The apartment was spacious, clean and very comfortable- and the air conditioning was great in the hot weather! It was very close to several metro stations, making it easy to get around. The apartment was also very close to many attractions, including Las Arena shopping centre and the Magic Fountain, which had a spectacular light and music show in the evenings.

Javier was very helpful and friendly, both whilst we were there and before we arrived. We would certainly recommend this apartment to anyone looking for a base from which to explore Barcelona.

The apartment is very centred in Barcelona. At 250 meters there is the “Gran Vía” the longest avenue in Barcelona where you can have a great walk to the old city or, in the opposite side, to Plaça de Espanya and to Olympic facilities.

Less than 1 km far there is Barcelona Sants (the main railway station of Barcelona) were you can catch the train to most of the long and short distance destinations.

Barcelona El Prat airport is 12 km far and you can go to the apartment either by taxi (about 25-30 euro) bus (the nearest stop is Plaça de Espanya) or train (to Barcelona Sants)
