Worked well for our family of 5!
Clean, quiet, safe, convenient neighborhood near grocery stores, cafes, restaurants, and public transportation (the apartment is a 5 min walk from the La Segrera metro station and we mostly used the metro into town and also to/from the airport..super easy!). Valentina was helpful and kind enough to let us drop off our luggage early even though the apartment was still being cleaned. There was often the smell from someone smoking when we were out on the balcony or if the bedroom windows were open, but most of the time when we were there we had the air conditioner on and windows closed. The downstairs neighbor complained of a water leak possibly from the washing machine on the balcony but Valentina's father came by to check and the issue was resolved. Overall, a great place to stay!
Brilliant location for Sant Andreu Jazz Festival and east access to beach and Barcelona centre
Not quite what the camera wide angle lens suggests but the flat was clean and air con worked well.
Kitchen well equipped, regrettably no cork screw!
WiFi worked well.
Bathroom good and clean
Works being undertaken on the inner well of building onto which main bedroom looked, so pretty unsightly and noisy at times.
Would I stay again?
Valentina was very nice and I’m sure would have sorted any problems......, but we didn’t have any!
Ah, if you are over 1.85mts tall you might find beds a bit small!
An excellent flat
This flat was clean, and quiet. It was just what we needed to enjoy a few days away from busy families.
The owner was helpful and kind when we were later than expected from the airport.
A great base for exploring Barcelona
A lovely, clean, spacious flat in a quiet neighbourhood with excellent access to the centre and other attractions such as Park Güell. Major metro lines L1 and L5 are 5-10 minutes' walk away and will get you into the thick of it in 10 minutes.
All the ameneties are there including wi-fi, a big fridge-freezer and a washing machine. There are two strong aircon units cooling the living/dining room and the bedroom hallway area, with tower fans in the bedrooms. This was very welcome in the 35-degree heat!
Valentina was a great host, helping us out when we had some problems. Overall, a big thumbs up from me and my family.
Was a pleasure!
I hope to host you and your family another time!
Many thanks !!
Basic accommodations. Clean and quiet.
This was our first stop in Spain. The flat was easy to find, the neighborhood was clean and felt safe. The owner was available when we needed help (there was a broken toilet when we arrived). The apartment is very basic, minimal linens and towels, some basic plastic furniture or older pieces. It was quiet at night and a nice view to outside. It was rather far from the central highly visited tourist sites, but the metro stop is close by. I think some distance from the downtown is what made it nice and quiet. No complaints. It met our needs.
A good location but a mediocre apartment
We were on a driving holiday and wanted to include Barcelona without having to drive into the centre of the city. This apartment is well located, being easily accessible from the northern expressway and it is also served by two metro lines to the city centre. The optional parking (at 10 Euros a night) is located in a garage about 200 metres from the apartment.
We had wanted to arrive at 5.15pm but Valentina was not able to get to the apartment until 5.45 when the cleaning was still being done. The apartment is quiet and clean and its furnishings functional rather than stylish (which the website photos show). It would benefit from better maintenance ¬– for example, there were several blown or missing light bulbs and one of the toilets was not working when we arrived. We were also unable to securely lock the door to the front balcony.
The galley kitchen is fairly well-equipped (although a couple of microwaveable bowls would be useful). There was a useful array of basic cooking essentials – oils, pasta, tea, coffee, sugar etc.
We did not use the washing machine, which is located out on one of the two balconies. The wifi is strong and reliable in the living room, but it dropped out in the main bedroom at the other end of the apartment.
The main advantage of the apartment is its very convenient location. Inside, it is serviceable, but not as well presented as other comparable apartments. If returning to Barcelona we would probably search for another option in the same area.
Hi Larry, thanks for leaving a comment about your holiday in my apartment. Regarding the checkin, you yourself informed me that you would arrive between 17:00 and 18:00, for this reason the apartment was not ready at 17:00. in addition, I always ask you to inform me 30 minutes before arrival but in any case, I apologize for the wait!
Indeed, the furnishing of my apartment is more functional than elegant but I think it is more important the practicality on holiday than the elegance even if it is already a bit of time that we would like to refurbish the whole apartment to give a touch of elegance!
Noticing the non-working things that mention in the comment: I do not know which broken or missing bulbs you refer to, perhaps in the corridor but I'm sure that all the bulbs in the rooms were working and also, for the bathroom, I'm very sorry, I remember that it was broken drain of the toilet (the rest was fully functional) and unfortunately, you arriving on Saturday, I could not call someone to fix it before your arrival (fortunately this apartment has two bathrooms!). If I'm not mistaken, the toilet has been arranged on the following Monday! The balcony door hangs a little bad but it does not matter! The palace and the area are one of the quietest and safest in Barcelona!
the wifi works well and from some months we have added a signal enhancer in the corridor so any device will not have connection problems!
To conclude, if you liked the area, please consider my apartment after it has been renovated! ;)
thanks again for the suggestions!
The apartment is located on the first floor, there are two flights of stairs but there is also an elevator.
For the location, the apartment is well connected: there is near Metro Red Line "La Sagrera" (where there is also the blue line). They are 6 stops to Plaza Catalunya, the center of the city. There are also several bus stops just down the building
