Apartment far from center city Barcelona
Overall, I would say that the experience was ok. The apartment was pretty much as shown in the photos. The shower did not work initially but the owner sent someone over to fix it within 24 hours. I would say that the issues which stop this from being a better place to rent is the general lack of what I would consider basic hospitality skills. For instance, charging an extra 20 euro to check out at 7am so we could make our flight - yes it was in the contract but still, not that great hospitality wise. Another strange surprise was that our party of 4 was left one tiny roll of toilet paper. When we discovered that there was no more in the apartment, it was night time with no easy way to get more. I was told that we were left one roll “as a curtosy”. It just seems like such a silly, easy, and inexpensive thing to provide and it is a troublesome thing to go find if you don’t know the area or the country well. Also no soap or shampoo provided. Again, simple basic hospitality.
Taking the kids abroad
This property was perfect for our family of four. Short walk to metro, close grocery store, short walk to the beach. Having a pool is always a plus with kids. Venus and Karla were very punctual and helpful I check in and check out.
Great owner very helpful
The owner was very nice and helpful when we needed things. The appointment was clean and had all the necessaries. Beautiful public beach in just 10 min walk . Overall it was a great experience .
This flat is in a great neighborhood with restaurants and local businesses within walking distance. Barbara and Venus were both fabulous and easy for check in and any questions. Venus even walked us to the grocery after check in.
