The apartment worked well for us, Five girl cousins, so we didn't mind sharing rooms, Sadly the sun didn't shine for us so apartment was quite dark. The living room was especially dark so we tended to sit around the dining table and little room at the side. Great location for food shopping and local restaurants when we didn't want to venture too far.
Our flight was delayed but we were still met at the apartment and everything worked well and useful information given. Would suggest some new pillows though !! And we did replace the broken bottle opener. Everything was clean. Ana very kindly organised our taxi back to airport.
Wonderful location and Neighborhood
Form the start this was a great rental experience. Ana was very helpful and responsive to my emails and provided valuable recommendations.
We were a group of 8, with 4 (over 50's) traveling in from the US and 4 (early 20"s) students joining us from the UK. We all arrived separately, either by car service, taxi or mass transit. This was easy to find and upon our arrival we were met at the apartment and given an overview and a bottle of Cava. On minor issue was that It did take a few days to figure out how to put on the heat (it was chilly) as the air conditioning was discussed but not the heating.
The apartment had plenty of room for all 8 of us to sleep comfortably and 2 bathrooms with showers. The hot water and water pressure were some of the best I have had on any of my travels in the states or in Europe. If one thing was difficult it was not having mirrors in the bedrooms, with 2 adult women and 4 college girls, getting make up and hair done for our evenings out was challenging. I often got ready in the foyer as that was the only other mirror in the apartment.
The kitchen had everything we needed to prepare meals. We found the local market WONDERFUL! The Sant Antoni Market is undergoing renovation but is housed in temporary stalls across the street. We were able to purchase fresh fruits and vegetables, cheese and meats and the most amazing bread/pastry is available and also at several pastry/bakery shops in the neighborhood. We celebrated our Thanksgiving by purchasing roasted chickens and prepared the sides from items we purchased at the market.
The neighborhood has easy access to the Red and Green lines and we walked both day and night time as did the 4 girls with no problem finding our way or with safety.
Overall this apartment gave us a terrific base for our adventures in Barcelona and met all of the posted descriptions. We would happily return and recommend this apartment.
We stayed in this apartment for 5 and one half weeks and had a wonderful time in Barcelona and traveling to other cities and towns along coastal Spain. I do not think you could find a more centrally located apartment in Barcelona. Midway between Plaza Catalunya (where all the tour buses depart from) and Plaza Espania, the location of the magic fountain. The apartment is as described and you will find all you need there. There are many restaurants within walking distance as well as stores and shopping. If we return to Barcelona we will certainly stay here.
Hola Gerard, Thank you for your great review ! It was a pleasure to host you. Hope to host you again for your next stay in Barcelona :-) Ana
Perfect Apartment for a Family
We stayed in this apartment with my husband, three kids and my mom. It was perfect. Walking distance to important museums but not in touristy district with overpriced restaurants. We went to the local butcher, bakery and grocery store and made great Spanish meals in the apartment. And an elevator for my mom!
This is a wonderful apartment. Very spacious with a great "sun room" and dining area. The kitchen is large and well equipped. The owners are friendly and very helpful with LOTS of materials and guidebooks available. Clean apartment with nice towels, lots of hot water (although when taking a shower the water switches from hot to cold frequently). GREAT location. We walked to many of the sites. Having the airport bus within blocks was an added feature; so much cheaper than a taxi. Being a 4 bedroom and 2 full baths, I highly recommend this place for 6 people.
Perfectly situated apartment in a nice neighbourhood
We just got home from a stay at Ana and David's apartment on Floridablanca, and had a great time there. The apartment was perfect for our needs - we were a group of three adults and two teenagers and had plenty of space. The bedrooms are not very big, but they are all you need for a city stay. The front room is quite noisy, but didn't really stop us sleeping, as we were exhausted from sightseeing! The dining room has a good size table where we chilled out in the evenings, but we did spend most of our time out in the city. The area is a residential one, which we preferred, but there are lots of cafe's, restaurants and bars in the surrounding streets, as well as patisseries and bakeries where you can pick up some delicious things for breakfast! We especially loved CafeParis at the end of the block. There are also plenty of little supermarkets a few steps away, for picking up provisions.
Although we weren't in the Old City Centre we found that we could get to any part of the city really quickly. We took the bus from outside the apartment door a few times, and the Metro stops are nearby. We bought a T10 ticket for each of us and that was enough journeys to take us all over the city. We also found that we could walk to many places, including Passeig de Gracia, Las Ramblas and Placa Espanya for the Magic Fountain. David and Ana have copies of maps and bus routes in the apartment that you can take out with you, and we found these really useful. David was really flexible about coming to return our deposit on the evening before we left, and Ana arranged for taxis for us to get to the airport, which was a relief as it was an early flight, on Easter Sunday, with a change in the clocks that same night! All worked out perfectly, and I recommend the apartment to anyone with a few days to spend in this lovely city!
