I stayed for a business trip for a few nights and really enjoyed it. The price is superbe for what you get! The apartment is spacious for one or two. Would not stay there with more people although a second bedroom is available. Bedroom and living are airco'ed. Very helpful. A small balcony is nice for one to sit and watch the street business in the evening. It is a very lively street, but after 2300 everything is calm. Restaurants and bars are nice, Mostly frequented by locals. A super market is right across the street. Extremely convenient. The amenities are very nice. The kitchen and bathroom have everything you need. Everything is very clean and neat and Sergio was a great host and surprised me with a bottle of Cava as a welcome! Thank you for your hospitality!
We got a very nice welcome from Sergio who seemed very trustworthy. The location is absolutely fantastic. Outside our teeny balcony there were a dozen tapas bars just right there, and more further along the rd which is pedestrianised and the area (Poble Sec) is perfect for an evening stroll. But the double glazing meant that the kids weren't at all disturbed at night, which was pretty amazing, while we just sat on the balcony drinking our complimentary bottle of cava! The apartment is really well appointed, with a very good shower and all rooms are nicely finished, comfortable beds, a/c... absolutely no problems here and we'd love to visit again. Thank you!
The apartment on Carre de Blaie (spelling???) met all our needs and expectations. It was comfortable, well equipped and conveniently situated for all the places we wanted to visit. The area has a great atmosphere and we enjoyed cafes and restaurants close by. We highly recommend this accommodation.
The apartment is in Poble Sec a lively neighbourhood full of tapas bars and cafes. The apartment is located in a pedestrian street so you only have to step out of the door and have a huge variety of eating places. While it is only 10 minutes from the Magic Fountain, it is a bit of a walk to the other attractions. Allow 25 minutes to Las Ramblas and 35 to 40 minutes to the Gothic Quarter. Don't let that put you off. It's level walking and there's always public transport.
The apartment is well equipped and comfortable for a family of four. Communication was fantastic via email. We received full instructions about the place and services and attractions. The apartment was clean and quiet at night. We were allowed to drop bags off early which was very helpful.
My only criticism was that we were told to ring from the airport when we got there so that we could be greeted. When we did so we were told just to turn up and the cleaner would allow us to drop off bags. That wasn't a problem except the cleaner didn't speak English so negotiating when to return wasn't easy. Similarly, we were told to ring at the end of the stay and a taxi could be booked. When we rang we were told just to go to the main street and hail a cab. It wasn't a big deal but there was quite a difference in responsiveness between email and phone conversation. Nevertheless, we had a great stay and would gladly recommend.
