“Very nice house, location not very central”

The house itself is really nice, we were a group of 12 travelling together and we were all able to fit comfortably with a bed each. One thing that is not as clear in the photos is that two of the rooms are actually inter-connecting and the shower downstairs is inside one of the rooms which meant the main shower that was being used was the one upstairs. There was also a jacuzzi in the downstairs room but water did not seem very clean. Pool area upstairs is nice to sit by and relax, very quiet. Pool itself was quite cold (bearing in mind we mainly went swimming at night and once or twice at that). Window through the pool is very cool but have to dive quite deep to be visible.

There is a super market right around the corner which was convenient, cooking utensils were provided (pots, pans, spatulas etc.) - stove was a bit tricky to figure out at first. Plates, glasses, knives, forks etc. all supplied and clean. Area itself is not very lively, mainly offices. Were told by taxi drivers the area was not the safest in Barcelona. We had no incidents that made us feel unsafe whilst staying here but as several taxi drivers told us this it is something worth mentioning. There is a bus stop near the house (right opposite super market) and getting to and from by bus was relatively simple. The main downside to the house was that getting to central Barcelona took about 40-45 mins by bus. Alternatively you could take a taxi which would take you 10 mins but we had to download a taxi app to call a taxi (finding one in the area was difficult) . Some of us opted to take taxis into the centre (not too expensive ranging between 10 - 12 euros per ride) whilst others had bought travel cards (I think it was 30 euros for 5 days). Location of the house was the main let down as it was not in the centre of Barcelona and for a group of teenagers like us who came to explore the city a 40-45 min bus ride was not ideal.

House owners were very nice, I never dealt with them directly my friends did but they seemed nice. Showed the first people to arrive how everything works and when we were having trouble with anything we just sent them a text and they offered to come by to help out or explain over the phone. There is wifi at the house and the AC's seemed to work fine. No major complaints other than the location. Condition of the house was very good, decorations were cute and added to the experience. The main let down for us was the location.

“Amazing house - ideal for hen party”

11 of us stayed last weekend, and had the most amazing time. The house is even better than it looks in the photos. There was a bit of a problem with the booking when we got there, but after forwarding some confirmations to the owner, it was quickly resolved and he was very helpful.
It is about a 30 minute journey by bus/metro from the centre of barcelona, or 10 minutes by taxi (which cost between 11 and 15 euros), and is is in a quiet area so nice and peaceful. We didn't find any bars or restaurants nearby although if we'd walked a little further there would have been. We did use the supermarket thats just over 5 minute walk and was surprisingly cheap. We spent the first night eating and drinking at the house as it was so lovely. The quirky decor and the roof terrace garden really does make it special and is a fantastic base to check out Barcelona's sights. The only problem we had was a toilet seat that wasn't attached too well, and some of the mattresses were a little lumpy where you could feel the springs, but certainly didn't prevent anyone from sleeping. I hope I get the chance to go back and stay again one day.
