“Excellent location, and quiet street”

Very good information provided by Roberto and Elisenda beforehand. Photos on site give an accurate picture. The apartment is comfortable and clean. Beds were very comfortable.

This really is as quiet as described, despite being close to Sagrada Familia (15 minutes walk) and Passeig de Gracia. We took the metro to Passeig de Gracia, this was very easy with the Metro stop nearby and from there we could access the yellow line taking us to Barceloneta, Old town, and Passeig de Gracia.

It was lovely to be where people lived, rather than in a very touristy area.

On the negative side, the steps up to the flat are a challenge as other reviewers have described, so it is not suitable for those with mobility issues. We found the kitchen was not well equipped, so not great if you intend to cook for yourself. There were plenty of cheap cafés in the area so this was not a huge problem for us.

Hello Lesley!

Thank you very much for your feedback! This will help me to improve the apartment's comfort.

I will buy a boiler today and other things you missed in your stay.


Kind Regards

“Great apartment in a fantastic location”

Myself and my partner have just returned from a week staying at this apartment, and for us it was a brilliant choice from a large selection of other property rentals available in Barcelona.

The apartment itself was clean, comfortable and spacious. It has 2 bedrooms (one with bunk beds - the other a double), a lounge area with TV (and satellite), a front sitting area (with small balcony) just off the bedroom that overlooks the street, a kitchen with cooker (which we didn't use), and a fridge/freezer. At the back there is a utility area with the shower, toilet and a washing machine. Other amenities included a hair dryer, iron and ironing board, internet wifi and a small coffee maker. The only things we were looking for that would have been useful and not in the apartment was a cork screw (solved by asking the man at the supermarket to open the wine) and a kettle (solved by boiling water in a pan).

My personal view is that as we were staying for the week, by staying at an apartment it provided us with the advantage of having the fridge for beer, wine, fruit juice, bottled water, cheese, meats etc which was great for breakfasts and when returning from exploring the city during the day and getting ready to go out for the evening. Although I am happy to go out and spend money on these things, the convenience of it, for us, beats staying at a hotel/hostel.

Barcelona is a small city and the apartment is located about 10 to 15 minutes walk away from the Sagrada Família and about 10 minutes away from 2 metro stations. It is also an easy walk to Park Guell and down to La Rambla. The area around the apartment seemed very safe (this included when we were wondering around late at night) - it was also a quiet location. There are some great restaurants/bars nearby, and also local supermarkets, bakeries and fruit shops.

After the booking was accepted, we received excellent communication from the owners and on arrival in Barcelona, we were met (at the agreed time) by someone to let us in/ give us the keys.

We have rated this apartment as excellent- but this is based on what it is - as per the photos - not a 'luxury' apartment, but a comfortable and clean place full of character and charm, in a fantastic location. I would have no hesitation recommending this place to a friend and if we were to return to Barcelona, I would look to stay here again. However, as mentioned in the advert, this apartment is on the second floor and anyone who struggles with stairs might be better looking elsewhere.

We only returned yesterday and so we cannot yet comment on the return of the deposit, but I am certain based on the good level of communication beforehand, that this will not be an issue.
