We stayed at Barcelona Centre a few weeks ago, an Australian couple meeting my Roman cousin for an explore of this fabulous city.
Very well equipped two bedrooms, kitchen and laundry in a very good area - close to a Metro station and with plenty of moderate cost eating options nearby.
The only issue was security - the door leading to the balcony wouldn't lock and the roller security shutter was stuck in the up position. Fix those two issues and this apartment is complete.
The location is extremely convenient for dining out as there are lots of interesting and varied restaurants within a short walking distance from the apartment. The metro is just around the corner although we enjoyed walking to other parts of the city to explore the many attractions on offer in Barcelona. The apartment exceeded our expectations, Taras (the owner) was on hand to meet us on arrival and showed us around and also demonstrated how to operate the many useful appliances available for our use. He also provided an information sheet which included some local restaurant and patisserie recommendations which we found to be helpful. The apartment is well fitted with modern design concepts and extremely clean. We will definitely book to stay here again the next time we visit this wonderful city ..
Everything about our stay was as advertised, or better. Owner, Taras, was on-site to give us a warm greeting and welcome bottle of wine. The apt has been outfitted with a great deal of thought. The en-suite bath of the master, even has a towel warming rack. We were impressed with the seconf bathroom, as well. Although quite compact, everything works. No floor leaks from shower, ample spce for toiletries, etc. The back balcony was the washing machine and clothes dring space. The front balcony overlooks Carrer de Parlamen and is great for people watching. You are within walking distance of many historic spots AND the neighborhood has a flourishing restaurant and bar scene, including the very popular, "Donuteria."
Taras was most kind to arrange for our transfer back to the airport and all worked perfectly. He is a great host and we would love to return!
Avoid this place. Cannot be trusted. 6 out of 7 nights were cancelled with some weird suggestion that we would have been happy to take that one remaining night. This meant that salt was poured on the wound as I got reminders about my one remaining night; as if I would use it. The only positive is that we got our money back.
Excellent location...green line metro stop just around the corner. Small shops in immediate vicinity. Good restaurants on the same block. Apartment clean and well maintained. We loved our time in Barcelona; the apartment was a significant factor. Taras was very helpful.
