My partner and I had a wonderful 6 day stay in this indeed fabulous penthouse just last week. A truly lovely apartment, exactly as described, light, airy, and clean with a great view from 2 spacious terraces - one downstairs off the kitchen, the other upstairs off the bedroom. It's very private and great for sunbathing, or just sitting outside with snacks and drinks while listening to the lively sounds of the area. We often used the terrace for respite during the hottest part of the day and it was perfect. The apartment had everything we could need, including a roomy, well-working shower - we felt completely at home. The area is full of character with plenty bars, restaurants and shops right at the doorstep, a short walk from the beach and other tourist attractions. Santa Maria del Mar is just opposite and a gorgeous backdrop, especially at night with the lit stainless windows (church bells were chiming from approximately 7am to 11pm). Anjela met us for check-in and check-out and made us feel very welcome and comfortable, offering help and information to make our stay special. Thanks again, Anjela! We highly recommend a stay at Flavia's penthouse and have already done so to all the people we know. Thanks Flavia, for offering such a wonderful place, we could not have chosen better.
Response from the owner Hi Katleen, thank you for such a nice opinion. I am always happy when everything is ok in the apartment and above all when my guest meet their expectations about their stay in Barcelona. I thank you once again for having selected my apartment and remember I am always at your disposal. I am happy Angela was helpful and that you had a nice vacation in Barcelona. come back when you want. thank you Flavia
We recently stayed at Flavia's penthouse and we highly recommend it for several reasons. First, the individual who met us, Angela, to provide keys, etc, is a terrific person who went out of her way to make us feel comfortable and checked on us to see how we were enjoying Barcelona. Secondly, the location is superb. We walked many of the neighborhoods and this was our favorite by far with great restaurants, bakeries, outdoor seating, street musicians and arts shops everywhere. Simply wandering around the narrow alleys teaming with life was a blast. Finally, the apartment, though small, is well designed making the best use of space possible. The two outdoor terraces are perfect for a snack, a glass of wine or sunbathing. This is an area with significant nightlife so there is a lot of sounds throughout the night but we found them part of the great fabric of a wonderful Barcelona neighborhood. Highly recommended!
Response from the owner hi Paul. I am happy you enjoyed your vacation in Barcelona.Sorry for not being here during your stay but see you had a wonderful time. thank you for all your comments about the apartment and I am happy you liked it. I want also to thank you for having selected it and that if you come again to our city, I will be happy to have you and your family as my guests. All the best Flavia
“Amazing views and location!”
We enormously enjoyed our stay in Barcelona this past March, mainly because of the great location of the place and the two balconies! Most our nights ended with a bottle of wine and some cheese on the balcony while we enjoyed our view of the stained glass from the Santa Maria cathedral. The apartment had everything you needed, great restaurants were right around the corner, and the size was perfect for a party of two. Thanks for the great visit!
Response from the owner I am happy you enjoyed your stay in Barcelona. thank you for having selected my apartment and hope next time in Barcelona, you will love to stay there again. All my best Flavia
“Fantastic stay by a Gothic Church”
I had been to Barcelona before, but this was a great new experience. We went to sleep seeing a faint glow through the stained glass windows of Iglesia de Santa Maria and woke to the (not too loud) sound of church bells. Also, the apartment is very close to many interesting bars and Barceloneta is not far to walk. A little pricey, but a great place to stay.
Response from the owner thank you Mr. Moore for your fantastic and poetic opinion of my penthouse. even if it was a short stay, I am happy you enjoyed your vacation in Barcelona. hope you come back again All my best Flavia
“This apartment is a Gem”
My wife and I stayed in Flavia's apartment for 10 days in September. We loved everything about the apartment. The location is fantastic. It is a 3 minute walk to the Picasso Museum. Lots of good restaurants in the neighborhood. We had our choice of having our morning coffee on either the bedroom or kitchen terrace. The apartment is very comfortable. The owner was very helpful with restaurant recommendations and places to see. Flavia was also a great resource for helping us plan a driving tour of the Costa Brava. We would recommend this apartment to anyone who is looking for a home away from home in the beutiful city of Barcelona.
Appartement agréable, calme, et idéalement placé. Nous avons particulièrement apprécié les deux superbes terrasses. Seul petit bémol en hiver, le chauffe eau est un peu petit pour 4 douches.
Response from the owner Hi Muriel, I am sorry the hot water was not enough for 4 persons. That is why we left an advice note to use the hot water with moderation. It is a small apartment and unfortunately we do not have a gas boiler but only an electric one. thank you anyway for having selected my penthouse and hope you can come back again and maybe in summer. Best regards Flavia
“A stunning apartment in the very heart of Barcelona”
The apartment is located in a beautiful central area of Barcelona called El Born and I can't recommend it enough. It's full of tapas bars, restaurants, boutiques and cafes. The entrance to the apartment is right opposite one of the side entrances to Santa Maria del Mar - a magnificent gothic church. The apartment itself is very interesting, as it's arranged over two floors and has two sunny terraces. We loved buying croissants in a bakery on Santa Maria del Mar square and having breakfast on the top terrace overlooking Barcelona roofs - very romantic. Flavia and the check in guys were incredibly helpful and spoke very good English.
“A good home base to explore Barcelona”
We stayed in this apartment for 7 nights in May. Everything went well from check in to check out and the apartment was comfortable and quiet by Barcelona standards. The appliances, although a little dated all worked well. We especially enjoyed the large lower terrace as it was sunny for most of our stay. There are stairs in the apartment and a flight of slightly grungy stairs to the elevator on the ground floor so this may be of concern to some. The location is also very good, close to a small supermarket and bakery, food shops, cafes bars and restaurants. There is a bike rental shop a few minutes away, a huge park and the beautiful Santa Maria del Mar church opposite. The metro is a few minutes away.
“Perfect location, Perfect apartment, Perfection all around”
We just returned from a wonderful week in Barcelona. The apartment was just as described and a perfect home away from home. It is situated in a great area for food and general ease of getting around the city. We slept like angels and were never bothered by the church bells. Flavia called to make sure everything was in order for us and helped us with friendly suggestions. The apartment was clean and well-appointed. We hated to leave! The terraces are a big bonus. The bed is super comfy. We used the WiFi to communicate with family back home. All in all a truly great experience.
My wife and I stayed here for two weeks in November, 2011. The location is fantastic, lots of narrow walking streets, cafes & restaurants in the neighborhood (see the address, as the map location in Trip advisor is wrong). Apartment was as described by the owner. Check-in and check-out were easy and right at the times we requested. Drawbacks, that might concern some people - you must walk up about 20 stairs to get to the elevator. In the apartment, the bathroom is on the main floor, while the bedroom is on the 2nd floor, making nightime bathroom trips a bit challenging.
