“Excellent just a wonderful location”
This is a small but perfect for purpose apartment for being close to the centre of Barcelona. Mario was so helpful from my very initial enquiry to helping us with our luggage up and down the stairs. We were 1 minute from Las Ramblas and max 5 minutes walk from the Aerobus stop, and were met immediately we arrived. We had 4 great nights in Barcelona. A useful tip there is a little pizza restraurant in the street about 20 metres to the left towards Las Ramblas doesn't look much but if you don't want to go far the food was very good.
This apartment is in a great location, just steps from La Ramblas. Speaking of steps, the only downside of the apartment is the steps to the apartmant. 56 spiral steps to the apartment. The owner, Mario, was very kind to help carry our luggage up to the apartment. The apartment was very comfortable. My wife and I had a great time in Barcelona. Being this close to so much made our time there very enjoyable.
“location, location, location!!!”
Incredible location...Everything you need or want is within a block or two...fine dining, great tapas places, pastries, grocery stores, . any kind of transportation; even the Renfe (train) to Montserrat for a day trip/hike!!! Mario was a great landlord...very helpful, friendly and quick to communicate with us when making inquiries.
“what a great spot!”
Mario met us at the door with a bottle of wine and great attitude! The apartment was exactly as show - very clean and well equiped. We were so happy we picked this spot for our first Barcelona vacation.
Location, location, location! Mario's apartment has it in spades! This small, but well appointed apartment was our base for eight nights at the end of March, 2014. It is located on a cul-de-sac off a pedestrian street off La Rambla and very close to the Plaça Catalunya. There are several restaurants and two bakeries on the pedestrian street and a plethora of places to eat on La Rambla and the plaça. The fresh market, La Boqueria, is nearby as well as a Carrefour supermarket that is open until 2200. We were able to walk to all the major sites in the center of Barcelona; we were able to board the Ho-ho bus and join a Gaudi tour on the plaça and never used public transportation. We left the apartment at 0600 on the day of our departure and found many taxis on La Rambla for our ride to the airport. The apartment was clean and very pleasant for the times we were not out exploring the city. A large frig, comfortable bed and couch, small, but functional bathroom, plenty of hot water, and fast wi-fi made this is a cosy, quiet retreat. Mario met us at the appointed time on arrival and was there a few minutes before 0600 on our departure to help us with our luggage up and down the narrow spiral staircase. We were supplied two sets of keys, all paperwork was in order--no muss, no fuss--very professional! When we return to Barcelona, we will reserve this apartment again.
Response from the owner thanks a lot for the review ;)
“Wonderful place to stay in Barcelona”
Location location location! This studio apt was perfectly located on a quiet pedestrian street, just one block off the Ramblas. We took the HopOn/HopOff bus to see the city, but otherwise we walked everywhere. The pictures don't capture the warmth of the apt. The dark wood floors and furniture create a very cozy feel. Two best things about the apt are the couch (such a blessing at the end of a long day!) and the bed (same reason as before!). Wonderful sheets and down comforter. The kitchen is well stocked, but we only had breakfast in the apt. The washer/dryer worked wonderfully and the bath area has plenty of space and a great shower. The half-wall separating the bedroom from the living room provides a sense of privacy while still keeping an open environment. This is my favorite apt rental so far in travelling Europe for 7 months. Mario was great to work with, and he was there when we came/left so hauling luggage up/down the stairs was no problem for us! I'd definitely stay here again if I come back to Barcelona ... and do some cooking because a fabulous market is very close by. We also recommend the Fat Tire Bike Tour as a fun & informative way to see the city.
“Great Plaza Catalunya location and aparment”
We stayed at Mario's studio apartment for 5 nights in late January. It's just like it looks in the pics and the reviews were all spot on. The location is fantastic, down a short dead end pedestrian-only alley, off a mostly pedestrian narrow street. The stairs are narrow and can make you a little dizzy, but really not hard to go up and down. The apartment is bright and let's you feel like a local. Mario was there to greet us and take our luggage up. He also responded quickly when we couldn't figure out why we couldn't get hot water (had to have the shower all the way on!). The apartment is situated on the block between La Rambla and the even better walking street of av. Portal de l'Angel. A very short walk from the aeroport bus, cheap and so easy! If you like to walk, this apartment is for you, though there are several metro stops right near by. Thank you, Mario, for such a great place to get introduced to Barcelona.
Response from the owner I'm glad to hear you enjoyed the apartment. Thank you for your review.
“Great apartment - would definitely recommend!”
The apartment has an absolutely perfectly located for any tourist in Barcelona, we were able to walk to most of the major attractions and were only minutes away from a huge selection of great bars and restaurants. The apartment itself is very well equipped inside and is perfect for a couple. The only reason I'm not giving it 5 stars is because of the stairs. Many of the reviews I read mentioned that they were 'challenging' and I have to agree. If you are infirm this apartment is sadly not for you.
Response from the owner Thanks for your comment! I am very glad you enjoyed the apartment.
“Great apartment in heart of Barcelona”
This apartment is situated very close to La Ramblas, but in a quite pedestrian street. Just 5 minutes walk from catalunya plaza where you can access the entire city via busses or the metro. It's a great apartment perfect for 2 people, with great big comfy couch and huge fridge. This was great for us as we have been travelling through Europe for a couple of months and were missing our couch time. Mario the owner was excellent giving us tips for the city and answering any questions we had. The apartment is however on the 3rd floor with no elevator and the winding stairs are a challenge, however Mario is very helpful and will help you get your bags up and down. We definitely would stay here again.
“Great little apartment”
Had a great stay. Apartment was centrally located so within walking distance of most of the main attractions. The apartment was perfect for two, with all the facilities you could possibly need. It was very clean when we arrived, Mario was great - extremely helpful throughout the booking process and when we arrived. Couldn't have asked for anything more.
