“Perfect in every way”
This apartment is a perfect blend of sophistication and comfort. Tastefully decorated and well equipped, it is ideally locally just outside the tourist area so you feel like you get a taste of real Barcelona but close enough to the main attractions for walking. All these aspects would make it a great base for a visit to Barcelona. What makes it particularly special was the very warm welcome from Isobel and the fridge full of goodies that enhanced the welcome. Wine, beer and chocolates are by no means essential but are truly generous gifts that elevate the quality of the stay. I would recommend this apartment to all my friends and very much hope to return in the future
“The perfect Barcelona experience”
Without hesitation I highly recommend this apartment for a stay in Barcelona. It is located in an historic building in a nice neighborhood in the Eixample district and is in a perfect location for getting around. The apartment itself is both elegant and comfortable. Our host, Isabel, it the best! We had a fantastic time.
“LOOK NO FURTHER! This is it!”
WOW! We were so fortunate to have chosen this fantastic apartment! With the hundreds listed, after careful consideration and reading numerous reviews, we decided on Isabel's and were not disappointed. The pictures posted did not do this beautiful apartment justice. It is even more lovely in person. Everything was immaculately clean and tastefully decorated. We loved the unique floors and the interesting artwork, and were especially fond of the large double doors opening up to the street below. We would open these to let the cool Barcelona breeze filter in through the beautiful treetops, and hear the energetic vibe coming from below. When it was time for bed. we'd shut them and it was slumber quiet, shutting the world out for a restful sleep. Speaking of sleep, the beds were so comfortable. There were nice cotton double sheets with soft, fluffy blankets to cuddle up in on cool nights. We had plenty of closet and drawer space for our clothes. We would use the king bed at night, and the smaller bedroom for afternoon siestas. Perfect! The living/dining area was great! The couches were perfect for plopping down after our long walking tours. There was a fantastic library with a vast array of books & DVDs, but alas, we had no time to look at these. We never even turned on the TV. My hubby & I were alone, but we noted there were lots of toys and baby equipment available for those with children. I really enjoy cooking, especially with all the fresh ingredients from the numerous nearby markets. The kitchen was nicely equipped with modern appliances and everything needed to easily whip up some delicious meals. The dishwasher made great haste of my mess. The bathroom, though small, had a nice rain shower, and plenty of nice, thick bath linens Isabel has a guide that provided absolutely any and all info we needed concerning the apt., the appliances, markets, restaurants, bakeries, attractions, transportation., etc. We could tell how much thought and time was put into this treasure. I could go on and on about pleased we were, but I know you travelers have better things to do than read. I give this raving review with trepidation, as I fear this true luxury apartment will not be available for us when we return to this great city. Thank you, Isabel, for being so kind and gracious upon our arrival. You were so prompt in responding to my many emails, easy to book with, informative and patient showing us how to use everything, and generous with the cold cava, chocolates, juice and milk. We look forward to staying in your fantastic flat again!
Öncelikle apartman?n sahibi Isabel dünya tatl?s? bir insan ve bize akla gelebilecek her konuda yard?mc? oldu. Apartman?n yeri oldukça merkezi, her yere yürüme mesafesinde. Apartman geni?, temiz ve oldukça rahat. Barcelona'y? ?spanyollar gibi ya?amak isteyenler için ideal bir f?rsat
Wonderful flat with a fantastic location. Isabel and Mike are very gracious hosts. The flat was true to all previous reviews. Couldn't have asked for a better welcome from Isabel, a true ambassador for Barcelona! Flats has everything you could possibly need and charm on top of all else. Thank you so much for making our short yay wonderful.
“Our fourth stay here”
We spent two weeks at Sweet Home Barcelona during august and being our fourth stay here, we find the name of the apartments so apt. We never tire of exploring Barcelona and to have this apartment as our base in this city, makes the whole holiday experience extra special. Isabel and Mike are superb hosts and the little touches, like a bunch of flowers on arrival, as well as some goodies in the fridge, are thoughtful and welcoming. The beds are superbly comfortable, the wifi works well, and the kitchen is equipped with all the required utensils. Not to mention how spotlessly clean it is on arrival. And finally, the location is the clincher for us to return again and again. Looking forward to next year already!
“Couldn't be better”
We have stayed here twice and each time the apartment was absolutely perfect. It's in a quiet street but within walking distance of many of the main attractions in Barcelona, including las Ramblas, the Boqueria, El Borne and even the beach. The flat itself is beautifully furnished and very well equipped. Isabel is a wonderful host and is always happy to help with any advice you might need during your stay. We have stayed in flats and villas all over Spain, and this remains one of our absolute favourites. I can't recommend it highly enough.
“Fantastic stay in Barcelona”
We are a family of 4 from Montreal Canada and stayed in the condo for 4 day during July 2013. We absolutely loved it. The location is fantastic and close to many metro stations. No car is necessary when staying at this aparement. The place is very clean and furnished very nicely. The pictures on the web site are a true representation of the apartment. Although the bathroom is extremly nice it may cause a challenge for people with disabilities or limited mobility. We would certainly recommend this place for a nice week in Barcelona.
“Stop looking... this is the only place to stay in Barcelona!”
From booking to check out, Isabel is an absolute delight and a true professional to deal with. Isabel was there to greet us & spent time showing us how to work the appliances and locate everything we needed. She has a brilliant folder of info re the apt and the surrounds /sightseeing. Very handy, plus plenty of maps, guide books and even some toys which our daughter loved! A nice surprise was fresh flowers, chocolates, wine and some other goodies, how thoughtful! It is located in a safe, upmarket area of Barcelona surrounded by stylish boutiques, patisseries, restaurants and is literally within walking distance of every major landmark in Barcelona. Placa Catalunya is only 3 blocks away - the main centre of the city. My husband and I stayed in Flat 1B with our 7 year old daughter for 7 nights and we walked everywhere - La Ramblas, Barcelona zoo, all of Gaudi's buildings, Parc Ciutadella, the old town (Barri Gotic), Barceloneta beach, etc.. the only time we used taxis or the train was to Parc Guell and the airport. Taxis are plentiful and cheap and to be honest, easier than mucking around with the train. 2 supermarkets within 1-2 blocks, with plentiful, cheap fresh produce. The kitchen is well stocked and very clean. The beds (queen in the master and double in the 2nd bedroom) were firm and comfortable just as we like and there was baby items for those that need them too (in the cupboard). The master bedroom and living rooms have double doors leading out onto tiny balconies with stunning views over the leafy streets below and gorgeous buildings across. It was relatively quiet at night with some occasional street noise which is unavoidable in a central city location. There is a lift and 3 very secure dead-bolted doors to get through, so it is very secure and we always felt very safe. There is a flat screen TV with some english channels and excellent Wifi. Isabel was kind enough to book us a taxi for an early morning departure
“Barcelona but better”
This is a terrific apartment that enhances any stay in an already brilliant city. As a family we were looking for a central base but in a quieter residential area, and this is perfect. Great for a good nights rest and somewhere to come home to when the kids are ready for tea or bed. Well equipped and beautifully renovated with wonderful tiled floors this is a characterful apartment that inspires rest and recuperation. Isabel couldn't have been more helpful or approachable. Great local amenities such as small supermarkets, delis and bars, especially Casa alfonso around the corner which we loved. Would happily recommend or stay again ourselves. Thanks for making our holiday one to relish and remember.
