This apartment is located in a good location, within just a few blocks walking to Sagrada Familla Cathedral and the Hop On Hop Off Bus. The owner met us at the apartment after we were dropped off by our driver, let us in and told us about the apartment and how to get around. Unique to an American would be that there is a washer, but no dryer in the unit, and no air conditioning. The owner showed us a closet with long ropes to use to hang wet clothes to air dry within the building. We chose to hang in our unit, and it was 2 days to dry jeans and other large items. Other than this surprise, it was well equipped. It would have been nice for our family of 4 to have somewhere to sit other than the dining room table since there were no comfortable chairs, only the sofa. But the owner responded to a few housekeeping issues and we enjoyed our stay. You will not be sorry to deal with them directly, and I would definitely rent from them again.
We were a bit nervous about doing VRBO on an international trip, but we took a chance. We are certainly glad that we did. Our stay had no issues at all.
This apartment is near the area that's similar to New York's 5th Avenue. So, there are lots of high end shops and restaurants nearby. It's also about a 5-7 minute walk to the Diagonal metro station, which proved to be pretty convenient.
When we arrived at the apartment, our greeter (Brian) was very friendly. He pointed out good places to visit and eat around Barcelona. He made sure we had answers to all our questions about the apartment or the city. The apartment is on a narrow street and very few cars drive down it (usually just delivery vans). The area was quiet at night, and we felt completely safe walking around.
Inside the apartment, we found a large, clean and modern space. This is not a tiny apartment. One bedroom is about twice the size of the other, so it wouldn't be great for two couples, but a family with kids would be fine. The bed in the master bedroom was lower to the ground than expected (and VERY firm), but otherwise, everything was as advertised. It had everything we needed for cooking and even had some little shampoos, etc that you find in a hotel. Our stay was very comfortable. One down side was that the tv only had one English language channel, but we didn't have occasion to use it much anyway. We would definitely stay in this place or another one managed by this group again.
Just back from , Barcelona city break , two adulults two teenagers.
Gloria our host was there to meet us, all very easy.
The apartment is well located, within easy access to attractions etc,.
Beautiful, clean very modern tasteful apartment.
The 3 night stay started off perfectly with our host meeting us at the arranged time, even though it was very late. We were tired from a long flight and check in was brief but informative. The apartment is very modern, immaculately clean and the kitchen was well stocked. The refrigerator/freeze was larger than most we see in Europe and was very cold. The bathroom was modern with a large shower and excellent water pressure and hot water. Towels were large and thick. The bed linens felt new. The bedrooms were perfect for 5. We were a group of 3 couples and were allowed to have 6, which we worked out ok. Barcelona is easily traversed with the metro, which is a 7 minute walk from the apartment. The metro line from the airport comes directly to the closest metro to the apartment which saved a lot on taxis cost. We enjoyed the take out rotisserie grill that is right next door to the apartment. It is humid and warm in July in Barcelona. Air conditioning would have been nice but was not listed in the amenities so not a "negative".
"Nice 2 bedroom apartment, perfect for 2 persons!"
Left on 04/11/2017 for a stay in April 2017
Spent Easter week in Barcelona,the apt location is great, shops and cafe's on every block! Walking distance to 'The Cathedral of the Holy Cross and Saint Eulalia Rambla (Barcelona Cathedral) which was amazing! Gaudi buildings close by too! The apartment was very clean and the balcony faced the back of the apartment away from the street side which was nice and quiet, great for morning coffee or night time cocktails! The apartment was not big, but like i said perfect for 2 persons! His and her bathrooms was a great plus! I would definitely book this room again!
