First Class Stay
Family of 5: 3 teenage girls and 2 parents.
Did not have a car - no need for one, used public transportation (bus and train) effectively all week, rarely took a taxi.
First trip to Barcelona, and first time using VRBO. Had a pleasant experience organizing our trip, Rita and team were very prompt in answering all of our questions and the transaction was very smooth. The checkin person was Brad, very friendly and knowledgable, gave us the run through of the apartment and the trips that we were looking for. All of our questions were answered.
Very secure building right in the heart of the Gothic District. Excellent location, literally out your front door into the nice streets of Barcelona. We spent hours just wandering the alleys stopping into the restaurants and shops enjoying the city. Coming home to this nice apartment was a perfect interruption to or end to our day.
You are on the second floor over a business street with various shops, restaurants and bars. It is inevitable that you hear the nightlife going on, if you are not partaking in the nightlife you should be comfortable listening to it.
The apartment is very clean and new looking. There are 3 bedrooms, and two nice new looking bathrooms. The beds are all comfortable and we had no issues with space. We spent one week with the apartment and everything was as we had hoped. Plenty of markets to pick up fresh bread and sandwich food, easy to cook light meals in kitchen. They even have a drip coffee maker which is unique to Barcelona (as we came to find out).
We went on to another apartment in Rome for our second week of vacation, this apartment in Barcelona was very clean and modern compared to the other Rome apartment.
One nice thing that they provide are beach towels. We did go to a nice beach (Ocata) and this was a nice bonus for us.
Check out: Montserrat, Sagrada Familia, Parc Guell, Camp Nou, and try the double decker bus tour (it sounds very touristy but is an excellent way to see everything and get a feel for the city, while getting on and off at the spots you want to try).
Barcelona is a wonderful, largely undiscovered city, this apartment certainly made our stay feel comfortable. I would hope to return and will certainly stay here, and recommend this to my friends.
Thanks to Rita and Brad, great memories of Barcelona.
