My name is Carola. I will be happy to tell you about our neighbourhood and other areas of Barcelona, Sitges, Catalonia

It is a colourful district, so easy to walk to museums (Picasso Museum), theaters (Liceo Theater), modernist building (Palace of Music), Gothic Quarter (Cathedral) shops I(Portal del Angel), markets (Santa Catherina Market), restaurants (4 Gats) and bars. The Ciutadella park is almost across the street and just behind is the beach (Barceloneta).

It is 5 min. to metro line and railway 'Arco de triunfo', 5 min. to bus Station del Norte ( to go to Girona, Figueras), 10 min. to main railway station de Francia. It is really the best location from where to discover Catalonia and the local lively neighborhood.

The unique feature of this apartment (compared to similar apartments in this area) is its amazing open views overlooking trees (with parrots) from all main rooms, which give you a lot of light, sunshine, and privacy even though you are in the very heart of Old Town.

This apartment was perfect , it was sunny and had everything we needed . It was in a perfect location , we would love to come back and stay right here. The furnishings were beautiful and the little balconies and the trees outside the window made it feel secluded even while being in the heart of the city. We could walk everywhere but used the hop on hop off bus for a couple of days. The neighborhood was delightful with ample shops restaurants and wonderful cafes and squares. I cannot say enough ....the only issue could be stairs for those that have limitations with their health, otherwise perfecto!

My husband and I stayed in this apartment from 11.2-11.11 and loved it.

Neighborhood: perfect for us- tons of great places to eat and drink, easily walkable, felt less touristy than other neighborhoods, clean, quiet at night, santa catarina market is amazing, park across the street. loved it.

Apartment: really nice. lovely views, comfortable, exactly as pictured. kitchen is pretty well equipped, washing machine works well. chandeliers in every room, we loved it. Really easy to communicate with Carola and the lovely woman who checked us in and out. We'd definitely stay here again next time!

The perfect place to stay

We loved this apartment. It was exactly as described on the website, and in previous comments. It was very clean, and well equipped. There was a great supply of reference material, and Carola had thoughtfully left some basics (water, milk, wine!, oranges). It is an excellent location, with a small market and restauraunt below, quick access to the Metro system, and walking distance from many local destinations. If we are lucky enough to return to Barcelona, we woudn't even consider looking for a different apartment, and it sure beats staying at a hotel.

We stayed here for five nights and had a fantastic time. The apartment is *exactly* as described and pictured, and is immaculate. We found it comfortable and lovely, and felt immediately at home. Carola met us upon arrival and was friendly and extremely helpful in pointing us to local attractions. Her shelf of travel books and maps helped as well. She had kindly stocked the refrigerator with a few items that helped get us going and added to the extra feeling of welcome. The location is fantastic--truly almost everything we wanted to do was within walking distance, including the beaches and many of the main sights of the city. We loved the three different small balconies, each with its own beautiful view. Yes, there are a few stairs to climb, but we got used to that quickly and only really noticed it the first night when we had suitcases. Thanks for a great stay, Carola!

Great location, very nice apartment. The bed wasn't very comfortable, but other than that it was exactly as advertised and we would definitely stay there again.
