Guestbook comments from the owner

Fantastic stay, helpful and friendly owner, apartment super clean and new. Very functional kitchen had everything you need for cooking. The position to say excellent, although at first sight the streets in the surrounding area seem unsafe, it remains only an impression because in the evening you can walk safely. And what about the bed very very comfortable.

Very Disapointed

  • 1 out of 5
First, as a previous reviewer wrote, this is not a good area--meaning the precise alley this place is located on. There's no view, but you wouldn't want one here. Las Ramblas has much better places to stay--this is a dark alley location, a gloomy entryway and, I agree, does not feel safe. We elected to leave and find other places to stay. It is not an apartment, but more like a large, cheap hotel room. It was not in good shape. The toliet paper just sits on the ledge of the sink, the shower is cramped and dark, the place is just not very nice all around--and as said below, is much smaller than the photos. The heater is actually a space heater on the ceiling and the room was cold. It is NOT good for more than 2 people, as there's a futon like chair that you MIGHT use for a third person--but you won't be comfortable. We ended up staying in many other spots in the city and loved all areas. As we came back to this area, it is clearly one of crime and lower economic conditions. We have traveled all over the world, and in third world locations, and I was traveling with two men; who clearly felt this rental both unappealiing and unsafe. The owner was aggressive and intolerant of our problems even finding the place. I was very disapointed. VRBO is usually better than this. Barcelona has MUCH better places to stay, even in Las Ramblas.

Owner's Response: Well, a week ago we received this comment in our mail box. We, owners and representatives from more apartments in Barcelona for many years and with good reviews had a discussion about this review. We have to react on this or not?

We decided to react on it. The reason is simple because every story has 2 sides and certainly in this case.

The client decide to make a direct reservation by VRBO without any email inquiries about apartment or area to us. In the review the client tell us that she had a lot of experiencies in travels all over the world. we as owners were shocked to read this information and complaints about the apartment, views and size of the apartment. Because if you have so much experience in traveling why you book a 1 bedroom apartment in the oldest part of an european city (old roman city) what is located on the first floor. After to see it the client is complaining about there is no view?
If the apartment has 45m2 (like is written in the advertisement) why a complain it is to small for 3 people and saying there is no more space for 2 people. There are plenty 2 bedroom apartments in this city. The last issue is about the neighborhood. It is really poor to copy this ´negative´ information/ feelings from a client 6 months ago again in your own review. Because this client could knew it that she come in a multicultural area. Strange for us and totaly no responsability for her own decisions, but that became worser and mor rude for us. Because the story is a little bit different then they want to believe you.
We made an early check in for the son with the appointment to come back the next day for the balance remaining. an hour after at 1500 the client phoned that she was arrived.at 23.10 we received an email that she was not we did sattisfied about the apartment. What happened in those 8 hours, why no communication becaus in this way we could not help her to make our faults good. (if there were faults from our side) but you can discuss this we think. So the title from this review Very dissapointed, is also for us the right title. But seeing in in the eyes of the owner. The behaviour of the client give us the feeling; you go to a restaurant, order a lobster, but it is not red or big enough and the client leaves the restaurant without any communication to the waiter but the restaurant has no payment and dirty used table. I don´t know if you should like it. Missed oportunity and it stead of a winning situation there are only losers.

Nice Apartment, extremely unsafe neighborhood

  • 3 out of 5
After reading the previous reviews, viewing the pictures listed, and doing a ton of research I thought that booking this place would be a no brainer. Therefor I will review on the actual apartment and then on the area itself.
The apartment holds true to its cleanliness, amenities, and photos. Mind you it is much smaller than perceived in the pictures but that is to be expected, especially in Europe. Our TV did not work, which was not a huge deal being that we did not go on vacation to spend it watching TV and the Wifi worked wonderfully all the time. The owners were professional and responded quickly when I sought them out and overall the actual apartment was what I expected. Having a washer in the unit was nice and the AC worked great.
The area on the other hand was NOT what I expected. I knew Las Ramblas was sketchy and would be full of tourists, however one should be warned of the overwhelming amount of prostitutes on every corner (day AND night), annoying peddlers constantly trying to sell you drugs, and all of the pick-pocketers. I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND this area to anyone as the choice area to stay in Barcelona; A day trip to experience it is worth it, but it is very sketchy at night. My fiance and I personally saw, on 2 separate evenings, men running and yelling after they had just stolen something. Luckily it wasn't us. The area is unsafe, extremely overpriced in regards to eating and drinking due to how they highly target the tourists (and how rude they are as well) and surrounded by hostels. I would be very cautious to stay in this area if I were older and not able to run away quickly, a group of girls, with children, or alone.

Owner's Response: Hello,

Thank you for your review. For me as a owner is this a really subjective feedback about an area in Barcelona. This area the Ramblas Area is the most popular area where people want to be. Of course in a big city (1,5 milion citizens) Are also some dark sides of the civilization. like pickpockets etc. The reaction and feedback is goes only about what she saw in the street. Me as an apartment owner I´m not responsable what happens in the street of a city like Barcelona. With this review We get the name that we are responsable. So it has nothing to do What we offered her. By all of our check ins we are warning about pick pockets and roberies in the city. She saw it twice but it happens also in the best areas of Barcelona, Berlin, Paris or Chicago so it is little naive to thing that it can not happen in the area of the Ramblas. The point from the apartments were good and so we like to offer it to our clients. The rest of the story is subjective it has nothing to do with the apartment. Area is coming up area with new restaurants, hstels and shops in the streets. That the clients find it overpricing the food, restaurants and bars. I´m agree with her but please you can search further restaurants outside the Ramblas area. In every touristic city you have this areas. Don´t put it to the apartment owner. You made de investigation about searching a good please.

Magnificent apartment with everything one could need

  • 5 out of 5
After an extensive search my boyfriend and I decided to stay at this apartment during our 5 day stay in Barcelona [10 days total in Spain]. From the very beginning of booking the apartment, Judet and Olav were incredibly helpful and kind, answering our many e-mails with countless questions. When we arrived at the apartment building in Barcelona, we were warmly greeted and brought into the apartment to take a look around, receive the keys, etc. We were given helpful suggestions of things to do around the area and corresponding subway stations were circled on a map of the city for our convenience.

The apartment is incredibly well located, just a few blocks off Las Ramblas. It is very quiet, but also very centrally located so it is easy to get to so many areas of the city just by walking. We enjoy walking a lot (as New Yorkers we are used to it) so we only used the subway to get to Park Guell and Sagrada Familia, but it was an easy walk to Museu Picasso, the Cathedral, Musica Catalan, El Born, MACBA, the beach, Pedrada and the Passeiga Gracia area. The famous Boqueria Market is only a few short blocks away, and it was wonderful to have the convenience to return home with a bag full of snacks (and a fridge to put them in!)

The apartment itself is spacious with all of the amenities one could want. It was great to be able to do laundry halfway through our trip, or relax and stream music on our laptop. Though we didn’t try to place any video (Skype) calls, we were able to easily place calls on the laptop over VoIP and the provided Wifi was more than sufficient to have great call quality. I was particularly excited to find a real hairdryer, complete with diffuser attachments, available. I had been having trouble with the travel dryer with the converter I brought, and the hairdryer was a welcome treat! Overall the apartment was very comfortable and modern.

The apartment is just as bright and beautiful as it appears in the photos online. Judit and Olav were beyond helpful every step of the way and we would absolutely recommend this to anyone planning a trip to Barcelona.

Outstanding Apartment and Fabulous Location!

  • 5 out of 5
My husband and I recently made a 17-day journey to Madrid and Barcelona. In Barcelona, we were so fortunate to stay in Judit and Olav’s second-floor apartment. Judit and Olav are amazing people – so friendly and so helpful! They are like friends to us now, after our wonderful experience in their apartment.

We took the train from Madrid to Barcelona, and then took a quick taxi to the apartment, located behind the Opera about three blocks from the Ramblas. The apartment is located in a historic building on the one-block-long Calle Santa Margarida, just a few blocks from the Opera metro stop on the Ramblas. (Being so close to the metro is fabulous for getting around the city.) Since no cars are allowed on this small street, the taxi dropped us off on Carrer de la Unió and we walked about a half block to the apartment.

Entering the building at Santa Margarida 8, the building is well lit and there is a flight of steps leading to the apartment. (There is no lift.) The listing description was completely accurate regarding the location, and the listing photos perfectly reflected the rental’s appearance and amenities. The studio apartment was perfect for the two of us, with one bedroom, bath, kitchen, living room, and eating area. The apartment was impeccably clean and very modern, and had all the amenities one would need for an extended stay. Since we like to have coffee in our room in the morning, it was great having the large coffee maker, and having a microwave, a washing machine, and super fast internet was also a real plus. Because of the apartment’s convenient location, it was so easy finding a grocery store, pharmacy, great restaurants, Barcelona's most famous Market La Boqueria, and more, right in the neighborhood.

The apartment is within walking distance of the Old Town, the Picasso Museum, the Palau Güell, and the Palau de la Música Catalana — do not miss them! The apartment is also within walking distance to the beach (walk down the Ramblas and you are there!) We also found the Metro very easy to navigate for locations out of walking distance – do not miss Gaudi’s beautiful Park Güell and La Sagrada Familia! There is so much to see in beautiful Barcelona!

We had a wonderful stay in Barcelona at Judit and Olav’s apartment. I highly recommend them as owners: they will help you in any way they can, going beyond the call of duty to provide extraordinary service to their guests. I would rate our experience a perfect 10!
