Right opposite estacion de Franca and also a taxi stand. Lots of restaurants down the same street. 2 min walk to the park and zoo. The hot water took a while to figure out but I wouldn't let that put you off staying here at all! Has heater in case it's a bit chilly. Really great little find! Nice hosts too. Gracias!

Barcelona very busy, but a lovely city. Struggled to find anything to eat before 8pm, but think this is Spanish culture. The doorway and stairs up to the apartment looks a bit unsavoury and dingy, however the apartment is nice and very safe. Lots of steps up to apartment, which wasn't a problem for us, but may be for an older person and the railings quite short, so make sure children don't lean over. Manuel (although we never met) was a lovely host and offered to book a table for dinner and sent directions to the good restaurants and even ordered us a taxi to the airport. If you want a real Spanish experience stay here. Bed lovely and comfy and shower was hot with lots of power. The apartment was clean and compact with a heater for the cold wheather. Small shop two doors up and plenty of cafes for pastries. Apartment really close to everything. We booked open top tour for two days and also walked to the gothic quarter which was fantastic. Loved our little break.

The place was recomadated by some german friends we have who stayed there last year in December. We read the reviews and were actually a bit worried, as some are not so postive. Arriving though, we were welcomed by a very friendly person who explained us everything we needed for our stay. The area is also great, near the sagrada familia. The most stunning part we thought are the 2 terraces, yes the upper one only can be acsesed through a small window, but that we know is tipical in spain, also the lower ceiling, as this is an attic apartment. We now understand some of the reviews, cause maybe in some countries this concept is not very common, but we travel a lot, especially through spain, and are used to this tipical things, which makes everything for us more authentic,.To our releif everything was as our friends told us and as expected, maybe the sofa bed can be a bit uncomfortable as this is situated in a connecting room, but then again this is clearly explained on the website, so no hidden surprises. We really felt one af the locals and surelly will be back next year. Thanks Mr. Herbach.
