Price and reviews are my top reasons for choosing anything and this stay was nothing different.
Although I never met Barbara I felt as if I had made a friend so helpful and prompt was she with responses. As mentioned in previous reviews, Venus is wonderful too even with her limited English she provides a very warm welcome!
Place is perfectly located for restaurants,
Metro, Lidl and the beach, all within an easy, short walk. The Metro system is incredibly easy to use and very cheap, we used it all the time and easily accessed various places as far away as the Nou Camp stadium or close by as my new favourite area, the Gothic quarter (I'd been to Barcelona once before and not discovered it then).
So many different restaurants nearby but we did return to one during our stay, Colom which served exquisite steak and individual paella as opposed to the more commonly available, one to share. Lovely service too, appears to be a family run business?
The big selling point was the pool which we used daily, usually having it to ourselves, unheated but beautiful once you're in!
There was building work going on directly opposite the apartment but being in a city with all the associated noises it did not spoil our experience, in fact it was interesting watching them work as we ate breakfast on the balcony and as we were out most of the day it was not an issue...life does not stop just because some people are on holiday and we understand that. Saying that, with the doors closed and aircon on you wouldn't know it was happening anyway!
Would recommend although maybe not for more than four guests, storage would be limited plus queues for the one bathroom, four adults coped fine though. To be honest, the rates are so competitive, I'd stay again with just two of us.
Thanks Barbara, hope to be a guest of yours again one day.
A lovely, clean, spacious flat in a quiet neighbourhood with excellent access to the centre and other attractions such as Park Güell. Major metro lines L1 and L5 are 5-10 minutes' walk away and will get you into the thick of it in 10 minutes.
All the ameneties are there including wi-fi, a big fridge-freezer and a washing machine. There are two strong aircon units cooling the living/dining room and the bedroom hallway area, with tower fans in the bedrooms. This was very welcome in the 35-degree heat!
Valentina was a great host, helping us out when we had some problems. Overall, a big thumbs up from me and my family.
