Great stay in Barcelona
My family and I chose to stay a week in Barcelona following a cruise in the Mediterranean. We wanted a place we could enjoy as a family but without feeling like we were on top of each other. This property met those needs. The location was great - it was close enough to the things we wanted to see and do. There were some great places to eat nearby and being able to get a taxi or take metro was convenient. Also, even though the flat was in a busy area, there were dual windows which cut out the noise making it very quiet for sleeping. There was a washer which was helpful since we had been on a cruise and couldn't carry 2-weeks worth of clothes; wi-fi was appreciated and there was a TV which allowed to watch the FIFA World Cup when it started. The kitchen was stocked with plates / utensils / pots & pans for cooking.
The only thing I'd recommend to anyone visiting is to bring some convenience items if you plan to use the kitchen (paper towels / sugar / salt & pepper). Fortunately, there was a coffee press, toaster and hot water rapid boiler to use. Communication with the property manager was easy and the check-in / check-out was smooth. The roof top pool looked nice but there weren't any lounge chairs or chairs but if you wanted to cool down it was an inviting pool.
It is really kind of you to give such a great rating, Darren! We are always happy to have such nice and pleasant guests as yourself! You will be welcome again anytime!
All the best!
Could use some work
Was really hoping this was as good as the pictures and it's close but overall experience and stay is average, by far NOT luxury. Property needs some TLC, there was a scraped off portion of the wall in one of the guest rooms that looked like someone had punched a hole in it. The smaller bathroom has grimy tiles which i didn't step into without flip flops. The pool was unuseable, turns out i packed a bikini for nothing, it requires it's own key per unit which was not provided to us. The check in process was not enjoyable at all, the agent was straight to business, didn't show us around the apartment and was very quick to ask for our passports and deposit as we stood there with our luggage rather than acclimating us to the unit or asking about our travel. I get the transactions have to happen but a little customer courtesy would have been welcome. We turned on the AC and immediately got a knock on the door and a printed sheet telling us that the AC makes a lot of noise for our neighbor, they'd kindly request we turn it off. Sorry but that's SO not my problem, that should be taken up with the rental service/owner not with the folks vacationing there. Best thing about the property was the location, as the views are lovely although for the price of it i would not stay there again. Kinda also wondering when my deposit will be refunded, it's been on hold for over 13 days now. For luxury and the cost, please book another property or hotel for that matter.
Great stay except...
Location of the apartment was wonderful. It was withing walking distance to everything you would want to see or do. It was comfortable for the 5 of us. My only complaint is thst during our stay the WiFi was not working. We were told it was up to the internet company to resolve the issue. We were there for 3 nights. One of the major reasons I booked this apartment was because it offered free WiFi, and I needed to be able to access the internet for my work. I asked the property manager if it were possible to receive a discounted rate due to this problem and never received a response. I don't think offering a discounted rate is too much to ask because I had to pay additional money to be able to access my hot spot on my phone for my laptop, and the international rate is expensive. I could not recommend this apartment if having free WiFi is a necessity because you might end up having to pay expensive rates through your cell provider to access the internet if the WiFi is down. If free WiFi is not a necessity, then I would recommend this apartment.
Sorry about the spotty Wifi, rest assured we will work it out ASAP.
Many thanks for your positive review, though. It is really kind of you!
Excellent city break.
Excellent apartment. Spectacular views of the city. Very comfortable stay. Easy to find and great service by host. Close to metro and city centre.
Lovely apartment in a great city
Comfortable apartment in a great location with fantastic view of Sagrada Familia. Perfect weekend break.
Great location with awesome views. One thing I must say is that there wasn't anything in the home to get us started with ease. Had to buy salt and pepper for example. Overall good experience
The apartment is located right in the Eixample district (Eixample Esquerra in Catalan), centrally located neighborhood that borders the neighborhood of Gracia, the old town, the left Eixample and Sant Martí. On the right Eixample we find many of the monuments and buildings that should not be overlooked in a trip to Barcelona.
We highlight the most important Walk: The Paseo de Gracia which connects the district of Gràcia with the old town and where important modernist buildings as La Pedrera are found, the Casa Batllo, Casa Ametller alternating with the best fashion brands worldwide . La Rambla de Catalunya (parallel to Paseo de Gracia Rambla) is another great place where to stroll. Note that in this neighborhood there are many world-famous monuments such as the Sagrada Familia, Casa de les Punxes and Palau Baró de Quadras among others.
We recommend this district for all types of people visiting the city for any reason as it is perfectly located and very well connected to what will be a good starting point to enjoy your stay in Barcelona.
