Chic Apartment in the Heart of Eixample

  • 5 of 5

We had two couples staying at Ingrid's beautiful apartment for a week. Since 2 out of 3 bedrooms are like masters we were all very comfortable. The apartment is very spacious and full of natural light. The furniture is comfortable and beautiful. The kitchen in the apartment was well stocked with cookware, dishes, silverware and high end appliances. Every detail was perfect for our home away from home.

The neighborhood is charming and very safe feeling. The pastisserie downstairs was delightfully convenient for snacks. There were small groceries nearby where we could get the essentials to cook breakfast each morning for the family. The Passieg de Gracia metro station was so convenient. There is also beautiful shopping close by. One of the best parts about staying at this apartment is the views of Gaudi's Casa Batllo (Bah-cho) from the back terrace. Get all your tickets for Gaudi (house/palau, parc, church) in advance and with timed entry. You won't want to waste a moment in this spectacular city.

Wonderful Design & Stay in Barcelona

  • 5 of 5

We all enjoyed our stay at Ingrid's wonderful apartment in Barcelona. The place looks exactly like the pictures. Pintrest comes to life! The design is charming and cozy. Good quality designer furnishings, a detailed welcome brochure filled with recommendations and a perfect location for enjoying the best Barcelona has to offer. It felt like a second home, one that an architect and designer put together for you and placed in the middle of the best shopping and sightseeing. Casa Batlo is literally in your backyard. Everything was very clean when we arrived.

Ingrid was easy to contact, responded quickly to any questions and was accommodating during our stay. There was no one checking in the day we left so we got to leave our luggages in the apt to enjoy our last day in the city which was a big help. We did not get to meet in person due to schedule conflicts but she was attentive and friendly and I have no doubt will do whatever it takes to make sure you have a comfortable stay.

We stayed six days and it was fine but ask for extra towels in advance if you need them for a longer stay, there is a washer and dryer in the apartment, but most dryers in Spain still require you to hang up clothes to finish off drying. So it takes an extra day or so for clothes to dry. This is common in all apartments.

As for recommendations - we were on a shopping trip and this is ground zero for stores on the Passeig de Gracia, Porta del Angel, Ramblas, Born and the many side streets. All the stores are a short walk away we frequented Zara, Mango, Oysho, Massimo Dutti, Bimba y Lola. Many great food options are walking distance as well, Cerveceria Catalana was a favorite stop. There is a bakery and cafe downstairs from the apartment for convenience. Minimarket around the corner and health food grocery a few blocks away. You can also check out the markets in La Boqueria, Santa Caterina or a further 20 min walk is the Sant Antoni Market frequented by more locals than tourists, vendors there are located in temporary stalls now until they finish renovating the building but great products and less expensive than the Boqueria which draws flocks of tourists.

Hope this helped, have a good stay. We look forward to coming back one day.

Great, central apartment

  • 4 of 5

6 of us spent a long weekend in Barcelona, as a surprise for our Mums 70th birthday. We had a fabulous weekend, and as other reviews have mentioned, the location is great for getting around Barcelona and the apartment is really lovely and well appointed. The only point that I think other guests should be aware of is that the third bedroom and shower room do not compare to the other two bedrooms and bathrooms. I have explained in more detail below, but I would like to stress that we adapted and it did not have a negative impact on our stay at all - however, we probably would have booked another apartment if we had known about the small third bedroom.

Our group comprised two couples and 2 single guests. When we were looking at the photos of the apartment we thought that the 2 single guests (70 year old Mum being one of these) could share the twin bedroom. However, the twin bedroom is two single mattresses on a small raised platform and totally unsuitable for a person with movement difficulties as they have to bend down on the floor to get into bed. This meant that the two single guests ended up sharing a double bed (it was Mum and daughter, so not a problem for us) and one of the couples were in the small twin room. The twin room is ideal for kids, but it really is only about 7m² and the only window opens onto the lift shaft. There is a ladder too, which kids would love to use, which accesses a third mattress on a small mezzanine - a bit like a bunk bed. The shower room which is across the hallway, is also very compact.

There is only one hot water tank too, for the entire apartment, so best to try to shower at different times of day if there are 6 people in the flat at one time as there is not really enough hot water for 6 showers at the same time.

Having said that, were we to return to Barcelona, as a smaller group, I would not hesitate to re-book this apartment. Ingrid was easy to deal with, and everything was dealt with ease and minimal fuss.

Owner's Response: The apartment is exactly as it appears in the photos so the problem is yours if you do not look good pictures before booking. I got 200 evaluations Profile of another platform and no one has ever complained about this, before you book you have to know where you are going and what you rent before writing the Bible without logic and any sense. Room 3 bunk is clear pictures if you are not renting older berths to save money, pay a bit more up and go to hotel not the apartment. The hot water works perfectly for 7 people on the ground. It is rented daily for 3 years and no one has complained, now if you while showering needs as I say rent a hotel for 2 no 6 because we know that when floor for 6 people shared showers early in the morning they are not half-hour fast.His whole comment was negative baseless when has not even talked about everything that could be said which is something positive. If you go back to Barcelona will not accept your reservation because I just like getting in my home grateful, friendly and willingness nonnegative and dazzled guests. Thank you for your stay. Good luck Ingrid .

Will be back soon!

  • 5 of 5

The property photos on the website do not do this place justice as it was just stunning and decorated to a high standard. We had fresh decent towels and good quality bed linen.

I was amazed when looking out the balcony we were right next to the 'house of bones' which was one of the main attractions I wanted to see in the city so that made me very happy.

Ingrid was very helpful and was a pleasure to deal with, I couldn't recommend this place anymore and will be back for sure on my next trip to Barcelona.
