|Minimum Stay||2 - 3 nights|
The oversized cityscape images that adorn the walls create a striking impression upon your arrival. Then you see the balcony. Enjoy your morning coffee as you contemplate where the day will take you. If you can tear yourself away, you can enjoy a stroll around this quiet district before heading into town for more excitement.
Towering over the rest of Barcelona, and right next to popular Parc Güell, is the peaceful Carmel area, which boasts its own, less cultivated park.
Take a mini hike through the wild flowers and natural terrain of Parc del Carmel, and you'll be rewarded by breath-taking views of the city and its architecture.
If you're feeling adventurous, take a walk downhill through Barcelona's more tranquil areas, to the famed Sagrada Familia, then jump on the metro for the rest of the city.

The flat is very modern, with all necessary conforts for daily life (dishwasher, dvd player, adsl, etc). Althought it is very small, the space distribution and the decoration make it very pleasant! The location, althought a bit far from the centre, is privilleged due to its proximity to Park Guell and it is also very well communicated! I think is also a safe area. The team is very helpfull: if you need anything you can call them 24/7, and they will, at least. try to solve your problem! I would highly recommend it for a short stay in Barcelona. We had some problems with the electricity, due to a heavy rain, but there was a good and prompt support from the agency team, which compensated for the trouble caused.
The bathroom has no windows and is a bit humid (in fact there are some infiltrations on the wall). Also, the flat has large windows, but it does not get a lot of sun (at least at this time of the year), but the air conditioner works as a charm!
The area around is a bit quiet and it does not have many amenities, but as I said before, we are not far from the centre, and the bus stop is just 5 min away!
As a suggestion, I would include some separate rubbish bins, to allow more easy recycling.
Lovely apartment, clean with everything that you need such as a cooker, hob and washer/dryer. The sofa bed was large and very comfortable. Nice balcony, view directly opposite is not exciting, but if you look to the left then there are amazing views. Good transport links bus just around the corner takes you in to Cataluyna and takes approximately 25 minutes, metro station is a bit further away and is tough going. Quiet residential area. If I had to rate the apartment it would get 4/5. Although the apartment description says that the location is in a laid back mountain suburb, it really should say that the apartment is in a steep hilly area. My son uses a wheelchair and we had to stop using the metro because the hilly roads were to steep to go up and down pushing a chair. The roads might also be difficult to negotiate for older people and those with illnesses such as Asthma. The only other problem was the shower that caused the floor to get wet everytime it was used. Other than that the apartment was lovely.
The apartment was well equipped, the apartment is almost new. The neighborhood is quiet and good. Glass wall in the bathroom should be between shower base and toilet not between toilet and sink.
Well furnished, the apartment owners were easy to contact and very professional in their face-to-face and phone dealings, good location near Parc Guell, decent local amenities, the inclusion of a tv, dvd player and iPod dock were appreciated. Few niggles with some of the furniture, the bathroom shower door was inexplicably badly positioned (the shower flooded the bathroom floor when used), the apartment wasn't clean when we arrived (although that was sorted fairly promptly), the shower kept going cold in the evening for some reason.
the balcony, clean, kitchen was complete, nice enviremont, friendly people, just a little walk to the metro, we will like to come back
