There is good shuttle service called Aerobus and runs normally every 15 min. It will then take you to the city centre where you can alight at Placa de Cataluna in the city centre. From there you can catch the metro. (or walk 20 min) and get off in Drassanes (Green line).You can access the apartment after check-in has been processed at our office located only four metro stations away from the apartment.

Once you get off from the Metro, you will see the statue of Colon. Cross Ramblas, go parallel to the sea, take Carrer Ample for a couple of minuts and you will find Carrer D’en Serra. Look for number 8.

Remember that check-in is done at our office located 15 minutes from the apartment with the same green metro line .

Places around: Los Caracoles.

Still considered one of the more typical and traditional restaurants in Barcelona when it comes to Catalan cuisine.

Carrer d' Escudellers, 10.

Exquisite location right on Plaza Real -terrace included-, Les Quinze Nits restaurant does its best in order to accommodate the public attracted by its good value for money.

Av. Marquès de l'Argentera, 19.

Beware of apartment Serra 2

  • 2 of 5

Hello, I have spoken to your Manager about our disappointing stay in Serra 2. She asked me to forward pictures of the problems so she could help make it right. In this e-mail I will attach photos of the apartment conditions. I hope that you can make it right. I list for you some of the issues.

1 black mold on ceiling in the in bedroom bathroom

2 leak from ceiling in bedroom off of kitchen that had a trail of water running to the kitchen. This was the worst bedroom

3 this leak looks like it has been happening for a long time as the wood on the ceiling appears to have rotted

4 there was no window covering in the bedroom so it made the bedroom un usable

5 plaster peeling and bubbling off walls

6 plaster dust falling on living room seating

7 shower head for the hand held shower fell off before use

8 water in the bedroom bathroom could not be adjusted beyond scolding hot even after maintenance man came

I could go on with issues that were not up to standard. I have stayed in many apartments in Barcelona and have never experienced such poor conditions. I have hope that you will make it right by offering a refund. The black mold itself makes the apartment dangerous as black mold is dangerous to your health.

Your place in the center of Barcelona

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay here. Everything is nearby, both city and beach. The apartment is clean and well equipped. Highly Recommended. we were disappointed that we had to leave early because of the canceled flight. Thanks to the available information and good wifi we have arranged our new flight and taxi.

Good Location in Barcelona

  • 4 of 5

This is a very nice apartment, in an excellent location being in the old part of the city and just a short walk from La Rambla, the Cathedral and the main square. The beach is close as well. You can walk everywhere and just down the road is an excellent place for breakfast and good eating places nearby for an evening meal.

The apartment was clean and had everything we needed. It has 3 big bedrooms and plenty of space for a family or a group of people. The kitchen and eating area are large enough to cope with a number of people. The lift opening directly into the apartment is a bonus although as is often the case in Europe the life is small and requires a number of trips up and down for a large group. Not a problem but worth noting. The only other comments are that the water temperature was difficult to adjust in separate bathroom shower and it would be nice to have instructions on how to use the hot water shower system and dishwasher in English to make it easier to use these appliances. A minor issue only.

I would have no hesitation in rent this apartment again or recommending it to friends.

Perfect location, lovely apartment, good service!

  • 5 of 5

Hi! We really loved our stay in Barcelona and the appartment was perfect for us! Placed in the middle of the Gothic quarter we found it perfect for all our desires. You state this is a fully equipped apartment, and it is! There were nothing we missed or hoped should be there. There was some issues with the appartment when we checked in, but you guys sorted them out quicly and we felt that you took our issues wery seariously! All the best to you! The only thing I can point on is that we never recieved a message that you had moved your office from Sant Sever to Valencia. This caused a small panic that we had been tricked and a problem with our luggage as we had to wait and see if you were real or not, but it all sorted out and we founf you ;) We will reccomend you to everyone who we will ever meet that have thoughts about renting an appartment in Barcelona!! Again, all the best to you and thank you for a world class service! Best regards Jorgen Bodtker

Fab girly break..

  • 4 of 5

Apartment was in an interesting area which was a maze of narrow streets with a mixture of residential, business and holiday lets . The apartment was clean and well maintained. It was a bit noisy at night with people walking past. Lots of interesting places to eat and drink close by it is a few minutes walk from the port, les Rumbles and the cathedral. Apartment perfect for a group of friends we would book again if came back to Barcelona. Makes things a lot easier if your taxi from the airport takes you to the office and waits for you when checking in and picking up the keys as office is a 10 min car ride away. Tip if planning to go on the bus tours go early and if possible avoid getting on at the main pick up point,as we queued for 1.30hr in the sun with no shade. The beach is welcome surprise.

Pedro Almodóvar went through the streets of Barcelona as the a character in the film. The director said that he found the same relaxing feeling as Manuela with the help of his artistic director, Antxon Gómez, who lives in Barcelona, Almodóvar chose settings that are very familiar to the people who live in and know Barcelona.
