Hola Carmen. Thank you for everything. The apartment is beautiful, comfortable, so well located - we love it! Your suggestions were perfect and we had a wonderful time! I have rented several houses/apartments through VRBO and I must say that you have been the BEST property manager/owner I have had! Thank you so much! Barbara

Best Location to enjoy and explore Barcelona

  • 5 of 5

We (parents & 11 yr. old son) stayed here 11/18-11/24 and were so happy we chose this apartment. It is clean, well laid out, lots of room with a large master bedroom and closet/ changing room and bathroom. Although we did not cook, the kitchen is well supplied and has a large refrigerator. The washer and dryer were very much appreciated as we only took carry-on luggage. It is within walking distance to all major sights. Although we used public transportation to Park Guell, we walked to the Sagrada from there and then back to the apartment. There are so many cafes, bakeries and restaurants close by. Be sure to go to LaLuna - great food and ambience.

Although we did not get to meet her, Carmen answered all my questions and provided a cellphone # to reach her when we were on our way. We were met at the apartment and shown the workings of all appliances, etc. I do agree with other reviews regarding the noise of this area at night. That said, I would not have traded our location for one which may have been quieter. Earplugs! We would not hesitate to stay here on future visits to Barcelona - our 11 year old loved his "man cave"!!!

Perfect Barcelona location

  • 4 of 5

Perfect location, clean, and well appointed. The approach to the apartment does not reflect what it looks like once you are in the apartment. Although the stairwell is a common area to the building, it does need improvement and along those lines I encountered Carmen who along with a workman was making plans to improve the stair area. Regardless of the stairs, I wholeheartedly recommend this apartment.

Excellent location

  • 4 of 5

The property was very clean. Wifi worked. Large fridge. Close to dining and walking around Born and area.

It is noisy some nights, but that is to be expected in this area. Really perfect location. So much to see and do within walking distance.

The location could not of been better

  • 4 of 5

Just steps from the plaza in front of Santa Maria del Mar.

Breakfast each morning at Bubos just steps away

Bubos also had great olives and bread with tomatofortapas in the evening.

I will say the apartment is quite noisy because of location and the windows

I wished I had brought earplugs with me

The building is very old and the stairwell is a little scary - very dark

The apartment isvbery comfortable and the beds and showers are great
