Overview

Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday apartment in La Vila Olímpica del Poblenou - THE BLUE HOUSE of BARCELONA

FANTASTIC APARTMENT OF LUXURY TO 5 MINUTES OF THE HEART OF THE CITY

The Blue House was created in 1992 by reason of holding Olympic Games in Barcelona (where the athletes lived) and so was baptized by his warmth and magnificent sea views. In the mornings you wake up seeing the sunrise and the sea from the terrace and breakfast quietly in her family. Then you can stroll the beaches, swim or go from the Olympic Port to Port Vell enjoying. If you go with children can go to the Parque de la Ciudadela (the largest in Barcelona) and go to the zoo (5 min. On foot). In the Olympic Village there are many things to do, but especially at night when the atmosphere heats fill the trendy bars and the best restaurants in town or at the Olympic Port Borne, all without having to take transport. In the same farm that the C. Comercial La Vila where has all the facilities and supermarket. We facilitate a free guide to all the city tourist information and clarification that you may need on the day of arrival.

Suitability:
  • children welcome
  • pets considered
  • wheelchair accessible

Excellent location within Barcelona

  • 4 of 5

The property has wonderful views over the Olympic Port and is within easy walking distance of the city centre, beaches and many tourist locations. Five of us stayed for twelve days, including my 92 year old physically disabled father. The apartment is fantastic for disabled visitors. The lift is right outside the front door and the apartment is easy to move around in a wheel chair. My father loved the view.

I was going to give the apartment five stars, but I am going to fine Ignacio one star, as on arrival at the apartment he fined us fifty Euros for arriving after 21.00, even though we HAD NOT been told about this in the contract sent before our arrival. This punishment we found to be unfair as we had struggled to get me father onto and off the plane at Gatwick after a near two hour delay that was out of our control. Therefore by the time we arrived at the apartment we were exhausted, to be fined was not the welcome we expected.

Additionally I do not think that you would expect to find nine lightbulbs missing, no plug in the kitchen sink, two beds with no bed linen, no clocks working and the hairdryer missing on arrival at a luxury apartment. These should have been checked before our arrival.

Overall, the apartment was suitable for our needs but perhaps Ignacio needs to work on his customer care.

Great stay in this lovely apartment

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 7 people had a fantastic stay in the Blue House. Spacious and comfortable with a spectacular view of the sea from the balcony. The kitchen was fully equipped and there is a large supermarket located in the square at the entrance to the block which is very convenient. The beach is a 3 minute walk away!

Ignacio, the host, was very quick to respond to any of our queries and was most accommodating. We would very happily return to this property :) I have stayed in many holiday apartments in Barcelona and this has been my favourite!

Spacious, clean, well maintained, good location

  • 5 of 5

We were 3 single adults and one couple so we used all the bedrooms on both floors. One guest was in a wheelchair and we can confirm that the flat is wheelchair friendly on the main floor. We found the flat clean and the kitchen well equipped. We chose the Blue House because of it's location and the accommodation it offered. We were not disappointed in any way with our choice. The view from the balcony is great and we often sat outside til Midnight. Although there is traffic on the main road it is a nice, cool place to sit. The traffic noise was no problem for us. The location of the Blue House is great, near the sea and the Olympic Marina is nearby where we ate most evenings - plenty of restaurants to choose from. The supermarket is next door which was great. The bus Stop is a few minutes away. All the buses are wheelchair accessible. Ignacio was great and very helpful, especially on the last day as he helped us with the Taxi arrangements - or rather with the problem with no Taxis being available due to them being on strike in the whole of Barcelona. But as it was at the end of our holiday we got to know the bus routes and so no problems taking the bus to the airport. We would book a holiday in the Blue House again on our next trip to Barcelona. Thank you Ignacio, we had a memorable stay in your apartment.

Owner's Response: Dear George and family Thank you very much for your comments. I am glad that you have enjoyed the fantastic terrace with a view to the sea and until the nights! The location like your good you say, it is unsurpassable, with all his services of day after day and to only 15 minutes a foot or 2 stops of meter to the heart of the city.... In The Blue's maintenance House there was done a reform and change of furniture of design in the year 2014. I like that the guests find very clean and comfortable everything! I wait to return to meet! Ignacio Torrens THE BLUE HOUSE

We stayed for 5 nights in The Blue House with 7 persons. The Blue House is a very nice apartment at a great location. From the balcony there is a great vieuw over Port Olimpico, Marina and the Mediteranian Sea. The beach is on a walking distance, 5 minutes.

I can recommend this apartment to everyone who is planning to visit the fantastic city Barcelona..
