Guestbook comments from the owner

My wife and I stayed at this lovely apartment for four nights. The location is great and the apartment has everything you need for a nice stay. The owner was also very helpful and friendly. We hope to go back again sometime.

It gave us a chance to experience what its really like to live in Barcelona.

Very comfortable apartment with everything you need. Plenty of DVDS, toys, books and UK TV to keep the kids occupied while getting ready for days out or for unwinding in the evening. The owners were very friendly and helpful.

Overall, a great few days, great value for money and will definitely be back again soon.

Ideally located apartment

  • 4 of 5

David met us promptly when we arrived (we were supposed to gain access at 1 pm but I texted David because we had arrived 30 mins early and he met us outside the apartment within 10 minutes). It is in a fabulous location with tapas bars a couple of streets away (we spent every evening there). The apartment had everything we needed and was well suited for our family's trip. The only negative was that the bathroom could do with some TLC but I'm sure David has that in hand. Overall we would recommend this apartment to anyone wishing to stay in Barcelona.

Great Location

  • 5 of 5

Nice property with all the amenities you'd need for your holiday! Nice to have some UK TV channels, not that you'll want to waste time watching telly. We cooked dinner in the apartment a couple of times and the kitchen is well equipped. Good to have a washing machine too. Close to the Metro (which is really cheap and easy to use), walking distance (20 minutes) to Las Ramblas and Port Vell, and really close to the Magic Fountain (recommended!). Good communication with owner David, and friendly check in and out with Angel and Mari.

A note on Barcelona itself. We were there when the terrorist attack on Las Ramblas occurred, but apart from that night itself we never felt unsafe. The police were highly visible and everyone we met in the cafes and restaurants was really friendly. Don't let the attacks put you off the city.

This apartment is diamond in a rough. No, it is not a palace or 5 star hotel. It is clean, well kept, and in an awesome location. My family spent 5 days in this 2 bedroom apartment. We have a 14 year-old daughter and 16 year old son. It apartment worked great. The WIFI was fast and dependable--my kids loved it! Beds were comfortable and clean. It was GREAT having a washing machine in the apartment.

Best part was the LOCATION! It was about a 300 meter walk to the METRO! It took a straight to La Familila, Guell Park, La Rambla. Bus 300 meter walk. The bus drops you off at the beach. Close to shopping. Close to Mont Juic. Tapas were available with 100 meter walk. I recommend Pincho J's. Fantastic grocery store about 300 meter walk. The location is so great that we could of done Barcelona in 4 days instead of 5.

A couple minor concerns. The TV was good, but limited English channels. There in only one bath and the toilet is separated.

David and his wife were great work with as well. Very professional and accommodating! I would highly recommend this apartment. This is a GREAT VALUE!

Good value, fantastic location

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here for 4 nights with our 2 teenage daughters. The apartment was simply furnished and very clean with comfortable, spacious accommodation for the 4 of us. The kitchen enabled us to self-cater - there is a great greengrocers and a supermarket just 3 minutes away on the main street. We didn't eat in a lot though as just 1 minute away there is a pedestrianized street full of inexpensive bars and restaurants (Blai). There are several bars that serve 'pinchos' - small snacks on slices of French bread, incredible value at 1euro each. The bars operate on a self-service system and tot up the number of snacks you have eaten. Great value for a snack or a light meal.

The apartment is in a fantastic location, not at all touristy, but within 15 minutes walk of La Rambla. Most of the major tourist sites are in walking distance and for those that are further afield, like Parc Guell and the Sagrada Familia, the metro station is just 5 minutes away.

I would highly recommend this apartment for it's value, local situation and position for sight-seeing.
