LARGE 1 bedroom apt w / a very comfortable sleeper sofa (comfortably sleeps 3)

The best views in Barcelona ! Only 3 minutes walking to Barcelona's best beaches. Only a few minutes from the world famous Ramblas. This Barcelona luxury apartment is stylish and new. You can enjoy your days at the beach and come home and quickly be in the centre of Barcelona.

Barcelonetta also has many wonderful restaurants/bars

a fresh market just behind that has everything ....... You can have breakfast/lunch/dinner facing the beautiful Mediterranean Sea and may never want to leave this great area of Barcelona. From one side of this 7th floor flat, you can overlook the harbour and also look over Barcelona's magical skyline as the sun sets. On the other side there are two balconies with views of the sea north . Even on the warmest days there is a wonderful breeze that flows through this quiet haven above the city.

Truly million dollar views.

The flat sleeps 4 comfortably with one large bed and a new large sleeper sofa at the other end of the flat which is over 65m2 and the new bathroom is quite large and comfortable

Why Owner chose Ciutat Vella

my apt has only 5 star reviews... my guests love it and my photos are NOT professionally taken...... some apt renters make their apt look better than it actually is

Mine is better than it looks and it is a very comfortable flat to be in .... my neighbors are super and quiet

Everything is provided here also .... Cleaning is included in price as is WiFi

My apt is very Airy and open ...... not easy to find in BCN

Guestbook comments from the owner

Amazing Luxury Apartment Affordable Price

  • 5 of 5

Hi! I never been to Barcelona before and I was looking for affordable place to stay that has all the amenities. The apartment is centrally located near everything. The restaurants are to die for. The beach is extremely close. Luz took very good care of my wife and I. I plan on making a return trip in the future.

I am a very picky person and this apartment was very clean. I truly love the decor of it.

Thanks

Great views, not modern or luxurious or clean.

  • 1 of 5

We booked this apartment through Home Away for June 18th to June 28th of 2016. The location is great and otherwise the apartment is terrible. You are immediately greeted by a musty smell that permeates the entire apartment. The owners personal clothing and miscellaneous items are laid out in assorted piles. The space was neither modern, new, nor luxurious as advertised. The “modern and new” kitchen and dining area were grimy with grease stains on the walls and furniture. The appliances did not work properly. The dining area and furniture was dirty. The “new modern bathroom” was neither new nor modern. The fixtures were old and the bathroom itself was filthy with used personal belongings strewn throughout. The “luxurious bedroom” was caked with dirt on the walls and floor boards. The sheets were old and worn. Not only was the apartment not at all as advertised, but the space was also clearly not appropriate for rentals. Used personal items were strewn throughout the apartment, with dirty laundry shoved into cabinets. Given that we arrived at the apartment in the early evening of June 18th, we had no choice but to stay there for one sleepless night. The next day, I contacted the owner to let him know the space was not as advertised. Upon returning to the USA from my trip, I again contacted the owner and asked for a refund. I was looking to get money back for the 9, out of 10 nights paid for, that we did not stay at the unit. The renter refused to accommodate in any way.

Home Away is useless as they do nothing to document the accuracy of the listing. If you are foolish enough to book this apartment do not look to Pay Pal for any help even with clear cut documentation if you find the rental unsatisfactory. Both of us are in our 70’s and have travelled extensively throughout the world and have never encountered this type of situation before. Barcelona is amazing and we were fortunate to find a great hotel (greater expense) to spend the rest of our trip.

Not A Good Fit For This Couple

  • 2 of 5

As a seasoned VRBO/HomeAway users for many years in numerous locations both in the US and abroad, this was by far the least acceptable rental we had reserved (we loved the one we booked in Paris on the same European trip). However, This rental was definitely not suited for our needs.

We always check the reviews of any place we intend to request and the vast majority of reviews on this place were excellent. We did read the most recent single poor review and dismissed it based on the owners’ response. Our mistake. Many of the issues noted by the writer of this post were fairly accurate.

The apartment is far different from the description except for the location. It was neat but wouldn’t describe it as freshly cleaned. The kitchen was dim and the lighting only partially worked, with rigged extension cords dangling from light attachments, one over the sink and another over the stove. The oven and stove were problematic. The freezer in the refrigerator was stacked with pots and pans and only later did we find where a small dorm size frig was located. There is AC, though in the two hours we were there, the bedroom never really cooled down despite it working full force.

So with limited AC, a dim kitchen and (thinking) no freezer, my wife and I decided this was not a place to spend a week in the summer. Our decision was confirmed when the elevator broke down as we tried to get our luggage down from the 5th floor. There was no way we were going to be put into the position of having to use six flights of stairs for a week.

We have not made a request for any refund as we made the choice to select this apartment, albeit a poor one for our own comfort.

March 2016 Update to this review. I saw that the owner had ‘revised’ his original post so I wanted to clarify a couple of his new additions to the first post. At no time did the owner offer us “two free nights” to see if the elevator could be quickly repaired. Nor did he offer to accommodate us at “a friends apartment in the next building over”. Neither of these offers ever came up in any conversation while we were in the apartment or after we left. And finally the maid only spoke to us through her son who worked to interpret for his mom. Again, she never made any comment about fixing the elevator. I would advise caution in dealing with the owner at this Barcelona location if he can fabric a conversation that that never took place.

The views

  • 5 of 5

It's my third year here in Barcelona and I must say this city never stops to amaze me. I always stay in this apartment because I love having my breakfast on the little balcony overlooking the port it just never gets old. The beach is a 5 minute walk away, lots of little restaurants.. The AC made my nights very comfortable. Two words, thank you.
