Great place to stay while exploring Barcelona

  • 5 of 5

Perfect position, close to all the main attractions and all public transport. 15 minute walk to Place Catalunya, Las Ramblas, beach, Jaune 1 metro stop. Clean, picture accurate, air conditioning works well. In the heart of the barrio but quite safe. Great stay started with interaction with Lucas the concierge who explained everything about the apartment and answered general questions about the neighbourhood e.g. food markets, pharmacy to get distilled water for our CPAP machines, nearby restaurants - Pim Pam burgers and takeaway, the brochettes prepared downstairs in the connected restaurants. Picasso Museum right around corner - suggest you stop by around 9 a.m. to get tour at a later time. Princessa street one block away with pastry shops; import store (similar to dollar stores back in Canada); pharmacy; 1 Euro tapas restaurant.

We took a taxi from airport due to the number of bahs - cost 40 Euros (tip included) and Lucas arranged for the taxi back for our return to airport. 2 day hop on-hop off bus ticket gave us one morning to do all of the three lines and then plan out the rest of the day and a half.

I wholehearted endorse staying at this apartment for a great experience in Barcelona!

Perfect position

  • 5 of 5

App in posizione perfetta per scoprire barcellona, vivere al centro delle maggiori attrazioni turistiche ma estremamente silenzioso. Pulito, rispecchia le foto pubblicate. Adatto anche a un soggiorno con bambini (come nel mio caso). Perfect position, close to all the main attractions and all public transport. Clean, picture accurate. In the earth of the barrio but quite, Great stay even with children (as my case). Suggest

Perfect Apartment in Great Location

  • 5 of 5

This was a beautiful clean and comfortable apartment in a very historic, central and convenient location. The welcome on arrival was friendly and informative and all the information needed was provided. Close to historic sites, attractions and surrounded by excellent bars and restaurants. We would highly recommend this apartment to other travellers. Loved the markets, the beaches and the historic sites.

Enjoyable Stay, Kind and Helpful Owner

  • 5 of 5

I have only nice things to say about the owner of this property. It turned out that during the week of our stay, there was some construction going on in the building next door. That meant there was significant noise. When I informed the property owner, she arranged for us to move to another one of her properties. She even took the train into the city and walked us over to the second apartment. She was kind and helpful, turning what could have been a horrible experience into a great one. This was my first trip to Barcelona, and given this experience, it won't be my last. I recommend this apartment--and its owner--wholeheartedly.

Owner's Response: Even if I want to thank the guest for their patience, I only did what should be done in that case. fortunately I had the other apartment that was not rented and we could do the change. I am happy they enjoyed their stay in Barcelona and hope they will contact me again if happens to come back to Barcelona. I am always at the guests disposal because it is very important to permit them to spend a nice vacation and that they keep a positive opinion of the person that rented the apartment. All my best and thank you for your opinion.

Séjour parfait !!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Moi, ma femme et ma fille de 16 ans avons passé un séjour parfait dans cet appartement. Celui ci est conforme en tout point à la description de l annonce. Flavia et Lucas sont des hôtes cordiaux, discrets et disponibles.

Nous sommes arrivés en voiture et avons laissé pour 15 jours celle ci dans le parking bsm moll fula (près du port, 10 minutes à pied de l appartement) pour un forfait de 85 euros.

L appartement est situé dans une petite rue piétonne du quartier el born dans une propriété sécurisée avec presençe dans la journée d'un concierge disponible et serviable. L appartement est au premier étage , spacieux et les pièces bien agencées. La literie est bonne, le linge de bain et de literie nickel !!!!.

La climatisation est efficace . Tout est ok.

La situation est le point fort avec comme distance à pied :

Plage ( celle près du port olympique , platja passeig maritim, moins bondé et sable plus fin que celles près du port barcelonetta) 15 minutes, Ramblas 15 minutes, montjuic 40 minutes, Sagrada familia 30 minutes, parc citadelle 5 minutes,....

Proche de l appartement, restos, commerces, boutiques, marché,....

Le seul bémol est à l arrivée, le bruit provenant de la rue piétonne des passants et des activités des restos mais on s y fait très vite avec l isolation phonique de appartement et la climatisation !!!! Mais surtout en s adaptant au rythme de la vie barcelonaise Aves les horaires de repas décalés par rapport à la France !!!!!

En conclusion, allez y les yeux fermés et encore merci à Flavia et Lucas.

Adios e Gracias 🇪🇸

Owner's Response: Gracias por su extenso comentario sobre el apartamento y me alegra que lo hayan pasado bien por lo que les doy de nuevo las gracias por haberlo elegido. Lamentablemente en agosto y en el centro del Barrio Gotico, el ruido es inevitable y tambien los horarios españoles son diferentes a los franceses. De todos modos pedimos disculpa por el ruido y trataremos de mejorar la insonorización. Gracias, Merci F.
