Perfect Choice

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I and two other couples shared this apartment for five nights. It was a perfect choice. The location is ideal at the center of everything but on a quite pedestrian street. There are great restaurants, bars and grocery stores very short walks from the apartment. All three bedrooms have very comfortable beds and are easy to make dark and cool for sleeping. The kitchen is attractive and fully equipped. The phone for local calls and very good WiFi are a definite plus.

We took advantage of the optional service offered by the owners to pick us up at the airport and then transport us to the cruise ship terminal at the end of our stay. The fees for both were reasonable and extended the host's hospitality from the beginning to the end of our stay.

This will be our first choice to book for a return trip to Barcelona.

Beautiful, Well-located, Spacious, Supplied with all our needs

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful apartment was in a perfect location, near many shops, a large grocery store only a couple of blocks away, and a great open-air market. The location is really optimal for both sight-seeing as well as going out for eating and shopping. The place had a lot of personal touches and it felt like the owners really enjoyed their work in caring for their property and clients. It felt like they thought of everything, down to offering maps for us to use and good advice on navigating the city. The kitchen had everything we needed, the washer & dryer were convenient, there were plenty of towels, the WiFi worked well, etc. We felt completely comfortable and grateful for the hospitality of the owners. We enjoyed our visit and highly recommend this property.

great location, excellent guidance to exploring Barca and surrounding area

  • 5 of 5

Just back from July 2016 week staying in Valentin's El Ravel area apt with my 3 teen aged sons and my father. We had an excellent time and walked or took the Metro (subway) all over. The apartment is well located on a pedestrian street just a block from La Rambla and 2 blocks from Plaza Catalunya and Plaza Universitat and their Metro stops. There are many small, intimate places serving delicious Catalan and Spanish cuisine style food within 2 blocks of the apt. Also several bakeries and breakfast spots even closer for a morning caffe and pastry. Also a Starbucks 1/2 block away. The apt has 2 sets of twin beds in two good sized rooms, with one set being arranged so that they can function as a single large bed. There is also a separate queen sized bed in its own, more private room. There are 2 full baths with showers (only) and a half bath. There is a smallish but well equipped kitchen which has been recently renovated. There are many helpful travel guides and books in the apt for help in deciding which local activities and sights to see. The entire apt was renovated within the past few years and is architecturally quite lovely. From these points alone I would heartily recommend staying here to anyone wishing to enjoy Barca. What made the experience especially great however was Valentin's sister Agatha's help with exploring the city and the surrounding area: before the trip I emailed Valentin and asked for his help setting up tours and getting my group to and from the airport. He offered his sister's assistance, and she and her husband met us at the airport and took us back it the other end of the trip. She also set up 3 trips outside the city: to Monserrat (1+ hours away), to her family's swim club in Masnou on the Mediterranean (30 min away), and to the Poblat Monastery and town of Montblanc and to the Mas Forestar vineyard and winery (1 and 1/2 hrs away). She drove us and gave us a personal tour at each of these sites. This combination of in--town and out of town experiences made our vacation extra special and gave us a richer insight into the Catalan region of Spain. Our only regret is that we didn't have time to have her and her family to teach us how to cook paella and make sangria in the local way...alas, next time!

Centrally located "home base" for sightseeing in Barcelona

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of six, with four children ages 4 through 13. We really enjoyed our stay in this apartment, because it was very convenient to walk to Las Ramblas and the Gothic Quarter. Getting picked up for tours was a little more challenging because the street below is very small: we ended up either walking to the next major intersection, or in one case, to the closest hotel. The myTaxi app only worked about half, or less than half the time for fetching a taxi to that location; hailing a taxi from a busier intersection worked better.

We had a ton of space to spread out and relax while we were there, and slept well. The high speed Internet access was quite useful for us and for the kids, and having three bathrooms meant that no one had to wait. The kitchen was fully outfitted with plates, bowls, utensils, mugs, even a variety of beer and wine glasses.

The apartment is on the second floor, with elevator access, but we used the stairs unless we were bringing luggage in or out. We appreciated the laundry machine, although the wash and dry cycles took a couple hours each, so planning ahead is useful.

We were very happy with the family who own this apartment, who gave all of their contact information, tips on the city, and were very concerned with ensuring that the apartment was perfectly clean and ready for us. Thanks!

Unbeatable location in Barcelona

  • 5 of 5

We looked at several apartments in Barcelona and were lucky to come across this one as the location could not be better. We had six adults (three couples) sharing the facility. The three bedrooms were completely adequate although the main bedroom and the smallest bedroom are separated by pocket doors and share the full bath. This was OK with us since that bedroom was being used by one of our sons and his wife but it might not be to everyone's tastes. The apartment is about a five minute walk to Parc Catalunya, a couple of blocks to Las Ramblas, fifteen minutes to Casa Battlo. A small grocery is just around the corner and a larger grocery is a ten minute walk. The full size washer and dryer were highly appreciated and well used. We did not spend a lot of time in the unit but when we did we found the living room and dining room perfectly adequate for our needs. The owner and his family were very good to work with and most accommodating. Should we return to Barcelona this apartment would be the first place I would check for availability.

Bay Area, California

Fantastic location. Large bedrooms.

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was the last leg of our 3 country trip through Europe, hence our finale. The location could not be better. Close to everything (public transportation, action, shopping, food, entertainment, etc.), yet far enough from the tourist besieged Las Ramblas. The bedrooms are spacious, the ceilings high and the tiled floors lovely. I especially like the two bedrooms with balconies that open to the buzz of activities of the alley way. The living room, kitchen and dining area is a little bit small in comparison to the bedrooms, but access to cheap eats is abundant and too many things to sit still in the apartment all day. The apartment is very secure with the locked lobby door, fortress like front door and the elaborate lock system. I don't think the army could break through that door without explosives. Nothing like that in the U.S. We really enjoyed our stay in Barcelona and the apartment really added to that enjoyment. The alleys around the apartment are really fun to explore. They change throughout the day depending on what shops open or close. There's constant motion and interesting things to eat, drink or watch. I would definitely rent this apartment again next time in Barcelona.
