Perfect for our family
The apartment was in perfect condition-very clean ,modern and comfortable. The four of us didn’t even use the third bedroom because the other two were spacious. Bathrooms were plenty big too. The location was ideal because it was on a street filled with wonderful restaurants and bars. Next door was the most fabulous bakery and chocolate shop. One street over was the Barcelona version of 5th Avenue. Metro stations a few blocks away and walkable to many prime tourists spots.
If we were to visit Barcelona again, we would stay there again!

When we first arrived to the property, we were beyond thrilled at the location. The property is right in the middle of the restaurants, shopping and energy that Barcelona has to offer. Right outside your front door is a quaint bakery (you must order the hot chocolate and churro combo). The linens, pillows, beds towels we're top of the line and very comfortable. A quick walk and you are in the middle of the Gotic district and many other landmarks of Barcelona. We would absolutely stay at this location again in the future.
Really nice apartment but felt a little abandoned by the owner.
The actual place is five stars. The communication from Ingrid, the owner, not so good.
Admittedly, I was unable to dl the VRBO app on to my cell phone but I made that very clear. Instructions for meeting her rep (Manu) did not come in until the day before we flew and three or four texts (sent to both Ingrid and Manu) sent while we were staying there were never returned. On our way out, the next guests were just arriving and they shared a similar feeling regarding the poor responses. And, judging from the communications that the next occupants were exchanging with Ingrid, she (and Manu) certainly got my texts but chose to ignore them.
The intro to the place was pretty rushed and we were told that instructions/combo for the safe would be forthcoming... never got them and we were not able to use the safe for the four days we were there. Additionally, we were supposed to get info on a nearby gym but never got the info. Overall, these were not huge issues but I can't give five stars when there was so much room for improvement in this area.
Having said that... the place was slick (could have used a couple more towels) and the bed was clean and location of the place was really perfect. I don't regret the decision to rent here and was not in the least disappointed with the apartment.
Flat was in the perfect location and had everything we needed to enjoy 5 days in Barcelona.
Wonderful Apartment in Fantastic Location
Our family stayed here for four nights and loved it! It was perfect for myself, my husband, and our two children (ages 12 and 15). The apartment was exactly as it appeared in the photographs and functioned wonderfully. We were amazed how quiet it was being in the middle of the city and loved the outdoor terrace, which gave us a great view of Gaudi's Casa Batllo. For us, the location could not have been better. Rambla Catalunya is a beautiful tree-lined street with many lovely outdoor restaurants, cafes and interesting and fun shops. It's also within easy walking distance of many top attractions, including La Rambla, the Gothic Quarter, Plaça de Catalunya and the Barcelona Cathedral. The subway station is also very close by and was an easy jumping off point for several adventures, including a day trip to Monserrat and Camp Nou--the stadium for team FC Barcelona. We would definitely return to this apartment on our next visit to Barcelona!
Stylish apartment in great location!
We really enjoyed our stay in this stylish apartment (pictures 15-46). Casa Batllo is around the corner and La Pedrera is just a few blocks away. We walked most of the time to get to the Gothic Quarter or El Born, but it's also very easy to take the Metro from this location. Passeig de Gracia is on the next block - you can take L4 (La Pau) to Jaume (close to Picasso Museum).
It was great to have a bakery right downstairs and it's a 5 minute walk to Pepa PLA restaurant (so good!) and Oma Bistro (for brunch/lunch). La Dama restaurant, located in Casa Sayrach on Avinguda Diagonal, is only a 15-20 walk from the apartment.
We would definitely stay here again.
