Guestbook comments from the owner

This apartment was perfectly situated near the metro station and within walking distance of many of Barcelona's main tourist attractions. It is really nicely furnished and well equipped with crockery and cutlery. The family had a wonderful time, and we hope to come again.

Not nearly as good as the pictures. Misleading !

  • 2 of 5

Let me start off by saying that this was our first VRBO experience outside of the US. We've had wonderful stays in places such as upstate Michigan and NYC within the past couple years utilizing your service.

I'll start with the positives; Great location, nearly all of targeted visit sites were within walking distance. We felt very safe staying in this neighborhood, lots of foot traffic in the streets well after midnight. The Internet service was solid. The apartment was turned over to us on time and it was in clean condition.

The apartment was in poor condition and in desperate need of basic maintenance i.e., walls throughout the apartment were scuffed up with marks in dire need of painting. The few linens ( towels) were provided were at least ten years old and had turned gray from its original white shade. The blankets for the beds were also very old and faded. We only got about 3 days worth of toilet paper for the two of us. Washing and drying clothes was a day long process that required constant supervision as the french made equipment was very inefficient. Drying a medium size load took 5 hours utilizing the highest temperature setting.

We feel we overpaid for this property and that the images we were allowed to view painted a misleading picture of the quality of the apartment. Case in point; took a three day trip to Madrid, stayed at a Marriott property four blocks away from the Atocha train station in the heart of town

paying only $80 euros per night.

Nice apartment, great location

  • 4 of 5

The apartment was in a nice neighborhood, very convenient to many sights. We were able to walk everywhere we wanted to go. The apartment was well equipped, and we especially appreciated having a washer drier. It was nice to have a separate sitting area, kitchen and 2 bedrooms. All of the rooms were spotlessly clean. The owner responded immediately to every question I had by email and gave thorough answers. He was accommodating and friendly.

Not very clean appartment

  • 2 of 5

The location was good, but the apartment was not well taken care of. There were ants in the bathroom which made it undesirable! We had no hot water the first day, and then the hot water temperature was going on and off. The coffee pot was cracked, and we cut our hand washing it, the fridge door never closed shut properly. All these little issues make for a worrisome vacation. I would not stay here again.

Owner's Response: We are sorry that you didn't like the apartment. You have notified us only about the issue with hot water, and this problem was fixed. The coffee pot also was replaced. The apartment was cleaned the day before your arrival.

Jackpot in Barcelona

  • 5 of 5

Just as it appeared on the website. Promptly met at the agreed upon time by one of the apartment's representatives. She showed us around the apartment and reviewed the use of the washer (and dryer-yeah) as well as going over safety pointers and recommendations for restaurants. She was available by phone and email for additional questions. The apartment was clean and quiet.There was plenty of hot water for showers, wifi and central air. We opted to use the stairs but were thankful for the elevator on move in and move out days. Convenient to many major attractions but not in the busy part of town.

Fantantastic

  • 5 of 5

This apartment and the ladies who take care of the it were great. We were a family of 4, stayed for 10 days and had a wonderful experience. The apartment was clean, spacious and within walking distance to the metro and bus. The neighborhood was very safe with 2 grocery stores just down the block and numerous bakeries in the area. There was a great pizza restaurant called A. Gianni on the next block. We loved Barcelona and would absolutely stay in this apartment again.

Hundreds of apartments searched and we hit the jackpot with this one!

  • 5 of 5

After painstakingly researching where to stay for our nine night visit, we choose this apartment. Clean, comfortable, spacious and well equipped, we were at the rear of the building, so noise was not a problem. Easy walk to Metro, Concepcio Market and several decent places to eat nearby. also a fifteen minute walk to Passeig de Gracia, five or six more to Placa Catalunya and less than five to Sagrada Familia. There's also a rooftop deck with tables and chairs. Great people! Don't forget to visit the Gracia area too (perhaps a fifteen minute walk). This neighbourhood has a great vibe, very different to the rest of the city.

Lauren, Angela and Marcel at Negre apartements are really great people!
