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.

A little bit tatty in a great location

  • 3 of 5

This is an interesting one. The location is very good for most of the sights and we walked everywhere. There were 4 of us and it was good value for all of us and we spent most of our time outside the flat. I had read all the reviews and was assured that all the past issues had been rectified. However, the flat is still tatty and is in need of a real update. Then, it would be marvellous. The furniture is low budget, the bedsheets tired, the towels are still old and grey and there were little ants in the bathroom. The inside of the washing machine was very dusty and we chose not to use it. I did not find the kitchen inviting to use. But it did serve the purpose and we had a lift to take us to the top floor so it had its plusses. If I were the owner I would invest in this apartment and give it a most necessary uplift.

Great apartment in ideal location

  • 5 of 5

My husband, son, and I stayed here for 5 days and it was perfect. Apartment is exactly as in photos. We arrived and it was clean, sunny and comfortable. It faces pretty courtyard and is quiet. Best part is a rooftop deck with chairs and tables. We ate breakfast up there every day. Beautiful view and only a short flight up front this top floor apartment. Shower is good and kitchen is cute and workable. The location is excellent. Building is in nice neighborhood with lots of shops and restaurants nearby. Main attractions are in walking distance and metro is 4 blocks away. The building and apartment are all accessed by code key entry and that makes it very easy. We recommend this and would definitely stay there again.

Lovely apartment in fab location - great value for money

  • 5 of 5

Top floor apartment in the great Eixample district of Barcelona. Location was perfect - safe and lots of locals round and about. Kitchen and bathroom were small but adequate. The bedrooms were a double and twin which was perfect for our family: travelling with two sons aged 11 and 9. The living room was a good space too but we couldn't find any English channels on the TV! The building itself was very quiet and this apartment is at the back, so we didn't get any road noise. The roof top terrace was a real bonus - a great suntrap, quiet with great views of the streets below. Check in was easy with the greeter arriving within 5 mins of us calling him and we were able to check in early.

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.
