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.

Very good location

  • 5 of 5

Close to shops, city center and food. Public transport near to hand. Bathroom could do with a little bit of refurbishment but otherwise the appartment was well equipped and spacious.

Comfortable tourist apartment

  • 3 of 5

Very comfortable apartment, although tired & needing an upgrade, it was is mostly as represented. The bedrooms were clean & comfortable, perfect for a family with 2 kids. Although the kitchen was dark & gloomy, it was generally clean & well-stocked. The roof-top terrace was a disappointment - grimy and not a very pleasant place to hang out. The internet didn't work for our entire 4 day stay, and the manager was unable to correct it. The air con functioned fine. Certainly a good location for a brief stay in Barcelona as it is an easy walk to most sights, however, if staying longer in the city then I would look for a quieter location. Somewhat overpriced.

Much more outdated than shown. Only wifi in stairwell. Never had any contact with owners!

  • 3 of 5

We have traveled to Europe many times and are accustomed to the lifestyle and furnishings. Unfortunately, the owners never replied to our texts. The linens were in poor shape. The first time we used a bath towel it fell apart! It was in a great area and fit most of our needs. The only critizism is that the communications were non-existant. Don't count on the wifi either!

Nice apartment but needs updating

  • 3 of 5

This apartment was in a great location, with cafés, bus stops and the tube stop nearby. The facilities were all as described and it was very clean, however the apartment is looking very tired. It is in need of a facelift, new linen and towels and updated kitchen too. The air con, unfortunately, was not particularly efficient and is the first thing we would have changed.

Upon arrival, the cot and high chair we had arranged were not at the apartment so we had to wait a couple of hours before they arrived and we could put our baby to sleep. The map we were promised detailing the local area also failed to arrive. Some kind of welcome pack would have been ideal.

It's also worth noting that although the apartment does have a lift, it is up 8 steps which is a little awkward if you have a pushchair and suitcases.

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.
