Clean apartment. Good location.

  • 4 of 5

Our apartment was clean and neat with enough towels and bedding for our needs. We never used the kitchen as we were there for a short stay, so I can't comment on that. The air conditioning was not working, and the first night we would have liked it to cut down on street noise. One shower was great, the other a bit small. Loved the creperie downstairs!

Good Value

  • 4 of 5

For our group of 7 (2 parents, 5 young adults), this apartment worked out quite well, especially since it is difficult to find a place for so many people. The location is decent--just a few blocks from La Sagrada Familia, and a 6€ or so cab ride from Las Ramblas. Loved the market (a mini-"Boqueria") just down the street where we could stock up on bread, cheese, ham, fruit etc. As noted in other reviews, most of the rooms are smaller than they seem in the photos, especially the 2nd bath, the smaller bedrooms and the dining nook (very narrow space to get all of us in for breakfast.) I regret not remembering the rooftop space, which we never saw. We did have a couple of "old apartment"-type issues (a hidden broken leaky pipe under the shower, warped doors that jammed) that were attended to and fixed immediately, with many apologies. The street is surprisingly noisy, our first night (a Tuesday) I was distracted by the traffic that continued all night. After that, for whatever reason, I was able to sleep well. We were able to happen upon a few good restaurants within walking distance, there were many options.

Almost perfect

  • 4 of 5

We recently stayed in this Apartment for 5 days with 3 other couples. As the lucky couple who stayed in the Master bedroom (we drew for the bedrooms), I would rate the accomodation excellent. However, I know some of the others found their bedrooms rather cramped. Also the smallest bathroom is very, very small. The apartment itself is very well maintained and well appointed. The rooftop terrace was an extra we didn't know about ahead of time, but was a great find. The Eixample location is excellent. The management office was right next door and the staff were exceptionally personable and helpful. We packed a lot of sightseeing in using the metro and trains and ate at some wonderful restaurants. Only wish we could have stayed longer. Gracias - Brenda

Lovely apartment

  • 5 of 5

My family of 5 adults stayed at the apartment in October and had a wonderful visit. We loved the Eixample neighborhood ... very safe and quiet, yet a short walk to Sagrada Familia and the Gaudi sights on Passeig de Gracia. The subway is just around the corner. The weather was ideal, so having use of the rooftop terrace was really enjoyable. The apartment was spacious and very well maintained. Having a washer and dryer was perfect. Gracias to Marcelo for all your help!
