We really enjoyed our stay. The apartment was just perfect. The terrace is very nice to have a drink and enjoy a lovely sunset. What a wonderful city! Breda, Josee & Paule, Montreal, Canada

Charming welcoming comfortable convenient.

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was exactly what you dream about for a visit in Barcelona. It was like having your very own home away from home. The location was central to many many major areas to visit. Just blocks from Sagrada Familia. The roof top was so nice to sit and have wine after a long day at the beach. The apartment was furnished with everything you need. I hope to visit again. Thank you Eduardo for being there if we needed anything. Thank you and Lauren & Fernando for letting us share your lovely home.

Great location, but ................

  • 2 of 5

I hate to write negative reviews, so I will start on a positive note: great location. Walking distance to all important places, museums and restaurants. The apartment was nice, with old charm.

Now to a bad news: when we arrived air conditioning was out. And it was out all 10 days. We were provided fans in each room, which helped a little. Someone came by to "fix" it, and we were told it was fixed, but it was not. That was a huge bummer. We stayed end of July beginning of August, the hottest time.

Next: no Wi-Fi. The only place we could get a little connection was right next to the front door. Just imagine 4 of us standing next to the front door trying to get a connection with our loved ones.

Next: the washer did not work. We could not wash our dirty clothing. The good thing was we also traveled to Seville and we brought all out dirty laundry with us.

One more thing that I want to mention just incase you decide to stay at this apartment. Shower was impossible to use because it would only provide cold or hot water, nothing in between.

We did complain to the owner and got a small refund for our trouble.

Expectd more 😕

  • 3 of 5

We arrived and only to find out there was no air conditioning, although they left fans it was to hot to sleep .it would have been nice had they informed us about theses things instead I had to keep trying to contact them , I understand these things happen , but I'm the one who had to get upset and ask for compensation & if they could please move us to another apartment seeing as they have many in this building , after 2 nights of our 4 night stay they offered us another apartment with air and compensation for the inconvenience, in grateful for that . Then , another big issue there supposed to Internet and none of them work it was almost impossible to send a message, this left us disappointed, seeing as my husband had to work a bit online we had to find a place where he could connect his computer and this cost us money and time out of one of our days . The upside is that it's nice the apartments roomy good location, beds not very comfortable but clean , I would recommend this place but beware no internet, and in the hot months make sure you have air conditioning!!!!!!!

Great apartment in a perfect area!

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in this simple, but lovely apartment. It was just the right size for us as two single travelers and offered us everything we needed for our 4 day stay. The location was perfect and we had a wonderful time enjoying the many wonders Barcelona offers.

Great flat, awesome location

  • 5 of 5

The flat was on a perfect location in Barcelona with several small stores around, very close to all public transportation. The best thing of the flat was that it looked from the period but still with modern facilities. Beds were confortable
