Great location, wifi dodgy

  • 3 of 5

The apartment is in a great location, and nicely laid out so that each bedroom has it's own bathroom and was good value. It was nice and clean and had everything we needed. Unfortunately we found the wifi dropped out a lot and was very slow, so that would be my one area for improvement.

Great location, nice place but needs updating.

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay because of the great location it offers. Needs some update. The couch is extremely dirty and the bathrooms need some care. Other than that it was great.

Great location but not so welcoming

  • 3 of 5

The location of the apartment is perfect and most of the apt. very beautiful. I say"most " because the master bedroom and living room/kitchen spaces are really lovely. The other 2 bedrooms do not have windows and have not been made very pretty (they did get air from an inner courtyard air shaft that was very noisy sometimes). This was a bit awkward for us three friends, one having a MUCH better room. It would be more suitable for a family with kids. Also, we never saw Eduardo, the greeter - even after several texts and phone calls to him and the owner and a request for help. The wifi did not work the whole time we were there and there were many remarks in the guest book about this. We nonetheless had a great time in Beautiful Barcelona.

Beautiful Property & Fabulous Location

  • 5 of 5

This was my family's first experience using HomeAway rather than staying in a hotel while on vacation, and we could not have been happier! The apartment is the perfect combination of modern convenience (updated kitchen and baths, WiFi, and HDTV) and Old World Charm (mosaic tile floors, beautiful wood shutters, and high ceilings).

The location cannot be beat. Great restaurants and most of the attractions we wanted to see, including Casa Batllo, La Pedrera, and La Sagrada Familia were within easy walking distance. If we needed to go farther, Metro stations were nearby and taxis were easy to find.

The pictures on HomeAway are an accurate representation of the property. The Master Bedroom, in particular, is gorgeous and has a view onto the beautiful patios of adjacent properties, but the entire apartment is just fabulous!

Any "criticisms" I have are pretty minor and easily fixable. I agree with a previous reviewer that the white furniture is showing some wear, but that honestly wasn't a big deal for us. Everything was very clean and comfortable, and the apartment has a warm, inviting, family home vibe.

The biggest issue for me was the shower in the 2nd bathroom. It is TINY with just enough room for me, a petite woman, to stand up in. It would be really helpful if the owner installed a shelf or shower caddy for shampoo, conditioner, soap, etc. The other two bathrooms have very comfortably sized showers, and we all had plenty of hot water.

Overall, this is a wonderful property, and I would not hesitate to recommend it.

Barcelona apartment

  • 4 of 5

Our family of four stayed in the "Painted in White" Barcelona apartment from 9/17-9/22. We arrived on the 17th after an overnight flight. The owners had already informed us that we would be able to get in before check-in time as there were no tenants before us. That was wonderful as we were exhausted! We were also given the security codes for entering the building & apartment so we could let ourselves in. Again, very helpful. The apartment is as described online. The master bedroom is large with a small bathroom. The other two bedrooms are small, but comfortable. We had one adult child in each room & that worked well for us. Very nice for each to have their own bathroom, also. Kitchen seemed well equipped (we didn't do any cooking). Washer & dryer were handy with markings on the most used cycle for each. Overall clean, but the white love seat in the master bedroom is stained & should be cleaned. Not a big deal, but it's the first room you walk into & so was my first impression. The apartment is in a nice area, we always felt safe. Cafes right downstairs to grab breakfast or drinks in the afternoon. Rooftop terrace has nice views of the city. For our departure, we had called the number posted to arrange a ride to the airport. We were to be picked up at 8 am and by 8:20 our car had not arrived. We called the number but there was no answer. My husband had to scramble to find a large van to carry the four of us & all our luggage in time for our flight. Eduardo did later leave a message on my husband's phone but by that time we were in Paris. This service needs improvement, obviously. Overall, we did enjoy our stay here & would recommend it to others.

Even better than the photos!

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was one of our favorite VRBO's ever! We've stayed at many around the world so that is really saying something! The photos don't totally capture the old world charm and beautiful details. They had everything we could want and more. Our family of four including boy/girl teens loved this place. The bathrooms were mostly tiny but it was terrific for each kid to have their own bathroom - and bedroom. So much charm everywhere from the tile floors to the ceiling mouldings and everything in between. The barreled ceilings in the loft bedroom were a great surprise too. Our greeter Olga could not have been more helpful and sweet. The only downside was the dryer door malfunction but I think they will replace it so no worries there. I saw in a previous review that they replaced the hot water heater after an issue with that so there's PLENTY of hot water for all to shower comfortably. They obviously take wonderful care of their property. We would happily stay in this beautiful apartment on future visits. We feel so lucky to have found it! We enjoyed walking around the neighborhood and were able to walk to all of the major sites from this home base. Also found taxis quickly anytime we needed them. There is an elevator but we enjoyed the stairs in this charming building. So much to see in Barcelona and so many great restaurants - it's hard to single any one place out. Rest assured, if you stay in this flat you will have a wonderful visit. Thank you Olga, Fernando and Lauren for your hospitality in your glorious city. With thanks from four happy SoCal visitors.
