Absolutely incredible stay!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I spent a wonderful week in Barcelona and we couldn't have been happier with our stay at this gorgeous, well-situated apartment. It is comfortable, roomy and surprisingly quiet, considering its outstanding location right in the downtown area. You are minutes walk to La Rambla, the big department store, "El Corte Ingles" and the quaint little alleyways of the historic shopping area. Judit met us when we arrived and provided a great deal of information about things to do and see. The apartment is outstanding and provides a warm and well-appointed home base for a a stay in this incredible city. Would come again in a heartbeat!

Great Location, Great Apartment

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is well appointed with kitchen pot/pans, coffee maker, blender, etc. It also has a washer and dryer which work perfectly. Arrangements with Judit were easy; and when we checked into the apartment David was very helpful about the apartment and where everything was and how the air conditioning worked. He also had a wealth of information for us - where the closeset grocery store was, what sights not to miss, etc. (Judit was out of town).

The apartment itself is in a great location. We walked to everything. We loved being in the El Borne neighborhood, very close to many great restaurants, the Rambla and the Barri Gothic area. The beds are comfortable (we didn't use the 2nd bedroom) and having 2 bathrooms saved us time getting ready (the wall between the two bathrooms does not extend all the way up to the ceiling, but it wasn't an issue for us). This is a great apartment with plenty of room. I would recommend to stay here.

Great stay

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in Barcelona at this apartment.

Judit did a great intro to us at the apartment. She also helped us arrange an early morning taxi.

It is well equipped, yet we never really used the kitchen.

We enjoyed the quick access to the metro and walking distance to other areas.

The washing machine worked well. We enjoyed the couch and chairs as well as the large tables to plan our days.

Per some of the other comments, there are oddities. Partial walls between bathrooms, no A/C in the 2nd bedroom, and small beds in the 2nd room.

All-in-all a great experience.

Owner's Response: Thanks Robert and family. We always appreciate a nice review. only to comment, that may be helpful. The single beds on the second bedroom have standard size 90x180cm and we believe that centralized air conditioning is powerful enough to maintain a good temperature throughout the apartment. Hoping we'll see you another time in Barcelona. My best wishes !

Wonderful Location, perfectly equipped apartment.

  • 4 of 5

This is a stylish, well equipped apartment located within easy walking distance to most major sights and shopping. All arrangements through Judit were friendly and professional including help locating police after my wallet was pick-pocketed!

We had a couple of issues with the apartment which might be useful for others to know. As others have mentioned it is on a busy road so leaving windows open at night is not an option & the second bedroom has no aircon so got quite hot. The master bedroom has no door and is open to the entry way which means you can hear people coming and going at different times or using the kitchen. The second bedroom has 2 single beds which are probably 'normal' size but were too small for our young adult sons (both around 6'3 so clearly not an issue for everyone) so one slept on the couch which was very comfortable. And finally the layout of the bathrooms doesn't allow for very much privacy. The wall separating the 2 rooms is only a 3/4 wall so while you can't see what's happening in the other bathroom you can certainly hear everything that's going on! Depending on who you're traveling with this may or may not be an issue for you.

I don't want to sound negative about the apartment as we really enjoyed our stay in a great space in a wonderful location.

Second visit -- this time with family -- still excellent!

  • 5 of 5

After a brief 2014 long weekend stay, I brought my family back for a 5 night visit in June 2015. Judit was an incredible host...very helpful again. It is hard to overstate the convenience of the location and the proximity to a key crossing point on the metro line. The kids had a wonderful time enjoying the neighborhood and using this great property to explore a fabulous city. And this time we actually made use of the well-kitted kitchen to enjoy a quieter Saturday night meal at home and breakfasts in the comfort of the apartment. We are already looking forward to our return!

Terrific apartment!

  • 5 of 5

Four of us stayed here for a week in May. It was very easy communicating with Judith; she was very responsive. She arranged for cabs to pick us up and drop us off at the apartment. She also had many restaurant recommendations. The apartment is on a very busy street but, with the air conditioning on, noise was not an issue. While the lighting in the living room was dim, we did not find it to be so terrible -- and we are used to very bright lights. There are several flights of stairs to climb to the apartment and there is no elevator so this is not suitable for those unable to walk up. Since the shower in the master bathroom did not have a glass partition or curtain, lots of water ended up on the floor; we decided to shower in the second bathroom to prevent this. Also, we ran out to buy shampoo and soap for the bathrooms. However, these negatives did not detract from our overwhelmingly positive experience in the apartment. It is in a terrific location for sightseeing, walking, the Gothic Quarter, Barceloneta, etc. We would definitely stay here again.

Owner's Response: Dear Sheri and family, Thanks for your nice review. Just for to clarify, since the apartment has two bathrooms, the master bathroom is designed for relax and to make a bath rather than a shower, but you also can be. The other bathroom more functional for the shower. We believe that much of the attractive of the apartment is the modern design and we think is important for our guests and for us. As for the shampoo and soap, I apologize if I did not realize that there was little, not usual. I really appreciate your comments, always to improve! Hoping we'll see you again in Barcelona. My best wishes.
