About the property

Lovely one bedroom apartment very well located, ideal for couples or family.

One bedroom apartment from 2-4 people, consists of one bedroom with 1 double bed or 2 single beds and a double sofe bed in the living room. Fully equipped kitchen, one bathroom with towels and beds linen included. Parking in the same building, so you can park your car if you need it.

I own more apartments in the same building.

Walking distance to city center Plaza Cataluña, believe me you will walk everywhere. Its right in Eixample area, plenty of restaurants, supermarkets. Born district is just 10 minutes walking, you will adore the location. Also the beach is 10 minutes by foot.

Beautiful condo, great location, a few details would make it perfect.

  • 4 of 5

We loved the condo. It was clean, spacious, bed and sofa bed were comfortable, and felt very safe. The unit has a lot of light. The terrace opens to a central patio shared by many buildings.

It is a condo where there are many rental units, and they have a well-oiled system. We knew we would arrive after the front desk was closed, and called the office number we were given, where someone was ready to give us clear instructions to access the apartment.

The person in the front desk was very friendly and helpful. The neighborhood is very nice and feels very safe.

The building is about a 3 minute walk from the Arc de Triomf train/subway station, and about equidistant from Las Ramblas and Sagrada Familia. It is about a 20 minute walk to las Ramblas, and about 15 minutes to Sagrada Familia, and about 15 minute walk to the Picasso museum and the Gothic district. If you prefer not to walk, there are plenty of taxis within a 3 minute walk (they are pretty inexpensive), or you can also take the subway or train almost anywhere (we went to a beautiful beach out of Barcelona, a 30 minute train ride from Arc de Triomf, for about 2 euros/person each way).

There are just a couple details that would make this condo perfect:

1) Hooks in the bathroom. There was nowhere to hang the towels after taking a shower. We had to hang them in closets and over chairs. We didn't spend much time in the apartment, but it was a hassle when we wanted to sit at the table and have the towels dry out. It seems they are still working on details, so hopefully these will be installed soon.

2) Washer/Dryer. This unit in particular didn't have one. There is a washer/drying area shared by the building. The problem is that there is only one washer and one dryer, and they can't be used simultaneously. If you have more than one load of laundry (easy to do with 4 people), you have to wash and dry the first load before starting the second one. If there is another person wanting to do laundry at the same time, this is even worse. It would be awesome if there were 2 washers/dryers, or at the very least, if they upgraded the electricity system so both (washer & dryer) could be used at the same time.

3) Option to get towels more frequently. After 5 days our towels were getting somewhat gross. This was compounded by not having hooks and not having a good option to wash them.

All of the problems seem very solvable.

I would highly recommend this unit to anyone visiting Barcelona.

Clean, basic but nothing to rave about!

  • 3 of 5

This was my first time booking accommodations with Home Away in Europe. I booked late and had hoped this location would be more convenient to Barri Gotic and Las Ramblas than it was. It could certainly be walked or metro, but was too far for me and my husband in the heat of the summer months. Also, the distance meant when we went out for the day, we stayed out until late. No back and forth to the apartment during the day for a few minutes rest.

The apartment was basic, offering much less than other Home Away properties I had used in US and Canada. There was no soap to use in the bathtub. The only bathroom soap was in a dispenser next to the sink. While I didn't plan on cooking in the apartment, it would have been nice to have a coffee pot or way to heat water for tea. I was surprised to see a small washing machine, and could have done laundry if I wanted to purchase detergent. There was good wi-fi and TV. View out the window was of the back of apartment buildings, laundry hanging over balconies, and stairwells.

The bright spot in our stay was the lovely, friendly receptionist, Maria. She helped us book taxis and showed us highlights of the city on a map

Pas mal

  • 4 of 5

L'appartement que nous avions n'était pas exactement le même que sur les photos.

L'agence loue en effet tout l'immeuble et donc il s'agit surement des photos d'un appart témoin.

Notre logement était plus usé que ce que montre les photos ( parquet très abimé) mais il était néanmoins agréable.

Il manquait peut être un peu de grands ustensiles de cuisine pour 4 personnes.

La chambre était très bien : bonne literie.

Salle de bain : ok

Cuisine : ok

Par contre le canapé dans le salon grinçait pas mal et le matelas était moyen... Pour un enfant, ça va mais pour un couple c'est pas terrible.

Par ailleurs, l'accueil à la réception était très agréable même si la personne ne parlait pas français : on s'est débrouillé en anglais !

La caution a été remboursé immédiatement après le séjour.

Pour finir, l'appartement est très bien situé : beaucoup de commerces à proximité, la gare routière avec un parking où nous avions laissé la voiture est à 2 minutes. Et le métro est à l'Arc de Triomphe.

Bon accueil, hôtesse arrangeante et très disponible.

  • 4 of 5

Les photos du site montrent un appartement avec une décoration très cosy... mais pas vraiment le cas. En tout cas, bonne literie, calme et près du quartier du Born très agréable. Bonne expérience à renouveler.

sans âme mais fonctionnel, rien de trop et bien situé

  • 2 of 5

appartement cher pour la prestation offerte.

un parking est annoncé, mais quand on reçoit la confirmation de réservation, il faut payer en plus pour chaque nuit.

les photos sur le site ne correspondent pas tout à fait, il n'y a pas de décoration du tout, c'est même encore plus froid qu'un hôtel.

quand nous sommes arrivés, il n'y avait personne à l’accueil et nous avons dû appeler alors que nous avions prévenu de notre heure d'arrivée (dans les heures d'ouverture de l'accueil).

l'appartement est bien situé, mais c'est tout !
