Great location near the train station easy to get to from the Airport.
Very well located. Clean top floor with terrasse nice to eat outside. No elevator so hard to get the luggages up six storys by the stairs. Nice restaurants all around. Tapas y Birras dans le quartier Sants Mont Juic a must try.
This apartment was great. My husband and I stayed for a few nights this spring and would highly recommend it for a chill couple looking for a relaxing place to stay. Very close to the metro, cool neighborhood with a square full of restaurants and outside patio seating, and the best part... the terrace. We met Laura when we arrived, who was friendly and helpful, and also very responsive even after our stay.
A puzzling and difficult start with the owner but once that was straightened out the apt was fine.
The owner of the apartment gave us the wrong address, several miles from the actual apartment. After waiting two hours for him to show up, we called VRBO. They gave us his telephone number, but whoever answered didn't speak English and hung up. I checked my cell phone and found a message from the owner giving a different address. We took a cab to that address where his niece was waiting for us. She was apologetic, and helpful. Unlike the owner, she spoke English. She helped carry a suitcase up the five story (60 step) walk-up to the apartment, showed us the apartment and helped orient us to the new neighborhood.
The apartment was functional. We appreciated the washing machine. The view of the neighborhood from the balcony was charming -- narrow streets and pleasant, old apartment buildings.
Clarification about your comment:
Comments travellers do about our apartments are really important to us but they must be loyal to the truth and they should not be used for other purpose than to guide future travellers what they will find.
It is not entirely true when said that the wrong direction was given.
A first email was send with the wrong direction, then a second email was send with the correct address and Laura's phone number in case the location couldn't be found or if some sort of help was needed at the arrival, this second email was not taken into account nor Laura's contact information, causing problems for both, you and Laura that was waiting since the time agreed.
The apartment is in a building of late nineteenth century, fully rehabilitated and without a lift as specified in the notice, but it isn't on a fifth floor.
Apologies were made for my clumsiness, but you haven't recognized yours, not reading the ad nor all the emails send.
We are all human and can make mistakes but above all we must be correct and not say half truths.
Thank you for your trust and we're sorry your assessment isn't better for what happened.
Best Regards Laura and Jaume
Charming flat on a quiet street, near to the metro
Jaume was very prompt to respond when we had any queries about booking and how to get to the apartment. Anna- who met us at the property when we arrived was very helpful and recommended some restaurants in the neighborhood for us to try. She also told us about the St Jordi celebrations that would be happening during our stay. The check-in and check-out process was very quick and efficient.
The apartment itself was really lovely and very good value in comparison with some of the others we had enquired about. It was exactly as it looks in the pictures. We particularly liked the gorgeous floor tiles and the beam-effect ceiling. The bathroom and kitchen seemed brand new and they had provided everything necessary in terms of utensils and kitchenware. (Though with so many restaurants to try, we didn't cook at home very much!) The bed was very spacious and comfortable. We didn't have cause to use the air conditioning during our stay as it was cool enough with the windows open. The balcony was our favourite feature of the flat. It's huge and extends around both external walls of the apartment. We loved the outside dining area and spent a few evenings out there with a bottle of wine.
The only negative aspect of the entire stay, was that despite it being a pedestrian street with no traffic, we were on occasion woken by the refuse collection lorries, the roadworks in a neighbouring street and another unidentified banging noise quite early in the morning on several occasions. However, perhaps the noise wouldn't have been so intrusive if we'd made use of the air conditioning instead and had the windows shut. Unfortunately, my partner is a stickler for having fresh air at night.
The location was also ideal because it was just a 5/10 minute walk from the nearest Metro station and from there you could make your way easily to the centre of town. There are also buses that depart from Carrer de Sants. Putxinelli's- the Italian restaurant on Carrer de Salou does fantastic, authentic pizzas and there are half a dozen restaurants and bars on Placa d'Osca. (In particular we loved La Mestressa. It had a great atmosphere, cool decor, delicious food, friendly service and nice house vermouth!) We'd also recommend Carrer de Blai for slightly less touristy tapas bars and montaditos for only 1 euro. Head to the very pretty Plaza Reial too for a lively atmosphere, cocktails, dining and people-watching.
One final tip: book tickets for the Gaudi attractions online in advance!!
Gracias por su sinceridad en el comentario y la descripción precisa del apartamento y el entorno.
Nos esforzamos al máximo en tener siempre nuestras instalaciones en las mejores condiciones y en que nuestros viajeros estén muy cómodos.
Le esperamos en otra ocasión saludos Jaume y Anna
Nice apartment close to Metro
We found the apartment very nice and cosy. Its very close to the Metro Station, so its very easy to go to the centrum of Barcelona.
The apartment we had was on the top floor, so its was very warm all day long because of the sun, and the air-condition in the bedroom didn't work, so it was very warm and hard to sleep at night.
The owner tried to fix the air-condition, but it couldn't be fixed during our stay, so we kinda hoped for a little compensation, but we did not get this, sadly.
Otherwise the owner provided good customer service.
The terrace was very nice and the bathroom also. Quiet surroundings.
We would recommend this apartment for renting, but perhaps in the floors below, because of the heat from the sun and because its the top floor apartment. But if the air-condition works fine, it is a very nice apartment and with all the things you need for cooking and so on.
Logement au calme et conforme aux photos
Logement très bien situé dans un quartier calme avec une petite place sympathique animée le soir.
Proximité du métro, train, bus et la jolie place d'Espagne (10 min à pieds)
Pas de problème pour nous mais le logement est au 3e étage sans ascenseur.
Petite terrasse bien sympathique d autant que les voisins ne sont jamais dehors
