Light-filled, Spacious, Comfortable, Wonderful Location
I had an absolutely wonderful five week stay in this beautiful "Sobre Atico" apartment in the Sant Gervasi neighborhood of Barcelona! The apartment is full of light, thoughtfully laid out, and spotless. The owner, Cristina, is kind, friendly and always helpful and available. The apartment is at the top of the building, so it is quite quiet. There are two terraces--front and back--where you can have your coffee or a candle-lit meal. The layout of the apartment is great for two people or two people and a child, with spaces to socialize or be alone. The kitchen is beautifully designed and has everything you need. This apartment is simply a lovely and comfortable place to come back to after a day of sight-seeing. I also loved the neighborhood of Sant Gervasi. It is quieter and more residential than other parts of Barcelona, yet extremely convenient to metro and bus lines that take you everywhere around the city. In addition, everything you need is literally right out your door--from a bakery to a well-stocked grocery store to a "dollar store" to clothing and shoe stores...and of course, restaurants and tapas bars! There is also a lovely "placa" where you can have "a coffee" and people watch. Sant Gervasi also has two must-see tourist spots: the funicular to the top of Tibidabo (amusement park, gorgeous church, amazing views) and the Gaudi-designed Torres Bellesguard. There is even the top-rated and delicious (we ate there our last night) "Restaurant La Bonanova" two doors down. I highly recommend this apartment, the location, and our host, Cristina!
My apartment with Cristina was wonderful!
I so enjoyed my apartment with Cristina. It was comfortable, nicely located and furnished with everything I needed. Cristina could not have been more helpful with directions, information and all I could ask for. It was a true delight and I WILL be back!
Thank you very much!!!
New Neighborhood - Nice Apartment
We stayed in Barcelona off and on for about 3 months and wanted a home base. One requirement was outdoor space and this apartment has that covered! The home is in San Gervasi, a new neighborhood for us and one we will return to. It's quieter and more "neighborhood" than other places we've been. There is a supermarket literally across the street; fresh fish store next door; fresh meat market across the street; several cafes in the Plaza Bonanova; variety of other stores and amenities nearby; metro 5-10 minute walk; movie theatre 5 minute walk; and several majors streets within walking distance with a wide variety of really excellent choices in food and drink.
The patio is very nice and we left a grill from our stay. Since we were there so long, we cooked a lot and hadn't realized there isn't an oven, so having the grill was a big help. The lounges are very comfortable and there is a large umbrella that we were able to move to protect from some of the intense afternoon sun. We would have liked to have had more comfortable chairs for seating on both the patio and the balcony.
Our host, Cristina, was always very prompt in responding to requests for information or to take care of anything we needed. Could not have been more pleased with our interactions with her (and her husband).
In looking at pictures on-line, I did not realize that there is a spiral staircase leading from entry landing to apartment. Not difficult to navigate, except with heavy suitcases! If anyone has a mobility problem, they should be aware of this.
We really enjoyed our stay in this apartment and easily recommend it to anyone looking for a place with outdoor space in a nice area.
My husband and I loved our stay in this fantastic apartment. It is wonderfully located in an upscale family neighborhood away from the throngs of tourists and it was fun to be immersed amongst the locals. There is a supermarket literally across the street (although I highly recommend walking the 4 blocks to the market noted below). There is a bakery with coffee two doors down outside your front door (although we liked El Frente across the plaza) and there is a whole street lined with amazing restaurants about 4 blocks away - we loved Chico Bar and a restaurant I think was called outside in or something like that directly across from Chico Bar.
There is an amazing mini la boqueria market (think several vendors of their own with meats, cheeses, produce, bread, etc. all in one market along with a typical grocery store - such a great place to buy food to cook for yourself at a much more affordable price that the touristy la boqueria) which is about 3 blocks away right next to the El Puxtet metro stop on the L7 which you can catch to take you everywhere. I've copied in a printable map below which is useful. Tip - get one of the barcelona 1, 2, 3 or 4 day passes and then you can ride the multiple lines everywhere you want to go. Another tip, map the stops and transitions out in advance as it will help you a lot when you're riding the metro.
The apartment itself was great! Well appointed, clean, and with everything we needed. We loved the two decks with one always being cool when the other was warm. We loved having dinner by candle light on the back deck in the evenings! Cristina and her husband were great to work with and very helpful with anything you needed. She was even kind enough to arrange for a taxi to pick us up right outside our front door on the day we left.
The bed was comfortable, the kitchen had everything we needed for cooking which we did often, we were thankful for the washing machine which we used since we packed with carry ons only. The apartment had absoultely everything we needed and we wouldn't hesitate to rent it again - especially at the super affordable rate. We've already recommended it to several friends who are planning to go to Barcelona so book it while you can!
How many wonderful tips and words, it´s just so useful for nexts guests!!!
