Everything was lovely, location couldn't be better. Delightful...hope to return someday! We were well taken care of by hosts and the place was charming and perfect for our small family. Upstairs from best Tapas isn Barcelona!
This apartment is in a great location - close to restaurants, markets and the subway. We were able to drop off our luggage prior to check in, which was really helpful. The stairway is narrow so if you have a large suitcase it will be difficult to navigate the steps.
The apartment is in a middle class residential area, 2 blocks from one of the premier Pintxo bar streets in Barcelona. The metro is nearby, its a bit tricky to find, and once there you have to go up 4 floors on narrow cement stairs with 7 landings. If you're up to that, it's a very comfortable, bright, airy, and reasonably quiet place to stay. The coffee machine is a ridiculous Nespresso using throwaway aluminum pods, which although popular, makes lousy coffee, even with premium pods we bought at the conveniently nearby supermarket. There was only one wine glass, but everything else was good. The washer and dishwasher were appreciated and worked flawlessly. Bruno, the absentee owner, and Cristina, his manager, were very responsive and helpful. Checking in and out was a breeze.
We spent 10 days staying at this comfortable flat in Poble Sec just minutes from the Metro and 10 minutes stroll from the Ramblas. The flat is on the top floor with tiled ceilings and is clean, well equipped and very comfortable. Bruno was very helpful answering our questions before we arrived and the welcome pack was full of useful information. Air con meant no problem sleeping in the humid mid summer weather. There are loads of restaurants and tapas bars near by.
We stayed in this apartment for the Marathon weekend and so it was ideally located for the start/finish - just a 10 minute walk away as well as being well located for all the attractions that Barcelona has to offer.
The apartment was comfortable, clean, tidy and very well equipped and I would not hesitate to recommend to others or book again for a return visit.
It was excellent value for money and a much better option than staying in a hotel.
We particularly liked the local feel of the area with so many tapas bars to choose from. It was lively with a real buzz without it being loud and overbearing. Also there were plenty of supermarkets close by for food and drink if we wanted to make use of the well equipped kitchen.
Overall a fantastic weekend..Thankyou!
