This apartment is on a pedestrian only street; lots of restaurants very close by. Plus, the nearest subway stop is only 2 blocks away. Loved having a washer/dryer in the unit. The apartment is in great shape with all the necessary amenities. We would definitely stay there again!
This cosy apartment is accurately described on Trip Advisor and is quiet, clean, comfortable, well equipped, has a modern bathroom and kitchen and is tastefully furnished . This includes a nice desk at which to do emails ,and so on , on the very fast internet. The owners quickly responded to all our communications, and immediately addressed a minor problem with the washing machine. The manager Sergio , who is in his seventies, spoke good English and was charming and personable with a great sense of humour and vast experience with visitors. He was also punctual and helpful.
The location is hard to beat and pedestrians only Carrer de Blais , right below the balcony, is full of tapas bars and the neighbourhood is full of restaurants. It was amazingly quiet with no traffic. Underground five minutes walk. La Rambla etc 15 minutes walk
Perfect for a couple . Stairs to access but only one flight
Before arriving all communications were responded to promptly with questions answered and full details provided. This was followed up by a warm welcome of a bottle of Cava and support from Sergio upon arrival and throughout our stay.
The location of this apartment is superb with almost all main attractions well within walking distance in fact we spent most of our time outside the apartment failing to take advantage of the comfortable chairs and interesting range of dvds and books.
I lost my guidebook but of course there was one to borrow along with umbrellas and assorted thoughtful items supplied by the very considerate hosts.
I stayed at this lovely apartment for three nights during a recent trip to Barcelona. I'd what the photos looked like so when I arrived, I was really wowed by how upon entering, it really felt like a home. Tastefully and comfortably decorated, it has a great kitchen (I didn't use it much because it was my first Barcelona trip) for cooking and eating in, nice, clean, and modern bathroom, and comfortable and charmingly decorated master bedroom (where I slept) and living room area. As others have written, there are loads of DVDs to watch and guidebooks and maps to peruse.
The check-in manager, Sergio, was wonderfully helpful and kind. He gave me lots of great advice about where I really should go after I'd rattled off my list of must-sees. Based on his recommendations, I changed parts of my itinerary and was glad to have done so. He also helped me book a taxi to the airport.
Lastly, the hosts kindly left a bottle of Cava for me which I didn't drink there but plan to enjoy this weekend with friends at home. I would definitely stay here again and hope to be able to do so in the coming years.
I stayed for a business trip for a few nights and really enjoyed it. The price is superbe for what you get! The apartment is spacious for one or two. Would not stay there with more people although a second bedroom is available. Bedroom and living are airco'ed. Very helpful. A small balcony is nice for one to sit and watch the street business in the evening. It is a very lively street, but after 2300 everything is calm. Restaurants and bars are nice, Mostly frequented by locals. A super market is right across the street. Extremely convenient. The amenities are very nice. The kitchen and bathroom have everything you need. Everything is very clean and neat and Sergio was a great host and surprised me with a bottle of Cava as a welcome! Thank you for your hospitality!
