  • The location, view, brightness and size were four features of this apartment that we loved during our recent stay in Barcelona. Overlooking the Placa Real and the rooftops of the city, you step out of your door into the action. Had the weather been better, it would have been wonderful to spend time on the terraces. You can wander the old city for hours or and browse the shops and stalls to your heart's content. The metro and many excellent restaurants are nearby. It's an easy walk to the market for wonderful fresh food if you'd like to cook at home. The apartment was generally clean (but a little rough around the edges e.g., white slipcovers dirty at the bottom, some loose tiles, broken lock on the terrace door). The beds and linens were comfortable. Another plus is the elevator, especially for transporting luggage to the fifth floor. Be prepared for a rather dark and gloomy entry to the building itself, noise and light from the street, a rather eclectic and cluttered manner of furnishing, an uncontained shower right by the toilet that floods the bathroom floor, and the need to bring your own tissues, bar soap and shampoo. Fabienne and Nadia (her greeter) were friendly and accommodating. Overall, the apartment was a great place to launch from and return home to, but somewhat overpriced given some of the features mentioned.

  • Very nice location in the heart of Barcelona. The appartment is very nice as well. Nicely decorated and in perfect shape.
    The one improvement would be to have double glass. It is quite noisy early in the morning. We were here in december, and there was a big storm. There was quite a draught inside.
    But there were enough heaters so we had lots of fun.

  • Charming apartment, and an extraordinary view from the amazing terraces. My wife and I, and our three kids, stayed there for two days, and it was great.

  • Beautiful place! Perfect location! Perfect stay! Fabienne has excellent taste in furniture and finishes. I had never actually seen a "shoilet" before. There is a toilet in the shower! Charming! We really enjoyed the sunsets from the top deck with amazing Spanish cheese, charcuterie, and wine. The flat was clean and exactly as represented in the photos.

  • Absolutely loved staying in Fabienne's flat, there cant be a better place to watch the world go by and my partner Michelle even accepted my marriage proposal.

  • The apartment is in a fantastic location with wonderful views across Plaza Real and the Barcelona skyline. The balcony and terrace are absolutely wonderful. The apartment itself is very bohemian which we liked but it could do with some work here and there to make it more comfortable. Unfortunately, the downside of the central location is that it can be noisy at night from the crowd in the plaza below. This is downtown Barcelona after all so if you are not a sound sleeper we suggest you bring some ear plugs!

  • The flat is beautifully decorated and the open plan style made it feel huge. The two terraces have incredible views and are great for sunbathing, meaning we only went to the beach once a holiday!

    A very romantic place right in the centre of the city easy walking distance to bars and restaurants.

    Nadiya was very helpful welcoming us and having Wifi made it easy to plan our eating and sightseeing plans.

    Would come again!

  • We enjoyed our stay so much! The decor was as represented and lovely plus romantic. It is a perfect location on the plaza with fabulous restaurants. We will stay here again for sure!

  • 500 words is not enough to express how exceptional this apartment is and how thoughtful and communicative our host, Fabienne, was to us.
    A perfect location on the rooftop of the Placa Reial with an exquisitely chic decor. If Fabienne isn't already a well acclaimed decorator, she certainly should be. She has created an atmosphere of luxury, charm and relaxation blending both the tranquility of a seaside local with the vibrancy of a city square full of energy. It's unique and makes one's stay in Barcelona one that fully envelopes the spirit of its location.

    For the record, all the the amenities - plenty of hot water, wi-fi, elevator, comfortable bed, etc - are all there. However, I didn't give them much thought, as it should be, because I was too mesmerized watching the sunset over the vast city view from the upper terrace followed by people watching in the active square below full of restaurants, street performers and...well... people, lots of them.
    Here is my only warning. If you will be unhappy with the din that results from the many people in the square below or can't possibly sleep unless it is very quiet, you may not be able to appreciate this extraordinary apartment and that would be a shame. I'm in my 50s and I prefer quiet when I sleep. I imagined that the hum might interfere with my ability to sleep. Instead, the apartment made me so happy and full of creative energy that I felt like I was 20 again and, like in my 20s, opened myself up to embrace it all. Somehow I slept like a contented baby.

    I can't wait to return. Thank you Fabienne!

About
Soy decoradora. He viajado mucho y entiendo muy bien las necesidades de los viajantes a los que les gusta disfrutar comodamente de un lugar exclusivo. Vivo en Cadaqués la mayoria de los meses del año, aquí he tenido la oportunidad de conocer a muchos artistas y personalidades, entre ellos al gran Salvador Dalí. Este apartamento ha sido cobijo de numerosas personalidades y testigo de las fiestas más exóticas. He tenido la suerte de conocer lugares increibles en todo el mundo. He vivido en Australia, en algunos países del norte de África y África subsahariana, e Ibiza. El estilo del apartamento es más bien mediterranio, con un toque barroco. Este lugar es una ventana al mundo: estáis todos bienvenidos
