Myself and 7 friends stayed in this gorgeous apartment for 3 nights. The photos and the description on the Airbnb website are very accurate and we had such a fun weekend. We were able to walk to everywhere we wanted and if we went further afield we were able to jump on the metro which was really easy. Horacio sent us a very detailed email prior to our visit with suggestions about where to visit and his favourite places - this was really useful.
We all loved Barcelona and were able to see some of the key sites on a bike tour which was great, we also ate lots of tapas, drank lots of Cava and Sangria, went to the beach, went to La Rambla food markets and went out dancing in the evenings.
I would highly recommend this apartment to a group of friends visiting Barcelona.
Horacio was an excellent host. He was very welcoming. He also provided us with lots of useful information about the neighborhood. The appartment was even nicer than it looked in the pictures. Very spacious and comfortable. Great central location. We walked to many great restaurants and tourist sights. I would highly recommend and would definitely stay again. Thank you Horatio!
Ernesto is the perfect host: honest, available and polite.
The apartment has a great location, 5 minutes walk from Placa Catalunia. It is big, clean and charming. Ernesto allowed us a late checkout.
I would recommend this place in BCN!
Just returned from a week in Barcelona. Horacio was a delight to work with and very prompt in answering all our questions. This was my first reservation on airbnb and I am very happy about the results!The apartment was beautiful and the location cannot be beat. We easily walked all over Barcelona and the metro is right down the street. Each room has its own balcony and was comfortable. The pictures are exactly what you will see upon arrival. This apartment easily accommodates three couples or large families.
I would recommend the pizza place across the street and down a little bit, Georgio's! We ate there twice. The pizza is fabulous!
Horacio is a pleasure to deal with. He was extremely helpful during the booking process and in the run-up to our visit he kindly supplied a raft of information on places to go, where to eat and what to do. The apartment is in a super location and was a perfect set up for our group of 6. The street is fairly noisy in the mornings but with a location that good you can't complain. Our flight was badly delayed on the way to Barcelona and we didn't arrive at the apartment until 2am but we were still met at the apartment, which was great. I would highly recommend staying here and would do again. Thank you Horacio!
We stayed 3 nights in this great apartment and then transferred to a smaller apartment in the same building due to a mix up with the booking (we were double booked). I only mention this as I think the situation was handled very well and did not impact our stay.
The apartment is in the ideal location. A 5 min walk to La Rambla. A 7 min walk to cathedral and you're surrounded by great restaurants , a metro station around the corner and even a supermarket just opposite the apartment.
Horacio and his team helped to make this a wonderful trip. Thank you!
it has been a real pleasure to host you and your friends and thank you so much for your understanding with the double booking for the last day and for accepting our offer to stay for free the last night.
We look forward to meeting you back, you are always welcome!!!
