I share the same passion, traveling!!, And so I offer the same thing I look for when I am out: a central location and comfortable place to rest, just like home!
This is an extremely comfortable apartment with elevator, newly refurbished and very welcoming. It has 3 double rooms (one of them with en suite bathroom) and the other two with 1 single bed each (but are both convertible into double beds). There's also another large, fully equipped bathroom. Large and bright living and dining area, with a large chaise longue sofa.
Fully equipped kitchen with cooking utensils, pots, pans. Modern appliances such as oven, dishwasher, microwave oven, electric kettle, washing machine, iron, ironing board and hairdryer. Linen and towels, shower gel, shampoo and soap is provided.
The apartment is located in the central Eixample district, just 15 minutes walk from Plaza Catalunya / Las Ramblas, 10 minutes walk from Plaza Espanya, and it's well connected to the subway (Rocafort, L1) 3 blocks away and bus services, although many of the points of interest can be made simply on foot.
Coming from El Prat airport, the Aerobus (airport shuttle) stops just 7 blocks from the apartment. If you arrive by train from Sants Station it's only 7 blocks away.
The area is safe, clean, and very close to several places of interest. There are plenty of restaurants, bars, supermarkets, and the "Las Arenas" shopping center is only a few blocks away.
Car rental right below the apartment. You can rent a bike for 5 euros a day just five minutes away.
If you have any doubts, please contact me, I will be very happy to answer all your questions.
See you soon!

The Eixample area is a great area and this apartment was conveniently located in it. The apartment is really great - the bed in the master suite was really comfortable. Even though there were just the two of us, we liked having 2 bathrooms to save time on getting ready. The apartment is super spacious and conveniently stocked with kitchen amenities.
Thank you again, Sergio!
We were a party of four, two of whom were of slightly more mature years. The Arago apartment, which is well equipped, suited out needs very well. There is an oven and induction hob, fridge and freezer, dishwasher, washing machine, microwave and best of all a Nespresso machine. There is a fast wifi connection to the Internet and an electronic door lock. There is no TV but we preferred that. There are two high quality bathrooms, one of which is ensuite to the main bedroom. Everything is well-maintained and clean. The apartment is on the fourth floor of a classic Barcelona apartment house. The public spaces are clean and well lit. There is a lift which was very important for us as we had my parents with us. When planning the trip Sergio answered all our questions extremely promptly. On arrival we found that the kettle was not working. Being British the kettle is vital piece of equipment. We contacted Sergio and he replaced it before the end of the day. The area in which the apartment is located is a real neighbourhood and not just a tourist haunt. There are numerous small shops and restaurants, an excellent fishmonger, bakery and charcuterie. We had an excellent meal at The Crown Marine at the junction of Arago and Rocafort, which despite its name is an authentic Barcelona restaurant. The apartment is well located. It is a short walk to the Rocafort metro station and a taxi could easily be hailed right outside the front door of the building. There is a certain amount of noise from neighbouring apartments but at no time was it intrusive. We would certainly book the apartment again.
The apartment is lovely - ideal for a short trip to Barcelona and exactly as described. We didn't meet Sergio but Dana was very welcoming and helpful. We had no problems at all, beds were really comfortable and wifi was excellent. Wouldn't hesitate to go back.
We only stayed for two nights in this apartment - but it was way too short! It is a beautifully renovated apartment in a good area of Barcelona, convenient walking to Rambla and Diagonal. The beds were extremely comfortable and the two bathrooms very generous. There was also an elevator to the apartment for extra convenience.
Sergio was amazingly professional. He answered enquiries in very, very quick time and provided detailed instructions and information about the area, instructions on how to get from the airport and other handy hints - even trying to contact me when we were late arriving. He was perfect.
The apartment is in a great location, not a touristy area, but still close to lots of transportation and very easy to get to the main sights. We were there over Easter so it was hard to get a feel for how busy the neighborhood really was, but it seemed like there were some nice bars and restaurants. You can easily walk to the trendy l'Eixample area. Joan Miro park is very close, it has a nice playground for kids and is a great place to walk around and hang out in the neighborhood. There is a huge supermarket only a couple blocks away.
I did not meet Sergio, but he was very friendly and communicative before we arrived. He got a high chair for our daughter after we asked if he could. We had a couple of questions during our stay and he responded quickly.
The apartment itself looks exactly like the photos. It is very bright, clean and comfortable. There are some minor details that could be improved. The kitchen is very basic in its amenities, the tea kettle was broken when we arrived, one of the pans had been burned and not cleaned, there are no trash bins in the bathrooms, the pillows on the beds are old and need to be replaced. I would have also liked to have some written explanation of how to use things like the washing machine and dishwasher. Also, the apartment is in a very large apartment building and you can hear other tenants coming and going. For us, with a small child, it was a little loud.
Overall, we very much enjoyed our stay here and I would recommend this place to others.
Quick response rate, very accurate description of the flat.
I went to Sergio's flat for a conference in BCN and couldnt be more happy about it: perfect location and wonderful place! Very spacious and very comfortable, would def recommend it :)
The flat was beautiful, extremely spacious and light, even nicer than it looked in the photos. Beds were very comfy - one double with an ensuite, and two rooms with single beds and pull out double-beds. Although when the rooms are made into doubles, there is really no room for anything but the bed as they are quite small. I really liked the decor, the old-fashioned Spanish tiles but new bathrooms, kitchens etc.
We only informed Sergio of our check-in time the day before due to last minute planning and flight booking on our behalf, however, nobody was there to meet my sister when she arrived to check in at the time she had said, and when somebody did arrive, they had clearly never been to the flat before. In addition, although the flat looked incredibly clean on first glance, there were things like hairs in a few of the drawers, dirty pots, pans and bowls in the cupboards etc which was slightly disappointing. Other than those minor things, we were very happy in the flat and would really recommend it - especially to anyone about to run Barcelona marathon as I was!!
