The apartment is very well located in the heart of Barcelona's Gotic area. Only a few blocks away from Plaza Catalunya, metro station, Santa Catarina Markets, cool restaurants and bars.
We really enjoyed our stay, but beware of the extremely narrow stairs. We had big suitcases with us, so it was a bit of a struggle to carry them up to the third floor. Also, the neighborhood was a bit too loud. It didn't bother us too much because we were out most of the time, but it can be annoying if you want to have a good rest.
Apart from that, the apartment was very clean, comfortable and the great location made it super easy for us to get around and enjoy the city to its fullest!
Warm welcome at the exact hour, there was still some cleaning to do but we could change clothes and come back later. The appartement was very clean, good beds and clean sheets and towels!!. Ok, the appartement is not as bright as shown on the pictures, i guess some Photo-shop work has been done ;)) and the Wifi is not working, but i didn't go to Barcelona to surf on the net all day. There is enough Wifi in town if you don't survive without.....The appartement is located perfectly, at the end of the street is a little square with 2 nice restaurants!!
When we had some trouble with the door, Jaime came within the half hour to repair!!
Thank you Jaime for a very pleasant stay in wonderful Barcelona. The flat was a bit more worn and darker than the photos suggest, but nice and clean with comfortable beds and in an excellent location for sightseeing. Thanks also to Eric for a very warm welcome and staying to give us helpful recommendations for our stay - we hope you didn't miss your flight to Menorca!
We stayed at Jaime's apartment for four nights and couldn't have chosen a better location. It is located in a traditional block with loads of character and within walking distance of some great shopping, bars, restaurants and a small Consum supermarket. The apartment retains many of its original features and is perfectly comfortable as base from which to explore the city.
One of Jaime's friends (Miguel) is a taxi driver and he met us at the airport and Eric welcomed us to the apartment - all very seamless. We arranged for Miguel to return us to the airport too.
A very comfortable stay, we would certainly return.
We had a great stay at Jaime's place. We were so surprised at how quiet it was which allowed us to sleep wonderfully. The location was close to public transport and to the local sites. We also felt that we had good privacy from our kids! We'd stay there again. Many thanks
Good stuff first: Our receiving host was Eric, not Jamie. Eric was very friendly and helped us with parking. He then later spent substantial time, using a map to explain the best way to get around the city and the best places to go, even though it was late at night. This was very helpful.
As for the apartment. The location is nice - truly in the centre and easy to navigate around the beautiful city of Barcelona. The neighbourhood also seemed pleasant. The apartment has a nice balcony overlooking the local street. HOWEVER:
1) The stairs leading to it are VERY narrow. It was very difficult to drag our big, heavy luggage up 3 floors. I understand that this is an old house in Barcelona, yet we would have been more prepared for the ridiculously tiny stairs had we been warned of this beforehand.
2) There is WiFi, but the connection is TERRIBLE. Barely connects to the first bar and there is no router to be found inside the flat. This was highly inconvenient and mildly irritating.
3) There was no soap in the bathroom!! This meant we had to use the kitchen's washing liquid to wash our hands. Not pleasant.
4) There is no washing machine.
5) There is no clothes iron (unless we failed to find it)
6) The apartment has 3 bedrooms but the third room is a very small box-room with enough space for just a small bed.
Une superbe découverte de Barcelone en partie grâce à la situation privilégiée de l'appartement en plein cœur de la ville... tout près du Palau de la Musica, de l'Arc de Triomphe, du Musée Picasso, etc...
Jaime avait organisé un taxi à l'aéroport pour notre arrivée, bien pratique lorsqu'on ne connaît pas la ville... L'accueil a été agréable et la personne qui nous a accueilli a pris le temps de nous expliquer les bons plans de Barcelone dans les détails... Nous étions 2 adultes et 2 enfants et l'appartement était parfait! Nous y retournerons et recommandons cet appartement! Bref, un super séjour!!! Merci Jaime!
