The location is perfect(beach, barcelonetta, pedestrien,...). The appartment is very well equiped. The neighbours are making a fabulous pizza. it is small and fine, even a bit dark. In the nighttime it was silent. Even i can imagine that in summertime , it is loud. It was perfect with our children, they played soccer in front of the door ;-) A new holder for the shower head and a new showercurtain would make the stay more comfortable. For one week and 2 persons it is very pleasant. We may come again.....
Pros: (what's good)
-landlords were very communicative and easy
-Central beach location (nice for summer not really a great area if your not there for beach)
-good security (strong bars on widows and doors)
Cons (what's not so good)
-Not as big or nice as it looks from pictures, it's clearly not lived in at all really just like a bare hotel room ...didnt want to spend time there .. But was fine since we were out all day .
-furnished with the Bare minimum bathroom only had hand soap and toilet paper rest of apt was just really bare
- has a mold problem - smells badly of mold / mildew (we had headaches after spending a few Hours there )
don't stay here if you have allergies
-there were two cockroaches when we arrived in the apt one alive running around and one dying the tenants should have done a look through to remove these before we arrived (cockroaches probably Because its on street level) but the apt otherwise was nicely clean
-it's on the ground floor right next to Vespa parking area , it's extremely loud at all hours and when the neighbors above the apt walk around its extremely noisy
don't stay here if you are bothered by noise
- when we arrived we parked out car temporarily around the corner to unload luggage , the nice lady who let us know said she thought it would be fine there for a short
Time BUT IT WAS TOWED WITHIN 5 MINUTES!
Cost us €200 euro and took an hour to get it back
dont stay here if you want street parking ( you can pay for private parking around 20-40€ a day but not anywhere close to apt
nice flat close to the beach. Clean and complete even if a bit small for a family of 4 persons!!!
The magnificent landscape and sunrises have completed the picture.
we recommand this apartement and its owners Ksenia and Drasko!!
The apartment is super cute and in an ideal location. However, since it's on the ground level it can be rather noisy throughout the night. Street cleaning woke us up constantly around 2 am, and even with the windows closed, you could be awakened by neighbors or others walking the street. Also, there is a bit of a mildew/mold issue going on, and we were rather sick (stuffed up, sinusy, and headaches) while at the apartment. We'd wake up feeling crumby. It would eventually wear off while we were outside the apartment, exploring the city, but would resume when we returned.
Again though, you can't beat the location for the price. The beach is within half a block from the apartment and there are great restaurants/shops right around the corner. Ksenia was great and helpful, and all-in-all we truly enjoyed our stay.
If you don't have reactions to mold/mildew like we do and can handle a bit of street noise, I'd definitely recommend the place.
Hi Julia, thank you for your feedback, sorry about the noise, too much fiesta in BCN. About the mold - it was the painting I guess. We painted the apartment a few days before you arrive, and possible you were sensitive to this. You should tell us this and we would switch the apartment. Hope you had a good time in BCN anyway =)
The one thing that I can say about this place is LOCATION. It's just in 15 seconds of walk from the beach. Perfect to have a beach life vacation or weekend. The place itself a bit old, but stylish. It has a separate entrance which add charm of living in 'old style Barcelona". Hosts are very friendly and nice.
Very good apartment to those who want to enjoy the beach and the sea. Excellent located in a few steps to the sea. Ksenia and Drasko were waited us in the office in time, then gave all instructions about apartment and places that we can visit. We didn't use a lot of a public transport because main tourist places are near. Only good recommendations but important to say about bathroom. Bathroom is really tiny! and for people with extra kilograms would be difficult to take a shower, it's only for thin people... Thanks Bcn and thanks for Ksenia and Drasko.
GREAT LOCATION! the whole point of our trip is to relax by the beach at eat as much tapas as we can and the location is perfect for both! Definitely going to stay there again.
The little apartment is really well located, so we were able to reach everything easily. Drasko was very helpful and nice. The apartment has everything we needed and it was perfect for us 4 girls to stay in this flat. We had an awesome time in Barcelona!
molt bonic apartament, molt molt a prop del mar i hi ha carrers per creuar. cartier molt tranquil · la i silenciosa nit. a prop de tot, un bon restaurant i un supermercat a 20 metres perfecte
Logement propre et fonctionnel, néanmoins ,il manque un peu de luminosité. Quartier calme et proche de la plage (moins de 100M). Il faut se limiter à 2 personnes afin d'éviter de se retrouver à l'(website hidden)ès bonne pizzeria juste à côté de l'appart.
