  • We stayed in Gerard's apartment in the Poble Sec region in July. Gerard (email hidden) and his apartment was perfect- very clean and well fitted. With Barcelona in July the aircon was a god-send and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend. Also, I'd say this region is perfect for first time Barcelona tourists, many very cool and not touristy bars/hangout places within 5mins walk but also within 15mins walk of the base of Las Ramblas- best of both worlds.

  • The apartment was perfect for a holiday stay and had all that we needed and more!
    Location was perfect for sight seeing and metro, about 40 mins walk from beach with plenty of supermarkets and other shops and bars/restaurants on the way.
    Communication with Gerard even though we never met him was good, Taras checked us in and explained all we needed to know about the apartment and he was helpful throughout our stay. Broadband is very good we could pick it up from outside the building.
    The apartment can be noisy at times from the street and neighbor,but we would still recommend it if you don't mind that!
    Thanks.

    Response from HELMUT And GERARD:

    Ornella thanks so much for all your pacience... We advice our guests about the people above and some really dont mind. I lived there myself and they drove me mad as I am a lot at home.
    Now in summer with the sudden heat some of those cockroaches show up, its hard to avoid but we will fumigate the place as soon as we can.... As Taras did your check in he didnt know about the bottles for the AC, I always show them.... Come back to some other of our flats next time... You (email hidden).

  • This apartment was incredible. Was located in a quiet residential neighborhood, but just a short walk to the busier part of the city. The pictures accurately reflect the quality and care put into designing the apartment. I would definitely recommend a stay here. Gerard was an incredible host from showing us around the apartment and even giving us some excellent recommendations for local food and sites to visit.

  • This apartment was fantastic. Very fresh and clean, the perfect amount of amenities and great access to a lot of sights, bars, restaurants and public transport. Gerard was lovely and very helpful. Would definitely recommend to anyone staying in Barcelona.

  • This stay - and apartment - did not disappoint at all. Easy to find, really well placed (10 min walk to La Ramblas but to be honest it's in a really good little area for local, decent, good value bars and eats) and just as described. Nice old building in a pleasant street, very clean, all facilities in the kitchen, good shower, and the wifi was very quick and reliable. Able to leave bags upon arriving early and also lucky enough to be allowed to stay a bit longer on departure day as flying later on. The guys were available by text at any time although there were no problems to bother them with! All in all, highly recommended!

  • Helmut was a rapid responder to my communications while booking the Center Plaza apartment. He answered all questions and helped make changes to the dates and number in our group. He also arranged that we be picked up at the airport by Andreas at a reasonable rate and bearing a sign with my name on it.

    Check in went well with Taras explaining each appliance. Later we found that we could only access TV stations in German but there was a plethora of channels available.

    The coffee pot was very modern but required "K-cups" which we did not find in the local stores, so we made camp coffee over the stove.

    The room with the bunk beds is quite small and windowless so we left our suitcases in the living room.

    Being centrally located in Barcelona means that there is quite a bit of street noise all night long which we remedied by closing the balcony doors.

    I agree with all the positives already written in other reviews: clean, modern, close to metro, grocery stores, cafes and bars.

    We would stay here again.

  • That was definitely a GREAT apartment in the heart of Barcelona's touristic- and night- life! Gerard's apartment is very close to La Rambla and just 200 m away from the Paral.lel metro station, which gives you instant access to places like Pl Catalunya y Pl Espanya; Gerard was online 24/7 to answer my questions and didn't complain about my late check-in; he explained every little details about the apartment and offered his help for pretty much any issues/questions we had; as a note to those looking-forward to spending 24 hours in Internet instead of staring at Gaudi's masterpieces of art in beautiful Barcelona: the Internet speed in the apartment, as well as in the city in general, is pretty low, so don't count on spending countless hours working in remote-desktop mode to your office; still, if you're there to explore Barcelona's busy life and check your email from time to time, this is the perfect place; the apartment is very well equipped: Gerard made the great decision to put first-class (German) furniture and equipment instead of low-cost devices; dish-washer, washer/dryer, audio devices, TV set and even beds are all produced by best-in-class brands, so your stay is an enjoyable one; I was surprised to find out Gerard is able to communicate in 3+ west European languages, he offered SMS support during my transfer and was available in other text applications for additional support; Thank you Gerard for the great experience - next time I visit Barcelona, I'll definitely pick-up your place again!

  • I did not meet Gerard in person, but another one of our group met him for check in and said that he was very nice and helpful in showing how everything worked in the apartment. Before and during our stay, Gerard always responded very quickly to any queries I had, and was always very helpful, and also arranged a car to transfer 2 of our group from the airport to the apartment at very short notice (just a few hours before). The apartment was excellent, very modern and extremely clean and tidy, and everything worked well, including very fast internet. The apartment was also very well equipped with everything you need. The apartment is situated in a very good location, just 5 minutes walk to the metro, and with lots of food shops, pharmacies, restaurants and bars close by. I would highly recommend this apartment.
