  • Thanks Laura!

    The stay was great, although we didn't meet Laura we were met at 1am to be brought the keys as our flight had been delayed and were able to leave our bags in the apartment until we needed to pick them up prior to our flight on the last day.

    The apartments in a great area and we walked everywhere each day. Although it's not in the centre of town, it was really nice to be in a less touristy area which felt a little safer and gave us more reason to explore. There's a square behind the flat that has a few cafes and bars that are really great and lots of options if you don't feel like taking the 15 minute walk into town in the evenings to La Raval or Las Ramblas (would recommend Le Born - it was lovely and only a 5 minute walk away).

    In regards to the apartment itself - although the bedrooms, lounge and bathroom were well maintained, it was very creaky so you could hear a lot from the surrounding apartments and if you plan to self-cater (which we didn't) the kitchen is a little on the shabby side - though I don't doubt it's all in good working condition! It was very hard to get hot water in the shower (we tried a trick from previous reviews), but aside from this it had everything we wanted and for the price would definitely visit again!

  • The apartment was clean, quiet at night and very well located. Laura responses are quick, it was very appreciated. The kitchen can be more equipped, there's no toaster and no glasses for wine or water. On the pictures there's four towels but we only had two. There's a lot of moskitoes at night, even if we closed every door et window, our 9 months old baby had around 40 bites after 3 nights :( (email hidden) if you're with a baby. I would recommend this apartment.

    Response from Laura:

    Thanks for taking the time to review the apartment Julie. I make sure to bring those things to the apartment, there were always glasses in the kitchen, I guess they broke or were placed somewhere hidden. Its the first time someone said about the moskitoes I was there 2 weeks ago with my 10 month baby and we had no problems like that.

  • Dejlig lejlighed med perfekt (website hidden) ankom først kl. 01.30 d. 4/6 og blev lukket ind af en venlig person som dog ikke kunne ret meget engelsk, Laura har vi kun skrevet med.
    Lidt trafikstøj og myg, så godt at sove for lukket dør :-)...
    Gåafstand til mange hyggelige pladser, gader og gode Tapas steder..og stranden!

  • the flat was in a very central location, really easy to get around and about 20 minutes walk to the ramblas.
    the hosts well helpful, and communication was good.

  • Lovely apartment, easy to find. Good location close to the centre - we walked everywhere to see all the sights. Quiet neighbourhood. Well equipped kitchen. Useful selection of guide books on the bookshelf. Good wi-fi connection. Was glad I'd read Natasha's review (March 2014) about the hot water in the bathroom basin - a couple of times it wouldn't come hot, so I just turned the kitchen tap on as well for a moment and it worked a treat, the water heater sprang to life. No problems with getting hot water in the shower.

    We had a great few days. Thanks Laura

  • 地理位置很好,楼下就有一个华人餐厅,从早上8点营业到23/24点,很方便!不过楼上在装修,幸好白天我们都出去了,晚上他们收工也挺早的。还算ok的。
    Todo ha sido OK.

  • We waren zeer tevreden over het appartement en de rustige omgeving.
    Jammer dat er een misverstand was bij het inchecken waardoor we buiten wat moesten wachten. Verder verliep alles prima.
    Voor een langer verblijf is het eerder aangewezen voor 4p ipv 6p.

  • I stayed here for two nights with a friend, the location is fantastic! Initially we were a bit overwhelmed about WHERE to stay in Barcelona, but were very happy with this choice, we had a car, but never needed to use it.

    Laura was exceptionally quick at responding to my messages, we sort of booked this last minute, but was pleasantly surprised when she accepted within an hour or two of the booking request! I would certainly stay here again!
