The stay at Ricard's apartment was great. He was waiting for us when we arrived via taxi from the airport, and provided us with a lot of great information about the city.
With the heatwave in Europe during our stay, the air conditioning in the bedroom was a life saver and we were actually able to get restful sleep after exploring the city. The apartment is in a very quiet area, but is only a few blocks from a lot of great neighborhoods, including Gracia. Nice central location in Barcelona.
We would recommend staying with Ricard to anyone!
Great location,very central and very quiet.Ricard was extremely welcoming and organised.Apartment spacious and very well equipped.
Ricard made us feel very welcome. He was helpful and accommodating. He provided very quick responses to any questions before our departure. The apartment was spacious, well equiped and clean. It was located in a quiet street in a lovely area with bars, restaurants and supermarkets. About 5 minutes from the metro stop it was well located. Quick and easy to get into the main part of the city.
Great restaurant almost opposite where we had a lovely meal.
Ricard was a great host and his flat is beautiful. Gracia is a great selection of a great city, we had a lovely time. Thank you again Ricard, we'd definitely come back next time we are in Gracia!
Traveling with my wife and two daughters, we had a wonderful stay in the apartment. It's well accommodated, located in a lively district of the City, and within easy walking distance of the subway. Communication with Ricard was excellent. In advance of our trip, he provided a detailed package of information on the apartment and City attractions. During our stay, Ricard responded quickly to our questions and was kind enough to arrange taxi service to the airport on our departure. Thank you Ricard!
This was the perfect apartment to stay in for the weekend. It was spacious with tall ceilings, two balconies, and every amenity you could need. The neighborhood was nice with good restaurants and cafes. The metro was about a 10 min walkaway - a pretty walk though.
I would definitely stay here again! Ricard was great with communication and timeliness.
Richard made us feel very welcome. He came early so that we could store our luggage since our flight arrived before the apartment's check in time. The apartment is exactly as seen in the pictures and description. The added surprise was a large back terrace where the washing machine is located which allowed us to easily hang our clothes out for drying. The neighborhood is typical Barcelonan family living. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would come back again!
