Interaction with Guests
We're on hand if you need is.
Gracia is in a district bubbling with local bars, cinemas and theaters. There is one of the few original version cinemas that offer 8 different shows. The most characteristic thing about the neighbourhood is it’s squares full with bars and terraces to have a drink or a lunch. Many might compare Gracia with New York's East Village. It’s close enough to all the touristic spots (you can even walk to Park Güell or the Sagrada Familia) but it is far enough to avoid touristic crowds.
Gracias celebrates a unique and very popular 10 day street festival every third week in august. Street communities compete with each other by creatively decorating the streets. It is a very vibrant and fun festival with a lot of music and performances.
Metro and by foot, you're central!
We are 10 mins away from the metro station which can takes you within 3 stops to the city centre and the gothic quarter. Or you can do an easy 20 min downhill walk along Passeig de Gracia down to Plaza Catalunya and the beginning of the Ramblas.
Other Things to Note
IMPORTANT: If you do not arrive until after 10pm on the day of arrival please contact us before making your booking.
You enter the apartment through the garage. Its not a traditional front door.
- No smoking inside the apartment
- Respectful and reasonable quiet noise levels especially after 11pm.
- No loud parties please!
- With the hot weather we would really appreciate if you could clean down kitchen surfaces at least once a day (only if used) and bring out the garbage at least every second day. This is necessary in the hot weather, thank you! The garbage bins are located very close to your apartment - near the main front door. They are the big grey plastic containers - you can't miss them! Cheers!
- Most importantly relax and enjoy your stay!
Fiona è stata molto disponibile e ha sempre risposto ai miei messaggi velocemente e con dovizia di particolari. La casa era perfetta, ed è esattamente come (website hidden) siamo trovate molto bene, bellissima prima esperienza con AirBnb!
El loft es impresionante, mejor de lo que se aprecia en la fotos. hemos estado muy agusto. La verdad es que repetiremos
Phil and Fiona made us feel very welcome to Barcelona! When we booked our reservation, we were immediately sent lots of things to do around the neighborhood and the city itself. Including very helpful facts about how to get to the apartment many different ways. The photos of the apartment are wonderful, but really it's even better in person.
When we arrived, Fiona met us and showed us around the apartment. Being our first time in the city, she took out a map and gave us a lay of the land. This became our road map for the rest of the trip, and it was perfect.
The street is quiet, but active which was a nice pace to live next to. The apartment is within close proximity to anything you could need: metro, groceries, cafés, & great tapas. There is even a hard drive of movies, which came in handy during siesta (we had a hard time figuring out how to work the tv and Phil popped right over to help. Low and behold, there was an "on" switch...who knew?)
I would highly recommend this apartment and renting from Phil & Fiona. I have already suggested this listing to friends who are visiting in a few months.
An amazing, well-equipped and spotless apartment in a wonderfully relaxed area that feels much more comfortable and local than the tourist areas of the city.
We had a perfect trip to Barcelona and can't thank Phil and Fiona enough for helping make it so. Their communication and assistance leading up to our stay was spot on and arrival/departure was incredibly easy. I would highly recommend staying here, or anywhere else that they have available, as no doubt they will make you feel as welcome as they did to us.
If you're after a more unique experience, full of character and charm, then this apartment and the Gracia area are for you.
(Phil & Fiona - We look forward to booking with you again in the future!)
Wow Sam, we are both smiling here so happy with your wonderful review and private feedback also, thank you so so much. We know it was your first airbnb experience and to know it was such a great experience is exactly what we want to deliver. Thanks so much again and we look forward to welcoming you back some time in the future. Cheers!!
Phil and Fiona were great -- very attentive. The place was beautiful and just like the photos. La Gracia neighborhood is definitely the place to be--very quiet and relaxed, with plenty to see/do/eat/drink nearby. Highly recommended!
Beautiful loft. Great space. In a good location. Great communication with hosts.
This apartment is exactly as it looks in the photos, it's visually amazing, is full of little quirks and has absolutely everything you'll need! Plus it couldn't be any more central. Phil met us on arrival and briefed us on everything we needed to know - he's a top host! I honestly can't recommend this place highly enough!
