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!
I can't explain how beautiful the apartment is. Despite having Barcelona on our doorstep part of me just wanted to stay in and relax! Phil met us and made sure we had everything we needed. The kitchen is equipped so cooking is a lovely option. The apartment is stylish, clean with the comfiest beds and the best shower ever!! Phil and Fiona were very helpful during the planning of our trip, responding to emails very quickly and sharing Pinterest boards full of suggestions for tourism and eating. The area is fantastic, stunning buildings and amazing restaurants and only a short walk from more touristy areas. The perfect balance of local life and sight seeing. The apartment is a home from home, the furnishings and personal touches make it so special, I wouldn't ever book a hotel when returning to Barcelona now, I can't wait to come back and bring more friends to experience this!
Couldn't have asked for a better experience, this place does indeed have that wow factor, the photos are what you really get! Phil was an amazing host, easy going, super helpful, the checkin/checkout couldn't have been easier. For those wanting high speed internet, it's a rock solid connection. Overall, seriously nothing but praise!
Truly great place in such a cool part of Barcelona. With the high ceiling the apartment feels very large, and the master bedroom is also spacious and well done. Phil was super helpful with both meeting my at the apartment for the checkin and after I gave some feedback he also helped improve my say. It's also a really nice option to have him bring over a food basket - bring greeted with juices, fruit, and other staples is quite a luxury!
From the moment you walk in to this apartment you will be so impressed. The clean lines, the flooring, we were here in the middle of winter of winter and the concrete floor was warm. The large bed was beyond comfortable, I can't begin to explain how comfortable this bed was I didn't even want to get out and explore Barcelona in the morning, I wanted to stay in bed. The kitchen had everything you needed, the living room had a TV that even had a few English-speaking channels on it. The location of the flat was perfect. In either direction you walked when you went out of the apartment there were wonderful restaurants and shops in either direction. The metro was very convenient you could walk anywhere you needed to go or take the subway. I would highly recommend this flat to anyone going to Barcelona . Hopefully I'll be back soon for another great sleep in bed Barcelona.
This place is indescribable, top of the top! We traveled all over Europe, and I have to say that this was the place we enjoyed the most!
Phil & Fiona are absolutely terrific! Very responsive and very professional, I wouldn't change a thing from my stay. I wholeheartedly think that it is under priced! Huge and ultra modern.
Something out of a magazine!
Thanks Phil and Fiona!
I will no doubt be returning !
Every aspect of the fact lived up to my expectations. It was a very welcoming atmosphere and the assistant Noa was a pleasant encounter. I am looking forward to rent other apartments from Phil and Fiona in the future and can only recommend staying in one of their apartments.
We had the best time at Phil and Fiona apartment. Communication was great from beginning to end. The place itself is amazing. It is very spacious (even more than it looks on the pictures), well designed and furnished and perfectly located in Gracia.
I'll surely consider one of Phil and Fiona apartment next time I come to BCN.
