Nous avons passé un excellent séjour dans le duplex d'Ariadna.
L'accueil d'Ariadna fut ponctuel malgré notre arrivé tardive et très chaleureux avec conseil sur notre séjour. Le duplex est très agréable, confortable et luxueux. Très bonne literie, draps de bain et couette impeccables, climatisation dans la chambre et dans le salon. Salle de bain parfaite. Cuisine super équipée avec lave linge. Le sauna et le jacuzzi sont un délice après une bonne journée de marche.
L'appartement est idéalement situé quartier Gracia. Métro tout proche vous menant plaza de Cataluna et sur les fameuses Ramblas.
Si on cherchait un petit bémol, la rue est très passante donc il y a un peu de bruit mais ce n'est pas gênant pour dormir.
Cet appartement est aussi bien qu'une suite dans 3 étoiles.
Enfin, Barcelone quelle merveille !
Love the place. Cozy. Perfect. Easy to get around barcelona. We like to walk, so the metro wasn't needed. Ariadna was very helpful. We'd come back again.
The apartment was exactly as pictured. Wonderful neighborhood, many local shops and choices for groceries. Ariadna was there when we arrived, gave us ample information and then left us alone. The apartment was clean, efficient and very comfortable. We biked Barcelona each day and used the hot tub each night. It was perfect.
We had a lovely stay at Ariadna's comfortable and beautiful flat. Everything is exactly as described-- clean, centrally located, well-appointed. Ariadna is a delight, and she gave us great advice about making the most of our time in Barcelona. The sauna and hot tub were welcome breaks after walking 15+ miles each day to soak up the great weather and wonderful sites of Barcelona. For those who are curious, the hot tub is full-size (aka not a jacuzzi bath tub). There are grocery stores, bakeries, restaurants and banks all within a block or two. We walked the short walk to Ramblas Catalunya for dinner each night, where we could engage in some great people watching and eat wonderful food. All in all, I can't recommend Ariadna's flat highly enough for those who are looking for a comfortable, relaxing place to stay while in the city.
Ariadna welcomed us personally. She is very friendly and explained us several important things to do and recommended places to visit in the neighbourhood of Gracia. Just in a 5-minute-walk from the Appartement you find a lovely market and a supermarket too. Gracia has lots of nice bars and tapas restaurants. Busses and the metro line are either in front of the door or 3-4 Minutes to go, so that we never spent more than 15 minutes for the way to the center of town or sightseeing-goals.
The flat is well-equipped, especially the kitchen, so, if you want, you can cook for yourself.
One negative point is the very loud traffic noise from Via Augusta, so that it's not possible to sleep with open windows either having a really relaxing time on the terrace. Additionally very annoying is the monotone noise of the permanently running pump for the two jaccuzis. It would be better, to stop the pumps during the night.
Check-in and check-out was very easy and Ariadna made it possible to let our luggage in the flat till the afternoon because we had a late flight .
We had a very nice week in Barcelona and say many thanks to Ariadna for this beautiful flat.
Ariadne made us feel very welcome and gave us some good tips on Barcelona. The apartment was very comfortable and situated in a nice area away from the main tourist area but with very easy access to it
