This is a perfect place to stay when you visit the great city of Barcelona. It is outside the tourist area in a quiet neighborhood very close to Parc Guëll. The appartment is indeed very quiet, with all facilities. It has a nice small terrace: breakfast in the sun. There is a nice breakfast and coffee bar next door, a baker and local shops within one or two minutes walk, a good restaurant across the street. Two minutes away there is the metro station of Line L5 with good connections to all important places.
Jesus Cariñena has been a good host.
Note that, because the appartment is built on a steep hill, you have to go down two stairs to get into the appartment.
We will choose this place again for any future visit to Barcelona. And four days in Barcelona is just barely enough to see just a few of the many interesting, romantic, happy places and parks.
Jesus is a great host. He is very attentive and courteous.
The place is fantastic. Very spacious for the 3 of us, with a nice balcony and patio. Having a parking space in a city like Barcelona was also a bonus. Highly recommended.
Perfect apartment! Perfect host! Our friend very like this place!
We had a wonderful stay in Barcelona thanks to our host Jesus and the weather! From the moment we arrived, following the good directions on the website, Jesus was most welcoming, explaining everything to us and assuring us that he would be available should we need him for anything. The fact that we did not as the apartment was so well furnished and equipped speaks positively about our experience. The apartment itself was lovely - a perfect retreat from the busyness of Barcelona after lots of sightseeing. It was comfortable, warm and light, with everything we needed to cook, eat, and keep clean, as well as relax with TV, music or internet. Beds were comfortable (the double one a little squeaky!). As far as convenience goes, there are shops, pharmacies, banks and cafés nearby. We tried Casa Fausto one evening and were very pleased with it.
With regard to transport, the apartment could hardly be bettered. A bus stop just outside with a frequent service through the city and down to Port Vell, and a metro station 5 minutes’ walk away. We used the T-10 ticket system and found it worked very well. Also within easy walking distance (downhill!) of Park Guell. We had a car as we had come from a family wedding in Zaragoza, and it was helpful to be able to leave it securely in the parking garage until we needed it to take a trip out to Montserrat, take family members to the airport and for our own return.
If you want to be in the middle of the action, then this apartment is not for you. But if you want somewhere clean, quiet, well-furnished, warm and comfortable, with fantastic transport links, this is a great place to stay. We certainly hope to go back. Thank you Jesus.
We had an excellent holiday thanks to the fact that we chose Jesus's apartment for our stay in Barcelona. Jesus and his wife are wonderful friendly people who are willing to help with everything : transport information,where everything is , how it works , etc.
The meeting was arranged as well . Everything in the apartment matched the description and even surpassed our expectations. The apartment really became our home. Felt that Jesus equips all with the soul : flat is very comfortable , cozy , very good for families. The apartment has enough space so that everyone has their own separate place at the same time have a place to gather as a family, there is a comfortable lounge and dining area.
The house has two terraces, the first is very good for a light breakfast or dinner outdoors ( though we were in January! ), the second - the bottom - with the age-old lemon tree , was a great place , where our little son could even play football, while we were preparing breakfast :) Despite the fact that close to home is the street with public transport , the apartment was always perfect silence and we could hear the birds singing outside. This effect is possible because the house is built like natural's landshaft and flat descends from the mountain , leaving the noise of the city at the entrance. Nothing will not break your dream, of course, if you forget to take on youw wake-up watches :)
Neighborhood: El Coll is a wonderful quiet area, in which , however , has everything you could wish: parks and playgrounds, shops , cafes, restaurants. Just next door is a lovely bakery , the smell of fresh bread from which attracted us in the mornings . Excellent transport links : day and night from anywhere in the city can be reached for 1 euro for person (if you buy a ticket T10) , because right in front of the house there is a bus stop where stops including night bus , and in two steps is metro station .
About the proximity of the Park Guell mentioned in the description and it is absolutely true . At the same time you walk to the park by the top entrance, not main (lower) entrance. So it does not have to climb the hill , and the whole trip going down the mountain and not tiring, even with a little child .
Special thanks Jesús for giving parking for our car. It really helped , given that is quite difficult to find parking in Barcelona or it will not be cheap.
Special thanks to Jesus wife Nina, who was also very friendly and helpful for us. Nina speaks Russian and we had more possibilities for talking:)
We felt what we came to good friends!
First of all I would like to thank Jesus and Nina for being so nice to us and so friendly... Tha apartment is really a cosy place to stay for a couple of days. and the neighborhood is so peaceful and quiet... Its near to every convenient store... We really love the aparment. You only need clothes and food because every basic things you need is already there... I recommend it to everyone...
We've had a great time at Jesus place. We liked the flat as it has all the amenities and even some extras included such as cooking basics, towels etc.
Thanks for a great time!
We had a really pleasant stay at Jesus' apartment! Jesus was very friendly, and the apartment was complete, clean and comfortable. We stayed with 4 persons during a weekend and it was just perfect! However, if you travel by metro, make sure to take the right exit!
We had a nice time at Jesus's place, it's in a great location in fact it's 20 foot steps from the bus stops !! And from grocery shops and restaurants . We loved it and I wish we could of hung out on the balcony in the sun but this time of year was to cold . The only thing I would say is we needed more blankets in the bedroom downstairs so no big deal at all . Jesus was lovely and friendly and showed us around the unit thoroughly and took us to the private lock up garage just around the corner .
We stayed two nights at Jesus' in Barcelona. The apartment is very big, comfortable, clean and well equipped. There's a private parking space around the corner. Jesus is very friendly and helps out wherever he can. We enjoyed the time staying in the apartment and recommend it very much.
