Ricard was friendly and welcoming. The apartment was very lovely. It was clean and the bed was very comfortable. The main terrace with the view across the rooftops gets the sun in the mornings- perfect for breakfast outside! The apartment is located in the charming, residential neighbourhood of Gracia with many restaurants, cafes and small shops for daily supplies nearby. We would certainly stay again.
We really enjoyed our stay at Ricard's apartment. It was a very good standard and it was lovely to have breakfast on the balcony. The location is great for nice restaurants, shops and bars. Ricard was nice and friendly and I would recommend staying in his apartment.
Wir haben ein sehr schönes Wochenende in Barcelona verbracht. Die Lage des Appartemts ist wirklich traumhaft, mitten in einem wunderschönen aber vor allem ruhigen Viertel. Zu Fuß sind von hier aus Bars, Restaurants und Geschäfte bequem erreichbar, sogar die Ramblas kann man in etwa 10-15 Minuten erreichen. Die Wohnung selbst hat uns super gefallen , modern möbliert und vor allem sehr sauber. Falls wir nochmal nach Barcelona reisen, würden wir gerne hier ein weiteres Mal wohnen.
Ricard was extremely helpful both on arrival and on departure. The flat is as advertised, and the morning view of the Sagrada Familia cathedral from the rooftop terrace was excellent every day, and a great way to start the day. The kitchen is good, the bed is excellent, and it is a very quiet neighbourhood. I was there for six weeks, and it was very useful to have the washing machine and the decent kitchen. Gracia is very handy for virtually anything in Barcelona, a 15 minute walk to the Sagrada Familia, and plenty of nearby shops and restaurants, including an excellent one on the street. I would recommend this apartment to anyone.
Staying in Ricard's apartment was an exceptional experience. The apartment contained everything we needed for a week-long stay, and was in the perfect location - in a quiet street but only a walk away from lively markets, restaurants, bars and many of Barcelona's tourist sights. Ricard was there to meet us as arranged and was courteous and helpful. Highly recommended!
Ricard is a really nice, hospitable and flexible person. The house is perfectly clean and situated in a very good neighborhood.
The area suits great for two people and is as described, so bright during the daytime and warm enough at nights.
For those who are fan of Flamenco dance, there is a great show in 15 minutes walk called "Palaceo del Flamenco" which I really suggest to those in the downtown.
We will be back there again, thanks Ricard.
We had to unexpectedly extend our stay. Ricard was a pleasure to deal with. Loved the apartment, location and host was one of the best I have ever come across. An A+ experience
