El departmento es muy lindo y cómodo, la terraza con él jacuzzi espectacular.
La ubicación inmejorable.
Ariadna muy atenta y siempre respondió rápido.
Very nice, cozy little apartment in a great location. Ariadna was super helpful when we arrived and made the stay very comfortable.
Perfect base for exploring Barcelona! After a full day of walking around the tourist spots you can't beat a cold beer on the roof garden and a dip in the hot tub!
The Host was very welcoming and explained everything we needed to know, can't fault it.
This was the perfect place to spend the first three days of our trip to Barcelona. Gracia is a great place to begin a trip as it is clean and calm, not at all overwhelming, and different from other parts of Barcelona. A good area to "get your feet wet"!Ariadna & Sergi's place is right near many major sights yet in the middle of a neighborhood so it did not at all feel touristy or crowded. We walked everywhere, like the Sagrada Familia and La Pedrera.
The apartment is very safe and secure. Exactly like the pictures. Very clean, great design, comfortable furniture and bed. The washing machine worked great. The hot tub took a long time to heat up but once it did it was so lovely after long days on foot. Having a private patio with a hot tub is such a huge bonus! But really, the best part was just feeling like we lived in a little Barcelona studio in a very nice, luxurious part of town - we could pretend to be locals and the apartment had everything we needed. Plenty of space for two people.
Sergi met us to check in and went above & beyond explaining everything and giving us a few suggestions to get started. He even spent time giving us special bike shop recommendations.
Ariadna was so quick to respond via email to questions and with info, as well as my request for a recommendation for a very special birthday dinner (and her recommendation was absolutely perfect, an amazing experience...ABaC...unbelievable!)
All in all, I would highly recommend this place, location, and the hosts!
Had an amazing three nights at Ariadna's gorgeous apartment in gracia. The place was spotless with lovely fresh sheets and towels. The rooftop was fab on it's own - but the jacuzzi and sauna were the icing on the cake. Super location with access to all areas. Would recommend to anyone and will definitely be going back!
Ariadna was a great host and her apartment is excellent. I have been to Barcelona before but Gracia has easily my favorite neighborhood. Great location next to many restaurants and bars, and the jacuzzi is perfect after a long day of walking.
Appartement design, bien situé. En métro vous êtes en moins de 10mn à la place de Catalogne. Belle terrasse et espace Spa très sympa. Je recommande cet appartement !
Si vous venez en voiture prévoyez un budget parking car il n'y a pas de place dans le secteur, vous devrez vous garer en parking sous terrain.
