Perfect place for visiting Barcelona! Super modern, clean with all the amenities plus a hot tub / upper deck for late night drinks and/or breakfast to start the day. Apt is bigger in person with lots of drawer/ closet space. Ariadna also left little bath amenities and detergent for laundry and dishwashing. Definitely better than staying at a hotel.
We liked being located further away from La Ramblas, everything is quieter and relaxed. Gracia has great food in the neighborhood and Eixample was just 10mins walking. Metro station and bus lines are also super close.
Ariadna was a great host. Checkin / checkout was easy. She gave us a map and great recommendations for exploring. Highly recommended!
This place is Out Standing! The apartment is stunning and exactly as described. the Spa was a massive help after walking all day in the heat it was a nice way to cool down and relax and get ready for another big walk exploring. Ariadna was an amazing host! she let us in a couple of hours earlier, she then gave us a map and showed us everything thats around the apartment and within Barcelona, she was the most helpful host we had. she went over an above what she needed to do as a host. we will definitely stay here again, Highly Highly recommended.
We had a great experience staying at Ariadna's apartment. It was extremely comfortable for my mother and I, with one of us using the bedroom and the other sleeping on the sofa bed. We enjoyed the terrace, although our visit coincided with a bit of a heatwave and we found that we weren't able to use it as much as we'd have liked. The air conditioning certainly helped with dealing with the heat and made our stay very bearable. The location of the apartment is fantastic- close to a number of main roads, convenient metro stations, places to eat, and some tourist attractions. The neighborhood was calm and quiet, perfect for relaxing after a long day of sightseeing. The apartment itself was clean and very well maintained. Ariadna met us to let us into the apartment and also was extremely helpful with giving us a map and pointing out places to visit, where to pick up food, etc. We really appreciated this! We would definitely recommend staying here.
Ariadna was a great host. She met my boyfriend and i at the studio and gave us a tour, and also provided a map and told us where we could go and how to get there. She answered all the questions we had and wad very helpful.
The studio itself was amazing. Very clean, new and comfortable. The bed was very comfortable, with comfy pillows, allowing for great sleep. However, if you're like me and eventually roll to the middle of the bed, it might be a tiny bit uncomfortable as it is two twin mattresses pressed together (i had my leg fall in between the two a few times, but it wasnt a big deal).
The sauna and jacuzzi are great for some unwinding after a long day of traveling. It was clean, and very relaxing.
Id definitely recommend staying at Ariadna's studio!
Very clean and spacious apartment,
Very helpful host,
Lovely and convinient with local shops and resturants close,
Cabs are so cheap so we got them everywhere, but the apartment is in walking distance within everything,
Only downside was the neighbours behind us using power tools at 8 am after a night out was a bit of a headache.
Would highly reccomend staying here though and would look to book again when in Barcelona
Ariadna is a wonderful host. She met us at the apartment and gave us a thorough tour of all its terrific facilities. The apartment is ideal for one or two people, very modern and very well maintained. The hot tub and sauna were icing on the cake. And the location is excellent. It was very easy to navigate all over Barcelona from the nearby metro station.
You cannot go wrong with this beautiful apartment. It is in a wonderful location with a tree lined street that fronts the building. Every item in the apartment has been thought out with great care and there is nothing lacking. The towels and bedding are the quality of any five star resort. The peaceful deck upstairs with the hot tub and sauna provides a great way to end the day after sightseeing around lovely Barcelona. What makes this apartment even better is the care of the host. Ariadna's husband met us upon arrival and spent time showing us around their well equipped apartment as well as going over a map of Barcelona and answering all of our questions. Also, Ariadna stayed in contact with us before coming to the apartment as well as answering questions. Please do not hesitate at all to book this apartment.
