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.
Perfect host, experience and apartment.
