You are also in walking distance to Gracia the most authentic and relaxed neighborhood in Barcelona, quiet yet lively and teaming with Movie Theatres, Cafes, Bookstores and Organic or Bio Bakeries, yogurt shops and most of all the Woki market!

I can see why Phil and Fiona are super hosts. They are very well organized and keep things running smoothly. Their three bedroom apt is located in the L'Eixample neighborhood, which is very clean, has nice wide sidewalks, and is centrally located to all tourist attractions. And if you don't want to walk, taxis are relatively inexpensive and abundant to take you anywhere. The apartment is modern, clean, and good sized for 5 adults. There is a modern elevator, so you won't have to walk to the top. Lots of clean towels, linens, toilet paper, paper towels for use. You won't be lacking for anything. We were able to make breakfast every morning in the apartment. (For those of us who come from cities where everything starts early, Barcelona doesn't get going until much later.)The last two nights in Barcelona, we found a jamon (iberian ham) and cheese shop, run by a friendly gentleman. The shop was only a few minutes walk away from the apt, and the Boulangerie bread store was caddy corner from the jamon store. So, for about 35 euros, 5 people sat at the dining room table at Phil and Fiona ' s apartment, snacking on 5 different types of Iberian ham 3 different types of cheeses, 2 bottles of wine, and great bread. I describe this scenario, because Phil and Fiona ' s apartment is so comfortable and clean, that you don't mind just hanging out in it after a long day of seeing the sites. We plan to come back next year, and will definitely stay at this apt again if it's available.
This is a lovely apartment in a great location for getting around Barcelona. Fiona and Phil made us feel welcome and asked that we contact them if we needed their assistance with anything -which we didn't, but it was great to know the offer was there.
A well-equipped apartment in an excellent central location. Phil and Fiona were great hosts and were able to arrange access to the apartment to our group who all arrived at different times. The apartment was very clean and had ample space for the four of us. Fiona took the time to explain the neighbourhood, how to find the famous sights – most of which could be reached by foot, and how to get to our business meeting.
There had been a little glitch getting the hired car to pick us up at the airport, but we got a taxi and called Phil; he met us at the apartment so we could drop off our bags. There were fresh flowers in the living room and the kitchen had been stocked with the groceries we had ordered beforehand. He was very friendly and charming and provided us with a welcome packet that included all sorts of information about the apartment and neighborhood. Unfortunately, we couldn’t meet Fiona, as she was ill that week.
Was the listing description accurate?
Very accurate description, though the apartment was a bit smaller than expected. Still pretty, very clean, and homey. A surprisingly nice view from the terrace.
What was the neighborhood like?
Beautiful neighborhood with a gorgeous cathedral down the block, a huge market just a ten minute walk away, pretty buildings, cafes, the metro – and yet nice and quiet at night. Perfect.
Overall, it was a wonderful stay and we would definitely take advantage of Phil and Fiona’s hospitality again.
Fiona was at the apartment when we arrived to welcome us. She showed us around and then we share the CAVA which was waiting for us in the fridge. She gave us great advise on restaurants and supermarkets in the area. It was already around a bit late so we left to eat in one of the restaurants she recommended which was just 5 minutes away. This was a good French restaurant which was exactly what I need to celebrate my birthday.
This place is fabulous! The location is prime - easy walking distance to the Metro and shopping, and a lovely view of Tibidabo from the balcony. The space was more than adequate, extremely clean and uncluttered. The kitchen is completely furnished and modern, and everything we needed was on hand. Thanks for an excellent experience!
We Realty enjoyed staying at Phil & Fiona's apartment. It is very central - only minutes away from Passeig di Gracia and it is very accessible (metro near by). The flat is on the 8th floor (2 level below top and with a lift!), it has a North facing mountain view yet it is very light. Being on the "courtyard" (in Barcelona these "courtyards" are huge - nothing depressing!) means that it is quite + roller shutters on the windows = real blackout. All that combined with the very good beddings means that we slept like logs after our long walking session in Barcelona. When we arrived, there was a nice XMas tree and a complimentary bottle of good Cava - excellent for the Xmas break spirit! The apartment offers all that is described, it is clean and safe. We thought that the living room is better than the pictures! We had minor internet and boiler issues but Noa whom works with the owners fixed the problems in no time - perfect service. On and all, we will be very happy to recommend this apartment and surely we will stay over again.
