Greetings from Barcelona! This is a recently refurbished 3 bedroom beautiful apartment (sleeps 5) available in Central Barcelona.
Ideally families only please, no large groups looking to party here I am afraid!
Perfectly located in the prestigious L'Eixample area this apartment is inbetween the fabulous renowned shopping street Passeig de Gracia and Gaudi’s famous spectacular La Sagrada Familia. It takes only 10 minutes to walk to either from here!
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!
Located on the 8th floor (with a lift) we have a stunning view of Tibidabo, Barcelona’s tallest mountain which is lit up at night-time. You can enjoy this view with a complimentary cold bottle of Cava from the delightful peaceful balcony.
As it is on the 8th floor and at the back of the building please note that this apartment is surprisingly quiet considering it is in the heart of Barcelona. Here's a list of of things we provide to our guest/s:
⁃ High Speed WiFi connection
⁃ 32” LCD screen cable TV
⁃ The new kitchen is small however it has all brand new modern appliances such as American style double large fridge, microwave, oven, cooker, washing machine, dishwasher, toaster, kettle (selection of teas) along with cooking utensils, pots, pans and more

The apartment was very nice. Great view of the hills surrounding Barcelona and the sunsets are amazing from the balcony. The place was decorated very nicely and updated with modern appliances. Fridge was very big and washing machine worked very well. Beds are very comfortable. Phil and Fiona were very nice and gave us helpful information for tourist trip that are available. They also let us come early to leave our luggage so we had more time visiting the city. We would stay again and highly recommend to others.
Great place just as advertised. Communication was seamless and Fiona was waiting for us at the apartment just as scheduled. Fiona gave a great Paella restaurant recommendation and spent the time to familiarize us to the neighborhood and Barcelona. I would definitely stay here again!
Nice Appartment, fully equipped, well situated: hence everything that you need. Very friendly wellcoming, no problems at all. Everytime I like to go to Barcelona, I'll check, if your's is free. Thanks a lot!
We were welcomed by Pol, a friend of a friend I believe. He was really nice, gave us good tips and recommendations of where to go. The flat is nice and well located
Phil was waiting at the apartment when we arrived. He was friendly and gave us information about the apartment. He was also sent us a link to a website with really helpful information about Barcelona. There was no laundry detergent in the apartment and so we purchased some from the store and he paid us back. That was an unexpected nice gesture.
The apartment itself was a disappointment. It looks nicer in the pictures and doesn't deserve all of the positive reviews it gets. We regret staying here and wished we stayed at a hotel instead. This was our first time using airbnb and I'm not sure if we'll use it again.
The beds were hard, the apartment was hot, the A/C and fans were noisy. The bathroom was dirty. The bathroom tub water didn't drain properly during a shower. The TV didn't work very well (would get stuck on channel 17 and would have to power off the TV). The internet WiFi had issues (I had to login to the WiFi router admin page, delete MAC address entries for older devices because otherwise we couldn't connect more than one device).
Thank you Phil and Fiona for your hospitality. Sorry for the negative review, but, this apartment just did not meet our expectations. It's probably because we're used to staying in minimum 4-star hotels.
Wow, to say we are shocked at your review is an understatement. For anyone looking to book this amazing apartment please read all the other reviews and you will see that every other guest has nothing but positive things to say about it. Here is our response to this guests review.. Okay, lets address your ‘issues’. There actually was detergent in the apartment but you were not sure which one it was. Perhaps we need to label this to make it clearer for future guests. Nonetheless after hearing you bought some, I left some money out for you. Next point “nicer in the pictures” I think if you read any of our reviews, you’ll find that every other guests have been more than happy. Here is a guests review from June 2015 “The apartment was exactly as described, spacious and comfortable”. Your comment “doesn't deserve all of the positive reviews it gets” Please note that all reviews on Airbnb are from guests who have stayed in the apartment. This apartment deservers every single positive review. From all the reviews on this apartment, is quite apparent that there is nothing at all wrong with it. Okay, on to the beds, Its a tough thing being a host and knowing that every guest has their own preferences with regards to things like the hardness or softness of a mattress. We go mid range! This type of bed obviously didn’t suit you preference. May I suggest that when you are next looking for a vacation rental you check with the host or hotel that they have super soft mattresses. (Sorry if Im going on here, but I want to address all of this guests issues) “ The bathroom tub water didn't drain properly” I came down the day you reported this to us and solved the issue, so unsure as to why you had to put this in a review, without mentioning that the problem was resolved, and quickly I might add. “The internet WiFi had issues” No other guest past or the ones there at the moment have had issues, so we’ll put this down to a user error. “ we're used to staying in minimum 4-star hotels.” Can I suggest that perhaps you should stick to staying in such places as we feel that not only is our apartment one of the best in the city, also all past guests agree. We work extremely hard for all our guest, and we love hosting people from all over the world. To all future guests reading this, if you are looking for a home away from home, and an amazing apartment, with hosts who are on hand to help you and deal with any small issues quickly, then please do get in touch, we’d love to have you come and stay.
Phil was an excellent friendly host and provided ample communication well in advance of the trip to ensure a smooth check in process. He was also courteous and polite and ensured everything was in order during our stay.
The apartment had all the amenities to comfortably accommodate our party of 4 and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay here.
Beautiful, clean, and comfortable spot in the perfect location. Our hosts could not have been more attentive or accomodating. We had a fabulous time in BCN and would love to come back!
