Great location, great flat - really good kitchen, lounge and shower, and the neighbourhood of Gracia right on the doorstep. The main bedroom was dark, but that's no bad thing. I would happily stay here again - it's a good find.
We loved this apartment! It's a nice neighborhood and building, and the apartment was very clean when we arrived. We were able to walk to both La Sagrada Familia and La Rambla on different days within about 20 mins, and there's a subway stop about a minute away. Very highly recommended.
The apartment was very large and in a nice area. It feels very safe and isnt noisy. You need to use the metro to get to most of the main sites in Barcelona, but public transport is very easy to use.
The apartment has air-conditioning, which is a relief as it was very hot when we stayed.
Check in was easy and he was understanding when our train was delayed.
Nous avons vraiment apprécié ce séjour à Barcelone. Malgré notre retard, Gonçal nous a attendu et nous a expliqué toutes les modalités de séjour. L'appartement était similaire aux photos, confortable. Le quartier est très bien situé avec ses propres petits magasins et supermarchés. L'appartement est desservi par le "FGC" à moins de 5 minutes et par plusieurs bus qui amènent directement au centre-ville, auquel on peut aussi se rendre à pied si l'on veut.
Garcia is a wonderful neighbourhood that isn't swarming with tourists. Gonsal's apartment is across the street from a metro station and a 5 min walk to a market area. It is extremely convenient. I had a few public transport hiccups when arriving but Gonsal was waiting for me in the apartment. He is really friendly and helpful. The apartment itself is beautiful and it felt like home for the 5 days I was there. It was well stocked with all the necessities. Oh and the aircon is a real blessing!
My husband and I and our two daughters stayed at Goncals apartment for three nights. We were met at the apartment and shown through all we needed to know. The apartment is well located, has a great kitchen and a bright and spacious living room area. There is plenty of info about Barcelona in the apartment. We enjoyed our stay here.
We're very happy to provide an entirely positive review of Dreams Barcelona's apartment in the Gracia district. Our recent ten day stay was our first experience of AirBnB, though our daughter stayed in this same apartment three years before and recommended it.
The Gracia district is a professional residential neighbourhood. There are many restaurants, markets, and shops of international standard in the area though (to US residents) it may appear unremarkable. It's not. We highly recommend Bopan on Rambla de Catalunya, the local market and food merchants around Place de la Llibertat, and Diagonal for shopping, supplies, and eating when you're too tired to venture further afield.
All cleaning was prepaid. We did some on leaving nevertheless, but being able to walk out the door without the place being in the same pristine state we found it was a relief. The apartment is comprehensively equipped with cooking, cleaning, and everyday supplies; guides to local amenities are on the shelves; the internet connection is fast and reliable.
Criticisms? Only two. We wanted to put the trash out, but the local recycling bins are hard to distinguish and not close by. I think we put our glass recycling in the wrong place. A little more advice would help for people who don't want to leave everything to the paid help. We're sure they have enough to do. And the shower can be slippery; having a anti-slip shower mat would be a safety feature.
But that's it. Goncal and Sonia offer a lovely bright modern apartment, with a nice balcony in a convenient and fascinating part of Barcelona, comprehensively equipped, and with a lot of information for first time visitors. We recommend it in every way. And we can't wait to come back.
