  • The place and location were great. The apartment was clean and a perfect size for a few nights stay. It's within walking distance of a tram stop from the airport and La Rambla. They're numerous eating and drinking spots in the area and a few blocks walking from the beach. I would recommend this place and would stay again. Federica was also very flexible with check in times and responded quickly to emails and texts. Everything went very smoothly no complaints.

  • Federica and Vinche were very responsive about arrival time and provided suggestions on how to get the apartment as well as local restaurants. Our flight was delayed a bit so Vinche met us at the apartment and walked us through the place. In hindsight, I should've asked more questions about locking the building door, closing the blinds, and using the washer (we found out too late that it is only a washer and not a dryer) but I was tired from traveling. Either way, Federica and Vinche responded to my text questions and phone call immediately so everything worked out.

    The apartment photos are accurate but they do not show some work that is being done to the ceiling in the kitchen area and bathroom. I'm not sure exactly what is going on, but it left the place quite humid and our bathroom towels (only 2 were supplied for a 2 night stay) would not dry after hanging all day. I was told upon arrival that there was some construction going on upstairs so I'm not sure if this has something to do with it. The hot water does not last more than 10 minutes, so take quick showers!

    I also was surprised by the 30 euro cleaning fee considering the price of the stay and size of the place. I was asked to pay this in cash upon arrival which was a bit inconvenient.

    This is a great location, right near the metro and a few restaurants and markets with a 5 minute walk. If this is your first time in Barcelona and you arrive at night, this street as well as others can feel a bit shady but I can assure you it is safe. In the morning it is quite noisy as there are walking tours and shops opening on the street, so don't plan on sleeping in.

  • Siamo stati un mese in questo appartamento.

    La doccia otturata per 20 giorni, oltre al lavabo e al lavandino in cucina.
    La TV è solo un soprammobile polveroso, non funziona.
    Il letto è ad una piazza e mezza ed appoggia sul pavimento, risultato mal di schiena.
    Affaccia sulla strada dove c'è un via vai di macchine e camion che durante la notte non permettono di dormire.
    Nell'annuncio c'è scritto max 5 persone, non so come potrebbero andarci 5 persone in 30 metri quadri.

    I proprietari sono gentili ed hanno cercato di risolvere i vari problemi che abbiamo avuto, senza grande risultato.

  • Most perfect place for a week-end getaway! Federica was very available from the moment we made the reservation and Vinche welcomed us warmly. Would recommend this place to anyone, the location is perfect, there is anything you need there... And the hosts are lovely!

  • What a lovely little apartment.
    First off, location was superb. Right next to Palau de la Musical and Placa de Cataluna with the metro and central to everything was only 5 minutes walk away. The apartment was perfect for us as a couple, and was exactly what we wanted - a place to crash after a busy day. There are also handy supermarkets about 5 doors down for dinner if you need to cook.
    The only thing that stops this being a 5 star review was that the cleanliness of the shower and bathroom in general left a lot to be desired, don't know whether there was a problem with the drainage but it wasn't very clean at all..
    However. This wasn't a serious problem, and Federica was extremely helpful, giving advice on the best route into the city, and accommodating with check in times. Sadly we never met but were greeted by her friend Christian who gave tips on visiting places and cycling tours!
    The perfect little home for 4 days :)
    Thanks Federica!

    TIP- at the end of the road next to the Palau de la Musica is a tapas restaurant - I think called Tosca with very inexpensive tapas and cocktails only €4!! Don't get tapas anywhere else, they were superb and the most alcoholic Caipirinhas I've ever had! :)

  • Had a lovely stay in Barcelona! The apartment was perfect for what we needed. 1 really comfortable double bed, 1 sofa bed (clikclak) and 1 single fold out bed. It was central and easy to find. We spent most of our time in the city centre rather than the apartment, but I'd say there was only one negative- the hot water ran out after 1 shower at a time! I would stay here again as it was great value for money!

  • Great stay in Barcelona! Federica's apartment is in the perfect location, just a short stroll from almost everything. We stayed there for 5 nights and were able to explore the city by foot and find amazing restaurants just a short walk for our doorstep. I love the little alleys and winding paths in Barcelona this apartment is located on one of the larger ones but is nestled in the heart of this vibrant city, it is clean, very comfortable and super accessible. Great value for money. Federica was flexible with our check in and made checking out super easy, I would return here with out I doubt!

  • Surprised they charge a 30€ cleaning fee and when I got in the fridge and oven were so dirty I had to clean them my own...
    The photo is obviously photoshoped because it doesn´t have that much light...
    The location is really good, 5min walk from important spots.
    The street was noisy, specially in the early morning, having the windows open.

    Me sorprendió que nos cobrasen 30€ y al ver el estado de la nevera y horno tuviésemos que limpiarlos nosotros mismos..
    El piso no es tan luminoso como aparece en la foto ni un dia super soleado.
    El piso se encuentra céntrico en un barrio agradable a pesar de su apariencia.
    Un poco ruidoso por la mañana, al tener las ventanas abiertas y estar en un primer piso.

  • I found the apartment to be charming and clean as expected, once inside. Don't let the exterior door fool you, all of Barcelona is covered in graffiti. I loved the location and being just above the street which is very active late into the night. But I am one who loves this kind of thing. If you want quiet, it may not work for you. But this is the area if you want to experience Old Barcelona. Great cafes and tapas bars. Only drawback is that the building seemed to be under renovation. When this is complete, it will be a better experience.
