Great experience, perfect neighborhood, much space. Deserves triple recommendation! Esther was a nice host, provided the appartment with the first food and drinks. Great.
Thank you, it was really perfect! Isabella
We greatly enjoyed our stay at Esther’s place. The apartment is absolutely charming, spacious and very thoughtfully equipped with everything you might need for a comfortable stay. It is located in one of Barcelona’s loveliest neighbourhoods, El Born, and overlooks the Santa Maria del Mar church (in the evening you can see the church’s stained glass windows lit up from the inside — an amazing sight!). Once again, we’d like to thank Esther, who is indeed a really sweet person and a fantastic host — friendly, caring and accommodating. We highly recommend Esther’s place and hope to stay there again someday.
We had an amazing stay at Esther's apartment! It is in great condition, spacious, light and with a fantastic view over the church square. We were a group of four and we felt very comfortable there. Esther is a great host.
Area is fantastic with lots of interesting places to visit!
Definitely a great choice to stay!
Esther is a wonderful host. She was helpful, provided us with all the information we needed to get to the apartment and made us feel welcomed the second we arrived. If you want to be right in the heart of Barcelona with a lot of tapas bars, shops, and sites at your door, this apartment is perfect. We were able to walk everywhere. The apartment is very spacious, clean, and located in a bustling square next to the Santa Maria del Mar church. Fun location, comfortable apartment, very nice host!
We had the most amazing week at Esthers apartment! Perfect location with a view over the square. It was so nice to have the three balcony doors open and hear what was happening outside, so cosy. It was very clean and Esther was the perfect host. She showed us around in the apartment and helped us with the wifi and airconditioning. Everything worked out as promised and we have absolutely no complains. Thank you Esther!
Esther's apartment is better than any hotel I could have booked! 5 girls stayed there for 4 days very comfortably because it was so spacious. I can say so many good things about this apartment but here are the basics: it's clean, great location (you are right next to St. Maria Del Mar church) and very lively area (it can get loud at night, but that did not bother any of us - you're on vacation for goodness sakes, who would want to go to bed early!?), it's walking distance to metro and beach, great for people watching from balcony (if you like to sit back with a glass of wine at night or morning coffee). The kitchen was very functional and had everything you would need to cook meals.
So now that we know how amazing this apartment is, I would like to leave a few comments about Esther. She is the sweetest and warmest host we have come across! She was at the apartment to welcome us and orient us around the area. She welcomed us with a delicious bottle of wine and even put some food in the fridge for is to refresh ourselves! Esther's kindness and generosity was greatly appreciated by all. She is a very helpful host and was quick to respond to emails if you have any questions. She even arranged a taxi pick up that would accommodate 5 people back to airport which we greatly appreciated.
Overall, the apartment is as amazing as it looks in photos, and Esther is just such a lovely host! We recommend this apartment for anyone who is looking for a place that feels like a home. I would definitely stay at Esther's apartment again!
Our stay at Esther's apartment was wonderful. We found the location of the apartment in El Born ideal and close to everything that you need to enjoy the sites and atmosphere of vibrant Barcelona. The apartment is clean and spacious with a homely feel. Although we were unable to meet Esther a close friend of hers showed us around the apartment and was very helpful. Esther very generously provide us with a bottle of wine which we enjoyed while looking out from the small balcony overlooking the plaza in front of the Santa Maria del Mar cathedral. We would recommend Esther's apartment to anyone visiting Barcelona. Wayne & Lorraine
Séjour inoubliable notamment grâce à la qualité de l'appartement d'Esther. Nous y étions généreusement attendus, rien ne nous a jamais manqué! L'appartement est très bien situé, avec vue sur une charmante petite place où il y a toujours de l'animation. Nous pouvions visiter et aller à la plage à pied, ce qui était parfait! Nous reviendrons! Merci Esther!
Le séjour chez Esther s'est avéré une réussite complète! Nous avons d'abord beaucoup apprécié la qualité et la chaleur de l'accueil de notre hôtesse, qui s'est montrée pleine de gentillesse et d'attentions à notre égard. Ensuite, c'est l'appartement et, surtout, son emplacement, qui nous ont séduits! Le logement était suffisamment grand pour une famille de quatre, deux adultes et deux jeunes enfants, et superbement situé, à proximité d'innombrables attractions. Le quartier El Born a été un immense coup de cœur pour toute notre famille, un quartier vivant, effervescent et magnifique. Bref: si nous revenons un jour à Barcelone, nous espérons avoir la chance de pouvoir relouer l'appartement d'Esther, en tous points idéal. Un sincère merci a vous, chère Esther!
