I was in barcelona for work and i was looking for a place to stay with just the confort to have a night of sleep and my usual routine of the morning. and this apartment was perfect for that. I didn't really have the opportunity to really enjoy the full service that offer this place cause i didn't spend more than 6 hours per day in it, but I could see that every things was think for enjoying my stay.
If you are looking for something easy and really clean, this is the place.
Wonderfully friendly hosts, beautiful and tastefully decorated accommodation and amenities, pure comfort, great location. Both Rod and Estan were founts of knowledge on the best places to visit in Barcelona. Hard not to gush :) My wife and I hope to be back in the future and we'll recommend Rod & Estan's Atelier Barcelona to anyone!
Great Flat, perfect Location, would love to stay there again!
Loved this place. Everything from the hosts, to the location, to the small details were perfect. We felt so satisfied with the quality of the apartment and it really is in the perfect place in the city. We never had to use the underground, as everywhere we wanted to go was in walking distance. Even though the apartment is in the center of the city, it was very quiet and felt very private, with a sweet balcony full of plant and a nice sitting area. Estanis was very helpful and was never annoyed at how often we wanted to chat with him :) Would recommend this place 1000%, and we can't wait to go back!
Clean, well-furbished apartment, great location, generous and informative hosts, but never intrusive. Very highly recommended.
House very clean and very very comfortable! More comfortable than mine (although, sleeping, my girlfriend always pulled the covers)! Rod is very precise in home's instructions and tips on Barcelona!
Thank you Rod!
Notre voyage à Barcelone était plus que spontanée, on a réservé l'appartement le soir avant l'arrivée et Rod nous a envoyé la confirmation et toute l'information nécessaire en quelques minutes!
Rod et Estanis sont très chaleureux, gentils et discrets, l'accueil est parfait. Ils sont à l'écoute des gens et ils font tout pour que votre séjour corresponde à maximum aux buts de votre voyage. Rod a passé un moment pour s'assurer qu'on a tout compris et qu'on a tout dont on a besoin.
L'appartement se trouve dans l'une des voies centrales de Barcelone, mais dans un coin calme, il n'y a aucun bruit. Tout est très confortable et réfléchi dans les moindres (website hidden) pas hésiter à réserver.
Its all perfect! Everything thought about us is in hand. "You are kooking and need a spoon like....... This one is in front"
Everything is in front. And Rod and Stanis are veery nice peple! So kind, helpfull etc...
Our stay at the Atelier was awesome! Estanis (and Rod who we didn't get to meet) had thought of everything making the Atelier a perfect option for our trip to Barcelona. The apartment is centrally located, was clean and offered all the amenities of a 5 star hotel. We recommend the Atelier to anyone.
For a Barcelona short or long stay this is the place to be!
Spacious, clean, creative, cozy and quiet apartment in the middle of sizzling Barcelona. Nearby subway or taxi, a variety of eateries, shopping and Gaudi´s masterpieces all within walking distance.
Professionally hosted by the most friendly Rod and Estan.
look forward to come back!
