Fernando's apartment ist really great! We were 6 people staying there for about a week, which was crowded but very cosy.
The apartment is walkable distance to the historic centre Gothic and to the ocean.
I would definitely recommend the place.
We really enjoyed our stay at Fernando’s apartment in Barcelona. The apartment is sparkling clean and very well situated in the Eixample district of Barcelona. It was no more than a 2 minute walk to the metro station and the AeroBus stop for the airport (€5.90). We bought a T-10 ticket for the metro which was less than 10 euros and good for 10 trips. The ticket can be used by anyone so we only needed one ticket for the two of us. The metro is super-efficient and you can pretty much be anywhere in Barcelona in 20 mins or less. There is a grocery store around the corner with numerous bakeries in the neighborhood. There are cafes and Tapas bars on every corner so there were plenty of options for food and wine. It is probably a 15 min walk to Las Ramblas and the Botinquere market or you can simply take the train to the Liceu station. We arrived at 9:00 am in the morning and Fernando was kind enough to meet us and let us check in early. He was very thoughtful and stocked the fridge with some breakfast items that include bread, butter, jam, orange juice, water and coffee. That was much appreciated as we were tired and hungry after our long trip. The kitchen is fully stocked with everything you need for self-catering so you have everything you need for a wonderful holiday. We would certainly stay here again on our next trip to Barcelona.
We had a fantastic 4-day stay at Fernando and Alejandro's apartment. The location is perfect to use as a base for exploring the city by foot or metro and is very easy for the airport. Alejandro met us at the flat (Fernando was out of town) and was very friendly and charming. He gave us lots of tips for good places to eat which we took up and we had great tapas everywhere at reasonable prices too. He also gave us excellent advice on buying advance tickets to avoid queuing at the Sagrada Familia and as a result we had an amazing visit there. He also kindly supplied essentials such as bread and milk which was appreciated.
The only negatives for us were an overwhelming smell of stale cigarette smoke throughout the apartment, and a noisy resident directly above which prevented us sleeping until the small hours - but if you are night owls/deep sleepers, or smokers, those won't bother you.
Overall we would highly recommend the apartment and would stay again. Many thanks for all your help Alejandro - we had a truly great time and will definitely return to Barcelona.
Fernando and Alejandro were waiting for us at the apartment when we arrived on Monday morning - they were very friendly and showed us into the apartment. They took the time to show us where everything was and how it worked, and even provided coffee, jam, and bread for our first morning! They gave us directions to the grocery store and also recommended a great restaurant for us to try in the neighborhood.
The apartment is excellent - we were there for 3 weeks and it was perfect for our time in Barcelona. The wifi signal was very strong - it allowed me to work from the apartment with no hassles. The air conditioner works great, and the bathroom/shower were the best I've had in Europe.
The location is also great - just a couple of minutes to the Urgell stop on the L1 metro line, and a block from the Aerobus stops - Gran Via and Sepulveda. 10 minutes walking to Placa Espanya and 15-20 minutes walking to Placa Catalunya.
Thank you to Fernando and Alejandro! We had a fantastic time in Barcelona, and if we come back we will definitely stay in this apartment again.
Cheers! Liz and Brad
Very stylish place... Easy access to everywhere and easy walk to the best parts of town...
The host was also very nice, helpful and easy to communicate with... I recommend this place to anyone who is going to barcelona for the first time and also to those looking for a local experience.
Alex was a great host, I lost the keys at one point and he came to get another set cut within half an hour.
I stayed here for three weeks. The apartment was immaculate in presentation and cleanliness and had great style and all necessary household items were at hand. I liked the patio outside, there is cute table which seats 4. It is also in a great location, easy to get to from the airport and close to all the action in the city.
I would seriously want to stay here again if I were to return to Barcelona.
A really enjoyed my stay in the apartment. For me, that likes a private place with all the amenities, is was perfect. I was able to work from home thanks to a good WiFi.
The apartment has a really nice interior design with a fully equipped kitchen. Water, coffee, and even breakfast was already in the kitchen when i arrived.
The location is great, only a few minutes walk from Urgell metro. Or an easy walk to Plaza Catalunya.
Fernando was a great host with fast communication, and made sure my stay was great!
We stayed in Fernando's place for a week in early May 2013. We were well welcomed upon arrival. Fernando even got us some bread, milk and jam for our first breakfast!
We were traveling with our 10 month old baby and Fernando made sure to get us everything we needed for the baby (crib and high chair).
The location of the apartment is great, in a quiet neibourhood but close to Placa Espanya, Placa Catalunya and subway stations.
Stayed with 2 of my Boys.The apartment was as described.very comfortable & tastefully furnished.
Fernando met us to hand over the keys & go over things.Had loads of literature to browse & plan your days.Fernando even provided us with juice, milk,bread & coffee.Would definitely return.
Fernando and his associate Alejandro were both excellent hosts. I found the apartment clean when I arrived. They were most accommodating with regard to my late evening arrival and I found next day's breakfast and other welcoming touches left for me. The flat is very well located and served my needs for exploration as well as rest perfectly!
