It was an amazing and simple experience with Alex. He takes the extra step to leave an abundance if info for visiting travelers and is very helpful in answering questions. The place is very very clean, bright and a was a great base of operations for a visit to a lively and beautiful city.
We loved our stay! The apartment was so spacious with tons of natural light. The kitchen and bathroom were very clean and updated. Alex spent time with us when we arrived to talk over different areas, go over maps, talk transportation and show us his recommended restaurants. We went to 3/5 he recommended and they were INCREDIBLE! You can tell they really want to make sure you have a great experience. We would recommend this place to anyone we know!
The location of the apartment was very good, you can walk many major places. The apartment was well decorated but it is an old building so you can hear noises from neighbours. The apartment was clean but not super clean. 4/5
Even I have no chance to meet Gemma and
Alex, they still very care about our situation. The apartment is so cozy and it also has a really good location. I can walk to quit lots of tourist spot in 15-20 mins. It makes me save a lot of transportation fee! About the environment of the house, there are lots of 24 hrs small supermarket and one Carrefour nearby. Although the location is so close to city center, it still very quiet. Gemma and Alex are also very considerate host. They help me to book the taxi to airport. It's very convenient for us especially when we know nothing about Catalonian.
Très gentil propriétaire qui était patient avec nous pour nous donner des informations/conseils de Barcelone :) L'appartement était très bien équipé grâce au propriétaire qui a pensé à tous les détails que nous on y pensait même pas :P je le recommande à 100%.
房东人很好也很耐心，给我们的旅行提供了不少建议，房子的配置很齐全很齐全，个人感觉房子要比照片里更好看 :) 非常值得推荐！
We absolutely loved staying at Gemma and Alex's apartment! We met with Alex's sister, Laia, for check-in. She was really nice and gave us a map of the city and gave us some great recommendations. Alex also has a lot of travel books and guides if you're looking for things to do in the city.
We were visiting Barcelona for our honeymoon for 9 days, and we really loved the conveniences that this apartment offered over a hotel. Having a washer was great, especially for a longer stay. I also loved that we could cook a few meals in the kitchen when we didn't feel like eating out. The wifi worked wonderfully, even faster than my internet at home! There are a two convenience stores beside the apartment, so you can grab snacks or anything you might need without going too far.
The location of the apartment is great - a 5 minute walk to Sagrada Família, and a short walk to the Verdaguer metro station, which is very easy to navigate!
We would definitely recommend staying at Gemma and Alex's. Barcelona is a beautiful city with lots to see and do, we can't wait to go back!
We were greeted by Alex's sister who was extremely hospitable and gave us lots of very usual information about the local area. The apartment was perfect for our family ( 2 adults and 2 children). Location was ideal and very quite. Would defiantly recommend.
Thank you for having us!
