I do not know which to praise first; Ruben, the apartment, or the neighborhood. They were all top notch.
Ruben was a fantastic host. His attention to our individual needs as a guest was impressive. His communication was unsurpassed. Although staying in Ruben's apartment feels much like being handed the keys to a friends place while the friend is away, Ruben was always available when needed.
The attention to detail in the apartment was fantastic. I had one night of dining at "home". The apt had absolutely everything I would have used at my own home to create a great meal, except the food of course, but actually, there was even some of that. Olive oil, sugar, milk, herbs, pepper/salt, etc. We even had proper glasses for our lovely Spanish wine.
The neighborhood was pretty common for Barça. Plenty of activity yet quiet for sleeping, charming shops, bakeries, grocery markets, vegetable markets, banks, art, fine dining, as well as ethnic street food shops. I never felt unsafe. Getting around town is about as easy as it gets from this location. The Metro is within walking distance, as well as buses. Ruben leaves plenty of maps & info in the apartment for one to be more than able to get around. Again...attention to detail.
I was thinking about becoming a host myself. Following Ruben's lead I can't go wrong.
We had a great stay in this really nice apartment: clean, quiet, great location, close to the metro and lots of restaurants and bars around. Ruben was a great host and we had everything we needed (dishwasher, washing mashine, towels, ...). I absolutely recommend the place!
Although I did not meet Ruben his communications were timely and informative. The apartment is absolutely perfect for a couple with a real wow factor. The bed is extremely comfortable, the bathroom is something you would expect from a 5 star boutique hotel, the lounge is comfortable and well-eqipped and the lovely terrace is the icing on the cake. It is very well located with handy shops and near to all the fine bars and eateries of the Gracia district. I would have no hesitation in returning and recommending the apartment to friends.
Hemos pasado unas vacaciones increibles en el piso de Ruben, primero que todo, la localizacion perfecta, cercana a parques, Sagrada Familia, y muy bien comunicada para la ciudad de Barcelona, una gran variedad de supermercados, restaurantes, bares, terrazas, etc.
Zona muy tranquila y segura.
Al piso en si no le falta detalle, ya que esta completamente equipado y con todos los lujos, un baño excelente, con una bañera muy amplia, muy comodo, con un gran espacio, igual que el vestidor. El salon es muy amplio y funcional, realmente acogedor.
Toda nuestra estadia fue excepcional por las comodidades que ofrece este piso.
Esta cuidado hasta el minimo detalle.
Respecto a Ruben, nos ha brindado un trato muy personal, siempre muy atento y pendiente del minimo detalle.
Este piso lo recomendamos al 100% como uno de nuestros favoritos de la ciudad de Barcelona.
We have spent an incredible holiday in the floor of Ruben, first of all, the perfect location, close to parks, Sagrada Familia, and very well connected to the city of Barcelona, a variety of supermarkets, restaurants, bars, terraces, etc..
Very quiet and safe area.
On the floor itself does not lack detail, as this fully equipped with all the luxuries, excellent bathroom with a large bath, very comfortable, with a large space, like the dressing. The living room is very spacious and functional, really cozy.
Our entire stay was exceptional for the amenities offered in this floor.

Great Place to stay :)
El apartamento cumplió todas las expectativas, es un lugar acogedor y confortable, en el encantador barrio de Gracia. El apartamento tiene todas las facilidades y comodidades posibles, fue un lujo poder pasar allí unos días, una experiencia genial. El trato por parte del propietario perfecto y atento a todos los detalles. Lo recomendamos 100%. Esperamos poder volver pronto!
It was very nice and practical to stay in Ruben's appartment. Everything was ready when we arrived and we exchanged messages by email. The place is confortable and very spacious, close to a lot of interesting things. The terrace is another advantage. Thank you Ruben!
This was the perfect city escape thanks to this fantastic apartment. It was equipped with literally everything we required. The giant bath tub and amazonian shower were the highlights and made for a relaxing trip. The area is typically Catalan, quiet and authentic. Ruben is a very organised and conscientious host. We would definitely return.
Die Wohnung von Ruben im Stadtteil Gràcia ist absolut empfehlenwert! Man fühlt sich beim Eintreten schon heimisch. Alles ist sehr sauber und gemütlich eingerichtet.
Die Wohnung ist komplett ausgestattet, sogar Verbrauchsartikel wie Küchenrolle, Toilettenpapier, Spülmaschinentabs, Seife und Duschbad sind vorhanden.
Die Gegend ist sicher und in unmittelbarer Nachbarschaft gibt es eine Bäckerei und ein Supermarkt, sowie einige Restaurants in Laufnähe. Wir fanden es schön, nach einem trubeligen Tag im Zentrum in diese Oase der Ruhe (website hidden)àcia selbst hat uns gut gefallen, eine bunte Mischung von Künstlern, Studenten und älteren Menschen, schöne kleine Läden, einige Plätze mit Bars & Cafes!
Wenn wir noch einmal nach BCN reisen, kommen wir ganz sicher zurück zu Ruben.
Ruben ist sehr aufmerksam, freundlich und bemüht, hat im Vorfeld alle Fragen schnell beantwortet und war vor Ort um uns den Schlüssel zu übergeben. Einen besseren Gastgeber kann man sich nicht wünschen! PERFEKT!
My wife and I stayed at Ruben's lovely apartment and loved every minute there. It has everything you need in a vacation and more. Ruben invested a lot in design in every little detail and to make you feel at home. The location in Gracia is excellent. Ruben was a great host, explaining about the apartment and giving us tips about the neighborhood. We would definitely love to stay there again next time we are in Barcelona.
We had a great stay at Ruben's apartment! The apartment is very cool and extremely spacious. It's very close to the trendy bars and cafes of Gracia. It takes no time at all to reach other areas in Barcelona. Would love to have stayed for longer! Ruben was kind enough to let us check out late for an evening flight and was very responsive to my many emails before our stay. All in all a great trip!
