Unfortunately, Anna and Vince were absent when we arrived in Barcelona, but we were greeted by their friend who showed us how everything works in the apartment. Frederic was very nice and helpful. The place was just stunning, exactly like on the pictures - fresh, clean, cosy and fully equipped! Location was perfect and the view from the balcony breathtaking. I don't need to bother myself for searching a new place in the future trips to Barcelona - I'll be more than happy to visit these place again :)
Appartement très bien situé près de la Sagrada Familia.
Calme, très bien restauré et équipé.
Accueil très chaleureux, contact à Barcelone aimable et disponible.
It was the perfect experience. The apartment was exactly as described: comfortable, well-situated and spacious. We were greeting and oriented as soon as we arrived, and our stay could not have been more perfect. Loved the nearby restaurants, the views of Sagrada Familia, and the ease of getting anywhere. Highly, highly recommended.
We had a great stay at Anna & Vince's flat in Barcelona. Anna greeted us and she was wonderful -- She explained the heating system and walked use through everything we needed to know. We loved the flat and the location. It is amazing to stand on the balcony and look at the Sagrada Familia! Thank you for a great stay! We hope we can make it back some time soon.
And, thank you for making everything so easy and clear as we booked our stay.
Schöne Wohnung in einer tollen Lage. Die Kommikation mit Frederic hat wunderbar funktioniert. Wir würden das Appartement bei einem weiteren Barcelona-Besuch wieder buchen und können somit eine Empfehlung aussprechen.
Fabulous Apartment Sagrada Familia was good in many ways. Comfortable beds, good location, view of Sagrada Familia from the balcony, great cafe and bakery Puiggros just across the pedestrian street, quaint little lift, good security. Unfortunately we had some problems which spoiled our stay. There was a major plumbing leakage in the middle of the night and the electricity supply is poor with the fuse blowing whenever the heater was on and we wanted to use another appliance. The first time the fuse blew was in the night and we were left fumbling in the dark looking for the fuse box. Turning the heaters off was a big problem because the apartment is very cold in winter. So the poor electricity supply really was an issue. Fredric was sympathetic and extremely helpful when we had problems. He was always available and went out of his way to help us. He was there to greet us and helped by ordering a taxi for us on our last day. Overall the apartment is lovely- just like in the pictures but the electricity supply and other little details like worn faded towels and no bedspread in the second bedroom really let it down. We are disappointed not to be able to rate the apartment more highly.
We were met by Frederic who explained the aspects of the apartment and gave some recommendations for the area. Everything was as described -- a well-equipped kitchen and bathroom. Local bakers, market, restaurants, and just a few blocks to the Metro system. A more residential area that allows you to get away from the heavily touristy areas.
We found the apartment to be chilly -- there are two small space heaters, one for each bedroom, so we had to keep moving them from bedrooms to living/dining areas to feel warm in the cold evenings and mornings.
The second bedroom was hard to navigate. The queen-size bed is up against one wall, so with two people, one would have to crawl over the other to get in and out. There is a large wall unit, so very little space left. The only other furniture was one of the dining chairs, which had to be moved to get to the window or to move the heater.
The only other caveat I would point out is that if you are short (I am only 5 feet tall) you will have trouble reaching things -- I could not reach the glasses or small plates. My traveling companion was able to help out, so just something to consider.
Thanks you Ronda for your review.
I am sorry you found the flat to be chilly but I think you didn't notice the AC heating in the living/dining room which is the main source of heat in the flat (+ 2 portable heaters, + heater in the bathroom).
Regarding the difficulty to navigate in the 2nd bedroom, Anna & I gave the priority to a big confortable bed in order for our guests to have a great night sleep after a long day visiting Barcelona. I just want to mention that you can see how the bedroom look like in the pictures on the Airbnb flat description.
Finally, we will consider your advice and buy a small step-stool. Although the apartment has standard measures the step-tool will help.
Best, Anna & Vince
